I wanted to write in to this blog to tell about how billionaire Jim Justice is seen here telling everyone how lucky the locals are near the Greenbriar Golf resort, as utilities were restored quickly. And how his resort has plenty of water to give to the disaster efforts as well as food from their Greenbriar Garden. The only problem was that he needed the government to send trucks and make it happen. Let me ask you… what would Ross Perot do? Organize a rescue mission maybe?
Now I don’t know if you might feel the same way I do, but given that people and children are starving without water in 100+ degree heat, if I had a billion dollars at my disposal, I’d probably have more to say about what I was personally going to do to help my home state of West Virginia. But, hey… golf has to go on no matter what. Right?
By the way: More on the PGA classic party going on in the midst of a food and water and gas shortage…: “People need to know the real story behind Jim Justice. Jim Justice and his buddy Joe Manchin worked out a deal so Jim Justice could buy the Greenbrier resort for a bargain price. Part of the deal involved a union strike when Governor Manchin had responsibility to respond to the demands of the striking workers. Manchin allowed the value of the resort to deteriorate so Justice could buy it at a bargain price. Justice sold his Bluestone coal company to the Russians around the same time. Now Jim Justice is hiding as a criminal coal operator with close ties to Don Blankenship as he puts on a show for the world at his Greenbrier Glassic PGA Tour Golf event.”
