Morals are in all countries the result of legislation and government; they are not African or Asian or European: they are good or bad.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I say statecraft is soulcraft. Just as all education is moral education because learning conditions conduct, most legislation is moral legislations because it conditions the action and the thought of the nation in broad and important spheres in life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
“I'm very committed to changing legislation to broaden the scope of women's health care but, at the same time, I want to live my life to the fullest.”More [08/16/2006 12:08:00]

Narrator: He couldn't get his judges appointed. He had trouble getting his legislation passed, and he lost Republican control of the Senate. His approval ratings in the polls began to sink. He was already beginning to look like a lame duck president. With everything going wrong, he did what any of us would do. He went... on vacation.More [10/28/2007 12:10:00]

Senator Joseph Paine:
I wish to ask my distinguished colleague, has he one scrap of evidence to add now to the defense he did not give and could not give at that same hearing?



Jefferson Smith:
I have no defense against forged papers!



Senator Joseph Paine:
The Committee ruled otherwise! The gentleman stands guilty, as charged. And I believe I speak for every member when I say that no one cares to hear what a man of his condemned character has to say about any section of any legislation before this House.



President of Senate:
Order, order, gentlemen.



Jefferson Smith:
Mr. President, I stand guilty as FRAMED! Because section 40 is graft! And I was ready to say so, I was ready to tell you that a certain man in my state, a Mr. James Taylor, wanted to put through this dam for his own profit. A man who controls a political machine! And controls everything else worth controlling in my state. Yes, and a man even powerful enough to control Congressmen - and I saw three of them in his room the day I went up to see him!



Senator Joseph Paine:
Will the Senator yield?



Jefferson Smith:
No, sir, I will not yield! And this same man, Mr. James Taylor, came down here and offered me a seat in this Senate for the next 20 years if I voted for a dam that he knew, and I knew, was a fraud. But if I dared to open my mouth against that dam, he promised to break me in two.

Nordom:
Attention, Fall-from-Grace. I wish to address your body.



Fall-from-Grace:
Pardon me?



Nordom:
Your body. Your form. Your reason for selecting it. Why?



Fall-from-Grace:
Why... I suppose I find it comforting. Besides, I rather like the wings.



Nordom:
It would be more practical for you to assume the form of a modron. It is 13.27% more efficient. Give or take +5.2%.



Fall-from-Grace:
Why, Nordom, are you trying to court me?



Nordom:
It was not my intention to initiate legislation against you.

Cap the well, yes. Clear up the mess, yes. Make compensation - yes, absolutely. But would it be right to have legislation that independently targets BP rather than other companies? I don't think that - would be right.More [09/25/2011 03:09:23]
