While I do agree with you that all politicians lie it was pretty obvious that you went after golfer with a condescending comment when he favored a Hillary voodoo doll and not Trump. You have every right to enjoy smoking your pipe but I stay away from that along with any other illegal drugs hence the word "illegal" applies to my state of NC and not your Utopian state of California.

It's ok to come out of the closet no matter what gender or Presidential candidate you support as most here at LP will still embrace you.

Playful banter from me with some of Golfer's comments goes back a bit- of course you would have no knowledge of this. Your comment on NC/ CA..

There is a scene in the movie " The Matrix" where the Oracle says to Neo " l can see why she likes you".. and he responds " who?".. The Oracle while taking a pull from her cigarette says " not too bright though." Peace.

    Most bullies have thin skin and don't handle criticism well. It's also not unusual that their own insecurities make them over react to things that aren't even a criticism. Speaking of which, have you learned anything about "maths" recently?

      Obviously you don't understand why Artist had " Maths" in quotation marks.

      I'm giving her the benefit of the doubt, and assuming that she wrote something coherent that meant what it said. In that case it's very clear why she put it in quotes, and it's very clear that you're not smart enough to understand why the one particular example she used doesn't mean there's anything wrong with Joe's grasp of English.

        " I use to think Trump was the most stupid guy"

        I watched a interview where Trump was asked something like,  80% of people don't think you would make a good

        president to which Trump replied "over 55,000 negative adds."  The reported then as if waiting for Trump to complete

        his response looked confounded when trump then moved on to another subject.   Most people who watched this

        think he avoided the question,  Trump's reply went over the reporters head as the reporter was clueless.  Most of

        the opinions people have reached concerning Donald Trump are a result of the negative adds and not based in reality. 

        The US is sinking and we need a plan,  It's no longer a question about getting wet, the question everyone should be

        asking is, are we going to drown?   I keep hearing rants about how the top 1% have more money than the other 99%.

        I think the Walton family is worth something like 145 billion.  If we took the Walton billions and divided it among the 350

        million people in the US we would all receive around $414.00,  have fun.   What I find sad is that most of these 99% don't

        have $414.00 in cash.   I guess it's easier to blame the rich while tweeting on that new smart phone.   

        Stupid is, stupid does.

        "The US is sinking and we need a plan"

        Here's an idea. Why note vote for politicians who will work to ensure that people who are already doing far better than average will do even better, and hope those people will throw you a bone?

          Man this is refreshing love seeing people win big jackpots. I am happy for the family just imagine what they're going to do with the money and how comfortable they'll be living. Sooo comfortable. I know i can win a jackpot the same way they did.

          I agree. 

           

          Oh wait. The topic seems to have totally changed. Where can I get one of those Hillary voodoo dolls?

                Why do politics have to get in with these posts?  Plenty of other forums to vent your frustrations/views elsewhere.

                 

                Anyway I see someone in NJ had five #'s sans Powerplay last night.  Time to visit AC NJ and play the NJ lotto again.

                  Ok, I'll be the bad guy here and get this thread back on track.

                   

                  "They plan to tithe 10 percent of the money to their church."

                  Ouch!  That hurts!  Hopefully somebody ain't buying a mansion, a couple Bentleys and throwing wild parties with that money.  Soooo tempting! LOL.  Congrats to the winner(s)!

                    Gee, sounds like you were talking about the late David Edwards who split the KY Powerball prize and basically blew the whole thing.  Can still see his news appearance in the back of my mind saying, looking skyward 'Lord I will change my ways'.  Well the rest is history and he didn't.

                          You living way in the past. That applied to the ancient Jews before their Great City fell to the Roman armies- another thing the name Smith is not Jewish... Just saying!

                          **When was the last time you brought a goat to your Church as a sacrificial offering?

                          All of the Bible is way in the past, but it is very relevant and applicable to today when read in proper context.  My comment is directed at the modern day practice of monetary tithing, which is found nowhere in the Bible.  That is what I meant by "read your Bible folks.  The tithe mentioned throughout the Bible was only agricultural products, and the purposes of the tithe was to 1) provide for the Levites who received no inheritance of land (pastors today own their own homes, stocks, bonds, businesses and other property so they are not Levites), 2) provide for the widows, orphaned and less fortunate people living among them, and 3) to feed the worshippers at the gatherings. The money that is being given as a tithe today largely go to enrich the pastor and to build mega churches, from which the pastor uses the tithe-paid resources to finance other businesses.  And the best part of it all is that it is all TAX EXEMPT! 

                          So we the people pay taxes...big taxes on lottery winnings while religious corporations pay NO TAXES. 

                          Additionally, the tithe in the Old Testament was a part of the law and the taxation system that provided for the people.  The amount of the tithe in the Old Testament time varied depending on the year.  Some years, it could be as much as 23 percent of the agricultural increase.  In some years, the tithe was zero when the farmers were commanded to allow their fields to rest (that is where the principle of land use rotation comes from in rural areas).

                          Now there is nothing wrong with giving an offering of cash to a religious corporation, and the amount of such offering can be any amount or percentage.  But it is wrong for a religious corporation to place percentage requirements on people, and people are misguided if they think they have to give at least 10 percent of their earnings or winnings to a religious corporation.

                          Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                          The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!
