Hooray!!! There is a great lesson to be learned here.

Mr.Marquardt is a true American. He took all the risk and he has received all the reward.

He didn't ask the dang government for a handout. He spent his own money. And he made his own wise decision on how he would spend it.

Hats off to him. We need more citizens who take risks and make their own way in life. If those poor or Black people or illegals would just gamble more and work less we'd all be better off.

Bless Mr. Marquardt!!! Bless the raffle game!!! And, bless the American Way!!!

I do believe that the lottery/scratch-offs exploit the poor because they believe they have the same chance of winning as anyone else. So, the poor, as well as Black people & illegals, spend money they don't have in hopes to be that lucky one to hit it big & have a better life. They are not all working, either.

I stopped at a local convenient store to buy gas & went in to pay for it. A young lady with two little ones was, also, in there. She paid for gas, bought a carton of cigs, $20 in scratch-offs, & one lotto ticket.

I know the young lady & had a pleasant conversation with her. I, also, know she is on welfare. I definitely want to help her, but I don't want to pay for her cigarettes & gambling. Nor do I want to pay for anyone else gambling, buying cigarettes or alcohol while they are on the system. That, however, is also a part of the American Way.

GrandmaD: I was just mimicking what an editorial by The Journal would look like based on Mr. Marquardt's good luck.

Or, typical comments by our ever-flag-waving friend, bloozboy.

I think it's pretty close to the real McCoy, don't you?

Sven - dude - that was totally you & your style & how you convey your messages. That's the real McCoy, but I wouldn't have you any other way. Let me reword that - I wouldn't have it any other way. :)
