  1. XD and the goverment of P.R want to push for joining the States because: more benefits in health care and…..you know their's no way joining now the states will help us, it make P.R look bad

  2. It's time for Ricky Martin, JLo and other PR celebrities to help their own country and their own people. For years they've been asking money for their own "charity" and popularity but they havent watched their own backyard which is slowly decaying falling into deeper crisis as each day passes.
