    Estimates of between $40-$80B taxpayer dollars just to repair the island's infrastructure are outrageous. Why do it? Their leaders inept and corrupt borrowing already had American taxpayers $73B in debt before the hurricanes. And who's to say they don't get hit by another hurricane or two next year? The place is destroyed...why throw good money after bad at 3,662,102 people who can't run their own affairs? [​IMG]

    I agree! Here is another article on how poorly PR has managed it's affairs and where the hell is their national guard troops?


    Nine Days After Maria and How Many Members of the Puerto Rico National Guard are on Duty?



    Someone needs to ask why, with a Cat 5 hurricane bearing down on the island, the National Guard was not activated before the storm hit. Someone needs to ask why soldiers from the PRNG are being allowed, according to the story, to stay home and care to their families instead of performing their duty. Someone needs to ask why some 5,000 active duty soldiers have been sent to Puerto Rico while 5,000 members of the Puerto Rico National Guard have not reported for duty.

    Ummm...odd isn't it that the OP's author didn't whine about the money, commodities and teams of first responders sent to Texas and Florida. He also didn't post a thread pissing and moaning about the taxpayer money which has been used by the Trump Administration for boondoggles.

    Gee, Build a house on a cliff above the ocean then bitch about a storm wiping you out. Its like people who move next to an airport then start complaining about the noise.

    Agree that PR should be and will be bull-dozed.

    Then, we rebuild.

    If we can "nation build" other countries, we can certainly rebuild part of our own.

    The mayor of San Juan cannot be bothered to work with FEMA. She is busy ordering tee shirts and giving interviews! She should be working with FEMA and ordering her national guard into action. She needs truck drivers. I bet the majority can drive trucks and clear roads!
