Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Democrats want to give more money to Puerto Rico to rebuild from a hurricane that occurred two years ago. Trump says we already gave them plenty and they pissed it away(not specifically in those words, more’s the pity, but that’s the idea).
Isn’t the US constantly being criticized as an imperial power? Shouldn’t we liberate the people on that island from our domination? Why aren’t they as independent and self-sufficient as their neighbors on Haiti and Cuba?
Free Puerto Rico. Fly, little bird. Spread your wings and make your way in the world . . . on your own dime. No backs.
“Freedom” isn’t very cost effective for professional bureaucrats.
