    So great. Argentina which has some of the best beef genetics in the world sits on its butt in the stands applauding the yankee play when they should be out playing on the field as competitors

    Nah, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Russia, Paraguay, Uruguay, the USA, Canada, Japan, and the EU can have the market. Argentina is not interested in selling its meat outside the country, the internal market being the world's biggest consumer per capita is enough. We don't need the rest of the world.

    A few months ago you used to write some sensible stuff on here. Then you realised how much anger your country's government invokes over the Falklands and you took it personally. Now because it is boiling up inside of you you can't help but to spout shit like post 3.

    “Argentina is not interested in selling its meat outside the country”.

    “We don't need the rest of the world”.

    What a load of garbage you write. It's really eating you up so badly that your judgement is skewed to buggery. You don't believe statements like the ones I've highlighted but you're so bitter you can't help it.

    No my crass pseudo-observer of human folly, YOU made it personal (that is a generic “you”, as in french “on” or german “man”. before you accume me of libel).

    I came here to discuss things, I was greeted with weeks of personal insults, based on the simple fact of where I was from. If you expected me to take it, you are sadly dummer than I believed.

    You guys don't like it personal? Stop making it personal, criticize the government, but you insult everything about us. Now don't cry like lsolde and others who are now so discombobulated that they get their dish of venom served right back in their dinner table.

    “Argentina is not interested in selling its meat outside the country, the internal market being the world's biggest consumer per capita is enough. We don't need the rest of the world”

    and everythings going to be in pesos too? where are the consumers going to find the money to purchase the meat? you cannot have a closed system with one currency, it does not work. No matter what you may believe you DO need the rest of the world.

    #6 what money?? We have enough pesos to buy Argentina 100 times over. Besides. We have the eggs, chicken, cows and milk right in our back yards. Only EU and USA will have to buy pesos to get meat. Argentina did a lot better by themselves in the past 10 years then during all the years they got help from US and IMF, why would we go back to that stingy life of servitude, when we can take control of our country on our own. #6 keep your uneducated babbling for your country men, they would understand your backward mentality.

    I think CFK is using Mugabe's playbook. How to ruin a country in a few short years.
    I wonder they will have a 1 Trillion Peso note too?

    I truly beginning to believe most RGs are as stupid and shorts sighted as Toby and Pirat. That is why it Argentina will always be poorer than the previous generation.

    @8

    If a country is poorer from one generation to the next it means it must have built significant wealth at some point, so those people couldn't be stupid and short-sighted by nature, think before you write twarp.

    Yes at one point Argentina was run by UK and USA when you were one of the richest countries in the world...then along came Peron. Now every generation is poorer than the next and there is nothing that is going to change it until BA looks like La Paz.

    Buy sugar store in cool dry place and hope for the best is your only solution.

    @5 Oh, piss off, you baby!
    @7 Don't want your meat. The word has been spread that your meat is unsafe. Shouldn't have used those vet drugs banned elsewhere. Please don't comment on the “mentality” of others until youu get one yourself. You are a very poor, sad turd with nothing useful to say.
    @9 That's good advice. So why don't you STFU?

    Toby, I wonder if you realize how bitter and angry you are? If you're not careful you are going to end up like Think. Poor, cold, alone and wondering how someone so smart could end up so miserable and wondering how the world could be so cruel.
    You are on a very sad and lonely path. I hope you are playing a persona and most of these posts are not what you really believe.
    It is very sad.

    Good luck to the Russkies. I see that Mr.Stidham is using a quality breed - Aberdeen Angus.

    coruscately?
    seems that you're becoming so isolationist that you're making up your own language...

    What dictionary are you using. Coruscately is not an English word and does not appear in the Oxford Dictionary. Coruscation does and the adverb would be coruscatingly.
    It is getting a bit tedious having to correct your pedantic attempts at impressing us with your half -baked use of obscure and archaic terms in the English language.
