Tuesday Short Cuts

Insight: “It is often asserted that the world has made a great deal of progress since 1776, that we have had new thoughts and new experiences which have given us a great advance over the people of that day, and that we may therefore very well discard their conclusions for something more modern. But that reasoning cannot be applied to this great charter. If all men are created equal, that is final. If they are endowed with inalienable rights, that is final. If governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, that is final. No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions.” —Calvin Coolidge, Address at the Celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia on July 5, 1926

Upright: “Today, too many Americans take freedom for granted, as just another entitlement, something that does not require them to take any personal responsibility. … A generation that owes so much to the past acts as if they owe nothing to anybody. Their idea of freedom is exemption from laws or obligations.” —Thomas Sowell

The BIG lie: “I learned about it in the news and it was a short, chance meeting at an airport tarmac and both of their planes, as I understand it, were landing on the same tarmac at about the same time and the attorney general’s husband was there. … It was purely social. They did not veer off of speaking about those kinds of, you know, very common exchanges.” —Hillary Clinton

Blind squirrel finds a nut: “[N]o matter what happens, if [Clinton] is exonerated … there will still be suspicions, not only among the Donald Trump people, but among a lot of other people. There will be suspicions that it was politically influenced. This was absolutely a disastrous decision on their part.” —NBC’s Andrea Mitchell

Non Compos Mentis: “I find it hard to believe that [Hillary Clinton] would do anything intentionally wrong.” —Joe Biden

And last… “For a country founded by the average man rising up against an oppressive government, we sure have an obsession about not giving up our guns.” —Frank Fleming
