    The government has to take the actions are very low and buy them back. The government owns 68% of shares of Petrobras. With 30 billion the government would be full owner of the company. That would be the best way.
    Brazil has 380 billion dollars still in the United States. We have to take advantage of the high dollar now and make good use of that money, including investing heavily in yuan.

    Oh, you would love Petrobras to be government owned wouldn't you? Is that because they could hide the graft easier (you think?) or it keeps foreign investors away from Brazil?

    I have news for you sunshine, the way this is playing out NOBODY will be investing in the place when they KNOW from the world press that half their money is going into FatAss Dilma's pockets and that of the PT.

    As for having total control he is deluding himself. FatAssDilma can't leave anything alone, she always has to interfere and you can see the results right now.

    Why didn't she jump on the grafters when she was chairman? Oh, yes, it was Lula that did it so that's alright then.

    They can't afford to buy PBR. They can't even keep the water on in their most populous city!!

    I just saw on the news that most of San Paulo is going to be without water very soon. 5 days off 2 days on with a rotating schedule.

    They're doomed.

    The Guarani Aquifer is the second largest aquifer in the world. It has the capacity to supply all mankind for 100 years with potable water.
    However, the largest aquifer in the world is Alter do Chão. It has the capacity to supply all humanity with drinking water for three hundred years.

    Alter do Chão is also in Brazil, entirely. The problem of São Paulo is no water.

    7. My gosh you are so stupid. Do you even live in Brazil?

    Why don't you take us all through step by step how you get the water from either Aquifers to San Paulo before the whole city runs out. Let me tell you since I think you're too stupid to figure it out by yourself. The people who NEED WATER NOW will be long dead before a drop can get to them from those Aquifers.

    Mind Numbingly stupid.

    No movement can be done without the consent and approval of the State of São Paulo.
    Brazil is a Federation of States!

    9. As I thought you are too stupid to understand what I am saying.

    There's no immediate solution to this problem.
    It will only get worse.

    “Slander and swearing. These are the answers of the English. You are more foolish than I expected. The question is in the air ...”

    You brainless twat, you really don't get it, do you ? You refuse to admit that the PT - your heroes - screwed PB, and now you think the solution is for them to buy the rest of the shares (not 'actions') ; IF that were a possibility - which it is not - where do YOU think the money would come from ?? the taxpayer !!! and what about all the small shareholders who invested their hard-earned cash, or bought into the privatization funds in 2001 ?? these people are average Brazilians, who trusted the government, and gave them their money, and now you suggest that Dilma should tell them all to f*ck off....simple as that ! I am convinced you are one of the most stupid , ignorant idiots on this planet, but I defy you to justify your ridiculous idea....or are you just a rat ??
    Why can't you stick to the subject ? what have the two aquifers got to do with PB ??? but since you mentioned them, when they start being explored, I just hope that the PT has long been buried, otherwise they will be used politically as well.
    How profound .......was that a joint effort or just one of you spouting BS ??
