AWFUL HUMANITARIAN CRISIS … these are American citizens, this is the 21st century!! Help!!
Carlos Giusti / AP
The following tells the story of Puerto Rico, a devastated island after Hurricane Maria’s landing where too many of our fellow Americans have been left in dire straights and who are in for a long road of months towards recovery. Below is a list of how to help our neighbors in Puerto Rico.
Some officials in Puerto Rico have been asking for a temporary waiver of the Jones Act which allows for shipment of goods only via US ships. New York Rep Nydia Velazquez has asked for for this on their behalf but the republican President Donald Trump and his administration have said no.
Perhaps “we the people” can help by contacting our US lawmakers by asking them to support NY Rep Nydia Velazquez in her request to waive the Jones Act.

THREAT OF NUCLEAR WAR
It’s been a long process of posturing, back and forth, tit for tat between two deranged, egotistical ‘so-called’ leaders of two nations.
Not since 1963, during the Cuban crisis missile, had the world been so close to nuclear war.
It’s a very serious topic.
Humor is the best way to get through this in spite of the seriousness of it all.
Randy Rainbow provides much of it.
THIS IS REALLY SERIOUS
Americans are accustomed to eruptions of hostility with North Korea, but in the past six months the enmity has reached a level rarely seen since the end of the Korean War, in 1953. The crisis has been hastened by fundamental changes in the leadership on both sides.
In the six years since Kim Jong Un assumed power, at the age of twenty-seven, he has tested eighty-four missiles – more than double the number that his father and grandfather tested. Just before DrumpF took office, in January 2017, he expressed a willingness to wage a “preventive” war in North Korea, a prospect that previous Presidents dismissed because it would risk an enormous loss of life.

Yes!! The Jones Act needs to go!! 🇵🇷✊🏽🇵🇷
The time has come to remove the Jones Act in Puerto Rico.
In today’s editorial pages, the New York Times shared the urgent and powerful reasons, why this needs to happen:

“THE COLONIZED CARIBBEAN HAS TAKEN CENTER STAGE” … to the oppressing nations!
Vice-Chancellor of The University of the West Indies (UWI), and leading Caribbean historian, Sir Hilary Beckles issued the following statement on the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria:
“Hurricane Irma’s fury preceded Maria’s by a deadly Caribbean second. Together they constitute the familiar sound of death and destruction reminiscent of a colonial past that clings to the present and is determined to possess and own the Caribbean future.
The chain linked imperial legacy that still imprisons the islands, keeping them politically fragmented and economically divided, was exposed as both cause and effect of a fragile region still feeling the presence of an imperial ethos that assigns to them a reality of structural dependency. Irma-Maria blew away the roof of the long and ongoing imperial cover up, and critically, was revelatory of the horrific history that dwells in the ruins of the present.
The destruction is an instruction for the survivors…

… and this is the ‘leader’ who sits in the Oval Office’! Need I remind him that Puerto Ricans ARE American citizens?
The Island is ‘broken’ due to continued years and years of intervention by the mighty, imperialistic U.S. of A!! 🇵🇷
Trump Tweets Puerto Rico Was ‘Broken’ Before Hurricane Maria
After criticism that he had not tweeted about hurricane devastation in Puerto Rico, President Donald Trump on Monday night appeared to blame the island for its suffering.
“Texas & Florida are doing great but Puerto Rico, which was already suffering from broken infrastructure & massive debt, is in deep trouble,” Trump tweeted. “It’s [sic] old electrical grid, which was in terrible shape, was devastated. Much of the Island was destroyed, with billions of dollars owed to Wall Street and the banks which, sadly, must be dealt with.”
Must I read between the lines to see the POTUS offering condolences, empathy for the suffering citizens of Puerto Rico, support for the rebuilding of the American territory? Or perhaps, he has taken a cue from his evangelical support base……God takes revenge on those who offend….geez, what the hell did Carlos…
