See the pretty ticket above? It costs a dollar. And $500.00 a week for Life is a pretty good prize, right? So here come the official NYS odds for this dream. We’ll start on the smaller prizes first – get ready to WIN!
The odds against winning $1 are 8.77 to 1. For you non-bettors, that means on average, you’d have to buy about NINE tickets to scratch off a dollar winner. But, as the brighter ones in the group have already figured out, you don’t really “win” a dollar because that’s how much you paid for the ticket. So, OK – to win a dollar, you’ve really got to win $2 on the ticket. Odds against a two dollar ticket? About 47 to 1. WHAT? That’s right, Skippy; to actually win a dollar, on average, you’d have to scratch off 47-tickets.
It gets better, right? Right, this is New York State. To win $10, you’ll have to scratch 200 tickets. $100? Get ready to buy 50- thousand, 400-tickets. That’s a lot of buying and scratching for a hundred bucks. And the Grand Prize? $500 a week for Life? Get your coin out and start scratching. Better make it a few coins, you’ll need to scratch 7,938,000 tickets.
Don’t tell anyone though. It kind of ruins the game if you know it would take almost three entire lifetimes of around-the-clock scratching to win $500 a week for the rest of your life. Plus, about $8-million dollars in tickets.

I wrote numerous articles on the Kennedy assassination last year. Today is the 51st anniversary of that murder. I did want to include again a single reference page with links for those who care about my opinions on the death of JFK.

He certainly didn’t deserve to be killed. But can anyone watch this video and not agree that in this incident, Brown was an aggressive, bullying thief who physically assaulted the poor shop owner who was just demanding Brown pay for the cheap cigars he was stealing?
This video has nothing to do with the grand jury investigation. It was released to counter the perception generated by Brown’s family and friends that Brown was an innocent, unarmed “nice guy” gunned down by a racist cop. Prosecutors and defense attorneys always take their case to the court of public opinion before the legal system goes into gear.
The grand jury investigation focuses on one thing: is there enough evidence to justify a charge that the police officer used unnecessary force in stopping what he perceived to be a life-threatening attack?
Frankly, I don’t know. And I will be satisfied with any decision the grand jury makes.
But this decision is NOT about a nation of white, racist police officers gunning down innocent, young black guys. That’s just horseshit.
One day, when Obama was a little kid, he came running into his house and shouted to his mother, “Mama! There’s a tiger in the back yard!”
The horrified woman ran to the window only to see a big, old, neighborhood dog asleep under one of their trees.
“Barry” she yelled, “I told you about lying all of the time! Now you march up those stairs, get on your knees, and tell God you’ve been lying again!” Young Barrack went up and returned a few minutes later.
“Well,” said his mom, “did you talk to God about your lying?”
“Yes,” said young Obama.
“And what did He say?”
“He said don’t worry about it – He thought it was a tiger too.”
Yesterday Obama said US combat troops will be in Afghanistan at least until the end of 2015. Last year he said it would be the end of 2014. Obama is a liar. He said there would never be more US combat troops in Iraq. There are and more are expected.
Where I come from, we call people who tell lies, LIARS. What do you call them?
