Arkansas Investigates Mumps Outbreak With More Than 400 Possible Cases
Well, golly ..wonder where all these childhood diseases that we thought were eradicated have come from? Couldn’t be from all those squatters’ kids that schools are forced by the federal government to accept, endangering American children. Nah.
NOTHING will make the UNIPARTY and the FIrst MOslem by Fraud
more happy than sick American children. NOTHING!
There’s been a vaccine against mumps from way back.
Hmmm, seems like many of the ‘refugees’ have been resettled in the Rogers, Springdale area.
Oh my, what a coincidence - the reported cases of mumps are all from the ROGERS and SPRINGDALE school systems.
Hillary! hates lil’ chillen in Arkansas! She’s endangering their health letting gawd-knows-who-or-what into our country!
She wants children DEAD before or after birth. Except for HER kid and Grandkids, of course!
I wonder how many abortions Hillary! has had? You’d think she’d be wearing it as a Badge of Honor!
Outbreak? Like we really don’t know where it came from? Come on.
Turd world students bringing in diseases that used to be controlled by vaccination
50 bucks that patient zero was an illegal mexican invader or a moslem refugee.
NW Arkansas is particularly hard hit. It’s a major release point for unattended illegal children and refugees.
Back in my day, we got mumps and chicken pox. And we walked to school a mile uphill each way!
