    They were showing us the pictures. And thousands of those are refrigerated because of perishables and medicine with each one using it's own generator. It takes 4,000 gallons of fuel a day to run them all.

    Talk about poor organization. They have no way to get the supplies to the people. And they say more ships won't do any good because of the blockage.

    This is probably the most poorly organized "rescue" mission in history. It's like the Keystone Cops are running things. If Hillary or Obama were president, the Air Force, the Army and the National Guard would have every helicopter there to move supplies, transport road crews and airlift people to safety.

    The disaster here is going to be enormous. Many more dying than the number that died because of the storm itself. Just like after Katrina, when the GOP held the presidency and both houses. America just doesn't seem to learn or even want to learn.

    Blah blah blah...you can't grasp how difficult it is to get this done or the damage that PR suffered.

    It's just more political fodder for your stupid ass

    Seems to me that the liberal governor is the one to blame. Isnt he in charge of that island? Yes he is. Now it will be those who work for President who will come in and organize the situation as a business leader should.

    If Hillary would be president , she would be asking for donations for her(I just threw up) Charity, and while stealing most of that money, then give a pittance to those in need. Haiti anyone?

    /----/ Rush is right again.
    They’re (The Left) attempting to establish a narrative that Trump doesn’t care about Puerto Rico or the people in Puerto Rico, and they’re trying to recreate what they created during Hurricane Katrina and George W. Bush. Again, that’s all they’ve got is to go back to their greatest hits and try to play ’em again. Instead of New Orleans Katrina, this is hurricane whatever it was and Puerto Rico. And here’s a media montage where they Drive-Bys openly express their hope.
    Hopeful Drive-By Mantra: “Trump’s Katrina”

    If you are that concerned Deanie boy.

    Why don't you use some of your vacation days and take off work to go there and help.

    I'm sure there are numerous relief agencies willing to put volunteers like you to work unloading the ships and delivering supplies. .... :cool:

    I've been hearing last night and this a.m. that they can't find drivers to move the stuff where it needs to go. Drivers just aren't showing up. Probably because they haven't got gas to get there or they haven't got a phone to find out when to show up or they haven't eaten or showered in days and they're too fucking miserable to bother. Or they're not leaving their homes unprotected from looters.
    I hear the military IS coming in. They'll get things rolling, I hope.

    Charity Navigator - Rating for The Clinton Foundation

    Where Does Clinton Foundation Money Go? - FactCheck.org

    The Clinton Foundation was probably the most scrutinized foundation in world history with the GOP Senate investigators, the House investigators, the FBI and even the CIA looked at their contacts including every media organization in the world. All looking for something. And all they could find were conspiracies.

    However, the Trump Foundation is still under criminal investigation. You do know that, right? Tell me you know that.

    Clinton pressed Trump to deploy hospital ship Comfort to Puerto Rico. Now it’s preparing to go.

    She's been active on issues for 9/11 workers

    Oops!
