Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

You are the one making the ridiculous accusation lumping Lavín is the same sack as Castro or Stalin, then accusing people who don't agree with you of being "dictatorship apologists". Ehm? Not with them but with their subordinates who helped to maintain their regimes. Meanwhile, Pinochet is in the s...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

Welcome then, it's quite peaceful here. :) I'm also trying to limit checking the news to only once in 5-7 days because the last 6 months have been quite a ride. Following developing news exhausts the mind too much compared to reading a summary on the weekend.

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

That means Lavin must have been at most 34 when he wrote it, he's now 66. That's worth keeping in mind. He may not believe whatever is in there any more (then again, there is also a chance that the book will cover what he still believes, but prefers people not to know). His age doesn't matter, he's...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

That's bold of him to say considering he tore the country apart and gifted the pieces to his friends. 🤔 Lavin hasn't changed, otherwise he'd quit UDI a long time ago. And yes, Pinochet is bad, Guzman is bad and people directly associated with them shouldn't be present in the government. I'm not even...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

UDI is a party created by Pinochet and their only goal is to protect his legacy. The rest of UDI are also unacceptable for me for exactly this reason. RN and especially Evópoli are a completely different case. We are lucky to have somebody like Briones right now. Why do you always glue together peop...

That doesn't mean anything.
He's literally in a Pinochetista political party called UDI. He wrote a book “Una Revolución Silenciosa” to praise Pinochet's policies.

Re: iHerb shipping

Does anybody know a place to get a vitamin recipe online? I found RedSalud's telemedicine but it's CL $18,000 which is expensive compared to the total order price.

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

Sure, being in direct contact with Guzman himself is the same as receiving a stupid t-shirt. As much as I roll my eyes at Boric's stupid actions, I'd take him over a UDI member any day.

Also "haters", oh my, some people hating murderous psychopaths! Who would expected this turn of events. 😃

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

They've been putting him on TV (in "matinales") non-stop, more than any other mayor. In other words, laundering one more Pinochet's collaborator with some freshly manufactured consent.

fake news sites funded to push a political agendas.
After following a bit of CNN, MSNBC, NYT and WaPo during the dem primaries in the US, I can say they fit this description too. What I've seen was as bad as Russian state media.

Not sure if there's any decent news source left. Maybe The Onion...
