  •  As descendents of married cousins (2+ / 0-)

    (seriously) I guess I have to comment here also. My great grandparents on my father's side were first cousins and there were two Rhodes scholarship candidates in that batch.

    Stop stereotyping. We're all descended from relatives somewhere along that tree.

    I can do everything but earn a living.

      my great grandparents were first cousins.  While we have no Rhodes scholars we have an incredible no. of academic achievements.  We also have no congenital anomalies. The problem with cousin marriages is more likely when there is a history generations back of co-sanguinous marriages or when there are known problems.  

      My social security, medicare and military retirement are EARNED benefits. The checks Paris Hilton and the Waltons receive while sitting around the pool are entitlements. Don't let the Republicans confuse you.
