    Think what needs to be done with the economy of Brazil and DumbAss Dilma will do the opposite because the reality will be too much for the PT to understand and FAR too much for DAD to accept.

    Progression of collapse is Venezuela, then Argentina then Brazil

    @5 Captain,
    The Olympics in 2016, although brough to Brazil by the corrupt Lula and the PT, is a commitment taken on by the City of Rio de Janeiro. I don't doubt that the Federal government will have its fingers in the pie, but basically it's a problems of the “cariocas”.....good luck to them....and to the foreign tourists who are foolish enough to travel to Rio for the Games.
