Perhaps Magic Johnson could shed some light on this...
Why was this article in a major British newspaper exposing the AIDS scandal moved to Gen/Chat? This is a conservative issue, as evidenced by the fact that it has been favorably covered by National Review, Policy Review, American Spectator, Reason Magazine, World Magazine, Concerned Women for America, etc, etc. What gives???
See the “Conservative Press” section of my profile page for more.
This way they, the left liberal loons, get to feel good about themselves.
How you may say? Because they get to say to the poor, vote for us, because we fight for your rights to abort your children (eugenics) and we fight for your rights to kill yourself (keep healthcare costs down) and we fight for your welfare checks (we have to keep the poor poor, or we lose votes for socialist policies and lose support for atheism).
In the world of political correctness someone has to say the obvious -
i.e. the same questioning logic applies to the anthropogenic CO2 ruse - association does not mean unilateral cause.
But the Left is, by definition, the world of reactionary bigots.
There is no big mystery here. Americans were dying of AIDS until big pharma dived into the problem. There have been about a dozen effective medications developed for HIV in the last 20 years. Most people diagnosed with HIV can have their viral loads lowered to near zero with a coctail of drugs and remain that way for decades.
I worked at a tertiary medical center towards the end of the AIDS epidemic. We had dozens of very sick people hospitalized waiting to die. As the meds came on line, people on deaths door started leaving the hospital through the front door rather than the morgue. Eventually, the AIDS wards were closed and the hospital went to an HIV out patient clinic. They don’t even have that anymore, HIV is treated by private doctors outside the hospital.
Most HIV positive people walk around now with undetectable viral loads. There is talk within the infectious disease profession of developing a definition of a cure so that they can start weaning a fraction of their patients completely off meds.
In Africa, it is a completely different story. The meds are too expensive and the disease is too widespread. There are various theories about why the disease affects different demographics than in the west. The one that makes the most sense to me is that there is widespread syphylis like spirochete infections that make it much easier to transmit HIV from female to male. There is a similar association with homosexual HIV transmission and syphylis in the U.S.
It's like the global warming scam - each person comes up with more and more dire warnings - horrible things that will happen - UNLESS WE GET MORE CASH ... NOW.
Is this about HIV1 or HIV2?
So who can complain about mere money when GOOD WORKS are being accomplished. Just think about how many additional LIVES COULD BE SAVED if even more funds were available.
I had to use a few large letters as there is some static in background, nothing important, just noise that I’ll ignore.
AIDS, GW- are they the different religions or are they the same religion? There seems to be a lot of overlap between the two sets of adherents.
