yes rich people play - their the ones that usually win !  

A tip of my cap to you emerald64!

I've been waiting for a post such as yours.  I started this thread because I'm aware of a convenience store that is located in a very affluent but small town in the suburbs of New York City.  It's has many celebrity residents and is generally known as a "millionaire's enclave".

Recently this store has had multiple second place MM, PB and NY State Lotto winners, as well as a Lotto jackpot winner in the mid-1990's.  Why would a store in such a small town produce so many high tier prizes?

The owner attributes it to the wealthy residents of that town who he says "play an easy grand a week".

About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!

    Yeah, I read his brother's gross income is $12 a year. I saw a picture of him in the mud hut he lives in.

    I wonder if there's some way we could help him out cuz his brother only gives out money if it's somebody else's.

    He'd let his brother starve to death before he'd give him a nickel of his own money.

    rd,  I did not know this !!! ..I did not know that Jarasan was actually serious about Obama's brother??!!!... that is lower than basement-low...I am not suppose to speak badly of those who govern the people according to Scripture...However Injustice can be spoken against...this is unbelievable!!!

    forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

    Now, does it count??

        Lotteries like to promote themselves as gambling games of entertainment for those folks who have extra money to spend, not as games that take advantage of the poor and needy.

                    What do you mean racist? There is nothing racist about it.  It is all your mind.  Obama doesn't care for his half BROTHER,  period. 

                    Facts are facts.  And if you are counting colors,  Obama is half white,  or that doesn't count?

                      depends what is in the mind. intentions. I could be wrong, hence my apology, but I am very sensitive to how it is all presented, so maybe I was wrong and over reacted in that case ok. still something I feel is not right... but so be it...

                        No problem,  apology accepted.   I believe family first,  take care of your mom, dad, sisters,  brothers, cousins etc. neighbors,  it is the way it is,  especially if you have the means and ability.  This is what I don't understand of Obama, and it ain't about color.  Why on earth can't the most powerful man on earth help out his family,  I would be the first in line cheering YES! he does care about his brother.

                          I see... got ya. good... I have 0 idea what and why he cares or does not care about his family (or even if it can be verified to be true), i was offended by a portrayal of a man standing in a door, so probably got it all wrong, and I see where you were going... good, rest is irrelevant... and so its freedom of speech, and I am very much an anarchist at heart, what I am not anarchist about are very simple principles, "that all are created equal" cheers

                              Obama is not the first American who has half siblings in the other half of the world that doesn't feel responsible for them, when I was in Viet-Nam, a good many of the troops fathered children there and I doubt if their american family ever knew they would feel any responsibility toward them.  That's just the way the world is.
