  1. Default Puerto Rico votes to become 51st state in U.S.


    I'm a bit surprised this isn't bigger news. Yeah, it still needs Congress approval, but it's never been denied before, and they have almost all the rights as a U.S. citizen.

    i meant american as "person who lives in america", not "person whose country is joining the US"

  9. Default Re: Puerto Rico votes to become 51st state in U.S.


    I'm confused. Peurto rico is becoming a state, said Rican is calling me stereotypical names for being american. He later becomes american which brings irony. I wouldn't have thought or considered rico being anywhere associated with the US at that point

    US territories don't have voting rights iirc even though people there are full American citizens.

    Pretty sure Puerto Rico and other territories would like that say: what are the benefits of being a territory anyway?

    Inb4 US Flag manufacturers campaigning heavily against it because they probably have billions of flags that will be outdated and thus can't sell.

    oh, i thought he called you a dumb american, or insults with the word "america", which are easily rebutted by telling him he's part of (continent) america

    Don't know how I feel about this yet, will need to call my grandmother.

    They pay taxes. Just not federal income.

    Also Puerto Rico has, iirc, the lowest GDP per Capital. So I don't know if they're going to be accepted since it might be a financial burden.

    @Worthyness;

    Cool video. Only issue I had is that he said yesterday the first state had legalized gay marriage. There are currently 8 states with same-sex marriage.

    haha yeah. I was like o_O when I heard it too. But I mostly linked it for the Puerto Rico stuff. Plus their channels are pretty overall awesomesauce on the whole learning-shindigs of the internet, so definitely credible source for infos :3

    Yes, I really enjoy watching the Vlog Brothers but also C.G.P. Grey when he actually posts videos.
