I can't believe this is titled "lifetime of money"...this may seem like a fortune to some but the reality is a decent house in a decent town is at least that price up here in connecticut (400 G's)

 

I don't know about anyone else but I'd easily still have to work

      Relatives still coming to see him..... guess they want to be in the know as soon as he hits the $2500 wk for life.

      Surely the most important news of any day ...

        I don't know about anyone else but I'd easily still have to work

            Brand new homes which one is behind me , brand new and nobody lives in it for $243,000 , which is high

            because their's another brand new home for $200,000 and it all depends on where you want to live .

            This area quiet , clean , friendly and neighbors minds their own business .....rarely see them ....

             You can go to another town where you can buy new homes for $100,000 - $200,000 ........again depends

              on where you want to live ........6 miles away you can go and buy homes for $500,000 - $1,000,000 or more .

              Around here , prices vary ......2 and 3 miles away one area $350,000 - $450,000 ......second area $350,000 - $550,000

              And the homes aren't super huge only when you go into $600k and over ......

            I am just going to say this. Even people living on government benefits and who are not in their right mind get lucky sometime. It is unfortunate that this man did not first share his fortune with the trusted legal guardian, who could have set up a trust for him at a local bank, thereby avoiding that $14,000 gouging and protected him from the vultures that circled him in that month.

            I do not think the criticism of him is racist since folks slammed Leroy Fick, that Michigan man who won $2M and still collected food stamps. But I do find the criticism a bit heartless. For goodness sake, the man has mental issues and some people want to throw him to the wolves or in jail. Put yourself in his shoes. Would you not want someone to help you and not take advantage of you?

            Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

            The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                  Why is anyone criticizing the winner? Do you people not have any level of reading comprehension? He is mentally ill and can't make proper choices for himself, that's why he was living in an assisted living facility. Scamming the government? For what, the $54 dollars a month? You who criticize him aren't grasping the fact that we aren't dealing with someone who understands normal reasoning. He doesn't have the mental capacity that you, supposedly, have. Good grief.

                    This is a sad example that money can't buy everything. I'm sure the way his family (the leeches, that is) saw it, he's too mentally unfit to properly appreciate the money. But their use of it, even in abusing his mental incapacities, was a bit short sighted. What I don't understand is- how was he able to even deal with all the opening of bank accounts, getting cashiers checks, etc.? I don't view that as do-able activities for someone with such mental capacities. BTW people- Paranoid Schizophrenic is not the same as retarded. He still knew what he was doing- the difference is, he didn't have the wherewithall to view it in terms of the future, of planning for himself in realistic ways- realism/reality; the things he can't fully comprehend and thus why he's in an asssisted living facility. From some very unfortunate personal experience, I can assure you that many older, mentally handicapped people requiring in-treatment care are indeed abandoned by family members who don't see a point in making an effort because the person's mind is so far gone they won't appreciate it, or so the family assumes. So perhaps, if I may play Devil's Advocate for a moment, the family sawthe situation as someone without the capacity to handle large sums of money being rightfully taken advantage of since he wouldn't know the difference anyway. Still messed up, wrong and rightfully illegal.

                      Can you read?  The gentleman is "mentally ill".  Diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia  People wanting so much to win the lottery have utterly become unglued in their thinking.   Reasearch the illness and you might become aware of how it works and not come off sounding  STUPID.

                      You seem to have mental illnesses and that is why you come at me in this fashion. Take your Prozac pills and once your mind calms down come ask me why I posted what I did instead of assuming things about me.

                      That money's gone fo ever

                          This is one of the main reasons I say I will always take the annunity if I hit big instead of a lump sum.  That way I would have "money for life"

                              Well, the problem STARTS with these assisted-living home's administrators.  Most of their employees see several of their "patients/charges" at these next-door, taxis, thrift stores, AND lottery retailers buying tickets on a DAILY/WEEKLY basis.  Then these employees/administrators don't care enough to do anything about this HUGE abuse to income tax payers/government/patient!

                              Ahem, it is good to read, again, how government assigned "multi-client financial conservators," way under-care for their charges!  Now Ramsey has a new one, since this judge fired the last one for 'non-oversight' or whatever way-too-late reason ... will the new financial conservator be helpful, or the same old, same old: "I don't care to work/become involved" career methodology?
