The fact that she’s been elected mayor of PR’s largest city should tell you something about the “citizens” of PR. The one time I was there for a business conference, was an eye opener. These people hate America and “white Americans” with a passion. San Juan was not a clean place why I was there, and it was more than twenty years ago. At this juncture, I don’t know what we should do about PR. I guess the best answer is to “fix it up and sell it!” But the US Taxpayer should not be footing the bill. As Trump has suggested, let Wall St. “eat” the bonded indebtedness they’ve bought for openers. These people are just like their “black cousins” up in NOLA in that they expect to be able to sit on their collective a$$es and demand that those of us who work for a living, fix up their broken $hit hole of an island. May be we should call on Congressman Hank Johnson (of Guam “fame”) for a prediction on PR “capsizing.” If it flipped over and sank, that would be the best outcome.
I was there for a year (1993). San Juan had dumpy areas. They crammed people into small areas. I worked at Roosevelt Roads Naval station which was really nice. The areas around it were too. We had workers commuting daily by ferry from Vieques island. Then came JJ and gang who managed to run the Navy off the portion of Vieques that was used as a practice bombing range. Since the navy did not have the range on Vieques there was no need for the Roosevelt Roads base either so they shut it down.
Had the base been kept open, support would be coming a lot faster now since they had an airfield and port facilities.
I lived off base and the infrastructure was sorry. Regular power and water losses. Everyone kept a supply of drinking water on hand. We had to go to the pool to get water to flush toilets. The government was corrupt then so no telling what it is now.
