I wonder how higher tax rates on the most productive will affect charitable donations?

Another unintended negative consequence of inaptly-named progressivism.

The idea is to give, not receive a tax deduction.

It's not so much about the deduction. It's about having the money to give in the first place, which is undermined by higher tax rates.

Deductions encourage and reward the giving. Recipients don't care what our motivations are. They want food, clothing, and shelter.

Concern yourself less with motivations, intentions, and how you feel about yourself, and more about results. This is the essence of the conservative-"progressive " divide.

If you spend $25 at Stater Bros you can get a Butterball Turkey for under $8 and all these poor people are receiving food stamps - charity already. I also, know, especially in cities like Pomona, Montclair, Ontario the vast majority of free stuff is going to illegal aliens and many Americans are fed with them. I give to my family members who are in need which keeps them out of the freebie lines and also volunteer and give to Senior Citizens. I also grew up poor (10 kids) and my family never got anything free - for Xmas we all got a color book, crayons, jump rope, jacks and clay - we had lots of fun with that stuff and it can all be had at the 99 cents for cheap.

What's your point?? Take your bitterness else where, no one needs to hear your terrible point of view and, well nothing really. An 8 dollar turkey has what to do with the article?? You sound like an old angry person who obviously has nothing or no one to celebrate with and so you take your anger out with aimless ramblings. Happy thanksgiving scroge

Felipe, this is off topic. Do you have a K-12 LH-SDC certificate attached to your primary teaching credential? I'm just guessing from some of your previous posts. I have a single subject credential (Social Studies) with a K-12 LH-SDC certificate and taught LH-SDC Social Studies classes (Civics, Economics, U.S. history and occasionally World History) for 20 years at the high school level. I was the only political conservative in the Social Studies Department, which made for interesting department meetings on curriculum and instructional matters.

I never earned a credential.
I completed the coursework but never did the student teaching.
I subbed and did long-term assignments (regular and special ed) for several years.
The "Whole language" trend (among other nonsense) was in full swing, and I could not stomach staying in the field.

I retired because I, too, could not stomach the ESL component requirement for continuing my clear credential. It was all politically correct diversity and multiculturalism indoctrination. It was nothing less than liberal/progressive political propaganda pawned off as educationally and instructionally necessary to work with socially and culturally diverse student populations. It was pure unadulterated BS.

I taught in a barrio high school for my last 18 years of teaching and the ESL curriculum had absolutely no bearing upon my ability to effectively deliver instruction in the classroom.(I.E., It was a complete waste of time and effort.) I put off pursuing the ESL certificate as long as I could so my Single Subject credential expiration would coincide with when I planned to retire.

I miss the student/teacher interaction, but I completely understand why California education has deteriorated to its current state of abject failure with liberals running and politicizing the educational system at every level.

God bless you for your efforts (and success) in spite of the "progressive" BS.

We need school choice or privatization ASAP.

The only reason to oppose reform is to preserve union power and maintain schools as leftist indoctrination camps for teachers and students.
