Eventually someone “will get lucky. As in real, real lucky.” That’s how one journalist described the current situation in the Mega Millions lottery. I would like to challenge that notion.
With the pot currently at $1.6 billion, if “someone” wins, they will have their entire life turned completely upside down, and much of it won’t necessarily be for the better.
How’s that, you might ask? I’ll give you two reasons…
Reason #1: The winner will think that their financial problems were solved. Nope. They simply exchanged one set of financial problems for another. Who do you trust to help you invest the money? How do you avoid being scammed by attorneys, investors, financial advisors? The more money you have, the money you have to worry about.
Along with the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh, there has been much conversation about one of the most controversial Supreme Court rulings in the past half century… Roe vs. Wade, which legalized abortion in the United States. Since then, millions have been needlessly killed in the name of “healthcare.”
Proponents of abortion argue that the pre-born baby is not a human being, but simply a “potential” human being. In their defense of Roe vs. Wade, they rarely mention the baby at all, usually completely ignoring the reality of another human life involved, instead focusing on terms and phrases like “a woman’s right over her own body” and “a woman’s right to choose” and “a woman’s right to healthcare.” In over 99% of the cases, abortion is not about a woman’s health… it’s about an unwanted baby.
