  1. I can’t believe what I’m seeing. I just want to scream.

    Over 3.4 million people living in Puerto Rico, American citizens. And it’s come to this.

    I keep thinking how I used to say that we would look back on President Obama’s two terms as an oasis in a desert. But I didn’t want to be right, I really wanted to be wrong. And now it’s worse than I could possibly have imagined. When you take too many steps backwards, sooner or later you just simply have changed direction. You are headed back the other way.

    There’s a lot to be concerned about.

  3. A fierce fighter for her people as they try to survive from a devastating hurricane & having to endure the incompetence of a squatter in White House.

  4. I absolutely despise him with everything in me….

    GENOCIDE. Very simple to see and understand. GENOCIDE OF BROWN AND BLACK PEOPLE WHO ARE AMERICANS. Malcolm and Farrahkan were right…we need our own communities that are self-sufficient. How many in this thread grow their own organic food, grow and know how to use herbs for healing everything, have food and water stored for 6 months to one year, have emergency supplies in the home, have gas stored, have a generator, have a gun, are ready for survival? Yet, how many have more than one vehicle, have clothing for every impressive occasions, dine out often, buy gold and expensive jewelry, live to impress others? Transfer that money to survival supplies and you will be ready.

    I am HORRIFIED by the botched job for PR and the despicable response by dolt45 to the Mayor of San Juan. Yet, I am not surprised. I knew he would be the absolute worst president and also knew what racism is in America and the outcome for people of color. We have always been on our own. We cannot rely on the work of a tiny % who have and continue to fight for our civil rights. It is up to each of us to do our part. If you are doing well and made it on your own, all the more reason to do your part if for no other reason that it will hit you one day when you least expect it.

    On survival, Oregano Oil is a natural antibiotic, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic and more that should be in everyone’s home. I keep one in the car and travel with it. If I am out of town, I take all 4 bottles (1 oz each) with me in case I cannot make it back home. This is a 2 year supply for one. It’s cheap and does the job better than prescribed antibiotics that are chemicals and cannot cure colds and flus. Oregano Oil does. Look it up. Strongest is at, Veria brand from Greece. I would love to get the word out to the people in PR and everywhere about this miracle herbal oil. However, alternative doctors are being murdered every day for telling people how to heal themselves. This is real. This is what we are up against.

    Trump’s tweets this AM on Puerto Rico:

    Donald J. Trump‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump 33m33 minutes ago
    The Fake News Networks are working overtime in Puerto Rico doing their best to take the spirit away from our soldiers and first R’s. Shame!

    Donald J. Trump‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump 52m52 minutes ago
    Fake News CNN and NBC are going out of their way to disparage our great First Responders as a way to “get Trump.” Not fair to FR or effort!

    Donald J. Trump‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump 1h1 hour ago
    The military and first responders, despite no electric, roads, phones etc., have done an amazing job. Puerto Rico was totally destroyed.

    …want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort. 10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job.

    Donald J. Trump‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump 1h1 hour ago
    …Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help. They….

    The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump.

    Very informative article:

    “What every American needs to know about Puerto Rico’s hurricane disaster
    9 essential things to know about Puerto Rico’s humanitarian crisis”

    1) 3.4 million US citizens live in Puerto Rico, and they are entitled to the same government response as any state. But half of Americans don’t even know that.×0/filters:no_upscale()/×0/filters:no_upscale()/

    I can’t get past the pure-D RACISM in the response to Puerto Rico 😠😠

  9. yahtzeebutterfly says:

    “Puerto Rico low on food and water after hurricane”

  10. The situation in Puerto Rico is dire, the Mayor of San Juan begging for help and that buffoon is going around patting himself on the back.

  11. yahtzeebutterfly says:

    “Delivering aid to Puerto Rico a challenge for volunteers”

    Volunteers are facing expensive shipping costs and long delivery times due to limited access to the island.

    More than a week after Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, millions of people in the US territory are still in the dark and food is becoming scarce.
    Non-perishable items and other donations sit at Puerto Rico’s main port of San Juan and have yet to be delivered — or are held up at ports in the US mainland. And only a handful of flights are traveling to the island.

    Students at a New York high school are filling up their school’s auditorium with water, boxes of cereal and canned foods but can’t find a way to send them to the island.
    Sending donations to Puerto Rico could cost the Comsewogue High School in Long Island between $17,000 and $25,000, school officials told CNN affiliate WABC reported.

  12. yahtzeebutterfly says:

    This is so upsetting.

    The U.S. military has the ability to get food to the towns of Puerto Rico at this time when the only 20% of Puerto Rico’s truckers have been able to unload the cargo containers in the harbor.

    Send cargo planes in with food and water and drop the food and supplies with parachutes attached as has been done before in other countries. Hurry!

  13. rikyrah says:

    AND Dolt45 is going around congratulating themselves!

    DA PHUQ?
