    So the party is over. The song wanes. The lights come up. And you're left standing on the dance floor by yourself. Violins. Fade to black.

    The peronists were dependent upon the socialist mentality for popular support and the unions were in turn dependent upon the government patronage for power. This midway ride is over.

    Oh gosh I hope so. I would love to see the Unions turning on CFK in December.
    It's really the best time, when it hot, they'll probably have blackouts, which means no water, food will be scarce and the layoffs in the auto companies should just beginning.
    It will be a joy to watch from afar.
    Maybe it will finally bring the change they've needed for 3 generations.

    Capitanich is calling for him to be investigated, accusing him of planning to overthrow the government. He says they should defend democracy.

    Someone should tell these bunch of wankers, that a democracy without an opposition, is called a dictatorship!

    I think this guy is out of touch, the latest inflation figure from INDEC is only 1.65% for the month.

    Ha, ha, ha.

    Oh yes, it's all going swimmingly: glug, glug.

    And yesterday Maximo crawled out of his hole to bring up the subject of re-re for the “hard working Cristina”. That should heat things up. Of course, he might have been snorting something because he had to keep blowing his nose...

    #9 he may have had his nose up some 10 year old boy's ass before the speech. Let's not assume he was coking.
