"Business bad? Fuck you, pay me. Oh, you had a fire? Fuck you, pay me. Place got hit by lightning, huh? Fuck you, pay me.” —Henry Hill

Skimming by diverting pre-tax profits is the oldest trick in the Cosa Nostra play book. A classic racket. Take money out and reinvest it in whatever venture pays the highest return. We will all be sweet. It's only a 'rort', if you're not involved.

If we actually opened our collective eyes, Superannuation is skimming. Sure it's legal. Some of the best scams originate from mafia models.

I like the idea of squirrelling away for a rainy day. I like the principle of taking pension pressure off the taxpayer. I loathe the idea that our money is a 'ball of wool' for the fat cats to play with to build bonuses.

Yosemite Sam, the gigs up. I'm not gonna 'forget about it'.
