Stupid Americans, Stupid Argentinos

I saw two things in La Capital today that really ticked me off. OK there is always a lot in the news to be ticked off at but these two really got to me because they show stupidity can be found in both of the countries I love.

First, An American couple, living near Miami, paid U$S 155,000 to clone their dog!!!! These idiots have more money than brains. Imagine how many kids could be fed for this amount of money. No wonder the world thinks so lowly of Americans. This really disgusts me. I lost my dog after 12 years and I cried for days afterwards but I would never, for an instant, thinking of doing something this stupid.

Second, Except for being a great futbol player, Diego Maradona has been a disaster. Now he compounds his errors by giving wholehearted support to the Dictatorship of Hugo Chavez, the Clown of Caracas. Diego, por favor, coach our national team and get the hell out of international politics, of which you know absolutely nothing.

  5. Hey mark, I'm at the Holiday INN (just ask for me, I don't want to post my rm number) until May...up for some golf or a beer at O'Connels?..thanx again for the ride home from RGC...Dave Wells

  6. Take it from a Rosarino: This city is the biggest piece of garbage there is. Crime is out of control, healthcare is awful, education non-existent and most people have two-faces.
    Argentina in general will chew you up and spit you without mercy. You still probably don't understand because you are a foreigner, but eventually you'll see what I mean.
    At least you have a choice. Best of luck. Sergio
