    I'm happy for the winners. I hope it brings joy to them and their families.
    When my aunt was here visiting I took her straight to the store to buy tickets. In Florida and California it always seems like the winner is a tourist or an illegal alien, so I figured it was a 50/50 chance she would win. Curses, foiled again.

    Not all states participate in Mega Millions just as not all states participate in Powerball. NJ has both.

    Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    There has to be some way "we (and by that I mean you " could start a lotto pool here on the board.

    The Marxist lottery, 'eh? I've heard it all now.

    I hope that one DUer realizes they made the argument for why the lottery shouldn't be legal talking about false hope and all. lol.


    I meant to buy a ticket and didn't. I don't usually buy a whole lot of tickets because I get aggravated at never winning. One time, I was like "Gambling's stupid, can I have another scratch off?" lol. Now, scratch offs are fun. I'm actually moving my fingers then.

    Think about that for a minute.....

    There were no winners at the drawing earlier this week.

    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    Dave Ramsey, who is hardly a commie, also thinks that lotteries are morally wrong and calls them a tax on the poor (Family Guy calls them a tax on stupid people).


    I don't agree with him, but I get the point he's making-poor people dream of an easy way out of poverty, and few ever win the lottery.
