Subject: BS: Puerto Rico last in line

3.2 million peopled are characterized as people who do not pay their debts. "The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump," he wrote.

San Juan mayor calls Puerto Rico crisis 'something close to genocide'
There are no comparisons that should be made to Texas or Florida.
Donald Trump says Puerto Rico is 'an island surrounded by big water'
San Juan Mayor slams US officials over response to Maria relief effort
"Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help.

"They want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort. 10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job."

Mr Trump has defended his administration's response to the recent hurricane in Puerto Rico by explaining that the island is "surrounded by water".

He added that local governments had been "totally and unfortunately unable to handle this catastrophic crisis on their own – just totally unable to."

What media has not reported are the 8 police officers killed so far.
Throwing mud at Trump or the mayor or the San Juan mayor does nothing but make things worse.

The veneer of civilization is thinner than we think. If there has been a deliberate delay in aiding PR I do not know of it. The dangerous time for any devastated community is week 6 +. That is when the weakest die and the savage nature of man is exposed.

Having Bangladesh like disasters in the US has been shocking but inevitable. In the back of my brain I fear the racist hubris of my President is costing lives.

If you leave your brain by the door and slip into Donald's shoes imagine the horror, anguish and frustration of having to allow people with little capital, less than white skin, Spanish speaking people into the US without a ban. Then getting slapped by a mayor who snuffs his 'fantastic recovery' story. Ouch.

Lt General Russell Honore' ret. of Katrina mobilization fame had the best organized recommendations I have heard; free tank of gas, Verizon mobile phone towers and allow "immigration" for up to a million people , then get to work on power water hospitals and finally homes.

Last week NBC drove the PR highway 130 miles into the highlands all on camera. The road was perfectly clear. Residents asked if NBC was FEMA.

It has all been a lie that blocked roads prevents delivery of water and food.

Republican Congressmen are now declaring that aid to PR should be limited to 3 Billion and not seven which is way too much. They are now saying PR wants Xtra relief which is not the case.

The air port in PR is now privatized. There is privatization going on everywhere in PR as the process of what the Mafia hoped to do to Cuba as seen in The Godfather but Wall street crooks are the mob today.

The electric grid will be privatized right AFTER it is restored with FEMA money.

The privatization financers started this process back in 2012. PR never got bailout after the 2008 collapse , they just had a fatal 30 year debt assembled by hedge fund investors.

This is all seemingly complex corruption so I am writing this in terms we can understand.

A PR diaspora will leave real estate deals for pennies on the dollar.

We will hear the real whispers by financiers into Trumps ear regarding the real plans for Puerto Rico if we only listen.

FEMA is an emergency response agency under the control of Homeland Security HLS.

One problem is that no one is now in charge of HLS until Trump appoints someone to be director of Homeland Security.

General Kelly now Chief of Staff was director of HLS but he is now in the White House desperately trying to contain The Donald.

It seems to me no one is in charge of the White House either.

Ever notice how some people miss the point all their life.
While POTUS condemns and castigates the people of PR he has no concept of, live by what I call Island time. PR is the tropics. People move not by clock but rather by today or tomorrow. It is a more natural state of being most of us will never enjoy. It is also weakened by Dengue' Fever, Malaria, STDs and Zika.

Sounds grim but Even San Diego has epidemics like Hep A
Hurricane deaths are few but disease is what will decimate the living in as little as two seasons.

I can only imagine that if Karma exists , Donald is a secret carrier of a PR virus injected by a now nauseated mosquito and the white house may soon become ground zero in return for the crass treatment and shoddy policy aimed at PR.

Good news,
I heard my from my oldest brother tonight who was recently rescued by Osprey aircraft that set down on a little league field and the family is now under jurisdiction of the Marines. He has to stay at the destroyed home (50 days no power) to wait for a FEMA case manager assessor. Word is, two years from now until power can be restored. The phone signal would fade out but was never dropped.

He is set for medicine through the VA. There was an heroic tale of getting his daughter to emergency care.

Steven has three professional emergency management titles but without electricity and loss of all his radio transmitters he was just an average refugee (his word).

Two walls are destroyed but the concrete roof held. There are no possessions.




PS I even have 2 estranged younger brothers but I was raised as an only child.
Such is the nature of war.

Yep he has a heroic postman we will bet on and a temp post office is open.

who is surprised?

If I sound jaded, I'm sorry.
I guess I have never gotten over
the utter shame of what happened after Hurricane Katrina.

Trump went to Puerto Rico and threw paper towels at people. Bush thanked Brownie for doing a great job. Both were awful, but you'd think in this day and age the current administration would learn from mistakes of the past.

If it isn't about Trump, he doesn't want to hear about it. He doesn't have a golf course there, so fuck 'em. And the expensive shipping rules are back in place. It's a nasty piece of work.

By the rules of trump racism there are some US citizens who are treated less than citizens and punished to the point of covering up their deaths which is tantamount to murder.

In my present home state of Massachusetts,
the displaced families from Puerto Rico
are not having an easy time of it.
Massachusetts has done much to help them,
and yet it is neither simple nor easy.

There are laws in place which limit the aid they can receive,
and homelessness threatens many of these families.
The US Congress members from Massachusetts are in their corner;
however there are still many obstacles in their way.

This has been an especially emotional time
for families whose children are seniors in high school.
Some of them have graduated, after much support and hard work;
others floundered and dropped out, overwhelmed by the challenges.

Yup Steve was my brother. Owing to Maria and his responsibilities to his Downs syndrome daughter, old age and being last in line, he died months after the storm.
