judge- Worked Hard For It

Lottery winner- bought ticket 

Envy is a horrible thing.GROPPO  Your words are very spiteful, and more revealing of your character than you know.

It's a game for crying out loud....just a game.

we are all playing with the hope of winning. The last I checked there were no income/lifestyle/occupation restrictions to qualify as a deserving winner. 

 

Congrats to my fellow Keystoner!!

 

I hope I am next.

      "I had to laugh. A guy from PA winning PB in Florida!"

      There's some real irony in that. Neither state has an income tax on their lottery, but since he's a PA resident and won in FL he'll be paying PA income tax on his FL winnings.

            Isn't this the doggonedest news you've ever heard?

            A judge of all people. Somebody who has all the money he could ever use wins the doggone jackpot.

            It's not fair. It's just not fair.

            How do you all see this?


            It is all "fair". Anyone of age 18 and older in the USA can buy a lottery ticket nowadays from almost anywhere. On the Internet, local state stores, etc.

            What's "not fair" is the darn thing didn't roll to a billion plus this time. Thud

                The Powerball game is not rigged. Anyone could have won. This is the first time that I have heard of a judge winning big in a lottery game. " The rich get richer and the poor get poorer " I was hoping too that the Powerball game would reach the billion dollar mark but unfortunately it didn't.

                    Will you call for an investigation if Rove and the Koch brothers split the jackpot?

                      I know a few Judges personally and they are salt of the earth type people.  I would bet the farm

                      that we will not be hearing that he died of a drug overdose or seeing him on a episode of how the

                      lottery ruined my life.  I would also say that the winnings will be around for a long time even after

                      his death.
