Half of southern Italians at risk of poverty

Half of southern Italians at risk of poverty:

One in four Italians is at risk of poverty or social exclusion, a new report from national statistics agency Istat has found. According to the estimates, almost 17.5 million people in the country live in poverty.

Families with children are more at risk of poverty than ever, with those having at least three children at highest risk. Data shows that last year 48.3 percent of them were struggling to make ends meet. That figure was up from 39.4 percent in 2014.

Overall, the poverty rate in Italy has remained stable at 28.7 percent compared with 28.3 percent a year earlier.

Half Of The Population Of The World Is Dirt Poor – And The Global Elite Want To Keep It That Way

Half Of The Population Of The World Is Dirt Poor – And The Global Elite Want To Keep It That Way:

Could you survive on just $2.50 a day?  According to Compassion International, approximately half of the population of the entire planet currently lives on $2.50 a day or less.  Meanwhile, those hoarding wealth at the very top of the global pyramid are rapidly becoming a lot wealthier.  Don’t get me wrong – I am a very big believer in working hard and contributing something of value to society, and those that work the hardest and contribute the most should be able to reap the rewards.  In this article I am in no way, shape or form criticizing true capitalism, because if true capitalism were actually being practiced all over the planet we would have far, far less poverty today.  Instead, our planet is dominated by a heavily socialized debt-based central banking system that systematically transfers wealth from hard working ordinary citizens to the global elite.  Those at the very top of the pyramid know that they are impoverishing everyone else, and they very much intend to keep it that way.

90-year-old Florida man arrested for second time in a week after feeding the homeless again

90-year-old Florida man arrested for second time in a week after feeding the homeless again:

Not everything has to be regulated. Not everything has to be codified and signed off on by the red tape gurus. Life CAN happen just fine without such interference. And when the government is stopping a man from feeding the hungry, rest assured something is very wrong with the regulations, the codes, and the local bureaucrats.

(From The NY Daily News)

When 90-year-old Florida resident Arnold Abbott said following his arrest on Sunday that police couldn’t stop him from feeding the homeless, he apparently meant it.

Abbott was charged again on Wednesday night for violating a new city law in Ft. Lauderdale that essentially prevents people from feeding the homeless.

“I expected it” he said in a Sun Sentinel report. “At least this time they let us feed people first.”

Hillary Clinton made $3 million for ‘speeches’ to 12 ‘bail-out’ banks while ALWAYS CRIMINALLY SILENT on reneged official promises to end poverty

Trump-Clinton


Ms. Clinton made $3 million for ‘speeches’ to 12 ‘bail-out’ banks while ALWAYS CRIMINALLY SILENT on reneged official promises to end poverty:

hat tip: The Intercept

The big deal about Ms. Clinton is the same for all “leaders” of both US political parties:

Ms. Clinton acted in Orwellian opposition to her Oath-sworn job as US Secretary of State with ongoing violations of the US Constitution through US Wars of Aggression, various US War Crimes, and support of other nations’ Wars of Aggression.

Consider her job to uphold the Department of State’s Mission Statement as she engaged in armed attacks around the world:
