A wiretap – also known as an electronic surveillance – is allowed for two purposes – Criminal Investigations and Foreign Intelligence purposes. Our Fourth Amendment gives us the right to privacy, and  often for criminal investigations a warrant to wiretap is required from a judge before any kind of eavesdropping can occur. With foreign intelligence, (which relates to national security) it can be trickier to protect our privacy, but nonetheless, the fourth amendment is still in play. With foreign intelligence the government needs to weigh national security with privacy concerns. In light of two years worth of examples that Intelligence agencies have misrepresented or lied about uncovering American Citizens, (the government term is “unmasking”), do you think the FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) is still a way to provide security for American citizens or not?

California guru and chef, Davie Binkle, had been praised by Michelle Obama for his contribution to provide health meals for
school children supporting First Lady Obama’s nutrition program for school lunches. But now, he’s been arrested for Fraud.  As the Director of Food Services for the LA School District, he had the responsibility to oversee the serving of 700,000 meals per day tp
school children, but now faces the charge of embezzling LAUSD funds. Forgetting the absolute irony of kids hating his “healthy”
lunches, does this abdicate First Ladies from doing anything that involves public policy?

Topic: Leadership, patriotism, and the Take A Knee controversy.

There’s lots of man-shaming going on for “man spreading” these days. Man spreading is new term used to describe the practice many man have of sitting in public transport with legs wide apart. In doing so, sometimes a man covers more than one designated space and is called a “seat hog.” Commuter etiquette is critical to enforce for all to behave well on subways, trains and buses. However, “man
spreading” is increasingly being identified as a sexist display of male dominance. According to the New York Times, man-spreaders are
“the bane of many female subway riders” and New York Post calls them a “scourge”. On the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Hillary said President Putin showed his sexism toward her by man-spreading every time they met with each other. Do you agree, or is man-spreading just another word for man-sitting, meaning men are simply more anatomically comfortable sitting this way? Do men need more than one seat?
