Georgia state rep wants to quarantine people with HIV

The lawmaker wife of former Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price asked this week whether the government could quarantine people with HIV to limit transmission of the virus that causes AIDS.

From the article:

"I don’t want to say the quarantine word, but I guess I just said it,” Price said during the meeting, which was videotaped.

"Is there an ability, since I would guess that public dollars are expended heavily in prophylaxis and treatment of this condition," she said. "So we have a public interest in curtailing the spread. What would you advise, or are there any methods legally that we could do, that would curtail the spread?”

Gee, maybe we could put more effort into educating people who are at a higher risk of contracting HIV? More effort into providing condoms, clean needles, or whatever it takes to change the practices that are leading to transmission of the virus? I don't know what is causing Georgia to have the 5th highest rate of new cases of HIV, but wouldn't finding out why the rate of transmission is high be a good first step to changing things? 

Or maybe we could just start quarantining stupid politicians?

I think we need a Bonnie and Clyde award with this administration. This arrogant woman and her private-jettin' husband would definitely be nominated. Also Jared and Ivanka.

This woman has an MD after her name and used to be a practicing Anesthesiologist. It boggles the mind that this idiocy could possibly come out of the mouth of someone with that background.

My sister lives in Georgia and quite some time ago had told that this woman is f***ing crazy.

Her line of "thinking" was debunked decades ago.

I missed you, too, @iweartanktops! Glad to see you back! :romance-heartsmiley:

If we quarantine stupid politicians, maybe we could let them out if they can pass a logic and/or empathy test? There might be one or two redeemable ones. I'd hate to leave anyone redeemable in with 45. :mouse-shock:

      My niece is going to be a seat filler at this year's Academy Awards.  Seat fillers are asked to wear tuxedos regardless of sex/gender.  If you see a pretty young woman with very curly hair, it could be my niece.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
