Kris Alingod - AHN News Writer Washington, D.C. (AHN) - Speaking during his weekly radio address on Saturday, President George W. Bush thanked lawmakers for passing a landmark AIDs bill and reiterated his administration's broader goal of fighting extremism around the world by combating hunger and disease.
The Senate passed by a vote of 80-16 a $48 billion measure called President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) last week to fight AIDS worldwide. The House passed its version of the bill in April.
Bush said the legislation is "the largest international health initiative dedicated to fighting a single disease in history" and "a testament to the extraordinary compassion and generosity of the American people."...

If you would like to be added to the RETHINKING AIDS PING LIST drop me a FReepmail.
AIDS is the biggest public health scam in medical history. Like global warming, AIDS is being used to push a powerful leftist political agenda. For over two decades the Public Health Establishment has used your tax dollars and the full power of the federal government to wage a massive propaganda (and intimidation) campaign designed to (A) dupe the American public into believing that HIV is the cause of AIDS (B) scare the public into thinking "we are all at risk" (C) coverup the extreme toxicity of AIDS chemotherapy drugs (which are not just used on "fast-track" gays and junkies, but also given to pregnant mothers, infants, and children) (D) use this fear to push a leftist social agenda that includes socialized medicine, and the promotion of homosexuality and explicit sex "education" to tender-aged school children (E) use their "public health mandate" to bypass the authority of parents and local school boards who object to their social engineering schemes (F) create a massive federal bureaucracy encouraging the use of addictive drugs, to include prescription heroine (G) use threats and intimidation to silence dissenting scientists and to keep the press from covering the debate (H) and finally, to use AIDS as a model to push similar social agendas with respect to future epidemics.
Every single point above can be documented on my profile page.
Ugh, Bush... why? We elected you for your conservatism, not big government spend-on-everything stance.
hey where’s the diabetes $$$
Pissing money down a rathole! Alzheimers will overtake AIDS in about 10 years when the baby boomers bong resin settles and thats 10,000 times a more f’d up disease!
That’s what we got. I guess that’s what he meant by “compassionate conservatism.” If I ever hear a candidate making statements like that again, they certainly NOT BE GETTING MY VOTE.
It was diverted to fight the nonexistent AIDS “epidemic.”
Seriously. It’s sad that “compassionate conservative” has to mean that one spends on everything to seem compassionate... actually it kinda sounds like a liberal... hmmm.
a $48 billion measure
Aids funding is socialism in disguise. What a farce.
==Alzheimers will overtake AIDS in about 10 years when the baby boomers bong resin settles and thats 10,000 times a more fd up disease!
Actually, if you look at the table above, Alxheimers kills about twice as many people than AIDS.
You are a stupid punk.
Our congress critters are nuts. Wonder how much money is going in their pockets and pockets of family and friends.
Get rid of them. They are plain irresponsible.
Liberals consistently turn EVERYTHING precisely upside down. Heart disease - #1 killer way down the funding list.
“fighting extremism around the world by combating hunger and disease.” - Ummm - what?
Big breakthrough in Alzheimer treatment today. Look around for the details.
Goodbye Shrub and good riddance! Like your old man you never really had the meddle to follow in Ronald Magnum’s footsteps. Now, crawl back to Crawford!
You’d best be careful Mean, the Bushbots will be here soon to defend this as a cunning plan on the part of George W Blackadder, ah, I mean Bush...
This pisses me off big time. I’m really disgusted at Bush for doing this.
I haven't read the legislation; I find THOMAS to be a pain in the neck. But what type of "fight" are we buying with 48 billion dollars, (which just happens to be one-tenth of the newly-released deficit figures)?
Is it to provide education to Africans who don't know how AIDS is contracted? Is it to provide medicine for those who've already contracted AIDS? Or, as the article states, is the money being used to "advance freedom" in order to "defeat the forces of violent extremism by offering a more hopeful vision of freedom"?
"And as this vision takes hold in more nations around the world, America will be safer here at home."
Sounds like bribe money to me.
"You keep your people in check and you'll keep receiving checks."
That’s enough treasure on AIDs. Way out of proportion compared to other major illnesses, disgusting AIDs political pandering.
Monkey Bush trying to get Laura’s liberal friends to like them again.
Bush is a primate. Just an absolute imbecile or something.
You’re saying AIDS and HIV aren’t linked? What are they?
I never could figure why the democrats have always gone berserk at the sound of President Bush’s name.
From the beginning of his first term, starting with the Kennedy “No Child Left Behind” program, he has carried their water for them.
With President Bush in office we got saddled with more liberal programs and out of control spending than if there had been a democrat in office.
With a democrat president at least some of the Republicans in Congress would have fought against the excesses of the last eight years, but they just rolled over for Bush because he was a member of their own party.
I almost choke when I hear media hacks and lefties rail against Bush for being too conservative!!
What a joke!
He never met a multi billion dollar hand out that he didn’t embrace.
What a disappointment.
According to a growing number of scientists and medical doctors (many of them with very impressive credentials), HIV is a harmless passenger virus, whereas AIDS is really a number of completely unrelated diseases that have been artificially lumped under the current AIDS definition. They claim that the vast majority of cases in the US and Europe are simply drug users who have blown out their immune systems because of long-term, end-point drug abuse. In Africa, they claim that they are dying of the traditional diseases associated with poverty, malnutrition and poor sanitation. Finally, they claim that the very drugs (read: highly toxic chemotherapy drugs) they use to treat AIDS patients are themselves killing people off by the tens of thousands...which, if true, is very unfortunate for the poor Africans Bush's AIDS bill is designed to help.
For more, you might want to to a peek at my profile page. There you will find a number videos and articles that will help you understand where these scientists are coming from.
All the best—GGG
PS If you're interested, I would be glad to add you to my (infrequent) Rethinking AIDS ping list. It's time to reopen the question as to what really causes AIDS!
All very true. But with a demorat house and senate, Obama will be FAR, FAR WORSE.
Is what you are saying in all respect provable or a pet theory? I suppose I can see what you are saying but then what about HIV being deadly. It makes sense that when a disease wears down your immune system you will die from simple things. I just don’t understand how they can get that so wrong.
Hey, Glenn-—lighten up, will ya?
McCain is considerably more fiscally conservative than Bush. Wait and see.
Its all about the legacy. The legacy drives the last 6-8 months of a President’s term—its makes them do very dumb things.
How right you are.
McCain will be just as bad and Obama will be worse than that.
Conservatism is entering a dark period.
Nice job, W. Way to spend our money.
That’s f***ed up. The gay lobby is powerful.
About the same time your generation is forced to use solar powered mopeds for family vacations to the local park. Of course you'll all be required to wear glo-painted protective suits, and over sized shock absorber helmets with flashing lights on them...For your own good.
And with the influx of foreigners into the U.S. all the diseases that have been eradicated will be back, like Bubonic Plague, Small Pox, flesh eating bush rash, and you'll be eating ground up imported Chinese mulch, for when you get the mulchese!
What a scam.
“The gay lobby is powerful.”
track the addition of the homosexuals and liberal women in the GOP and you will know how the GOP fell these last 8 years..The GOP much like many churches have been infiltrated
and yet many on FR act like the leadership is conservative..we need another party to support, the GOP is corrupt in so many ways
so, how does someone keep track of where this money goes? do we get a receipt at least? geez
Wow! Coming from someone like you makes that statement just that much more meaningless.
Don't pretend you know me. You don't.
I know you. Someone living in the land of delusions of self-centered importance! Aka, just another judgemental punk!
My, my, my. I do bring out the insecurities in people.
It's a gift.
