So far, I have only submitted to one store credit card, but paying it off is kind of annoying, so I rarely use it unless they're having a specific deal on the CC.

I actually don't disagree with the guy, but I think the point is that not everything has to benefit the government. Sometimes, things can benefit the people.

If you look at your donations as a percentage of wealth, Meg has been donating less than one percent of her total wealth each year. Your percentage is probably higher.
I remember reading on her blog that she goes on a lot of volunteering trips. Which is nice, but ultimately, that's more of a vacation than giving. There have been articles that say that the money spent on the flight there could be put to better use if it was just donated. And she attends a lot of charity fundraisers, I think. The money spent by the charty on the open bar and by the donors on a dress for the party could be better spent donated.
None of this is meant as judgment upon her. It's up to every individual to choose how they spend their money.

I'm not quite sure what to say, but I definitely don't want to leave this post un-commented on. I'm glad you were able to resolve things and that you're feeling better.

I'm actually excited to be older. We're probably going to be pretty traditional with having a baby and buying a house (although I don't want to be a SAHM!), so I'm hoping that will help me relate to other people... eventually.
