*The Foodie Call: Third Of Women Admit To Dating For Free Meal, Research Finds:
Who says chivalry is dead? A new trend has emerged on the dating scene in which a person schedules a date with someone they aren’t really interested in, just to get a free meal. The tactic has been dubbed a “foodie call,” and while it sounds absolutely ridiculous at first consideration, new research reveals it is happening quite often. Researchers at Azusa Pacific University and UC Merced had 357 heterosexual women answer a series of questions about their personalities, thoughts on traditional gender roles, and their personal foodie call histories. Interestingly, 33% of the participants admitted to engaging in at least one foodie call.
A second study was also performed, this time on 820 women. Of the women collected, 85% reported being heterosexual, and they were used as the focus of the study. Respondents were asked a similar set of questions as the first group, and 23% acknowledged participating in a foodie call. It’s worth noting that most of the women surveyed believed a foodie call was anywhere from moderately to extremely unacceptable. Among both groups of women, those who admitted to foodie calls scored higher in the “dark triad” (narcissism, psychopathy, and Machiavellianism) of personality traits. Women who expressed belief in more traditional gender roles were also more likely to engage in a foodie call.
*MORE P.C. MADNESS! – It Will Cost $600,000 To Cover Up George Washington Mural That ‘Traumatized’ San Fran High School Students:
It will cost a San Francisco school district more than half a million dollars to cover up a “controversial” mural of George Washington, after a handful of activists complained that the mere sight of the nation’s first president was “traumatizing” to students. Robby Soave at Reason Magazine reports that the San Francisco Unified School District will meet next week to discuss which of three “cover up” options is best for the mural, “The Life of Washington,” which graces the foyer of George Washington High School. They’ll decide whether to paint over the mural at a cost of $600,000, hide it behind paneling at a cost of $875,000, or hide it behind curtains (for the low, low price of just $300,000).
As Soave points out, that money could go to any number of important initiatives or even to hiring more teachers — the middle option, a $600,000 paint job, could support one newly hired SFUSD teacher for more than six years (SFUSD is currently experiencing a teacher shortage) — but a 13-member working group, tasked with scrubbing SFUSD of controversial historical monuments and materials says the school has no choice but to jettison the work of art. The painting “glorifies slavery, genocide, colonization, manifest destiny, white supremacy, oppression” and “doesn’t represent SFUSD values of social justice, diversity, united, student-centered,” the working group said in a report issued earlier this year.
Oddly enough, “The Life of Washington” isn’t meant to be a rosy interpretation of Washington’s life. Painted in the mid-1930s by a “Russian-American artist named Victor Arnautoff, who held leftist sympathies,” the mural actually depicts Washington setting controversial priorities, sending men to conquer the west at the expense of Native Americans, and plotting the future of a free United States while turning a blind eye to slavery. But it’s the painting’s depiction of Washington’s darker tendencies that ultimately irked a group of “outside busybodies,” according to National Review. Intent on ignoring the actual content or meaning of the painting, several activists who showed up at the working group’s meeting on the murals suggested that the depicted violence against Native Americans and other minorities be taken at face value, not as a commentary on Washington’s larger legacy. “Why do we have to explain the pain caused by the visual offense that we see in that building that is supposed to be an institution for learning?” one woman reportedly asked the working group.
*DISGRACE! – Welcome to Garcetti’s L.A.: Heaps of Trash, Hordes of Rats and very Little Leadership:
Los Angeles is in troubled waters on a ship without a captain, and though there might be a few pretenders on the bridge, nobody trusts them. We found out on Tuesday that although the city and county spent $600 million last year to chip away at the number of homeless people, the total increased by 16% to nearly 60,000. That same day, voters said absolutely, positively no way to a parcel tax that would have raised money for struggling L.A. Unified schools, and the vote reflected a resounding lack of faith in school administrators to spend the money wisely. A shame, in my opinion. Whatever the sins of the past, shorting 600,000 mostly poor kids at a time when poverty has spilled onto our streets is not the smartest plan.
But this comes back to the leadership problem. Judging by my reader responses, it did not help that one of the parcel tax advocates was L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti. That would be the guy who has presided over the astounding spread of homeless encampments and trash-strewn streets after persuading voters to reverse the trends by taxing themselves.
Garcetti had a worse week than that heavyweight champ who got clobbered by an unknown contender from Imperial County. And nobody else in the local political class looked much better. L.A. County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas said local leaders were “pretty well stunned by this data” on the increase in homelessness. I slapped myself and read it again. Yep, he said that.
Los Angeles looks as if it’s digging out from a hurricane, with hordes on the streets, tents everywhere and armies of rodents on the march, inciting fears of disease. We learned from Dakota Smith and David Zahniser in last week’s avalanche of Mad Max news that the rat circus at City Hall was tied to homeless people using the grates around the building as bathrooms. And my colleagues Emily Alpert-Reyes, Doug Smith and Ben Oreskes reported that the number of 311 calls for help shot up 167% between 2016 and 2018.
*Data: Average of 124K Anchor Babies Born in U.S. This Year So Far:
An average of about 124,000 children of illegal aliens, commonly referred to as “anchor babies,” have been born in the United States this year thus far, analysis of Census Bureau data concludes. In the first five months of 2019, about 124,000 children of illegal aliens were born on U.S. soil, thus solidifying their permanent American citizenship due to the nation’s birthright citizenship policy. The total derives from a Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) analysis of Census Bureau data, which reveals that, on average, about 300,000 anchor babies are born in the country every year, with nearly 25,000 anchor babies born every month.
The Supreme Court has never explicitly ruled that the children of illegal aliens must be granted birthright citizenship and many legal scholars dispute the idea.
*Alice Cooper Reveals Death Pact with Wife Sheryl Goddard:
This Hollywood Vampire refuses to die alone. Rock legend Alice Cooper has made a death pact with his wife of 43 years, Sheryl Goddard — insisting, “We are going to go together.” “We’ve made a pact – there is no way of surviving without each other,” the 71-year-old rocker told The Mirror. Cooper — the frontman of Johnny Depp’s supergroup, The Hollywood Vampires — insisted he has “never cheated” on his wife since they met in 1975.
The “School’s Out” hitman now insists their devotion is so strong they are planning the shocking twist to the “till death do us part” part of marriage vows. “I couldn’t live without her. We always said there will never be a time when one of us will be mourning the other,” Cooper told The Mirror.
*Andrew Dice Clay and Roseanne Barr Announce Standup Tour:
Andrew Dice Clay is going on tour with Roseanne Barr — and they’re doing it for America. The comedian — the first to ever sell out Madison Square Garden, despite being banned from MTV for life for his material — told Fox News that the “Mr. and Mrs. America” tour was inspired by the national obsession with political discourse and, occasionally, the alleged policing of comedians’ language. Clay, 61, and Barr, 66, have known one another for nearly three decades, and the Brooklyn native doesn’t believe the “Roseanne” star truly has a mean bone in her body. “She’s a comic because she’s wacky. I’ve known her since we were kids,” Clay told Fox News. “When people ask about what she said, I say, ‘She’s a comic!’ We gotta stop policing comedians. This is America!”
*Israel Holocaust Museum Responds to AOC’s Statement on
A Holocaust memorial museum in Israel responded Wednesday to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.)comparing migrant detention centers on the U.S.-Mexicoborder to concentration camps in the Holocaust.
Ocasio-Cortez said in an Instagram live video this week that “The U.S. is running concentration camps on our southern border, and that is exactly what they are. If that doesn’t bother you … I want to talk to the people that are concerned enough with humanity to say that ‘never again’ means something.” She doubled down on her position on Tuesday, tweeting that “it is the conclusion of expert analysis” that “this administration has established concentration camps on the southern border.”
The Holocaust memorial museum, Yad Vashem, responded to the tweet, saying that “Concentration camps assured a slave labor supply to help in the Nazi war effort, even as the brutality of life inside the camps helped assure the ultimate goal of ‘extermination through labor.’” The tweet included a link to Yad Vashem’s website discussing concentration camps.
