Thoughts from the Sage .. Thomas Sowell

Given the shortage of
articulate Republican leaders, it will be a real loss — to the country,
not just to the Republicans — if Senator Marco Rubio discredits himself,
early in his career, by supporting “comprehensive” immigration reform that
amounts to just another amnesty, with false promises to secure the
border.

Edmund Burke said, “There is no
safety for honest men, but by believing all possible evil of evil men.”
Evil men do not always snarl. Some smile charmingly. Those are the most
dangerous.

If you don’t think the
mainstream media slants the news, keep track of how often they tell you
that the Arctic ice pack is shrinking and how seldom they tell you that
the Antarctic ice pack is expanding. The latter news would not fit the
“global warming” scenario that so many in the media are
promoting.

It is hard to think of two
people with more different personalities than New York’s Mayor Michael
Bloomberg and President Barack Obama. But they are soul mates when it
comes to thinking that they ought to take a whole spectrum of decisions
out of citizens’ hands, and impose the government’s decisions on
them.

Maybe the reason for the New
York Yankees’ low batting averages has something to do with the fact that
so many of their batters seem to be swinging for the fences, even when a
single would score the winning run.

 

President Obama’s denial of
knowledge about the various scandals in his administration that are
starting to come to light suggests that his titles should now include
Innocent-Bystander-in-Chief.

It has long been my belief that
the sight of a good-looking woman lowers a man’s IQ by at least 20 points.
A man who doesn’t happen to have 20 points he can spare can be in big
trouble.

Someone has referred to Vice
President Biden as President Obama’s “impeachment insurance.” Even critics
who are totally opposed to Barack Obama’s policies do not want anything to
cut short his presidency, with Joe Biden as his
successor.

People who refuse to accept
unpleasant truths have no right to complain about politicians who lie to
them. What other kind of candidates would such people
elect?
