Dear Friends,

Tomorrow, Tuesday, November 28 is Giving Tuesday. The California FFA Foundation is raising money to support FFA members who don't have the opportunity to own an FFA jacket. I know many of you have already received this, maybe more than once. Please consider donating $75. California FFA is growing and should come close to hitting 100,000 members this year. Many cannot afford to wear the blue. Would you take a moment to consider this donation. If this is not a good time, and even if it is, would you take a few moments and email this to your contacts? There are several of you receiving this who are or were agriculture teachers. Would you pass this on to past members and parents and give them the opportunity to support the organization? Also, liking and sharing this on Facebook would also help to get the word out. Go to https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=california%20ffa%20foundation

Our goal this year is to be able to purchase 400 jackets. A debt of gratitude goes to Blue Diamond Growers for matching any donations up to 200 jackets. You might buy a can of almonds to thank them!

Thank you!

Bill Loveridge


Hey, Trump voters. I suppose you really think this tax scam the Republicans are working on is going to help you. If you have been listening their aim is to eliminate the inheritance tax, the alternative minimum tax, and reduce the upper tax bracket as well as the corporate tax rate. Now, remember you hate deficit spending… or so you say. This will add 1.5 trillion to the debt. Huh! To do this you either cut spending or borrow. So when the United States is broke you same pikers will try to cut Medicare, Social Security, Medicaid, ag subsidies, disaster relief. All those programs that help Americans. This huge tax cut will only benefit the multinationals and mega wealthy who apparently are not wealthy enough. Is America ready to return to the middle ages and fiefdoms? Pick your Lord, Bezos, Koch, Ivanka, Murdoch, Putin.
