Monday Short Cuts

“Continued dependency is the fuel on which big government runs.” —Allie Beth Stuckey

The Gipper: “Evil is powerless if the good are unafraid.”

Braying Jackass: “We never had one like this who was so aggressively stupid, takes pride that you cannot get information into his head. … It’s not just the clown, it’s the circus. Donald Trump could not be where he is without all these enablers.” —Bill Maher

Alpha Jackass I: “Look, access to abortion is good and important. Some people say abortion is ‘killing a baby.’ It’s not. It’s stopping a baby from happening. … Abortion, I salute you. Women, if you need an abortion, get one. God bless abortions and God bless America.” —"comedian" Michelle Wolf

Alpha Jackass II: “Ben Shapiro is the Jew who helps other Jews onto the train.” —The Verge co-founder Joshua Topolsky

Alpha Jackass III: “Jeff Sessions shamelessly quoted the Bible in his fascist attempt to legitimize child-abductions. His statement amounts to blasphemy against Christianity. Its ugliness reminded me of the terror the Taliban inflicted upon the women who simply ventured outside their homes to make a living or attend school. … There is no difference between a clean-shaven white man in a suit justifying cruelties in the name of a religion and a bearded brown man in a tunic and headgear doing the same. They are both ignorant maniacs whom society must confront and defeat.” —Louisville Courier-Journal columnist Siddique Malik

Non Compos Mentis: “Hearts and prayers are with those boys in Thailand, trapped in the cave. I hope our hearts and prayers are also with thousands of children, toddlers and infants, removed from their parents by the Trump administration, under zero tolerance. They’re trapped in a bureaucratic cave, too, so let’s not forget them.” —Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL)

The BIG Lie: “Sen. McConnell invented this new rule and wouldn’t consider a meeting with Merrick Garland.” —Dick Durbin

And last… “Big government isn’t intended to get the poor out of poverty. It’s intended to keep them there. Continued dependency is the fuel on which big government runs. As Reagan said: The first rule of bureaucracy is to protect the bureaucracy.” —Allie Beth Stuckey
