Barack Obama transferred from Occidental College to Columbia University in 1981, his junior year. Although he left Los Angeles with enough ambitious propulsion to carry him into a more active period, he instead receded into the most existentialist stretch of his life. As he put it himself decades later during an interview in the Oval Office, “I was leading a very ascetic existence, way too serious for my own good.” In most outward ways, compared with what had come before, his life in New York was a minimalist one, without the sprawling cast of characters that had surrounded him at Oxy and in Hawaii and Indonesia. He felt no attachment to Columbia or to the first jobs he landed after graduation. But it would be a misreading to say that he was tamping down his ambitions during that period. Just the opposite, in fact. If anything, his sense of destiny deepened. He was conducting an intense debate with himself over his past, present, and future, an internal struggle that he shared with only a few close friends, including his girlfriends, Alex McNear and Genevieve Cook, who kept a lasting record, one in letters, the other in her journal.

The biggest problem which is not listed here is that Rosie wanted to talk ad nauseum about being gay. Who gives a crap? Not even gays liked her talking about being gay all the damn time. She even outed someone on the stay almost and he had not told anyone he was gay. She is beyond the pale. I would not only not hire here I have never watched her shows. Her broadway show flopped too. Dump Rosie, no, never hire Rosie.
Over the course of the last ten years, the funny, likable Rosie devolved into a boorish, divisive, nasty, partisan big mouth — and who wants to spend an hour a night with a boorish, divisive, nasty, partisan big mouth (who doesn’t believe fire can melt steel)?
By any reasonable standard, Oprah Winfrey could not have found a worse person to prop up her fledgling network. To those of us who have spent a little time outside of Manhattan and Los Angeles, hiring O’Donnell looked the move of a suicidal executive determined to bring down her own network. Why would any sane person choose as their savior the most disliked and unlikable celebrity on a planet where the competition for that title is fierce?
So why does the entertainment media refuse to point out that which is so obvious to the rest of us?
James Murdoch has stepped down as executive chairman of News International, the British arm of News Corp., the company announced Wednesday. Murdoch, who was once seen as the heir apparent to his father Rupert at the head of News Corp., has now lost a key position within the company.
News Corp. cast the move as stemming from James’ recent relocation to New York from London, and Rupert Murdoch said his son would “continue to assume a variety of essential corporate leadership mandates.”

Well over a year ago I was mad with Obama and wrote a note to him right before he appointed that fat, New York, ivory tower, Jewish, uber liberal woman to SCOTUS. I was mad and wrote “Obama, if you appoint one more Jew, I’m through with you!”
Today heard Sarah on Rush saying: This nation is not red or blue, but red, white and blue and Obama we are through with you! How funny. Lots of websites are also using another one of my sayings: In case you missed it….I don’t mind. Luv Sarah anyway
Here’s another observation I made about Alex that adds to my hypothesis that she is NOT black. Her ear lobes are attached. That is far more common in whites observed than in other races. Also I think I see a wedding band on her left hand. That would indicate, although, not online, that she is married and is using her married name.
If I had photos or names of her parents I could end the speculation. She looks Eurasian which equals NOT Black.
I borrowed and cropped this photo. She was at an event with a guy who looks Hispanic. From the bio I read she is half German and half black. Wagner is a german name so perhaps her dad is German. I don’t think she is married so that would be her maiden name. She was born and raised here. But if she is actually biracial and does not look black then she is by default white.
Given the naturally high percentage of European blood most blacks have including myself, even my blood type it is safe to say that Alex is more white than she is black at least 85%. She might marry black or think she is culturally black. But wait let’s look see at her pedigree. Where did she come from?
She is a native of DC and has hobnobbed with the rich and famous. I used to wear my hair exactly like she wears it on the show (not in the pic) for a long time. She went to Brown University which was my first choice except I was so tired of cold weather and sunless days that I opted for California universities.

Seek solutions instead of saviors. That’s why for me this global occupy and Occupy Wall Street is all about the parties, the two parties that we have in this country who have sold us out. It does not matter if the party is Dem or GOP or if the man is black or white or both. The money that it now takes to become president is obscene. It is all about the money IMO and I think that is what people are reacting to the greed is wide as the ocean. OWS need to start with two criminals: Chris Dodd and Barney Frank for the infamous Frank-Dodd bill.
We are living in an ocean of greed. It does not matter which party is in power or what the professed creed. I believe it is ONE GREED. Two parties—One Greed. We can do better in this country. We can bring jobs back if we look for solutions instead of saviors.

Hurricaine Irene could take New York City out in a way that 9/11 never could. Ironically it is the anniversary of 9/11 and we are getting close to 2012 and the alignment of the planets is still yet to come. The worst for NYC will be the flooding of the tunnels and the financial district. Hope those fat cats can float because they and their money could be underwater the whole weekend. The runways at JFK and at La Guardia are sea level and the airports could shut down in NYC also.
Unbelievable that NYC is watching for a hurricaine of the century. And it could sink and flood Obama’s plan for re election. Nature has a way of doing that.

Thanks go out to my many new readers and to Natasha Curry and to Google for steering you here for my chart toppers of all time:
Some of these blogs are a surprise. The Curry blog is not only the most popular but it is also the youngest article. I wrote it in January 2011 and it is now happily over the top in terms of numbers. I’ve updated it with new facts from readers who researched her background. Recently, found a photo of Capehart’s boyfriend and added it to that post thanks to a reader who linked the article. That one is the most surprising of all in terms of popularity. What you notice is that each one has a famous name in the title. Name-fame-game is what people care about I see.
(CNN) — Many New Yorkers and thousands of visitors this weekend may make last month’s Gay Pride celebrations seem tepid. Beginning Sunday, New York‘s same-sex couples will become eligible for marriage licenses. Tens of thousands of those couples are expected to marry over the next few years, and their vows will resonate across America.
New York is the sixth state (plus Washington) to offer marriage equality for same-sex couples. To me, after two decades of consulting with business leaders, this moment truly feels personal. It not only arrives packed with emotion, it is a real game-changer for the American work force.
New York’s mayor, Michael Bloomberg, and city leaders must be cheering the economic shot in the arm as hotels, restaurants, caterers, florists and legions of vendors welcome the wedding and honeymoon brigades. Some estimate nearly $400 million in revenues for the state over the next three years.
Understand that I mean that percentage-wise there will be more gay marriages than real ones. We know gays have more money than straight people and probably more sex too. But the gay marriage rollout will start to roll across the country and when it’s done there will be more gay/homosexual marriages than marriage between heterosexuals. Should we just let them have the country? They seem to know better than everybody else. Why can’t it just be civil marriage and rights for those who live together, like common law straight people? Too late now can’t but the genitals back in the bottle.

The latest: Weiner takes a tweet break and seeks “professional help” for his addiction. He can’t handle his own weiner–wow. He has not stepped down but has stepped aside for now. Damn everybody wants a piece of weiner LMAO.
Here’s the latest in photos. The above link is chock-full of new, I mean brand new Weinergate fodder. He is standing in the Congressional gym and snapping away. This Jew is snappier and bolder than JFK even. He is addicted to this bad behavior and needs help and just heard that he is getting help with this growing problem.
