  •  And many of us give to charity (5+ / 0-)

    without taking a tax deduction for it, because we don't have enough deductions to itemize.

    •  Real charity doesn't care if it's tax deductible. (2+ / 0-)

      It's nice, but not a reason.  

      We do it because it's the right thing to do.  No matter how much we are struggling, we know there are others who are worse off, and we feel it is our obligation as human beings to help.

      Somehow, the right just doesn't get that.  I wish they did.

      :-(

      We cannot call ourselves a civilised society if we refuse to protect the weakest among us.

    •  Right (0+ / 0-)

      I'm talking about their need to go running around telling everyone, how they are always about giving like the rest of us never give at any time.

      Don't watch it dad, you will have brain cells jumping to their suicide. Me, when I learned dad had been watching Fox.

        who said that if Obama limited the percentage of income given to charity that could be deducted, he'd have to reduce his charitable contributions accordingly? I remember him really getting hammered on Twitter...oh yeah, this guy.
