Ever thought about extending your ride share services out to DR? You could start a new blog thread about it and maybe gain some likes...you would benefit oh so much.

Another one bites the dust. This is really disgusting. They need to figure out what's going on. The DR officials are not helping themselves by not being transparent. I hope the FBI gets to the bottom of this

I won't ever be going back. I hated it there now all this.

I went to the hard Rock punta Cana on December 11th 2018 and got violently sick. After reading all this I am glad I made it home alive.

DR has no industry except for tourism. They better get this shit resolved ASAP or wind up an open sewer like Haiti.

Some idiots on news made the statement that you are more likely to die in the US than the DR and you should not worry about going to DR since dying there is less likely than the US. I know our liberal media lost their mind over Trump and things he does are all bad. Now they can not even recognize when something non-political is really bad.

https://nypost.com/2019/06/19/you-pr...acation-study/

This was even stated on national news networks. Wonder what their rational is to make statements like this. The media has no clue people do not trust anything they say about politics and now they trying to say oh do not worry people are dying on their vacation.


Did anyone see that DR came out and said the couple who died together did not actually die together, the husband died first from a medial condition and when the wife saw he was dead she then died. The media even report this, the media is going to get people killed.

They also blamed the deaths on Americans going to all inclusive resorts because they eat and drink too much when it's free.

Saw that on Fox News...no other news network bothered to play that video for some reason.

But seriously, what a bunch of egotistical pompous &^!#$ ... really goes to show who's interests they truly care about.
