    Don't you just love the American euphemisms such as these two (there are many others):
    “Reaching out”
    WTF does that mean, you here it all the while on US TV programmes. I thought it meant give some poor bastard you don't know a call and dump your problems on him to see if he/she can help. Now the Brazil Nuts are begging for special treatment on investment grade support from the people who missed the US bank corruption do the Nuts really think they will get some slack?

    “Negative growth”
    Must have been a yank marketing wonk who came up with this one suggesting “growth” when the reality is the diametric opposite! It's a negative trend you numbnuts which has already resulted in a failure to make the figures that were “forecast”! Has nobody thought of doing a review on the depleted cash flow analysis?

    Brazil nuts need to be taught a lesson that corruption does not pay. End of.

    Brazil must expel these rating agencies as it did with the IMF. The Western world is shit trying to stop the evolution of mankind.

    The West is a bankrupt bubble.

    This is just the beginning of a long downturn recession most likely moving into depression with the added benefit of stagflation.
    Good luck fixing that anytime soon.

    If you're on the same path as Venezuela and Argentina you'll end up in the same place.

    @2. What's the matter, Brasiliero? How many hours have you had? Still playing with your pee-nuts? In the hope that something approaching what males say happens will happen to your pointless appendage. It droops for a reason. It's a joke. Would you like to change your name to limp_prick? Wanking doesn't help, does it?

    @2 Brasileiro,
    Whats the problem with being honest & keeping your finances under control?
    lsn't it a Latin thing?
    lf the west is as bad as you say, then why do millions of people want to move there?
    Pull your head out of the sand, Brazil is not the utopia.

    @2 brASSHOLE
    You are as fake as a US$ 3 keep on claiming you hate everything 'western' - although you are smack in the middle of it - yet I'm sure you use tons of products on a daily basis that are manufactured by 'western' multinationals... Put your money where your mouth is, or STFU.
