    About that new "Soy Dollar"

    In case you missed it, the government has created a new "Soy Dollar" exchange rate, to encourage the agro producers to sell their crop, because the government really desperately needs the money...

    The train to San Luis is back

    I'm not clear whether there hasn't been any train to San Luis for all this time, (that would seem unlikely), or whether this is some special train, but I'm all in favor of developing the rail net. The part about the video that amuses me is the contrast between the chrome-dome transport minister...

    Social Security TODAY?

    Bank just notified me that my SS check hit my account two days early. I'm guessing because it's 4th of July weekend, Muchachos Garcias Uncle Sam. I know he doesn't love me, but it's nice that he's reliable with the payments anyhow. Same same anybody else?

    José Luis Espert asked to imprison or shoot the Mapuches

    Folks in this particular subreddit tend to be a touch on the conservative side to begin with, but when it comes to the subject of the Mapuche, they go overboard. To be honest, I have yet to hear any argentino say anything sympathetic about the Mapuche. Now, I'm not passing judgement. Just...

    Inflation here and there

    I will apologize for posting a video from Fox. It's Tucker, who is the least offensive of their hosts, and I have cued it up to the meaningful part, skipping the first two minutes of political BS. The part I have cued up is pretty much all numbers on inflation and costs. I am amused at the...
