I remember seeing Brad Duke on Lottery Changed My Life. Love the show, but I don't think I'll go on it after I win. I do believe in positive thinking. I think everyone that plays the lottery does too, some more than others or they wouldn't play in the first place. I've been keeping a lottery journal since 2008 with the jackpot analysis after taxes, dates and positive sayings. I have been reading the stories and posts here for the last few years and finally joined today. Here's my first post, wish me luck!

Welcome Mom, best of luck, enjoy your stay

Stay Positive, Believe and good things will come your way

      Here’s the total bill all you nice folks who pay taxes are footing for Obama’s Czars:

      $40,760,000 and in case you need help reading that, it’s 40 million 760 thousand dollars and it doesn’t include limo services, gym memberships and so on...

      Now, fellow business owners, tear the above apart. Find the flaws, the missing pieces, and let’s start spreading the news about what Obama’s Courtiers are costing us.

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      Lep

      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

         CoinToss,

          Every time, I learn more and read more, it gives me enough heartburn to last me three lifetimes. I remember a few acquintances of mine who actually BELIEVED in the man's credibility and what he can bring to the table. My but, they are silent now. 2 of them, I remember, enjoyed a beneficial employment before O's entry to the White House, unemployment snug them and now, they are singing different praises on how, they are worse off than beggars! They have gone from a sustainable income to nothing to write home about.

          My only question to them was,

          SATISFIED?! - They let their prejudices dictate whom they chose to vote for. I remember, 4 years ago, their response was...."About time, we voted for someone who looks like us" funny, now he does not even care about their economic dilemma.....How did that work out for them?

           We are in trouble, CoinToss, I am not denying that fact.

          Ok Coin Toss, I get you don't like Obama. Thats fine. You're entitled to your opinion. But quite a bit of that stuff you posted is more like tabloid/personal attack nonsense.

          *First President to apply for college aid as a foreign student, then deny he was a foreigner.

          This one was funny, I hadn't seen it before. This claim is from a fake AP news article citeing information released by Americans for Freedom of Information, a group that didn't exist at the time.  The college aid he supposedly received isn't given to undergraduate students, which is what he was at the time. Also the date on the supposed news report is April 1, 2009...

          *First President to have a social security number from a state he has never lived in.

          Another new one I hadn't seen before. In 1977 Obama got his first summer job at Baskin Robins, at the same time he applied for a social security number. When he applied his zip code was 96814, while the zip code for Danbury, CT was 06814. Since 9 is next 0 and we're talking about the days of manual typewriters it's easy to see how a clerk made a common typo mistake. Or the handwriting of a 15 year old left handed kid wasn't the most legible. Take your pick.

          *First President to preside over a cut to the credit-rating of the United States.

          By this logic John Boehner is the first Speaker of the House to preside over a cut to the credit rating and the Constitution gives power of the national purse to the House of Representatives, not the President. Also if you read the credit agencies reasoning their main issue was dysfunction of our political system, not our ability to pay our debts. And when you had elected congresspeople running around saying how defaulting on the debt wouldn't be such a bad thing I can't say I blame them.

          *First President to violate the War Powers Act.

          Sadly not the first, also sadly won't be the last.

          *First President to terminate America’s ability to put a man in space.

          This was actually an action put in place by the prior administration and while a sad day the Space Shuttle was a massive money pit that never met the economies of scale that were promised and the several attempts to create a replacement were also massive money pits that went wildly over budget before they were abandoned. However private industry is working to fill the void and here in the next few weeks the first cargo launch to the space station will be done by a private american company under NASA contract. This should be applauded, not sneered at.

          *First President to file lawsuits against the states he swore an oath to protect (AZ, WI, OH, IN).

          Not hardly the first administration to file suit against a state. Also the President swears an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, not any particular state.

          *First President to appoint 45 czars to replace elected officials in his office.

          Uh.... other then the President (and arguably the Vice President) there are no elected officials in the executive branch. Some positions require the advice and consent of the Senate, others do not. Also one of the main proponents of this complaint is Karl Rove who was himself Domestic Policy Czar for George W. Bush.

          *First President to golf 73 separate times in his first two and a half years in office.

          You are really going to attack the guy for a few hours of golf every other weekend? Also did you seriously add up the times spent golfing of every single prior President?

          *First President to win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing NOTHING to earn it.

          I thought the whole thing was kind of silly myself, though I'm not sure how this is his fault? He didn't nominate himself and had nothing to do with the selection process. IIRC anyone can be nominated by just about anybody.

          *First President to go on 17 lavish vacations, including date nights and Wednesday evening White House parties for his friends; paid for by the taxpayer.

          I believe that it was Ronald Reagan that said Presidents don't get vacations, they get a change of scenery. Obama was on "vacation" 61 days during his first 31 months in office. Yes Virginia, that's 2 days out of each month. At the same point in Bush 43's presidency he had spent 180 days on vacation at his ranch and Reagan had spent 112 at his home in California. Bill Clinton, on the other hand, had only taken 28 days. In fact by the time his 2 terms were over George W. Bush had spent 977 days either at Camp David or at home in Texas, 1/3rd of his time in office.

          *First President to have 22 personal servants (taxpayer funded) for his wife.

          Umm, the White House has quite a large professional staff of groundskeepers, cleaners, cooks, butlers, etc. Most of them are long term executive mansion staff and serve multiple administrations during their careers.

          *First President to keep a dog trainer on retainer for $102,000 a year at taxpayer expense.

          First she's dead and isn't on retainer for anyone. Second most of the dog's training was done at the initiation and expense of the Kennedy Family as the dog was a gift from them to the Obama children. Thirdly $102,000 was the trainers annual income from her dog training business, not what she was paid by the President. Not sure where you get taxpayer expense from except perhaps that as President he is paid a salary by the taxpayers?

          *First President to repeat the Holy Qur'and tells us the early morning call of the Azan (Islamic call to worship) is the most beautiful sound on earth.

          I actually agree with him, it is a beautiful sound. No idea what they are saying, but it sounds cool.

          *First President to take a 17 day vacation.

          George W. Bush spent the entire month of August 2001 "on vacation" in Texas.

            Babel,

            Nice try on the SSAN but even though things were done manually they checked a little closer than you allude to.

            OK, who paid for his college?

            So you don't think it odd that the junior Senator with the least experience gets installed by Soros elected?

            I livr in Illinois, and in 2002, on the heels of 911, we startd seeing these Obama political yard signs. Not being in Chicago, we had never heard of the guy, and the general consensus was, "Fat chance, Osama (Bin Laden), Obama, this gvuy doesn't have a prayer."

            Bit of course in Illinois, any one running for any office only needs the Chicago and Cook County yellow dog Democratsto get elected, the rest of us don't exist.

            In the long run he is out to destroy the country and anbyone who votes for him is an accomplice.

              Lol, SSAN? That kind of prooves my point. I just find it much more likely to chalk it up to there being a Connecticut town with almost the exact same zip but off by 1 neighboring digit that its a typo or that people sometimes have sucky handwriting then I am to believing that there was some sort of secret conspiracy to get a 15 year old kid a dodgy social security card so he could work at Baskin Robins.

              And I don't have a clue who paid for college for him, nor do I particularly care. I just know that the source of that claim was someones April Fools joke. I'm pretty sure he got loans like most students do but was that all of his college funding? No idea.

              He got elected the same way everyone else does, people voted and he got the most. There has never been any proven evidence of any kind of large scale vote fraud in the United States. The system is simply too un-centralized for that to happen. This has been looked into extensively in many states. The evidence is just not there.

              I hear ya about Chicago and Cook County, here in Oregon if you don't live in Portland or the other big towns in the Willamette Valley you may as well not send in your ballot.

              I'm just so very tired of the personal attacks, and conspiracy theories, and tabloid nonsense, and the questioning of patriotism. Lets assume we all are lucky as hell to live here and that we all want to see this country succeed. Lets disagree based on facts and policy. Lets sit down and reason together. Chart a middle course that we can all live with. That's what the founders intended. This country has real problems, but as long as each side wants to destroy the other, as long as each side thinks the other hates america, we're never going to solve them, and then we'll be in real trouble.

                From your thoughts I would guess that you're fairly young and idealistic, which would make some of your reasoning understandable.

                But that last sentence of yours that I highlighted in yellow speaks volumes.

                Because if you honestly believe that the administration currently in the White House doesn't hate this country, you're living in a parallel universe where up is down and down is up.

                The truth isn't what you want it to be, it just is what it is.

                And your last five words - "we'll be in real trouble" - were in the wrong tense.

                We are in real trouble.

                  Do you ever get tired of whining? Have you spent your whole GD life whining? How's it working out for ya so far?

                  Whiners like you who blame their whole GD life of failure on racism, spoil it for people who truly do suffer racism at some point in their life. You've played the race card so much and screamed racism so often that the word racism itself has lost it's meaning and power. It's old and overused and meaningless now because idiots like you use it to explain why you didn't win the GD Powerball Jackpot of all GD things.

                  It's now become like the boy who cried wolf, nobody listens anymore.

                  You are singularly the biggest GD idiot I have ever seen here.

                    LOL typical white person.
                    Winning $220 million dollars isn't enough, "I want a billion" LOL
                    Wow.Smash

                    Obama was right. "White people's greed runs a world in need"

                    A billion dollars? seriously? Brad duke needs a BILLION DOLLARS?
                    Disgusting.

                     I don't remember him ever saying he NEEDED a billion dollars, he WANTED to be a billionare to have the capital to really do some good. You should do a little research nexttime, you look at an informatiobn box everytime you sit down at your pc.

                        At $70M and $10M rollovers, it should be there in 3 more draws or sooner.

                          Assuming it keeps rolling the next bump should be to around 85M. With the sales from the coming drawing the jackpot pool will be fully funded and they won't be doing the minimum raise anymore.
