Reuters ^ | 8/3/11 | Julie Steenhuysen

Posted on 08/03/2011 3:48:24 PM PDT by Nachum

Chicago - The number of Americans newly infected with HIV remained stable between 2006 and 2009, but infections rose nearly 50 percent among young black gay and bisexual men, U.S. experts said on Wednesday. New data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveal progress since the peak of the HIV epidemic in the 1980s. But the sharp increases in infection rates among young black men who have sex with men show there is much more work to do, they said.(Snip) While blacks represent 14 percent of the U.S. population, they accounted for 44 percent of new HIV

“much more work to do” Julie?

Or maybe much less sex to have?

What would be more effective?

Oh Yes, allow all of the perverted gays into the military. Chicao is liberal, so goes the black gay community. No government money for health care- they could have said NO

Looks like being ‘on the down low’ is catching up with them.

I laughed out loud at that “much more work to do.”

But I’m cynical.

And a racist.

Expect military medical costs due to homos to skyrocket. It was bad enough when women were admitted to most specialties, then the services were not allowed to preclude enlistment of married men nor restrict marriage to E-5 and above.

“But the sharp increases in infection rates among young black men who have sex with men show there is much more work to do, they said.(Snip)”

“Much more work” for whom??

For the families of, and the individuals described in the report as “young black men” it would seem.

Oh wait, if it’s factual is it “racist”????

"men-who-have-sex-with-men." Hm. Guess it's not permitted to call them by their rightful names anymore. We have to use tortured euphemisms. Boy is this country in trouble.

When we do not live up to what God created us to be He sends a a storm to capture our attention. If we ignore that storm and continue in our sinful way we pay the price. Prwvention may be the only cure for HIV.

Listen to any one of the Chicago “poverty pimps”; Jeremiah Wright, Farakhan, etc, and they claim that the White CIA created AIDS (and heroine) to kill off the black population.

As of 2007, almost half of all HIV cases in the US were for black Americans.

STDs are rampant in prison and are brought home with the parolee, who is almost certain to continue a lifestyle of unprotected sex with multiple partners who do not know his history.

Ummm, a Person With HIV Qualifies for Social Security Disability.

Yep, get that little virus and it's $1,200 a month, plus food stamps plus free health care FOREVER.

Guy with HIV at 25 can collect until he dies in his 80's or 90's. It's YOU oh8eleven who is paying for his free ride - and it's YOU on the expressway to extinction. People with HIV today can expect to live a normal lifespan - while collecting disability - on your dime...

Some gays are bug chasers - they're trying to get the virus. Free ride - free heath care - and they can work... under the table - as a waiter - whatever. The good life.

You, oh8eleven will work til you drop. Your public servants will keep upping the age to retire until no worker ever gets there. Sadly, people with real disabilities will die when the money runs out... but the scammers? They'll move on to the next scam.

My father died 7 years after he was diagnosed with AIDS. He caught it from his lover who was cheating on him with a female who caught it from her bisexual boyfriend.

Yes, and the sad part is that pop culture is like the killing blow for black masculinity, or even general masculinity as a whole. When the TV sitcom dad is an idiot,a metro, or gay and the typical TV woman is some super-attractive woman, what does that say? What’s even more troublesome is the fact I heard a while ago is the risk that some black women may have due to black men not being just gay, but also potentially bisxeual, which means that the women they have relations with may also be at risk for whatever they pick up from the male-male behaviors.

Wrong. In late 2007 I was laid off at 60 y/o, was on UE for 99 weeks ... then received retirement annuity and early SS.
I also took all my retirement money out of the market (per Glenn Beck) and never lost a penny when the market crashed.

I've noticed ... for me it's almost like water off a duck's back.
My retirement money is in a fixed rate fund and while not very lucrative (+4.7% last year), I never lose money and I can sleep at night on days like this.
I have friends my age and they're still working trying to recoup their 401(k) losses. No telling what damage the last 7-10 days have done to their accounts.
Hell, they may be working until they're 70.
I consider myself very lucky - as I said - if I hadn't listened to Beck, I'd be hurtin' too.
