Southeast Missourian ^ | 11/6/92

A woman has filed a lawsuit in Michigan federal court claiming Magic Johnson gave her the AIDS virus in June 1990...

I don't recall the outcome of this lawsuit, but with the media screaming like teenage girls about how Sterling is wrong that Johnson "doesn't have AIDS", it ought to be recalled that he may have actually spread a deadly condition...something the media won't research or tell you, now that they have celebrated those who practice sodomy.

The parties would not say if a settlement was reached. My guess is YES.

Once again, I have to quote Robert Heinlein: “The United States has become a place where professional athletes and entertainers are mistaken for people of significance.”

Sterling says this, Silver says that, Magic says this, Barkley says that. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Yep; “Bread and circuses”.

“or bread and games) (from Latin: panem et circenses) is metonymic for a superficial means of appeasement. In the case of politics, the phrase is used to describe the creation of public approval, not through exemplary or excellent public service or public policy, but through diversion; distraction; or the mere satisfaction of the immediate, shallow requirements of a populace,[1] as an offered “palliative.” Juvenal decried it as a simplistic motivation of common people.[2][3][4] The phrase also implies the erosion or ignorance of civic duty amongst the concerns of the commoner.”

AIDS is simply the outward manifestation of HIV... same as getting hit in the head is the HIV, where the lump from getting hit in the head is the AIDS

People who screw anything just to have an orgasm. Bisexual men (some married) cruise criagslist and other gay apps, sleep with other gay men who have slept with hundreds of other men who have slept with hundreds of women who have slept with hundreds of men....vicious circle. HIV could care less what you are are, your politics, your religion, your color or gender.

AIDS is an STD that can be heterosexualy or homosexually transmitted. It is also transmited by contaminated needles and blood products.

Incidence of heterosexual transmission is minuscule.

Supposedly heterosexual transmission is the main factor in Africa.

But the whole Africa AIDS epidemic is conflated with any and every other tropical disease and disease of malnutrition or poverty, with very poor diagnosis.

I still remember when Howard Stern went on Magic’s short-lived TV talk show and totally owned him.

Yes, he is. He's also a terrible communicator. On any given day, you can't know if he's ignorant, can't communicate what he's thinking, or both.

How many people got the aids virus from Donald Sterling?

Don’t get me wrong; Sterling is an A-Hole, but he hasn’t given anyone a life-threatening disease.
