In a sense, I feel honored.

Why would we have such a large influx of people who apparently call themselves "conservatives", who have a compelling need to to immediately flood the board with a barrage of stereotypes about what "liberals" really believe, bragging about how they should be listened to because they are the experts, taunting people, rarely discussing the specific topic of retiring early?

What fuels their overarching need for our attention?

Deep seated feelings of inferiority?

There was a time when I would have tried to figure it out. Now I would rather have interesting conversations with interesting people, not reward screaming brats with more attention.

Do we have the maturity to do that? I'd give us a C- at this point.
