    I heard about this one a recent episode of Fresh Air on NPR and I google to confirm. :)

    I've always thought of Mr. Huckabee to probably be one of the more moderate visible Republicans out there and I still believe he is.

    It scares me that this man represents the "best of" the Republican party. :eek:

    Link to full story.

    (Playing the devil's advocate just for fun here).... It would solve the problem, in theory.

    Of course, for that to work, every person capable of sex would have to be tested multiple times over the space of a year. The expense would be astronomical.

    Then, there are the silent carriers, those who will never die of Aids but have the virus.

    Huckabee is clueless. Nobody isolated Syphilis victims and of course Tuberculosis victims aren't isolated anymore. It has nothing to do with prevention and everything to do with homophobia.

    Sure, but in return you'd be behaving like the North Korean government.

    To me at least that's an extreme price to pay.

    Plus in reality as Ugg says. It wouldn't work like that.

    But, here's the important question, can we quarantine stupid?
