    Part of this collapse is cyclical but so was the last decade when they should have been saving money instead of handing it out to the slum dwellers.

    This won't end well.

    Cyclical, eh? Is that annually or every month?

    Cyclical would indicate an underlying characteristic of the economy that was unmanageable by the governemt.

    What DumbAss Dilma, The Super Crook Lula, and the rest of the crooks in the PT have done is very simple to understand: they have systematically robbed the country blind. Nothing to do with cyclical changes at all.

    Morte de Lula em 2015! You know it makes sense!

    You must have some connection with the CIA. But we are monitoring the movements of spies carefully here. Including already killed three of them.

    The BReal is dropping like a rock. I am kind of surprised they're not using reserves to support it. They must think the recession is going to be worse than they are admitting and they need the inflation to boost it up.

    Dark days ahead.

    I do not believe. Do you sure about that?

    I thought it was real good less valued for our exports. I thought I could give more competitiveness to our domestic tourism.

    Do not you think so?

    Who is “WE” Brasshole, there are far more people in Brazil that would want to come to your house and do away with the likes of you...
    Brainwashed dimwit Brasshole, if Brazil wants to be competitive the Real has a long way to fall yet...

    It is great to have a forum, that allows all of us to interchange
    ideas. But let's try not to use that kind of language (f*ck you all ....)
    We all can agree and disagree...... with tolerance.
    Have a good night !!

    @4. Lovely video. Why isn't there a section on corruption? Is that a field called 'Lulu'? In honour of who got paid off most?

    Why didn't you comment on Stupid response machine on the blink? Do note that Barusco only made an estimate based on contracts he'd received. What about all the others? Read on a little bit and Barusco is going to return $97 million. That's nearly half the total $200 million. Dilma was Minister for Energy. Perfectly placed. Also well accustomed to thieving from her terrorist days. And Lulu put her in place! Isn't it 54 under investigation? So the real figure is going to be at least $5.4 billion. Slice 1 to Lulu. Slice 2 to Dilma. And I doubt they'd be satisfied with less than $200 million apiece. Curious how all those already identified say Lulu and Dilma knew nothing. Didn't take long for them to be identified, did it? And Lulu and Dilma couldn't do the same? You get a choice. Either the pair of them are as bent as hell, or they are too stupid to be allowed to run a country.
    @6. Carry on proving how thick you are!
    @8. Don't be daft. We 'Angles' could finish you in a few weeks. No 'action' since 1945. We Brits even had to come over and show you how to get off boats.
    @10. You're all what? Corrupt? Criminal? Degenerate? Depraved? Mendacious? Murderous? Puerile? Rapacious? Stupid? Worthless? If I decide to visit Brazil for an hour or so, is it okay if I bring my Heckler & Koch UMP? About 100 magazines. Plus boxes of loose cartridges.

    Why are you saying LULU2018? Did he give you more in pay-offs? Thought about the possibility of his cancer returning? A choice between prison and death. Which do you think he'll pick? Dilma should be going to prison shortly anyway. She's obviously guilty of something. Put her away for 20 years and wait for the admissions!

    @11 Hincha,
    On principle cannot disagree with your suggestion......just one question, 'are you new to this forum, or have you participated before, under a different name' ?
    The reason I ask is because it appears to me that you have no idea who this “brasileiro” is, or the 'group' which calls itself 'brasileiro' time, you will notice, that he, or they, are knuckleheads of the first order, radically communist and ignorant. Most of the other regular posters here, that have a brain in their head - and here I'm excluding the notorious Argie trolls - will confirm what I've just written. Wait and see....won't take long. Good night.

    @ Hincha

    I quite enjoy using such epithets such as 'fuck' without coy asteri*ks... but only in the right context, of course.
    I would never defend racism, sexism or homophobia, but I will fight for anyone's right to speak it.
    (So, that I can shoot them down!)
    Anyway, I wouldn't post on any site that denied such freedom of expression, or wouldn't allow me to say such cunting-fuck-bastarding-wank-shitting words such as these classic Anglo-Saxon norms.
    They are only words...
    The only people that are frightened of words are Dictators.

    just saying' ... you bunch of fuckin' arseholes... now kindly piss-orff!

    @15 Ilsen,
    Good times, the use of certain epithets can be very appropriate, just depends who you are referring to.......

    Bingo. I always want to know who I can shoot. I'm funny that way. ;)

    Brasshole was hiding under a rock today as huge numbers marched against the incompetent Dilma and government.

    @19 Ilsen,
    That's the way ! fuck the feeble-minded twits that believe in political correctness...if everyone were more honest about their feelings and didn't hide behind PC crap, life would be easier.....I believe in calling a spade, a spade.
