In Context: Protecting the sunshine with our clocks

In 2007, Rep. Bill Sali of Idaho gave a speech on the House floor in which he suggested an “Obesity Reduction and Health Promotion Act” proposing “that the force of gravity by the force of Congress be reduced by 10 percent.”

He didn't introduce the bill, but he was making a point about the futility of defying natural law even as some in Congress sometime seem to think, as he put it, “The force of Congress can be brought to bear and justified to suspend those natural laws which would otherwise control important matters.”

Congress has never managed to change the law of gravity, but it is trying to change when the sun rises and sets.
