Lottery = a tax on the poor.

Lottery = a tax on the willing.

At least that's the way Thomas Jefferson saw it.

From what I'm reading here, lotteries are the end of civilization as we know it.

We must protect the ignorant from themselves!

I make good money selling lottery games (including Keno) in my bar. I don't play 'em, but I sure am glad a lot of other people do! Most of the players are hardworking folks who like to dream about winning a truckload of money.

It's entertainment, pure and simple.
