Wednesday Short Cuts

Ed Feulner’s profound insight: “If you have no belief in yourself or your abilities, you’ll have no faith in your capacity to solve your problems.”

Insight: “There is no happiness, there is no liberty, there is no enjoyment of life, unless a man can say, when he rises in the morning, I shall be subject to the decision of no unwise judge today.” —Daniel Webster (1782-1852)

Upright: “The pessimist in American society believes the reason some people are poor is that others are rich. He refuses to see any cause-and-effect relationship between behavior and result. This is the same as saying, ‘The reason some people are sick is that others are well.’ Because they blame others for their problems, pessimists seek solutions outside themselves for those problems. If you have no belief in yourself or your abilities, you’ll have no faith in your capacity to solve your problems. A pessimist is always demanding help, regardless of whether that help is effective.” —Ed Feulner

Dumb and dumber: “Donald Trump married one American (his second wife) and two women from what used to be Soviet Yugoslavia: Ivana-Slovakia, Melania-Slovenia.” —MSNBC’s Joy Reid, who The Washington Free Beacon points out “managed to make three different errors in a single tweet

Tolerance: “Yes, ALL white people are racist. Yes, ALL men are sexist. Yes, ALL cis people are transphobic. We have to unpack that. That’s the work!” —Georgetown professor Preston Mitchum

Non Compos Mentis: “We are used to a history of politicians bending the truth, but now we get politicians breaking the truth. That’s a new thing. We hadn’t had politicians explicitly lying in the way they do now. That’s really new.” —Jonathan Gruber, the mastermind behind the biggest lie of all: The (Un)Affordable Care Act

And last… “Why does the Left seek to support radical Islam so ardently? Because the Left believes that the quickest way to destroy Western civilization is no longer class warfare but multicultural warfare: Simply ally with groups that hate the prevailing system and work with them to take it down. Then, the Left will build on the ashes of the old system.” —Ben Shapiro
