From today's BLEAT:
Imagine a government report on organized crime, demanding the following:* The Mafia’s full adherance to the RICO and IRS statutes concerning independent contractors, including but not limited to Social Security contributions, FICA regulations, as well as compliance with state and federal laws concerning murder, extortion and kidnapping* The Mafia’s full cooperation with all investigations into the deaths of Artie “Two Sheds” Palini, Ricky “The Squid” Piscatori, Jackie the Gaspipe, Tommy Shoes, and 16,302 others* A verifiable cessation of Mafia contributions to local law enforcement officials
* The Mafia should use its influence with the Russian and Irish mobs to find out what the hell happened to that poor guy who wandered into the back room when they were all having a sit-down
* A verifiable cessation of Mafia efforts to undermine and circumvent the laws in the states of New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Chicago, as well as Nevada and portions of Kansas City which Johnny Mook swears he has no control over, but some of those hits just have his style written all over them.
If those things are done, well, the price of garbage hauling in selected municipalities might decrease. But I wouldn’t count on the happening, and I certainly wouldn’t argue that we should give the Mafia Staten Island in the hopes some age-old territorial grievance will be settled for good.Happy infamy day, by the way.
Think about it. That's basically the "New Diplomatic Offensive" that the Iraq Study Group thinks will turn Iraq into Kofi Kountry.
