Zuckerberg, wife gift $120M to CA schools

AP story here.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, are donating $120 million to the San Francisco Bay Area's public school system.
Boy, aren't the children in the SF area school district lucky to have people like this couple to help their local public education institution obtain USD balances to use to provision their school system.

If not for these two, where else could the USD balances have come from as every other current libertarian moron administered government institution in the country is "out of money!" at this time.

These two have indeed saved the day for these poor children in the bay area who just want a robust primary education like every other previous generation of US citizens who have enjoyed a robust public primary education.

Thank goodness these two bazillionaires have come to their rescue!

I'm sure these two fell pretty good about themselves after taking the liberty of providing this huge free will donation of all their hard-earned "money" .. what kind of person wouldn't?

Ah yes, the "font" of private charity. Surpassed in its nobility only by its eternally springing reliability.

Basically, the Zuckerbergs just increased the taxes they paid to the state of California by $120 million. The only difference was that this "tax" was "earmarked" for the SF school district. California's finances have been in a disarray ever since the tax revenues started going down following the "Great Recession"

Hooray for the Facebook Fiat!

Check out what happened to his $100 million donation to the Newark, NJ, public schools 4 years ago. Business Insider has a good summary and a link to the original New Yorker story:

I think he may have been "zuckered" again.
