Good. Corruption, misappropriation of public funds and abuse of power are endemic in developing countries (including mine). I am glad to see that despite it’s flaws Brazil’s democracy is mature enough to correct such excesses and abuses by removing the official responsible…

Something America could learn from.

Hmmmm.

No body picked up on the fact that the impeached and removed President is a woman.

I wouldn’t remove ours. Leave him vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard for all I care.

The two other American Presidents who WERE impeached (but not removed) did far less in my opinion.

Love is patient. Love is kind. :shrug: Term limits come due in 3 1/2 months. I can wait.

Will have to read up on Brazil’s problems. They took quite a PR hit with all the criticisms of the Olympics.

Another place … besides Venezuela … where socialism of the 21st Century collapses … in Brazil … here’s why it failed.

Why? Does that make a difference?
