Hillary! To Cure Aids With Love
Well, not really, but the double intendre oozes

I almost let THIS go by the board, but I couldn't help myself...it's a disease you know, and I am seeking a support group.
Money and government alone cannot solve the problems, she said. AIDS "is a problem of our common humanity, and we are called to respond with love, with mercy and with urgency," she said.
Well, 'pieces' of this are true enough [the money and Government parts], but really..."love?" And, to sling biblical references around (well, ok-she WAS at a church) and suggest that she'd "been raised to understand the power and purpose of prayer" while quickly contradicting her message by rattling off how much MORE money her Government would spend just got me to giggling...which is it babycakes? Prayer, love, or greenbacks? Inquiring minds really DO want to know.
I was reminded of an old Sam Kinnison act where he suggested the answer to hunger in Africa was NOT to send them food, but to send them U-Hauls so they could...I don't know...MOVE to where the food was?
Anyway, it continued:
More below the fold...
Earlier this week Clinton released her proposal to combat the spread of HIV/AIDS, which focuses in part on fighting the spread of the illness in minority communities. As president, she would double the HIV/AIDS research budget at the National Institutes of Health — to $5.2 billion annually — and spend at least $50 billion within five years around the globe.
On Thursday, speaking to about 1,700 conference attendees, she said as president she would also call for spending $1 billion a year to address malaria infection in Africa. She set a goal of eradicating malaria deaths in Africa by the end of her second term.
Now, I don't want to come off as insensitive here, but really-what will $1 billion do exactly? Should we consider, as Limbaugh and others have suggested, sending them a couple million barrels of DDT instead? Nah, can't do that!!! My God people, it causes cancer in rats donthca know.
In all seriousness, I have a great deal of respect for the work of "I Will Africa" and malaria truly IS a 'fixable' problem, but Hillary and big chunks of beaureaucratic cash is NOT the answer-it has failed every time it's been tried. Just remember all she has accomplished for children's health issues in her extensive and illustrious career...absolutely nothing.
Sadly, while the I Will Africa folks are beaming over this remark from Hillary:
Our Favorite quote from the Senator's speech is when she said that it is appalling "that one million people die every year from a bug bite, and nearly all of them are children."
the children are still dying.
And Hillary continues to ooze contradiction and faux concern for a problem she really doesn't understand NOR give a flip about...unless she thinks it might score her some points.
And the children are still dying...
