    Here's what I posted to that news site:

    They want 1/4 of the winnings? After rejecting him, an adult man now 29 years old? Give them nothing, now that they're being greedy and ungrateful.

    I would withdraw the offer to pay their mortgage. They no longer deserve it. Do you think they would be grateful for their son erasing their mortgage? Fat chance. They would bad-mouth their son for not giving them more, as they're essentially doing now. And if he did give them the 1/4, they'd be no more grateful, since they obviously feel it's their right & due.

    Thumb your nose at them, dude! They can no longer hurt you, and they would be laughed out of any court where they filed a claim against your winnings. They've reaped what they've sown.

    He's a lot more generous than I would be. If I won the lotto, everyone I know would get the same amount. $0. That way, they can't argue that the other person received more.
    If God wanted me to share, he would have made me a nice person.icon_twisted.gif

    Wow the parents can fuck themselves. I hope he hasn't given them anything yet and doesn't. He doesn't owe them shit just as now that he is an adult they don't owe him shit.

    If he won that much $$$, he needs to do everything through an attorney, particularly with his family....money and sex changes everything in a relationship....His offer to pay off their mortgages and a tidy sum for each, is beyond generous. What they did to him was child abuse.... it should be a one time only offer, take it or leave it. I would sever that tie upon payment, or rejection, and relocate and change numbers or take a different name and ID, but "disappear". The sad story of Lottery winners failing in life and ending up broke is almost the norm... and the people and (Charity?)groups looking for their piece of your $$$ is legendary...hide the money away, invest it, do anything anonymously for donations and only in $500 or $1000 pledges, never more.
    His generosity toward his parents...his abusers...is well intended, but will not stop the abuse....and this is some sort of "blood money" guilt payment for his conscience...do it and be done with them, forever.

    If I were this kid, I wouldn't give his ignorant, abusive parents one penny of his lottery winnings. He should tell both of them to go fuck themselves. This kid would be wise to use these winnings to pay off all outstanding debts and than sock it away in the bank or in an IRA account or in CDs.

    Why do conservative straight people think they are heroes because they happened to get pregnant and have a baby? Any animal can reproduce... being a good parent is a different matter, and these people clearly were not good parents -- they were abusive parents who would be in prison if there were any real justice.
    Conservatives really should not have children... they are clearly unfit to be good parents, unless their children turn out exactly like their 1950s fantasy.
