Tennessee state Sen. Stacey Campfield (R) falsely claimed on Thursday that it was nearly impossible for someone to contract AIDS through heterosexual contact.
“Most people realize that AIDS came from the homosexual community,” he told Michelangelo Signorile, who hosts a radio program on SiriusXM OutQ. “It was one guy screwing a monkey, if I recall correctly, and then having sex with men. It was an airline pilot, if I recall.”
“My understanding is that it is virtually — not completely, but virtually — impossible to contract AIDS through heterosexual sex.”
"I'm not a historian on AIDS," he said in an interview Friday. "But I've read and seen what other people have read and seen, and those facts are out there."

I will say it again!!! People who don't graduate highschool have to take a GED test to prove they are capable of working, well I will say again, that these idiots who think they are so much smarter than we are, should have to pass a damn GED BEFORE they even run for an election! Our government representative from BOTH parties have proven the failure of our education system in this country!

I sincerely pray that the GOP and the Tea Party both wake up and quickly realize that dogmatic, dangerous, religious zealots have infected and co opted their parties.
Sincerely, I think that there are reasonable people in both movements who aren't quite aware these things.
THIS OP is food for thought for conservatives.
