Puerto Rico Representative Introduces Bill To Make Territory A State By 2021

The everyday person in Puerto Rico is the one that is suffering. The government of Puerto Rico is completely full of corruption and should be held accountable for their actions.

It’s time to cut Puerto Rico. If they can afford bonuses in that amount we don’t need to be giving them money for hurricane restoration.

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello Nevares last month asked federal taxpayers to shell out $94 billion to pay for the territory’s recovery from Hurricane Maria — then turned around and paid out about $100 million in Christmas bonuses to island government employees.

President Trump reacted to this situation and liberals decided to attack our President and not the corrupt government!

So we gonna think twice before we let Puerto Rico have a congressional representative!

Puerto Rico has been a U.S. territory since 1898. Though its residents are U.S. citizens, the territory does not have a congressional representative with full voting powers and Puerto Ricans cannot vote in presidential elections.

Puerto Rico’s non-voting representative Jenniffer Gonzalez introduced a bill in Congress on Wednesday to grant statehood to the territory by 2021.

Gonzalez, the territory’s resident commissioner, said the legislation currently has 14 Democratic and 20 Republican sponsors, the Associated Press reported.

“This is the first step to open a serious discussion regarding the ultimate status for the island,” Gonzalez said, according to the AP.

The legislation would establish a bipartisan task force to write a report on the laws that would have to be altered or rescinded to make the island a U.S. state. The report would then be sent to the president and Congress, the AP reported.

The committee would also make recommendations on temporary economic measures that would need to be implemented as Puerto Rico becomes a state.

Territory officials have advocated for statehood for years. Puerto Ricans last year voted overwhelmingly in favor of becoming a state.

    BASIC REALISTIC GUN CONTROL: Teach your children to safely handle firearms. Dad began my firearms training at age 5 years (1941) with the then new Daisy “Red Ryder” BB gun, teaching what NOT TO DO and then what to safely do. I continue that tradition 30 years later with our three children, loaded firearms always present during my growing up years just as they were and always have been in our children’s growing up years and through to this very day. Our children as well as their parents; having grown up in Christian homes with parents that “ran a tight ship” were taught orally and by example RIGHT FROM WRONG and deviation from the right-way was forcefully ‘addressed’ by a ‘switching’. Truly I was so blessed by being born and having grown up in the Bible Belt in the Deep South to Born Again Christian parents; a blessing so many miss.

    THOSE GANGS WHICH ARE BEING INCITING TO RIOT BY THE HATEFUL SPOUTINGS OF DEMONICS SUCH A MAD MANIAC MAXINE AND NAZI NANCY, SNAKEY SCHUMER AND THIER KIND ARE:”FODDER”‘; THAT “FODDER” ACTUALLY THE EQUIVALENT OF THE BROWN SHIRTS OF HITLER’S 1930s RISE TO POWER AND THE STORMTROOPERS, THE SS & GESTAPO WHICH FOLLOWED REPLACING THE BROWN SHIRTS THE LEADERS OF WHICH HILER HAD EXECUTED WHEN HE LOST CONTROL OF THEM . THE FACIST MUSSOLINI OF ITALY HAD SIMILARLY ACTIVE MURDER THUG GANGS.

    RIOTING,, CIVIL COMMOTION, VANDALISM; LOOTING; BURNING; PROPERTY DESTRUCTION; ATTACK BOTH PHYSICAL AND MENTAL; THIS BY CRIMINAL TRASH:

    AND STALKING AS WELL IS ALWAYS A DANGEROUS ACTIVITY . . . WITH THE ATTENDANT POTENTIAL FOR FATAL RESULTS FOR THE STALKER.
    THIS REPORTEDLY TAKING PLACE JUST AFTER LADY SARAH WAS EXPELLED FROM THE VA. RED HEN AND ITS OWNER AFTER EXPELLING LADY SARAH’S PARTY FOLLOWED THEM TO THE RESTAURANT DOWN THE STREET WHILE GATHERING PEOPLE OF LIKE MINDSET TO GATHER THERE FOR A ROWDY DEMONSTRATION . . .

    THESE DEMONCRATS; NOTHING LESS THAN AN AMALGAMATION OF COMMUNIST-NATIONAL SOCIALIST-FASCIST AND THUS TOTALLY DEMONIC, DEVOTED SERVANTS OF THEIR GOD LUCIFER. AND THE LACK OF POLICE INTERVIEWING PROBABLY EXPLAINED WELL BY THE POSITION REPORTEDLY HELD BY THAT ROGUE OWNER IN THIS TOWNSHIP’S BUSINESS CARTEL TELLS QUITE A BIT ABOUT THE TOWN AS A WHOLE IN GENERAL AND SOME OF ITS CITIZENS IN PARTICULAR!!!.

    AS FOR THE THREATENED ATTACKS ON WE WHO ARE PATRIOTS AND THUS WELL ARMED THE ADVICE IS: “DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!!!”; DON’T RUSH YOUR APPOINTMENT WITH HELL, YOUR DEVILISH GOD, AND HIS DEMONS; AS YOU WILL BE THERE SOON ENOUGH!!!

    STALKING IS ALWAYS A POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS ACTIVITY. DON’T DO THAT EITHER!!!

    BEEN ARMED CONSTANTLY SINCE AGE 14 AND SINCE THEN THROUGHOUT A LIFE SPANNING NEARLY 81 YEARS AND WORKING IN 8 STATES OVER 35 OF THOSE YEARS AND IN POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS PLACES (THE TENEMENT PROJECTS ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF CHICAGO AN EXAMPLE) WHICH WORK DUTIES TOOK ME NEVER NECESSITATED AN ARMED RESPONSE; THAT FACT DUE TO THE TRIUNE GOD TO WHOM I HAVE BELONGED SINCE AGE 12 YEARS HAS ALWAYS PROVIDED THE PROMISED PROTECTION. THANK YOU, DEAR LORD.
    .
    STILL ALWAYS ARMED, TAKING SERIOUS THE ORIGINAL BOY SCOUT MOTTO: “BE PREPARED” TO ‘HEART’, I TRUST THAT I AND MY FAMILY WILL CONTINUE TO BE PROTECTED BY THE GOD TO WHOM WE BELONG. —— LBERTYWATCHMAN@YAHOO.COM; J. A. Wyatt, Jr., Kosciusko, MS H.S.Class of ’61; Mississippi State University Class of 1961

    STILL BEING A ‘COUNTRY BOY’ BORN AND ‘RAISED’ IN THE BIBLE BELT OF THE DEEP SOUTH WHO GREW UP WITH THE BOY SCOUT MOTTO ADMONISHMENTS OF ‘BE PREPARED’ . . . . ALONG WITH ”ASSUMPTION OF THE RISK RESULTS IN THE POTENTIAL OF REAPING A DISASTROUS AND POTENTIAL FATAL RESULTS’, DANGER HAS NOT BEEN SUFFERED . . . SO FAR. . . . BUT ONE OR TWO SIDEARMS ARE WORN AS CONSTANT COMPANIONS AS IS THE CASE WITH A MULTITUDE OF US OLD FOLKS. WHO OTHERWISE WOULD BE TOTALLY DEFENSELESS AGAINST THESE DEMONCRAT SPONSORED ASSAULTS.

    AND FULLY AWARD THAT THERE ARE MORE THAN A FEW INSTANCES ANIMALS BECOMING RABID AND CONSEQUENTLY HAVE TO BE DESTROYED, SIMILAR SOLUTIONS MIGHT WELL BE JUSTIFIED WHEN DEALING WITH THE EVIL RABID HUMAN GANGS OF RIOTERS!!!
