    For a man who knows NOTHING about housekeeping, this is rich.

    He says keep building new rooms on your house at a time when you have no money.

    Brasil is just learning to live on credit; the developed world understands acutely the problems this brings.
    Lula would be advised to heed the lessons of the developed world; the more credit Brasil and SA engage, the more they risk the same problems.

    Try learning, not preaching.

    ach Geoff idiot darwinist, spare yourself the time of typing BS. This man did more than what you have accomplished in your lifetime, but only a buffoon (yes you) won't admit that, because you can't. It doesn't fit with your ideology.

    “the developed world understands acutely the problems this brings.”

    Here you go again with your stupidity and arrogance. The so called developed world isn't capable of fixing the problem because they work for the criminals who created the problem. Again..only a buffoon (yes you again) doesn't know/understand that.

    There is noting wrong with using credits, but it's the instruments that were made so complex by the banksters to trade them, created this mess.

    Try to learning and not preaching yourself. Look in the mirror how ugly you are to face reality of your stupidity. Oh wait, you can't. You're to dumb to do that.

    Fido,
    do explain what you mean by Darwinist.
    I spent some happy years learning about then teaching Darwinism, and I think you may be using the term in an unusual sense.
    Perhaps you are confusing Darwinism with Social Darwinism or Neoliberalism. Maybe it means something in the language of 'Banksterism' or perhaps you are just having a 'dialectical moment'.

    Any way, it feels good to have an ´ology´ even if it is an ideology.
    Do you have an ideology too?

    I´m glad you have learned the word Buffoon.
    I knew if I used it often enough when talking about Lula, you would learn its meaning.

    Again, ´nothing wrong with credit´ but it helps if you have the ability to pay both the principal AND the interest.
    So many people here (and elsewhere) have never been taught about the word 'compound'. I guess you know the significance of this word!
