Yes...and if positive I’ll bet you $5 more this will put time and money limits on ones degree of “worth” in how much care they get...if any.

The TSAification of AIDS. Everyone is a potential terrorist carrier, so screen everyone.

But this is much older than the TSA. This is part of a conscious effort, going on since the late 1980s, to position AIDS as a disease which can infect anyone, not just those in high-risk groups. Sam Kinison had a joke about "heterosexual AIDS" in his act back then. But the left does not want to call out those who engage in risky behavior.

It is illogical, but logic doesn't matter to the left. For years we associated cigarette smoking as a high-risk activity for developing lung cancer. The message went out to stop the risky activity. Anyone remember the Yul Brynner PSA from the grave? We didn't ask everyone to get a chest MRI just so we would not offend the smokers.

It creates unnecessary fear, but fear has always been a political tool.

If this call for testing qualified those who should get tested by saying if you have engaged in the following risky behaviors, you should get tested, there would be howls from the left.

Here is what I want to see. If Obama really thinks everyone should get tested, I want to seem him go to a convent and explain why every nun there needs to be tested.

No thank you, I’m no risk. We are faithful spouses 62 & 70.

Keep the crap out of the blood supply and we will continue to be no risk.

Maybe they should test every one coming out of prison, and inform that person’s partner so they can avoid getting HIV.

From what I understand, regular blood bank supplies were not tested for aids until 1983 or 1984. I needed transfusions for major surgery back then and found out later that the blood was not tested for aids. I have since had several tests which showed negative. So I lucked out. Hope everyone else is that fortunate.

I won’t give this piece of crap in the Oral Office any credence, but when you get a physical, I believe they DO already test your blood for HIV as part of the battery of tests. But I’m not going to go out and have this done because of his pathetic proclamations.

Dang it, he's a creepy weirdo. "Stigma"? "Discrimination"? People without any discrimination when making choices in life (what to eat, drink, where to go, whether to have sex/not to have sex, get married or not and to whom, whether to take drugs/not take drugs etc) live short, miserable filthy lives.

Acting as though everyone is equally "at risk" for catching AIDS is not only untrue, it is dangerous - the specific acts that are much, much more likely to spread AIDS should be described and listed so young people see exactly what is dangerous and what isn't.

But of course the people who brought us "We're all going to get AIDS" don't want to admit that it is primarily a homosexual disease.

With this advice, Obama is admitting to nervousness about his own HIV/Aids status.

Apparently, there is someplace with a record of his having been tested. He is innoculating himself against the day that that comes out.

Good point. I have thought for some time he likely has AIDS.
