    Cool as long as he is paying taxes and fees nobody is complaining, after all there are fines and fee to deal with those problems, we didn't think mercopress would be here to snitch on them. How come the theft and crimes in Lybia are never reported?? take a look at the bias reporting done here.

    What, he only could afford a $40K house and has only managed to save $37K?

    Either he is an Argie economist or just not very good at saving!

    Lybia is not really in MercoPresses target area.

    You set low standards for your leaders if you think it is “cool” that they preach one thing and do another.

    Yes I think it is cool because he did not theft all of Libya's money nor killed innocent Muslim women and children, nor did he arm terrorists in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, mali, Sri lanka, egypt, syria and kenia. As UK and USA are doing now. My priorities seem fine, how are yours??? A little bias I see.. Get a life ignorant. Who do you think u are talking to??

    Don't you just love the “do as I say, not as I do” philosophy? Of course,no worries at all, he is paying taxes. No what do you suppose the CFK droids would be saying here if it were a member of the opposing party?
    And #4 continues to speak with such hollow a echos. He will be chanting his homo, racist, pervert chant next. But for now he is sticking with his muslim women and children killer chant.

    Axel is supposed to be at the far left of this government, his policies certianly show this to be true. Very suprised that he is preching one thing and doing another. I assume that he will now have to “pesify” his US$ accounts at the going rate.

    @1 You have a literacy problem.
    @2 There is nowhere in the world called “Lybia”, anymore than there is anywhere called “Malvinas Argentinas”. And then your last sentence “Who do you think u are talking to??” It's not “who”, it's “what”. And on the face of it, it's a piece of foul-mouthed, ignorant, stupid, sub-human, slime-sh*t. Any more questions, slime-sh*t?
    @8 He's like you. “You can't touch me 'cos I luv CFK.” Or sh*t, by any other name!

    Didn't the 'Dear Leader' CFK order all her people to swap their dollars for Peso's?

    Now if CFK's 'wonder boy' hasn't taken any notice of her, it means:

    1. CFK has lost control of her own government, or
    2. CFK was just blowing smoke up the voting publics arses, as she and her cronies never intended to swap their dollars for pesos.

    I think it's a bit of both.

    I don't think she has lost control as much as she never really had it. I think her croonies are pleased to have her as the point person because the the shit starts flying, she will be the scape goat they all point to and hang. In the mean time they keep plodding along milking they people for they ill gotten gains and when it's exposed.....“opps.....my bad”.
    The most amazing thing is that the Joe Blow public accepts that!

    Maybe he just plans to donate it to the cause the next time a $US debt needs repaying?

    This is 'pretty small beer' if this is the sum of his assets.

    I surmise that there is significant (new) family wealth lodged elsewhere, in dollars and /or Swiss francs.

    Perhaps, as Beef says, he has just not become proficient at corruption;
    but my guess is, Think, he has become very good at it.

    Well the last BCRA head has U$250K in a paper bag in her private office bathroom. Maybe that's why it doesn't show up in this accounts yet.

    @16 -gust bury

    Envious? It's you and people like you that these people are robbing blind.

    You cannot save in US$ but they can. You cannot buy US$ but they can. They 'make' the law which YOU must obey, but they DON'T have to obey it.

    The fact that you don't see anything 'wrong' with this double standard, in a democratic country, means you are either being paid to support this government, stupid or both.

    He is not a very good businessman. He managed, together with FatBoy, to screw Aerolinas Argentina out of USD 2.4 billion. I wonder what the split was and how many shares in YPF he now has.

    It's one thing for the politicians to get rich, most do. But the “do as I say not as I do” would make me go ballistic. It's like they accept being anllay raped with lube.

    @24
    When the expenses scandal in the UK broke, I am sure B-K said something like “this is small beer, what’s all the fuss about”.

    Otherwise, surely he would be being a little bit hypocritical.

    Or is it the case that crooked leaders are ok in South America but not in the UK?
    It’s the white man’s burden, Massa B-K knows what is best for us.

    I am starting to think the RG posters are politicians. Who else would blindly support such open stupidity and hypocracy to the level that the world laughs at them?

    #25 Interesting point. I of course excoriated the expenses scandal, but if I recall right Tom Watson was one of the most embarrasing expenses offenders. Bad for him, but that won't stop me saluting his bravery in standing up to the Murdoch empire's phone hacking and exposing much worse corruption; although less left wing than me, I think he would make an excellent leader of the Labour Party. Also would like to note that the most left wing, pro-Latin American MPs like George Galloway and Jeremy Corbyn were completely clean on their expenses

    So graft is ok if you are:
    a) A left wing South American politician; or
    b) A left wing British politician.
    Just making sure I understand the rules.

    In what way is George Galloway “pro-Latin America”???
