    Social Security is doomed, what are you doing to prepare?
    Scaremongering to increase readership of your diary is irresponsible and contemptuous.  Yes, I've read all the comments and see that you're trying to make excuses for it but there is no acceptable excuse.  If you wanted to use the words of the person you were supposedly talking to about this, you could have simply put those words in the body of the diary.

    Instead, you use a title that reeks of hysteria, a title that will affect everyone who sees it in the list of recent diaries (this diary definitely won't make the rec list).  

    In view of the "Social Security is Doomed title," your suggestions, which could have been benign and even helpful in a different diary, take on the air of a pseudo-survivalist manual.  I read enough of those in my younger years to not recognize the 'same old same old' even when I'm reading it on a liberal site.

    What a shame.  You could have done some good with this diary if it had been written from a different perspective, perhaps that of a seasoned citizen who sees how small changes, started when young, would have been relatively painfree and helped make senior years less stressful, etc., etc.

    They don't win until we quit fighting!
