Just what is it about Subarus that is so attractive to lesbians?

It can't be the source, they're made here in good ole Lafayette Indiana. But they're all 4wd, maybe lesbians are worried about getting stuck in the ditch?

“Start treating this like cigarette smoking.”

We’re doing quite the opposite. Most people with HIV/AIDs are poor or near poor. ObamaCare opens up Medicaid (for the first time) to non-disabled adults without children so long as their income is below 133% of poverty. This will automatically qualify a sizable number with HIV/AIDS for free medical care.

The new rules banning insurance companies from denying coverage to those with pre-existing conditions or charging higher premiums based on health status also will benefit those with HIV/AIDS who today are either denied coverage outright or must pay much higher premiums to get it.

Since the medical costs of HIV/AIDS exceed $10,000 a year, the net effect of all these changes is to reduce the “price” of having HIV/AIDS. What we know from Econ 101 is that when you lower the price of something, people demand more of it. It’s a safe bet that HIV/AIDS prevalence will rise as a consequence of ObamaCare, but don’t expect Dems to advertise this sad reality.

3.) Just what is it about Subarus that is so attractive to lesbians?

The Subaru thing is getting old. I have two Foresters. One out of Seven people own them where I live. This is a very conservative area. It is also ludicrously hilly.

Funny how that never happened...

If the same percentage of heterosexuals routinely had sex with hundreds of anonymous partners then one in five heterosexuals would have HIV too.

Gay, Queer, Lesbian, etc.

That is politically incorrect terminology. You should use the non-judgmental terms She (womyn), He (men), It (eunuchs), and Trans-gendered (either or both), or the abbreviation S.H.I.T.

1) What is the average lifespan of a Gay, Queer, Lesbian, etc. ?

There are studies. They just aren't reported. Lifespan is about 50 years old.

What other diseases do Gays, Queers, Lesbians, etc. contract?

Gay bowel syndrome, anal cancer, shigellosis, proctitus, MRSA, parasites, just to name a few.

On a similar note....

Rush was explaining today about how Obamacare will not deny anyone coverage. No sir.

But.... when it comes to treatment; thats a different matter.

Avastin for instance. Powerful drug used in fighting breast cancer. Wholesale cost is $7,700 per month. But it works.

But the FDA and Obamacare can’t afford that. So guess what? It’s gone.

How much to treat AIDS per month? I tried googling it, but most sites seem pro-homosexual and I’m not sure that their numbers are correct. Many have figures for Africa only.

When AIDS first surfaced in the early 80s, I wrote a letter to the editor saying that basic Public Health measures should be instituted and people with AIDS should be quarantined. Man, did I get a load of responses to that. Other docs upset, county medical society, other counter letters to the editor. I wonder if that were done in the early 80s where we would be with HIV/AIDS today?

Wow. You weren’t kidding.

It’s as if Google doesn’t want us to know the cost of AIDS.

Either Google or the wankers in Washington DC. Either way - it’s none of our business, right? If you have to ask - you can’t afford it.

Bottom line is - women with breast cancer? Too bad. Can’t afford to help ya.

Queers with AIDS? Not their fault, so yeah - Unlimited resources for them.

For they exchanged the truth of God for a LIE, and worshiped and served THE CREATURE rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

FOR THIS REASON GOD GAVE THEM OVER TO DEGRADING PASSIONS; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is UNNATURAL (Literally "against nature"),

and IN THE SAME WAY ALSO THE MEN ABANDONED THE NATURAL FUNCTION OF THE WOMAN AND BURNED IN THEIR DESIRE TOWARD ONE ANOTHER, MEN WIT MEN COMMITTING INDECENT ACTS AND RECEIVING I N T H E I R O W N P E R S O N S THE DUE PENALTY OF THEIR ERROR. (Romans 1:25-27, Emphasis added)

God keeps His word; Homosexuality is sin and the sign from God that He has given that individual over to "degrading passions" because they have "exchanged the truth of God for a LIE, and worshiped and served THE CREATURE rather than the Creator".

According to Romans 1:27; Aids is the "due penalty" of their sinfulness.

While homoseuxals may go on to lose their lives as a direct result of their sinful lifestyle, God still holds out the hope of the salvation of their eternal souls if they will believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of their sins and after their salvation, repent of their wicked lifestyle.

Oral sex can be just as dangerous,especially when none of them are especially concerned about any possible STD’s or genital warts,which they can check for.People can develop throat cancer through oral sex,especially when they were with 5 or more partners. People can get STD’s in their mouth and throat!

Homosexual acts and the lifestyle are by their very nature an out of control way of life.

That is why so many homosexuals get AIDS and a myriad of other horrible illnesses. “Gay monogamy” is rare to nil. And rare left town.

Then put some names and faces to those needless early deaths. Goggle Turtle Creek Corale and go to their "memorials" link. Make note of the ages of those who "passed away quietly at home" and you will see for yourselves the truth about homosexuality, from their own accounts.

Four percent. And that estimate may be high. The prior article I linked says the latest CDC estimate was around 2%.

I just told my wife that's amazing. If you watch any TV, you would think the US population is 25% homosexual, 50% Black, 25% Hispanic and about 25% White. . . Don't watch much TV here. . .

Well, in NYC, LA, and SF, (where the lib writers live) the gay percentage is probably much higher than the national average.

On TV, though, they do have a tendency to have any roles that portray authority figures (judges, chief doctors, etc), particularly bit parts, being cast by blacks, women, or preferably black women.

So, if 1 in 5 gay recruits in the new military had HIV, and, given the bleeding that occurs in combat, we should be able to cripple the military in very short order. And we can use most or all of the VA’s funding to treat HIV and AIDS. Eliminate certain recruiting standards, relax certain boot camp training procedures, and we’ve found a perfect way to give gay men free treatment for life.

I believe that the military is checking for HIV status as part of a routine medical screening before induction and rejecting the infected, but that might be deemed "discrimination" in a future gay friendly military.

I don't think that bleeding from wounds will cause a lot of HIV infections; but the perception of risk would certainly inhibit contact with men of uncertain HIV status which might inhibit combat effectiveness.

Another concern is with emergency blood transfusions which are done in combat situation where FDA approved blood products are not available or whole blood is preferred. See Emergancy Blood Transfusions

Why not, if infected blood splatters or spills on other people with open wounds, cuts, abrasions etc. That's why EMT and other health workers are so dang careful! They don't want to get AIDS or other blood borne illnesses.
