Save the Blonde With Brain!

A blonde with brain shows to be far more looked upon than anything intellectual. There are blondes with less brain that look for more specific interests – like fashion, food, etc – and pretend to be smart with it: they might gain money, but they spend their narcissistic lives posting all the times, hence their private life can’t be real and they will end up old and frustrated sentimentally before predicted. A blonde with brain doesn’t care about gaining money through social networks, she finds herself a man that do it better! And she keeps writing for passion. Thus my decision to open something more “intellectual” that could compete with the HuffingtonPost Post (!) was indeed foolish. My lovely geek expert created it for me, but it was so much slower to post that I was lazy eventually, and I had to think too much – hey hey I am still a blonde, don’t ask too much for “a living.” 😉

  
I found out that on the web a blonde with brain is as looked for as a unicorn. Thus this special creature I created cannot die!!! 

All the controversy that was put here before will come harsher from the topics in the OFFington, from which I will start copying some of the articles. This website will be renovated (like a house, the answer is renovating what you have been growing up in if the childhood was beautiful, not toss it away. You invest on your loves!). I will also write the guidelines for what could then become an ONG called yes, probably the OFFington… will see. But let’s keep on with the blonde bumpy chaotic lucky track! This time I might write sometimes less, but more constantly. My foolish obsessions will become yours. 

Who is excited about it? Xxx

Magister

Dear readers,

Blondewithbrain got her Master degree in international relations yesterday. The discussion was very specific and it can be rightfully called the last battle. Finishing was really touching, it completely drained me. Indeed I am very happy because this is the end of an important path, the same that many important people have done–in my case diplomats, Presidents of the Republic, writers, politicians. I am very happy because I have finished in the due time, with no delays and no more taxes. Yet it feels so strange knowing that this is the end of exams, dramas in the buildings and lunches at the canteen with my father (who strangely loves to eat especially there) in days where we would both have something to do in Florence later, or he needed to do something at the Court. Even if I refuse to think this is an end and I will keep on being around the uni to publish books and maybe teach one day–when I will be such an innovative mind that I will be called ad honorem–indeed the sensation is something odd, especially considering that after this my main worry will be organising the perfect wedding with my now fiancée! I have really grown up exponentially this month… The only thing that keeps me younger is organising an astronomical Russian party and not worry to much about work.   Alas SCHUTKA!!! (Which is Russian for “joke”). Actually I am announcing today the imminent opening of my website, a blond think tank of relaxed and fun counter information. There will be several sections, so you’ll be able to read whatever interest you must, but keeping in mind that I am not The Huffington Post as I am not a journalist yet… I will be The OFFington! So hopefully from next week you will be able to read what I specifically avoided to write the past weeks–of course because I was focusing on the degree, but also because the issues are so tasty that I want to make sure they are the first to appear: Alexander Dugin (the subject of my thesis and of ideologue of much of the international debate concerning Russia today) in his many aspects, Trump and his crazy moves, Macron and his patron. Did you really think I would be silent on the French elections? I will be fostered to open the site asap. And I hope that you will remain with me and let me hear your voice, so I will have a subscribe section and in case I agree with the tone of your messages, they will be published on your behalf with your name next to mine. I will find a way for which someone can collaborate too. As soon as it is ready, keep connected to Blondewithbrain as under shiny hair I will make sure you’ll have the shiny news of ambitious me!

Love your work and you will never work in your life. (Steve Jobs)

I’d rather be unemployed under the sun rather than working. Instead, I cross fingers I’ll have enough inspiration to live on my writings.

Goodbye blog, time to grow up for you too!

Hard Power vs. Hard Power

This morning I read the news about Trump’s missile strike on the Syrian air base. Despite the horror of the chemical attack I was totally surprised Trump would turn against Assad, who is an ally for Russia–to which apparently the approach would be different to the previous administration. But then I started strolling on the chemical attacks and I couldn’t even see through the images as I was about to throw up (I am very sensitive to blood and even more to deformations and illness). Assad is really unforgivable. So Trump did something strong but enormously thought. He told Russia what he intended to do and Russians were moved out of that air base. Then his missiles hit the air base. Friends prevented, he acted. So he defended those poor hit civilians not losing friendship with Moscow. Putin is tied up into his alliance with Assad and couldn’t act anyway. Despite Putin condemning the actions–the media’s version–I think the truth lies elsewhere. Trump has billions invested in Russia and his Secretary of State was awarded the Order of Friendship by Putin himself. So there’s no way Putin didn’t know about the attack in its precise details (Trump already revealed it would retaliate, we knew he was organising it in the Pentagon last days). Thus the truth about Trump and Putin lies elsewhere. Medias can act and say whatever they want as usual, but they are disgraceful and they would better be not listened to at all (in fact my website is in construction, and will be aimed to make fun of official information). Truth is that crimes such as Hitler’s and Assad’s can’t be tolerated–we can’t keep someone like this just because “he holds his country in shambles.” We can’t kill him either–that’s why killing Khadafi was idiotic and unfair. All the international community must criticise Assad, and I am sure Putin does too but can’t be overt about it. It’s just like World War II and Nazism. We are all at risk and Russia is moving its position again to fight for the Ally side. And split its share of world order again. Will it be multipolar then? There is the most subtle and exquisite diplomacy on game here and we are very lucky to have Trump and Putin to take care of world order. Even if it will end up with a nuclear bomb, finally we’ll stop with our civilians killed. We must give safety back to our capitals–a city like Stockholm, where Nobel prizes are given, should never be hit! Furthermore, Swedish are not dicks as French! We should be curious and not at all frightened–unless indeed we travel into capitals, but sure it will change. By now I enjoy my approaching degree in the sun of Italy and my beautiful Queen-life in the English countryside–with a gap for Easter in luscious French Riviera.

And as my website’s posts must be for laugh and not cry, let’s laugh at Antonio Razzi and his selfie with Bashar al-Assad. After his declared friendship and admiration with Kim Jong Un indeed a selfie with the other world tyrant was what an Italian minister was requested to do… to brag on his friends.

There is a grammatical error that follows his reply to critiques on Twitter that makes everybody envious too of not having studied and attained something such as his post in the Parliament nevertheless…

Italy’s Flat Tax

Scrooge McDucks from overseas, did you know that the a Paradise on earth such as Italy – with its food, people, fashion, landscapes etc. – has became a fiscal Paradise for you from a few weeks? Finally the government passed a law that might as well attract wealth and a boost to the economy instead of stinky useless migrants able to make their wealth by stealing the wealthy – validating Churchill’s quote for which while “capitalism consists in an unequal sharing of blessings, socialisms consists in an equal sharing of misery.” Thus now a new foreign resident can apply to the Italian Revenue Agency with the request of being billed only €100,000 over a period of 15 years. E.g. considering that €100,000,000 revenue would be cut in half in almost all the States of residency making the millionaire a middle class species, having the possibility that year to pay on his revenue coming from overseas – which should be everywhere but in the E.U., so I guess England as well as soon as Brexit will be effective; which I guess will be interesting due to the economic shock and the falling of the Pound, the raises in salaries and the major taxation the government will ask to retain the same inflow. What will you be waiting for, then? Bank accounts in Italy are cheap compared to existing fiscal paradises, life is cheaper in general and the period to live there can be seen as spent in a holiday which offers the best landscapes in the world – together with charming cities filled with activities, shopping and art. In Italy it’s easy to jump in a car and, depending on the range of time you want to spend into it, you can see within generally 15km totally different scenarios already. Plus, last but not least, the real estate is so cheap!!! From 2008 apparently it hasn’t came yet to its old prices, but necessarily it will be in a new economic cycle – this theatrical piece in our politics must soon come to an end and everybody who studied history known we Italians always rose up again to send on our own. Italy wasn’t hit that much by the 2010 Eurozone crisis. I want to remind that Silvio Berlusconi succeeded in refusing the IMF loan that Sarkozy and Merkel relentlessly tried to palm off us. The result? CRISIS, but at least not SLAVERY (to “Germany’s” EBC) – unlike Greece, Spain, Ireland, Cyprus. For Berlusconi the result was a political golpe that happened a few days later in that November 2011, when the most criminal president of the Republic – €19 millions worth ex communist decrepit Giorgio Napolitano – called him off his charge and decided Mario Monti should succeed to him immediately as a premier.

This news of a Flat Tax 6 years later should comfort everybody instead of being criticised. All proud Italian that in 2011 cherished our close death should over-talk about it because we are resurrecting. A “left” technical government passed it – needless to say it, Berlusconi proposed it years ago but was not listened to. We need money, fun, wealth brought to our country of Gods. Poverty never created anything – wealth does! Our most beautiful art pieces comes from wealthy men who commissioned it!!! And wealthy people are the good entrepreneurial people that Italians need.

Enjoy beauty and make no war

Aesthetics is the key to a fulfilled, pleasant life. It’s never been my intention to imitate Oscar Wilde or Gabriele D’Annunzio because it might seems shallow, but in a world where horrors happen living surrounded by beautiful things helps enormously. Plus it’s easy to imagine luxury, statues, marbles and beautiful cars, but it’s way simpler than this. Indeed that would be the point – working hard and gaining the right to buy durable objects that maintain their cash price forever or even increase it -, but before getting there one should enter the mentality of being on the way to make it, allowing him/herself a treat. A treat is something useless and relatively expensive – to paraphrase Marie Antoinette it is “a macaron, and not bread”(actually she said croissant, but I am using macarons as they were invented by an ITALIAN chef at her court and she went nuts for them) – but which boost your mood and self-esteem in enjoying its sight and/or taste knowing you made a relatively crazy thing allowing yourself the try. It’s eating one oyster with a glass of white wine in a bar on a street in France instead of eating a sandwich for lunch. It’s eating a truffle pizza or drinking champagne and not prosecco for a relatively little difference for a piece or a glass. It’s buying a rose randomly and enjoy its sight, planting a particular plant, buying a charming map or a textile. The unusual and the beautiful. That’s what separate civilisation from barbarians, enjoy the beauty that life can offer instead of indulging in horrific images and examples given by reportage of countries in war and/or poverty. It’s the mentality of success-thinking in excess mode!  Coming home knowing that a luscious box of chocolates, pastries, roses will be there make of home a good, positive environment. And will make you want more, for which you’ll be pumped to gain. And with a drop of positivity you’ll make it in a way that you’ll feel you have never worked in you life as your work is your passion (cit. Steve Jobs).

That was a little preface for a project I am working on, a new website. I am willing to finally make of my gift of writing a (almost) full-time job, both by starting my own counter information journal, and by writing books. The first editions of Harry Potter are well on sight on a shelf to remind me of their author – a woman which made the most beautiful trip in her mind and made from it a bestseller which made her a billionaire. Those are examples to look at! J. K. Rowling was on the train from Manchester to London (the same I was into on NYE) when she had the idea of writing from a tiny scratch she made on a handkerchief. She was 25 and she made a billionaire trip for free that many billionaires could never conceive neither afford. Fantasy is the best trip, it is infinite and can change your world, in fact it is outer space. Rowling studied the classics at the university of Exeter, and then went to live in Manchester. So far, we have several things in common: I turned 25, went to Exeter in college on a very unforgettable camp experience when I was 16, I am currently living close to Manchester, in a countryside where from owls and strange cats Hyppogrifs might as well appear. Plus, I am an Italian raised in a family where from the part of my mother we have classics’ teachers and editors – in the country where true art was created. Indeed I have a juridical/political background from my studies – it helps when you create a “ministry of magic” I guess, or when you create a new world from a current political situation. So readers, my statement is that I will do my best to entertain you and gain your loyalty. I want to inspire you and make you dream. I want to make you mostly laugh in the website, and maybe cry a bit in the books – hence I want to move your soul. Meanwhile I would like to avoid being criticised because I don’t write in my mother tongue, but I have been so deep into the English practise (so much that also my current dissertation is in English) that I find it easier and plus practically everybody understand – nevertheless, in the future I shall translate or have an Italian translator to keep up the Italian pride.

Your support means a lot to me, thanks to all the ones that have been confident of BLONDEWITHBRAIN, with such a name sometimes I mocked myself too, but I guess it worked to make me EXCESSively confident – smiling with a lobster in my mouth instead of copying pictures or being serious! Life is a joyful fantasy if we want!

First you shoot him and then you save him?

I honestly can’t get why we keep on seeing and reading that the terrorist who attempted to brutally murder as much as possible innocent civilians has been attempted to save after being shot and taken to hospital for care. They should take their heads off and show them hanged in the street where the attack happened in order to discourage other similar actions! When in 2014 ISIS was beheading innocent journalists with a kitchen knife all was public on YouTube. And the EU and even U.K. which is now processing its way out of it saves them – or tries to??? I could understand the stupid French would do it in Louvre, but I expected a different behavior from England. And even worse – the press tells us how the terrorist was saved and even posts his photo with the urgency care!? I cannot believe it. What do they expect to be told? They can’t wait to be tortured eventually and killed, they think they have 20 virgins waiting for them in heaven… They’d rather be killed on spot and showed to the world. All this looks like a fucking complot. Our governments must be related. There is nothing such as human fucking bloody rights when people such as from my white Catholic family and Jew peaceful friend,s which would never wage an holy war, are risking their life for a bunch of “religious” psychopaths. I am waiting for a proper second amendment in my zones otherwise I or someone for me will fucking go down Westminster, Elyseum or Montecitorio and kill the true responsibles. Government must drop a fucking bomb there. God didn’t spare Sodom and Gomorrah because 10 to 50 innocents lived there. The places where something such as Al Qaeda and ISIS could grow are SCUM and must be screwed over.
