    Innocuous attitude of the opposition. Rather than propose solutions to Brazil, the opposition wants the power to serve their own interests that go through the full and frantic delivery of all the equity built by generations of Brazilians to the US.

    Lunatic opposition with the soul corrupted by complex mutts.

    Until Dilma and Lula are put on trial Brazil will be considered a banana republic.

    It is estimated San Paulo runs out of water in June.

    Oh puleese. Terrorist 'president'. Corrupt previous 'president'. Apparently so stupid that he had no idea what was going on in 'his' country. What was his problem? Too busy wanking and only getting air? Do the sensible thing. Shoot the pair of them! Wanky Lulu got wanky Dilma noticed. Obliterate!

    Lula is a complete crook, Dilma while completely incompetent and out of her depth stands a high probabity of being complicit too.

    4. She was either complicit or incompetent or maybe both.

    BReal is at 3.30/1

    watch inflation skyrocket if they don't drastically pull back subsidies immediately.

    And this stupid temporary payments making the poverty numbers looks good will quickly fade and have more added to them than they did to begin with.

    Watch and see

    It is quite clear that ALL companies dealing with Petrobras HAD to pad their contracts and HAD to stuff the PT with bribes or they just didn't get the business.

    So the citizens get overcharged and the PT bosses get rich.

    What can be simpler than that for Brasso to understand?

    6. I don't know about Brazil but it costs (i think) 7X more money to build infrastructure in Argentina than it does in the USA.
    and it takes 3x longer if it ever gets done.

    I don't know why there is so much apathy down there. At least the middle class is protesting in Brazil. The lazy Rgs do nothing.

    We need better than apathy, we need a hit squad and some rough justice

    You idiots don't like opposition, do you ? gets in the way of the PT's corruption schemes, which infest all Brazil's Stare-run companies.....
    Squeal all you want, but the solution to start to solve Brazil's problems, is to get rid of Lula, Dilma and the PT. If she is innocent, what has she got to worry about ? (quem não deve , não teme...) but we all know she is as dirty as a parrot perch. 7 years as head of PB, and never knew what was going on under her nose ?? tell me another joke.....

    Looks like thousands of workers will lose their jobs because of the high level corruption

    How will Dilma justify sacking her core support?

    @7 YB
    It is notorious that in Brazil that the final cost to the taxpayer, of all infrastructure projects in which the government is involved, is several times what it really costs...The Abreu & Lima refinery, still being built in Pernambuco - for PB - was budgeted at USD 2,5 billion......the cost has already passed USD 19 Billion, and Graça Foster, before she resigned, said it would need at least another billion.....only 8,5 times...
    Pernambuco, Lula's home State...mere coincidence ??
