Which starts with a lottery

the arkansas lottery has been a wild success for education.

or, pull a colorado and legalize weed with a 20% tax that goes straight to education. there are many solution for those willing to consider options outside of the box, but thats not necessarily alabama's strong suit.

No it doesn't start with a lottery.....I'm all for lotteries, just completely against one funding a function of govt.  Read a few years ago after lottery revenue had diminished drastically, that Florida spent over 60% of lottery revenue, in the year this article was written, on advertising the lottery.....when govt is begging the public to gamble to support a function of govt then something is terribly wrong.

When govt creates a lottery to fund education, they don't add that additional new lottery revenue to the current monies already in the education budget, THEY REPLACE THOSE PREVIOUSLY EARMARKED MONIES WITH LOTTERY REVENUE, IT NOW BECOMING THE SOURCE OF EDUCATION MONIES, WITH THE OTHER PREVIOUSLY EAR MARKED MONIES GOING BACK INTO THE GENERAL FUND.  In other words, the lottery perpetuates govt malfeasance by throwing fuel on the fire.

If anything, the Southern states need to pour money into education. The biggest reason big business won't relocate here is because they see our people as being too stupid to work technical jobs, and a lot of that comes from our backward educational system.



With your statement, apparently you aren't aware of all the industries leaving other parts of the country and setting up shop in the south because what you said is the exact opposite of the truth

That's exactly what happened in Kentucky when they started a lottery.  They advertsed that the lottery money would go into the education fund and we voted for it.  I lived there when that happened (in the '80s).  They took the lottery money and put it into the education fund; however, they cut money in the education fund by the same amount.  It kind of pissed everyone I knew off when that happened.

Then I moved to Georgia and when the lottery went to a vote, I was completely against it thinking Georgia would do the same thing (lived there in the early '90s).  However, Georgia did it right.  They created the Hope Scholarship which was used to pay for HS students going to a state-sponsored college, as long as they had a 3.0 average out of HS and maintained it (at least I think that's the average).  Then they found out they had extra money coming in from the lottery and used it to pay for books for college students (when I left it was $100 per semester for books).

So, I've seen one state do it right and one state do it wrong.  Not sure if Kentucky ever changed or not.

I always thought they were just a terrorist sleeper cell.  Add a hyphen an all of a sudden it looks rather suspicious "Al-Abama" which is Arabic for "the Abama"  Case closed.

Viva la Independence?  


"And thus according to @Gidnik's prophetic post, it came to pass that Alabama and Mississippi were ceremoniously kicked out of the Union in 2015. Lincoln rolled in his grave, whilst Phillip Bryant and Robert Bentley popped champagne. In the time following independence, the two former states consolidated everything into one, becoming known as Alassippi."

In what world is it ok to have 20 casinos but not a lottery

Is this not the stupidest thing ever? Ever? People bitch about those casinos, buy those casinos are the coast. They've been what has kept South MS alive.
