Russia in the EU [...] has never seriously been proposed.
Russia is too big in all of population, area and issues to become an EU member. Something Turkey-sized or Ukraine-sized is within the realm of possibility, Russia not. Association treaties might be possible, but not membership.
Playing the pedant poster, I implore you all to discuss Trump (or America) in another thread.
I will never understand why the state of MS routinely ignores demands for a state lottery.
lotteries are a tax on dumb poor people
We are going to get paid [for the border wall] one way or the other [...] I know there's $4 billion a year in excess payments, according to the Department of the Treasury's own inspector general several years ago, that are going to payments to people -- tax credits that they shouldn't get. Now, these are mostly Mexicans. And those kind of things add up...
Lotteries are voluntary, therefore not a tax. Cappice???
Yeah, these kind of things add up. Only in America.

Sure it is probably being sold as education funds, but you're one recession away from funds being reallocated. I was, and still am, against our State's lotto. Less than $0.50 paid for every $1 spent. With any real winnings being blown rather than used appropriately to pay debt, gain education or such. Handing someone with no experience or skill in dealing with money lots of it does not suddenly promote good habits.
The odds of someone filing for bankruptcy after winning $150k - $1M within the first 5 years are as high as 60%.
