    Be careful you're channeling Nostril. It could be bad for your sanity! LOL

    But you've hit the nail on the head, that is exactly what the Malvinistas will post, or they will say, we such and such is worse than us, and provide a link to a document where they've only read the headline, and completely misunderstood it, because the document is actually not supporting their position.

    La Campora's standards are dropping. But I suppose you only get what you pay for, and I understand that the price of bread and sausages has skyrocketed, so they are probably only feeding their trolls every other day.

    Stand by for a counter attack on the UK press, my guess is they will miss-represent the reasons for the Levelson Enquiry! Oh and the evil Murdoch empire.

    Press-freedom in Mercosur is a contradiction in terms.

    Uruguay really needs to get out of Mercosur, its in the wrong place politically, and geographically. Its actually a decent just chose the wrong partners :/

    Congrats Finland, Netherland & Norway!!!!!!!

    Interestingly....they have the lowest percentages of same-sex -only oriented people in the world. Could it have something to do with high EQUALITY and lack of authoritarianism as psychology suggests?
