These are the words which
shaped my youth . Growing up poor in Brooklyn, these guys were the stuff of legend and when you're dirt poor and the peaks of Manhattan look like a literal Wall Street Oasis...you develop a different set of sensibilities.
Even though I knew more than one living inspiration for a Goodfellas character, not a single made man I even met or heard of had anything on this lady .
Ms. Amy Butte (rface), folks...perhaps the most Original Gangster I never met.
Ms. Butte or just "The Face" (as I will refer to her from now on) has created a racket beyond anything myself and other dead end kids daydreamed about in BK, back in the pre-gentrification day.
The Face has taken to a form of civilized pimpstling (pimping + hustling) which would make the love child of Bernie Madoff and Heidi Fleiss seem a beacon of virtue.
The Face is a former degenerates looking to squander familial left overs, whether by investing in indigenous sweaters to stop global warming or one-click donating to the charity of choice as the new perverted self aggrandizing form of bottle-popping.Analyst and founder of Tile Financial and it's e-portal "Spend Grow Give". The one stop e-shop for trust fund baby
Tile plans to introduce electronic alerts sent to the parents if their child spends an allowance too early in the month.
In other words, everything a complete waste of sperm needs to be enabled and pacified, without feeling...enabled and pacified.
As a stern defender of inheritance rights and mortal enemy of estate/inheritance taxes, I find myself a bit at odds with my principles flinging my simian fecal matter at these poor misunderstood critters.
I do, however, have a preference for human survival and American society not devolving completely within my lifetime.
There is a reason why amongst America's 400 or so billionaires there are only 2 full fledged trust fund babies (David Rockefeller and Ted Turner), it is because a dollar earned is a lesson learned...and as much as I admire The Face as a righteous gangster of my childhood dreams, this is another sad example of our slippery slope becoming a full blown avalanche.
The punchline to the joke is that...yes...our favorite Government Sponsored Enterprise...has invested an undisclosed amount into The Face's pet project.
As we prepare for as much as a possible $1 trillion being inherited in the U.S through 2025, I am not surprised that the government is getting involved in the pimping of priceless thoughtless minds. I can only guess how many future Progressives will "SGG"
The first generation makes it...
The second takes it...
The third pisses it all away...
Here's to italian ices, double dutch, ding-dong-ditch and the fact that all I have is the product of my own hard work.
I no longer want to be a gangster, I just don't have the stomach for it.
