After months of speculation that Il Capo, Donny T might have asked for help in eliminating his opposition Hillary "the hellion" Clinton from "Vlad the Impaler" Putin there appears to be truth to the rumors.  Vlad has denied everything, and maintains that his nickname is not warranted.  Unlike the historical Vlad, he prefers to slip his enemies a radioactive mickey.

The last five days have been interesting.  On Friday we were given word that the Feds were about to put a contract out on someone, we just didn’t know who.

On Monday we found that Paul “the Pimp” Manafort had been marked along with his underboss, Rick “gatemouth” Gates.  What we didn’t know was that George “Georgy the Greek”/”Coffee Boy” Papadopoulos had switched sides and ratted out Pauly the Pimp and possibly Il Capo di Tutti Capi, Donny “grab ‘em by the pussy” T.  Donny T has called Georgy the Greek a low level crew member who doesn’t know anything about the family business.  Meanwhile, Donny T is meeting with his consigliore at an undisclosed location.

Will Donny T try to whack Georgy the Greek?  The caporegime doesn’t like snitches. 

Paul the Pimp and Gatemouth Gates are under house arrest and making up stories to fight all of the charges filed by the Fed mouthpiece, Bob Mueller.

Despite multiple early morning tweets saying things like “DO SOMETHING” to the other crime families, there is no evidence that Mitch, “Turtle Neck” McConnell or Paul, “I’m In Love With Ayn Rand” Ryan intend to get involved in the war.

But, this is just Tuesday.

You have a point

I never saw The Godfather movies or the Sopranos or really any of that stuff that makes crime seem like great family fun.

I do think that's exactly what we are watching now however.

Gee...  glad you didn't stereotype a whole bunch of people!  

(...and hats off to the preceding assholes yucking right along with you, but who would have screamed bloody murder if anyone would have said even the slightest thing like these about their specific minority)

Since when does stereotyping a subculture reflect on an entire ethnicity? And, by the way, that subculture was not completely confined to one ethnic group. As in Bugsy Siegel or Murder Incorporated. Or Whitey Bulger. Three or four generations back, I have a great great (great?) uncle that ran in those circles and was executed in a hit. I was never able to extract details - my grandmother knew a little. Japan has Yakuza. The most dangerous mobs in America are now Latin American. 

But Italians had cooler nicknames. 

And since when does Miss Jews Run The World's Banks worry about stereotyping? Unlike that stereotype, the nicknames are at least grounded in reality.

Oh, I don't know...  I guess the same way that condemning Zionism is considered anti-semitic?

Oh, okay...  I guess when anyone hears Italians words like "consigliore", "caporegime" or "Capo di tutt'i capi" they automatically assume people are speaking Yiddish about the Yakuza from Latin America, right?

And since when does Miss Jews Run The World's Banks worry about stereotyping? Unlike that stereotype, the nicknames are at least grounded in reality. 

Care to show me where I said that?  But that would be no fun for you, though...  it is MUCH better to ignore your own shit by screaming bullshit about other people's isn't it?

Yikes! What about Boardwalk Empire featuring an Irish mobster, or Magic City featuring Jewish crime bosses? 

I used Italian references because they are so colorful and because the crime family in the White House is a family.

I asked a fellow artist from New Jersey who was Jewish and Italian whether she ever had any xperience with the mob Her answer? My grandfather was a Gambino. Two generations later she was painting in North Carolina.

I think you used Italian because in America, i dunno about europe, but, best as i know from movies et. al, italians -not by any means to mean others don't- use use innuendo and insult like jet fuel in a lawn mower,, for certain ethnicities, best as i can determine from the few i've winessed, unlike a lawn mower on jet fuel, they aren't burnt out the next day, they're more inspired than ever.

Condemning Zionism if using a single standard isn't antisemitic. But when condemning the Israelis for taking credit for being decent to their gay population while not so much as mentioning their close neighbor Hamas when they execute a senior military official for being gay does lead to conjecture about the objectivity of one's antizionism.
