Ok so say you won "The big jackpot" Wednesday night.....as a new winner would you feel obligated to help people less fortunate than you?? Like for instance someone writes you or calls and says they can't pay their mortage......would you "bail" them out?? Or just bail? Can't people just keep on paying their bills and hope someone will help them or should we as potential lottery jackpot winners just bail folks out...You all know my motto by now....

 

I HAVE NO PROBLEM SAYING NO!!!!!!!!!!!

    take a hard look at how much in fed/state taxes are taken out and tell me how much more you can help with a straight face.

        Where do you come with such an idea?  Many people have a lot more than that and only feel contempt for those less fortunate than themselves because they believe they had the same opportunity as themselves and didn't take advantage of them.

                  and that's fine.

                  But as far as your thread title questions,I know it would be waaaaay down on the bottom my list of things to do.

                    Are you saying getting someone to strip is a way to help the less fortunate?  Maybe getting them to kiss a rich person behind could also help.

                      No that's not what I'm saying...Are u saying money gotten from getting someone to strip can't be given to the less fortunate? they're less fortunate and I don't think there gonna care where it came from as long as they can get their hands on it

                          The only people I am sharing with is my family because that is who is with me when I had nothing.  If I win then it is my money so I am free to spend it however I want too.  Not on beggers but loved ones who mean something to me is who I will help!-weshar75

                            You have the right to do whatever you want to with your winnings.  No shame in that game.  I want to help others, but it won't be those that write or call.  There are plenty of people in my community.  That have lost their jobs.  Are having a hard time trying to paid their bills and buy expensive medicine.  Their not this way because they are lazy or want a free handout.  they just don't qualify for any government assistance.  I don't even have to let them know that I am the one helping them.  Don't feel obligated to help people.  Just love to give back.

                              it won't be your choice to give money away. The government will take your money and redistribute it to people they think are more deserving and the government won't take no for an answer.
