LOL! You guys always try to paint everything you don't like as "leftist". Protesting issues in this country is what makes this country great and it always has. Sometimes you have to ruffle feather to do it. And yeah if Trump tells his supporters to boycott the NFL, that is tampering because they WILL do it. A president should never interfere with a private company like that. As a CEO Trump should know this. If the NFL starts losing revenue they can probably sue Trump.
Oh that's rich. I hope the Tea Party sues Obama for his targeting them for political reasons. That was illegal as the day was long. Did you care? I bet not.

You didn't prove anything. My initial post was a response to Neo's post that was saying "The best thing that happened to Puerto Rico was getting hit. They were already bankrupt. Now cash is guaranteed to be flowing in out of sympathy."

I replied by saying "Let me guess, yet another hypocrite who complains about Americans kneeling for the flag because of "patriotism", yet is fine with Americans suffering, dying, losing their homes & properties, etc in a hurricane?"

That's the context for my other posts. I was referring to the hypocrites who complain about patriotism with the flag, but then think that Americans getting crushed by a hurricane is a good thing because of sympathy cash. Unless your link proved that its the flag worshipers and people like Neo who are donating money to Puerto Rico, then you didn't prove crap.


Oh bullcrap. Don't backpeddle your way out of this statement:

I'm interested to hear how it has to do with the oppression of White people and Second Amendment rights, myself.



Don't forget the religious angle. More than 95% of Puerto Ricans are Christians according to this, yet that doesn't seem to be gaining them any sympathy from our supposedly pro-Christian right wing. The right is literally having to be pressured in the press and social media to get involved with helping their fellow Christian Americans in Puerto Rico.

Let's make sure they remember this every time they complain about a "war on Christmas" and the Left's supposed "war on Christianity"...


This wasn't just directed at Neo, nor did it have any contextual link to patriotism or anything other than you making a failing attempt to swat at Christians. YOU FAILED. Christians in America are donating to relief efforts and Christian charities are boots on the ground in Puerto Rico. Franklin Graham's group was among the first responders into the territory after Irma, let alone after Maria hit. Franklin Graham, for your distinct edification, was also the pastor who conducted the benediction at President Trump's inauguration. So by all means, tell us how "right wing" American Christians are hypocrites while there are large numbers of them donating money, time, and talents to help Puerto Rico recover from these two hurricanes... and please, add a little bass to your voice and use some deep tones to do so rather than back peddaling out of the argument with some ridiculous BS about context.
Hey I have an idea why don't the NFL players donate their money and boots on the ground to PR. You know since they care so much....

To be fair to Trump there is not much that can be done at the moment.

The infrastructure is shot and plane can't land on cluttered runways with damaged towers so I'd make that a priority. But of course the is the option of navy destroyers to deliver vitals but they can't exactly be scrambled like fighter jets so it would take time to deploy them. Choppers don't have the range and air drops take a while to coordinate.

Trump maybe weighing up his options but these things take time, maybe the SG is handling things-who knows.

Yes exactly, he said the power grid has to be completely rebuilt etc
That's why I got ticked off at oeople. criticizing him because they don't have a clue. No matter what he does or doesn't do they are going to hate him.

So, can the NRA sue Obama and Clinton, then? Can Ford Motor Company sue Obama since his administration effectively forced them to accept tax dollars when they said they didn't need nor want them? Can the big oil companies sue DC democrats over all the BS attacks and calls for alternative energy? How about Apple Corps and all the money they lost thanks to the federal government forcing them to unlock an iPhone? How about FOXnews and various conservative media platforms suing Obama for pushing a secondary boycott against advertisers, in an effort to silence opposition to his agenda, as Ben Shapiro clearly demonstrated in 2013?

The office of POTUS has a long history of "tampering" with private companies. Your suggestion here is ridiculous and your bias is blatantly obvious.

Why isnt anyone asking other world leaders to help?
Why is this entirely OUR responsibility?

I keep hearing how these are Americans.....

This is Puerto Rico. Another country. They should get HELP, not an all inclusive fix served on a silver platter.

We have actual states in crisis now. Every dollar and able body should go to them.

And we still have our own natural disasters to face. The year isnt over.



Yes all the supporters of the UN and World government should immediately demand help from all the member nations. Oh wait the US is the biggest funder of the UN.... I forgot(not)

What the NFL players did was completely legal. I'm pretty sure tampering is not. I don't really care about Obama or irrelevant red herrings about what past presidents have done. These triggered rightists are blind and hate America!!

That's the problem. The clock was ticking before the hurricane hit. Knowing that this was a massive disaster moving in slow motion, Emperor Snowflake did next to nothing except to tweet out some BS about PR's debt. Seriously...........how incompetent does he have to be before the cultists realize it?!?!? And, don't BS me with the 17,000 troops; most of them just arrive or are in the process of arriving. They are not set up yet; something they should have been doing several days ago.

Again, it will take a few more days before construction equipment and more fuel arrives. It will take several more days to clear the stuff off the roads and get to the interior of the islands. By that time, who knows what the state will be of those people that have not had water/food for 3-4 weeks. This is an absolute disaster caused by yet again, Right Wing incompetence.....this time it will be worse than Katrina.

In the meanwhile, your Orange Monkey will continue to tweet about the NFL. Nice.

There are 17,000 soldiers and aid workers in PR right now, with ships waiting at the ports to offload supplies. It's not going to be fixed overnight, it's going to take some time


Several days ago was a second hurricane, plus we had our own issues mainland...you really expect relief efforts overnight?

No, but the planning and execution of relief should have been done immediately. Especially considering the fact that we knew that the entire island would be without power.

They began planning things almost immediately. It's hard to gauge the devastation immediately after. Like with hurricane Katrina, FEMA and the state had supplies ready to go before the storm, but the storm ended up wiping out those supplies and it took a while to find this out and get new supplies to the area

A lot of people in the US have not clue how PR works, is not like US at all and what the media feeds people that what people believes.

Most of the news media that are in PR from US are stuck in San Juan been fed by la Commandant that is the name the PR government workers call the Major because she is political hag, using the Island disaster to pursue her bid for the governors seat, she is corporate whore.

So, what you are saying is that taking aid to Puerto Rico takes the same time as it takes to make a tweet?... Or maybe you think that "nothing else should be done when an island like Puerto Rico is affected by a disaster". Is that your argument?...

Heck, btw, since it took you longer to write this bs thread how much aid were you able to get to Puerto Rico yourself?...

Saw the post, thought "this could be interesting", saw the poster's name, and immediately tuned out. Krazy, you need to just drop it. He IS your president, and will be for another 7 years. His tweets got you lefties all worked up, meanwhile, he's pushing for 6% economics growth, will be passing travel bans, will be building the wall, and there's nothing you can and will do about it. Keep looking at the shiny object he holds in his left hand, while the right hand is signing executive orders.
You'd think you guys would have learned by now. His tweets are a smoke screen to keep you guys focused on the trivial, while he gets stuff done in the background.

And how do you propose this? The infrastructure is screwed. The ports are screwed.
You guys really don't think the issues through before posting meaningless crap, do you? Disaster areas are just that. A disaster. "Like, oh my god, why don't they, like, just send aid, like, how totally mean can you be!?!? Nasty Trump, not sending aid, to, like, a disaster area!!!! #notmypresident".

Trump addresses criticism over Puerto Rico disaster response: 'It's out in the ocean — you can't just drive your trucks there'
Gonna be quick because I posted this too early. Trump started out by defending his lackluster response to helping PR by declaring there is an ocean between us and the island.

"This isn't like Florida where we can go up the spine. This isn't like Texas where we go right down the middle and we distribute," Trump said. "This is a thing called the Atlantic Ocean. This is tough stuff."

No #. Of course. That means you need to prepare more thoroughly. We had plenty of time to get ready, but Trump cares more about tweeting about the NFL than helping these people.

man... Talking about football instead was STUPID.

Totally right,

Just last night a military man said there isn't enough being done, there is also a dispute as to how many containers from FEMA are actually there. Sure they may be some people taking advantage on the island, but if there is a need for more helicopters for instance, they should be there, and the military man says there isn't given the nature of the problem.
Then there are those tweets..when there was little action,



Can you see what he is doing there...Oh! PR owes the banks in big doodah...Texas, Florida...doing great!

What he doesn't say is that Texas and Florida are also billions in debt, more than twice as much as PR...but their 'fine'

What he also doesn't mention at all..since it would be bad for his ego, is that $33million of PR's debt is from one of his failed 'partnership' golf courses that went bankrupt. This man cares not for anybody except himself and his imagined prestige, and should be kicked out somehow. Yuk, he's disgusting.

CNN camera crew in tow and why couldn't they give their own lunch away to the starving people there or use CNN helicopters to transport the people... it's because CNN don't give a cr$& except for ratings With leftists


Holy sh87!! The disconnect..

Trump is President of the United States of America, FEMA and Disaster Response are his responsibility.

Your reply is hey...how about that reporter give someone their sandwich! Problem solved!

You can't be this ignorant on purpose?
It's commentary on how the Left operates. If they want to criticize they can just back it up with their superior ideas.


Ideological projection?

Healthcare anyone?
Or actual governing at all?

The GOP seems to have the heckle thing down, but is a circus train of failure thus far for leadership or solutions.
