Would this be the Oregon GOP's definition of "The Peter Principle"???

Well now we will have all sorts of posts claiming that the GOP is anti-science, ignorant and the like. When obviously the mans take on AIDS is a correct one. Of course AIDS was used to increase social engineering in our government school system, as well as the general behavior of the population as well. It's almost a comedy when you think about it. Oprah claiming that one in five college students would get AIDS, middle aged women frantically calling AIDS hot lines, being tested, and basically scared to death. The claim that AIDS was everyones disease, when it was well known that a person had to engage in certain actions to get it. Honestly I have a better chance of being hit by a lighting bolt. The connection between the tactics that promote man made global warming and the tactics used to spread hysteria over AIDS are if not similar exactly the same. Nothing pleases the statist more then a good manufactured crisis.

Didn't have a blood transfusion in the 80's did you?

That was before testing for HIV in blood was mandatory and universal.

Many "Everyones" were afflicted with HIV and eventually full blown AIDS by innocently being in need of a blood transfusion.

BTW, you can bury your head in the sand till the evidence is irrefutable, but by then it might be too late.

To be fair it's never going to be "too late" when dealing with Climate Change. It's merely a question of how many will die and what the cost will be.

The more hesitation because of opposition from skeptics, inaction by Politicians and out right deception by industries will simply add to the body count and the eventual cost.

There was a joke in the early 80's that Ronald Reagan was told of a new Health Problem, that there was this disease that affected Homosexuals, Drug users and Haitians.

His reply was, What's the problem?

Joke was on us wasn't it?

Heard any good ones about Climate Change lately?

Very true about that testing. In fact that alone would have gone a long way to stop the spread of AIDS. It would have also been helpful if gay activist group weren't engaged in blood terrorism by purposely contaminating the blood supply. Think Act Up. At no time did the Aids issue call for teaching safe sex to 1st graders. Instead the government was engaged in a policy that never addressed the causes of Aids. They didn't want to stigmatize people. So they lied about it. Numerous frauds have also been found regarding the climate change issue. I would think that combating a problem in a truthful way would be effective, while using exaggerations and lies would only cause resistance. An honest presentation of costs and benefits may gain traction. That is of course if there is any truth to the idea that what we do in the US would have any effect at all.

Seems that the more outrageous the ideology, the more welcoming these folks are to the Tea Party Right. It's one thing to be against humans causing climate change... quite another to say that Aids was hyped to create a "crisis." And what crisis would that be exactly? No doubt as a biochemist he believes The Lord created the earth and heavens in six days and that the earth is a little over 6,000 years old too.

This article doesn't even mention Robinson's homeschool "textbook" sales, which include patently racist writings from the 19th Century. And I'm not talking about Huck Finn.

Oregon is a "blue" state.

And this will just make it even more likely to vote Democrat.

Baggers just can't help themselves, can they?

They gotta fly that freak flag.

"There was still a debate over the cause of AIDS and I was writing about that," Robinson said in response. "I wrote about all the other hypotheses, too. Fifteen years ago, the scientific debate was different than it is today."

If the Flintstones were revived in the format of a "reality" show, I'll bet many knuckle-dragging right wingers would think it was real.

One biochemist who rejects science that is accepted around the world is no big deal. Wonder how much money he pocketed turning against his profession.

The GOP's idea of rebranding is putting the same stale, tasteless bran flakes in a new box.
09:07 AM on 08/12/2013
And the Republicans cannot understand why their numbers keep decreasing?
