    Mr. Pragmatist,

    LOL, like someone who goes swimming afterwards to cool off and gets et by a shark...Storm related? Or a dude climbing a coconut tree to get a nut and falls on his head...storm related?

    What part of this as you are typing away because you have ELECTRIC or cellphone service is not SINKING IN?
    Obviously you look at the before and after.

    Dah!!!

    20 days in only half of the hospitals have electric. Many are on limited generators still. Autopsies will NOT be their priority. So likely, bodies are stacking up.

    But it's also a tale of two cities.

    If you have money you're doing ok right now in Puerto Rico - but the poor are still suffering a great deal.

    Nothing highlights social inequalities like disaster.
    Always.

    The rich will reside in Florida hotels until their property is made habitable again.
    Yep, SCOTT and the state LEG are probably going to start freaking out. That's a lot of internal pressure on the state, depending on how many and for how long.

    By the way: flame baiting is a post written with the intent to offend\anger\enrage other persons, so that they will send a flaming post in return.

    And if calling someone full of shit is not a flame bait then I don't know what the hell is.
    I call it the truth.

    what does that have to do with it? Just because I call assholes assholes doesn't mean I post bullshit which is what all of your posts are.
