Stone slams US for ignoring AIDS
London (IANS) ^ | 1/30/06 | Staff

Posted on 01/30/2006 10:32:56 AM PST by Millee

Actress Sharon Stone has slammed the US saying that it is not doing enough to help those suffering from AIDS. Stone is disgusted by the lack of support for even American victims of the disease and condemns the US for dismissing the disease as an African problem only, contactmusic.com reported. She says: “There is this feeling that AIDS has gone away and it hasn’t. In downtown Los Angeles there are two whole streets of homeless people with AIDS who have no access to drugs. A child dies of AIDS every minute, and they’re not all in Africa.”

Sharon - if you don't want to get AIDS, just keep your legs crossed.

Hey,Sharon....half of your net worth and half of your yearly income donated to AIDS charities would help many,many,many victims.

When can they expect your checks?

What has Sharon Stone done for AIDS patients lately?

I mean, really... Is she thinking of contracting the disease in order to bring new awareness of the disease here at home?

Perhaps she'll donate her personal fortune to the cause...

Or maybe she'll grand stand and make speeches.

Bush has done more to help the fight against AIDS than Clinton ever did. I don't remember Hollywood complaining much back then.

How about the fact that all the victims ignore abstinence as a 100% guarantee that this plaugue goes away in one generation?

It is spread purely by behavior. Nothing else. And all the money and policy positions in the world can't stop it if people have no personal responsibility.

Then again, considering the populations most affected by this, perhaps accountability for one's actions is WAY too much to expect. So blame government, and blame Bush.

The US is disgusted with Sharon Stone for being anti-American and pro-terrorist.

Wonder if she'll use her notoriety to speak against open borders, terrorism, socialism?

Oh, I think there's plenty being done, dear. Plenty. How about you go to work on those who give and receive it? It seems that plenty of them are ignoring it, too.

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

Don'tcha know, she has done her part just by raising awareness... She doesn't actually have to give them any, you know, money.

Besides, they would much rather raid the Federal Treasury. That's where the big bucks are!

This is purely political spin.
It's widely known (even Bobo has admitted as such) that her boy, Clinton, only paid lip-service to the African AIDS problem, so what she's doing is spinning the issue.
Bet your bottom-dollar that had Bush been percieved as less generous on African AIDS, she would not have said a peep about the AIDS problem here.
Another imbecile Lefty moving the goalposts.

First off, she's not distinguishing GOVERNMENT aid from other aid. If a private hospital, often a Catholic or other religiously-affiliated one, offers therapeutic or hospice care to AIDS victims, that isn't reflected in a state or federal government spending allocation.

Second, although AIDS is an important concern, total spending on its treatments FAR outstrips spending on most other diseases on a per-patient basis, per-death basis and most other measures.

What a nitwit.

What an idjit! I believe the bulk of research money nowadays is being used to find vaccines, etc. for this disease. I'd like to know what homosexual activist groups are doing to help their own who are afflicted with AIDS. After all, the activity they promote is the direct cause of the vast majority of AIDS cases in this country.

I wonder if she is as disgusted by what causes most AIDS cases? Apparently not.

Actions have consequences. 'Nuff said.

I guess she wants everyone to be able to engage in any kind of sex they want and not have to accept responsibility for the consequences. I can't help but notice that some of the worst scourges of the Human Race seem to be associated with some of the Leftist's pet agendas...

When I hear about someone getting infected with AIDS I always equate it to a skydiver who's chute didn't open. I just can't work up much sympathy for either when something finally goes wrong.

I keep seeing this poster on DC Metro buses with a bunch of people standing together and the slogan "We all have AIDS...if one of us does."

That's only true if everyone in the picture is a turd burglar or a junkie.
