Practice Muslim

Was Sen. Barack Obama a Muslim? Did he ever practice Islam?

- Aaron Klein

I Think Two-Thirds

I think Michelle Obama is on the right track with her Let's Move campaign to bring down childhood obesity. She and I come from the same state, Illinois, which is number four in the nation for obese children. One out of five Illinois children are considered obese. Not overweight, obese. And two-thirds of Americans are either overweight or obese.

Your About

We lost our minds in the '80s and '90s; we really as a society just felt that everyone could only care about themselves. There was no responsibility to discuss what's going on in your town, your state, your nation. And it was a blast, it was really fun, but it doesn't work.

- Adam McKay

Country Identify

America is a country that prides itself on being able to identify a 'straight shooter' or 'the genuine article' when it comes to our leaders. As a nation, we can 'feel it in our gut' when someone is giving us a bum steer.

- Adam McKay

Legacy Steak

There's no way that I could have known about a 72-oz. steak challenge in Amarillo unless thousands upon thousands of locals and travellers alike had attempted it. I guess if 'Man V Food' is me paying homage to these legends, then I suppose 'Man V Food Nation' is the legacy.

Music Tragedy

A nation that has no music and no fairytales is a tragedy.

- Ai Weiwei

Sportsmen Endlessly

Historically, China is not a nation of sportsmen. We traditionally put more emphasis on being close to nature than pushing endlessly to excel. A philosophy that values tranquil contemplation of the landscape cannot easily be adapted to the Olympic slogan of 'higher, stronger, faster.'

- Ai Weiwei

Patriotism Soldiers

America's fighting men and women sacrifice much to ensure that our great nation stays free. We owe a debt of gratitude to the soldiers that have paid the ultimate price for this cause, as well as for those who are blessed enough to return from the battlefield unscathed.

- Allen Boyd

Excellence Country

Our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen volunteer to protect and defend this country and all its citizens, and do so with honor, integrity and excellence. Our nation continually asks them to do more and more, with less and less.

- Allen West

Fact Obama

In Obama's case, we've enabled affirmative action to find a home in the nation's highest office. There you have it. I said it and I stand by it. America fell for the gimmick candidate, disregarding every fact and warning sign in the rush to have 'the first African-American president.'

- Allen West

Dream Hatred

The basic dream of many Colombians is to have a secure nation, without exclusions, with equity, and without hatred.

Some Confront

This is the 21st century, and we would all like to think racism is dead in America.

- Alveda King

Unborn Trump

Under President Trump, our nation is going to make great strides toward protecting the unborn. Priests for Life is in the vanguard of the fight for life, and having the president with us, rather than against us, will make all the difference.

- Alveda King

Ourselves Out

We must search out totally new ways to anchor ourselves, for all the old roots religion, nation, community, family, or profession are now shaking under the hurricane impact of the accelerative thrust.

Back Generations

Our nation is built upon a history of immigration, dating back to our first pioneers, the Pilgrims.

- Alan Cranston

Politics Principle

A war for a great principle ennobles a nation.

- Albert Pike

Patriotism More

One of the great attractions of patriotism - it fulfills our worst wishes. In the person of our nation we are able, vicariously, to bully and cheat. Bully and cheat, what's more, with a feeling that we are profoundly virtuous.

- Aldous Huxley

Generations

The nation is a community. Community of individuals, community of generations.

- Aleksander Kwasniewski

Past Bad

Before Frequently

All the aftermath that so frequently follows in the wake of war still confront the nation, and we now, as ever before, must hold fast to the ancient landmarks and see to it that all of these plagues that threaten so mightily shall be rendered harmless.

- Alexander Henry

Other Another

When one nation is at war with another nation, the political machine does everything it can to vilify the people of the other nation, so it makes it easier to kill them. Which is understandable and it's happened this way throughout history.

- Alexander Siddig

Country Mankind

What helped me was I had people around me to remind me to help my country even when it did me wrong, have respect for my people, my family, my nation and mankind.

Well-Being Come

I just hope Americans come to understand that food isn't something to be manipulated by our teeth and shoved down our gullet, that it's our spiritual and physical nourishment and important to our well-being as a nation.

- Alice Waters

Rather Been

If our nation is to rebuild opportunity for future generations, it will require our elected leaders to realize that their responsibility lies not with their political party, but rather with the American people that they have been chosen to represent.

- Ami Bera

Country Own

- Ami Bera

Powerful Separate

As separate people, we are weak, but we could be a peaceful, powerful nation.

- Amity Gaige

Engineers Over

China cannot pull in the best and brightest from all over the world. It's an ethnically defined nation, the opposite of an immigrant nation. You don't see a lot of American engineers trying to be Chinese citizens.

Think Hours

I don't think anyone in that Roc Nation office gets eight hours of sleep; I highly doubt it. They're constantly working, and they're on top of everything, and they have a department for everything.

- Andre Ward

Against Acceptable

The mainstream media choose to flaunt story lines that make white America appear guilty of continued institutional racism, while black racism against whites is ignored as an acceptable disposition given our nation's history.

- Andrew Breitbart

Turned On And Off

In the public eye, being a victim of past injustices does not win the right to propagate current and future ones, and that's intolerable to those in charge of the race industry today, whose power relies on maintaining forever a latent rage that can be turned on and off at the will of the nation's elites.

- Andrew Breitbart

Production Moved

America's moved so much of its production and manufacturing offshore, it's become a nation of middlemen.

- Andrew Dominik

Believe Importance

I started traveling out of curiosity, but I have come to believe in travel's political importance, that encouraging a nation's citizenry to travel may be as important as encouraging school attendance, environmental conservation, or national thrift. You cannot understand the otherness of places you have not encountered.

Color Will

'Bamboozled' is the grassroots that will enlighten Americans from all backgrounds and political affiliations to the true history of the Democrat party and the facts about what liberal policies have done to our nation and communities of color.

Woman Been

What man or woman of common sense now doubts the intellectual capacity of colored people? Who does not know, that with all our efforts as a nation to crush and annihilate the mind of this portion of our race, we have never yet been able to do it.

- Angelina Grimke

Seal Inception

Since its inception, the American nation has had on its official seal the following motto: 'e pluribus unum,' which in Latin means, 'from the many, one.' That would change dramatically if Puerto Rico were to become a state.

- Anibal Acevedo Vila

Own Almost

Nobody can doubt Puerto Rico, sociologically, linguistically, culturally, and historically, is a nation. We have our own rich culture, thousand years of history, unique territory, and almost everyone's first language is Spanish, not English.

- Anibal Acevedo Vila

Never Capitalist

India is not a capitalist nation and should never be a capitalist nation.

- Anil Agarwal

Work Traitor

Any Republican who says he can work with Hillary Clinton is a traitor to the nation.

From routine hospital visits and prescription drugs, to emergencies and hospice care, Medicare covers the full range of health services that our nation's seniors rely on every single day.

- Ann McLane Kuster

Country Obama

President Obama called for a 'we' nation in his Inauguration Address. Art convenes. It is not just inspirational. It is aspirational. It pricks the walls of our compartmentalized minds, opens our hearts and makes us brave. And that's what we need most in our country today.

- Anna Deavere Smith

Strong Descend

Liberty is a great celestial Goddess, strong, beneficent, and austere, and she can never descend upon a nation by the shouting of crowds, nor by arguments of unbridled passion, nor by the hatred of class against class.

- Annie Besant

Civilized Delicate

Britons are good, though often brutal, colonists where they come into relations with entirely uncivilized tribes whose past is so remote as to be forgotten. But they trample with their heavy boots over the sensitive, delicate susceptibilities of an ancient, highly civilized and cultured nation, such as India.

- Annie Besant

Mind Pass

Never yet was a nation born that did not begin in the spirit, pass to the heart and the mind, and then take an outer form in the world of men.

- Annie Besant

Race Which

Every person, every race, every nation, has its own particular keynote which it brings to the general chord of life and of humanity.

- Annie Besant

Over Terror

Can a democratic nation fight a War on Terror and at the same time bend over backward so as not to offend a few visitors' rights?

- Annie Jacobsen

Idea Other

The idea that Area 51 was this test facility working to move science and technology faster and further than any other nation is true and is one of the great hallmarks of Area 51. There are other areas of the base that are controversial - but they both exist simultaneously - out there in the desert.

- Annie Jacobsen

Big Very

The very best Labor governments in our nation's history distinguished themselves by thinking big and, wherever possible, resisting the temptation to overemphasise short-term political considerations.

- Anthony Albanese

Through Obama

Progressive Democratic President Barack Obama swept into power hell-bent on forcing through a makeover of our nation's healthcare system. The result was a costly new tax and failed programme, the Affordable Care Act.

- Anthony Scaramucci

Pedestal Some

The temptation in any approaching crisis or conflict is, because people haven't got a clue what lies ahead, they're always searching into the past for some sort of pattern ... to galvanise the nation or their supporters and put themselves on a pedestal to sound Churchillian or Rooseveltian.

- Antony Beevor

Pope Historic

Pope John Paul II was a man of peace, a friend of the Jewish nation... and worked for the historic reconciliation between the nations and for the renewal of diplomatic ties between Israel and the Vatican at the end of 1993.

- Ariel Sharon

Which Confronting

The American people do not care which Party solves the problems confronting our nation.

- Arlen Specter

Bring Other

Fear is a great motivator. Look at what 9-11 has accomplished - My god. It's slammed the economy, It's - I can't even begin to detail all it's actually done, other than bring down the buildings and hit the Pentagon. It's stunned the entire nation.

- Art Bell

Evidence Some

Some say Edward Snowden is a hero and a patriot. Others say he's a fool and a traitor. The evidence is mounting that the guy who leaked the details about the National Security Agency's Internet-eavesdropping program may be something more sinister - namely, a willing tool in China's ongoing cyberwar against our nation.

- Arthur L. Herman

Newspaper Itself

A good newspaper, I suppose, is a nation talking to itself.

- Arthur Miller

Been Scores

California is the highest-tax state in the nation and has been for a long time. It has the highest-paid teachers in the nation, by far - $400 a month more than New Jersey - and yet California is the third lowest state on test scores for fourth and eighth grade English and math in the nation, and has been at the low level for a long, long time.

- Arthur Laffer

Will Works

I know that my works are a credit to this nation and I dare say they will endure longer than the McCarran Act.

- Arthur Miller

Other Nations

Every nation ridicules other nations, and all are right.

- Arthur Schopenhauer

Love Mankind

Only when every one of us and every nation learns the secret of love for all mankind will the world become a great orchestra, following the beat of the Greatest Conductor of all.

- Artur Rodzinski

Father Been

I grew up in an environment with virtually no Hispanics where you see only people in your culture in custodial jobs. I had a messed up image of what we bring to this nation. My father was known as a pioneering figure in Cuban music, but I still associated him with everything that was negative in my neighborhood. I could not have been more mistaken.

- Arturo O'Farrill
