So why wasn't Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez all over this. Her mother was born in Puerto Rico. Does Alexandria have issues? I think that she needs to drop back five and punt. I have had enough of her bashing. She seems to thrive on manipulation and self bravado. Is she mule for the bad guys?




Special Agent in Charge Douglas Leff said no other agency field office in the country is facing what his San Juan office is facing in terms of crime. Text





In addition to ongoing recovery efforts from the devastation caused by hurricanes Maria and Irma, and a struggling economy, Puerto Rico is experiencing a wave of violence and crime primarily linked to gang activity and drug trafficking. Local authorities have struggled to curb the mounting insecurity.

Sounds as though the US is doing what it does about security - nothing.

This looks like a fishing expedition thread. Since those typically garner outlandish responses, I want to throw my hat in the ring.

I'm going with Whoopi Goldbergs theory.

Whoopi Goldberg asks AOC to stop pooping on other democrats.

Even if she could achieve an average of 2 or 3 BM's a day, it's going to be a while before the serial pooper can leave her mark on all of them.

Maybe after she accomplishes that goal can she skid mark Puerto Rico.

I have always liked Puerto Rico. So now that place is going to hell? So she starts running a thread that she's of Jewish decent. I mean freaking come on and so what if you are. Your roots from your Mom are a direct line to Puerto Rico. What about Aunts, Uncles, Cousins? So I guess if she bails on Puerto Rico will she also bail on the USA just like the MSM. Me thinks ya.

After the huge storm hit there and caused power outages that are finally fixed, this is an entirely different "brown out".
This would require much different clean up.

Puerto Rico is an example of how America has bastardized and or abandoned our roots of who we are.

They are a result of imperialism and taxation without representation, the very things we started a revolution over.

I don't expect her to do anything, her constituents are in New York, and even if she decided to draft a bill to "stop the violence" (lol), it would sink faster than her logs on democrats.

This issue is a zero sum game.

I say we build a wall around Puerto Rico too so it keeps in the violence.

Poor Whoopi. She's such a moron she doesn't understand the difference between a socialist and a democrat. I know that the subtleties are easy to lose sight of, but the bottom line is AOC is a DINO (at least until the party is pulled even further left and abandons any hope of gaining a rural vote).

We could send Elizabeth Warren down to do a rain dance.

Should be safe, she's partial Native American, so it couldn't be too strong of a storm.

Not picking on you here...you just say interesting things.

I think you are right. 100%.

PR isn't the only island state we do this with. How many representatives exist in Congress who do not get a vote?

I think she just hates everyone. Remember when she flipped out on that reverse centaur?

Either way, what do we expect when someone makes a show about a group of older women gossiping? Lol.

Great idea!
It is outside the box thinking using global warming to our advantage that is gonna get us through this crisis.
well done!

The island would have been much safer if that hurricane was only 1/1024 strong.

And sadly it creates a situation where the corruption in their local governments is actually worse than in ours.

The stories of money grabs after the hurricane in Puerto Rico were horrendous.

And it's only going to get worse, basically the reconstruction effort is going to be done by corporations giving PR predatory loans. We'll eventually have to bail them out, and who makes out in that situation?

A broken system is only useless if you can't use it to your advantage, we still have hope.

Is it bad that in this scenerio I find taste in jokes that lack any sort of tact?

I've played my mental gymnastics and have concluded that no, we are righteous on this one AM.

If we hijack the outrage culture, we could just maybe, just maybe, bring attention back to the ginger stepchild of America.
