Public Call Box: How about dumping the current President and Congress. Does that work for you?
justafarkingchef: Translation: Poor people who are in debt aren't worth the cost of saving.
penetrating_virga: PR: Gimmee faster!
the_innkeeper: Hm... Why did we never hear about the "big decisions" that need to be made about Houston and Florida..?
weddingsinger: Public Call Box: How about dumping the current President and Congress. Does that work for you?Yes.I'm never not sad anyone voted for this a**hole./this week he also invented a Senator who is in the hospital, and that's why the healthcare vote failed. He repeated the lie at least 8 times.
Cheron: How about some long term economic stimulus. The Jones Act requires that any thing ship internally in the US be done on a US built, flagged, owned and crewed ship. What if this was repealed for PR and other US island territories. The cost of goods would come down, the economy would grow, JOBS and so forth.
Khellendros: Big decisions? Sure - let's make the big decision and rebuild their infrastructure like they're going to be a state. One of the biggest concerns in PR statehood from a financial perspective was how much money they'd need to get the place up to federal requirements for infrastructure.If we're dropping billions to help them recover, let's do it the right way. Bring their entire power, water, communication grids up to federal standards. All public and commercial buildings rebuilt to mainland building codes - equivalent to Florida or Louisiana storm conditions, minimum.How about we start treating them like Americans?
Slypork: I was just re-watching Designated Survivor and they said the President's Secret Service codename was "Phoenix". It got me thinking about what Donnie's is and found the following:Donald Trump - MogulMelania Trump - MuseIvanka Trump - MarvelDonald Trump Jr. - MountaineerEric Trump - MarksmanDonald should be renamed Mongoloid and Ivanka should be Meschugena (Yiddish for crazy woman). What should the rest of them be renamed?
Barricaded Gunman: What's it going to finally f*cking TAKE, Republicans, for you to do your goddamn job and rid the world of this fat orange asshole?
Grungehamster: I literally heard someone snort and say "maybe they should have thought of this before voting for Hillary" when they overheard the television saying that federal response has been slow or insufficient.That's right: that this could be seen as retaliation was justified that Puerto Rico failed to deliver their 0 electoral votes to Trump made sense to them.
