Oh sure — just in time to be banned from insurance because of a “pre-existing” condition.

I believe he did, he even bragged about it in a speech on Aids. My first question is why would he go do that? Why would anybody go get a test unless they suspect something in the past may have put them at risk?

Age of each person in accordance with US Constitutional Amendment XIV Section 2.

Sex of each person in accordance with US Constitutional Amendment XIV Section 2.

Everyone should do what they feel they should with the census. Answer one question, the number of persons, answer the 3 I will answer, or be a total libtard and answer the hundred details of the private lives of Americans that the gov’t is fishing for.

I have a plan. I have a written statement prepared, based on The Constitution, to hand to any census thug who steps on my farm. I will answer the 3 questions I feel are Constitutionally based. Nothing more. Everyone will decide for themselves if they will answer at all, answer only the number, or whatever else they feel like giving away to the government.

At this point, the gov’t is nothing more than an oppressive weight upon us. After cap and tax gets done with us all, we won’t have to answer silly questions on a census like “how many sinks do you have and how many have faucets?” We won’t have anything. It might be fun to answer the “is anyone in this residence hard of hearing? with “WHAT?”.

Instead, how about if he urges Americans to stop having anal sex.

That'll work.

His medical records were never released. For all we know he has aids.

I had no plans to get tested for HIV. I have not done any of the risky things which spread HIV. I am not in a high risk group. What’s the point???

I wish Obama had said why gay and bisexual men are at high risk. I wish he had said why certain minority groups are at higher risk.

The point being, rates of HIV and AIDS would drop dramatically if people behaved differently. We have been hearing about condoms and safe sex for over 20 years now. Why hasn’t that message penetrated certain people???? And what more can the government do if it hasn’t gotten through to certain people????

Obama takes HIV test to lessen stigma

“Age of each person [...Sex of each person...] in accordance with US Constitutional Amendment XIV Section 2.”

I don’t get it. Here is the relevant text:

“But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice-President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the Executive and Judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State.”

I understand this would have required at the time knowing the total population of males 21 and over. But hasn’t this been superceded, given that females and 18 year olds now have the right to vote? So I guess I can see the continued importance of age, but not anymore sex.

Also, this was obviously intended to punish the Southern states if they got it in their heads to deny the vote to blacks, upon whom, incidentally, the so-called Radical Republicans were relying. This part of the clause was never enforced to my knowledge, and was superceded by the 15th amendment, no?

Infection rates are largely confined to gay and bisexual men. Despite all the shock horrow warnings, HIV has not “leaked” into the heterosexual community in the west in any numbers. Proof once again that the so called sexual revolution wasnt all that revolutionary.

When I was growing up, the lesson drilled into our heads was that anyone can get AIDS.

Real life experience hasn't borne that out. The only people I knew who got AIDS were gay males. I don't know one single straight person, no matter how promiscuous, who got AIDS.

If you look at AIDS cases, upwards of 90% are men who have sex with other men, prostitutes and intravenous drug users. For the average straight person, AIDS is well down on the list of things to worry about.

None of my “fellow citizens” are running around fornicating with anything, and everything, they can catch.

I think Obama means gay and bisexual men, African Americans and Latinos.

“being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers,”

Sounds like the House and Senate.

While it may be true that we can point out their many sins, the problem is that these people don’t come from a different galaxy or another star system, but rather, they come from us, as a culture and society.

Very true. All men are capable of sin. Our representatives are supposed to be a 'cross-section' of their constituency.

And so they are.

What reminded me of this link to that clip of that Marine and the song, was the Team America video. I understand that this was one of the favorites of our guys over there. I understand they got a kick out of it.

Then what this Marine was doing, in his song, was taking just a portion of that Team America and doing part of his song with it. And, as you heard, the military guys got a kick out of it... LOL...

Anyway, there are two clips below, of that part of the Team America video...

Derka Allah Mohammed Jihad
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mdeIz6BQbU
[the short clip with cut portions...]

Derkha Derkha Muhammed Jihad
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wmw8UB4HCU
[the longer clip with an extended portion...]

The Team America Video is hilarious, though... [some of it is a bit gross, though, if I remember correctly, there was a vomiting scene in there that was a bit over the top... LOL...]

So, that’s the “genesis” of all that...

AND..., that Marine song and the CAIR complaint was about three years ago, so this isn’t a recent thing. I was just reminded of it from that picture in that post above, that I originally replied to.

Team America: World Police
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0007Y08IS/

An elite U.S. counter-terrorism squad loses a member while decimating half of Paris in the reckless pursuit of Middle Eastern maniacs; a Broadway actor with a traumatic childhood secret is naturally hired to replace him. Oh—and they’re all marionettes. South Park maestros Trey Parker and Matt Stone (along with co-writer Pam Brady) came up with this shameless satire of pea-brained Hollywood action flicks and even smaller-minded global politics, so don’t expect subtlety or even a hint of good taste. Team America is soon on the trail of North Korea’s evil Kim Jong Il, who treats us to a tender song about his loneliness before ensnaring Alec Baldwin and the rest of the oblivious Film Actors Guild (F.A.G. for short) in a plot to blow up every major city on the planet. Just as the mindless squad cheerfully demolishes everything in sight, so do director Parker and company. Throwing punches Left, Right, and in-between, the movie’s politics leave no turn un-stoned; there’s even time to bludgeon the musical Rent. It’s offensive, irresponsible comic anarchy seemingly made by sniggering little boys. Painfully funny sniggering little boys.—Steve Wiecking

President Barack Obama on Saturday urged his fellow Americans to get tested for HIV in an effort to reduce transmission of the virus that causes AIDS.

Why,... He can’t remember who he had gay sex with?

Basically it boils down to the simple conclusion that people are nowhere as promiscous as latter day liberal wisdom would have us believe. Just because they are rutting with anything - male, female, animal or mineral - that moves does not mean that we all are.

Even if that assumption were true, for straight people it's not all that much of an issue. Without getting into gory details, male homosexual sex is much more conducive to the transmission of HIV than what heterosexuals do. And don't forget about how dangerous sharing needles is. Even a very promiscuous heteresexual is at a lot less risk than his gay or needle-sharing counterpart.

Well, I wouldn’t trust a government clinic to practice safe testing procedure with needles. They will probably test an HIV+ guy, then rinse off the needle and test you.

Make sure you don't have a routine colonoscopy at a VA hospital, either -- they don't clean the equipment properly, you risk HIV-infection.
