Homo Sapiens would steal the smell off stink and sell it back to you as perfume. Sapiens would steal a wheelchair from a cripple and sell the wheels back to him one at a time as replacement parts. In baseball if you're caught stealing you're out. If Sapiens is caught stealing he gets a promotion and a raise. What do you call two Homo Sapiens and a plasma television on a loading dock? Robbery in progress. What can you leave around Homo Sapiens that won't get stolen? The employment section of the newspaper.
Rich, poor, middle-class, left, right, the universal constant that describes Homo Sapiens is that these creatures steal sh*t whenever they think they can get away with it. They steal from babies, they steal from the elderly, they steal from the government, the government steals from them, they steal and steal and steal some more. They got thief in their blood, they'll steal anything that is not tied down. The more there are of them, the more likely they are just to start taking stuff from other groups of men by force and calling it even.
Steal $20, go to jail. Steal 16 Trillion, get called a "free market success story."
