Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/1/2018 7:05:14 PM

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.

On Sunday protesters clashed with police in Tunis. Some young men threw stones and police used tear gas, local reports said. The protests were staged in the run-up to the seventh anniversary of the ousting of President Zine El Abiding Ben Ali in 2011, an event that signaled the beginning to the Arab Spring. Most in the region are not looking back at those momentous events. Instead they are dealing with the aftereffects and many governments appear to hope that not discussing the Arab spring will mean the causes of the frustration that led to it will go away.

Washington - U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday thanked the ruler of Qatar for “action to counter terrorism and extremism in all forms,” the White House said in a statement that suggested a warming of ties between the two countries. In June, Trump had called on Qatar to stop funding groups that commit terrorism, saying the Gulf nation had historically done so “at a very high level.” Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, who along with Qatar are members of the Gulf Cooperation Council, plus non-GCC member Egypt cut off diplomatic, travel and trade ties with Qatar last year, accusing it of supporting militants and

Trump marks Martin Luther King Jr.
Day at Florida golf club
Washington Times, by Dave Boyer    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 1/15/2018 6:31:44     Post Reply
If actions speak louder than words, President Trump’s actions Monday on Martin Luther King Jr. Day were restrained, amid persistent accusations of racism. In a sharp departure from his predecessors on the national day of service, Mr. Trump spent the bulk of the holiday at his golf club in West Palm Beach, Florida. President George W. Bush typically marked the holiday with a public event such as attending a service honoring King at a Baptist church in Landover, Maryland, or greeting volunteers at a public high school in Washington. President Barack Obama normally celebrated the King holiday by taking his daughters to serve food

A conservative advocacy group is rallying its supporters against Scholastic for publishing a popular children´s book about transgender kids. One Million Moms, a self-dubbed "pro-family" group of the American Family Association, called on its website last week for Scholastic to discontinue publishing George, a chapter book intended for kids in grades 3 to 7 and written by queer activist and author Alex Gino. The story is about a transgender fourth-grader who hopes to play Charlotte in her school’s upcoming production of Charlotte’s Web.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday blamed Senator Dick Durbin for blowing up talks on a deal to help immigrants brought to the country illegally as children and said the Democratic lawmaker from Illinois misrepresented his comments about Haiti and African countries. "Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting," Trump said in a post on Twitter, referring to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that gave legal protection to the young immigrants known as "Dreamers." Durbin has said Trump used the term "s___hole" when speaking about Haiti and African

Glenn Simpson, whose investigative firm Fusion GPS produced the unverified Democrat-financed dossier, bemoaned the fact he could not persuade The New York Times to run a Trump-Russia conspiracy story days before the Nov. 8, 2016, election. Fusion had lobbied the Times by having dossier author and British ex-spy Christopher Steele personally brief its reporter and other selected media outlets during two sessions. Mr. Steele argued there was an “extensive” conspiracy between the Donald Trump campaign and the Kremlin to hack Democratic Party computers whose emails were stolen by Russia and released by WikiLeaks.

New York - A new trend is sweeping social media - and it has the potential to be deadly. Called the “Tide Pod Challenge,” the new viral trend sees teens filming themselves while they attempt to eat Tide laundry detergent pods, before challenging others to do the same - and the videos are horrifying and dangerous. According to reports, the challenge was originally featured as a joke in The Onion, a satirical news organisation. But the challenge soon became real after circulating on social media - with multiple videos uploaded (Snip) Biting down, the pod oozes detergent, and the YouTuber immediately attempts to spit it out.

Salt Lake City - A few days after Senator Orrin G. Hatch of Utah announced that he would conclude his tenure after serving 42 years in office, the state’s governor, Gary Herbert, was growing anxious about whether Mitt Romney would run for the seat. “Let’s not be coy about this,” Mr. Herbert said he told a close Romney friend and prominent business leader, Kem Gardner. “If he’s going to run, let’s go. If not, we need to find somebody else to run, and there’s people that have been trying to queue up for the opportunity.” Last Saturday, Mr. Gardner called the governor and read from a text that Mr. Romney had offered: “I’m

This Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the NAACP wants man-made global warming to be seen as a civil rights issue, arguing King’s vision of a society free of racial injustice can’t be achieved without addressing warming. “We see climate change as a civil rights issue,” Jacqueline Patterson, head of the NAACP’s environmental and climate justice program, said in an online radio spot for the Yale Center for Environmental Connection. Environmental activists have been increasingly framing global warming as a matter of “environmental justice,” since “minority and low-income populations are disproportionately affected by global warming,” Patterson told Yale’s online radio Climate

Mitt Romney took a swipe at Donald Trump on Monday, condemning the crude comments the president was said to have made about Haiti and African countries -- calling them “inconsistent (with) America’s history and antithetical to American values” with a reference to Martin Luther King, Jr. The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race,” Romney tweeted. “The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/America’s history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & ‘charity for all.’”

The most recent attack on the president is designed to throw him off balance during the debate on immigration. Senator Durbin, doing his best Claude Rains imitation, stated, "I cannot believe that, in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday." Durbin was responding to Trump´s alleged comment that Haiti, El Salvador, and certain African countries are "s---holes." Many of the reports omit mention of El Salvador because it does not fit the anti-black allegations. Senator Durbin is not a young man, and he

TRENTON, N.J. — Days before his inauguration as New Jersey’s 56th governor, Phil Murphy had Hollywood on his mind.

Why would my 22-year-old brother be calling so early on a Saturday morning? I’d ignored the first call. But the second time the phone rang, I picked it up. He was panicking, his voice trembling uncharacteristically: He’d just received the emergency alert warning of a ballistic missile that was heading for Hawaii, where I’m from, and where he and my family still live. “THIS IS NOT A DRILL,” the alert read. My brother was alone, and had no idea what to do or where to go. And he wouldn’t have had much time to figure out a game plan—some estimates

Yesterday, writing about former president Obama’s hack remark to David Letterman about the absence of “a common baseline of facts” shared by Americans, I asked whether Obama really is as shallow a thinker as he appears to be. It was not a rhetorical question. To be sure, Obama has failed to display appreciable depth since he wrote his fictionalized autobiography, Dreams From Father. His signature pronouncements and phrases are banal and borrowed. “The audacity of hope,” borrowed from his spiritual mentor the Reverend Wright. “Just words,” lifted from Deval Patrick. “You didn’t build that,” the obnoxious contribution of Elizabeth Warren. “Right
