Wow...folks sure know how to ruin a feel-good story. Please stick to the story and leave this political crap out...the personal attacks and name-calling that inevitably follow are annoying.

      You call it political crap because you can't handle the truth. 

      And it was over with days ago with a friendly resolution anyway so why are you bringing it back up?

      I've read your recent posts saying how you can't wait to leave this country and go back to Zanzibar.

      Don't let the door hit ya in the ass on the way out.

      Buh-bye.

        Actually...if you took the time to read my posts correctly, you'd know my actual comment was that if (when???) I hit the lottery, moving to Zanzibar would be great.  My wife is from Zanzibar (I'm from New Jersey) and I fell in love with the place when I visited there for the first time 4 years ago.  I've never said anything remotely close to what you claim I said.  My Zanzibar comment was in response to other comments made by fellow posters about going far away when they win the lottery in order to avoid the leeches and sudden "friends".

        As for the political crap...as I said, we're here to talk about lottery-related stories, not politics. Folks have their political leanings I'm sure, but we are all united in terms of enjoying the lottery stories and dreaming about hitting the jackpot ourselves one day.  The problem with politics is that it almost always degenerates into name-calling and nastiness, which I don't particularly find enjoyable or beneficial.

That uh, thing you don't want anybody talking about?

            Here's what you said today:

            "...leave this political crap out...the personal attacks and name-calling that inevitably follow are annoying."

             

            Here's what you said on November 27, 2009:

            "some moron somehow decided President Obama was partially to blame for what happened at the Burlington Coat Factory. How stupid are you anyway?"

            Is that what you mean by personal attacks and name-calling? Is that what you find annoying?
