If you watch news constantly you probably know there is a Hurricane near Puerto Rico, the Hurricane is category 4 which is a very dangerous one. Luckily for us the hurricane just miss land for just a few. I mean we will get some rain and some winds around 50 – 60 MPH but no big deal. Right now the storm is passing by and there isn’t much rain at all, maybe later it will start to get worse. There is some breeze but nothing dangerous or out of ordinary. Puerto Rico doesn’t get a mayor hurricane since 1998 when hurricane Georges stroked the island and caused lot of damage. I like storm and all that stuff for some reason, they can be nice but been inside a big category hurricane like back in 1998 is not so nice. The sound of the wind is so scary, is something scary to live.

Today At University classes got suspended at 12:00 PM and probably tomorrow there is no class either so ill be around here. Electricity hasn’t gone for now thanks god neither the internet lol but well ill keep around until a blackout comes or I fall asleep. The night is very good to sleep and cold, rainy, windy. It would be so awesome to have someone to sleep with but sadly I am alone :(, boooo sucks. Such is life hahaha.

Well talk to you later if we continue to live pass all this events, haha well maybe is not that bad. Bye!

Today was a weird day and sad in a way. First of all a waterspout (trompa marina in spanish) in case you don’t know is a Tornado but it forms in the ocean, in case the waterspout go into land it is then a tornado. Don’t be alarm, it wasn’t a strong tornado that passed by Puerto Rico but it was weird definitely, sadly the inauguration of the Mayaguez Central American and Caribbean games was due to start today but the climate didn’t allow the celebration to took place, well get to that later now I am going to tell my experience. I went to get a haircut in the house of the barber with my friend, he work in his home, around 12 PM. He started with me first to do his job, while I was getting the haircut my friend said: “What is the forecast for today? the sky is weird, it was sunny then now is all black and cloudy” everyone there answered like yea is true, nothing is in the forecast for today that I know. Then the wind started to blow and rain to fall, there was a blackout and my haircut stayed incomplete, yea I didn’t looked nice :|. So we enter his home to hide from the wind and rain, the wind was probably around 30 MPH but all happen suddenly we were in shock, I even received a call from my friend Jomarie asking me what was going on, because she was on the road driving and all that started to happen. After the wind and rain pass, we had to go to another barber so he finish my haircut because electricity never came in the previous barber home. The wind was very strong, we all were like what the fuck is going on. Later we find out it was a waterspout that hit land and caused some damage.

video when the lights and all that stuff felt because the winds in the new Mayaguez stadium.

The sad part was that Mayaguez got the worse part, the central american and caribbean games are going to be celebrated there and today was the inauguration event. Sadly it was cancelled because all the lights, kiosk, stage went flying and was seriously damage. The event was postponed for tomorrow but the games schedule wasn’t affected thankfully, all goes according to schedule except the inauguration event that is due tomorrow. It was just a scary moment, nothing serious. There was a few people injured but no one die. The hurricane season starts soon, Puerto Rico is in the way of Hurricanes, luckily we don’t get a direct and strong impact since 1998. God is sending warnings, we should prepare because worse things will happen sooner or later.

I haven’t post in the last few days, I had many stuff to talk about like the world cup games which been very amazing but I didn’t, I don’t think no one is reading this any ways so I am just wasting my time, probably. Today I felt the need to post, the need to express myself about the recent events that took place here, in Puerto Rico.

First of all let me give you a little history lesson in case you don’t know much about Puerto Rico and it’s current status. On July 25, 1898, during the Spanish-American War, Puerto Rico was invaded by the United States. As an outcome of the war, Spain ceded Puerto Rico, along with Cuba, the Philippines, and Guam to the U.S. under the Treaty of Paris. Therefore Puerto Ricans are American citizens, the first and most important constitution is the United States one but Puerto Rico have it’s own. Things been happening since this current administration (government) took place two years ago, lot of people getting fired from there jobs, rising in taxes among many other things, so the ambience around if one of discomfort towards the government. The current administration party is the PNP (Partido Nuevo Progresista) they advocate for been United States 51 state (LOL). There have been protest in Puerto Rico in the last few months, at the university because the cost of studying was rising. I didn’t agree because I think that this are difficult times and everyone have to adjust to global cost which are increasing and the public university is cheap already but this time is not about that, is about the constitution.

The problem started a week or so ago when the president of the senate Thomas Rivera Schatz give an order to not allow neither press nor citizens into the capitol to see the legislation they made. This is a constitutional right, you can enter and see the legislators making laws in the balcony on the second floor and even worse not allowing the press either. What are they hiding? This right is protected under United States constitution and Puerto Rico, also this is a public building, property of the people of Puerto Rico. So today a few people tried to enter the capitol to watch the laws and legislation been pass since is the most important day, the shock force was waiting inside the capitol hidden for some reason, everything was planned out since the beginning, when the persons asked authorization to enter it was denied and the press that tried to access the capitol also was denied, the rest as they say is history. The police came out of there hiding and started beating women’s mostly and old people, even reporters. The group of protesters were minimum, an hour or two later people started to come when they found out about what was going on, so they prepare to make a peaceful protest. Suddenly more police came with the most advance riot gear I have seen (and they say they don’t have money lol) and started beating everyone, not allowing anyone to protest which is such and important constitutional right in a democracy. The police was sadistic, you could see in there face there wrath and anger to do some damage.The police followed protesters all over the capital according to news channels, running after them. The capital is a tourist spot and news say even tourist got beat up by the police.

I hope this doesn’t stop here, and today when the sun rise there are even more protest. We need to stop this politicians to doing whatever the fuck they want, and worse violating important constitutional rights protected in both PR and US constitution, the one they love and want to be part of. The Puerto Rican governor hasn’t even appear to talk on the matter on TV, he’s been disappear the last two weeks. This motherfucker Thomas Rivera Schatz, the president of the senate is behind the power, the governor is his bitch. Schatz even look like fucking Hitler, same moustache and all. Thanks to all the men’s and women’s that so protected, and will keep on doing so, the constitution of this blessed island Puerto Rico. I will leave all of you with this quote:

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. – U.S Declaration of Independence
