I think we’re both aware of a “progressive” example of what not to do in that regard: “So, it seems like Mitt Romney thinks X. What a jerk! And check out what this charter school did in RI. As if there was any doubt about the corporatist agenda! [insert news headline][insert throwaway partisan talking point] etc., etc., etc.”

Brazil has the eighth most billionaires in the world, and massive poverty.
Just one more fact that proves Reagan’s loony “trickle down economics” is voodoo economics as George Bush Sr taught us

Sammy,
Brazil also has a larger army than we do. Should we kick up the size of our military?
