13 Times The Reagan White House Press Briefing Erupted With Laughter Over AIDS





In Jon Cohenís 2001 book, Shots in the Dark: The Wayward Search for an AIDS Vaccine, he detailed the Reagan administrationís early indifference to the growing epidemic. White House acting press secretary Larry Speakes, and some of the reporters at press briefings, found the crisis to be quite the joking matter.

7. I'm not saying I agree...

 

but mandatory testing and quarantine would've reduced AIDS transmissions. So would tattooing.

10. K&R. We fear what we do not understand. Back then we didn't understand AIDS so we feared it.

Right now we don't understand ebola therefore we fear it. The really unfortunate thing is is back then they really didn't have the knowledge to understand AIDS. We have the knowledge to understand ebola and yet we still fear it.

16. Of course the Majority Does

 

The Majority was for slavery too
The Majority was for Separate but Equal too
The Majority was for Japanese interment
The Majority was for putting Native Americans on reservations

When it comes to what the so called majority wants when concerns individual rights and freedom America has a piss poor track record and is wrong the vast majority of times.

17. Quarantines should be used for infection control, not to make stupid people feel safe.

Fortunately for women and minorities the majority doesn't always get its way.
