All tuckered out from Pope play, President Poopy Pants falls fast asleep

Joe Biden visited the Pope. Politicians do this. The meetings are of course carefully scripted so that nothing controversial occurs, such as the Pope reminding the visitor that according to Church doctrine and scientific opinion a fetus is a living creature and the species is homo sapiens.

But political instability and recurrent bouts of socialism and oppressive regulations choked off the economy. Argentina has now deteriorated to the status of an undeveloped country. Inflation runs rampant, politics are unstable and corruption is everywhere.

This is what shaped Bergoglio’s views. The form of capitalism he saw was something we would describe as, at best, “cronyism.”
