jim32rr: Cut the cord, time for their Independence Day


Actually, they voted to become a state last time around.  The Democrat president, and the democrat controlled congress, with some help from Spanish hating republicans, were able to crush the peoples wishes, because corporations in Puerto Rico don't want to have to start paying the same wages and benefits to to Puerto Ricans, that they do in the states.  (Territories get special minimum wage laws)  An increase in wages, and federal money, that statehood would have brought would have probably gone a long way towards stabilizing Puerto Ricos economy, and bringing down their crime rate.  Too bad for them, that Obama and Harry Reid are perfectly willing to sell out their political ideology, when it comes between making lobbyist happy, and having to deal with the welfare of Latin people.

Puerto Rico CAN be dangerous, if you choose to ignore a few basic rules:

1) Unless you're with someone from the island or in a group, don't just go wandering around like some lost puppy.  Especially if you don't speak Spanish.  That's just stupid.
2) If someone tries to pull the old, "Pardon me, sir?  Can you please help me with [insert XYZ sad story here]?" and you can't immediately tell if it's legit (gunshot wound, carrying an unconcious person, holding their own bloody limbs and seeing the still dripping machinery that took them off), just say, "lo siento, no puedo ayudarle" and get the f*ck out of there.
3) Don't buy drugs from anyone down there.  Just don't do it.  They'll try and make the transaction happen in some dark little area, where "coincidentally" there may be a few unseemly looking fellows who will respectfully ask for your money.  And if you say no, they'll ask again... considerably less respectfully.
4) Lock everything up tight at night.  DUH.
5) If it's late at night and you want to stroll around, stick to the main road on Isla Verde, or the busy, touristy areas of Viejo San Juan.  If you must "explore", do so in the daytime.
6) Apparently, red lights serve only as a suggestion when it gets really late.  At least that's how it seems when I drive there.

Aside from the above, PR is an awesome island and a great vacation.  Cool people, beautiful people, delicious food, and just a very nice vibe overall.  Its super cheap to fly there now, and you can easily spend a few days just lounging on the beach during the day and gambling/dancing in the casinos at night.  I love it.

Fissile: RottenEggs: AbiNormal: Want to have fun? Call a Peurto Rican a filthy Mexican.

/Make sure you got your running shoes on.

Yeah they do enjoy believing that they are superior to Mexicans ,

===============

They are very chauvinistic in how they view themselves compared to other Hispanics.   Funny thing is that most of the Mexicans I know work their asses off, and most PRs don't.


This is like pretty much every immigrant story. If you swam, ran or got in the cargo hold of a boat, you already know the value of hard work. Once you're born here, it's pretty much hit or miss.

Over in 1.   Buh-bye.   I doubt very much the Commies are going to take over anymore, we don't need it.  Of course, it just means that the Chinese will step in and buy the place, but we've already sold the rest of the country to them, what's 1 insignificant shiatty island?

LawrencePerson: So, about twice as bad as Chicago.

Did they declare Puerto Rico a Gun free Zone?



Considering the murder rate, it's probably a free gun zone.

900 homicides out of a population of 4,000,000? If my maths are correct, that's a rate of 22.5 per 100,000. About half of Detroit's rate.
