25 de Mayo -- Independence Day, Revolution Day

It is impressive on this Independence day (there are two here), the Argentine federal government is spending lots of money on online Google and YouTube ads.  Presumably they get charged at the official exchange rate, meaning they are twice as expensive.

The ads from the government are always the same. They look cheap, with text on the screen as a voice narrates.  Basically like a PowerPoint slide. 

All this on a day when Google announced, "Google Play will no longer be able to accept payments on behalf of developers registered in Argentina starting June 27, 2013."  Google even suggests that developers move their account to another country.

Unfortunately the same old story for Argentina: a corrupt leftist government screwing things up.
