    Yeah, we do hate. We hate stupidity. When I read stupidity being spewed by morons, I tend to get annoyed by it. We should be smarter than this, and clearly some are not.

    Puerto Rico has a population of about 3 1/2 million. They are all Americans so they can come here with no problems. And, given the state of that island, I bet that we will see about a million and a half coming here, should give real heartburn to these bigoted bastards.

    Why would it give anyone heart burn? What gives me heart burn, is when some mindless idiot says that an island that is not a State in the "United States" is a part of the US. It isn't. That's why we're called the United STATES... not United 'Every random place that claims to be part of the US'.

    Stupidity gives me heart burn, not legal migration. And right now, some of these left-wing posts are worth an entire bottle of Alka Seltzer.

    Maybe those of you who think that Puerto Rico is a separate country should actually use your computers to find out about that place.

    It is a US territory, and it's citizens are US citizens.

    Incidentally, more people per capita from Puerto Rico join the military than any other state.

    Everyone knows that it is a US territory. But it is not a US state. Or we would call it..... a state. It would be the 'state of Puerto Rico'.

    And the people of PR are US citizens who have been through a disaster. Doesn't the US government have an obligation to US citizens?

    Or, is it only if they are a US citizen in a US state?

    Oh, we're helping Peurto Rico, although we really shouldn't be putting ourselves out.

    The people of Puerto Rico pay no income taxes to the US. They contribute nothing toward for federal aid to anyone else for any other hurricane, disaster, or highway project. Also, the federal government spends more money on Puerto Rico than another other state, net contributions. The only welfare case more costly to the US, on the planet, than Puerto Rico is Israel.

    We should cut Puerto Rico loose, or make them part of Florida. Let them vote on it. But, the US is being raped by those hispanics.

    Texas got 50 inches of rain. PR did not.

    Of course you can pre-positiion supplies on an island. Know what a warehouse is? PR should have packed some full of jugs of water and non-perishable food.

    And the only hatred here is your hatred of the american taxpayer whom you insist should pay for PR's problems.
