national STD day anyone?

Americans might be the most duped people in the world. December 1, 2014, was designated as "World AIDS Day." What a crock! The White House had a gigantic red ribbon (the HIV symbol) hanging outside of it. Malarkey!

World AIDS Day is just another manifestation of the liberal media/entertainers/politicians need to control what Americans should value. It's a disease that predominantly affects two of the groups upon which liberals rely for votes--gays and minorities. That's why AIDS is important--it always boils down to politics.

According to the Center for Disease Control, how many people in the U.S. are living with HIV infection? C'mon take a guess. Yep, 1.2 million. That's not even 1 percent of the U.S. population.

One hundred times more U.S. citizens have Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) than AIDS. Each year, more Americans get non-Hodgkin lymphoma than AIDS. In the U.S., more people die in car crashes each year than from AIDS. Why don't we have the same fanfare to make people aware of these issues like we do for HIV? And why are we discouraged from stating the facts about the disease--most people contract it from sexual activity or drug use. In other words, AIDS is preventable.

It's not a matter of wishing ill on anyone, but it's a matter of putting things into perspective and not heralding one malady over another because of "political correctness." I'm tired of it.
