    This is the tiny tip of the iceberg. The consensual sex between the business oligarchs and the ruling Worker's Party whores stealing BILLIONS of Dollars is clear. But... It will be covered up to protect Santo Lula and the Dilma bitch.

    This is why Brazil is a cesspool of Socialist corruption.

    When The Liar Mantega was 'looking' after the economy (ha, ha, ha) I suggested that fucking with Mr. Market was going to be the downfall of Brazil.

    I was wrong, it will / is plain old greed and corruption at ALL levels on an unimaginable scale. So the brassos are good at something then!

    No Chris you were right the corruption is just icing on the cake.

    It may take a generation for them to recover from this mess.
    Then again they may never recover.
