    Unlikely. Back in the early 1970’s I left a box of candy by the front door with a sign saying “take one.” I had to go to the store for a half hour. When I got back the box and sign were gone and they broke the porch light. I never handed out anything for halloween again.

    Believe it or not, for some of then, too young to really comprehend what happened and why, YES, that could be EXACTLY what they need.
    A touch of normality and childhood in a VERY hard time.

    Stop screaming about socialism and start taking some responsibility for the society you live in. Government has a role in communities, it has a responsibility to it’s citizens in times of crisis. It is up to the people of this country to regulate what that role is. Unfortunately right-wingers like yourself don’t like it when government helps anybody but themselves. You would have us back to the days when people were forced to live in tenements, barely able to survive while a few extremely wealthy individual en rough-shod over everyone else. That is not progress. Look back to hsitory and why anti-trust laws were enacted.

    Based on my experience, here’s how it would work:

    Kids under the age of 3 wouldn’t understand the concept of giving, but could be cajoled into giving a piece of candy.

    Kids of roughly 4 to 10 (12?) would gladly give a piece or two and feel great. Some would even give their favorite candy, others the stuff they didn’t like.

    The some self-righteous fat guy will scream that by giving candy to the less fortunate you are depriving them of the opportunity to earn their own candy. He will then steal the pot and give the candy to other fat guys. and fire the parents who allow such foolishness.

    Or the current administration would take it all away bacuse they think it will make children obese and they nead to make sure things are being handled properly and held up to the health safety standards. We can’t have people do for others because it is the role of the government.

    I find it difficult to believe you get to know liberals. I find it more difficult to believe that you track their charity work.

    If you use Ansonia’s yardstick for what would be considered ‘Socialist’, then we could add most of Scandinavia, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand and probably quite a few more countries.

    It’s MItt’s house, and he plans to start up a candy store tomorrow, just obtaining his “stock” option.

    “And some liberal will cry his kid is not getting hisher fair share and grab someone’s who has more.”
    Some might, but most would not.

    “Studies show that Republicans give more to charity than Liberals.”
    Have you ever checked what the charities were and how many Republicans used it as a tax deduction.

    Let me get this story straight: You did something stupid. Then some unknown happened wherein the result was that you ran out of candy before you got back 9perhaps it was the first kid, perhaps if was the 50th kid, you don’t know.
    .
    So the end result is you don’t give out any candy to any child regardless of whether they abided by your rule or not.
    .
    That’s cold and stupid and self serving! Kind of exactly like the kid that took all the candy (assuming it was the first kid!)
    .
    That’s one of those stories you should never tell people! Make up some other story to explain why you’re too self centered to help carry on a tradititon that you enjoyed when you were young!

    Methinks Clark needs to see a therapist to get over his trauma because of what happened.
    .
    I may be a bit paranoid, but I’d give out candy on Halloween until I ran out, then turn off the light. Even kids know that if the outside light is out on Halloween, there’s no candy at that house.

    @moderateisntleft

    The problem is, somehow the right wingers seem to think that they are not part of the serfdom. Then again the left wingers think everyone’s a victim and shouldn’t have to be offended by even imagined insults. Being a moderate just gives you a headache because you’re called both a right wing & left wing puppet on a regular basis. Sometimes for the same comment.
