    Always look on the bright side of things. There wasn't much to do in Colonia anyway and the ferry ride would sometimes make a lot of people seasick.
    Staying home isn't so bad.

    There is nothing like bashing the population of Argentine into the ground and starving them of what is rightly theirs to ensure they vote for you at the next election: OR so that seems to me, otherwise why do these twats keep getting elected?

    Tourist season in Viña del Mar and La Serena will not be the same without the girls from Mendoza and San Juan strolling along our beaches in Chile.

    I don't think candidates from this gal's party are going to get elected next time.

    Is CFK just a frontperson and it is really Moreno and Maximo and La Campora that are running the country?

    Maybe she's just become too tired and it is just working out that others are calling the shots more these days?

    When La Campora put the squeeze on LAN airlines recently, Argentina's reputation with it's neighbors had no room to suffer that additional blow to their reputation. What must Chilenos and Brazilians think of Argentina now?

    If CFK was in power, she would have stopped La Campora from doing that right away.

    Another article lately, about Gibraltar, said it is where they found evidence of one of the latest and last settlements of Neanderthal people.

    Is it possible that Neanderthals actually still exist amongst homo sapiens?

    “...last settlement of Neanderthal people.”

    That 'last settlement' was the one the Neanderthals made with 93% of the Bondholders for 30 cents on the $1.

    There won't be any more bailouts after that ripoff!

    What gets me, as there are many things, that these trolls post about others countries debts, but they fail the understand they are PAYING their debt, not walking away from it and claiming to manage their debt loads better than others. I really hope they Mussolini her ass.

    That has been Argentina's 'way' from the virtual 'birth' of the nation, borrow money and then default. The first big one was, I believe in 1828 when 'they' defaulted on a one million pound loan from Barings bank in London in 1824. That was never repaid.

    In July 1832 Francis Baylies the US Charge d'Affaires wrote to Edward Livingstone, the US Secretary of State ”.. empowered to negotiate a commercial Treaty with Buenos Aires, writes to Livingston opposing any agreement; “ … for we should abide by it, and they would consider the violation of a treaty no greater offence than a lie told by schoolboy. With the Bey of Tripoli or the Emperor of Morocco we might for a time maintain unviolated the provisions of a Treaty but with these people if a temporary advantage could be gained they would violate a treaty on the day of its ratification.”
    In other word 'they' could not be trusted then and I believe the same to be true today.

    There is no hope the Argentines are masochist they love misery and pain no smarts to get out of their dictatorship It looks like the Paraguayans were smarter to get rid of that bastard dysfunctional catholic child rapist and abuser, yesterday a woman senator elected in Paraguay call him a “dysfunctional person” the sad story is he still in the government as a senator! I guess is South American politics is dysfunctional too.
