Mafia 'Commandments' More Virtuous Than US Congress

Mafia 'commandments' found; By Alessandra Rizzo, Associated Press 8 November 2007.

“The list bars mobsters from hanging out in bars, from befriending police and being late for appointments. It also bars them from ‘taking possession of money that belong to others or other families.’

“How to treat women also features in the decalogue.

“‘You shall not look at wives of our friends,’ says one entry. ‘You shall respect your wife,’ says another. However, the Mafia comes first, as the fifth ‘commandment’ orders a mobster to ‘be available for Cosa Nostra at any moment, even if your wife is about to give birth.’”

Comment: Imagine if Congress had a quarter of the loyalty to our nation and the care of family that the mobsters do. Maybe the United States would be a different place.
