“How did she and her husband get HIV in the first place? Just having sex with each other? I don't think so. Don't make people with no ethics or morals into heroes when they are not. It is their own fault in all probability. Many African countries have "open" sexual practices in their villages, thus virtually promoting the disease.
If she and her alleged husband had not, in all likelihood had sex with other people they wouldn't, in all likelihood gotten the virus.”

“One of them could have had the virus before they married. You don't have the facts. The HIV virus came from the white group. You are the ones that have "open" sexual practices.”
NLeighton on Dec 3, 2013 at 10:15:42
“In that area of Africa HIV is very prevalent. It would not be uncommon for them to have contracted it at their own doctors office. When I visited that region we were told to bring our own sterile dental tools in case we needed emergency dental treatment because sterilization was not always performed. There as a medicine man in Zimbabwe that was telling men the cure to HIV was to rape healthy children/infants. Sad that you would immediately jump to judgment and condemnation rather than taking away the positive message of the story.”
Joy Annis on Dec 3, 2013 at 09:44:25
“Wow - you must be very uneducated if you think sex is the only way to get HIV. Read a book!”

“It must make you feel good to be able to put others down. You have no idea how she contracted HIV.”
Third ear on Dec 3, 2013 at 06:00:27
“You don't know anything about these people. If anyone could tell you with whom or how they developed HIV, then they probably wouldn't have it. America has just as many open sexual practices too. Which could explain the increase in sexually transmitted diseases, HIV just happens to be one of them.”

“Thank you GOD MN 4470 for your compassion. Take a look at your country ,take an aids walk ,look at the quilt tell it to the thousands of Americans who have died from aids that they deserved it because of their lack of morals. Try not to fall off your pedestal when looking down on them. The babies who, through no fault of their own born to drug addicts, the ones who received blood tranfusions,while on your lofty throne ,spare a minute to tell their loved ones that to their face ,not behind a computer”
sjmir on Dec 3, 2013 at 05:52:34
“Maybe she got it from a blood transfusion? Maybe she didn't practice "open sexual" practices as you stated but her husband cheated on her and gave it to her without her. Maybe it was drug use? Condition in her village might not have been sanitary and picked up virus from human urine or feces.”
“Walmart, K-Mart, and all other Thankgiving Day ruiners are all about greed, nothing more. By shopping there, on what should be holidays for all of the American people, we are losing our ethics and our souls. These bgiant corporations are ruining our country.
Bottom line, don't shop on Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, or any other national holiday that you feel is important enough to have a day of rest and rememberance.”

“The Republicans are a disgrace! They want to break the law by trying to blackmail the President into changing it after it was voted into law. They only represent the big business and rich people who are directly responsible for the terrible state the country is in.
Why is 90% of the population paying for the greed of the 10%?????????
Why do we, supposedly the best country in the world, not have the money to pay for our children's education, our senior's care, and fix the superstructure of the country?
“The Republican Party has morphed over the years since I was in it. It used to represent fiscal responsibility and slower change as opposed to the Democratic way of creating new programs at every opportunity as a way to spend money.
NOW the Republicans represent only the rich and, in particular, Big Business. All the Republicans want is to stay in office and the money that big business brings to the table is limitless, and probably tax deductible to a large extent.
Big Business wants to control the government because if they do there will be no regulation, no consumer safety laws, no food inspections, no environmental laws, and no legal recourse when your child is poisoned.
This, is why they are the party of NO!”
“Does anybody else wonder how much this will cost to build as compared to building refineries CLOSER to the oil?
And if this is "ALLEGEDLY" going to be part of our "energy independence" WHY are we shipping the oil overseas????????????????”
deweaver on Sep 24, 2013 at 23:09:00
“It's very possible to look up the numbers. The heavy oil refineries in the Gulf designed to use Venezuelan heavy crude, which is very similar to tar sands oil, cost at least 50 billion dollars and process at least 30 billion/yr of imported crude. A 7 billion dollar pipeline would feed these refineries and effectively cut out Venezuela.
If the oil doesn't move by pipeline, Warren Buffet's railroad will move it. He has already make hundreds of millions from these political delays in the pipeline. Transporting the oil by rail is less efficient from an energy standpoint and has greater risks.”
Montaignelover on Sep 24, 2013 at 22:14:09
“They don't want to build refineries in Canada. They don't want pipelines there either. That's why they have to run it through the US.”
“He has a right to his opinion, and many people feel the same way except they won't say it out loud for fear of being yelled down and being politically incorrect. The images that come to mind of men and women having sexual relations are not pleasant to look at for most, and difficult to impossible for many to accept.
And, having the vast minority scream and rant and rave that it is natural and that it HAS to be accepted has created an undercurrent of hostility against it.
The best changes should be slow and careful, NOT rammed down the throat of the rest of us.”

“I don't recall anybody asking you to watch "unpleasant disgusting spectacles" much less participate in them so why the obsession. Anybody drag you screaming into a gay orgy lately. I suspect probably not - so why all the uproar over people you don't know, and wouldn't associate with anyway. What exactly is being "rammed down your throat" - that other people might have rights to live their lives differently than you - gee how awful.”

“1) there has always been hostility to anything different by bigots, whether that be due to skin color, gender or orientation. 2) the fact you think gay people being treated equally and fairly is a problem, says a lot about you, nothing good by the way 3) you are free to say anything you want, what you want is to be able to say anything without criticism. Sorry, those days are over. You say something evil and bigoted, you get called a bigot, based on your statements”

“"He has a right to his opinion, and many people feel the same way except they won't say it out loud for fear of being yelled down and being politically incorrect."
that he does. its easier for him to be an open bigot because he gets paid to be an open bigot
"The images that come to mind of men and women having sexual relations are not pleasant to look at for most, and difficult to impossible for many to accept."
so you do not like the images that come to mind when men and women, heterosexuals, have sex? you do know that when men and women have sex together it is heterosexual- not homosexual, right?
"The best changes should be slow and careful, NOT rammed down the throat of the rest of us."
your ilk said that in the 60's about the legality of interracial marriage... that was quite swift and there world did not come crashing down, no one's heads exploded and the religious right are still alive and kicking.

Delay is as guilty as it possible to be and everyone knows it.”
“"Alleged" Governor Scott is the worst I have ever seen. He seems to hate the people of Florida who are poor and unemployed as much as he hates the environment. After laying off (40) or so of the hardest working people in the Department of Environmental Protection for nothing and then hiring stooges from the very companies that need regulating, what else can you say?????”
“Does Boehner ever look in the mirror. Just how "exceptional" is Congresses performance? The public opinion poll is at something like 18% who think that Congress is doing a good job. BOEHNER is the HEAD of the alleged House of Representatives, what about him and his performance????
In other countries he would have been impeached by now for lack of interest and dereliction of duty.”
“This CLOWN fights and blocks any legislation the Democrats put forward, no matter how important it is because the republicans all hate the Democrats, and his own important agenda is to turn lights off????
This is apparently what he feels is really important. Oklahoma, you all should be embarrassed to have elected this CLOWN.”
“What does he expect, another medal? Petraus gave out special privliges and inside secret military information to cocktail party friends in violation of strict military regulations, government secrecy protocols, and made himself look like a fool. He, as a general, is supposed to make sure that doesn't happen and he goes and does it himself! What a bozo! Then, he betrays his wife and sleeps with the woman (or women), telling her who knows what during "pillow talk. This is a man to be trusted?
Then a prestigious university gives him a teaching position. What were they thinking, giving a job teaching young women to a known, and probably multiple, philanderer?????
The fox is in the henhouse!
In most other countries he would have been court-martialed and fired in disgrace. Here is rewarded for his lack of trustworthiness by getting another position where he can take advantage of women. Also, in other counties he might have been put up against a wall and shot!!!!!!!!!!!!”
“What a lunatic! What is he going to do, discipline employees who forget to shutoff the lights? I would like to see his house and see if his lights are turned off. I figure at least one is turned off and it's above his shoulders.
Typical repuiblican, looking for any way to criticize federal employees. How, for the love of Mike, can people like him go to work for the federal government and HATE federal employees like he does. Coburn is another republican who is behind the effort to destroy the Postal Service so he can privatize it, run the rates thru the roof and sell it off to his big campaign contributors. He hates the Postal Service because he can't make any money off of it.”
“Maybe Mr. King should take a look at all the seniors on food aid, or punishing Wall St for stealing our money, or see all the people in " the richest country in the world" who can't pay for a doctor, the school systems that are in tatters, etc., etc., before he wants to spend more of the money we are borrowing from our enemies.
Maybe this is an trick on King's part to pull the shell game on the taxpayers, getting them to focus on Syria and not look at what a pathetic, selfish, and thoroughly undemocratic lack of effort CONGRESS has out into IT'S job.
I am sick and tired of using my tax money all over the world but here, where we desperately need it.
The big question is, why doesn't he see I???? AND, is he misdirecting us on purpose??????????????????????????”

“The only reason I see for this strange insistence - from a Nobel Peace Prize winner - on going warring a country that has not aggressed us, is that there is a need to divert attention from something that is brewing in the cauldron. Another scandal? It has got to be a doozie. Now for the Obama worshippers to crow... You still have some freedom of speech.”
“Why did Boehner bother sending a letter, so he can then criticize any action President Obama takes???
The House of alleged Representatives is a disgrace. All the have done for 8 years is block everything the President has tried to do to improve the country because he is a Democrat, and maybe because he is black. The worst of a bad bunch has been McConnell in the Senate. He actually said his "goal in life was to prevent the President from getting a second term". What a prejudiced jerk, and, a disgrace to democracy.
The "Party of No" is should be red with embarrassment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

“Really, you can't say that about the Senate, you know it takes to two to tango. The Senate proposes bills that they know the Congress will not pass, and everything that the House sends to the Senate is DOA. So there you go, Two parties the same result. BTW why did the DEMS wait until after the election in regards to Benghazi, HMMM that right cover up, make up stories so Obama could be re-elected. Now we have IRS, NSA, AP, DOJ, Still Benghazi, Fast n Furious that was protected by his highness to protect Holder. So you say disgrace I say potato.”

“I would like to know how many black families adopt children of any race?
Then I would like to know how many white families adopt children of any race?
Then I would like to know there are so many fatherless families for African American families?
Then I would like to know how anyone can complain when a child is adopted by any family?
Lastly, I would comment that this is just another example of reverse racism against this man who is obviously better than the people that sired the child.”
sandirella on Aug 29, 2013 at 04:56:52
“I heard that there is a place where you can find the information "you would like to know." It is called the i internet or the world wide web. Because this child was up for adoption does not mean that his birth parents are no good. Some people are unable to provide for a child. Some teens get in over their heads and cannot care for a child. Children up for adoption are available for many reasons. I commend these parents for thinking of the child fist and providing them a chance for a good life with a good family.”
Harper Lee on Aug 29, 2013 at 01:59:10
“You are assuming that the people that are asking this man who he is are all black. And your comments are coming from a 'dark' place. I have to hope that you will never adopt a child and give them your views. But if you do, please keep them in the trailer park with you. Sorry did I assume that you were a closed minded, ignorant, human being. I think I did.”
“Sure, and the fact that he is 30 years older than her, and looks it, means nothing. C'mon, get a grasp on the blatantly obvious.”

“I agree. The first thing I think of when I hear of such a huge age difference is "money". Sure, she has her own, but then you have the added power of being Mrs. Michael Douglas on top of it. I'm not saying it's true in every case, but it just seems so obvious. Really, who's surprised?”
“Say again? It wasn't racially motivated? Bull ! ! ! When it's white kids it will be racially motivated, but somehow, when its minority kids it isn't. Try moving into a black neighborhood and see what happens. Your house and cars will be broken into and vandalized, your kids will have problems with the neighborhood kids, and you will get all kinds of hateful, intimidating looks from the neighborhood people.
Now if a black family moves into a white neighborhood, the white people trip over themselves trying to be nice and neighborly.
Like they said when Whitney Houston was so popular, "she was too white".”
