    Does not matter how many staff they reshuffle, so long as they have CFK in the number two seat Argentina will continue to be unstable.
    The people of Argentina are the ones who can change how they want their Country to be run.
    They must remove dictators and corrupt operators before any real change can be achieved. Not an easy task given the power of corruption these leaders have.

    The people of Argentina has made it known that they are not happy with those running the country and just by shuffling the cabinet keeping the very same people who are creating all these issues is not going to satisfy the Argentine people. The only way that the current government is going to survive the next general election will be when they start working for their people and not against them.
    Almost 50% of the Argentine people now live in poverty and unless serious changes happen it will get a lot worse.
    Time to stop chasing the mythical dream and start doing what the good people of Argentina want. Peace with their neighbours and prosperity.
    That will only come by complete government policy changes but wont happen so long as the two current leaders are in office.

    Pugol-H. Just maybe they have seen the light and are not going to live by any myths anymore. Wishful thinking I know but one lives on hope.

    They say ‘hope springs eternal’, in this case, never underestimate the Peronistas ability to ‘persist in stupidity’, it borders on genius.

    I will miss Danny, he is a source of endless comedic entertainment. I love his twitter feed. Do you know? He never replies, considering he's our minister, you would think he would make an effort.
