Alexandre de Morais – Meus 2 Centavos
Alexandre de Morais – My 2 Cents

In this video, I address the issue of Alexandre de Morais not having the necessary moral standings to fill the seat at the Brazilian Supreme Court. I explain that in 2000, he wrote a lengthy thesis in which he clearly stated that no person working for the Executive Branch should accept a nomination for the Supreme Court because that would be construed as a form of thanking/compensating the nominee, or even having that nominee to act as a shield for the president or other members of the Executive branch if legal issues came up. That written declaration of principles was blatantly ignored by an opportunist Alexandre de Morais, who readily accepted the nomination. A very bad, a very sad start. I finish my comments saying that it’s because of scum like Alexandre de Morais and others that Brazil is still a place that has to get a lot better to be considered just bad.

O Blog do Lessa quer a sua participação! Na foto acima, Alexandre de Morais, indicado pelo presidente Michel Temer para um assento no Supremo Tribunal Federal, pisca de maneira muito suspeita durante a audiência da Comissão de Constituição e Justiça para o senador Edson Lobão, figurinha carimbada, com um pé na cadeia. O que os dois estariam armando?

The Lessa Blog wants your help! The picture above shows Alexandre de Morais, president Michel Temer’s choice for a seat in the Brazilian Supreme Court, blinking very suspiciously during his Senate confirmation hearings to a certified crook, Constitution and Justice Commission’s President Edson Lobão, who’s almost ready to go to jail. What would they be setting up?

Um Fruto Amargo da Democratização Brasileira
Brazilian Democratization’s Bitter Fruit

Lei do Sexagenário, de 1865. Todo escravo com 60 anos ou mais ganhava a liberdade. A lei ficou conhecida na época como a “Lei da Gargalhada Nacional”, porque raramente os escravos conseguiam chegar vivos a essa idade. Hoje em dia, tenta-se fazer o mesmo com a chamada reforma da previdência social. No Brasil, os séculos passam, mas a piada cruel continua a mesma. Agora é a Aposentadoria da Gargalhada Nacional. Escravos, ontem; trabalhadores, hoje…

Sexagenarian Act, 1865. Every slave reaching 60 years of age obtained his/her freedom. The law was widely known at the time as the “National Laughter Act”, because very few slaves were able to reach 60 years of age still alive. Today, the same thing is being attempted in the so-called welfare reform. In Brazil, the years go by but the same cruel joke remains. Now it is the “National Retirement Laughter.” Slaves, yesterday; workers, today…
