  •  here's a fat load of horseshit. (0+ / 0-)

    the notion that 2/3 of dividends go to charity is totally fucking stupid.  its laughable.  and if.you follow their links, it goes to a CTJ "study" where they crunch their own numbers in dubious fashion.  they completely ignore that most stock is owned by ETFs and mutual funds, which pass through their dividends to shareholders. (which explains their bizarre non sequitur about s-corps.  they probably saw "pass through" and were too dumb to understand that it meant RICs)

    I have no qualms with the gist of what you write, just wanted to note that when Public Citizen is right its usually an accident.
