I guess what ya'll read on my site is NOT of

see the evidence that I do qualify under Gov

the links to previous postings of great interest. It

Playing the Lottery is
Not Worth Dying Over

Italy, Spain & China suspended
lottery sales in an attempt to
protect their citizens. Obviously,
the US doesn't care because
they are continuing to lure millions
of players from their homes
each day for the sole purpose
of purchasing lottery tickets
- a non- essential product.
What a confusing message
officials have sent ... They say,
"stay at home and only leave
to purchase "essential" items -
if your caught going out
you could be fined
" as they
continue to allow the sale of
lottery products. A must read.

Stabbing Lottery Players

If you ever needed proof that our
elected officials only cared about
your money with no consumer
protection, this is it! The AG will
allow the TLC to sell deceptive
tickets, inflate prize amounts
causing you to pay higher
taxes, and allows the TLC

The Tax Break Shenanigans
of J. Winston Krause

In 2008, Commissioner Krause sued the
IRS to get a refund of interest and penalties
he had paid for a disallowed deduction
and income. The disallowed deduction ...
he bought Canadian dollars for $20K;
claimed he paid $2.8 million; he showed
a loss of <$2.7 million> yet he had
sold the Canadian dollars for $19.5K.
A 2010 5th Circuit of Appeals quote ...
