"After..."

Insider info?  Maybe I should parlay heavy on the British Columbia lottery.

Perhaps you should but use caution as your acquaintances may not be too pleased.

    It behoves me that politicians act like they r concerned about the well being of poor people.Poor people don,t have enough money to buy lottery tickets.

      The comment was addressing the word "after" which, in this case, would indicate an event will occur, not may occur.  If this were to be known prior to such an event then one would have an advantage to place a bet on the side of knowledge (i.e. insider info).  Since BC is in the news as taking such bets, it was the place of mention.  I am sure my acquaintances are able to detect tongue in cheek dialogue.

        I'm feeling a jackpot win coming my way!

        The "tax on the poor" thing has always been a false statement, and was concocted by anti-lottery people to sway public opinion.  Taxes are compulsory, while the lottery is voluntary.

        It's just like how anti-gun forces concocted the term "assault rifle" in order to get people to hate guns.  There is actually no such thing as an "assault rifle".

        While I agree it's a false statement, they keep on saying it.
