It’s Friday again!
And I’m starting to find this opening line very annoying, so soon we’ll have a contest in which readers will be able to submit what they think is the best way to open this column every week (those of you suggesting “TGIF everyone!” will be banned forever from this site), so start thinking!
In case you’re wondering: no, there’s not gonna be any prize. Whoever wins should be proud that I’ve decided to open my weekly column with something they came up with.
Oh, and also some other thing.
Last week I apparently hit a nerve with the Ultra-K’s (ultra Kirchnerites, those who blindly and violently defend the Fernández de Kirchner administration) after I strongly criticized her hypocritical and out-of-touch stance on the tragic train accident that left 51 dead.
As the pretty little army of brainwashed minions they are, they promptly released the hounds on me, calling me a fascist (that’s new), ignorant (kinda true) and a liar (now that’s crossing the line! Fuckers.)
Sorry kids, but I’m not interested in playing your game. You see, I’m not against any party (well, maybe against this one but that’s a whole different story) nor am I in favor of any other. So get over it.
And if it’s any consolation, I’m not happy about Mauricio Macri either.
Now that we’ve cleared that out and you hate me even more, this is what you need to know:
The Kirchnerite stronghold continues to show signs of fragmentation as people grow increasingly disenchanted with the Government. On top of a rampant inflation and the blatant displays of public deception, you can now add “teachers” to the long list of President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner‘s enemies. You see, last week when Cristina opened the legislative year and gave her unforgettable 195-minute speech, she complained that teachers’ organizations in several provinces had not come to an agreement on their basic salary and condemned their decision to go on strike. Making things worse, she ironically referred to them as people who “only work four hours a day and enjoy a three-month vacation every year.” As expected, teachers all over the country went apeshit and this week they went on a 48-hour strike. Salary discussions are scheduled to continue next Monday and millions of parents are hoping this conflict is solved as soon as possible. Their children, however, are not.
their 2012 International Narcotics Control Strategy Report and Argentina has the dubious honor of having the highest prevalence of cocaine use among South and Central American countries. How middle class of you, Argentina! Congrats, maybe?
You have no idea what you’re supposed to be looking at right? OK, let me help. See that round window with a white water pipe right next to it close to the upper left quadrant? (“Quadrant“? Jesus, I sound like a SWAT team). Well, if you look a little to the right of the water pipe you will see there’s a door leading into the room with the round window. Now look at that small ledge over that door. Go to the 00:01 mark and click play. See that small house cat jumping down from it onto the balcony wall? OMFG THAT’S THE PUMA!!!!
Have a great weekend everyone!
