I was a giant fan of 'Whose Line Is It Anyway' in high school, and I was obsessed with Jim Carrey and cut out any picture of Jim Carrey that ever came in any kind of magazine.

With emancipation comes the opening up of new possibilities for challenging assumptions over women's appearance and, more radically, the gender order itself.

Ventura Quotes By Christopher Ryan

Though many strive to hide their human libidinousness from themselves and each other, being a force of nature, it breaks through. Lots of uptight, proper Americans were scandalized by the way Elvis moved his hips when he sang "rock and roll." But how many realized what the phrase rock and roll meant? Cultural historian Michael Ventura, investigating the roots of African-American music, found that rock 'n' roll was a term that originated in the juke joints of the South. Long in use by the time Elvis appeared, Ventura explains the phrase "hadn't meant the name of a music, it meant 'to fuck.' 'Rock,' by itself, has pretty much meant that, in those circles, since the twenties at least." By the mid-1950s, when the phrase was becoming widely used in mainstream culture, Ventura says the disc jockeys "either didn't know what they were saying or were too sly to admit what they knew. — Christopher Ryan

Ventura Quotes By Jesse Ventura

I think a person who is disabled should be disabled by no act of their own. If you become disabled because of alcoholism, drugs, or things of that nature, I do not think those conditions qualify someone to be called disabled. I think those conditions result from personal decisions. — Jesse Ventura

Ventura Quotes By Jesse Ventura

I think that when Americans go to vote, states should not list what party the candidates are affiliated with. That would require voters to actually think and get to know a candidate instead of voting for their favorite gang. 'Oh, this guy is a Republican, so he must be good.' — Jesse Ventura

Ventura Quotes By Michael Ventura

The value of having an inner map of the world as it is (not as it's broadcast) is this: it allows you to know that your task is larger than yourself. If you choose, just by virtue of being a decent person, you are entrusted with passing on something of value through a dark, crazy time-preserving your integrity, in your way, by your acts and your very breathing for those who will build again when this chaos exhausts itself. — Michael Ventura

Ventura Quotes By Jesse Ventura

People don't like politicians. — Jesse Ventura

Ventura Quotes By Jesse Ventura

Let me say this: I'm paranoid of the government. They've lost my trust. They've lied to me so many times that I don't know what to believe from them anymore. — Jesse Ventura

Ventura Quotes By Jesse Ventura

Ventura Quotes By Jesse Ventura

We call our country home of the brave and land of the free, but it's not. We give a false portrayal of freedom. We're not free - if we were, we'd allow people their freedom. Prohibiting something doesn't make it go away. Prostitution is criminal, and bad things happen because it's run illegally by dirt-bags who are criminals. If it's legal, then the girls could have health checks, unions, benefits, anything any other worker gets, and it would be far better. — Jesse Ventura

Ventura Quotes By Chris Prentiss

Your perception of the world and the way you see yourself in it has created within your mind a concept, a philosophy, of the way you believe things to be. — Chris Prentiss

Ventura Quotes By Jesse Ventura

I believe in the America people's ability to govern themselves. If government would just get out of the way and allow them to lead their lives as they choose, they will succeed. — Jesse Ventura

There are two thoughts that will ensure success in all you do; (1) Don't tell everything you know, and (2) until Ace Ventura, no actor had considered talking through his ass. — Jim Carrey

Ventura Quotes By Jesse Ventura

How come life in prison doesn't mean life? Until it does, we're not ready to do away with the death penalty. Stop thinking in terms of "punishment" for a minute and think in terms of safeguarding innocent people from incorrigible murderers. — Jesse Ventura

Ventura Quotes By Rob Ventura

This declaration of Jesus is the central duty of the true servant of the Lord. So what does this actually mean?

Ventura Quotes By Jesse Ventura

If Waterboarding is okay, then why don't we let our police do it to criminals so they can find out what they know? Because it's against the law. If we're not going to be a country that stand's for the rule of law, when it's convenient or inconvenient, then what DO we stand for. — Jesse Ventura

Ventura Quotes By Chris Prentiss

People who are dependent are merely using alcohol as a crutch to get through the day. Yet doctors and scientists are still treating "alcoholism" as if it is the problem, when it has nothing to do with the problem. They might as well be studying "scratchism" for people who have a chronic itch. — Chris Prentiss

Ventura Quotes By Michael Ventura

It may be that it is not given to us to know when we are angels. We may only be given to know when others are. This may be one of the reasons we need each other so. — Michael Ventura

Ventura Quotes By Jesse Ventura

There's no question that we need tougher drunk-driving laws for repeat offenders. We need to take a lesson from European countries where driving isn't a right but a privilege. — Jesse Ventura

Ventura Quotes By Jesse Ventura

Anyone can run for office. When I ran for Governor of Minnesota, the only requirement was that you had to be a state resident. I believe you had to be over thirty five years old, something like that. That's the way our country was founded. That anyone can run for office. That you're not required to be a lawyer, you're not required to be anything. — Jesse Ventura

Ventura Quotes By Jesse Ventura

I will not be a Democrat or a Republican. They are the problem, not the solution. We need to abolish political parties in this country. — Jesse Ventura

Ventura Quotes By Jesse Ventura

Ventura Quotes By Jesse Ventura

Well my question is if the federal courts don't have jurisdiction over a constitutional question then who the hell does? — Jesse Ventura

Ventura Quotes By Parvesh Cheena

Ventura Quotes By Jesse Ventura

The priority of the Democrats and Republicans ... is to preserve ... power when [they have] it, and to gain power when [they do not].

Ventura Quotes By Jesse Ventura

Government is connected to everything we do. — Jesse Ventura

Ventura Quotes By Michael Ventura

To be physically astute and psychologically tended, yet morally insulated and conceptually blind
is to be crazy, not healthy. — Michael Ventura

Ventura Quotes By Jesse Ventura

My position is that it isn't government's job to mandate patriotism. To me, mandating a pledge of allegiance to a government is something Saddam Hussein would do. — Jesse Ventura

Ventura Quotes By Jesse Ventura

I tend to like to read history - recent history, because I find that much more intriguing than just a writer's imagination. — Jesse Ventura

Ventura Quotes By Jesse Ventura
