    I bet “Free energy” Stevie doesn’t show up on here!

    I was berated about accusing this illiterate, innumerate, communist bastard for his financial cocks ups but now we have the truth of the matter.

    US$62,500 outstanding for each “magistrate” (I thought they were judges?) and there are 400 of them, and this from April 2012. A total shortfall of US$25 million!

    I hope they try this Tupamaro idiot in the courts; it would be a fitting end to his disastrous “presidency” and his “rule” over us (his and his harridan wife’s words).

    I suppose it’s too much for them to try and shoot the bastard again: 6 shots by the police and he is still alive, blanks or water pistols?

    I bet he does.

    Stating “justice is getting rid of the amnesty law, not increasing the paychecks of those who does nothing to promote justice.”

    Feel free to quote me.

    @ 2 “Free energy” Stevie

    Why should I quote such an imbecilic off topic statement as that?

    BTW your “Glorious” president hasn’t paid the teachers yet either.

    “No Money Pepe” has really fucked up big time, but the only one who is surprised is you.

    @ 4 “Free energy” Stevie

    If you lived here and actually spoke to the real people you would know this is not bollocks AND No Money Pepe berated them for only working half the time.

    This man is a disgrace to the citizens he should SERVE not RULE.

    And you are as bad, frankly.

    @ 6 “Free energy” Stevie

    Thankfully this cretin has not been in for 10 years and with a bit of luck will be impeached before he leaves office a fitting end to such a disasterous tenure.

    I see you have no real answer to my posts, AGAIN.

    When are you going to join the rest of us in the present, instead of back with the Tupamaros?

    The Tupamaros is not an active organisation, Chris.
    You need to join us in the present.
    Frente Amplio is the present.

    And the obvious future.

    @ 8 “Free energy” Stevie

    If the Broad Fraud is the future then we are all fucked.

    Apart from you because you don’t live here.

    Not the first instance of a Frente Amplio administration attacking the constitution. In fact, it's painfully obvious that the Frente Amplio hate the constitution, transparency and accountability.
