Italian citizenship is so convoluted that last year when the Australian High Court had to rule if a particular politician held dual Italian citizenship, it basically threw up it's hands and gave up.

If I'm allowed to stereotype a bit, doesn't that qualification apply to everything bureaucratic in Italy? ;)

Of course. Blame everything on the US. It's not like they've been massacring each other for thousands of years or anything, oh, no.

Exactly! We've already got all the wackos we need; why should we let in more?

Funny thing, though — our wackos don't go to other countries and murder hundreds of innocent people just because they don't believe the 'right' things.

It's true that religious wackos from the US don't go to other countries and kill people, but they do go elsewhere and destroy cultures. Plus it could be argued that for everyone of the statistically few US citizens killed by terrorists there are hundreds killed by airstrikes in retaliation.

..snip..

You couldn't even be honest enough to quote the whole sentence.
Did I blame everything on the US? Let me help you out a bit:
Most terrorists and extremists come from disenfranchised people, and the US has managed to disenfranchise a lot of people by f*cking up a lot of countries with their able partner Russia (or aka Soviet before the breakup).

There! Can you read it now?

Didn't one John Oliver article point out that there's no actual legal requirement for the Prime Minister to be an Italian Citizen?

Why bother, when they live in a target-rich environment with easy availability of high-capacity weapons?

Because killing your neighbours is so much better than killing foreigners, is that it?

Maybe I'm paraniod, but does anyone else think the Republicans might just be trying to bide their time until we're far enough into Trump's term that Pence could run for two full terms before taking action on Trump?
