Famous quotes containing the words government and/or jim:

    America has made no reparation to the Vietnamese, nothing. We are the richest people in the world and they are among the poorest. We savaged them, though they had never hurt us, and we cannot find it in our hearts, our honor, to give them help—because the government of Vietnam is Communist. And perhaps because they won.
    Martha Gellhorn (b. 1908)

    Just kids! That’s about the craziest argument I’ve ever heard. Every criminal in the world was a kid once. What does it prove?
    —Theodore Simonson. Irvin S. Yeaworth, Jr.. Jim Bird, The Blob, responding to the suggestion that they not lock up the teens pulling the alien “prank,” (1958)
