The senate did not vote on the NC Lottery last night.  They put it off until May.  I think it was a good thing that they didn't vote because it took 20 years and sneaking it into the state budget to get it this far.  We never would have gotten a lottery it it had lost the vote.  At least they won't have to start over getting it approved in the house and the senate and all the other legislator that goes with it. 

Hopefully, enough Yes votes can come through by May.  Maybe the no-sayers will go away and the yes vote can be bulided upon.

One monkey stopped the show this time.

          Why can't North Carolina get it through their heads that people will play lotteries regardless of whether NC gets one or not?  I say if you can't beat them, join them!  NC is just losing money to neighboring states by not having a lottery!

           North Carolina is losing a lot of money... but for some reason they can see it.

            i wonder what the legislature sees that the voter's do not.

            my first thinking is they weren't high enough on the rewards list to vote in favor

            or they were not included in the all expenses paid junket

             

            my conspiracy theory paranoia is running away with me again

            the odds do not mean much to those who win the jackpot

              most likely the new government buracracy (sic) is more involved and less profitable and not as fair to the public as they might like
