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

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

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