Boy, does San Francisco have their priorities in order or what?

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco will spend up to $600,000 to paint over historical artwork at a public school depicting the life of George Washington, a mural once seen as educational and innovative but now criticized as racist and degrading for its depiction of black and Native American people.

The “Life of Washington” was painted by Victor Arnautoff, one of the foremost muralists in the San Francisco area during the Depression. The San Francisco School Board’s decision to paint over the 83-year-old mural is prompting some to worry that other artwork from the so-called New Deal era could face a similar fate because of changing sensitivities.

In addition to depicting Washington as a soldier, surveyor and statesman, the 13-panel, 1,600-sqaure foot mural at George Washington High School contains images of white pioneers standing over the body of a Native American and slaves working at Washington’s Mount Vernon estate in Virginia.

After spending decades in a private collection, a resurfaced letter written by America’s first president praises God for the ratification of the United States Constitution.

It is over 230 years old, dating back to 1788.

The price tag?

A cool $140,000.

From Fox News:

The letter to Richard Peters, speaker of the Pennsylvania House, is signed Sept. 7, 1788, and praises God for the ratification of the U.S. Constitution.

Written a week after Washington told Alexander Hamilton that he would likely accept calls to assume the presidency, the letter came at a time when the Constitution was under attack. Some states wanted to hold a second Convention that may have undermined the Constitution.

Zoom in to read:

New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) is the mayor of gaffe city.

Noting that the age to run for president is 35 and Alexandria is only 29, a photographer said: “You can’t even run for president for another six years.

Ocasio-Cortez: “No, not for a long time. Thank God. Although we’ve been joking that because the Equal Rights Amendment hasn’t been passed yet, the Constitution technically says he cannot run unless he’s 35. … So what we’ll do is we’ll force the Republican Party to pass the Equal Rights Amendment by threatening to run for president.

Uh, Alexandria? The constitution does not say “he.”

As Playbook notes, the Constitution does not say “he” cannot run — it says “any person.”

According to Article II Section I of the Constitution:

No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen Years a resident within the United States.

The mayor of gaffe city, the governor D’oh!-ville strikes again – with a vengeance!

Two Men Break Into Texas Man’s Home Before Dawn. It’s A Huge Mistake And You Already Know Why.

God bless Texas.

A homeowner in Nacogdoches, Texas was forced to defend his home from intruders, one of whom was carrying a pistol. As you can probably imagine, with this story having unfolded in Texas, these two punks learned you don’t mess with a man’s home, especially in the Lone Star state. This, ladies and gentlemen, is precisely why we have the Second Amendment and why we need to fight hard against the liberals who want to strip us of our right to bear arms. Gun control laws don’t stop bad guys from getting guns. They just create more victims of violence instead. Here’s more from TheBlaze: After the single shot, both men apparently no longer felt welcome and bolted from the home, KYTX noted. Officers responded to the home invasion report just after 5:30 a.m. — and later responded to a nearby hospital regarding an individual suffering from a gunshot wound to the arm, the station said. Turns out the patient was the alleged intruder the homeowner shot, KTYX reported. Laquintin Lockhart, 30, was then arrested at the hospital on Monday afternoon. He’s been charged with aggravated robbery according to local law enforcement. Police went on to say the second suspect is still on the loose, though the department is continuing to investigate. Guns are nothing more than tools, which means they are incapable of committing acts of right and wrong. What matters is whose hands these tools are in, and unfortunately, gun control laws only serve to harm law-abiding citizens, a simple fact the left just refuses to acknowledge. Without the Second Amendment guaranteeing that the God-given right to own a firearm for the protection of life, liberty, and property, this man would’ve been victimized and possibly deprived of his most precious gift. It’s not fair to leave folks like him…

AOC’s Constituents Get Rude Awakening When Trying To Contact Her Office By Phone

So much for being the “future of the Democratic Party,” huh?

Published

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just keeps adding more and more reasons to the list for why she should never, ever be re-elected to the congressional seat she currently holds, which should be alarming to her, but she seems to be so out of touch with reality she doesn’t even know it’s happening. Her latest goof up has to do with the fact that she’s now become the least accessible representative in New York City, with the NY and D.C. offices now using filtering systems to prevent callers from speaking with an actual, real life human being. This is not how you win elections, AOC. From TheBlaze: The Post called the offices of each of the 13 lawmakers representing New York City, and all the offices of each of those lawmakers had a person answering the phone — except Ocasio-Cortez’s offices. A congressional Democratic aide accused Ocasio-Cortez of not caring about her constituents. “She has no plans to serve the people. That’s why she has no constituent services operation,” the aide told The Post. “If you’re a grandma in Queens who needs help with her Medicare and you call AOC’s ‘district office’ you get a recording that tells you to visit the website instead. What kind of elitist nonsense is that? Shameful, it’s all shameful.” Calls to the Washington, D.C., office are filtered. Only callers with D.C. or New York City area codes have a chance at getting through; other callers are given an automated message that directs them to Ocasio-Cortez’s website. Calls to her district office in Jackson Heights give constituents the option to press 2, and directs other callers to visit the website or send an email. Pressing 2 does not route the call to an aide or receptionist, however, it simply allows the caller to leave a message. So…
