“So the usless U.N. now APPROVES a TERRORIST COUNTRY. How sad, but then the U.N. is nothing more than a money pit for the U.S. If your obamba want a muslim, the U.S. might have had balls and say NO.”

“"if your obamba"?? Huh? "want a Muslim"?? Huh?? "the US might have had balls and say NO"?? Huh??
IF you're actually TRYING to "say", at the end there, that the US actually voted FOR this,..uhmmmm, I guess you can't read OR write/type. The US has had no "balls" to stand up for the Palestinians RIGHTS since they FORCED these people from THEIR LAND to give it to the Jews.”

You didn't read the article. The UN did NOT approve Israel.”

“How sad that a terrorist state that was backed by US government was approved by UN 65 years ago in Nov 29, 1947.”
“So like BILL is going after the OLD people now. And I see he still likes to mock the blacks. First he gets an office in Harlem, but only goes there about 3 times a year(look at OT for NYC's police, its public or should I say PUBIC WHEN using Mr. Bills name). And as for up to 2005, I see he still liked to make jokes, about the black thing and the HOODIE. He like to joke, but was really serious about their dress.”
“I am most PROUD, to add, you LIBS, sure hate the truth. O' by the way, I used the same comment, word for word but not in the same order so as not to be told the comment was already posted, except for one word change, that was I changed Romney out. SO just like the POST and you libs, you only allow one side of the story. GO AHAED, CHECK THE POST, IT WAS ABOUT 20 BEFORE I changed it. LIBS, ENJOY your MERICA.”

“Rich upper-class people, living in racially segregated communities are no better in Connecticut than in Texas. The difference? Republicans believe those same people actually give a damn about them when in reality none of them do.”

“For consistency purposes, I call your comment just as dumb as the irrelevant comments the liberals make about red states.”
“Son, we are trying to get the NEW MERICA going. WE are MOVING FORWARD, one issue at a time. BENDING stories, and giving out false information is not what we are about. YOU can join us, YOU can be part of the MOVING FORWARD MOVEMENT. YES, increases in taxes is needed. BUT we also want to start the process of redistribution of wealth, salary caps, export ILLEGALS, we are MOVING FORWARD from the ashes of the old america to the NEW MERICA. JOIN US, say it, teach it, do it. MOVING FORWARD. (AND please keep it clean, keep it honest. we want a clean HONEST face)”
“I think your in some kind of a dream world. I am afraid I have to go against another, but the salary elected officials is usually much lower than the ones they had. That is both DEMOCRATS and re-pukes. If we could just do away with the military we could end the hugh draw it and the Veterns have on the budget. School teachers would beneifit much more with the money. WHAT WE ARE going to do is redistribution of wealth, salary caps, export the ILLEGALS(another draw on MEDICARE-MEDICADE). We do feel that S.S. is way out of where it was intended and that is going to get worse unless we start cutting now. SO, come join us our moto: MOVING FORWARD, ONE issue at a time, from the old america to the new, NEW MERICA. JOIN US, do it, say it, teach it, MOVING FORWARD”
“OK, so how much does one get with that amout??? I know you dont get the amount they say, then you have to pay taxes on what you do get. Why do they say one amount, but only give you a lesser amount you have to pay tax on???”

“Even so, whatever they get, if it's more than 5 million, aren't they joining the 1% WITH OUR HELP?
Million dollar winners every draw, no matter how many millions, they keep drawing to the end, every game, every week ..........in 1 or 2 years, the economy will pick up so fast it make heads
spin. Of course it's SOCIALISM one dollar at a time, but I'll bet everyone will play.”

“About 278 M if you take lump sum. They snatch fed tax right off, and State tax if your state has income tax, and you'd be left with something in the neighborhood of 180 Million. A it mor if no inc tax your state.
As to why so little for lump sum..........
Easy..... If they gave you the 425M up front, there wouldn't be much left for the states.
They take the jackpot and put it in an interest bearing TRUST account which then doles out the winner's annuity.
I'm not sure of the EXACT methods/amounts but.......
If you take the annuity, you'd get 21 miilion 250 thousand per year for 20 years. (Pre-tax)
If they put the 425 M in a trust and it earns 5%, guess what.... That's 21M250Th a year in interest and then.......
The 425 Million "Principle" is still in the trust fund for......... the States !

“there is a website, usamega.com, under jackpot analysis, that gives you pretty much the exact breakdown of what you would win, state by state, after federal and state taxes. it also tells you the amounts for annuity payouts. very informative and updated quickly for reconfigured jackpots.”

“It depends on the state that you live in. Cash option is variable as well. Powerball is usually around 65% while megamillions cash option is around 75% of the posted lottery prize. You then pay the top federal and state tax bracket. Oregon is 11% and Federal is ? I believe they take out 25% from the check but the top tax bracket is higher so you can owe more at the end of the year. What is the top Federal tax bracket - 28%, 32%? Good news is you don't pay the 7.65% Fica...”

“Well, I have news for you. Fancy Feast at my Publix store here in Miami has gone up from 50 cents a can last year to 65 cents. Grandma may have to go with the store brand.”
“VERY SIMPLE ADVICE: subtract your age from that which you hope to live to, lets say you are 42, you would like to live 5 years longer that your oldest KIN, who passed on at age 78. 78+ 5= 83.... SO 83 - 42 = 41 years( Take the amount you GET after taxes, etc. Divide by 41. This is what you get to spent,. Now most important reduce that amount by 10% you put into a trust fund to be used in the event you live longer than 83 and the roll over(AFTER YOUR DEAD) goes to NSPCA. THE ONLY real important item you MUST buy is a health insurance policy that covers you for everything and it your family has not been on your case about money, 1 HE LL of a large insurance policy. Hey if they were nice, give a little.... If you SAM and GREED will have you in the poor house.
If you do this right off, you will learn how to live on the about you GET.”
“You fools think this is good, its going to be another BROTHERHOOD country. Once they own the Middle-east, do yu think yu goen be safe???? So long JEWS to start. This counry for the past 3 years is on the wrong side of the track and its already come back”

“When you support freedom, you have to support people's right to choose their own leaders. Otherwise, it's not freedom. And once the people of the middle east own their own country's, they'll be concentrating on their own welfare.
Regardless ... it's their problems that they'll deal with. "We" don't have to do anything.”
