Basquo,


By the way it is Frederick and I understand your pain cause by some in Religion and I did not dance around your question and I think you will find that 98 percent of all American ASO where fromed from a passion for Love and Charity and the Teaching of Chirst for this country still empoly the base of our laws , ethics and teaching on Christian in spirit sorry to burst your bubble for that is a fact to me.  I am hoping you will understand my concept of the Christian Chruch is not about denominations or Religious Folks, and  I do understand you sexuclary veiwpoints.  Are you a recoving Roman Chatholic and did your education come from this Christ Instiution for you write very  well and look latin.  Do you believe in the Marriage of Gay Folks?  And my friend what is your concept of marriage and where do your think the term can from?  I am under the understand that all are welcome in this forum and hope  that racism is not part of your adgenda for it would be ashame for folks that wan't to be accepted for their belief and life, not to accept other, for  that is racism in my book.  I like to ask for forgivness from you if my Christian bothers or Sisters have hurt you in the past, please forgive us for again we are only human.

Peace and lot s of Love.

BASQUO

You are funny concerning the statment you are wondering if I am HIV positive for I am very open about my HIV statue for I tell whom I wish and some don't need know for I like my privicy don't you? This also statment of yours also open to the door to discuss something that fascinates me concerning a concept of  HIV Rapid Screening Kits for sale  over the counter (OTC) to the public at large and wouldn't it be cool to go to CVS and get a HIV screening kit  over the counter like a pregence test and them we could to meet up and I could prove it to you with out going throuht a lot of red tape from governments and ASO.  You know the CDC thinks that 250,000 people are walking around HIV positive and have no idea that  they are positive and I don't know how educated you are BASQUO about pass CDC numbers ,but you can almost be assured they are way off the mark and I think more like a half million are walking around HIV with no clue, with 10 percent being in the VA system.

What do you think about HIV rapid scrreening kits being sold over the counter in CVS, BASQUO?

Frederick, I think I might be starting to understand what you're saying right now, but it doesn't change the fact that you say one thing and explaining it in a totally different way. I don't live in a bubble. And I don't mean to burst yours, but if you think you've got me figured out then you're pretty wrong.  I am a Christian, am not nor ever was Catholic, believe in civil marraige equality for all but leave it up to denominations to decide what their idea of marraige should be.

And as you are trying to figure me out, I am trying to figure you out. I understand the difference between Christian Charity in spirit and Christian Charity in organized religion. I think it would be a fair statement to say that 100% of American ASOs were formed from a passion for Love and Charity, but to say that they were inspired by teachings of Christ (which I can agree with somewhat) is way different from saying

if you are in the USA or UK then thank God for both these countries have moblized to bring forth Chrishtian Charities to HIV folks with cutting edge treatment

I am the HIPAA Privacy Officer for my hospital and I surely respect anyone's privacy, but once you've outed yourself here, you're out. Thank you for clarifying that you are indeed HIV positive. Otherwise, you would have been asked to refrain from posting in this particular forum.

I think it's fantastic that CVS sells antibody screening kits but I wasn't aware that they were rapid tests. I don't need to see your results to believe you are poz, I will take your word for it since you finally clarified it at Miss Philicia's request.

Thanks for reading.

BASQUO

Yes I undersatnd the territory issues here in this forum and thank you for your cleaification of communication for we are both Lovers of Jesus.  BASQUO  I am not afraid of being out with HIV or my faith.   

CVS doesn't have rapit HIV testing OTC for some reason Over the Counter Rapid Testing is not avaiable for sale over the counter.  Wow HIPPA person that open the door for debate of the most unuseful law ever made in my opion, what a mistake to enact HIPPA for I believe it took all of the person reationship and trust from the health provider and patient to an end and has caused more death and heartach and open in  the future it is reformed with hopes to restore trust and faith in a professional healthcare system.

Again BASQUO  I am not afraid of my HIV status or being full of fear in the confidedentality conversation for it is very unhealthie in my opinon ( live that way for the first 10 years .. over it).. for my faith tells  me, fear is not from God.  I am happy to hear you come out in your Christian Faith.. all is good..


I need to move on with my works and again nice to meet you BASQUO and if you get to Tampa Florida come stay at my house and I show you the town... bring Missy and we have a party.... by the swimming pool and have a few cock tails and some Florida Grown Sticky Green Bud.  Puff Puff

Waiting for an answer Poz.com and AIDSMED.com to my question, don't mean to be pushie , just a simple ASK

And if it is a no, for remember no answer is a no, what are people afraid of in the concept of creating a campaign for a "Cure for AIDS"?

I will continue to pray and be patient for some leaders with courage to come forth with zeal and passion for a campaign for a CURE FOR AIDS with results to include  the 30 million people (children, women, and men) with HIV that don't have excess to MEDs.

Peace

Frederick,

Sorry, but I just can't take you seriously when you're still posting about a cure in a thread headed up by a video featuring Boyd Graves.

Coming here and trying to bully people into jumping up and down and calling for a cure (as if that isn't already being done) and going on and on about the pharmaceutical companies that we're all supposedly in league with, just isn't going to gain you much, if any, support.

I'd like to know more about your alleged affiliation with GNP+. There actually IS no GNP+USA - so I'm wondering what organisation you're talking about that is so eager to "sign up for this [your] call". And before you answer that, see my reply to you in this other thread
where you are advocating for the retention of hiv travel restrictions.

Ann,

I truly have no respect for you for your lack of hope, faith and tricky is one that is most unattractive.
For you know I posted this in Ativisim and your trickery to move and then your words of companance make me think that you are just another paid AIDS professional in AIDS Inc  in America that doesn't care about the 30 million people with HIV that don't have excess to drug shame on you sister and your words too have no meaning to me.

I give clue here America that in other to form a group you need two people and GNP+USA is a network or pure charity, so again your assumtion in your statment are misleading and a lie.  GNP+USA is 8 months old and doing quit well in building its base but understand completly the territory of old school folks not wanting any new ideas or direction to rock their boat.

Be Well Sister and Please pray for the 30 million people that don't have acess to HIV drug for they are humanbeings not animal and where is you compassion I ask.

Ann,

Allegance to GNP+ .. I like their web page for not sure what they do for  they have a web page and I think that is it for they are all good, just not a activist group in my opion.  I think if you look at their web page it is GNP PLUS for their is only one GNP+now...

Humm what is your point?

Frederick, I've got plenty of hope and faith. I've also got plenty of pragmatism - go read my previous posts about what I think of a cure for hiv. I'm sure it's possible in years - no, decades - to come, but we don't know enough about hiv yet. As for funding for a cure, there's only so much money for hiv as a whole, much of which is going into keeping people alive until there IS a cure.

I haven't employed trickery. You made a claim about an organisation and I asked for more information. It's evidently a tiny group - you and who else?

And I stand by my words anyway. You insinuate that you are a spokesperson for this GNP+USA, yet you come to this website and talk contrary to some key factors that the parent organisation, GNP+, stands for. Or are you now saying that you have nothing to do with the parent organization?  http://www.gnpplus.net/component/option,com_frontpage/Itemid,1/ Funny enough, there's currently an article about travel restrictions on their home page. If you think GNP+ isn't an advocacy group, I'd like to know what you think IS an advocacy group.

And I'm getting pretty fed up with your AIDS inc insinuations. Are people who work in the hiv sector supposed to starve? How are they supposed to pay rent?  And by the way, if you'd bothered to read my blurb on the AboutUs page before attacking me, you'd see how your accusations against me hold no water.

I'm sorry you've got such a chip on your shoulder - but I feel like I'm talking to a brick wall, so, well, what's the point?

Ann

Dear Ann,

I have never stated that GNP Plus was a parent orgainization, for I not sure what they do and for GNP+USA to take a position opposit to GNP Plus is not the case, first of all USA allows HIV people to travel in the USA and GNP PLUS is misleading people,.. and Second what power does GNP PLUS have as forigien group have in the USA polotics .. I say none,, You may now of GNP+NA which formed 3 or 5 years ago and put up a web page and then have done nothing, so in my pass works when one group doesn't advocate for social justice then watch out a new one is on the horizon.  Thrid AIDS Inc in American is a good thing and I love the people and hope for the best but the truth is many are making money and the Secert needs to be put out in the voices for people to understand the planning field.  I am sorry you do not like the term AIDS Inc in America or the 18 billion in USA funding yearly or the 9 billion in Global Funding for AIDS is big business.  I am happy for you to have a income and food , housing and a purpose for I am advocating for the 30 million HIV woman, men, children that don't have that blessings for that is not a chip on my shoulder that is my cause.. Would you like to join in with GNP+USA to call for A Cure For AIDS Now to help these women, men and children.. we can start off new Ann for I forgive you and peace and lots of love to your and yours.

Those of us who are long-time members of this site do not appreciate you making accusations and insinuations about Ann.  She is a devoted member of these forums, as well as a moderator.   AIDS may be big business, but that has nothing to do with Ann.

Frederick,

This is the last time I'll bother to address you, because, well, because your circular arguments contradict each other. I've got more interesting things to do with my time other than try to translate what you say into some sort of coherent English.
 
The thing that allows me to eat and have a roof over my head is my disability money - not AIDS inc. Not that it's any of your business. I don't talk about my finances in these forums and I don't expect you to talk about my finances either. (huh. Finances. I wish. I got £5 to my name at the moment, and a good portion of debt, too.)

And gee, I'm thrilled to bits that you "forgive" me. Forgive me for what, having a life? Whatever.


Ann


Thanks, Alan, you posted while I was writing. ;)

Frederick:

I'm sorry, but for the life of me I simply don't understand your advocacy tactic(s) here. You want to get into cure advocacy? Then do it -- learn the science of HIV, familiarize yourself with the research that is (and is not) being done, and make your voice heard within the research and activist communities.

POZ and AIDSmeds have generated, as you say, "a call to cure AIDS." Most recently, in the October issue of POZ, the last and most important of a seven-point demand for a National AIDS Strategy is "Spend More Money on Research and the Hunt for the Cure."

Fortunately, I don't work with anyone -- not at POZ, AIDSmeds or in the activist communities -- who believes that a call-to-action alone does much of anything, as if the cure is secretly locked away in some test tube in a vault at the National Institutes of Health and that all that's needed is a little public outcry to set it free. For many years, I have had the great fortune of working alongside people who ARE looking for a cure at every turn -- we've seen potential with things like the scientific mysteries behind long-term nonprogressors... hydroxyurea... early antiretroviral treatment... stopping antiretroviral treatment... immune-based therapies and therapeutic vaccines... gene therapy... even stem cell transplants. And this is by no means a comprehensive list. Where there has been a glimmer of hope, advocacy -- including putting pressure on researchers and industry and pushing for increased funding -- has followed.

Could we all be more vigilant in advocating for a cure? Of course we can -- but please don't waste time rearranging deck chairs with another empty "call to action." Frederick, get involved. Learn about where science has been and where it's going... take the time to understand where there are fissures in our public and private research spending... figure out, for yourself and with others, what stones have gone unturned -- all in the name of becoming an effective advocate, and an effective leader, in pursuit of a cure. Spending your time proselytizing about individuals in these Forums or the entire "AIDS Inc." isn't help you or our cause at all -- it is disenginious.

Tom,
 
Thank you for your commitments and opinions for it is clear you are not going to use your politic clout to advance a cure or call for a Cure for AIDS in a fashion of Zeal and Passion.  I did expect more from the advocates of the past but it is clear many are in the same bed with one another and hope you enjoy the opportunity you have now, but please when you go to bed at night and say your blessings for all you have received, at least say a prayer for the 30 million women, men and children that don't have your education, large kitchen or excess to your Meds that keep you alive and think about your leadership role in your works.

To me it is most distasteful what AIDS leadership has turn into and what AIDS Inc in American is afraid of ,for I would like to meet one true activist in this time and day.. However it is clear many are very complacent in their ideas and efforts to keep the band playing on.  So you answer is that NO that Poz.com or AIDSMed.com want support a new Zeal and effort for a cure for AIDS and will be OK with 30 million people dieing of AIDS?

I am glad to you you coming out to express your opinions , however it is clear you are not an activist or a leader, just another we educated person in New York City.

I ask for fogivness if I hurt Ann feelings, which seem she never ask when her tongue cuts people apart , but I think you are right not to adress me any more ann, for if you can not stand the heat in the kichen move on.. concerning the long time folks I understand the territory issues and the clicks that have form here but I not here to make friends .. I am here to advocate for the 30 million women, men and children that don't have excess to AIDS Med  that is why GNP+USA was started for GNP PLUS doesn't advocat for meds .. just travel ban

I find it very fasinating that many will pick apart word and conversation and now of you will adress the fact of these people needing drugs and so many of you will speak up to justify the greed of 1600 dollars a month cost for pills for Dick Chenny Company .. Shame ... Shame .. Shame...

Who are you folks for I think Tom is right concerning being in the wrong place looking for leaders and advocates with Zeal and Passion.

GNP+ doesn't advocate for universal access to aids treatment, care and prevention? Are you sure?

Quote

The Donor Consortium Conference "Indispensable: People Living with HIV/AIDS and Achieving Universal Access to AIDS Treatment, Care and Prevention by 2010" last March was the first of its kind. It was an unprecedented occasion where three networks of people living with HIV - GNP+, ICW and ITPC - had an open exchange with a variety of donors - private, governmental and multilateral. During the two days, PLHIV networks and donors worked together to discover how they could be complementary to each other for achieving that goal: Universal access to treatment, care and prevention by 2010. Here you will find the final report of this meeting. This report will be available as an electronic document only. You can either save or print the report to read it offline. Please feel free to share the report and distribute it widely.

Ann,

I am so happy you are taking to me again.. have you forgave me for my hursh words.. Yes for I worked with them in the past  tring to get them on board with a few project pretaining to global AIDS and you know I have some problem communicating when it come to Global AIDS for I take no excuss and sometimes it a little mean, which I call passion and truth. They made it very clear they don't advocate for healthcare or GNP+NA... Don't ask my why for it is a leadership thing...  they never came to the table to advocate for PEDFAR and GNP+NA is so disfunctional I surprised they still are around.  

I adding a little comment for Missy in the message too for I don't won't to waste bytes in the web server... Church Man.. all man.. just for you .. lets party...

Peace and sincerely lots of love to both of you for I do like both of your spunk...

Thank you for your commitments and opinions for it is clear you are not going to use your politic clout to advance a cure or call for a Cure for AIDS in a fashion of Zeal and Passion.

And with that, not only do I conclude that you have A LOT to learn about HIV and activism, you also need to learn to read.

If you truly care so deeply about the 30 million woman, men and children crying for leadership and you think that those of us here are doing nothing but serving some Big Brother like AIDS Inc -- Then get the hell off of these forums and go provide some leadership for them all yourself
Your words ring quite hollow and your posts are boring the hell out of me.

Frederick, itís time to stop.  Stop thinking that all the Moderators here are on the payroll of Big Pharma, stop accusing them of not supporting your good intentions, and most of all, stop being so defensive when people call you out on your tactics.

I am not a moderator here, nor am I on any payroll of any ďAIDS Inc.Ē company or organization, but I am a member of these forums, and I know Ann from our interaction here, and I have personally met Tim Horn, RapidRod, and Alanbama. Stop calling them out and accusing them of thoughts or intentions about which you cannot possibly know.

Iím very sorry about the loss of your partner last October. Iím very sorry for the void which you now feel in your life that causes you be so defensive of your intentions when you want to help the world so much. Iím sorry that whatever reason made you move from the D.C. area to Tampa has left you discontent. But these forums are not the place for you to state your desires and intentions if you lash out at whomever questions  you.  And by questioning peopleís faith, professions, intentions and such, yes, you are lashing out. And itís not welcomed here.

Again, Iím not a moderator, but you need to be reined in.  And I canít do it. Please, do it yourself. This is a wonderful place for people to communicate, express themselves, and get to know other HIV-positive people and discuss the things we face everyday.

You learning disability matters not. Itís your presentation and defensiveness that I donít like.  And thatís me saying that, with no prompt from anyone else.

Bless you Frederick.

I kept away from this thread simply because I don't suffer fools gladly but when you start attacking those who put their time and effort into helping people..especially Tim (not Tim-bo) and Ann..who I know doesn't need anyone to fight her battles for her, she is one tough Lady.

You seriously need to shut the hell up now..(spoken as a member not as a Moderator).

The constant meme that nothing is being done or no one outside of AIDSMEDS is thinking about AIDS is absurd. To debate anyone about the 'science' and practical 'treatment' of AIDS from a religious perspective is a fool's errand.

Creighton  and Jan,

Thank you for responding to this forum, however some may be confused for this furum it is not about me iit is about A CURE FOR AIDS.  Creighton thank you for coming out with your name for it is nice to met you.  I am not sure who the moderators are in the webpage and what that means or what part they have in advocacy efforts for I like to focuc on A Cure for AIDS and the problems and solutions. My focus is on  the 30 million folks that need AIDSMeds, NOW.  I hoping that Tim and the other folks her will find some strength in their voice to become advocates for the 30 million women,men and children  that don't have access to AIDS Meds and I hope Jan whoever she is fines a true heart of love.  I am celebrating the love of life today and will continue to stand in the gap with a voice to speak the truth for these 30 million women, men and children that AIDS Inc in America has abandoned.

Creighton it is clear you concerns seem real and that you have been doing some investingating with the gossip circle in D.C and trust me man I am a unltimate warrior for social justice and my Faith make me whole and thank you for concerns of the lost of Dr. Gene Copello for he is in the arm of my Lord Jesus and all is good for him.  I am healing from my lost to get back on with my Faith works.  One reason our partnership was so strong is he knew my heart  would always give a good fight for social justice and He never sold out  and I will not sell out.  I am in Tampa for it is my Home and very happy to be out of the pit of D.C.  Concerning the egos and prides of the moderators lets get past them and focus again on A Cure for AIDS to help the 30 million women, men and children with out hope, for it seems like no one is willing to adress the 30 million HIV folks that do not have access to AIDS MEDS but many are listening, Whats up?  I pray it is not to late and that 10 milllion of these people have not arealy die from the greed and lack of ativism from AIDS Inc in America for have  you not heard that it is a time of CHANGE.  Creigton again thank you for you thoughts and Jan peace and lots of love to you sister.  

Sincerely yours,

Frederick Wright

P.S
If you have any more concerns or questions please give me a ring on the telephone at 813-985-2968 for I be happy to discuss it futher or meet face to face with another that wants to join in to help the 30 million HIV people that are cring out for leadership, hope and A Cure for AIDS.

Good Morning Tim,

Good to see you out of your office... and joining in on the fun... I love when GNP Plus gets to work .. for less for me to do... Yes Dr. Gene Copello was a great advocate, activist, professor and visionary leader that had a heart filled with the love of Jesus and was happy to be his Senior Advisor for many years in our partnership to bring change and lots of new and progressive policy forward to the people with HIV/AIDS for he built The AIDS Instiute from a small group with a budget of 20,000 dollars to a year to a budget of 5 million dollars within a couple of years, where many fruits can foward in the past works from The AIDS Institute, like PEDFAR.  For his ethics to invest all his personal money and most of mine to help in building The AIDS Institute, which delight me very much in our works. To me this make him a leader that was truly one for the people and no one pull his strings, for he was a man of honor, turth and intergety in his leadership and hoping more will follow his leadership.  I think you can learn alot Tom from his works.  I also hope The AIDS Institute can find a vision for the future are won't turn into a Think Tank just for Pharma and Johnson and Johnson.  ;D  Time will tell and I believe the truth always surfaces.

Love you Tim Man

Lots of Good News today,

That is so cool and again the New AIDS Institue without fail is following a leader .. It is also note worthie that Dr. Gene Copello is one of the founding members of GNP+USA or The Global Network of Positive People in the USA and I think he would love that the + in this group stands for the love of Jesus and the Cross for he is the one who mentored me and incouraged me to start GNP+USA.  For Dr Copello would say "When one group doesn't perform, just start another and also very famous for saying " And let the Game Begin".

Joy Joy joy, go GNP PLUS and TAI stand up and fight to be heard for I know GNP+USA will be.

Peace

Again Thank you for join in today in advocating for People with AIDS.

I not sure who stated that GNP+USA has any roots with GNP Plus for that is very true GNP+USA is completly independent network.. no one pulls GNP+USA strings for we are not a puppet for PHARMA or a do boy for any speical interest group or person.  I like to thank The AIDS Institute for pointing that out and making it public and also thank Tom with AIDS Med for posting it.  All are welcome to join GNP+USA to advocate for the 30 million women, men and children that don't have AIDS MEDS.

From what I can tell, Fred-E, you're the Volunteer Coordinator, not the "Senior Advisor" -- can't we stop the charade for just a second?

Also, is it true that you were the 1974 Grand Marshall for Southern Decadence?

I will say that I have to agree with the majority of the forum members.  Then I saw the number and thought holy cow Frederick lives in Tampa close to Tamiami trail, which got me to thinking maybe Frederick could use some of the great resources that are available in the area and here a couple of great ASO's that may be able to shine some light on this whole thing for you, I hope they help.  I have been doing work with many of them for years, and they are very helpful and are always willing to answer any questions and provide very adequate education.

Hey,

Thank you for the information, however Tampa AIDS Network went under last month and is one of the fall outs for you may know they have had many problems in the past and lake of vision and leadership, so you may want to take them off your list.  I am doing great and will ponder the funraising concept.. not really my thing those, but will ponder it.  And what is your name?

Let me just start with this Mr. Wright:

Although I am just a user and not in any way associated with AIDS MEDS, I and speaking for many do cherish these forums. While I see that these forums are opening for discussions on activism and their political discourses, many of us come here mainly to support each other and even though we do not have to agree with the management of these forums we have come to respect them, for the main reason of keeping these forums in order and open for us. They are also known public figures, contributing to the welfare and well-being of our community.

I don't know your history though I did meet Dr. Copello some years ago while I was in the Bay Area, but it would seem very clear that your GNP+USA has nothing to do with the AIDS Institute and GNP+. It's to be made clear. While you do have a record for advocating for more funding for those infected with HIV in Africa, which is respectable, there's no need to come in these forums to insult the management and others that have done good works for simply not agreeing with your "social justice" strategy, if you have one to speak of at all.

And for the rest of us, some of us do what we can in our little ways (I don't think not many are quite prepared to call themselves "ultimate worriers" like you do) to make things better. All movements are supported by a large group of us - the small supports, so to speak - doing small things to achieve any changes. In my own experiences, the last thing we need is someone with a messiah complex with very little credibility bellying others with nothing but a banner stating the obvious and without any tangible solution.

We all know and feel the frustration of what's happening in Africa, and there are ways we can contribute in our small ways. If you feel that you can make a difference, state clearly your strategies and solutions! Because we know for sure that they have not asked you to represent them - but it would not really matter if you can show us what strategy you actually have, convince us with reasons other than passive-aggressive bellying and verbal provocations.

Until and unless you can do that - what you have been posting here are nothing more than meaningless noises that are disturbing the peace here and interfering with other functions that these forums are providing to members - all affected by HIV no less - that are in need of supports.

For my short time being a user here I have seen my share of lunatics and crooks - perhaps it was wrong for me to conclude that you were one - but I see no reason yet to change my mind, not for your association with Dr. Copello and his past history in "activism", for they mean nothing to me while all I see of your ideas are nothing but empty slogans.
