So this story in Wired says that some state and county government employees are able to, and have, opted out of the Social Security scam. They're running their own scams, of course, but what about the SSA's "intergenerational contract" bullshit, if local governments can simply refuse to participate? All the more reason that I should get my money (via a disability claim) and run. They already provide loopholes for freedom-loving people to step through, so I will take any that are open to me.

My server in Rosarito may or may not survive a reboot, but it looks like I'm going to boogie on out anyway. Back to L.A., and maybe Deming by tomorrow night. I'll be down to my last $20, but hopefully will have this MIDP app working in a few days, at least well enough to get paid.
