    All the states in this country that have lottery are the only ones making money.They keep ripping people off so bad like Tennessee till you dont want to play anymore.As far as I care they can shut this one down too.Every one pours their extra coins into the lottery,hopeing to make some extra money,it doesnt go to the places that need it the most like stores,gas,eating out,,etc.And still keep losing to the lottery,so we all lose and the lottery keeps winning.

      Scott Walker is a republican not a democrat.

      Yes, I know that.

      But what's your point?

        Saw this in our state paper:  Minnesota will lose approximately $2.3 Million in profits from weekly lottery sales..

        (And next week, 22,000 freshly laid-off state workers will begin collecting unemployment)...

        Etc. Etc. Etc.

        Ahhhh, the sticker-shock!!

          What about those people who buy the same numbers for powerball or megamillions or others and those numbers are drawn before the shutdown is lifted? suicide? lawsuit? fainting?

          God forbid

            The next time you want to insult us about how stupid we are, please make sure to spell everything right.

            Otherwise you look like a big dummy.

            Thanks ever so much.

            Oh , Rdgrnr the man made a good point about the Civics part , but I don't think you guys are stupid ,you     almost always make good sense until, you starts to talk about Democrats.No NoGreen laugh

              The point (insult) he was trying to make, Louise, was that there was only one person here (besides him) that had the intellect to understand Civics or possessed basic reading and comprehension skills.

              Then, while lecturing us on that, he spelled a very simple word wrong.

              He  made himself look like a big dummy.

              I only commented on it.

               

              And you know I'm always fair with the democrats, Louise. Yes Nod

                They wait until the offices re-open and then go claim their prize. Same as when the offices close for a 3-day weekend.
