Somehow that tax ties in with the recent ∅Care ™ tax ruling.
Yeah, maybe we ought to just get rid of the State lotteries because they’re racist and all. Maybe we ought to go back to the daily undergound lottery, kept the bookies in business if nothing else. However the NAACP just may get a little upset when they remember what the “Pool” was called. But it wasn’t “racist”, because everybody played it.
I remember working in a factory in the 70s, and there was a guy whose job title was “sweeper”. He carried a broom. But he also drove a purple Eldorado and everyone seemed to stop to talk to him every single day.
Come to find out he was the numbers runner for the factory, and took everyone’s bets every day. AND he had a second sweeping job at the airport where he did the same thing.
So, at least SOME people benefited from the numbers racket.
You remember what the pool was called....
Ironically, the people they’re referring to are probably responsible for getting lottery legislation passed.
I DEMAND an end to the NAACP, because it is racist! I'm not colored and I take offense to being excluded!
The State should not be involved in any lottery in any way whatsoever.
The problem here is not the fault of the lottery but the fault of those leaders in the Black community who have indoctrinated their followers to believe that there’s a way to get rich without having to work for it.
The only thing I object to about the lotto is that it does not permit competition. The states maintain a monopoly on gambling.
Back in the evil 1980’s, Pennsylvania had a battle royal over the budget, and we passed the June 30 deadline without a budget, and Governor Thornburgh shut down the government. No checks went out after June 30.
My girlfriend was living in a neighborhood with a lot of welfare recipients who were not getting their checks. She said that they were complaining that the lottery fund was flush with cash (this was before they started paying for perscription drugs for seniors with low income out of lottery funds). They were whining that they should be getting some of the lottery fund money, because they were supporting the lottery. I told her that if they weren’t supporting the lottery, they wouldn’t need to get money from it.
I broke up with her a few weeks after that.
Anyone who bets enough to make a difference in their personal finances is stupid and should stop doing it. But then not many people are poor because they are smart.
Wow. What next? No more fried chicken, watermelon, 40 ouncers, afro sheen, high top sneakers, gold teeth, neck chain medallions, wearing your pants below your buttocks, rap music, basketball, football, and Tyler Perry movies? They need to rethink their own racist thinking.
It's not racist - it's a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (aka the Joe Biden protection act.)
Just provide for a penaltytax ( SCt term art) for anyone not buying a lotto ticket Attach a receipt or proof of purchase to your tax return or pay a +++$ penaltytax.
A nation of victims.
Elections should be ended as well. Black people are going to be exploited by Barack Obama this fall and not to their benefit or beliefs.
The worst of it is for the most part, they didn't earn the money in the first place, someone else did and was tyrannically forced to give it to them to spend how they want to.
Here's one in your corner also.
But it's spread around on white, black, brown, and red people. Ha!!
The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court will no doubt agree with this.
