Brazil's former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva will learn in January whether a prison sentence against him is upheld, officials said, potentially knocking him out of next year's presidential election. Lula was sentenced in July to 9.5 years behind bars after being convicted of corruption in Brazil's huge “Car Wash” graft scandal. Read full article

    “After years of economic decline and corruption scandals, Brazilians are so far turning away from centrist, traditional candidates, with Lula a comfortable leader in the polls, despite his many legal problems.”

    Exactly the problem in Brazil....the big majority of voters is dumb. As they say, “the people have the government they deserve”...

    I've said this many times before, and will say it again...all you need to do is to see the hundreds of thousands who go to the stadiums on weekends to watch soccer games - and many times paying through the nose for it , the millions attracted to Carnival, or even the “Parada Gay”, but when it comes down to protesting because of the corrupt politicians,
    very few people are interested....which, IMO, proves that the majority of the population is either too stupid to realize they are being robbed, or as they say here, “like to be robbed”.
    When priorities are inverted, shit happens !

    Absolutely True!

    The population idolizes The Cup, Carnival, Parada Gay [I heard that they are even considering Gay-MMA!] and pay for the same through their noses; while letting the corrupt rob them in front of their groggy eyes!

    Shit happens - and the trend WILL continue in rising proportions [historically speaking]! Obviously and sooner or later; corruption will GRADUALLY be legalized.REF:

    So Lula is summoning his red army to occupy Porto Alegre (and other large cities) on the 24th, in order to pressure the 3 judges who'll decide his fate...he'll have to distribute cash and lots of sandwiches to his 'comrades'...

    REF: “he'll have to distribute cash and lots of sandwiches to his comrades”:

    1º: He certainly CAN afford the meager expenses - MEAGER - in comparison to the Billions Stolen+Hidden!
    2º: Almost all of his comrades are completely brainwashed and are totally ignorant to begin with. So they'll support him for FREE!

    In which country one crook declares that ALL the other crooks are innocent and has the power to release them?

    In which country The Crooks have better privileges than the population?

    In which country, the constitution and the laws are dictated by the crooks - for their own advantages?

    In which country, the crooks are very popular due to the TOTAL absence of Serious Candidates?

    A Big Chunk of the population can't even guess the answer because The Facts are calmly accepted by the Brainwashed Ignorant Majority and The Most Important Event - The Carnival - is approaching VERY fast!
