    AIDS could be eliminated if thise infected had enough personal respondsibility to keep it to themselves.........but a little restraint is too much to ask isn't it.

    Meanwhile, cut off the funds so that they cannot be tested and find out whether or not they do have it.

    No doubt she had participated in the case while Solicitor General.

    Well, she participated in Obamacare while Solicitor General, but that didn't stop her.
