    "Slander" means spoken. Written is "liable." At least try to get your terminology correct in your messages wanting 28,000,000 people to die including 3,200,000 children for your messages of death-wish of gays. I suppose I could quote your OP again.

    It's "libel", not "liable".

    If Sawyerlogginon was really concerned about preventability and cost, he'd be for the ending of diabetes research. After all, that's your own fault. And unlike HIV, that comes from a lifetime of poor choices. Know how many other non-preventable diseases we could tackle if we stopped diabetes research? After all, it's their own fault

    There are two different types of diabetes, only one of which can be caused by a lifetime of poor choices.

    Fine, no more funding for type 2 diabetes. As sawyer says, it's their own fault.

    I saw this article and thought of you Sawyer. Researchers use HIV to suppress childhood leukemia in a little girl.....WHAT?!?! Perhaps we can research both and good will come of it? Who would have thought!

The only reason we spend so much money on it is that so many people that have it or fear they may contract it are so vocal and being gay is
    so trendy as a current human right. So heres the question, should we be funding research to cure these people or worse yet find a vaccine to let them engage in their risky lifestyle with no consequences?

    EDIT: sorry I blew the poll part but I would be interested in your opinions.
    AIDS is not only transmitted through sex, but even if it were, it's an extremely deadly and contagious disease. It should be studied with an eye on the cure and I'd far rather see our tax money go to such efforts than to much of where it goes now.

    I saw that on TV and it was a heart warming story that may lead to a cancer cure but I did not see where AIDS research entered into it, it was just using disabled AIDS virus. Your point is well taken though, research on any disease can cross over to treating other diseases.
