    Actually I meant to post this video,  but made a mistake. 

     

    pickone4me,

    Not much interest here in your video, nor in mine, which provided answers to the question asked in this thread, "who is pulling the strings?"  Funny how so many people of modest means apparently have no problem with the Koch brothers but hate Warren Buffet, partly because he supports higher taxes on the rich. Confused

    http://truth-out.org/video/item/14409-koch-brothers-driving-keystone-xl-pipeline-from-canada-to-cut-out-venezuelan-oil

    BTW, an American "El Gordo" would produce thousands of very happy lottery winners, instead of a handful of obscenely rich people.

      Well I live in New Jersey but it wasn't me guys, I figured I'd make the liquor store around the corner from my house a hot spot but I guess not. So it's back to the win for life scratch off like I been doing. In all honesty it's too much circling around the Mega Millions and the Powerball to ever hit an astronomical amount for that matter.

        I Agree! Theres a lot more to being "rich" than having lots of money.

        No.

          Figures the winner comes from the state that will tax their winnings the most out of all fifty states.   

           

          What it must feel like to wake up, see the local news and hear the winner is from New Jersey and go check your tickets to see that you just won about $200,000,000.   

           

          Congrats, wish it were me.

          New Jersey has very high taxes, but not the highest in the country.  I think Oregon has an 11% state income tax rate on individual net incomes of over $250,000.  Hawaii also has an 11% state tax for higher incomes. 

          There are several other states with high income tax rates, although New Jersey definitely is a very expensive place to live.  If I just won over $328 million, I probably wouldn't worry too much about it, however. Yes Nod

            Wish I could be in the USA while there is a huge jackpot in the Powerball like 500M, queing up to get your ticket must be awesome. All that atmosphere and excitment.

              I think being born in a country where opportunities exist is a plus?

              Multiple opportunities exist in EACH country!  A person needs to embrace the notion of staying in their birth country, become obsessed with their worthy big goal until achieved then always choosing next exciting big goal, and dwelling among three or so generations of their family members sharing positive insights plans with each other.

                  yeah i thought this lottery site was to help each other share ideas & encourage others when will this happen do you have to have 10,000 post?

                  You are correct to the extents of sharing ideas and encouraging others and wrong about the rest.

                  The sharing of ideas and the encouraging of others are already happening and are verified activities of members posters.

                  Finally, remember that we are still living on planet earth, and this planet's historical record on getting along is abysmally poor, regrettable and inferior. At best this planet promises and guarantees only, transitory  experiences of getting along, frequent fights and yes, at least a mega war in each century or something close to one.

                    If you're in the UK, you can buy a Euro Millions ticket. The jackpot is currently 111 million euro or 144 US dollars. The great thing about the UK is lottery winnings are not taxed, this is in contrast to the United States where the winner must pay a hefty tax bill.

                          what you gonna do? exactly!

                          Continue to bring awareness of the inequities and injustices that surround us to as many people as possible.  Once the fog is lifted from the necessary critical mass of people required to bring about change, it will begin to happen.

                          A Marketplace poster named Scott6113, on Mar 11, 2013, had this to say:

                          "The video, shocking as it is, does not extrapolate to the future. What will happen if these trends are not unchecked? France 1776 and Russia 1905 provide clues. The top 1% in the US are not entrepreneurs, are not benefactors and are not job creators. They are untitled royalty with apparent government as their puppet. In good times, they claim to be libertarians. In bad times, they raid the US treasury for bailouts. They control the information flow. Most of what you know is exactly what they want you to know. Shortly the underclass, the 47% Romney derided will have nothing left to lose and civil unrest will ensue. Occupy Wall Street is just the beginning."

                          What are you going to do?
