well, im not christian, but i could care less who wants to thank who. God, the Easter bunny, tooth fairy, the tree in your backyard...whatever or whoever.

The fact is, we live in a nation where Christianity is the predominent religion, so it makes sense that most people, assuming they are religious to begin with, would say 'Thank God'. I take no offense to that- why should I (or anyone?).

And I find it funny that I am the owner of the one very lonley vote for 'tell my boss where to shove it'. Actually, it would be 'I quit, here's your files, best of luck to you.'

just my two cents on a boring saurday evening ;)

    Well the truth is that God is against gambling so to thank him for a win is kinda against his plan...... lol.

    ( But if that is what floats your boat then go for it.)

    Next point , im a black guy and I will bed any woman no matter what color she is I believe in equal opportunity its the American way....lmao.

        after 2 great lotto jack pot winners, do you think we could hope for a third?

        Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

        For a lead role in a cage?
