    A little late to start saying something now. When it happened she hid like a coward and didn't say a word.

    I have never seen any other country where the citizens routinely protest over last of Justice.
    The corruption in that country is killing it.
    At some point you'd think THE PEOPLE wouldn't stand for it yet it goes on and on generation after generation.

    Goes back to my eternal question;
    Are Argentinians stupid of lazy?

    “Are Argentinians stupid of lazy?”

    Wait... so we protest, which means we are lazy.

    Meanwhile you are shooting each other in mass in your war-torn nation, for over a decade now, and not one protest to ask for justice and safety.

    The only lazy-asses here at the obese creatures that inhabit the once pristine and beautiful north American plains, and the forests (now gone of course). A beautiful continent with millions of wildbeast, celestial flocks of passenger pigeons, beautiful wolves, amazing native cultures... all destroyed by fat pigs on two legs.

    That is called progress my friend if you ever had the chance to visit my beautiful country you would probably never leave just like the other est 500K Rgs that have overstayed their visas in the last 10 yrs.

    Let me clarify, you are either stupid or lazy for keeping these peronist thugs in office for the last 75 years while they have stolen the past and future generation's wealth.

    Runny nostril you need to check the articles about the obesity in SA reaching epidemic portions

    But don't worry, rgland is running out of food because they have run out of the dollar as their near trade deficits. No food will get you fat fucks like maximo in line. Travel and you would know just how fat the fucks are in RGland. If you were allowed to leave the messy mendoza you would know first hand what people do in the USA as you cannot learn everything locked in your closet with sticky hands.
    Yankee I think the breakdown is 40% stupid.....35% lazy and the remainder trapped and fucked.

    @5 Cap'n P
    ahh, good point about the halving of the trade deficit in just a year. I didn't know what it meant at all.

    A trade surplus is the only way Argentina acquires U$ for purchase internationally. They are out of the credit markets for the historical credit default. They are a knats ass away from a deficit and when that happens they owe U$ on top of the debt they owe.
    Having to pay out 8,000,000,000 in boind debt payments and over 10,000,000,000 in oil imports, I do not see where 18,000,000,000 is coming from when staring February, this month, Argentina will start turning deficits.

    Wintering is fast approaching. The majority do not run air conditioning in RGland because they simply cannot afford, so summer months are no an increase in electrical demand as other countries. As winter approaches, they not only heat with electricity, the shorter days means longer lights and higher demands. Winter will be very cold all because of the incompetence of the kirchners and her flying monkeys of Oz.

    Good Gracious these retards are still marching and chanting for Justice.

    Why don't they storm Casa Rosada/olivos and throw out the peole not giving you justice?

    No they'll just elect another bunch of criminals to replace the last bunch of criminals and wonder why they are getting poorer every year.

    and does no one work in that country?

    Bunch of wankers

    every time I suggest any one to storm Casa Rosada they look at me as if I was nuts. It seems like people think it's wrong to throw out the government, probably because they're scared of another dictatorship. Also there aren't many politicians that aren't Peronists, without them there would be a power vaccum.

    With the majority being peronists (do nothing but be corrupt party), it is the band wagon effect and the fear of starting a new positive movement.

    The issue is when people define “revolution” as disrupting the status quo, instead of offering alternatives. Countries that managed to turn corruption into something worthy of rival, did it by gathering an alliance of their best and brightest. Any military action was secondary.

    Countries that live in corruption have constant civil war and/or unrest, but never seem to piece together what they want. They just cry “revolution” and they never create stability. Maybe some among them don't want it.
