The Iroquois vs Rick Santorum (1952) – Students of the Hermetic Sciences

I was arguing with a friend of mine, that Rick Santorum’s comments were made because he grew up sheltered probably in a private school and a wealthy family…guess I was wrong, he’s just out of touch with reality for whatever reason.

 

“We always lived on the campus of the veterans hospitals. It was called the domiciliary,” said his son, former Sen. Rick Santorum of Penn Hills. “I always joked that I spent my childhood living in public housing.”

Aldo Santorum of Crescent Beach, Fla., a clinical psychologist for the VA, died Saturday, Jan. 15, 2011, in the home where he and his wife, Catherine Dughi, lived the past 20 years. He was 88.

Mr. Santorum was born in the Trento province of Italy to Maria and Pietro Santorum. Aldo, his mother, older brother Bruno and younger sister Carla moved to the Johnstown area when he was 7 to join his father, who came to the United States five years earlier.

“My grandfather was working in the auto industry but lost his job during the Depression,” Rick Santorum said. “He finally found a job in the coal mines of Western Pennsylvania in 1929 and the family joined him.”

The family lived in a company town called Carpenters Park. “After several years in the mines, the family moved upscale to nearby Tyler Hill,” Santorum said.

Mr. Santorum joined the Army Air Corps in 1942 after high school, serving most of World War II in the South Pacific where his main job was repairing airplanes.

After returning from the war, he earned a psychology degree from St. Francis College in Loretto, a graduate degree from Catholic University in Washington and a doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Ottawa.

“He then went to work for the Veterans Administration and that is where he met my mom,” Rick Santorum said.”
