Trump's already told Puerto Rico what to do if they want a faster, better response - pay up.

FormlessOne: Trump's already told Puerto Rico what to do if they want a faster, better response - pay up.


Which is ironic, considering that he owned a golf course there that defaulted, and he personally owes Puerto Rico $33 million.

And nobody anywhere in America is going to get a single bit of help if he doesn't get his bloated orange carcass off of Twitter and stop biatching about how he thinks America's greatest problem right now is football players' kneeling during the anthem.

Solid advice from the same person who has burned a succession of people he owes money to or who have performed services for him.

Trump probably thinks Puerto Rico is that orange bodega somewhere north of 125th St.

The US military has people who could have all those hospitals up and running yesterday, and even put up some additional field hospitals by yesterday afternoon. The fact that has not happened is disturbing. People are dying.

Paywall sites should strike a deal with news aggregation sites so that any revenue produced by subscription purchases gives a small percentage to the newspapers who subscribe.  Those who sign up for, say TotalFark, would then also have the benefit of seeing fewer/no ads on the partner news sites.  Subscription may go up for TF but for no ads in most sites...I would pay more.

Homeland Security needs to get off the couch and stop playing video airport. It's a frigging island.  Boats.  Ships.  Is there no military skill in clearing a port?

Why is the US trying to be defeated by a hurricane and let 3.5M die?  Columbus was able to get there in 1493. Will it take as long as Columbus' trip to get food, energy, water, and civilisation to the island?

I wouldn't assume it's because of laziness or lack of desire.  Puerto Rico has been dealing with Congressionally imposed austerity measures due to their debt crisis, and a major hurricane strike farks up even the best laid plans.

Communications networks are down so people can't organize to do what needs to be done quickly, roads are washed out and blocked with debris, many vehicles have been disabled due to flood or damage from flying projectiles, fuel is scarce, there are just a ton of logistical obstacles.

Gathering aid materials is easy, effectively distributing them around a devastated island without a convenient and fully functional base of operations is much harder.

Did you bother to read the article?  All of this is covered, making your comments, I guess, equally fake.  The piece was just a journalistic examination of the difficulties of logistics in a catastrophe of this magnitude, mentions Trump and the government efforts positively, and merely states that Trump's insistence on focusing on kneeling football players is not, perhaps, the best use of a President's prestige in a time of crisis to give to the nation.  But please speak down to people more, we all thrive on that.

Thousands of humanitarian wagons and merchandise for supermarkets began arriving in Puerto Rico last week.
Cargo shipments sent by FEMA through the Crowley shipping barges have not stopped, hurrying to their distribution destinations, said Jose Ayala, vice president of Crowley in Puerto Rico.
However, the concern executives of the company is that the vast majority of merchandise for trades, such as supermarkets, is waiting at the dock.
"Our terminal is full of containers. Since Saturday we've already dropped 1,200, "said Jose Nazario, Crowley's terminal operations manager on the Island.
ADVERTISING
"The problem we're seeing is that truckers are not coming to look for cargo. Only 10% is dispatched. " "People have to look for the cargo to reach their final destination."
Since Hurricane Maria was announced, the El Conquistador barge remained in the area of Hispaniola and entered the port of San Juan, where it began to unload on Saturday and to dispatch the trucks.
"In addition to bringing FEMA cargo, it also brought food, commercial products, building materials. What we can call 'emergency items', "Ayala said.
Then came the barge "455" that unloaded on Sunday and today they were doing the same with "La Princesa", in a simultaneous operation, which is not common, thanks to the fact that their employees showed up, despite the circumstances.
"We want to get La Princesa so that tomorrow (Tuesday) we can work (another barge) 'La Fortaleza', which is bigger and is waiting outside to enter," explained Ayala.
He added that this week also expect a fifth barge, "The Queen", followed by "Miami" on Thursday. Then, the week will close with a new barge that was not scheduled to arrive on the Island until January, but was included in the rotation given the urgency.
He pointed out that this flow of barges, with a shortened itinerary, is out of the ordinary due to the situation in Puerto Rico.
"The people should not be alarmed that products of basic necessity are not coming. The products are. The question is how they get from the terminal to the gondolas, how they arrive. That is the part of the logistics is the one that has not started to work as it should, "said Ayala.
This medium could observe the frenzy with which the trucks unloaded the containers of the Princess, but at that moment they had to pause a few minutes because the barge raised of level because they were not introducing empty wagons to him and the risk they jam the wagons. So they had to introduce water into the tanks to compensate.
"It's important that we can send those empty wagons (to the United States) because in Jacksonville we have 2,400 reservations of space to bring cargo to Puerto Rico and 600 of Philadelphia," warned Ayala. "The alternative is to rent more containers, but that will lead to an increase in costs. Of course, we know that truckers are going through the same problems as the rest of the country. "
From the top of the Crowley dock you could also see that a boat from the company TOTE with a similar scenario: with all the containers out and none on the ship.
For its part, Edwin Marrero of the Broad Truckers Front said that carriers want to help, but they have problems with fuel.
ADVERTISING
"It is true that many lost their trucks, but many who did not suffer damage have the problem that they do not have diesel to get to (the docks) and the gas stations are full," said Marrero.
"We need the Public Service Commission to help us get the diesel, perhaps on the same pier," he said.
At least the FEMA cargo has flowed smoothly. After completing the shipments to the shelters, since yesterday they are sending cargoes to distribution centers. Yesterday they sent Mayagüez, Canóvanas, Arecibo, Bayamón and Ceiba.
Humanitarian aid includes water and food, while FEMA's blue awnings will soon begin to arrive.
"Yesterday 23 gigantic generators (of electricity) were brought down by FEMA. They were immediately taken out and FEMA took them. They were assigned to hospitals and the Aqueduct and Sewer Authority, "said Ayala. "Shortly after we received news that the water began to reach several sectors."

The Zen Philosopher Basho: tuxq: speciaal: tuxq: The Atlantic will never miss an opportunity to bash Trump...garbage writers

Truth is, aid is already on the docks in PR. It has been for a few days. PR isn't distributing it. Their logistics are shiat. Unless you've been, you won't understand.

Uh huh.

Tell me more about this mystical fantasy land you inhabit.

See for yourself in my 2nd comment to this thread. FEMA dropped of massive shipments of aid right after Irma. Get your head out of your ass and learn the truth: the atlantic, just like salon, is fake news.

No, "fake news" was all the Russian articles you intellectual giants fell for on Facebook during the election.

"The source is RealAmericunNews.ru? Sounds legit."

Catlenfell: We're keeping our hospital ships in their port in Virginia.
These should have been dispatched immediately.


Bullshiat fake outrage. The USNS Comfort is already undergoing preparations to get underway in a few days. It doesn't just sit there outfitted with disposable supplies ready to go in an hour. It takes time to prepare.

divx88: WhoGAS: blodyholy: FormlessOne: Trump's already told Puerto Rico what to do if they want a faster, better response - pay up.

Gotta pay The Atlantic first:

(I know, I know, private window, incognito, etc etc)

Paywall sites should strike a deal with news aggregation sites so that any revenue produced by subscription purchases gives a small percentage to the newspapers who subscribe.  Those who sign up for, say TotalFark, would then also have the benefit of seeing fewer/no ads on the partner news sites.  Subscription may go up for TF but for no ads in most sites...I would pay more.

Different levels of subscription could dictate how many ads are displayed on the linked news sites.

After fixing up my aunt's computer to block all that bullshiat and it actually made browsing not feel like the 90s, I still don't really give two shiats that I block everything. It's easy to get around every paywall.


I, too, give no shiats about the fact you block everything.  I do, however, give two shiats about paywalls that block me from browsing and I think this would be an option to benefit all parties.  If one wants TF, they get several levels and some may choose the lack of ads on several main news sites.  The reason I don't get TF is because there really is little value to me aside from the rare intelligent TF Discussion.  But if there were, say five sites which are often linked that also provided no ads and I could legitimately support news sites while getting the occassional intelligent conversation...well, that's worth it.  I would pay, I don't know, say $8 if the top 5/10 linked paywall sites blocked ads for me when linked to Fark.  Perhaps the same for Reddit.  Think of all the revenue the newspapers and aggregators would capture.  People who normally would not sign up for 10 different newspapers could not access them all for a nominal fee AND have a terrific community in which to discuss them.

This isn't about "I can block ads already!" because everyone can.  This is about getting no ads for a small fee so we can support accurate and excellent news reporting.  It's not that we don't want to support them, it's that nobody in their right mind would pay for 15 different news sites and this would tie it all together.

anuran: The gummint gave immediate Jones Act waivers to Texas and Florida but denied them for Puerto Rico. Funny, that.


Which would matter more if they didn't already admit lifting the Jones act on Texas and Florida had nothing to do with humanitarian reasons and was about getting the gas and oil pipelines in those states back up and running. If Puerto Rico wanted to have the Jones act lifted they should have had oil lines.

Honestly though, given the aftermaths of the last few natural disasters it has become abundantly clear that disaster relief is just another issue for political wrangling. When politicians start voting against sending relief to US states because they're the wrong political affiliation this really shouldn't be a surprise.
