Re: The Great All-Chile Personal Attack and Insult Thread

Well, I guess not everyone think the same way I do. I know there is people that like to argue, discuss, fight, whatever you call it. I never hide from a good argument either and have strong ideas myself (usually leaning towards conservative view, less government involvement, big military, legal immi...

OMG! I made a list of the best comments here and translated to Spanish. I posted the list on my Facebook because I fined them so funny.... I offended so many of my Chilean friends!! Ups... ha ha...

Re: Free (Public) schooling in Chile

You can find a list of the best subvencionado schools if you look online, they post the ones that did their best during the year in the news paper every year.
