The Concern: Howard Stern’s criticism of Phil Mickelson for collaborating in a Saudi-backed golf match.
It amazes me that everybody within the golf world is attacking Phil Mickelson for becoming a member of the LIV golf league as a result of it’s run by a Saudi prince (“Stern tees off on Phil,” June 15).
At the least Phil was trustworthy and mentioned he did it for the cash. What’s President Biden’s excuse? He’s operating there to beg the Saudi authorities for oil — and a lower cost on it. Why? As a result of he’s making an attempt to avoid wasting his disguise.
He destroyed our oil trade, which was self-sufficient.
Now he has to go to Saudi Arabia for oil.
How is that “inexperienced”? As an alternative of Saudis pumping it and delivery to us, burning gas within the course of, we could possibly be utilizing our personal right here. Does anybody else see a problem?
Why isn’t everybody on Biden for going to Saudi Arabia?
I needed to snort about Howard Stern calling all golfers who took half within the Saudi tour “sellouts.”
How shortly he forgets what a sellout he’s: He used to have former President Donald Trump on his present repeatedly and kissed as much as him about all the lady he would date. Then he bashed Trump as soon as he turned president. You’re the sellout, Howard.
The truth that you had an article about Phil Mickelson in your paper quoting Howard Stern was completely insane.
Howard has made enjoyable of black individuals in blackface, made enjoyable of individuals with disabilities — and I can go on and on.
It’s golf, nothing extra. I don’t see articles about these in golf or different sports activities kissing the backsides of China and the various different nations which have human-rights points.
Simply have a look at gear producers and see the place they do enterprise. And since when is the PGA with out sin?
Is Howard Stern going to go off on LeBron James? Is he going to eliminate all of the stuff in his studio that’s made in China? I doubt it.
He’s one other hypocrite who thinks individuals care what he says. This no-talent scrub made a dwelling off of degrading girls and folks with deformities. Simply check out how he mentioned Saudi individuals can be speaking to sheep or camels if it weren’t for oil.
Who’s he to guage anybody’s choices after the way in which he exploited individuals to make his fortune?
The Concern: Former NYPD Police Commissioner Ray Kelly’s column on methods to sluggish New York’s crime wave.
The nice former NYPD commissioner Ray Kelly is spot on along with his three proposals to assist cut back crime within the metropolis (“How To Crush Crime,” PostOpinion, June 16).
Nevertheless, he fails to say that these proposals imply nothing below the present bail-reform system.
Criminals know that below the present legislation, they are going to be out on the road nicely earlier than the ink on the arrest experiences dries. Till sanity is restored to the governor’s workplace in addition to the legislative department, his proposals are simply window dressing on our revolving-door judicial system.
Metropolis and state officers should cease the “appease my base” rhetoric and get critical if this metropolis is to be saved.
Police at this time know they’re below shut scrutiny concerning correct procedures. They want help from authorities and belief from the general public.
They can’t do their job in the event that they concern reprisal and second-guessing from know-it-all politicians who haven’t any clue in regards to the circumstances they face day by day (Mayor Adams excepted). Take the cuffs off and allow them to do their job.
