17. I find this alliance interesting

First, the 10 million means nothing to him. I read a comparsion that stated that 10 million for him is the same as someone who earned $50,000 a year giving aways $45. So, big picture, he gave Newty 20-25 million dollars but to him it was no more out-of-pocket than a average night on the town for a normal person (80-90 dollars-family of 3 or 4). Its hard to grasp that perspective when the income gap is that large but it doesn't change the fact that his gift was rather insignificant to him.
My second point is this: with all this holier-than-thou attitude and high moral ground they like to take, how is it they give a pass to taking money from a guy that made his billions through gambiling and alcohol sales? He makes his wealth on some of the very things that contribute to the moral and ethical collapse of our society. I guess its ok if you a rethug.
