Do you think any of your family would kill you if you won the lottery?

I'm old school too, pepper. Maybe my whole family is. I just know there's not one person that I would have to worry about doing that in my family. Even the young ones undergoing the brainwashing in the schools (which we rectify).

Maybe that's the difference. Values, morals and good character aren't stressed, taught or placed in high regard anymore in school like they used to be. What generations of kids are being taught now is "If it feels good, do it."

And it's tearing the fabric of our society and destroying our whole culture.

But ridge.

Are you too "calcified" to see that you are destroying America with that kind of talk??

They are being taught "all good things" like, reducing gasoline usage, making higher education a career, helping a negro, saving an animal and loving a gay person.

Thanks to the goobers of this world, it is a much safer and fairrier place now.

Uh...wait, is that Right??????

    ahh but Ridge - sometimes a bad-egg just turns up through the wonder of the "genetic" lottery and you end up with a crazy-uncle that everyone sighs heavily once he shows up and when he leaves everyone checks their back pockets/purses.  no amount of un-brainwashing can help in some cases.  goodness knows we all tried!  ... however, age and old-timers is helping.  :)

      pepper1, are these family members buying as much lottery and promising to share w/ you ?

      Most of them say that they would. I know the ones that would. My sister-law who want the 3million would, she's a very

      kind heart person. My other sisterlaw say that she would , but I know she run off. My parents would. My sister would

      give you a little, and not answer the phone after. I'm not saying that I wouldn't share the wealth. I just wouldn't let

      it become an issues. If you don't know than we wouldn't have a problem. My mother keeps up with the gossip in

      her small town, and when you know that a person can't hold water than don't give them the news.

        If that what you mean stay off my post...................... I don't want that kind of stuff here.

              I'm totally blown away by the responses here with so many thinking their own family members might kill them for jackpot money.

              That situation is so totally unthinkable and bizarre to me, I can't even imagine a thought like that ever entering my mind.

              Wow.

              My older brother and all the people he lives with are drug addicts and raging alcoholics. If I didn't think it was a possibility that I could be killed by these people, then I would probably end up dead.  And to be honest, I really wouldn't worry about my brother but the people around him.

                  Without the drugs and alcohol, your brother would be a different person and have different people around him. It's a shame what some people

                  become and what lows they sometimes sink to while under the influence of either. I don't think most people would actually go as far as killing

                  someone in their own family....I said some in mine might if they could get away with it...but you are wise to face the truth that with drugs and

                  alcohol involved, wrong place, wrong time for you may not feel so wrong to them.

                  I agree with rdgrnr.....be careful and stay safe...better yet, stay away.

                    Uh...wait, is that Right??????

                    What do those things have to do with morals? 'Causes' like you listed are meant to make the individual feel better....all pain free and

                    simple to be involved in yet important enough for those who take part because it gives them a sense of 'I'm doing my part'.

                    Love a gay person?

                    Why not just love all people? Why just gay? Being gay is something we're all 'taught' is now acceptable and if you don't accept it, then

                    something is wrong with you.

                    Save an animal? Well, I'm all for saving animals but not over people. Sometimes I think that's a tough choice for some people.

                    Helping a negro? Negro? Well, that's a better term than another I can think of but there are Whites that need help, so do Hispanics

                    and Asians too...HELL, a LOT of White people need help. Why center on race - just another cause to support. Don't get reeled in by

                    the 'we gotta do something now for how badly we treated them' bunk.

                    Reduce gasoline usage? Until people stop driving everywhere, anytime, all the time - there will be no savings in gas usage, unless we

                    all drive electric cars or start walking.

                    Causes are painless...morals are painful. Do the right thing and don't be guided into feeling like jumping on the bandwagon and having

                    a back patting party being part of a cause. To say that you're for something just because it's expected of you isn't really hard to do.

                    Get out there and really HELP someone, really DO something and really BE an example.

                    America is destroying itself because no one has the guts or motivation to change the very little that they do - everyone is too busy taking

                    care of number 1...themselves.
