Re: Poor Households Earning $13K Per Year Spend Over $1K On Lottery Tickets
You people are so fucked in the head. Ragging on poor people because they hope to win on a lottery purchase. What makes them so different from people who have money and play the lottery to get richer? No one seems to remember the rich from the south who was already a millionaire and won a 300 million plus lottery. Ending losing his grand daughter over having more money. And what you cocksuckers especially BRIEF is that most rich people have made their money on the downfall of other people. Perfect example is Hardcore Pawn! Making money on poor people. I always love the parable about rich people - a camel has a better chance fitting through the eye of needle, than a rich person making it into the kingdom of heaven!

Pure exploitation.

People who envy them are as immoral as them.

Trash see trash do.

My neighbor who beat her son spent his child support on the casino. She was a real winner.

In certain circles, gambling is called the "stupid tax" for good reason.

Poor people do poor people things, rich people do rich people things...

Poor people use the lottery as a retirement plan, rich people save and invest...

Yes but the result is the same, or haven't you been watching the economy
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26223460


Well, I'm but one person...I like to think I'm making a difference...I mean, I know I am, one family at a time, but on a large scale it's insignificant. It may be a losing battle, but I won't give up counseling people to help them get out of debt and start making good decisions with money.

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.

A big win is a poor persons ONLY chance at escaping their situation in life.
 Quoting: Kirk


That's bullshit...they need to change their thinking and poor habits and they can climb out of poverty...it's just easier to throw your hands up and say fuck it I'll just play the lottery...
 Quoting: BRIEF


they don't have your skills. They are unable to compete - A true story might help here. A nice lady was widowed and got 90,000 life insurance. She said (no bullshit) another 10,000 and I would be a millionaire. So there you have it - a no hoper.
 Quoting: Kirk


Look, I can do a lot, but I can't fix stupid...

Poor people are the victims of the private and government casino mafia, not the perpetrators, not the criminals.

They are committing financial suicide, old people on social security get really depressed and decide to risk all their money on gambling, when they have no other hope.

You go into ANY casino, ANYWHERE, and it's just about all senile old people, spending their social security checks.
