A Tale of Two Puerto Ricos

The future of Puerto Rico depends on more than simply mending what Maria destroyed. Bloomberg followed an ad hoc crew of volunteers into the hardest hit areas to help those still in need of urgent medical care.

I feel for the American citizens of PR. The biggest problem is that the Island has a vast percentage of Undocumented people that cannot account for. The PR government has NOT been truthful and supportive to the citizens of PR. Union leaders on the Island are demanding more money to rebuild and stabilize. The government in PR is withholding millions on millions of dollars and are only filtering a little to help build certain areas. Over 40 Billion dollars have been distributed. So why is the news media not showing the reconstructing? Restoration of power? I bet u 100% That female Mayor who has been voiceful is sitting in a well Air Conditioned home, with power all around her property. You dont have the news media covering that part though....

thank you I'm from the mountains of utuado where we the Iberian Celts consider home including the Alps and canary people we really are different breed compare to the rest of the island and yes PR can transform her self to a brilliant Star if the ancient philosophers can educate the people in all aspects of life in reality is real easy to build Puerto Rico in economy systems the answer is in front of you eyes and you don't even see it Puerto Rico can be built from the ground up so easily build a cross and you will have four sides and utuado is in the middle then build a Celt spiral start the circle around the island and you will finish in utuado perfect economic system I hope you understand my language know who I'm a ancient walking library but remember work with the understanding of natural laws no against it ok thanks again brother

First of all... America is not the US... It is the united states of America for a reason.. It belong to the Americas.. Just like Brazil, just like Mexico., just like Cuba. 2nd We have been the oldest colony in the world , citizenship was given so we could fight US wars. Whoever wrote we're the cesspool is definitely a person who needs to pick up a book, read moreor get more involved with the outside world... We have great human resources, we have an astronaut in space, Jose Acabá, great entertainers like Ricky Martin, great Boxer like Miguel Cotto and Tito Trinidad, great soldiers like the Borinqueneers which were awarded the gold congressional medal, for godsakes NASA and Microsoft continuously come to PR to hire people for a reason. We have great natural resources, though devasted, nature finds its way... Our bioluminescent bays, the only rain Forrest the US has is here in PR. Even our white house stood before the one on Pennsylvania avenue. Anyone that says PR is a cesspool us definitely someone who doesn't know our history or has even been here. People need to stick to what they know

The only thing I differ from Robert is that we were discovered In 1493. San Juan is the second Oldest city in the Americas... Thanks for caring and helping us... All the best to you all in 2018 Lv M

Why blame FEMA? Its been known for years that the PR electrical grid was a ticking time bomb. Blame those leaders who where made poor decisions so that there own pockets could be a little heavier.

Probably this is a Dominican who  are freeloaders aliens supported by Puerto Ricans They risk their lives in the sea to get to the island to get free housing, food, education,, school lunch for their kids and medical service all paid by Puerto Ricans. Then they go to  NY to be freeloaders again and steal food stamps to send food to Dominican Republic with money from tax payers a foreign country. Then full of envy and inferiority complex come to these videos to attack the people who served them when they needed like all freeloaders do, because of their inferior position. Poor leeches!

It's lamentable how FEMA has handled this tragic situation in Puerto Rico so incompetently. It begs the question: Would a U.S. president other than Donald Trump have made a difference? It's been very "sad," to use one of his favorite adjectives, except he uses the word lightly, almost mockingly. Notice how FEMA arrived empty handed as shown in this video. Many of these places are some of the most inaccessible places on the island, and after three months, there has been very little progress, if any. Notice that the man who was assisted on the mountainside was a Vietnam veteran. There are many like him all over the island. Thank you for your service, sir, and let's hope that the Trump administration will undergo a small transformation in helping our American citizens on this devastated island. So much American resources wasted overseas in military conflicts devoid of any meaning, yet our most immediate needs are neglected in the most reprehensible ways.

It is easy to blame our neighbor for the mess in our own house, but government cannot be blamed for Natural Disasters or what citizens select as values: Before any Natural Disaster happened in PR, it was plagued by puertorican narcos and drug users, having a high rate of Crimes, and some made their way to administrative positions, stealing the money of The People; Almost every family have a family member with addiction or related to Mafia activity... Everybody knows well who is the "Bichote", the one that controls the Drug Distribution in the neighborhood, but... NO body dares to critisize him, instead it is easier to Accsuse Spain, USA, or the PR Corrupt Government, but... Lets say that PR is ever Governed by Holy Angels, but.. If the People doesnt change their Values, then they will Keep The Puertorican Narcos, Addicts and Criminality, and Denying this doesnt help PR!

It all has to do with money we Puerto Ricans have been a Colony of the US Government they want to keep it that way it's all about money and evading tax law regulations and getting away with it greed this is what they want to get everyone off the island buy properties up if people don't go back and sell them to Rich people....
emslas (1 month ago)
USA does not support Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico supports the USA. The island pays billions of dollars in federal taxes annually to the mainland. They refund part of the money for the social needs of the island and keep the big chunk. Plus, according to the governor of the island Trump was calling him every day to know about the situation and sending help to the island. Help that the island has been paying year after year after year. They are doing what they are supposed to do. Return part of it when the island needs it!

Ahmed Caraballo PR was strategically important, but it has become less important since the culmination of the Cold War. The only reason to station troops in the area is to protect the Gulf of Mexico and Florida while countering Cuba. Cuba doesn't have enough support from foreign powers to be dangerous, so the USA and Cuba are slowing renewing relations. Guantanamo can also counter Cuba, as can a base in the Virgin Islands or Florida. The Virgin Islands actually have natural harbors, while the main island of Puerto Rico is only good for an airstrip. The only thing in Puerto Rico of strategic value is Vieques and maybe Culebra. Truthfully, there is little value in keeping the territory if its citizens want independence in the future. As of now, it looks like things will remain the same for the foreseeable future.
Ahmed Caraballo (2 months ago)
Jake Moyo I disagree. If PR wasn't or strategically important (which it was), the USA wouldn't have built airbases. America pulled out thanks to the ignorant populace backed up by Hollywood actors who protested the usage of part of Vieques as a bomb range.

racoonzattack (2 months ago)
Enid Sales he could have given them to the people instead of throwing them. Regardless of the paper towel issue it's safe to say that the Federal Government and the Government of Puerto Rico failed it's people in the recovery effort. A lot of puertoricans blamed our leaders for not taking Trump to the truly affected areas but it wasn't their fault as much as it was the White House who determined his schedule. So they knowingly chose to take him to an upper middle class neighborhood In Guaynabo, one of the richest municipalities on the island instead of places like Loiza which is right next to the airport.

False, the biggest amount of debt was accumulated by governor Luis Fortuño, a republican, along with his republican legislature. That's 17 BILLION dollars of debt in just 4 years. They also took almost 5 billion dollars on the Power Authority (they broke it) and didn't fix, improve or maintain the system. That is a HUGE factor in the inability of the Power Authority to fix the power fast, lack of funds because it was BANKRUPTED by Puerto Rican RepublicanS!!

There is no such thing as a isolated area. Now why does it takes time to get there,well simple..you can’t drive more than 25mph on the center of the island.
