    Why don't these ignorant, manipulated students and loser vandals go and smash the windows of the “Palacio do Planalto” in Brasilia, the fat cow's official residence ? After all, isn't she (along with the 9-fingered toad) responsible for all the current corruption schemes, inflation, and loss of jobs in Brazil ?
