It appears to me that the overall mood of this thread is NOT so much that he won the money but rather WHY would he win over ME? Come on ADMIT IT!
I think it might be safe to say some of you, not to mention any names, but some of you feel, deep in your heart because you are a better citizen are more deserving of the cash than he. It just doesnt seem fair to you. RIGHT! RIGHT! ABSOLUTELY!
I think the real question on people's minds when someone who is of this nature wins is WHY would LIFE,FATE, GOD allow a class 3 sex offender to, not only get away with such crimes, but get out of prison to perhaps do the same again, but on TOP of it WIN THE FRIGGIN LOTTERY of $10 million dollars and I have to live a friggin life of poverty and I have done so much more good in this world than he? AM I RIGHT HERE ! It almosts makes you wonder doesn't it? And it SHOULD make you wonder!
Its not uncommon these days to see the real wicked prosper.
I for one absolutely grin with glee at the very mention that someone wicked prospered in this world! It goes to show me that life is random! And the BIBLE is true!
You see I for one do not compare myself with others like SOME of you are doing!
I do not count myself any better or worse than anyone else. I simply have my OWN life and my OWN life is what I concern myself with, NOT with some LEVEL 3 SEX OFFENDER.
I could care a less if he won 800 BILLION dollars!
Unlike some people who I might assume or presume would get down on their knees to have even one 10th of the money he won, NOW that is SICK! GREED! Why cant you be happy with what you have?
I don't give the thing any more thought than needed, WHO FRIGGIN cares, its the lottery!
Let me say that again
ITS THE LOTTERY a game of CHANCE!
Here are some other people who I could care a-less if they win millions,
Bill Gates, Paul Allen, Steven Jobs, The friggin Queen of England, A murderer, a rapist, or a dog thief!
Some are acting like spoiled little envious brats who act like they are better deserving and should have been the winner! You're not! deal with it! Where did you get such an idea that MORALS have anything to do with winning in a RANDOM chance game? WHERE did friggin morals ever come into play in a game of chance!
GET OVER YOUR SELF!
You have still so much more to learn about life!
The reality and truth of this whole story is this;
NO ONE DESERVES TO WIN MORE THAN THE NEXT! IT COULD BE YOU NEXT!
The story should show you instead this;
IF a sex offender can win HELL MAYBE I can too!
It should give you HOPE rather than self defeating disillusions about life! and a puffed up ego about yourself. come down to earth people! Its the LOTTERY!
The other day I won $5 on a scratcher and you know what ? NOT FOR one second did I think "Wow you know maybe someone more deserving in this world than me should have won this! Maybe I shouldn't have won! So i took my ticket back up to the counter and got my $5 bucks, i put it back into the scratcher machine got another ticket and PRESTO I won $50 fifty more!
I thought wow! I won $50 cool!
I never thought someone more deserving should have won!
The guy won PERIOD! Maybe one day you will too!
The real sick people are people who somehow have come to a conclusion that they are someone more deserving! NO ONE is more deserving , you should just be lucky you have your health and that you are alive! That alone is a JACKPOT WIN!
You are a bunch of GAMBLERS and since someone brought up the BIBLE in GOD's eyes no better than the class 3 sex offender! We're all sinners, no sin is greater than the next!
Maybe the guy repented of his sin! Which makes him BETTER in some respects than some who havent repented for their sins!
And since the BIBLE was brought up in this thread I'd like to put something straight!!
NO ONE GOES TO HELL BECAUSE OF THEIR SIN! According to the scripture, it isnt SIN that sends one to hell. its not accepting the one sent from God JESUS CHRIST who according to scripture paid for our sin!!
Take it up with GOD or your CONGRESSMAN if it bothers you so much that a sinner won the lottery! Arent we all sinners! no ones perfect!
If you dont like the fact the the guy won, write your friggin congressman but dont go thinking you are better deserving to win!
And for those of you who somehow have it in your mind that I am being crule, or unjust about the whole thing, I'm not! I am telling you straight out that YOU ARE NO more DESERVING than a rapist,murderer.
The guy did his time and under the USA law has ever friggin right to win! I never saw it writen where a sex offender cant win a game of chance!
WELCOME TO AMERICA PEOPLE the land of the OPPORTUNITY!!
For those who think I am somehow condoning the mans sickness and degenerate behavior, get real, you are WRONG! I would never want what he did to happen to anyone.
I am simply stating a united states legal fact and if you believe in GOD a spiritual scriptural FACT at that!
Get over your "self assumed good self" You are not all that good! At best AVERAGE! LIKE THE REST OF US!
From the tone of this thread it appears some of you think you are better than the Pope or Mother Teresa!
THE MAN won leave him alone! There is NOTHING ON EARTH YOU CAN DO!
If you do think you are more deserving then why dont you pray for the guy that he might use the money WISELY!
Not like our good rightoious sinless friend Jack Whiteker! Who by the way gave up his marraige for strip joints and high class poker games and more gambling where he leaves 1/2 million dollars in his hummer for someone to break into and steal after his 315 mil win!
Get over your self!
I cant stand people who think they are better deserving!
I love the humble! They dont make a stink about it when someone wins!
And lastly "Hey sex offender I hope you somehow read this and do something good with the money!
Sorry life has been so rotten to you, you were probably molested yourself as a child like most child molesters were or raped who knows! Sorry that happened to you. Hope the money helps you get your life back together!
GOD BLESS YOU!
