quotes with the word "ubiquitous"
I can envision a future in which robotic devices will become a nearly ubiquitous part of our day-to-day lives.
The habit of ubiquitous interventionism, combining pinprick strikes by precision weapons with pious invocations of high principle, would lead us into endless difficulties. Interventions must be limited in number and overwhelming in their impact.

You know it's [happening in] Turkey, all these Al Jazeera reporters are being held in Egypt. The United States has prisoners in solitary. We put pressure on journalists. You see that now. It's - this is a ubiquitous issue. We don't want it to be just dismissed as the eccentricity of one authoritarian regime.
His opinions are ubiquitous on radio and television . . . and his radio program Pathway to Victory.
I am not convinced the Clean Air Act was ever intended to regulate or classify as a dangerous pollutant something as basic and ubiquitous in our atmosphere as carbon dioxide.
It's a very, very ubiquitous show . . . And it's a very iconic show. Characters are very burned into people's minds. Sometimes people can't separate that when they go to see you do something else. Sometimes people resent you for that. They pigeonhole you.
The irony is obvious . . . The same people who are building a ubiquitous surveillance system to spy on everyone in the world, including their own citizens, are now accusing the person who exposed it of 'espionage.'

Particularly in America there's a very cozy relationship between rock stars and pop stars, and I don't think that's a good relationship . . . I think everybody sort of belongs on their own side of the street for a good reason. By definition a rock star is supposed to be an independent individual who pursues a vision to an end - an Axl Rose, an Elton John. And a pop star is basically supposed to do whatever they can do to pray at some horrible idol of fame which is ubiquitous and fleeting.
The PC issue is probably more of a problem for him because of the type of celebrity he was . . . The show was so ubiquitous at one point, and it was a sitcom, so people aren't used to seeing him say outlandish things even though I'm sure he has an outlandish sensibility. He's renowned in the comedians' circle for being an outstanding comedian. I'm talking about amongst his peers - I know not everyone universally says that - but within comedy, he's outstanding. . . The reverb he hears back might be madder.
