24. The stupid piece couldn't even substantiate that claim.

 

They did claim that the growth could not be accounted for by boomers alone, but they did not get around to actually accounting for it, other than of course the innuendo that it was a bunch of shirkers taking advantage of hard workin murkins.

They did manage to observe that quite a few 50+ people in de-industrialized non-urban america were in fact unable to physically work in the service jobs that remain (e.g. retail, health care, truck driver). But could not quite grasp the obvious conclusion: that means they are disabled.
