Tuesday Short Cuts

Insight: “Government cannot make man richer, but it can make him poorer.” —Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973)

Belly laugh of the week: “There’s just no shred of evidence to suggest that I’m favoring Hillary Clinton.” —DNC chief Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Surrender: “Well, [Merrick Garland] received, you know, overwhelming support — I think even from Senator Hatch — so of course we’d think about it. … I don’t care about [his] peccadilloes from 30 years ago.” —John Kasich

Good question: “[P]oor black, brown, red people are catching so much hell on every level — education, job market, mass media, family’s weak, communities shot through with too many guns and drugs. We acted as if we could evade it and avoid it. That’s what Barack Obama did for the first six years. He held it at arm’s length. And of course what happened? You end up with a Black Lives Matter movement under a black president. What does that say?” —Cornell West

Two peas in a pod: “President Castro I think has pointed out that in his view making sure that everybody’s getting a decent education or health care, has basic security in old age, that those things are human rights as well. I personally would not disagree with him. … I actually welcome President Castro commenting on some of the areas where he feels that we’re falling short, because I think we should not be immune or afraid of criticism or discussion as well.” —Barack Obama

That’ll scare ‘em: “We stand in solidarity with [Belgium] in condemning these outrageous attacks against innocent people. This is yet another reminder that the world must unite, we must be together.” —Barack Obama

And last… “Obama posed in front of a terrorist mural yesterday, so I guess a couple lines vaguely condemning Islamic terrorism [in Belgium] is all we could expect.” —Ben Shapiro
