During war, battle plan are prepared. After the battle begins and things are not going as expected, the plan is thrown away. A new plan formulated. One outside the box.
Trump is not creating any new methods for helping Puerto Rico. He tells us the food and water are there. It is up to the people to distribute it.
Passing the buck.
Trump fails to take into account that over 100 bridges are down and many roads washed away.
Think outside the box!
Helicopters! Load the helicopters with food and water and fly all over Puerto Rico bringing food and water to those who have seen neither in almost a month.
My sense is the same was suggested to Trump and rejected by him. Why trump has a hard on for Puerto Rico, I cannot understand.
I discovered in the past 48 hours that armed masked mercenaries, wearing battle gear, and carrying arms, are patrolling streets in San Juan and elsewhere. No tags identifying who they are. When asked, they respond…..We work with the government. It’s a humanitarian mission, we’re helping Puerto Rico.
Who are these mercenaries? Where do they come from? Who is paying them?
TV thus far has been silent as to the situation. In the past two days, articles have begun appearing on the internet re the mercenaries.
Little by little, the truth is leaking out. It appears mercenary groups have been invited by the United States to bid to provide armed and unarmed security. Bids have also been asked for help in protecting food and water supplies.
Five bids requested so far. The one for armed and unarmed security by the Department of Homeland Security.
Questions. Assuming the previous correct, why has the Trump Administration not announced it? Why have TV news outlets failed to mentioned it? Why the big secret?
More importantly, if the U.S. can spend money to hire mercenaries to help, why not send the U.S. military instead? The way things normally are done.
Another thing, why the masks and no identification?
Is Puerto Rico being set up for the overthrow of its existing government by the U.S.? United States’ citizens overthrown by the United States?
None of this makes sense to me.

I had not planned going out last night. Changed my mind at the last minute. Was lathered up ready to shave when the lights went out. So much for shaving. Showered and dressed in the dark.
My neighbors were in the street abuzz about the power failure. Some said all the way up to Big Pine. Others, Big Coppitt.
Aqua my first stop. Missed Liz. She and Stacy had left for dinner. Sat and enjoyed Ric Dery singing.
No Dueling Bartenders. Tom Luna was somewhere in West Virginia or Virginia attending a 40 year reunion of the cast of a professional show performed 40 years ago.
Lovely Jean Thornton at the bar. A couple of hugs and kisses.
I sat next to David. We decided after a while to leave and go to the Chart Room. The Chart Room was surprisingly packed.
Met a family from New Hampshire. Five in all. Staying at Truman Annex.
Chatted quite a while with CJ, the youngest family member at 24. CJ good company. Excited about life. A history major in college. Looking forward to obtaining a Masters.
A full day. I was home in bed by 10.
Publisher believes Irma and Me will be available for purchase by the end of the week.
Enjoy your day!
