Amen.  Am I disheartened by all the obviously limited income people (many elderly) I see playing the lottery in DC? Yes. But lotteries are legal (if the state ratifies it) and for some of these people (and I am not referring to color but people with poor judgement), a lack of good sense is a lack of good sense.  Take away the lottery, then they go underground and play with bookies, or pick up another "addiction." 

We might as well ban food also since there are so many obese people out there. I have a neighbor (don't we all now) that is morbidly obese and I am sure she spends more on food in one week (I see the delivery truck bring in about 16 plus bags of food...I counted) that I do in a month. And she wonders why she is one of the few renters and cannot afford to buy in my neighborhood? Give me a break. Money management.  Common sense.

On an unrelated matter, does anyone else think Eric Holder looks like a suntanned Larry Tate fron the old Bewitched Tv show...lol

    JAMA is a Kool aid drinking, feeble-minded liberal with an IQ level so low, her only imagination in life is what he-she gets from watching Jersey Shore and Real Housewives of [name your city]. Mind your manners. The good people here at LP offer all types of good advice surrounding the lottery. We welcome healthy debate, but if your only objective is to call people names or make slanderous accusations, all might be best served if you not log in.

    If you don't get the Kool-aid reference, just tell us if you prefer donkeys or elephants.

    Oldschoolpa,

    Real jersey shore people are embarrsed and disgusted by that TV show,

    Lucky for me they did,nt come far enough south to be assoc. w/ my area.

     

    Now if i could get lucky w/ lottery.  LOL

          Given the fact that I am disabled, I will stand my ground against your threats of violence!

          I am not misguided, I am not stupid enough to fall for the Democratic Extremist myths and fairy tales!

          So typical of you to threaten those that disagree with you!

          US Flag I am a true Patriot, not a Fascist thug like you.

          gee, dpoly1 i am only bashing you verbally not physically. and you are the one that brought up the political anti-democratic rhetoric. if you are a patriot like you say you would accept the dems when they are in power and abide by all their wishes and wants.

            Maybe we should change the name of this country? Let's vote in a Dictator too!

                If a state lottery is shut down, people will play other state lotteries, or other non-lottery games; legal or illegal. The bottom line is the revenue is lost to the state.

                We all get a lot out of lotteries!

                  I Agree!  And many of these "illegal" games are more risky and costly than the states games. Self-control over your impulses is the only real problem.
