      And Brazil…..
      …should finally listen carefully !!!!

      Because so far your schooling education has been less than good and not all youths were able to receive education from your previous/actual governments !!!!

      Your government and politicians should care more about the well being of the whole brazilian society, and care less for their impunity through corruption and only their own well being !
