Brazil is second to the US in the number of transmissions monitored? Brazil? That's an eye-opener. Why would Brazil be of so much concern to the US?

Have a look see.

Images of Brasil

I see what you mean

Heheh.

I'm thinking it's their vast resources. And recently, their opposition to Monsatan definitely plays a part.

You Dog You - nice picture though.

No doubt - empire hates hold-outs - and wants to control/own ALL resources.

Yeah, I'd tap her phone any day.

I'm glad to see countries finally putting their foot down in regards to our empire building. It's about damn time. And Brazil has a LOT of untapped resources. No telling what medical discoveries await in the Amazonian rainforest, for one.

And truthfully, if places like South America would put us in our place, it'd be better for all, us included. Then maybe those clowns in DC and VA would start to focus a little closer to home. Finally fix OUR problems.

Hi gnomunny, You made some good points here. The "empire building" thing must end.

[-] 1 points by gnomunny (6614) from St Louis, MO 1 year ago

Hey, Nev1. Thanks, but of course, it's not my idea really. It does seem to make sense though. I was kind of blown away when I read in another post a few nights ago that our government is getting ready to give something like $8 billion in aid to help build infrastructure in Africa, with another $7 billion matched from private "donors." Jeez, with all the infrastructure we have here that is in critical condition, how can they justify doing that?

Whenever I hear about the US government spending money on 'infrastructure projects' in foreign countries, especially third-world countries, the first thing I think is "phase one of resource extraction."

[-] 3 points by Nevada1 (4784) 1 year ago

Exactly,' resource extraction'. And US gets 'sacrifice zones'.

[-] 3 points by gnomunny (6614) from St Louis, MO 1 year ago

Yep. Ever expanding sacrifice zones.

Everyone should see this link. 'Corporate War Of Aggression'. USG is illegitimate.

[-] 2 points by gnomunny (6614) from St Louis, MO 1 year ago

I agree on both counts. Hedges, I think, has an impressive grasp of the big picture.

Let us just pray and advocate that it does not get cut down and/or burned.

And we have so damn many problems to fix due to the neglect as well as to greed.

[-] 1 points by gnomunny (6614) from St Louis, MO 1 year ago

Yeah, they're cutting down the rainforest at an alarming rate. Not only is it the lungs of the planet, they're doing it to create farmland, which the world doesn't really need. It reminds me of that quote I posted last night where that guy said "the truth is to get a piece of the future businesses," in this case biofuels. Which will be produced using GMOs. That's one of the biggies with all this interest in what's going on in Brazil.

Thanx

[-] 2 points by gnomunny (6614) from St Louis, MO 1 year ago

You're welcome.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (26693) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Could very well be - But - what an awful waste of the rain forest - the lungs and so much more of this planet.

[-] 1 points by gnomunny (6614) from St Louis, MO 1 year ago

Once it's gone you can't replace it. It's a damn shame.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (26693) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Just like any life - once taken can not be returned.

[-] 1 points by gnomunny (6614) from St Louis, MO 1 year ago

Not to mention the loss of indigenous people.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (26693) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Innocent thriving culture - untarnished by the rest of the world.

[-] 1 points by gnomunny (6614) from St Louis, MO 1 year ago

Untarnished and should stay that way.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (26693) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

It really should.

Yes Herr Hitler. Keep censoring.

Patriota's remarks were in response to a report in the Globo daily newspaper on Sunday saying that the U.S. National Security Agency has been monitoring the telephone and e-mail activity of Brazilian companies and individuals as part of U.S. espionage activities.

How else R the corp(se)oRATions gonna know how deep the shit is that they are standing in? Unless ol uncle sam helps em out.

[-] 1 points by Nevada1 (4784) 1 year ago

Hi DKA, Thank you for good summary. USG sure is nosey.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (26693) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Hey Nevada1 - and they think that they are being so slick. Or is it till recently that they never figured someone would have the guts to call em on it?
