“The Irishman” to screen this fall

“The Irishman” – a movie about Teamster corruption and the murder of Jimmy Hoffa – will open this fall. It’s bound to be noticed, because it stars Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci, and is directed by Martin Scorsese.

irishman_thumb.jpgIt is based on the book “I Heard You Paint Houses: Frank ‘the Irishman’ Sheeran and the Inside Story of the Mafia, The Teamsters, and the Final Ride of Jimmy Hoffa.” Here is a summary and review of the book.

"I heard you paint houses." Those are the first words Jimmy Hoffa ever spoke to Frank Sheeran, who would become a top Teamster official in the 1960s and '70s as well as a hired killer for Hoffa and the mob. The words refer to the splatter of blood when the deed is done.

    I have to wonder if they had you in mind when they nicknamed TDU as Too Dumb to Understand.

    Great employment opportunities for Hollywood , playing the sordid characters of the past history of the IBT.
    The sequel with current cast from Hoofia jr. will require a new set of actors as these will be octogenarians or expired.
    Maybe the consent ORDER will have morphed again ( in a effort to claim victory) into a ’ privatisation of..,

    We come full circle with this Partisan biased CONSENT ORDER..
    The IBT is back to colluding with a Degenerate GOP.(that is closing in on impeachment again)
    Income inequality is forged into 2 DECADES of CONCESSIONARY Contracts.
    Contracts that are carefully constructed to weaken & destroy the working class .
    Labor agreements with enough toxic ’ multi tier ’ pay levels & lessened benefits to insure this.

    The timing of the movie release could not have been more poorly planned———union participation and public perception of unions are at all time lows.
