Tuesday Short Cuts

Insight: “There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.” —British economist John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946)

Upright, part I: “The pro-life movement is not about repressing sexuality. It’s about acknowledging that you are taking another human life and extinguishing it before it has the chance to flourish. You can be as sexually free as you want, but just because you can’t be responsible enough to keep from creating a brand new human being doesn’t mean you can end its life and pretend there are no consequences.” —Red State’s Joe Cunningham

Upright, part II: “The idea that disrupting and protesting Bernie Sanders speeches will change what is wrong in America is lunacy. The ‘BlackLivesMatter’ movement is focused on the wrong targets, to the detriment of blacks who would like to see real change and to the benefit of its powerful white liberal funders using the attacks on Sanders for political purposes that mean nothing for the problems that face our community.” —Ben Carson

Braying Jenny: “[Gov. Scott Walker is] tightening the noose, literally, around African-Americans.” —Rep. Gwen Moore (Literally!)

Double standards: “Unfortunately, Congress left town for five full weeks — and they left behind a stack of unfinished business.” —Barack Obama on Saturday, one day before returning from Martha’s Vineyard, where he spent two weeks vacationing

And last… “When asked if she ‘wiped’ her server clean, Hillary Clinton responded: ‘What? With a cloth or something?’ Yes. Like maybe that white flag you raised in Benghazi.” —Fred Thompson
