“New York’s law lets municipalities
to set up charitable reserve funds that would give tax credits equal to 95% of a contribution.” [edits in bold]
“Since the funds were set up, New York collected $93 million
to for the Charitable Gifts Trust Fund to fund education and health care.” [edit in bold]
“Scarsdale’s charitable fund received more than $500,000 in contributions in 2018, but then dried up after the regulations were issued.” [what dried up, the fund or the contributions?]
Foolishly building on my 1/1 record (predicting Trump would win, but totally missing the vote %), I predict the Democrats will nominate Kamala Harris for President and Elizabeth Warren for VP. Why? Because they are so convinced they are riding the tide of history, and the only way to acknowledge that Hillary Clinton lost is that she was the only woman on the ticket, and because intersectionality rules all, it follows that the Democratic ticket must be all female.
Trump will win every state except CA and NY and DC.
I read that a twitter hashtag to boycott Home Depot is trending. This would apparently be due to co-founder Bernie Marcus’s support of President Trump. Not sure of the impact and I avoid shopping there anyway. My avoidance is not a statement about the co-founder’s alleged political preferences, but because I think the quality of Home Depot products is not very good. Employees are rarely helpful, either.
