Italy grinds to halt in strike

Public transportation ground to a halt, public offices shut down and thousands rallied across Italy on Friday as part of a general strike against the government's 2006 budget.

Could you imagine if the US totally shut down everytime the public was unhappy with the government? Nothing would ever get done. Now that I think about it, it's not such a bad idea. If we as a people showed some initative and stopped working for the corporations that run our country (don't pretend you don't know) then maybe, for once, they'd listen to us. We'd finally have a voice. We could change things for the better.

Ah...who am I kidding? That would involve getting off the couch.
