if they want 20,000 they need to either let in 200 or charge 200, their math doesnt work...

"can you write this off in your taxes?"

Hells no! Would you want people who donate to the GOP to write off their donations?

@Anon 9:39 Since you are feeling so generous... Would you care to donate towards my next month's rent?

your next months rent doesn't do anything good for anyone but you.
