I'm only half way through, at the AIDS part, but I must say, Bernie is bang on when he refers to democrats scaring the public into believing everyone has AIDS. Honestly, my health class spent at least a week talking about AIDS. In my bio class to show how a virus spreads and also a little on AIDS, we all had a cup of water, and two had sugar in theirs. Two people were monogamous, and one person to abstinence. The rest of us had "sex" (mixed water together) 4-5 times and he put a testing substance in, if your water turned blue, you had the virus. Nearly everyone had it, but in the real world, its not really like that. He points out one person who said "as we speak every hour 1-2 teenagers are receiving AIDS" (directed in America, and this was 5 years back) Its probably not even 1 every 6 hours. Yet there are all these statistics that 5000 teens have AIDS right now, and everyone has gotten high by 9th grade, and that everyone has gotten drunk, etc etc. Who makes these up? its so crazy people even try to believe this.

We did that same project when I was in High School. I thought it to be rather informative, but given that it was a controlled population and such...

Anyway, I too found that chapter extremely insightful. I never knew people would stoop to such low measures.

Unfortunately, numbers and statistics can be manipulated to "prove" whatever point one cares to make.

I know, too true.

We all know it's only queers and lefties who have AIDS (or should I say Gaydes).

That is the single most ridiculous thing I've ever heard, and totally misses the point of the posts it's answering. They didn't mean that, and it's obvious. :roll:

I hope you're some lefty troll who's here to make fun and hate on conservatives. Pretending to be a conservative to give themselves more opportunity to insult conservatives is a trademark of the left, so I wouldn't be at all surprised.

It would annoy me, but i'd rather that than thinking you seriously believe what you wrote above.

having now read your other posts, all i can say is don't you as a liberal, have anything better to do than come on here pretending to be a conservative and posting a bunch of meaningless crap with the intent of mocking conservatives?

this kind of pretending is another hallmark of a ridiculous liberal leftist mindset. can't defend your own positions, so best you can do is mock others.

weak.
