    '...Rousseff, a former guerrilla leader imprisoned and tortured under the 1964-1985 military dictatorship,...'
    She might have been imprisoned by the Brasilian military,
    but her REAL crimes were 'against humanity', as an international terrorist.
    Her killings were as an international terrorist.

    “When I saw hundreds of thousands of civilians demonstrating I could not help but think how it had been worth fighting for this freedom from dictatorship.” (Rousseff)

    [Thinks] “... and they're all fighting and demonstrating AGAINST ME!
    I must be doing something right .. or wrong .. or something.
    It's a good job I'm an economist, otherwise I'd be a bit worried”

    Some say, the worse brazil gets, the better argentine looks,
    and that is surely a joke in itself...

    ”In a closely watched speech in Brasilia, Rousseff said her under pressure government had to open “dialogue” with society and act with “humility.”

    What a load of BS ! what the fat idiot needs to do is to listen to the voices in the streets, and stop 'pretending' she knows what the people want....she still thinks she and her cronies, and not the people, are the victims of of this crisis. It was caused and perpetuated by her PT backed government, no-one else. She had better watch out or she'll end up being one of the casualties of it..
    She never fought for democracy...her guerilla activities in the 60's were to topple a democratically elected government (with unfortunately , a strong inclination towards communism after Jango took over as vice-president in 1962), and substitute it by a Cuban-style dictatorship...she is just a dirty, filthy liar ! Fora Dilma !!! Fora PT !! Fora Lulla !!
