..... though that does ,some days, mean ignoring the whole board "


given the board name, I figure you've got a choice as far as lurking,
posting, responding, and otherwise as far as making a general
nuisance or "horses rear-end" of yourself - you can focus on the
"Retire" part, the "Retire Early" part, or the "Liberal" part, or
the whole gamut (do you spell gamut with an "e" or a "u"?). Retirement
ideas don't tend to be liberal or not liberal.

Anyway, I figure there are good "retire" issue posts on all the
boards that have "retire" or some variation of the word in the
board name - so I keep them all on my favorites list.
Then, I seem to just be the type of person who every so often
just can't keep from putting in a comment here --- or there.

Sometimes I also get caught up in the political rankling that goes
on on most boards at one time or another - but try to avoid
such things except where there might bea little humour to add
or extract - or when I suspect folks are loosing sight of history
or are forgetting something - not too frequently as most of what
passes for political discourse is plain name-calling with little
information of value and few perspectives which could be changed
even if information was provided.

Anyway, some things are best ignored.

And this post may well be one of them.

Thought to be either thick-skinned or dense - depending on one's
own perspective.
