Re: $1.5 Billion Lottery Winner

I’m not sure who gets the actual profits from running the lottery or if all income goes to winners. I like the Hong Kong lottery system where all profits are donated to local charities. Of course the other big winners win big every week, the company who run the lottery. That's the charity they are ...

$1.5 Billion Lottery Winner

Forgive me if I don't join in with the smiling happy clappers at the news someone in the US has won one and a half billion dollars in a lottery. Actually it saddens me somewhat. Could have had 1500 millionaires or even 150 folk getting $10m each, a far more palatable outcome in my estimation.

Re: Canada senate revokes Suu Kyi's honorary citizenship

She is probably the one person in the country who could speak out against these atrocities and live to tell the tale. Surely the problem is that she has not said even one word in the year that this genocide has taken place. I realise she must face many restrictions but she was perfectly happy to sp...

Re: Canada senate revokes Suu Kyi's honorary citizenship

But maybe she is not really in control and will be shot if she try to do things differently. Just speculating of course, Oh I think we're all aware she's not in any way "in control". Pretty sure the authorities there would love to have simply shot her many years ago but they know the inte...

Re: Another Sexual Molester for the US Supreme Court?

I'd be interested to know more from Captain Kirk. Not liking, as I do not like, the politics of "Vote for me cos the other guy/party is worse", how do you counter the gutter politics used by an opponent. When someone like Trump continuously lies and lies, attacks with no basis in fact and...

Re: Another Sexual Molester for the US Supreme Court?

So he got in then I hope the Democrats realize that if they had gone out and voted, rather than just assuming Hillary Clinton was going to win, then none of this lunacy would be going on. It seems to me the USA is on a self-destruct mode. The first sentence there I actually disagree with. It's the ...

Re: Another Sexual Molester for the US Supreme Court?

So he got in then, it was obvious to me he would. I also think that anyone believing this may sway a substantial number of voters away from the republican side will be disappointed. The vote, with one exception, came down precisely on partisan lines. I'd expect the public to react likewise. The USA ...

A righteous decision. She's certainly not turned out to be the leader everyone hoped she would.

Re: Another Sexual Molester for the US Supreme Court?

With reference to the list of wrong doers: so why do the US voting public still support two utterly corrupt institutions?
