hey guys, i just downloaded free PowerBall and megamillions android app, it creates luckynumber from my favorite numbers,saves on my phone/tablet for later use, has Quickpick, has lists of all winning numbers, search for devandy the developer on google play, he has several great app. This one is good cause i only play with my families fav numbers and this store on my phone, i go to store and click and it generates the number, also gives quickpick. Name of the apps are My Mega Millions Lucky Numbers, MY POWER BALL LUCKY NUMBERS. They are adding code so u can buy lottery from your phone. Its free, and no spam. Good luck and share with poor if u win.
If the app was actually worth a damn, then you'd have won the biggie last week and most certainly wouldn't be spamming for a penny a hit on a dive such as this.

You're one of those "intellectual" Obama voters, am I right? No, that's not right, because you're trying to make money, not steal it from the rest of us. You still ain't too sharp, though.

Yes. If it were you or I who cowardly got drunk, crashed his car and left his date to drown before going home to bed, we'd still be in prison.

But does Teddy get punished for murder as he deserves? Nope! he gets re-elected a few times by the loonie left.

Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed because of inhospitality to strangers, NOT homosexuality. Have your preschool teacher explain it to you.
Fyi, our engagement was great! Our MARRIAGE is not "sick"; it's strong, and Christ-centered. You might just want to keep your nose out of our MARRIAGE, because sooner or later (decent people hope for sooner!)Marriage EQUALITY will prevail in all 50 states, plus DC. Get used to it.
Your statement "My disagreement is with the overturning of the Ban against SSM"s." is your opinion. You are against Marriage EQUALITY. Get a life, and grow UP.
I'm not opposed to marriage equality between a man and woman as marriage was created to be. Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed because of immorality and corruption.

Time to start hanging as a means of keeping the crooks under control.

Fifteen minute trials and hanging take another 15 minutes.

You are able or unwilling to consider the consequences of such a course if action. At what point does redefining marriage for whomever may ask, render marriage meaningless to society as a whole?
Countries have been recognizing same-sex unions since 1979 (The Netherlands).

Those countries where same-sex marriage are legal have hardly fallen or experienced consequences as a result.

What, exactly, are you afraid of? Are you still fearful of polygamy? Remember our discussion about the Attorney General of Virginia arguing that polygamy (as well as other ridiculous marriages) would result from allowing interracial couples to marry?

Fear of what lies ahead has never stopped legitimate progress.

Cowardice has rarely ever resulted in success.

I don't fear polygamy. I just don't endorse it.

It's been my personal and professional experience that relationships of that kind are rarely successful and happy for all members. There are alliances built, sometimes without the knowledge of all of the players. Resentments can build. People can feel lost in the crowd. It's difficult enough to manage a relationship between two people, let alone several.

I've never been in any kind of relationship that was not monogamous. I think I would be jealous. I think I would feel lonely and easily hurt.

It's not something that I could find myself getting behind. But I don't "fear" it.

If polygamy happens, then it happens. It's not likely to impact me in any way. If people want to try to live their lives in plural relationships, that's up to them. More power to them.

I think most people know enough to choose their battles. Polygamy is not my battle.

Listen to yourself bigot. Just replace polygamy with same sex marriage in your rant. You'd scream and probably vomit if someone talked that trash against SSM.

Who are you to decide if someone's marriage is worthy or viable? Polygamy deserves the same respect and consideration as SSM. They're both marriage, you know, equal.

Marriage. There is no one right way.
