Gonzo sells out his Dad
So, Gonzales is gone. Good riddance.
But he pissed me off one more time saying that he’d lived the American Dream and that even his worst day at the Justice Department was better than his father’s best day.
Well, screw him. His father, Pablo Gonzales, met Alberto’s mother when both were hard-working migrant farm workers. They raised eight children while Pablo worked construction. He died from a work-related fall in 1982.
So, what is the American Dream? Working hard but honorably and honestly to raise a family? Or is it buying power, money, and status by cozying up to rotten politicians and defending whatever despicable acts they perpetrate?
I'm sure Pablo, were he still alive, would be proud of Alberto's high status, but Alberto should be ashamed of disparaging his father's life. He should also come to understand that gaining high position by selling one's soul is NOT the American Dream.
