Backing Out of the HIV Story?

A few days ago I pointed out this odd HIV story that claimed a health crisis was brewing. People with HIV are not taking the drugs that claim to slow the disease and stop it from spreading. What was odd about this story was that it definitively stated that only a minority of those who were infected with HIV were doing anything to make it less contagious, but it didn’t make any claims that, as a result of this irresponsible behavior, the spread of HIV had increased. So I had to suggest: “Perhaps Read more […]

HIV Health Crisis or Exposure of Scaremongering?

The news report at the Sun Herald takes the position that this is an HIV health crisis story: “70 percent of Americans with HIV don’t have virus under control.” Seventy percent of Americans who have HIV do not have the disease in check, and many of them are no longer receiving treatment, according to a study published Tuesday.

Healthcare.gov Security Fail Is a Government Tradition

In fact, this was not just an issue of incompetence, but also of deception and reckless endangerment as Americans were encouraged (and legally required!) to Read more […]

Bill Gates the Condom Missionary

Bill Gates has a mission; it is to stop people from breeding. Here he is declaring that population growth must be reduced to near zero. I’ll leave aside the weird remark about vaccines causing population reduction (but if you google it a bit you will find some interesting background). What Gates admittedly spells out here is a rationale for reducing the population expansion to almost zero. At least! Thus, he has a new project: The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has awarded scientists Read more […]

How One Man’s Compromise Derailed Social Conservatives

Dr. C. Everett Koop died. He was 96. Koop was the co-author of Whatever Happened to the Human Race? and an anti-abortion, anti-euthanasia  advocate. He was also a huge disappointment to conservatives. He became Surgeon General under Ronald Reagan. Liberals attacked him because of his anti-abortion stance and his relationship with Christian apologist Francis A. Schaeffer. “Foes noted that Koop traveled the country in 1979 and 1980 giving speeches that predicted a progression ‘from liberalized Read more […]
