    Protect themselves from the ignorant crap Marc Anthony received in the Social Media after singing the National Anthem and being called a "dirty Mexican".

    Well, since I have been here in the USA mainland all my life moving to Puerto Rico would feel like moving to a foreign country. The times I visited the island I always felt somehow out of place. So I would most likely finish my days here in the USA. Not saying I like it here. Only saying that culturally I would have too difficult a time adjusting.
    My three kids would have even a harder time than me since they are not fully bilingual as I am. But I'm sure that hundreds of thousands of other Puerto Ricans now living in the USA might choose to move there if moving there after independence is attained offers them some type of advantage. What I find hard to conceptualize is the motivation. Cubans are facing a regime they find distasteful. So they are under forced exile. We in contrast are not. So assuming that Puerto Rico remains a democracy, what incentives would there be to make that decision?

    Well I'm going back to school, but this time in PR and become a teacher like you but I'm going to teach Brooklynese. lol. I'll contribute to society by stimulating the economy with my little buying power and make my little casita de madera so beautuful the Ferreteria will love me. Then I'm going to vote for someone who will make sure every damn criminal is off the streets so it's safe to walk again. Make sure those who are a menace to society are really reformed with actual reform programs (second chance) that work not just in trade but in social conditioning building up their self esteem so when they come out hopefully they become productive or at least no longer a menace.

    I agree

    I'd like to see the island run more efficiently regardless of the status. That won't happen because it is easier to roil up passions with the status than to offer solutions to real problems that while not as falshy, are more important in the daily life of people...

    Just like you charlie, my life will be just as good as it is now. Even if the island becomes any other thing it will not be a difference for me. I still have to work the next day and the next after that and the next.

    Just because there is a status change will not change the lives of those of us living abroad.

    I just don't think any changes will be coming soon.

    I'm trying to play by the rules imposed here and still make a point. If you come to KC, you've got to try Blanc Burgers and Bottles in Westport... Voted Best burgers in the US.

    The truth is that I've made where I rest my hat, my home. Always have. If PR became a State tomorrow, I'd be happy for them, but in the greater scheme of things, it would not affect my life in any significant manner. Now, if I were a rabid nationalist narcicist who tries to pass itself as a mild mannered egalitarian, I'd probably start blocking off whole afternoons at the nearest shrink to deal with the disapointment , frustration and ire such an event would represent,

    This is just an example of how many bans can be given out in this forum. There is not much productivity here.

    That would not be my first choice on what I'd do, since I'm a pacifist at heart, but maybe going to Blanc Burgers...

    In reply to the "Puss" in Puss'n Boots

    I would continue my life as if nothing momentuous had happened. Statehood by itself will not solve all of the problems of the island. It only increases the chance for success should the individduals involved in making Macondo such a mess were to ant to set their lives straightened out.

    BTW Yujike: I didn't know you had it in you to get like that... That had all the wit of a croquet mallet... Maybe it's all tht teacher's pet syndrome that kept you from getting nailed by the mods...

    [SIZE="4"]Thank, you very much Benedict Arnold
    I was the first who saw through this guy Another Rican and confronted him squarely about his racism and his attacks on women, I was not afraid of him and the language was the right one at the time when I was dealing with this troll! These are actually mild expletives compared with the stuff that he deserved to be called. Let me tell you that culture had nothing to do with this/SIZE]
