"and only going to get worse while the current administration continues to ignore the hard science. Sad"

Our political culture is going to have to come to grips with and draw a definitive line between our predatory capitalism and the roll of government, as our government is really just an extension of predatory capitalism, and there is no possibility of our government ever being a representative of the people until it does.

Our elections systems are already a big joke and I'm failing to understand why we even go along with it.

Did Trump ever donate the 1M dollars he pledged to the Sandy and Harvey funds yet?

Trump finally says something about devastated Puerto Rico via Twitter after spending days raging against the NFL:

Texas & Florida are doing great but Puerto Rico, which was already suffering from broken infrastructure & massive debt, is in deep trouble...

...It's old electrical grid, which was in terrible shape, was devastated. Much of the Island was destroyed, with billions of dollars....

...owed to Wall Street and the banks which, sadly, must be dealt with. Food, water and medical are top priorities - and doing well.


Funny, I don't remember him ragging on Houston for their lack of land-use planning, zoning, etc. that exacerbated their flooding.

He only said something about Puerto Rico after news reports pointed out his lack of response.
That seems to be a pattern we've seen before.

PR governor:
"We need something tangible, a bill that actually answers to our need right now," he said. "Otherwise, there will be ... a massive exodus to the (mainland) United States."

Oh, won't our racist in chief love that!

That's because those in Houston have mostly white skin, those in Puerto Rico don't, and white people MUST ALWAYS lecture brown skinned people on how inferior they are.

He will add Puerto Rico to the terrorist no travel list.

The narcissist in chief gets nasty at the mayor of San Juan for telling the truth. Oh, no, bad optics. Can't have that! Never mind that people are dying. They're not "real Americans" after all, they didn't vote for Trump...
