Congrats Shamus, that's not enough to retire on, hope you pay off your home and put some away for your old age.

Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

For a lead role in a cage?

    Is prolly an English word?  And only a racist would use Odumdumcare for the president?

    Well, there ya go again. Throwing that 'racist' accusation again. Ever heard of the boy who cried 'wolf'? Disagreeing with the President or mocking him and/or his policies is not 'racist'. Get over it.

     

    Congrats to the winner. He will soon learn $1k per week before taxes is not retirement at his age. That $1k per week will be worth less than half that in about 30 years.

      "He will receive weekly installments of $1,000 — minus taxes — for the rest of his life. That's about $666 per week."

       

      In this case, I wouldnt mind Uncle Sam taking another dollar to make it  $665

          LOL. Good point CDanaT.

          Pia, I'm pretty tired of the racist accusations every day myself. But, we all knew it was coming the first time he was "elected".

              Right unless your really frugal. These days that might put you in the middle of middle class.

                He's smart.  Pay off mortgage, invest some, and splurge here an there.  Wise choice.  That's what I would do if I won a lottery that while nice to have the extra money, would not be enough to say I quit my job over.  Plus he must really like his job.  Nothing wrong with that.

                  Racist...? Wow... idiot? Go read a dictionary. Look up "racist" and "terrorist".. Obama is a terrorist and the poster is not a racist.

                    It's funny how the public in general believe winning a lottery is sufficient to retire. A major source of this perception has to do with the media and this story is a prime example.The initial headline doesn't disclose anything about how much the winner won...just that he or she won and won't retire.

                    I find it as bad as referring to Richard Lustig as winning seven lottery jackpots or that anyone who wins a one million dollar annuity or prize is an instant "millionaire". They conveniently leave out the tax obligations in order to portrait a fantasy. A true "millionaire" has a liquid net worth of at least $1,000,000. Someone who may have bought a $2 million house and is carrying a $1.5 million mortgage doesn't qualify.

                    I think Shamus will be just fine with his winnings and the best of luck towards paying off his mortgage and enjoying life with the financial windfall he has been blessed with.

                     

                    Off topic: Just because somebody doesn't agree with the president or his ideology doesn't make him or her a racist/bigot. The person who brought up the race card is usually the true racist but too ignorant to realize that fact.

                      Congratulations to the winner,Shamus Harmon. $666.00 per week is great but he is wise to keep working, and pay down his mortgage.

                        Since this is a *true* "For Life" prize, not one of those 20yr or 25yr pseudo-4-life games, and he's still young at 34, he can get a nice haul, a few million over the decades!

                        Some Win for life games are true won for life games...like in VA.  Also have the option of a one million lump sum.

                          You are calling your president a terrorist...I bet you wouldnt be calling him names if he were white.....Disagreeing is fine....Calling him a terrorist and mocking his African name is racist.

                           

                           

                          I am not a racist and i dont define my race as white, black or green.. I am a human being. And  by the way i am conservative...and my being conservative doesnt make me hate any body.Being conservative isnt synonymous with hate. I dont have any issues with any body....But there is clear race bias against Obama and nobody can deny that.

                            Stop With the race card already.  Learn to think for yourself, maybe you'll win some money.  Congrats to Shamus.  Obama sucks.

                              I am wondering if this is the KKK website?
