Insight: “If everyone were clothed with integrity, if every heart were just, frank, kindly, the other virtues would be well-nigh useless, since their chief purpose is to make us bear with patience the injustice of our fellows.” —Molière (1622-1673)

Upright: “If you are serious about wanting to improve education, do not vote more money for the education establishment that has been dumbing down the schools for years. Vote for vouchers, tax credits, or anything else that will transfer decision-making power to parents.” —Thomas Sowell

Observations: “We are in a virtual civil war, and the Left believes that it can win over the hearts and minds of 20 to 30 percent of the swing voters in the United States with therapeutic tales of racism, sexism, unearned white privilege, and right-wing greed and selfishness, and also by destroying the elected president.” —Victor Davis Hanson

For the record: “Planned Parenthood just announced that they will spend $45 MILLION to defeat Trump and flip the Senate in 2020. If they have that kind of money, why the hell are taxpayers subsidizing them every single year?” —Charlie Kirk

Nailed it: “So Twitter is banned in China and China is punishing the NBA for a view expressed on a platform that literally no one in China can access.” —Erick Erickson

Demo-gogues: “Donald Trump has violated his oath of office, betrayed this nation, and committed impeachable acts. To preserve our Constitution, our democracy, our basic integrity, he should be impeached.” —Joe Biden

From the Lack of Self-Awareness Department: “We all laughed when he said he could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot someone and get away with it. It’s no joke! He’s shooting holes in the Constitution and we cannot let him get away with it.” —Joe Biden

And last… “Hillary Clinton says there’s ‘no evidence’ that Joe and Hunter Biden ‘did anything wrong.’ Right — I’m sure she also saw no evidence of wrongdoing in: Selling our Uranium to Russia. Deleting 33,000 emails after a Congressional subpoena. Not protecting our embassy in Benghazi.” —Charlie Kirk
