Governor reveals that "Puerto Ricans" have mystical powers

The Governor, while discussing his grievences with the federal government and his possible indictment indicated that he has the support of "powerful mayors" (meaning mayors who can bench press at least their own body weight)and will continue on regardless of the outcome. However, what was most amazing was his revelation that Puerto Ricans have mystical powers, which include seeing into the future and knowing when some injustice has been committed.

Now seeing into the future, that's special, but being able to determine when there has been an injustice, well, that is right up there with X-Ray vision. I mean, gosh, I have three graduate degrees and I don't even know what an injustice is, much less how to identify it. So I ran out immediately and asked my Puerto Rican friends to help me understand this concept and explain to me exactly is an "injustice". Here were some of the examples they gave me to help me understand (I am still struggling to comprehend this concept, as I possess no mystical powers):

An injustice is when people are appointed to positions not based on their skill, experience, and credentials but rather, who they know, and how willing they are to turn a blind eye;
An injustice is not supporting the right of every Puerto Rican child to have a good education;
An injustice is not being able to live in low income housing without worrying about whether or not your kids will be killed in a crossfire;
An injustice is a local judiciary that hands down arbitrary and capricious decisions and regularly fails to uphold the "rule of law";
An injustice is when elected officials use their legislative power to buy votes;
An injustice is taxing the hell out of local citizens and businesses and then giving a week off to government workers;
An injustice is providing perks and escorts to elected officials and appointees while the rest of us get to sit in the daily "tapon";
An injustice is when the police are allowed to ignore the very rules they promised to enforce;
An injustice is to not enforce the parking laws and force the elderly, children, and those with handicaps to dodge traffic because the sidewalks are occupied by automobiles, including those used by public officials and the police;
An injustice is to take money in exchange for political and financial favors.

Now my friends have told me that this is a short list, and that the number of injustices that exist here in Puerto Rico are, in fact, far too numberous to outline in such a short time. I think I am begining to understand with their help, but what leaves me confused is this - the Governor says that all Puerto Ricans have this mystical power to recognized something that apparently other cultures cannot, and clearly, my friends have demonstrated to me that such a power exists and that they in fact possess it. Yet why is it that this power to recognize injustice is only possessed by regular people and not the people they elect to be their representatives? I can only guess that the price for being elected is that you lose your mystical powers. Now that is truly a great price to pay to serve the people.

This Thanksgiving we should all give thanks for their sacrifice.
