Letter: Socialist Security?

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Dick Fitzgerald’s “Stupid is as stupid does” letter in the July 5 Post Independent.

He begins by insinuating that those who elected President Obama are stupid. He then bemoans what he sees as the president’s socialist leanings, writing that that “is not what our country is supposed to be.”

Mr. Fitzgerald tops off this intellectual masterpiece by complaining, without a hint of irony, mind you, that his Social Security payments went down. You just couldn’t make this stuff up. Stupid is as stupid does, eh, Dick?
