Save the stamp. That letter holds as much weight as our posts here. Nobody gives a sh!t. In answer to your sarcastic question, we would not opt out after the kids graduated from school. Again, personal property taxes have nothing to do with the Government takeover of our Health Insurance choices. You keep flinging it against the wall though if it makes you feel good. As for your "maternity" remark attributed to Chef, maternity has always been part of the coverage. There's other things less likely to be chosen if it were OUR choice. Read the ten commandments of the Obama Care Package and tell me why I would want all ten. Doofus.
I couldn't for the life of me decide why you wouldn't.

Didn't you mean to say you "could not" opt out (because you can't)? And didn't you mean to say you gave up control over your healthcare choices when you accepted Medicare? And doesn't Medicare A offer maternity coverage because even though the vast majority of recipients are over 65, there are some younger people who are on the program?

So many questions...

Yes. Many silly ones. You asked the "opt" out question. I merely stated that I wouldn't. That means that given that some old folks paid for my kids education I have to pay it forward. And no, I didn't give up control of my choices of healthcare because there are many plans and options out their to choose from. Well I mean there WERE. And, really who gives fcuk about maternity care at this stage of the game? Any plan I ever owned had maternity care. Yes, so many silly questions from somebody who already knows the real answers.

But it's not that you wouldn't, it's that you can't...nobody can. Our kids graduating high school does not annul our citizenship. We're still responsible for our share of the bill for municipal services.

Remember the Social Security lock-box? It never happened. If we don't drastically alter the face of health care in this country, Social Security will go bankrupt and then you'll be crying about how the gummint gave it to you and then took it away. How you worked for it all your life and then Obama comes along and steals it. How close do we need to come to that disaster before people do something about it?

Not in my lifetime, nor yours. I been listening to those dire predictions since I had a memory. Took a few decades off for being high, but nothing changed. The gummint taking it away SS is as probable as YesShitCan's prediction of those Russian Missiles. He's a loon from the loony state. 8>)

Like I said. Not in my lifetime or yours. And, who gives a sh!t about the "alarming" rate of disappearing glaciers? Does that affect the cost rhubarb? Worry about things you can do something about. Like, get get rid of this Sambobama Cork Soaker and his whole entourage as soon as possible and attempt to undo whatever damage he has done. It's not too late. Is it? Demographics too overwhelming? Too many takers? I can dream.

Have you shopped rhubarb lately?

You may be older than me but I bet you can make it to 2007 (when the Medicare deficit began). I have decided to start exercising and watching my diet so I can soak up all three years of my entitlement before SS goes belly up in '17.

OK. Having looked at the map and those two cryptic lines, before and after the link, I still don't get it. Does that make me stupid? Like, that's one of those things you have to have been there to understand? Huh? Wow!

Still not convinced??? Lets see the partial list. Stalin, Hitler, Erdogen, Iran, Syria, Egypt and so on. Now add Mr. Fake #1 the dictator of the USA to the list of:

1. Obama Accused of Military 'Purge'

The United States military is being "purged" of officers suspected of disloyalty to or disagreement with the Obama administration, several sources charge.

"We recognize President Obama is the commander-in-chief and that throughout history presidents from Lincoln to Truman have seen fit to remove military commanders they view as inadequate or insubordinate," Investor's Business Daily (IBD) observed.

"Yet what has happened to our officer corps since President Obama took office is viewed in many quarters as unprecedented, baffling, and even harmful to our national security posture."

Retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely believes Obama is "intentionally weakening and gutting our military and reducing us as a superpower, and anyone in the ranks who disagrees or speaks out is being purged."

According to Breitbart.com , at least 197 officers, mostly at the rank of colonel or above, have been relieved of duty for a variety of reasons, or for no stated reason at all.

Nine senior commanding generals have been fired by the administration this year, "leading to speculation by active and retired members of the military that a purge of its commanders is underway," IBD reported.

Among those officers:

Gen. Carter Ham was relieved as head of U.S. Africa Command because he disagreed with orders not to mount a rescue effort in response to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on U.S. diplomatic personnel in Benghazi, Libya.
Rear Adm. Charles Gaouette, commander of Carrier Strike Group Three, was relieved of duty in October 2012 for disobeying orders when he sent his group to assist and provide intelligence for forces ordered into action by Gen. Ham, according to IBD.
Two nuclear commanders were fired in a single week — Maj. Gen. Michael Carey, head of the Air Force unit that maintains control of 450 intercontinental missiles, and Vice Adm. Tim Giardina, the No. 2 officer at U.S. Strategic Command. Carey was sacked "due to a loss of trust and confidence in his leadership and judgment," while Giardina lost his post for allegedly using counterfeit gambling chips at a casino.
Maj. Gen. Ralph Baker, commander of the Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa, was fired for alcohol use and sexual misconduct charges. Defense officials told CNN the reason was “loss of confidence.”
Marine Corps Maj. Gen. Charles Gurganus was terminated for questioning the "winning hearts and minds" policies that led to the murders of U.S. officers by Afghan recruits, according to FrontPage magazine.
Maj. Gen. Peter Fuller was relieved of his command in Afghanistan after he told a media source that Afghan President Hamid Karzai and other government officials were "isolated from reality."
On the last day of November 2011, the administration terminated 157 Air Force majors, citing budget shortfalls as the primary reason — a move that some legal experts said was illegal.
According to IBD, a senior retired general said on the condition of anonymity that "they're using the opportunity of the shrinkage of the military to get rid of people that don't agree with them or do not toe the party line."

FrontPage concluded: "Obama has made clear that he will aggressively pursue anyone who defies his agenda. Now it seems that chilling message has been sent to the military as well."
