Don't forget the mystic that said this would roll until Good Friday.  Let's see if that person was right. Don't remember which thread it was posted on.

      Do we really have to bring politics into this? No point in starting an argument.

      Sorry, I am not trying to argue. I merely presented some facts as I have researched the subject of tax history. It is my private view that history shows us that revenues would rise with a reduction in personal and corporate taxes. If we has the lowest taxes on the planet, companies would move here.

      I just feel that if I win, I would be paying plenty in Federal Taxes. Thank you very much and best wishes to you on Friday! (of course, the most bestest wishes to me)Yes Nod

      Woo Hoo, today is my SSDI payday ...............

              But with all of the tax loop holes, compaines actually pay little to very little each year in taxes. Look at GM for example. They actually got money back from the goverment. The reason compaines are going overseas had nothing to do with taxes. It's the fact they can pay someone 3.00 an hour and force them to work 16 hours shifts in counties like China or Indiana.

                      Hey Todd, I was wondering how many tickets you are going to buy for yourself?

                          Good question, haven't figured that out yet.  But it will definitely be more than one.

                            One definition of insanity is that you keep trying the same thing expecting different results ..........

                            FDR tried the 90% tax rate as well as confiscating reserve capital ("hoarded cash") in 1937 and we were rewarded with a depression within a depression! (please, if anyone doesn't believe me, disprove this on your own)!

                            The estimated $85,250,000 25% witholding is plenty for the Crooks in the Federal Government as far as I am concerned. I will mitigate the remaining 10% tax obligation!

                            Amen!I Agree!

                              Our lotto web site says 500mill. Is this correct.
