June quotes of the month

Ministers of state have been known to instruct us in elementary matters, such as the importance of reading stories to our children. Again, many of us have unsound views about people of other races, cultures, or religions, and the distribution of our friends does not always correspond, as governments think that it ought, to the cultural diversity of our society. We must face up to the grim fact that the rulers we elect are losing patience with us. — Kenneth Minogue (RIP) Quoted here.

A strong and perhaps unimpeachable case can be made that never in our lifetimes have so many lies, falsehoods, and misrepresentations been told by so many politicians and officials from so many levels of government to so many people on so many significant issues in such a concentrated period of time as in any random month in the last twelve. This cannot end well. — Peter Kirsanow

Thank God for confirmation bias, otherwise we’d never know when correlation is causation. — Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry

I responded in what I thought was the most truthful, or least untruthful, manner by saying ´no.” — Director of National Intelligence James Clapper explaining to Congress that his agency does not intentionally collect information on U.S.citizens.

Individual liberty yields the iPhone. Politics protects the post office. –- Jonah Goldberg
