    “Paraguay's partners in Mercosur - Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay - suspended Asuncion from the trade bloc over what their governments viewed as a coup”

    But that was simply because all of the 'presidents' were shit-scared the same thing could happen to them. And now it seems it may come to pass with DumbAss herself.


    ALL Brazil politicians are tainted with corruption until the extensive investigations are concluded but removing Dilma and holding new elections (as if that will happen) would be a way to move the country forward.

    Paraguay was always a bad example of accountability they refuse to be communist!
    They removed their president legally, according to their constitution brazil have the same article in the constitution I guess is a bad democracy to be accountable.

    The headline should read:

    Rousseff fears “Paraguay-style democracy”

    Paraguay certainly has put the “fear of democracy” into some S. American presidents.

    These dictocrats fail to understand that laws put them in office and laws remove them. When they break laws with corruption and are removes legally, the cry coup. Maybe they need to relive what real coups without laws are.

    @1. Remember how it worked? I don't think it was a case of being “shit-scared”. More a case of Kirchner wanting to impose her “authority” on the rest of the bloc. Perhaps it didn't occur that it would make her the “blochead”. Then whatshisname got bullied into it by two females. Of course, a proper man would have told them to shut up and get on with some ironing.
    @2. Disappointed with Paraguay. Having found that it was lumped in with a criminal conspiracy gang, it should have had the courage to refuse to return. Much like having the guts to leave the KKK.

    We understand full well what is not happening.

    The exorcising of the democratic right to get rid of a failed and corrupt President.

    Failed, corrupt, and UNPOPULAR president.

    92% of the people want her out.

    Nostrils/Brassiere claims to be the voice of Brazilians, yet he seems to be all alone defending a president nobody wants.

    She's going down more assuredly than Maximo's fail-boat !!

    Support for Dilma has improved in the last 75 days of the last survey, which was conducted by IBOPE and Datafolha. No one in their right mind would rely on research done by two companies linked to right-wing parties.

    Cause speculation decrease is not something we can call failure. Brazil is going very well!

    You're too stupid that I can think of something about which we can discuss.

    Perhaps this video?

    The most prudent and reasonable political solution would be for the military to declare a constitutional emergency and suspend the executive branch authority for a 60 day period with military law enacted.

    All leaders of the Worker's Party would be rounded up an summarily executed by firing squad. Other assorted Marxist-Socialists would be shot on sight which would dramatically send a message to the leftists that Brazil is fed up with corruption and ready to progress into the real world...

    ...sadly I know it's a bit of a stretch, but it would really improve the Brazilian political scene...

    #11. Lame comeback tobi. Whether you pretend to be on Argentina or Brazil, your ignorance and simple-mindedness is quite transparent. Like I tell in the countries you all support....or shut the fuck up.
    Tobi.......can I send you a post card from Patagonia? Though.......I hate waiting lines at the post primitive.

    Countdown begins to Dilma's launch.

    @6 brasshole
    I think Dilma ought to read the Constitution. There is is, in bold lettering : “IMPEACHMENT”. The possibility of fatty being dumped does exist, regardless of whether you asshole, or fatty , think it's a coup.

    @8 brasshole
    Of course DumbAss is not corrupt. To the PT, taking money from PB to pay for political campaigns, to fill their bank acount, is legal. I forgot that 'democracy', to you, is the PT's version.

    @11 brasshole
    support for Dilma is under 9%.......and is restricted to idiots who sponge off the taxpayer, or are too f*ckin' ignorant to understand what's going fit into both categories. But please, keep us informed on your latest views, we all need a good laugh every now and again.

    You know, as an afterthought, a firing squad for Dilma and Lula would be just too humane. I think they should be strung up with piano wire like Mussolini instead.

    Slow agonizing and painful death is deserved from those who steal from the desperately poor...

    Perhaps the TPP will accelerate her impeachment:

    “But what has gone almost unnoticed is that it will further isolate the struggling economies of Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela and other countries on Latin America’s Atlantic coast, whose disastrous populist governments have refused to enter free trade deals with the world’s biggest economies.”

    This agreement alone is 40% of all trade on earth.

    #22 that's funny Tobi and typical of your kind. You seem to think is is about luck which explains the demise of BRICS.....try skill sometime. Poor idiots such as yourself who have never been outside of ....wherever it is that you reside never get to see or experience reality in action. You little girl are perfect exactly where you are, as the cheerleader. Your ignorance is seamlessly endless.





    South Africa:

    Who gives a fuck!

    Good luck Chuck, only you won;t be getting laid.

    Oh....and collectively on the BRICS:

    “In this respect, the different priorities and expectations of the five Brics members — as much as their economic woes — could weaken their collective endeavour of creating a more democratic and equitable world order.”

    They are almost in as much love as the concept of South American unity.

    Sorry Brassholobi, I've no youtube's for you to watch......

    @22. We don't need “luck”. But here's an option for you. Pour a gallon of oil down your throat in the hope it will enable the cogs of your “brain” to work. Then ask yourself a simple question. Why does Rousseff fear a democratic coup? Try some definitions. A “democratic coup” would be one seeking to bring in democracy. Why would Rousseff fear democracy? And the answer? There is no democracy in Brazil. There is corrupt, dictatorial autocracy supported by fear and murder.

    You and Oppenheimer can keep dreaming. Argentina will never renounce it's independence from evil people like those that inhabit the “Trans-Pacific” quantum Conduit Wormhole, or whatever that is... and the evil people that inhabit EUialand.

    All of these countries want to harm Argentina and starve Argentineans. WE have learned our lesson never to trust any of you again.

    No deal with EU, no deal with Trans-Pacific, no deal.

    @27. I'm with you on “no deal with the EU”. “We, the people” don't want you. So it's down to our bureaucrats and your politicians. Time for you to follow your politicians around and plant bombs. Be as independent as you like.

    @27 Great_coral_aTrolL
    You have your wish, free trade deals everywhere you look and Argentina in none of them.

    The one trade agreement you are in is about to break into two camps, those in and those out of other trade deals (with Argentina in the out camp of course). Murcosur will not survive as anything meaningful for very long if that happens.

    Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it, as the Chinese say.

    “Our way is in the east with the BRICSA. ”

    brasshole, the only thing you got right the direction...east ; which puts Brazil in....the west ; Bad news for you isn't it ?

    @27 Trolley
    You're right, Argentina will never get into the TPP. The member countries will always vote to exclude Argentina (if she tries to get in), for as long as Kirchnerism prevails.

    Here in Brazil, the more intelligent people in this country have already realized that Brazil is missing out big-time, too. And even DumbAss Dilma, or whoever succeeds her , if she 's kicked out, has realized that Brazil has got to get rid of Argentina and join trading blocks that have something to offer.

    Anyone have any thorazene, clozapen or abilify? Tobi is having an episode running between brasshole and her hundreds of other personas.
    Argentina is about a year os so away of sealing like a fucked pig.
    Ever been to Patagonia Tobi? Of course never seen any of Agentina.

    “Anyone have any thorazene, clozapen or abilify?”

    Would that be enough? Sounds like he's been at the LSD again.

    If he sparked up his crack pipe right about now, no one would notice the difference.
