I know there are those who think, some people just don't deserve to win the lottery.  Who would

be number one, on your list.

      That was good sully.  I never thought of that.   I was thinking people that are too old, millionaires, sex offenders.

        Roger that, big time.

        Too many of those crooks like the President and Attorney General have already hit the jackpot with jobs they aren't qualified for.

        I would not allow illegal aliens the right to play or win either, only immigrants who come here legally by obeying our laws.

                If they sent winnings by mail I wouldn't even bother playing.

                Cuz you're right, if I did win big, the McNutts would be the happiest army of morons on the mountain.

                  Hey gsc5,

                  "you and me, but I'am not to sure about you"

                  That title of your thread kinda stuck in my craw for a while and then I remembered where I heard it.

                  An old saying: "All fisherman are liars except me and you - and I'm not too sure about you."

                  Is that where it came from?

                      I meant this posting to be on the light-side.  I really wasn't serious.  I think  anyone that plays should have an equal chance to win, its
                      random and luck.  While it would be easy to come up with a long list of those that don't deserve to win, it would be more difficult to come
                      up with a list of the most deserving.  Some think, God picks the winners, but then you'd have to question if that was true, how would
                      you explain some of the pass winners.
                      There truly is a dark side to the lottery.  Most blow the money and are bankrupt within the first 5 yrs.  Half get divorce.  Lives are 
                      destroyed from drugs.  They no longer trust anyone. 
                      You win the lottery they throw the money at you.  And you either sink or swim.  They could care less.  Doesn't make much sence to me.
                      Just a idea on the side, you would think that the lottery would provide some sort of money management course or study to  help
                      those who win.

                        "I think  anyone that plays should have an equal chance to win, its random and luck."

                        If 1000 pick-3 players each played a different number, each of them have the same 999 to 1 chance of winning. But since we know only one number will be drawn, 999 players have an equal chance of losing.

                        "Just a idea on the side, you would think that the lottery would provide some sort of money management course or study to  help those who win."

                        If the lotteries are the experts on money management, they should provide their services to Federal, State, and Local governments.

                          Yeah, all that time educating yourself at the finest schools in the world, getting a law degree and clerking for some rather well-respected judges clearly doesn't qualify you to be President or Attorney General in America, LOL. Clearly, only you can arbitrarily decide who is and isn't qualified.

                          I do agree that illegal aliens shouldn't be allowed to play. Mainly because states use the lottery to raise revenues to supplement their taxes, and to just hand a prize to someone whose official tax contributions are minimal is a slap in the face to all legal tax-paying American citizens.

                            We don't know anything about your hero's education, jack. We don't know jack, jack.

                            He's had every record, everywhere he's been, locked up so nobody can even question, much less investigate, anything about his education. The fact that almost nobody remembers seeing him where he says he was doesn't help much either. But again, he has sequestered all his records for some reason.

                            So bringing up his "claimed" education means absolutely nothing.

                            But above and beyond that, just seeing the incompetence of these two bungling idiots (Obama and Holder) is quite enough to make the rational judgement that most intelligent Americans have made - that these two guys are in waaaaaay over their heads.

                              I'm pretty certain that the President of America is not anti-American, but then, I'm talking to some idiot who probably still believes that he's a secret Muslim born in Kenya. Good luck hunting down that birth certificate, LOL.
