    Every indicator says this “recession” is a depression and its not going to get any better anytime in the near future.

    The need to get these Marxists terrorists out of office before it ends up like Venezuela.

    The ParTy has been going on for 13 years. Finally run out of food and booze ; and the lights have gone out. Lack of payment. Call on the ignorant 'people' to pay the bill...once again ; the PT will do whatever it can to keep the party alive until the end of 2018....even if it means f*cking the country a bit more.

    I think the rabbit that would have been in the hat will actually be a pack of rats.

    They already have those in government, why NOT give them to the citizens?

    Special Edition for Twinkletoes, re his # 98 at “Confirmed : Brazil faces its worse economic plunge in 25 years”.

    Twinkletoes,
    you keep on spouting the same old crap. But I suppose it is your right to express your opinion, even though you really have no idea what you are talking about. You are what we call here, a “sem-noção”...
    And I'm still waiting for you to tell me why I wouldn't “say it to your face”....all that empty bravado....suits you, you supercilious twat .

    “the military option was better than the communist one.” Stuff and nonsense, all that had occurred was a government was elected that rightly or wrongly wanted to be more inclusive. There was absolutely no indication that it was anything other than totally democratic in conduct and outlook. Those self-serving persons, whose interests had previously been disproportionally represented. Refused to except the verdict of the ballot-box. Therefore, they were utterly apposed to the cardinal principle of “Government of the people, by the people, for the people,…” - Abraham Lincoln. Just as you are.
    No because you would have a sudden and acute discovery as to exactly why I had earned the sobriquet 'The Legend,' and too the best of my knowledge I'm the only one of my 125,000 colleagues who was so honoured.

    @5 Twinkletoes
    Aren't you ever going to grow up ? mentally I mean. I know you are probably a doddery old fart who thinks he knows everything, but you are such a repetitive bore and a turd.....to burn your nervous energy, you could always put on your frock and your dancing shoes and prance around for a while....

    Whats more revealing about your character, besides being proved a liar innumerable times. As a result of claims you have made, yet have been unable to substantiate any of them. Its even more significant the cowardly way in which you use anonymity to engage in personal attacks. You are the absolute epitome of the persona of a wimp 'want-to-be'. I was a man among men who was so honoured while you were just a wimpy paper-pusher, who stamps his little-foot while hiding behind a nom-de-plume. The imagery you keep revealing is just an insight as to what's happening inside your head. Definitely some very peculiar fantasies happening in there, what a hero. LOL
