The fact that RJ (and others) are basically thieves is an interesting negative aspect of the strip. It’s always bugged me. But I rationalize that they’re animals and disadvantaged against their human overlords. It’s a Robin Hood thing. Rob from the fat and give to the slightly less fat. It’s not their fault they’ve been disenfranchised by suburban sprawl and have been forced to evolve a taste for frozen pizza and maraschino cherries.
They can’t be blamed.
It’s all Obama’s fault.
