    Are they going to make people suffer again by hiding relief supplies in warehouses while the fat cat ungodless people who govern that country hoard it for themselves and their families? Can't blame it on Trump. They're going to need a new excuse.

    If it took months before, with a less powerful hurricane Maria, to restore power how can anyone expect that power will be returned in a few days?

    When hurricane Ida hit Louisiana I remember that I was talking to people who did not have power for months and left the state to stay in Texas during that time. And that was with trucks from power companies from dozens of other unaffected states, cities, and municipalities in the US coming into the area to assist with recovery efforts. To get to Puerto Rico with those vehicles they have to be transported there by boat – but where will the boats dock? AAnd if they dock, and they are offloaded despite the workers being unable to get to work, how will they get to where they are needed when it will take days for the floodwaters to subside, and when bridges to get to communities have been swept away?

    Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples:
    "The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat.
    So you must be careful to do everything they tell you.
    But do not do what they do,
    for they do not practice what they preach.

    They tie up heavy cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders,
    but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
    Everything they do is done for people to see:
    They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long;
    they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues;
    they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.

    But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. The greatest among you will be your servant.
    For those who exalt themselves will be humbled,
    and those who humble themselves will be exalted".

    YOU SHALL NOT MAKE FOR YOURSELF AN IMAGE in the form of anything, in Heaven above or in the Earth beneath, or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them, or worship them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents, up to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me, and keep my commandments.

    If my people who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sins, and will heal their land.

    AND WHEN YOU PRAY DO NOT BE LIKE THE HYPOCRITES, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners, to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.
    BUT WHEN YOU PRAY, GO INTO YOUR ROOM, close the door, and pray to your Father who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
    And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need, before you ask him.

    This, then, is how you should pray:

    Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us today our daily bread.
    And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from the evil one.

    For if you forgive other people when they sin against you,
    your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
    But if you do not forgive others their sins,
    your Father will not forgive your sins.

    "Matthew 5-7 NIV Bible Gateway", we can use google search.
    These are the teachings,
    The Righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ our God.
    REPENT, and start doing what is right.
    If you abide my teachings, you are really my disciples;
    then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

    Yet a time is coming and has now come
    when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in Truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.
    GOD IS SPIRIT, so his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in Truth.

    In the New Heaven and the New Earth,
    only Righteousness dwells.
    May the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ our God be with you all.

    It’s not just the power it’s also the infrastructure you guys don’t understand that being a colony is not all that it’s cracked up to be and it’s not fair especially when a lot of Puerto Rican lives have died in foreign wars for America we shouldn’t be treated this way it’s un-American and the infrastructure for homes for the most part is done right what isn’t done right is the infrastructure that the state and federal government is supposed to provide

    Personally, I feel Washington D.C. & the 5 Island Territories (Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, & American Samoa) should be granted full statehood already. Being an American living in these 6 Territories is today's version of "No taxation without representation," since the people there are guaranteed citizenship at birth, pay taxes using U.S. currency, serve in the U.S. military, & can vote in the Primaires, but they can't vote for President (except for D.C.) nor do they have Congressmen that can vote on legislation. Plus, with statehood, the number of Representatives in Congress stays the same, its just there would now be 112 Senators & 423 in the House, with 12 Senators & about 9 members of the House representing these 6 new states.
