Signatures from 25 April in Rome


In the beyond-the-grave media silence last week I went with a truck to take the referendum signatures to the Constitutional Court in Rome. Unloaded by hand like a true port-labourer. Someone helped me but I did my bit of the work. Crikey. The 60 boxes, sprayed with anti-moth, are now lined up in the cellars of the Palazzo. In October there’ll be the decision as to whether the referenda are admissible according to the Constitution. If they pass muster there’ll be a count and the validation of the signatures.
It’s the second popular democratic act performed by those who follow the blog, the MeetUps, the free organisations of citizens, the non-party civic lists in ONLY 8 months.
8 September 2007 seems like a far off date. Distant. Since then, all sorts of things have happened. The government has fallen. Two across-the-board business groups have formed, PDL and PDminusL. For each action of the movement there has been an equal and opposite action. To separate collections of refuse, the reply has been incinerators. To a Clean Up Parliament, there’s an increase in the number of those under investigation and those convicted. To the reform of the election law to choose our own candidates, there’s been a “vaffanculo”. And, in fact, with the proposal to extend the appointment of the deputies (lovers, wives, mafia people) by the party secretaries also to the European Parliament. To the cancellation of the Maroni law (but named after Biagi) with an increase in the number of precarious workers and deaths (assassinations) at work. To the request to reduce the military presence with an increase in military spending, to the new base at Vicenza, to the commitment in Afghanistan.
To the abolition of the shameful laws that stop any conviction with the delirium of the psycho-dwarf and his intentional, pigheaded, stubborn destruction of the laws and of the magistracy.
They noticed that the walls are starting to give way. The PDL and PDminusL business committee has decided to construct a big wall. To ignore the requests of millions of people. Disgusted from the heights of their sovereignty. The equal and opposite action, the wall of the post-communists and of the evergreenP2-ists, has produced its effects even on information. Of the movement, and of Beppe Grillo, they either don’t talk or they demonize. We are a “subcultural” product as has written the great intellectual, Massimo Giannini in Repubblica. Irascible, foaming at the mouth. That’s how we are described by the reformists, rationals, intellectuals.
After 25 April, the European Community has confirmed that Rete4 must let Europa7 have its frequencies, that the Gasparri law has to be changed. There would be no need for a referendum or for a VDay every day to change Italy. It would be enough to apply the laws and to have honest representatives in Parliament. In September I will ask to present to the Senate the three popular laws signed by 350,000 citizens as laid down by law. Convicts out of Parliament, choice of candidates, a maximum of two terms of office.
Have you noticed? We’ve got one result: our employees no longer laugh and Berlusconi no longer tells jokes. He seems to be devoured by Saint Anthony’s fire {shingles} They never give up, neither do we.
P.S. The wall has its cracks. I repeat: The wall has its cracks.

i've never seen a more suddenly troll-infested website in 4 years surfing. there is a vibe about the gibberish that is so bizarre, it makes i think the content is computer-generated mashup.

feed in a bunch of 'polemic' and 'controversial, (if possible 'conspitacy theoretical'), click on the 'jumble' button, and voila! all noise, no signal!

what i don't understand is also how few commenters there are, if this is really the 5th most read blog in the world. maybe the italian version, but this one?

what's also weird, (other than beppe NEVER stopping by to reply to his replies), is that the trolls arrived within days after the comments had suddenly started to get really informative and interesting...whereas they were only so-so before.

enquiring minds...

When a person makes himself annoying by spewing inanities at me, I tell him to shut-up or/and fuck-off or simply walk away from the moron. I think it's time to tell a few people on this blog to fuck-off. They're stepping all over other people's freedom of expression. Why the fuck is this shit allow to go on? These morons have been tolerated for too long. And don't tell me it's about freedom of expression because it's not. Get the morons out of here.

I've lost interest in this blog: the English sections stinks!

Until this moronic cretin of andrea dino stops blabbering like a friggin' maniac, I think I'll just stay away.
