Has anyone discussed the recent comments from that commie mayor? Stating that Trump has caused or supports a genocide of the PR people through his response to Maria.

If I were the Gov down there... I'd remove her for cause. She does absolutely nobody any good just making t-shirts and trying to arouse hatred.

Most of those islands are super corrupt, terrible politicians.

Finally, shove your stupid talking point nonsense. It's such a weak and tired old deflection for anything someone says that you guys don't happen to like.

It's not a weak deflection. It's an accurate statement of fact. You don't have a clue WTF you are talking about.
They didn't wait too,ing because of brown people or a golf tournament. I don't think they waited at all. There was a hurricane in the Atlantic between PR and Norfolk for most of the intervening period. Not prudent to sail into the middle of that. Plus, ships had to be staffed and loaded for the mission before leaving.
Let's look at that post #239.

And further on this...now that it's there...with the capability to treat like 800 patients, it was reported yesterday that only 8 patients were being seen. Unacceptable.

Check out the storm track, here for one place:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Maria

Sine it never got into the Gulf, you I guess you would never have sent the ship, which was inport Norfolk/Newport News area. Maria tracked north and threatened the Outer Banks of NC on the 27th, so it would have made little sense to send it before then. The ship had fewer than 100 people onboard and had to staff up to 800 for the trip, plus supplies and fuel had to be loaded. It sailed on the 29th, arriving about Oct 3. All in all, it would have been fairly unreasonable to expect it to go before it did.

How many relief efforts have you ever taken part in or planned? I'm guessing zero.

My bad...I was remembering Irma on the storm path.

And you're right...let's stop all discussion of anything on this board if you haven't directly participated in it.

No more comments on congress, the presidency. This place should be fun. 03-drunk

Comments are fine regarding things where you know enough to have an informed opinion. You've clearly demonstrated that you don't with regard to the instant subject.

Want to disprove that? The answer the questions I've been asking.

You say the response has been bad. OK, what would a good response have been? And sailing a partially-crewed hospital ship into the face of an oncoming hurricane would not have been a good plan.

Exactly WTF should have been done that wasn't? And when and how? And with what resources?

My favorite part of this is we all know damn well that he can't answer this question. It's all about getting hysterical for anything and everything hoping something sticks. Nevermind the facts.
