Earned the right? Now just how the hell do you earn the right to play internet sweepstakes. Although I see these places as doing nothing wrong and if one chooses to waste their money thats fine. But to say "earn the right" That makes no sense. But then again the things that come from the mouths and minds of those in the inbred south seldom do make sense.

the most wealthy people usually come from the south. Maybe you should try inbreeding it could possibly help your bank account. You obviously have no money and money is what classifies stature so please expand your knowledge of the south friend.

The issue was not who has money. The question was about earning the right....Just how is the right to play sweepstakes something that is "earned"? Now in regard to your statement ...my bank account is just fine. I will not go to the redneck level of a pissing contest about who has what. But you do need to study Sociolgy and U.S. History a bit. First it is not money that makes status. It is education and position. A good example...a long haul truck driver may make 100,000. a yr. a college professor may only make 50,000. Which one is more likley to be invited to dine with the Governor? Also as far as history is concerned the money in this nation did not come from the south. One of the reasons the South could not sustain the fight in the Civil War was the fact they were broke. The proble with the south today is that there 30 year olds laying on their asses in the trailer watching COPS, Springer and Dukes of Hazzard waiting on their governemt check. They should get up, get a job and stop thinking life is a damn country song.

Howard: I don't really have a desire to play sweepstakes and I have no problem with anyone doing so. I just feel there are some things that are more of a privilage than a right that is earned. Retirement is earned and sweepstakes, travel or just sitting at home is a privilage. Just my thoughts. As far as my attitude haha made ignorant statements about money and such that has nothing to with it. Haha went even further to show total ignorance of U.S. History. You are right that I shouldn't sterotype people as I do. That is wrong on my part and I admit that. I just get very tired of knowing that this nation is in the shape it is due in part to ignorance of the people.
