    you will never end the disease aids as long as society condones the very vectors that causes and spread the disease...the advocates for cure are hypocrites...for they condone and promote these vectors!

    I guess it's not fair to just state what I did w/o at least some explanation, Rascal Rabble. Here...google "Viral Cancer Research Project" and find-out where Aids really came from. (not gay men as many claim)

    Millions of religious zealots go around claiming that their twisted version of God causes EQs and AIDS as punishment for the wicked. Where in the heck they got this idea is beyond me. God simply isn't that kind of individual, nor is his son. God hasn't killed any of todays peoples. And in the past he was VERY selective about who he killed.
    EQs and AIDS kill anyone they come in full contact with. God doesn't.
    Another reason why we need to abolish ALL organized religions...to stop them from teaching this craep to our kids.

    I'll remind people that when they start the craep that God hates gay people and gay people are sinning.

    Yes, not long after 9/11 the US gov. embarked on the largest prison building project in world histrory, even though our nationwide crime-rate was relatively flat at that time. We asked Congress why, and were told "for the thousands of terrorists" Bush planned on rounding up.
    By now it should be painfully obvious to everyone that DHS's 160 extra prisons weren't built to house thousands of terrorists.
    This one is for you! America. Clean-up your fraudulent disabilty and military enti tlement fraud before you too feel the sting. Every single penny you have stolen from US *will* be repaid, even with the sweat of your brow as a slave working at a corporate concentration camp.
    You too! those who knowingly spread HIV. Acourse (what have you gasl done w/raven?) these will be quarantined together.
    Really. The CIA isn't going to be layed off and on unemployment once the last nation is occupied. Already they are headquartered in Denver, for US! baby! And it's about time we cleaned ourselves up rather than the world.

    The lst KNOWN case in the US was l979 and the lst KNOWN case in Africa was in l982. None of which has anything to do with the freakin prison system!
