É verdade.

Fériazinhas, peixinho e saladinha, muito fósforo e praia.
É para a inveja. E poderia não ser mete-nojo?
Poderia, mas não seria a mesma coisa. A ver se deixo fotos.

Ora reza assim a coisa (em letrinha pequenina):







Socialist Party 
1. What kind of relationship and information flow that existed at that time between the administration and shareholder of PT? 
The shareholder, as owner of 500 shares of PT Category A, and maintained a relationship as a shareholder in accordance with the law and the statutes of the company, like any other shareholder, and an inherent relationship to the special rights attached to those shares Category A. In this context, the information provided to shareholders were and are those arising from the enforcement of those statutes and, in particular in relation to matters covered by the special rights attached to shares listed in category A. The information on the PT are transmitted to the shareholder by the Chairman of the Board, with the State for that purpose, represented by the Minister responsible for communications. 
2. As the State establishes its relationship with PT, in particular as regards the exercise of the powers conferred by class A shares he holds in that company? 
Relations with PT set up by the Minister responsible for communications, for which purpose it relates directly to the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the company. The exercise of the powers conferred by the shares of Class A is held in accordance with law and statutes of the company's headquarters in the General Assembly. 
3. Was provided to the Prime Minister any information about the purchase of a PT by a minority shareholding in Media Capital? 
Until the day June 25, 2009, at night, I never was given any information about the purchase by PT a minority shareholding in Media Capital, although the matter has been in the news media - whose foundation unknown - and PT and Media Capital have submitted to the CMVM reported on the ongoing negotiations. Thus, I was first informed on June 25, during a dinner, the President of the Board of Directors of PT, he has conveyed that there had been talks between PT and Prisa on Media Capital but that the matter had not even been scheduled for the Board of Directors of PT performed the same day and he did not consider the business need. 
4. On what date PT informed the Prime Minister on the possible purchase of a minority shareholding in Media Capital? 
Only on June 25, 2009, at night, through the Chairman of the Board of Directors of PT, as referred to in the previous answer. 
5. Knowledge that the Prime - Minister had the interest and the steps taken by PT in view of the business of buying a share of Media Capital? 
As stated in previous answers to two questions, the only information I have received about this business I was given by the President of the Board of Directors of PT already on June 25, 2009, at night, the terms mentioned in response to question 
number 3. Until then, just read references to the subject in the news media, whose foundation was unaware of. And, soon after the parliamentary debate of the day June 24 2009, knew of the existence of communications sent by PT and Media Capital to the CMVM. 
5. What role did the Prime Minister in the abandonment of the process of attempting to purchase one share of Media Capital? 
In the case of an enterprise, only Portugal Telecom may give explanations, as indeed has already done on determining the reasons she was leaving the attempted acquisition of a share of Media Capital. For my part, I can only say that on June 25, 2009, in the afternoon, I spoke with the Minister of Public Works, Transport and Communications and decided that this would convey to the President of the Board of Directors of PT that the Government did not agreed with the deal done, so that there was the slightest suspicion that, under the influence of the government, buying part of TVI was intended to change the editorial policy of this television station. This decision was taken on the basis of the evaluation made at the time of impact and the public alarm prompted by suspicions that were launched by the political controversy that has surrounded this issue, particularly following the television interview given by the then leader of the largest party opposition on the night of the 24th, and the intervention of the President of the Republic, on the morning of day 25. The communication from the Government's opposition to the deal was made by the Minister of Public Works, Transport and Communications the very next day, June 26, early in the morning. 
Social Democratic Party 
7. At what point is that the Government was aware that PT was interested or otherwise expressed interest in acquiring a stake in the Prisa Media Capital? 
The first information provided by PT to the Government on this matter took place on June 25, 2009, at night, as referred to in responses to questions number 3, 4:05, to which reference is made. In addition, the Government only became aware that the PT was interested or otherwise expressed interest in acquiring a stake in the Prisa Media Capital after the public disclosure of communications from PT Media Capital and sent to the CMVM, as also cited in answer to question number 5. As for news about it, disseminated by the media before the 24th, the Government totally unaware his plea, did not allow for that knowledge by the government of a real and effective interest in PT Prisa in acquiring a stake in the Media Capital. 
8. When learned that sent the PT Market Commission (CMVM) Press Release of June 23, in which it confirmed "the existence of contacts between the Prisa Group and Portugal Telecom. Such contacts have addressed various investment scenarios, including the possible acquisition of a stake in Media Capital and forms of relationships between the company and PT? 
I understand this Notice of PT on June 24, 2009, cited after the parliamentary debate in which I participated, as mentioned in answer to question number 5. 
9. Ever at the head of PT personally informed, particularly before June 25, 2009, about a possible acquisition by PT of an equity stake in Media Capital? 
No official of the PT told me personally before the day June 25, 2009, at night, about a possible acquisition by PT of an equity stake in Media Capital. This information was provided only me on the night of June 25, in terms that appear in the answer to question number 3. 
10. Is there any communication or information exchange between PT and his cabinet regarding the potential deal to acquire share capital of Media Capital? 
Considers this a normal situation or in this case took an exceptional? 
No. There was no communication or information exchange between PT and my Office regarding the potential deal to acquire part of Media Capital and I consider this normal. 
11. Have you ever dealt with Eng Lino the possible purchase of a stake in Media Capital by PT? When and where the content of the conversation? 
Only addressed this issue with the then Minister of Public Works, Transport and Communications on the afternoon of June 25, 2009, as referred to in the answer to question number 6. In this conversation we decided that the Secretary would transmit to the President of the Board of Directors of PT that the Government did not agree with the deal done, so that there was the slightest suspicion that, under the influence of the government, buying part of TVI is intended to change the editorial policy of this television station. This decision was taken on the basis of the evaluation made at the time of impact and the public alarm prompted by suspicions that were launched by the political controversy that has surrounded this issue, particularly following the television interview given by the then leader of the largest party opposition on the night of the 24th, and the intervention of the President of the Republic, on the morning of day 25.
12. When he decided that the Government would oppose the possible acquisition by PT of an equity stake in Media Capital? 
On June 25, 2009, afternoon when I analyzed the issue with the then Minister of Public Works, Transport and Communications, as referred to in answer to questions numbers 6:11. 
13. Who and when informed that the Government would oppose the possible acquisition by PT of an equity stake in Media Capital? (PSD) The Government informed the administration of Prisa, Media Capital TVI or your decision? (BE) 
The communication from the Government of disagreement concerning the implementation of the deal was made by the then Minister of Public Works, Transport and Communications to the President of the Board of Directors of PT on June 26, 2009, as referred to in the answer to question number 6 . Government has not reported such discord in the administration of Prisa, the Media Capital or TVI. 
14. Have you ever talked with the President of the Spanish Government, José Luis Zapatero, on issues involving the availability of Prisa dispose of the share capital of Media Capital, in particular regarding a possible acquisition by PT? 
No. I never spoke with the President of the Spanish Government, José Luis Zapatero, on issues involving the availability of Prisa dispose of the share capital of Media Capital, namely PT. And take this opportunity to clarify that this issue has never spoken in person or by telephone, with the King of Spain. (...) 
16. Having him Dr. Granadeiro notified June 25, 2009 that PT had considered not appropriate to then acquire an equity stake in Media Capital, said publicly why the next day that "The Government has decided to speak this morning with the administration PT to announce that it will oppose this business can be done? (PSD) because the Government decided to proceed with the meeting days of June 26, 2009 with directors of PT Granadeiro if you had already passed the deal would not go on? (PCP) 
As I said in answer to question number 6, was on the afternoon of 25 I and the then Minister of Public Works, Transport and Communications decided that the Government should clarify and make public its opposition to completing the deal between PT and Prisa on the Media Capital, for which there was the slightest suspicion that, under the influence of the government, buying part of TVI was intended to change the editorial policy of this television station. And it decided on the basis of the assessment we made of the impact and public alarm prompted by suspicions that were launched by the political controversy generated around the subject, particularly following the television interview given by the then leader of the largest opposition party on the evening of day 24, and the intervention of the President of the Republic, on the morning of day 25. Although the information provided by the resident of the Board of Directors of PT, on the night of 25, the communication of the position of the government kept all their relevance, especially after the Engineer Zeinal Bava, Chief Executive Officer of PT, have since that night of 25 June 2009, an interview with a television station in which he defended the business in light of the strategic interest of PT. (...) 
18. He met with Dr. Armando Vara on June 25? If yes, discussed with Dr. Armando Vara potential business to acquire part of Media Capital by PT? In what sense? 
I do not remember having met with Dr. Armando Vara on June 25, 2009. In any case, never discussed with him matters relating to a possible acquisition by PT of an equity stake in Media Capital. 
19. Have you ever talked to the ladies or Juan Luis Cebrián Manuel Polanco, administrators Prisa, about a possible sale of Media Capital, including the PT? 
I recall that in 2005 received leaders of Prisa, in a hearing that I was requested, following its decision to acquire the Media Capital, which owns the TVI. I never spoke with the ladies or Juan Luis Cebrián Manuel Polanco on a possible sale of Media Capital, owner of TVI, namely PT. 
20. Have you ever talked with Dr. Rui Pedro Soares on issues involving the PT? 
I never spoke with Dr. Rui Pedro Soares on issues involving the PT and Prisa or about the possible acquisition by PT a share of the capital of Media Capital. 
21. During his hearing this Commission of Inquiry, on 21 April, Rui Pedro Soares pointed out that "If ever invoked in private conversations, or other (...) if I did, did so wrongfully and I have to take responsibility, accept all the consequences and ask for apologies for Prime Minister "(PSD). Are you aware that in some circumstance, your name has been abused by Rui Pedro Soares and others on matters relating to the business Portugal Telecom / TVI? (BE). Tried since then to clarify some form which meant Dr. Rui Pedro Soares? Any legal action brought against Dr. Rui Pedro Soares? (PSD) 
No. I have no knowledge, nor took any initiative or diligence in that regard. 
22. The February 22, 2010, the Lord said "If someone invoked my name, it claimed incorrectly, as I have never discussed this matter with anyone, and never gave guidance and never asked whether he would or would not, so pure and simply not true. " Considering the previous question, when he gave this statement was referring to Dr. Rui Pedro Soares? 
No. This statement was not directed at anyone in particular. 
23. Have you ever talked with Dr. Armando Vara on the editorial of information from TVI? 
Under what terms? 
I can not ensure that you have spoken with Dr. Armando Vara on this subject but it is very likely that it has done so since it was a much discussed subject in Portuguese society, particularly in political circles. What if I have certainly been in critical terms, in line with the references I made in public about it. 
24. Have you ever talked with Dr. Armando Vara about a possible entry Taguspark or PT in the capital of Media Capital? On what terms?

No. I never spoke with the lawyer Jose Miguel Júdice about it. 
29. Are you aware that Dr. Granadeiro has spoken with Eng Lino about the acquisition by PT Media Capital to Prisa? When? Know the terms of these conversations? 
No, I have no knowledge. The only conversation that I know between the then Minister of Public Works, Transport and Communications and the President of Portugal Telecom was the one that occurred on June 26, 2009, morning, as provided above in answer to question number 6. 
30. On the afternoon of June 25, 2009, the Minister of Presidency stated publicly that "the actors of the business say there is no prospect of business," referring to the possible acquisition by PT, a stake in Media Capital . How and when the government obtained this information? 
As the Minister of the Presidency has stated and proved in this Commission, all his statements on the afternoon of 25 were based on information that was public and had been supplied by the business stakeholders. In the case referred to this question, the public information in question appears on the news agency Lusa 00h14 of the day June 25, 2009. 
31. Who and when it decided to suspend or cancel a possible acquisition of a stake in Media Capital by PT? 
In the case of an enterprise, only PT can give this explanation, as indeed has already done. I can only answer for the position taken by the Government. This position was decided on the afternoon of June 25, 2009 and was sent to PT in the morning of 26. 
32. You agree that PT, undertaking over which the Portuguese State has a golden share, may hold shares in entities which own the media Portuguese, as is, for example the case of Media Capital, the entity holding the TVI? 
While this question is not intended to obtain any clarification on the facts, I recall that my opinion on this subject is long known: no government should interfere in the media, particularly through the holding by PT of shares in entities proprietary media. (...) 
34. Have you ever talked with the President of the Spanish Government, José Luis Zapatero, regarding the sale of the Media Capital to Prisa, which occurred in 2005?

No. 
36.Alguma once told by themselves or through third parties, with Dr. Pina Moura, as President of the Board of Media Capital, on the editorial line of TVI and in particular on the "Jornal Nacional", when this was hosted by Manuela Moura Guedes? 
I do not recall having reviewed this matter with dr. Pina Moura, but it is likely that this happened because it was a much discussed subject in Portuguese society, particularly in political circles. In any case, if indeed talked with dr. Pina Moura on this topic, I did not, surely, in his capacity as Chairman of the Board of Directors of Media Capital but in the same way that I commented on the subject with several acquaintances. 
37.Teve knowledge of the involvement of Dr. Antonio Vitorino in preparatory meetings for the sale by Prisa, a part of its stake in Media Capital? If so, what is the capacity in which Dr. Vitorino intervened?

Social Democratic Center (CDS) - Party People 
38. Ever the Prime Minister or someone from his office dealt with any matter related to PT? If so, what matter, with whom and in what context? 
Although this question is very generic, pouring, clearly, the subject of this investigation and the period to which it refers, I reply that the affairs of the relationship between the State and PT are treated by the Minister responsible for communications. As my job as Prime Minister, monitor and coordinate, of course, the action carried out by all ministries including the Ministry of Public Works, Transport and Communications. In this picture, I had some meetings with the Minister of Public Works, Transport and Communications and Chairman of the Board of Directors of PT on various subjects, but never on the acquisition of Media Capital. 
39. Who represented the Portuguese State in the negotiation of the final two candidate lists to the Board of Directors of PT? The State did, he said, suggested and / or vetoed any member of these lists? Dr. Rui Pedro Soares and / or Dr. Fernando Soares Carneiro indicated, suggested and / or imposed by the State in these negotiations? 
Never been involved in negotiating or composition of the lists candidates for the Board of Directors of PT. The relationship with the state shareholder of PT, as holder of 500 shares of Class A, was and is assured by the Minister responsible for communications in accordance with previously mentioned in the response numbers 1 and 2. 
40. Meet Dr. Rui Pedro Soares? If so, when, under what circumstances and how to characterize the relationship he has with him? 
I am a friend of Dr. Rui Peter Smith and I know him for, roughly, half a dozen years. (...) 
42. According to news reports at the time, the head of Mediapro came to Portugal in February 2009 to talk with the government and entrepreneurs, possibly on the possible purchase of TVI. Are you aware that any member of the Government or a Cabinet has met with him? For what purpose? 
No. I do not know. 
43. He had some meeting with Dr. Granadeiro between 21 to June 23, 2009? If so, he was informed of the intention of PT to acquire a share in the capital of Media Capital? 
No. I had no meeting with Dr. Granadeiro between 21 and 23 June 2009. (...) 
45. Dr. Granadeiro has said that "the only time I talked to Prime Minister on this matter was to inform him that we would send a statement to the CMVM to announce that we were considering buying a stake in TVI" and that before sending the information to the press release had already been given to the Prime Minister and Minister of Public Works "because it would be a discourtesy to know the website of the CMVM. This statement was sent to the CMVM June 23, 2009 by 21h11m. Later Dr. Granadeiro denied this version of events, but it is necessary to ask him, was aware of this intention of business prior to sending the statement? If not, considered a discourtesy have learned by the CMVM's website? 
No, I was not aware of any intention of business prior to sending the Notice and the CMVM PT do not think there has been any discourtesy. 
46. This occasion was informed that the deal would not proceed, and that the decision had already been taken by the Chairman of the Board and CEO of PT in the morning of that day (25)? If so, why he gave guidance to the Minister of Public Works to inform the company of the negative position of the shareholder? And what did the fact that the CEO has given an interview to defend the benefits of the business while the Chairman of the Board informed him that the deal would not go forward? 
As I have already answered the question regarding the number three, which I was informed by the President of the Board of Directors of PT, on the night of June 25, 2009, was that there had been talks between PT and Prisa but the business had not even been scheduled for the Board of Directors of PT which will be held that same day. More informed that it considered appropriate to the business. Despite this information, the communication from the Government's position, taken for reasons already explained (in reply to questions numbers 6:16), kept all their relevance, especially after the Engineer Zeinal Bava, Chief Executive Officer of PT, have since that night of June 25, 2009, an interview with a television station in which he defended the deal the light of strategic interest in PT (as well as I said regarding the answer to question number 16). 
I played the interview with the CEO of PT as the justification of economic rationality and strategic business point of view of the business interest of PT. 
47. To the question of the Leader of the Parliamentary CDS-PP on June 4, 2009, declared that "The government gives no guidelines nor received any kind of information about businesses that take into account the strategic perspectives" PT. The Government has, before or after this statement, some guidance, or instruction on the actual business of acquiring the share capital of Media Capital by PT? 
I repeat, in full, the statements I made in the Plenary Session of the day June 24, 2009: 
"The Government gives no guidelines, nor received any information about businesses that take into account the strategic perspectives PT". And, indeed, the Government has not, neither before nor after 24 days of the 24th, any "guidance" or "instruction" about the deal. What the government did, on June 26, 2009, was communicated in its capacity as shareholder of PT, its opposition to this transaction. And he did it for the reasons of this case, since it became necessary to remove the suspicions which had been launched, including the parliamentary leader of the CDS-PP's own Plenary Session of June 24, that, influenced by government, purchase of part of Media Capital by PT was designed to change the editorial line of TVI. 
48. Noted the intention of Dr. Granadeiro make an appointment for the week of June 29 to July 3, 2009? What is the matter on the agenda for this meeting? When it was checked and was scheduled for that day? Why not come to accomplish? 
I know the President of the Board of PT, I do not know personally or through its secretariat, will take phoned my office in the week between 21 and 27 June to schedule a meeting for the following week. There was no stated theme for this meeting, which was never scheduled. The meeting did not come to realize why after we met at dinner on June 25th (vd. Answer to question No. 3), and after the meeting held on 26 with the then Minister of Works, Transport and Communications (see answer to question No. 6), the Chairman of the Board of Directors of PT did not come back to express interest in its realization. 
49. Have you ever talked to some charge of PRISA, the Media Capital of TVI or about the information content of TVI, including the National Journal yesterday? If so, when, how responsible, for what purpose and what the content of the conversation? 
Never talked to anyone responsible for Prisa, the Media Capital of TVI or about the information content of TVI, including the National Journal on Friday. 
Left Bloc 
(...) 
51. When, how and by whom noted the informal business of buying TVI Portugal Telecom (BE) and what is intended to give meaning to the statement he gave on June 24 when it said it had no formal knowledge of the business? 
Before the parliamentary debate on the 24th, just read news reports in the media about the possible purchase of the business of TVI but totally unaware of his plea, did not allow an understanding of why a real and effective interest in PT to acquire a stake Prisa in Media Capital. And much less a knowledge in which a Prime Minister can be based to respond to Parliament or make public statements. As I said in answer to question number 5, was on June 24 because after the debate, that I read the statement sent to the CMVM by PT. Therefore, the sense that I wanted to make the statement that had not had any formal or official knowledge is very clear to anyone in good faith: what is meant to emphasize that to date those statements (prior to dinner on 25 June), had not received, and in fact not received any information about the business via the official, formal or any other reliable, whatever it was, he could set up an actual knowledge, including any information that had been given by those responsible Portugal Telecom, to any other actors in the business or the competent Minister. 
52. Ever Dr. Armando Vara and / or Dr. Rui Pedro Soares told him about the deal in progress or on the possible deal between Portugal Telecom and its Taguspark with Prisa / Media Capital / TVI? 
No, I never talked about business, nor on the possible deal, between Portugal Telecom and Prisa or Taguspark / Media Capital / TVI. 
53. Meetings, where there has been with Dr Granadeiro and / or Mr. Zeinal Bava, was it ever commented on the ongoing business between Portugal Telecom and TVI or the possibility of its accomplishment? 
No. I never mentioned, nor with the President of the Board of Directors of PT, not with his CEO, the ongoing business between Portugal Telecom and TVI or the possibility of its completion, unless, of course, on June 25, 2009 at night, as provided above in the answer to number 3. 
54. On 23 and June 24, 2009 the newspapers i and Economic Daily published articles concerning the acquisition by Portugal Telecom for a stake in Media Capital. Was contacted personally or through members of its cabinet, in these newspapers during the preparation of these stories to clarify the government's position on this? Are you aware that some member of his government or its offices have been contacted for this purpose? 
I have not been contacted personally, nor was any contact made accordingly to my Cabinet. Know of that have been made to contact other members of government or their offices. 
(...) 
57. On June 26, 2009, in Parliament, the Prime Minister said: "The Government has decided to speak this morning with the administration of Portugal Telecom, the Ministry has summoned the directors of Portugal Teleca to inform them that we oppose this business can be done. convey this guidance to state representatives in the company "(BE). Enter the name of state representatives, particularly taking into account that the power to approve this business is the Board of Directors. Who are, therefore, the directors of PT that represent the state? (CDS-PP) 
The passage quoted above begins by reporting to the meeting which was convened by the then Minister of Public Works, Transport and Communications with Directors of PT, through its President and he attended also the Chief Executive Officer of EN. It is in this context that I mentioned to journalists that pass the government's position "to state representatives in the company." Not used, so the concept of "state representatives" in the technical legal sense, since, as we know, there is on the Board of PT administrator with that status or condition. However, as I mentioned in response to questions number 1 and 2, the speaker of the shareholder in the company and in particular with the Council and Administration, it is the Chairman of the Board of Directors of PT. It is through dialogue that the Government has with him that the shareholder hopes that their views are taken into account by the Board, subject to the intervention in that place might have also Caixa Geral de Depósitos. So it was in fact refer to the position that the Government had passed at the meeting on the 26th with the President of the Board and the Chief Executive Officer of PT. 
58. Engineer Mario Lino, the statements made in the hearing before the Commission of Inquiry, on April 19, 2010, said he had agreed with the Prime Minister "to call the Board of Directors of PT to say:" I want you to know that the Government does not agree that this deal is done. "When there was such a conversation with the Minister Mario Lino, who participated in it and what are the reasons for the decision? 
The conversation in question took place on the afternoon of June 25 did not participate in it and no one else besides myself and the then Minister of Public Works, Transport and Communications. The grounds of the decision contained in the answer to questions numbers 6:16, to which it refers .(...) 
60. Dr. Granadeiro said at the hearing on 30th April 2010, the Commission of Inquiry, which, on occasion referred to in the previous question, the Prime Minister failed to disclose the government's decision on the deal. Confirms the statement of Dr. Granadeiro? Response or information that you gave? What are the reasons that led him to Dr. clarify not Granadeiro on the stance adopted by the Government on this matter? 
I confirm that on the night of June 25, 2009 not communicated to the Chairman of the Board of PT regarding the government's position, the business in question, nor informed about the steps we would take, because that was not the time nor the site itself, because to do so and competed to the Minister on matters concerning the government's position forward to the Chairman of the Board of PT.

A azul aquelas verbas que aparentemente podem servir para tudo e mais um par de botas. A azul, o saco azul.
O total perfaz 191.405.356,61 euros - cento e noventa e um milhões, blá blá blá. Ou seja, em encargos directos e indirectos, cada deputado custa cerca de sessenta mil euros mensais ao erário público. Por este custo podiam fazer mais e melhor do que andam a fazer, não?

Tributo Solidário???

Ao que percebi o PSD pretende dos ex-trabalhadores que estão a viver "às custas" do subsídio de desemprego a "contribuição" para o esforço da economia com um tal de "tributo solidário". E esse tributo solidário consiste exactamente no quê? No "privilégio" de poder trabalhar durante um determinado número de horas sem remuneração, prestando serviço à comunidade. Incluídos na proposta estavam igualmente os beneficiários do rendimento social de inserção.

Eu tenho para mim duas coisas: a primeira é que o serviço comunitário é voluntário ou imposto por sentença de um Tribunal como substituição à aplicação de pena, nos casos em que isso é possível. A segunda é que, para se qualificar a receber o subsídio de desemprego, é necessário trabalhar durante um x numero de meses e fazer os necessários e correspondentes descontos. Mais. Segundo uma convenção da Organização Internacional do Trabalho ratificada por Portugal em 1956 (nos tempos do Salazarismo veja-se) a imposição da obrigatoriedade de trabalhar a quem esteja a receber subsídio de desemprego é ILEGAL. Para além de amoral, é ilegal. Porque quem vem sugerir uma cagada deste tamanho, seguramente não prescindirá do seu subsídiozito de reintegração na "vida activa" quando abandonar o parlamento.

Voltando à vaca fria, a questão é completamente diferente para os beneficiários do RSI. E acredito que uma parte substancial - que para além de me chular com o RSI ainda me chula com as habitações sociais das quais nem sequer renda pagam - deveria ser obrigada a trabalhar. Mas num sítio em que vissem o sol nascer aos quadradinhos.
Quanto ao PSD e ao deputado Adão e Silva, estais no bom caminho.

Isto é...


Um bom conselho.
Porque pode não ser seguido. Quando fôr o FMI a dizer o mesmo, deixa de ser um bom conselho. Passa a ser mandatório. Tenho para mim que é isso que esta gentinha quer - poder dizer que os sacrifícios nos foram impostos contra vontade deles. 
Eu vou comprar uma caçadeira um destes dias. E será para utilizar, claro...


'Portugal não consegue financiar-se', diz Ulrich

Este gajo começa a irritar-me.



José Sócrates quer que os portugueses compreendam o plano de austeridade aprovado na semana passada, com o acordo do PSD. E foi tentar explicá-lo, em entrevista de uma hora na RTP1. Sem pedir desculpa: "Só se pede desculpas quando se faz o que não se deve"




Foda-se. Ò palhacinho, ninguém quer que peças desculpa pela merda que TENS que fazer agora, porque a UE e o FMI te apertaram os tomates; a malta quer é que peças desculpa por toda a merda que andaste a fazer antes, e que te obriga a fazeres agora a merda que tens que fazer. E que nós todos iremos pagar.

Olha olha olha....


Estes gajos andarão a ler o meu blog?


Claro que não. A idéia original não é minha, mas é boa. E a comprová-lo está a notícia.

E ainda acerca da "Vossa Eminência":

O Papa veio a Portugal. E o que se escreveu e disse acerca do assunto, senhores... dava para uma nova Bíblia.
Começo por todos aqueles que concordam que o Santo Padre é efectivamente uma figura ímpar que merece tratamento destacado e defenderam com unhas e dentes todo e qualquer tratamento deferencial que lhe foi dado. Muito bem. Foram ao Terreiro do Paço? A Fátima? Aos Aliados? Ah "poisé". A grande maioria ficou em frente ao PC a botar faladura contra os que estavam contra. Como os tomates: participam mas não entram. Um bocado como a treta de ser Católico não-praticante: Um Católico ou é praticante ou não é Católico, ponto final.
Todos os que criticaram veementemente o tratamento de excepção que foi concedido ao Homem: a minha questão é, foi-lhe concedida a pompa e circunstância por ser um Chefe de Estado ou por ser o líder de uma congregação religiosa (por sinal a que tem maior expressão no nosso País)? Qual dos dois? E pergunto eu, para além da faladura que botaram na blogosfera e em artigos à sorte pelo mundo virtual, o que mais fizeram? Nada?
E eu fico com as minhas perguntas: A "culpa" é do Papa ou do Estado Português? Do tal Estado laico, por acaso governado por um partido que se diz "Socialista, Republicano e Laico"? Bem, votaram neles, amanhem-se que eu ando há tanto tempo a pagar pelas escolhas alheias que já me habituei à mediocridade. Por outro lado, o facto de o Papa congregar à sua volta  centenas de milhar de pessoas também não me amacia a alma, o Benfica fez o mesmo este ano (e o Porto durante anos a fio) e nada disso garante (NEM PODE GARANTIR) honras de excepção ao Jorge Nuno ou ao Luís Filipe. Mas nem pensar nisso é bom. Só faltaria.
Resta-me acreditar que nem tudo o que parece, é. Porque se olharmos para o Vaticano como o digníssimo sucessor da Roma Imperial e se ponderarmos a ICAR como a sucessora do Império, a coisa começa a fazer algum sentido, principalmente à luz dos factos que estiveram na génese da ICAR e do Catolicismo enquanto movimento religioso. Religioso mas assumida e fundamentalmente político. E no que toca ao plano político, capaz de dar cartas a qualquer um dos maleáveis, oportunistas e sempre prontos à vassalagem chefes de estado da actualidade. Os mesmíssimos que receberam envergonhadamente o Dalai Lama nos fundos do Museu Nacional de Arte antiga. Afinal trata-se também de um chefe de um Estado (ocupado pela China) e líder religioso. Qual a diferença para o Papa?


Interesse. Interesses. Política. Aquelas merdas que decantam do que um homem faz aquilo que ele é, muito para além daquilo que ele pretende ser. É o revelador de uma fotografia que nunca fica bem, mas fica sempre para a História. E o problema aqui não é o Papa. O problema são todos aqueles que nós elegemos. Os que mandam arrancar os crucifixos das salas de aula, porque somos um Estado Laico, e de seguida vão ao beija-mão ao Papa. Mas percebem tanto dos assuntos do protocolo que tratam o homem por "Eminência". O problema são as mediocridades que apenas sobressaem no meio de imbecis, e que pretendem converter todos os outros ao básico da acefalia acrítica. Por actos e por omissões - e isto é o mais próximo que conseguirão estar da práxis Cristã (eu disse Cristã e não Católica).


E note-se aqui que nada disto que eu disse tem a ver com religião, nem com seguir os princípios de um homem que foi - e ainda hoje seria - excepcional. Mas nada daquilo que foi dito e feito tem a ver com religião, pois não?


P.S: Falei do Primeiro-ministro, mas o nosso Presidente também ficou muito catita a babar enquanto falava dos netinhos e de Sua Santidade. Pena que eu esteja mais preocupado com os meu um-por-cento que vai deixar de ser meu à conta do aumento do IVA do que com a fraldinha da prole dos filhos de Vossa Excelência. E por uma razão simples: por uma razão ou outra, posso assacar culpas desse um por cento a cada um dos que estiveram ali no beija-mão como se não fosse nada com eles. Ao menos pagassem a puta da bula dos próprios bolsos.

Agora que o Papa foi andando...

Naqueles dias, andava Jesus pela Galileia. Tendo passado por uma multidão enraivecida, reparou que apedrejavam uma mulher (Maria Madalena). Acercou-se da turba e disse-lhes "Parai, parai, o que fazeis é injusto e indigno!" - e eles pararam. Logo lhes disse "Aquele que nunca errou, atire a primeira pedra", ao que um português, agarrando numa pedra do chão, fulminou a mulher com uma calhoada no meio da testa. Jesus olhou para ele e perguntou indignado "Homem, nunca erraste?" ao que o tuga respondeu "A esta distância, não".

I know you'll be a sun 
In somebody else's sky, but why
Why, why can't it be, 
Why can't it be mine?"


Ouvi (estava a ouvir) esta música quando entrei pela primeira vez na casa onde a minha Avó tinha vivido. A primeira que perdi. Tinha coisas interessantes, coisas de quem não sabe ler uma letra do tamanho de um combóio mas tira a pinta a quem lhe chega perto logo ao primeiro olhar. A casa já não existe.
O primeiro CD de onde ouvi. Ten, amarelo, versão amarela com capa de cartão.

Neofrugalismo

Ouvi ontem este palavrão na tv e nem quis acreditar: a descrição engloba tudo aquilo que os meus paizinhos me ensinaram em pequenino. A não gastar mais do que se tem nem a gastar em coisas não indispensáveis. A pensar antes de gastar, a ponderar e a comparar. Resumindo, a não dar o que me faz falta ao desbarato a troco do que não necessito. Das duas uma: ou eles (e quase toda a geração deles) estavam muito avançados para a época, ou anda por aí algum palhacinho com excesso de falta de trabalho a inventar palavras novas a ver se fica para a história.

Qum não tem cú não se arme em paneleiro.

Local: Biblioteca da Assembleia da República.


Interveniente: Ricardo Rodrigues, deputado do Partido Socialista e coordenador para a Área da Justiça.
Acção: Gamanço de dois gravadores.
Móbil: Pressão psicológica insuportável (ahahahahahahahahahah!!!!!!).







É que na realidade nem queria falar disto... Mas... Este gajo é pago com os meus impostos para fazer merdas destas dentro das instalações da Assembleia da República - sede do Parlamento, que me representa a mim e a mais dez milhões de palhaços pagantes de impostos - e não lhe acontece nada???????

Alguém se lembra?

Se calhar não. Mas a extrema-direita alemã, na década de trinta do século passado, teve a sua génese na extrema-esquerda e nos anarquistas. Os mesmos que Henrique Monteiro acusa. 
Se o são ou não... não sei. Mas lembrei-me.

Cientistas...


Depois de um dia de conferências, muitos colegas doutores encontram-se
no Bar do hotel. E ai contam as suas últimas conquistas científicas.


O Australiano começa:


- Tivemos um fulano que foi atropelado e a única coisa intacta que
tínhamos era o seu dedo mindinho. Pois, a nossa equipa conseguiu, pelo
ADN,
refazer a mão, um novo braço, um novo corpo! O paciente ficou tão
capacitado que ao ter alta, tirou o emprego de cinco pessoas!


 - Isso não é nada! - Diz o Americano.


 - Nós tivemos o caso de um operário que caiu no reactor atómico de
uma central nuclear! A única coisa que sobrou dele foi um cabelo. Pois
pelo ADN dele conseguimos reconstituir completamente todo o seu corpo.
Depois de ter alta, esse paciente mostrou-se tão eficiente que
cinquenta pessoas perderam o emprego!


 O Português pede a palavra:


- O caso que vou contar é muito mais interessante: Um dia em que eu
estava a andar pelo hospital senti o cheiro de um peido...
Imediatamente, capturei-o num saco que levei até ao laboratório.
Chamei a minha equipe e começámos a trabalhar. Primeiro, a partir do
peido, fizemos um ânus, em seguida reconstituímos o intestino, e
depois, pouco a pouco, todo o corpo e por fim o cérebro. O projecto
desta criatura foi chamado José Sócrates e está a ter um desempenho
tão fantástico que milhares de pessoas vão perder o emprego!!!



Não é nova mas... 
Chegada pela via do costume.

Alegremente...

"Um Presidente da República tem que ser mais do que um espectador atento".
Manuel Alegre Dixit.
É desta que o José vai ficar com o cú tão apertado que nem uma agulha lhe conseguem lá enfiar. Vai acordar com a azia de ter que defender o Manelito e vai chegar ao fim do dia a anti-depressivos e sais de frutos.

Lamentamos, lamentamos... E que se note: gosto tanto do Manelito como de cagar um pé todo. Aliás, gosto tanto de quase todos eles como de cagar um pé todo.

Inês...

Depois de andar às voltas com as viagens a Paris e com quem as iria pagar, depois de dizer que não pagaria um tostão dessas mesmas viagens, e depois de rios de tinta gastos a opinar sobre o assunto, Inês de Medeiros prescinde de uma condição de favor "irrepetível" que lhe foi concedida a título excepcional. Creio que seria agora que se ouviriam as palmas que... 
Não. Não há palhaços, não há circo.
Começou por exigir aquilo a que não tinha direito, armou em vítima, e agra vem, altruísticamente, prescindir do que obteve indevidamente... Haja pachorra. E que tal ter os tomates no sítio e ir pedir contas a quem lhe prometeu aquilo que não lhe podia dar em vez de armar o teatro da virgem da agonia?


Haja pachorra. Tamanho encéfalo fica bem ao lado da Rita Rato.

Há que reconhecê-lo:
