    These are images of Puerto Rico around the 1930's

    And this is modern Puerto Rico. Except for the tourist sections. All we need to do is give them a bucket of nails and a few pieces of plywood or cardboard, and then everything will be back to normal.

    They applied for statehood.

    PR and the other territories can vote to become a state in the US but none of them ever vote for statehood.

    Florida's a nice place, and we shoulda given Texas back after we took all the oil. (-:

    Seriously I never understood why PR didn't become a tourist destination after Cuba went commie. Nevada? Seriously, Nevada. We used that place for nuclear and biological weapon tests.

    Apparently they did many times, but their votes never succeeded. I don't know why.

    On 2nd thought, since they are all US citizens, the best for Puerto Rico would be if they all deport themselves to like Florida, then declare the island a wild life sanctuary, and take in huge profits on exclusive hunting permits.

    They can market it as the dinosaur island waiting to happen, like the Jurassic park. They look like that already anyways. :)

    No way TH! It's already being speculated that if the PR's start to run to Florida they'll turn Florida blue and wreck it.

    This may be exactly what the powers that control Trump / Hillary / Obama want. By the way, every state will be blue in like 10 years, because 90 % of people will only care about who will cancel how much of their student debts.

    When Republicans say bulldoze Puerto Rico, I’m pretty sure they mean along with the people.

    Look how many died in Puerto Rico and Trump called that a really good job, a really good job.

    Next he’ll be saying he saw Republicans celebrating when it was announced 3000 Americans died in Puerto Rico.

    Texas and Florida didn't request billions in hurricane aid? Why throw money at people who can't manage their own affairs?

    I’m watching Peggy Noonan right now famous conservative Republican.

    She saying that Donald Trump isn’t showing empathy or sympathy or understanding for what happened to these people in Puerto Rico.

    And all I could think was hey These are Republicans. Republicans don’t show empathy or sympathy or anything like that. That’s all normal human emotions that have just bypassed the Republican Party.

    These are people that want to take away benefits that keep the elderly out of poverty.

    These are people that want to take away healthcare from children.

    These are people who don’t believe in school lunch for children that don’t get enough to eat at home.

    We’re talking Republicans. Why would they have any empathy at all for the Puerto Rican people when the guy they elected president is an out right racist?
    When Trump said some Mexicans don’t rape he was including all Hispanics.
    When Trump said a Mexican can’t be a good judge he was referring to all hispanics.
