Why so sensitive, especially now?
If someone does not respect my mandate (and the democratic will of the majority is robbed from me) of course I am sensitive (especially now, since Nov. 6 2012- when I, along with 54% of the island's US citizens voted against the status quo).

This is not difficult to understand.

Because it is a US problem (Puerto Rico's point of view is that we don't participate in the US' decision making process regarding the national economy).
Is this a secret that you are privy to?

The whole world will discover that we rebelled against the US' imposed colony (up to Nov. 6th 2012, and citing the US words in the United Nations, "...it was a domestic issue...").

"Rebelled" is quite an exaggeration. The "powers that be" in Washington will be analyzing the nonbinding referendum results and will draw conclusions. Until then, the Puerto Rican debate has started and is heating up. I suspect Washington will conclude that "those Puerto Ricans don't know what they want". The best you can hope for is that the U.S. government will draw up its own referendum with just one question and only 2 choices: Statehood or independence.

Agreed. That is the best case scenario.

Posted like a true colonized.

Still, if what you just posted were to happen-it will be the result of us, insisting on holding our own island plebiscites (since 1967) without any PERMISSION from Congress.

Until then, us anticolonists (in the US and here) will fight that a "domestic issue" is denounced as "colonial abuse of power".

'Til then, you can keep your best wishes of "hope" while we, in islanders insist on evolving as true American citizens.

What is difficult to understand is why you are taking your frustration out on me? Where did you get the cockamamie idea that I do not respect your "mandate"? You have lost it.

To be colonized makes you a victim of imperialism.

You didn't invent colonization. Don't be so "gung ho" about it.

You find it ("a continued squabble about the status for years to come") wrong!

Con aproximadamente 1,700 empleados en Puerto Rico, Eli Lilly produce en la isla medicamentos, como Cymbalta y Zyprexa.
Sin embrargo, la compañía que tiene plantas de manufactura en Carolina, Guayama y Mayagüez, no ha confirmado, ni rechazado la información.

And how many other plant closings are associated with lilly? quite a few including United kingdom, as well as Indiana. This is not a PR issue its a corporate issue .
