    Pack-up your irreplaceable belongs and catch a direct flight to Vegas. This weekend we have NASCAR, Mr. Olympia (horny women), and real boxing. Along with legal marijuana, 24hr booze, and legal prostitution! Also, pool parties with naked women!

    PARTY-ON!

    Reports of Death in Puerto Rico are Wildly Exaggerated

    How can we reconcile 654 excess registry deaths with MPR Study estimates of 4,645 through year-end?

    [​IMG]
    For Official Deaths, Puerto Rico Institute of Statistics via Latino USA; for MPR excess deaths, Mortality in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria, with Princeton Policy monthly interpolations to MPR year-end total.

    This loss was largely of Puerto Rico’s own doing. The island’s power system is state-owned, and state-owned utilities face political pressures to keep electricity prices low, so low in fact, that they fail to cover needed capital maintenance. Puerto Rico held its base rate — the part of the electric bill meant to cover operating costs and capital maintenance — unchanged from 1989 to January 2017—nearly thirty years! Over time, neglected infrastructure becomes vulnerable to unplanned outages. When incidents occur – as during Hurricane Maria – power generation revenues are inadequate to pay for capital repairs. That’s why the utility signed a suspect and ultimately stillborn contract with the tiny firm of Whitefish to repair the island’s infrastructure. That is all the money and credit the utility could muster.

    To blame the Trump administration for 4,645 excess deaths is flat out wrong. Unless the MPR Study authors can actually locate the bodies, 4,000 of those deaths never occurred. Those that did were largely attributable to the protracted loss of power on the island, unavoidable in part, but made all the worse by the politicized state ownership of Puerto Rico’s power company.

    Puerto Rico Hurricane Maria (DR-4339) | FEMA.gov

    Individual Assistance Applications
    Approved: 462,134

    Total Individual & Households Program
    Dollars Approved: $1,216,067,265.15

    Total Public Assistance Grants
    Dollars Obligated: $3,663,487,204.19

    FEMA Awards $55 Million for PREPA to Reimburse Florida Power and Light Company | FEMA.gov

    Updates and Articles, Blogs, and News Releases | FEMA.gov

    Shows efforts over time..........I would note that 462,134 individual assistance approved on an Island of 3.3 million people is a high percentage......

    Rebuilding the entire electrical grid of the 3.3 million people that was virtually destroyed is not a simple task..........They had spent no money on the grid for decades...........it was in disrepair before the storm hit.................and was destroyed...
