I had an incredibly nasty retort ready that involved his mother and the U.S. Navy. ~ Rachel Hawkins
U S Navy quotes by Rachel Hawkins
I was on duty when our submarine went into port in Nassau and tied up at the Prince George Wharf, and I was the officer who accepted an invitation from the governor-general of the Bahamas for our officers and crewmen to attend an official ball to honor the U.S. Navy. There was a more private comment that a number of young ladies would be present with their chaperones. All of us were pleased and excited, and Captain Andrews responded affirmatively. We received a notice the next day that, of course, the nonwhite crewmen would not be included. When I brought this message to the captain, he had the crew assemble in the mess hall and asked for their guidance in drafting a response. After multiple expletives were censored from the message, we unanimously declined to participate. The decision by the crew of the K-1 was an indication of how equal racial treatment had been accepted - and relished. I was very proud of my ship. On leave ~ Jimmy Carter
U S Navy quotes by Jimmy Carter
He tells me of experiments his team is developing to monitor the spark of recognition in the brain as people look at online ads. The test focus on a brain wave called P300. (The U.S. Navy has run similar tests to see how pilots distinguish friends from foes in the air.) If a P300 wave heats up within a fraction of a second of a subject's seeing an ad, the Tacoda team will make the case that the viewer has not only looked at the spot but has processed it mentally. The next step? Figuring out which type of people process certain types of ads. Like other Numerati in a wide range of industries, Dave Morgan in scrutinizing humans and searching for hidden correlations. What do we do, he asks, that might predict what we'll do next? ~ Stephen Baker
U S Navy quotes by Stephen Baker
Adam Brown's zest for life led him down a few dark alleys and more than one dead end. Kind-hearted and wild, Adam led a life that lacked direction. God, a woman, and the U.S. Navy gave it to him. FEARLESS is a love story ... several love stories: a man for his woman, a warrior for his team, parents for kids, and soldiers for their country. There is no greater love than that a man lay down his life for his friends. Be warned - reading FEARLESS will change the way you see the world. ~ Stu Weber
U S Navy quotes by Stu Weber
The Galvanick Lucipher is of antique design. Ghnxh, who is about a hundred years old, can only smile in condescension at Waterhouse's U.S Navy flashlight. In the sotto voce one might use to correct an enourmous social gaffe, he explains that the galvanic lucifer is of such a superior design as to make any further reference to the Navy model a grating embarrassment for everyone concerned. ~ Neal Stephenson
U S Navy quotes by Neal Stephenson
Eight Bells: Robert J. Kane '55D died June 3, 2017, in Palm Harbor, Florida. He came to MMA by way of Boston College. Bob or "Killer," as he was affectionately known, was an independent and eccentric soul, enjoying the freedom of life. After a career at sea as an Officer in the U.S. Navy and in the Merchant Marine he retired to an adventurous single life living with his two dogs in a mobile home, which had originally been a "Yellow School Bus." He loved watching the races at Daytona, Florida, telling stories about his interesting deeds about flying groceries to exotic Caribbean Islands, and misdeeds with mysterious ladies he had known. For years he spent his summers touring Canada and his winters appreciating the more temperate weather at Fort De Soto in St. Petersburg, Florida…. Enjoying life in the shadow of the Sunshine Bridge, Bob had an artistic flare, a positive attitude and a quick sense of humor. Not having a family, few people were aware that he became crippled by a hip replacement operation gone bad at the Bay Pines VA Hospital. His condition became so bad that he could hardly get around, but he remained in good spirits until he suffered a totally debilitating stroke. For the past 6 years Bob spent his time at various Florida Assisted Living Facilities, Nursing Homes and Palliative Care Hospitals. His end came when he finally wound up as a terminal patient at the Hospice Facility in Palm Harbor, Florida. Bob was 86 years old when he passed. He will be missed…. ~ Hank Bracker
U S Navy quotes by Hank Bracker
oil companies are nationalities. This plane oughta say EXXON on the side instead of U. S. Navy ~ James W. Blinn
U S Navy quotes by James W. Blinn
I take a nap after supper and dream of the U.S. Navy, a ship anchored near a war scene, at an island, but everything is drowsy as two sailors go up the trail with fishing poles and a dog between them to go make love quietly in the hills: the captain and everybody know they're queer and rather than being infuriated however they're all drowsily enchanted by such gentle love ... (p. 119) ~ Jack Kerouac
U S Navy quotes by Jack Kerouac
Author says the ineffectual U.S. Navy of two centuries ago lost two thirds as many men to duelist bullets as to sea hazards. ~ Joseph Wheelan
U S Navy quotes by Joseph Wheelan
My mom enlisted in the U.S. Navy in World War II, and my parents actually bought our home thanks to the loan she got through the GI Bill. ~ Thomas Friedman
U S Navy quotes by Thomas Friedman
No matter what happens, the U.S. Navy is not going to be caught napping. ~ Frank Knox
U S Navy quotes by Frank Knox
Fear and hatred are the legacy of Ronald Reagan. America's vision of peace and freedom [is being] blasted by the guns of the U.S. Navy in Lebanon, the guns of U.S. paratroopers in Grenada, and the guns of U.S. helicopters in Honduras and El Salvador. ~ Alan Cranston
U S Navy quotes by Alan Cranston
What I was most curious about was why Armstrong, a top U.S. Navy test pilot, flying the most advanced aircraft in the world, would want to join the astronaut corps in 1962, which included chimpanzees and monkeys. ~ Douglas Brinkley
U S Navy quotes by Douglas Brinkley
The helicopter was a U.S. Navy helicopter. There were no civilian helicopters available to film companies, so they just made some stuff out of two-by-four wood. And I would straddle a two-by-four out from the helicopter with a camera and what we call a high hat, which is a low metal stand. ~ Haskell Wexler
U S Navy quotes by Haskell Wexler
any medium. Henry Stupen of Elco, the electric boat company, purchased PT 9 along with reproduction rights and lengthened the boat to 77 feet in order to carry the four torpedo tubes the U.S. Navy wanted. With Scott-Paine at the controls and the Rolls Royce engines purring beneath him, PT 9 won every sea trial it entered. The US Navy had their PT Boat. Three Packard marine engines replaced PT 9's Rolls Royce engines. ~ Michael Engelmann
U S Navy quotes by Michael Engelmann
Oxnard was the biggest city in Ventura County. Its unattractive name was that of a sugar beet farmer who built a processing plant in the settlement in the late nineteenth century. The city totally surrounded Port Hueneme, where there was a small U.S. Navy base. ~ Michael Connelly
U S Navy quotes by Michael Connelly
The world isn't filled with great people who are thrilled to work for you. You've got to find them and nurture their talent so they stay. It's easy to fire someone but do you have a suitable replacement? Someone who can do two-thirds of the work is better than no one doing any of the work. - Jocko Willink, retired U.S. Navy SEAL officer, ~ Jocko Willink
U S Navy quotes by Jocko Willink
Remember the philosophy of the U.S. Navy SEALs: I will never quit ... My Nation expects me to be physically harder and mentally stronger than my enemies. If knocked down, I will get back up, every time. I will draw on every remaining ounce of strength to protect my teammates ... I am never out of the fight. ~ Marcus Luttrell
U S Navy quotes by Marcus Luttrell
The Jews are one of the principle forces attempting to lead the U.S. into the war. The Jews greatest danger to this country lies in their large ownership and influence in our motion pictures, our press, our radio and our Government. I am saying that the LEADERS of the Jewish race wish to involve us in the war for reasons that are NOT AMERICAN. ~ Charles Lindbergh
U S Navy quotes by Charles Lindbergh
Whether you wish to admit it or not, when you approve, morally, of the bombing of foreign targets by the U.S. military, you are approving of acts morally equivalent to the bombing in Oklahoma City. ~ Timothy McVeigh
U S Navy quotes by Timothy McVeigh
I was part of the generation that pushed the Internet. In fact, I broke as an artist in the U.S.A. because of the Internet. ~ M.I.A.
U S Navy quotes by M.I.A.
The U.S. population, a mere four or five percent of the world total, creates half the world's toxic waste. ~ Helen Caldicott
U S Navy quotes by Helen Caldicott
At the very least, given this symbolic process and its ideological consequences, mass incarceration's racial disparities will rarely provoke a crisis of conscience for those ensconced in white dominant society. To be sure, there will be some white analysts who insist that knowledge of the disparity and the conditions of mass incarceration should generate society-wide shame and so indict a whole society for the indignity and inhumanity that U.S. prison institutions have institutionalized. ~ Mark Lewis Taylor
U S Navy quotes by Mark Lewis Taylor
Globally, as the nation-state becomes increasingly less meaningful - a provider of positive goods and more and more just an army and some domestic enforcement - people are withdrawing to shape and support more localised forms of organisation and power. To the extent that it's part of that civilised and localising world, the same is true of the U.S. ~ Rebecca Solnit
U S Navy quotes by Rebecca Solnit
We stand with Israel as a Jewish democratic state because we know that Israel is born of firmly held values that we, as Americans, share: a culture committed to justice, a land that welcomes the weary, a people devoted to tikkun olam ... So America's commitment ... and my commitment to Israel and Israel's security is unshakeable. It is unshakeable ... I am proud to say that no U.S. administration has done more in support of Israel's security than ours. None. Don't let anybody else tell you otherwise. It is a fact. ~ Barack Obama
U S Navy quotes by Barack Obama
During the debate over NAFTA President Clinton said, 'I believe that NAFTA will create a million jobs in the first five years of its impact.' WRONG. According to the Economic Policy Institute, NAFTA has led to the loss of more than 680,000 U.S. jobs. I voted against NAFTA and other bad trade agreements and am fighting to stop the TPP. ~ Bernie Sanders
U S Navy quotes by Bernie Sanders
In America access is always about architecture and never about human beings. Among Israelis and Palestinians, access was rarely about anything but people. While in the U.S. a wheelchair stands out as an explicitly separate experience from the mainstream, in the Israel and Arab worlds it is just another thing that can go wrong in a place where things go wrong all the time. ~ John Hockenberry
U S Navy quotes by John Hockenberry
You become an anti-Semite. And as powerful as the Israeli lobby is, the Saudi lobby is just as powerful. In fact, the Saudis probably have more money to throw around, and they suborn former U.S. intelligence officials, former ambassadors, former generals to support them from within by lobbying the Congress and other American institutions. ~ Michael Scheuer
U S Navy quotes by Michael Scheuer
I opposed the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996. It should be repealed and I will vote for its repeal on the Senate floor. I will also oppose any proposal to amend the U.S. Constitution to ban gays and lesbians from marrying. ~ Barack Obama
U S Navy quotes by Barack Obama
I've decided to run for the U.S. Senate because I believe Wisconsin families need a senator who will work hard to deliver results for the middle class - a leader with the courage to do what's right, no matter how tough the odds or how powerful the special interests we have to fight. ~ Tammy Baldwin
U S Navy quotes by Tammy Baldwin
I am a naturalized U.S. citizen, which means that, unlike native-born citizens, I had to prove to the U.S. government that I merited citizenship. ~ Bharati Mukherjee
U S Navy quotes by Bharati Mukherjee
Paraguay has had a U.S. supermarket boss as its ambassador for a while. He did the job well. He was there because he wanted to be there. Rather than the British diplomat who didn't want to be there. ~ John Gimlette
U S Navy quotes by John Gimlette
One of the things that struck me when I came to the U.S. was discovering American poverty. ~ Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
U S Navy quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Pakistan has accepted some security training from the CIA, but U.S. export restrictions and Pakistani suspicions have prevented the two countries from sharing the most sophisticated technology for safeguarding nuclear components. ~ Barton Gellman
U S Navy quotes by Barton Gellman
It was easy to make fun of the marines when they weren't listening. In Holden's navy days, making fun of jarheads was as natural as cussing. But four marines had died getting him off the Donnager, and three of them had made a conscious decision to do so. Holden promised himself that he'd never make fun of them again. ~ James S.A. Corey
U S Navy quotes by James S.A. Corey
Weapons systems the U.S. sold to the Shah of Iran wound up in the hands of Islamic militants who seized power there in 1979; a comparable scenario in Saudi Arabia is hardly impossible. ~ Stephen Kinzer
U S Navy quotes by Stephen Kinzer
Superfluous focus on accounting and other procedural details is preventing U.S. industry from competing with rough-and-ready rivals in Asia that can build thousands of factories and skyscrapers while the United States dithers with environmental-impact litigation, re-computation, and backup of accounting reports. ~ George Gilder
U S Navy quotes by George Gilder
Liberalism is the ideology at the center of conservative arguments against affirmative action and equal opportunity. By proposing that, all things being equal, everyone has the same opportunity to compete in the U.S. marketplace, success is determined by how hard someone works and not by their economic class, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, or race. Ethnic and racial identities are to be assimilated, lost, and erased through the celebrated "melting pot" of U.S. culture. Liberalism thus devalues the importance of communitarian experiences and social identities as determinants or barriers to individual success. Instead, it proposes that all individuals are fundamentally equal and that, regardless of their social identity, everyone can control his or her fate through hard work, learned skills, and acquired education- the foundational myth of a U.S. meritocracy. ~ Isabel Molina-Guzman
U S Navy quotes by Isabel Molina-Guzman
What the military will say to a reporter and what is said behind closed doors are two very different things - especially when it comes to the U.S. military in Africa. ~ Nick Turse
U S Navy quotes by Nick Turse
I certainly want to get back to the U.S. to play. It's such a big country. I've always liked playing there, and enjoyed living there. I lived in New York, LA, and Florida. ~ Mick Taylor
U S Navy quotes by Mick Taylor
In Britain, you never get away from the fact that you're a foreigner. In the U.S., the view is it doesn't matter where you come from. ~ Aasif Mandvi
U S Navy quotes by Aasif Mandvi
Though it is obligatory to hail our leaders for their sincere dedication to bringing democracy to a suffering world, perhaps in an excess of idealism, the more serious scholar/advocates of the mission of "democracy promotion" recognize that there is a "strong line of continuity" running through all administrations: the United States supports democracy if and only if it conforms to U.S. strategic and economic interests. ~ Noam Chomsky
U S Navy quotes by Noam Chomsky
It's a shameful moment for U.S. media when it insists on being subservient to the grotesque propaganda agencies of a violent, aggressive state. ~ Noam Chomsky
U S Navy quotes by Noam Chomsky
The U.S. was the immigration country of choice even for alien jellyfish things that turned humans into scary monsters. It made you proud, really. ~ Gini Koch
U S Navy quotes by Gini Koch
The thing that I would say is that U.S. power is not eternal. I am not saying that it won't come to an end. Because it will. ~ Robert Kagan
U S Navy quotes by Robert Kagan
One of the coolest things was that, in 2007, I got to go to Iraq with Rob Riggle, Paul Scheer, and Horatio Sanz. We went over there to do some comedy shows with the U.S.O. ~ Rob Huebel
U S Navy quotes by Rob Huebel
9/11 was a hugely overblown event that only assumed its overarching importance a) because it was done to the United States and b) because of the way the U.S. reacted. ~ Martin Jacques
U S Navy quotes by Martin Jacques
As far as U.S. tennis, we need new stars coming up in the pipeline, but I don't know if we have it. ~ Billie Jean King
U S Navy quotes by Billie Jean King
When bad things happen to men we say it's terrible, but when bad things happen to women we say that's just a cultural practice, says Lou de Baca, U.S. Ambassador at Large, Office to Combat and Monitor Human Trafficking. ~ Nita Belles
U S Navy quotes by Nita Belles
In World War II in Germany, we had a ration for one U.S. soldier, or one allied soldier for every twenty inhabitants. The ratio in Iraq is about one for a hundred and sixty. ~ William Odom
U S Navy quotes by William Odom
During World War II, Iceland was a poor country with a total population of about 120,000 people. In contrast, the occupying U.S. force consisted of roughly 40,000 men - which meant that U.S. soldiers outnumbered adult Icelandic men - at least during the height of the occupation. ~ Gudjon Bergmann
U S Navy quotes by Gudjon Bergmann
I won the 2007 U.S. Open and 2009 Masters in my late 30s, largely because of my confident driving. ~ Angel Cabrera
U S Navy quotes by Angel Cabrera
The number of people with HIV receiving Medicare benefits has grown over time, reflecting growth in the size of the of the HIV positive population in the U.S. but also an increased lifespan for people with HIV due to antiretroviral medicines and other treatment advances. ~ David Mixner
U S Navy quotes by David Mixner
It's a funny thing, in the US we all believe that we have a right to go to school. We have a right to a good education. And we don't. The U.S. Constitution contains no right for a child to go to school, let alone for a child to go to a good school. And yet, we know that if they don't go to a good school, they're less likely to be able to realize all that this country has to offer. ~ Benjamin Jealous
