Comedy is so mean and disrespectful! Why don't you comedians learn how to imitate David Letterman, or just move to Puerto Rico and inde-penance the Porto Ricans, or lead them to freedomland so they can be just like us; you goofy, dirty, stinky, ungrateful comic Commies! You couldn't even make your nasty show if it weren't for huge, transnational American companies and their super cool and soon to be upgraded gadgets, made by labor arbitrage in pollution exporting China. "It's so cheeeaaaap!!!"

And think of what life would be like if you couldn't experiment on rats and other kinds vermin. It's not like the United States of New Miracles's government is bucking for Joseph Mengele status. Don't you ever listen to your public intellectual, world heritage treasure Noam Chomsky? "When we do it, it's right. When they do it, it's wrong." (KISSIACW) Keep It Simple Stupid In A Complex World.) RT's Joseph "S" believed in pseudo-scientist Ilya Ivanov and look where that got'em.

(Who has high-technology? WE DO!!! Yeah!!! There's two kinds of science, science that makes money and science that just wants to brag about knowing shit.)

At least we know how to take our vitamins, and because Puerto Rico is our friend and under our umbrella of right beliefs, Puerto Ricans do too. Remember, before "food systems" were invented by big business as a way to make caloric energy more efficient, indigenous Americans (not to mention walking labor saving devices) were the original Corn Walkers. Now, thank God, they can get more efficient and cheaper corn calories at McDonalds.

Spainglish? Don't get me started! Can you say, Lingua Franca? Gracias p_nta! What's wrong a little Eigo for the people? Everybody's learning it. Can you say, Lingua Euro or Lingua Dolor Americano? If Trump gets his wall maybe we can keep our language.

Have you thought of the contagion in New York City? There are more Puerto Ricans in the US than there are on their densely packed Caribbean island. I wonder why that is? See, if they come to the US where good Christians bomb abortion clinics, where you can freeze embryos, go to quack fertility clinics, make deposits in sperm banks, rock and roll at mega-churches, it just might just be possible to make more babies. These imports can help to keep our tax base up for all those damn socialist programs the old people are going to need if they can't afford to upload their consciousness into a machine, or print new liver, kidneys and hearts, or grow new limbs, or get implants! (Do you think Caribbean asses would be so corn-fed-plump if it weren't for a little American Nip-Tuck innovation?)

What do you call a real Latin American? Puerto Rican, because they are our friends without benefits moron!

Sorry for the rant, I just got back from Boca Chika D.R. and saw a woman on the beach with her t____ies hanging out, and darn it - I liked it. When you're over 50 and have money, you have all they need, and what's wrong with that? Keep'em dependent and they'll have no regrets.

Anyway, your show did make me erupt in nervous giggles. It's a bit scary, but I guess that's ok.

2/3 of Puerto Ricans may flee to U.S. and overwhelm govt services
by Dr. Eowyn
Puerto Rico map

Puerto Rico is an incorporated U.S. territory in the Caribbean with a current total population of around 3.6 million people, 12.5% of whom are black or sub-Saharan African. As such, people born in Puerto Rico are natural-born citizens of the United States.

Three days ago on June 29, 2015, Puerto Rico's governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla admitted the island is broke and asked that the commonwealth be allowed to restructure its debts under U.S. bankruptcy code. But Puerto Rico is not eligible for debt restructuring under the U.S. bankruptcy code because it is not a municipality.

Puerto Rico's debt is $73 billion, while its GDP in 2012 was $103.5 billion, which means the U.S. territory's debt is an astounding 70.5% of its GDP!

Alan Yuhas reports for The Guardian, July 2, 2015, that unable to pay its debt, Puerto Rico has begun rationing water, closing schools and watching its healthcare system collapse. Already, 45% of Puerto Ricans are living in poverty, and that percentage is sure to increase.

Puerto Ricans, being already U.S. citizens, are moving to America. Even before the bankruptcy, emigration to the mainland has accelerated in recent years. From 2003 to 2013, more than 1.5 million people had left Puerto Rico. Today, 60% of Puerto Ricans live in the States and 40% on the island according to a 2014 Pew report, with most moving to Florida. Cuny professors Edwin Meléndez and Carlos Vargas-Ramos predict that by 2020, it’s likely that two-thirds of Puerto Ricans will reside in US states.

Edgardo González, coordinator of the activist group Defenders of Puerto Rico, said that most Puerto Ricans are arriving in central Florida, but many cannot find jobs or even housing. González said, “Some might stay with family for a few weeks, but for those who don’t have family, people end up homeless because of the lack of services. People end up living in hotels, living in cars or on the street. Then you have people who are homeless with kids, who get in trouble with the law, and you have to get into it with childcare and welfare services.”

Making matters worse is the fact that professionals with higher degrees are leaving the island in search of work, draining Puerto Rico of the talent it needs to resuscitate its economy and healthcare sector.

In New York, fears of the wave of new immigrants have seeped into the city’s sizable Puerto Rican communities. On Wednesday the Bronx borough president, Rubén Díaz Jr, warned on NPR that the surge would sap the city’s services, especially in the cash-strapped parts of his borough.

The Bronx is poorest of New York’s five boroughs, with almost 30% of its population living below the poverty line. Almost 300,000 Puerto Ricans live in Bronx County, more than any other in the country, according to 2010 data; Brooklyn’s Kings County and Orange County, Florida, follow at second and third.

“Puerto Rico continues to have people leave to the tune of 100 individuals on a daily basis,” said Díaz, who is himself of Puerto Rican descent. “We’re losing a doctor a day that is leaving the island and coming over here. The local governments here in the United States, we have to then absorb the added cost to our localities in order to provide services.”

Díaz urged action by the federal government, saying Congress should give Puerto Rico the power to declare bankruptcy and restructure its debt. As a US territory, the semi-autonomous island does not have the same authorities that allow others to file for Chapter 9 bankruptcy, as Detroit did to cope with its own disastrous finances. “We’re not asking for a bailout, we’re not asking for the federal government to give Puerto Rico a dime,” he said.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said this week that the Obama administration is not considering any form of bailout for the island.

The island’s non-voting delegate in Congress, Pedro Pierluisi, called for Congress to address the island’s political status, and introduced a bill that would grant Puerto Rico the powers to declare public enterprises bankrupt. Pierluisi advocates statehood for Puerto Rico, and characterized the island's non-statehood in a letter to the New York Times as inequity: “No people have ever prospered while being treated unequally, and it is not reasonable to expect Puerto Rico to be the exception to that rule.”

But María Enchautegui, a senior fellow at the research thinktank Urban Institute, explains that the problem is probably more intractable than simply bestowing statehood or bankruptcy powers on the territory. Chapter 9 authorities “would be only for municipal debt, which is very small in the whole of Puerto Rico. So I don’t think that is going to solve a lot of the problem.”

Enchautegui suggested that Puerto Rico should restructure its varied debts not just to cut losses but to overhaul the government. “While we are looking at what agencies to eliminate or change, we could actually make a more efficient government,” she said. Restructuring public-private arrangements, as with electrical companies and utilities, could also bring in precious revenues.

Such changes would not require Congress’s intervention, although Washington would have to get involved to bring Puerto Rico’s Medicaid and Medicare systems to the same level as the rest of the states.

Enchautegui points out that the out-migration from Puerto Rico to America “is now more than 5 million people, most who keep relations with Puerto Rico, have family there they go and visit. Those could be human resources, capital and knowledge that can bring back investments, businesses, networks. They left the island, that’s the way they have dealt with the crisis, but they are very connected to it.”
