    most Argentines are as upset by the sudden influx of outsiders as are their counterparts in Europe and the US, so they will not take kindly to being lectured on their primitive ways by their betters led by Cristina who, in an embarrassing attempt to prove she was unprejudiced, told us she thought the world of her Chilean maidservants and other immigrants who help Argentines by doing humble chores.

    While Cristina and Nilda gamble with our money and with social problems, a starving indigenous Wichí woman died in the Province of Salta. President Cristina de Kirchner knows it all about Redistribution of Wealth. These people can't give our own people food and they say we can give food to thousands of immigrants.

    Thousands of immigrants? Dude, you're acting as if Argentina receive thousands of immigrants, while the reality shows, hundreds of Argentinians are leaving the nation and thousands are willing to leave the country. Aren't you an immigrant yourself? So you yes, why do you bash the hand that feeds you (as you claim that Queen Kristina feeds immigrants)

    Fido Dido, another Latinoamericano like fred and briton, but this one lives in THE NETHERLANDS! Counting the immigrants and the illegals, yes, they are thousands per year. And where are those Argentinians going to? Europe? haha They are returning to Argentina because they don'r have jobs in Europe. Queen Kristina? I don't think she's a queen. She can only be la reina batata. And she definitely can't feed all those jobless immigrants and illegals, we do! Of course, there are those immigrants who come to work, but there are those who just come to do only God knows what. Say hi, Princess Máxima Zorreguieta!
