Financial markets in Brazil, and globally, are betting that with the exit of president Dilma Rousseff, a more business friendly government will take over helping Latin America's largest economy to kick-start with vice-president Michel Temer, who apparently is working on a wide ranging 'national coalition' and 'salvation cabinet'.

    If Temer takes over, there'll be no miraculous recovery, but at least the speed with which Brazil is heading towards the crapper, should slow down.....and eventually, things should get back on track.....according to Brazilian standards, well understood.

    “..the fight will continue in the streets”

    Considering Dilma's earlier history as a marxist terrorist, the promotion of street-fighting seems to be wholly in character.

    Can't be sure what the fat cow or the LulaRat really mean by “take the fight to the streets”, but if they think they are going to send their shitty red army, composed of the MST, MSTS, CUT and CONTAG to the streets to create chaos and to try to intimidate the population, they will be met by the army.....which , I hope, will shoot them to shreds.

    Either Brazil will move closer to the 1st world of law and order or it will slip into an abyss and not be heard from for a generation or two.

    @6 Lucifer: REF:Law & Order: Pl. consider the following facts:

    #1: Within the jails and on the streets, the gangs are Better Trained, Better Disciplined and Better Equipped than the Police & Armed-Forces!
    #2: There are attractive “incentives” for the crooks & for their families for being in jail!
    #3: Besides, the L&O Situation could improve if the enforcement agencies [police & armed forces] provide accommodations to their personnel, away from the favelas. Today, the same personnel, their families & relatives are forced to live within the favelas.

    Hence, the Security, Safety & the Next Meal - their own & that of their loved ones - depend upon their “cooperation” with the Drug-Lords who rule the favelas & jails!

    @8 Hippy
    Glenn Greenwald has asked the question that's on everyone's mind, “after the cow is impeached, who takes over, if they are all corrupt ?”

    It has no easy answer, but one thing is very clear - the PT has one and only one objective, which has to be stopped at all costs : their political philosophy is to take power and hold on to it, no matter what, in order to transform Brazil, along with the rest of South America, into a Bolivarian socialist VZ.
    Just read their manifest known as “O Foro de São Paulo” ; if that isn't reason enough to get rid of them, I don't know what is.
    After gaining power on a political platform of honesty, transparency and ethics, they swerved 180° - they have implemented an enormous criminal organization in every level of Government, all over the country, and the fact that their project (for total power) is being threatened, is why they are grasping at straws trying to save their sorry asses... only a fool can't see what's happening.
    Just for yr info, with an eye on October's Municipal elections (for mayor and aldermen), hundreds of mayors are abandoning the PT and affiliating themselves with other, less rejected parties. Nationwide, 1 in 5 mayors have already left the PT, while in São Paulo, Paraná and Rio, that percentage is near 50%....says a lot about the PT....
