They either need to outlaw the lottery or legalize gambling.
@art same with stock market, lottery, traditional gambling and stock market are basically all the same thing just different target demographic
Lottery and gambling is just statistical hack with no real value other than entertainment and parting fools of their money which I guess has some sort societal value.

You think this is a good thing
@Wraptile Nope, if you're not clear it's your fault. But good to know that exploitation is a societal value for you.
@hypolite @art This would be great, if it didn't impact the poor disproportionately. The people who should be paying more in taxes don't play the lotto, and people who shouldn't be paying extra taxes are throwing their money away on it.
Back When I worked in a factory, I saw people who had trouble making ends meet dropping fifty dollars a paycheck on lotto, praying it would get them out of financial trouble. Saw one of them win $65k. He was worse off after all the bad decisions that followed.
