Tuesday Short Cuts

“When we think of the past, we forget the fools and remember the sage. We reverse the process for our own time.” —George Boas

Insight: “When we think of the past, we forget the fools and remember the sage. We reverse the process for our own time.” —George Boas (1891-1980)

Non Compos Mentis: “The tobacco industry knew for years and years and years and decades that smoking would kill people, would harm people and create cancer, and were hiding that fact from the people and denied it. … The oil companies knew from 1959 on. … I don’t think there’s any difference: If you walk into a room and you know you’re going to kill someone, it’s first-degree murder.” —Arnold Schwarzenegger

Sexism is heating up: “We need to consider the gendered impacts of climate change on women, girls and children.” —Canadian Minister of Environment and Climate Change Catherine McKenna

A real saint (cough): “Not everybody is comfortable taking [Trump] on. It’s uncomfortable. It makes me uncomfortable. … There are days when you can’t be the shrinking violet. I’m going to do my d—n job.” —CNN’s Jim Acosta

Double standards: “Here’s what I’m concerned about: I want the president to succeed. When the president succeeds in negotiations like [with North Korea], the United States succeeds, it makes us safer, it makes [the] whole world safer, but I am very worried he’s going to go into these negotiations and be taken advantage of.” —Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Kinda like how Iran took advantage of Obama — a deal that you justified? At least we won’t secretly be sending North Korea stashes of cash.)

Braying Jenny: “If the United States were going to have a totalitarian regime, what kind would it be? It wouldn’t be communist. It would be something quite a lot like the Tea Party. … I imagined something a lot more like Mike Pence.” —Margaret Atwood, author of “The Handmaid’s Tale

And last… “If masculinity were truly toxic, then kids growing up without dads would presumably be better off than those who have them. But, they’re not: they tend to be more depressed, aggressive & criminal. Truth is: we need more masculinity in society, not less.” —Allie Stuckey
