I got an email about Rahm Emanuel majoring in ballet in college. So I did the search and it turns out it is true. From Wikipedia…
|Emanuel was encouraged by his mother to take ballet lessons as a boy and is a graduate of the Evanston School of Ballet as well as a student of The Joel Hall Dance Center, where his children also took dance lessons. He won a scholarship to the Joffrey Ballet but turned it down to attend Sarah Lawrence College, a liberal arts school with a strong dance program.|
Now, I do not fault him for pursuing dance, I believe we should all follow our passions. One might find it curious though to how a dance major, became a Chief of Staff and Mayor of one of the largest cities in the world? I guess the old saying stands true, it is not what you know, but who you
While we are on the Emanuels…
Ari from the hit TV show Entourage portrays Rahm’s real life brother Ari Emanuel. Ari on TV, is famously known as a man with psychopathic behavior and that berates and belittles all to get his way. While I realize it is shows like this that go to normalize psychopathic behavior, they really blew the series finally when it ended with Ari throwing off his psychopathic behavior to be the good guy in the end. What bullshit! These people never change, and only leave an emotional wasteland behind them.
Take a few seconds to look through this list and see if you can identify someone in your life that fits this list of traits.
- Glibness/superficial charm.
- Grandiose sense of self-worth.
- Need for stimulation/proneness to boredom
- Pathological lying
- Lack of remorse or guilt
- Shallow affect
- Callous/lack of empathy
- Parasitic lifestyle
- Poor behavioral controls
- Promiscuous sexual behavior
- Early behavior problems
- Lack of realistic, long-term plans
- Failure to accept responsibility for own actions
- Many short-term marital relationships
If you did find out that someone that fits this description, you have a real life psychopath in your life.
These people are very dangerous people that poison other’s lives in order to fill a hole in their soul. They look normal and wear the mask of sanity, but underneath lies a social predator. They think that they are superior to all others and inflict their will to control others. I have said that there are ONLY two kinds of people in this world; those that want to be left alone and those that won’t leave you alone. If you know people like Ari from TV shun them. The sooner the better. If we all refused to deal with people like this in our lives, what a wonderful world it would be.
