TERRAS DE PENALVA ONDE «A LIBERDADE É A COMPREENSÃO DA NECESSIDADE»

Mais um que não se lembrava de nada, não sabia nada, não fez nada

    Para saber quem é que não se lembrava de nada, não sabia nada, não fez nada, e teve apenas, em tempos, uns negócios envolvendo uma ilha distante - é clicar aqui ou aqui.

«O Padrinho» - fonte inesgotável para se compreender o funcionamento do capitalismo!

Polícias e ladrões

    

A propósito destas e doutras frases que falam de polícias e ladrões vão aqui três lindos vídeos da mesma cena do filme «O Padrinho I» para recordar a quem as profere como elas são infelizes e se podem virar contra aqueles que visam defender.

O contexto da cena do filme pouco tem a ver com o que se passa em Portugal. Sem qualquer ironia.

 
Aqui vão, pois, um polícia e dois ladrões:

Cuba 50 anos: cenas de «O Padrinho, Parte II», em Cuba

     A máfia em Cuba mesmo nas vésperas da Revolução...

Citações:

- Most respected gentlemen... allow me to welcome you to the city of Havana. I want to thank this distinguished group of American industrialists... for continuing to work with Cuba... toward the greatest period of prosperity... in her entire history. Mr. William Shaw, representing the General Fruit Company; Misters Corngold and Dant... of United Telephone and Telegraph Company; Mr. Petty, regional vice president... of the Pan American Mining Corporation; Mr. Robert Allen of South American Sugar; Mr. Michael Corleone of Nevada... representing our associates in tourism and leisure activities; and my old friend and associate from Florida... Mr. Hyman Roth. I would like to take this opportunity... to thank United Telephone and Telegraph... for their lovely Christmas gift: a solid gold telephone. Perhaps you gentlemen would like to take a look at it.

- Mr. President.

- Yes? 

Perhaps you would discuss the status of rebel activity... and what this can mean to our businesses. 

- Of course. Very lovely. I want to assure you that although the rebels... have mounted an impressive campaign in Las Villas... my staff indicates with assurance... we'll drive them out of the city of Santa Clara before the new year. And I want to put you all at ease. We will tolerate no guerillas in the casinos or swimming pools.

(...)

Citações:

Michael Corleone: I saw a strange thing today. Some rebels were being arrested. One of them pulled the pin on a grenade. He took himself and the captain of the command with him. Now, soldiers are paid to fight; the rebels aren't.
Hyman Roth: What does that tell you?
Michael Corleone: It means they could win.

 

Outras Citações:

Hyman Roth: If I could only live to see it, to be there with you. What I wouldn't give for twenty more years! Here we are, protected, free to make our profits without Kefauver, the goddamn Justice Department and the F.B.I. ninety miles away, in partnership with a friendly government. Ninety miles! It's nothing! Just one small step, looking for a man who wants to be President of the United States, and having the cash to make it possible. Michael, we're bigger than U.S. Steel.

 *

Senator Pat Geary: I despise the way you pose yourself. You and your whole fucking family.
Michael Corleone: We're both part of the same hypocrisy, senator, but never think it applies to my family.

*

[Geary is demanding a large bribe for a gaming license]
Senator Pat Geary: I want your answer and the money by noon tomorrow. And one more thing. Don't you contact me again, ever. From now on, you deal with Turnbull.
Michael Corleone: Senator? You can have my answer now, if you like. My final offer is this: nothing. Not even the fee for the gaming license, which I would appreciate if you would put up personally.

*

Senator Pat Geary: I can get you a gaming license. The price is $250,000.
Michael Corleone: Now, the price of a gaming license it less than $20,000. Is that correct?
Senator Pat Geary: Yes.
Michael Corleone: So why would I ever consider paying more than that?
Senator Pat Geary: Because I intend to squeeze you.

*

Hyman Roth: This is the business we chose.
