    "they" could mean any retiree.  I am sick and tired of the assumptions being made here.  There are many liberal/progressive people who are retired and we don't watch Fox news and we don't buy into this crap.  Do you really think all retirees are fucking stupid?

      as though it was written about you personally, I'm sorry you feel you have to do that

        I am simply tired of reading about "stupid old white people who vote republican," and how gullible and selfish and ridiculous and on, and on, and on.  You need to check all your comments to the diary and consider whether what it is you actually intended to convey, about yourself and about the topic of conversation.  Please to not feel sorry for me.  I am not taking it personally because I don't fit into whatever stereotype you are using.  But I definitely am reacting to the same old tired meme that I see being repeated in the diaries about SS.  If you don't like my response, then stop stereotyping!
