    So it's all Macri's fault?

    Stupid buggers, what about the wealth destruction TMBOA caused to everybody else except her own poisonous brood?

    Keep going Macri, the savings will eventually right the economy.

    Only in a country with a low educated population would they be protesting against market prices.
    Neither Gov't entities can afford to subsidise oil to keep people working.

    Gov't has got to get out of the Market and let the people know they're not the backstop to all of their problems.

    Almost he entire lot out on the same article. Dumb, dumber and mimi dumbest.

    You just can't make up the stupidity that flows from the minuscule minds to the finger tips. That is pure stupidity in action. People of MP, consider yourself privileged to read stupidity at that level first hand.

    Which one do you suppose is the leader and which do you suppose is the shit turd hanging onto the other's hairy ass? I guess that the preceding post is the mini me shit turd. He seldom has an original post other than.....yeah, what he says.

    I'd be careful chronic, one day YB/Fred and Luci will sit just right and squish that little shit turd of a brain of yours. Maybe he might even shave his ass and then where will you hang out?

    This is about an KFC supporters voicing their opinion nothing to do with Detroit or America come to that. Best thing that Maggie did was to take on the unions. If the Argies do not want to work then let them join the millions in poverty.Is it Macris fault that KFC fucked up the economy of Argentina.

    Never underestimate the potential of Peronism and its syndicates to paralyse the country and economy with strikes and paros and looting and worse, to frequently remind that world that in spite of Argenzuela's “potential” it remains one of the worst places in the world for foreign investors to start a new business. Macri may be the political leader of the present government, but Peronismo runs the country.

    Luci, have you returned to cut and paste some more words? Or have you learned to steal the content of others thoughts and reword them to fit your needs.

    Wiki this and wiki that. Is there a wiki realtor site for you? I have been wondering just how much talent or minimal brains it takes to sell something that someone else made, that someone else designed and decorated. Do you u place ads to tell others that you are placing this ad to sell this property for someone else? Sends like a job for a high school drop out.

    “Luci is creepy”

    Ok Sybil, please provide another Episode of the Luci loves Yankee” show. Your brilliance for entertainment was by far under estimated.

    Dissociative identity disorder (DID), previously known as multiple personality disorder (MPD), is a mental disorder on the dissociative spectrum characterized by the appearance of at least two distinct and relatively enduring identities or dissociated personality states that alternately show in a person's behavior, accompanied by memory impairment for important information not explained by ordinary forgetfulness. These symptoms are not accounted for by substance abuse, seizures, other medical conditions, nor by imaginative play in children. Diagnosis is often difficult as there is considerable comorbidity with other mental disorders. Malingering should be considered if there is possible financial or forensic gain, as well as factitious disorder if help-seeking behavior is prominent.

    In my own words ....only, please do not follow this link:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dissociative_identity_disorder

    (PSSSST....I may have cut and pasted, but, I also edited the bibliography numbering.)

    Apart from a personal? attack you wish to perpetuate for your own satisfaction, I don't know why you are talking about Ft Mac fires in this and other threads.

    You make a lousy armchair QB ( do you what that is?).
    For a start, the local lakes cannot accommodate more water bombers. The Americans have undoubtedly offered their services, but are not making political hay about it.
    I am sure that the people in charge know a lot more about fighting fires and the logistics of such operations, than a needy Troll in East Bumfuck Europe somewhere.

    I understand why the colony of Brits on the islands wasting time post here, any South Americans, even those who lost money in a get rich quick scheme investing in defaulted bonds. Why would anyone else from a developed nation bother being here? Do you suppose they, you, them all post comments on the Zimbabwe Daily news as well? The Daily Sabah in Turkey? Interesting choice to post for these self proclaimed intellectuals to further their understanding of the world. It reminds me of the footballer who desires to be a better player so he practices with inferior players and always manages to win. It is an uplifting feeling for the ego, until........he talks to real people.

    I assume they never leave once they settle in and become comfortable. How could they?

    Macri didn't devaluate the Argentine peso.

    He let it float freely, and it devalued itself closer to it's actual value around 16.50-17 to the US dollar.

    I understand your point about relevance.

    I take exception to Jaun minimising the Islanders to the status of colonists when they are a distinct society that has lived there for generations and 175 years.
    They are self governing.

    It is also not for him to say whether people from “developed countries” should be here.

    By his own criteria, only Islanders or undeveloped countries should be on the site.

    One has to wonder, is that because he doesn't want anyone from developed countries like the UK refuting the propaganda and disinformation from Argentina and pals?
