    DumbAss Dilma fucked Mr. Market by keeping the price of fuels artificially low but he has had his revenge and hasn't stopped yet!

    It always happens thus. The Brazil Nuts don't know who or what the market is though, that much is crystal clear. If only the public would realise it is how THEY act that creates Mr. Market things would really take off.

    Too many illiterates in the population are letting this bunch of crooks off easy.

    So, according to fatty Dilma, PB had to sell gasoline at subsidized prices (losing USD 20 billion in 4 years) in order to curb inflation.... well, that didn't turn out too well, did it ? It is a notorious fact that Dilma forced PB to sell fuel at a loss in order to try to maintain her popularity. Now, decent gas is already costing US$ 1,00 per litre. She is even incompetent when it comes to lying.

    Lula's involvement will become clearer when the Federal Police conclude their preliminary investigation into the corruption scheme within the BNDES.
    If the bank's name is “NATIONAL” Bank for Economic and Social Development, why was it used to finance international projects for Lula's dictator pals, while doing very little in Brazil ? The answer is quite obvious : an easy way to get billions out of the country and funnel part of them into private bank accounts, Lula's and other PT, PMDB and PP politicians'.
