What's this world comming to?  At least with the lottery you might feel like your are getting kissed

before your screwed.  I think we should close down all the schools too, this way we won't have to

lie to the kids about how education will make them fit for life.  Just think how much money we could

save if we did not have an education system.   I am being sarcastic here but anytime I see a group

of a-holes trying to decide what is good for the rest of us without our consent, well it kind of moves 

me to load all my guns.

    I Agree!

    There's always a$$holes trying to tell everyone else what's good for them instead of just minding their own business.

      what they really need to do is shut down the churches. how many people waste how much money going into those places to support some fairy tale belief.

          Did i just read recently that some church group also wants to stop TX lottery ?

          are they working together ?

          they should get a life !

           

          Oh, that is their life, interfering in other's lives.

          Some of those churches need to sit their behinds down somewhere!!

          Dang hypocrites!! Same church don't want the lottery have bake sales and

          church raffles, pass the collection plate three or four times during the sermon

          and demand you tithe (10%) from your income!! Forget that!! You'll end up giving

          more to the church than the lottery!! 

           

          Nothing wrong with giving to your church but some of the things some churches pull

          to get money out of it's members is ridiculous!! Pastor appreciation dayWhat?  come on!!!

          really? Get out of my face with that mess!!

                I agree, I'm delusional.

                I play MM and PB every week because it gives me hope. I actually think I'm going to win the Jackpot someday and when I don't win I get upset.

                I would get more upset if the NAACP took that option away from me.

                  TX will not stop the Lottery.  However, it can probably be banned from certain towns that choose not to participate...that is if the majority wins.

                      I got a plan for those certain towns that choose not to participate.

                      And here it is: Don't participate!

                      There, wasn't that easy?

                      No ban needed.

                        I said to some in work, Jersey never met a tax, a rule or a law it did'nt like,

                        maybe  I'm wrong, finally,

                        this will never fly in jersey,

                         

                        and unless I'am as bad on this as I'am at winning lotto, It won't fly in TX. either.

                            Church is big business.  In Africa as well as America, some of the richest folk are pastors. They have no problem with people giving any amount of money to them, but blast any use of your money that falls outside of "acceptable" household purposes. Well, the way I see it, even in the Bible, they drew lots (which is a form of lottery) when the parceling out of land, and churches are indeed businesses and a racket in some cases (particularly those espousing prosperity gospel). When it comes to business, I choose those I want to patronize and those I want to avoid...so I choose to give my tithes and offerings to the lottery commission by buying MM, PB, and lotto tickets.  At least I have a chance for a return on my giving. 

                            Multi-millionaire pastors...broke congregation members...I think I'll take a chance with the lottery.

                            Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                            The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                              I think people need to be educated that this game is not for gambling but should be played for fun. The odds are so against you even on play 3 and play 4 because you may spend $1 a day but If you are playing everyday that $1 now adds up to $30 a month $5 a day would be $150 a month
