California – It’s Okay to Spread Aids

With the stroke of a pen California governor Jerry Brown signed a bill into law. A law that’s one step closer to making it okay to spread the HIV virus.

From felony to misdemeanor

The law changes the penalty if a person with HIV knowingly has unprotected sex (risking their lives) with someone and doesn’t disclose from a felony to a misdemeanor.

The rational is that ‘with effective HIV treatment its next to impossible to transmit the virus’. The key  word in that sentence is ‘effective treatment’. HIV treatment is a process. There’s a common misconception that it’s ‘pop a pill a day and the HIV goes away’.

Um no it doesn’t…

It can take months or even years to to find effective treatments depending upon the strand of HIV that a person is infected with.

Then there’s the little publicized fact that drug resistant HIV strands are emerging.

…more than 10% of people who are starting antiretroviral therapy in their country have a strain of the virus that’s resistant to the drugs used to treat it. source World Health Organization 

and

Increasing HIV drug resistance trends could lead to more infections and deaths. Mathematical modelling shows an additional 135 000 deaths and 105 000 new infections could follow in the next five years if no action is taken, and HIV treatment costs could increase by an additional US$ 650 million during this time. source World Health Organization 

New law encourages recklessness

One of the biggest deterrents to contracting HIV was and still is the stigma. In many circles having HIV is still a dating death sentence. This law is attempting to remove that stigma. However, it can be argued that the stigma is one of the last remaining forces we have to discourage reckless behavior. Now that a person infected with the HIV virus no longer has to disclose his status HIV might as well become the new common cold.

Oh wait…

There’s no cure for HIV. While, thankfully, we have developed more and more effective treatments against HIV it can’t be cured and having HIV is not the cake walk many people think it is. The medicines still have horrible side effects including vomiting, nausea, headache, and more source: national institute of health and science .  

The reality is once a person stops treating they die. There are still many people that decide they’d rather die than live under an HIV anti-retro viral regime.

Its not just HIV

With the increased recklessness as demonstrated by this report of lack of condom use we get transmissions of other STI’s.  While HIV transmissions are going down thanks to new and improve drugs rates of other STI infections are going up.  According to live science:

In 2016, a total of more than 2 million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis were reported in the United States, according to the report, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s the highest number of cases ever reported for these three STDs combined since the agency began tracking STDs in 1941. source livescience

We’ve spent so much time and effort educating about HIV we forgot about all the other STI’s.

Many gay men have the misconception that because they’re on Prep its okay to have unprotected sex with many partners.

If you think you may have been exposed to an STI but don’t want to go to a clinic you can get an STI Home Test Kits for Men from Amazon.com 

California what were you thinking?

There is nothing but sympathy for those with HIV. They are our brothers and sisters and should not be treated as lepers. We can achieve this through  increased education. But to suggest that anyone can knowingly expose an innocent person to this horrible virus with little to no consequence is nothing short of lunacy. People have a right to know if they are being exposed to a life changing disease and make the decision for themselves.   This law takes away the right of the many to be informed to protect the egos of the few.  Good job California.

Edith Windsor-The Defeater of DOMA has Died

On September 12th 2017 Edith Windsor died. Most likely due to heart issues. Ms. Windsor is credited with defeating the so-called ‘defense of marriage act’ or DOMA in the landmark case Windsor v. United States.

Windsor v. United States

Edith Windsor at Washington DC Pride

When her wife died on February 5, 2009, Windsor became the executor and sole beneficiary of her estate, via a revocable trust. Windsor was required to pay $363,053 in federal estate taxes on her inheritance of her wife’s estate. Had federal law recognized the validity of their marriage, Windsor would have qualified for an unlimited spousal deduction and paid no federal estate taxes. She therefore sued the government claiming the defense of marriage act violated the 5th amendment. The Supreme Court agreed. In June of 2013 it issued a ruling that overturned section 3 (the meat) of DOMA. 

A patriot and a hero

Ms. Windsor has long been an LGBT activist. In June 1969, Windsor and  her spouse returned from a vacation in Italy to discover the Stonewall Riots had begun the night before. In the following years, the couple publicly participated in LGBT marches and events. They also lent their Cadillac convertible to LGBT rights organizations.

She volunteered for the Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders, the East End Gay Organization,[3] the LGBT Community Center, 1994 Gay Games New York, and helped found Old Queers Acting Up, an improv group utilizing skits to address social justice issues. She served on the board of Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE) from 1986 to 1988 and again from 2005 to 2007.

Windsor continued to be a public advocate for same-sex marriage in the years following United States v. Windsor. She helped Senator Dianne Feinstein and Representative Jerrold Nadler introduce the Respect for Marriage Act at a press conference in Washington, D.C. in 2011. She was also a prominent supporter of Israeli LGBT rights group A Wider Bridge.

Michelle Bachlet Good for Gays Bad for Chile

Michelle Bachlet good for gays bad for Chile

On Monday August 28th leftist Chilean President Michelle Bachlet sent a bill to legalize gay marriage in her country.  In 2015 the country allowed civil unions. Reuters reports it is unclear if the bill will pass before she leaves office this in 2018. Ms. Bachelet has passed many leftist reforms such as tax hikes and way more government spending.

Me and a friend standing in front of the skyline of Santiago de Chile

Chile was once the shining light on the hill for South America. They were the first S. American country to join the OCED (basically a club for wealthy nations). Chileans are the only Latin American can enter the United States without a visa. They went from the poorest nation in South America to the richest.  Chileans live the longest in South America. They call it an ‘economic miracle’ I call it free market economics.  The conservative Heritage Foundation actually ranks Chile as more free than the US economically.  Unfortunately those tables are turning thanks to Bachelet.

Economic Freedom Index Profile of Chile

Pinochet led his country into prosperity

In 1973 Augusto Pinochet seized power in a Coup d’état. He introduced economic freedom to the country which led it to be the economic powerhouse it is today. Under Pinochet Chile went from the poorest nation in Latin to the richest country in Latin America even surpassing Mexico. Under the previous typical Latin American socialist president  Salvador Allende Chile experienced inflation topping 140%. While Pinochet made mistakes in the way he squashing dissent his goal was to keep socialism away from Chile. He knew the ravages that socialism wouldbring his nation. Enter Michelle Bachlet.

Bachelet is bad for Chile

They wanted a bonus. The idiots.

Bachlet was first elected to the presidency in 2006 and again in 2013. As mentioned before she has raised taxes. The corporate tax rate is now 25%. She increased the size of government. Government spending is now 24.3% of GDP. Public debt is now 17.1% of GDP.  S&P downgraded Chile’s credit rating for the first time in almost 20 years. Chile now has an unemployment rate of about 7%. A big reason was the drop in commodities prices particular copper to which Chile is highly dependent. That being said Bachelet’s socialist shopping spree with the nation’s credit card didn’t help.  Not to mention the corruption scandals that have plagued her presidency.

Bachelet, Sanders, and Hugo Chavez all use the same playbook

It boggles the mind since Chilenos have neighbors that have been ravaged by socialism that they too would choose this path. Maybe it’s the hyper inflation of Argentina or the economic collapse and hyper-corruption of Brazil that appeals to them? It could also be the lack of even basic medical care in Venezuela that sheds of good light on socialism? I am, of course, being factitious. The allure of something for nothng is strong to all peoples. Even in America the rise of Bernie Sanders is frightening to say the least. Charlatans like Bachelet, Sanders and Hugo Chavez all use the same play book. They not only promise free stuff based on someone else’s labor but they assure people that they are entitled to the fruits of other peoples’ labor. How long until Chile joins its neighbors in economic ruin? If it continues on the Bachlet path not long.

I’m a Gay Black Man & I Support Trump

Yes a gay black man supports Trump

The liberal media constantly paints Trump supporters as racist neo-nazis. They say because they support him that conservatives must be of the same creed. Many American communists voted for Hillary Clinton. Does that mean that most of Clinton’s supporters are communists? The liberal media is punishing Trump for even daring to condemn the violence of left wing protesters at Charolottesville.  It’s only wrong when conservatives do it apparently.  Well let me tell you I am an openly gay black man who voted for Trump and would do it again 10x. I am not alone either.

Why  a gay black man voted for Trump

I am an openly gay black male so I’m a very unlikely voter for Trump. Honestly it was one of the hardest voting decisions I’ve made in my entire life. It really came down the last second. The presidential race was first on the ballot. I skipped it. I had declared my support for Trump before on Quora but his remarks on women, his ‘locker room talk’ really disturbed me plus his refusal to release his tax returns. Once I finished voting for all the other offices and candidates I went back to the first question of who I wanted to vote for president. I was going to reluctantly vote for Hillary Clinton but I just couldn’t. Aside from reasons I already stated in my previous answers Trump was the right choice for me because

1. It’s only sexist if men do it

The unfair treatment of men in our overtly politically correct pop culture is irksome to me. An example if a man brings a foreign women over here and he abuses her she can leave him and the government will let her stay in the United States. However, if a foreign woman divorces her American husband as soon as her 10 yr green card comes in the mail then that’s his problem. The government’s attitude is he should’ve known her better before marrying her. Never mind that maybe the woman should’ve gotten to know her husband better to make sure he wasn’t an abuser prior to marring him also. We literally live in a society where it’s okay for a bunch of cackling women to laugh about a wife mutilating her husband because he asked her for a divorce on national television.

Yet if Donald Trump talks about ‘pussy’ he’s blasted as a monster. I didn’t like the locker room talk but lets be honest. Women talk shit about men too. I’m around women all the time and I hear things like ‘oh he had a small penis’ ‘he didn’t hit it right’ or ‘he doesn’t have a butt’ and that’s perfectly fine. If you go to youtube there’s a ton of videos of women declaring that ‘size matters!’ and that’s fine. But if man says breast size matters to him he’s declared a male chauvinist pig. Then there’s the 79 cents of the dollar claim that feminists love to tout. Yet no feminist has been able to answer me if companies were really able to pay women less than men for the same work then why don’t the money grubbing profit driven corporations only hire women? I felt that Trump was a statement against that.

2. Illegal immigration

I have been to many different countries and spent a significant amount of time in two in particular. Each time I was contributing to their economies by working or spending money there. Yet I still went through their expensive and arduous immigration procedures. If I had questioned them I would’ve been considered an ‘arrogant American’. How dare these people come in here illegally and then demand rights and money from the government. The United States is the most generous country to illegal immigrants that I have seen on Earth but its still not enough for them. It’s not even PC now to say illegal immigrant. We can’t acknowledge that they broke the law. We have to call it ‘undocumented’. I’m sick of the democratic party pandering to these people and their descendants. They get free health care in some scenarios while our veterans who put their lives on the line for our nation are literally dying waiting for treatment. There are millions of people that endure our immigration system and come here legally every year. So should they. #buildthewall

3. Inner cities

The inner cities have been controlled by democrats for decades and yet black poverty has worsened. The young black male unemployment rate in NYC is near 45%. Black income declined under Obama. [eafl id=”5873″ name=”Walter Williams” text=”Black unemployment”] in Blue states such as CA and NY is more than double that of white employment. Young Black Men Are the First to go With Minimum Wage Hike . The liberal solution to every problem is to throw other peoples’ money at it. How about letting people work to solve their own problems? I used to work for a government funded after school tutoring agency. This agency provided high quality in home tutoring for struggling low income students free of charge to the families. But very expensive to the tax payer of course. There were times when I’d show up at the family’s home and they weren’t even there. Parents wouldn’t return calls to set up an initial appointment. All this despite the fact that their child couldn’t read or do basic math. I showed up at one home to tutor a 12 y/o Hispanic boy that had only a 3rd grade reading level and waited 45 minutes for the family to show up. I only was required to wait 15 by the way. Finally they decided to show up. They told me ‘oh sorry we were at the park’. Government can’t solve every problem and the tax payers can’t make good parents. Ironically the families that were actually paying for my services out of their own pockets ALWAYS showed up. They didn’t miss one appointment because they knew the policy was if they didn’t cancel in 24 hours they still had to pay. When you just give people things they don’t value them. Everyone seems to understand that except for democratic politicians.

4. The arrogance of Hillary Clinton and the political establishment itself

You know only in politics can you do a bad job at something and then expect a promotion and a raise. Clinton was one of the worst Secretaries of State we have ever had and I really mean that. During her tenure a US ambassador was killed in the line of duty. The first time in almost half a century that has happened. The FBI classified her handling of sensitive government information as ‘grossly negligent’ and that she ‘created a culture of carelessness’ in the state department. It’s well known she was one of the biggest war mongers in the entire cabinet of president Obama. People who tried to convince me to vote for Hillary kept citing her experience but I always retorted: What experience? Experience in failure?
