Thousands have assembled at the capitol calling for the resignation of governor Ricardo Rossello who is a member of the democrat wing knon as the New Progressive Party (Partido Nuevo Progresista / PNP) and is accused of making denigrating comments against the lbgt community. But after intense meetings with party leadership, who no longer support the governor, Rossello had announced that, after self reflection, he will not be stepping down.

But the turmoil runs much deeper than that.

According to a well known local newspaper (El Nuevo Dia) as well as FNC:

 

The FBI arrested former education secretary Julia Keleher, former Puerto Rico Health Insurance Administration head Ángela Ávila-Marrero; businessmen Fernando Scherrer-Caillet and Alberto Velázquez-Piñol, and education contractors Glenda E. Ponce-Mendoza and Mayra Ponce-Mendoza, who are sisters, on fraud and related charges.

“It was alleged that the defendants engaged in a public corruption campaign and profited at the expense of the Puerto Rican citizens and students," [*]

"Hurricane Maria brought us pain...", said an angry protestor.  I'd say that the corruption caused by the "six" was/is much more painful.  And many wonder where did the Hurricane Maria $$$  go.  I never did.

Luis;

you said - 'so did I when I lived there', which answers my wondering if ya ever did.  which transitions back to my attention to earthquakes over the past several years. I've wondered - can/do the residents in P.R. feel those multiple earthquakes each day?

...and continuing down my earthquake path but not about P.R. = i notice today that there's quakes at the tip of Gulf of California, which is the 1st time i've seen them there. BUT -- it certainly fits a theory of mine that I've mention a couple times. That the quakes will eventually extend the G.of C. up to provide ocean access to the SW tip of Arizona. (maybe fairly soon?)   -this theory is rooted in the Australian plate being the fastest moving plate by far, the direction it is moving and the shape of the Pacific plate which it is pushing on.

"Do we ever demand account of where and to whom the funds are spent and are given to?"

?!

There are "oversight" committees in DC up-the-wazoo! They do nothing. The "elite" members of ALL those committees vote "Yay" on every OVERspending bill. We are an additional $T more in the hole under DT's administration alone . . .and counting.

Many...actually MOST...of the American citizenry...still believe that the Federal Reserve is part of the "federal" govt; thus are obligated to open the books to the people.  WRONG!

The Fed was granted Constitutional powers to be established as a prviate entity; to be the keepers of our currency and our Treasure; and to manipulate our economy and markets. And the Fed answers to NOBODY.  Where do those powers and protections come from?  It's called the 16thA.  And, like a cancer, it's been spreading ever since.

But the federal govt had been accumulating debt, and NOT even paying it down, going back to our FIRST potus reaching up to 1913. Our demise was destined w/ FDR's "New Deal / SocSec Act" and LBJ's "Great Society/ War On Poverty" and the Medicare/Medicaid Act.

What's the medical protocol for cancer, Jo?  It has to be REMOVED, right?  Otherwise it WILL kill ya!

The corruption in govt, and the selfishness of the American citizenry ("GIVE ME MINE!!!"), was ingrained within our moral-dna eons ago.  The problem is mankind. Thus, man won't change it's ways...by choice.  It's all going to have to play out; and it will - Biblical proportions.   jmho

Do we ever demand account of where and to whom the funds are spent and are given to?  I've never heard of any time that we have ever had oversight.  Just a free for all with our tax dollars given to more crooked politicians and rogue governments that do little to anything for their people.  Add to that the ungrateful attitude of so many of these people and that they plainly hate the U.S.!  Why the hell are we even sending money to these countries?  Wouldn't it be better used to put back into the SS funds they have robbed from us all these years?

"I'd think even a well run government and society would have problems staying fiscally solvent."

(chuckle)

Hi, ole friend.  Terms like "well run" and "solvent" should never be used in the same sentence w/ the word "government".  ;)

"We knew and saw pictures of our relief material being hoarded"

Hello, Jo Def

My family that have lived there for several decades "saw" the theft / corruption.  So did I when I lived there. 

""

There's no left or right; blue or red; or man or woman where greed and corruption is concerned. It's as old as what's considered the "oldest profession" is.

seems like we've always been funneling bookoos of wasted money into P.R. and Haiti. Ever since I took notice anyways, about 40 years ago i guess. Kinda always guessed it was somehow justified within the political realm as well spent to prevent Cuba from taking/ruling them. BUT - it's also been a great demonstration of a 'facts of nature' moral, on what the results of continual free money are.

Givin that every day on the earthquake website - https://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map/   (<-- today is a lesser amount day, so far)- P.R. has multiple 2.5+ magnitude quakes indicated that are shaking up things - I'd think even a well run government and society would have problems staying fiscally solvent. It's a sure-fire money pit with corruption in charge of that free money.

We knew and saw pictures of our relief material being hoarded and used for political gains.  While we sent millions and millions of bucks and relief goods much didn't get to the people that needed the help! Some still falsely think that we never sent them any help!  I hope they all burn!  Stealing from people that are at their lowest point is despicable!  Other than the Clinton's what kind of low-life does that?
