Thursday Short Cuts

Non Compos Mentis: “There is no such thing as black racism.” —Florida Gulf Coast University professor Ted Thornhill

Insight: “The maxim, that governments ought to train the people in the way in which they should go, sounds well. But is there any reason for believing that a government is more likely to lead the people in the right way than the people to fall into the right way of themselves?” —Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800-1859)

Good question: “If Nancy Pelosi thinks that $1,000 is ‘crumbs,’ why does she support a law that requires every American who contributes more than $200 (and as little as $10 in some states) to a candidate, political party, or PAC, to be reported to the government, with their names, addresses, and employment information published for the world to see?” —Bradley A. Smith

For the record: “There are 690,000 official DACA registrants and the president sent over what amounts to be two-and-a-half times that number, to 1.8 million. The difference between 690 [thousand] and 1.8 million were the people that some would say were too afraid to sign up, others would say were too lazy to get off their asses, but they didn’t sign up.” —White House Chief of Staff John Kelly

Amazingly, this rube was once the attorney general… “If one looks at the dismissal of James Comey and the reasons why the president told Lester Holt he did that … I think you technically have a case of obstruction of justice.” —Eric Holder

Braying Jackass: “That apology [by the IRS for targeting conservatives] was unnecessary, unfounded and inconsistent, it seems to me.” —Eric Holder

Non Compos Mentis: “The most common complaint about my course [titled ‘White Racism’] that I’ve encountered thus far is that anybody can be racist. They ask indignantly: What about ‘black racism’? Or what about other forms of racism they believe exist on the part of Latinos, Asian Americans and Native peoples? My answer is: There is no such thing as black racism.” —Florida Gulf Coast University professor Ted Thornhill

And last… “Does anybody know the longest consecutive time Nancy Pelosi has spoken in defense of American citizens?” —Liz Wheeler
