WES THE BEST: Pirates Of The Caribbean Aren’t Just On The High Seas When You’re Talkin’ The Virgin Islands
By WESLEY SMALL/V.I. FREE PRESS COLUMNIST
Who Are The Real Pirates Of The
These days you can’t even take a pleasure cruise off shore
without getting mugged at sea!
Recently the V.I. Free Press reported a chilling story of a French National who was shot, stabbed, beaten, and robbed by three “pirates” 1.5 miles from the shores of Frederiksted!
Apparently it’s the first act of piracy in 350 years.
It’s been that long?
Well shiver me timbers and raise the Jolly Roger! I beg to differ!
Let’s see what we have here in the Virgin Islands!
15 senators who are all overpaid and over fed! Corrupt and overpaid commissioners!
Overpriced food, high gas prices, inflated utility bills, and a governor who has a champagne taste like Nelson Rockefeller!
And that’s not piracy?
Wake up and smell the rum my shipmates!
Our elected officials are more trecherous than Blackbeard himself!
Before you know it, we’ll all be walking the plank!
So make no mistake!
The next time one of these pirates shouts: “Give me your booty!”
They’ll most likely be sporting a suit and tie!
