    As much as I want 600 million dollars I can’t imagine how many people come out of the woodwork to ask for a slice.

    I know I have some family members who would always want money.

    Just thinking out loud but does Obama allow lotteries in socialized countries?

    I wonder how that would effect his reelection.

      What Obama would allow is 1 person to win and get the satisfaction of having his/her name called out BUT he would also then tell the winner that every person in America gets an equal share in the victory.

      That way everyone would get $1 and get to join in on the fun!
