Bravo. Seriously.

How many additional people contracted HIV during the period when condoms were banned?

the study the article was based on.

Look, the abstinence thing was stupid. Could it have been better? of course. But the simple fact is, the program helped.


But
My point is still not answered, nor do I think the study estimated how many new people were infected because condoms, which used to be available, became unavailable.

An additional point, which is such an amazing lie with numbers, is:
How many people died during the period? Was the death rate still rising? What was the total number of infected?

A) condoms only - X people did not get infected
B) treatment only - Y people didnt die
C) both - Some number greater than Y

/yes of course it was nice to give the drug companies billions of dollars to save a 1 million people.
/whoops, we could have saved money and bought generics?

2) WHAT THE FARK - why would anyone cut off funding to a program which was KNOWN to reduce aids.

so yah
from what I can tell this is doubleplusgood
/either the perfect troll or the rewriting of history
/perfect either way


It also put a major chill on organisations working with sex workers, in spite of the incredible success such initiatives had had in places like Thailand.

The funding was great (even if it was necessary in part because of the US-initiated international trade restrictions on cheap generic drugs from places like India), and I'd like to see that expanded - but the moralising restrictions need to be dropped. There were places where PEPFAR did more harm than good by ending prevention programs that were working.

You want Bush to be praised for helping poor people? How about education -- how many high schools did he build for disadvantaged youth? Did he freeze/lower/waive tuition rates? Did he increase literacy levels, math and science tests, learning programs, access to quality teachers and equipment, courses, classrooms, environment and degrees? How much money did he spend on improving education conditions for the lower classes? No Child Left Behind was a complete failure. All of these things got worse under his administration. And Education is probably the most important thing you can do for poverty. But hey, he gave money to fight AIDS in Africa. You know what also fights AIDS? EDUCATION.

How about food? Did Bush push for healthier food programs for low income people? Did he try and stock their fridges full of real fruits and vegetables? Did he advocate more awareness programs and healthier eating and diets? Or did he just sign another Farm Bill to stuff them full of salt, grease, sugar, and liquid corn for the rest of their lives?

How about civil infrastructure? Did Bush ever do anything f.... oh never mind.

It takes a special kind of insanity to call providing poor people medicine and medical treatment an act of pure malevolence. One of the things I often accuse liberals of is not caring about results, only intentions. In this case, the fact that millions of lives are saved thanks to anti-viral medication becoming available is still viewed in a negative way because Bush did it and clearly his intentions were bad. You are a text book example of a religious extremist where political ideology has replaced religion. Left wing ideology is substituted for the word of god, making everything without exception that isn't 'liberal', somehow evil.

Ever noticed that a lot of time this sort of derp seems to play on the hope that whoever sees it will be extra outraged because they are too stupid to know a widely known fact that would make the story not nearly as big a deal as they want it to seem?  In the case of this story, I think the NRO is hoping that morons reading this won't know that having a PhD entitles you to use the title "Doctor" even if your PhD isn't in a medical field, and thus they'll think that Jill Biden is a liar.

Similarly, I think a lot of Rush Limbaugh's attack on Sandra Fluke hinged on his listeners not knowing a couple of facts: hormonal birth control pills aren't always used for contraception, and may be used for purely medical reasons, and the dosage on birth control is the same regardless of the amount of sexual activity of the person taking them.  I mention the second one because at several points during Limbaugh's ranting, he seemed to imply that Fluke was such a slutty whore she couldn't afford to buy birth control herself.  Uh, no, Rush.  It's not like Viagra, where you have to take a pill every time you need to get it up for the Dominican boy you just bought.

I'm having a hard time understanding how anyone thinks the Africa AIDS thing was a good idea.  The US sends a bunch of AIDS drugs to African nations, and tada, fewer people die as a result of AIDS (science does work).  Nice, except they aren't cured; their life now depends on the generosity of the US government.  As a bonus, infection rates go up, because condoms are obviously evil and no-one should have them.  It's OK, though, because as long as the US keeps spending money, the death rate from AIDS will stay down.  You might want to spend some brain-power on considering what happens when you guys stop sending the cheques.  I can't say you've made things obviously better.

angrycrank: There were places where PEPFAR did more harm than good by ending prevention programs that were working.


And that is the truly depressing part of the story.
Working programs were ended.
They were replaced with programs which didnt work.

It wasnt the money. The same money was still spent.
It was all about religion.

And that is sad.

Quoted for goddamn truth. If it wasn't the results corporate-hired Indian IT workers pressed into service for 0.01 pennies a post, i'd almost be sad about it.

Alphax: I dunno.. seems there's some disagreement about whether or not the no condoms rule completely cancelled out the effectiveness of the funding.


no
no there is not

A million addition Aids/HIV+ patients (wild ass guess) can not be cancelled out by "additional funding."
1) Say the net is close to breakeven. HOW THE FARK is he the best pres ever by that measure?
2) WHAT THE FARK - why would anyone cut off funding to a program which was KNOWN to reduce aids.

so yah
from what I can tell this is doubleplusgood

Alphax: My family had MSNBC on yesterday in mid day, and they were discussing the George W. Bush library opening.  And some guy on there talked about how Bush kept us safe for 7 years after 9/11, and how the Bush Tax Cuts provided years of job growth, even today.  Yeah, I was screaming at the TV for a bit, after those two bald faced lies.


lol
and yah, they dont actually think that they are lying.
It would be interesting to see an fMRI of these people when they repeat this bit of history.
It would also be interesting to see their other delusions tested.

/Imagine a world when newscasters were attached to a real time lie detector, and everyone got to see whether the news was reporting the truth or not
/I guess there would only be a need for one news channel in that case.
/yes I know bias will always be there
/when does their belief in a false reality lead to the creation of a new religion?

cman: Snapper Carr: Look, everyone gives him credit for what he did with AIDS in Africa. Everyone, even a sanctimonious douchebag like Bono recognized it. But he was not president of an African nation. The damage he caused to the country that elected him its chief executive (and by extension most of the rest of the world) far outweighs the good he did in a single continent on a single issue.

Translation: I, Snapper Car, can never let Bush JR have any sort of victory.


Sort of like the robber deserves credit for the heist; the camera footage and that dyepack exploding shouldn't reduce that gloried moment..

unless you meant a "mission accomplished" sort of victory...

Mentat: Gyrfalcon: More than ANY OTHER PRESIDENT???

Boy, modern education has sure deteriorated in the last 50 years.

Oh sure, if you want to get into that whole "Truman desegregating the armed forces" or "Johnson signing civil rights legislation" thing.


I'm sure the author didn't intend this headline to be a factual statement.

Indeed, and I wish more liberal media members would follow the shining example of Ellen Ratner by being willing to give praise to politicians on the other side of the aisle when they deserve.

If just through his administrations work on Aids in Africa,  I would bet that it's close.  I'm liberal as hell,  but he certainly did more for the aids crisis in africa than any other president has.

NOTE: that's "Fringe" as in the popular show about visiting alternate realities. It wasn't really clear in the headline.

/another story about on Africa. His only lasting accomplishment... was completely unrelated to the modern GOP platform. GO FIGURE.
