Political Editors / Feb. 28, 2018

Wednesday Short Cuts

“The Left fights little evils, or even non-evils, rather than great evils.” —Dennis Prager

For the record: “The call to let 16-year-olds vote is a call to amplify the votes of teachers’ unions. If you think political indoctrination in the schools is bad now, wait until it has the direct power to tip election results.” —Robert Tracinski

Braying Jenny: “Not all men are mass shooters, but most mass shooters are men. … If we can equate femininity to passivity with little statistical evidence, why is it that we cannot equate masculinity to gun violence with large statistical evidence? … We often label these folks as ‘madmen’ with ‘mental illness,’ but when will we begin to label masculinity as having gone ‘mad’? … The question is not if masculinity is a social construct, but rather how many more lives will it take to transform this construction?” —Rutgers University student Francesca Petrucci

Sure, if they want to ensure mass unprofitability: “Here’s an idea. What if the finance industry — credit card companies like Visa, Mastercard and American Express; credit card processors like First Data; and banks like JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo — were to effectively set new rules for the sales of guns in America? Collectively, they have more leverage over the gun industry than any lawmaker.” —New York Times columnist Andrew Ross Sorkin on “How Banks Could Control Gun Sales if Washington Won’t”

Faux condemnation: “The Democrats made a huge mistake by chastising the Trump supporters, and that was disgusting to me. Of course they’re not going to vote for Hillary Clinton; they’re going to vote for Donald Trump. You laughed at them when their plight is very real.” —actress Jennifer Lawrence

Delusions of grandeur: “One of the things I’m proud of in my administration was the fact that … we didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us. There were mistakes. We’d screw up. But there wasn’t anything venal in eight years.” —Barack Obama

Non Compos Mentis: “That 21% tax [rate] is going to add over $1 trillion to an already $21 trillion debt, and I think we are not paying much attention to that while we are robbing from the future of young people in America, who ultimately are going to have to pay for a $21 trillion tax deficit.” —Starbucks Executive Chairman Howard Schultz (All together now: It’s not a cash flow problem; it’s a spending problem.)

And last… “Fighting evil is the Left’s Achilles heel. As I have repeatedly noted, the Left fights little evils, or even non-evils, rather than great evils.” —Dennis Prager
