    I was watching some thing on the Mafia and it appears they have really cracked down on organized crime since about the mid 80s, and it's a shame. Mobsters are cool just on general principal. They drive fancy Cadillacs and cook delicious foods. Plus the are responsible for such movies as Goodfellas, which has enhanced all of our lives.

    What the mob does is really no different then what the Government does anyways, so I don't get it. I wish things were like how they were back in the old days, when the mob actually influenced almost everything, including politics, labor unions, and Frank Sinatra.

    Lets give it up to Mr. Carlos Gambino.

  2. Amazing. Hollywood glamorized a deadly criminal lifestyle and you bought it.

    I know it's dealy and criminal, but it's still cool, and it's not any more corrupt then the government.
     
  4. Why dont you write them a fan letter?

    :D

    You buy into movies too much............maybe 1% of them are like the characters in the movies.

    My great Grandfather was a rumrunner in the 20s-30s. He was connected to whatever mob ran whiskey in Florida.

    The IRS never killed me, my wife, or any of my children when they thought I owed them more money that I thought I did . . . . it ain't all glamorous, and despite what you see in the movies, there wasn't that much "honor" among them.

    Game 7 is going to be fun. And of course if the Pistons win, i'm sure some fires will be burning in Detroit (as usual). I hope the mob didn't rig the game for gambling purposes.

    Careful dude, you're gonna get moved to TPA. And then you'll have to pay your membership fee. Only mobsters have that kind of money. :D

    I thought the first post was fairly ironic, and not totally serious. Anyone else get that?

    Remember, Al Capone got nailed for tax evasion. The gov couldn't get him any other way. "That's the difference between me and scum like you". :D
