Born in the USA


Who knows why the Red Brigades have appeared in the newspapers. In TV. They have been muttered about, evoked, by the mouths of our snail-like employees. For days at all hours BEFORE the Vicenza demonstration. Identikit. Arms and five-pointed stars. A resurrection that not even Jesus and Lazarus could have done together.
And then, afterwards a peaceful demonstration. Really great. In which it was said loud and clear that the Italians donít want American war bases. War Airports. Nuclear bombs for war. Aircraft that take off to go bombing.
AFTER the Vicenza demonstration. During which nothing happened. No one was injured. There were no incidents. In spite of the climate created by the media. You could have expected a second Genoa G8. After the demonstration, the Red Brigades no longer exist. Iíve looked for them in the newspapers. In the magazines. Even on TG2 in the night. Nothing. Defeated in a week.
After Vicenza, the newspapers gave space to the voices for the confidence vote. On Afghanistan. Itís always a question of the Americans. A vote that in another country would not have been the determinant in a vote of confidence. At the most a bit of tension with the ally. It brought down the government. Who knows why?
Andreottinoglobal has said, only now, that the Vicenza base is useless. ďWhat need is there to double up the base? Whatís the need for even more military structures? To put whom there? To defend us from whom?
Certainly not to defend us from terrorism because you donít fight terrorism from the airports.Ē Who knows why? DíAlema has at last criticized the position of the United States in relation to the Calipari murder. Who knows why?
Now the Americans proclaim to the whole world that the extradition of the agents who abducted Abu Omar in Milan. Violating every Italian law. They wonít even think about it. Who knows why?
Questions that will stay without a reply in an American protectorate.

Hello there,
I stated it many times, first the bend you over, give you a tube of KY jelly, then they tax you to death, and when you keel over or shut down your business because not competitive with the rest of the world, they wonder why in Italy no-one wants to open up Business activities anymore.
Even the established activities are shutting down or moving elsewhere to stay alive.
Meanwhile, billions are piling up from Excess Taxation while they are unsure what to do with the welcomed money.
Are these guys for real?
What a f**ked up place has Italy become, and you wonder if they will do something about it?
Without consequences for them, donít hold your breath, they will ride the pony until they can or until You will allow them to ride it.
Be sure of this, and not necessarily in that order either.

Hello there,
When Italian will figure out that this Political Class is not working for them?
When a crisis arise no one stands up (Is their job!) and comes up with a possible solution, they all look at their own pocket book and the chair they are sitting on and decide appropriately.
Corruption is at third world level, although (Berlusconi 7 time guilty, acquitted for Expiration of Terms in all of them, the Campania region under Left Government in 14 years wasted billion in garbage and every Politicians is laughing about it?).
What am I missing?
While Italy worries about a journalist kidnapped in Afghanistan (Will be freed donít worry Italy will pay the usual ransom and he will live happy ever after) the current government has passed a 35 Billion reshuffling the Budget, increased your taxes, Alitalia is for Sale, Enel is shopping in Spain, Telecom is spiraling out of control in the abysses of virtual financing, the Agency of the Government are watching carefully the OIL Company Telephone Company Airline Company Food Product Company etc (All of these Company for gauging, you know already nothing will come out of it, guaranteed as usual).
Who is watching the Government and the Government Agencies?
They just bicker with each other like usual, while the Country already trailing Europe and the rest of the world in each and every aspect of the Civilized world.
High Tech?
The only field Italy does not trail anyone is, Incompetence and Complacency?
Wake up and shout it out loud, these Politicians are stonewalling the Country back to the Stone Ages and you with it.

U want and expect too much from Francesco...
"Think Francesco, think"

In order to "think", some gray material is needed, and I am not too 'shure' if any is available in there...
Good on U, Enrico.

Vorrei capire una cosa ma la tim quando fa i conti amministrativi nelle fatture degli utenti abbonati per le varie promozioni quali navigazione internet tramite rete gprs chi verifica i loro errori amministrativi o informatici come eí successo a me nella bolletta del 4 bimestre 2006 dove nella fattura hanno dapprima scritto una somma da pagare in euro successivamente dopo 4 mesi mi hanno rimborsato senza darmi nessuna spiegazione nonostante le mie segnalazioni? Stessa cosa si eí verificata per la bolletta del 1 bimestre 2007 tuttíora resto in attesa ma con grosso punto interrogativo e mi sorge ancora un dubbio i conti amministrativi tim chi li verifica? siamo sempre noi utenti a pagare il danno di errori amministrativi. A questo punto noi utenti ci sentiamo davvero vulnerabili a qualsiasi fattura stratosferica.

I do not want them and I am italian. It's not enough but there's a simple question: deeply thinking, does it exist a nation that really want foreign military base on its land? I would answer no, no country would want... but if it is forced to, it will accept (politically) it as a rule of "strength". pardonaiz moi pour mon anglais et francais...

what are these military bases doing in Italy? Are they necessary to fight Osama and his ragtag band of phantom fighters in the perpetual war on terror?
Think Francesco, think.

Dear Mr. Grillo,

how can you be shure that Italians donít want American bases?

Best regards,
Francesco Venier

Caro Sig. Grillo,

come fa ad essere sicuro che gli Italiani non vogliono le basi americane?

Francesco Venier
