Bugs R Us: imported STDs

Obama had already removed HIV from the list of 8 communicable diseases that could impede immigration. Three more STDs which are now  on the welcome mat are:
-granuloma inguinale, (donovanosis) which is caused by Klebsiella granulomatis, an infection which locally destroys tissue as it spreads.
-lymphogranuloma venerium (Climatic bubo) caused by serotypes L1, L2, L2a or L3 of Chlamydia trachomatis. One end result of this disease is genital elephantiasis.
-Chancroid, (soft chancre) caused by Hemophilus ducreyi, which can cause swelling and rupture of inguinal lymph nodes. Only this latter one is monitored by the CDC.

The above three sexually transmitted infections have been fairly rare in the U.S. but are expected to rise precipitously in frequency due to Obama’s welcome mat.

Bugs R Us: STD edition

Bummer.  Another Drug Shortage.  This time Bicillin L-A, the top drug used to inject sufferers of syphilis who come into the ER, is in shortage.   It’s  particularly important for pregnant ladies infected with the little corkscrew Treponema pallidum, as babies being born with the bug is the absolute WORST. Yes, it seems amazing that benzathine penicillin still works on syphilis after all of these years, and wouldn’t it figure that somehow Pfizer can’t make enough to meet demand.  A ‘manufacturing delay’ is cited.

How about that Zika virus??  Now it is claimed that it can be a sexually transmitted disease, passed by just about any kind of sex.

Listen up.  HIV isn’t impressive enough to chill people down just a little bit with with their risk taking behavior. Do you think they’ll care about Zika virus?  Naaaaah.  No one is going to give up SEX for that, however there is one bicyclist Teejay Van Garderen, who has decided to stay home from the summer Olympics in  Brazil this summer because his wife is pregnant, and he doesn’t want to risk transmission.

At LA Times, They Wonder What Causes the Increase in STDs

On the left coast, it’s a mystery……. how are more people getting STDs?  Apparently the City of Angels  is now crawling.  Reporter Soumya Karlamangla, of the Los Angeles Times  is thinking that the dating apps, so effective for arranging quickies, might have something to do with it.

It’s easy.  More people will do it with anyone, anywhere, particularly in whacky Los Angeles.  STD testing kits are touted as a means to prevent the spread, but it’s one thing to get your home test for “buggs”, and another thing to obtain effective treatment.   Either venture, the purchase of the test, and seeking the treatment, has both cost and stigma attached, and it has long been noted  that those testing positive may not return for the cure.  Additionally many of the STDs  are never cured, and often last much longer than  marriages.

Consider the possibility that mutual STD tests might become a part of foreplay for a new couple, who  want to make sure that they have matching infections.  The medically literate sometimes like to use the euphemism “STI” instead, since sexually transmitted INFECTION somehow seems gentler to them than sexually transmitted DISEASE.

Pondering the accelerating spread of STDs,  it’s sort of understandable  that  so many of the Japanese simply don’t want to bother with sex anymore.  That society is  literally starting to check out of life.

Hey!  How about sticking with one partner?

Viral TSA Blogger Unmasks (Capitalist System at Work)

The man behind the Taking Sense Away, TSA blog on WordPress decided to reveal himself to the world, publishing yesterday in the Politico.

Jason Edward Harrington is working on a novel based upon his experiences as a TSA employee (paid to grope passengers at airports).  Hopefully the remaining, capitalist vestige of the economic system will reward his efforts.  Up to this time he’s been exposing the antics and inside stories of the TSA anonymously, first as an employee, working through college, then from the outside while in graduate school.

A portion of what news stories have carried about the workings of the TSA has come from Harrington’s blog.  Be sure to take a look, if you haven’t seen it already.  The January 30 entry will lead you to his piece at the Politico, entitled: Dear America, I Saw You Naked, and yes we were laughing.  Confessions of an ex-TSA agent.

Indianapolis Man Accused of Purposely Infecting Men with HIV

Michael L Johnson, a past wrestling champ from Warren Central High, Indianapolis has found himself in big trouble at Lindenwood University (St. Charles, MO).   He was arrested on October 10, 2013  after being accused of exposing five or more sexual partners to HIV without informing them of risk.

On Johnson’s computer, 32 videos were found of him having sex with various partners. A man reported to authorities  that he was found to have HIV and gonorrhea within a month of having unprotected sex with Johnson.   In the ensuing weeks, 4 more men came forward with similar claims.  All of the sexual contacts are Lindenwood University students.

Michael Johnson is now in jail, with bond set at $100,000,  facing felony charges of recklessly infecting a person with HIV and recklessly exposing people to HIV infection.  In Missouri, the first count brings 10 to life in prison, and the second charges bring 5 to 15 years penalty.

It appears, for  Johnson and at least one of his victims, that defeat has been snatched from the jaws of victory.

Life Dynamics and Jill Stanek: Groundbreaking Legal Means to Stop Child Predators

As many pro-lifers know, Jill Stanek has joined with Life Dynamics to report news on the life issues. She’s now reporting on a groundbreaking push by Life Dynamics to hold the abortion industry accountable for concealing the sexual abuse of minors.
This blog has repeatedly referred to the first study, done more than 10 years ago by Life Dynamics, which revealed that over 90 percent of abortion clinics, who were called by an actress portraying a 13 year old girl with 22 year old boyfriend, showed a willingness to flout the laws requiring reporting of suspected sexual abuse of minors. Many of these abortion clinics even provided the methodology to conceal the sexual abuse.
Now Life Dynamics has mailed CDs to 53 thousand personal injury attorneys to educate them on the state laws pertinent to this issue, and the possibility of bringing suit against school officials, health care professionals and clinics which provide services to minors who have been sexually abused by adults, and fail in their legal requirement to report such abuse to the state.
Jill Stanek reports that Mark Crutcher’s phone at Life Dynamics has been ringing incessantly ever since launching this campaign.

Your friendly Pharmer suggests that further rich ground for the lawyers exists and that fear of litigation can dissuade retail pharmacies from stocking Plan B and Ella.

The government can force retailers to sell these drugs to the sexual predators, only if they stock the drug.
In the future, lawsuits might be the tool to stop the government from forcing retailers to stock these drugs. None of the businesses could survive a group of civil lawsuits for aiding sexual predators.

Currently good target states for this kind of litigation are Washington, Oregon and of course, New York. The large retail pharmacy chains would run screaming to the State Boards of Pharmacy for relief from the governments requirement to sell these drugs to minor females and their rapists.

Boston College Wants to Discipline Students for Handing out Condoms

Administrators at Jesuit-run Boston College have sent out warnings of possible disciplinary action to students who have been passing out free condoms on campus.

Students have established so called “safe sites” on campus for distributing the prophylactic devices for males and females.  As readers know,  condoms and the premarital free for all is against Catholic teaching.  While the  administrators are not spying in individual dorm rooms for condoms and sex, they object to the public distribution at their institution.

One might expect that students who desired to attend a Catholic institution might have some respect for the religious sensibilities and teachings, even if they do not fully concur.  But we have learned, from Sandra (the riveted) Fluke that some students attend these institutions for the purpose of tearing them down.   The condom distribution is said to have been occurring since 2009.  Perhaps the practice has become extremely overt, or perhaps an administrator finally mustered the courage to address the issue.

A Washington DC group,  “Advocates for Youth, is donating $400 each semester for condom distribution at Boston College according to the Boston Globe.

It appears that the local ACLU is ready to jump into the fray.  Perhaps this would not be so bad.  If the Jesuits lose this argument in the legal arena, it might be a step towards smaller government.

If the ACLU can establish that penalties against  handing out condoms in public at a religious educational institution, are unconstitutional  then we can establish that laws against smoking in public are likewise unconstitutional.  Remember…. condoms don’t stop the spread of HPV (genital warts), etc.  In fact, new STI cases VASTLY outpace  than new jobs AND  new graduates in the United States, with an estimated 19.7 million new infections in 2008, says the CDC. This costs the nation $16 billion in direct health care costs per year.   On these bases ‘Nanny’ Bloomberg and Michelle Obama would have to shut down their obsessive-compulsive meddling.

Boston College need not “discipline” the students for their undiplomatic and discourteous treatment of their educational institution and its traditions.   Instead, the students  could be “praised” online with video and verse, and in letters of recommendation, for their very public “concern” for  the sexual health and availability of their fellow students.  Particular attention could be paid to the students who pass out condoms in front of the church.  That information would remain as searchable as the facebooks, resume, and other activities of the students, and help to  track them into appropriate career paths.  ;-)


“BUGS ‘R’ US”, says the CDC.

The TSA Was Supposed to Prepare You For Routine Sexual Violations

‘Violated’: Women Subjected to ‘Roadside Body Cavity Search’ During Routine Traffic Stop (And Dash Cam Caught It All) | Video | TheBlaze.com.

Two Texas women, Angel Dobbs, 38, and her niece Ashley Dobbs, 24 are suing the TX State Troopers for unlawfully searching their body cavities along the side of the highway, this past July.

The dash cam of the cop car recorded it for all the world to see.  You can determine that the search actually occurred  if you desire to follow the link at the top.

A detail mentioned in the story is that the same latex gloves were used by officer Kelley Helleson to search both women vaginally and anally. The women were initially pulled over by officer David Farrell  for throwing cigarette butts out the window.

It’s like that with the TSA also.    If you have a concern to avoid sexually transmitted infections, you might wish to consider this when flying, and now, when taking a road trip through Texas.

If Lena is sterilized by her sex habits (Chlamydia trachomatis) or her pills (hormonal derangement), will it be a selective advantage for the human species. Hmmmmmmmmm???

FDA Approves Use of Antiretroviral, Truvada, for HIV Prevention

US FDA approves first drug shown to reduce risk of HIV infection | Society | guardian.co.uk.

What happens with the anti-infectives which are used for PREVENTION, instead of treating infections?
Resistance abounds.

The FDA has approved the use of Truvada, an antiretroviral agent with two ingredients, emtricitabine (nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor) and tenofovir, (nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitor). This is now recommended for use in a non-infected partner who decides to have sexual contact with an HIV infected partner. The protection rate in the most favorable African study is 75%. Other studies done in the U.S. show results which are not nearly that good. Participants in the Truvada HIV prevention studies were encouraged to also use condoms.

Hope that extra special sex is worth $14,000 per year in the U.S., the still present risk of HIV, the risk of kidney damage, as well as the risk of making HIV strains more resistant to two more drugs, and the combo cocktails which contain them.

Pharmer chalks this FDA decision up with the scores of other irrational choices to misuse drugs without consideration of the present and long term drawbacks.
