    So the bunch of losers had their holiday before they have to “work” for a living.

    Respect for anyone that actually toils at labor. This is good for the workers as they will only be upside down on the most immediate effects of domestic inflation by about 10%.

    Anyone that takes any statement from a representative of rotting roadkillian interests at face value should be committed for observation.
    When (if) the current set of thieves leave power the next group will have to audit YPF, ANSES, BCRA, ETC - to see if anything actually ever did exist.
    Internationally #107 with a 34 score.

    Useless gremios.

    EM: “I am totally humbled by such a thoughtful statement. Here It is, all the issues of a nation of forty-some million people explained in just seven words. We are all liars. We should realize that, become a protectorate and name Conqueror as Minister of the Truth. Finally, all will be solved.”
