In this quote, Jarod Kintz is once again drawing a humorous analogy, this time between pockets of wealth and politicians. When he says there are “pockets of wealth in this country,” he’s referring to concentrations of money and resources.

But then he jokes that most of these “pockets” are literally located “in the politicians’ pants.”

So Kintz is wryly suggesting that while certain areas or groups may be wealthier than others economically, the political class itself is where the true “pockets” or stores of wealth accumulate through their influence and connections.

Overall, this quote aims to lightly poke fun at how politicians often seem to personally benefit financially from their time in office through a variety of legal and sometimes questionable means.

Aristotle seems to be making the point that children, thieves, and politicians are similar in that they all tend to spend funds that do not actually belong to them. For children, he may mean they spend parents’ money without fully understanding financial responsibilities.

For thieves, of course, they illegally take what is not theirs. And for politicians, Aristotle could be arguing they have a tendency to overspend public funds or tax dollars without sufficient oversight.

His overall message appears to be that when people make use of other people’s resources, whether rightfully or not, supervision is important to prevent waste or abuse. Reasonable people may disagree on how closely different groups require monitoring according to their circumstances.
