Contaigous Disease set to be named 3rd leading cause of death

According to this Al-AP news story, AIDS is set to become the 3rd leading cause of death among people around the world behind Heart Disease and Stroke. As I mentioned here, AIDS is a disease which we treat not like a contagious disease, but a political cause.

Currently ranked fourth behind heart disease, stroke, and respiratory infections, AIDS is set to become No. 3, say researchers in a new report in the Public Library of Science's Medicine journal. It accounts for about 2.8 million deaths every year. But the researchers estimate a total of nearly 120 million people could die in the next 25 years.

I mention that this disease is not treated like a contagious disease. If you had Smallpox, you would be isolated, and quarantined. If you had any other deadly disease you could infect others with, you would be isolated and quarantined by law. With AIDS, you are encouraged to rejoin society, risk spreading the infection, and we must sue anyone who doesn't wish to be infected for discrimination. We will even hide the identity of infected people from the population at large to insure the uninfected are unable to protect themselves, in order to protect the infected persons privacy. We don't sue the infected person for spreading the disease, we sue those who don't wish to be infected. Brilliant ideal there folks.

This is what happens when you have a contagious disease which is treated in a politically correct manner. Political Correctness will cause you to treat the disease in a court room instead of a treatment facility.

Just for fun, look at the famous story of Typhoid Mary, who was Quarantined for life. Thankfully we didn't have liberals then who would have happily sued saying that a life sentence for a disease was unconstitutional and unfair. I am sure it is cruel and unusual punishment, to protect the population at large from an infection from a deadly disease.
