Noticed a strange trend where Children of Divorce like to usurp the Government whipe exposing wrongs. They are paying a big price.

Heres a list. Don’t know who else would qualify.

Julian Assange. Parents never married? Went through mothers divorce from step-father. assange is holed up in the Equadorian Embassey in England.

Barrett Brown. Divorce at Age 7. Brown is in jail in Texas I think. Am not sure that Brown was exposing wrongs so much as just upsetting the status quo.

Chelsea Manning. Divorce at around Age 13. Manning is in jail?

Edward Snowden. Divorce at around age 18. Snowden is in exile in Russia.

 



Are Members of Congress Children of Divorce?

It’s an election year so became curious about members of Congress. Does the United States tend to elect Children of Divorce? President Obama, of course, is the most distinguished COD on the planet. But, what about the others? From the looks of it…are there any others?

I went through all the Wikipedia articles of the current 543 members of congress because I’m totally nuts. I found 19 members who let it be known that their parents split. Of that group 3 were adults when their parents split so they didn’t grow up with divorce. This means that in an age where 40-50 percent of children are being raised by single parents, only about 3-4 percent of the country’s top leaders come from this experience.

This doesn’t mean that other members of congress aren’t from divorce, it just means that the others either fear the stigma of saying that their parents split, or they don’t feel it was a big deal, or they live in denial of their feelings. They probably also feel that Global Warming doesn’t exist either.

Anyway, Thanks to the following leaders who are brave enough to mention this experience in their lives. I know it takes guts.

Heres the list that I’ve come up with. There’s an article out on the web called “10 weirdest members of congress.” Three Children of Divorce are on it, almost 30 percent of the list, so I guess that when we do decide to take on a leadership role we really go all out. http://www.citypages.com/news/the-10-weirdest-members-of-congress-6765990
