"Divorcing Billy Bones would not only SHOW self-confidence, but also self-respect and strength."

 

I don't know if you're religious or not, but the bible says "what God has joined together, let no man put asunder", and that is the bottom line.

Exactly Lotterologist!

      The "fat slob" will need someone to wait hand and foot on him.  He is too dang lazy to fix his own food...  Hell he is so dang lazy to go to the bathroom..  Why not just relieve himself right there on the couch.. I am curious to know if he went to his father's funeral.  He refused to go to his mother's because he didn't want to get up for the 10 am funeral.  (He had played the play-station all night the night before.)

       

      This slob is not handicapped...  He is well able to get up off the couch... fix his own lunch.. drive a car... take a bath,  play basketball...

      He wouldn't tie his shoes in school.. He said he did not want to bend over to tie them.  If I wanted them tied I would have to tie them..

      I thought,  "hell let him fall..."  I am not going to enable his laziness..

      Tell your what --  play 5851 for $2 or $3  and donate your winnings to a special needs charity.... hopefully this will bring redemption.

        RE the topic title's question,

        Should one play if they have others feeding them?

        Who here would not play if they found themselves in that situation?

        Human nature tells us some would play even more, some would play as they have been, and some would put one dollar up with even more hope, but play they will.

        Just my $.02

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

        Lep

        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

          SmileyDonating to charity will not bring redemption to Tntea.  She's already said that a friend of her told her if she give bums money it will bet rid of them and that's what she does with contempt.

          I'll wager that Tntea has never donated to help the needy, or volunteered to help a needy child or adult with compassion.

          She's too busy worrying that they will do better than she will.

            Coin Toss - I like your answer because it sticks to the point & I agree that most of us wouldn't want to quit. 

            But the key word here is "should" and that's why I originally said there isn't a yes or no answer.  "Should" is a word that is often used when it means "do it because it's what I think is right." 

            Maybe some people would answer differently if this was the question.  "You go to a church and donate several cans of food for a soup kitchen.  You find out that instead of feeding the poor, they take the cans and sell them to buy lottery tickets.  Would you continue to donate food to that church?"

              Justx, you have to be smart about what you give.  Give yourself.  I once volunteered at a neighborhood center in the afterschool program for underserved children whose parents were drug addicts in re-hab.  I'd play jacks with them or helped them with their homework or read books to them like "Aunt Flossie Hats" and  never once did I think that what I did for them could be compromised. 

              I volunteered at another neighborhood center as a tutor.  And you know what?  I learned a lot from that little fellow. 

              I'm not trying to boost or anything.  My job was all about volunteering and we couldn't make it without them and we as employees were almost made to volunteer.  The first question someone asked you at openings and events was "What have you been doing lately". 

              If I hadn't worked in a volunteer environment I'd probably wouldn't have done so much volunteering.  So I volunteered in the communities of my choice to give back and at places that I liked and got enjoyment out of too, like a play.

              Real grassroots giving can't be compromised.

                I understood your point and the problem is now you want to determine I didn't. I responded as I wanted to, about your opinion. No one knows why anyone does anything and you can preach that until the cows come home, it just isn't so.

                No, the Bush marriage has nothing to do with the upcoming election.  My point is not every marriage appears to be what it is, but I am someone who doesn't worry about why people do what they do. Maybe that's your problem.

                You don't have to care about anything concerning me.  You put yourself in this discussion and now you want to call me mean for defending my position?

                If you're voting on a person's level of confidence, then I'd say we vote for different reasons.  Again, to each his own. Your one vote will never make a difference in any election. There is a function button that allows you to ignore me.  Try that and you don't have to read my opinions.  Apparently, you're a man that can't take on a woman who stands up for her beliefs, that when she comes out swinging, you decide she isn't comprehending what you are saying, or you call her a bit*h, as you did in a previous post.

                At some point in your life, you're going to have to have confidence in your manhood. Until then, start by growing up.

                Manhood has nothing to do with this,  that is a construct of your imagination, another attempt to change the discussion. If anybody needs to grow up, look in the mirror.  This is an open forum and I didn't call her a bi*tch Justxploring did,  I just verified and clarified her point, because as I said before I've been in Hillary's presence, know former staff etc.., you might say I have been a little closer to the situation than you.

                The reason I said you are nasty and mean is because of your name calling and personal attacks.  Can you write something and not make it personal?

                Please tell me about her swinging something or her position on anything.

                I don't vote for someone because of my perception of their level of confidence, you might, but I don't.

                I can't ignore ignorance, because ignorance is a very expensive commodity, I try to teach and inform and by the level of your angry responses, you maybe learning.

                You have yet to point out a position on anything, you keep trying to change the subject.

                  You know if they had been married in a church maybe, but your Bible quote doesn't apply here, nor would it in divorce court.

                  These apply more closely,

                  You shall not commit adultery.

                  You shall not steal.

                    The topic has nothing to do with Hillary Clinton, so you are the one that along with others changed the discussion.  Once you did that, others commented about that change in discussion.

                    I'm not going to prove myself to you or anyone else.  I answered a poll the way I saw fit.  If you don't like it, too bad.  You are assuming I am supporting Clinton, when in fact I am defending her right to be outspoken.  You are the person who is trying to sway opinion about Hillary, not me.  So what you have been around her.  That doesn't mean she will come off the way you saw her with others.

                    Like, I said, put me on ignore if you don't like what I say. Maybe the real problem is you have no confidence when it comes to strong women. Maybe you prefer the barefoot and pregnant type.  You better grow up, because they're becoming extinct.

                     

                    Don't get mad and attack me because you can't handle strong females.  By the way, the nerve of some people telling others they misinterpreted the original question is even laughable. 

                    TnTea started 2 polls on this forum, that were rude, and cruel in nature.  But, where's your gripe about that?  I don't care if you or anybody else likes my opinion. Too bad.  As long as you make your opinion known, and I do the same you have no reason to whine, whine, whine, and tell me I didn't understand it or I'm being mean. Grow up, will ya?

                    Now I could go on and on with you, but I won't.  You apparently have no one to fight with today, and I prefer a more manly opponent.

                          Grow up Jarasan.  You've got your undies in a bunch, spewing your hatred of the Clintons.  You aren't showing much diplomacy in your own responses, so you're one to call me rude and cruel.

                          You accuse people of fawning over Hillary, and you can't resist an insult of the  Clintons.  Me thinks you protest too much.  What are you a closet Clinton lover? I don't know why I've got you so worked up, but I have no more bones to throw you little fella.  You're obsessed with them.  That's not good for your health.  But the fact that Hillary gets you worked up further proves you can't handle her confidence. 

                          Try to settle down and relax. I can tell Hillary and I are too much for you.

                              I don't want to get in the middle here, but I did not!!!   I never used that expression about women.  In fact, my post was just the opposite.  Go back and read my posts if you want, but please don't misquote me. 

                              What?They why did you ask such a question? We all know that any organization that you give to whether it's through taxes- money or whatever is compromised except those that are truly grassroots and then some of those can be questioned.

                              So what was the point of even asking if you'll doing your part in trying to make this world a better place to live in by giving your time and talents to those who are less fortunate rather than drawing attention to the many things that can happen in the transition of a food donation.  To me it's just useless banter.  Just like the poll.
