  1. And all because of tRumpsky’s ALLEGED claims of “corruption” and “fiscal irregularities.” Of course, as the old saying goes, it takes one to know one. Although in this case, I think he was making it up because they were mostly “brown” people who lived there.

    In any event, such blatant disrespect towards people in need is appalling and unconscionable!

    • Hello Nan. Yes, so true. The fact is people like tRump, and his cult do not see brown people as real US citizens. They absolutely do not see Puerto Rico as part of the US, and they do not see the people who live there as US citizens. It is horrible in so many ways. The US made the situation that has caused so much hardship on the island with laws congress passed back in the 1970 / 1980’s about what taxes from businesses that the Island could collect and yet what services they had to provide. So the government of the island couldn’t get income yet was forced to provide services and it caused them to constantly run in the red. Then people like tRump claim the people caused the financial crisis and wanted to punish them for it. But again bigotry and racism is causing hardship, harm, cruelty, and suffering to people of color due to the wealthy white leaders in Washington DC. Hugs

      OT. How have you been? Everything OK. Hugs

        • Hello Nan. Really glad all is well for you. We got a night and part of the day with on and off rain, some hard. But other than lower temps, it is now 85, and a nice wind we did not suffer anything from the storm. Hugs
