Have you ever experienced someone pissing on your boots while telling you it’s raining? That’s the feeling for a lot of Americans after FBI Director Wray held a press conference about the IG report. Wray notes the IG report only addresses the actions of a handful of officials and “nothing” in the report “impugns” the integrity of the FBI workforce as a whole. Wray also says the report found “errors in judgment” and policy violations, but no evidence of political bias or improper consideration “actually impacting the investigations under review.” Nonetheless, Director Wray announced the start of “anti-bias” FBI training as important to the agency’s public perception for integrity. Really? FBI agents are hardly as Starbucks’s employees. Are you an American who thinks there was agent bias in the FBI’s actions toward Donald Trump before and after the election only to be told by the IG there is no bias? Is someone pissing on your boots or is there IG evidence of actual rain?
Generation XYZ has Baby X: X marks the spot on birth certificates in NYC for parents who are uncertain of stating the gender of their newborns. But Now, Mayor DeBlasio agrees with new legislation that will allow parents to retroactively name their child’s gender as X. What will be the consequences of this legislation, if it passes? Are you in favor of parents doing a re-do on a child’s gender, and then labeling the child “X.” Would you go so far as to say this is child abuse? Would you go so far as to say this is child empowerment?

The murder weapon of choice in London is the lowly kitchen knife. London surpassed New York city in its number of homicides . . . mostly with knives. It’s easy to understand why murderers choose knives over guns because of the UK’s strict gun control laws. However, killing another with a knife has gotten so bad that a London retiring judge says there should be a UK-wide program to file down the points of kitchen knives. Not only that, but maybe ban the further sale of any pointed knives. But butchers and fishmongers need knives with points, even if domestic chefs do not. In America, guns are the murder weapon of choice. Given the judge’s point of view (in America,) should Americans agree to limit the number of magazine capacity units?
