Pardon me while I laugh my ass off
My ancestry is Irish and Italian. I'd like to visit both countries in the future, but I'm thinking more and more that I should visit Italy first. Why? Because of remarks like this:
Umberto Bossi, Berlusconi's controversial reform minister, ended his boss's day in Strasbourg colorfully enough. According to the Daily Telegraph, Bossi told reporters that the EU elite were "filthy pigs" whose ambition was to "make paedophilia as easy as possible." And the euro? A "total flop." But then he came to his senses and explained that the EU was actually only "transforming vices into virtues" and "advancing the cause of atheism every day." When asked about he European arrest warrant — the latest example of EU laws that aspired to replace national laws — the described it as the next best thing to "dictatorship, deportation, and terror, instilling fear in the people," something that would lead to a Stalinist regime "multiplied by 25."
How can I not love a country who's leadership seems to take great pleasure in poking their fingers in the EU's collective eyes? Seriously, this man is making the speeches that I want to make!
Rome, Naples, Venice.... Oh yeah, I'm feeling it.
Oh, and by the way, remember the bombing of the UN building in Bagdad? Remember how the Barking Moonbats were screeching and hopping around claiming that it was the USA's fault?
Well, and independant panel just said "Nope".
"The main conclusion of the panel is that the current security management system is dysfunctional," said the 40-page report by former Finnish President Martti Ahtisaari, appointed by U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan to lead the investigation.
"The observance and implementation of security regulations and procedures were sloppy and noncompliance with security rules commonplace," the report said.
The probe also confirmed allegations made by U.S. officials -- that the United Nations in Baghdad had refused protection because it was uncomfortable with U.S. tanks and other security measures, wanting to distance itself from the occupation.
Consequently, U.N. officials asked the U.S. military to withdraw heavy equipment from the compound in the Canal Hotel, dismantle an observation post on the roof and remove obstacles and concertina wire from the access road where an orange flatbed truck approached and exploded, the report said.
You know, I don't want to kill everyone in the UN, I just want them OUT OF A JOB! The UN is nothing more than a cesspool of corruption, thugs, dictators, and two-legged parasites, and I'd love nothing more than to raze the UN building to the ground, piss on the ashes, and then build something that's actually worthwhile. Like, say, a homeless shelter.
Seems like other people feel the same way.
