When a child says "No I don't want to share and you can't make me!", they are a spoiled brat.

When an adult says "No I don't want to share and you can't make me!", they are a Republican.
Space to let for non-antagonistic signature.

Posted on the old board, but it just seemed appropriate:

> She replied, "I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people."
