Insight: “I believe there is a limit beyond which free speech cannot go, but it’s a limit that’s very seldom mentioned. It’s the point where free speech begins to collide with the right to privacy. I don’t think there are any other conditions to free speech. I’ve got a right to say and believe anything I please, but I haven’t got a right to press it on anybody else. … Nobody’s got a right to be a nuisance to his neighbors.” —H.L. Mencken (1880-1956)

Upright: “There is nothing so good that politicians can’t make it bad and nothing so bad that politicians can’t make it worse. Compassion is good but politicians have turned compassion into the welfare state. Crime is bad but politicians have made it worse by going easy on criminals.” —Thomas Sowell

For the record: “It was a moral absurdity. The Democrats resembled nothing so much as a bunch of corgis attempting to schtup a basketball while going after William Barr.” —Ben Shapiro on the behavior of House Judiciary Democrats

The bottom line: “This was not a hearing. This was a cancellation. They just wanted to cancel Bill Barr. They were not interested in hearing or listening to anything he had to say.” —Fox News’s Jesse Watters

Non compos mentis: “When you … brought your top staff, you brought no black people. That, sir, is systemic racism.” —Rep. Cedric Richmond to William Barr

Someone install the “Find My Candidate” app: “Good afternoon everyone. Welcome to Kingswood Community Center. Actually, that’s the one down where I used to work. That’s a joke. I didn’t know where we were.” —Joe Biden

The BIG Lie: “[Trump’s ads are] all about trying to come up with a bizarre ‘law and order’ 2020 campaign thing to try to scare the devil out of the American people.” —Joe Biden

And last… “A great clue that Trump is not a fascist dictator is that you all have been able to call him a fascist dictator for 4 years with impunity.” —Allie Beth Stuckey
