The Mega Millions lottery prize is now over a half billion dollars. Reporters are asking ticket buyers what they would do with the money. Some say they won't quit their job. I hope Obama wins it because if I know Barry, he'll either quit his job or loan his winnings to a solar company to further his beloved green energy.
You know what? Maybe the Mega Millions lottery amount is only 50 million dollars and it's the biggest April Fool's prank in the history of the lottery commission.
Did you ever notice that people who spend money on beer, cigarettes and lottery tickets are always complaining about being broke and not feeling well?
Nevertheless, sales are going briskly and sooner or later, some one's going to win it. I know one thing, whoever wins the half billion dollars will become my long lost relative. I can see myself now...."Uncle Chow Ling, we so rucky....!"
I think Obama realizes the Obamacare thing is not looking good in front of the Supreme Court. He's starting to downplay it. Yesterday, he referred it as O'Bidencare.

The News As I See It: Gas prices are expected to continue to rise throughout the summer and both Obama and the oil companies say it's because of high demand due to warmer summer weather - as opposed to what they told us a couple of months ago, that oil prices went up because of higher demand for winter heating oil. So basically, as long as there is weather, gas prices will continue to go up.
