THE AWFUL AFTERMATH

(I FOUND THE VIDEO)

~AMERICAN CITIZENS IN CRISIS~

Last Sunday, November 5, CBS 60 Minutes reported on the aftermath of Hurricane María. I watched it and my heart continued to sink.

I was looking for the video to share it with you. I found it through Facebook.

Today is the 53rd day after the hurricane hit. 

Progress has been slow and the spotlight of the main stream media has moved on to other events.

Let the video speak for itself!

(I don’t agree with all the provided in the video. The visual are all true).

Puerto Ricans in the island have endured the longest blackout in American history following a direct hit from Hurricane Maria. Due to a multitude of factors, some say the lights won’t be coming back on anytime soon.

It’s safe to say that of all the places in the country, the one that is suffering the most right now is the hurricane-ravaged island of Puerto Rico.

Most people probably don’t think of it as being part of the United States, but the people who live in Puerto Rico certainly do. It’s been a territory since 1898, and its 3.4 million people are U.S. citizens.

For the past 53 days, most of them have been without power, the longest blackout in American history.

FEMA says it has distributed more food and water there than any disaster its ever been involved in. Damages could reach $90 billion and Puerto Rico is already bankrupt. There has been some finger pointing about the speed and effectiveness of the relief and recovery effort, but the misery there has much more to do with nature.

When Hurricane María arrived on the morning of September 20th, it was largely unheralded and never projected to hit the continental United States, which was already suffering hurricane fatigue. But the storm tore into Puerto Rico with sustained winds of 155 miles an hour and then began a slow 12-hour crawl across the countryside, with the center of the storm enveloping the entire island.

“I think the majority of people will hope to have their power up in — in January, maybe February.

I would predict there’s some people on that last mile that are gonna be close to spring or summer before they get those very, very last houses.”

Drumpf’s Puerto Rico Relief Video …. “🇵🇷 Here’s What You Don’t See 🇵🇷 …. Who’s Got FAKE NEWS? …. “!!

DRUMPF’S PUERTO RICO’S RELIEF VIDEO

FAKE NEWS

I saw the Puerto Rico Relief video on Twitter.

The gall … yet, I wasn’t surprised.  This sorry excuse of a sub-human, so called president will say anything and do anything.

There’s no redeeming value in the empty shell of a ‘man’. He’s empty and incapable of compassion, empathy and honor.

You can mess with the USA but you don’t mess with my country, Puerto Rico. 

I will call you on it every time I see how you lie and how you have treated the 3.4+ millions of American citizens who live in ‘your colony’ just because they are ‘brown people’.

I don’t have to be a genius to see it.

My intelligence quotient is much higher than yours!!

MONICA PUIG

HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IN PUERTO RICO

‘Help Puerto Rico,’ it’s ‘in crisis now’

Mónica Puig is closing in on her new goal of raising $100,000 to assist Puerto Rico after Hurricane María battered the island, insisting that the US territory needs all the help it can get – and immediately.

Puig chose her words carefully when asked if the US’s response has been fast enough but the world No. 77 said:

“The only thing I can say is that we need help and we need it now.

I don’t want to see suffering in Puerto Rico.
“We need all the help we can get from wherever we can get it. I just don’t want to see lives lost due to this crisis. It means a lot, anyone who is willing to help.
“We just need their help as quickly as possible.”

The tennis ace – who became Puerto Rico’s first ever Olympic gold medalist at last year’s Rio Games – says she has been in touch with pop superstar and fellow Puerto Rican Luis Fonsi to see what else can be done to help a week after María battered the island with torrential rains and 155-mile-per-hour winds.

IT LOOKS LIKE THEY NUKED US

Ricky is a proud Puerto Rican

He has always been known for his love of the Island.

After the damaging effects and aftermath of Hurricane María, he has embarked on a mission to help the people of his Island.

He’s gone back to Puerto Rico and distributed tons of bare necessities,

He’s going back this Sunday, October 8, with 120 tons of supplies to deliver.

Every little bit helps!

I’m very proud to be a fellow countrywoman to this wonderful human being!

‘It Looks Like They Nuked Us’

Ricky Martin returned to Ellen Friday to discuss his recent trip to Puerto Rico, where the singer distributed basic necessities to those affected by Hurricane Maria.

“I don’t wanna be pessimistic, I just want to be realistic: The images don’t do justice to what really happened in Puerto Rico.

It looks like they nuked us,” Martin said. “Regardless of what people say, right now Puerto Rico is still struggling, and I don’t see light at the tunnel.”

Martin added that he was returning to the island on Sunday with a FedEx plane filled with basic necessities for those still recovering from Hurricane Maria. Martin also thanked Ellen viewers for assisting in his YouCaring relief efforts, which saw its donations increase from $200,000 to $1.8 million following his last appearance on the show.

Dear friends,

Puerto Rico has been devastated by Hurricane Maria, and the island desperately need us. This is a humanitarian crisis affecting 3.5 million people. The power grid is destroyed, food and water are in short supply and we all need to work together now. For this reason, I created this page to collect funds and my donation of $100,000 is already in, as well as the generous donations from the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation and many others.

The Ricky Martin Foundation team on the ground is already working with the local government, local volunteers.

Keith Olbermann, #131 …. “🇵🇷 The Roots of Drumpf’s Prejudice 🇵🇷 …. How Deep they Run …. “!!

ROOTS OF PREJUCIDE

DRUMPF HATES PUERTO RICANS BECAUSE THEY TOOK OVER NEW YORK

Many of you know that Puerto Rico is my country.

I was born and raised there. I didn’t move to the U.S. of A. until 1999.

I left the Island because I managed to transfer to Jacksonville to continue to work with the federal government.

Both my Mom and Dad met in New York City and married there in the early 1930’s.

When I told my Dad about my transfer to Florida, he was happy for me and concerned, at the same time. He told me that prejudice was rampart and everywhere. I didn’t get his concern. Why should I be worried? I’m an American citizen.

Puerto Rico is part of the United States. 

After watching this video, my Dad’s concerns came back to me. Here is part of the explanation. I assume that while in New York City, during the 1930’s, he was a recipient of it. I recall that Puerto Ricans were known as ‘spics‘ … a derogatory name stemming from the fact that Boricuas pronounced ‘speak’ as ‘spic’.

“I don’t ‘spic’ English!”

That was it.

I feel this is important information about what is happening in the Republican Administration lead by Drumpf and what we need to be aware of.
Keith Olbermann series called “The Resistance” continues.
He has posted installment #131.
The video speaks for itself.
If this resonates with you, good.
If it doesn’t, just scroll away to the next blog.
Thank you!

WE WILL NEVER FORGET

PUERTO RICANS HAVE A GOOD MEMORY

I’m not sure what is more hurtful, disrespectful, demeaning, or racist

BLine

1. Ignoring the devastation in PR for six days while Tweeting about NFL players.
2. Responding to the hurricane by reminding Puerto Rico that the debt needs to be paid no matter what.
3. Waiving temporarily a law (Jones Act) that limits trade in PR and results in excessive costs for Puerto Ricans only for 10 days.
4. Claiming that Puerto Ricans want everything done for them.
5. Playing golf while insulting the leadership of Puerto Rico.
6. Delaying a request for aid until possibly mid-October.
7. Being condescending by telling Puerto Ricans that a member of his team, “works on something called a budget.”
8. Claiming Katrina as a “real tragedy” thus implying that PR’s condition isn’t.
9. Blaming Puerto Ricans for throwing “their” budget off for the money used in relief efforts.
10. Worrying Puerto Ricans with the burden that the relief aid will have to be repaid.
11. Boasting shamelessly about a “very good” response that has been deemed by his own military personnel as slow and insufficient.
12. Throwing paper towels at people in need as if he were throwing t-shirts at a concert.

BLineimg_2925-2BLine

I know that my fellow Puerto Ricans and I are outraged, but this should be a feeling shared not only by every American citizen but by every human that has an ounce of human compassion.

This goes beyond political affiliations.

This is at the core of being a decent human being.

BLine

There’s only a few things that are certain.
1. Puerto Rico will recover.
2. Many do care about PR.
3. Puerto Ricans have grit.
4. The world is watching.
5. We won’t forget.

From a dear friend Ronnie G.
