Who is Dead Obama Staffer Alex Okrent
The Western Center for Journolism ^ | 7/15/12 | Kris Zane

Posted on 07/15/2012 6:25:57 PM PDT by Nachum

A huge story on July 13 was the death of Obama campaign staffer Alex Okrent. Apparently, he had been at Obama’s campaign headquarters in Chicago, fine one minute, dead the next. Witnesses say he collapsed, whereby paramedics were called, and the next thing everyone knows, he’s dead.

Young, twenty-nine years old? Mysteriously dies?

Nothing to see here, move on…

Except…

Per the Obama campaign, Okrent had been a staffer going all the way back to Obama’s 2004 U.S. senate campaign—being on staff for eight years. That’s a long time.

The guy must have a lot of history. A lot of stories to tell.

Except…

Do a Google search. You will find that the guy literally does not exist. Except for the story about his death, the guy does not appear anywhere. Even if he wasn’t an Obama campaign staffer, anyone who has googled their own name knows everyone that walks the face of this Earth who has not lived in a cave all of their lives will be all over the Internet.

Perhaps Obama’s targeting those supporters who accomplish little through their works but he knows whose funerals would bring in a lot of dough if they were to mysteriously die.

>>whose funerals would bring in a lot of dough if they were to mysteriously die. Is there going to be an Alex Okrent song the way the Nazis had the Horst Wessel song? As for dying suddenly like that it could in all honesty be the dreaded "undiagnosed heart defect". For example I remember hearing a 18 yr old high school student from RI died suddenly. Seemed in perfect shape. 6 yrs earlier, was on a championship Little League team. But he may have had a heart defect that wasn't known till after he died. Who knows though. Drug related? Sudden death... One tweet he did spoofed a Romney comment: >>Alex Okrent ‏@HeyAok The beers are the right height in Michigan. @ Bangor Tavern

To view Twitter history:

Go to...

http://snapbird.org

Next to “who?” type: HeyAok

Then click “find it”

Then keep clicking “Search next 1000 tweets” until it no longer updates more tweets.

Then you can copy all the tweets in his account history. I got back to december 3rd 2009

Hurry, they may delete his twitter account soon.

http://ageconsearch.umn.edu/bitstream/103625/2/AAEA_12746.pdf

Oh, and his sister seems to think that the cure for obesity is to tax ‘unhealthy’ (ie: Cheap) food.

ABSTRACT. Many commentators have claimed that farm subsidies have contributed
significantly to the “obesity epidemic” by making fattening foods relatively cheap and
abundant and, symmetrically, that taxing “unhealthy” commodities or subsidizing
“healthy” commodities would contribute to reducing obesity rates. This paper makes
three contributions. First, we review evidence from the literature on the impacts on food
consumption and obesity resulting from subsidies applied in the past to production or
consumption of farm commodities. Second, we develop and present new arguments
and preliminary evidence on the impacts of past government investments in agricultural
R&D on food consumption and obesity—through research-induced increases in
agricultural productivity and the consequences for prices, production, and consumption
of farm commodities. Third, we consider and compare the economic efficiency of
hypothetical agricultural research policies (changing the orientation of agricultural
research investments) versus hypothetical agricultural commodity subsidies and taxes
as alternative mechanisms for encouraging consumption of healthy food or discouraging
consumption of unhealthy food, or both.
