    ““Brazil is going through a very difficult moment. A process is underway that is systematically breaking the constitution,” Rousseff told supporters at a rally for October 2 Rio de Janeiro mayoral candidate Jandira Feghali. “First they attacked me, and now they are attacking Lula.”

    First, would just like to say that Jandira Feghali is one of the most horrible, ugly females I have ever had the displeasure of seeing on TV....Good luck to Rio if that ”thing” is elected mayor. But if 'it' is, they deserve what they get.

    Second, by the way Dilma and Lula carry on, one would think they are innocent, and all the 'proven' corruption is just something in someone's imagination. They believe PB is doing just fine, never better, and that it was not mismanaged nor almost bled to bankruptcy...
    Hopefully, the majority of the voting population has seen enough to know the shit the fat cow and the 9-fingered mollusc are.

    But, then, I do understand that the concept of innocent until proven guilty is beyond the understanding of you authoritarian right wing military junta supporting extremists.

    @3 Hippy
    Where do you live ? on the moon ?
    Proof of guilt is in every friggin' direction you turn to....it's only you liberals who don't see it, because either your too stupid to, or because you've been brainwashed.
    Either way, don't worry, your ignorance shines like bright light.

    “How the Washington Regime Change Machine Was Able to Oust Brazil's President Rousseff
    Now after less than three weeks at the job, Temer has unveiled plans for wholesale privatization of Brazil's crown jewels, starting with oil. The planned Wall Street rape of Brazil is about to begin. …It's important to keep in mind that elected President Rousseff was not convicted or even formally charged with any concrete act of corruption, even though the pro-oligarchy mainstream Brazil media, led by O Globo ran a media defamation campaign creating the basis to railroad Rousseff into formal impeachment before the Senate….Indeed, the Senate issued its own expert report that concluded there was ”no indication of direct or indirect action by Dilma“ in any illegal budgetary maneuvers. …According to the Associated Press, ”Independent auditors hired by Brazil's Senate said in a report released Monday that suspended President Dilma Rousseff didn't engage in the creative accounting she was charged with at her impeachment trial.“ Under an honest system that would have ended the impeachment then and there. Not in Brazil.
    In effect, she was impeached for the dramatic decline in the Brazilian economy, …In brief, the removal of Dilma Rousseff …new form of Color Revolution from Washington, one we might call a judicial coup by corrupt judges and congressmen. Of the 594 members of the Congress, as the Toronto Globe and Mail reported, ”318 are under investigation or face charges“ while their target, President Rousseff, ”herself faces no allegation of financial impropriety.”

    ““How the Washington Regime Change Machine Was Able to Oust Brazil's President Rousseff”

    Hill's conspiracy theory......what bs.

    “Now after less than three weeks at the job, Temer has unveiled plans for wholesale privatization of Brazil's crown jewels, starting with oil.”

    PB, one of Brazil's crown jewels ? In the past, yes ; today, no more.
    But couldn't expect anything else but bs from you.....keep on lapping it up Hillyboy.

    “It's important to keep in mind that elected President Rousseff was not convicted ......”

    Don't worry, she will be. Also her ex-Cabinet Minister Elenice Guerra, Antonio Palocci, Luciano Coutinho, Guido Mantega....and let's not forget the 9-fingered mollusc......there'll be no one left to wave the red flag....how awful.

    “Hill's conspiracy theory......what bs.” Not at all, Your first clue ishould be the passage is enclosed in quotation marks. The second, is the connecting URL to the original citation. But, a truly educated person wouldn't be ignorant of such a criteria would they?

    The “Conspiracy theory” refers to your belief it must be true, not the article itself.

    “”But, a truly educated person wouldn't be ignorant of such a criteria would they?”

    No, they wouldn't, but neither would they be fooled by what they read, would they ?

    “The “Conspiracy theory” refers to your belief it must be true,…No, they wouldn't, but neither would they be fooled by what they read, would they?” But, apparently you are fooled by your presumption that lays the responsibility for the message on the messenger. But, a truly educated person wouldn't be so ignorant, and would be able too differentiate between the two, wouldn't they?

    Now it's all about a truly educated person is it ?.....to avoid the main issue, and to keep on bullshitting, you cling onto what is the least important and make a meal of it.....you are a waste of time....yaaawn ...

    “Now it's all about …to avoid the main issue” It was addressed succinctly, and I was able to show the point that you were trying to make, in fact condemned you. The rest was to show how moronically stupid you appear trying to pass yourself off as an educated person, when you are clearly not.

    But why don't YOU “prove” your assertions....you can't, so you are a liar....now where have I heard the BS before ?

    “Why don't YOU “prove” your assertions.” Which one's are those Jack?, or are you in such a rush to trip me up, that you haven't realized you've tied your own shoe-laces together.

    “Which one's are those Jack? ”
    Not only are you unable to prove any of the lies you've told, you can't even remember them....sounds like senility is setting in.

    But, can YOU prove you ever lived in Brazil ? No you can't, so that makes you - to use one of your favourite girly words - an “unrepentant” liar. What are you, some religious freak ?

    Talking of shoelaces, who ties your's for you ??

    Regarding your # 119 in the “Malvinas Sovereignty” thread, just as well it's now closed for comments - It's no use trying to reason with an idiot.

    @ 16 Hill
    Fallacious reasoning ? OR, logical reasoning ? If you ever lived in Brazil, you should be able to prove it....easy to do if you're not lying.
    Or do you think that a special set of rules apply to you ? You don't like it when the shoe's on the other foot, do you ?

    “If you ever lived in Brazil, you should be able to prove it....easy to do if you're not lying”
    Since I have never stated where I presently live, nor will I ever on a public forum. Neither, do I have any particular interest in other posters personal details. The only persons that do have such abiding interests are the wackos. Again, since I have made no geographical claims, there is nothing for me to confirm or deny.

    Cannot be sure but I thought you once mentioned you had lived here. If you never did, no problem. But why wouldn't you “publicly state” the city you currently live in, or once lived in - if in Brazil ? Afraid of being singled out in the midst of millions ? Must admit that you would stand out like a sore thumb. In the absence of such confirmation, we then have to presume it is more likely that you don't live here, never did, and therefore you knowledge of Brazil is painfully lacking.
