Tuesday Short Cuts

Insight: “Society cannot exist, unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere; and the less of it there is within, the more there must be without. It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things, that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters.” —Edmund Burke (1729-1797)

Braying Jackass: “God grants life, God should take it away — that’s my religious belief.” —Tim Kaine, who is Catholic and pro-abortion

Braying Jackass: “The scientific consensus is in and the argument is now over. If you do not believe in climate change, you do not believe in facts, or in science or empirical truths and therefore, in my humble opinion, should not be allowed to hold public office.” —actor Leonardo DiCaprio

Friendly fire: “You’ve got this crazy system where all of a sudden 25 million more people have health care and then the people … out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half. It’s the craziest thing in the world.” —Bill Clinton knocking ObamaCare

Blame shifting: “[ObamaCare has] eminently fixable problems in terms of strengthening the marketplace, improving the subsidies so more folks can get it, making sure everybody has Medicaid who was qualified under the original legislation, doing more on the cost containment. But you hit a point where if Congress just is not willing to make any constructive modifications and it’s all political football, then you’re getting a suboptimal solution.” —Barack Obama

Late-night humor: “Hillary Clinton has vowed to crack down on hackers who launch cyberattacks. She said, ‘If anyone’s going to abuse U.S. government computers, it’s gonna be me.’” —Conan O'Brien
