Lots of new unrest in Puerto Rico

Dana Mathewson

The headline in Twitchy reads

Everything seems rather calm in Puerto Rico, just a guillotine being set up at the governor’s mansion while the…WAIT, WHUT?!?!

Those with decent memories remember Hurricane Maria that devastated Puerto Rico a few years ago. President Trump sent a bunch of aid, but the Mayor of San wasn't grateful and pulled the usual Democrat shenanigans. Now it appears that all the aid earmarked for San Juan went into warehouses and stagnated there. What a surprise. Well...

Things have been rather dicey down in the US territory of Puerto Rico since…well for generations now. While the island has been dealing with the aftermath of significant earthquakes weeks back, compounding ongoing stresses brought on by the massive hurricane last year, things are starting to possibly reach a breaking point for citizens.

They were marching on the governor’s mansion, setting up a guillotine in the capitol square.

This week came news reports earthquake victims in need of emergency provisions raiding a warehouse that had stored relief supplies following Hurricane Maria’s devastation. These supplies had been sitting dormant, never getting distributed. This echoes similar stories that came out after the hurricane when aid remained stagnant at the ports. It now seems the residents are not as eager to believe leaders pointing the blame at the White House.

Well, whattya know! The article from this point is mostly a series of Tweets, but they get the point across quite nicely. The citizens are annoyed now that they are aware of the, er, governmental malfeasance, and are making that annoyance known. I'd say it's about time.

1 The situation is reminiscent of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. While Bush got the blame it was the Mayor and Governor who screwed everything up - both Democrats. In the end Mayor Schoolbus Nagin went to prison for corruption (he was using his fast-track deal making authority to give contracts to companies who then gave contracts to his son's business) but the New Orleans citizenry were able to move away to other parts of the country (Texas, for one, which is part of why Texas is in play now for the Democrats.) In Puerto Rico you have no place to go - unless you immigrate to the U.S.

Which is why Florida may well flip in this next election. After re-enfranchising criminals (over a million and a half) and the Puerto Ricans coming in, the state is probably lost. It was razor thin in the last several elections anyway, and of course the officials who tried to steal it for Al Gore are still in office down in Broward County.

At any rate, the Puerto Ricans have supported their own equivalent of liberal Democrats all these years, so they are reaping what they have sewn. Governor Wanda Vazquez Garced is a member of the New Progressive Party, so you can pretty much see where she is politically. I imagine that makes her a confederate of Bernie Sanders.

It's one of the things that stinks about being a conservative; we have to clean up the messes left by liberals and then get blamed for them.

2 It just reminds me again of the Englishman who said "It's frightening to think of how few politicians are hanged these days." Was that Chesterton?

3 Sounds like him, Dana.  Whoever it was he's absolutely correct. We need a few more hangings of "public servants" to keep the rest in line.

Or, as the Puerto Ricans are doing, a guillotining. Looking for a few good heads...

4 That guillotine looks scary, but if you examine it, it's poorly constructed. The blade mechanism is not set in a track and would not reliably bring the blade down accurately on a neck. But then, maybe that's the idea -- if it were actually to be used on a person, it would do a heckuva lot of damage but probably not kill.

I still think public hangings of corrupt politicians should once again become the order of the day. Adam Schiff, you're Numero Uno!

5 Well, if we're talking Schiff I'm a mind to bring back drawing and quartering. Or the oldie but goodie burning at the stake.

6 If you used that last, you'd get castigated for adding to air pollution.

7 I would point out to them that Schiff is polluting the air now...
