December one is National AIDS day!!! Do you know your HIV Status?

The historical AIDS QUILT started in 1985 with only one panel; 94,000 names and 25 years later, names continue to be added to
what is now known as the “AIDS QUILT.”

Who knew all those years ago that you could be diagnosed with HIV, yet live a long and meaningful life with early detection and adhering to the proper drug regime.

Magic Johnson is one such example. While you might say that Magic Johnson is the exception because he can afford to get the best care that money can afford, Johnson is not the exception and due to the advances of research, he is the rule.

Freda Jones, HIV positive since 2002; Robby Astrove, HIV positive since 1978 at the age of 15; Pat Linn, HIV positive since 1999 are all still living and doing well, despite living with HIV.

“If you’re engaged in sexual activity or plan to be engaged in an intimate way with your partner, then it’s imperative that you and your partner discuss not only “AIDS but other sexually transmitted diseases that can change your life forever.

If you don’t use the proper protection and open up to each other, through dialogue and be painfully honest with your prospective partner about your history and your present status, you set yourself up as a possible host to other sexually transmitted diseases, in addition to HIV and subsequently AIDS.

Nobel Peace Prize Winner for discovering HIV, Dr. Francoise Barre-Sinouss, Pasteur Institute-President Elect International Aids Society and Dr. Steven Deeks, AIDS Research Institute, collaborate annually with the top scientist from around the world in hope of finding a cure for AIDS.

Much have been done since the early days of detection and the almost certain death that resulted from a positive diagnosis, but much is still needed. People are still being infected and diagnosed with HIV daily and many more are unfortunately, infecting others because they are “HIV Positive” and don’t know it.

While the doctors are doing their part in consistently researching and coming up with different cocktails to prolong life, each person needs to be an “Ambassador to the AIDS Cause” and make a concerted effort to encourage all their family, friends and even their enemies to get tested and use the proper precautions in an effort to eradicate this dreadful and deadly disease known as AIDS.

“Get tested and have your partner tested and use protection all the time, period!”

Holiday’s is fast Approaching: Do you know Your Credit Score?


There is nothing more embarrassing than getting your holiday shopping groove on and as you finally make it to the cashier, he or she gives you their regular holiday pitch:

”We will give you a 30% discount if you open up a card with us today!”

And naturally, you’re in good spirits, so without hesitation, you give them your name and pertinent numbers, the cashier is hurriedly processing your new card, when the dreaded word “DECLINE” pops up on their screen, and for a moment the cashier is thinking, “How do I tell them the offer was rescinded based on their credit score and the embarrassment from both the cashier having to tell you that the offer was declined and the sheer humiliation from hearing the word “DECLINE.” What a holiday downer that would be.

Be Smart . . .Before you Start . . . Shopping! That is! Be in the know and check your score . . . Before you Go!

Oh! By the way…..Happy and Safe Holiday Shopping to You!!!

Gov. Rick Scott turned down Billions in Federal Aid: Now the Feds turned down Gov. Rick Scott.

Governor Rick Scott insisted that he would not take any of Washington’s tainted money. Some would say that its poetic justice, if it were not for all the constituents that are caught in the cross hairs. In politics they call it “collateral damage” or as Mitt Romney would call it “creative destruction.”

Remember the latest feel good phrase: “We want less government in our lives!” Well my friend, this is an example of less government and the scary part is that an entire state suffers because of the misguided allegiance to a party, rather than the people that elected now Governor Rick Scott.

Gov. Rick Scott did not hesitate to tell all that would listen, that he would reject any monies [$2 Billion to be exact] coming from Washington, regardless if it were needed [to build a high-speed rail line] or not and proceeded to do just that!

Gov. Scott proclaimed that he didn’t want Washington’s money and quickly took to the airways to let all his constituents know that he was standing firm in his belief, even though a rail system is desperately needed in Florida. There were many that cheered him on, “That’s right! We want less government in our lives!” Now, hold that thought…

Gov. Rick Scott also championed the cause to stop President Obama’s Federal Healthcare, which was subsequently approved by the Supreme Court, in part. Without consideration for the thousands of constituents that were currently without healthcare and no means to pay for private insurance. “That’s right! We want less government in our lives!” Now, hold that thought…

Gov. Rick Scott has also battled Washington by imposing new voting rules and thus throwing Florida in the spot light once again as the state that will more than likely create havoc before the election is over.

After all the disdain that Gov. Rick Scott has shown to Washington and the Federal Government, he suddenly has a change of heart [because Florida has suffered at the hands of hurricane Isaac] and decides that maybe having some of that “Federal Government Money” is not so bad after all. What happened to “We want less government in our lives?” Now, hold that thought…

So, what happens next! Gov. Scott proceeds to summons his aide to request funds from both FEMA and the White House. Did I read that right? FEMA, which is government and the White House, which is government has a request from Gov. Scott to help the State of Florida? That’s right! But wait a minute! I thought Gov. Scott and his constituents agreed to…No! Demand less government. Remember, “We want less government in our lives!” Now hold that thought…

FEMA and the White House apparently finally got the message that Gov. Rick Scott is serious about not taking money from the Federal Government and to help him stay true to his word, denied his request for Federal Aid and after all, “how would he be able to look his constituents in the eye after taking such a stance on “no government money will pass state line.” Now hold that thought…

You better wake up!!! Now hold that thought…

As Always….. Don’t Be Alarmed . . . Be Informed . . .

Mitt Romney: Independent Thinker or Opening Act for President Obama

Mitt Romney is excellent at giving negative feedback on remarks made by President Obama. He appears sharp, quick wit and even displays a sense of humor but when you corner Romney on specifics, the room is suddenly silent.

Why it is that Mitt Romney can energize an auditorium of people and have them clapping and cheering him on, yet five minutes after the party is over, they can’t tell you one specific problem that Romney addressed. Why, maybe because, Mitt Romney is a good “cheerleader” but not a “leader.”

A good cheerleader or opening act can work a crowd and get them emotionally charged for the main event. Once the main performer hits the stage, the cheerleaders’ job is done. While it is entertaining for someone to come and work the crowd, it is the featured speaker or the main attraction that really drew the crowd.

As I’ve watch Mitt Romney take the podium from state to state, I can’t help but feel that he is a “feel good speaker” but lack substance. So, Governor Mitt Romney, I’m calling you out!

The voters want to hear from you, personally, not your comments on something President Obama said or didn’t say!

Romney is good at answering questions in generalities and that was acceptable in the beginning, but at this stage in the race for the White House, it’s time for the registered voters to hear his mission statement and how he plans to accomplish his mission in succinct detail.

Some of the questions I’m sure that the voters want answered are:

1. What are your plans to turn this economy around? “Don’t give generalities, just facts!” Answer without including President Obama’s name.

2. What are your plans in respect to Healthcare? “Don’t give generalities, just facts!” Answer without including President Obama’s name.

3. What are your plans concerning banks and their inability to work with struggling homeowners, while taking millions and in some cases billions of dollars from the government? “Don’t give generalities, just facts!” Answer without including President Obama’s name.

4. What are your plans concerning social programs such as: Medicaid & Medicare, Social Security and others? “Don’t give generalities, just facts!” Answer without including President Obama’s name.

5. What are your plans concerning the military and their families? “Don’t give generalities, just facts!” Answer without including President Obama’s name.

6. What are your plans to stimulate job growth? “Don’t give generalities, just facts!” Answer without including President Obama’s name.

7. What are your plans concerning immigration? “Don’t give generalities, just facts!” Answer without including President Obama’s name.

8. What are your plans concerning student loans? “Don’t give generalities, just facts!” Answer without including President Obama’s name.

9. What are your plans to show that you can and will represent the 47% of people, whom you feel pays no federal taxes? “Don’t give generalities, just facts!” Answer without including President Obama’s name.

10. In one sentence, what would you say to the voters to convince them that you are the right man for the highest position in the land? “Don’t give generalities, just facts!” Answer without including President Obama’s name.

Mitt Romney: Courting the Hispanics . . . I Need You to Vote that “Government Stay Out of Your Life!”

Yes, Mitt Romney needs the Hispanic vote to seal the deal and become President! But, what about the day after, it’s called “voters remorse.” Obviously, the day after is one day to late.

Let’s take a moment to look at the day after. Mitt Romney is now president and you’re still the working poor. Will you still be part of his grand plan? I think not! Why? Now, you’re what he considers “those people,” a means to an end. Don’t blame Romney! He told you from the beginning what he was going to do.

Remember! Romney did say that “these are people who pay no income tax, but they are people “who are dependent upon government, [what is Romney saying? Don’t depend on me because I’m at the top of the spectrum in terms of government and remember! You voted for less government.] Who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to healthcare, to food, to housing, to you -name it.”

There should be big paper shredders at all the voting precincts for the people who will be voting for Mitt Romney and “

    they should be required to shred their food stamp cards, welfare cards, Medicaid and Medicare cards, their Social Security Cards, Disability Cards, School Vouchers and any other thing that they have on their person that connect them to the government, before they vote; to demonstrate a vote of confidence that they do indeed want the government out of their lives.”

Don’t forget to give them their “I want government out of my life sticker” along with their “I voted today sticker.” The Elections Department should have an additional form for the voters to sign stipulating that “they want government out of their lives!” to create a database of “no more government voters,” so when they show up at various governmental agencies [hospitals included] the entity can respectfully deny them service. Remember! “No More Government for you!”

If you feel that your life will be better off without any type of government assistance, regardless of the circumstance, then Mitt Romney is indeed the man for you and I guarantee you, Mitt Romney will be more than happy to give you the desires of your heart!

When Mitt Romney Came to Town: The Suffering Began

With so many employees losing their jobs along the way and Mitt Romney making such a shameless explanation that eliminating jobs were called “creative destruction” and then proceeds to laugh about the hardships of the working poor is inhumane.

Mitt Romney Economics:Jobs loss and Bankruptcy at Ampad

Is this the real reason Mitt Romney won’t reveal his plan to move the country forward, because he is going to give you a pink slip the day after election, should he become president and tell you to re-apply, at a lesser wage and forget about reduce benefits, no benefits.
