Re: Obamacare Key to Retiring at 50

That's a pretty good definition of a Tea Party person. Don't you know this isn't a political board and stupid posts like yours (and mine) will just cause dissension? Not cool. Take it elsewhere.

Re: Obamacare Key to Retiring at 50

What's the point in voting -- even when the lesser-of-two-evils party is in control, they still do plenty of evil.

Re: I support reparations

It was a 16 minute long video. I watched it for about 3 minutes. That's all I could take. "That's enough of that" popped into my mind and then I clicked the "back" button.

Re: Free College

The price of college today makes working to pay for college much more difficult than when we went to college. I was curious and did a calculation a while back.

Re: Matthew's back.
