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.
Jealous haters make us smile, they spend their life cloning our style. Nothin' better to do with their time, they'll even try to copy our rhyme. Ain't none like us, as you can see, we the best, so let it be.
If America adopted that [polygamy] culture there would be less domestic disputes. The average guy in the world has a main girl and they got a side chick. And then they got a jumpoff. At the end of the day as a male we are natural breeders by nature. We can’t even escape it if we wanted to. Let’s say you put 1,000 guys on one corner and one bad chick walk past. You gon’ see 1,000 heads go, ‘Damn.’ They don’t even know why they doing it. They’re natural breeders. It’s in their genes, they can’t help it. Even if you’re walking with your girl and you’re holding her hand and you see a bad chick walk by and she lookin’ at you like, ‘Boy you better not look,’ you gonna wanna look so bad and you don’t even know why that urge is there, but you’re a natural breeder. It’s what we do. Men are put on this earth to breed and the reason why God put multiple women on this earth is for that.
Nikki Preece, Ex. Dir. of Fulshear Ranch Academy, a therapeutic boarding school near Houston Texas for young women ages 18 and above, joined Lon Oct. 9, 2014 to explain their adoption of an Attachment Model last Spring for their young adult women. Nikki explained how these girls suffer from attachment insecurity and often have been adopted. This decision was made from comments by their students that had been in many therapeutic programs and felt they "learned nothing good about themselves.' The girls are now very positive and enthusiastic about this new approach Nikki explained.

Today we will hear from two little dogs making a big difference: Lee and Juno.
Lee is a long haired Chihuahua that spent the first 8 years of his life living in a wire cage in a puppy mill. Hear about his glorious new life and how he is changing the world one smile at a time.
Juno was two months old and sick with pneumonia when Deborah Young adopted her and nursed her back to health with a lot of "TLC, sleepless nights and a steam shower running." The pair quickly bonded, and soon Juno was traveling with Young 24/7. And even while Juno herself was slowly getting over her serious pneumonia, the little dog would cuddle and clean the rescued kittens that Young was also caring for. Now Juno is on a mission, and you will hear all about it.
We will also introduce you to Douglas, a 4 1/2 year old Bea Tzu.

In writing his new book "Last Stand: Ted Turner's Quest to Save a Troubled Planet," environmental journalist Todd Wilkinson ventured deeper into the inner space of Ted Turner than any other before him. That inner space reveals a Turner who has largely been unknown to most people. Last Stand has won national critical acclaim and has been widely adopted as an essential reading for conservation organizations, universities, government policy makers, businesses, and book clubs across the country. But as many say, "Last Stand" actually reads like an adventure story.
Todd, who started his career nearly 30 years ago as a violent crime reporter in Chicago, first met Ted in 1992 in Montana where Turner has his flagship ranch, the Flying D, and where Todd lives today. For the book Todd interviewed a number of noteworthy individuals including four Nobel Peace Prize laureates, Jane Fonda, Sen. Sam Nunn and many other major figures. Todd has been on a national tour promoting Last Stand and he joins us today from the wild American West.
