Some times things do get better or worst.  During the Clinton years I was able to work 60 hrs. weeks which build up my pension before I retired since it was based on the best 5 years of earnings  of my last 10.  I feel sorry for my co-work who depended on the years they worked during the Bush years and even more sorry for the young one that are still working.  The plant finally switched totally to 401Ks for retirements, cut its work force and may shut down with this bad economy.

The Clinton years were the worse of my life,even worse than the Carter years.The harder I worked the behinder I got.Sixty hour workweeks were the norm,but I couldn't put a nickle in the bank because Clinton was to busy giving money to those that wouldn't work.I see the same coming in the Obama years.

    I luv when the subject gets on politics!! Its fun to watch the sparks fly!!!

     

    Funny thing is in all the elections mentioned here no one mentioned anything but the '2' partys.  Maybe that is the problem we need more than the '2' party system? Or would that be worse?

    Maybe I should start a poll asking 'Did you or would you ever vote for a 3rd,4th ect party?'

    Money won is twice as good as money earned!

      I hear you.  Sometimes I have to grit my teeth and move on to avoid typing what I am feeling.  Everybody blames the "last 8 years" without a thought as to the last two.  No one does their homework to determine "What happened?"  No one gives credit where credit is due unless that credit goes to the political party of their choice.

      If more voters were honest with themselves and asked the difficult questions, perhaps their vote would be more informed.  No way this will ever happen.  "My daddy voted (fill in the blank) and so am I".  My favorite is "I did better with (again, fill in the blank) than I did with those other guys!"

      We do have problems in this country but so has every country since the beginning of government (Hamuriba comes to mind).  The way those problems are solved determines the future of that country.  Look to your history.  Find out what happened to Rome, Persia, Isreal, England, France, and Zimbabwe.  Why did those countries fall after becoming the "superpower" of their time?  Each failed for a specific reason.  In the case of Zimbabwe, they were the breadbasket for all of Africa.  Now they are the recipeints of food aid and people there are still starving to death.

        No sense getting all bummed out because you didn't win the big one, besides one would have to be delusional to think they have a champion racehorse of a chance of beating 175 million to one odds. The group that won from NJ they showed a photo of the winning ticket in the paper the next day, basically the first four lines typical digit ranges; low- middle to high but that last line, it was like a godsend the 26, then each high number correct, Score! Next big jackpot kick in your 5 dollars, mabye it;ll be your turn, if not no biggie, live to fight another day.

          when i lose i say to myself..well there is another chance next draw...with lotteries anything is possible...once you give yourself the chance that is...

          but some people take it too seriosly that it needs to be taken...they think somehow it will be them because they need it most or whatever reason that makes them think that...random is random..there is no reason.

          every lottery game is set up as a system: this game will pay out this much, take in as profit this much ..therefore meaning the odds and payouts will be set a certain way to benefit the purpose of making that game..so of course there will be a lot of losers...one big winner to attract the game participants...and the rest profits for the state..the state is the only winner by design...

          now everyone that plays, of course hopes to win...thats just fine...but you need to consider that the game probabilities of losing are so vast....its a bit misleading to the brain when u say pick just 5 balls and one bonus ball.....behind these 6 numbers lie millions of possibilites...

            I don't expect to win or lose.  I expect to have fun and daydream about "what if" it happens.

              Don't waste time dwelling on the lost, work towards getting some hits for small win, while at the same time have a shot at the jackpot.

                it's all in the fun of playing, don't set your sight for the "mega" win. sure, you can reduce your chances by using systems, but it's still a slim chance there.

                as far as frustration, i get "sick" of playing pick 2, always one number off! it's more frustrating than any other game to me.

                    I just keep playing and beliving that my numbers will hit very soon; but it is only human nature to be disappointed week after week that you did not win the "BIG JACKPOT" that week and a bit envious of the players that did; I just remember the players who won last week's $212 Mega Millions that they weren't millionaires two weeks ago and that my luck could change just like theirs did over night.   MY NUMBERS WILL HIT THE BIG JACKPOT VERY SOON--IT'S ALL ABOUT LUCK, TIMING AND POSITIVE THINKING!!

                     

                    GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF THE LOTTO PLAYERS AND KEEP ON BELIVING!!

                        the way i see is and the way you should see it too...But the way i see it is that i am superhuman going after the impossible [even though i am human]...no matter how many loses i get i see it as i am going after something most humans who think are better than you don't go after...Think of it as proving something...I will give you an example...Lots of women prefer or have deep admiration for a well sculpted in shape guy, but at that kind of stuff i laugh deep inside because if given the right conditions WE ALL look like that but i dont say i word i keep it to myself...What i do is go after the lottery because here 99.9999999% if not 100% of people will fail...But i go after if because ANYONE can start working out and go after the sculpted body,  but only a miniscule handful minority will go after the impossible...

                        that's how i see it...And what inspire me a lot is the Addidas and Nike saying: "Just do it" and "impossible is nothing"...Those are the things that inspire me...so i really don't see it as a loss but as something a miniscule minority will do....That's why i don't like crowds because is riddled with people that think they are better than you... 

                        everytime i get a step closer i toast and reward myself with a drink of some kind of juice and i think and i look back and i think: "How sorry this people really are en vida real"....

                        no matter if i never get to crack pick3 or megamillions i still see it as doing something rare people will do...If i never get to crack pick3 i see it as "IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING"...OR "JUST DO IT"...

                        And another secret which i said i wasn't going to do it but i am doing it, what keeps me going also is women...I am not the cuttest guy in the world, i am ugly please don't try to be nice but i am ugly and i notice a lot that women go for the cuttest guy or how good looking he looks and i see a lot of hot women walking with cute guys, and i say to myself why i can't be me, that guy is not better than me, he never has...and you can't tell a lot of women this because they get upset...and like how i was say, knowing the kinds of things that happens to humans and the many fronts that humans face and how much the mind can take, i know there is not possible way in the UNIVERSE that guy is better than me even perhaps if i was disfigured [knowing that cloning exist]...But despite all this women don't attract me much, but the ones that do i see them with beautiful guys...And that's what pusshes me to go after the impossible...And not only that but knowing that humans really do need help with the sheer immense problems/fronts that they face and like each year a new problem emerges and adds up to the pile and that's what pusshes me to go after the impossible...

                        and what pusshes me go continue also is necessity, i really will like to buy my mother a house and improve my situation...Just enough to say that when i was 13 or 12 for 5 years i pick up cans on the street and it was the only source of income for my family growing up which picking up cans is one of the worse jobs you can ever have along with prostitution, i have improve since them but still it can't never be enough...

                        i praise the guy that invented cloning...cloning kind of even the playing field a little...

                        stuff that make me think that guys are not better than me that i think about sometimes: "The eternal fountain of youth has not been found" 100% of the population of the world will die giving birth to others, the kind of human you will have to be when you cross the stars and the kind of human a person will have to be when it tries to terraform another planet...Sorry but no human in real life meets that profile, there is no oxygen in the universe, the universe is vast, there is no human resistant to bacteria or HIV or other...that's the kind of stuff i think....

                        The Forex trades: 1.6 Trillion dollars EVERY day, that´s more than the GDP of the Carribbean Central America, COMBINED. Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨

                          The reason why not many women attract me has to do with me watching too many porn website...sorry for mentioning that word here...it is complicated...i love women but to like date i seen so many women and beautiful women that i have narrow them down to the best...The kinds of women i like will be the equivalent of a woman liking a bodybuilder....since i seen so many...

                          and remember i can see very good closer [well i used to] but can't see very good from afar...

                          plus i don't know if this will influnce any, but since a kid i used to be left handed but they spank me to be right handed...

                            no matter if i never get to crack pick3 or megamillions i still see it as doing something rare people will do...If i never get to crack pick3 i see it as "IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING"...OR "JUST DO IT"...

                            And another secret which i said i wasn't going to do it but i am doing it, what keeps me going also is women...I am not the cuttest guy in the world, i am ugly please don't try to be nice but i am ugly and i notice a lot that women go for the cuttest guy or how good looking he looks and i see a lot of hot women walking with cute guys, and i say to myself why i can't be me, that guy is not better than me, he never has...and you can't tell a lot of women this because they get upset...and like how i was say, knowing the kinds of things that happens to humans and the many fronts that humans face and how much the mind can take, i know there is not possible way in the UNIVERSE that guy is better than me even perhaps if i was disfigured [knowing that cloning exist]...But despite all this women don't attract me much, but the ones that do i see them with beautiful guys...And that's what pusshes me to go after the impossible...And not only that but knowing that humans really do need help with the sheer immense problems/fronts that they face and like each year a new problem emerges and adds up to the pile and that's what pusshes me to go after the impossible...

                            and what pusshes me go continue also is necessity, i really will like to buy my mother a house and improve my situation...Just enough to say that when i was 13 or 12 for 5 years i pick up cans on the street and it was the only source of income for my family growing up which picking up cans is one of the worse jobs you can ever have along with prostitution, i have improve since them but still it can't never be enough...

                            i praise the guy that invented cloning...cloning kind of even the playing field a little...

                            stuff that make me think that guys are not better than me that i think about sometimes: "The eternal fountain of youth has not been found" 100% of the population of the world will die giving birth to others, the kind of human you will have to be when you cross the stars and the kind of human a person will have to be when it tries to terraform another planet...Sorry but no human in real life meets that profile, there is no oxygen in the universe, the universe is vast, there is no human resistant to bacteria or HIV or other...that's the kind of stuff i think....

                            not superhuman actually, but that certain people are not better than me...

                            The Forex trades: 1.6 Trillion dollars EVERY day, that´s more than the GDP of the Carribbean Central America, COMBINED. Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨
