Corporate America quotes by Joe Jamail

Corporate America quotes by Roseanne Barr

Corporate America quotes by Nolan Bushnell
#5. It is time for corporate America to become 'the third pillar' of social change in our society, complementing the first two pillars of government and philanthropy.

Corporate America quotes by Simon Mainwaring
#6. I am very glad, Anderson, that secretary Clinton discovered religion on this issue but it's a little bit too late. Secretary Clinton supported virtually every one of the disastrous trade agreements written by corporate America. - Author: Bernie Sanders
Corporate America quotes by Bernie Sanders
#7. I expected, as I approached the corporate world, to enter a brisk, logical, nonsense-free zone, almost like the military - or a disciplined, up-to-date military anyway - in its focus on concrete results. How else would companies survive fierce competition? But what I encountered was a culture riven with assumptions unrelated to those that underlie the fact- and logic-based worlds of, say science and journalism - a culture addicted to untested habits, paralyzed by conformity, and shot through with magical thinking. - Author: Barbara Ehrenreich
Corporate America quotes by Barbara Ehrenreich
#8. Branding jails corporate America, but honesty sets entrepreneurs free. - Author: James Altucher
Corporate America quotes by James Altucher

Corporate America quotes by Boomer Esiason

Corporate America quotes by Henry Kravis
#11. Keep in mind that Eric Alterman is media critic for The Nation-a hysterically left-wing magazine dedicated to the proposition that corporate America, U.S. foreign policy and the Republican Party are criminal, racist or both. The simple reality is that, for him, the Democratic Party is far too conservative. - Author: Jonah Goldberg
Corporate America quotes by Jonah Goldberg
#12. Black anti-semitism is a form of underdog resentment and envy, directed at another underdog who has made it in American society. The remarkable upward mobility of American Jews--rooted chiefly in a history and culture that places a premium on higher education and self-organization--easily lends itself to myths of Jewish unity and homogeneity that have gained currency among other groups, especially among relatively unorganized groups like black Americans. The high visibility of Jews in the upper reaches of the academy, journalism, the entertainment industry, and the professions--though less so percentage-wise in corporate America and national political office--is viewed less as a result of hard work and success fairly won and more as a matter of favoritism and nepotism among Jews. Ironically, calls for black solidarity and achievement are often modeled on myths of Jewish unity--as both groups respond to American xenophobia and racism. But in times such as these, some blacks view Jews as obstacles rather than allies in the struggle for racial justice. - Author: Cornel West
Corporate America quotes by Cornel West
#13. Corporate America is a 20th-century dinosaur, trembling on the edge of extinction, and the only way for you to have a genuinely secure future is for you to take control of that future. - Author: Robert Kiyosaki
Corporate America quotes by Robert Kiyosaki
#14. The constitution has broken down. We have no enemies except the ones we select and direct towards the nearest nuclear bombs. They need an enemy to provoke, a diversion. This is the mentality of tenth-rate people who are in politics because corporate America likes them. They are malleable. They give them contracts to build missile shields that will never work. It's deeply corrupt. - Author: Gore Vidal
Corporate America quotes by Gore Vidal
#15. I've always been business-minded. I worked in corporate America before becoming an actress and knew that acting wasn't the end but a means to an end. It gave me the platform and the exposure I needed to do my philanthropic work. It also gave me the financial security to focus on my other businesses, start new businesses, and even help other people start businesses. - Author: Eva Longoria
Corporate America quotes by Eva Longoria
#16. Competition is the hallmark of a free enterprise economy. For the past thirty years, however, corporate America has been doing everything it can to cut competition, with major corporations merging and consolidating at every opportunity. - Author: Lou Dobbs
Corporate America quotes by Lou Dobbs
#17. When you see the misogyny of hip-hop, it's so horrible, it's so putrid, it's so, you know, odious, that we know, we smell, we see it. The misogyny that is reified, that is reinforced, that is subtly reproduced in corporate America or in church life or in synagogues and temples and the like, is sometimes more subtly dealt with. - Author: Michael Eric Dyson
Corporate America quotes by Michael Eric Dyson
#18. By the accusation of liberal bias ... the institutions that conservatives revere - the military, corporate America, organized religion, and the powerful conservative groups themselves - will be able to escape scrutiny and increase their influence. - Author: Eric Alterman
Corporate America quotes by Eric Alterman
#19. So when I say that I think we would have a different ethical level, particularly in corporate America, if there were more women involved, I mean that what women are best at is asking questions. Women ask questions over and over again. It drives men nuts. Women tend to ask the detailed questions; they want to know the answers. - Author: Vicki Donlan
Corporate America quotes by Vicki Donlan
#20. During our long period of slumber the United States government has lost its moral authority. It is owned, operated, and controlled by Wall Street and Corporate America. The United States has become ungovernable, unfixable, and, therefore, unsustainable economically, politically, militarily, and environmentally. It has evolved into the wealthiest, most powerful, most materialistic, most racist, most militaristic, most violent empire of all times. - Author: Thomas Naylor
Corporate America quotes by Thomas Naylor
#21. I don't want corporate America to think they can continue their duplicitous double-dealing. - Author: Joe Jamail
Corporate America quotes by Joe Jamail
#22. I like to bring people together so we don't waste opportunities and resources and keep doing the wrong things when we know better. Corporate America makes great things and things that can hurt us. They have to be part of the solutions. There's nothing to say you don't make a profit by doing good. - Author: Teresa Heinz
Corporate America quotes by Teresa Heinz
#23. The LPGA is basically corporate America's dinner party, and they can invite whomever they want. They're not ready for people getting up and making declarations. The bottom line is corporate America is pretty homophobic. - Author: Hollis Stacy
Corporate America quotes by Hollis Stacy

Corporate America quotes by Mark Steyn
#28. There's no tipping point where you become what you are. Character development starts when you're growing up. Your socioeconomic background contributes. The attitude that gets you through some communities doesn't work in corporate America. It's not an excuse, but it does help explain - Author: Maurice Clarett
Corporate America quotes by Maurice Clarett
#29. If you look at our records, I stood up to corporate America time and time again. I went to Mexico. I saw the lives of people who were working in American factories and making $0.25 an hour. - Author: Bernie Sanders
Corporate America quotes by Bernie Sanders
#30. Corporate America doesn't really have an interest in Formula One because there is nothing American in it at this point. It is European and all made by Europeans. Until that changes, the interest isn't going to be at the level it needs to be. - Author: Alexander Rossi
Corporate America quotes by Alexander Rossi

#34. When I was a kid, my goodness, corporate America was a bunch of stolid white guys in gray suits trying to be serious, and now it's stolid white guys in gray suits trying to be funny. - Author: Emo Philips
Corporate America quotes by Emo Philips
#35. There's a bias on hiring the best engineers wherever they come from. It does seem like a lot of the non-engineering execs come from Ivy League schools, as is true in much of corporate America and government. - Author: Ken Auletta
Corporate America quotes by Ken Auletta
#36. I think the church has done a pretty good job at reaching the "down and outers" but not a good job at reaching the "up and outers." I feel like one of my mandates is to reach corporate America with a message that relates to them. As an avid reader, I realized that the church at large was not speaking the language of corporate America or strategically to the needs of a corporate man/woman. - Author: Keith Craft
Corporate America quotes by Keith Craft
#37. Corporate America cannot afford to remain silent or passive about the downward spiral we are undergoing. It cannot turn a blind eye to how difficult the experience of life is for so many of their customers. - Author: Simon Mainwaring
Corporate America quotes by Simon Mainwaring
#38. There is no tougher job in corporate America than running an airline: Despite the huge amounts of equity capital that have been injected into it, the industry, in aggregate, has posted a net loss since its birth after Kitty Hawk. Airline managers need brains, guts, and experience - and - Author: Warren Buffett
Corporate America quotes by Warren Buffett
#39. Women became 50 percent of the college graduates in the United States in the early 1980s.5 Since then, women have slowly and steadily advanced, earning more and more of the college degrees, taking more of the entry-level jobs, and entering more fields previously dominated by men. Despite these gains, the percentage of women at the top of corporate America has barely budged over the past decade.6 A meager twenty-three of the S&P 500 CEOs are women.7 Women hold about 25 percent of senior executive positions, 19 percent of board seats, and constitute 19 percent of our elected congressional officials.8 - Author: Sheryl Sandberg
Corporate America quotes by Sheryl Sandberg
#40. Corporate America was hurling offers at her. Thinking even bigger, wanting even more, she had dreams of starting a Martha Stewart magazine and starring in her own regularly scheduled Martha Stewart television show. Martha saw herself as Betty Crocker, Julia Child, Miss Manners, Emily Post, and Rupert Murdoch all rolled into one juicy pie. - Author: Jerry Oppenheimer
Corporate America quotes by Jerry Oppenheimer
#41. Like the stocks of both Berkshire and Wesco to trade within hailing distance of what we think of as intrinsic value. When it runs up, we try to talk it down. That's not at all common in Corporate America, but that's the way we act. - Author: Charlie Munger
Corporate America quotes by Charlie Munger
#42. Unfortunately there is a standard set for it that precedes hip-hop. It would be great if corporate America didn't do this, but there is a huge market for sex and violence and anti-Black representations in America and the world that doesn't begin or end with hip-hop. - Author: Bakari Kitwana
Corporate America quotes by Bakari Kitwana
#43. I am very excited and delighted to be an important part of the development of corporate America. - Author: Irene Rosenfeld
Corporate America quotes by Irene Rosenfeld

Corporate America quotes by Henry Kravis
#46. Pulling the plug on the BlackBerry could cost corporate America millions of dollars. The BlackBerry is more than e-mail but a handheld office, and if you shut down the BlackBerry, you shut off the data that powers American business. - Author: Al Smith
Corporate America quotes by Al Smith
#47. I have been tested. I have beaten breast cancer. I have buried a child. I started as a secretary. I fought my way to the top of corporate America while being called every B word in the book. I fought my way into this election and on to this debate stage while all the political insiders and the pundits told, "it couldn't be done." - Author: Carly Fiorina
Corporate America quotes by Carly Fiorina
#48. You know, I never fight for corporate America. - Author: Aubrey O'Day
Corporate America quotes by Aubrey O'Day
#49. Corporate greed controls political will. - Author: Aaron B. Powell
Corporate America quotes by Aaron B. Powell
#50. With so many part-time people on - and not on - the job, corporate America has started to feel like it's on a permanent maternity leave. Colleagues are an amorphous, free-floating army of rotating waifs whose voicemails are clogged with plaintive requests from their own offices for missing information. - Author: Tina Brown
Corporate America quotes by Tina Brown
#51. The corporate system is interconnected and now share a common invested interest, the ability to control through business, the people. It is an inevitable path the parameters set will take the beast down following the easiest way to collective profits, to control the ones that provide them. It is also logical to protect your own, from ones that are shedding light through Art on the grey water they may have stepped into to reach their fullest profit potentials. It is the logical solution to what would be, just business. So the Matrix story albeit written to lift for all the ceiling of what is possible, has inevitably shined a light on the entire path that was chosen and the pre-chosen road ahead that collective corporations were on creating a separate state of politically connected elite and those seeking award through serving them. A natural progression of what was set in place from the beginning. The flaw was in the design of the collective corporate system, globally intertwined now, and immersed in politics, protecting its own, making the question real this time, how to balance the equation. - Author: Tom Althouse
Corporate America quotes by Tom Althouse
#52. When Corporate America finds a Jayson Blair in its midst, the standard operating procedure is to circle the wagons and deny that any form of liability extends up the chain of command. - Author: Gary Weiss
Corporate America quotes by Gary Weiss
#53. Everyone knows that children and teens want to blend in and follow the crowd. And from whom do they learn this lesson? Adults, of course. Let's face it: Americans follow the herd. If you want to be successful, we are told in myriad ways, conformity is the way to go. Look at corporate America, with its "team player" ethic and all the strict rules delineating what you can and cannot wear on Casual Fridays. Consider the cycles of women's fashion, which dictate when square-toed, chunky-heeled shoes are out and when pointy-toed, ankle-straining stilettos are in. And what about best-seller lists and electoral horse-race polls and movie box-office postings? Everyone wants to know what everyone else is reading and seeing and thinking--so that they can go out and read and see and think the very same things themselves.

If adults possess this tendency to efface themselves in this way, teenagers have it magnified to the thousandth degree. But studying and following the fashions of the times are not enough; teens also feel a need to be associated with fashionable people--the popular people. Their goal is to crack the glass ceiling that separates mere mortals from the "in" crowd. If they are unsuccessful, and most are, they console themselves with a clique of their own. Even an unpopular clique is, the thinking goes, is better than no clique at all. - Author: Leora Tanenbaum
Corporate America quotes by Leora Tanenbaum
#54. I still play in corporate America. I protect the suits that want flashy muscle. Something exotic to impress
their friends about what a big shot they are."
"You do the knife act on command?" I asked.
He shrugged. "Sometimes."
"I hope it pays well," I said.
He smiled. "It either pays well or I don't do it. I may be their token Indian but I'm a rich token Indian. - Author: Laurell K. Hamilton
Corporate America quotes by Laurell K. Hamilton
#55. We have bloated bureaucracies in Corporate America. The root of the problem is the absence of real corporate democracy. - Author: Carl Icahn
Corporate America quotes by Carl Icahn
#56. The problem of race is deep and wide and requires seismic change. But if we look to government to solve it, we might as well feel hopeless. If we look corporate America to solve it, we'll be waiting a long, long time. And if we agree with Ta-Nehisi Coates, who tentatively suggests that "the only work that will matter, will be the work done by us," then we will truly despair, for we know how well that has worked. If we follow that track, we'll quickly add in disbelief, as he did, "Or perhaps not."

As I've said, the problem of race is not "out there." It's "in here," in the human heart. And though there is no task in heaven or on earth more difficult than changing the human heart,I believe in the one who can do it. It requires a supernatural solution.

Yes, I believe in God. You see, I know how God can change a person's heart. - Author: Benjamin Watson
Corporate America quotes by Benjamin Watson
#57. I didn't appreciate, coming out of corporate America ... what it meant to a founder, the creator of the Macintosh, to be asked to step down from the very division that he created to lead the very product that he believed was going to change the world. - Author: John Sculley
Corporate America quotes by John Sculley
#58. The government regulates them, or chooses not to, approves or blocks their mergers and acquisitions, and sets their tax policies (often turning a blind eye to the billions parked in offshore tax havens). This is why tech companies, like the rest of corporate America, inundate Washington with lobbyists and quietly pour hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions into the political system. Now they're gaining the wherewithal to fine-tune our political behavior - and with it the shape of American government - just by tweaking their algorithms. - Author: Cathy O'Neil
Corporate America quotes by Cathy O'Neil
#59. I believe that if corporate America expects consumer confidence to be restored, they must first be honest with us. - Author: Bennie Thompson
Corporate America quotes by Bennie Thompson
#60. Astute social commentators had been anticipating this rightward shift since the early 1980s. Bertram Gross predicted, in his book Friendly Fascism, that the United States might arrive at a gentler form of the virulent ultranationalism, antilabor activity, and racism, which coalesced into fascism in Europe in the 1930s. Corporate America would tolerate such a rightward drift, so the argument went, because more government restrictions on personal freedom would enhance business efforts to discipline the labor force and increase corporate profits. - Author: Steve Brouwer
Corporate America quotes by Steve Brouwer
#61. Staying quiet and fitting in may have been all the first generations of women who entered corporate America could do; in some cases, it might still be the safest path. But this strategy is not paying off for women as a group. Instead, we need to speak out, identify the barriers that are holding women back, and find solutions. - Author: Sheryl Sandberg
Corporate America quotes by Sheryl Sandberg
#62. With our technology, with objects, literally three people in a garage can blow away what 200 people at Microsoft can do. Literally can blow it away. Corporate America has a need that is so huge and can save them so much money, or make them so much money, or cost them so much money if they miss it, that they are going to fuel the object revolution. - Author: Steve Jobs
Corporate America quotes by Steve Jobs
#63. I'm very, very worried about the invasion of privacy rights that we're seeing not only from the N.S.A. and the government but from corporate America, as well. We're losing our privacy rights. It's a huge issue. - Author: Bernie Sanders
Corporate America quotes by Bernie Sanders
#64. I'd done my time in corporate America, from McDonald's making shakes to Morgan Stanley making deals and, yet, I felt awfully constrained by the uniform - not just my clothes, but how I felt I needed to conform - that a traditional job required me to wear. - Author: Chip Conley
Corporate America quotes by Chip Conley
#65. Disparities in economic standing drive radical differences in Americans' values, causing a pronounced and antagonistic political ideologically. Americans are progressively viewing members of the domestic opposition party as the greatest threat to their wellbeing. Instead of fearing a war overseas, Americans are increasing distrustful of other Americans. A great American cultural war between the rich and poor is inevitable, unless corporate America and its wealthiest citizens voluntary commence accepting a larger load of taxation and the government implements dramatic steps to shore up the disparity that continues to widen between the people on contrasting economic poles. - Author: Kilroy J. Oldster
Corporate America quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#66. The tagline behind "House of Lies" is funny, dirty, business. The show is a comedy satire about how big business operates. Most Americans that work in corporate America should be able to relate to this show. - Author: Larenz Tate
Corporate America quotes by Larenz Tate
#67. Now, on the other hand, if we booted all the men out of corporate America, and we had all women there, quite honestly I think they'd be just as corrupt as what we have right now. I think it's best to have diversity and different points of view. - Author: Vicki Donlan
Corporate America quotes by Vicki Donlan
#68. If we can just take a few companies, and use those as models, as examples, to show the rest of corporate America how they can become more competitive, that's what I'd like to do and that's what I hope to do. - Author: Henry Kravis
Corporate America quotes by Henry Kravis
#69. The existence of the corporation, as we have it with us today, was never dreamed of by the fathers . . .The corporation of today has invaded every department of business, and it's powerful but invisible hand is felt in almost all activities of life . . . The effect of this change upon the American people is radical and rapid.

The individual is fast disappearing as a business factor and in his stead is this new device, the modern corporation . . . The influence of this change upon character cannot be overestimated. The businessman at one time gave his individuality, stamped his mental and moral characteristics upon the business he conducted . . .

Today the business once transacted by individuals in every community is in the control of corporations, and many of the men who once conducted an independent business are gathered into the organization, and all personal identity, and all individualities lost. - Author: Robert Marion La Follette
Corporate America quotes by Robert Marion La Follette
#70. -- it's rapidly turning into an us versus them scenario. And it's all but assured that someone is going to fall into the mass graves that corporate America is digging. - Author: Emmanuel Goldstein
Corporate America quotes by Emmanuel Goldstein
#71. And the reason that I was one of the first, not one of the last to be in opposition to the TPP is that American workers should not be forced to compete against people in Vietnam today making a minimum wage of $0.65 an hour. Look, what we have got to do is tell corporate America that they cannot continue to shut down. We've lost 60,000 factories since 2001. They're going to start having to, if I'm president, invest in this country - not in China, not in Mexico. - Author: Bernie Sanders
Corporate America quotes by Bernie Sanders
#72. Among the tastemakers and power brokers and intellectual agenda setters of late-twentieth-century America, orthodox Christianity was completely déclassé. - Author: Ross Douthat
Corporate America quotes by Ross Douthat
#73. The majority does not rule in America, but the minority shouldn't hijack it. And it's because we're afraid. They have isolated us and made us feel as though we're alone. We're not. - Author: Glenn Beck
Corporate America quotes by Glenn Beck
#74. Only people have incomes and they derive them through the market from the resources they own, whether these be in the form of corporate stock, or of bonds, or of land, or of their personal capacity. - Author: Milton Friedman
Corporate America quotes by Milton Friedman
#75. On the other hand in America, in the Republic, one has to spend the whole weary day paying serious court to the shopkeepers in the street, and must become as stupid as they are; and there, one has no Opera. - Author: Stendhal
Corporate America quotes by Stendhal
#76. The old legends of America belong quite as much to the blue-eyed little patriot as to the black-haired aborigine. And when they are grown tall like the wise grown-ups may they not lack interest in a further study of Indian folklore, a study which so strongly suggests our near kinship with the rest of humanity and points a steady finger toward the great brotherhood of mankind, and by which one is so forcibly impressed with the possible earnestness of life as seen through the teepee door! If it be true that much lies "in the eye of the beholder," then in the American aborigine as in any other race, sincerity of belief, though it were based upon mere optical illusion, demands a little respect.

After all he seems at heart much like other peoples. - Author: Zitkala-Sa
Corporate America quotes by Zitkala-Sa
#77. For the most ambitious young people, the corporate ladder is obsolete. - Author: Paul Graham
Corporate America quotes by Paul Graham
#78. Lefty, who'd been observing all the ways Greece had been handed down to America, arrived now at where the transmission stopped. In other words: the future. He stepped off to meet it. Desdemona, having no alternative, followed. - Author: Jeffrey Eugenides
Corporate America quotes by Jeffrey Eugenides
#79. One of the reasons churches in North America have trouble guiding people about money is that the church's economy is built on consumerism. If churches see themselves as suppliers of religious goods and services and their congregants as consumers, then offerings are 'payment.' - Author: Doug Pagitt
Corporate America quotes by Doug Pagitt
#80. Modern corporate governments have silently declared war on their mass populations biology. - Author: Steven Magee
Corporate America quotes by Steven Magee
#81. The whole scale and scope of the decorating and fashion business in this country are incomparably grander than in London. What's thrilling about America in general, and the New York fashion scene in particular, is its optimism. It makes the whole experience energizing and uplifting. - Author: Hamish Bowles
Corporate America quotes by Hamish Bowles
#82. Now for good or ill, California is the place where trends tend to be set in Western civilization - if civilization indeed it is. California, for several generations now, has been the newest, biggest, most experimental place in the newest, biggest, most experimental part of liberal Western capitalism - which is itself a new experiment for mankind. - Author: P. J. O'Rourke
Corporate America quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#83. Women in America read 'lifestyle' pages which are really glorifications of shopping. They teach us we must veil ourselves in make-up to be loved. And we willingly take the veil, thinking ourselves freed by it. Make-up is no more optional for us than the veil is for Arab women: it is our Western version of the chador. - Author: Erica Jong
Corporate America quotes by Erica Jong
#84. I know jazz is completely un-American. But the reason why America doesn't like it is because it's not funny. We [americans] have made jazz funny. - Author: Paul Provenza
Corporate America quotes by Paul Provenza
#85. We did not hesitate to call our movement an army. But it was a special army, with no supplies but its sincerity, no uniform but its determination, no arsenal except its faith, no currency but its conscience. - Author: Martin Luther King, Jr.
Corporate America quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#86. In the months and years after 9/11 it appeared likewise as if things had returned to some state of normalcy. As time passed, as the initial shock wore off and the trauma lessened, there was a growing temptation to go on almost as if it had never happened, as if the nation were still somehow immune to destruction. So it was in the last days of ancient Israel. But it was all an illusion." There was a long silence after that ... broken only by the sound of the seagulls. Then he continued as if there had been no break. "It was all a fatal illusion. So then ... what of America? - Author: Jonathan Cahn
Corporate America quotes by Jonathan Cahn
#87. I assume the president's going to say he got bad intelligence ... I think that wherever you see poverty, whether it's in the white rural community or the black urban community, you see that the resources have been sucked up into the war and tax cuts for the rich. - Author: Charles Rangel
Corporate America quotes by Charles Rangel
#88. And always America is the place of the deathless and enraptured moments, the eye that looked, the mouth that smiled and vanished, and the word; the stone, the leaf, the door we never found and never have forgotten. And these are the things that we remember of America, for we have known all her thousand lights and weathers, and we walk the streets, we walk the streets forever, we walk the streets of life alone. - Author: Thomas Wolfe
Corporate America quotes by Thomas Wolfe
#89. I will never forget the debt we owe to those who have fought to keep America safe. - Author: Tom Udall
Corporate America quotes by Tom Udall
#90. The U.S. should stop garrisoning the globe, subsidizing rich friends, and reconstructing poor enemies. Instead, it's about time Washington focused on defending America and its people. - Author: Doug Bandow
Corporate America quotes by Doug Bandow
#91. Perhaps ten percent of men, in modern day America; would do anything that was legal . . . And I mean "Anything". However, the number of Americans that would tolerate that behavior from their friends, family members, business partners, etc. is the real dilemma. What do you do, when half the country looks the other way and ignores the greatest of evils? - Author: Travis Suvil
Corporate America quotes by Travis Suvil
#92. We won't be different for different's sake. Different is easy ... make it pink and fluffy! Better is harder. Making something different often has a marketing and corporate agenda. - Author: Jonathan Ive
Corporate America quotes by Jonathan Ive
#93. The rich people are apparently leaving America. They're giving up their citizenship. These great lovers of America who made their money in this country-when you ask them to pay their fair share of taxes they run abroad. We have 19-year old kids who lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan defending this country. They went abroad. Not to escape taxes. They're working class kids who died in wars and now billionaires want to run abroad to avoid paying their fair share of taxes. What patriotism! What love of country! - Author: Bernie Sanders
Corporate America quotes by Bernie Sanders
#94. In America you make your plans and then they happen. - Author: Nell Freudenberger
Corporate America quotes by Nell Freudenberger
#95. I can't be calm when I drive through sections of Atlanta that look more like Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, than America. - Author: Cynthia McKinney
Corporate America quotes by Cynthia McKinney

Corporate America quotes by Mitt Romney

Corporate America quotes by Jamie Sives
#98. It is the Morocco of America, the New Orleans of the north. - Author: Michael Cunningham
Corporate America quotes by Michael Cunningham
#99. I love lamb shank. It's my favorite thing. You don't have it in America. It's a younger meat - it just falls off the bone - it's kind of like a roast. I really like blackened cod too. - Author: Natasha Bedingfield
Corporate America quotes by Natasha Bedingfield
#100. The public education movement has also been an anti-Christian movement ... We can change education in America if you put Christian principles in and Christian pedagogy in. In three years, you would totally revolutionize education in America. - Author: Pat Robertson

#101. In America, we know to ignore artists if they're serious in any way. - Author: Stephen Colbert
Corporate America quotes by Stephen Colbert
#102. Looking across this field, we see the scale of heroism and sacrifice. All who are buried here understood their duty. All stood to protect America. And all carried with them memories of a family that they hoped to keep safe by their sacrifice. - Author: George W. Bush
Corporate America quotes by George W. Bush
#103. People often ask me why I believe still. I ask myself that too. Why do I still go to church through all of this? Why do any of us? If faith is changing and dying, why do we still participate? Why do 70 percent of Americans still profess to be Christian? Even more still believe in God.

I imagine it's the same reason why people in Middle America don't just move. In these small towns, where loss has eviscerated them and their communities, they stay. Because this place is part of their identity - this land that gives and destroys, that creates and breaks. - Author: Lyz Lenz

#104. I've noticed that 'news' is not what's happened. It's what's happened on camera. If a herd of tigers runs amok in a remote Indian village, it's not news. If a gang of wide-eyed rebels slaughters the inhabitants of a faraway African village, it's not news. But if it's a bit windy in America, it is news. Because in America everything that happens is recorded. I find myself wondering if last week's Israeli raid on a Turkish ship in a flotilla carrying aid to Gaza would have had the coverage it did if the battle hadn't been captured on film. And likewise the racing driver who broke a leg after crashing in the Indy 500. It only became a big deal because we could watch the accident from several angles in slow motion. - Author: Jeremy Clarkson
