    The problem with picking any other disease is do you really think the money diverted from AIDS will go to the one you think 'means more'?

    I was not attacking you on this... I was agreeing with you.

    As you said you couldn't have been more wrong about a Willard Win.

    You are just as wrong here.
    I think you are the one dodging my question. How can you justify spending 15 billion tax payer dollars a year for AIDS when it effects so few people and DWARFS money spent on other diseases? As for your smoking etc question I do believe disease research should be prioritized and those you bring on yourself should be at the bottom of the list. AIDS is somehow at the very top of the list, I have no idea why except maybe politicians and people like you are afraid of being called anti gay, that and the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

    28,000,000 people have HIV/AIDS. About 2,000,000 die a year. Worldwide HIV & AIDS Statistics

    People you claim "DESERVE" to die.

    Obviously you laugh about the holocaust with 4,000,000 dead, saying "That was nothing and affected so few people as to be not worth mentioning." And reasons were given why they deserved it too.

    Any serious diseases with a lot of death resulting should be funded, so yes. The amount of funding should be dependent upon the impact the disease has on the general public though IMO.

    Sawyer-
    SOOOOOO many others have attempted to explain why when it comes to AIDS research and the treatment costs.

    You ignore them, I don't see the point of trying after all those folks.

    Now IF you had said all diseases you bring on yourself should not receive taxpayer dollars, you MIGHT be a bit more believable. IF you had not kept up the drumbeat of gays and crackheads you MIGHT be a bit more believable. IF you had not made the completely unsubstantiated claim that 99% of the women who got AIDS through hetero sex are whores, you MIGHT be believable. But of course you didn't

    You 'examples' are flinging dirty drawers at the wall hoping one sticks.

    Now here is one for you-

    If a dozen people look at you and say, "Man, you don't look so good. You feel ok?" You just might want to lay down for a bit...

    YOU are the one who said that those who have AIDS deserve to die. You said that right off the bat with you're original post. I think you are being VERY inconsiderate. The prognosis for AIDS is unlike most disorders/diseases.

    There are very few diseases worse the AIDs. Saying that someone "deserves" AIDS is sickening, in my opinion. No one "deserves" AIDS. AIDS is a terrible, terrible tragedy.

    Through out our history veneral diseases have been the scourge of mankind, yet all were as "preventable" as HIV. I'de say that is good reason to spend money for an aids vaccine. Your personal habits have little to do with it.

    Don't even try to worm your way out of this. We spend billions on various other diseases as well. Cutting HIV/AIDS from the roster does nothing, except fulfill some pathetic imaginary sense of self-righteousness and moral superiority over others.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Misquoting proves you are not paying attention or you are a liar, which is it?
