$50,000,000 is a mind boggling amount and even if they give $15,000 to every one of the 3000 on the reservation, they will still have $5,000,000 left over.
White buffalos are sacred to Aboriginal people, but since not everyone can have one, perhaps white sofas will suffice! If they are buying several new homes, they will need white sofas!
Good call, Rosen!

White sofa's are great for retailers in this case. Vomit & Urine stains show up on white sofas and will be very hard to remove. This will cause them to throw it out and buy another. Like Canada's criminal justice system these sofas will be on a revolving door.
Only one drawback, what will they do with the mountain of white vomit & urine stained sofas on their front lawn?

I love how there is absolutely no racism evident in this thread what so ever. I'd like to know why no one ever asked "have they blown the money yet", or commented on "what will they do with the mountain of white vomit & urine stained sofas on their front lawn?" when other lottery winners have won some very large amounts locally as well.

Amusing how people don't mind showing their true beliefs in an anonymous online forum, but when asked in person no one admits to being a racist.

Anything I say here I have stated publically in the company of those whose organizations and motives are questionable.....so I will take a stand with regards to your blanket assessment of some remarks made in this topic and ask you to point out what vexes you in particular.

I am racist. I hate every one equally. I am an equal opportunity racist. Smile

Damnit Goth that is my stock line......heheh. All kidding aside, I do try to avoid generalizing but being that I have lived in areas where I am the "minority" I have had the pleasure and pain of up-close observation regarding certain groups of folks....and i have seen some disturbing trends as of late. Is it an overdue equalization? Perhaps so but there are far better ways to elevate oneself than playing the fu*king blame game especially when one is blaming the very society that literally pays for the avenues of recourse and recompense.

I can speak on behalf of livingdead because he is my husband. He isn't anymore racist then the next guy but he (and I) are sick and tired of the molly coddling, the crime, the welfare abuses etc etc (this also goes to ANYONE abusing the system). He isn't shy to say how he feels and if you want to take it as racist then feel free. Speaking the truth doesn't equate racism. I am like Miz p as I lived in areas where I was the minority and saw first hand. I speak from experience. LD worked in northern MB, ON, AB etc for many years and also saw first hand.

It's pretty darn racist when your making remarks towards lottery winners SPECIFICALLY because of their race. Regardless of how you may feel about the reserve system, welfare etc., making such negative comments towards people specifically bacause of their race makes you a bigot in my view. Would he walk up to the people and ask them to his face "are you broke yet" or "what will you do with the mountain of white vomit & urine stained sofas on your front lawn?" Of course not, unless he expects to get punched in the face.

It's one thing to make comment's like this on the internet, and then claim your "not a racist" Sorry, but if you can't say the comments you make about the people your talking about to their face then you probably shouldn't be making them.

Knowing LD he probably would. Would you have the balls to say any of this to our faces? I doubt it. So lets make that plan to meet? How does Saturday Dec 5th work for you? We have a concert that night but can meet you for a drink.....

To be honest, I couldn't think of anything I'd rather do less but thank you for the invite. I know my temperamanet as well as my limits, and I have a feeling my patience would run out very quickly based on what I've been able to deduce about yourselves with my limited reading comprehension. Meeting you in person would probably only aggravate the strong dislike I already feel.

Anything more? We are civilized individuals and we all survived Rosens BBQ in the summer. You didn't show up to that one either. If you can't say it to mine or LD's face then don't say it online. See I can say things to your face or anyone elses without fear, I believe in speaking my mind whether you or anyone else agrees with it or not.

Actually I doubt you've learned anything about arguing online. But you do know how to come across as a complete ass online.

I don't think you know how to disagree with someone without making it personal.

In your rebuttals in this thread today you could have approached your concerns from a much less confrontational POV FIRST.

I say if you find this forums members so unlikeable feel free to find one that more suits your personality.

Grumpyrom;
I am more than willing to discuss this and many other topics face to face with you or any other person.
Playing the race card, IMHO, is one of the oldest tricks in the book, most will back down and will keep their opinions to themselves (even though it is the truth) for fear of being labled a racist. I dont care, I speak the truth and will not let anyone interfere with my "Constitutional Right to Free Speech".

I ask " are they broke yet ". That does not make me nor anyone a racist.
I go of on a tangent about rosen's white sofas, I mention vomit and piss stains and the fact that everytime the sofas get soiled the rich people juss toss them out on the front lawn and buy a new one. 50 million will buy a great many sofas. Does that make me a racist? NO
You and I have disagreed on many things, from welfare to unions, politically we are polar opposits.
I do not hide behind a monitor, I'll say to anyone's face what I say in these forums. I tell my MP and PM what I think, quite frequently and with out fear of repercussion. I make no appologies for what I feel is right and just.
So toss that Racist tag around all you want. You cant silence me.

Thank you, come again.
