Italy is in every sense the most rediculous nation in Europe. I'm sure these clowns will vote again for Berlusconi. What a stupid nation!

As we did in the Football World Championship with your ridicolous and flown team, so we are doing about your criminal governement: we piss over! Every time we have a war in Europe you are the firestarter! You must respect our country. Now we will teach you what is the real democracy by Five Stars. Also your fat-ass woman, will go home.

I don't care of yr hate, sexism, racism, ignorance, white trash mentality, vulgar language.

Everyone who voted for berlusconi is stupid. yes.

Here millions voted for Grillo, while in germany u keep on voting the banksters' system, as sold out u r, culturally ALWAYS lagging back.

We have more art, fast cars, better sea, landscapes, we don't eat sour krautz,

about the war, when we Italians see sht like mussolini hitler and the likes of yrself, no support!
During the Roman empire it was different, the germans never had it.
what your nazis did in the 40s was a shame for humanity, your fault!

GovtS are bad, very bad in Italy, dictatorship. we blame them,
now I think we should get out of EU so you will parasite on sb else.

Hey, almost everything is nicer in Italy rather than in germany.

M5S: "Niente 'onorevole' e divieto di 'talk show'. Niente 'onorevole'. Gli eletti dei 5
Stelle in Parlamento - ben 108 deputati e 54 senatori - dovranno optare per il termine 'cittadino' o 'cittadina', declinare gli inviti ai talk show tv, spiegare giornalmente le votazioni svolte negli emicicli di Camera e Senato con video pubblicati sul canale youtube del Movimento. Queste alcune regole d'oro del 'Codice di comportamento' degli eletti in Parlamento tra le file dei grillini, redatto un paio di mesi fa in vista dell'approdo a Roma delle 'truppe' 5 Stelle.

Italy need Mussolini.

Italians are weak and need to wake up.

Down with Jewish Bolshevik lies.

Save us IL DUCE.....save Italy and Europe from Jewish Marxist lies.

Of course Italian comedians don't like sour Krauts. Unhappy Germans are a very poor audience.

Does this qualify me to run for political office in Italy? You are depressing the stock market with your economic problems. Even though I am currently retired, I may need to get a job.

Consider this an application!

The prices of stocks in the US are manipulated by bankers and Wall Street for their own purposes. Right now the stock prices of two very large, profitable, well managed companies are depressed. This is very difficult for small, retired investors.

From here (the US) it looks like the Euro is a disaster for Southern Europe. My ancestry is mostly Mediterranean so it's upsetting to see these financial problems.

I was joking about the job. Politics in Southern Europe is becoming strange as people have no where good to turn to for solutions.

To be more clear, what is really upsetting is to watch people having these problems and to not be able to do anything to help them. While the internet makes us all neighbors, I can do little to help others except to join Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, etc., make small donations and sign petitions.

It's not fun to watch people in Greece and Iran die without medication while the Afghani engage in honor killings.
