No, that also happens there?????
For a minute I thought you lived in the United States
Do you get free phones too?
Our president went there last week .. she was at NY and gave some conferences where she was "attacked" by some Argentinians studends in Harvard. She was't attacked, but she always answer what she wants. If something bothers her then she escapes the question and say something different pretending she had responded.
Something funny was when they (TV) said she wears in the most exclusive shops.. $25.000 bag. And Obama's woman (1st Lady) wears in a common shop. Is that true? Or was an Invent from our local TV to make she look bad. That hasa reason is supossed that USA 1st Lady will wear most expensive than my country presindent since I hate to admit but USA is a world power against Argentina. And is supossed she is more $$$$ Wealthy.. but my president is wealthy.. legit or non-legit.. that's the thing I don't like.
Tere is a big fight here between Goverment who want to control all the information (they already giving . information, for example Inflation....) and Clarin which is the biggest media company here. Goverment doesn't like them because they are against them and as they are so popupar and massive Goverment can't hide the truth sometimes. If we were informed by goverment it would be a dissaster.. Everything is pretty expensive. Taxes goes up. Salaries also goes up but not as fast as product prices and taxes. Technology importation has a 30% charge (there was an excuse of product national things). But what with things not produced here??? So buy hardware is pretty expsnvie. I bought my main rig for 1800 dollar 2 year ago when there was no problem for buying dollars. It was like $7500. It was a decent month salary. Nowadays they say you can "survive" a day with $6. HAHAHAHHAHA You can't even buy a crapin sandwitch with $6.... And a lot of more bad things.
Dollar is $4,7 but u can't buy, it is forbidden unless you present A LOT of papers demonstrating you're having a trip to another country. The only way to buy dollar is from non-official sources and it is $5-6... crapin expensive. I'm not saing that is bad because we have to take care of our economy butThe crapin president and his crapin gang is full of dollars and they spend a lot but the normal citizens do not have rights to buy!
The only good thing she has done was reclaim YPF which the biggest petrol company in Argentina. It was like 50% belonging to Spain. Now is 100% from us, and because that Spain .. well they are kinda angry but I don't give a BEEP
The country is pretty divided right now. Perhaps social networks made it more visible but I have never seen it. Or you are with president or you are against, there is no like middle term. That sucks..
