$87+ Million after the Federal Confiscation !

Sun Smiley

I will take it !

Pennsylvania needs another big winner !

US Flag

IN other words its B.S.. !

WHY?

Because our crooked government gets a "DOUBLE CUT" of the pie...!

Once before it goes into the collective pool and another cut before its actually handed to the winner...

          someone from LP should win, and then  post the ticket here.   10X  promotion still there,   all play powerplay

          If I would I would tell everyone here as soon as I could, but I would not try to scan it onto my computer. Remember the guy who burned his ticket up trying to print his name on it?

              OK ..... so I spent $4 this week on the lottery ..... Powerball to be exact ...... and I have picked out 2 Rolls Royces that I would like to have (so that people will tell me that I will go broke if I win) ...... but I am still wearing the really old clothes that my wife has threatened to burn ..... by the way ..... the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, and my grandmother was 90 and "saving for my old age" ..... a few indulgences will not send me to the poor house, I am more frugal than you can imagine ...............

              $87+ Million after Feds "spread the wealth" ............ I will claim it right away and there will be no press ........... I really do have a place or 2 to hide ........... I have not heard anything about the last big winner from our area ........... so I will be like the movie - catch me if you can !

              I always wish the best to all, but .................. I want me to win !

              Look out ....... this coservative is going GREEN ............. with money ! Cool

                  October 2006 $360 million jackpot won in Oregon - but that was the last time a Powerball Jackpot was won in Oregon - it's about time for another win for this state :)

                    I'm easy. You guys keep the jackpot. I'll take the second prize with the 10x powerplay. About 1.4 after taxes. That's all I need.

                          I've got a bunch of tickets for tonight.  I'm in one pool that has 10 tickets(15 people), another pool that has 75 tickets(15 people), the pool I run has 8 tickets(13 people), my wife and I have a set of 2 tickets we bought, and I have a ticket of my own with Powerplay.  I just realized that's a total of 96 tickets I've got a hand in.  I can't wait for the drawing!

                            Maybe the winner who complains about "confiscation" should move to Dafur.

                            They don't pay taxes in Dafur.   Absolutely none.

                            Of course, in Dafur, if somebody decides to kill you and take all your money, there's no infrastructure to arrest them.   The criminal is just the "next rich guy," until someone kills him.

                            No cops.   No ambulances.  No libraries.  No roads.  No taxes.  No schools.   No clean water.   No laws.  No government.   You can keep it all for as long as you live, which may not be very long, but, hey, what's more important, your country or your money?

                            With that much money, one could easily take a one way ticket to nirvana.  Dafur, that's the place!

                              i definitely agree with your post.

                               

                              i think people forget the reason why state lotteries were formed in the first place. lotteries were meant to be ANOTHER FORM OF TAX/ANOTHER SOURCE OF REVENUE for the government to pay for social services.

                              that has always been the case for thousands of years. first recorded form of a lottery was recorded in china about 4000yrs ago. A warlord devised a lottery similar to today's lottery to raise money to fight his wars.
