Malaysia Prime Minister: Flight MH370 Ended In The Indian Ocean
He said the data indicated the plane flew "to a remote location, far from any possible landing sites."
"It is therefore with deep sadness and regret that I must inform you that, according to this new data, Flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean."
He said Malaysia Airlines has informed the families of passengers of the plane's fate.

Show me which party fought tooth & nail to keep 40 billion oil subsidies yet voted to cut food stamps by 8 billion.
Show me the party that voted to leave tens of millions of Americans without health Insurance.
Show me which party's Governors voted to stop free heath care to millions of their constituents for political purposes.
Food stamps weren't cut, once again you display your ignorance and lies for all to see.

There is no FREE anything, Dopey.

There's no $40 billion in oil subsidies either.

I have yet to hear a single one of these stories where it didn't turn out the person complaining was only covered for a catastrophic event. That is not insurance. No one can believe a word you people say.
No one can believe a word the liar of the year Il Douche says either, at least 29 times he lied to America about Obamakare.

For a president that promised to reduce the national debt, Obama has added a massive seven trillion dollars to that debt. Under his presidency, America has accumulated as much new debt as it did in its first 227 years.

He heads an Administration that produces food stamps, pries into people’s private lives, and sets government agencies against political opponents. Obama is following the guidebook of Saul Alinsky,“Rules for Radicals,” and is putting Alinsky’s primer into practice from the White House. The results of his experiment are devastating.

Under Obama, prices and taxes rose while take home pay fell 7%. Government hand-outs increased dramatically as the national debt has exploded. Recent estimates put 50 million Americans on food stamps, and millions without healthcare.

Don’t Blame Obama for Bush’s 2009 Deficit

The 2009 fiscal year began October 1, 2008, nearly four months before Obama took office. The budget for the entire fiscal year was largely set in place while Bush was in the White House.

You mean like democrats throwing Oreo cookies at him during a gubernatorial debate in 2002?
Honestly? You're going to bring up that over rehashed lie? What is it with you people? Once you get your teeth into a false narrative you just can't let it go.

Michael Steele has said that "he did not see the Oreos in the air, but when he got up, noticed them at his feet when he stepped on one and heard a crunching sound." In 2006, after numerous witnesses confirmed no one threw any cookies, Steel stated, "I've never claimed that I was hit, no. The one or two that I saw at my feet were there. I just happened to look down and see them."

Today's rising food prices will trap millions tomorrow - case studies
Millions of the world’s poorest people will face devastation from today’s rocketing food prices because the global food system is fatally flawed and policy-makers can’t find the courage to fix it.
Policy-makers have taken cheap food for granted for nearly 30 years. Those days are gone. Developing countries are bracing themselves for the worst effects of rising corn, soy and wheat prices on their poorest people.
Fragile populations around the world, living on or near the poverty line, will be dragged under by price spikes and volatility. Nearly a billion people are already too poor to feed themselves, so any long-term food spike is guaranteed to trap millions more who are now just “getting by”. Worrying too is the continuing drop in global corn stocks that are now at their lowest levels for six years .
History is repeating itself and will keep doing so until we tackle the fundamental weaknesses that keep a billion people hungry.
We must stop the obscene waste of food including burning it as biodiesel in our trucks and cars.
We need to tackle climate change and land-grabs and damaging speculation.
We must build up our food stocks and kick-start good investment again in small-holder farmers and in resilient, sustainable agriculture.
- See more at: http://www.oxfam.org/en/grow/issues/food-pric...
I remember when Bush blamed the rising food prices on India.

"So, for example, just as an interesting thought for you, there are 350 million people in India who are classified as middle class. That's bigger than America. Their middle class is larger than our entire population.

"And when you start getting wealth, you start demanding better nutrition and better food, and so demand is high, and that causes the price to go up."

The "unexpected" was insured. That's what insurance is. It's not prepaid healthcare or a welfare program. No bankruptcy. Most people don't run to the doctor with their 10 dollar copay for a scraped knee or cut finger. That's what drove prices up.
The "unexpected" is not insured unless your daughter can cover her high deductible and 30% of all the cost associated with her unforeseen medical needs. The way you talk, I doubt she has the resources to cover those expenses but, no problem, if she gets in a bind she will just file bankruptcy.
