Justine Sacco was fired because she told the politically incorrect, accurate truth about AIDS

A company called InterActiveCorp just fired empoyee Justine Sacco because she tweeted the following:

“Going to Africa. Hope I don’t get AIDS. Just kidding. I’m white!”

Before Sacco made that tweet, The New York Times reported:

“The rate of AIDS among black women is 27 times the rate among white women.”

This is precisely why math is the most politically incorrect academic subject. No matter how much the radical left wants to see “racism” where none exists – no matter how much they claim to be “offended” when there is no rational reason to be offended – no matter how many temper tantrums they throw – you can’t argue against the math. The math will always win.

If the radical left insists on about getting mad at someone for the AIDS problem, they have chosen the wrong target. It’s not Sacco’s fault that anyone has AIDS. If the radical left really wants to get mad at someone over the AIDS problem, then why don’t they get mad at the people who are actually spreading AIDS?

New York Civil Liberties Union says Obamacare violates patients’ right to sexual privacy

Obamacare requires doctors to ask patients personal questions about their sex lives, and to put their answers into an electronic database. Doctors who avoid doing this will be penalized.

Dr. Adam Budzikowski, a New York cardiologist, said these sex question were “insensitive, stupid and very intrusive,” and that he could not think of any reason why a cardiologist would need such information.

Dr. Richard Amerling, an associate professor of medicine at Albert Einstein Medical College, said that a patient’s medical record should be “a story created by you and your doctor solely for your treatment and benefit,” and that Obamacare turns doctor appointments “into an interrogation, and the data will not be confidential.”

The New York Civil Liberties Union said that these requirements were a violation of patients’ privacy.
