Is Lottery a positive or negative?

What do you think about Lottery? Does it benefit the society because some of the funds goto Public education or does it harm the society since it wastes the Money of 99.9999% of the People based on a false hope? Keeping in mind as well noted in attached Video, most sales with Lottery have actually seen a reduction in Money going to Public Education!
Simply put: what would Jesus say and do about Lottery?

In my personal opinion there is no good or bad. Gambling actual gives people hope and try their luck of getting fast money.Some make it but most of the people do not make it the probability is very low to win in gambling. Occasions gambling in buying a sweep ticket will cause no harm

Anything that encourages getting something for nothing is harmful.

That is obvious. The deeper question that OP is asking, is whether it is appropo to argue for Lottery as the basis for funding Public education which has been its key argument and selling point in US. Or whether we should fund Colleges via general Taxation and make them free for Taxes people pay, as they do in most of European countries?

The lottery is a waste of time and money. You have a better chance with investing your money in stocks.

Anoox does not "ban you from giving you a thumbs up". You can be banned by too many other members reporting you as have done something bad such as having posted non-sense, fake, etc..

Jessy, if Anoox does not ban people from giving a thumbs up, then WHY can't I give Alexis a thumbs up?

As I said if too many members here dis-like you for having said Rubbish, non-sense etc. as a Republican lunatic which you have proven yourself to be on case after case, then if too many people Vote you down this way, then I think your rights here are restricted compared to the Good people who deal with facts.

To pjiyan from Turkey, this is an English based Question, so you need to post answers in English. If you want to have a discussion in Turkish, go ahead start one. Thanks to Anoox you can do to so easily in many diff languages. So dont SPAM us with Turkish in an English based conversation.

Deporter & Silly Sally, just because you don't know how to click does not mean I don't know how. If you would wake up you MIGHT notice that I have many times reported posts for various reasons. For some reason Anoox has banned me from reporting nonsense as above.

It is positive if you use it wisely or if it's in the correct hand

Yes, that is True. It is an Oxymoron to say that you can play the Lottery wisely.
