Tuesday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Stephen Kruiser, The Washington Post, Dan Pfeiffer, and more.


“You won’t get gun control by disarming law-abiding citizens. … There’s only one way to get real gun control: Disarm the thugs and the criminals, lock them up and if you don’t actually throw away the key, at least lose it for a long time… It’s a nasty truth, but those who seek to inflict harm are not fazed by gun control laws. I happen to know this from personal experience.” —Ronald Reagan (1911-2004)


“Pride Month still exists only to perpetuate the myth that gay and trans people are marginalized. Do leftists not have the internet?” —Stephen Kruiser

“If an 18-year-old isn’t ‘mature enough’ to own a firearm, then maybe 5-year-olds aren’t mature enough to change their gender.” —Kevin Sorbo

A Blind Squirrel Finds a Nut

“It was clearly unwise of President Biden to brush off rising inflation for so long and then to try to blame greedy corporations, among others, for the problem. … In hindsight, his $1.9 trillion rescue package in March 2021 was too large.” —The Washington Post editorial board

“It’s not just how do Americans feel about gun control, but how powerfully do they feel about it? … Only 36% of Americans say they are dissatisfied and want stricter gun laws. Get this: 54% say they’re either satisfied, or they’re dissatisfied and actually want less strict gun laws.” —CNN’s Harry Enten

Non Compos Mentis Award

“The right-wing media advantage — this disinformation propaganda operation — is so much more powerful now than when I worked in the White House. … If you go to Facebook on a daily basis, the posts with the most engagement are from Ben Shapiro, Dan Bongino, Candace Owens. … Ben Shapiro’s Daily Wire has more followers and engagement, many times more, than The New York Times or CNN. That is a problem for democracy.” —former Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer

And Last…

“We are facing a spiritual crisis in this country. The tribalism that is tearing us apart is due to the erosion of a spiritual foundation — a lack of recognition that we are one nation under God, that we are all God’s children — that inspires a deep respect & care for one another.” —Tulsi Gabbard
