Impostos ! ? Voto obrigatório e a seita satanica de Brasilia.

E os MAIS ALTOS IMPOSTOS PAGOS por qualquer população em qualquer parte do mundo por NADA em retorno ?… é isso que voce chama de democracia ?

E ainda tem essa: o voto é OBRIGATÓRIO !!! Onde já se viu isso? Isso é democrático ? Não ! Isso é coronelismo e uma forma de comprar votos no Nordeste desde sempre !!!!

Fora esse Universo de estatais que é o Brasil – um mundo de ‘cabidismo’ de emprego onde ninguém faz porra nenhuma!!!

Mas hoje, 24 de Março….. já estão todos se dando as mãos porque todos, TODOS estão envolvidos de uma forma ou outra nessa enorme PIZZA DE MERDA! Se forem empessegar uma, vão ter que empessegar TODOS !!! Por isso, todos estão se dando as mãos, como se fosse uma seita de marte, uma seita satânica de Charles Manson momentos antes do massacre de Sharon Tate…e, nessa seita, rolam, escorrem, vazam, babam besteiras e baboseiras e as piores mentiras. E o povo? Pasmo. E o povo? Cansado, pasmo, olha tudo aquilo já ha tantos séculos que….vira piada, pizza, samba, como sempre virou.

Mas isso não é democracia. É deboche.

E os MAIS ALTOS IMPOSTOS PAGOS por qualquer população em qualquer parte do mundo por NADA em retorno? … é isso que voce chama de democracia ?

Tá bom ! Vamos discutir Platão então ? Marx ? Hobsbawm ?

Trata-se da CULTURA DA RASTEIRA ! 500 ANOS DE MERDA E DE SALVAR A PROPRIA PELE !!!!

Nem mais é questão de partido! São TODOS uns merdas. De Lula a Aécio, Dilma, Temer, Cunha (ai, que horror ! nossam que horror!)….enfim, todos.

Me pergunto: como alguém ainda consegue DEFENDER o que aí nesse país?

Pra quem veio de pais que sobreviveram ao holocausto, como eu, “não existem politicos limpos. Existem somente aqueles que, de vez em quando tomam banhos, de vez em quando” .

Ninguém do governo pensa mais em Brasil. Pensam em se SALVAR !!! Pensam em como CONTINUAR NO PODER,

BANDO DE SALAFRARIOS ESCROTOS !!!

SE VIU ISSO COM HITLER. SE VIU ISSO COM STALIN, SALAZAR, FRANCO ETC.

QUE CARA DE PAU VOCES AINDA TEM DE DEFENDER QUALQUER POLITICO, GENTE?

É que nenhuma das soluções é boa.

Nem o impeachment e nem nada porque….quem assumiria é ainda PIOR que a Dilma: que é essa HORROR do Cunha

(a figura mais execrável do mundo) então….

Viva a democracia. Digo, a VERDADEIRA democracia. Essa que não se conhece no Brasil.

And Yet? And Now?

And Yet? And Now?

He spent the last few days before his death contemplating all of his achievements. He took a good long look at his plays, videos of his plays, the written version of his plays, the many notations (and in so many different languages) of his plays. He began reading about the plays, things he’d never really had the patience to read before.

He would sit – yes, of course, with his usual decapitating irony – but still, he would sit in silence and sift through those thousands of newspaper clippings about him as if to say: “Hey, your life is over. History. Life is kissing you goodbye!”

And then he would take a break. He’d look out of the window and stare, gaze, stare, glare, fix his eyes into the shallow waters of the East River (his companion of almost four decades) and, well, and look towards Williamsburg where he had spent some good twenty two years.

Yes, these last six months were really all about that: looking the past into its squinty eyes. Books were being prepared almost as if a funeral procession was about to take place. An entire autobiography was due soon, translations and all plus a collection of almost all of his plays and yet… And yet? And yet a Lost Case of a Brief Case.

“This has always struck me as a strange sound”, he says to a reporter over Skype. “And yet” sounds Russian to me!

There was no “and yet” for him. He could not see himself the next day, the next hour. He didn’t really believe he could keep on surviving this horrible pain of living.

“It’s not the pain of living”, he explained in his last interview. “It’s this eternal repetition, you see? It gets to be overwhelming. After all, how many times in life can you…I mean, can you wake up and make yourself your coffee and take your crap and read the same old tragedies and answer your emails and live in constant expectation that the clock has suddenly turned back in time and…that time has stopped….and…. find that you have to keep on working three times as hard to achieve the minimum required and that your friends aren’t all dying and that you are so totally alone…so totally alone!….And that the culture with which you were brought up and that made you who you are (by which he meant the classics) “I MEAN THE CLASSICS, YOU IDIOT ! I MEAN THE CLASSICS AND I MEAN THE COUNTERCULTURE CLASSICS AND I MEAN THE UNDERGROUND AND I MEAN THE….”

One could hear him running out of breath one day before he died. One could sense his desperation so desperately and so horrifyingly …. so horribly ….one could see it in his eyes that he was looking at those videos of his productions and reading parts of his plays almost as if to memorize a part of his own legacy just in case….

Just in case he were to reincarnate somewhere, sometime and (who knows) have a memory flash back of who he once was.

É o Alien chegando…

IMG_2438

É o alien ventando, é o fim da ladeira
É a viga, é o vão, festa da cumueira
É a chuva chovendo, é conversa ribeira
Das águas de março, é o fim da canseira
É o pé, é o chão, é a marcha estradeira
Passarinho na mão, pedra de atiradeira
É uma ave no céu, é uma ave no chão
É um regato, é uma fonte, é um pedaço de pão

É o fundo do poço, é o fim do caminho
No rosto, o desgosto, é um pouco sozinho
É um estrepe, é um prego, é uma ponta, é um ponto
É um pingo pingando, é uma conta, é um conto
É um peixe, é um gesto, é uma prata brilhando
É a luz da manhã, é o tijolo chegando
É a lenha, é o dia, é o fim da picada
É a garrafa de cana, o estilhaço na estrada

É o alien é o alien….

Why Brazil’s Corruption Scandal Is a Sign of Progress – New York Times

Brazil’s politicians should take that to heart. The Federal Police temporarily detained Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, the former president, for questioning earlier this month in connection with a huge — and expanding — graft investigation. President Dilma Rousseff, Mr. da Silva’s handpicked successor, could be next.

The corruption scheme under investigation unfurled from 2003 to 2010, during Mr. da Silva’s two terms in office. Prosecutors allege that during that time Brazil’s biggest construction firms; the state-controlled oil giant, Petrobras; and the country’s political leaders traded bribes, padded contracts and political support in a vast, mutually beneficial scheme.

It was a shock to see Mr. da Silva brought in for questioning. He remains a towering, nearly mythic political figure. The furor that followed reflects his position: The leader of Mr. da Silva’s party, the Workers Party, in Congress called for “war.” Another legislator denounced the detention as the start of a state coup, conflating the suspicion falling on Mr. da Silva with an attack on his party and its political project.

So far, Ms. Rousseff has remained on the sidelines, but she is the one to watch. Over the past several weeks, the inquiry has gotten dangerously close to the president. She has let it run without interference. The danger is that now, with the investigation tugging at the bases of Brazil’s power structures, she will be tempted to step in.

Ms. Rousseff has reasons to worry. As Mr. da Silva’s appointee, she was chairwoman of the board of directors at Petrobras, the center of this web of corruption. Key figures in her inner circle are toppling and could take her down with them.

The strategist behind her two successful presidential campaigns wastaken into custody last month on suspicion of having received funds siphoned from the oil company into an offshore account. The Brazilian media reported recently that the former Workers Party Senate leader, who was arrested in November and charged with trying to obstruct the investigation, will denounce Mr. da Silva and Ms. Rousseff as part of a plea deal. While the effort to impeach the president on separate charges of using accounting shenanigans to cover up government overspending might be losing steam in Congress, a separate inquiry into her campaign financing could lead the judiciary to remove her from office.

As the investigators close in, some observers believe she may finally be tempted to try to impede their efforts. The recent resignation of the minister of justice, José Eduardo Cardozo, is one reason to worry. The Federal Police are autonomous, but under the purview of the Justice Ministry. Mr. Cardozo said that as investigators cornered political allies, he came under pressure for “not controlling the police like he should.” His departure raised concerns about the Federal Police’s integrity and fears that the force’s chief could be replaced with someone more pliant.

This is not the moment for Ms. Rousseff to falter. Her government’s credibility, among Brazilians and abroad, has been severely damaged. The president has a 35 percent chance of remaining in power until the end of her term in 2018, according to Eurasia Group, a political risk consultancy.

The crisis has restricted her ability to fix Brazil’s troubled economy: Increasingly isolated within her own party, she lacks the support to push through tough austerity measures. Joaquim Levy, the hawkish finance minister she appointed, found his efforts to cut spending and raise taxes opposed by Ms. Rousseff’s own party and a rebellious Congress. He resigned last December, prompting a plunge of Brazil’s currency and stock exchange.

All three ratings agencies have downgraded Brazil’s credit rating in recent months, citing mounting debt and political instability. Headlines rotate daily charges of graft, nepotism and influence peddling. The economy shrank by nearly 4 percent in 2015, and is not expected to revive substantially this year.

Corruption has been endemic in Brazilian politics for decades. An investigation as serious and far-reaching as this one is new for the country. For that reason, it is also inspiring.

This investigation was born of the painstaking, steady construction over years of anti-corruption legislation and of the institutions that put these laws into practice. Mr. da Silva played an important role in laying the groundwork for this, building up civil society and improving the judiciary. Ms. Rousseff herself signed the laws that allow suspects and companies in corruption cases to become informants in exchange for lighter sentences — one of the legal tools helping move the investigation forward.

Because this investigation has remained independent and unafraid to go after the country’s most powerful politicians, it has emerged not as a tool for coup-mongers, as some have charged, but as evidence of the country’s maturing democracy. Despite the headlines and the scandals, Brazil is now a place where the law applies to all, equally. Ms. Rousseff should recognize that this is worth preserving — even if it costs her the presidency.
