Black Friday no Brasil é na Quinta…
In Brazil, Black Friday is on Thursday…

A Black Friday do Brasil começa hoje no Congresso Nacional. A propaganda promete uma super-oferta de moralidade, mas na verdade o pacote é de impunidade total.

Brazil’s Black Friday starts today in Congress. The ads promise an overwhelming morality sale, but the package to be delivered truly is of complete impunity.

Cinismo Sem Limites!…
Endless cynicism!…

cinismo

Sem palavras… Essa mulher e sua gang têm que ir para o olho da rua imediatamente. (A manchete é do site da Folha de S.Paulo.)

In Brazilian Portuguese, no additional words are necessary to describe this obscene headline. However, for those who can’t understand well what’s going on in Brazil, here’s a summary of the obscenity: The un-government is trying to get a new tax (actually, an old tax back) in order to please politicians, give them plenty of money and thus reduce the overwhelming opposition in Congress. Since this “new” tax has less than zero chance of passing, the un-government is suggesting a “temporary” (two f***ing years!) tax. A former minister (Delfim Netto) has suggested to the vice-president a reduction of that term, to just one year. As this post’s headline states, this is a severe case of endless cynicism by those clinging desperately to power. It’s pathetic. The Lessa Blog believes this woman needs to be thrown out of office immediately. (This headline was picked from the Folha de S.Paulo newspaper’s site.)
