(The Hill)   Puerto Rico : Since 95% of our island is without power and most people lack the means to cook; could we get a waiver of the food stamp rule prohibiting the purchase of hot food with them? Trump administration: Short answer? No. Long answer: Nooooooo   ( thehill.com) divider line

uerto Rico requested the administration temporarily lift the restrictions on the program, formally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
So far, the administration has refused, even after granting similar waivers in Texas after Hurricane Harvey and in Florida after Hurricane Irma.

Can't have them buying lobster and Coke, now. We know that Puerto Ricans are notorious welfare cheats, after all, unlike God-fearing Americans in Texas and Florida.

/sarcasm

I can't take any more of this today. I'm starting to hate everyone, and that's not rational.

 I don't think I have ever hated anyone as much as I hate Donald.  I hope every evil, selfish thing he has ever done comes back at him harder. Anyone who still supports him is equally evil, equally immoral, equally wrong.

I've just started unfriending people who post pro-Trump crap that shows up on my timeline. I've stopped giving a f*ck. I don't want to know them any more. I don't care if that makes me a bad person. I'm sick of them.

So Governor Rossello, I guess all those good words about President Trump did not have the desired effect after all.  Perhaps you just did not lay it on thick enough.  But he did have nice things to say about you personally.  Not that it did much good for your constituents.

I think it's still getting worse. I was recently unfriended by several of the rednecks I grew up with when I commented on a trumpsplaining post that "A literal bag of shiat, would be less a bag of shiat than donald trump."

Seems to almost be a self correcting problem?

If it makes you feel better, treating the Puerto Ricans like second class citizens is short-sighted stupidity that is almost certain to backfire when waves of them migrate to Florida with a Category 5-sized chip on their shoulder against the GOP.

Silver linings, and all that.

I pretty sure Canada would love to accept Puerto Rico as province.  I'll just put that out there.  It would be awesome to fly to the tropic with just a driver's license as ID.  It gets f$cking cold up here.

As soon as Trump got his photo op, he's done giving a fark about PR.  The governor and mayors are stuck trying to grease the wheels or scream loud enough the admin gets embarrassed.

They are reduced to being beggars outside the castle.

Louis XVI actually meant well for his people, if feebly.

Donald I holds them all in contempt unless the are oligarchs.
 
2017-10-03 04:42:44 PM  
What a sick farking bigoted asshole.  Relegating over a million people to be treated worse than dogs.

This should be front-page leading story material on every news outlet.

Of course all the "Good Christians" that support Trump won't say a word, because Jesus would have done the same thing.

I don't have anyone that posts pro-Trump crap. But rest assured, if I did, they would have been unfriended long before now.

Although, they seem like the kind of people who would post idiotic memes and hoaxes. So I guess I purged them for crappy reasons rather than for a big reason. Oh well.
 
2017-10-03 05:32:23 PM  
90% of the island has no electricity. They don't have refrigerators. Or a way to cook. WTF?

I am so sick of this asshole.

Who looks at a situation like this and says, "No. No food for you!"?

They've mostly given up making excuses for Trump and are now focusing on how it's all Puerto Ricos fault.  There's a thread a few links down where one is trying to sell PRs federal tax contributions as a reason.

Add another thing the DNC could do to encourage Florida to flip.

But, they won't, for fear of "politicizing" the tragedy.

Not so much everyone, in my case...but just them.  The Trump supporters.  The non-voters.  The ones who either did nothing to stop this, or greeted the invaders at the gate with wide open arms.
