Logical Consequences

March 31, 2015 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

It will certainly come as no surprise to you that Indiana has had an “unexpected” outbreak of HIV.

Scott County, Indiana, the center of an exploding HIV outbreak, has been without an HIV testing center since early 2013, when the sole provider — a Planned Parenthood clinic — was forced to close its doors. The clinic did not offer abortion services.

The Scott County clinic and four other Planned Parenthood facilities in the state, all of which provided HIV testing and information, have shuttered since 2011, in large part due to funding cuts to the state’s public health infrastructure.

Appropriately enough, Mike Pence pushed legislation while he was in congress to defund Planned Parenthood.

Now where are those death panels Republicans were always talking about?

  1. In the ongoing list of “100 Things I’d Do If I Ever Became An Evil Overlord” is number 12, to wit: “One of my advisors will be an average five-year-old child. Any flaws in my plan that he is able to spot will be corrected before implementation.” Seems to me some of the evil legislative overlords might need to tattoo that one to the top of their non-dominant hand, just to help them remember.

  2. Well, it’s probably just queers and sluts getting HIV, and no real Republican cares about them, right? Much more important to take a moral stand against whatever it was.

    I can only draw hope from a poll which showed significantly more GOP voters thought it was important for their candidate to take the right [far right] positions than thought it was important that the SOB get elected.

    Like I said,the trouble wingnuts get is only what they deserve. And they deserve every bit of it. If there is a god,I’m guessing she is sharpening her filet knives to wound some wingnut souls on their fall from grace. Burn in HELL fauxknee kristians!

    Micr, spare the children and save the ink. Tattoo “st00pid” on both paws as a reminder for thinking things through to the logical consequences.

    Unintended consequences … what happens when religious bigots attempt to insert their version of “small government” into areas it doesn’t belong.

    HIV doesn’t scare me. But the many other diseases which are communicable, do. So hell yes, promote clean needle exchanges before Indiana adds to the outbreaks of hepatitis and diseases that cannot be as easily avoided as HIV with normal risk avoidance.

    Rhea, the largest growing population of HIV infected are the seniors in Floriduh. Apparently randy old seniors on Viagra need some STD education before doc writes their scrip.

    I am feeling a little mean today, but the people in this country either didn’t vote, or voted for the conservative because, you know Jesus or something. Karma.

  7. So now there is a bomb-burst of HIV which is making that area famous or infamous, which ever way you look at it. Frankly, what is happening now is another definition of karma. The locals might be able to hold their noses high enough in the air not to see it, but CDC is going to be getting on their case and it will all end up on the six o’clock news with film at eleven. Just what your locality doesn’t need as it tries to attract business and tourists, let alone families seeking a new home.

  8. e platypus onion says:

    Pence and wingnuts will force these HIV patients to be personally responsible for the mistakes Pence and wingnuts visit upon others.

    Yes, there are consequences for stupidity and this definitely is a great example. Close clinics for those who need it most and various illnesses will explode due to lack of care and meds. Of course, these are not good xtian people or they wouldn’t be getting this evil homo disease, eh?

    May these unloving xtian people enjoy eternity in hell!

    Apparently Republican’ts don’t get “consequences”, either that elections have consequences or closing health clinics has deadly consequences, or that not-negotiating with Iran over their nuclear program has the deadliest consequences of all. What does it take to get Democrats and independents out to vote these obstinate dinosaurs out of office?

  11. Hippie Cowboy says:

    Burn down the barn to get rid of the rats…that’s the Repugnant way. Pay it backward, Repugs…pay it backward! You WILL pay…guaranteed!

  12. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    1smartcanerican, “evil homo disease” is so Reagan era. If not for Reagan, an easily contained outbreak would not have become an epidemic. Leave it to Pence and other good Xtians to spread STDs, too.

    Syphilis, once curable by penicillin, still with us with no thanks to ‘conservatives.’ And, the nearly once eradicated childhood diseases brought back with the ‘help’ of the anti-science crowd.

    Eh, but take that evil sex education out of our classrooms and close down those clinics, because the BuyBull tells them so.

    Let them have their hell here on earth – quarantine the st00pid to Loopy Louie’s district and flood their River of Denial with fracking water.

  13. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    maryelle, my wife and I voted in 2014, so we can’t speak for all millennials. But …. maybe miniature token pitchforks for every vote cast with a warning to the elected: the next fork won’t be symbolic.

  14. Mississippi is very happy with Indiana as now there is some state more of a bigoted bunch of aholes taking the heat.

  15. HIV is only half of the story. Gov Pence doesn’t believe in needle exchanges, Indiana now has a big outbreak of Hepatitis C. The cost of a clean needle & syringe is less than a dime but the good Gov has chosen to be penny wise & dollar foolish because one way or another the state will be picking up the costs. O freedom.

    And now you know why Kentucky reveres the Ohio River.

    “Scott County” you say! I had some time ago realized that just about any politician with “Scott” in his name was a troll. Now there is a whole country of it.
