Well you know the saying, one man's garbage is another man's treasure.

Relax Don "Easily Offended" Linguinioni, I'm talking about McDonalds.

There is no Italian mafia, and by spreading these media lies you just perpetuate vicious and slanderous stereotypes against the Italian people.

And accidents happen when you do that.  It'd be a shame if something like that happened to you.

The Italian Mafia's definition of a Happy Meal is any meal with the Don that you don't end swimming with the fish.

I thought they had a partnership?  I mean, you gotta do something with the rest of the horse.

They should incorporate.

I'd buy stock in that.

There are plenty of publically traded waste management companies out there.

But let's be frank here. You never wanted my friendship. And you feared to be in my debt.

I am amused. That made me laugh. I am glad that was there to amuse me.

No of course not. In fact, I'm lovin' it.

It gives my big Italian heart much joy to see so many threads in the Business section referencing the Mafia.

If American business isn't the Mafia, it can be if you know the right guys.

"With a turnover of 53 billion euros ($73 billion) in 2013, the 'Ndrangheta mafia from southern Italy made more money last year than Deutsche Bank and McDonalds put together, a new study said Wednesday, as reported by AFP."


The Federal Reserve sent a record $88.4 billion in profits to the U.S. Treasury in 2013, audited results showed on Friday, a big payday for the government thanks to the central bank's massive bond purchases. -http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/15/federal-reserve-record-prof it _n_2884366.html

The Federal Reserve is an independent central bank because its monetary policy decisions do not have to be approved by the President or anyone else in the executive or legislative branches of government, it does not receive funding appropriated by the Congress, and the terms of the members of the Board of Governors span multiple presidential and congressional terms. -http://www.federalreserve.gov/faqs/about_14986.htm

To be fair, the Italian Mafia does have much better food.

Olive oil is very profitable.

But yeah, Serie A and B isn't rigged at all.  Is that what I'm supposed to think?

FTFH:   Mafia made more money last year than McDonald's.


I didn't know there was that much money in the pizza delivery business.

I wish to have the following noted for the record. That I served my country faithfully and honorably in World War II and was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for actions in defense of my country. That I have never been arrested or indicted for any crime whatsoever... that no proof linking me to any criminal conspiracy, whether it is called Mafia or Cosa Nostra or whatever other name you wish to give, has ever been made public. Only one man has made charges against me, and that man is known to be a murderer, arsonist and rapist.
 
2014-03-27 04:35:56 PM  
Organized crime?
Don't fool yourself, Marty. McDonald's is not that organized.
 
2014-03-27 05:35:06 PM  
Illegal garbage dumping? Huh. I never would have guessed that.

Seems weird that the mafia would publish their earnings. They got investors to please?

In five years the Italian Mafia is gonna be be completely legitimate.

As has already been noted, the Mafia is much healthier for you.

I bet they pay a living wage.

They don't pay shiat. You pay them. You figure out what you're going to steal, or which contraband you're going to move, and how. Then you have to kick a percentage upstairs. It's basically Amway for thugs.

And, eventually, they get everything they can out of you. I know murderers who killed, robbed, did everything to earn money for their organization. They ended up broke and wanted by that same organization because they still owed them money.

The famous Canadian counterfeiters is a case in point. Once they started printing so much fake money that they couldn't move it fast enough, they found a guy who knew a guy who could move the fake bills for them. Everything was fine until their buddy told them he needed more counterfeit cash. The amateurs tried to back out but the guy was adamant. Then they wanted to completely quit and again the guy said nope. I think the counterfeit operation got so big the percentage of counterfeit bills in one denomination was 10 times greater than other countries' usual rates. But it didn't have to end up that way. They could have stayed small and had a nice life. But organized crime got involved and everything was ruined.

Diligence. If you just keep doing a little bit of this, and a little bit of that, you'll make it big.
 
2014-03-28 08:13:07 AM  
Just execute them.
All of them.
Don't stop until none are left.
Problem solved.

"There is still time to avoid ending up in hell, which is where you are going if you continue down this path," [the Pope] warned mafiosi, telling them to relinquish their "blood-stained money" which "cannot be taken into paradise."

So, Pope, where does the Catholic Church rank amongst the Mafia and McDonald's in terms of blood-soaked cash?

That's alot of shoe shines.

If given the choice of being led by our current government, or the mob I would take the mob. They are at least someone honest about their dishonesty.  Well, that and the mob actually looks after the people they are paid to protect.
