Will someone please think of the children?

without comments

helen-lovejoyWill someone please think of the children?” With Helen Lovejoy’catchprase,  Matt Groening summarizes very well this kind of moral alarmism that easily finds room in italian politics.

But how true is this unselfish concern for the children?
Gabriella Carlucci showed an incredible gift of synthesis in response to this question.

The former Parliamentary Showgirl, already known for having crashed a bus with her Porsche and escaping in the woring direction, for the proposed law against anonymity on the Internet, for being caught writing this proposal four hands with the President of Univideo in clear conflict of interest, for her poor figure against Nobel Prize Sheldon Glashow vilifying the work of Professor Maiani, for having publicly criticized the notoriously low salaries of Italian parliamentarians , for trying to break a camera and be able to break two microphones of three “correspondant” from a satirical TV show (long sentence, ain’t it?)  decided to strengthen her curriculum of smart speeches with this phrase:

I wish that as soon as your son will have access to Facebook he’d get intercepted by pedophiles and that they meet him at school … I really wish you!

The sentence was given to Alessandro Gilioli during a conference on freedom of the network. This is the video.

People not understand the Italian might be wondering which offensive words of Alexander Gilioli could have lead to such a response. He is saying:

“Internet is the reality, is the environment. Internet is like my house, or your house. Putting a policeman at every corner won’t save our children”

Italy: Millionaire fraud and casino fun at only 800 euro

without comments

Would you like to steal two million euros and get away with a paltry fine of just 800?Please Visit Italy!

Today’s hero is Happy Spagnuolo, born in Potenza on  May 12 1949 and resident in Turin in Via Pavese 20, struck off in 2006 all year of financial promoters.

From 2001 to 2004 has circumvented some thirty people, bringing home about one million and seven hundred thousand euro, finished in a maze of bank accounts, but especially at the casino in Saint Vincent.

Through bargaining , the legal principle of “Continuazione” and to the “Indulto” (all words that do not exist outside Italy)  even one day in prison and only 800 euro fine.

The indulto is basically this: “jails are full:  let’s set some delinquent free”.

In Italy you are having fun, not boring like in other countries where a nice guy like this would end in jail.
