Re: Best way to cover yourself when using laborers

Gee, Rudder.

Sure wouldn't want to be in your moccasins.

Re: Peru helping to Venezuela

Here's an interesting look at other South American countries and their opinions on the Venezuelan exodus.
It doesn't mention Paraguay or Uruguay so I'm assuming they have a zero tolerance policy.

The multiple distillations of pisco raise the alcohol content, which Chilean distillers can then lower with the addition of water.
