Was one of your New Year´s resolution to become a millionaire overnight? If so you need to head to your local convenience store and buy both Powerball and Mega Millions lottery tickets. There were no winners in Saturday night´s Powerball drawing, so the jackpot has now reached $440 million. The next drawing is Wednesday night. The Mega Millions grand prize is Tuesday and it´s almost as large-- it´s up to $343 million. The combined total for those two prizes: $783 million. According to CNNMoney, it’s rare for the jackpots in both games to get so big. But it’s about to become more common. Both Mega Millions and

I stand a greater chance of being struck by lightning. But I understand the allure: if you don´t play, you can´t win. Contributed my share to the office pool last year. Finally swore it off.

I figure it´s money I´m not spending in a bar or on cigs...and cigs are what, $7/pack. I´m sure I spend less in a month (or months) than a smoker pays in a week.

There is little wonder why so many live from paycheck to paycheck. So many are so ABSOLUTELY unbelievably stupid. The higher they raise the odds on a lottery game, the more ticket they sell . . . Explain to me the genius in that.

The article fails to mention that both of these lotteries have doubled the ticket price from $1 per ticket to $2/ticket.

Don´t bother to buy tickets. The guy at the convenience store told me he sold me both the winning tickets for each lottery last night.

I´d hate to take your money.

Everybody would play if it was easy to win. What they´re selling is the hope of winning. Hope is a quality with no boundary.

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) said that Peter Strzok has done more damage than any other modern-day FBI agent because of his anti-Trump conduct. Strzok was subpoenaed by the House Judiciary Committee to appear before Congress next week regarding findings found in the Justice Department inspector general´s long-anticipated report on the Clinton email scandal. Inspector General Michael Horowitz concluded that the FBI´s handling of the Clinton and Russia investigations was not motivated by political bias, though he singled out former FBI Director James Comey for harsh criticism and referred five other bureau

Office of Management & Budget Director Mick Mulvaney gave an intricate and often eccentric explanation of redundancy and overlap in federal bureaucracy in a presentation that stunned the president and the press. (Snip) He criticized the "Byzantine nature" by which the government regulates, creating headaches for business owners, employees and taxpayers. "If you have a cheese pizza, it´s governed by the Food & Drug Administration. If you put a pepperoni on it, it´s governed by the [Department of Agriculture]," he said.

Charles Krauthammer made people understand their own thoughts. It was Charles who collated the various strands of Ronald Reagan’s foreign policy and codified them as the Reagan Doctrine in a Time Magazine essay in 1985. He did the same with the Bush Doctrine 16 years later—and his codification played a role in how Bush himself came to formulate his approach to the world following 9/11. And in 2009, Charles codified the Obama Doctrine as well, although not by that name, in a speech he turned into one of the great articles of our time, “Decline Is a Choice.” I was there when he delivered that speech and rushed up to him

The Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Hillary Clinton have a HUGE Weiner problem that is even bigger than we first realized. According to the recently released inspector general report, on September 28 and 29, 2016 the New York office of the FBI immediately reported to the Washington headquarters its discovery of, first, 141,000 and then 350,000 emails on the laptop of Anthony Weiner — also known as “Carlos Danger,” a now-convicted sex offender. Mr. Weiner is the husband of Hillary Clinton’s inseparable aide Huma Abedin. Now we know by October 4, the New York office had found 700,000 emails.

Throughout Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s massive report on the Hillary Clinton email investigation are lots of strange things. One of the weirdest is the extent to which the FBI went to make up words and phrases to disguise reality.An early draft of the 2016 FBI report on the email scandal was reportedly subjected to linguistic surgery to exonerate the former secretary of state, who at the time was the Democratic nominee for president. Clinton was originally found to be “grossly negligent” in using an illegal email server. That legalistic phrase is used by prosecutors to indict for violation of laws governing .

She cried and kissed her boy in front of a group of reporters. Mejia-Mejia sued the federal government to find out where Darwin was being held after they were separated at the border after a long journey from Guatemala, according to the lawsuit.

New York gubernatorial candidate and former “Sex and the City” star Cynthia Nixon on Thursday called U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) “a terrorist organization” and called for its abolition, pitting progressive New Yorkers against Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Nixon made her remarks at a church on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, where an illegal immigrant is taking sanctuary after being threatened with deportation after she failed to show a driver’s license during a traffic stop by ICE agents. “ICE has strayed so far away from its mission. It is supposed to be here to keep Americans safe but what it has turned into,

The Supreme Court on Friday put new restraints on law enforcement’s access to the ever-increasing amount of private information about Americans available in the digital age. In the specific case before the court, the justices ruled that authorities generally must obtain a warrant to gain access to cell-tower records that can provide a virtual timeline and map of a person’s whereabouts. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. wrote the 5 to 4 decision, in which he was joined by the court’s liberal members.

"I Really Don´t Care. Do U?" When the first lady, Melania Trump, on a surprise humanitarian visit to a children’s shelter in Texas, strode onto her airplane in an olive green Zara army jacket with those words scrawled in faux white graffiti on the back, it sent the watching world into what might be called, with some understatement, a meltdown. (Snip) “It’s a jacket,” her communications director, Stephanie Grisham, said in a statement to reporters. “There was no hidden message.” She’s right, of course. It wasn’t hidden. It was literally written on the first lady’s back. The question is: Who was the intended audience?

The latest cuts to the division that was once SolarCity - a sales and installation company founded by two cousins of Tesla CEO Elon Musk - include closing about a dozen installation facilities, according to internal company documents, and ending a retail partnership with Home Depot Inc

An op-ed in Friday’s Washington Post by the long-time political pundit and conservative calls for voters to end the “carnage of Republican misrule” in Washington. Mr. Will claimed the “most telegenic example” of a need to oust Republicans exists with the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy regarding illegal immigrants along the U.S. southern border. “The Republican-controlled Congress, which waited for Trump to undo by unilateral decree the border folly they could have prevented by actually legislating, is an advertisement for the unimportance of

Taxes: Whatever you think about the issue of taxing internet sales, the simple fact is that the Supreme Court has just guaranteed that people across the country will now be paying more in state taxes. It´s hard for us to see how this is good news. In its 5-4 decision on South Dakota v. Wayfair, the court overturned two previous rulings that prevented states from taxing sales of out-of-state companies. That meant a catalog company based in Maine didn´t have to navigate 45 state sales-tax laws to figure out how much each customer owed, and then remit that money to the

How´s this for sneaky? Sen. John McCain, not too long after seeking conservative and Republican votes in his failed 2008 bid for the presidency, went right after those same conservative voters without telling them, by egging on the IRS to ruin them. It´s the sort of political back-stabbing that defies belief, taking an active role in destroying the Tea Party, which was an authentic grassroots movement of local groups calling for smaller government. But sure enough, Judicial Watch has found McCain´s central role right there in the documents: Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen.
