    (chrisTwire)—Matt Damon, famous actor, writer, and graduate of Cambridge Rindge and Latin School in Cambridge, MA recently praised George Bush’s work with PEPFAR, the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief.

    According to the official PEPFAR website ,it is the U.S. Government initiative to help save the lives of those suffering from HIV/AIDS around the world. This historic commitment is the largest by any nation to combat a single disease internationally, and PEPFAR investments also help alleviate suffering from other diseases across the global health spectrum. PEPFAR is driven by a shared responsibility among donor and partner nations and others to make smart investments to save lives.\

    PEPFAR is the cornerstone and largest component of the U.S. President’s Global Health Initiative. With a special focus on improving the health of women, newborns and children, the Global Health Initiative’s goal is to save the greatest number of lives by increasing and building upon what works and, then, supporting countries as they work to improve the health of their own people.
    “I would kiss George W. Bush on the mouth for what he did on PEPFAR,” Damon told The Atlantic.com. “Three seconds, no tongue” … All in the name of AIDS Relief.

    But the actor and high profile 2008 Obama supporter said he has been “disappointed” by the current administration, pointing to what he saw as an incomplete devotion to poverty and disease prevention in Africa.

    “You would have expected that Obama, with his reputation as a pragmatist, would look at PEPFAR, looked at how effective it is, and thought that he should make similar investments in other issues, definitely water and sanitation,” the 2008 Obama backer said. “I take issue with a few of the directions Obama has gone in.”

    Shame on you Obama….Shame on you indeed!

    Obama covers up secret UFO proof
    A YouTube user is citing NASA’s own video as proof that alien-piloted UFOs are real and that NASA is trying to cover up their existence. Besides the video, which shows a tiny “object” where perhaps none should be, NASA briefly took the satellite that shot the video offline after the video was posted.
