political parties in here. The P.N.P. (Pro-statehood) and the P.P.D. (The pro-Commonwealth Party). They can not see eye to eye. If one puts up an
idea the other one will shoot it down. [Edited by Don W]
Sounds like you have the same Red State versus Blue State situation in PR we have up here. Gridlock.
The Senate and the House of Representatives are guilty. The mayor over spends also. Most of his people have 3 or 4 assistants when 1 or 2
will be better. They have official cars and drivers, escorts and a army of body guards. These are some of the things that got Puerto Rico's
government into this financial crisis. As a foot note I heard a school - Rafael Hernandez Middle School - tried to open this morning but the teachers
and students were taken out of the school by the State Police.
Has Jack Abramoff been visiting to PR lately? The same problem around the world. The ruling elite do not want to share with the impoverished, nor do
they want to pay taxes.
Thanks WWPR for sharing an inside story.
By the way, which do you think, Statehood or Independence, would carry if a vote were held today?
