This man, James Verone, robbed a bank for one dollar. Why only one dollar? Because he knew that in prison he could get the medical care he could not afford with his part time salary as a convenience store clerk. He was approved for food stamps, but they did little to help his finances. Between his back problems, carpel tunnel, and arthritis, he simply couldn’t handle the pain any longer.
On June 9th, he sent a letter to his local paper, the Gaston Gazette, that stated: “When you receive this a bank robbery will have been committed by me. this robbery is being committed by me for one dollar. I am of sound mind but not so much sound body.”
He then took a cab to the RBC Bank, and handed the teller a note asking for one dollar and medical attention. He quietly took a seat in the lobby and waited for police to arrive.
Since Verone only stole one dollar, he was only charged with larceny. His bail, which he doesn’t plan to pay is set at $2,000, reduced from the normal $100,000. He’s scheduled to see a doctor this Friday, and hopes to get foot surgery, back surgery and to have a protrusion on his check treated.   
To me, this is the perfect example of how disturbingly corrupt and unjust our health care system has become under HMO’s. For this man, or any person for that matter, feels that he needs to be imprisoned just to see a doctor, is ridiculous. 
This is exactly what I hate about America. Why is it that you can buy an entire house with money you don’t have, but still can’t apply for health care if you don’t meet the requirements? That’s messed up.

So we’re now at a time where people will LITERALLY commit a crime, granted it was tiny scale but a crime regardless, JUST for the sake of getting medical attention because it’s THAT expensive.

Oh my.

Sad but true. When life is so expensive you have to do this to feel better while being imprisoned, theres too many things wrong.

They turned RNA into an anti-virus program. That is amazing.

Let me restate this in case it didn’t sink in the first time

Researchers physically DELETED ALL TRACES of the HIV virus from a human cell.

ALL OF IT.

IF YOU ARE NOT EXCITED ABOUT THAT I DON’T THINK YOU KNOW WHAT HIV IS

Here is the original paper.  My computer at work is currently being an ass.
( http://www.hivdent.org/_research_/2014/PNAS-2014-Hu-1405186111.pdf.)

 “Our results also demonstrate, for the first time to our knowledge, that Cas9/gRNA genome editing can be used to immunize cells against HIV-1 infection. The preventative vaccination is independent of HIV-1 strains diversity because the system targets genomic sequences regardless of how the viruses enter the infected cells.”

 “Here, we found that LTR-directed gRNA/  Cas9 eradicates the HIV-1 genome and effectively immunizes target cells against HIV-1 reactivation and infection with high specificity and efficiency. These properties may provide a viable path toward a permanent orsterileHIV-1 cure, and perhaps provide a means to eradicate and vaccinate against other pathogenic viruses.”

This is beyond awesome.  Not only does it cure HIV infection, it immunizes other cells.  They believe it can be applied to other viral infections where the virus integrates into the host’s genome.

Lets think about this for a second.  HIV was first confirmed in 1959, retroactively, by examining the deceased’s preserved blood.  Between 1960 and 1980, HIV and AIDS are both relatively unknown, with many cases only confirmed retroactively by symptoms or studying the deceased years after their death.

In 1980, we have “Patient Zero” in the USA.  This is when HIV/AIDS became publicly known.

1980.  It is now 2014.  34 years.  It took us only 34 years, from widespread knowledge to this first major step in a cure.  34 years.  Just slightly longer than a generation we have fought HIV to this extent.

And we are only going to get better at it. 

Hey good news for mankind :>
