Giving to charity was never really about the whole, you know "charity" of it. it has always been about the tax deductions.

I would guess that Ari didn't just become a dickhead--he's always been one, so this is nothing new.

And, I'm guessing that most of his "charities" are right-wing political non-profits. Let's put it this way--he's not giving anything to Planned Parenthood.

Good reason to tweak Social Security contributions upwards then.

Oh, but he did! Just ask Susan G. Koman's Nancy Brinker!

If it wasn't for Ari recommending Karen Handel to Brinker - I would not have increase my donation to Planned Parenthood! And I'm not the only one to have done that.

Also, too, isn't the charitable deduction one of "loopholes" that Ryan, Romney, Boehner, McConnell et al want to close instead of increasing top marginal rates?

From a man who probably will make more in a few years than I will in a lifetime.
