Repeat a lie often enough and people will believe it*

The Canadian Broadcasting Center (CBC) is doing what the mainstream media does so well for AIDS apologists:  repeating inaccurate headlines without reading or thinking: Premature Aging of the Brain Seen in HIV Patients That is simply not what this study reports, and I blogged about it just a few days ago here. It is pretty […more]

Ford profits from traditional values boycott - UPDATED

In 2007 and 2008 the boycott-happy Christian rightist organization American Family Association was touting its alleged success at beating down Ford Motor Company with a boycott because of that company’s gay-friendly marketing at Pride events. Never mind that American car manufacturers across the board were suffering from weak sales and bloated inventories of gas hogs […more]

Peter Staley's vivid pharma profit dream$

Peter loves all things Pharmaceutical and that is no surprise, considering he apparently lives a pretty good life taking his cut from Pharma profits. As he himself admits, he founded aidsmed.com so he could get off of his low paying disability income. The extent of his sell out is apparent to anyone looking at all the drug ads plastered above his mug on his blog.

Still, his latest post is pretty gauche, even for him.

This is your brain on AIDS drugs

Remember 2004 and 2005?  The years you couldn’t walk without falling and spraining your ankles? You could no longer climb the stairs in your home without dropping to your hands and knees, and could only come back down by crawling backwards? Do you remember the times you came out of unconsciousness to see the faces […more]

I really, really, don’t care what causes AIDS

Once in a while I come across a piece of writing that resonates so closely with my own experiences that I want to say “I wish I had written that”. Carl Stryg wrote just such an essay recently, published at The Truth Barrier, a website founded by journalist Celia Farber. From the first paragraph, Stryg […more]

News flash: AIDS not transmitted by chemically induced erections

What to do when research doesn’t provide the desired results? Conduct another study and change the parameters, of course. According to the AIDS mantra, penetrative sex without latex is the highest risk behavior for transmission of the HI virus. Yet, a recent study from the University of Florida–a state with a greater than usual interest […more]

1,722,713 to go - updated

Please pardon me while I toot my own horn for just a minute because I’m pretty excited about how quickly a few tweaks have improved the visibility of my blog. Online blogging platforms, such as WordPress and Blogger, and social networking sites like facebook have made blogging quite the simple task for many people.  Unless […more]
