    Oh boy, she is an intense speaker! I listened for about 10 minutes then, gave up. [Seems like I’m not fitting in anywhere tonight – first in the I-pad language club, now here.] I think I’ll just take a last look at the weekend pictures then go to bed. Sleep well, everyone!

    President Dilma Rousseff is a very brave woman who once was a Marxist guerrilla who was imprisoned for three years and tortured under Brazil’s military dictatorship in the early 1970s. Right before she ran for the Presidency she was not concerned with how she looked or dressed and was a right to the point kind of person. Rather harsh mannerisms due to her past experiences.

    To run for the office she had a complete makeover, hair, plastic surgery, you name it she had it. Unfortunately since there is more about this on Huff Post I will not link to it but I did find a very small article on MSNBC linked below.
    I think she looks terrific.


    I am so tired and ready for bed that I hope this wasn’t already posted on here Stix. Good night all.

    Ok, so I’m going to hit this from both ends. I am going to both compliment, and then critisize. I think the speech in the first video was inspiring, and I think this theme held throughout. Oh my, how does he do it without a teleprompter? Could it be that he may know a thing or two? There was a moment where our drug trafficking problem on our borders was mentioned, and the people in the Chilean audience seemed somewhat aloof. But the President wasn’t speaking to just Chile.

    On another note, I am highly annoyed by the questions that were submitted from our press while our President was in El Salvador. I wanted to hear about trade with El Salvador, and the press was given 2 shots to ask questions about it. What questions did they choose to ask?

    Well, Julianna Goldman from Bloomberg (cgh) and Savannah Guthrie of NBC both asked questions that would amount to being called a troll on the the internet. Completely out of context that had nothing to do with the subject at hand, they asked about Libya. Now, I’m not trying to deflate the importance of Libya, but this was manufactured cowpie.

    The entire media is out of balance. They need to check themselves before they get checked.

      Oh, and for those of you who think I would deminish free speech by using our government – I would not do that. But we do live in a free society, and there are other ways that We the People can fight back. Our media currently is not representing a free press, but distorting our values and our viewpoints. After watching this, I aim to change that.
