    It is theft when you do not get anything in return. Maybe you need a picture:

    What hole would that be? The one that chris is in because he doesn't know what he's talking about? Or the one you're in because YOU don't know what you're talking about and can't refute anything I've said.

    Go look at post #20 and refute that.

    If I get something in return in exchange it is not theft.

    What about welfare? I give but get nothing in return. That's theft.
