I couldn't help but notice that Obama recently appointed a new head for the White House AIDS Policy Office.
I assume that this is a paid position, so I'm left wondering why, in these hard times (in any times, really), we should pay for such a thing.
Seriously, AIDS policy shouldn't cost a dime and shouldn't require an office or officers.
I would be glad to donate the following policy to the president, to be used in lieu of having to waste resources.
First, here's the position: AIDS is bad, as is the HIV that causes AIDS.
Now here's the policy: Every so often, mention in speeches that people should avoid unprotected sex with strangers and/or sharing hypodermic needles.
Here's what's awesome: if the people listen, then the number of new AIDS cases will decrease dramatically!
But what if people don't listen?
Then it's their own freaking fault!
