What I’m very upset about is the attempt to dictate to museums what they show, and the statements made by politicians in Washington that have curtailed the freedom of the National Endowment for the Arts. The attention to those issues is deflected by the spin of my supposedly having trivialized the Holocaust.
Supposedly I’m impossible to talk to. But it’s honestly not me being difficult. Sometimes you just don’t have a lot to say.

I just got on Twitter because there was some MTV film blog that quoted me on something really innocuous that I supposedly said on Twitter before I was even on Twitter. So then I had to get on Twitter to say: ‘This is me. I’m on Twitter. If there’s somebody else saying that they’re me on Twitter, they’re not.’
Many of the old forms of discrimination that we supposedly left behind during the Jim Crow era are suddenly legal again, once you’ve been branded a felon.

In the Pythagorean system, thinking about numbers, or doing mathematics, was an inherently masculine task. Mathematics was associated with the gods, and with transcendence from the material world; women, by their nature, were supposedly rooted in this latter, baser realm.
Probably about 90 percent of the things that you read that supposedly came out of my mouth in regards to the Motley guys, usually most of it is incorrect. At the end of the day, I have no ill will.

I have worked out with the Thunder, Lakers, Knicks, Grizzlies, Spurs, and a few others before the draft. I have worked out primarily against shorter and supposedly faster players in these workouts.
We are placed in the genus of Homo, which is Latin for man – Homo sapiens: supposedly wise men. I sometimes think – wonder – whether we really are wise men.
It is no longer socially permissible to use race, explicitly, as a justification for discrimination, exclusion, and social contempt. So we don’t.

The American Revolution was carried out in the name of the people, and it was supposedly ‘We, the people,’ who created the government that Americans still live under.

All the things that people like me supposedly don’t do, I do.

The public doesn’t know what to believe anymore. We don’t know what stories are supposedly true, this idea of ‘fake news.’ We watch it on what I guess you would call a split-focus. It’s half entertainment and half mystery.
I think, in history, we often see a false representation of women. The men are always the successors and, supposedly, of their own merit, which I don’t believe to be to true.
It should be clear that modern fractional reserve banking is a shell game, a Ponzi scheme, a fraud in which fake warehouse receipts are issued and circulate as equivalent to the cash supposedly represented by those receipts.

I realize the voters elected President Obama in 2012, but they also, in 2014, elected enough Republican senators to gain a majority in the Senate, so we control the confirmation process. And these are two supposedly coequal branches of government involved in this filling of a Supreme Court vacancy.
You don’t hear TV cops griping because they have to enforce some Draconian law that shouldn’t be on the books in the first place, or lamenting vindictive excesses in sentencing. Hollywood, supposedly a frothing cauldron of liberalism, has always been conservative on crime.

I had fans, and the industry and everybody saying, ‘Keep the Righteous Brothers going; keep the music alive,’ and I really didn’t want to do that. I had sung with a couple of guys who would supposedly be really good Bobby Hatfields, and I thought, ‘Oh geez, it’s really anti-climatic.’
The cruel ambush of 9/11 supposedly ‘changed everything,’ slapping us back to reality. Yet we are constantly shocked, shocked by the foreseeable.

Pets are supposedly a great way to meet people.
There was supposedly no point showing ‘Nightbreed’ to critics because the people who see these movies don’t read reviews, in brackets, even if they can read at all! Immediately it was disqualified from serious criticism. Therefore, it had to be sold to the lowest common denominator.

Money is always transitively valued. More money is supposedly always better than less money.
When I’m struck by things, I want to hear more and find out more. I remember when Lana Del Rey was on ‘SNL,’ this supposedly disastrous performance. She’s doing this pretentious torch song, and I thought, ‘I don’t know what she’s doing, but it’s really moving me.’
When I was 20 years old, I was living in Ireland, going to school in Cork. There was this girl in my film class that I was kind of flirting with. We had this notebook that we passed back and forth. We would write 10 questions and then pass it back while we were supposedly paying attention.
You know, when you don’t go on TV and talk about how many women you sleep with, some people in Hollywood, that are supposedly ‘in the know,’ start whispering that you’re gay. If I were gay, I wouldn’t be ashamed to admit it, but I’m not.

Israel is a country with a thriving free press and a nation known across the world for its support of women’s and LGBT rights, not one that should face sanctions by a supposedly peace-loving world body.

In late 2004, I left my much-maligned home state of New Jersey for the supposedly greener pastures of Astoria, Queens.

A new bubble will replace the old one. A new technology will come along to fix the messes we made with the last one. In a way, that is the story of the settling of the Americas, the supposedly inexhaustible frontier to which Europeans escaped.
Hood films now are made by studios and have nothing to do with the reality they supposedly represent.
