    1 USD = 2.02433 BRL as of 18.00 on 2012/09/21 UYU time.

    So it's HALF-A-TRILLION USD at best.

    Fanciful comparisons of a SECTOR of Brasil with other countries such as Mexico is just laughable.

    We can however see the drag of the poor masses in Brasil impinges on the aspirations for the country by these 'government analysts'.

    Frankly it's like me saying if my aunty had bollocks she would be my uncle. It's as meaningless as that.

    “Frankly it's like me saying if my aunty had bollocks she would be my uncle. It's as meaningless as that.”

    And meaningless as your ( a clown that claims to live in Uruguay and can't even speak one word of Spanish) comments with your opinions and so called facts based from “web” research.

    @5 Fidi Dildo

    So, let's get this right.

    Are you accusing me of not living in Uruguay?

    @8 British_Kirchnerist

    I have never questioned your claims of living in Scotland once you responded to my original challenge, did you not see my other post disagreeing that you were aliased with one of the Malvanistas?

    Dildo always resorts to verbal abuse when he has lost the argument. He is not questioning where I live but attempting to goad me, which is why I replied with a question which he has not resonded to.

    Although I have stated you cannot be an AG troll because of the level and command of English, that does not preclude me from thinking poorly of you for you irrational support of such a despotic government and your frankly juvenile thoughts about TMBOA.
