    If you can't keep track of your discussions, what the point was, and then toss in something else....this will be going nowhere.

    But if you are going to start counting EVERYTHING the fed spends on HIV/AIDS, it still gets nowhere near military spending.....so you are still just shooting at the moon.

    Read post 191 again, deuce mentioned military spending, I ignored that and put quotes on the following statement and responded to it. You either did not notice that or are trying to make it look like I said something I did not say and are doing so on purpose, typical lib trick.

    And the quote was... drum roll......

    And my answer is still valid, we are not.

    Next time, don't try to wiggle away by saying my answer doesn't apply....when it does.

    You know, you may be right. Maybe we should reduce our AIDs spending in this time of little economic stability. There is no need to help to end a deadly disease (that affects the entire world mind you) because our businesses left. The logic in this argument is impeccable

    As long as you don't try to hang the "we are spending as much on AIDS as we are defense" statement around my neck I have no problem with your answer, we just disagree.

    Can you justify spending more on AIDS than on any other disease and probably even all other diseases put together?

    Sure, just as soon as you learn to either edit a quote or bold the portion you are responding to, and then make a direct, coherent statement in response.

    Just so you know, when a quote is wrapped around a sentence in a post that is generally what you are replying to, see above.

    So in effect, you are arguing that we should fund other disease research/care at higher levels.

    I agree.
