i was also thinking that if people want to skip the weekly drawing and save their accumulated and wait until they accumulate a lot of tickets and use them to play the bi-weekly drawing or the 3rd weekly drawing is fine with them too....

don't a lot of people lose their homes due to tornado each year, don't they need a helping hand both with volunteering work and donations...

I think is very fair and i am very right...

Don't we want to promote the saying, give and God will bless you 100 folds...Isn't the U.S a nation of giving...I mean so much catasthrophies that happen all around the world and they need helpers and donations...

you think this is absurb...You know what's absurb...The sky miles rewards programs that airlines got...I never thought humans will stoop that low, that's just encouraging people to spend...And yet such system exist...And where is all the money going to? To make the owner of Visa which is one person, get richer and richer like Bill Gates....And no one has done the same thing for volunteer work or for people that join the military....

Someone should write this to their congressman and to the state lottery...The state lottery should be the one to implement this since their are the ones that want only the state lottery and no other form of lottery to exist...Since is the state lottery who is imposing its religion on people....

This is not only for the U.S.A but for every country in the world....

      People in need need your help not your pity...

      If you laugh at the idea of a lottery...WHAT DO YOU THINK THE SHOW: "AMERICAN IDOL" IS....

      AMERICAN IDOL IS A LOTTERY....IS NOT ONLY A LOTTERY BUT IS A FREE LOTTERY....

      The meaning of the world lottery means that OUT OF MANY, 1 OR A FEW IS SELECTED...Same thing like a free lottery...In American idol the entire country participates and only 1 or 2 are selected as winners....And American idol is brought to you thanks to who? American Idol is brought to you thanks to the sponsor/advertisers...A free lottery is brought thanks to who? is brought to you thanks to the sponsors/advertisers....

      In a free lotto you pay with your time to view advertisement...In American Idol you are paying but by watching the TV and watching advertisement, viewers means money...

      Just to show you....The only difference is that American Idol is done on TV, while a free lotto is done on the internet...

          American idol is a franchise these producers are in it for the money they receive. The contestants are pawns in the mix of the show there is nothing free about it. It's is not a lottery it's a popularity contest where the viewers pick a winner even if that person isn't a great singer.
           
          There are strict rules concerning the entrants of the contest and not anyone can be a contestant so as far as a lottery is concerned it's NOT

            If you volunteer AND expect something in return, other the self gradification, you are both a fool and a pander.  I volunteer are the local hosiptal, and all I expect is a smile from the person I am escorting.  I found I didn't know how to find areas in the hospital, and volunteered to be one of the walkers.  I walk with a limp, and am glad to accept smiles.  I never accept money! Self gradification not some financial reward.  That is what volunteering is!

              Though some free lottos are not strick, some have certain requirements they expect from you...Some will expect you to be BRitish, or have an email account others expect you to be Americans in order to play....Some of them have different requirements....

              is a franchise, after they became famous..I am sure when they started i am sure they were a shack in two wheels...

              If free lottos became as popular and effective as american idol with all that publicity, they too would have become a franchise...

                a good example is Powerball...Such a game has astronomical odds and yet millions of people sweat and rally at gas stations just for something that will select 1 winner...

                another example is Lotterypost.com...The 50,000 memmbers of LP they are all rallying and coming up with theories to win Powerball...

                The key for the free lotto for people that volunteer is the jackpot amount...You have to set the right amount and you have to set several of them...Each on in each state...

                So many of you say that if you could bet 5,000 for each drawing you will have won POWERBALL already...

                Now don't you think that people in the outside are going to put in 5,000 tickets worth of volunteer time to win millions of dollars...

                i don't think is fair for someone to put in volunteer work and work their butts off, to later have his/her wife/husband separate from them, or 3 years down the line lose her job because of company job cuts..Stuff that happens regularly that i don't think is fair...Yet someone that is a thug or who doesn't care about humanity only about himself get a raise, or someone that is wealthy already and inherited millions from his parent, make 5 million more each year additional because he has and advantage to start a HUGE bussiness, or had the best help to make the ELITE investment option...So is life fair... And we need volunteer work...During Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana didn't we need volunteer work? don't we need people to donate their blood? Not just by volunteering but by donating people get to play this free lottery and by doing so they can earn point when playing the lottery....Like different kinds of volunteering donation gives you points some points with higher ranks than others and they all are going to help you win this big free lotto....Which to me should be a lotto bigger than Powerball and the U.S.A should be cluttered/peppered with such free lotto exclusively for people that do volunteer work and others for people that are enlist in the Army or Marines...Not for the navy or airforce...

                i was also thinking that if people want to skip the weekly drawing and save their tickets and use them to play the bi-weekly drawing or the 3rd weekly drawing is fine with them too....

                "The key for the free lotto for people that volunteer is the jackpot amount...You have to set the right amount and you have to set several of them...Each on in each state..."

                I've been to benefits that include dinner, reverse raffles, and silent auctions on donated gifts and the winners usually donate all or most of their winnings back to the cause. The people running these events donate their time and money because of the cause and I believe most of them will tell you ALL the proceeds should benefit the cause. Why would volunteers want to benefit?

                "Now don't you think that people in the outside are going to put in 5,000 tickets worth of volunteer time to win millions of dollars..."

                I think the idea is to donate $5000 to help someone get their life back in order and not a minuscule chance of winning multi-millions. When people need food, water, clothes, and shelter, do you really believe handing them scratch-off tickets solves that problem?

                  No you have it all wrong the people who make it to the top ten in American idol usually have dedicated their trade from a very young age some as young as 3 or 4 years old they were pushed by their parents to become famous. Take music and voice lessons sing in churches, choirs and other places. I don't know where you get your information but you should research your subjects in order to stay on point.

                  American idol and free lotto doesn't belong in the same sentence.

                  Being on American idol cost money. They might put you up in a hotel if you make the finalist list but you still have to pay for meals, clothes and everything else you need. My step daughter went to American idol for a try out she left Baltimore and went to Chicago. Stood in line for 4 hrs in the rain. She had to pay for the whole trip up and back. Didn't even get to try out for the show was eliminated while standing in line. American idol is a contest and you must be top notch singer to get to the finals and win.


                   

                  Now if your thinking about the website fee lotto they are set up as a heavy advertiser the send people who play hundreds of advertisements every day called spam to cover the cost to play the games in order for them to pay out on a win it's the advertisers that foot the bill Plasma net is the sponsor of the games. Many people think free lotto is a rip off because in order to win most games you must match all your numbers. They don't contact you if you win you have to contact them and if you don't do it in a certain amount of time or fail to comply or fill the form out correctly you WON'T GET PAID.

                  If you join free lotto you agree to their terms and those terms are to accept their spam mail and if you send their emails to a spam folder you just might not be allow to play anymore.

                    Military people who enlist for a job are not volunteering.

                    Those who are drafedt... are not volunteering.

                    I hate it that their lives are endangered as they are.   I have relatives in Iraq and other countries who chose to make the military their career.

                    Actually tntea, our nation's military forces (Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines) is comprised of a 100% VOLUNTARY force.  This includes both the officer and enlisted ranks.  We do not currently have an active draft taking place. 

                    Also the nature of the armed forces is to protect and defend our nation...therefore, the job is inherently dangerous.  If someone wants to try to avoid danger at all costs, they perhaps just might want to try checking out on life as danger exists in our daily lives whether you know it or not.  Just getting into your car and backing out onto the street and onto any of our highway systems places you in perhaps the most dangerous place in the world.

                    I enlisted in the Navy and now currently serve as an officer in the reserve component, so I do know what I am talking about.  Bravo Zulu to your relatives who chose to make the military a career.

                    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!

                      And most prisoners are asked to volunteer on road work and other areas of the government, that doesnt mean that they qualify to be given a free lottery.

                      True fact: Military employed folks will never fight on homeland. That is what the national reserves is for.. So they arent defending america so much as defending and being hired out to defend other countries who are at conflict. Out tax money goes to outside conflicts. I dont like paying for a bullet or atomic weapon on one of my fellow man, no matter what their differences might be. Life is too precious.

                      Pumpi- I respect your honor for such deeds and such folks, I just disagree on some levels that they are special enough.

                        I know you hate to have your facts disputed, but in this case, you are wrong. 

                        Nothing prevents the President from declaring a National Emergency and sending U.S. Military members into the street of America.  Nothing prevents it, except intelligence and integrity. Something every President, including Bush, has shown for decades.  Not only can the President of the United States declare a Nationl Emergency, under that emergency, can nationalize every business in the country. Under the authority of a National Emergency, the President has almost unlimted power. It is one of the reasons that position is the most important in the world.  It is NOT a popularity contest, and should not be treated as an Idol contest. 

                        Having said that, pending activation of a National Emergency, the U.S. Military is forbidden to sending armed troops off of their bases/posts.  It is called the Posse Comitatus Act, signed into law in 1897.  The Posse Comitatus Act was passed to remove the Army from civilian law enforcement and to return it to its role of defending the borders of the United States, based on fears developed when the military guarded election booths. Of course, should the President declare a National Emergency, the military will be on a street corner near you. Perfectly legal, the way the system was designed to work!  Oh, contrary to the television show NCIS, U.S. Military Police are prohibited from investigating crimes against the militay off base/post.  They can assist local police, but have zero authority.  Without written agreement with the local police, they aren't even allowed to carry weapons in their holsters.

                        As far as life being too precious to fund the military, those who defend millions of Americans from terrorist, the very terror who have a primary goal to cut YOUR head off, after gang raping you and your grandmother, that is pollyanna trying to exit in a real world. Have you forgot the photos on the net where they did exactly that on the streets of Lebanon? They don't how nice you feel or anti-military you are. The military is the reason you get to sit in your house and be a member of the LP.  Without it, you would be in the water fields planting rice and bamboo. Had the Japanese succeed, after Pearl Harbor, do you believe that they would not have destroyed the American way of life and implemented your?  Visualize the Japan before 1941, without rebuilding from the the U.S. That would be your way of life, if you had your way!

                        Should the military be outside our borders, destroying facists and terrorist?  Naw, they should stay inside our borders and let millions die.  Your life is too precious.  Those hundreds of thousands that were butchered by Sadam were a waste of resources.  I would agree with you that those dumb jews in the concentration camps deserved to die; why should Americans be wasting their resources.  I also agree with you that those in Darfor and Gahna deserve to have their heads chopped off, and be skinned alive.  After all, it is the U.S. Military that leads the world into all those areas, we can prove it by the number of graves of those who died hiring themselves out to other countries.  What a waste of resources. Your life is too precious. No matter how many need to suffer.

                        By the way, you are wrong about the Reserves also.  The purpose of Reserves are to support the U.S. Military;  providing manpower when required.  How do you think they become a member of the Reserves?  You first become part of the military, then when your enlistment is up, you serve the remainder of your required military time in the Reserves.  The Reserves defend nothing, they just practice being as the best they can.  They, as the Reserves will NEVER do anything other then that! They will NEVER defend America as Reservist.  Maybe, some day as members of the U.S. Military, but never as members of the Reserve.

                        Are you confused on the difference between the National Guard and the U.S. Reserves?  Probably so!

                        Sorry, facts are facts and the truth is more important then misconception.
