    WOW, never say that coming from people who live in filth. I suppose it’s Bush’s fault!

  • MrGoodWench

    Head AND Body lice.
    Yup, just like the TEA Parties 😀

  • savethenation

    I sure hope welfare or food stamps cover NIT or KWELL, if not, Portland you are about to suck up another expense from these lackeys.

  • MrGoodWench

    I know .. I know … Baaarnee Frank was there in that slum a few days ago

    Send in the Lightning Pest Control from 3 Stooges Ants in the Pantry….. (Go out and drum up business….. give them ants, und mice , und moths …all through their houses )>>> http://youtu.be/OYaooCjRRhw

    Too bad the poor things can’t get DDT powder any longer.

    Thanks, Rachel Carson.

  • Dave-O

    Protester vs. Head & Body lice.

    It’s hard to tell which is the more disgusting parasite.

  • John Cooper

    In the Army we learned the proper way to get rid of crab lice: Shave one half of your pubic area and light the other half on fire with lighter fluid. When the lice run over to the shaven side, stab them with an ice pick.

  • MrGoodWench

    You know what is the best, the most bestest treatment for lice ?
    😀 😀
    Ask any 3rd world slum dog , it works

  • paul52

    I thought crabs had better taste than this. I sympathize with the “galloping dandruff”. I like Cooper’s cure, though.

  • Patty

    Just desserts.

  • Dagobomb

    I imagine there is a crab infestation from the porta potties too. Bwahahaha

  • MrGoodWench

    Load all the vermin infested with lice on a plane,
    send the plane to North Korea ,
    and let NKorean quarantine facilities take care of the parasites .

  • Remco Kimber

    Up next, dysentery and cholera,

    Getting to be as dangerous as the Western Fronts trenches in WWI,

  • MrGoodWench

    Remco Kimber commented:
    Up next, dysentery and cholera,
    just like the camps of Haiti,
    but Haiti was destroyed by an earthquake .
    What is Portland’s excuse ?

  • Ella

    Wait till they all start getting diarrhea. The stench is going to be overwhelming, and it’s already bad now.

  • Susan

    Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of long-haired hippies! lol

  • Ace

    Why is the government of Portland allowing this filthy mob to trespass another minute?

  • Earthmover

    Put the pictures in the “Camping 2011” photo album! HAHAHAHAHA

  • M. Miller

    We already know about the free clinics doing booming business near OWS. Given this revelation about lice, you have to wonder how pervasive are STD infections and crab infestations since this information is confidential.

  • RickS

    So, does Obama also stand with the lice?

  • Ella

    Throw the entire mess in the Puget Sound.

  • Clutch

    Wow, the next thing you will be telling me is that fire is hot and water is wet! Who DIDN’T expect this to happen? Let’s just hope that the next phase isn’t the Black Plague (and no, that is not a reference to Obumbles) unless they can keep it confined to their camp.

  • MrGoodWench

    All those who think that tomorrow,
    TV and cable news+views stations will inform their viewers about these filthy events of
    Poopstock- 2011 over the weekend , raise your paws …..
    and those who think media will be giddy about Herman Cain and something that someone said about him and now doesn’t want to say anymore followed by how successful the Banxodus was on Sat –give yourself a pat on the back

  • Ginger

    I said this was coming! Scabies are next! A contagious skin disease marked by itching and small raised red spots, caused by the itch mite.

  • Molon Labe

    Almost as great a threat to the national well being as those who elect to report unsubstantiated and unidentified charges aginst Cain for political purposes.

    Head lice or smears? My bet is that smears are far worse than head lice.

  • Carbon Pootprint

    Oh those poor freaking Lice. Should we call PETA?

  • Ginger

    #27….. 😀

  • jim m

    Maybe they can get the Neo-Nazis from the Occupy protests in AZ to help out with a delousing station.

  • A guy walks into a doctor’s office in Portland with a parrot on his head. The parrot says, “I’ve been down at the ‘Occupy Portland’ rally. Can you cut this shanker off my A$$”?

  • ripcity

    I had to walk by their camp twice a few days ago and i could smell that odor for hours, like their stink got into my clothes. I have smelled cleaner barnyards.

  • Ella

    I heard the contractor is going to remove the porta potties tomorrow. Apparently they are being damaged. Where are they going to crap now?

  • myohmy

    Gross. All these savages not only brought violence, mental illness and rapes. They also brought diseases. Yukk!

  • Rock

    Ginger, agree, at the beginning of this mess I commented nature would take its course, these fools now are going to find out what living in a third world Socialist country really means, to bad many innocents will suffer from their foolish stupidity. And of course they will have no clue of what is transpiring.


    MrGoodWench commented:

    algie says that’s only really effective when followed by a lit match

    `o^o’ algie

  • Time to bring out the old Army delousing tents and the DDT powder! Oops – DDT is illegal. And since it’s lethal to annoying pests the OWS folks might do well to avoid it anyway.

  • Wm T Sherman

    “Head AND Body lice.”

    Hey, do it right or don’t do it at all.

    And where are the bed bugs? Maybe they’re too stoned to realize they’ve got them.

  • So, everyone who called them lousy was just premature?

  • Jayne on the Left Coast

    I’m with those who knew this was a coming soon. Plus dysentery., scabies, all the “dormitory” called illnesses and ick. Wouldn’t be surprised for an out break of Botulism and/or E-coli.

  • Ginger

    What is next is the providers (soros) etc, are slowly going to take away the things they have been providing for the occupiers. Water, food which will start coming less and less. The weather in parts of the country will be unbearable sooooo guess what happens? The occupiers start rebelling and taking from others in their camps and out! People around the camps lock your doors and be ready because they will panic expecially when their drugs start getting less and less!


  • Ella

    #39 Jayne – don’t forget typhus.

    We need to start calling for quarantines.

  • atticcellar

    I fail to see how this is newsworthy as lice outbreaks are common where large groups of people gather in close proximity including public schools. Even the cleanest person can be infected as they live on blood not filth..

    Bless the Lice’s hearts!! They didnt deserve this abuse!!!!

    I’m sure they would prefer to be in a cleaner enviroment.

  • Adi

    Bubonic plague is spread by fleas, so I guess they didn’t earn yet the “Flea Party” denominator and for now it is just the “Lice Party”.

    A matter of time though.

  • egoist

    They hate capitalism, yet want the modernity that it brought (industrial revolution) – a mere dozen decades ago. Prior to that, filth, disease, ratty hygiene and early death were common. Since these distasteful elements of history are no longer able to fit in the cracks between xyz-studies and tattoo / body piercing time demands, these tribes will have to go about learning it the easier (and cheaper) way: do nothing and fester; it will all consume you.

    So, what will our brave mayors do when cholera breaks out?

  • Seerak

    #41 Ella: Why stop there? Obviously these Occupation zones are not part of America in any real sense — e.g. rule of law. Perhaps we should take them at their word, that each Occupation is its own city, and set up border checkpoints along their periphery, and refuse reentry to those with communicable disease.

  • Conservative Ken

    And…If Clinton and Weiner show up they’re gonna the mother of all crab outbreaks.

    The answer is: Obama is a louse, so I guess he does….

  • Rock

    So whats the problem, the lice only want their fair share of the local blood. I thought these folks where all about sharing. Hey lice bed bugs, TB, STD, scabies, and all the other community diseases, its all there for the taking.
    My only question, if a epidemic should breakout will the political hacks who allowed this to fester be held accountable. I see lawsuits in the future, and the Holder Department of Justice will be powerless in those court rooms.

  • Buffalobob

    Too bad, if these progs didn’t ban DDT we could just fog them and cure their infestation. But as all thing prog, unintended consequences are a bitch. # John Cooper, you do realize that if these mokes read your cure they will most likely try it.

    #49 Rock – Pretty soon lice will be the least of their problems.

    To those of you who live next door to one of these diseased and bug infested camps, call your local Public Health department to complain incessantly. No sense in putting up with unnecessary health hazards.

    How Lice Thwarted Napoleon’s Invasion of Russia

    The fate of Napoleon’s Grand Army was sealed long before the first shot was fired. In the spring of 1812, more than 600,000 men marched towards Russia under the command of the diminutive Corsican — an army larger than the population of Paris at the time.

    Napoleon’s failed 1812 invasion of Russia has long been blamed on the weather. But a new theory argues that body lice were to blame.

    Napoleon’s failed 1812 invasion of Russia has long been blamed on the weather. But a new theory argues that body lice were to blame.
    The massive army was on its way to topple the Russian Czar Alexander I. Yet long before the fighting started, a few soldiers staggered out of the ranks and collapsed at the side of the road. Were the men drunk as skunks, or was something else at work?

    Given the sheer numbers of soldiers underway, no one took much notice of a few derelict drunks. Not until 200 years later did it come to light that these first casualites of Napoleon’s long march weren’t hopeless alcoholics but rather marked the beginning of the army’s downfall.

    That’s the claim of Stephan Talty, the American author who reconstructs the medical history of Napoleon’s doomed Russian campaign in his new book “The Illustrious Dead: The Terrifying Story of How Typhus Killed Napoleon’s Greatest Army.” Talty carefully documents why 400,000 men never made it home. Like few historians before him, he illuminates the critical role of a tiny enemy: the louse.

    In the end, the army’s back was broken by neither the Cossacks nor the merciless Russian winter but rather by typhus exanthematicus, spread by crawling parasites. That’s the conclusion of an investigation that began in 2001 with a gruesome discovery: A mass grave containing 2,000 corpses in the Lithuanian capital, Vilnius.

    Here’s some interesting information about body and head lice, found on headlice.org:

    The body louse produces up to 300 eggs, can live 10 days or more off the body, proliferates rapidly and disseminates quickly. Head lice have a lower fecundity rate, are less hardy, occur in lower numbers than body lice and are primarily limited to the younger ages.

    Those body lice are stubborn little suckers! One louse can produce 300 eggs! Wow! I wonder how our protesters are getting rid of them as there are no showers in their camps?

    Head AND Body lice.


    Couldn’t have happened to a more deserving bunch.

  • liz953

    Here are the facts….and it is clear that lack of basic cleanliness is causing the outbreak:

    Nits (the eggs of the head louse) are small yellowish-white, oval-shaped eggs that are “to the side of a hair shaft glued” at an angle
    Nits must be laid by live lice. You cannot “catch nits.”
    Once laid, it takes 7-10 days for a nit to hatch, and another 7-10 days for the female to mature and begin laying her own eggs.
    Head lice are clear in color when hatched, then quickly develop a reddish-brown color after feeding.
    Head lice are about the size of sesame seeds.
    Head lice have six legs equipped with claws to grasp the hair.
    Head lice are crawling insects. They cannot hop, jump, or fly.
    Head lice do not thrive on pets.
    Head lice are small, wingless insects which feed on human blood. They need human blood in order to survive.
    Head lice live for approximately 30 days on a host and a female louse may lay up to 100 nits (eggs).
    Head lice off of their human hosts will starve. In most cases, a head louse will not survive for more than 24 hours off of its human host.

    Well, it IS a gathering of parasites isn’t it? Why should lice be left out?

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    Some of the most basic problems of an army in the

    Field. Food shelter and hygiene. Hmmmm guess

    They failed the last one. Hair cuts, shaving and

    Bathing are essential. Moggots of a feather flock

    Together. Now your just disgusting.

  • Granny

    There is a REASON that health laws in all 50 states regulate things like the availability of showers, toilet facilities and the number of people who can live in a given amount of space. This would be one of them. There is also a reason that members of the US military tend to have extremely short hair. Ditto.

    Unfortunately, these people are going to be raining lice everywhere they go. Every business they go into will become infested. Everyone whose coat stands near where they hang their’s will become infested – and then take the infestation somewhere else. The ONLY way to get rid of the stuff is to wash every single item in that camp in hot water all at one time – or burn it to the ground – and delouse the entire bunch of them at once.

    No, you don’t have to be “dirty” to catch lice but living in substandard conditions definitely means you will likely keep them. Among other things, lice carry typhus and newer strains of lice are resistant to just about everything in the arsenal. This is a real public health EMERGENCY, not just a couple of cases of lice.

    Yes, eaglewingz08

    There are more lice than people so it was announced at the committee meeting that now the lice are the 99%.

    Wow! This would be news if it wasn’t an everyday occurrence in Oregon Public Schools.

    Lice is yucky said the average American who is $10,000 in debt, Oh Gross! said the lady who is three pay checks from leaving on the street. Couldn’t have happened to a nicer bunch. said the man and his wife who are trying to figuring out what brand of dog food they will be consuming for dinner when their social security checks quit coming because the 1% sold their money.

    Facts about head lice

    If you’re the parent or guardian of a PPS student — and chances are that you are! — you should know about head lice, especially if you have children in younger grades.

    Lice are small insects that are gray, brown or off-white in color. Head lice are a nuisance, but they do not cause disease or infection. Lice can lay eggs (nits) that firmly attach to hair shafts. Lice do not hop, jump or fly, but are fast crawlers. Anyone with clean or dirty hair can get head lice. Lice are not associated with poor hygiene or parent neglect. Pets do not get lice.

    Students with live lice are excluded from school and sent home with lice treatment information. (The school does not publicly identify students with lice.) They are readmitted to school after treatment and re-examination for live lice. Students with nits only will be allowed to attend school and monitored for reinfestation.

    Head-to-head contact is the most common way that lice are spread. Encourage your student not to share combs, brushes, hair ornaments or helmets and hats.

    You are encouraged to check your student regularly for head lice.

    Your school nurse can answer your questions about head lice. You can also go to the Multnomah Education Service District’s website, and enter “head lice resources” in the search box.

    This is obama’s Hope and Change; the fundamentally changed America he offered to deliver. Gone is the rule of law. Gone is respect for those who worked hard to get what they earned. Gone is any resemblance to the country the Founders established. Gone is America. In its place is anarchy, rape and (more than just metaphorically) body lice.

    My kid brought home head lice once. (While I had the flu, too.) Head lice is not necessarily an easy thing to eradicate; there are some very resistant strains.

    Ours was one of those. The only way we finally managed to get rid of them was by covering our heads in Vasoline and wearing a shower cap. (This smothered them.) In addition, of course, to disinfecting virtually the whole house.

    The vasoline stays in your hair for WEEKS, over many, many shampoos. In about three weeks, my daughter was looking almost like her old self again. It was over two months before I got most of it out of mine. I guess I was back to normal by three months.

    I have so far watched the video only to the point where the guy says, “Do they have the shampoo and stuff?” and is told yes, and says, “OK, good.”

    It’s not always that easy. I’m hoping in this case it isn’t, so maybe they will learn a lesson.

    (I’m terrible for that, I know.)

    The GPLAB will continue to monitor the situation.
