Quest for HIV/AIDS vaccine suffers setback


Joining us today is Tracey Jackson of Piedmont Care to discuss "AIDS Vaccine Awareness Day". World AIDS Vaccine Day, also known as HIV Vaccine Awareness Day, is observed annually on May 18. HIV vaccine advocates mark the day by promoting the continued urgent need for a vaccine to prevent HIV infection and AIDS. The LA Times reported the US Government shut down a HIV/AIDS vaccine trial last month citing "an independent panel of safety experts found that participants getting the vaccine appeared to be slightly more likely to contract the virus and no better at suppressing its replication than those who got a placebo." 

Maxine Waters (D - California) said that President Obama has compiled a secret database. "The President has put in place an organization with the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life," Representative Maxine Waters told journalist Roland Martin on Monday. "That database will have information about everything on every individual on ways that it's never been done before and whoever runs for President on the Democratic ticket has to deal with that. They're going to go down with that database and the concerns of those people because they can't get around it. And he's [President Obama] been very smart. It's very powerful what he's leaving in place." 

Conservative Televangelist Pat Robertson makes waves again by blaming women for their cheating husbands. The host of the 700 Club told a viewer who wrote in for advice on how to forgive her cheating husband was not at fault because that is what men do and to focus on the positives he does for her and her family. . "Recognize also, like it or not, males have a tendency to wander a little bit, what you want to do is make a home so wonderful that he doesn't want to wander" or become "captured" by the "salacious" magazine images and Internet pornography.
