    When a disaster hits the first responding is done by the states as happened with texas and florida after monster hurricanes hit them. They had a PLAN and people ready to handle the catastrophe. But puerto rico and maria are like louisiana and katrina 12 years ago. No plan and now the media is blaming trump like they blamed bush in 2005.

    Not a peep bout Obama when Joplin MO was destroyed or when Louisiana flooded badly. He did good! Trump is bad, very bad human.

    I was there - on the Saturday before as well as the day following.

    Feds were there, military and FEMA. We SAW them.

    Reason I was there was a very good friend as well as my oral surgeon had disappeared and his family was a wreck. The quake was on a Sunday and he had decided to go work in his office. No one knew here was there and he dug out by himself.

    Joplin was not "destroyed".

    Post links to back up your lies. I'll check back later to read them.

    Human garbage OP - in the case of an emergency like this, yes, of course they are.

    The feds were there???? HAHAHA. But what did they do to help out.?

    First responding is handled locally, The feds come around later to make "loans" ( that are never paid back) to help rebuild.

    Puerto Rico and New Orleans have one thing in common, the culture of government dependence. Goes a long way toward explaining the situation that they're in right now.
    Twelve year old waiting in the pick up line with her 18 year old boyfriend to pick up her birth control prescription "Wonder if I can pay for my 'peetures' with this welfare card?"
    These are not the same people that tore a nation, a society, a civilization from a wild foreboding wilderness, who fought the Revolutionary war, The War of 1812, The Civil War, WWI and WWII, these are people primed to surrender to Buraq Hussein Obama's Islamic masters, whom Obama has ready and waiting.

    the first responders are the city and county then the state, if needed, then the feds if asked by the state....

    You at a pea brain.

    1. Puerto Rico is a island. That means there is no way to get out unlike Texas and Florida.
    2. The hurricane that hit Puerto Rico was a Cat 4 hurricane. Florida and Texas did not get hit nearly as hard as Puerto Rico. The electric grid was completely destroyed. Communications on the island were all but destroyed.
    3. The federal government has assets that can be useful in a disaster of this magnitude.

    When you have devastation of this size the federal government should be the first responder. Do you object because Puerto Ricans are not white?

    As i explained in another thread, PR is exaggerating the damage to get a huge bailout for all the debt they've piled up over the years.. The media goes along with the lie because then they can say "look at all this devastation and trump does nothing.". Our super-corrupt press hates trump.

    Puerto Rico is practically an independent country. E.g. they don't pay taxes to the federal government. Any aid the feds give to Texas, or anyone, Puerto Rico contributed nothing to that.

    There mess is their problem and they should be grateful for what the US does for them. They do nothing for us, except for sending us a stream of Hispanic immigrants who aren't considered immigrants.
