Argentine leaders throw chairs, punches in public

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) -- Argentine lawmakers pushed, punched and threw chairs at each other during a raucous session to choose the president of a northern province's lower house.

At least 10 legislators were slightly injured during the chaotic scuffle in Chaco, 620 miles (1,000 kilometers) north of the capital, Buenos Aires.

Chaco Gov. Jorge Capitanich said he regrets the violence, which broke out when officials from the governing party tried to stop opposition lawmakers from entering a session of the legislature.

I wonder if they ever reached a decision?

Can you imagine this happening in the US Senate?

Then a Hockey Game Broke out!

No Seriously that's too funny. I'd love to see the house and senate do that.
Then maybe they would actually get something done.

Oh this made me laugh so i thought i would do a quick find and post up.

In this video you will notice towards the middle that one guy could not believe that he almost lost his watch. I guess it was a Rolex so i can only assume his thoughts were along these lines....
Dudes.....relax........i almost lost my Rolex ffs...!

In the next video i some how have the feeling that they perhaps thought it may have been an orgy instead of finding solutions to problems which face normal people like you and I.

Next one is a classic, notice the FSB agent handling the situation at the balcony, to be honest, i am glad that the russians did not hand over those icbm bases

Last but not least a nice relaxing scene of politicians hard at work for the common man woman and child.

> Slayer, i guess if the same thing was to happen in the U.S. you would most likely see some serious hand guns being flashed by members of the NRA

Those videos are great.

It seems that being a law maker can be dangerous business.
