If you wish to read the posts written by Tiella maybe you could bring a clearer light into the forum...because I am also not sure what Tiella meant...she does have opinion although I really don't understand at times what she means...it is praise for Obama or is it mockery.<quoted text>
Sorry I do not understand your point. Can you expand or be a little more specific. Thanks
A few weeks back, Jon Stewart took non-presidential candidate Donald Trump to task for his fussy pizza-eating methods ; Wednesday night, it was President Obama whose street cred Stewart called into question.

¿Qué tal andas? It's been a while. I was hoping to strike a good thread in this forum and chat for a while; but frankly, I'm reconsidering the idea.

I have those numbers and more, I live in PR half a year at a clip.
According to PR Daily Sun paper, the dropout rate for all schools in PR is over 40%. No language barrier there.. ALL Spanish.... PR papers didnt print the graduation rates in PR schools but Im assuming that its low also. Especially if PR reflects the Ricans/Hispanic Grad rates in the States.
The national graduation rate for the public school class of 2000 was 69%. The rate for white students was 76%; for Asian students it was 79%; for African-American students it was 55%; for Hispanic students it was 53%; and for Native Americans it was 57%.
Floridas public schools had the lowest overall graduation rate in the nation with 55% of students graduating, followed by Georgia, the District of Columbia, and Arizona.
Just one-in-ten Hispanic high school drop-outs has a General Educational Development. Hispanics have a much higher high school drop-out rate than do blacks or whites. Some 41% of Hispanic adults age 20 and older in the United States do not have a regular high school diploma, compared with 23% of black adults and 14% of white adults. The report also examines the labor force outcomes (including employment rates and median earnings) of Hispanic high school dropouts, GED recipients and high school graduates.
In 2,000 Hispanics are 11 percent of the population, they now account for 22 percent of welfare recipients. That's nearly double the level a decade ago. In areas with a heavy concentration of Hispanics, the numbers are much higher: In New York City, for example, Latinas outnumber white welfare mothers almost twelve to one.
PR schools also have a serious Gun problem
Puerto Rican government found 28 percent of the island's 10th-12th grade students took a firearm to school at least once during the past year.
I agree but PR schools are too stupid and arrogant to teach enough English.
Yes Im sure that plays into the changes but if you look at the history of Ricans in NY that have been there for close to 50 years and 3 or more generations later the numbers arent good there either, There is NO language Barrier problem in PR schools to reflect PR Mass flunking.

Puerto Ricans in New York Face Persistent Struggles
Friday, November 20, 2009
New York, NY
Puerto Rican leaders have made lots of news this year from Sonia Sotomayors rise to the Supreme Court, to the so-called three amigos who took power in the New York legislature.
While New Yorks most visible Latino leaders are Puerto Rican some researchers are trying to call attention to a less visible reality: that almost a third of Puerto Ricans are living below the poverty line, compared to less than a fifth of all New Yorkers. And in educational and professional achievement, New Yorks Puerto Ricans are doing worse than Latinos as a whole. WNYCs Marianne McCune reports.
REPORTER: Puerto Ricans are among the poorest New Yorkers. Their rate of unemployment is higher than for Latinos as a whole. They own fewer homes and fewer go to college..

Sorry for the double post. A glitch in connections
#28 Jun 18, 2011
I thought so, but I can "swing" and miss once in a while.
Anyhow I'm your go to guy for Facts on PR and the states in many areas such as crime, budgets, medium incomes and can also tell you what Demographic population changes in every single county in the US including Hawaii in the last decade. Give me a street or block in a US area and I can tell you just about anything in that area.
So if you have any Future questions on Facts I'm that go to guy..
I'm a numbers guy which many get mad at but hay its
Hears something I bet you never heard of Ricans in Hawaii...
Early 1900s 5,000 Puerto Ricans went straight from PR to Hawaii there is now approx 30,000 Puerto Ricans in Hawaii.
Since you dont live in PR heres some current news.
PR government collects approx 9.2 Billion on in Island Revenue Taxes. After that the States sends down annually 18 Billion to add to that 9.2 Billion. Fact is PR is the richest place in the US borders per captia in pop of approx 3.8 million citizens with a total budget of 27.5 billion. The state thats comparable to PR Budget is Pennsylvania which has a Fiscal Budget of 28 Billion for 12.6 Million pop..
PR budget 27.5 Billion pop 3.8 million
PA budget 28 billion pop 12,5 million
Whats wrong with that picture!!???
Pr also has a record for the Physcially challenged VS populationo.
P.R. has alarming jobless rate among physically challenged
Some 900,000 physically challenged people on the island are unemployed, so the government must assume the costs of that population, a hearing at the House revealed Tuesday.
Rep. José Chico Vega, who chairs the House Economic Development, Planning, Commerce, Industry and Telecommunications Committee, said at present, Puerto Ricos physically challenged population is experiencing a 75 percent unemployment rate.
Island budget breakdown
Forty of the islands 78 municipalities are operating with budget deficits. The municipality with the largest operational deficit is Toa Baja which has a cash shortage of around $22.7 million. Ponce operates with a deficit of $22.2 million.
San Juan, which operates the largest budget in Puerto Rico almost $900 million has a deficit of $18.4 million.
Another NPP bastion, Arecibo, is also in the red, with a shortage of funds that hovers around $11.7 million, as is Manatí which sports a deficit of $12.8 million.
Tiny Vieques has run a debt of $11.4 million so far and according to projections, the island municipality could be as much as $15 million in debt by the end of fiscal 2012.
On the other side of the spectrum are those municipalities that carry huge operational surpluses
The biggest surplus belongs to a PDP-held town, Carolina, which has almost $48.9 million in cash reserves. Another PDP controlled municipality follows, Isabela, which has an operational surplus of $17 million.
Mayagüez, under the leadership of PDP mayor Guillermo Rodríguez has a surplus of $11.5 million despite hosting such money-bleeding events as the 2010 Central American and Caribbean Games.
Leading the list of NPP towns with surpluses are Fajardo with $14.5 million, Aguadilla with $11.7, Bayamón with $7 million and Guaynabo with $6.8 million.

About Hawaii..I knew due to the fact that my Aunt Susie lived for many years in Hawaii because George, her hubby was in the service...
Now, are you taking into account that approximately half of PR's population are NON Puerto Ricans but residents from other latin American country?
#31 Jun 19, 2011
Yep took that into account on the brake down which is hard at times.
The "back door research" on that is one can also plug in approx birth rates and death rates starting with the 5,000 Puerto Ricans in the very early 1900s
Don't have time now But I do have more info in Ricans in Hawaii which is a very tight knit group..
What unique about them is they don't associate with PR per say. Obviously its a hell of a long way away..
Th other thing in Hawaii is they also have Illegals (Mexicans) in Hawaii.
#32 Jun 20, 2011
I would like to see the number of illegal Mexicans in Hawaii. Should be intresting.
It must be somewhat controlled due to distance.
#33 Jun 20, 2011
Hi TPMP Im trying to get a handle on that. They way that started in the first place is when Hawaii went through its building boom Builders Boated in illegals for Construction. Same problem now even on the east coast..
I was researching 2010 Pop Demographics changes and ran into to the illegals in Hawaii.
I was thinking like you what a hell of a distance. Well the way the illegals gets a return trip to Mexico is they get porously get caught and US GOV gives them a free ride back. Then they hook up again and get a ride back or come though Calf again to Hawaii. Hard to believe huh. This illegal situation has been killing the US job market for decades...
Pro illegals argue whos going to work those jobs they do. Well I have NEWS fro them. In my day and age a High school kid would take on those Menial jobs for any kind of work and use that as an important stepping stone to start a working period.
This is the BS the pro libs say about illegals
("People think that these workers are taking jobs from our locals. But it's not easy to find ag labor. No one wants to work out in the sun for eight hours a day, for $8 to $12 an hour."Dean Okimoto")
CONSTRUCTION UNEMPLOYMENT RATE HITS 27.1 PERCENT AS ANOTHER 64,000 CONSTRUCTION WORKERS LOST JOBS IN FEBRUARY 2010
Latest US Bureau of Labor Statistics in Jan of 09 shows nearly 39,000 unemployed in Hawaii.
Obama wont tell you construction workers unemployment is very heavy double digits unemployment.. Illegals have effected the upper east coast. I know some Drywall companies in Business for over 20 years went belly up a few years ago because of illegals..
I keep telling everybody the illegals severely HURT the pay scale in
Just the tip of the iceberg
Calf. this was in 2,004
State's "cheap labor" costs average household $1,183 a year Among the key finding of the report are that the state's already struggling K-12 education system spends approximately $7.7 billion a year to school the children of illegal aliens who now constitute 15 percent of the student body. Another $1.4 billion of the taxpayers' money goes toward providing health care to illegal aliens and their families, the same amount that is spent incarcerating illegal aliens criminals.
Nineteen ninety-four was the same year that California voters rebelled and overwhelmingly passed Proposition 187, which sought to limit liability for mass illegal immigration. Since then, state and local governments have blatantly ignored the wishes of the voters and continued to shell out publicly financed benefits on illegal aliens," said Stein. "Predictably, the costs of illegal immigration have grown geometrically, while the state has spiraled into a fiscal crisis that has brought it near bankruptcy.
"Nothing could more starkly illustrate the very high costs of cheap labor' than California's current situation," continued Stein. "A small number of powerful interests in the state reap the benefits, while the average native-born family in California gets handed a nearly $1,200 a year bill."
TPMP wanna jump start the Economy GET RID OF ILLEGAS. I estimate that illegals make up 8% of the total population in the US.
But NO the libs KEEP the border open to they can get Lib Gov Assist anchor babies.
Society cost and crime, damage from the illegals is like a slow Atomic bomb constantly going off in the US..
