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.

Why Is Puerto Rico In So Much Debt? …. Explained In Less Than A Minute …. “!!

~~April 10, 2016~~ 

IN A NUT SHELL 

If you don’t know that Puerto Rico is in a huge bind, you have been living under a rock or have been totally consumed by the sideshow of the current American politics and the caucuses/primaries.

Since 2006, Puerto Rico has faced an uphill battle in paying off its debt.

Since then it’s ballooned to $72 billion.

But why does it have so much debt in the first place?

Puerto Rico’s debt crisis keeps getting uglier

The island has even less money than everyone thought, according to the latest figures out Monday, and it’s having to resort to “extraordinary measures” to pay its bills.

The cash crunch is so bad that Puerto Rico’s prison system is no longer paying the vendor that supplies food for inmates, and some special education instructors have stopped getting paid, according to a senior government official. The island is also delaying people’s tax refunds.

Over the next decade, Puerto Rico must close a nearly $24 billion funding hole, worse than previously projected in September. That’s after raising taxes and severely cutting expenses.

The island’s problems center on how to deal with just over $70 billion in total debt.

I used the video presented below in another post today. However, as I listened and watched, I consider this to be such a powerful video that I believe it deserves a post of its own. If the event that any reader or visitor misses the previous post, this post will lead them to this educational and historical video about my country: Puerto Rico.

BlackBor

Puerto Rico, officially the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Spanish: Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico, literally the Free Associated State of Puerto Rico), is a United States territory located in the northeastern Caribbean, east of the Dominican Republic, and west of both the United States Virgin Islands and the British Virgin Islands.

Puerto Rico is an archipelago that includes the main island of Puerto Rico and a number of smaller islands, the largest of which are Vieques, Culebra, and Mona. The main island of Puerto Rico is, by land area, the smallest of the Greater Antilles.

With around 3.5 million people, it ranks third in population among that group of four islands, which include Cuba, Hispaniola and Jamaica. The capital and largest city is San Juan. Due to its location, Puerto Rico has a tropical climate with warm weather year-round and does not observe daylight saving time. Its official languages are Spanish, which is prevalent, and English.

~~America’s Backyard: Puerto Rico~~

~~Published on Oct 6, 2014~~

In 1904, President Theodore Roosevelt declared that the United States had to intervene in the internal affairs of Latin American. In his own words: “if any South American country misbehaves it should be spanked.”All US presidents that succeeded him have, in lesser or greater measure, continued to exercise their perceived right over a region often known as “America’s Backyard”.

After more than 400 years of Spanish colonial domination, in 1897 Puerto Rico was given the right to govern over its affairs. Only five months later, Spain and the US went to war over the last Spanish colonies in the region. American Forces occupied Puerto Rico.
The Treaty of Paris clearly established that all Puerto Rican affairs were to be decided by the United States Congress.

President Theodore Roosevelt recommended that Puerto Ricans become U.S. citizens.
Despite the overwhelming opposition from the Puerto Rican legislators, in March 1917 the US Congress decided that all Puerto Ricans were now US citizens; but only to be ruled and not be given the rights. Many Puerto Ricans were forced to fight in the America’s wars and many died.

Up to this day not much has changed, as that Treaty of Paris is still valid.

JUST CONTINUE MAKING FOOLS OF YOURSELVES

I read a post in my Facebook feed a few days ago. Something about a Powerball winner in Puerto Rico. This is something that I don’t really pay attention to. Lucky those who win. I don’t even play and don’t care too. 

However, this graph came along yesterday and the Puerto Rican in me, once again, was bothered, quite bothered. However, it once again showed me that there is a sector in the American public who haS no clue about geography, social studies, politics or history. Those that dare spew foolish posts in the social media are only confirming the fact that some Americans haven’t left their neighborhood even past their street corner. I feel sorry for those Americans. 

Well, if some don’t know anything about their own country, how can anyone expect them to know anything about a little island in the Caribbean which has been a possession of the USA since the Spanish-American war in 1898. 

I know, that’s asking too much!!

~~ANGRY WHITE PEOPLE SPEWING~~

Do we detect a tint of jealousy?

A Winning Powerball Ticket Came From Puerto Rico @PuertoRicoSerio @latinorebels @jayfonsecapr @pollomaldonado

Yes, we pay taxes, are Citizens since 1917, and we fight in the battle field and play the lotto too, so what?!

USA HISTORY 1:1 Oooops

Puerto Rico Powerball Win Draws Offensive Tweets
News that one of the three Powerball winning tickets was bought in Puerto Rico elicited offensive tweets questioning why island residents – who are born U.S. citizens since Puerto Rico is a U.S. commonwealth – had the opportunity to buy tickets.

It’s completely outrageous someone from Puerto Rico won the powerball, thought this was America!

Colin Ryan (@CTJR7) February 12, 2015
As Latino Rebels first pointed out, the news brought out Twitter responses such as “I thought this was America!” and others with language too offensive to print, but including “How is the place that doesn’t even pay taxes eligible for powerball? “

So we all spent money to buy powerball tickets in America and someone in Puerto Rico won it …. what is wrong with that picture?

R Taff (@rtaffofficial) February 12, 2015
Puerto Ricans pay federal taxes including Social Security, payroll, import/export taxes and Medicare. While most Puerto Ricans who live year-round in the island do not have to pay federal personal income taxes, those with income sources from the U.S. as well as those working for the U.S. government or the military do pay them.

~One of many comments~

Puerto Rico in an American gold mine. The US controls Puerto Rican trade and commerce. The US government makes 74 billion dollars from Puerto Rican production and sends back 3 billion dollars a year. Really?!

Who’s the welfare state? But the mainstream media does not report the actual facts.
