    Marina Silva tonight pledged her votes completely to Aecio Neves.

    So those voting President Dilma will continue to do so, those voting for Aecio Neves will do so once again, but the majority of those who voted for Marina Silva will swing the vote for Aecio Neves to win.

    This evening we watched the two Petrobras songbirds on National television singing about how normal it was to skim 3 % or more from each and every Petrobras contract.

    So much for me, so much to the PT, and all in the millions, and all so normal an occurrence.

    Not in Veja magazine, Fbear, but on national television. Rest assured the PF is on it investigating. I suspect this is just the beginning, and only the tip of the iceberg.

    There is perhaps hope for “the country of the future” will finally decide to embrace the present. Time to ditch the old hag in Buenos Aires and the bus driver to seek the world. I'm certain Paraguay will accept, and hopefully a new middle Uruguayan government.

    If Neves does win and manages to carry out reforms within Brazil there will be great social upheaval when the idle bastards in the unions realise they will have to work for a living.

    That will be a novel experience.

    @1 BOTINHO
    Am hoping what you wrote comes to be. I agree that the corruption , by the PT, that we've seen so far, is only the tip of the iceberg. The two 'songbirds' you refer to, have both confirmed the same thing, which is that what went on inside Petrobrás, is happening in all the other State run companies as well, involving several Ministries...

    You can be sure that if Aécio wins, he'll have ahead of him, the monumental task of rooting out the corrupt petistas from the several layers of government, and will have to deal with social groups who will not like the idea that they'll have to work for a living, all of them created by the PT to harrass previous governments and which now, not even the PT can control.

    The main obstacle in the way of beating her is the low intelectual level of the majority of voters, who aren't smart enough to realize that Aécio will not do away with 'social conquests' of the poorer classes, and the outright lies that PT spread about the opposition in all their political rallies ...1 week to find out...
