U.N. weapons inspectors to return to Syria

U.N. investigators are planning to return to Syria soon to follow up on several more allegations of chemical weapons use.

Ake Sellstrom, the head of the inspection team that visited after an August 21 attack, told CNN that the second visit could take place as early as next week.

The news will likely please Russia, who slammed a recent U.N. chemical weapons report as "one-sided" and called for inspectors to return to Syria.

    Among the 254 counties where food stamp recipients doubled between 2007 and 2011, Republican Mitt Romney won 213 of them in last year’s presidential election, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture data compiled by Bloomberg. Kentucky’s Owsley County, which backed Romney with 81 percent of its vote, has the largest proportion of food stamp recipients among those that he carried.
    WHO are "the takers?"

      Finally, a point we can agree on: End all food stamps now. And all section 8 housing, and WIC, and headstart, and medicaid. Balance the budget by the end of next year. When over 52% of government activity is wealth redistribution, and 30% is interest on debt, we are broken. Dim o crat, I blame you, but if you think the other side is a program parasite – let's end it all!

      I see you didn't understand the stats I posted. The "takers" in your programs vote overwhelmingly Republican. Cut those programs of our Nations poorest, and you would lose the WH for the next....forever. The top 1% cannot generate enough votes for the GOP.

      The recipients of these programs are overwhelmingly GOP voters. Cut these programs out and you will lose the WH forever.

    It is wrong to scorn today's Republican Party as lacking values.
    It has values. The GOTP has demonstrated that one of its values is appreciation of hunger and acceptance of hungry Americans.

    Good night.
