(FILE UNDER MEN OF COURAGE & MORAL CHARACTER)
Alex Cora, manager of the 2018 baseball World Champions Boston Red Sox, has confirmed that he will not attend a White House reception with his team this Thursday stating his native Puerto Rico has not sufficiently recovered from Hurricane Maria to celebrate.
“We still have a long ways to go,” Cora said in regards to the state of Puerto Rico. “That’s our reality. It’s pretty tough to go celebrate when we’re where we’re at. I’d rather not go and just be consistent with everything.”Alex Cora
Here’s a shout out to Dr.Rex :
Gabby’s been heavy hearted since Maria destroyed our friend in the Caribbean, Puerto Rico. Dr. Rex on her blog has tirelessly campaigned for the United States government to step up relief efforts and emergency supplies. We get it on with the prayers and whatever support we can muster. Sometimes, it just seems that it ain’t enough.
Dang it all, nobody deserves the supercilious remarks out of the head cheez whiz when he said Puerto Rico was in bad shape before the hurricane and has a huge amount of debt to reconcile. C’mon, butthead-in-chief, where’s your compassion? Aw hell, I forgot, you have none. Never grew up with the rest of us who learned to face life without a silver spoon stuck in our mouth or other orifice.
Well, my fellow buckaroos, Gabby’s got a solution to the money crisis Trump referred to. BANKRUPTCY! Hell yes, what’s good for the goose is just as good for the gander. Actually we’re talking turkey here but I don’t want to split hairs. Four Trump bankruptcies shafted us between 1991 and 2009. Shoot, bankruptcy is as American to them high financiers as apple pie is to us. If deadbeat billionaires can do it, why not Puerto Rico?
And then buckareets, how about them taxes? Why should Puerto Rico pay its taxes to a federal government that don’t support it? And again, let’s just look to the tax-evader-in-chief. Gobble, gobble!
Gabby might slaughter English usage and he might use inappropriate language, but he ain’t stupid. NosirreeBob.
