WordPress provides bloggers with a tool that reports the search terms that result in a link to this blog. Needless to say, as a relatively new blogger I don’t get much traffic here. About once a week or so, however, I notice someone is finding this site by searching for something like “survive AIDS”. Yesterday […more]
(Note: This was originally written as my first blog post on OpenSalon (account no longer active) February 6, 2009, where it was selected as an Editor’s Pick and People’s Pick.) I have only a few fond memories of growing up in Colby, Kansas in the 1960s. Actually, I was raised on a wheat farm about […more]
After writing yesterday’s post, I came across this article in the New York Review of Books, written by Marcia Angell, former editor of no less than the New England Journal of Medicine, currently Senior Lecturer in the Department of Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School. In this must read, entitled “Drug Companies & Doctors: A […more]
There may be some points of disagreement among us dissidents, and that’s fine.

“HIV-disease” (or “AIDS” or “HIV-positive” or “HIV/AIDS”, or whatever they start calling it next month) is toxic, harmful and dangerously unsustainable in the long run. ARVs (Anti-Retrovirals) are even starting to be used illicitly for their “hallucinogenic and relaxing effect” in some quarters of the world.

There is a lack of agreement among them about how HIV causes immune suppression, or even how HIV came into existence for that matter. One thing they all do seem to agree on is how essential it is that every Poz person take drugs to extend their life. Virtually every website devoted to “HIV/AIDS” (The Body, AIDSMeds, AEGiS, to name just a few) is replete with articles, messages and advertising promoting “compliance”, as well as tips, blogs and discussion groups to address the inevitable “side effects”, which should more accurately be referred to as “direct effects”.

Today is the start of Round 2 in change.org’s Ideas for Change in America project. It should be known the Ideas finalists did not result from grass-roots driven democracy. Rather, the process has been tainted by unfair tactics and strategies by participants and organizers alike.
Despite recent disclaimers that they are a “private” venture, many of us who participated in the Idea project were led to perceive the site was
Welcome to my blog. I have had a blog for more than a year, but never posted after the first entry. Maybe it was due to poor health and lack of energy and motivation, but I was also trying to be super-geeky and host it at my own domain. Hopefully, hosting here at WordPress will simplify the process so I can focus on writing, rather than FTPing and troubleshooting upgrades.
I will soon be posting a critique of the recent Ideas for change in America project at change.org, but didn’t want that to be my very first post here.
