Nearing the end of our Halloween frolic through the neighborhood, one my children asked me about where he was going to store his candy at home. “Well”, I told him, “we’re going to take all your candies, put them into a bowl with your brother’s and sister’s candies, then give you what we feel you need. Then, we’re going to pass out the candy to other people that we feel are more deserving.”
Upon hearing that, he was sorely disappointed. However, I assured him that this was exactly was President Obama was doing, and he should be happy with the situation.
I guess what better way to teach my children about theft and redistribution than tonight.
