Another example of a leader whose short-and-curlies got knotted by the IMF, WB and the cronies until he screamed and then they made him sing about how much he liked it. People of PR… not so much , eh?

Well they may get rid of this clown, but unfortunately they can’t get rid of the bond market, who will continue to squeeze them dry.

As despicable as Rossello is, he is still just a mid level employee of the corporate US empire.
His successor will be forced to take orders from the same group of tyrants Rosello serves, and Puerto Ricans will in all likelihood still get shafted.

Wow. And he didn’t even grab their pussy…

Hi Unmentionables…
400, 000 angry people—maybe that stupid man will wise up and hire a rowboat for a row away from 400,000 angry people. Perhaps this is the same amount of people who will no doubt turn out in the streets if Wall st. etc. tries any more dirty tricks. HOPE does spring eternal. : )

This is how you do it.
I remember when we used to do it too: Vietnam, Civil Rights, etc. We don’t anymore.

At least Puerto Rican’s Have guts. American’s are presided over by the most humiliating caricature of a derelict demagogue imaginable, and not much of a peep from anyone, despite our 330 million; indeed many go out in favor of this jackass. It’s hard to be humble when your completely humiliated instead.

Todos huelga!

It’s the same here.

Trump thinks that he can keep governing for another year and a half, even with ample evidence of his criminality.

Someone just needs to rip Pelosi and the Democratic leadership out of the driver’s seat, and move full steam ahead with open impeachment hearings.

F#€k the Senate and every enabler within it if they want to throw their careers away covering for a bloated, bloviating boob in a suit and tie that respects nothing but his own self.

Let’s get the tar and feathers ready.

Clean out the jails of all the non-violent offenders.

We have true scum of the Earth to wipe off of our shoes and put in a place where they’ll never again be heard of.

Just hurry up and make Puerto Rico a state. 2 more Democratic senators will help the senate imbalance.

Wow. (Don’t forget it’s a Democrat that is corrupt here.)

Wouldn’t it just be extraordinary and get all sorts of press, especially here at Common Dreams, if a presidential candidate went down there and called all the candidates to come down to stand in solidarity with the Puerto Ricans?

Oh, wait…

I’m guessing that a young Congress Woman of Puerto Rican descent may have helped to catalyze this demonstration. This is what the oligarchs hate–people in the street.
