Obama Welcomes AIDS

The lamestream media told you:

The United Nations is praising the United States and South Korea for lifting travel bans on people with HIV and is urging 57 other countries with travel restrictions to end them. U.S. President Barack Obama signed a bill late last year to overturn a 22-year-old travel and immigration ban against people with the virus that causes AIDS, and it came into force on Jan.3. http://tinyurl.com/yl8q6pd. "If we want to be the global leader in combating HIV/AIDS, we need to act like it," Obama said at the White House before signing.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Allowing people to simply enter the United States with a highly contagious, virtually untreatable and lethal disease is praiseworthy... how exactly?

"More than 1 million people live with HIV/AIDS in the U.S., and more than 56,000 new infections are reported every year," says the Huffington Post, which notes that having the disease carries with it a social stigma, but failed to note the death-rate stigma -- 6,000 people daily, according to Harold Pollack writing for The New Republic Online. It would be a front-page story, he said, but after 30 years it has become "boring." Maybe this new health-care policy of Mr. Obama can breathe some life back into the moribund subject.
