A paper towel moment

The Puerto Rico hurricane keeps bringing images of Orange Jesus throwing paper towels when he was prez. I bet those poor residents will be missing his antics.

I always thought that Trump's tossing of paper towels was, by itself, no big thing. It was his overall refusal to help Puerto Rico in the way that it needed and his reported racism that was at issue.

I thought it was a harbinger of his shallowness, and thoughtlessness, there depths yet to be revealed.

(Yes, I know.)

I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

He was less shallow and thoughtless than purposeful and designing.

He thought he could sell his brand of racism and intolerance on a national stage, a skill he'd honed during his NYC developer days. He was correct in that belief.

Nothing shallow or thoughtless about it.
