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."
