Those with previous convictions in Parliament, mafia people in prison

15 years separate us from 1992. The mafia has gone from the season of the bombs to the season of the pax sociale. In this period the bosses have ended up in prison with a certain frequency. Every two/three years the capture of a bosses’ boss. In the mean time the politicians under investigation stay free.
Paolo Borsellino said: Politics and mafia are two powers that live under the control of the same territory, they either are at war or they come to an agreement.”
And that’s how it was, but the agreement signed up to at the beginning of the 1990’s between the mafia and a part of the politicians must not have been very favourable to the mafia families. For them the prison is long lasting, for the others nice houses, beautiful women, Dom Perignon and TV appearances. And when will the families finish?
Perhaps it’s time for the mafia to review the contract and change some of the clauses. It’s not to be tolerated that the mafia people, after risking their life and being personally exposed, end up in prison for years, while the politician gets away scot-free. To the politicians with previous convictions and those who are prescritti, there’s Parliament, to the mafia people, if they are lucky, there’s l'Ucciardone {a prison in Palermo}
Lirio Abbate and Peter Gomez have written a book called: “I complici”. Abbate has an escort. He can’t be protected from the mafia, but to keep away from the untouchables. He has revealed too many names and surnames of politicians, parliamentarians, and State officials. The ones that in prison will never go.
I’m giving a few lines from the introduction to the book:
"When the newspapers (very few) and the citizens discover, with a delay of years with respect to the top politicians, the names of the Parliamentarians, regional deputies, Ministers, local cabinet members, and mayors who frequent (or have not just occasionally frequented) the bosses and those convicted for affairs relating to the mafia, the reaction of their colleagues is zero. Or rather there is a reaction: they shout that there’s a plot. The principle of elementary prudence that in mature democracies leads one to exclude and marginalize those who have questionable friendships is never triggered in Italy.”

The book "I Complici" by Lirio Abbate and Peter Gomez is published by Fazi editore.

I'm done defending all the time the shit that goes on in my country.
Whenever somebody asks me about Italy and how nice would be to live there because of History, Culture, etc..... I answer that the main Italian business is Mafia with its 90 annual billions Euro, more than any other big Italian company and perhaps the country itself.
From this point on, I want to see something from Italy, and mostly from our politicians, worthy of mention which will change the situation from the actual one, which I am very ashamed of, to something worth of mention and pride.
And this includes us Italians as well.
As John Kennedy said, "don't ask what your Country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your Country."

WHAT CAN I SAY.....MY POOR COUNTRY DOWN THE DRAIN !!!! WHO'S AT FAULT? WE CAN ONLY BLAME OURSELVES IF THINGS DON'T CHANGE, WE CAN CHANGE THE COURSE IF WE HAVE THE COURAGE TO KICK OUT THOSE BASTARDS WHO ONLY THINK ABOUT HOW TO INSURE THEIR MILLIONAIRE PENSIONS AND STEAL THE POPULATION'S MONEY DAY AFTER DAY. GRILLO, YOU STARTED WITH A LOUD BANG, WHERE ARE YOU? TAKE THE ITALIAN POPULATION TO THE STREETS AND STAY THERE UNTIL THE CLEAN UP IS DONE...THOSE BASTARDS NEED TO GET OUT AND GO TO HELL. THE POPULATION NEEDS A LEADER TO MAKE THEM UNDERSTAND THAT ONLY BY REVOLTING THEY HAVE A CHANCE.

FINCHE' IL POPOLO ITALIANO NON CAPISCE CAPISCE CHE C'E' BISOGNO DI UNA RIVOLTA POPOLARE, NON SI ARRIVERA' DA NESSUNA PARTE. CONTRO QUATTRO POTENTI DI MERDA DOBBIAMO AGIRE UNITI, SOLO COSI' CI POSSIAMO FAR SENTIRE

Hello everyone,
Let’s look at the big picture, this Government has beaten Italian to death with taxes, they say the deregulation has started and wealth has been redistributed.
Taking that for good, the stock market in 2007 is 5% lower (You lost) Telecom was sold to Telofonica Mr. Tronchetti walk away with Billions while TI stock is at approx 2 Euros (Mr. Tronchetti got 2.84 Euros, you lost again?).
Fiat went from 4 Euros 3 years ago to 20 today, IFIL (The agnelli’s investment company through fishy deals retained 30% of Fiat and the management is under investigation by Consob?) basically the Banks and the Agnelli made all the money and profits while now they invest outside of Italy, Russia, India, China, Poland thank you very much.
Italian Banks have consolidated, now three major one, Management and Furbetti Quartierino made loads of money while the stock holders got the shaft.
Banks account in Italy still cost twice as the rest of Europe, and the dear Politicians can say “We do have a Bank!”.
As for the Government that horrendous money swallowing machine, is so bloated with inefficiency, people that doesn’t work, hiring incompetent people by the thousand and wasting your money like there is no tomorrow.
My point is these Politicians acts like they are in control of the situation, although any reasonable person realizes they are just collecting big checks to act their part as long as you let them.
The world is laughing at Italy Institutions and is so blatant that these Idiots are in deep sheet that each and every one of them has already another job lined up, and just in case so much money stashed away not to have a worry for the rest of their miserable life.
Cheers to all of you, keep this guys up there, we shall see the results very very soon.
Thanks
