I don't think any Americans really care if the people from Brazil feel tarnished. This is just another story of the elite going after the elite, 'cept this boy has an accent. Such a waste of screen time.

Did you just say the economy in the US is stable? Stable like GM or stable like Citibank? Or stable like the real estate market?
It's called a recession and it's happened before. 200+ years of stability doesn't come without a few bumps, genius.

Relative to your banana republics down here in South America, the US Treasury is a sure bet. That's why your government and others park money in the US. That's also why the US dollar is used right alongside the domestic currency and in some cases preferred in much of South America.

There's a reason Brazilians and others from SA are in the United States--back home they would either starve to death or prostitute themselves and their children openly in the slums.

so I am assuming you are in Peru because you either went on a starvation diet or because you are a gay male prostitute. I would guess the second.

Nope, I'm not Peruvian or Brazilian, thank God. But I've been to Brazil, and other SA nations, and all I can say is Wow, people actually live in THAT?

You're a weakling.

I have employed brazilians in the past and I have learned my lesson. Whether male or female, invariably they are thieves, swindlers and hookers.
I've had more stuff disappearing from my house, it makes me sick just thinking about it. They brag about their sexual prowess but all that amounts to is another way to make money... and badly.
Any surprise why their country is so riddled with crime and corruption?
Oh, and most of them are in this country illegally.

Talking about mortgage fraud....A)Who sold to Europe and Asia all those bad loans? B)Who married the brazilians? C)Who makes them to drive unlicensed? D)Tax evasion....Who built Cayman Island? E)Who Killed thousands of people for oil? I can tell you that wasn't all the americans, just the stuped and ignorants.That is good and bad people all over the world.

Well. I've beem here for the last 20 years. I came invited by an American company due to my performance at their offices down there. During this period I've became their IT Vice President and naturalized myself and have an American son. I didn't run my dear, in fact I've brought something good otherwise I wouldn't get where I'm today....

Brazil is the second highest violater of u.s. immigration laws....in fact if you are illegal in brazil you are arrested by the local police simply from a phone call by any brazilian who might spot you...we here in the u.s. would like to reciprocate and establish a 800 number to call when you come across a illegal brazilian in pompano,margate,deerfield, etc.by the way,,,brazil is a quasi-socialist country with a very high crime rate and very anti-american..u.s. state dept. warns americans travelling there to use extreme caution ,americans are targets for theives,pickpockets,etc.we can only imagine how many of these anti-american theives,criminals,pickpockets, have entered the u.s. via mexico or with fraudelent documents to ply their trades here....
