    Don't let them hear you say that...some of them can be quite touchy about their heritage.

        If you have to make a hit, and there is someone with the person to be hit, take them out in their order of danger to you - for example as shown by Neri when he cut down Barzini's bodyguard, then his driver, then Barzini. Michael likewise took out The Turk first, before Captain McCkluskey, because he was more dangerous.

          Bullets hurt.
          The long toll of the brave
          Is not lost in darkness
          Over the fruitful earth
          And athwart the seas
          Hath passed the light of noble deeds
          Unquenchable forever.

            Sometimes you have to go on a suicide mission, as Rocco did when he killed Hyman Roth - in those cases you just have to go right for the target.

                A lesson for our non-American members: Any televised Congressional or Senatorial hearings are bound to be a farce, they are not in any way what they appear to be - as when Michael and Frankie Five Angels testify before a Senate Committee.

                Of course, any American knows this from a young age.

                  When you conspire with other international elites to increase your wealth on the backs of the masses, you should make sure that the masses are not going to revolt, messing up the whole plan.


                  Case in point, in the Godfather II, when Michael saw the rebel blow himself up rather than be taken alive: Michael realized investing in Cuban Casinos with Hyman Roth et. al. was not a good investment.

                      Lakechampainer, if I send you a private message with a heading: "I'd like to make you an offer you can't refuse"-you better log-in and reply quickly! That's one of the lessons of Godfather.

                          A husband and wife to-be should discuss their plans for the wedding gift money prior to the wedding night.

                            When you come back from a few days away with your newest boyfriend, you should see your kids first and THEN wait in line to see your brother, like everyone else.

                              When meeting a fellow man of honor in a public place, you should have a security sweep done, even if you arranged it as a secret meeting - don't forget your opponent has intelligence and operational resources of his own - otherwise you might end up with a bullet through your head.

                                ows: What would Godfather characters think?

                                What would be the reactions of some of the characters in The Godfather to the Occupy Wall Street movement?

                                I think Al Neri would put on his old policeman's uniform and wade right in with his night stick - he would be particularly hard on "Italian-looking" protesters.
