• California Goes To New Level Of Crazy – Governor Says It’s OK To Spread HIV Via Sex or Transfusion

    California Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill last Friday that basically allows a person with HIV to knowingly spread the disease to sexual partners or through blood transfusions with little repercussions.

    It used to be a felony to spread HIV on purpose to a sexual partner. Not anymore.

    According to the LA Times:

    Modern medicine allows those with HIV to live longer lives and nearly eliminates the possibility of transmission, according to state Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) and Assemblyman Todd Gloria (D-San Diego), authors of the bill.

    Basically, California is saying that because medicine and treatment have improved the fatal disease is generally manageable, so it’s fine to secretly spread it to un-knowing sexual partners.

    How does something this crazy actually reach a Governor’s desk? It begs the question…who’s running the asylum? California has long been a bastion full of liberal nuts, but this takes crazy to a whole new level.

    As if that wasn’t enough, this measure also eliminates the felony charge if you do not disclose you’re HIV positive when giving blood.

    The measure also applies to those who give blood without telling the blood bank that they are HIV-positive.

    Liberals seriously think this is somehow a good thing. You could have a car wreck or an illness and get HIV from a blood transfusion and California is fine with that.

    They actually believe that by removing the punishment for giving someone a lifelong disease they will somehow eliminate the disease.

    “We are going to end new HIV infections, and we will do so not by threatening people with state prison time, but rather by getting people to test and providing them access to care,” Wiener said.

    The few Republicans remaining in California spoke out against the measure arguing that increased penalties would be the only way to curb the transmission of this horrible disease.

    Republican lawmakers including Sen. Joel Anderson of Alpine voted against the bill, arguing it puts the public at risk.

    “I’m of the mind that if you purposefully inflict another with a disease that alters their lifestyle the rest of their life, puts them on a regimen of medications to maintain any kind of normalcy, it should be a felony,” Anderson said during the floor debate. “It’s absolutely crazy to me that we should go light on this.”

    That sounds like common sense, a rare thing in California. If you are a California resident waiting for the last straw before you decide to move out…this could be it!

    Get a realtor…bye California. It’s simply not safe to live there.
