Not everyone catches the same breaks in life regardless of credentials.
Picking up and moving cross country on your own dime is not cheap.
It really is that easy ? If that were so everyone would be an Olympic Athlete, Surgeon, Astronaut etc.
joshuatrio saysEveryone has the same opportunity. Don't turn this into identity politics. Bullshit - I did not bring up politics you did.

What does driving a 10 year old car and having a wife who is thrifty have to do with being able to retire ?
I did not bring up anything political but someone did - wonder who ?
You can work your ass off all your life and one serious illness will undo all of that hard work.
Life is not fair
Hard work is not a guarantee of anything except sore muscles.
You have to know how to make the rules work for you and manipulate them accordingly.
Bullshit again - yes you have to work hard, no not everyone can do it - there are physical limitations and mental capacity to handle the university curriculum.
Whew.... I thought for a second Marcus was wearing off on you.. good thing.I just checked, mine's 842. The knuckleheads at the bank never leave me alone when I come in.
joshuatrio saysGone in a matter of days.So will your buddy's business when things get far enough along.
Gone in a matter of days.
My bank was starting to really bug me when I went in to cash a check or get cash. A soon as I swiped my ATM card for identity, and they saw my balances come up, their eyes would get real wide and they would immediately say "Would you like to talk to one of our investment bankers"?
That being said you have to accept the world is not fair, the rules are not fair and no one is looking out for you except yourself.
I am not your "bro" - thankfully - nor any type of relative which is even better
This is different than its "easy"
Not that is of any concern to you or the loud mouth from Jersey but my retirement is going just fine, just started year 10 and bailed at age 57 with no annuities as well.
Yes - that would be correct. I was "funned" out at 57 after 30 years with my last company, 10 with U.S. Steel before that. I made a career change in my late 20s and started working at age 14.
To be perfectly honest is was my ability to constantly manipulate the people and conditions I was presented with at any given point in time (guess that requires some effort but after awhile it can be done by rote) plus being ridiculously averse to spending on things that did not add value.
Per the I proved your point - no, I didn't. As noted above the statement was work hard.
Work [manipulating people] + living below means/saving [ridiculously averse to spending on things that did not add value.] = retirement.
Tenpoundbass saysIt's hard for one guy to kill 50 people. Especially in close range like that. While surgically avoiding hitting glass and the walls.Especially when you're using an AR-15. We have a number of gun owners here, how many of you would select an AR-15 as the best weapon to kill people in that building? It's a gun designed for medium to long range targets, not close combat. A handgun would be much more effective.

Frequently they squeeze people's necks and cause strokes from pressure on the carotid artery. People have died.
This is the correct answer. The key is finding a therapist that specializes in Medical Massage, not spa type massages. Many Chiros work together with these type of therapists.I've had back/neck issues for decades. I go to a therapist once a week to keep me moving. She does a combo treatment (kinda like physical therapy, chiro and massage) all together. It took her a while to figure out what was going on, but once she figured out all the trigger areas for pain, I get amazing results. I've been seeing her for over 9 years. I take no pain medication.
Did that include the cost of the X-ray?
I'll take an intact border, please.
After about a month here I've already decided I'm never going back. The one thing I didn't account for here is how much less stressful life is. When I go to the store, I don't have people constantly on top of me. There's more parking. The commute is at least five miles further than what I had in San Diego, but it takes me the same amount of time. My neighborhood is super quite, everyone is friendly, I have a yard, at least 500 more square feet, two car garage, and a pool for $300 less a month than what I paid for a 2/2 condo. And I can realistically buy a house here without going into debt for the rest of my life.
You seem to be describing a completely different site. The linked article is from acedemia, an authoritative group of highly distinguished publishing researchers
That characterization is disingenuous as hell for some publishers of academic research on a focused area of knowledge.
They are not going to go away either, not even if you fire-bomb them. They will continue to be a resource on the subject matter of the radical right wing and the violence associated.
Moving 2 thousand miles will cost you 10 to 20 thousand if you do it all yourself U-Haul and with some pick up laborers, but they will damage your shit too.
The author should start by self-publishing their's.
My tiny little consulting company (comprised of me, my wife, and 4 sub-contractors) got a new state contract with Washington state.
