Italy slides back into recession with surprise GDP fall

Italy fell back into recession for the third time in five years, data showed Wednesday, with gross domestic product dropping 0.2% in the second quarter of 2014 from the previous three months.

National statistics institute Istat said Wednesday that the decline in Italy’s GDP during the second quarter stemmed from a contraction in all three main sectors of the economy — agriculture, manufacturing and services.

Iraqi Yazidis stranded on isolated mountaintop begin to die of thirst

Stranded on a barren mountaintop, thousands of minority Iraqis are faced with a bleak choice: descend and risk slaughter at the hands of the encircled Sunni extremists or sit tight and risk dying of thirst.

Humanitarian agencies said Tuesday that between 10,000 and 40,000 civilians remain trapped on Mount Sinjar since being driven out of surrounding villages and the town of Sinjar two days earlier. But the mountain that had looked like a refuge is becoming a graveyard for their children.

Unable to dig deep into the rocky mountainside, displaced families said they have buried young and elderly victims of the harsh conditions in shallow graves, their bodies covered with stones. Iraqi government planes attempted to airdrop bottled water to the mountain on Monday night but reached few of those marooned.

It wasn't anything about being against poor white people doofus; it was all about Palin being without a doubt the most ignorant individual to run for national office. This is the person who thought that the 1st Amendment shielded her from media criticism, thought the Vice President ran the Senate and couldn't describe what the Bush Doctrine was if her life depended on it.
She was put on the ticket as a sop to the extreme right and was one of the reasons McCain lost.
Who's actually at war with poor white people or poor people of any race for that matter? Raising the minimum wage would pull thousands out of poverty but that's been blocked by the GOP. Extending Medicaid would help many low income individuals get health coverage but it's been blocked in states with Republican governors and legislatures.
You're an idiot!
Do you think that Biden is 'smarter than a 5th grader'? How dumb can a vice president be? "When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said,'Look, here's what happened." –Joe Biden, apparently unaware that FDR wasn't president when the stock market crashed in 1929 and that only experimental TV sets were in use at that time, interview with Katie Couric, Sept. 22, 2008. "Look, John's last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs." --Joe Biden, Athens, Ohio, Oct. 15, 2008. "Stand up, Chuck, let 'em see ya." –-Joe Biden, to Missouri state Sen. Chuck Graham, who is in a wheelchair, Columbia, Missouri, Sept. 12, 2008. "His mom lived in Long Island for ten years or so. God rest her soul. And- although, she's- wait- your mom's still- your mom's still alive. Your dad passed. God bless her soul." --Joe Biden, on the mother of Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen, who is very much alive, Washington, D.C., March 17, 2010. "You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.... I'm not joking." --Joe Biden, in a private remark to an Indian-American man caught on C-SPAN, June, 2006. "A man I'm proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next President of the United States — Barack America!" --Joe Biden, at his first campaign rally with Barack Obama after being announced as his running mate, Springfield, Ill., Aug. 23, 2008. Several reasons McCain lost,none of them are Palin,most of them have to do with the fact that he supported the same liberal ideas held by Obama. How dumb can a president be? "The reforms we seek would bring greater competition, choice, savings and inefficiencies to our health care system." "What I was suggesting -- you're absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith..." "UPS and FedEx are doing just fine, right? It's the Post Office that's always having problems." –attempting to make the case for government-run healthcare, while simultaneously undercutting his own argument, Portsmouth, N.H., Aug. 11, 2009. "The Cambridge police acted stupidly." "I've now been in 57 states — I think one left to go." The Democrat party exploits poor people. To help poor people they need to encourage job development not raising taxes. Raising the minimum wage will do nothing but cause inflation. People need jobs,not higher taxes or higher costs of living.

Here's another Obamacare "disaster's a-comin'" alert....
The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index found an overall drop of 4 percentage points in the share of uninsured residents for states accepting the law's core coverage provisions. Those are states that expanded their Medicaid programs and also built or took an active role managing new online insurance markets.
States whose leaders still object to "Obamacare" are seeing much less change.
http://news.msn.com/us/poll-obama-health-law-...
Who woulda thought it would backfire the most in the states that played along?
Now what, Patrick? Remember that millions who are now insured by their employer will be receiving cancellations around October.
Hope most of them live in the states who rejected Obamacare. Apparently, they're going to be better off than the states who welcomed it with open arms.
Talk about your basic twist of fate...
Backfire? How is "a significant drop in the number of uninsured residents in states that fully embraced the law's coverage expansion" a backfire?

"Those states that implement the law's major mechanisms are seeing a significantly greater decline in their uninsured rates," said Dan Witters, research director for the poll.

I've stated that many times. It's your turn to answer the question. You condemn Bush, so....
So, where would you fight the Islamist jihad?
Bush left Iraq and signed off of all troops in the agreement He signed

I supported the Afghanistan war by President Bush and thought the war in Iraq, by G H W Bush ,was done well.
The overthrow of Saddam by GW Bush was done well but Not the occupation.
I supported some of the foreign policy of President Bush and always supported the USA.
You might try doing the same in 2014?
If you were a Vietnam vet... then Thanks go to you!
