One of Belgium’s best-known actors, Benoit Poelvoorde, has urged his fellow citizens not to shave again until the country finally forms a government.
A caretaker government has been running Belgium since June, setting a post-war record for a period without government. Parties from the Dutch-speaking north and French-speaking south remain split.

“Don’t be surprised by the stubble,” said Poelvoorde. “We have decided to stop shaving for as long as Belgium has no government. Let’s keep our beards until Belgium rises again.”
It was not immediately clear how many Belgian men might down razors in response.

Yeah, this should solve the problem. What would you do along these lines to get our government to do ____?

    Balance the budget and keep it that way? Not sure. I think I would be willing to die to get that done because it is that important.

    I’m not aware of anything that I can do other than vote and donate that might aid this process.

  2. Ah_Yea says:

    It will be very entertaining to see how long their beards will be in 5 years.

    I imagine they will look something like this:

    “Belgians” includes Belgian women. Think about that.

  4. michael says:

    All women should walk around naked until the Federal Reserve is disbanded.


  5. Lux Occulta says:

    The million dollar question must be – has anyone actually missed the government? Has the country suffered some sort of misfortune? Is there anarchy on the streets?

    Now I wonder why I’m a libertarian….

  6. Lou Minatti says:

    That’s what I was asking, Lux. Funny that we haven’t been hearing about riots in the streets of Brussels or mass starvation.

  7. MikeN says:

    THis is where the EU is run, right?

  8. Brian says:

    All Americans should boycott watching Ministry of Truth news (Fox, Cnn, Brian Williams, etc..) until:

    1. The Patriot Act is overturned
    2. TSA is disbanded
    3. Useless Wars in Iraq & Afganistan are ended.
    4. The Fed is ended.

    That would be a nice start.
    And without ratings, the world would end for them.
