Don Abbondio’s words


New words. Don’t you feel the need for new words? Aren’t you tired of The Bridge over the Straits, the TAV, of Mastella, of D’Alema, of Alitalia that is about to go bust in 6 months every 6 months, of the political use of referendum, of public works, of ANAS, of construction work that starts and then stops, of Tronchetti, of Benetton, of wire taps, of laws to prevent wiretaps, of the public deficit, of conflict of interests, of the reform of TV and radio, of Authorities that haven’t a shred of authority, of names of politicians that are young at 50 and at age 70 are in the fullness of their career, of Scaroni, of privatised monopolies with the blessing of strong powers and of the rotten salons.

Words, the same words. The same faces. The same journalists with the same interviews. A daily nightmare.
This government had the opportunity to use new words, to reanimate the country. To throw out a scream. Words have a life of their own. They create hope, they become reality. They move people.

New words, prodifassinodalemarutellibertinottipecorarodipietrodiliberto pick up a vocabulary of the Italian language. Look for words; the ones that you never use, and shout them out. Just for once, perform an act of courage.

There’s need for pure air and not for following the elephant. Some tell me that when you meet him in Parliament you shit yourselves. Unblessed ones, this is not the reason you were voted in. Not to become elephantised excrement on behalf of others. Otherwise how can the nomination of Mastella be explained? Famous for his experience in jurisprudence, famous innovator.

Le Procure non hanno la carta e i fax e lui, conto terzi, si indigna per le telefonate di quattro delinquenti e non spende una parola per i 25 ragazzi incarcerati senza processo da più di tre mesi a San Vittore. Parole nuove. Anche in questo referendum, per farsi votare, si va al rilancio, a chi taglia più deputati.
Prosecutors have no paper and no fax and he, on behalf of others, gets indignant about telephone calls made by 4 delinquents and doesn’t say a word for the 25 young people in prison without trial for three months at San Vittore. New words. Even in this referendum, to get votes, aiming at a relaunch, about who can cut out the highest number of parliamentarians of the Lower House.

But do you think we are stupid? We need to cut out much more than 100 parliamentarians. We have 700,000 State pen pushers in excess and whole regions of Italy barely subsisting thanks to the mafias that govern in place of the State, with the State and prevent any development. We are talking about tens of millions of people who are supported. New words Prodi. New words.

The country, the one that I see in the mass demonstrations with the little politicians of the townprovinceregion shut in their offices and peeping out from behind the blinds, this country needs courage, happiness, challenges, innovation, immediate action, tough action, without discounts against the monopolies of the media, of telecommunications, (Gentiloni are you still there or have you already resigned?) of the motorwaysmotorwayservicestations, of electricity.

Of a relaunch of universities and research. Of important and symbolic gestures like the nomination of famous international people as consultants to the government. The few that we have, like Rubbia, Piano.

Without new words this government will not last. We have chosen the least worst, not the photocopy.

If Bossi really move to Switzerland he will see
with his own eyes what means to be considered "terrone" ;-);-);-)

Speaking of the political use of referenda, it's good news that Berlusconi's devolution was soundly defeated. Auguri, italiani! Let us hope that Bossi makes good on his threat and does move to Switzerland.
