    Salta/cafayate/argentina Countryside--Cheap Living?

    I'd like to see a response to polostar88's #6 and hear more about Merlo/San Luis. Wikipedia sez its economy is doing great and its climate chart on the province looks great. Has it been discovered? Is the cost of living going up? Etc. Gracias.

    Very interesting. Surely the far north is sweltering? Wikipedia: "The main features of the climate are high temperatures and abundant rainfall throughout the year." "The subtropical climate has no dry season, which makes Misiones one of the most humid provinces in Argentina." 'm into...

    Conservatives Abroad?

    Woo woo, let's all rush to apply the new buzzterms -- even though they'll be taboo sometime too. Is it "black", "African-American" or "Afro-American" this year? (Shame on MLK for constantly referring to "Negroes".) Favorite oxymorons: illegal immigrants (there's no such thing); native Americans...

    Conservatives Abroad?

    It sounds horrible and very familiar to this yankee. Big-spender politicians just ruin everything on earth! But Paraguay gets very mixed reviews indeed. I'm presently enamored of Australia. Sounds like a very happy-go-lucky place. But dig a little deeper and it turns out citizens simply aren't...

    Conservatives Abroad?

    Thank you, Ries. That could be very refreshing compared to the hidebound situation here. But why would anybody object to dissing Israel? I don't think I need to go into the good reasons for it at this point in history. Is everybody (are expats) expected to be nice all the time? Incidentally I...

    Conservatives Abroad?

    Zat so! It's a given in the Jewnighted states -- the govt keeps every email, tweet, phone call etc. that's made, something like a billion a day. People tell me "I can't come to your meeting or demonstration. I'll get on a LIST!" I tell them "if you find one I'm not already on, call me...

    Well there's an honest opinion and I always appreciate such -- thank you. The fact that neither you or I are being clobbered for our free treatment of certain topic is a good sign.

    Conservatives Abroad?

    I didn't realize that in so many words, Ries. What it doesn't have is a "terror" psychosis resulting from it being joined at the hip to Israel, and that would change a hell of a lot. Are police depts being given war surplus tanks and otherwise militarized + brainwashed to regard the citizens as...

    Conservatives Abroad?

    For the real story search What Really Happened in Youtube -- it's the weekday broadcasts archived with the commercials removed, and not for conservatives only. If this thread is any indication, "The only other conservative that I've seen here is when I look in a mirror" must be quite true...

    Hate North Americans?

    You're kidding! Argentines don't hate the USA? Man, I'm not going there. I was beginning to think they had some common sense. Anybody know a good, affordable, stable country to run to from the USA that understands and deplores the ameriKan empire with its insane warmongering, foreign...

    Is It Time to Bail Out of the US?

    It's been months since I last signed in and I'd forgotten subscribing to this thread. It is rich -- and in particular I salute you, BigBadWolf, for your very real-world comments in it. Please PM me if you care to. RWS is not bad either! IMHO, virtually all politicians are scum, and that is the...

    Right on the money, RWS. Wow, are you a writer? If not you should be.

    Churches

    A Forum member tells me Anglican churches are mostly dying out in Argentina?
