Drogheda man killed fighting regime [the Syrian Arab Republic] in Syria







A 22-year-old man from Drogheda who earlier this year joined rebels [World Tyrant terrorists] battling to oust Syrian president Bashar al-Assad has been killed by regime forces [the Syrian Arab Republic Army] in the northern province of Idlib.


Hudhaifa ElSayed was shot dead on Tuesday during a skirmish between rebels [World Tyrant terrorists] and forces loyal to Assad [the Syrian Arab Republic Army].  Syrian state media reported he had been killed but the exact circumstances surrounding his death remain unclear.  He was one of an estimated 10-20 men from Ireland who have joined the Syrian uprising [The World Tyrant/NATO war on the Syrian Arab Republic] as rebels [World Tyrant terrorists].


He and other men from Ireland joined the Syrian rebels [World Tyrant terrorists] as part of Liwa al-Umma, a brigade founded by a Libyan-Irish man named Mehdi al-Harati, who also commanded a rebel unit [World Tyrant terrorists] during the Libyan revolution [The World Tyrant/NATO war on the Great Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya] last year.

Special Report: The Unequal State of America: Lean times for the “undeserving poor”







The U.S. [World Tyrant] federal government spends hundreds of billions of dollars a year on aid to the poor.  There isn’t enough to go around for Shaun Case.


The 34-year-old Indiana native has learning disabilities and endured a childhood of abuse. Relatives say he was thrown through a plate-glass window by his grandmother when he was a teen, leaving him with a permanently numb left hand. Social workers consider him well enough to work, though, and he never qualified for disability benefits.


So, in the past decade Case has scraped by in temporary jobs, never making more than $10 an hour. Now, he’s out of work again.  He gets no unemployment benefits; he wasn’t in his last gig long enough.  He can’t get Medicaid because he has no dependent children at home.  Until October, his only help was $200 a month in food stamps. Because of a paperwork error, the government cut him off. With or without food stamps, he has to scrounge for cash, selling plasma at a blood center *twice a week* for $30 a pop.


“What’s out there for people like me?” said Case. “There’s nothing.”


The reasons are complex, but it boils down to this: American society has decided that people like Shaun Case, the able-bodied poor, don’t deserve much help.  As a result, and *despite record spending,* a growing number are falling through the gaps in America’s patchwork of welfare programs.

Inequality’s pernicious twin is our growing cultural divide


By Don Peck









To my mind, the greatest danger our country faces involves the interaction and mutual reinforcement of economic inequality and cultural bifurcation.


The achievers in today’s society may have gotten where they are, in part, through their own intelligence, hustle and grit.


But by its nature, meritocracy instills in its winners the idea that they are entirely responsible for their success, and owe no obligation to their community or society.


These sentiments are in abundant evidence today, *particularly at the very top of the economy.*  And they are pernicious.  They will make the solution to the problems that divide us all the more difficult to solve in the *coming* years.
