    Mujica calls Argentines “swindlers”

    'Middle class' doesn't mean median. Anyone who owns something as simple as a house already owns more than a 'grand total of thirty thousand dollars in assets.' Frugal doesn't mean poor, it just means someone who doesn't like to spend money. Far too many senile fellows on here.

    Mujica calls Argentines “swindlers”

    What on earth are you even talking about? Uruguay greatly improved under his tenure, especially for the working class you're talking about. And the article you linked notes he never sold his beetle. You're going senile mate, I can't believe you seriously believe having a farm, a couple of...

    Mujica calls Argentines “swindlers”

    Has he ever said that he's poor? He's called 'frugal', not poor. And not by himself. Everyone already knows that poor people don't own decently sized farms.

    Mujica calls Argentines “swindlers”

    3 tractors that cost $35,000 and a small farm is not "billions". Anyone who worked on a reasonable salary their whole life could afford that by the time they're Mujicas age. The idea that it's dishonorable for him to have some assets is utterly ludicrous.

    It's not like Mujica sets the prices. Colonia is also a tourist trap and everything costs double!

    Mujica calls Argentines “swindlers”

    Are you surprised that an old man who worked his entire life has some assets?

    Why are the Ramones so huge in Argentina?

    Might just be a youth thing, cus it's really noticeable among the under 35-40 crowd.

    Why are the Ramones so huge in Argentina?

    They're everywhere, probably the most popular and well known non-Argentine band. I've never met near as many fanatics for them as I have here.

    Visa/Residency advice - Student Visa, citizenship, forming a S.A.

    DNU 70/2017 only says that transitoria is revocable at the discretion of migration authorities, nothing about criminal punishment.

    Visa/Residency advice - Student Visa, citizenship, forming a S.A.

    If you apply for a tourist visa extension while your visa is still in force you are doing absolutely nothing remotely illegal. There is no legal enforcement on what you can do on a tourist visa beside the inability to work - if you choose to live in one place the entire time, that's perfectly...

    Visa/Residency advice - Student Visa, citizenship, forming a S.A.

    Unless you were asked why you wanted to enter and you lied saying 'tourism' I don't see how it could possibly be a charge that would ever hold up in court.

    Visa/Residency advice - Student Visa, citizenship, forming a S.A.

    A visa run where one is accepted into the country can't be a crime, it's a totally regular status. A crime would be overstaying the visa or entering illegally.

    Bajo always sounds borderline insane with these weird rants about 'Islamic law' and 'medieval law', but then he's also destroying these regressive laws in court and has helped countless people get citizenship, so I don't even know what to think

    The Spanish classes at UBA qualify you for the 3 month visa. I emailed them about this last year and they said they have a lot of experience helping out with the visas etc.

    Visa/Residency advice - Student Visa, citizenship, forming a S.A.

    I should add that this is the same advice I received from 2 different immigration lawyers. They advised me to look for a regular job, apply for citizenship, or simply hope that new categories are added soon. If you want to go the student visa route, the 3 month renewable visa for studying...
