But you still can't vote in Puerto Rico and with that attitude you never will!

But it's OK if you have to start paying Federal Income Taxes.

Puerto Ricans living in PR vote for their own Governor, House and Senate but cannot vote in the Presidential Election, unless they establish residence in one of the 50 States and if living in PR they do not pay any federal taxes...not a single red cent...

"A common misconception is that residents of Puerto Rico do not have to pay federal taxes. Residents of the island pay federal taxes (import/export taxes, federal commodity taxes, social security taxes, etc.) and some even pay federal income taxes (Puerto Rico residents who are federal employees, or who do business with the federal government, Puerto Rico-based corporations that intend to send funds to the U.S., etc). While most residents of the island do not pay federal income tax, they do pay federal payroll taxes (Social Security and Medicare), as well as Puerto Rico income taxes. In addition, because the cutoff point for income taxation is lower than that of the IRS code, and because the per-capita income in Puerto Rico is much lower than the average per-capita income on the mainland, more Puerto Rico residents pay income taxes to the local taxation authority than if the IRS code were applied to the island. Puerto Rico residents are eligible for Social Security benefits upon retirement. Puerto Rico is excluded from Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Puerto Rico receives less than 15% of the Medicaid funding it would be allotted as a state."

Hispanics new majority sentenced to federal prison

By GARANCE BURKE - Associated Press | AP

SAN FRANCISCO (AP)- More than half of all people sent to federal prison for
committing felony crimes so far this year were Hispanic, a major demographic
shift swollen by immigration offenses, according to a new government report
released Tuesday.

Hispanics already outnumber all other ethnic groups sentenced to serve time
in prison for federal felonies.

Hispanics reached a new milestone for the first time this year, making up
the majority all federal felony offenders sentenced in the first nine months
of fiscal year 2011, according to the U.S. Sentencing Commission.

Hispanics comprised 50.3 percent of all people sentenced in that time
period, blacks 19.7 percent and whites 26.4 percent.

In comparison, last year Hispanics made up just 16 percent of the whole U.S.
population.

WSB: Despite the freezing temperatures, hundreds fought for a place in line
in Marietta, Georgia to apply for federal aid to help pay their heat and
power bills this winter.

Only 30 people were being let in at a time at the assistance center in
Marietta.

"It was freezing," applicant Linda Benefield told WSB-TV. "I was in line for
three hours and 15 minutes, but I needed the help."
