    @2 it's estimated that we'll run out of dollars in September or October, just in time for elections.

    They 'say' many things, a large proportion of which are either untrue, without foundation or simply do not happen. Why should this be any different?

    In a new move, it has been announced that “Kirchnerism” will be piped direct into every “home”. This will enhance the warm, cuddly, cosy feeling everyone gets as they slowly starve to death whilst watching Maximo scoffing pies and cream buns by the ton.

    Baxter, nobody is wondering any longer. It is inevitable.

    Fuel imports were higher than SOY exports THIS MONTH

    Words are being used to describe Argentina in US Congress are Rogue and Censure.

    Sounds like a 'loverly place' to live. I would not want my grand-kids anywhere near it by the sounds of things.

    18@ it would be a lot better place without a delusional government and De Vido is just one of many examples of a person totally lost: Legislative Elections: “Every vote to be for CFK”, De Vido !

    Planning Minister Julio De Vido said today, only the President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner “can guarantee continuity of this model” and added the Government needs “committed people”.

    De Vido made this statement in Santiago del Estero, where he took part in the ceremony with the governor of the province Gerardo Zamora and health minister Juan Manzur.

    De Vido asked to work for “achievements at the legislative elections in October”. He added that “each legislator’s vote shall be a vote for Cristina”.

    If they win the elections, welcome to the Venezuela of the south !
