Lifelong AIDS Alliance’s Symbol

What does it mean?

On the surface, it simply appears to be two red ribbons connected seamlessly to each other.

But what well-known symbol does the joining of the red ribbons create? The infinity symbol. We’ve moved beyond ‘lifelong’ into forever. AIDS forever?

The diagnosis itself is considered irreversible. Perhaps that’s what LAA is telling us. A “positive” diagnosis is forever. There is no escape from it. No healing from it. No hope.

Taking a look at this image in a slightly different way, it looks like a mask. A red mask. It looks angry, malevolent.

What is LAA trying to tell us through it’s symbol? Is it an uplifting symbol? Does it make you feel good when you see it? Does it give you hope?

Scientists faking results and omitting unwanted findings in research

RTB:  From the Telegraph…

Faking results and omitting inconvenient truths in scientific research is more widespread than originally thought, a study suggests.

More than two-thirds of researchers said they knew of colleagues who had committed “questionable” practices and one in seven said that included inventing findings. Continue reading Scientists faking results and omitting unwanted findings in research

Late one night in a small Alabama cemetery, Vance Vanders had a run-in with the local witch doctor, who wafted a bottle of unpleasant-smelling liquid in front of his face, and told him he was about to die and that no one could save him.

Back home, Vanders took to his bed and began to deteriorate. Some weeks later, emaciated and near death, he was admitted to the local hospital, where doctors were unable to find a cause for his symptoms or slow his decline. Only then did his wife tell one of the doctors, Drayton Doherty, of the hex.

Senator Opposes HIV Testing for Pregnant Women

RTB: The media reports on a controversy in HIV testing – but it’s a false controversy, that does highlight the reactive – but uncritical – stance of AIDS activists against homophobia.

The reporter and editors imagine they’re reporting on an issue of religious intolerance and sexual bigotry; the editorial position is in favor of testing and drugging mother and infant, and they use the problem of homophobia to create support for the AIDS paradigm. “Pro-AIDS” becomes a de facto “Pro-Gay” position.

What would happen if they asked the question: What do HIV tests actually test for? What do they actually diagnose? And what burden are we placing on individuals who “test positive” on a poly-reactive test? What are the consequences of AZT and Nevirapine in Utero?

These questions are ignored and actively suppressed by the mainstream media, and in Senate discussion.

DENVER—The Senate backed a bill promoting HIV testing for pregnant women Wednesday over the objection of a lone senator who said the state shouldn’t protect people from the consequences of their “unacceptable behavior.” Continue reading Senator Opposes HIV Testing for Pregnant Women
