Bullying comes in all forms and fashion. Just in the news today are articles of unending examples.

Birthers Go After Mitt Romney

Reported by MSN Now, Birthers want proof that Mitt Romney was born in America. Romney’s father was born in Mexico. Romney’s grandfather fled the revolt in Mexico with his family. The question remains how did the Romney family enter the United States.  So was Miles Park Romney, Mitt’s grandfather a wet back – an illegal immigrant along with George’s father?

Tracing Romney’s Mexican Roots

When Romney’s father wanted to run for the presidency, it was disclosed  George, was born in Colonia Dublan, one of the colonies in northern Mexico that the Romneys settled. In theory, Romney could run for president of Mexico if the United States gig doesn’t work out for him.

Romney’s Mexican roots run so deep that he has family there of which he never speaks.   Other branch of the family – leading down to Romney’s cousins Leighton, Mike and Meredith – stayed behind in Mexico, their numbers growing. The Romneys chose to remain in Mexico because they established good lives for themselves and their families there.  Most of them are now dual-citizens.

Mexican Romneys

Ironic that the Birthers harassed  President Obama until recently regarding his birth place. The group is now after the Republican front runner – Mitt Romney. ”

 Matt Romney joked in New Hampshire Friday that his father will share his tax returns when President Obama releases his birth certificate, among other things. Mitt Romney’s son later called it a “bad joke,” but that hasn’t stop the Obama campaign from exploiting the gaffe.

Sexism and Harassment in the Air Marshal’s Program

Dear Friends,

Most of us have enough to be worried about when it comes to air safety and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) without having to fear bad behavior or dereliction of duty by some of our own air marshals. That’s why I called for a full investigation of the TSA’s Air Marshal Service two years ago, after I received a number of complaints from whistleblowers about mismanagement, bigotry and sexism in the Service.

Air marshals are supposed to guard against terrorists on airplanes, not fall asleep in flight or sexually harass coworkers, as is now being reported. The results of the inspector general’s investigation I called for are coming out this week – and, it’s clear from the report there have been some serious problems.

There is “a great deal of tension, mistrust and dislike between non-supervisory and supervisory personnel in field offices around the country,” the reports states. The full report is due out tomorrow. Last night both ABC and CBS ran news stories on the findings. You can watch the stories by clicking on the videos below.

Also, please take a minute and let me know what you think about the findings.

Arkansas – The Event

Russian Intelligence believe John P. Wheeler III was murdered because he was about to reveal that secret Pentagon quantities of Phosgene gas had been released into the environment. 

Approximately 3,000 red-winged blackbirds rained down from the sky on New Year’s Eve.  The dead birds scattered over a 1.5-square-mile area. That wasn’t the end of The Event.  100,000 dead freshwater drum fish began washing up on the riverbank of the Arkansas River.
