WTF!!!!!! ARE YOU FOR REAL? DO NOT MAKE THIS ABOUT RACE OR POLITICS!!!!!!!First you do not SPEAK for ALL African Americans.  And By the way I am an conservative and I am African American... you need to get a life & stop playing the RACE card.... who ever the winner is spent $9.00 that's all not hundreds or thousands of dollars $9.00... 

We do not know the race of the winner/s & even if they are White SO WHAT!!!!! they bought the tickets & won get over it!!!!!!

Also there was a recent Mega Million Jackpot winner from Georgia named Marcia Adams who by the way is African American  you do not hear White American crying the race card because she spent $2.00 on a ticket & won.

Take your racist comments else where.....

I am a black conservative republican. So I better start ducking these bombs that are being launched as well.

 

I am so sick and tired of the tired cliches and racial epithets. Do we not understand the concept of astronomical odds? A person can play the same set of numbers in 10 lifetimes and those numbers never come for them to win a jackpot.

 

That's why we work and save and invest and only risk spare change on a dream. Sorry to those who have all their eggs in the proverbial basket.

    Perdue I totally agree with you... As a fellow Christian I do know better and I should not have fallen or responded to that post.....

    You didn't fall.

    You are human with human emotions.

    If no one responded I would be in paranoidville right now swearing that the invasion of the body snatchers was real and those jokers didn't deem me important enough to do me a pod. lol

            Too true Rad. I'll go to bed tonight with 1 to 175 Million odds just like I'll wake up in the morning with 1 to 175 Million odds.


            On a side note, I think I better give up smoking, that's an extra $3 a day I can save for retirement or towards my kids college.

              Perhaps you're right...

              I am mad and venting.

              I am not trying to say that ALL white people are racist or that ONLY white people

              win the lottery...this is obviously not the case.

              I am just expressing my feelings on another wealthy area/demographic of the country hitting

              the jackpot with the sole winning ticket.

              There are many people out here hurting very bad and needed this money.

              Anybody can play and win, true, but to see another (most likely) rich white person

              win is a little nauseating.

              Hey hawkeye90,

              Pleast don't be offended by this posting.

              I ran across it the other day while surfing the internet.

              I've posted it as many places as I possibly could.

              Why? Because it is uplifting when we uplifting and it reminds us of a very basic principle of existance and success that we all know to be true. Now run your race and win-win-win!!!

               

              "What you think upon grows. Whatever you allow to occupy your mind you magnify in your life. Whether the subject of your thought be good or bad, the law works and the condition grows. Any subject that you keep out of your mind tends to diminish in your life, because what you do not use atrophies. The more you think of grievances, the more such trials you will continue to receive; the more you think of the good fortune you have had, the more good fortune will come to you."

                Some times that's just how the ball rolls.

                There's also a good posibility that the winner might even be an 18-year old Hispanic or Asian teenager employed at the store, we'll just have to wait and see.

                But I hope who ever won, keeps their mouth shut and handles their new wealth responsibly, some folks spent a lot of money pushing someone into the 1%, please do not waste it. 

                Would not surprise me if the next winner is some old grandmother well past retirement age that had to get a door greeter job at the local Wal-mart to make ends meet.

                These things always come full circle.

                I guess.  We'll have to wait and see.

                Whoever won is probably already well off...Just like the putnam avenue hedge fund winnners were.

                There's always next time though to keep the dream alive.

                  Since we're all GAMBLERS here, does any one want to look into their crystal ball and hazard a guess as to how high this next jackpot will build?

                   

                  A true conspiracy theorist would predict a few large jackpots to kick off this year and sell people on the idea that all jackpots will be huge and worth the $2 play - lol.

                  Any takers?

                      I know we're on the same page. I was suggesting both you and I have to duck from these grinades of hostility and ignorance.

                       

                      I think what we need is an LP jackpot winner to make this REAL to all and sundry - lol. Any volunteers?

                        Yes.....

                        The next jackpot will be $342 Million and the check will have my name on it.

                        I will receive the annuity and move to a country that has EuroMillions and become a resident.

                        I intend to continue playing the lottery and winning huge jackpots in the USA and the EuroMillions country.

                          This is Lottery Post, not the Huffington Post .................. posted by an obvious minority racist

                          As for me, Congrats to the Winner/s ......... wish you only the best, no matter who you are ...........

                          I'm no racist. However...

                          In the not too distant future the only MINORITY racists left in the U.S.A. will 

                          be whites. Yes, you are GOING to be become the minority in a couple decades, like it

                          or not. I'm not saying ALL whites are racist but most racists are WHITE.

                          And to all you other racist white people out there Obama WILL win another

                          4 years and still be YOUR PRESIDENT...like it or not. 

                          Follow your own advice and quit whining (repubs and tea partiers)

                          this is not the 1950's anymore.

                              I bet that $500M to $600M is totally not out of the question this year. :)

                              Imagine managing a CVO of $300M+ The interest on it alone would be far more than anyone needs in a year!
