When someone tells me that they want to "opt out" of Social Security, I tell them that there is only one fair and reasonable way to do that. The minute they opt out, every member of their extended family--by birth and by marriage--who is currently collecting Social Security would be dropped and would immediately look to them for their monthly support checks. If the opt-outer refused to support his family members, they could sue him and garnish wages and assets. No other members of his extended family would qualify for Social Security, now or in the future.

I am a skeptic and as with most things such as global climate change and religion, I say show me the evidence. There is much evidence that climate change is real and man made and absolutely no evidence there is an alpha male in the sky that controls every thing. So, with GMOs I have been skeptical as well, especially with much of the dialog being fear driven.

JP Morgan facing $13 b fine after countless months of participating in $80 b/mo QE bailout, as well as a $16 Trillion dollar bailout!?!
Obama is officially a BANKSTER!
We aren’t even being told what price the fed is “paying” for the crap MBS and other instruments it is getting in return for QE money,…or for that matter if they are getting anything of value at all for the QE monies!
Including and especially the act of privatizing the wealth of the People represented by their Commons into the hands of the 1%.
And the Environment continues to suffer so much so that it is now at the point of abject failure.
