    Western Union money transfer

    Looking at this a bit more - the time periods are being 'modified' not imposed-they are actually easing the current time restrictions- and the transaction size limit of 50K is per bank account (down from 100K; and the affect parties undoubtedly have 100s of accounts) - So this is almost...

    Western Union money transfer

    My quick, hot take here, jBlaze: From reading some of the materials, this won't directly affect Western Union transfers. These restrictions won't apply to any transactions outside the jurisdiction controlled by Argentina. WU transfers officially take place in one of the caribbean islands...

    English teachers needed?

    So, I've never done or said anything seditious against any government on earth. But if I were, hypothetically speaking, to do so here, would I be put in a confined prison space with lots of straight, masculine Argentine men? Oh my. Let me fan myself while I catch my breath. The thought is...

    English teachers needed?

    $800,000 cash in a suitcase from Hugo Chavez to fund Kirchner's campaign in 07? Millions in K-Money embezzled from the people of Argentina for personal gain? Seems like foreign interference and 'sedition' to me. Apparently, sedition is a pre-requisite to become vice president!! oh and don't...

    English teachers needed?

    I'm not sure as a Brit, I would come here to teach English. Argentine people still remember the Malvinas war every year. Those wounds don't seem to heal Which is ironic, because if there was another Malvinas invasion, the Argentines would be much better off. and by another Malvinas...

    Argentina suspends beef exports for 30 days

    I guess I could just build myself a scale and grow some tomatoes if I want them, but why should I make the effort? After all, all I have to do is pretend that I am weak, helpless and totally incompetent.. and the corrupt politicians will offer to steal things from hard working people, and...

    But I want cheap tomatoes and a free scale! I will vote for whichever candidate promises to nationalize that evil company and gives me a free scale; and promises to impose provincial tomato export restrictions so I can have cheap tomatoes in my village. Afterall, why shouldn't I have a free...

    Argentina suspends beef exports for 30 days

    Did Reddit Argentina claim to be a "paragon of good taste and objective scholarly debate"? How smug and condescending.

    Argentina suspends beef exports for 30 days

    I was referencing the quoted remark by toongeorges, not the initial event topic of the thread. I believe I even "quoted" toongeorges remark. Sometimes conversation flow happens that way. Toongeorges got it; and he/she/ze replied appropriately. If you think my snark about the Argentine...

    Problem Travellers Going to Europe With Sputnik Vaccination

    So the EU has quality standards to ensure the safety and efficacy of drugs/vaccines. Companies A,B,C, and D all went through the safety trials and quality tests to get approval. Company E did not engage in the safety trials and efficacy tests to gain approval. Country A decides to buy Company...

    Argentina suspends beef exports for 30 days

    I certainly wasn't using the US as a shining example. I also didn't claim that democracy wasn't better than the alternatives. I was making a more subtle, sophisticated point than you are 'straw manning' me out to be. Let me simplify: Mandatory voting + meat payoffs = bad voting outcomes.

    Argentina suspends beef exports for 30 days

    Yes, sir. I was being sarcastic. In most democracies, voting is voluntary and only those who care - turn out to vote. When voting is mandatory and not voting is a punishable offense, all the idiots turn out to vote....like the ones who can be swayed on how to vote with cheap meat...

    Argentina suspends beef exports for 30 days

    Lets make voting mandatory in a country full of uneducated, superstitious masses of people - steeped in bitterness and resentment of success. Lets appeal to their worst instincts and enact pre-Ricardian economic policies that makes people 'feel' good while sending them all back to the 1700s...

    Argentina suspends beef exports for 30 days

    I am in a rural, agricultural province. I hope the local governor bans exports of produce to other provinces to keep the price of fruit and veg low here. You know...to fight local/regional inflation. You 'big city folk' need to grow your own damn food. Quit your stupid advanced tech jobs...
