    Anyone Have American "classic" Car Or Harley?

    I have a friend who is doing a sort of exhibition and would like to feature a few classic autos or a bike for the guests. If interested it would include an invite to the event and a chance to show your prize possession to a targeted audience. Please send me a private message. Thanks!

    Appointment To Renew Us Passport?

    The forms are available at the Embassy and you can request during the interview to pick it up there when it is ready. It is not the normal procedure and if you get thru on the phone they will probably not offer the option as it will be the consul's decision. if they deny the request you can pay...

    Devastating.

    Back to the meat, it is of course a matter of preference, but most Gringos (a limited applicant pool, I understand) comment on the high quality of the meat, no doubt, and the constant fight to get it "jugoso" which is often ignored. Surprisingly, unlike in many other countries, I have a better...

    These Are The People Who Are Stealing Your Money

    I don't understand how people can expect a company to operate selling items at less than the cost to produce, package, market, stock, etc etc. A campaign such as this is the second step in delegitimization and, as was already noted, could lead to looting and other social unrest. Should it...

    Obama's Choice For Arg Ambassador.....$ Buys The Post?

    I was mistaken. Normally those who rattle on to me about Bush the war criminal usually follow up with something about Chavez the hero. I had you pegged incorrectly. However you seriously weaken your argument comparing Bush to Tojo and Milosevic. I have been to both Baghdad and Srebrenica and...

    Obama's Choice For Arg Ambassador.....$ Buys The Post?

    Traditionally presidents have appointed (sold) about 40% of ambassadorships, usually to the best locations. The remaining slots go to qualified, career diplomats who worked their way up to the job. Not all appointees are a sham. Think of Obama's selection of Jon Huntsman (R) to serve in China...

    Process For Argentines Obtaining A U.s. B1 Visa Changed?

    I may have been a bit snarky but the comments from original poster about consular officials having upset stomachs being the reason his gf didn't get a visa warranted the response. A consular "field office" is called a consulate, and granted Argentina is the largest country in the world by land...

    Process For Argentines Obtaining A U.s. B1 Visa Changed?

    I find it a bit childish when people are denied a visa and attribute it to "passport stamping Foreign Service officers" who "had a bad lunch" instead of to the possibility that they didn't qualify for the visa. Just maybe it had to do with the fact that your girlfriend had weak links at the...

    Us Citizen Marrying An Argentine. Paperwork Advice

    Regarding immigrating to the US with your Argie spouse, start the process about a year out from the time when you plan to move to the US. If you do not plan on moving to the US then there is no process to start - your spouse will not become a US citizen unless you are permanently moving to the...
