    i´m not happy because of her hospital stay.

    but who is such mendacious like ck has himself to blame if nobody believes her. perhaps this is the beginning of her “good bye”.

    “It was then reported that the MRI and other medical examinations that needed to be done were beyond the facility's technical capabilities”

    Is that somewhere else with no CT machine?
    Anyway, it takes more than imaging machines to deal with psychiatric conditions.

    Maybe her bi-polar condition in out of control. She seemed on a high when she broadcast her Christmas speech, knocking back the cider and crashing the press room.

    She certainly did not need to go to BsAs over a fractured ankle.

    I think most professionals call her condition 'raving lunacy'.

    Now I've worked in the world of medicine for nearly 30 years, 1st as an army medic, and later as a Registered Nurse, but I've never heard of the term 'evolutionary control' in regards to a sprained/fractured ankle.

    In medicine the term is usually applied to the control of infectious diseases. Like trying to stop the disease vectors etc...

    How do you try to prevent, through evolutionary control, something that has already happened?

    It's quite bizarre. But then of course it is. It's Argentina's mad President.

    We can only hope she gets better. Boudou, her pet flying monkey, is pretty scary.

    @7 Bubba

    No we don't need her to get better. She'll never get better. She is insane, and everyone knows it, so disregards her, and therefore Argentina.

    Boudou is a nobody, and a crook, and is even less regarded than CFK, so even IF he did take over the reins (which TMBOA will never relinquish) he'd be absolutely awful, which is all for the betterment of the Falkland Islanders.

    This 'incident' has conveniently arrived at a time when Argentina's true face has been shown to the world, curtesy of Top Gear, and she has once again gone into hiding because she couldn't face going to Brazil for Dilma's inauguration and basically being the laughing stock of SA.

    Because despite what Argentina claims, every country in SA HATES them, and loves watching them impotently thrashing about and making fools of themselves.

    So in CFK's tiny mind, it's better to hide away until it all blows over.

    Probably off her meds as she doesn't even trust her own doctor. Everyday she grows more and more isolationalist. Whats next? She marries Kim jong?

    This is probably due to all the stress from constantly covering her ass from all the corruption she has done.

    It is hard to imagine why a minor fracture to an ankle is preventing her from working. The latest is she is cancelling visits and meetings until the end of January. Why?

    As i've said many times, these “accidents” are caused by the over proscribed Lithium which is lowering her blood pressure, making her dizzy and delusional so she falls down. My guess is she banged her head pretty good again and that's why she really need the MRI or CT Scan or whatever she really got.

    “CFK's fractured ankle may be something else”

    May I humbly assist my Argie friends...

    If it's located between the foot and the shin...
    It truely is an ankle.

    The knee is further up the leg.

    Progressing further up (and here is the source of your confusion), you'll encounter her hip structure. The rear of the hip area you'll locate both her asshole and her head.
    That's right. Don't be confused. “Head up the ass” is a recognized congenital condition of her family.

    I hope this clarifies the situation.

    @17 I am sure you are right.

    “Using lithium together with ethanol can increase nervous system side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating. Some people may also experience impairment in thinking and judgment. You should avoid or limit the use of alcohol while being treated with lithium. ”

    “Cristina is mistrustful by nature and has a conspirative look on life which makes her lock herself up, amidst a fistful of her nearest ones because she perceives the rest of the world to be hostile.”

    Wow, what a diagnosis! It's not a 'perception', it's reality. Why wouldn't the rest of the world be hostile to a corrupt, criminal, deviant, larcenous, mendacious slag-whore?

    Let's do the right thing and send in the Royal Marine Commandos and SAS. RM Commandos have some of the best snipers in the world. SAS can handle infiltration and exfiltration. Might also be able to wipe out the argie 'army' at the same time. No problem with munitions air drops. Maybe the RAF could land light and heavy tanks? Challenger 2 MBTs could certainly wipe out the argie army!

    As i suspected:

    Ahhhh... the Dungeon Room...

    She probably overbalanced in her stiletto heels as she was landing a few sweeping lashes of the riding crop “Dear Mistress”, on the bare arse of the bound and prostrate Kiciloff ...

    Her Medical staff likely fueled her anger, “clumsily” trying to get her swollen foot out of the high heeled boots, and removing the Bo Peep costume before transporting her!

    So a string of ankle problems is unbelievable?? When you get to an age when use, abuse and a certain number of birthdays add up, chronic problems like hers, yes, do pile up. i know so because i share her problems, tho luckily not (yet) a broken ankle. I have, as she does, built-up nerve damage to my left foot which periodically causes me to trip and hurt the ankle. In my case, it's called peroneal palsy, a condition that limits the ability of the foot to be raised high enough while walking to avoid even slight rises in the pavement or other surfaces which causes me to trip, a condition i've been successfully treating off and on with an ankle brace for the last several years (I am 64). Fernanadez' supposedly impossible ankle problems are less common than the devious fools and tools like the author of this piece are, using innuendo and gossip to create disparaging pseudo-facts about a politician such scum dislikes enough to spew garbage about. She can be sincerely criticized well enough for her errors in judgment. MercoPress shows its more vicious colors by stooping to the level of the journalism of the thug.

    “Due to her broken ankle, Fernandez will not be attending Dilma Roussef's inauguration and will instead be represented by Vicepresident Amado Boudou.”

    Perhaps the news about CF breaking an ankle is just a convenient excuse so that she doesn't have to come to Brazil to attend the swearing- in ceremony of the fat B....Definitely a waste of time.

    50% of the WORKING population makes less than U$375 ( one night in a nice hotel)
    350,000K jobs were lost last year and this is with Arg gov't adding 2MM!!!
    Arg gov't employs more than the USA now.

    And 2014 was considered not so bad
    I can't wait until 2015
