    Where did you get that silly idea? CDC says about 50,000 cases a year and pretty steady in the US.

    Great move by Pence. From the article


    Indiana Republican Gov. Mike Pence said Wednesday he is considering a needle-exchange program as part of the public health emergency. Pence said he opposes needle exchanges as part of drug-control policy but is listening to health officials to determine the best way to stop the outbreak.

    Sucks that we can keep them alive now for decades after getting infected. Costing us billions in the process. Some diseases you wish would act more swiftly but AIDS just hangs around, and around, and around.

    Do you hate cancer patients too? Or is this just a veiled hatred to homosexuals.

    Yeah, but it's more than possible to develop it through your own actions. See: Lung cancer.

    Let me help numbnuts


    Disease:
    an impairment of the normal state of the living animal or plant body or one of its parts that interrupts or modifies the performance of the vital functions, is typically manifested by distinguishing signs and symptoms, and is a response to environmental factors (as malnutrition, industrial hazards, or climate), to specific infective agents (as worms, bacteria, or viruses), to inherent defects of the organism (as genetic anomalies), or to combinations of these factors : sickness, illness—called also morbus; compare health 1

    Now let me remind you of your comment

    So, you think it sucks that only HIV patients cost us money - Only a homosexual hating Conservative would state that.

    Awe how cute, a progressive armed with the talking points, but missing the mark.
    Cancer is a disease, like gum disease, and yes like HIV, the difference is that unlike cancer and gum disease, HIV is spread from human to human. Do you comprehend the distinction? Do you need me to speak slower for you?

    So now you're moving the goal posts? Not that I thought you had an argument anyway but you may want to look a little harder at my lean. Face it, it's disgusting that your worried more about money than a human's suffering.
