My friend, if you can't tell which one is easier to get to, you have no business talking to another human being.

You're comparing the accessibility of Texas to Puerto Rico, a state which has every resource under the sun, plus other citizens who were wiling to drive and aid them, to an island, that only has 1 port which was accessible.

The military doesn't help unless it's the national guard, so you stop crying about them.

Unfortunately, no one knows the real numbers. All everyone on the island knows for certain is that there are still thousands without service. And the power is barely restored to those whom do have it. The slightest wire being touched causes island-wide blackouts. We will be back to square 1 if another hurricane hits. The electrical workers were instructed to reuse damaged material instead of fixing it with new supplies. So, a lot of it was just American workers (who looked like the cast from Swamp People, most of the time, lol, so I can guess they're southern) telling Puerto Ricans that they'd stitch it back together as soon as a community offered them bribe money, block by block. A lot of people paid.

Big banks certainly abuse that preference that was put in place by the Federal government to help develop Puerto Rico.

Learn something before you come on here looking to cast blame on only some.
Racism is not why it wasn't made a state, several times the Puerto Ricans voted on becoming a state, and each time they voted NO on the topic because they did not want to lose their autonomy. Why don't you learn something before you start screaming racism for the misfortunes that are a result of a peoples own doing.

21+ Billion dollars a year in federal aid is what USA gives Puerto Rico, they should've had money falling out of the coffers, instead the go to conspiracy nowadays is big banks. You think big banks are thrilled that they gave Puerto Rico over 70 billion dollars that they now cannot repay and therefore will have to eat the cost? What you're saying is equivalent to blaming a credit card company for offering a college student money that he now cannot repay. The lack of personal accountability is just astonishing, everyone wants to be a victim.

Red- Why don't you learn something? When the US took control of Puerto Rico, they didn't make it a state because they didn't want give power to non-whites. If it was made a state they would be given electoral college votes o select the president. And which of your racist ancestors would be cool given power to majority Hispanic state?

Green - Again, why won't you try and learn before speaking? Some of the Big Banks got a bond floated about 2-3 weeks before Puerto Rico actually defaulted. The suckers who bought those bonds are who are left holding the ***** bucket.

LEARN! It's not that hard!

Trump-bashing Puerto Rican mayor reportedly facing FBI corruption probe

The mayor of Puerto Rico who shot to international fame after criticizing President Trump for not doing enough to help Hurricane Maria victims is being investigated by the FBI on corruption charges, according to multiple news outlets.

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz and her administration are under fire for allegedly obstructing critical supplies from reaching victims of the category-4 hurricane that leveled much of the tiny U.S. territory nearly nine months ago.

The FBI reportedly launched the investigation following a February lawsuit filed by Yadira Molina, the former director of procurement. Molina claims she was retaliated against for reporting “alleged irregular acts” to the local comptroller.


“On February 21, Molina sued the city council after reporting alleged acts of corruption in the shopping division in the town hall under the administration of Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz Soto,” according to El Vocero de Puerto Rico.

The report says Molina claims she was punished for reporting on the allegedly rigged system and that she was blocked from her right “to report wrongdoing in her capacity as a private citizen, not as a public employee.”

Shortly after Cruz became mayor, Molina claims a supply company was granted “preferred supplier” status which paid them more than three times what regular suppliers made. She also alleges that other city officials engaged in a corrupt scheme to steer business the preferred supplier’s way.

Concerns about Cruz are not new. There has been a growing backlash from frustrated residents who say they feel forgotten and say the mayor’s personal political ambitions are coming at the expense of the very people she’s supposed to be representing.

For example, at a time when residents needed food, water and shelter, Cruz hired extra photographers to follow her around post-storm.

“She comes out, goes on television and pats herself on the back,” Simon Menendez, a small business owner in San Juan, told Fox News. “It stopped being about us a long time ago.”

News. “It stopped being about us a long time ago.”

A bartender at a popular hotel in Old San Juan told Fox she feels like a political pawn. But complaints from constituents are largely being ignored.

Instead, Cruz’s feud with the president over recovery efforts have turned her into a liberal star – and it’s a role she seems to be relishing. Her global close-up has morphed into a parade of self-promotion.

She’s showed up on numerous television shows – including The Late Show with Stephen Colbert – and scored a high-profile invite to the State of the Union as the guest of New York Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.

She was also featured on Time magazine as one of the most influential people of 2018.

Last month, she traveled to Connecticut to receive the “Latina Champion” award at the Latinas & Power Symposium, which promotes Hispanic professional women. She then went on to Boston to receive an honorary doctorate and give the baccalaureate address at Boston University.

Back home in Puerto Rico, officials say the island remains in desperate need of help and is woefully unprepared should another storm hit soon. Among other things, there is little to no water or diesel fuel for generators. This year’s hurricane season started June 1.

A new Harvard University study published in the New England Journal of Medicine estimates the number of people who died in Puerto Rico as the result of Maria could top 4,600. The official number issued by the U.S. territory is 64.

Multiple attempted to reach Cruz were unsuccessful.

An FBI spokesperson said the agency does not comment on ongoing investigations.

But its Trump's fault doe.
It's known that the FBI targets people for political purposes, at least on the island. Where are they on Whitefish? Hmm?

As to Yulin, as I've said, I don't care about her, and I wouldn't be surprised if she were corrupt, because damn near everyone is here. But why does she matter?

Because she said the truth.

That's why.

And even if it were true that she established some sort of preference for suppliers, that has nothing to do with Trump's power or the US' power; they could have helped out the island.

One woman did not stop the whole of the United States.

Accept that you guys abandoned us, already, and stop looking for scapegoats.

They're called vulture loans for a reason; the amount of money we owe isn't what was given to us. It has accrued significant interest, obviously. And, again, our economy basically gives everything up to the U.S.

These aren't conspiracy theories; they're cold, hard facts.

Yeah just like a college kid taking out a credit card at 24% interest will have to pay back more money than he borrowed.
