Friday Short Cuts

Insight: “The principle that the majority have a right to rule the minority, practically resolves all government into a mere contest between two bodies of men, as to which of them shall be masters, and which of them slaves; a contest, that — however bloody — can, in the nature of things, never be finally closed, so long as man refuses to be a slave.” —Lysander Spooner (1808-1887)

Belly laugh of the week: “It appears to be a kind of hybrid workplace jihad.” —ABC’s Brian Ross, the same guy who wrongly blamed a Tea Party member for a previous mass murder

Dezinformatsia: “[T]he fact of the matter is, among developed nations, [Obama’s right]. These sorts of mass shooting with the regularity of where they occur in the United States — you don’t find that in other countries.” —Fox News’ Shepherd Smith

Alpha Jackass: “[The NRA is] a quasi militant wing of the Republican party. They’re being pushed more and more into the camp of guns for everybody any time they want them. And they’re being pushed by — they have a competitor now, gun owners of America.” —Harry Reid

Non Compos Mentis: “Sensible gun laws work. We’ve proven it in California and we are not going to give up.” —Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) (ATF Says Weapons Used in San Bernardino Shooting Were Illegal in California” —PJ Media)

Demo-gogues: “Gun violence is a crisis of epidemic proportion in our nation. We’ve had far too many moments of silence on the floor of the House. And while it is right to respectfully acknowledge the losses, we can no longer remain silent. What gives us the right to hold moments of silence when we do nothing to act upon the cause of the grief?” —Nancy Pelosi

Village Idiots: “In this incident, of course not.” —Obama spokesman Josh Earnest’s candid response to whether Democrats’ background check proposals would have stopped the San Bernardino Islamist attack

And last… “An entire presidency predicated on Twitter accounts and hashtags is going to lecture about prayers not being enough. Beyond parody.” —Stephen Miller
