Barack Obama x McCain - Who's better ?

I'm really concerned about this presidential election in the US.
My concerning is about Mr. McCain as president having Mrs. Sarah Palin as VP (I see like G. Bush and his chief adviser, Dick Cheney) and I feel they will win - I hope I am thoroughly wrong.

Well, what do I have against them? Fear!
Fear of more war, fear of seeing they plunge their own country - and the world as consequence - into an abyss of conflicts, fear of more disrespect for other countries (such this present government has being doing) and fear of a looming frail economy.

I don't know if Obama and his running VP - Mr. Bider - is better them McCain and Sarah Palin but at least they think in dialogue rather than war - and this is really important!

It's up to American people make their choice.

Good luck, world!

Democracy ?

I had had to go to the polls today to choose the São Paulo's mayor.

I cannot understand this kind of "democracy" if we are obligated to vote! It shouldn't be an obligation.

And if I think neither of the candidates are good enough to be elected? Even so, do I have to go to the polls to annul my vote? It's ridiculous! I hope one day, our politicians come to their senses and think about this (if one day they stop thinking about themselves).

Sarah Palin II

Talking about Sarah Palin, have a look what I have just seen on CNN.com:

A second McCain source says she appears to be looking out for herself more than the McCain campaign.

"She is a diva. She takes no advice from anyone," said this McCain adviser. "She does not have any relationships of trust with any of us, her family or anyone else.

"Also, she is playing for her own future and sees herself as the next leader of the party. Remember: Divas trust only unto themselves, as they see themselves as the beginning and end of all wisdom."

So, at least I'm not the only person who realised it!

Sarah Palin - A beautiful woman without perception of reality

She is the 'sensation' of the moment.

I think would be funny to see Sarah Palin as VP of the USA. Why? Oh, guys, can you imagine a woman who has spent $150,000 dollars on clothing amid this global crisis leading the most powerful country in the Earth? She is very beautiful but period. She has no idea what she is doing; it's really funny! She talks a lot and - like others politicians - has solution for all kind of matter but the difference is that she doesn't think what she is speaking!

A beautiful woman without perception of reality!

PS: Remember that I'm not American and this is only my point of view.

Let's see what is going to happen in the US election.

Financial crisis

Everyone in the world has been passing through this financial crisis - except our Mr. President Lula!

Yeah! Do you believe this?
Our stock market and economy is getting lower and slower than ever and he said that we are going to have the best Christmas of our lives! I have no idea what he has in mind to say such nonsense!

Women, a wonderful creature

Today I'd like to talk about this theme: women. I'm not a pundit on this matter but I wanna just talk about this wonderful creation of God.

Yes, they're a wonderful creatures but very complicated to us - men - understand.

I cannot imagine a world without women, can you? I guess not.

Let's draw a parallel with men:
Usually men are ugly by nature. Yeah, our skin is uneven, we have hair all over the body, our nature make us behave sometimes in a wild manner (we have to shout, to say bad words) etc, that's is, almost everything opposite to women.
Women have a wonderful body (usually :-p) - with curves that drive us crazy -, marvellous skin (their skin are so cute!), terrific hair, fantastic faces, besides having such a different behavior (usually so understanding)! Those qualities and differences make ask myself "how can they like men?"
Well, thank God it happens!

However there are also things that I'll never understand, I think.
For example: Why do women make lots of questions and seldom stay quiet? Why do they always think we have other woman when we get home later than usual after a tiring day? Why do they not understand that we have friends, including other women? Why do they love spending money rather than save them to spend with useful things? Why do we always have to perceive when they changed their hair colors/cut (sometimes almost imperceptible) and do not understand why we do not notice? Why do we always have to start talking about sex if they also enjoy it? Why do they not understand that we love her even without saying "I love you" ?

Well, those are just a feel examples of questions that is pouring into my brain to try to understand this marvellous human being.

Despite this, I don't care about; I just love women!

Brazil - we also have nice things...

I'm receiving some emails of people asking me to say what we, Brazilians, have of interesting.

Well, before I say anything, I would like to tell you that we have LOTS of nice things to do around here. I know that I've been criticizing our politics and also have been explaining the difference between First Word and we - Third Word (who are Second ones?) - but through those lines, I'm just trying to prepare you to get not surprised when you first tread here.

When a foreigner think of Brazil, the first thing that come to his mind is: women, beaches and beer. If you are only thinking on these you are very poor informed.
Each part of Brazil has a local history, a different culture (talking of it visit the MASP - picture above - when you get in São Paulo), a wide range of dishes, and above all, wonderful and simple people doing everything to treat everyone with attention and kindness.
Telling about this, I would like to say that would be hard to find another people so pleasant as Brazilians!
We are also looking for making friends, smiling despite the problems, believing that one day everything will change and the coming days will always be better than the past ones.

Do not think I'm telling this to boast ourselves; it's just the true.
I had the opportunity to travel abroad and in the countries I was visiting, I didn't see any people so friendly like Brazilians. No, I'm not intending to say that people there were rude or something like that, I'm just saying that they're different, perhaps "cold".
This makes difference in our world. Despite having so many problems to deal with, we still have a smile on our faces to greet and meet you (considering that exceptions exist).

See you!
