I thought the LOTTERY was the answer to all our education problems!!!

Why isn't a teacher raise included in the lottery loot?

Because all the hype about the lottery and education was a bold face lie to allow the Democrat politicians in Raleigh to continue to line their pockets, their friends pockets. It is another way to allow legalized stealing from the poorest of the poor to be used by the rich to get richer. Funny how the Democrats in Raleigh scream about GB's tax cuts but yet pull a con like this on their citizens.

No individual is forced to play the lottery, it is a matter of choice! If "Ticker" has any evidence of "Politicians in Raleigh and their friends lining their pockets" he should inform the NC SBI or appropriate DA, guess that won't happen. The lottery funds are audited and accounted for, unlike the billions of our dollars that have been stolen in plain sight in Iraq. "W's" tax cuts only helped his rich friends while he ran up deficits we all will have to pay, along with our children and grandchildren. How about that lottery in Texas? I'll bet "Ticker" plays it!

You got any proof? Heck, do you have as much as anecdotal evidence?

I don't like the lottery either, but at least have the integrity to back up your statements with reality-based data.
