Precisely, just ask Michael Corleone:

The Godfather Scene between Michael Corleone & Kay Adams explains the Delusion of the Statists, better than ANY Treatise!

Al Pacino's character Michael Corleone says to his wife Kay Adams, played by Diane Keaton:

Michael Corleone: I'm working for my father now Kay. He's been sick, very sick.

Kay Adams: But you're not like him Michael. I thought you weren't going to become a man like your father. That's what you told me.

Michael Corleone: My father is no different than any other powerful man, any man who is responsible for other people, like a senator or a president.

Kay Adams: You know how naive you sound?

Michael Corleone: Why?

Kay Adams: Senators and presidents don't have men killed.

Michael Corleone: Oh. Who's being naive, Kay?

A friend, Gail, e-mailed me about the 1988 film, “Married to the Mob.” The character Angela – played by Michelle Pfeiffer – is the widow of a mobster. She is being threatened, by the FBI, with all kinds of fabricated criminal charges, in an effort to get her to “cooperate” with them. In one scene:

Angela: “God, you people work just like the mob! There’s no difference.”

FBI Regional Director: “Oh, there’s a big difference, Mrs. deMarco. The mob is run by murdering, thieving, lying, cheating psychopaths. We work for the President of the United States of America.”

*** If you've never seen Married to the Mob (never mind the presence of anti-gun Alec Baldwin & Matthew Modine), click on the following pictures to be redirected to DailyPaul Amazon store:

The Hair, the Hair, Don't touch the Hair! Come on! Gotta love the 1980's Bensonhurst Brooklyn Hair-do!

Film trivia: Dir. Jonathan Demme did the Oscar-winning The Silence of the Lambs, right after Married to the Mob! Talk about a shift in tone!

Michelle Pfeiffer?? At age 55, still a gorgeous hottie! And, my personal favorite rendition of on-screen CatWoman.

Sorry Julie Newmar (even though she endorsed Dr. Paul!) & Eartha Kitt fans. Love them, too, but just not the era I grew up in.o/

As for Halle Berry (not even worth mentioning) and Anne Hathaway's renditions? Should stay where they belong: in the kitty litter box.
