    Mitt's Adopted Black Grandson- Dockothy, Adoptee Survivor

    in Education

    Romney Family Joins Hollywood fad of Adopting Black Babies..Join us as we speak to an Adoptee Survior, Dockothy Davis! *Last week former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney announced that he had a new addition to his family.
    Romney posted a picture on Twitter with the caption,“ Our 22nd grandchild was officially adopted today: Kieran James Romney.”
    The picture was of an adorable African American baby who was adopted by one of his sons.
    Now here’s where things get interesting. Apparently the name Kieran means “little dark one” in Gaelic. The name is pretty common in Ireland, which translates to “black” or “dark.”
    Mitt Romney, AKA Mr. 1% , has a lot of grand kids but you think he would at least be able to keep count and keep up. He announced on Twitter that his 22nd grandchild, Kieran James Romney, was officially adopted. Um, one problem. Back in July, Mitt Romney, tweeted that he and his wife welcomed their 22nd grandchild. Which is it Mitt?
    "People immediately started speculating about what type of life he’s going to have growing up with the Romneys, who are known for being severely out of touch when it comes to the poor and minority communities. We should say a serious prayer for our little Kieran. 
    Join us tonight on The Gist of Freedom as we talk with Dockothy Davis.  Mr. Davis will discuss,  growing up as a foster child and then living with a white family in an exclusive white town.

    The Vocabulary Use For The Romans Fictional World Is God Jesus Heaven And Hell.

    in Music

    The vocabulary Rome use to rule people, is first God, Jesus Christ, heaven and hell. Many people do not know that the bible at its core represents a fictional picture to be taken as a literal world in which they live. Time and space have allowed the  Romans to use dictitorial maneuvers of penal laws,with religious edicts to shape societal form of behavior. In doing so over time the fictional picture takes on normative realism, and the literal situation in words is adopted to specious thinking with literal perception. It has culminated into a world of people living in mass confusion, and we are seeing it all around in every country, State, City, Town, prisons, mental institutionse and in homes. All because of a fictional book the bible.

    Author Chip Davis talks about his new book

    in Books

    Chip Davis will talk about his book, Trail of the Raven, Haiti.


    About Trail of the Raven, Haiti: Jack's life consisted of new schools, in new towns, with the same old problems. The pattern continued until he saw Ana deep in the woods. Through Ana, Jack developed a keen interest in learning who he was and where he came from, his ancestors. "The best way to learn about your ancestors is to put yourself in the same environment they were in. It isn't enough to know what they did. If you really want to know them, you need to learn about what shaped them into who they were." Those were Ana's words. Her death left Jack with the realization that he knew little of this amazing woman who was his adopted mother. The first step of Jack's quest takes him to the last place she visited before his adoption, the island of Haiti. New friends, unexpected events, and the island itself give Jack a greater understanding of Ana and ultimately himself. Come with Jack as he begins his Journey.


    About Chip Davis: Chip discovered a passion for travel as a boy when his family moved from Arkansas to Kenya for two years as missionaries. He continued moving regularly as an adult, working construction jobs across several states, until having two school-aged sons dictated that he settle down. Fast forward through 15 years of structural design, the boys are grown and it is time to travel once again.

    Chip's dream is to become like Jack, the main character in his books. He will be traveling, learning new cultures and places, and looking for ways to help people along the way. This, in turn, will fuel the books to come.

    in Fitness

    If you don't always feel good about yourself, use the NEW YEAR to create a NEW SELF-IMAGE and IMPROVE YOUR CONFIDENCE!


    The most common reason people lack SELF-ESTEEM is because they don't live up to the standard they think they should.  Expectations are programmed into our minds by family, culture and environment and many times we don't know why we adopted certain standards or even consciously realize we have them.


    Do you spend a lot of time watching TV...celebrity news and even following trends on Social Media, this could be the cause of your LOW SELF CONFIDENCE because you are absorbing other people's beliefs and standards.  So RIGHT NOW think about WHAT YOU WANT and ACT ACCORDINGLY.


    STAY TUNED...


    SELF-ESTEEM is how you...etc.


    SELF-IMAGE is how you...etc.


    SELF-CONCEPT is how you...etc.


    SELF-ACCEPTANCE is ...etc.


    We TEACH PEOPLE how to...etc.
