    I hope to have another ten years on this planet so given the usual fuck-ups by the government I will probably never see ANY results.

    1) You seem to be negative in all your posts concerning Uruguay - is there anything you actually like about the country and its citizens?

    2) I take this opportunity to advise you that I replied to your list of questions.

    @ 3 FATTY

    If it concerns the activities of the Mujica government and the appointees he made to all the monopoly businesses AND the Pluna affair, then yes you are correct. The activities of these crooks is only now surfacing as far as what it has cost us all.

    You told me you read El Pais, Uruguay, on a daily basis yet you come out with this 'you are being negative' again, just like your girlfriend.

    So, you haven't read, or more likely understood, that ANCAP (I take it you know what that is) have LOST (no record in the accounts of where it went) U$D300M under the crook who is now our Veep? Not only that, they announced that the accounts were now (in addition) U$D600M in the red, soon to be amended to U$D800M! They had kept quite about a U$D200M breach of contract with a lime company supplier for the cement business, but it came to light due to a investigation by an opposition party to the ruling 'Broad Fraud' as most intelligent Uruguayos know them as.

    Now, you RCC numbnut, please tell me how this is being negative when you understand there are only 3.3M men, women and children in the country to pay down this debt.

    THEN, the chairman blithely announced that the U$D600M lost over the last four years would be upscaled to U$D1,000M for the NEXT four years.

    Why don't you just go away and read that big book of fairytales and calm yourself down, because you clearly aren't capable of understanding reality.

    @ 5 FATTY

    I have dealt with those topics MANY times in the past: how much remarkably better the health of my wife has been in the last almost five years, the weather, the PEOPLE, NOT the government, etc.

    Had you been paying attention you would already know how HAPPY we are here.

    If you are so HAPPY there why are the majority of your posts so miserable?

    @ 7 FATTY

    If you want to see miserable I would try reading some of your lamentable efforts.

    Understanding and dealing with reality is generally what counts to educated persons, not reading RCC fairy tales.
