Dr. Thomas R. Frieden, left, commissioner of the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, discussing a rare strain of drug-resistant H. I. V. at a news conference.
This is only the beginning.
If we can not cure the common cold -- a simple virus there is no way we can cure Aids!
Well naturally viruses mutate, but lets hope it doesn`t get to a point where the AIDS virus can survive in air, because if that ever happened, it`s allll over.
It's a blood disease, cool your jets.
What about curtailing both anal sex and crystal meth use?!?! No! No! It's the lack of condoms which is at issue!
I also love the part where: The man, whose name was not released to protect his privacy,. This bozo has infected perhaps 100's of men due to his actions has HIS privacy is protected. What about the people he had physcial contact with? [I refuse to call this action SEX!] Don't they have any rights? They have a NEED to know!
If someone had fired a gun into the air shooting 100 bullets in the middle of an urban area would their name not be released to protect their privacy?!?! This is just plain stupid!!
FReepmail me if you want on or off my health and science ping list.
But then they wouldn't have the "disease du jour" to throw in our faces.
I knew some people who were obsessed with AIDS information. Unfortunately one of the next steps on the way to an airborne strain of the virus was a "fast burner" mutation that's an untreatable strain. Sadly to say, all we can hope for is that it burns itself out before that happens.
Mother nature has her way of taking care of things.
He frets about second hand smoke, but he can't say what's obvious to the blind.
Married couples (the kind that don't sleep around)?
1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Who's forcing all these people to have unprotected sex?
Exactly, why target your resources where they're most needed? You can make money with useless, PC efforts!
So the old saying "Speed Kills" is still true. On the other hand if the infested pass on quickly they will be less of a drain on the tax dollars of the normal people.
Whoever they are, they need to be found, rounded up, and tried and convicted of negligent manslaughter.
But not everyone agreed. Dr. Robert C. Gallo, a co-discoverer of the AIDS virus and director of the Institute of Human Virology at the University of Maryland, was very skeptical of yesterday's announcement.
I see this situation being utilized to demand millions of dollars for New York in order to eradicate a disease that has been in existence for at least 30 years. It is typical New York politics.
Can't be stressed enough. Anecdotal.
All these serious drug abusers and abusers of their body get sick.
Blame it on the super and now apparently almost magical viri and, eh voilá, responsibility is transformed to victimhood.
God said it, I believe it!
Now, what is the elephant in the room that this article is talking around with respect to the primary transmission vector of ths disease?
I am convinced that these people are enduring the wrath of God. You will reap what y ou sow.
"Mother nature has her way of taking care of things."
Amen to that! It's as if 'gays' are a herd of fornicating lemmings frenziedly running towards their doom as they jubilantly rant...."We're Liberated!"
If you want on/off the ping list see my profile page.
They mostly hope. "Hundreds of partners."
Birth Control. Then Gun Control. Now Homo Control?
Quick its time for the Prez to through billions of tax payer dollars towards the cure for AIDS...
NO matter how cheap prevention is it isnt an option
No amount of money is going to solve attitudes.
All of the money spent since the 80's on "AIDS awareness" and the like and we still have this type of behavior. Sometimes you have to cut your losses.
Not quickly enough.
How long has Magic Johnson been positive?
I remember, in the mid-80's and early '90's, being absolutely TERRIFIED of AIDS, and I had NO risk factors. NONE. But the idea was still scary as heck. These days, that fear isn't there.
Actually, it goes farther back than that. I saw a documentary recently which presented a pretty compelling case that the HIV virus jumped species from chimpanzees through a particular oral polio imunization effort in Africa in the 1950's. Apparently, one researcher in the then Belgian Congo in the early 1950's was using chimpanzee blood and organ material (liver, kidneys) to culture live polio virus. Once cultured, the virus was weakened and made into pill form. Other researchers at the time used green monkey or mackack monkey blood and organs for producing vaccine precisely because of the potential for a cross species infection. Although this researcher denies using chimps, workers who assisted in the production of the vaccine say hundreds of chimps were slaughtered for their blood and organs to use to grow polio cultures during this time. Millions of doses of this tainted polio vaccine were given in Africa, primarily in the Belgian Congo and surrounding countries and the first HIV/AIDS type symtoms ever noted correlate nearly perfectly to where this particular polio immunization was given.
Oh, and the country behind the tainted vaccine was France.
As usual, the "analysts" miss the point. Look at that last sentence. This story tells me of the importance of homosexual men keeping their joy sticks to themselves. Damn, it's so obvious.
aids is a disease. gay men and lesbian women are a political movement. This is the first disease with civil rights. That is why.

The UN / globalist agendas of population reduction and theft of American liberties continue to march merrily along.
When did the term condom replace the term rubber?
Is that God handing out a clue? Or evolution in action?
Not that it is important, but google shows it both ways.
My post is a reference to the name attributed to a disease epidemic among gays. The connection between gays and the disease led scientists to give the disease a very politically incorrect but accurate name. It was only after gays protested that the name was changed. Subsequently, blood donated by gays corrupted the nations blood supply. It was this tainted blood (clotting factor) that ultimately killed the young boy, Ryan White. Ryan White, a hemopheliac, was used as a posterboy by the gay community to brainwash Americans into believing that all Americans, not just gays were susceptible to the gay disease. It is unclear what the connection is between the gay lifestyle/AIDS and the monkey virus, except that gays will undoubtedly try to use it to blame others for the disease.
Not important in the difference at all. That's just how I remember hearing it first referenced.
Although I must admit that I really don't mind the name change as it better reflects the disease thoughout the world, however we should not forget how it spread to other countries (including ours).
Speaking epidemialogically, a quicker killing form of AIDS is really less dangerous to society. By killing its host quicker there is less chance of the infection spreading. Not a pleasant thought, but a scientifically accurate one.
there is a cure for AIDS, the virus dies if people stop behaving in a way that spreads it, oh sorry, like that's going to happen, there is no cure for AIDS
now a famous sex expert, Dr. Sue, one of my favourite sex experts, she looks like anyone's Grandmother but not annoying like Dr. Ruth said that anyone engaging in anal sex should double bag it, as in wear two condoms at once to ensure safer sex, whether hetero or homo, because of that delicate rectal tissue is very prone to tearing and thus tranmission, so if you double bag it, if one condom breaks hopefully the second condom works, personally a friend and mine laughingly suggest whole body condoms or maybe virtual sex is looking better and better or celibacy - this new chladmydia looks nasty too, time to buy stock in vibrator manufacturers, LOL
but you are always going to have assholes who are so stoned or drunk or on the death spiral that they don't care who they infect and some are angry so they want to take as many with them, happened to some creep in Canada who purposely infected women, in fact, this is a good reason for not having casual sex with anyone, this guy infected this one woman, she insisted he wear a condom, so he puts it on but whipped it off at the last moment and gave her AIDS, and this was after this guy was under an order to refrain from having unprotected sex - hmmmmm
I was shocked to learn just a few years ago that most cervical cancers are caused by a sexually transmitted disease, HPV, and you don't even hear about that much
