And you call ME delusional??  I'd love for you to come to Miami, Los Angeles, Washington DC

and tell everyone standing in line on election day how LAZY they are simply because

they are voting for Obama. Mad

Well...Hows all the hope n change working out for ya ??   that 860 Billion dollar bailout..boy that sure kept our unemployment rate below 8% as VERBALLY  promised almost 3 years ago by the current President Obama.....It sure made jobs abundant and life good..I know the housing market sure recovered faster here in Florida because of it !!!

        I'm not black or white. but just a question. if the president was say white(bush) were you and would you disrespect him as you do president Obama. you can't make change when when everyone is against you and wants you to fail because of your race. I won't bother to comment anymore on this because its like trying to run up a slick hill in crocs. tiring and won't get you anywhere. america's view on minorities have changed little since 1960.

          Congrats to people in Rhode Island. I hope they use the money wisely. And probabyl white too. But thats not the point. The point is it seems like , that state of NC has a cloud over its head. When was the last time someone from NC won it? It seems that its paraody in the lottery system . It's always someone from the north or the midwest.  Maybe i am hating on that , but not really.   People do win here and there for me doesn't count.  Aslong has i have been playing no one , has won the big pb or mm in the state of nc always the north or midwest. If anyone from NC , please give me your input on this.  Please let someone from NC hit the big one ( lottery gods) . I would feel alot better if my state NC finally gets one.  Is NC cursed from someone getting big in the lottery.

            Well Hawkeye90, that certainly is an interesting post you have there...Glad to see you explained your position....lets see if we can assist your theories some: 1 winner from Newport, R.I...yeup, you're right  and NOBODY should ever win who lives OR VISITS Newport,R.I. There has only been a couple of shared powerball winners from 2 different states just a few times over the last 5 - 10 years. Looking at the winners lists  of the POWERBALL & MEGAMILLIONS..wow, guess what???, they are from all over the country and some from even ANOTHER country..that definitely smacks of racism and something being wrong  !!  Gotta be a conspiracy somewhere cause I didnt win with a 1 in 175 million odds
            okay...back to the next section....where was I ?  oh yes..."the racist country part".....lets see...lets say you are black and I am white, we disagree on a point of view liiiiiiiiiiike welfare.....how do we solve the bad parts of it ? Keep giving and giving to those that choose not to try to get ahead, that have the ability to work but don't, that are lazy and want to live off the system?  Why surrrrrrre, lets continue to support them..HECK, lets do one better, lets have a lottery system on who HAS to work and who doesn't.....But what if your chosen to be one of the workers and your a minority???...how is that fair??  Its gotta be rigged because the lottery knew you HAD to have the "worker" ticket.......Well now how  to solve that issue?? IT is gonna be ANOTHER ISSUE....We will have to blame that on race again cause someone must have found out you didn't live in Newport R.I.
              Next issue...OBAMA.....well, I am not rich and have to work.....so let's seeee which race part of OBAMA do I hate ???????   His white half or his dark half ??  After all, his mom was caucasian and his father African......We said I was white right?, for "the racist country"arguments sake lets say I don't like his fathers half but I do like his mothers half....Well (scratching head) which decision when he speaks or gives presidential orders am I racially against ? The white ones or the black ones ?.....hmmmm?? (scratching head again)  I can't tell the difference but I am sure you can. I will gladly appreciate your input.
               ALL WHITE Tea Party and republicans parties are racists?  Absolutely...No doubt about it, that Herman Cain is a big racist and so is congressman Allen West in my home state of FL......Herman (  he appears to be black) came from MONEY right?....hold on a sec,,,,NOPE his dad worked 2 jobs..OKAY, what about WEST ?(he sorta appears to be black too)..hmmmm? retired LT. Colonel after serving his country everyday for a minimum 20 years.......Well Gosh darn, we can't use them fellas cause after all, we DONT want to get you" started about how racist the ALL WHITE Tea party and republican parties are" 
                 AND last but not least (drumroll please) born out of slavery and genocide......Could you or I solve  or improve their mentality 150 - 250 years ago???...I can't but then again my( racist white) relatives fought on the side of the north in the civil war.....ahhh sh*t, how can that be right?  Waaaaait, the north won the war, so the north had to be all black or democrats.....after all there couldn't have been any republicans like President Lincoln up in that part of the country.......WAIT..WAIT..wait a second lets see what Wikipedia says about good ole ABE....oh crap, look at what it says,"as the leader of the moderate faction of the REPUBLICAN PARTY,Lincoln found that his policies and personality blasted from all sides"..OHHH CRAP HE WAS A REPUBLICAN TOOO.....Hmmm, so what happened to ABE....oh yeah, he was killed by John Wilkes Booth....wait, Booth must have been black cause after all, you said it before about all republicans and tea party folks are white....oh crap !!!  he was southern supporter AND  WHITE....so here's a southern supporting white guy and he smokes a northern white republican.....Somethings wrong, waaaaait, I know, maybe...JUST MAYBE they were from Newport,R.I..... lets check shall we ??...nope, neither was.....well shoot there goes that conspiracy....   
                Now as far as the indians go???,,, well shoot I cant change that situation either but I can be free to vote for who I want and live where I want....Maybe theres another country to choose that isn't so racist,,,,, I know ...RUSSIA, they are pretty fair and squared away over there or maybe China, cause their humans rights record is the best in the world or maybe Syria, course theres Germany or maybe Greece, they have great economic conditions there and their right to having less work and more vacations and that great medical system has proven to be waaay above the United States.
              I sure hope this discussion worked out for you..it did for me..I feel much better..."Had to get this off my chest".........Best of luck to ya...Have a great day  See Ya!

            Lol!

            It was long but very entertaining and worth the read.

            Bottom line - the lottery is random and over time some OLD, some YOUNG, some WHITE, some BLACK, some MALE, some FEMALE, some who play regularly, some who only played that one time will win.

            Deal with it. The Jackpot started at $40m and looking for a another victim to splurge on. Will that be you?

                  This website is surely attracting the craziest of the crazy. Now someone is claiming that there's a conspiracy to let white Americans to win jackpots.

                  Dude needs his head examined. USA is more than 60% white so its obvious that white Americans will win the lottery more often if other things are held constant. 

                  Ugh maybe Todd needs to have an aptitude test for all potential members and if you're too dense then you can't get in. 

                  I enjoy the struggle between the Liberals and Conservatives that happens in this website. Its healthy mostly. 

                  Someone in RI has good problem and I'm happy for them.

                  That money's gone fo ever

                      Amen.

                      Obama is trying everything he can to make everyone happy.

                      He simply can't please everyone. 

                      White American's view Minorities very poorly. 

                      Hispanics are the new blacks. They can't build a southern border

                      fence along mexico fast enough for these racist republicans and tea partiers.

                      I just have to wonder if it was canada and not mexico and poor whites

                      were coming across instead of mexicans if white americans would be so

                      racist and against illegal immigrants.

                        NC is only about 65% white. Not enough for the lottery to ensure a white

                        person in the state would come out the winner.

                        It has to be at least 80% or more white like Newport Rhode Island. 

                        Or at least it sure seems like it. 

                        If someone in NC ever hits, just watch. They'll be white.

                          Just crunched a few numbers, say the PB CVO continues to average roughly 62% and records continue to fall this year.



                          Jackpot of $400M = $248M CVO = $161.2M after 35% Federal Taxes

                          Jackpot of $500M = $310M CVO = $201.5M after 35% Federal Taxes

                          Jackpot of $600M = $372M CVO = $241.8M after 35% Federal Taxes

                          Jackpot of $700M = $434M CVO = $282.1M after 35% Federal Taxes

                          Jackpot of $800M = $496M CVO = $322.4M after 35% Federal Taxes

                           

                          It's definitely going to be an exciting year for lotto players. :)

                            Here's a bottom line for you:  If everyone had good-paying jobs and the economy was in great shape again, and the country was moving its way out of debt, then nobody would be screaming in racist anger when someone of the opposite race won, because there wouldn't be so much jealosy and desperation out there.

                            Jeez lousie, if playing the lottery (or learning who the winner is or where the winning ticket was sold) is going to give you so much grief, then for goodness sake, do something else in your spare time other than playing the lottery.

                             

                            Check the State Lottery Report Card
                            What grade did your lottery earn?

                            Help eliminate computerized drawings!
