THE ANTIDOTE FOR FIFTY ENEMIES IS ONE FRIEND -  Aristole


President Obama said that he had been to every corner of the United States, "I've now been in 57 states, I think I have one left to go".  His actions to the contrary--he won't say Islamic Terrorist--he says he is not a Muslim.  You know what, there are 57 states in the Islamic Conference. Or, was he just including  Puerto Rico?

COLUMBUS IN PUERTO RICO
Before Columbus, then Ponce de Leon arrived, the Taino Indians had populated Puerto Rico since 430 BC, with cities and advanced agricultural methods.  Convinced the Conquistadors were immortal gods, they allowed themselves to be made into slaves.  Today 61% of all Puerto Ricans have Taino Indian DNA.

TAINO INDIANS
One day Taino Chief Urayoan questioned that the white men were really gods, and decided upon a test.  They held conquistador Diego Salcedo under water for 15 minutes, then watched his body for three days.  If he was a god, he couldn't be killed, could he?  With only crude weapons against guns, six thousand Taino were unceremoniously slaughtered and a one-sided 8 year war resulted in the Taino becoming nearly extinct.  Spain then brought in African slaves who were more resilient to branding, starvation and back breaking labor than were the Taino Indians.

IT IS A TRUE FRIEND THAT THINKS YOU ARE A GOOD EGG WHEN YOU ARE REALLY HALF CRACKED


CLICK ON HEART
 Today Puerto Rico is an unincorporated territory of the United States.  Although its people are citizens and subject to U.S. law, they cannot vote.  15,000 of the educated leave the island each year leaving the island older and poorer.  More than half of all Puerto Ricans live in New York.  The island is crowded.  On the island, they are laid back people always willing to help.  In New York, they are just the opposite, a real problem.  They pay no federal income tax.

IT TAKES 20 YEARS TO BUILD A REPUTATION AND 5 MINUTES TO RUIN IT.  IF YOU THINK ABOUT THAT, YOU'LL DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY - Warren Buffet


PUERTO PRODUCES 80% OF ALL RUM
A RUM TOAST
May your anchor be tight
Your cork be loose
Your rum be spiced
And, your compass be true

Perhaps Puerto Rico's $72 BILLION debt made President Obama feel like it was just part of his administration, you suppose?
