And finally, stop letting my people go ... my peeps are getting the short end of the stick and we want reparations (and jobs!). Seriously, WTF? Remember what Senator Pat Geary said in The Godfather:

“Mr. Chairman, I would like to verify the witness’s statement. For years now, a growing number of my constituents have been of Italian descent, and I have come to know them well. They have honored me with their support and with their friendship. Indeed, I can proudly say some of my very best friends are Italian Americans.

“These hearings on the Mafia are in no way whatsoever a slur upon the great Italian people. Because I can state from my own knowledge and experience that Italian Americans are among the most loyal, most law-abiding, patriotic, hard working American citizens in this land.

“And it would be a shame, Mr. Chairman, if we allowed a few rotten apples to bring a bad name to the whole barrel. Because from the time of the great Christopher Columbus up through the time of Enrico Fermi right up to the present day — Italian Americans have been pioneers in building and defending our great nation. They are the salt of the earth and one of the backbones of this country.”

- Senator Pat Geary
