Condoms Couldn't Possibly Prevent AIDS or Pregnancies

From CNN November 21st:
LONDON, England (AP) -- The global HIV epidemic continues to expand, with more than 40 million people now estimated to have the AIDS virus, but in some countries prevention efforts are finally starting to pay off, the United Nations says.

For the first time there is solid evidence that increased efforts to combat the disease over the last five years have led to fewer new infections in some places, said UNAIDS chief Peter Piot.
Previously improvements had been seen in places such as Senegal, Uganda and Thailand, but those were rare exceptions.
"Now we have Kenya, several of the Caribbean countries and Zimbabwe with a decline," Piot said, adding that Zimbabwe is the first place in Southern Africa, the hardest-hit area, to show improvement.
These are all countries that have invested heavily in safe-sex campaigns and other prevention programs, with the result that prevalence of HIV among the young has declined.
"People are starting later with their first sexual intercourse, they are having fewer partners, there's more condom use," Piot said.

So let me get this straight, education, prevention programs and more condoms are attributed to decreasing the spread of AIDS in all these countries but even with all this information and the tools available people still have sex, even if it means their life. Yet there are people in this country who believe that they don't need things like condoms and sex education because the schools should just teach their kids to not have sex and that will solve everything. If the threat of AIDS and death hasn't deterred people then the possibility of having a kid that your parents will raise for you will not prevent our teenagers from having sex. Guess what? Teenagers have sex; that is what they are biologically designed to do and no one is going to be able to stop it. Do you think a teenager who can't be relied on to clean his room, cut the grass, not take guns and drugs to school can be trusted to not have sex with your daughter? Think again. Remember how horny and stupid you was when you were a teenager?

Condoms are not evil and Jesus won't take away your birthday if you provide kids with condoms in order to avoid AIDS and teenage pregnancies. You can teach abstinence all you want as long as you keep condoms available to the large number who will not abstain. It is no coincidence that the Bible Belt, the very people who are against condoms in schools, has the highest rate of teenage pregnancies, children born out of wedlock and poverty, within the United States.

Oh, and in case you forgot how to avoid AIDS, I will again share my AIDS prevention tips with you one more time:

How not to get AIDS:

Don't have sex, stay home and jerk off to skinamax half porn, or get a blow up doll.

Don't have sex with someone who has AIDS, even with a condom.

Don't have sex with someone who is bleeding out of their ass.

If you must have sex with someone, use a condom.

Don't have sex with people you don't know or just met in a mens room, George Michael included.

If you know of someone who has had sex with an AIDS victim, do not have sex with that person.

If you shun condoms because you "dont like the way the feel", ask yourself how a big dose of AIDS would feel.

If you want to have a good (long) sex life, find a committed partner that you can trust that has had an AIDS test.

Don't tag team some other guy's ass with a bunch of leather dudes you just met at a bar.

Don't have sex with someone who has ever been tag teamed.

Don't believe people when they tell you they don't have AIDS.

Don't frequent glory holes, either side.

Don't blow heroin addicts or crack heads in alleys.

Don't share needles with heroin addicts, more specifically, heroin addicts with AIDS.

Don't have sex with prostitutes, or a junkie prostitute with a bad itch.

If you are African, having sex with a virgin does not cure AIDS, it spreads it.

Dont' become "blood brothers" with someone who has AIDS

Don't be born in Africa.

Don't let herpes victims with open sores on their mouth give you a blow job, as these people tend to not be as careful and selective as someone such as me and may also have AIDS, though I will not blow you.

Don't let anyone cum on any open sores, cuts or orifices.

Do not become, or have sex with a porn star, more specifically a gay porn star that has violated my other rules.

If you do any of the above, get an AIDS test every week.

If you are a gay basher, don't make your victims bleed as the flailing blood may stain your Ted Nugent shirt, infect you and later, your fat girlfriend who lives with you in your double-wide.

If you are an NBA player, don't nail every white woman between L.A. and Boston that is trying to get knocked up by someone rich and famous.

If you are a Catholic priest, condoms are evil, fuck little boys who couldn't possibly have AIDS yet.

If you are an altar boy, don't hang out with priests alone.

If you are Pat Robertson or Jerry Falwell, don't mock God, he will punish you with AIDS.

If you're Bill Frist, a medical doctor and US Senator, don't let anyone sweat or spit on you.

If you are Tom Delay, rules obviously don't apply to you, feel free to do all the above.

P.S. These tips may also be effective in not getting knocked up when you are 14 years old.

Dover, PA Bracing for Hurricanes, Death of First Born

From CNN:
(Reuters) -- Conservative Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson told citizens of a Pennsylvania town that they had rejected God by voting their school board out of office for supporting "intelligent design" and warned them Thursday not to be surprised if disaster struck.

Yes, I know, this is old news now but Pat Robertson, the guy who called for the assassination of Venezuelan President Chavez, blamed 9/11 on the ACLU and abortions, told Orlando, FL to brace for earth quakes and hurricanes if they let people put up rainbow flags, has warned the city of Dover, PA that they will suffer God's wrath because they voted out 8 Republican school board officials who tried to introduce Christianity as science in their public school system.

Parents and the ACLU, defenders of religious liberty and the American way, sued the school board for forcing students to hear a statement saying evolution is just a theory and that intelligent design was another theory that they pulled out of their ass in order to indoctrinate the students with misinformation and replace science with Christianity, thus ignoring the 1st Amendment.

So does this mean that the school board thinks students should hear the same statements before they discuss Einstein and his "Theory" of Relativity, or that the Earth has a liquid core? After all, no one has been able to prove these "theories" 1st hand.

In related news, the Kansas school board voted 6-4 to replace science with creationism. This will probably open the door for critics of astronomy and chemistry to replace these "sciences" with astrology and alchemy respectively.

Message: PA=Smart, KS= Stupid

Why Wal-Mart Sucks

Oct 25th:
NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Wal-Mart CEO Lee Scott said he's urging Congress to consider raising the minimum wage so that Wal-Mart customers don't have to struggle paycheck to paycheck.


Basically Wal-Mart is saying that they would like to sell more cheap shit to low wage people. In order to do so, since trade with China eliminated 1.5 Million US jobs, they want the government to raise the minimum wage so these people can spend this extra money at Wal-Mart. If Wal-Mart wants the people who would shop at Wal-Mart to have more money to spend then I think they need a good long hard look in the mirror. They could give all their impoverished 1.2 million employees raises, such as Henry Ford did, making it possible for his work force to be able to afford the products they were making. Or if Wal-Mart wants to make more money for the corporation then maybe they should cut the pay of their executives instead of gouging their vendors or taking it from their workers.

Some people would argue that Wal-Mart is forced to buy cheap Chinese goods and pay low wages with few benefits in order to stay competitive, profitable and keep their cheap-shit-buying consumer base coming back for more, but we all know that is a bunch of BS.

In 2004, H. Lee Scott Jr., President and CEO (not the founder) of Wal-Mart, made 22,991,599 dollars from Wal-Mart. If Wal-Mart only paid him $991,599 per year (a salary I would kill for), they could take the other $22,000,000 and give 5,288 employees a $2 per hour raise. S. Robson Walton, Chairman of Wal-Mart is worth 17 Billion dollars. If you divided up his net worth and paid it to all the US employees of Wal-Mart they would all get a $4.80 per hour raise which is $9,984 per year. If you gave all of Wal-Mart's 1,200,000 US employees a $2 per hour, or $4160 per year raise it would only account for 1.7% of Wal-Mart's annual sales revenue. Wal-Mart's employees earn 20% less than unionized grocery store employees.

It is estimated that the US government spends up to 1.5 billion dollars subsidizing Wal-Mart employees with public assistance, food stamps and health care as these employees cannot make it on Wal-Mart wages. You could say they don't have to work at Wal-Mart. But, when Wal-Mart is responsible for these people's stores going out of business, or the town bulldozed their store or former place of employment in order to build a Wal-Mart, or their job was lost due to illegal competition from a Chinese manufacturer that Wal-Mart now buys from, then where exactly are they supposed to work, especially if they live in a small town?

More facts about Wal-Mart:

Wal-Mart received 37 million in welfare payments out of the new transportation bill.

They posted approximately 9 Billion dollars in profit last year.

They have collected over 1 Billion in economic development subsidies from state and local governments.

Wal-Mart also receives advanced warning from the federal government about child labor law inspections.

Wal-Mart has been busted for having illegal immigrants working in their store for less than minimum wage which drives down American wages.

Exports to the US from China outnumber US exports to China by 5 to 1.

70% Of Wal-Mart products are made in China.

Wal-Mart accounts for 14% of the United States 126 Billion dollar trade deficit with China.

Trade unions in China are illegal.

A story about how lower earning stores who never received government subsidies are being forced out by a Walmart receiving 10 million in local subsidies under eminent domain.

These guys don't create jobs--they eliminate them. Don't get the two confused.

Don't shop at Wal-Mart. Support Main Street American ma and pa stores when possible. Remember, America is a Democracy before we are capitalists; we the people also have the right to keep Wal-Mart from building in our towns.

"There is one rule for industrialists and that is: Make the best quality of goods possible at the lowest cost possible, paying the highest wages possible." -Henry Ford
