Ever heard of Chagas?

Chagas DiseaseProbably not, until recently it was considered rare in the United States.

From the Mayo Clinic:  Chagas (CHAH-gus) disease is an inflammatory, infectious disease caused by a parasite found in the feces of the triatomine (reduviid) bug. Chagas disease is common in South America, Central America and Mexico, the primary home of the triatomine bug. Rare cases of Chagas disease have been found in the southern United States, as well.

Also called American trypanosomiasis, Chagas disease can infect anyone, but is diagnosed most often in children. Left untreated, Chagas disease later can cause serious heart and digestive problems.

Treatment of Chagas disease focuses on killing the parasite in acute infection and managing signs and symptoms in later stages. You can take steps to prevent the infection, too.

“Rare cases” my ass!  That was then, this is now.

I did a Google News Search on “chagas”.  The first five pages of search results contained not a single reference to “chagas” by the Mainstream Media – unless, that is, you consider Al Jazeera or FOX to be mainstream.

You might (should) wonder why it’s being ignored.  My view is that publicity might throw a monkey-wrench in our Dear Leader’s soon-to-happen Executive Order opening the border floodgates to all of Latin America.

Unemployment among African-Americans is currently DOUBLE that of White Americans.  All of the illegal aliens come here to work.  Most of them find work.  Work that could be done by unemployed US citizens.  I’m not talking about jobs which require anything more than a minimum working knowledge of English and a desire to work.  Not the engineers, etc that the evil corporations are begging for, the jobs that uneducated, unqualified-for-anything-else Americans could do.  Of course they have no reason to want or look for work as long as we provide entitlements which guarantee continued support by them of those who are “fighting” for them.

Another “benefit” of importing these disease-ridden illegals is it will certainly create a demand for health services (jobs) so maybe more people will sign up for the failure known as Obamacare.

So, it’s an job program…  Sounds like a plan.


I take full responsibility for my own opinions, comments and slurs against asshats.  I'm just another guy with just another opinion. Although, I may be turning into my father who my mother always said was 'the world's foremost authority."
