You are ASSuming that it's legit.

I researched lottery winners several years ago, and over 70%worked for GOVERNMENT in some capacity, usually state or local but govt. nonetheless. This was waay before Bush began his massive expansion of federal govt. My findings clearly point to something HINKY going on.

One of the winning powerball tickets sold was in Fountain Hills AZ.

Now if you look up Fountain Hills its a small community of some very nice looking retirement homes, exclusive golf courses and estates homes, next to Scottsdale AZ, where there are many wealthy folks who live there.

Chances are, the lucky winner is an old retiree already rich.

...so unfair...whaaaaaa!

Re: Powerball Winner - The Rich just got Richer!
honestly, so what?

They had the same odds you did, and paid the same price per ticket as anyone else.

Its people like those of you crying about it being "unfair" that are going to lead to the ruin of any country. Sometimes, people win, sometimes they lose. Deal with it.

Interesting income statistics between the two cities of Fountain Hills AZ and Dearborn MO.

That's almost a quarter of the population
[link to www.city-data.com]

Fountain Hills, AZ

Probably even higher now in 2012 (There was no poverty statistics for Fountain Hill, AZ)

It's fair to the person who won it. Just because somebody worked hard his entire life and saved for a comfortable retirement doesn't mean he is less deserving.

Re: Powerball Winner - The Rich just got Richer!
News article this AM said that 75% of all lottery winners are BROKE WITHIN 5 YEARS!!

Winning the Lottery is a FINANCIAL CURSE to MOST WHO WIN IT!!


Know a couple of financial planners who have now represented MANY lottery winners ... and both have thrown up their hands after virtually all have run through the money quickly and now advise the winners to TAKE THE PAYMENTS!!

That way the winner is still ON A BUDGET and it is hard to blow the entire amount in just 2 to 5 years. Having a yearly payment really serves to keep the winner's spending in check they both tell me.

Even though their tax records will show it?
