I wonder if this is because of our support of Israel?[:D] [url]http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2002/08/26/eveningnews/main519820.shtml[/url] This was on CBS Evening News, so I looked it up on their website. Before someone jumps for watching, it was on in the background, I wasn't watching, but my ears perked up when I heard this part:
AIDS economist Chris Desmond blames rich countries like the United States for failing to share their wealth. "Providing economic goods and services to the developed world, supporting their wealth and continuing to support their lifestyle is causing our people to become ill and die," he says.

Oh, how UN and socialistic of him, not 'sharing their wealth', my ass. Just exactly how and since when did our lifestyle depend on them and even if it did, how does that make them die? People like Desmond really defy logic.

You mean we need to send MORE $$$$$? Makes sense to me [BD]

I'd say that their own utter stupidity on all levels has caused them to become ill and die. So now it's our responsibility to give our hard-earned wealth to people who are too stupid to make their own money? And I suppose that we are somehow "oppressing" them too? Does the UN have a purpose other then imposing world socialism by stealing as much money as possible from the productive countries and giving it to the undeveloped countries?

Eh. It won't matter in a couple of years anyway, right? I'm sure it was the Good ol' US of A that told them that doing a virgin was the way to get cured. Ya wonder why rape is going over there so much with younger and younger females?

I'm amazed that there is such a thing as an "AIDS economist." I wonder who pays his salary.
Providing economic goods and services to the developed world, supporting their wealth and continuing to support their lifestyle is causing our people to become ill and die," he says.

Ok I usually don't post but here I go off on a rant. First off, We already send Africa money to help them educate their population about aids and how it is spread. Should we send them more money? Hell no. It isn't working now, its not gona work with 10 times the amount. Secondly, So now I am supposed to work hard not only to support a crack whore mom on welfare with 10 kids that can't keep her legs together, but because a bunch of people in a third world nation can't seem to grasp the idea of aids and how it is spread. Umm tell them to go screw themselves and not eachother. it might help with their epidemic down their. Oh and just so you know Bill Cosby once said the although he has no proof, he thinks aids was started by the US governmet to help control the black population. Ok, slavery reparation. Once again, go screw yourself. I am a catholic. you don't see me wanting to sue Rome because they fed catholics to lions in gladiator sports while people watched. Another thing. Africns sold other tribes to the white man. So they should include themselves in that lawsuit since they are going after people who helped with the slave trade. Many people I work with are black and none of the ones I have asked are supporters of this. Of course they say if they got a check they would be happy, but who wouldn't. Anyways to wrap up, We should not be responsible for other nations health crisis. You cannot hold governments responsible for actions that your own people partook in. Ryan

20% of sub-sahara africans have AIDS. It's mind-boggling. You'd think they'd use condoms, or practice monogamy to reduce their risks, but they dont. They do things that INCREASE the risks. African men like a practice called 'dry sex' that causes abrasions and bleeding that pretty much guarantees HIV transmission. Then they think having sex with a virgin will cure them, so they go find some poor girl to infect (extremely high rape rates in South Africa. It isn't really prosecuted at all. Rape of infants isn't unusual there). Africa's got a lot of problems, mostly self-inflicted. I dont see how sending money to corrupt African governments will help their troubles.

"She says Africa's turn has come. "We are the only group that have not received reparations. The Jewish people have received reparations. The native Americans have received reparations. The Korean comfort women and so-on and so forth," she said." Your time is gonna come.... Lyin', cheatin', hurtin, that's all you seem to do. Messin' around with every guy in town, Drive me insane, trouble is gonna come to you, One of these days and it won't be long,

AIDS is eminently preventable. Unfortunately African cultural norms regarding sex have led to it's widespread dissemination at a rate outpacing other societies. We may yet find a cure and save Africa. We've already done so with the sickle cell disease, which the african american community was so vulnerable to.
