Sure. That will be the final solution. Since the Congress do not want us, we should return to our original mother for nurture.

Sure. Watching Spanish television, without any commercials, tv soaps, national, international news, documentaries, sit coms, one is surprised as the amount of idiomatic expressions, jargon, sayings, that are used in Puerto Rico and still part of the dayly life in the Peninsula.

Even more surprising, when all through out our college education some Spanish purists, were frightened of the influence of USA culture on all fronts.

Reality bites, Puertoricans have rejected internally the USA influence refusing in some ways to asimilate the English language except in some sectors of the economy where there is no alternative. Spanish continue to be the tool used to communicate our personal self, while English is the merchants way of dealing.Long live our King!

Vote Yes for Spaing! No for the 51rst State, for the hell of it, Congress will say No.

Why would they want to? They get every benefit of being a US citizen yet don't have to pay taxes.

Well, there are some happy with the arrangement, and others who do not. To be in this situation and not having to pay taxes does not sit well in USA.

In Spain the food is better, television, there is a king, and 500 plus years of common culture,language,gastronomy,se nsibility vs 100
plus with a country historically tied with war for profits or because they can.

The other option let me kill the premise on your hand is to pay taxes, vote for a president? Did
I understand?

What? You mean PUERTO RICO was attached to Spain, and it broke off and floated to where it is now!!!???
That is amazing, is this some kind of Bermuda

It is not Congress’s right to decide, you and your people have to vote to make that decision to become a state then send it to the U.S. to be voted on. Your move first which time and time again your country have failed to do.

Taino indians? They were not worth a hogs fart. Talk to me about :Apaches,Sioux,Blackfoot,Navaj os,Anassasi and those who fought left some traces. Petrogliphs,seashells, bones,not mean much. Aguacates,maiz,hamacas,canoas, tomates that is something.

Please chech the part on your Constitution where is stated procedures to accept new union members. I imagine that my idea in jest, to return to Spain will be similar, the sovereign state votes to decide what is more profitable convenient.

Almost forgot, putting things in perspective, islandricans, have great sympathy toward the decimated tainos. Every 12 October we celebrate the much Maligned Discovery. Every juan dresses up to go to elementary school an celebrate our luck. Every child goes as a taino or Spaniard, no juan wants to go as a dark one. Even though they made some important gastronomical contributions. Platano frito, mofongo,alcapurria,pahteleh, to name a few.
Seriously now this aspect of our history is perhaps the most interesting since it brought a togetherness in our food taste in the New World.

Now forgive me. This is not a nice subject. Decimating is apparently a necessity. The Chinese decimated Tibetans, The Japanese similarly Chinese,Koreans,USA in Pearl Harbor.

The Turks, Armenians,Hutus,Tutsis,USA,Vie tnam,Russian,Chechens
is part of life. If we decide not to forgive the decimators where will the world go?

If Puerto Rico wants to return to Spanish Rule then let them. I believe Puerto Rico should be given their independence let them support themselves instead of the American Taxpayer. Other than Rum what has the people of Puerto Rice given to America. They have a huge population of welare recepents, they are not required to pay Federal Income Taxes, too many refuse to speak english, armed guards have to patrol beaches to insure tourist safety. So let them fend for themselves.

Thanks Ronnie for your support. Other than sugar cane, tobacco,coffee and pineapples not much. Now not even that. The molasses used to make rum are from Dominican Republic. You can tell all our fellow americans in PA, that Bacardi is ripping them off.

I imagine that the other information is first hand and not heard/watched in TV.

We do not need to speak English, since we communicate in Spanish. Do you refuse to speak Japanese? I accept a psychological handicap for some to speak it, but not to write/read. It is not a simple thing believe me. The other problem is the silly methodology of teaching. Long live to our future King, down with USA.

The Bulk of P.ricans is from arab blood, Moroccan arab blood. Ricky Martin looks arab 100%
Ask them in a referendum and be done for good.

Well since you an arab fan brought the issue, our Mother Country was under arab administration for 700 hundred years or so, no juan was with a calendar counting. I am glad to collaborate with human understanding, piss and love, sorry peace.

In brief some islandricans look like: arabs,pakis,oriental,utus,tuts is,busmen,irish,and a persecuted minority in the whole wild world:ugly/translucent/albinos .

Imagine, after islandricans decide to return to the maternal embrace. Walking through the narrow streets in Andalucia, Ole. Having a nice keg of cabernet, pinot, or merlot to wash down the morcillas, tapas,fabadas, valencianas/marineras. Que viva Espanha!
PETA members, do not be afraid, I will oppose bull fighting as an aberration, sorry. NO cruelty to animals.
Passport? Well, those who wish to remain USA citizens can request double citinzenship but will have to file tax returns with our original mother country.

I am serious about this, we should return to Spain. At least they speak our language, ours closely resembles the Canary Islanders'. After all we were once considered "forever loyal" and one of the last overseas provinces of Spain, for at least a year, the other was Cuba. We lasted approximately one year as a overseas province before the gringos invaded.

Right now the euro is worth more than the lousy dollar, there is universal health care, and with a Spanish passport, we can travel all over Europe. Besides, it is much more liberal than the U.S.

We can become the first Latin American country to join in the reconquest of the new world.

Who wants to start the movement, and will Spain be willing to take us back.

It certainly would be to their advantage, in terms of having a new foot in the Western Hemisphere.

You refer to people living on the island as, "islandricans." How long have you lived in NY?
