Didn't Puerto Rico .....

..... vote to become a State for the first time here recently? Could THAT be the "reason" our chump in chief and his acolytes have wasted time sending help? For the slamming of them on Fox and other right wing "news" sites? They vote pretty heavily democratic, correct? After this fiasco of letting them suffer and die while calling them lazy and/or whiners I doubt they are looking at "us" in the same way. Guess what I'm trying to say is........ is the (non)response to Maria a calculated thing? To keep another blue State from coming into being?

I've exhausted every RATIONAL idea I can come up with, could this be true?

1. The destruction presents opportunity for 45 and rich buddies

to acquire prime Puerto Rico land at rock-bottom prices, then manipulate the government to bear the costs of reconstruction. The population that cannot escape the island will become their perpetual debt slaves. It's a model of the plan of the 1% for the rest of us.
