*Warren: Inmates Are ‘Entitled’ To Taxpayer-Funded Transgender Surgery:
Democrat presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren claimed on Thursday night that criminals who are locked up in prison are “entitled” to taxpayer-funded gender reassignment surgery while they are in prison. Warren made the remark when she was asked by CNN’s Chris Cuomo about her previous stance that it was wrong for American taxpayers to have to pay for transgender inmates to get gender reassignment surgery. “Do you regret that?” Cuomo asked.
“Yup,” Warren responded. “It was a bad answer [at the time]. I believe that everyone is entitled to medical care and medical care that they need and that includes people who are transgender who, um, it is time for them to have [transgender] surgery. I just think that’s important.”
*Theaters’ New Way to Silence Cellphones: Lock Them Up:
Cellphone interruptions are the bane of almost every performer. But now, more cultural institutions and theatrical producers in New York City are embracing a way to curb the use of the devices during shows. Namely, they are making audience members squirrel them away for the entire performance. Yondr, a company behind a lockable case that is used to store phones during shows, is gaining acceptance in more venues around town. The case (or Yondr pouch, as it is often dubbed) stays with the theatergoer throughout the performance and is locked and unlocked with the assistance of Yondr support personnel.
“Freestyle Love Supreme,” a show that combines hip-hop and improvisational comedy, has become the second Broadway production to use the Yondr system. Dave Chappelle’s 10-show Broadway engagement earlier this year was the first.
*Survey Reveals ‘Alarming’ Civic Literacy Crisis Among College Graduates:
College graduates are responsible, in part, for a “knowledge crisis” regarding basic civic literacy in the United States, according to a recent survey that revealed “alarming results.” For example, less than half of college graduates surveys knew the term lengths of U.S. Senators and Representatives. A recent survey has uncovered “alarming results” which point to “a crisis in civic understanding and the urgent need for a renewed focus on civics education at the postsecondary level,” according to the American Council of Trustees and Alumni (ACTA), which commissioned the survey. Among the results, 18 percent of respondents selecting Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) as the author of The New Deal — a series of programs and regulations that had actually been enacted by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1930s. Among college graduates, 12 percent selected Rep. Ocasio-Cortez.
Moreover, 26 percent of respondents selected Brett Kavanaugh as the chief justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, while 14 percent selected Antonin Scalia, who passed away in 2016. Among those respondents, 15 percent of college graduates selected Brett Kavanaugh, with less than half of respondents correctly selecting John Roberts. The survey, entitled, “America’s Knowledge Crisis: A Survey on Civic Literacy,” also noted that 63 percent of respondents did not know the term lengths of U.S. Senators and Representatives, with less than half of college graduates selecting the correct answer.
*Dental Hygienist Loses License, Labeled Sex Offender For Sleeping With Client – His Wife:
Alexandru Tanase was a dental hygienist until he was stripped of his license and labeled a sexual abuser for sleeping with a patient. The woman he slept with? His own wife, but that didn’t seem to matter to the College of Dental Hygienists of Ontario.
The New York Daily News reported that Tanase “confessed to cleaning the teeth of Sandi Mullins… on several occasions between April 2015 and August 2016.” The two were engaged at the time and are currently married. For three years, Tanase attempted to fight the allegations against him, arguing that he wrongly believed a Canadian law that allowed dentists to work on their significant others applied to hygienists.
On Facebook, Tanase said he thought the bill would be helpful for his wife, whom he said “suffers from dental fear and anxiety like so many other clients.” After one of the treatments, his wife, Sandi Mullins, posted a picture with Tanase. The former dental hygienist wrote on Facebook that in the “summer of 2016, a complaint was filed with the CDHO by a former friend and Facebook acquaintance of my wife’s, who saw a photo my wife posted, saying how happy she was with her dentist and what an amazing dental hygienist she had.”
*One in 7 Adults in New Orleans Has a Warrant Out For Arrest, New
There are more than 56,000 outstanding warrants in New Orleans’s Municipal Court, dating to 2002, according to city data. A staggering 1 of 7 adults in the country’s 50th-largest city have a warrant out for their arrest. Typically, the crime is failing to appear for scheduled court dates for minor, nonviolent offenses that do not carry a jail sentence, including panhandling and fishing without a license. (Two notable exceptions are battery and domestic abuse, which account for roughly 6 percent of all the warrants.) Anderson characterizes most of them as old nuisance crimes bogging down an already overburdened criminal justice system.
*YIKES! – Jeff Bezos Would Pay $9 billion a Year in Wealth Taxes Under Bernie Sanders’ Plan:
Jeff Bezos would pay about $9 billion in taxes this year under Sen. Bernie Sanders’ proposed wealth tax. As part of his primary campaign and efforts to outflank the rise of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sanders announced a wealth tax Tuesday morning that would hit multibillionaires like Bezos especially hard. The Amazon CEO would pay more in annual wealth taxes than the net worth of the 50th richest American as listed by Forbes. “I don’t think billionaires should exist,” Sanders told the New York Times. If his tax plan were put into effect, billionaires would lose half their wealth in 15 years, provided all other factors (like their stock prices or business values) remained constant.
