And you still haven't had an original thought, have you?

Here's an original thought, finish your bottle and pass out. Silence is golden.

    Ditto barbie, your wasting my precious time.

    Precious time?

    What were you going to do, McDoofus?

    Hang out in the parking lot of that dumpy apartment building you live in?

        I wouldn't call you dumb, kapla.

        Just people who ask loaded questions or take cheap shots at Christianity because they think it's in vogue with the "cool crowd" at the time.

        The first part of the questions makes no sense because we never get to vote on any policies. And the winners will still pay a fraction under 35% in Federal taxes regardless whether they support the current policies or not (as if their support actually means anything).

        "Just people who ask loaded questions or take cheap shots at Christianity because they think it's in vogue with the "cool crowd" at the time."

        That's why they asked "What would Jesus do with your winnings" and why the first answer was a cheap shot. I suppose it's part of the territory when the only lottery related posts some people can make are "congrats to the winner" and "I hope you win".

                      What you don't know about appears to be reading and writing and spelling.

                      Of course, in that dump you live in, you're probably not the only one who can't spell, are ya, McDoofus?

                          Not to change the subject but why hasn't a big jackpot lottery winner written a book and documented the letters and emails they received after winning? " Letters to a lottery winner" . Seriously.  I want to read such a book.  I will write this book if I win.

                            You didn't take the cheap shot at Christians, Googler. That was McDoofus.

                            You just asked a loaded question, in effect - should we continue our current policies which benefit only the rich?

                            Not a lot of wiggle room there.

                            Then McDoofus predictably jumped at the opportunity to sucker-punch Christians, simply because it's a popular thing for libs to do right now in the current political climate.

                            I never said continue.  The question was, "Should you vote for and support policies that benefit only the rich as you wait to win the lottery?"

                            The question is really asking should we vote and support policies that work against our own financial interest, while we wait to win the lottery. 

                            During this slow moving recovery the rich have pocketed over 60% of the incomes. A democracy can't sustain itself without hope in the minds of the poor and middle class people. Ronald Regan even knew this basic fact.

                            My answer is that if everyone worked against their own interest, there would be no functioning country to enjoy your winnings.

                              Go clean up the garbage in the hallway in that dump, McDoofus.

                              Get one of the other functioning illiterate neighbors to help you.

                              You do know how to clean a house, don't you?
