All I can think of is that there is a single mother of four on public support putting money into a slot machine. I hope President Trump outlaws this!




The penultimate example of wishful thinking. SOOPOO knows this will NEVER happen.

Under what legal theory?

Clearly there is no contractual breach: the machine clearly stated that a malfunction voids all pays, and the stated pay table shows the highest possible payout: 6500.

Nor is there a tort claim; inter alia I see no damages to her caused by the malfunction.



You clearly know the law better than I. My point is that it won't matter what the law says if she can get in front of the right jury.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Yes, iIt would be great if Trump did outlaw single mothers: there's millions of guys who would be grateful for not having to pay child support.

That is messed up that she was gambling on public money that was meant to feed five mouths, not go into a slot machine. What a shameless POS. She's almost as bad as the lottery winner who still collected and used welfare food stamps while they lived the good life with their millions! If you are now a multimillionaire, why the hell are you still collecting and using welfare food stamps?
Guy "won" less than his bet and the slot machine had the audacity to tell him he got a big win! SMH! Also, the Nintendo cartridge is so much more important than the Nintendo console. Without the cartridge, the Nintendo console is just a useless box.

Id hardly call a woman dreaming of a better life than poverty the same as one who collected welfare after winning millions

I understand what people believe welfare recipients should b entitled to do but welfare money is budgeted and once she has any left over the rest is discretionary. She is free to buy lunch or lottery tickets. Her choice. There are no welfare police in the strictest sense.

Had she actually won a life changing amount would u still b upset it was off welfare money

Finally the article says she is unemployed. She could hav just lost her job and b on unemployment but of course everyone assumes a black unemployed mother must b collecting welfare

How do you know she's on welfare?

Maybe the government should just control every aspect of our lives.
I heart Crystal Math.

Ironic seeing how the candidate you supported not only doesn't pay taxes, but last year took a NY State STAR exemption on his property taxes that is designed to help middle class people. Why is a supposed billionaire taking exemptions meant for the middle class?
It's what you do and not what you say If you're not part of the future then get out of the way

If you can legally take the deduction/exemption, why not?

Who said he doesn't pay taxes?

Trump said it himself or did you miss that one? You can find it on youtube. He said it makes him smart.

Personally I don't see why anyone would believe that someone who claims to know all the legal loopholes for avoiding taxes would be the one to fix them. Usually, when someone takes advantage of a system, you don't put them in charge of it.

If you know someone can overcome the security in a bank and has robbed them in the past, putting them in charge of your security system doesn't make you safer, it usually means you will have an empty vault sooner or later.
