Re: Farm land.

well for all of you that felt left out of the property tax party, brace for impact. Thanks to the high-profile natue of Pinera's screw-up with his own property, it looks like the chilean IRS suddendly is motivated to reasses property taxes all across the country, especially on rural properties it ha...

Now, once you step out of the car, a respirator and a space suit perhaps. :lol:

Re: Argentina power outage

FYI, my take on the NY times "revelation" regarding the russian grid is, what the hell has the NSA been waisting all its time and money on for 40+ years if it has not already breached the infrastructure of russia completly? spending billions of dollars, each, to kill a bunch of illiterate guys livin...
