I agree with Trump’s PR tweets

More than three million people live in PR, the commonwealth’s government can’t figure out how to get some of those people to drive trucks to transport the stuff sitting in the ports to where it’s needed?

It’s the opposite of Texas where prole whites organized themselves to help with hurricane relief. In Florida, even a nun took a chainsaw and started clearing debris. In PR, no one is doing anything to help themselves, they are waiting for people from the mainland to do everything for them. Why don’t Puerto Ricans have the same initiative to go out and clear the roads?

  1. Lower trust/lower self-initiative/less access to adequate tools/greater fear of chaos when they go into the streets (like violence and random brigades of marauders roaming around)?

    With that said, Maria was worse than Harvey or Irma, even though the media hasn’t been reporting on it due to being distracted by the NFL retardation, and Puerto Rico not being an official state and all.

  5. You’re talking out of your ass just like Trump is. I don’t know what you’re basing this on other than a basic understanding of southern whites and, an even more rudimentary one of puerto ricans, and a complete ignorance of how the actual situation on the ground in Puerto Rico itself compares to Texas and Florida. I sort of commend your reluctance to bring up HBD but I don’t know if your logic is any more sensible because of it.

    And as I said in another post, this is dangerously stupid politics because an exodus from Puerto Rico has the potential to usher in a semi permanent democratic supremacy in presidential elections. Trump needs to be thinking about how to keep Puerto Rican islanders where they are and get as many of those living in the US to move back as possible.

    • You have a point. The more refugees and immigrants entry to the United States signifies a smaller portion of the American pie for native Whites. Illegal immigrants are not a problem, it’s the children of legal immigrants who are putting more competitors in the playing field that lower wages and take away jobs (whether from merit or affirmative action or both) from Whites.

One’s son is going to med school in John Hopkins (don’t know if its a high ranked school or not), another’s starting bachelors in UC system and another pursuing Nursing degree.

        What I am trying to say is that while a lot of south Asians arrived in the US as H1b’s and almost all exclusively work tech jobs, their kids are diversifying into other professions.

        The young generation of South Asians are out earning Jews of the same age group, when it comes to individual income (independent of inheritance and family connections). One could make a case that South Asians make better academicians than East Asians, and could possibly become the New Jews in Academia/University research.

    • Puerto Rico’s main economy as a colony of Spain, before its commonwealth status, was mostly agricultural. When the American capitalists came in, they destroyed much of this sector, and installed manufacturing, and when manufacturing was cheaper elsewhere, the jobs moved elsewhere. If capitalism harms White proles in places like the Midwest, imagine what it does to people with a lower genetic IQ.

There are 5 million Puerto Ricans in the US. and sure, most of them hated Trump already, but now they have motivation to mobilize and go vote. It would have been pretty easy to make a similar point in a diplomatic way without lashing out like a child but Trump can‘t help himself. If the endgame is actual open civil war than Trump is playing this correctly, but I don‘t think that is what Trump wants (he just wants tax cuts).

PR’s residents are going through an extremely difficult (perhaps life threatening) time. Wait a little while – then criticize the mayor. She and all the other leaders down there probably deserve it for a multitude of things.

American flags flying on the neat beautiful houses, two people a girl and and a guy actually ran holding the flags. This was the America that I knew when I came here 45 years ago. There are still reservations left. Nice event.

    But what I was thinking is that these nice people are unprepared to deal with the massive onslaught on their country, race and a way of life. There is no leadership to guide them and no grass roots movement. That left me with a sad feeling after an otherwise beautiful race.

  26. In my experience, any mixture of NAM in the broader population makes a society low-trust because the individuals in it, on the whole, cannot grasp the logic of high-trust behavior (my experience with the supposed best of NAM-White mixes, who went to Prep and then Ivy schools).

    Thus, Puerto Rico, in spite of being the beneficiary of what should be the perfect recipe for a high trust community (relative isolation, access to the economy and funding from the wealthiest nation in the world) has lower civic function than a poor white population living under social pressure from a large NAM population.
