US Still Setting Records:Now It's Sexually Transmitted Diseases ...



If you ask us, this sort of stuff stinks.



U.S. sets record in sexual disease cases
Surprised?
ATLANTA - More than 1 million cases of chlamydia were reported in the United States last year — the most ever reported for a sexually transmitted disease, federal health officials said Tuesday. "A new U.S. record," said Dr. John M. Douglas Jr. of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Shocked?

Sit tight. You ain't seen nothin' yet.
More bad news: Gonorrhea rates are jumping again after hitting a record low, and an increasing number of cases are caused by a "superbug" version resistant to common antibiotics, federal officials said Tuesday.

Syphilis is rising, too. The rate of congenital syphilis — which can deform or kill babies — rose for the first time in 15 years.
Sickened?

So, see some more of this remarkably revealing report.

And several million stupid sods stateside still insist on spouting that universal health care systems suck?

As of course does their pathetic (p)resident and his mangy, mega-malfunctioning maladministration.

Oy, vey! Love a duck!

The mind bloody boggles.

Help!

Is there a brain surgeon in the building reading the blog?

No wonder. Without freely available health education programmes and readily available treatments~medications what else does anyone expect?

How long before the wingnuts start blaming progressive, liberal, Dem, Muslim terrorists?

Not long. Just you wait and see.

I bet the Russians, Cubans, Chinese, Iraqis, Iranians and al-Quaida played especially big parts in this 'attack' on good ole American 'values' too. Huh. Ya think?

I can see now why so many of 'em want guns. Can't you just hear it now?

Get off me and put you pants on right now, or else.

I'll drink to that, Peter England. Every cloud has a silver lining y'know.

Looks like the US is spreading a lot more than freedom and democracy, doesn't it?

Perhaps 'cursing' actually works. For a long time now, where ever one goes or reads people all over the world have been saying things like "A plague on their house," "A pox on them," "F**k them and their ilk" ~~ not mention the horses they rode in on.

It seems it's all going exactly according to the age old Empire script.

First the rise. Second the corruption. Third the decadence. Then the fall.

I think that in this instance though, the USA has managed to fast track the whole inevitable process.

Michael Mouse, when you said the following you forgot one thing the neocon nutters always blame for all their troubles ... Clinton's dick.

"How long before the wingnuts start blaming progressive, liberal, Dem, Muslim terrorists?

(Maybe someone should ask Hilary ... after all, she should have a better idea than most of us).

So much for the effectiveness of Bush & Co's faith-based 'abstinence policies'. THIS from 2004.
