Pick4:

Everything you said is your opinion.  I disagree with most of it. 

Also, you should consider making paragraphs when you write, because I am finding it very difficult to read everything you write when it is all mushed together, and I end up skipping large sections of it as a result.  (Just some constructive criticism.)

    i'd love to see a lottery in mississippi but they'd have the same problems NC is having,plus mississippi has casinos so between the church and the casino blocking it i'd say it would be a long long time before they get one if they do...

      As far as I'm concerned, gambling comes under the same umbrella as alcohol and cigarettes. Why aren't those religious zealots out there banning those items from the state too!!!! Why are they so hell-bent on lottery?????

      Frankly, they are so blinded by religion that they really fail to see what's really happening!  NC already have a lottery!!!! They've had an underground lottery ever since I've been in diapers, and I'm waaaay over 50.

      So, while religious legislative zealots are still running around preaching hell, fire and brimstone, -- billions will be funneled to Virginia, South Carolina, Tennessee and North Carolina's underground lottery system which is doing a booming business. In fact, the underground is getting ready to cross into the Pick4 business. They're growing -- thanks to religious backlash.

      So whether it becomes legal or not, I'm having myself a ball...and just might consider writing a book on North Carolina's underground lottery. I've already written Govenor Easley.

        That is a terrible thing to say. I couldn't disagree with you stronger. That is way over-the-top, and not a good way to deal with someone who disagrees with you.




        You don't live here in NC and see what's going on. Thank you.

          And that's why I have no more too say on the matter besides there are members in here that seem too share my opinion so I'm not alone.Anyway Sorry for "mushing" everything together just read it in sections if you think something was overlooked I've been out of school for 20 yrs so paragraph writing isn't something I do on a regular basis.

              Just press the Enter key every so often to break up your thoughts, and so that it's easier to read.  (Insert some blank spaces.)  No need to form perfect paragraphs, just trying to offer a tip to make it easier to read what you're saying.

              I understand that there are plenty of members who have no problem bashing religious people over the head because they disagree with them.  There are also several atheist members here, who make no bones about trashing religious people.  I feel sad for people who follow the secular media lead and bash religion, and just because these people are vocal in their disdain doesn't make me agree with them.

              This is a completely pro-lottery forum, so naturally most people here will disagree with the religious leaders who stand on their principles in opposing lotteries.  Many of these people will openly bash those religious leaders, but not everyone does this (thank goodness).  It is easy to bash someone who disagrees with you, but it is better to be respectful of them, and to win on the basis of a good argument, rather than besmirching the person.

                       The Plain fact remains like it or not there are some who do oppose the lottery. I think NC has a tough road to go if the even get a lottery. I was amazed that SC got one so anything is possible. But if they (NC) do not get one it will not mean the end of the world.

                            How about you "BOTH" know what's going on "EQUALLY" but just have different OPINIONS about it because based on your knowledge or research you came to different conclusions?

                              South Carolina got their lottery because it was put on the ballott for everyone to have a chance to vote their opinion.
                              The voters voted and the lottery was set in place.
