    Default Social Theft

    Michael, Archie, neighbor Irene, and Edith, discussing social theft, All in the Family, 1975 February 8
    "The Stivics show Archie the error of his ways after he "borrows" nails and an electric drill from work."

    Michael: I guess I'm a victim of the system, too.
    Archie: Oh, oh-oh, listen to this guy. When he takes something, he's a poor victim. And when I take something, I'm a crook. . . . Let me remind you of something there, Meathead. Like the Good Book says, "Let him who is without sin be the rollin' stone." . . .
    Michael: Hey, at least I admitted I was wrong. That's more than I can say for you! That's the problem with the world. Nobody even knows when they've done the wrong thing.
    Archie: Well, maybe what the world needs is a whole new set of commandments. Why don't you climb a mountain and write some? . . . .
    Archie: Let's have an end to this whole thing now. I say case closed.
    Michael: But Arch, you don't understand what we're trying to talk about.
    Archie: Will you shush up? . . . . Wait a minute there, Irene. There's something there I don't understand.
    Irene: What don't you understand?
    Archie: I don't understand what you are doing with a company pen!
    Irene: What?
    Archie: Here, here! (Taking the pen) It says there, "Pendergast Tool and Dye Company"! How long have you been stealing pens, Irene?
    Irene (grabbing the pen from Archie): I didn't steal that!
    Archie: Woah-woah-woah! Then how come you got that?
    Edith: I gave it to her! You've got a whole drawer full of them!
    Michael: Ma, when Archie goes into all that double-talk, do you ever buy that?
    Edith: I don't have to buy it -- it's free.
    He is found by those who do not seek Him. He says, "Here I Am! Here I Am!" to those who never called His Name.
    Worthy are You, O L-rd our G-d, to receive glory, honor, and power; for You
    created all things. Because of You, they are and were created.

    Blue ladybug, fearless leader of the orange kitty battalion! She loves orange tabbies and is innocent as decreed by Pottersclay who states that Scripture says that all people who love orange tabbies are innocent. Truthtalk says that God created the world, and then He created wonderful orange tabbies. Joefizz has elected blue ladybug as captain of the brave orange kitty ​army!

    I once heard that Carroll O'Connor was a very kind and humble person in real life.... the opposite of his character as Archie.

    Sometimes, my husband and I disagree about giving:
    He believes we should give freely to all persons who ask when we can safely stop and give;
    I believe that we should not give unless we are somewhat sure that the person is honest about their need.

    He gives candy bars.
    I give a little meal.

    He occasionally gives money.
    I refuse to give money.

    It is sometimes hard to know what the right responses should be.
    Although I think about the things in this post, he and I don't talk about them often: I am just glad we can give.
