    IT is a hard job.  It is an even harder career.

    After 20 years in the business I had to learn a couple of times that if you get comfortable you are falling behind.  If you don't re-learn everything every 5 years you will find yourself unemployable quickly.

    Fortunately I have been able to spend the last 6 months with a new employer learning the latest in internet development technologies, but I don't know if I can retrain again for the 5th time in a few more years.  Knowing this I am socking away as much as possible so I can get out on my own terms.

    I suggest everyone in IT do the same.

    Republican tax policies have led to financial conditions which have caused Republicans to demand cuts to programs they have always opposed.
