Why the state chose lottery money to go into education fund [a lot or most states]....

Some many projects the, USA got, education is a last subject you will pour funds into...It could had gone into highway/road infracstruture, pet projects, many projects, build new ports, build new rail systems, built new subways, WHY they chose education...

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¨

        For example, the USA with those: $30 Billion dollars per year could had bought itself: 20 ports each costing: $1 Billion dollars and each of those ports will had generate for the USA: $2 billion a year...

        So 20 x 2 = $40 Billion dollars the USA will had made....With it construct: 300 rail system at a cost of: $1 billion each...The rail system will had generated for the, USA: $500 MIllion each so it will had been: 

        $150 Billion a year + $40 Billion dollars a year = $190 Billion dollars a year the USA will had generated for itself:

        plus the: $30 Billion from the lottery....

        Then and only then, could the: $190 Billion dollars a year could had gone to education, road infracstructure, MEDICAIRE, SOCIAL SECURITY, OR HEALTH CARE, OR SOMETHING ELSE....EITHER ONE...

          Also, i dont know if the, USA wanted to do this or could do this...But the usa could also build more rail system: 100 of them in foreign countries: generating for itself: $50 Billion dollars and 50 ports in other countries generating for itself: $100 Billion dollars a year...Like Canada or countries who cant afford it...

          The USA will had had: $150 Billion dollars PER year...Money that could be use to help foreign countries, like Foreign: AID....There are smart way to do things, YOU KNOW....

            That foreign aid money will had been used for special trains for midget body builders though. And what did Canada ever do for us? They call french fries hot chips! Who orders a hamburger and hot chips? And the wimmins in Montreal have hairy legs and armpits!

                Confusedrd, you know I have a pet-peeve with us "wimmins" showing of the pitted part of the arms anyway; I never understood why,  is not like it's the most attractive part of the arm,  now you are talking badly about the canadiens wimmins pits, well,  that's what the wimmins get for showing off arm pits!!!  hairy or not,  in the first place!!

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

                Now, does it count??

                    Pumpi,

                    I just have to know. If you ran a lottery would the scratcher games have things like "Get three hammer and sickle symbols and win the prize shown, comrades".

                    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                    Lep

                    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                        What I "love" about North Carolina, is how it's called an "educational lottery". The web address even has it in it:

                        http://www.nc-educationlottery.org/

                        However, what I find ironic is that the "money" that goes into "education" from the lottery, actually takes money away from education. Basically, for math simplicity, let's say that the lottery makes $100,000 for education. So, the state, takes away the $100,000 THEY were going to give education, and then gives the lottery $100,000 instead. What happens to the "extra" $100,000?? AND, when times were tough, they actually TOOK OUT the money earmarked for education from the lottery and used it for something else while cutting the amount earmarked for education!

                        So give me a break!! "Educational Lottery" is an oxymoron - for the gov't morons!

                          For example, the USA with those: $30 Billion dollars per year could had bought itself: 20 ports each costing: $1 Billion dollars and each of those ports will had generate for the USA: $2 billion a year...

                          So 20 x 2 = $40 Billion dollars the USA will had made....With it construct: 300 rail system at a cost of: $1 billion each...The rail system will had generated for the, USA: $500 MIllion each so it will had been: 

                          $150 Billion a year + $40 Billion dollars a year = $190 Billion dollars a year the USA will had generated for itself:

                          plus the: $30 Billion from the lottery....

                          Then and only then, could the: $190 Billion dollars a year could had gone to education, road infracstructure, MEDICAIRE, SOCIAL SECURITY, OR HEALTH CARE, OR SOMETHING ELSE....EITHER ONE...

                          You're looking at lottery revenues by combining all the state lotteries into one National lottery and assuming all the states would pool their profits. And you're not considering how each state lottery began. Each state had to specify where the lottery profits would go to get a majority of the voters to pass their lottery incentives and education was the logical choice.

                          "$30 Billion dollars per year could had bought itself: 20 ports each costing: $1 Billion dollars and each of those ports will had generate for the USA: $2 billion a year..."

                          Where exactly do you suggest the states like Montana, Iowa, Kansas, or North and South Dakota build these $1 billion ports and how did you come up with the figure $1 billion in yearly profits for any one of these states?

                          I don't know the exact percentage of lottery sales that become profit but an educated guess would be under 35%.
