Puerto Rico paralyzes!

Recommended Posts

Haha, yeah Mamerro is probably just making stuff up. I'm pretty sure he's never been outside of Utah.

 

My question is what is PR gonna do to compete now that Cuba is evolving towards capitalism? Also, what about the inevitible loss of tourist revenue once the US travel restrictions are lifted? Is there any national discussion on these things?

actually not at all

the governor is concentrated in his millionaire friends....

He wants to put all the government system privatized, the bad thing about that is that we will

not have the same freedoms as we used to.

That is also the Problem With EAP (Private school means a whole different curriculum, and every thing that we fought is gonna disappear).

And he is also Privatizing every school, when the constitution of PR says is a right for everyone even the ones that don't have $$$$ .

Luis G. Fortuño Wants money for himself and for his friends.

The last four years he was the Resident Commissioner in Washington dc and he spent more time making business reunions that in the capitol.....

Another thing that is bothering us is that they Fired 17,000 people but they don't want to show us the books of Public Funds, to show us why they had to fired all that people, us as citizens Have a right to know in what things the money of taxes that we pay are spent.

 

They fired 17,000 people but the ex governors want Escorts that cost 4 million dollars and guess what they are giving the escorts back cuz is the police "duty" to do it....

 

That's why we are all pissed off

and if the governor keeps with his bullshit we can go on a national strike.:D

The worst thing about the firing of 17,000 people is that it probably prevents the firing of the other 83,000 people (including those at the top) that have no business being in our bloated and sorry excuse for a government.

 

 

Mi pana.

 

Puerto Rico lleva echandose esto encima desde hace años. Desde el mas rico hasta el mas pobre esta en el tren del masquepide, el primero por avaricia y el segundo por envidia. Llevan exigiendo mas y mas y mas, mientras le faltan el respeto a su propia isla (

) y eligen payasos y bufones a navegar el barco y echarle leña a un fuego que viene quemandonos desde hace rato. Tu me perdonas brother, pero Puerto Rico se merece exactamente lo que le está cayendo encima.

 

Aqui to el mundo lo quiere todo, que le alivien hasta el alma sin pagarle un vellon a Hacienda. La gente quiere que los chavos aparezcan como magia (coño que chulería son esos fondos federales!) y se encojonan cuano no aparecen los chavos y estan demasiado cagaos y amamantaos pa hacer algo por lo suyo que no sea quejarse y echarle la culpa al otro. Puerto Rico ha tenido muchas oportunidades pa salir de la estancaera y echar pa lante por su cuenta, pero la gente sigue eligiendo la misma mierda año tras año, porque garantiza un mantén lo mas chevere que le trae una lancha nueva al riquitillo y una Hayabusa al caco.

 

A mi esa mierda de letreros señalando al gobierno que dicen "El pueblo se respeta!" me lo maman. Primero que el pueblo se respete a si mismo antes de exigirle a nadie. Puerto Rico se está viendo en un espejo ahora mismo y no quiere aceptar lo que ve. Por mas huevos que tiren no van a tapar ese reflejo.

maybe u are right.... but some times it takes a lot of time to realize that we choose the wrong people for several years..... And i don't know u but when some one is bothering u for a long time, U gonna kick is ass... We have a boiling point.

 

I hate to see all the ignorant people voting for some assholes... but they know how to brainwash people.

 

I hate to see Everyone in the Hood killing each other, but they don't dare to do anything to the people that fuck there lives every day....

 

I understand ur point but thanx to the "good education" and $$$ We are who we are, I hope this is the time that people realize whats really wrong.... Y como pueblo no podemos dejar ke nos la monten.

 

One of the biggest problems is that they get everything for themselves, and nobody dares to do shit they prefer to kill other people, to steal from there neighbors or to keep it quiet cuz the Government can kill us....the FBI will shut me up.... all that bullshit

 

The day that the government Show the people the public funds books... That day.... it will be the day....;)

Last night I pumped out a half page post about what Mamerro said but since I only can personally translate about 80% of the words and none of the anecdotal evidence I deleted and kept my mouth shut.

 

For the solo english speakers though, he pretty much said 'you made you bed now lie in it, and since you lie down with dogs don't biitch about the fleas.'

 

I don't think that Mrik's pictures really address the root of Mam's queston concerning 'what are you gonna do about it'... sure it's evidence of unrest and unhappiness but what is that really gonna change? Where are the real ideas for reasonable and palpable change?

 

I'm willing to be wrong so just let me know if I am.

(Mamski for Pres?)

A few months ago, during a protest against impending layoffs and further privatization, workforce and union leaders were asked to provide some realistic, workable options to the giant economic mess we found ourselves in that would satisfy the needs of everyone without resorting to rampant privatization and layoffs. They came up with a 10-point plan with such ridiculous feasability, that it might as well have called for Jesus to show up with bikini models and hand out Medalla to everyone, or for snow to magically fall on a sunny day in San Juan (oh wait, that actually happened once). It basically amounted to "We want everything to be awesome and to keep our jobs and get money and have it all funded by the government", but with somewhat more sophisticated wording. Of course, the government responded with a kindly "Fuck off".

 

There seems to be this general sentiment that all this magic free money actually exists, and it can fund all our wildest dreams and desires, but that politicians are funneling it all into their own accounts. This is not an entirely false assumption. Politicians in PR have shown staggering levels of corruption, and fraud is commonplace in PR politics; it is perfectly understandable to be completely fed up with this, but it is not realistic in the slightest to believe that getting rid of this problem would all of a sudden solve the issue of lack of funds. The amount of money being stolen is still paltry next to what's needed to fund 20,000 government jobs and dozens of terribly inefficient public agencies.

 

Protesting is reasonable, no question, but it's fairly clear that it won't bring jobs back or somehow force the government to reconsider their position. Even if they did, the issue would not be solved and would probably make things worse. It's a fucking shitty supreme situation... Puerto Rico has basically dug itself into a deep credit rating hole, and seems to have no option but to cut back on spending to drive the credit rating up, so that we can begin borrowing (burrowing?) again and digging more holes to get stuck in further down the road. I have yet to hear credible plans from the opposition about solving this issue without massive government cutbacks and layoffs.

 

I used to not put much weight on Cuba's transformation, thinking that PR would be able to handle itself fine with the situation. But now I'm almost hoping it hits PR hard, and that we get taught a lesson by thousands upon thousands of hungry people yearning to be able to take matters into their own hands through the newly obtained freedom of private enterprise. The people of Cuba will flourish (with the economic pros and cultural cons that come along with it), while PR will languish as its people sit back and demand someone else fix their problems for them.

 

The time is ripe for PR to reinvent itself and truly do something about its decades-long colonialist situation and welfare mentality. Unfortunately all I see is more of the same: wah wah wah not my fault someone else broke it gimme gimme gimme.

 

Puerto Ricans are too fucking proud for their own good, and everybody's refusing to eat the big piece of humble pie that's been served on their table.

A short piece my friend wrote on this, which I agree with 100%

 

Also, this following dude is fucking awesome and a perfect example of how Puerto Ricans should be helping each other move forward instead of wasting time complaining. Laid off by Fortuño? Start your own business and he'll design your logo and branding for free:

I just want to give a hand to God and let him know how absolutely awesome this would be and how we the penitent would be overjoyed by such a heavenly offering.

We're both aware that I'm familiar with island politics and economics. While Cayo Hueso is (what?) 1/4 the size of San Juan it's still basically local fat cats and the US Navy, plus a detached/disinterested Washington contingent. Investors show up, say there's 1.5mil in the bank to fund this and the locals know that 1.5 has already disappeared. Eternal optomism led us to believe that it would disappear into OUR pockets but, you know, it never did... it just disappeared. More money poured in but that was a failing effort and investors went bankrupt. C'est la vie.

Yeah, I can relate, you know now it's Raul and not Fidel so much but... you heard about the revocation of the ration cards? No longer will Cubans be provided for, they must work and show personally what they contribute now. I don't think this is going to be a huge hurdle for the Cubanos, they been doing well with next to nothing for a whole pile of years, now to be unleashed and prove their own personal merits... It was Raul who opened international markets for the first time in the 90's... it's a potential wildfire.

 

The time is ripe for PR to reinvent itself and truly do something about its decades-long colonialist situation and welfare mentality.

 

You know, goddamn I hope so. I've had a few Boriqua roommates and they have all worked more than most but they all mentioned moving to NYC and getting on some govt. paylist as a fallback plan. Only one did but 1 of 3 is shitty odds.

 

Puerto Ricans are too fucking proud for their own good, and everybody's refusing to eat the big piece of humble pie that's been served on their table.

 

I certainly hope y'all eat that pie and come out ahead. I was raised next to Cubanos and I consider myself personally closer to them but I don't think you guys are really that differnt from each other. I know that's not really a cool thing to say but, being apart from the 'conflict' I just don't see any real differences other than ideological impositions.The political situations (at least these days) is nearing parity and I think the only real cultural differences left are outdated crap that the government told you (or them). I can't really buy the idea of some PR revolution. I think that's some shit born in the prisons and not really well thought out. I wish for PR the same type of bloodless revolution I see happening in Cuba. The restoration of the common man in government, the general accountability of local officials...

 

Do you really need a revolution to take the country back from a bunch of cruise ships and Bacardi?
