“PUERTO RICO … LET IT SINK BACK IN THE OCEAN”

(Remember “West Side Story”?)

It’s no secret. Puerto Rico has a huge financial debt.

To those who don’t know, it seems that it’s all Puerto Rico’s fault.

“After  years of wild overspending …. “

There’s so much more.

I’ve learned so much about my country as a senior citizen than as a senior in school. That makes me sad because my country’s history isn’t taught the way it should be.

When I saw the video posted below, I could barely contain my anger.

It’s all based on lies … yet again, what isn’t?

This is what I woke up to this morning … 

Dark Money” group spends $200,000 in TV ads, to keep Puerto Rico from receiving any debt relief

A group called the “Center for Individual Freedom” (CFIF) has purchased $200,000 in TV ads in the Washington D.C. media market, to convince legislators to deny Puerto Rico any immediate debt relief.

The ads will air on Fox, NBC, ABC and CBS affiliates in the D.C. area. They will also run on local D.C. news programs, as well as the Sunday, April 10, episode of “Meet the Press.”

There are so many facts that the general public doesn’t know.

Of, course, the media doesn’t report them.

I found another article/source that I would like to share with you.

Please, take some time to take a look.

Thank you!

10 F*CKED UP FACTS ABOUT PUERTO RICO
The economic crisis isn’t the only thing we should care about

By Gabe Gonzalez Posted on March 31, 2016

Puerto Rico is an island rich in history, art, and culture. It’s where my family grew up and it’s a place near and dear to my heart. While the economic crisis affecting the commonwealth has raised awareness about one issue facing the island, there’s a bit more to it than that.
I’ve compiled this list not to focus on the “negative” aspects of the realities that face Puerto Rico, but rather, to share some challenges Puerto Ricans overcome every day.

These might come as no surprise to those living on the island, but here are ten f*cked up facts about Puerto Rico:

Puerto Ricans pay more and get less in social Security benefits

The US military used Puerto Rico as a bomb testing site

Puerto Ricans pay insane utility rates

While Puerto Rico’s homicide rate is falling, it’s about 5X higher than the US average

Doctors are leaving Puerto Rico at an alarming rate

Puerto Rico is running out of money to pay for public school necessities

In 2015, ten business people were arrested for bribing the government and embezzling money

The CDC expects 80% of people in Puerto Rico will contract the ZIKA virus

A US District judge upheld the ban on gay marriage in Puerto Rico

(this has been overturned, as of this writing)

Puerto Rico’s economy relies heavily on Wal-Mart.

CFIF Launches National Media Campaign to Oppose House “Super Chapter 9” Bankruptcy Legislation for Puerto Rico

According to Sunlight Foundation’s Political Ad Sleuth tool, a 501(c)(4) dark money group called the Center for Individual Freedom (CFIF) has purchased at least $200,000 in ads in the Washington, D.C., market, an attempt to influence lawmakers crafting economic legislation to assist Puerto Rico’s dire financial situation.

The territory is currently struggling under enormous debt obligations and is seeking help from Congress and the federal government.

  1. Thank you, Dr. Rex, for posting these articles on Puerto Rico. We must continue to unite and fight as a people. Our beautiful island needs us, especially the support and help from our people in the usa. Nuestra isla, nuestra tierra es nuestras madre and we must protect her.

    • Thank YOU, Maria …. for stopping by & leaving this wonderful comment. You are correct … We must continue. The fight continues … PR needs all of us.
      Question: have you heard about the book “War Against All Puerto Ricans”? If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it.
      Please, do come back. Abrazos!!

  2. Yes, I have read the book and it left me without words. I am puerto rican but left our home young to come to america. Knew little of our history, very general information. This book was an eye opener.
    Now, I cannot stop reading about our history, trying to catch up.

    • I totally understand, Maria. My situation is similar. I grew up under the idea that the US was a benefactor, etc. I found out about the book last year. Read it in 1 weekend. Like you, I’m still speechless … I moved to FL in 1999.
      I’m saddened, angry, upset … All I can do is spread the word, like you.
      I had the honor of meeting, listening and speaking with Nelson A. Denis … he’s an incredible source of knowledge. I learned through his book.
      May I ask where in the US you live?

  3. Hi Dr Rex, our family left Puerto Rico to NYC, grew up there, but now I am living in Miami Beach Florida. They never talk about our history in school in America. It is as if we do not exist. Have been reading a lot lately, catching up. Reading also in spanish, always with a Spanish English dictionary next to me, Ha! Reading Julia de Burgos “Yo Misma Fui MI Ruta”
    Our history is extraordinary!
    But our country is not doing well. Visited last summer Puerto Rico after so many years and was shock in the condition the island is in. This is not the Puerto Rico that I remember as a child. My father’s home town Manati, is a ghost town. This was shock to see. But still how beautiful es nuestra isla. There is something about our land, nuestra tierra is very special!

  4. Yes we live in the same state Florida! My full name is Maria Morales
    Thank you again for the link on the book. Mr. Denis is doing an incredible job, if it wasn’t for him, wouldn’t know what happening in our country.
