    REF: “Temer's lawyers want the investigation to go ahead to clear the president's name. An audio expert has concluded the tape would not stand up as evidence in a court”:

    This article would be credible if it refrained from talking about “tapes”. This is 2017!

    If the recording is a forgery, and if the forger has done his or her job correctly, then it is unlikely that any technical evidence of tampering would remain.

    If “ 'ifs' and 'ands' were pots and pans”, there'd be no work for tinkers....according to most experts consulted, the recordings HAVE been tampered with....only two claim they weren' of these (Sanguinetti), is the 'expert' who concluded, back in 1996, that Collor's right hand man, P.C.Farias, committed suicide....yeah, we all believe that.....and also that Elvis is still alive...

    MAYBE P. C. Farias DID commit suicide and also that Elvis is STILL alive.

    But I know for SURE that Santa Clause EXISTS, The Earth is FLAT and there is NO corruption in Brazil! :o))

    Funny thing about Hippy, and Reekie (although he hasn't yet given us the pleasure of his company on this thread), they talk about things in Brazil, without actually living here....they rely on news, which can get twisted one way or the other, depending on the journalist's political preferences, and are not in touch with the daily reality of the country....but it doesn't seem to stop them from showing off their ignorance.

    Hundreds of politicians are either under suspicion or are accused of corruption or are proven to be crooks. The LIST practically is unending and is growing day-by-day [].

    BUT only a SMALL % of them are actually jailed; who seem to be quite “comfortable” behind bars!

    And the BIGGEST joke of it all, is that NONE of them are most likely to return MOST of their loot which they acquired [?] during their entire Political-Life. SOME of them [at least ONE] even claim that they have NO $$$ and hence they need to “borrow”!

    If 10% of Congress's members are not crooks, it's a lot.......and the other 90% keep on stealing, even after being denounced, and many times while they are actual defendants....'este país vai de “Mao” a “Piao”...'
    Mudando de pato p´ra ganso, já percebeu como alguns idiotas, como esse/essa “hippy” e o “Reekie” (que se esconde no Canada) nunca respondem quando desafiados a justificar as suas posições políticas, ou as suas afirmações estapafúrdias ??

    The BOTTOM Line is:
    - OF the ignorant [AND disinterested] people
    - “Made to Order” FOR the people
    - BY Their Own Candidates who they worship blindly

    “Never respond when challenged to justify their political positions, or their stupid assertions?”
    Never noticed, you can’t show. Would have noticed if they had used that page from your biography.
