Default Puerto Rico fuckery deserves its own thrad

It's obviously not going away, and it's larger than just the president*.

Ken Klippenstein has gotten hold of Whitefish Energy's contract and it's repulsive. Click through to the tweet for more. This is present-day colonialism. There's no other word for it.

I remain convinced that statehood is the only adequate solution. At the same time I think I'm going to be pleased when Puerto Ricans (hopefully) start moving to the mainland and changing its politics. It seems in some small way like karma, a thing we've had far too little of in these past few years.
