URUGUAY AND HOLLAND FOR A PLACE IN THE FINAL FOR WORLD CUP SOCCER 2010 SOUTH AFRICA


Hoy antes del partido entre Uruguay y Holanda por la Copa Mundial de Futbol Sudafrica 2010,querida celeste escribo esto:
un pais pequeño, con solo 3 millones de habitantes, hoy esta cuarto entre los mejores del mundo, fuimos los que una vez ya te recibimos en 1928, 1930 y en 1950 “Maracanazo” cuando en Brasil nadie esperaba dimos la vuelta un resultado y salimos Campeones del Mundo, ese recuerdo siempre quedo en todos y talves en lugar de ayudarnos, nos estanco, porque quedamos viviendo de los recuerdos, que son buenos los recuerdos, pero siempre debemos seguir luchando para conseguir nuevas hazañas.

Hoy hemos logrado despues de 40 años, estar entre los 4 primeros del Mundo, ya hemos logrado mas de lo que esperabamos, y seguimos soñando, no se como saldra este partido frente a Holanda, pero sea cual sea el resultado, la mayor de las ganancias la tenemos, lo conseguimos, nos hemos superado a nosotros, mejoramos, decidimos luchar y poner nuestra ” garra charrua “ , en pos de un nuevo sueño.

TRAFFICKING OF WEAPONS FROM URUGUAY TO BRAZIL

saul feldmanSometimes tragic events are used by politicians to seek political mileage, I at least do not find meaning in it, not think about the pain of the families, friends, work colleagues, the lives that are lost.


This has happened in Uruguay, during the political campaign, in the runoff, which will be held on 29 November between two opposing visions, from the right formula comprised of white party Luis Lacalle and Jorge Larranaga and in the other corner, representing the Broad Front, currently in power, with groups from the socialist left as the most ultra-left groups that shaped the urban guerrilla Tupamaros, with the formula for Jose “Pepe” Mujica y Danilo Astori.

It happens in a house fire, that there would be nothing surprising, so the police sent a police man and a woman police to tell the landlord what had happened was right, had to give notice, but Here comes the tragedy, the police never imagining that the owner of that house accountant Saul Feldam , had much to hide, knocks on the door when they open the door and tells him what happened, the counter Feldman enters his house and fired from within against the police, who died while being taken to the police hospital.
that entrenchment occurs counter Saul Feldman, who for hours against the police firing, the geo panel that when he felt that he was hurt Feldman entered to see him and Feldman was dead by the time the police are about geo group shoots and kills him.

Towards the hours passed the day, with the hidden population to hurt them no bullet, police, geo group, military group attacked the house, throwing tear gas, which no one knew is that the morphine was injected Feldman which also allows you to put up with him suddenly heridasy also lose some of their mental capabilities at the time when injected continuously.

Accountant Saul Feldman, was in terminal stage of cancer, so he did not have much to lose, his death was assured, so resisted until a police bullet or by his own hand, not yet have confirmation,  conclude with his life.

But the most amazing was when the police entered, they had never imagined what they would find an arsenal of weapons, some 600 weapons of various types from FAL, AK47 and pistols Glok, also propelled grenades and rockets, also grenades, handguns, explosives military kevlar vests and gas masks, which are presumed to be those used in the war on drug trafficking in the Brazilian favelas.
Also found gold bullion, which is the way that drug traffickers pay the weapons are bought on the black market.

THE RESULTS OF VOTING POLLS IN URUGUAY

Uruguayan voting has ended with a new spin on 29 November 2009, the Frente Amplio has lost some of its members and did not get the 50% plus one he needed in the first round to achieve the presidency, they get only the 47%, according to political analysts, the reason the Frente Amplio lose votes, is that many people who vote for the Frente Amplio party, do not accept that the presidency be a former Tupamaro as Jose Mujica, which means the far left.
Meanwhile, the White Party, with the formula de Lacalle and Larranaga, reached 30%, compared with previous elections and the predictions of political polls, also lost votes because in the previous election had reached 36%, while the Colorado Party was the big winner, with the formula for Bordaberry and De Leon, managed to raise the meager votes that had been made at the last election, 10% to this year 2009 to reach 18%.

The formula consists of Bordaberry – De Leon, and said to back the white party in the November runoff, which if you add the two figures come to 49% may exceed the Broad Front or making the next election is much more tight, making the votes of the undecided or those who voted in this election on October 25 to other parties as an independent party, have to make a difference who wins.

In the runoff “ballotage”, the votes will be made of a simple majority to win the presidency of Uruguay.

As for the plebiscite, neither approved nor rejecting the application of the law of impunity for the military or the plebiscite ballot to make it possible for Uruguayans abroad to vote (voto letters).

In November 2009, finally we will decide who the next president of the Uruguayans.

BEGAN THE OPENING OF POLLS FOR VOTING, THE FIRST VOTES ARE COMING TO LIGHT, WE WILL HAVE A PRESIDENT TODAY OR WE WILL GO FOR A BALLOTAGE ?

 

Today Sunday 25 October 2009, at the Oriental Republic of Uruguay, we have elections, president, vice president and parliament, also taken by vote in referendums two proposals: the vote of Uruguayans abroad, and the law expiration, which would not allow that many who participated in the dictatorship send to trial.

Candidates who have more opportunity are: Jose “Pepe” Mujica, a former Tupamaro that he can be considered by some as a former hijacker, a former murderer, a former bank robberies to raise money for the cause of the Tupamaros, a senator of the republic , a politician looking camper, colloquial speech, presented by the Frente Amplio, political party that supports the power now.

And Luis Alberto Lacalle, the “Kookie” by the White Party, the former president during his term saw the banking crisis, accused of being drunk, to participate in what is the bankruptcy of banks innercia when he was president of the Republic .

In the first round, to be elected president has to obtain 50% plus one of total votes in the event that no party wins that amount of votes, must go to “ballotage”(runoff), runoff would be in November this year.

It was an hour and a half for the closing of the polling stations, and the first count daran prospects, who will be the president of Uruguay or if there is runoff.

The truth about the possibilities the only thing that I wish for my beloved country, Uruguay, dear God help us and free us and protect us because they all have a background that makes you want to mourn, we expect these next five years?
