Due to the high price of the commodities the economy is fine, the commies in the government are thieves but they aren't crazy to mess with the BC (brazilian FED) politics and destroy the country like Chavez and the Argetinians do. Do you know something about brazilian history?
Welcome J.P! I always like to ask those from other countries what the general opinion of their "real" people (not government) is of the United States. Can't remember anyone else from Brazil in here. It's OK if you say that we aren't highly regarded there as our government seems to sometimes do things that tend to make us unpopular abroad. Hope you approve of the people in this forum. That is all that really matters. Again, welcome.
Well Scruggs, most people in Brazil don't like US because of the everyday anti-american brainwash in TV, newspapers and schools. They don't know nothing about politics, history or economy, they just repeat what people say on TV. As the american consuless in Brazil said: "The anti americanism in Brazil measures 1 mile of length, but 1 inch of thickness".
I'm not a typical brazilian. I love US and to say it here is almost a crime. I have a lot of fun seeing people becoming angry and without arguments when I support US. It's hilarious.
You shouldn't worry about what people think about US, especially the brazilians, they are not a threat.
