The Agenda

Whether it interests you or not, everyone should go to , click on agenda, and explore what Obama's agenda is on several issues. Some of it on the scary side, so don't think it is bedtime reading. Seriously, some of it is scary.

One statement is made that has Dad and I scratching our heads, if someone has a good explanation, I'd love to hear it - statement in question in bold print:

"Promote AIDS Prevention: In the first year of his presidency, President Obama will develop and begin to implement a comprehensive national HIV/AIDS strategy that includes all federal agencies. The strategy will be designed to reduce HIV infections, increase access to care and reduce HIV-related health disparities. The President will support common sense approaches including age-appropriate sex education that includes information about contraception, combating infection within our prison population through education and contraception, and distributing contraceptives through our public health system. The President also supports lifting the federal ban on needle exchange, which could dramatically reduce rates of infection among drug users. President Obama has also been willing to confront the stigma -- too often tied to homophobia -- that continues to surround HIV/AIDS."

Anyway, go to the site and be educated. It is something we all need.

It really is terrifying, especially if you read between the lines.
