    Absolutely the should. Why should the government not spend money to help people that catch a disease? It only seems like common sense to me.

    Well, congratulations. You put yourself at risk for a number of diseases yourself. How many people do you think were infected with HIV before we really knew what it was and knew it could kill? That could have been you. You also could have acquired syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, hepatitis or other diseases that we can treat and cure now because of research that you now want to deny AIDS victims. You are no better than the "sexually promiscuous" people who you say gave themselves AIDS. This whole thread is one gigantic failure on your part.

    Somehow you misread my post, I clearly stated I always used rubbers when I was single, I thought I was clear anyway.

    Oh crap, LOL. Sorry kerussll, I misread YOUR post. I thought you asked if I ever had sex WITH a rubber.

    Ok, no that was not clear. I asked if you ever had sex without a condom, and you replied "I always did" Way to read, dude.

    Anyway, now that you're not single you don't use condoms? Then there is a chance you could contract HIV. That is what the "unprotected sex" means that you keep blaming people for. Or are you just not having sex at all?

    You shouldn't make fun of a semi old guy that doesn't always wear his readers, you will get there someday too little girl, LOL. I am married and we are monogamous so no I don't use rubbers now, "dudette".

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.

    Would I use tax money? No. That position would be mine for all dieseases. That my phisophical position. That said curing or controlling HIV/AIDS is a good thing because of the knowledge you gain from though understanding of its mechanisms can be applied elsewhere, anothers word a cure for HIV isnt just a cure for HIV but other dieseases as well. I hope that makes sence.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

    My guess is 99% of the unprotected sex in the womans pie chart is representative of prostitutes. With men it's 99% gay sex.

    More sense than anyone else for whatever that is worth.
