Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control released data Wednesday revealing that 20 million new sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are diagnosed each year nationwide, costing some $16 billion in taxpayer funds.

Half of the 20 million new infections affect people ages 15 to 24 - who only make up a quarter of the population,l according to the statistics.

Human papillomavirus (HPV) tops the list as the most common infection followed by chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, herpes, hepatitis B, HIV and trichomoniasis.

Does that mean that through Obamacare we will be forced to pay for other people’s birth control, abortions, erectile dysfunction, sex changes AND venerial disease treatments?

well when many little girls are being brought up by the schools or lazy parents and told not to respect themselves , to be sluts as it;s called women’s power nas rights, when boys are told to just get it in there and when young kids are brought up thinking there is no responsibility , well of course this is the crap we get.

The left are insane, insanity is doing the same ting over and over and expecting a different result, whether it be spending, green energy or sex.

They cannot accept that their agenda and policies keep failing

Yes weird how in the 80’s when AID’s came out they quickly moved to get a cure and yet cancer whilst many good things have worked it still kills too many .

to put the 20 million in perspective, that’s roughly 33% of the population of the UK.

you think they think their policies are failing? they want to take the country down. moral decay is just one area of focus. they may say they don’t but their actions show otherwise.

they are fulfilling the goals of the communsit manifesto, whether they know it or not.

Teen son is going to a dance tonight.
Overheard hubby tell the kid on his way out the door this morning:

“No means No, Herpes is forever, if another dude puts the moves on you, though you might want to knock him out, run instead - he might have HIV. PS... have a good time!”

Awww...those father-son moments are priceless :-)

moral decay is just one area of focus.

Moral decay which they will deflect onto conservatives by saying that we won't approve "healthcare for all."

I have an underling at work with this attitude. She thinks we should just "give everyone healthcare." I feel like asking the glaring, unasked questions: WHO is the giver? WHO is "everyone?" For WHAT? WITH what?

Fifty years ago VD was virtually unknown around here. In the last thirty five years things have changed. You can’t pick up a skank at a bar without catching something.

And the elephant in the room is...

In 2011, African Americans had 17 times the reported gonorrhea rates as Whites.

Monogamy?!

Most of the people in the younger generations have no idea what that word means and many even think it is a silly idea.

You should see the looks I get when I tell them I have been married for 32 years and have only been with my wife. Some of them have actually called me a liar and that I must have had an affair at least once during that time. They refuse to believe me when I tell them I have never and will never cheat on my wife.

There is a serious lack of values in much of the younger generations.

this is also why companies are getting rid of men, schools have largely purged out men - real men - and why they are removing men from positions of power and also discourging men from college and not educating them properly in schools so as to not want to keep going - therefore not being ‘qualified’ to be in positions of power.

women go along with rules. men less likely to with idiotic rules.

Another elephant to ignore, albeit of smaller size...

In 2011, Hispanics had 2.1 times the reported gonorrhea rate as Whites.

“they are fulfilling the goals of the communsit manifesto...”

Spirited: It was Bakunin who said ‘we’ll unleash the devil in them,’ Marx who championed the devil, the Frankfurt School that systematized “unleashing the devil” and American progressives who set the “unleashing” program in motion.

Yes, progressives and their camp-followers are fulfilling the goals of Luciferians, but at best only a handful really know what they are doing. The rest of them are useful idiots.

But, but, but isn’t Obamacare’s mandate for contraceptives and morning after pills and abortions supposed to save us money??

Odd, isn’t it, how traditional values will always trump the liberals when talking about almost any of today’s societal problems. Monogamy and pre-marital abstinence is a remedy to all sorts of bad outcomes. It’s cheaper too!!!

known in England as Sh$$ burglers \

what ever way or what they;re called the fact is what they do is really disgusting and yet they think when people oppose them it;s based on religious grounds.

Their supporters I meet after pointing out what makes them different to us is their so called turn on’s for sex and how they like to get off pushing crap gets them all mad or makes them think about what they;re relaly supporting.

They;re not the happy go lucky fairy dancers who like to talk about womens fashion they try and make out to be, they;re just sick mentally unstable people who are turned on by feces

I hope the political/regulator class is enjoying its feminist divorce/cohabitation/homo regime. Have fun. Enjoy the slide.

Monogamy?!

On her anniversary, Mom mentioned it to a girl (in her 20s) that she worked with.

The girl's response? "You've been married for 40 YEARS?! To the SAME person????!"

:-) Mom and Dad are sneaking up on 50 years, now. Wonder what her co-worker would think about that.
