According to the US Federal Highway Administration, the roads of Puerto Rico are in worse physical condition than all 50 states, and they rank 45th in amount of traffic congestion.
This presents a difficult question. Since the commonwealth government is insolvent, with little or no money for road repair, then who will manage and maintain the roads of Puerto Rico?
Just this week, the Senate of Puerto Rico suddenly “discovered” a so-called “asphalt cartel,” which has been using sub-standard asphalt for many years, in road repairs throughout the island.
SOMETHING SHADY IN ALL THIS?
Obviously, an island with over 3 million vehicles and virtually no public transportation, must have its roads maintained.
But there is something too neat in all this…
The media all suddenly “report” a crumbling network of roads, and the Senate “discovers” an asphalt cartel…just one week after Gov. Garcia-Padilla “announces” a re-negotiated deal with Goldman Sachs and Abertis Inc., which netted them an additional $1.25 BILLION DOLLARS.
Some groundwork is clearly being laid, for swaying public opinion in Puerto Rico…and preparing everyone for a wave of “public private partnerships” which may take over the island’s highway system.
There is something shady about a coordinated media campaign, just before a new governor takes office, who has vopenly declared his support for “public private partnerships” throughout the island.
A NEW PROPAGANDA PROTOCOL?
Over the next few years, this may the propaganda protocol for Puerto Rico…
Declare a “crisis” in some aspect of its public infrastructure, just before Gov. Ricky Roselló issues the RFPs (Requests for Proposal) from private sector bidders.
It is a formula for privatization, private wealth, mass manipulation, and the legal sale…
Piece by piece…
Of Puerto Rico.
