What Is the Centers for Disease Control?

10.23.10 – Donna Garner – We taxpayers pay for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and part of the job of this government agency is to collect infectious disease data from across the country.

Since January 2005, thirty-seven states have had laws that require them to report HIV infections through confidential, name-based mechanisms.


It is no secret; the medical data is clear.  Male-to-male sex is what is spreading HIV/AIDS, and to me the following is one of the most worrisome statistics: 

From 2005-2008…Most (74%) diagnoses of HIV infection in adults and adolescents were in males. Among males diagnosed with HIV infection from 2005-2008, 70% were attributed to male-to-male sexual contact. The percentage of diagnosed HIV infections attributed to male-to-male sexual contact was even larger (85%) among males aged 13 to 24 years.”

This indicates that the homosexual agenda is making inroads with the young and vulnerable males in our society. 

I believe this has come through the constant drumbeat of homosexual characters on TV, the movies, and in the school anti-bullying curriculum that is permeating students’ classrooms under the auspices of Obama’s Kevin Jennings, the Safe Schools Czar at the U. S. Department of Education.  

Kevin Jennings is openly homosexual and is the founder of Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN).  This is the organization that led students during the school day in Massachusetts to learn about “fisting.”  

We adults who should be countering the indoctrination by the homosexual community of our young people have been intimidated into silence by political correctness/social justice.

Why not put the CDC’s medical data out there and make sure that our young people know how very dangerous homosexual activities really are?  

No empirical research exists to show that homosexuality is inherent (inborn); therefore, young people do have a choice.   

We also know that Exodus International and other organizations have proven that people involved in homosexual activities can change their lifestyles.

However, when children are told at a young age that they have a proclivity to be homosexual and that “it is perfectly normal,” many of them become entrapped with the homosexual lifestyle and do not know how to get out of it.

They end up being dragged deeper into perversion and the very harmful medical conditions that follow, sometimes ending in early death.  

To find out for yourself what the CDC’s medical data shows, please follow these directions:


Please click on the following site (http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/topics/surveillance/resources/slides/msm/index.htm ). 


Then notice where it says, “Download the complete slide set.”  I chose “18 Slides in Adobe PDF Format.”  Then just scroll down the slide set, making sure that you read what is in the Presentation Notes at the bottom, right side of each slide.


These slides cover HIV Surveillance in Men Who Have Sex with Men (MSM) and have been updated with information from the “2008 HIV Surveillance Report: Diagnoses of HIV Infection and AIDS in the United States and Dependent Areas.”



From 2005-2008, an estimated total of 161,795 adults and adolescents were diagnosed with HIV infection in the 37 states and 5 U.S. dependent areas with confidential name-based HIV infection reporting since at least January 2005. 


Most (74%) diagnoses of HIV infection in adults and adolescents were in males.


Among males diagnosed with HIV infection from 2005-2008, 70% were attributed to male-to-male sexual contact.


The percentage of diagnosed HIV infections attributed to male-to-male sexual contact was even larger (85%) among males aged 13 to 24 years.


During 2008, male-to-male sexual contact was the most frequently reported transmission category—accounting for 54% of all diagnoses of HIV infection that year.


The following 37 states have had laws or regulations requiring confidential name-based HIV infection reporting since at least January 2005: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. The 5 U.S. dependent areas include American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Data include persons with a diagnosis of HIV infection regardless of stage of disease at diagnosis. All displayed data have been estimated.  Estimated numbers resulted from statistical adjustment that accounted for reporting delays and missing risk-factor information, but not for incomplete reporting.


Data on male-to-male sexual contact exclude men who reported sexual contact with other men and injection drug use.



In 2008, an estimated 72% (22,810) of all diagnosed HIV infections among adult and adolescent males were attributed to male-to-male sexual contact.


Heterosexual contact was the second largest transmission category among males, at nearly 15% of diagnosed HIV infections… 


Heterosexual contact is with a person known to have or to be at high risk for HIV infection.


[Notice this statistic:  HIV -- 72 % of 2008 cases caused by MSM activities; 15 % from heterosexual contacts]




[10.22.10 -- This CDC medical data should also be the basis for decisions on “don’t ask, don’t tell” in the military. -- Donna Garner]



Facts for the Day — 9.30.10


HIV is an “equal opportunity provider.”


HIV is not politically correct. 


The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) just released today (9.30.10) a report on HIV infections from January 2005 through 2008. 


The report is called “Epidemiology of HIV Infection” and can be found at the following link:





Through numerous slides, this report graphically shows that HIV is being spread by:


72 % — male-to-male (MSM) sexual contact

9 %  – injection drug use  

4 %  – male-to-male sexual contact and injection drug use

Conclusion:  85 % of all HIV cases among young adults and adolescents were caused by homosexual activities and/or drug use. 


These are all preventable activities.


HIV increased among MSM from 50 % in 2005 to 54 % in 2008.  The more the homosexual agenda is being pushed in the U. S. culture, the higher the rates of HIV are climbing.


The slides clearly show that the biggest percentage of HIV cases is occurring among Black/African-Americans.  


This CDC information was gathered from only 37 states (those that had laws or regulations requiring confidential name-based HIV infection reporting since at least January 2005).


However, here is the alarming news:  The following states are not included in the CDC’s data. 


If these states (many of which are considered to be havens for homosexuals because of local and state laws) had been included in the CDC data, just think how much higher the national HIV/MSM/Injected Drug Use numbers and percentages would have been!



District of Columbia









Rhode Island




It is the CDC’s latest figures that led to the 9.23.10 Reuters report saying that 1 in 5 gay, bisexual men in US cities has HIV; and it is these figures that led me on 8.31.10 to write an open letter to Glenn Beck, Kenneth Mehlman, Ed Gillespie, Ann Coulter, Michael Steele, Dick Cheney, Lou Dobbs, almost all Democrats, and others who have indicated that they do not think we should care what people do in the privacy of their bedrooms:


I believe it is actually everybody’s business what homosexuals and/or drug users choose to do in the privacy of their bedrooms because we taxpayers get left paying for their STD’s and drug treatments.  Sixty-five per cent of all HIV cases are from people who are homosexuals and/or drug users. (Source: Centers for Disease Control)


Also, those STD’s can and do get transmitted to other innocent people such as wives.  I have two long-time friends whose husbands were involved in bisexual relationships.  Both of these faithful wives have been left FOR LIFE with STD’s that they got from their husbands. Both of them had no idea that their husbands were bisexual and were involved in perverse relationships.  Both of these women have had to have serious surgeries within this last year because of the STD’s that were transmitted to them by their bisexual husbands. 


I have not even mentioned other STD’s besides HIV/AIDS such as viral hepatitis.  In 2006,  nearly 1 in 10 men diagnosed with hepatitis A reported engaging in homosexual behavior.


Other STD’s that are transmitted throughout the gay population are urethral Chlamydia and gonorrhea. 


In one year, the rate of fluoroquinolone-resistant gonorrhea increased from 29% to 39% among men who have sex with men (MSM).


The number of new syphilis cases, driven by gay and bisexual men, has doubled in recent years in such places as Los Angeles County and San Francisco.  Men who have sex with men (MSM) accounted for approximately 64% of the reported cases of P&S syphilis in the United States during 2006.  (Source: Centers for Disease Control)


I also have not mentioned the prevalence of tuberculosis that is spread among homosexuals who have HIV/AIDS.  They contract TB and other diseases because their immune system has been compromised by the HIV/AIDS.  


TB and many other diseases are contagious, and we in the general population are put at risk by what homosexuals and/or drug users do in the privacy of their bedrooms.


Now the homosexual movement is pressuring the Red Cross to change their blood collection policies because gay men have been banned from giving blood since 1985.  The gays say this is “discriminatory.” If the gays win their “social justice” argument and are allowed to pollute our blood supply with their STD’s, then the chances of an innocent person contracting an STD “for life” from a homosexual will be greatly increased.


Also, there is the matter of cost.  Please be sure to study this link

( http://fairfoundation.org/update.htm ) where it shows how much per patient we taxpayers spend on HIV compared to other conditions such as cardiovascular conditions and cancer.


What is occurring is that because of the strong political support for the gay agenda, huge amounts of money are being spent by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) on HIV/AIDS that should be going toward helping to alleviate other conditions/diseases that people develop NOT based upon their sexual choices.  


In fact, it is not a stretch to say that we might have had more breakthroughs on solving cancer, heart, diabetes, prostate, and Alzheimer’s if the NIH had not spent so much time and money on HIV/AIDS research. 


Yes, it actually does matter to the rest of us whatever people do in the privacy of their bedrooms.
