    It's real!! I saw the van with the name of Publishers Clearing House pulled up into someone's driveway with balloons and a big card in Bedford, Ohio. Honestly! Someone won something. I saw it with my own eyes so I believe it is true. I guess not everyone will win, It depends on the drawing I guess. I don't know how it works for them.

    Yeah it is fake.
    If you want to play something for real...

    Get a lottery ticket or go to Casino.

    I won $150 at the Casino, after
    spent $40 in the slot machine. :P

    Taxes

    Yup, there is 50% federal taxes on any winning moola!, then there is state, if your state has tax on winning moola then you have to pay, leaving you small amount of winning moola. Tell ya this, most of the lottery winner went broke within 6 months! Money make you happy? Im laughing at your poor soul! Sure I could feel sorry for the suckers but... WTF? I'd rather win my own son than win these green papers with portraits of dead USA presidents on them!

    Some people brought lottery tickets for years and have not once won anything or some people put coins in slots and still don't win anything. I have only won once at the casino, I only played it 3 times in my lifetime. So really, not everyone will win all the time it depends sometimes never. Those of you who think Publishers Clearing House are fake because you never won nor you never saw the van pulling up someone's driveway near your hometown. :thumb: So, really you cannot say it is fake when you have no proof.

    After winning the lottery,
    will they give me the whole million dollar cash and then I can flee to Mexico,
    so that they won't tax me? :naughty:

    hahahaha! You don't know this do you? You don't get the whole million dollars at once, did you know that they spilt up payments and you get payments every year so really they collect the taxes before you get your payment. Sorry hon.

    Question

    Ask yourself... where are these lottery winner goes? They seems to disappear, rather than become one of celebrity. go figure!

    50% taxes, they don't tell you UNTIl they give you check with HUGE smile from uncle sam! Winning income is most taxed of all, more than capital gain taxes. That is why I wasn't excited about winning anything. I'd rather win my own kids!

    IRS has nothing to do with being Republicans or Democrats. :crazy: You pay taxes on everything that part of life so deal with it, nothing you can do to change it not even being a republican. :bye:

    Then how come back in the 1950s we didnt have all kinds of taxes? Back in the 1950s you would go down to a 7-11 store and buy a small bag of potato chips for 25 cents AND NOT ONE PENNY MORE!! Plus we didnt have taxes on telephone bills,Water Bils,Electric bills or even a repair bill on your car. The only taxes people pay back in the 1950s was INCOME, FICA AND ON PROPERTY
    If yall would subscribe to the limbaugh letter you would know what kind of mess
    the democrats are doing with your tax dollar
