      He's trying to look more chinese so when he goes begging to them for money they might be more favorable.

    Hai ragione in Italia, and you're right in America.
    I tried to answer right away, but had CNN/tower problems.
    I knew that my post might imply that dependency was the only problem, but I sent it out anyway.

    I see that this cursed Berlusconi is going to hang on like a leech!!! These right-wingers are hard to get rid of. In fact, it took WW2 to get rid of both Hitler and Mussolini. Then again, I think more of Mussolini than I do this creep Berlusconi!!!

    I don't know if the economy of Italy is being "saved" or if personalities haven't "screwed" it up enough. But I know that the leaders of Europe should all resign and give place to competence and honesty. It's easy to offer promises to the people without telling the people that they are the ones that will have to pay for the promises.
