POWER TO THE PEOPLE

Puerto Rico is a colony of the mighty, imperialistic US of A.

 The USA invaded the Island in 1898. It took over from the free authority of the people to impose their values and orders.

(Sounds familiar?)

In the process it used, abuse, stole, imposed views, subjugated individuals, incarcerated many and much more on the people of Puerto Rico.

The response generated after Hurricane María battered the Island shows the ‘heart‘ of the American governance.

It’s time for Puerto Rico to be on its own feet. It can’t be done overnight. It has to be a gradual process.

No one will come to save the Island.

The people will have to rise!

Need I say more?

I was in Puerto Rico last week.

I returned on Tuesday, May 29, that was the day when I became aware of the results of this study.

I knew this was true even after the first few days after Hurricane María battered the Island.

I will never forget or forgive the current American administration or the current Puerto Rican administration for the totally inadequate response to this disaster.

The conditions back home aren’t adequate still.

Uncle Sam, there’s Puerto Rican blood on your hands. 

The mighty, imperialistic US of A doesn’t care about it’s colony.

The Puerto Rican government is as corrupt as the American one.

4,645 Puerto Ricans, (so far), paid the ultimate price!

Marlette received a priceless editorial cartoon education while living with his uncle and Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Doug Marlette in Hillsborough, N.C.

With this in mind, Andy works daily to learn and uphold the disciplines and values passed on to him by his late uncle. Andy’s editorial cartoons have become both hated and adored by daily readers.

TRAGEDY STRIKES PUERTO RICO’S NATIONAL GUARD

PORT WENTWORTH, GEORGIA

Surveillance video captured a 1950’s-era military cargo plane plunging to the ground. The C-130 aircraft exploded into flames on a busy Georgia highway Wednesday, May 2, killing all nine crew members aboard.

The Puerto Rico National Guard plane took off from Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport shortly before 11:30 a.m. and was headed for retirement.

Surveillance video from a nearby business captured what happened next, CBS News correspondent Mark Strassmann reports. The plane banked left before nose-diving and spiraling into the ground. Seconds later, a fireball and black smoke went shooting into the sky.

The plane crashed into the median of the highway, narrowly avoiding traffic, warehouses and a nearby gas station.

The pilot was identified as Maj. José Rafael Román, who hails from the coastal town of Manatí along Puerto Rico’s north coast. The mayor of that town, José Sánchez, told The Associated Press that Román had two young boys and his wife is five months pregnant with a girl.

“The town is in mourning,” Sanchez said.

“My condolences to all Puerto Rican families.”

On Thursday, the Puerto Rico National Guard identified the other crew members as 1st Lt. David Albandoz, Master Sgt. Jean Audriffred, Master Sgt. Mario Brana, Master Sgt. Eric Circuns, Master Sgt. Víctor Colón, Senior Airman Roberto Espada, Senior Master Sgt. Jan Paravisini and Maj. Carlos Pérez Serra.

Puerto Ricans Strike on May Day

~WILL GATHER AGAIN THIS YEAR~

The people of Puerto Rico are beyond being tired!

They are organizing to express their feelings toward the overall status of the Island as well as the way the after effects of Hurricane María have been dealt with.

There are some towns in the Island that still do not have restored electric power.

The 2018 hurricane season is around the corner.

No other option but strike! Take to the streets!

Anger spreads across Puerto Rico over lack of basic services

Protests will block roads in Puerto Rico’s capital as May Day demonstrators angered by a long economic crisis march against looming austerity measures and demand an audit to identify those responsible for running up $70 billion in public debt.

Puerto Rico is struggling to emerge from a recession caused in part by previous administrations that for decades borrowed billions of dollars to cover budget deficits.

In June 2015 the island’s then-governor announced that the debt was unpayable, and the government has since racked up multimillion-dollar defaults on government-issued bonds that were popular because they were triple tax-exempt.

Puerto Rico’s Senate has ordered government agencies to explain why tens of thousands of people in rural areas remain without power or appropriate shelter as anger grows about the lack of basic services more than seven months after hurricanes Irma and María.

The agencies have been given five days to present a plan on how and when they will address the needs of rural towns, an order that came as police in a small mountain town blocked power crews from leaving Tuesday. Joining the protest was the mayor and dozens of people who noted that nearly 40% of Las Piedras’ inhabitants were still without electricity service as crews prepared to leave for another town on company orders.

“This is unfair,” 62-year-old town resident Rafael Jimenez said by phone.

“I don’t have a problem with other towns getting power because it’s a national necessity, but we need it, too.”

The standoff caught the attention of top Puerto Rico government officials and ended several hours later after the power company promised it would keep crews in Las Piedras until service is fully restored.

Justo Gonzalez, the company’ executive sub director, said in a statement that he is committed to restoring power to everyone but that blocking crews would only delay those efforts.

TIME DOESN’T STOP FOR ANYTHING OR ANYONE

LIFE GOES ON

Hurricane María battered the American possession/colony of Puerto Rico on September 20, 2017.

Life in my country has forever been changed.

Even though this is not top news anymore, the 3 million + American citizens living there are hurting, suffering and dealing with their lives the best way they can.

~THE LADY IN READ WHO APPEARS IN THE VIDEO~

Jennifer González-Colón is the resident commissioner from Puerto Rico and is a Republican. She has served since Jan 3, 2017. González-Colón is next up for reelection in 2020.

Because Puerto Rico is a territory/colony of the United States, and not a state, its representative in the House of Representatives is a delegate, called the resident commissioner, with limited voting privileges – González-Colón can vote in committee but not on the House floor, including not on the final passage of bills. Delegates have a marginalized role in Congress and their constituents are not represented in Congress in the same manner as most citizens.

I don’t agree with her politics and I personally do not like her. 

(How can a woman, from an American colony, be a Republican, escapes my mind’s grasp!)

A little help would go a long way.

This short video explains a lot.
