What’s the most powerful political lobby in Washington, DC besides the NRA, AMA, and AIPAC? If you guessed the AARP, you’re right. There’s a reason it is so strong – retirees are involved in politics, and you should be, too! Oy – what else are we gonna do with all of our free time? Now your beloved Yenta is not suggesting you pack your bags for a march on Washington. She’s merely suggesting that you acquaint yourself with local politics, and maybe even volunteer at a voting station on an election day. If nothing else, you’ll have something to tawk about while sitting at the counter of your favorite diner (see Tip #90).
