Rio Olympics display Mimicking American president-elect Barack Obama battle cry during his winning electoral campaign, Rio de Janeiro governor Sérgio Cabral, who is in Istambul trying to get the 2016 Olympic Games to Brazil, told members of the International Olympic Committee:  "Yes, we can."

    Rio is competing with Chicago, Madrid and Tokyo for the right to host those games. For Cabral, who seemed confident of the Brazilian victory, Rio has something very important to offer: the commitment of the federal government to work close to the city of Rio de Janeiro to guarantee the success of the Olympics.

    "We are making a commitment here to do our homework. What's still missing in transportation infrastructure and equipments, will be done with joint hands: city hall, federal government and state government together. That's why I say repeating president Obama that "Yes, we can," the governor said, using English for the future president slogan.

    The four cities bidding to host the Olympics will present, this Friday, November 21, their cases to the assembly of European Olympic Committees. Chicago's presentation is expected to include a videotape message from Obama, who was until recently a US senator from Illinois. The president-elect lives on Chicago's south side.

    Anti-U.S. sentiment worldwide was reflected in Olympic politics with New York defeated in its bid for the 2012 Games.  But Obama's election has changed the dynamics of this competition.

    The US Olympic committee are counting on president Obama attending the IOC meeting in Copenhagen when the host city will be chosen next year on October 2, 2009. 

    According to governor Cabral, among the infrastructure projects that he promised to have ready on time there are the remodeled Tom Jobim International Airport, access roads, subway lines, bus corridors and enough hotel rooms to satisfy the IOC requirements.

    "I came here to make it clear to the member of the International Olympic Committee that this is a project involving all levels of the government and that Rio's mayor elect is responsible to make this happen."

    "This is an occasion for the IOC to make a historical decision: to change in order to give a chance to the youth of all the continents to host the Olympic Games, said Carlos Arthur Nuzman, the president of the Brazilian Olympic Committee.

      Dear idiot USAMALE…TRANNY !
      Sorry but we did not asked any foreign firm to develop our nation !

      And about your “Concentrate more on your own nation that can’t live without it’s high protected subisdies to compete with the rest of the world. “

      But…..but….for the time being it is the USA Government that took over BANKRUPT AIG, IndyMac, provide subsidized government loans of $ 25 billion to your crap car makers that no one wants….not even americans.
      And…and…and….$ 25 Billion are not enough. Your 3 cars makers have their ass on the floor if not another $ 50 billion are not provided shortly….using their own estimates, not mine.
      SORRY TRANNY

      Better yet :
      Your Crooks in your Government LIED for the WMD in Iraq. Hip hip America….Hip hip America !
      Reality :
      Instead…..there was a financial WMD with your TOXIC debts, spreaded to the World Over…including Over America….that put the World Financial Markets at today problem. And this mostly to finance YOUR REAL ESTATE BOOM !!!!!
      NOW YOU ARE IN A BURSTING MODE. Feel free to fill your holes…..in the bathroom !

      Lets face it GAAP is an American term Generally Accepted Accounting Principle ! Right ?

      What was the rule for your banks ?

      Simple :
      Put all these debts to (Caribeans Islands….not Switzerland sorry for you Tranny) OFFSHORE SIVs
      SIV means Special Investments Vehicles
      TRILLIONS OF US$ were put into these SHELL companies. NOOOOOO….Capital required…if your read your own SOURCES !
      That meant also OFF BALANCE SHEET !
      That meant NOT TAXED…since OFF BALANCE SHEET…..by defintion….during the booming phase !
      And when the sh.t hit the fan….noooooo problem….your banks had to rappatriate these JUNK debts…INTO THEIR BALANCE SHEETS !
      THAT MEANT NOW……HUGE LOSSES CARRY FORWARD…FOR YEARS TO COME !!!!!!

      Who has TAX EVADED WHO ???? THE IRS LEGALLY ALLOWED U.S. BANKS FOR TAX EVASION during the booming times, and then NOW IS ALLOWING TO REDUCE THE BANK TAXES DUE TO YOUR GIGANTIC LOSSES !!!!

      A GREAT TAX SCAM BY YOUR OWN IRS AND GOVERNMENTS MEMBERS !!!!!

      Also a GREAT GREAT AUTO-GOAL !!!! Hip hip America, hip hip America !!!!

      Not over TRANNY ;
      A few months ago, one of your official crook at a conference said “Strange that in the BVIs there are buildings with 4000-5000
      Corporations”
      Someone answered “Strange may be, but not more strange that some buildings in Delaware States having 100’000 Corporations”

      Are you playing at the Ostriches Favorite Game ??????
      You should be the happiest tranny at that game, someone unknown could take you from the rear !!!!!

      Fact is that WALL STREET CROOKS with the blessing and support from Washington have created ALL BUBBLES….FOLLOWED BY BURSTS !!!! From the stocks markets, to debts markets, to commodities, to currencies, to derivatives, to structured notes, to real estate or just name it !

      I know it better than you DUMBASS, I worked for LARGE Wall Street firms from 1972 to 2003 !

      but….but…but…. I love WALL STREET, I love America, I understand their tricks having lived real time 8 Bears Markets !!!!

      Last but not least :
      – It is America that is financed, not the other way around contrary to what you pretend. It is America that wants everything for free and not the otherway around !
      – Are New York and Miami not the banking capitals for South Americans TAX EVADERS AND ALSO FOR THEIR CORRUPTED MONEY.
      Not only banks, but also for their hidden REAL ESTATE there !
      – Are Miami and New York not the World Banking Capitals for cocaÀƒ¯ne and whatever drugs or illicit traffics ?
      – Where do you believe that the 2 previous Bolivian Presidents are hidden and protected ? In the USA…of course…if you did not know !

      Since USAFLUFFYMALE IS NOT VERY WELL INFORMED ON DELAWARE TAXES AND WHO IS THERE, here is a few readings, scary readings
      – More than 60% of Fortune 500 companies form in Delaware and the numbers continue to grow.
      http://www.thedelawarecompany.com/why_delaware.aspx

      – Delaware incorporations $559/$99, Simple only with OfshoreSimple.com

      – Delaware offshore company formation, bank accounts, trusts, tax minimization, anonymity, offshore banking, debit cards, investments, Delaware offshore incorporation.

      This is just a few of the thousands and thousands internet offerings to set up shops in……DELAWARE – UNITED STATES OF AMERICA…THE WORLD LARGEST COUNTRY FOR TAX EVASION…if you did not know yet !

      AND REVIEW YOUR U.S. GOVERNMENT SUBSIDIES BY THE SAME TIME : OVER $ 300 BILLION ALREADY VOTED FOR THE NEXT 4 YEARS.
      AND THEN ONLY COME BACK ON SWITZERLAND IF YOU WISH !

      SORRY TOO LATE, SOMEONE GOT YOU FROM YOUR REAR AND VERY DEEP !!!!

      Ch. is trying so hard…for what? nothing..
      but too bad you’re full of crap again the Ecuadorians complain about the quality of a hydroelectric power plant built by Rio de Janeiro-based Construtora Norberto Odebrecht SA. It’s pure that Ecuadorians want to behave like the swiss after world war 1 and 2, “just build up my nation for free”. My country was close to bomb the hell out of your nation, but didn’t do it. Concentrate more on your own nation that can’t live without it’s high protected subisdies to compete with the rest of the world.

      hay joao
      to start as long as the brasilian ships stay along the coast of brasil

      they should be safe up to the AMAZON any thing north of that is open to

      free will as surnam and chaves land are going bad quick

      there is a place along bihaia that is sort of off the wall.

      most people only have to worrie about them coming on board

      to rob the people as the ships go past not take the whole ship.

      as there is no place for them to go with the whole ship.

      another is the growing influx of muslim in the south along the
      3 borders reagion with no real law and if there were they can be
      bought you never know what my come about down there

      [quote]There is also a certainty there is rain between Brazil and Ecuador…for quite a while !
      http://bloomberg.com/apps/news…n_america [/quote]

      I read this news in “EstadÀƒ£o” and posted the link to Alex Sanchez of COHA in the other site under his latest article seeking his opinion as how to resolve this problem. Awaiting his response.

      To Forrest:

      [quote]keep dry joao [/quote]

      Thanks Forrest. You keep safe from the pirates too. BTW, my wife says that it is not going to be too long before the Cruise ships along the Brazilian coast are going to hijacked by the pirates. Some months ago, you were commenting on the real purpose for the IV fleet being reactivated. Your line of reasoning (and that of The Guest) seems to be absolutely correct.

      Chilean Volcano “The forecast is that it is going to rain until the end of March.”
      There is also a certainty there is rain between Brazil and Ecuador…for quite a while !
      http://bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601086&sid=anx1ofSx7OLY&refer=latin_america

      Ecuador is not happy at all…….over the quality of a hydroelectric power plant built by Rio de Janeiro-based Construtora Norberto Odebrecht SA.

      Therefore Forrest is certainly NOT wrong in his assessments !

      Brazil can only build cheap and bad quality infrastructure.

      AGAIN WITH THIS
      BRASIL on its best day could never pull off the games .

      no money in the first place and even if you got it togeather
      some politican would rob the kitty blind

      and the price would go 20 times over buget
      be behind by a year , never finished , substander concret would colaps under the strain of the people .
      no place to build it ,
      no air port to move the people .
      no proper housing .

      then the killings , rapes , robries.
      lack of police , no justice for the tourist ,
      no one goes to jail for the crimes .

      I CHANGED MY MIND GO AHEAD HAVE THE GAMES PROVE TO THE WORLD WHAT TYPE OF COUNTRY BRASIL IS
      WHEN YOU GET DOWN TO IT
