Open Thread

After seeing Michael Moore's Capitalism, I wondered if my company participated in the lovely practice of using Dead Peasants Insurance. I was happy to see that most likely they do not, but what about your company? You can check the list out here.

Dead Peasant Insurance: companies betting on your death. So how did it come about? Because in the 1980s, a tax break was created to cover a few essential employees but now has become another way for companies to make money on you.
