Friday Short Cuts

"This is a time where we need the God of the universe to step in and to change people's hearts." —Adam Kinzinger

Political Editors · Mar. 15, 2019

Non Compos Mentis: “I myself have always been for lowering the voting age to 16. I think it’s really important to capture kids when they’re in high school, when they’re interested in all of this, when they’re learning about government, to be able to vote.” —Nancy Pelosi, trolling for more Democrat votes

Endless hot air: “What is going on in the public square right now is more important than any time since the Civil War. We are facing an ecological crisis that can bring about the end of civilization.” —Al Gore

The BIG Lie: “Let us all be well aware that life will be a lot tougher for the generations that follow us, no matter what we do. It is only a matter of degrees. Along this current trajectory, there will be people who can no longer live in the cities they call home today. There is food grown in this country that will no longer prosper in these soils. There is going to be massive migration of tens or hundreds of millions of people from places that are going to be uninhabitable or under the sea. This is the final chance. The scientists are unanimous on this. We have no more than 12 years to take incredibly bold action on this crisis.” —Beto O'Rourke

The BIG Lie II: “Democracy should mean taking power and wealth from those who hoard it, and making sure it belongs to everyone.” —Democrat strategist Waleed Shahid

What could possibly go wrong? “Every knife sold in the UK should have a gps tracker fitted in the handle. It’s time we had a national database like we do with guns. If you’re carrying it around you had better have a bloody good explanation, obvious exemptions for fishing etc.” —UK parliamentarian Scott Mann

Braying Jenny: “What good are your thoughts & prayers when they don’t even keep the pews safe? … (‘Thoughts and prayers’ is [a] reference to the NRA’s phrase used to deflect conversation away from policy change during tragedies.)” —Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

And last… “When I say thoughts and prayers are with these folks [in New Zealand], I mean it. I mean that this is a time where we need the God of the universe to step in and to change people’s hearts.” —Rep. Adam Kinzinger
