The final countdown

The pension of the Italians is getting further away. Every year the access bar is placed a little higher. And then higher still. And the ones raising the barrier are our dear employees. The reason is that thereís no longer any money.
We know that an example can do miracles. And the parliamentarians havenít been holding back. All for one and one for all. For them there is always money. After two and a half years from the beginning of the legislature they have the right to a pension. TWOANDAHALFYEARSSSSSSSSS!! We get the snakes and they get the ladders.
This Parliament has no authority to create a law on pensions. None. Any law is null. Thatís because of the par condicio {equality}. Two and a half years for everyone or thereís no discussion.
Prodi and the Sciupŗ will be able to alter pensions only after they have cleaned out their mouths of parliamentary privileges, even the ones already acquired.
From today thereís the ďFinal CountdownĒ active on the blog. A service for the citizens and for our employees.
Each day it will tell us how many days, hours, minutes, seconds have to go before they get their pension. Starting from 28 April 2006, the start of the legislature.
The parliamentarians will thus be able to stay organised to avoid an early government crisis and the citizens can start off their day with joy in the knowledge that at least someone will get a pension.
Perhaps some parliamentarians will feel shame. Those who want to dissociate themselves and renounce this disgusting privilege can do so by sending an email to: Their name will be published on the blog.

Hello there,
Usually swimming against the current is not recommended and although few times it works most of the time is futile and very energy consuming.
Therefore my recommendation to solve this Idiotic Problem is to use the current system to the full extents like these Idiots do over and over.
The Italian Institutions are a sham (I am trying not to be rude, otherwise it should be a f**ing mess!) so as an example You (Every individual!) donít file your Tax Return what do you think would happen!
If you are employed you already paid your taxes and therefore the effect will be that some money will not be returned to you (Deductions, in Italy 5 years at best!) while if you are Independent or have your business, just do as an immense number of Government Contractors do, fold the business or prepared yourself for the worst case (AN IRS audit, very unlikely especially reading the statistic for fiscal evasion today!).
So by the time you compile your chances to be caught, with the chances to go to court, your risk I believe is worth gambling on.
The current Government will not last as long, and so the next Government will initiate another amnesty and the merry go around will start again until everything will collapse on itself or the European Parliament will have to take over due to complete incompetence of the Italian Institutions!
Rest my case.

Hello there,
Folks you are scaring me, no comment what so ever not even the eternal supporter of Mr. Grillo end the Leftist of Rainbow Coalition?
Honestly I thought it would happen a whole lot sooner, but on the other hand the Idiotic Bunch did a good job in removing any legal/political/jurisdictional/popular way for the average Joe Blow to vent and remove these Idiots from power.
Although since Italy was founded and survive for so long (Amusingly?) on privilege for the few, the incompetent, the bureaucrats with no ideology, and plain and simple thievery now that the money is gone, credibility never materialized (After 59 Government even I start to wonder?) is time for Italians to do what they do best!
Donít pay the taxes that merely allow these idiots to bask in the sun!
Donít vote!
Do what they do day after day relentlessly, be aphetic and donít do nothing they ask you to do, because the power they have is the one they perceive they have, in reality they have none, and since the Justice (They abuse it every time!) works (Not!!!!!!!!!!) the way it works you can rest assure no consequences will be upon you for at least 10 years and by then they will be dead, gone or very nearly of secular age and therefore by definition not viable.
Make apathy works for you!
Call it Orange, Green/White/Red, Aritaliana, call it whatever just be passive and demonstrate that by just doing the same things they do daily, they will cannibalized each other, partyies coalition aggregation etc.
They have more to loose than you, you are already with the water at your chin, they instead are compiling the day to the bail out leaving you in dire strait (As usual, while they will retire in style at your expense!)
I wish for something more brutal and radical, although Italy is too close to Europe, and Italy is a very Civilized Country after all!
I would call it, The Passive Revolution!
Rest my case
