[quote:Anonymous Coward 28569456:MV8yMDY2MTAxXzM0NzY3ODQ2X0U3RjY0NTFE] The problem is that the western media is showing a life model which is wrong! In tv everyone is lucky, beautiful, happy and rich but no one is working, just fun, sun shine, sex and consume. Poor people see this model since childhood but never see the reality that it is hard to work properly, but anyway- in the USA this behavour is normal and even protected by the law. (the quest of happiness) I can understand them because being poor is no fun and you feel bad!!! Imo this big jackpots and the media reports must be stopped, they need to find a healthy balance!

States across the nation rely on poor suckers to fund their spending. No, we’re not talking about taxpayers – we’re talking about lottery ticket purchasers. According to new studies, households earning $13,000 per year spend almost $1,170 per year on lottery tickets – 9 percent of total income.
As it turns out, many people living in poverty make poor financial decisions.
