How to Explain Brazil's Hundreds of Thousands of Kids Living in the Streets? PDF Print E-mail
2012 - October 2012
Written by Cristovam Buarque   
Monday, 15 October 2012 04:14

Brazilian street kid Historians will find it difficult to explain Brazilian society's great disdain for its children. How could the world's sixth economy possibly have been incapable of providing decent, competent care to its children, leaving millions of them out of preschool?

How could this have been done while knowing that hundreds of thousands of mothers are obliged to leave their preschool-age children under the care of their other children, some as young as age ten, who have been removed from school for this work?

Why, in this rich society, are 3.5 million of its 50 million school-age children still not in school? Why, moreover, do the great majority of those enrolled miss class, skip school, drop out and not learn?

Why do only 40% finish secondary school and do that in courses without quality? How was it possible to treat children with such inequality, depending to their parents' income?

In addition, how, in the 21st century, can we explain why hundreds of thousands of boys and girls live in the streets of Brazil and around 100 thousand are sexually exploited?

And how, 20 years from now, will it be possible to explain that in the previous 20 years at least 10 thousand children will have been killed, an average of 14 per day?

The historians will find it perplexing that this landscape of child misery has persisted, despite that the fact that since 1924 Brazil has commemorated the Day of the Child on October 12.

Some historians will say that the mistreatment and abandonment are myths created about the past. Others will give cultural explanations: the egotistic, improvident imagination of the Brazilian population, giving preference to present material consumption, a people who neither respect intellectual activity nor consider the accumulation of knowledge as wealth.

Others will limit themselves to saying that the society divided by a history of social apartação cared for the few children of the rich minority, leaving behind the masses of children who are the offspring of the poor.

The historians will find it difficult to explain the indecency of this abandonment and stupidity, the sacrifice of the greatest potential at a society's disposal: its future, represented by its children.

However, the historians will have to recognize one thing: that the landscape of violence, inefficiency, corruption, inequality and civilizatory backwardness in 2012 stems from the way the children were treated in the past.

The Brazil of today is the country constructed by the children of yesterday; and the Brazil of tomorrow will be a reflection of the manner that we are treating the children of today.

If we want Brazil to have a bright future, we must care for the children of the present and do this in a manner different from that of the past.

As former Senator Heloísa Helena says, "Brazil needs to adopt a generation of its children, from the pre-natal state to the completion of quality secondary school for all."

Those children adopted today will adopt the Brazil of tomorrow. Brazil's future depends upon the way they care for the country, in spontaneous reciprocity of what they received in the past.

good points

and one more that wasnt mentioned, the legacy of slavey, and descendants of black slaves brought from sub sahara africa

there is not a country in the americas that brought slaves from africa , who is not affected by that dynamic

you cant just free a huge amount of slaves in 1888 , with no infrastructure, and no way to get into society, with families having been broken up in slavery, no push for education, all the baggage that every counry in the americas that had this slave trade, and not have repercusions all throughout the society of these perspective counries

yeah, it is much bigger than brazil...
“Over 75 years ago Wall Street Crashed; but today the New Crash is already underway...”
written by Ricardo C. Amaral, October 16, 2012

Ricardo: I just posted this info at the Elite Trader as follows:

October 16, 2012

SouthAmerica: This thread has been moved from the "economics forum" to the "chit chat forum" - this has raised the "red flag" regarding the subject matter of this thread.

That means you guys in Wall Street must be in "PANIC" mode regarding the stock market...

I am posting the following info in many places around the web to bring the attention to this thread:

We have had a nice discussion going on since February of 20008 on the Elite Trader Economics forum about “Over 75 years ago Wall Street Crashed; but today the New Crash is already underway...” - now this thread has been moved to the “chit chat forum” – the place where the Elite Trader web manager move threads when they don't want people to see it.

There is great information on this discussion about the new “Great Depression” that is underway and about the coming stock market crash that is ahead of us...

They must be nervous, because we are in October the traditional month for Wall Street market crashes – Wall Street loves a good stock market crash during the month of October!!!!!

Here is where they moved this information about the coming stock market crash that they don't want people from around the world to see it:

I've said it a hundred times. Brazil will never become a true world power until they invest in educating all of their children and allowing everyone an opportunity to participate in the official economy.

Yeah, I know, the U.S. is falling apart, soon to be overtaken and crushed by the 3rd world. Maybe, maybe not. But regardless of what happens in the U..S., Brazil will stand or fall on this important issue. In the modern world, an educated citizenry is imperative to economic success.
Middle East Meltdown and US Foreign Policy

October 16, 2012

SouthAmerica: Here is another example of "Operation Clueless" in the Middle East going according to plan for the old USA.....

The name "Operation Clueless" is very important in this case, because it defines what the United States is trying to accomplish in the Middle East.

The name “Operation Clueless” is also important, because when you don't have a clue about what you are doing any result it will be O.K.

In a Nutshell: US foreign policy is so incompetent that amounts to nothing more than a very sad JOKE.

Today the leaders of any country has to be completely “Brain Dead” to follow the “Pathetic” leadership of the United States.

Of what's really wrong in Brazil. Whenever anyone of any nationality criticizes the status quo in Brazil, especially concerning how Brazil is failing it's children, you all attempt to divert attention by launching an attack on the U.S. For one, I am not a supporter of U.S. foreign policy, and much of the domestic policy is nearly as bad. Whether or not the American people wake up in time to change the course of history again is yet to be seen.

But . . . this does nothing to address the issue of how Brazil is failing their children. Very sad.

In this episode, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the Bobo and Gono global central banking clown show featuring Ben Bernanke and Gideon Gono and their crowd pleasing echo bubble gags and hyperinflationary squirting money printing flowers.

In the second half of the show, Max Keiser talks to Jim Rickards, author of CURRENCY WARS, about Ben Bernanke's speech in Japan where America's chief currency warrior warned emerging economies to appreciate their currencies or suffer inflation. Rickards also notes it could be the first time the head of the Federal Reserve has ever talked about the US dollar, normally the domain of the US Treasury..

The crux of the whole issue is in the South nobody (including our black brethren) knows what this "Afro Brasilian" culture is all about. You are right in our city less street kids, but lots of crack addicts. But.....but....but.... I wouldn't say that our black kids are the main distributors/consumers.

ahh joao

i never said the crack heads are the black kids

the vendors piling in the city are not coming with good intentions...they hide their meats and cheeses in the gutters before they sell them on the beach, they ought to be run out of town

our town is oblivious to cultura afro brasileira, they like tango more, or farra do boi and octoberfest, but go to rainha do carnival and you will see our black and brown population and the best event our town has...our media doesnt show the black and brown citizens enough...they are marginalised and discriminated against

ahhhhhhhhhhaha well simps, free base takes too much equipment and heroin for speed balls just doenst have the farc seal of selling aproval, they deal in coke and coca paste and the crack they can make out of the impurities...i guess it just doesnt register with the lets focus on only the usa is the problem crowd that , farc and other coke pushing factions in south america, are flooding brazil with coke and crack and destroying many brasilians lives

meanwhile, unless brazil and the other countries that brought slaves from the americas , dont really face their slave buying pasts, they are doomed to each have their own social problems in place that will onoly bring society down in the long run...and one of brazil's slave remenants from the past is truly the amount of street kids that are out there
but, but, but, king tut
written by Simpleton, October 21, 2012
Asp, in brasil for the most part, the flooding just like many other things, is at least 20 years behind the curve. It will get worse despite police action. You should feel lucky where you are at. You know that there is not one american dollar that is not contaminated, not one letter sent by first class postage from Columbia that is not saturated (such that someone with access to a decent chem lab in some college somewhere can't do an extraction). Forget southeast asia, wait for the us to evacuate the middle east and north africa and then we will see whether the FARC crowd, latent followers of reverend Sun Myung Moon, et. al., place their seal of selling approval on anything and bring the cheapest form of pacification to the masses. Slaves to another master and quite independant of skin tone or heritage.

Don't talk to me about people of color being marginalized factions asp. Plenty of those not of color are living up on or near the venerable mansions, estates and castles on the hill above Jacarezinho accessible only by moto. You can look just down the block to see "lilly white" trash totally trashed out lying in the streets and be followed by an eight year old into the bathroom of her father's home while having no more interest that just taking a leak.

written by asp, October 21, 2012
or really simps? so you are trying to tell me that black brazilians arnt marginalised? you do know there are more poor white people in the usa than black, but that doesnt diminish the horrible racism and slave past that carries over into today in the usa...

it is amazing when white people in the usa or brazil cant own up to the white racist slave past that has driven our countries...like it doesnt exist , or isnt a big deal

look at the prisons in brazil, it is the middle passage but not on a ship...its mostly black and brown people held in the most god awful conditions anyone could imagine...look at people waiting for planes in the airport....mostly like it was switzerland, forget the people who say "hey , most brazilians are mixed"...there are a huge number of phenotype black people in brazil, but, you dont see them well represented in all the elite areas of society

the legacy of slavery from africa is a severe factor in all the places that african slaves were brought to the americas

when are white people going to take responsibility for that?

written by Antonio Murillo, October 21, 2012
What ridiculous remarks. You obviously do not know how long slavery has existed and that it STILL exists today.

The "white" people should take sole responsibility for the enslaving of human beings in the Americas? Where else were the slaves sent to during that era of the "Global Slave Trade"? No onus on the African kings that sold them into slavery in the first place?

Grow up and get an education...I will help you with some light reading so you can gain an introductory purview on this subject:

another chump that cant see the reality and how it really affects the americas

you grow up , and educate yourself

you do know that white people invented "racism" and how to define races to try to make black Africans look inferior to justify their taking them into slavery, dont you? i think you are the ignorant one

just because africans sold slaves, and the arab slave trade was just as ugly doesnt mean we cant look at how the north atlantic slave trade affected all of the americas where slaves were brought

what the f**k is so hard to understand about that, jerk off

get your information together before you start bulls**tting
focus
written by Simpleton, October 22, 2012
Thanks for the link Antonio. Our distinguished blogger asp has clearly defined the area of focus he wishes to biatch about. It is the current day ipso facto evidence of the after effects on the more recent history of black enslavement in the americas vs slavery in general over time immemorial. That my people strove for and shed blood to free his people counts for naught. They did not endeavor far enough nor long enough to fulfill equalization. They did not teach his people how to relearn how to learn (which was ripped from those that previously did know how to do so, most of whom were probably murdered, and completely repressed and discouraged forcibly on all others) thus effectively further pulling the rug out from underneath them, leaving them no way forward and, according to how the plug was pulled in north america over time, it encouraged them to breed like rats increasing substantially their population as a percentage of the whole without yet having a ship of their own to either set sail upon or jump from. That on a percentage of population basis the higher seats of power, the more lucrative or luxury travel opportunities, the tv / cable broadcasts in brasil are notably not equal when viewed from a simple black / non-black perspective is very much a reality. Is it whitey continuing to strive to keep his people down? Sorry, no, I don't think so. Is he trying from the other side of his mouth to continue to promulgate "white man's burden", maybe or maybe not.
Mitt Romney wants to prepare the US Military to be able to fight World War I - (1917)
written by Ricardo C. Amaral, October 23, 2012

Ricardo: I did watch the final US presidential debate on the subject of foreign policy.

If I recall correctly this presidential debate is happening in October 2012, and Mitt Romney is comparing today's US Navy with the US Navy of 95 years ago. He wants to go back to the good old days of World War I.

When Mitt Romney was comparing the US Navy in 1917 with the current US Navy, Barack Obama should have mentioned to Mitt Romney some of the advances in military technology in the United States that has happened since 1917 such as:

Compared with 1917 today the US Military has:

1) More Nuclear weapons including thermonuclear warheads.

2) More satellites

3) More Intercontinental long-range ballistic missile that can be armed with thermonuclear warheads.

4) More Stealth bombers

5) More nuclear-powered submarines.

6) More aircraft carriers.

And so on....

Basically, Mitt Romney thinks that the world has not changed much since 1917.

Mitt Romney wants to develop a defense policy for the United States to be able to fight World War I.

Besides a bigger Navy, Mitt Romney wants to build a very large supply of “Mustard gas” and other chemical weapons as they used on WW I.

simps, im a white person who is taking responsibility, hopefully, humbley in the shadow of those that did fight and die to end slavery

ive had the good fortune on my business trips in brazil recently to catch cultura afro brasileira folklorico shows in a couple of differant cities...i mean my god, what richness and excitement...

to not understand how the culture of the west african slaves brought over to the americas absolutly dominated the popular cultures of our countries, would be missing some of the most profound testimony to the genius of the culture that was so brutaly enslaved

and, simps, are you going to look me in the cyber eye and tell me with a straight cyber face that the slave trade to brazil, and the dicrimination and marginilisation after the slaves were freed, hasnt contributed to the huge number of street kids out there?

course not
written by Simpleton, October 23, 2012
asp, you know I get around a bit, I get right down in there with the PB's when I'm there, I go to places and see the lives of your so called marginalised people (mostly poor and mostly phenotype black) and learn what it has been / transformed into over the past several generations first person including garnering a perspective on the cultural ties and traditions that one can see persists from generations before them. As far as the street kids go, that you would have to define a bit more narrowly. I have an absolute blast playing futbol or inventing some other game, treking out of the favela to go take some play time and a swim at the beach, etc.. If your talking about those that are truely moradoras do rua, ya, that's sad but I don't think slavery's end 120 years or so ago and what their ancestors were not provided has much at all to do with that. It's fantasic your appreciation of the musical heritage and what not, I'm not a clubber myself, I don't hit the touristie places or rich weekend shows much, not that I don't enjoy that kind of thing when I encounter it.

I'm encouraged now. I currently have a president that is all powerful. He apparently can roll back time and change 1917 into 1916 and make all the numbers add up or not add up as he sees fit. He's so incredibly knowledgable and astute as our commander in chief he even knows we have things like aircraft carriers that you can actually land aircraft on, boats that go under the water that are called submarines from which he can let loose upon the world nuclear weapons and a lot of other nifty stuff like no one needing horses or bayonets anymore. He's also very wise and has a lot of business savy. He knew that bankrupting me both personally as a long time investor in GM and as a tax payer made the utmost of sense because there was a hugh risk that I and everyone else would be having to dodge the huge flood of chinese built automobiles that would otherwise have filled our garages, drivewsys, public streets and crumbling highways. (Does anyone have a brouchure of this year's chinese automobile model offerings? I'm might want to import one just for novelty purposes anyway. If not, hopefully the brouchures are tastefully done sporting photos of gals sem bunda sem peitos in diaper type bikinies so popular on asp's 30 meters of beachfront.)

I'm considering a late stage career change. I see a pretty good prospect and 300 new job openings in the Italian geophysist and earthquake predictionist market. I'm sure to be a success as I'm just like my great leader, leading from behind is sure fire way to getting my contract renewed.

here is the thing , simps, im not acusing you of this, but, lots of people say "oh , slavery is over,that was in the past, my parents didnt have anything to do with it...etc etc"

but, look how wealth is passed down generation after generation,i mean this is fact...if wealth can be passed down genereation to generation, its even more reality that dirt poor poverty can be passed down generation to generation...the same way alcoholism can be passed down and the same way disfunctional behaviours can be passed down genereation to generation

if anything, seeing how slavery worked in brazil and how the legacy of it is very apherant in the class break downs in society, it even fortifies more than ever that the legacy of slavery was passed down into the usa...there are incredible parralels for those who want to see the truth

yes, 70 percent of black americans are middle class...what a victory, it wasnt handed to them ( if any one thinks affirmative action or quotas is handing it to anyone just doesnt get it, more white people are on welfare in the states than black people of course , not percentage wise, but it sure aint only a black thing), that is for sure, but, those left behind, in many cases, it has to do that they just couldnt get out from underneath of the boot of slavery on their necks

Point taken Frederick. On the affirmative front the president has been quite clear in appeasing and reducing tensions across the board or at least rebalancing them to an extent, kinda JFKish is what the liberal news media is now saying today after finally acknowledging they didn't challenge his facts and ran merrily along with him when he turned 1917 into 1916 three days ago. They have all run so willing right up snug with his behind and declared his "truthfully" painted picture of his opponent & many other things and are just now beginning to smell the stink.

Somehow I just don't have the feeling of having to pick between the lesser of two evils as has been the case for the past twenty years. The O boy has already lost the backing of my two twenty-somethings who backed him, promoted him, did fund raising for him the last time around. Me myself? Like always, I'll vote my concience when the day comes and that will be a matter between me and the voting booth.

Hi Simp,

While I am not sure what this hullabaloo about your Great President "turning 1917 into 1916" three days ago is, lemme remind you that your country went into WW1 in 1916 according to Ken Follet to save the Limeys and Frogs from the Krauts. So PBO might have been referring to the situation of your military forces in 1916 and how much it has improved till date.

So I do not understand why you have to get worked up and burst your piles.smilies/sad.gif

At least you have the option to go or not to the polling booth.smilies/cool.gif

So stay cool.smilies/cool.gif
Mitt Romney made millions of the Detroit auto Bailout as the people from Michigan and Ohio got the shaft...
written by Ricardo C. Amaral, October 26, 2012

Ricardo: Mitt Romney got millions and millions of US dollars from the Multi-Millions in Detroit Bailout from the US government, and the auto workers from Michigan and next door in Ohio got the shaft.

The people from Ohio can give the shaft back to Mitt Romney on election day - it's time for payback.

Let's see how smart the people from Ohio really are on election day - only idiots in Ohio will vote for Mitt Romney on election day.

Hope you are hunkered down & well prepared to confront Sandy. All the best.

Even with almost a week's worth of warning I am still in doubt "Sandy" is going to land a hard hit in the spot Ricky so direly needs. "Confront"ing things is what he tends to take out on his readership, not what his Green Card giver gets all worked up and personal or igual about these days. If she chooses it is "best" to "hunker" down ... well ...

Yeah, we all know your full name is Doubting Thomas Simpleton. smilies/wink.gif

Now that "Sandrinha" has hit Ricky right on the spot he "direly needs" (it must have been quite painful), how are we going to rescue him? smilies/shocked.gif

On a serious note, I hope Ricky is doing alright. The last time I was in NYC, I observed that their drainage system is not all that bad, though it doesn't come anywhere near that of ASP's native village. smilies/smiley.gifsmilies/wink.gifsmilies/cheesy.gifsmilies/grin.gif

oh ha ha ha on that one, joao,how lucky you are to be privy to some of the great hypocracies of my little village..the little rain we had, it got so flooded, there were guys walking around in wet suits and flippers to help people get their cars out of the way...

is that why on one road , that takes a lot of the brunt of the flooding, the mansions pretty much are all up for sale?i pity the sucker that is going to buy that mansion when the first little hard rain comes in...

my f**king god , all the goddamn f**king problems i always got in my apartment from the slightest little rain all came from the f**ked up barbeque built into the apartment of my neighbor...infiltrating in on my cable tube....

Taking a big sandy up the . . .
written by Simpleton, November 02, 2012
Joao, your sentiment for those afflicted is shared but I don't think you should be worried at all about Ricky. If I'm not mistaken he has had over thirty years experience "adapting" to that noreaster richie rich lifestyle. I'm sure his second home is just fine even if the cable is still out. Now, after taking a big sandy up his ... he and many others like him are 'bout to find themselves just like the rest of us that have been obama'd.

Asp, guess I still haven't set the cross hairs just right. With your description of the drainage water flow issues I would have thought Vila Velha, that or the "large" small farming community I grew up in that didn't take things seriously and begin doing arial photographic mapping studies to see what could or could not be done to resolve things until at least 20 years after I last lived there. Stick around another 50 and maybe there might even be enforceable building codes and ordinances that could be used against that "insensitive" neighbor or yours.

Dunes
written by Simpleton, November 03, 2012
Joao, the now buried ancient dunes tossed up eons ago by the inland seas and the remnant of a substantial glacial valley separate me from those "tidal" waves by about 15km. The harvest moon that came late this year was incredibly reflected upon by my million gallon plus artesian fed pond out back (which after the drought is now filled to the brim and teeming with fish!) - it was good the leaves were almost all gone so I could see it from my first floor deck up the hill in this old chalet built into the side of a morraine amongst the trees. If asp has water intrusion problems related to his cable tube and the bturd neighbor that made bs modifications, I would think he was inteligent enough to plug it up and seal it off with a bit of RTV although that might just force the water to infiltrate the sand castle walls and ultimately lead to an early colapse vs just the whole dang building waiting to be washed down hill (or out to sea) like many favela constructs do.

the tale of the infiltration through my cable and phone tube is a ridiculas one...for a number of years, ive lost count, i paid money many times to cover up the tiles above my apartment , plus an elaborate drip catching system with panic on trips at the thought of a horrible 4 day storm overflowing the leak stopage system

i paid people to come and find the source...finaly, a new syndica had a lot of painting proposals, i demanded they do a check up of the building to find the source of the leaks...i forced them to test the terrace of the neighbor, and, i insisted that they test the barbeque section of the apartment...sure enough, on a dry day, they poured a gallon of water into his barbeque and sure enough a gallon came through the telephone cable tube....can you beleive nothing was done?

i had to climb over the wall, tape it up, it got torn down by tourists, i tape it up again, then, i jump over his wall with a worker and we make an aluminum cover he can open and close

the idiot still complained that we did it without his permision , he actualy was out of touch, no correct phone number

but, godamnit, since i did it myself, i havent had one drop of water through my cable phone tubes.....i could go balistics on this guy, but, im trying to not have hate vibes with people i live near...dont s**t where you live....im sure joao does it differantly and has enemies throughout his building...
Ya same story different problem
written by Simpleton, November 04, 2012
Being I was just an indigent inhabitant of the cobertura last year it was amazing how often I got the riot act read to me on the hot sunny days I chose to just hang out and bake in the sun and sweat up a storm in my songa. The drainage for the shower in the sunny corner of the glass surround terrace ran down through a tube onto the veranda outside the dona de casa's bedroom. It was quite okay if other freeloader residents and richie rich churrasco party attendees and visitors made use of it - just not me! Of course the story changed when it was time to play "pool boy" and scrub the Italian marble tiles down with sabon and agua sanitaria. In thinking about it, maybe the guff I had to put up with wasn't such a grand deal. Fixing the cable system, fone lines, plumbing, electrical services, computers and wireless links, keeping light bulbs replaced and covering half the grocery bills should have earned me more perks.

Good move. But....but....but....but.. is this new "Sindica" a resident/owner of your building or a "Sindica Profissional"? If it is the latter, you are in big trouble, ole friend. Painting the building before the leak is fixed isn't going to solve the problem, but....but....but... help to enrich her.smilies/angry.gif

.im sure joao does it differantly and has enemies throughout his building...


You are right. I have built a team of good "Technocrat Owners/Residents" and we are demanding that the things are done the right way or else the sindico gets the pink slip.smilies/angry.gifsmilies/angry.gif

joao, she was a syndica resident but, said "f**k this job" and turned it over to one of these profesional syndicas , and,i know you are right ,she doesnt know what is going on either...they never listen to me, and,ive told them over and over to forget cosmetic makeovers , our building has cancer...i just am prepared to have to take care of things that affect me by myself....actualy, i am f**king sick of the building i live in, my apartment is nothing but a delicate bunker, but, the location is ferocious when it is warm ( and sucks when its cold)even if the culture here is the weakest in all of brazil, on a warm beach day, we can compete with any beach in brazil...not with waves though...i got it for the price of bananas, now the neighborhood has shot through the roof in expence...if i sold this apartment, i couldnt move back in my neighborhood...you know, a little modest mother f**ker like me is smart enough to know when he lucked out and got a place that was out of his league...into a location he could never afford otherwise....but damnit,i dream sometimes of leblon, barra, porto de galinhas, boa viagem, plaquaford, itiponga, marasias, praia de francais , south beach

"...i just am prepared to have to take care of things that affect me by myself...." well put and well planned asp, that speaks well of how you were raised and educated.

Back on topic - only two things to do - start a creche, be sure whatever loved ones you will leave behind understand your desire that they ensure a screw, a few small nails and a tiny hammer are placed in your coffin (just in case you should have need of them).

Ahhhh....ahhhhh

What about the hundred of thousands STREET CHILDREN ??????
No one collect them and give them Care & Love ?
Ohhhhh yessssss...You have a special association caring for them.
Its name ?
THE DEATHS SQUADS !
And they are very proud of what they do, they pretend to REDUCE POVERTY !

How many deaths squads members were arrested since Robbing Hook was elected and then Dilmut??????? ?
NOT MANY, FOR SURE !
Normal, they are mostly police forces, doing overtime !
Thus PUBLIC SERVANTS doing good, apparently.

Ohhhh my...ohhh my !

Be happy to swim in your POLLUTIONssssss ! Including your polluted mindsssss !
No one yet has found a med against the famous Endemic Brazilian Navel Caressing Disease !


In my view Europe and the USA should send back home all their illegal brazilians + all those having a judiciary record !
Just fill a few empty grains ships with these illegals, when ships return back home ! Pack them as in the ships going to Brazil from Africa !
And we have no need to have the Endemic Brazilian Navel Caressing Disease to be spreaded in Europe and America.
Feel free to try your luck and find a job in China, or wherever in ASIA or....Africa !
And see if you will have a warmer welcome, a better job and a better life !
Eventually they will hire illegal Braz-zeroes as their cleaning maids. Salary 2 dollars...PER DAY...SPECIAL PRICE JUST FOR YOU !

Hmmmmmm......otherwise back home...in the grains ships !

Dont forget, Idiots are always 1'000'000 % sure that right they are !

So is life in the Braz-zeroes Paradise !

The almighty God had nothing to do with the result, ASP. Simple folks like Simpleton in WI, your relatives in IL, my friends in CA(and IL,FL,NY, etc, etcsmilies/wink.gif contributed to his victory.

BTW, I was shocked to see that most of the Southern states voted for Romney. Y'all think it was anything to do with "Racism"?smilies/shocked.gif

Almost right
written by Simpleton, November 07, 2012
, centered on target, except the idiots on the left just chose to seal the deal allowing the US to continue to follow the EU into the pits (Switzerland excluded of course - they'll be forever neutral on the econmic war front conducted elsewhere unless there's "value added" or "profit" in it.)

Think you're right Joao, the previous message was ch.c-ish but the imposters caligraphy was off on some subtle telltale points.

BTW asp, unlike you I can fix it myself no matter what it is (sad after effect of upbringing and education) but alas with the post election market crash, looming tax burden increase and the upcoming rise in real health care costs despite the ObamaCare rouse, I'm further inclined not to pay anyone else to do anything.

Unfortunately his ex-father-in-law belonged to the opposing faction.smilies/shocked.gif smilies/sad.gif
