Justice Time Frames

Which comes first, the cause or the effect? The response to this question is fundamental. If you answer “the effect” you are lost. Italy is the daughter of unknown causes and undesired effects.
The few people who denounce the causes are themselves considered to be effects to be removed as soon as possible.
The effects of the causes have become our life style, products of the lack of social, environmental and economic policies. The precarious workers are an effect, the destruction of the environment is an effect, the Italian Stock Exchange is an effect.
No one raises the question about them any more. The effects without cause are the preferred tools of institutional powers: Consob, Parliament, Confindustria. They are bomb-proof alibis.
Travaglio has justly denounced the gagging of journalists with the new intercept legislation. But even here, we’re talking of the effects and not the causes. The publication of the intercepts has eliminated Consorte, Ricucci, and Fazio.
The same outcome would have resulted from a speedy trial or rather a normal trial. Free information, the little that is around, is becoming a substitute for trials that never end. And if they have no end they have no sentence.
The Justice reform must start here: the certainty of the trial, that no longer exists. For a simple argument in the condominium, you can wait 18 years. To set free and unblemished Berlusconi 13 years. The judges had even forgotten what they had to judge him for.
He always gets by because they confuse him with a cause, whereas he is only a collateral effect of the disintegration of Italy.
Yesterday I was informed of the date of the appeal hearing asked for by Fininvest against me, after they lost at the first hearing.
It will be at 9:00am on 3 June 2010. I’ve asked them to bring this forward, partly because my lawyer has an advanced age. They told me that they will do something: perhaps they will make it start at 8:30 am.

Hello Joe

As you can see from the last news, in USA not even important people can get out from Justice.
Paris Hilton finally got caught out of place and will go to jail for 45 days for driving with a suspended license.
I leave to your imagination what would've happened to somebody of her weight in a similar situation in Italy.

At this time I'm enjoying my time here in US and I don't even think about going back to Italy which a nice place for vacation and a very inconvenient one when you have to live there dealing with taxes, bureaucracy and other BS.

Maybe another time.

The Law is (not) equal for everybody.
The evolution of a country's system has a parabola which is now in the descending stage in a lot of so-called civilized western countries.
Not only the system must change but also the mentality of the people which is now used to be fed by a hand that is getting old and gangrenous.

Time to change (or, as Beppe says, to reset).

The boyfriend story does not ring true...

Sorry, but I don't think I can help you neither professionally nor otherwise....
You know... the first rule in my job is that the patient shouldn't woo the therapist and vice versa.
Also, my boy friend is very jealous and I'm very very very much in love with him!
So, as you see, there is no "trippa pè gatti" (I can't translate it!)
