    Do they count robbing and muggings as financial transactions?
    No matter how they spin it, the poor Brazilian taxpayer's are dumping money into Fifa's dirty hands.

    2. You should learn that if the Gov't feels it necessary to put out a propaganda video saying all is well
    It is not all well

    So how much did Brazil spend to get a U$3B return? Seem like a pretty small return on the face of it.

    How much of that 3.03bln will go in the pockets of the corrupt government officials and how much in the pockets of the criminal fraterity?

    I was born and live in Brazil. And do you mean to tell me that I'm wrong when I talk about my country?

    You are a rabid crazy!

    5. You are blinded by nationalism. Your posts of propaganda filled You Tube videos are an embarrassment. I have a feeling you don't even realize how stupid they make you look.
    I've been to Brazil a couple times, it is the 3rd world filled with slum dwellers, robbers and hookers. I have no desire to ever return.
    Brazilians that are halfway motivated to have a better life or choose not to be corrupt end up moving to the UK or USA illegally.

    I prefer the Brazilian rain forest; or the raw plantation rum... it was much less dangerous than the populated areas. But, even with all that predictive stuff, give them a chance. We might be surprised; but there are forebodings.
