Mominbox: we have many more kids this year than last year.

Spouseinbox: We have a larger supply of candy.

Me: That’s welfare.  The bigger the supply, the more that come to take it.


I was thinking of this as the perfect liberal holiday, however, there is a twist.  Consider that we the house owners/occupiers spend our money that we worked to earn to give something to someone who didn’t earn it and only showed up to receive it.  There is a big difference, though.  Many of the kids receiving said “Thank you.”  By placing the government between those supporting and those who receive, thanks is never given except to those who use their largess and power to purchase the votes.  Yes, I’m thinking ahead to tomorrow.
