I knew all of that already.
I learned all of that simply by reading an article about it.
news.msn.com/politics/puerto-ricans-opt-for-statehood-in-referendum

Cool. Sourcefed and Phillip DeFranco are a great source of news; I can't tell you how many times I've seen their show and gone off and done my own research on the subject, especially when it comes to politics and dinosaurs.

They do a surprising amount of dinosaur stories.
User avatar #97 to #96 - totallynotafurry (11/09/2012) [-]
Cause dinosaurs are ******* awesome lol.

They REEEEEAAALLY seem like they're just forcing their jokes in that episode.
It's like "come on! Laugh at this! It's funny... right? Please laugh..."
User avatar #102 to #100 - kanatana (11/09/2012) [-]
Well, this is only about the fifteenth dinosaur and about the eighth Hobbit/LOTR video they've done. They really are quite good at what they do, though.
User avatar #105 to #102 - totallynotafurry (11/09/2012) [-]
Oh lordy. They should probably stop with it now lol.

Im from Puerto Rico and personally I don't think most of the people really know what would come of being a state. Moreover, the republican party, which is called PNP, didnt count an almost 1 million votes who voted against becoming a state, which would have turned into a "we dont want to become a state" . Politics here is really just a bunch of people trying to get their pockets full of the people's money
User avatar #194 to #192 - totallynotafurry (11/09/2012) [-]
So politics there is about the same as it is here then? :P

jajajaja, no estaría mal pero primero el pueblo debe saber que los "beneficios" no son gratis, ni que nos vamos a hacer estado de la noche a la mañana eso se tarda varios años
User avatar #250 to #92 - Lautart ONLINE (11/09/2012) [-]
I am from Puerto Rico and well I can tell you two things:
1. Not everyone wants to become a state. Hell, there are more people here that voted on not becoming a state. There are agreements and disagreements towards both options.
2. I find it funny how the majority of the citizens who want to become a state have neither been to the states or speak English. Sure they can try to do their investigation when it comes to that matter, but let's face it, some of them are filled with this fantasy that they states is all paradise and fabulous living... However, they are missing the fact that it's painted in pretty colors and they forget the cons to it like being forced to leave certain aspects that we withhold. I am not saying we become completely like the US (look at Hawaii).
User avatar #261 to #250 - totallynotafurry (11/09/2012) [-]
While it is true that not everyone wanted Puerto Rico to become a state, the majority voted for it (or at least that's how it seems). In a democracy, majority rules.
User avatar #268 to #261 - Lautart ONLINE (11/10/2012) [-]
Which is ironic considering that the candidates who won the majority of the elections are against becoming a state. Then again, politics here are a little messed up.

right here man.. nd has the best economy in the us. everyone talks **** about it when everyone here has money coming out of their asses. they had a 1.9 billion dollar surplus as well.. so yeah, you guys can make fun of nd all you want but the state as a whole, will just keep improving our economy and keep to ourselves while we have to listen to the ******** that happens everywhere else in the us

User avatar #174 to #61 - MythBuster (11/09/2012) [-]
that's fine.. crack as many jokes as you want.. in the county Williston, the average income is $71,000.. yes, 71,000 ******* dollars. fast food employees make 15 an hour STARTING. truck drivers are pulling in 100k so this economy is ******* insane, we weren't even affected by the us recession
User avatar #230 to #174 - meganinja (11/09/2012) [-]
k. Not trying to brag but Virginia has 3 counties where the AVERAGE income is over $100,000. Fairfax county was the first in the United States to pull it off
User avatar #329 to #230 - MythBuster (11/10/2012) [-]
plus, you looked at household income. my fact was $71,000 per person
User avatar #332 to #329 - meganinja (11/10/2012) [-]
huh, I was pretty sure it was $100,000 per person. Oh well. What does having more counties and less land have to do with anything? those counties have plenty of people, Fairfax county alone holds about 15% of Virginia's total population.
User avatar #328 to #230 - MythBuster (11/10/2012) [-]

I live up north by Yreka which would be the Capital of "Jefferson Sate" and i hear all the backwards idiots talk about how Northern Cali. Should split, but they dont understand that California needs to be a whole in order to survive.   
Also we would probably be the poorest state, seeing how our only exports would be Lumber, Cattle, and the occasional sheep.
