    Thats cool !!

    3 Judges: Bonadio, Griesa and another one in Nevada are the only ones with balls in 8 years that have managed to stuff it up CFK. The Argentine opposition should be hanging from a lamp post. Useless cunts

    Poor Collaborator!


    To the author: Once again you demonstrate your ignorance of the most simple aspects of law OR alternately confirm your intellectual dishonesty.

    Take your choice.

    The denomination of the bond is of no consequnce - it's the law under which it drafted, construed and enforced.

    So, are you incompetent or dishonest?

    Kicillof accused the holdouts of “not willing to negotiate, to reach a deal” and he stressed that they have refused several offers, “even one with a 300% profit margin.”


    Dear Mr. Kicillof ,

    I would accept the the 300% Profit. That would mean, that you repay me 300% capital + Interest. (I have bought my bonds at an average of 100%)

    I like the way Austal Elvis is leaking that they have no intention of coming to an agreement in q1 2015.
    I wonder if the holdins are really listening?
    Methinks not
    The problem with the Civilized world is they don't understand they're dealing with Insane people in Argentina. They're thinking nobody would be that stupid to do X, then they're surprised when they do.
    One of the reasons I am pretty good at figuring out where the Ks are going to go is I take what a normal person would think and take away reason and accountability. ( I stole that btw)
    So nothing from the Sistahs, funny how they never post on articles that prove their previous posts inaccurate.
    Or maybe they don't have electricity.

    10. Just reading between the lines of some articles over the last couple of weeks.

    Its costing be U$80+/barrel to find and they're gonna get $60 +/-, the math speaks for itself.

    Pretty soon YPF's bonds are going to be in jeopardy too.

    This is all coming together nicely.

    I dont know what Chevron agreed to with the Ks. As I got it they where up to having a foot on the place but not committing anything substantial in the short term.

    Mind you Galluccio said as he was appointed in 2012 that with 35 Bn USD worth of investment in VM by 2016 Argentina would recover energetic independence.
    Now they say they need 200 Bn investment over the next 10 years. They have utterly failed and lied, and the confiscation was a massive mistake

    13. I think NML is trying to make Chevron reveal the contract. So we may know soon. I said long ago the goal was to secure the rights and slow walk development until the nutters are out of gov't. That really hasn't changed it just pushed development waaaaaay out. Nobody is going to commit large sums of cash for a loss.
    It was a very bad mistake for the gov't to take YPF the way they did. THe market cap is only 13B now it will probably be 10B next year or less. If they don't go bankrupt in the interim. They'll certainly not be able to float U$ bonds anytime in the near future.
    Fracking technology will get better quickly, but I still don't think VM will ever be a good investment. How many times has Argentina stolen it? 3? 5? I'm pretty sure we'll all be retired or dead before any substantial oil is brought out of there.
    Anyway, remember Think/Voice and some of the other Sistahs saying of course people will flock to BA to get paid their bond interest payment. Remember that?
    I do
    Remember Idiot Voice saying Griesa would for sure pay the Euro bond payment? Something about back peddling was it? Or wait was that Think?

    I feel sorry for you CD. You should move to the USA. Its only going to get much worse pretty quickly. Argentina may end up being worse than Venezuela soon.

    15. It depends on the State you're registering in and the type of business but you can incorporate yourself for a few hundred $ and in a couple hours?

    15. A few hundred dollars. Most small businesses now do LLC'S because reporting requirements are less cumbersome than incorporating with the same separation and liability issurs.

    Again the dumb yanks are trying to impose their law in England. An English judge will fix. Expect some yank bankers to spend time in gaol. Fortunately the Argies are now paying so my grandmother is ok.

    It is easy to set up a company in the USA. It's not easy to move and a lot of Argentinians end up not being able to take our work ethic but if you want to make money and live in safety you should move here.

    That's typical of you yank robber barons. You try to steal an old woman's money and you want everybody to shut up about it. British people will speak out. It is not rubbish. The case is going ahead. You yanks will be forced to pay your debts. My grandmother is getting updates from the solicitors. You robber baron yanks have failed.

    25, She's probably going to be getting updates from her Solicitors for a very long time. A UK court can't tell a US court what to do. Why can't you understand that?

    The English judge will not told the stupid yank judge what to do. He will tell an English bank what to do with English bonds. Your stupid robber baron yank law is not in England. In England we have anti vulture laws. Why can't you understand that. Because you're a stupid yank thats why. With the pars my grandmother is getting paid by the Argies. She doesn't care how many solicitors letters she gets.

    To be honest I woke up today and said “enough” with these European Italians, Germans, Spanish, French, etc. From this point on, they are to be regarded as peddlers in the street: to be completely tuned out and breezed by when walking.

    No, the honor is mine. My xenophobia will be spread to others in Argentina. I would like to thank the education about foreigners I have received here, how you all are disreputable twats and jerks that have no respect for Argentines, and then expect to be somehow venerated. F-- off, now I will treat you how you have treated us here.

    The next hearing is in about 2 weeks. The reason the judge did not make the order before was to give the highway robber singer 2 weeks to respond. He missed the boat so no defence. He knows about the anti vulture law. He should not have been given 2 seconds. We do not like scum like him in England. The order will be made. Gaol time for some bank directors.

    So it is time to say 'Good Night Tobi', hey it was fun for a while, but unfortunately I see you were overwhelmed by logic, facts and general good sense.
    I hope you have learned a lot.
    Please try to keep up with the medication.
    Have a nice life, ciao!
