I do not recall the following be addressed: Can a Chilean citizen who is not a resident of Chile, who does not have a current Chilean driving licence, legally use a non-Chile driving licence to drive in Chile? My family's situation: - My Chilean citizen wife ceased being a Chilean resident, now live...

Re: FATCA repeal introduced to the house of reps

Just to put it "on the record":
I am being harrassed about FATCA reporting by an Australian bank despite providing evidence I ceased being a US citizen six years ago.

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

Would you buy a car built by "I-don't-give-a-shit-about-quality-workmanship" Chileans? Yes, why not? To be honest this constant shitting on everything Chilean feels tiresome. Especially considering that you has already left for the righteous Anglo country where everything is perfect. You're right. ...

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

Yeah, right! In your dreams (under ANY administration)!
Would you buy a car built by "I-don't-give-a-shit-about-quality-workmanship" Chileans?

Maybe it would work if they hired only immigrants.

Re: The State of the States

. . . and the value of USD will drop like a stone. And perhaps, the US will no longer be able to afford its warmongering and destabilization foreign policy.

Admin

Your suggestions regarding immigration are too logical, sane, rational . . . will reduce the number of "snouts in the trough", and reduce the power of the bureaucrats . . . therefore it will never be adopted . . . no matter how beneficial it would be to the country.

Re: Bargain Hunter(s) Read This

It is all Obama's fault in pulling budget off defense allocation, thus encountering these abnormal incidents. I disagree. Basic seamanship, piloting and navigation does not require a high budget, just competence. How many other navies and/or commercial operators are grounding their vessels or in co...

Re: Bargain Hunter(s) Read This

There are many redundant systems on an Air Warfare Destroyer which could have alerted ship 'operators' to the danger. None of them are subject to "hacks". Though I do not know the intimate details of designs of each component, my expectation is that none (or almost none) have chips which would be af...
