    Pretty meager offer, not collecting taxes on grain going to a Mercosur member that is already supposed to get it tax free. Nice! Maybe they would like a lump of coal for Christmas too!

    How did you ever manage to get a dispensation from the Klan to jump the broom with that brownish “Untermensch” from Argentina?

    You did get one……………………............................................. Didn’t you?

    And what about any eventual spawn?

    Extremely didactic, little coward.
    I assume you were trained in a similar way. My regards to your trainer!
    You could have aided drought-stricken Uruguay yourselves, instead of criticizing. You have done this before with many nations, whenever it suited your interests.
    I wonder, what do you think is for Argentina to gain with this gesture?. Is it part of a diabolic plot that will somehow affect FI interests? Otherwise, I see nothing for you to complain about. It is, in fact, none of your bussiness.

    It is a “formidable gesture”. A formidable gesture in Argentina's long-term plan to “assimilate” Uruguay.

    fredbdc, the Mexican, grativating around Argentina, you are a serious wanker. You should excercise more instead of living your life in these forums, so you can run away from that filthy land called Mexico, remember that you have to jump over that wall :) Stop being so evident, Argentina, is a great country, and no matter how hard you try, you'll never make it through your hate, you're sick, and you would be nothing more than an immigrante mexicano in the USA and everywhere you go. Argentina is a country, México is the land of narcos and beheaded people hanging from the bridges, now post a link to an article about Argentin and drugs hahaha, you're so predictable.

    fredbdc, the brown who hates himself for being brown. Repeat it fredbdc, repeat it as many times as you can : I'm whote, I'm white, I'm white, and I can assure you that after 10000000000000000000000000000 years of doing it you'll be white, just like Michael Jackson!

    The UK will leave las Islas Malvinas, those people living there are British they are not Falklanders, they are just British who stole the islands from us. They don't have any right to self-determination simply because they're British citizens, as for the Chileans living there, you'll leave the islands too and return to Chile. Don't test your luck you British fools, you soon will be walking on thin ice. The winds of change are blowing, and you'll be removed away from our Islas Malvinas for good, you'll get back to where you belong, the UK.

    Xbox, did the electricity just come back on? Do you have enough water to bathe yet or are you still protesting on the street corners banging your pots and pans in the hot dark night?
    Can you please tell me what would make you think I am Mexican? I kinda like Mexico the resorts remind me of home. Americans playing and Mexicans waiting on them but they still don't know the difference between Lemons and Limes. I don't know why, possibly it's because they are from south of Texas and can't tell the difference between yellow and green. Latins are not known for their brilliance as evidenced from these boards.

    Think, will you still be so bitter in the new year? Will you continue to attack and cyber stalk people to get your kicks? Probably yes. Not much else to do at the end of the world living on a $U500 stipend from CFK. I hope you didn't spend all of the U$80 Christmas bonus in one place!

    Unfortunately for you, you are going to wake up tomorrow still living at the forgotten end of the world with 30% inflation, a corrupt and filthy country that is making their citizens poorer and more isolated every year. I hope you enjoy the backward progression while the rest of the world moves on.
    Maybe someday you will get to travel to The Falklands and get to see what a wonderful little place it is and then you will see why it will never be part of the foul 3rd world country you call home.
    Happy New Year!

    Well usually the Argentinians we deport make it into the Arg local papers. Did you see anything?
    It is usually a pretty funny story of a family being jailed, then a long long court case with everyone weeping and wailing that they were confused and didn't realize stealing a social security number was illegal. “Please don't send us home” it is soo horrible there and our children only speak English now” Plus it is very dangerous and there is no electricity or water in our capital city so we want to be refugees. wahhh wahhh wahha.
    Did you see it? it is pretty funny and so deserved.

    What is your problem? Where are you going with this? Have you missed some of you medication over the Holidays? This is outlandish behavior even for you.

    Why don't you take some time and cyber stalk someone else maybe that will calm you down.

    You are surely mentally unstable but with the highest % of psycho-analysts in the world you must be able to find someone to help you even in the as* end of the world. Although I am not sure there is any cure for being a Sudaca and a Peronista. so you may be out of luck.

    My spouse and family hate Peronistas just about as much as I do, why do you think we are living in the USA and probably bringing the rest of the immediate family here? I don't hate the country (land) I hate the corrupt politicians and stupid people that have made a beautiful country into a stinking sh*thole.
    As I said before I am not prejudiced, my immediate family is pretty diverse in race and religion but I will also say that my spouse's ethnicity is as blond and blue as I am so you assuming things that do not pertain to me.

    Actually those are all qualities you have assigned me. The only one I have ever agreed to was that I am an American Patriot. That I will not deny.

    You would think as old as you are you would have grown up by now but just because you are somewhat educated it doesn't mean you are smart or are going to act like an adult.

    Dream Dream Dream that someday you will have enough money to travel to a place you claim to own but you will never see. Sad Sad Sad.

    No wonder you are so bitter. In the sunset of your life and still have not accomplished what you thought was possible. Weren't you supposed to be so educated, are you still wondering why you could never leave your end of the world province? Why with so much knowledge people don't recognize you for the mental genius you claim to be? Still driving an old car, having to be careful how much electricity and gas you use, scrimping and saving so you can maybe see your grandchildren one last time.
    It is very sad, I see why you spend so much time in this alternate reality where you and Argentina are significant are part of the 1st world and all is well. Sorry but 20111 you will be poorer than you were in 2010 and 2009. It never gets better for you does it?

    I know gifting private funds is not common in Socialism (peronism) countries but it is here in the Great USA. In fact we give more internally/externally than the WHOLEGDP of Argentina. Oh what a marvelous place it is! Do you wonder what your life would have been like if you were born in the USA instead of the most foul Argentina? Does it eat at you daily?
