You people don't know what you're talking about. have you ever been to The Villages? Why not look at George Soros or the many Hollywood "Elites" that contribute millions of dollars to a President who leads from behind and thinks he's the "Ruler" of the country. THese stupid comments about the seniors here just reinforce the facts about how you sheep following idiots love your entitlements. Why don't you all get a life and get your head out of the sand. People here in The Villages range from Military Generals, CEO's Professors, to construction workers - all of who enjoy the lifestyle created by the Morse family.

Ah, just what I have come to expect from the media: a liberal douche bashing something he's never seen just because the word Republican was involved. And BTW, I don't know of a great many retirement villages that are chock full of liberals. I know of a great many that are peopled mostly with conservatives but not so much with the liberals. I wonder if it's because they're older people who've grown out of the childish liberal-disease?
