Arse heads RESET!


RESET! The members of the Lower House of Parliament have the right to a pension after 30 months in the House. Thus we can be sure that Parliament will stay together until the end of 2008. There are more than 400 members of Parliament who are new to the Parliament.
They are all aiming to get a 30-month pension. The other employees have already got their pensions in their pockets.
In a couple of years, Napolitano will be able to dissolve what he likes with or without “conati anti secessionisti” {impulses against those wanting to split off from Italy} It’s up to him. The Italians, if they survive, get their pension after 35 years.
Thus between us and our employees there’s an obvious disparity of treatment.
Here, dear Employee of the Council, Prodi, we’re getting a tax a minute, but the members of the Upper and Lower Houses never pay any taxes. Why do we have to pay for them as well?
Either the pensions are available for everyone after 30 months, or the parliamentarians adjust to be like everyone else.
I know that our employees will not accept this call. So in this case I’m going to start up an initiative for a popular law. I’m going to do it together with the law that reduces to 2 terms of office for each employee in Parliament (with backdating). RESET!
The pension of the parliamentarians is a minimum shame. One of those that is whispered. Trying to not make it noticeable. And to take home the bounty.
Privileges for them. Sacrifices for the Italians. But these employees are really TV walk-ons. They like to see themselves.
They are always there to see themselves talk. The public in the room, the “meet ups” present, should then ask them this question: “Don’t you feel shame getting a pension after only 30 months?”
Record questions and answers (or rapid departures) and send them to this blog. The videos will all be published in a new ad hoc area: “Arse heads” RESET!

Ciao ,

Ho gradito tutti i commenti fatti al mio post , sicuramente non voglio dire che l' America è il paese di Bengodi , assolutamente no è il paese anche delle cotraddizioni .

Si se non hai l'assicurazione medica buona sei di serie B .

Ma sono le possiblità che hai che in Italia non ci sono .

Prendiamo per esempio il supermecato davanti a casa mia .

Tutte le persone che lavorano a recuperare i carelli e a metterti le cose nel carello sono ragazzi con prolemi mentali o ritardati .

Dandogli questo lavoro semplice gli preservano la dinità e cercano di inserirli nella società .

Si magari li pagheranno pochissimo non lo so ma almeno fanno qualcosa si sentono utili .

In Italia ci è voluta una legge speciale per obbligare le ditte ad assumere persone appartenenti alle" categorie protette " e magari le assumono per tre mesi e poi le cacciano .

Allora è vero in Italia siamo protetti e ma alla fine nessuno pensa a queste semplici cose .

Certo in tutto il mondo e nella nostra vita c'è sempre il bene ed il male , ma penso che se i nostri politici venissero veramente dal popolo ed avessero viaggiato un p'ò staremmo meglio in Italia .

Alla prossima

For Pierluca and Amon,my esperience of U.s.a. has been positive as well,but that doesn't close my eyes to the reality that lots of people in the U.s.a. live in poverty,and on the streetlight is a reality that can happen to anybodies can be sued for farting on the street,from anybody,if you do not have a good health insurance,then is a problem,about Italian with long faces,and american without long faces,maybe their foreign policy and they globalisation are the cause of long faces,and you can see is not only in Italy,but lots of other country as well,now I am not against anybody and no country ,I am for fairness for all in the all world,call me delusional or a dreamer ,that how I fell about it,coming back to you guys,if you have a chance to travel a litle in U.S.A you will see that is not all pink roses,ciao

I have something new for you my friends which will come up soon after this discussion about pension is over.....
Judges salaries...(they will want an increase...!!!)
Keep your ears and eyes open, this will be the next topic....Don't ask me how I know...:o))

Giacomo...don't you worry your children they will have many professions to choose from...!! :o)

ciò che ha detto Pierluca Chiodelli è talmente vero...

anch'io sentivo le notizie dai telegiornali italiani riguardo agli USA... ma quando vieni a vivere qua è tutta un altra cosa...
non c'è paragone...

la semplicità di certe cose lascia a bocca aperta...

io personalmente mi stupisco ogni volta dei semafori intelligenti che ci sono nel mio paesino... fanno risparmiare un sacco di tempo e di personale... sannò quando tu sei in linea, e ti mettono verde subito se non c'è nessun'altro che passa...

semplice ma efficacie...

Let's not forget that parlamentarians earning is called "indennity". In other words, they want us to believe that being a politicians in this country is such a bloody and tiresome job that they need an "indennity" in return (otherwise what? Would they leave the job!?). Shame on them! First of all, I can't really grasp the reasons why they should get an indennity at all, not to talk about a pension. Being a politicians is NOT a job! Pension is what I will get in the future if I have been paying my contributions in the past (for at least 35 years). Do they pay for their pensions? I doubt it. Pensions for parliamentarians should be abrogated, NOW! Politicians should be not allowed to seat more than twice in parliament. Leaders who are defeated in elections must go home! They must go back to their jobs! No more politicians for life. We need new people and new ideas! These guys are zombies. Do not allow them to bite you!

we do have a poet in our mist a failed Dante Alighieri.........going back to the topic,I think it is a shamefull situation,if they rase their wages,the all contry should have one as well,what I wonder is who is auditing all the exspences made with public money? are they made public?do they have a budget?is anybody checking that the exspences are for the public interested and not personal only?

Remember the Gremlin???
(Nice try "Old Fashioned")!!!

The one that likes pikles suffers from hemorrhoids and has a split personality syndrome??
Well... he is also a fan of
Dusty Springfield... (Thomas Crown Affair-1968)

I think we have to rename him and call him
"Dr. Zaius" (Abuser of human rights) or even better "Ape Man"....!!!

Ciao A tutti ,

Non mi dilunghero' in complimenti e elogi per quello che beppe grillo , fa' ogni giorno per portare informazione a tutti noi . Bravo e grazie !!

Giungo quindi al mio commento ..

Circa 5 mesi fa' mi sono trasferito con mia moglie da Milano a Boston per motivi di lavoro .

Questo mi ha dato l'occasione di conoscere meglio la realta' americana e tutte le immense sfacciettature .

Non sono mai stato un sostenitore degli stati uniti anzi direi soprattutto un fervente oppositore , ma per molte cose devo ricredermi .

Inanzittuto le persone sono in generale piu' educate e disponibili certo c'e' di tutto ma non si vedono quei musi lunghi come da noi in Italia .

Il denaro qui ha un valore non e' come in Italia che uno si sveglia una mattina e aumenta i prezzi .

La concorrenza e' vera almeno nelle piccole cose non parlo di lobby .

Ho sempre pensato che gli americani erano degli spreconi invece , mi trovo in un villaggetto dove piu' recicli e meno paghi .

Mi sembra di ricordare un tuo spettacolo , dove dicevi che i cossonetti dovevano avere un microchip .
Qui e' molto piu' semplice per le cose reciclabili ti regalano un bel contenitore blu e non paghi niente .

Per tutto quello che non e' reciclabile devi comprare devi sacchetti apposta grandi o piccoli del tuo comune .

Quindi il risultato e' piu' recicli e meno spendi un sistema che a Genova adrebbe alla grande .

La mia sopresa e' la semplicita' di questa cosa .

Ma come e' che in Italia nessuno lo mette in

pratica ?....

- Altra cosa mi diverto un casino a guardare il telegiornale Italiano . Parlano sempre degli stati uniti .. e se facciamo questo li piacera' o non gli piacera' . Ma questi politici Italiani ed e' comune a tutti e due gli schieramenti ... hanno finito di usare la scusa degli stati uniti .... Qui dell' Italia non ne parlano mai anzi ne parlano ma del vino della toscana e dei formaggi . Non gliene frega niente se c'e' prodi o berlusconi .

Non mi dilungo in altre cose al momento postero' ancora.....

The Windmills of Your Mind
Like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel,
ever ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel,
Like a snowball down a mountain or a carnival balloon
Like a carousel that's turning running rings around the moon,
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping past the minutes of its face,
And the world is like an apple whirling silently in space,
Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind.
Like a tunnel that you follow to a tunnel of its own,
Down a hollow to a cavern where the sun has never shone,
Like a door that keeps revolving in a half-forgotten dream,
Or the ripples from a pebble someone tosses in a stream,
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping past the minutes of its face,
And the world is like an apple whirling silently in space,
Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind.
Keys that jingle in your pocket, words that jangle in your head;
Why did summer go so quickly? Was it something that I said?
Lovers walk along a shore and leave their footprints in the sand;
Is the sound of distant drumming just the fingers of your hand?
Pictures hanging in a hallway and the fragments of a song,
Half-remembered names and faces, but to whom do they belong?
When you knew that it was over, were you suddenly aware
That the autumn leaves were turning to the color of her hair?
Like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel,
Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel,
As the images unwind, like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind.

Giacomo: the advantages you outlined apply to most politicians around the world. These scoundrels have the uncanny ability to became aware of the perks enjoyed by politicians in other Countries and quickly adopt them for their own benefit. I too marvel at the ability of politicians to get away literally with murder and I think that the rest of us must be suffering from a kind of mental castration to allow this status quo to endure.

The Best Profession to pursue?
It always run through my mind if in my life I did make the right choices, although lately also because I am thinking for my kids so they will make the right choices hopefully with my help. So I am mentally incorporating al the news I read or run into on a daily basis while the mainframe (My personal brain) compile all these information into a list of possible choices mostly based on my real life experiences and information publicly available anywhere. I couldn’t help but noticing that here in Italy the high level of injuries equally spread across a wide range of professions with only few exceptions.
Upon few more consideration and variables within this compilation of Professions, obviously come the salary, job security, retirement, education pre-requisite, job environment, perks, profession status, professional responsibilities and last but not least how danger is the profession. When I say dangerous is a profession I mean not only from a physical point of view, but from a legal stand point (Being sued in court, financially sued for mismanagement etc) but from all sort of sides I could only begin to imagine. After having done this kind of sorting through all this variables and possible variations suddenly the light bulb light up in my head “The perfect Profession can only be one” that was it and here is the way of it.
Questions? Response!

1) Education Requirement? No requirements, just political affiliation and right connections.
2) Salary? Excellent typically between 10-20 times average Joe Blow.
3) Job Security? Perfect, once in this profession opportunity are endless even for life.
4) Job Environment? Only the best things in life for this profession, everything is on Company Expense.
5) Retirement? Awesome, can retired after 5 years on the job.
6) Perks? As your heart desire and in case you do not desire it someone else will and it will be applicable to you as well.
7) Profession Status? You will bear honor in front of your name.
8) Profession Responsibilities? None what so ever, the Company can’t be sued by definition of the law.
9) Professional Danger? Physically and legally none what so ever as well this is slam dunk!

I couldn’t help myself being ironic in all these answers, but by the same talking I honestly could not find in the Italian history a more truthful answer than the one I actually wrote down.
So moral of this story is that in my life I did (As I suspected since the beginning) make the wrong choice of profession, and rightfully the smart people that made the right choice since the beginning are thumbing their noses at me right now.
But now that I am middle age and hopefully sapient in the way of the world (Italy particularly) I will recommend my children do not make the same mistakes I did and live happily ever after.
The correct answer for the Perfect Profession is:
If you guessed good for you now you know where to point your kids like I will.
Thanks for the opportunity

In Italy it will not happen. I'm very pessimistic about the italian aptitude for rebellion. :-(

What was I telling you...???
Do you remember talking about this close a few weeks ago???
Obviously government policies are dictated by international "brains" according to international
Fortunately for the time being it was rejected from the majority of the Greek parliament after a big reaction from the Greek people.
I hope the same thing happens in Italy too...!!!

Does it really need comment???????

Posted by: gianfranco roncolato | November 11, 2006 07:26 AM

Dear Beppe,
I really think we should somehow vote on line and get rid of all those pimps, I feel embarrassment looking at what is going on in a moment when everyone should do its own due part..
