        This about sums up the typical American today; one needs to balance & budget. Yes, a budget includes x amount for your fun, ie. lottery playing after the priorities you have.

         

        people dream & wish & hope, but forgoing the necessities and priorities for playing the lottery requires a wakeup.

          HI my friend not just Americans in my opinion  it is the whole world very dangerous to spend beyond your means, it leads to all sorts of problems that is why I say people act in desperation.

              I think people play more when their future outlook is somewhat bleak.  I am sure people play more when their company is announcing job cuts.  I know soldiers play more when they are facing another deployment or just more service period (heck I started playing the lottery as soon as I graduated from bootcamp, first buying tickets when I visited my folks in NY and then continuing when I returned to FL...once I got all six numbers for that draw...3 on one line and 3 on the next line---boy that really blew!).  Congressmen play more when they are feeling political heat.

              But when times are good, most people of means would prefer to use their money for other beneficial pursuits. 

              But for me, whether times are good or bad, I always believe in playing at least a dollar for every Mega Millions and Powerball drawing...you never know when your numbers will come up.  Plus I will be happy whether I win the minimum jackpot amount or any amount above that (unlike some of you here and in the country who say they only play when the jackpot exceeds a certain level...hell, the jackpot amount has no bearing in whether you win or lose...it's the numbers...do they all match or don't they?).

              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!

                    The state of the economy is making people play the lottery, in the hope of winning money, the lottery is a game of faith and luck, if you dont play you won't know if you were going to be the next jackpot winner or winner of a life changing sum of money, as anyone one of us could win the lottery big time, as long as that person has total faith and believe they will win, it will happen
