According to a new biography, former President Barack Obama "considered gayness" in his college years before ultimately deciding on a more "challenging" heterosexual lifestyle.

The biography, Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama, was penned by American historian, author and New York Times and Washington Post contributor David Garrow and is set for release on May 9. Garrow is a Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer, known best for his work on Martin Luther King Jr.

But ... but ... but ... aren't all gays "born that way"?

How can you "consider gayness"?

You're either gay, or you're not ... right?

I'm so confused. What are the rules for 2017?

Lesbians aren't always "born that way," as evidenced by the "Lesbian 'til graduation" phenomenon and the many lesbians I know with children from prior straight marriages. Gay men are another matter, though. That Obama could sit down and contemplate whether he wanted to be gay or not is ... really, really odd.

My two apple trees are blooming (one red, one green that cross pollinate). I was jumping for joy at the little apple buds, so I touched one and...

The bastard fell off !

I touched another one...

That bastard fell off aussi !

Now the trees are full of water from all the rain. I should have put some plastic over them, but the wind would have ripped it off anyway.

I'll just let mother nature run its course...and NOT touch the damned buds. I guess I should check and see if the rain and wind made them all drop.

No, I don't want to know. Je vais le vérifier dans une semaine...

"le" is a pronoun you know, and I always forget it when speaking. "le" as in "le arbre" or "l'arbre" or "it".

Hmm, how about "les arbres" (two tree's) Ah yes, another mistake, I want to say "them" - donc, je vais les vérifier dans une semaine.

Glad you have it all figured out. My theory is that sexual variation covers a very broad and mysterious spectrum, and that it's a fool's game to try to outwit the hungry id.

@David: "My theory is that sexual variation covers a very broad and mysterious spectrum, and that it's a fool's game to try to outwit the hungry id."

Don't try telling the gay activists any of that, H4T3R.

They are all "born that way", dammit.

Well, except for President Obama, apparently. Because Diversity, or something.

Michelle Dulak Thomson said, "That Obama could sit down and contemplate whether he wanted to be gay or not is ... really, really odd."

It does seem odd. I've been straight since I knew how to pee.

In women, there seems to be some degree of vagueness. Women tend to be pretty, after all. Kinda difficult not to be attracted to them. I forgive lesbians their tendencies (queue joke about the cowboy going into a lesbian bar).

Men are less vague. There are men attracted to other men, and some who switch-hit, but for most men, it's pretty binary.

But sitting down and contemplating...that's really odd. It bespeaks an older culture, one of which Obama is old enough to belong to, especially given the racial identity he has assumed. It bespeaks a desire to be something he's not.

America's Politico said...

Trump's 100 days will be considered the Worst by a POTUS. He is finished. He will be lucky if he gets to finish the 1st & last term. The next POTUS will be one of the top democrats - Kamala Harris, Mark Warner, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, to give a few examples. They will bury Trump and in 2020, we will have all - Senate, House, and, of course, WH.

Game over!

The irony is that all the 1000 and more reporters covering Trump will have nothing to cover (as they support Dems). So, what will happen to new NYT, Politico, WashPost, CNN, etc. reporters? In a few years, they will lose their jobs in re-organization and re-structure.

FullMoon said...

Meanwhile, in New Zealand:

A Hamilton man has taken Kiwi ingenuity to a whole new level after using his neighbour's 8000 volt electric fence to jump-start his heart.

John Griffin suffers from atrial fibrillation [AF] - an irregular heartbeat which, if left untreated, could lead to a stroke.

One of the treatments for the condition is electric shock by defibrillator.

But when Griffin got frustrated with the emergency department during an episode, he went home and ended up using his neighbour's fence to get a shock instead.

It gave him a "decent belt", he said, and his heart started beating regularly again.

"It was right as rain ... It worked like a treat."

But medical experts have warned against Griffin's DIY method, labelling the practice "dangerous".

The 69-year-old retiree has had AF for 19 years. He says he knows when it comes on, knows when to take his medication and when to seek medical attention.

But on April 2, he lost his rag, swore at a senior nurse in Waikato Hospital's Emergency Department [ED], and ended up leaving without treatment.
Griffin said he had put up with the irregular heartbeat for about 20 hours. From 48 hours onward, a patient becomes susceptible to a stroke.

Griffin felt the atrial fibrillation wasn't going away so admitted himself to the hospital's ED.

During the first two hours, he had scans and tests, before being told it would be another six hour wait.

For the past 19 years John Griffin had an ongoing heart condition. Four weeks ago he came with an unorthodox idea to jump start his heart.
He didn't mind the wait, as he knew he wasn't a priority patient, but knew he had to take more medication to get him through the next six hours.

"I asked the nurse if I could go home and come back in say three hours but was refused as she said I would be wiped off the list and would have to start again."

He suggested that instead, he pop home and pick up more medication. But again she told him he would be put to the back of the queue, he claimed.

He then asked if the hospital could supply him with medication but was told no and warned again.

Griffin then swore at the nurse, who he then claimed told him, "I won't stand for that." He went home, took his medicine and, daunted by a trip to a hospital in Auckland, noticed his neighbour's fence.

Kicking off his boots, he put the back of his hand on the fence to give himself an electric shock.

He described the DIY method as feeling like he had received a "decent belt" through his body, but added it worked "straight away, virtually. I just walked away."

"It gave me a decent belt and [my heart] came right."

St. George said...

Re: Obama story....

Speaking with The Daily Caller's Jamie Weinstein on The Jamie Weinstein Show, [the biography's author Pulitzer Prize winner David] Garrow declined to answer if Obama actually engaged in any homosexual activity. "I think anyone and everyone, no matter what their role in life deserves a certain basic degree of privacy, in that context," said Garrow.

That is the non-answer to end all non-answers.

This story is going to be huge.

Everyone, Trump was finished on April 22 (April 23 covers in newspapers buried him). He is limping. He is disabled. He is on life-support. Now, it is the end of the beginning - end of 100. He cannot move forward. He has no brain, no smart people, etc. etc.

2018, GOP lose House and Senate. 2020, they keep those and get WH.

Watch out for the Heroes: Harris from CA, Booker from NJ, Warner from VA, and of course, Liz from MA.

Trump is probably sitting on a chair crying: Why did I run? How will I protect myself against them?

Today's millions marched against Trump. They are waiting already for the 2018 and 2020. The registration for votes is so full, that volunteers are not being hired. Everyone knows they have to register (where, when, and how).

The sex scandals involving politicians are monotonous. The politicians are either compulsive womanizers or closet gays. You seldom get a politician who puts much thought or originality into his kinks. That's why I respect and admire Anthony Weiner. His predilection not only helped defeat Hillary but also demonstrated a willingness to integrate modern technology into his libido. He's a perv for our era.

I always thought that one of the more loathsome things about the Obama years is that he seemed to be in permanent campaign mode.

But Trump is so much worse; there's almost no comparison. This speech tonight sounds like it was straight off the stump.

And if there is any interest, it is the fact that Trump is ad-libbing again. He's reading some of it, but there is enough Trump/Id insanity to think that there may be another yeuuuuge misstatement.

That I can tell you. Believe me.

Is this one reason he hightailed it to the islands?

gadfly said...

Other than #1 choice Keven King, CB, Washington - the Packer draft was ho-hum.

The stupidist draft move was the Cleveland Browns trading out of the #12 draft position when they could have had Clemson QB Deshaun Watson (only to take two picks, an unknown TE and a player that nobody knows where he will play in the NFL). Finally, the leaderless Brownies took QB DeShone Kizer from Notre Dame.

Watson will start at Houston and Kizer is QB #4 in Browntown, who likely will not rise up to start for Cleveland - it is leadership and maturity, folks. Now we know why the city is known as "The Mistake by the Lake."

I was paraphrasing you. You do not deny making a similar threat, do you?

FullMoon said...

paraphrase definition. A restatement of speech or writing that retains the basic meaning while changing the words. A paraphrase often clarifies the original statement by putting it into words that are more easily understood.

David Baker said...

Girls/women tend to be more "flexible"; same-sex, three-way, "scenes," ugly, beautiful, old, young, well, the possibilities are limitless.

Years ago Diane Sawyer visited a large women's prison and was stunned when the inmates told her quite matter-of-factly that EVERYONE inside the facility had a "girlfriend." I suspect Sawyer faked her immediate moral "orgasm," which seemed to amuse the street-smart convicts.

When she regained her composure, Sawyer then asked, and I'm necessarily paraphrasing; "Are they, are many girls forced into these, uh, relationships?"

"No." Absolutely not," replied the chorus in perfect harmony.

Michael K said...

Chuck, there are a few things I believe you about. This is not one of them.

Trump is at war with the MSM and cannot sit in the White House and expect his agenda to be enacted.

Obama was in constant campaign mode because that was all he knew how to do.

Trump is at war with a huge group of enemies that will take down the USA if that is necessary to take down Trump.

I'm afraid you are one of them.

Paul your point -- which is not a legal point and isn't even close to recognizing any of the legal points -- seems to be that any normal common sense person would never give second thought to the relevant events as giving rise to any battery charge.

Again, good for me when I do it to her.

Best of all, would be to do it to Corey Lewandowski.

But Trump, with a big tv audience, blew that off. He could have talked about a health care plan, and what he wanted. All that he did, was to spout those same campaign pablums about how "we" were going to get something great, with better care, that covered everybody, at less cost, and with lower premiums and deductibles.

And then, Trump had the nerve, to turn to Congressman Marino and say to him that he is expecting him to and the House to produce that result, and soon.

So Trump makes the promises, and tries to take the credit, and expects Congress to do the work for him. Like they were his grateful employees in the Trump Organization. Astonishing.

Ditto taxes. Trump just went back to stump speech material, about gigantic tax cuts. I listened carefully to Trump's Secretary of the Treasury and his National Economic Director last week, and they rather convincingly laid out a plan involving lowered rates and simplified, stripped-down deductions and exclusions from income, to make it all a lot more revenue neutral.

The pundits are calling this, "The most divisive speech ever delivered by an American president in the modern age." I'd agree; since Abraham Lincoln. But of course Lincoln gets credit for the greatest unification/healing speeches in American history as well.

Full Moon the readers here are bored with your trolling. You have gone down this blind alley before. It ends with me pointing out that, again, you have made up something that I never wrote and never said, and put it in quotes, as if I did. People might believe it, if I didn't correct you.

So here goes, again. Your quote of me in the first instance on this page was made up and is effectively a lie. You have an odd obsession with "titty-twisting"; something about which I never wrote, never mentioned and never ever came even close to hinting at. It's on you, that one. I don't know what sort of weird freak you are, personally, and I don't wish to know.

My comment about media whore Greta van Susteren was solely aimed at Greta's on-air comments that Michelle Fields' claim of an unwanted touching by Corey Lewandowski, which was at first denied outright by Lewandowski and by Trump and later proven by surveillance video. Greta said that it was all frivolous and would never support a prosecution for simple assault. And so I proposed doing that exact same thing to her, to see how she liked it, under the presumption that she could never credibly claim that it was an assault based upon her previous statement. Period. Full stop, Full Moon.

And now, that is what you must do. Stop. Stop these silly attacks on me that no one can possibly believe any more.

You cannot deny the validity of these prior postings of yours. And yet, over a year later, you attempt to obfuscate in a cheap lawyerly manner the original meaning of your vile threats by continuing to quote something I misunderstood and repeated in a playful manner.

The pundits are calling this, "The most divisive speech ever delivered by an American president in the modern age." I'd agree; since Abraham Lincoln. But of course Lincoln gets credit for the greatest unification/healing speeches in American history as well.

But he also sent a clear message that he would not allow the Union to be peacefully dissolved. “We cannot separate,” Lincoln declared, and “the Union . . . will constitutionally defend, and maintain itself.” Though he wished for a peaceful resolution to the conflicts between the North and the South, Lincoln made clear that the Union would not back down if provoked and would not condone secession: “There needs to be no bloodshed or violence; and there shall be none, unless it be forced upon the national authority.”

And

In your hands, my dissatisfied fellow countrymen, and not in mine, is the momentous issue of civil war. The government will not assail you. You can have no conflict, without being yourselves the aggressors. You have no oath registered in Heaven to destroy the government, while I shall have the most solemn one to “preserve, protect and defend” it.

Because we all hate you and want you to die. What, are you kidding? I've told you before that you have burnt out every angstrom of your credibility on this form.

Everyone knows exactly what you are. You are a louse. You are a worm. You are a fellator of the System. Even the truths that you stumble over from time to time are all the more likely to be deprecated because no one cares what you have to say.

I offer these remarks not to hurt you, although I despise you in the most thoroughgoing way, but because you appear confused and I hope it will be clarifying.

You are burnt. You are brûlé. The thing that people generally do in your circumstances is to delete their accounts.

I believe I've warned you of this before. I wonder that you continue in your puzzlement, or whether it is pretended. You seem to be another one of these autistic types that Ann draws.

Please let me know if I should explain using smaller words.

Thank you. One little town nearby currently has no passable roads to get in or out. The police chief of another small town has asked that people stay out because the town is flooded. All officials in the larger towns are asking that people stay home and off the roads. It's not an area prone to flooding, so most people are relatively unfamiliar with flooding. Dangerous.

Thomas Forkner, Waffle House Co-Founder, Dies at 98:

Back in the 80's, when Waffle House opened one of their iconic yellow diners here in WPB, it was so busy the help couldn't keep up. On Sundays the waiting-line spilled into the parking lot - where you could hardly find a space. You'd think it was the only restaurant within a hundred miles, but a Denny's plus a dozen others were also nearby. No matter, everyone wanted to eat their 24/7 breakfast at the Waffle House - where the hash-browns were brown and the waffles were hot.

But in the end, no one wanted to "work" there; it was just too busy, the help was quitting left and right. So, they closed up shop and retreated back to Atlanta in less than a year. That was sad day here in West Palm, when our Waffle House was Gone With The Wind.

It really can be entertaining, especially when they take the bait, hook-line-and-sinker style. My biggest problem is knowing when to stop, especially when the "no there there" pulls out the ad hominem personal attacks, which they always due. One has to know when to chuckle and walk away.

As a general rule, however, it's best to not feed the trolls. They are not amusing enough to allow them to take over.

Again; this dispute began on 4/29/17 at 7:44 pm, when "Full Moon" made up a quote and falsely attributed it to me. Only later, after my pushback, did "Full Moon" admit that it wasn't a true quote but some form of self-made "paraphrasing." It was shitty paraphrasing; I had to put it in the proper context.

Uh, my account was hacked that day, I swear.Culprit Sergi has been appropriately chastised.

I'm not sure why anybody addresses Chuck, the life long republican. There's no there there!!
It does seem quite illogical, doesn't it. But I must confess that I have at times engaged with people like Chuck because I was bored. It really can be entertaining, especially when they take the bait, hook-line-and-sinker style. My biggest problem is knowing when to stop, especially when the "no there there" pulls out the ad hominem personal attacks, which they always due. One has to know when to chuckle and walk away.
As a general rule, however, it's best to not feed the trolls. They are not amusing enough to allow them to take over.


Again; this dispute began on 4/29/17 at 7:44 pm, when "Full Moon" made up a quote and falsely attributed it to me. Only later, after my pushback, did "Full Moon" admit that it wasn't a true quote but some form of self-made "paraphrasing." It was shitty paraphrasing; I had to put it in the proper context.

And now that I have your own confirmation that in the past you were using "bait" with me, I'll know better than to respond to you in the future.


Nope. This started in April 2016 when you threatened to attack Ms. Greta van Sustern. You defended your plan of attacking her despite advice from several commenters to "calm down", "give it a rest", "take a chill pill" eyc. Then you escalated your venemous attacks to include members of the commentary, wanting to show them how it feels. Accompanied, of course by your usual vulgar name calling and insults.

Even in this thread, you accused me of usong the phrase "titty twister", when , in fact, I had simply used the word "twister", as in twisting the intent and meaning of my words.

You need to apologize and put this obsession with me behind you Chuck.

I didn't start writing about you. You started writing about me. I didn't start this. You did. You did, the same way that you have obsessively done in the past, with a fake, made-up quote that you pretended were words that I wrote.

I don't have any obsession with you. I don't care about you. I don't know anything about you, and I don't want to know anything about you. I just do not care. Go to hell. Fuck off. And do us both a favor and never write about me again. Because I won't have any trouble at all forgetting about you.

Chuck, that is a piss poor apology! Anger management classes might prove beneficial.

Chuck,

Another commenter observed, on April 16, 2016

So much of the anti-Trump rhetoric is hysterical, hate-based and over the top. Take Chuck’s vituperation as an example: “lying assholes, mendacious Trump asshattery, Fuck you, You are a real fucking joke, You are an even bigger fool and a moron, God damn you eric!”

And that’s in the comments section of just one Althouse post. The rage is palpable.

For your own good, and the good of your family, consider anger management, Chuck. Life is too short to be so angry all the time.
You seem to be a time bomb on the verge of exploding.
I empathize. I was once prone to uncontrollable rage. I am much happier now that I can control it with introspection, deep breathing, meditation, and medication.

Freeman Hunt: Update on the prom folk?

I've heard no prom-related horror stories, though there have been other deaths. Many students couldn't get to their proms, many others had to stay with friends after. Adults should have known better.

mockturtle said...

Yes, Freeman, they should have. In what part of the country do you live? Did you get tornadoes, as well?

But Chuck, people will just assume that you are afraid of him or acknowledge his supremacy over you, as is the case with you and me.
