Tuesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Ken Langone, Joe Biden, Flora Gill, and more.

Insight: “Our own heart, and not other men’s opinions form our true honor.” —Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834)

For the record: "I don’t believe [inflation] is transitory. I don’t believe this is temporary. The fact is … if this hyperinflation happens, it will be too late to recognize. … Congress, be careful. You’re playing with fire. If you’re wrong, the little guy, the guy you say you want to help, is going to get punished severely, and that’s going to be too bad.“ —Home Depot cofounder Ken Langone

Dumb and dumber: "I used to drive an 18-wheeler, man.” —perpetual liar Joe Biden (“When pressed on the obvious lie, the White House said he rode in one, once. Not even kidding.” —Raheem J. Kassam)

Grand delusions: “There Is No Good Reason You Should Have to Be a Citizen to Vote.” —journalist Atossa Araxia Abrahamian in The New York Times

Face-palm: “Congress should increase the income tax rate on taxpayers who are unvaccinated, and who have no legitimate religious or medical reason to be unvaccinated, to 99 percent. This could be done through reconciliation.” —Vox’s Ian Millhiser (“The percent of White people who have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose (48%) was roughly 1.3 times higher than the rate for Black people (36%) and 1.2 times higher than the rate for Hispanic people (41%) as of July 19, 2021.” —Kaiser Family Foundation)

Non compos mentis: “Someone needs to create porn for children. Hear me out. Young teens are already watching porn but theyre [sic] finding hard core, aggressive videos that give a terrible view of sex. They need entry level porn! A soft core site where everyone asks for consent and no one gets choked etc.” —British journalist Flora Gill (Or we could, you know, just ban it.)

And last… “Think about this: If you’re a vaccinated American citizen not wearing a mask in the Capitol, Pelosi will have you arrested. But if you’re a COVID-positive illegal immigrant at the border? Dems welcome you and put you on a plane to an American city. Outrageous double standard.” —House Republican Whip Steve Scalise
