Between Berlusconi Bipartisan Plan and D'Alema great Alliance I choose Revolution

Stories and News No. 311

D'Alema and Berlusconi. Berlusconi and D'Alema.
Do you know something about the bicameral in 1997?
It was a horrible so much prophetic type of mess between Mr. D'Alema and Berlusconi, proposed by the former.
As time goes on, isn’t it?
That is, time passes, but the thirst for mess-ups by the two brilliant statesmen is never satisfied.
In my humble opinion it is an absolutely not random fact that we have today two similar interventions on Italy press.
D’Alema, current president of Copasir, in an interview with La Repubblica, in anticipation of early elections makes an appeal to an ideal grid, which comprehends Democratic Party Fini and Casini’s Terzo Polo, the Italy of Values and the radical left, proposing to voters a government of national responsibility.
At the same time, Silvio, the nephew of Mubarak’s best friend, writes a letter to the Corriere della Sera and proposes to the leader of the Democratic Party Bersani a bipartisan plan for the Italian economy.
Now, it happens that according to the recent survey by Luigi Crespi - far from being a detractor of Mr Berlusconi –the voting intentions of the Italians show a decline in confidence in Silvio about four points while 42% are undecided, higher than the number of centre-right and centre- left electors.
Undecided people…
That is a way to define them.
Another is people who are tired of this shit, if you'll pardon the style fall.
What do the undecided people think about the two proposals?
I tried to synthesize them (if possible) and asked a so-called undecided guy’s opinion…

The Story:

Silvio Berlusconi Proposal (summary):
The alternative is between a "dry blow", unjust and ineffective in the long term, and so depressing for any prospect of private investment and undertaken, and the biggest whipping the horse economy in Italian history memories.
We need a much clearer economy, this is the whipping which I speak of, in a country more stable, less quarrelsome, and confident and even in love with itself and its future. The dry blow is a waiver of state, cultural reactionary to move forward on the road liberal. To Bersani I propose to act together in Parliament to discuss without prejudice and exclusivism a large bipartisan plan for the Italian economy, a government plan whose centerpiece is the constitutional reform of Article 41, months ago announced by Minister Tremonti, and drastic measures on the market allocation of public property and de-wide taxation for the benefit of businesses and young people.

Massimo D'Alema Proposal (summary):
Here is a real democratic emergency. We go out only with a constitutional type plan, which coincides the conclusion of the cycle Berlusconi with the end of a certain phase of the bipolar and gathers the vast array of forces opposed to Berlusconi: Let’s introduce and ask voters to support a constituent government which has three basic objectives.
First: to solve the problem of political and institutional forms of bipolarity Italian. We are in a plebiscite and populist, built around Berlusconi. We need to finally build a two-party democracy.
Second: The second is a great social pact for growth. We experienced this with the euro, and it was the real success of the Nineties. Today there is much in need. But it can not be entrusted only to the social partners, or can only be paid by either party.

The undecided guy’s opinion:
The undecided guy: What is the Article 41 of the Constitution that Berlusconi wants to reform?
Blog: Private economic initiative is free. It shall not be contrary to public benefit or to harm the safety, freedom, human dignity.
The law shall provide appropriate programs and controls for public and private economic activity may be directed and coordinated towards social targets.
The undecided guy: I see... Another thing: what is the third objective of D'Alema? No, because he talks about three goals and since the first two seem a bit vague…
Blog: Hum… Excuse me, the third... I searched in the article, but I could not find it. Anyway, what proposal among the two do you choose?
The undecided guy: The third one, Revolution!

Berlusconi PDL manifestation protest against judges: excellent adhesions list

Stories and News No. 310

If I had not the faintest idea of the country where we live today and, above all, what kind of people are governing, I would almost always see news as hoaxes.
In other words, instead of a state whose image is daily degraded by his so-called leaders, we would live in a nation led by a band of wags, dedicated to do everything to give a laugh to the people.
So, abroad people would say: Italy, what a friendly country, where the joy rules and the jokes go around.
The problem is that the fact I read this morning does not seem to be a joke: Berlusconi’s People of Freedom are preparing a manifestation for 13 February 2011 against the judges who are guilty of attacking Silvio Berlusconi.
Look, I sincerely hope that this may soon be denied, otherwise, once such a joke will travel around the world, a hard to forget in the near future laughing will rise up.
However, regardless of whether the grotesque initiative will be confirmed or not, I went around the web in search of the first signers.
These are excellent names.
People who, as Silvio, would like so much a world without laws and judges…

Berlusconi newspaper attacks prosecutor Ilda Boccassini

Stories and News No. 309

After this post, do not tell me that I am not unbiased.
When it comes to even recognize the merits of those who I usually disapprove of, I do not hesitate.
Though reluctantly, I must admit my sincere admiration for the article published today by Il Giornale, Berlusconi’s newspaper.
The title is evocative: "Private loves of Boccassini".
The clever article is pretty much focused on a brilliant scoop on the prosecutor Ilda Boccassini, part of the court of Milan, between the accusers in the recent investigations on Italy Prime Minister.
In the work, we read about a murky past.
In fact, that's incredible, in 1982 - twenty-nine years ago – Mrs Boccassini was seen in love attitudes with a communist journalist!
So the contradictions of the magistrate are obviously highlighted, since she is guilty today to rummage in the private life of Berlusconi.
She shows a double morality, in fact.
This is journalism, I must admit.
But my opinion counts for little.
Apparently, the ability of the editorial staff of Il Giornale has not ignored by the U.S. experts and seriously affected by the now legendary Boffo Method, they decided to award them with the Pulitzer Prize

The Story:

Motivations:
For the ability to do journalism as none in the world does.
For the creativity in finding new ways to favor.
For the effort in finding new reasons to defend newspaper’s owners.
For the nerve to go around telling to be free to write what you want.
For fairness in punishing anyone who dares to criticize the newspaper’s owners.
For the courage to publish news that nobody, but really, no one would dare even to think, let alone publish them.
For the amazing imagination to distort the facts in order to sell an extra copy.

In addition, a special mention for the Boffo Method:
A concrete demonstration of how powerful and enlightening the press is, if you put in the hands of those who are willing to write anything to achieve their goal.

For all these reasons,
we are proud to offer the Pulitzer Prize to the Editorial Staff of Il Giornale.

PS.
We forgot the section of the award, that is new this year:
Newspapers and journalists who unworthily bear this name.
(Because a slave pen is never worth reading...)

Bunga Bunga Arcore parties for Berlusconi defense

Stories and News No. 308

"All the ladies were nicely respectful and obsequious to the President. Being a journalist I noticed that there was around a lot of Coca-Cola light, mineral water and some bitterness. I was the only one who drank vodka. The Prime Minister was very nice and correct, he told stories of his life, his experiences in Paris, sometimes singing songs…"
This passage is taken from the statements made by one of about thirty witnesses in the hands of Piero Longo and Niccolò Ghedini, Mr Berlusconi's defense in case Ruby.
In the specific, he is Carlo Rossella, President of Medusa film.
As if to say, he is an impartial voice…
I read that this is more or less the words by other witnesses.
Suddenly I have a doubt: if it were all true?
Oh my God…
If Berlusconi is right and all this scandal was only the result of machinations of the left-wing newspapers and prevented judges?
If Silvio’s lawyers are true, then, the pictures of the Bunga Bunga parties that I draw in my fantasy completely change…

The Story:

In Lombardy, in the province of Monza and Brianza, there is a pleasant town called Arcore.
In Arcore there is a house inhabited by god-fearing people…


Inside there is a room where the landlord, the pious Silvio, invites other white souls as him for frugal dinners. It is a humble room with a prepared in the name of moderation table…


At most there is time for an ice cream in the yard…


After dinner they sing inspired hymns…


They thank heaven for the received gifts…


Then all to bed, waiting to wake up and continue to do good things for the world…


Here is the video:

The Berlusconi Show phone calls

Stories and News No. 307

Now he starts to be depressing.
Could you imagine him?
A seventy-four old man, sitting in a chair with the blanket on his legs, which makes zapping between TV channels in search of talk shows that say bad things on him.
Then he phone calls and tries to intervene.
I know it is a sad image for prime minister, but this is the reality.
That is a miserable story.
For this reason, I need to laugh about.
Many do not know - here's the new scoop - that Berlusconi, before calling Gad Lerner’s talk show last night, he got the wrong number and called a family like many others.
Since he had prepared the speech, before realizing the error, Silvio started to speak…

The Story:

"Hello?" Paolo said, ten years old.
"Good evening, they called me to tune on TV…"
"Hello?" the child repeated. "Who speaks?"
"I'm seeing a disgusting talk show!"
Mario, redundancy worker, takes the handset.
"Who is?" the man asks.
"I saw a despicable, vile, repulsive hosting..."
"Who is?!"
"I heard false, opposed to reality, far from the truth, and distorted arguments..."
"Who are talking?" Mario's wife asks. She is unemployed, now surrendered.
"I do not know," the husband replies, "maybe they want to sell me something: we don’t buy anything!"
"I saw a contrary of the truth representation of reality!"
"Hello?" Luisa says, succeed the husband.
"I know what I'm saying, you did not."
"Who speaks?" the woman exclaims angrily. "What kind of joke is this?"
"You have hurt Ms Nicole Minetti!"
"We? But who knows this Nicole Minetti?!"
"Who the fuck are you?" Mario screams, getting back the handset.
"Nicole Minetti is a wonderful person, smart, prepared, serious, she graduated with honors, cum laude…"
"And who cares?!" the husband replies.
"She paid her studies with her job."
"Lucky her! My daughter works at a call center. At best, she charges the phone and gets gasoline to scooter…"
"She is English mother tongue and plays an important and appreciated working with all international visitors to the Region. She worth much more than many of the so-called ladies there…"
While Laura, his daughter approached curious, Mario loses his temper: "Hey, but how dare you?! The ladies here are Italian mother tongue and have nothing to envy to this Nicole Minetti…"
"The prime minister had never relations except friendship and respect for her and his other guests…"
"Who? The prime minister?! Fuck you!"
After abruptly stopping the call, Mario turns and the whole family applauded him warmly.
"Let's back to eat before the dinner is cold”, the man says. "There's people out there who have nothing better to do..."

Minister Ignazio Larussa, the ignorant who ignores…

Stories and News No. 306

"I do not think the bishop will be offended if I say that he is ignorant. In the sense that he ignores what is happening there."
So the minister Ignazio Larussa replied to the bishop Mattiazzo, which had said: "Of course I am sorry that this young man is dead. However, let's plan with the exaltation of rhetoric, let's not make them heroes. Those are not peace-keeping missions."
The young man is Matteo Miotto, the Italian soldier recently died in Afghanistan.
I'm not going to enter the controversy about what a hero is or not.
For my part, I remain faithful to Brecht's famous motto: Happy is the country that does not need heroes.
And we all know how much our country needs happiness.
I wish to comment on the words by Italy minister of defense.
Larussa calls the bishop ignorant in the sense that he ignores what is happening there.
There
Does he mean Afghanistan with there?
And when he refers to what happens, is he talking about the actual war in Afghanistan?
If so, this implies that he perfectly know what happens there…

The Story:

Once upon a time there was Ignazio.
Ignazio of course knew that the war in Afghanistan began Oct. 7, 2001 by decision of the U.S. government led by George W. Bush, responding to the 11 September tragic facts.
Ignazio was of course aware that, as Bush himself said, the objective of the mission was primarily to defeat Al-Qaida and capture Osama Bin Laden, believed to be primarily responsible for the massacre of the twin towers.
Objective never reached, because false, Ignazio recalled.
As Ignazio was aware of the fact that the United Nations Security Council did not authorize the invasion by the U.S. and British armies, since it establishes that all members have an obligation to resolve their disputes peacefully and that the military action is only permitted in self defense.
Ignazio remembered accurately that Italy joined the Isaf mission, to support the Afghan government, only after 20 December 2001, when the first formal resolution by the United Nations arrived.
So without being a genius, Ignazio might understand that although his country had intervened in support of the local government, it had made in an invasion of a sovereign state without authorization by the United Nations.
That is, an act of war.
Some studies have suggested that because of the latter about 35,000 civilians died in Afghanistan, mostly women and children, a number that Ignazio knew.
If Ignazio was the Italian Defense Minister, he would have the obligation to not ignore anything about that.
Otherwise, it would be too good to call him ignorant in the sense that ignores

Berlusconi and the Vatican: the scandal Family Day

Stories and News No. 305

First a necessary introduction: this blog does not forget.
Or at least it tries not to.
Moreover, it would also be hard to ignore what the web still shows to those interested in history.
I am talking about the recent history, not the Stone Age.
For this reason I have not been among those who have rejoiced at the new Gianfranco Fini and so I have now not become supporter of the Vatican if the bishops too are worried about Berlusconi’s scandals, asking for more law and morality.
After what we read on internet in the phone tapping and now thanks to last night's episode of Annozero, many others begin to worry about.
However, all this only recent concerning makes me angry.
Silvio was convenient while he made laws for the family, isn’t it? The latter collected and turned a blind eye, or rather both.
Should we get into the mess bunga bunga room to know that this man has a questionable moral?!
Now that the rot is coming out - and I think we have not seen anything yet - they ask morality.
The morality, dear priests, is not something to ask, but to live.
Otherwise it happens to read that in these days the Irish channel RTE has submitted a letter from 1997 by the Vatican to the bishops of Ireland, with a formal request not to report cases of child abuse in Church to the police.
Vatican and Berlusconi, Berlusconi and the Vatican.
Thinking of this diabolic marriage, as what it was between the church and Giulio Andreotti, some pictures came to my mind…

The Story:

Once upon a time there was the Family Day


A perfect day for precious friendships…


An ideal opportunity to reach an agreement…


A moment of joy…


And love…


Then by chance the altars get discovered…


Fortunately, there is still the satire, one of the few remaining Italian eyes that do not forget what they see…

Italy of Bunga Bunga and the poor and unemployed

Stories and News No. 304

Two news items have particularly caught my attention today.
The first is yet another video posted by Silvio Berlusconi to his promoters of freedom, this time focused on the prosecutors which are investigating on him in relation the Ruby case.
The second, the last but not the least, is called Noi Italia (We Italy) and is the Istat (most important Italian statistic researchers) report, with aggregate data about our country in the year 2009.
Reading the text of the message by our prime minister and giving just a look at the numbers that emerge from Istat research, especially those related to the growing number of poor families and unemployed, I see a further evidence of the shameful short circuit between the prime minister, his paid by the State servants and the real world; the real world that suffers and pays more than all the infamous policy of recent years.
There are two Italys: that who attends the spectacle of Bunga Bunga and the one who remains out.
It has no money to eat, let alone to pay the ticket.
Thus, combining the letter from Silvio and the dramatic Istat report, here it comes out the absurdity in which we live today…

The Story:

Dear friends,
today the Senate and the Chamber of Deputies have confirmed their confidence in the Government and have done so on a sensitive and very important issue for citizens to report to the Minister of Justice Alfano status in Italy.
In 2009, families in poverty are on the 10.8 per cent of households, with 7.8 million poor individuals, 13.1 percent of the population.
I finally had the opportunity to read the 389 pages of the last real judicial persecution, the twenty-eighth in 17 years, that Milan prosecutor's office notified me with great fanfare and wanted a few days ago.
All this could happen to anyone of you.
Absolute poverty involves the 4.7 per cent of households, for a total of 3.1 million people.
That's why I want to do the job right away, with such conclusive evidence, but judges non-partisan and not with PM who want to use this incident as an instrument of political struggle.
These raids against people who were not even investigated, but only witnesses were carried out with utter contempt for the dignity of their person and their privacy. They have been abused, mocked, forced to undress, bodily searched, photographed all his clothes, seized all the money, credit cards, jewelry, phones and computers, were taken to police headquarters, some not even able to call a lawyer and held there from eight in the morning until eight at night without eating and without being able to have any contact with the outside.
The inactivity rate of the population between 15 and 64 years amounted to 37.6 per cent, among the highest in Europe. It is particularly high the inactivity female (48.9 percent).
The rate of youth unemployment (15-24 years) is equal to 25.4 per cent and higher than the EU average (19.8 percent).
I am peaceful, serene, even be you, because the truth always wins.

Silvio Berlusconi
And millions of mocked people…
