Tuesday Short Cuts

Insight: “Our practical choice is not between a tax-cut deficit and a budgetary surplus. It is between two kinds of deficits: a chronic deficit of inertia, as the unwanted result of inadequate revenues and a restricted economy; or a temporary deficit of transition, resulting from a tax cut designed to boost the economy, increase tax revenues, and achieve … a budget surplus.” —John F. Kennedy (1917-1963)

Upright: “[A] deep-rooted culture of incompetence and corruption has made it virtually impossible for government to function fairly and efficiently. And because most government employees are shielded by layers of protection, they couldn’t care less. Never before in the history of this nation has there been a greater divide between a self-serving federal leviathan and millions of Americans… ‘Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem,’ Ronald Reagan reminded us during his inaugural address in 1981. Nothing’s changed since then, with one exception: It’s gotten far worse.” —Arnold Ahlert

Demo-gogues: “We only get one home. We only get one planet. There is no plan B. I don’t want my grandkids to not be able to swim in Hawaii, or not to be able to climb a mountain and see a glacier, because we didn’t do something about it.” —Barack Obama

Non Compos Mentis: “The Koran teaches persecution is worse than slaughter. Then it says, retaliation is prescribed in matters of the slain. Retaliation is a prescription from God to calm the breaths of those whose children have been slain. So if the federal government will not intercede in [the] affairs [of black Americans], then we must rise up and kill those who kill us. Stalk them and kill them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling.” —Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan

The BIG lie: “This was a three-year effort by this fake group [Center for Medical Progress] to try to entrap doctors, and then splice and edit videos to make it look like they were doing something wrong, which they were not. … I think it’s really important to understand that [Congress’ effort to defund Planned Parenthood] is about denying women access to health care in this country.” —Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards (Leave it to Ms. Richards to accuse CMP of splicing…)

And last… “Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer provoked world outrage for luring the popular Cecil the Lion off his African game preserve with a dead animal and then shooting him dead and beheading him. The entire world was horrified. It’s got ISIS seriously re-thinking their decision to take on white people.” —Argus Hamilton
