Tuesday Short Cuts

Insight: “Our pretended treaties, then, being made with no legitimate or bona fide nations, or representatives of nations, and being made, on our part, by persons who have no legitimate authority to act for us, have intrinsically no more validity than a pretended treaty made by the Man in the Moon with the king of the Pleiades.” —political theorist Lysander Spooner (1808-1887)

Upright: “After more than six years of Barack Obama in the White House, have we learned nothing about the dangers of choosing a President of the United States on the basis of sound bites, with no track record to check against his rhetoric? … [V]oting to put Obama in the White House was like flying a plane through mountains at night. If we manage to get through the next year and a half without crashing, should we try that gamble again?” —Thomas Sowell

Braying Jenny: “What Donald Trump said about Megyn Kelly is outrageous, but what the rest of the Republicans are saying about all women is also outrageous.” —Hillary Clinton (And what Bill Clinton DID to women is even more outrageous.)

Village Idiots: “I’m not sure how titties are worse than guns.” —Miley Cyrus

For the record: “Gay teens have higher pregnancy rates than their straight peers.” —headline from the Minneapolis Star-Tribune (“Perhaps, just perhaps, sexuality is more malleable — more morality-driven — than we’ve been led to believe, with more sexually libertine cultures willing to explore a variety of different (and riskier) sexual behaviors. Perhaps, just perhaps, the campaign to normalize gay culture was a tad misleading about the habits and attitudes within that culture.” —National Review’s David French)

And last… “Top Democrat Chuck Schumer will oppose Obama’s Iran deal. He was unavailable for comment as he prepares for his IRS audit covering years 1973-2014.” —Twitter satirist @weknowwhatsbest
