Tuesday Short Cuts

Insight: “Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.” —Milton Friedman (1912-2006)

The BIG lie: “Somehow people think I made it an issue. I didn’t make it an issue.” —Barack Obama on the transgender bathroom issue that he signed an executive order about

Braying Jenny: “I take [this issue of mistrust] seriously. You know, it doesn’t make me feel good when people say those things, and I recognize that I have work to do. But when I started running for the Senate in New York, a lot of the same things were said. I won. I worked hard for the people of New York, and I was re-elected with 67% of the vote. … Ask yourselves: Were 67% of the people in New York wrong? Were 66% of the American public wrong? Or maybe, just maybe, when I’m actually running for a job there is a real benefit to those on the other side in trying to stir up as much concern as possible.” —Hillary Clinton

Non Compos Mentis: “Trump’s policies would throw us into a recession. That’s the last thing we need.” —Hillary Clinton (Apparently Clinton has not heard that most of the nation is still in the throes of the Obama-Clinton recession.)

For the record: “It is a sad day when one must choose between believing the American president or the Iranian government that has vowed to wipe out Israel and then come after America and subject the world to fundamentalist Islam.” —Cal Thomas

And last… “Tehran now knows that hostage-taking pays lucrative rewards. The Iranians have taken three more hostages. They are clearly hoping for another coincidence.” —Rich Lowry
