America Has its First Billion Dollar Lottery Winner, Here’s Where the Ticket was Sold

That’s an obscene amount of money.

Somewhere in the state of South Carolina is one of the most sought after individuals in the country, and no, they aren’t an actor, a politician — who wants those guys and gals? — nor anyone else of some sort of cultural significance.

It’s a regular person. A regular person who just so happens to be the first American billion dollar lottery winner.

So, if you want to be a billionaire, all you need to do is live in South Carolina and be in the possession of the winning Mega Millions ticket.

Only one ticket in the record-breaking $1.6 billion Mega Millions jackpot hit all the numbers in Tuesday’s drawing. The winner — still unknown and because of state law, can remain anonymous — took the largest single lottery prize in history anywhere in the world.

The U.S. lottery has topped $1 billion before. In 2016, the Powerball jackpot hit $1.5 billion, but three winners split the prize.

The winner can opt for a lump cash payment of $904 million or receive the $1.6 billion prize over 29 years. Assuming the winner takes the lump sum, he or she could owe more than $330 million in 2018 to the federal government, plus 7% to the state of South Carolina.

With the longer payout, the winner will have to make do with $53 million a year.

It seems to me that, in reality, the lottery is nothing more than a sneaky way to tax the snot out of someone at an unfathomably high rate. Perhaps that’s why a lot of fiscally conservative and responsible folk don’t actually play the lottery that often.

We already give enough dough to Uncle Sam. He’s getting a little fat around the waistline and really doesn’t need to be eating any more biscuits if you catch my drift.

Regardless, congratulations to the winner, whoever you are!

Report: New Evidence Suggests Over 40,000 People Have Died In Wuhan From COVID-19

WHOA!

Unless you voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016 and plan to vote for Joe Biden in November, there’s a decent chance you’re aware that China is most likely lying about its death totals when it comes to coronavirus. On Friday, a left-leaning outlet reported the communist regime might already have over 40,000 deaths – just in Wuhan alone. From Washington Post via Daily Wire: The coronavirus pandemic ravaging the globe officially claimed 2,563 lives in Wuhan, where it began in a market that sold exotic animals for consumption. But evidence emerging from the city as it stirs from its two-month hibernation suggests the real death toll is exponentially higher. … Using photos posted online, social media sleuths have estimated that Wuhan funeral homes had returned 3,500 urns a day since March 23. That would imply a death toll in Wuhan of about 42,000 — or 16 times the official number. Another widely shared calculation, based on Wuhan’s 84 furnaces running nonstop and each cremation taking an hour, put the death toll at 46,800.

Ilhan Omar: ‘Hundreds of Thousands’ of Americans Might Die Because of President Trump

A little hyperbolical…

Imagine having nothing better to do with your life than slamming the duly-elected leader of the free world, non-stop. People like Ilhan Omar (MN) honestly believe that President Trump is doing a bad job handling the coronavirus. He’s not. He has actually taken tremendous steps to slow the spread. But libs are gonna lib, no matter the situation. From Fox News: Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., argued that President Trump could cost “hundreds of thousands of lives” through his administration’s “completely failed” response to the COVID-19 pandemic. “I think with each day that goes by, it becomes clearer and clearer how badly this administration has completely failed the American people,” Omar told Sirius XM host Dean Obeidallah during the Thursday edition of his radio show. Omar said, “When you have the richest country in the world and we have all kinds of advantages, yet thousands, yet hundreds of thousands of people could die because of his mismanagement and his inability to really be quite upfront with people is quite devastating. As you just pointed out, for weeks, this president downplayed this crisis.” Here’s more COVID-19 randomness, via Twitter… https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1246240007523885056 https://twitter.com/TheCoronaMemes/status/1246253612323364865 https://twitter.com/barstoolsports/status/1246244846731493379 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1246248396593250306 https://twitter.com/billboard/status/1246258404726837248 https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1246262480353005568 https://twitter.com/barstoolsports/status/1246247960314331138 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1246241158902226945 https://twitter.com/barstoolsports/status/1246257429903544322 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1246256241648848899 https://twitter.com/rnz_news/status/1246264313616019457 https://twitter.com/BarstoolNewsN/status/1246248030992584707
