    Hearsetrax,

    Having a   career  whether its blue collar or professional also puts you under the same microscope .You have to be carefeul  how you are perceived in the public  eye ,and making decisions that would not jeopardize your career.You can go on with your everyday life without  doing things that put you at risk .She could easy be a target for lawsuits to with the type of company she keeps .Im a social yet also private person .As my grandfather told me growing up always be careful who you call "friends ",and never embarass the family.Alot of the Lp on this forum  here know what they have to lose if they made bad decisions after winning the lottery.

      I can't speak for anyone else, but if I ever win, there's absolutely no way I'll be "under the same microscope" as Holmes.   In the first place, I won't have a live-in partner who is a known gang member, a felon who is accused of trafficking in massive quantities of heroin.   I don't have any children, but if my partner did, I wouldn't be doing drugs around them or exposing the kids to that type of activity.

      I could handle the notoriety of winning a large jackpot and I would be able to deal with strangers, friends or family wanting me to share my good fortune with them, but I would not tolerate someone such as Ms. Holmes' b/f  being in my life ...no matter if I had millions of dollars or barely two nickels to rub together.

        Mike,

        Did I tell you I used to be to be in a gang?

        I know our Holly Hobbies had to be tough with those silly hats.

          Mike in Texas ,

          with Marie Holmes  she is a product of her enviroment  .No matter how much money you have the mentality she has its as if she is still in that destitute  enviroment  by the decisions shes making.If her children end up being removed she would definitely have to go to counseling and learn how to be a responsible parent with plenty of social worker visitations to .

            Ah, but you don't HAVE to be a product of your environment.  I know people who had the worst sorts of parents and overcame that horrible environment and are now good parents with successful careers and I know preacher's kids who wound up as drug addicts.  Nature/Nurture, the argument will go on for centuries. 

            What I can criticize her on is letting her children be in that environment.  Maybe she's got a thing for bad boys, maybe he's the best lover in the world, who knows, but it's easy to see she cares more for him than she does her kids...at least it looks that way to me.

              lmbo  I had to go look up "Holly Hobbies" and it was pretty much like I had guessed.  The first gang I was ever in was with two of my classmates - the 3rd grade teacher called us the Three Stooges when we cooked up some mischief.   Late when I was in h.s., I was in another gang w/ the other five boys in our graduating class - we called ourselves "The Dirty Half-Dozen".

                Thats true mike in texas

                 you definitely dont have to be a product of your enviroment many prevail  and live successfully.Marie Holmes seems to be comfortable in it with the unfit boyfriend and was apparently with him before she won the lottery .The article stated once she received her winnings she bailed McDow out the first time with $3million and the next time $6 million ..

                  According to some websites when Marie Holmes was arrested with the boyfriend ,she was still living in a trailer and had not even bought a new house as she stated she would to the media.How could someone spend millions to bail a bpyfriend out yet not move into a nice home  yet for her children..

                      In addition to the "Good Morning America" show  Blue Angel in the evening they should have the "Bad Moon Rising" Evil Smile. 

                      You could jam pack it with all the instant millionaires & overnight successors that failed after GMA. 

                       

                      I see a bad moon rising.
                      I see trouble on the way.
                      I see earthquakes and lightnin'.
                      I see bad times today.
