...but this is the season of giving. This behavior is just one more way of redistributing wealth to the 99%. Those who have should be generous with those who have not. They should leave their homes open so that goods may flow freely to citizens who, otherwise, have no access to the benefits of our oligarchical society. Empty the homes of the crony capitalists (one way or another)! Cheers :)
