  1. Federal government pushes pills on future AIDS patients

    Uncle Sam picks pills over responsibility in AIDS fight

    Believe me when I tell you America's moral compass is so hopelessly broken, it's spinning like a top, my friend.

    Values are disappearing so quickly in our country that they're fast becoming the punchline of a bad joke. And the new world we're creating ought to scare the heck out of you.

    If you want proof, check out the shameless announcement by Big Pharma and our drug-loving government endorsing a new pill designed to keep high-risk folks from contracting AIDS.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has just announced appalling new guidelines recommending regular doses of Truvada for folks who practice promiscuity, inject illegal drugs, or regularly engage in unprotected sex with HIV-positive partners.

    The drug, manufactured by Gilead -- you know, those same saints who were caught testing AIDS drugs on African prostitutes -- allegedly can keep you from catching AIDS no matter how much damage you try to do to yourself.

    Well, fire up the band, toss those condoms in the trash, and start cooking up the heroin. This is the best thing to happen to junkies since crackpot city politicians started handing out free needles. It's a wonder pill that actually ENCOURAGES morally degenerate behavior! (And good luck with getting THAT group to be responsible enough to pop a daily pill.)

    Let me tell you something that the AIDS activist red-ribbon brigade is too politically correct to admit. Nobody in the world EVER has to catch AIDS. Right now, somewhere in America, legions of brainwashed folks are marching to help cure drug addicts, men who slept with hookers and other morally questionable figures who are fighting a disease they gave themselves.

    And you can forget the blood transfusion copout -- even our government admits that your chance of catching AIDS from a transfusion is one out of 1.5 million.

    We don't need a magic pill to avoid catching AIDS. We need a return to basic human morals like avoiding drugs and practicing safe sex -- or dare I even suggest monogamy. The CDC claims drugs like Truvada could eliminate up to 90% of AIDS cases, but the fact is we have the power to eradicate darned near 100% of AIDS cases, beginning today. And it all starts with instilling some simple morals in our population.

    When our founding fathers fought for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, they weren't giving us a license to do whatever the hell we wanted -- and it's time today's government bureaucrats started remembering that.

    Because the REAL cure for AIDS can't be patented, and you'll never see it roll out of some Big Pharma factory.

    It's responsibility, plain and simple. And a daily dose of that will do a heck of a lot more for you -- and for this nation -- than anything the drug companies are cooking up.

  2. Energy drinks linked to teen depression, drug use

    Blame now comes in a can

    They're canning your vegetables... they're canning your meat... and now a group of university scientists have successfully canned a product lousy parents will be buying by the ton.

    Blame.

    That's right. Next time you have no idea whether your kid did his homework or who he's hanging out with online at 3 a.m., just remember it's not your fault. There's a can sitting in your fridge just ITCHING to take the blame.

    A new University of Waterloo study looked at kids who drink alcohol, smoke pot, and generally run around like the teenage version of a motorcycle gang.

    I know what you're thinking -- who's raising these kids anyway? Apparently Red Bull. Because once researchers discovered that these juvenile delinquents were also downing sugary energy drinks by the barrel, they had their villain.

    Just keep those caffeinated cans away from kids, they urged, and you'll see drug abuse and depression plummet like a bird with two bad wings. And that recommendation reminded me of something else that comes in cans.

    Nuts.

    Who are we kidding here? If your kid has a joint in one hand and a bottle of Jack in the other, don't blame energy drinks -- BLAME YOURSELF! There's a time-tested plan for getting unruly kids under control -- it's made of leather, has holes, and you fasten it around your waist.

    But parents today can't bother to discipline their kids, and nanny-state scientists keep looking for creative ways to regulate and legislate us out of this bad parenting epidemic.

    Well, the next time your kid breaks curfew or decides to give himself a lip piercing, stop looking in the fridge and start looking in the mirror. Then give him what he REALLY needs.

    A kick in the can.
