    The Men Who Want AIDS

    Many of you know where I stand on this kind of thing, but I thought I'd get reactions from some of you...

    That's a weird story but understandable given his situation. Wanting AIDS to get the perks which give you a better life, its like harsh welfare, "You want benefits? - get AIDS so we don't have to pay for too long".

    There are no limits to what people will do to not have to work.

    If these morons were female then they would only need to produce a welfare baby. Sad that many will do destructive things simply to get on the dole. Liberals tell us that this is quite rare, and I hope that it is, but it is still quite crazy.

    Yeah ... no. Most of these people don't have an education, are mentally ill or have been involved with gangs/prostitution against their will (had they had the economic stability to even have a will). Given that this guy is young, black and gay, it's very possible that his parents kicked him out of his house before he graduated high school. He probably doesn't have a marketable skill to his name.

    Believe me, if this guy had that option to even get a job, he'd have taken it. Drugs and HIV got to him first though.

    Yeah, no. The guy is willfully refusing to take his meds to make himself worse so he can get more benefits and not have to work. "Marketable skill" is nothing more than have a strong back, will use for $$$ if you do not feel entitled to something. You cannot defend this behavior with the Victim Card and expect to be taken seriously.

    What a horrible, sad, story. It's not much different from people who want to be, or at least appear to be, disabled in order to get Social Security Disability, or even third world beggars who mutilate their children in order to make them more pathetic and thus more able to beg.

    I find this sad, really. For most of us, we wouldn't be happy with just a roof over our heads and a warm, safe place to sleep. We want more from life. And we're willing to work toward it. "Plan to work, and work the plan," so to speak. But some are not willing to work a plan . . . or even work. Especially once one has started a downward spiral fueled by a crappy education (non-existent sometimes), poverty, dysfunctional families, etc. No tools. They have no tools.

    For those (a small percentage, if the truth were known and we could reach many of them), we need to just pony up. It's what civilized and conscientious people do.

    A warm, safe place to sleep. Enough food and water. And a few lifelines strewn about to offer a way out for those who are looking for one.

    I have no idea if the stories in the article are true. If they are - if people have to stoop to getting a deadly disease in order to get some help getting out of poverty in our society - that's a sad indictment of our society.

    We need better outreach programs.

    I don't think most people want to live on handouts; but if they have no way to gain skills needed for a job, what are they supposed to do?

    Youth that are on the streets don't have a lot of options.
