Friday Short Cuts

Insight: “Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They always run out of other people’s money. It’s quite a characteristic of them.” —Margaret Thatcher (1925-2013)

Upright: “Since the Kyoto Accord was struck in 1997, Energy Department data show, U.S. output of greenhouse gases plunged 7.3%, even though real U.S. GDP over that time has grown a whopping 52%. We’re greener today than we have been in decades. Go figure. For all this progress, we can thank the fracking business. … Here’s an idea: If the Nobel committee geniuses really want to reward those who’ve done the most to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, they should give Gore’s Nobel to the U.S. fracking industry.” —Investor’s Business Daily

Braying Jackass: “I think that Donald Trump has already done a number of things which legitimately raise the question of impeachment … I think that we need to begin investigations, to not go after Donald Trump, but to protect our Constitution and the presidency of the United States to make sure that nobody can monetize the presidency and make profit off of it for their own gain.” —Rep. Keith Ellison (Good thing they felt the same way during Obama’s presidency. Oh, wait…)

Braying Jenny: “I’ve never seen such a demonstration [referring to the Women’s March] — both the numbers and the rapport of the people in that crowd. There was no violence, it was orderly. So yes, we are not experiencing the best times but there is reason to hope that that we will see a better day."—Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Bias? What bias? "I read The Washington Post and The New York Times every day, and I think that the reporters are trying to tell the public the way things are.” —Justice Ginsburg

Revisionist history: “This makes the Tea Party look like pre-school. I mean seriously.” —Michael Moore on Democrats’ hijacking Republican town halls

And last… “Bias is being more upset at a Trump tweet than you were at Obama naming journalists as conspirators and going after them with the DOJ.” —Stephen Miller
