ㅤ"New police figures reveal that the U.K. is averaging at least 15 barbaric acid attacks a week. The figures, first reported by The Mirror, show a total of 2,602 reported attacks from January of 2015 to May of this year, averaging out to 15 per week. In comparison, there were only 100 total attacks reported from 2007 to 2011.
ㅤStunningly, nearly 75% of such attacks have been carried out in London, a city often praised by the Left for its multiculturalism and tolerance.
ㅤAnd the figures actually reflect a sunnier outlook than the reality of the situation, since four police forces neglected to provide data regarding acid attacks when it was requested of them. Still, Acid Survivors Trust International (ASTI) found the U.K. to have one of the highest rates of attacks per capita in the world.
ㅤTo make matters worse, the data shows a surge in children perpetrating and being victimized by acid attacks. ‘[O]ne victim was just two years old when they were doused in acid while in Cumbria two girls, aged four and five, were targeted by a six and nine-year-old,’ notes The Sun.
ㅤThe phenomenon of throwing acid in an unsuspecting person’s face is common in some Muslim-majority counties, typically victimizing women. But with the attacks in the U.K., according to ASTI, a majority of the victims are men."

ㅤ"With 10 percent of precincts reporting, the Associated Press called the race, showing Sanders carrying 94 percent of the vote. It was not immediately clear which Republican he will face in the general election in November.
ㅤSanders’ win does not come as a surprise. The self-described democratic socialist won reelection in 2012 with about 71 percent of the vote. Before that, in 2006, he carried about 65 percent of the vote."

ㅤ”On her Aug. 7 assertion that the ‘upper-middle class does not exist anymore,’ the Washington Post got fired up, citing data to declare that ‘the upper-middle class has actually grown.'”
ㅤô¿ô …WAPO is correct. But the “upper middle class” should be referred to as the “college-educated middle class.” Young people of the normal middle class can’t afford college—they are the “forgotten people.”

ㅤ"Asked if they describe themselves as feminists, less than half of the 2,000+ respondents said yes. Among women age 18-35, 46% say they consider themselves feminists. The response is even less enthusiastic among women over 35, with just about one-third (34%) calling themselves feminists.
ㅤOf the younger demographic, over twice as many Democrats (63%) identify as feminist as Republicans (29%); just under half of Independents (48%) label themselves feminists."
