. Enjoy living in your fairy dreamland where everyone with good money management skills is guaranteed a golden retirement no matter how little money they make
Of course not, they also need skills. Which apparently you don't have.
For that matter, I also don't trust the voters.
I'll never be able to retire. Never made enough money, and never had enough, early enough for a useful 401k. Two bubbles bursting killed what little I was able to afford to put away. My parents technically didn't retire either,
Sounds like what really happened here is your parents had poor money management skills, and you learned from them. Sorry about that.
No one ever has enough money when they have poor money management skills, even if they make millions.
if you are a developer, devops kind of sucks.
That's not what I said. I am happy to do devops as long as it doesn't take more than like 40% of my time.
Another high quality newspaper is the Wall Street Journal. If you're looking for print, it can't be beat, for similar reasons. The main difference is the WSJ focuses more on economic issues, and the NYT focuses more on social issues.
The editorial staff of both newspapers is mediocre, but the quality of the guest editorials can't be beaten, in both papers. You have ex presidents, or the commanding officer of the armed forces of Lebanon. Maybe you don't agree with the guest editorials, but they are often worth reading, more than the average blogger.
