    marianozwan, I agree with you, but right now there's an unravelling of something that we haven't seen since the great depression. This has very serious consequences on you & me & our families anywhere on this mud ball. It does deserve some careful scrutiny, let's see who's really running the...

    Argentina's history of anti-semitism

    Hi Les, "Cant read" or can't grasp? Your initial comment about everyone 'being right' brought some light hearted comedy into this serious discussion. don't take it the wrong way but you need to understand what's being discussed here before you slap a 'disgusting' label on it all. The topic...

    .... my bit of advice for you today is... perhaps you should pick a better day to go waving your flag & tossing stones. Just a suggestion only. Why does Bernard Madoff evoke record-breaking resentment? Hollywood figures snared in Bernard...

    Argentina's history of anti-semitism

    Why don't you talk about the lobby that owns hollywood & wall st instead? Why don't you ask those people in the USA who live in tents what they think about the 'special interest groups' who make up the overwhelming majotiry that controls world finance? Take your stale propaganda somewhere else.

    Argentina - Racism?

    Good point, and I guess what I meant to say is that in these 'other places' you already have the racial/ethnic/cultural problem to start with, & when you add the 'economic migration' factor into it then it's 'nasty' like a match to gasoline. Maybe Argentina doesn't share the same 'high voltage...

    Argentina - Racism?

    Ebay import tax & duties

    A clarification about my last post above & some more details: Regarding that %60. Roughly speaking, if the on-line cost is $100... then you add %60 of the $100 and add it on top giving you the total of = $160 (or more - depending on the type of item) The other little nasty I found out was...

    Ebay import tax & duties

    Hi everyone, Thanks so much for the replies! I really appreciate it. It boils down to the following, you pay roughly %60 or more of the cost of what ever you buy online. This is depressing me very quickly. I don't like this kind of control. Thanks for the feedback. I cut & pasted the info...
