    Gambling is fun? come one ,are you for real? some people lost all their life savings,some commit suicide,some peoples lives are in ruins and your telling me,gambling is fun? Your gambling money goes for a jackpot winner or for a state... if you dont know what to do with them..give it to poor people.

    Yes it is fun! Gambling for many of us is just another choice we make and for folks with an addiction there are avenues of help available for them to help them to control their own problem and make better choices.

    Then are you saying that we should have government dictate to us what we can and can't do with our own money because a few can't manage their own lives? That's just like saying that we should ban gun's and recind the 2nd Amendment because a few idiot kids can't manage their own anger.

    People shouldn't blame our freedoms for their lack of education or personal problems, we all make our OWN choices, own up to the ones you make.

          Lawd Have Mercy. The lottery is unfair? Well, so is life!

          Anytime you spend money, you're taking a chance. It's all about chance and luck.

          I love to see people who need the money win! But lady luck doesn't always choose those in need. As a matter of fact, I was watching a lottery show on TV just last week about a doctor who won a jackpot...100+ million. The doctor thought she was get congratulated by her staff upon winning, but the exact opposite happened. They all turned on her. Their views were like many others...She was already a millionaire! She didn't need the money! We've been playing steadily for years, and we're working from paycheck to paycheck! Why couldn't it be US???????  The lottery may seem unfair and it's up to you if you want to invest monies into it, but you always need to remember the slogan, "You can't win if ya don't play!"
