Ignorance recognize ignorance? So you are saying you are ignorant or something? I don't think your words there mean what you had hoped they meant. I'm speculating the reason for that is you do not know what the word ignorant means.


I'm saying you were ignorant in the first place for the OP which was an hit/opinion piece..Then you were ignorant again for passing it off as fact...Then you once again showed your ignorance for calling someone else who pointed out factual information ignorant..

You see the problem is you are the ignorant one and are blinded by your ignorance...I was merely pointing out how ignorant it was for a ignorant person to post ignorant info and then call someone ignorant for not agreeing with them....

But then again you're ignorant and wouldn't understand...

Modern football wouldn't even exist without the intervention of President Theodore Roosevelt, who forced team owners to come up with safer rules or get shut down. So there's a long history of presidential intervention in football.

It's still a ridiculous sport, though, and if it wasn't for gambling nobody would even watch it.

Your bubble has lead shields to keep it from being popped.

but yea, Trump was being praised while people were suffering and still can't fly out of PR as I speak... then gets on TV saying everyone is good and we're doing a great job...

And your dog and pony show wears blinders to keep your vision as tunneled up as possible.

Forgive the good people of Puerto Rico for not climbing onto the Hate Trump bandwagon with the cool kids... they have reality to deal with. FWIW, FEMA stated yesterday that travel to the island needs to be restricted to transport directly related to life saving activity. Is Trump a doctor or an engineer? No? Then maybe, just maybe he hasn't flown into PR yet because his presence there would draw resources away from where they're presently needed most.

Hmm, from what I've read they are going to help.

USNews

You act like every politician has been spending 24/7 worrying and talking about Puerto Rico and Trump is the only one that has the audacity to talk about other things right now. They're working on helping them obviously. Your source is just sensationalized to the highest order.

I posted several sources, but here is one more that shows how Trump could have been prepared to help Puerto Rico before the storm even hit.
The ‘very big ocean’ between here and Puerto Rico is not a perfect excuse for a lack of aid

So couldn’t the government have either sent supplies in advance (as it did for Texas and Florida by truck) or sent cargo after the fact that could have gotten to Puerto Rico by now?

The answer is yes and yes.

To the second question first. The ship-tracking site MarineTraffic.com provided The Washington Post with data on two ships that left the continental United States after Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico and which either have arrived or will soon arrive there. The first is a cargo ship — the truck of the sea, if you will — named Perla Del Caribe. It left Jacksonville on Sept. 22 — two days after Maria landed — and arrived in San Juan on Tuesday afternoon.

The second is a tanker, the Overseas Long Beach, which left Houston late on Sept. 21 and was to arrive late Tuesday night.


Umm, yea not gonna subscribe to Wapo. I get more informative news from my toilet paper than from there.

Well if you aren't going to inform yourself on the content of my thread, then you probably don't belong here discussing the topic lest you agree with promoting ignorance.


Haha, so now we have to subscribe to websites only you deem worthy?

You don't have to do anything. I'm just helping you out so you don't accidentally stick your foot in your mouth over commenting on something that you didn't know was addressed in my links.


I already linked a different source that destroyed your narrative, yet you didn't reply to that post conveniently. On top of that you don't even have to subscribe and enter your personal information to read it.

Link it again. This is a fast moving thread and you guys are playing the gang up on OP game so I can't respond to everything. Though I'm trying.


I also want to let you know that I will continue to discuss whatever topic I want while bored here at work.

Do you. I was just offering suggestions. I can't help it if you insist on appearing like an idiot.


Couldn't read your source because you have to subscribe as I already stated. Unsure what's so hard to understand about that. Another thing is are you here to attack posters on baseless accusations or Trump?

I'm not the President. It isn't my job to care for the people without power, health care, or food and water.


Nor is it his.

His job is to oversee the federal government. The states should be handling relief to their people, then ask the federal government for help.

According to the Puerto Ricans, they have asked for help and it is being provided. The trouble is, its not like HEB can just drive some trucks down there to help them. Which is kinda what Trump alluded to: immediate relief tends to come from neighbors, who can't get there due to the ocean. GOvernment aid always lags a bit behind.

So you are ok with Trump not temporarily waiving the Jones Act?


Not waiving the Jones Act is what's going to reap a lot of deaths in Puerto Rice. It's prohibits aide from any other nation than the US, and aide that must be provided by US owned shipped and powered by US purchased petrol fuel.

This is worse than Katrina, way worse!

www.cnn.com...

It seems that there are really only two criticisms, neither very Earth shaking.
1. Trump hasn't said enough about PR on social media.
2. Trump hasn't visited the island.

Everything else, per this article, seems to indicate that the response has been appropriate and the various responder agencies have gotten all the support from the executive branch that they need to tackle this.


That's pretty much the sum of it. Some people whine about him using Twitter and then whine when he doesn't use Twitter the way they want him to.


As for going there, he's planning the trip. I think the MSM were so upset about how well the recent situations were handled, they wanted to get out ahead of this one to manufacture some negativity. I am sure they were devastated that more people didn't die in Florida and Texas, so they could blame Trump.

I could be wrong, but the waiver system for the executive branch does not include acts of congress. That would be our legislators that need to vote on a waiver.

Yeah but scrolling leads to more of the same. I wouldn't mind it but it's the same redundant crap with his supporters and detractors EVERY TIME.

I've been waiting for one of the Trump haters to start a thread about how Puerto Ricans and virgin Islanders are darker than he is which makes them unimportant.

I live in a remote port city, so I support the Jones Act. That said, I have no problem with the feds lifting it for this particular scenario, nor would I particularly disagree if they chose to keep it in effect.

Homeland Security can issue a waiver, and the President presides over Homeland Security, so......


In recognition of the severity of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the US Department of Homeland Security approved a waiver of the federal Jones Act, which will be in effect for seven days after signature and is specifically tailored to transportation of refined products in hurricane-affected areas. 
The waiver will ensure that over the next week, all options are available to distribute fuel to states and territories impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

The governing body in Puerto Rico should alert everyone that Hurricane Maria blew over some trees that had grown over the world's largest gold mine, the Mother of ALL Mother Lodes, then on the other side of the road, there were oil deposits that a company or 4 could make billion$$$... Better yet, "ISIS™ " did it, then We could throw trillion$ at it..


KrazyShot- Mentioning Puerto Rico's financial woes is Donnie bending at the knee to His overlords on Wall St. who will once again enjoy record profits this year and if those who don't, just raise the taxes on the middle class (can't get rid of them fast enough)
