Well, their fans are as dumb as they are, so why not?

This is not a shot at those with AIDS/HIV but just a simple question:

Is AIDS preventable??

"We're trying to sort of make the remark: Why do we care so much about the death of one celebrity as opposed to millions and millions of people dying in the place that we're all from?" said Leigh Blake, the president and co-founder of ‘Keep a Child Alive.’

50 million+ kids dead in America from abortion and the Left never sees any reason to change course.

I wonder how much $$$ these “celebs” have taken out of their personal pockets for the cause? Seems to me that with the name involved, they could come up with $1m pretty easily amongst themselves.

I am so torn here — if there were ever a reason to NOT donate to a charity, this would SO be it!

I think this is a great idea. People will pay millions just to get these morons to shut up.

They are hiding behind children with AIDS in this one. Hollywood finally found a reason to like kids. Apart from the older directors and recording stars who have “playgrounds” at home.

Can’t fault the kids for contracting the disease. Then again, they are the innocent victims of abortion as well which is preventable.

Money isn’t the solution. The Act Up activists blamed Reagan for “not doing enough”. 3 decades later there still is no cure. Preventative measures like closing the gay bathhouses were called “mean”, “cruel”, “homophobic”.

Many celebrities sleep around with abandon, promote the perversion of homosexual practices and appear in promiscuous and hyper-sexed forms of ‘entertainment’.

Then they turn around and promote AIDS awareness?

Only in to Hollyweird...

1,000 celebrities x $1,000 each = $1,000,000.

But instead the public is supposed to kick in $10 per head. 100,000 citizens...

Gee, do you think these folks can make through the day?

Will they be the masters of their domains?

Honestly, this is so bloody self indulgent, it’s really off the old BS Meter, isn’t it?

They say that onscreen sex and an entertainment press that shows them leaving limos without panties on have no impact on the culture.

But tobacco use in movies somehow “glamorized” it.

It is unless you receive tainted blood or if your husband or wife cheats and you don’t know it. However, if we only took care of those people, we would only need about a couple million dollars to help them and that is worth it but these other folks.......forget it.

My wife and I took an AIDS vaccine that they offer down at our church.

World AIDS Day and the annual “Life On Mars!” NASA charade come so close together this year.

Check your wallet.

Everyone has AIDS!
AIDS AIDS AIDS!
AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS!
Everyone has AIDS!

And so this is the end of our story
And everyone is dead from AIDS
It took from me my best friend
My only true pal
My only bright star (he died of AIDS)

Well I’m gonna march on Washington
Lead the fight and charge the brigades
There’s a hero inside of all of us
I’ll make them see everyone has AIDS

My father (AIDS!)
My sister (AIDS!)
My uncle and my cousin and her best friend (AIDS AIDS AIDS!)
The gays and the straights
And the white and the spades

Everyone has AIDS!
My grandma and my dog ‘ol blue (AIDS AIDS AIDS)
The pope has got it and so do you (AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS)
C’mon everybody we got quilting to do (AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS)
We gotta break down these baricades, everyone has
AIDS! x 20

For these “self important” twerps, it is a big deal to not be digitally broadcasting that they are attention getting whores, so they call attention to themselves to be indulged by the media instead.

Lazy celebs

At least Martin Sheen spent the night on a sidewalk grate to fix homelessness.

Don’t think it helped though.

Dang, if those first 3 they listed died for real would that necessarily be a bad thing?

Typical stupid liberal feel good nonsense. It won’t solve the problem and it doesn’t ask the people responsible for their own problems to change their behavior.

one of the bands i follow on facebook suggested a more reasonable alternative. everytime somone retweets, replies or comments on whatever social media engine the celeb is signed up for, the celeb should donate a given amount.

As much as anything, this is a homo promotion issue. Gays remain number 1 in HIV spreading, syphilis, gonorrhea, Hep B, Chancroid, Herpes, etc. Hopefully, homowood will follow the rest of the deviant crowd over the cliff and leave normal people alone.
