  1. When I spoke about gentrification a few months back, people told me to shut up. Now mainlanders are arriving to steal your land for pennies. They are moving on you like flies to s—. You must stand up for your rights or you will be forced to live somewhere in a ghetto on the mainland. That’s what happened to Puerto Rico. Over 500,000 people have left PR in the last two years. Why? Because they were forced out. The wealthy from the states USA have bought or are buying all of the beachfront property and putting up NO TRESPASSING signs. The islands are next. I also told you that law enforcement would be on every street. You laughed at me, while I was only trying to make you aware. Then you kicked me off the website. So, here we are. Stand your ground and do not sell your property.

  2. This is the time to stick together and not steal from one another. Do everything you can to help your neighbors. If you see anyone looting, go to the federal authorities and report them. I heard looting was taking place on a massive scale. Don’t let this happen. Why arn’t the cruise ships there loaded with food and supplies? On a normal day, there are at least six big ships in the harbor. I’ve seen them. Now when you need them, they are nowhere to be found. Let’s demand action from Congress. You brave people of the Virgin Islands have got to stand your ground. Same thing happened in Hawaii back in the ninties. Wealthy’s moved in and took the land. Now there are more native Hawaiians living in Southern California and Arizona then on the islands themselves. Don’t let this happen to you. How are the “GATED COMMUNITIES” making out? Peterborg? Let me know whats happening and if I can contact anyone for you. I want to help if I can. God Bless ALL of you.
