Yes, and all those AIDS benefits aren't for upper class single adult males suffering from overindulgence, they're for kids in Africa, see . . . .
I set my parameters for child mortality and population as a whole, in Sub-Saharan Africa, from 1960 to the present. Since AIDS is such a highly reported epidemic over there among the kiddies and adults, the death trend should be reflective of said disease d' jour. What do you think I found?
That's right, no increase in child mortality at any time, just a decrease. There was likewise no reduction in population at any time, just a constant increase.
So, will someone tell me how such a mass killer is so ineffective? Maybe, just maybe, the AIDS epidemic is only a political reality. Since you can't justify billions of dollars in international welfare to a skeptical public, you can justify the looting of the taxpayer by saying (over and over again) ...it's for the children of AIDS parents ...AIDS isn't just for homosexual men spreading the virus through the thin, easily-torn membrane of the colon, African heteros get it too ...if we don't stop it there, we'll be next ...these people aren't suffering from ignorance, poor sanitation, immoral lifestyles, environmental pathogens, poverty, drugs or internecine warfare, AIDS IS KILLING THEM.
But in my bias & ignorance, maybe someone can enlighten me as to how an epidemic grows a population in all categories and leads to longer life expectancy in all age groups?
