Cinismo Sem Limites!…
Endless cynicism!…


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.)

In essence, I present the petralha un-government in three acts. First, the gang alleges lack of money and does not pay the first half of the so-called 13th salary to pensioners and retired persons. Second, the Cassava Queen gives 500 million reais (approximately 150 million dollars) to politicians in exchange for their support at this near-impeachment time. Third, while doing everything wrong with the economy, the Woman-Sapiens gang has no shame: starts talking about a new (and dreaded) tax, known in Brazil as CPMF (it collects 0,38% of every bank transaction), expecting to raise some 83 billion reais (approximately 23 billion dollars). As it happened before (this tax has already been repealed once), the money that was supposed to be channeled to the Health Ministry was diverted to pay for everything else but health. No, not again!
