Anytime I talk about a rich person or corporation that really sucks, I get a bunch of negative feedback. I am usually reminded how said corporation or rich dude “does a lot” for the community and gives “tons” to charity. That’s when I point out that drug dealers “do a lot” and give to charity too (a point I will repeat as often as needed). As the Florida Republican primaries kicked into full gear and I try really hard to give a damn, a whole set of conversations are popping off about how Mitt Romney pays a lower tax rate than much of the country. Predictably, those conversations are promptly followed by some reminder of how much Mitt gives to charity.
