    Unemplyment of this scale is no surprise at all given the utter mismanagement of the economy by The Liar Mantega and DumbAss Dilma PLUS the on-going corruption which seems to pervade all aspects of the economy.

    Where this is going to end is anyone's guess but it will undoubtedly be very harmful to what is left of the economy.

    “Unemployment in recession deep Brazil climbed to 8.7% of active population in the quarter ending last August, the government said Thursday. ”

    8.7% of the economically 'active' population...add to that another 14 million families, or 47 million people, 28 million of which are of working age, all sponging off the Bolsa familia, and you get a far better feeling of the shit Brazil is in....To try to balance the 2016 budget, fat D has made deep cuts into public health, education and infrastructure investments, but not the Bolsa Família. Great strategy to build a strong economy.

    “but not the Bolsa Família.”

    Just the same in Uruguay.

    It seems that the countries with these schemes are shit scared of reducing them, nevermind cancelling the programme itself because the stinking poor will riot.

    And that will be the first day in their wasted lives that they have “worked”.

    While there are a variety reasons attributable to current economic malaise. Is it your view that those who are the most vulnerable, and whom are no way responsible for recession should be blamed. Meanwhile what will you do with this inconvenient document?
    Brazilian Constitution: CHAPTER II - SOCIAL RIGHTS
    Article 6. Education, health, work, leisure, security, social security, protection of motherhood and childhood, and assistance to the destitute, are social rights, as set forth by this Constitution.
    So your claim of “She has committed offences which the Constitution considers criminal” must be a lie because you cannot validate it.

    “the asshole on #4 must be poor.....and ignorant.”

    And “brainless”!

    And he has no experience of the stinking poor in Uruguay.

    First, they DO stink and it's awful when you are in a queue with them;
    Second, they never worked at school and the majority of them left at the age of 15 (they need permission for this and it is rarely denied - they WANT them out);
    Third, they never do a days work from that point forward, just like their parents.

    And that's the problem, they have no role model that does work, etc.

    Now you have implicitly expressed your opposition to the Brazilian Constitution, and libeled the President. So your claims of “She(Rousseff) has committed offences which the Constitution considers criminal”; and ”is an impeachable offence(sic)” must be a lie because you cannot validate either of them. Moreover, you have confirmed it was a deliberate libel, otherwise you would demonstrate the proof of your assertions; or alternatively have the civility to apologize for your mistakes. 8,10 Jack Bauer; http://en.mercopress.com/2015/10/18/rousseff-s-reelection-campaign-alleged-irregularities-investigated-by-federal-police

    So you cannot refute the obvious that your claims of “She(Rousseff) has committed offences which the Constitution considers criminal”; and ”is an impeachable offence(sic)” must be a lie. But you are unable too even man-up and concede that you've lost the issue. So you can go through all the personal pirouettes you wish it doesn't change a thing you've lost, and your posts reveals much more about yourselves than we really need to know.

    Don't flatter yourself you and Tweedledum are very much peripheral to what is important, which is the issues themselves. Additionally, its great running interference on a couple of fascists like you two bozo's, and exposing your views as having absolutely no factual basis what so ever. What I do is provide proofs, while you just run your mouth-off. So please enlighten me by naming one issue where you're able too substantiate what you've claimed?

    @14 ChrisR
    have you realized that Twinkle Toes has repeated the same paragraph in just about every one of his posts over the last two weeks ? see below :

    ”....your claims of “She(Rousseff) has committed offences which the Constitution considers criminal”; and ”is an impeachable offence(sic)” must be a lie.”....

    Absolutely useless trying to discuss anything serious with the socialist twat ; he is so naive that he believes in Dilma's and Lula's innocence (until proven guilty, over and over again !!) despite the fact that Dilma was (and still is ) surrounded by corrupt politicians (including some of her ministers who are currently facing criminal charges), whom she refuses to fire because she thinks they can protect her...
    And he still thinks that the PT, being the 2nd largest political party in Brazil, is a “minority” party. With that logic, even the PMDB, the largest party, is also a minority party because they, alone, they don't have the majority in Congress either.....
    TT should go and inflate, or blow, one of his (male) dolls.....at least he'd keep his blubber lips occupied.

    Thanks for absolutely confirming the accuracy of my posts, hero. It must be great lurking in the shadows of your internet cave where you can cowardly cast aspersions against, those whom you would never have courage to do so in public. Thereby, avoiding the issue of you're perpetrating inaccuracies.
    I wouldn't want you to think I wasn't paying attention, but frankly I've had more interesting bowel movements.
    Can you die of constipation? I am a little concerned how full of shit you are.
    People who think they know it all really annoy those of us who do.

    @17 Twinkle Toes
    I've confirmed zilch of your posts, but if it makes you happy to think so, it's your problem.
    “...shadows of your internet cave ” etc....too childish and stupid to comment on .....

    Plain to see that you think you are a fantastic person, and also that you are “Better at sex than anyone” ....don't you ? the fact that your inflatable dolls never complain when you can't get the wrinkes out of your limp noodle, is what gives you this impression... they just fart when you squeeze them, and you think that's a sign of contentment.......Twinkle Toe's fantasy world.
