JFK arguing with his NASA administrator and space advisor over whether the US should be devoted to the overriding priority of going to the moon by 1970. Wow. A really quite incredible discussion:

"The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others."
-Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia Query XVII, 1783

" we are not afraid to follow truth wherever it may lead, nor to tolerate any error so long as reason is left free to combat it." -Thomas Jefferson, 1820
