Hey Brazilians
« on: May 01, 2017, 04:10:55 PM »
1. Have you ever met anyone from the province of Acre?
2. Are things getting worse in Brazil at the moment?
3. Biscoito or bolacha?
4. Is that judge who's charging politicians with corruption protecting the right?

But we can't be quite sure.

1- I knew a girl from Acre. The Atlético Paranaense's goalkeeper (and gold medal goalkeeper) is from Rio Branco, the Acre capital.
2- Yes. Very worse. We are moving backwards some decades with this new government.
3- The question is "biscoito" or "bolacha". In Paraná, is bolacha. The only pipsqueak who considers biscoito maybe would be André Geo.
4- Maybe. There is now a suspection that his wife would have connections with a politician from the right who is suspect of stole some millions from a NGO who help the people with intellectual disability.

1. No, but a friend has worked there as an army doctor.
2. Temer's government is a sick joke, though the fact that it is willing and able to steamroll wide-reaching reforms is not particularly funny. The political scenario is absurd, and we seem set for a very strange election year.
3. "Biscoito", though "bolacha" isn't unfamiliar to my ears either.
4. Not specifically about Moro: the impeachment consisted in, to paraphrase a fine characterisation I heard the other day, throwing the newest partner of the consortium of power to the wolves. Let's just say I will be surprised if, say, Aécio or Alckmin end up getting a dose of the same medicine.

But I looked that guy up on Wikipedia and he seemed also to be a social-democratic politician. So why is it surprising?
But we can't be quite sure.

The brazilian party called "social-democratic" is neoliberal since the 90s and became more conservative throught the years. There are now a lot of politicians of BBB group (bala-boi-bíblia / guns-ox-bible). Is like the danish right-wing party called left.
