this is all good to know for when Puerto Rico wants debt forgiveness.

Those responses to your remarks are more than enough to give you an idea of how much you ignore. It will take you virtually a lifetime you get minimally acquainted with the complexities of this U.S.-Puerto Rico “relationship” thing. So, try a leap of faith and believe me when I tell you that you are on the wrong here. But it’s ok. You share that obliviousness with 99.9 percent of your fellow Americans. Plus, it’s a human thing to be a bullying empire (is there another kind?) and to pretend to be loved too. What Puerto Ricans need to do, as I just wrote in response to the article you pretended to belittle, is to reconcile ourselves with our essence: We are a nation originated in a tiny Caribbean island. We will never be powerful; but that spares us the burden and shame of being bullies. Peace.
