The grand deception

June 5, 2013

People buy the Illinois Lottery tickets in hopes of getting rich! But it’s a grand deception (fake illusion). Because the odds of winning much are stacked against them.

And it’s a no-brainer that the ticket losses aren’t going toward the Illinois School House Fund because only 2 percent of it ever reaches its true destination! So, that’s why there are too many school closings, while our state governor (Pat Quinn) squanders the other 98 percent on not truthful misappropriations.

    unless the voting rules to elect an Illinois Govenor has changed recently, the Govenor cannot pass any law by himself. He signs the laws and the appropriations that the state legislature sends his way. THEY decide where our tax and lottery money goes. HE cannot spend one penny of that money HIMSELF. Want the money to go to the ‘right’ places? Elect better representitives!!!!
