    You are so negative and most of your posts are a bunch of exagerated, ludicrous stories. Please leave, you are not enlightening anyone here. Just scaring people unnecessarily away from a great place. Please go sail off into the sunset.

    you have the right to your on opinion . i have written proff on most every thing i post , police reports and written letters from the people it has happend to . and as far scaring pople off , it would only scare off the faint at hart . and then the subject of sailing off , 1 the roamdeep was a 80ft power boat no sails , 2, i cant as the navy of brasil still has it tied to the dock and we are still in court over that and will be for quite some time . 3 you dont have to read what i post just like the Bars you go to if you dont like it dont come back . 4 I like brasil very much , have been to most every states with my wife , motored up the amazon till it was to shalow for the roamdeep to go farther . and you have a good day

    Give roamdeep a break. The point of this is site is to have posts where people can get help, meet people and know things. He seems to be trying to do just that……save the insults for other forums please.

    thanks donald am here to help if i can . here is one that my wife points out to me . how a lot of gringoes think that brasilian are talking monkeys and dont speak very well of the people or there country . And right she is some gringoes come down here to consult on business and just insult the very people that have invited them down to work , others just come down to see what it is like after seeing things like {mike in brasil .com } and want to give it a try . look at it this way we are at best guest in their country , they move at the speed of brasil no faster and nothing you can do can change that , they will at some point come up to speed but not to pleas you it will be for them . so just relax showing your ass to them will only get you in trouble and you will get nothing done , if you cant say anything good than dont say anything at all . roamdeep

Just scaring people unnecessarily away from a great place. Please go sail off into the sunset.[/QUOTE] Litespeed or Lightspeed? Or are you the same wanker who is flogging casinos here using two names almost the same?First off, I personally know Roamdeep and am also here in Brazil. I have seen the documentation of the theft of his vessel and plan to publish the story as far and as wide as I can. Don’t scare people off? Who like Peter Blake? Know him? No? He’s dead – one of the world’s most famous yachtmen was killed whilst sailing in Brazil, much to the international embarassment of the government of this country. If port officials in this country continue to act with impunity in their seizing of vessels – violating international maritime law – you can bet I will ensure I will get the word out that Brazil IS a dangerous place to take your boat. And if the leverage of having articles published by a former staff member of an international yachting publication will help roamdeep in his quest to get some justice, you can sure they will be published.And yes… yachtsmen may be scared off – and justly so.

    Still crying about Peter Blake? You sailors must GET OVER IT! John Lennon was Brittish and he died in US: Should we bad-mouth the USA now, saying that it is unsafe for Brittons? If Brazil is so bad, go sail in your home countries. If you are in Brazil, put up with the system and stop complaining…!

    I didn’t sail here first off. Second, writing about the wrongs in the system may help force Brazil to stamp out corruption and crime when it comes to visiting yachtsmen. Third, I don’t hate Brazil thanks… I rather like my life here. Covering up sh*t with a sheet doesn’t get rid of the stink. If a man visiting this country was robbed of his worldly goods don’t you think others should be warned? Or are you of the Screw Em’school of ignorance?I am not clearlynot blaming all of Brazil for the acts of a few high placed thieves. But you apparently can’t see read. Letters to the Editor of all major sailing and boating magazines worldwide have been sent as well as articles and photos. Once printed they will be copied and sent to the appropriate authorities to help Roamdeep in his quest for justice. Don’t like that? Too late. Peter Blake was an example – and a good one at that… of the power of the international media which eventually forced former Brazilian President Fernando Henrique Cardoso to order an all-out effort to find the his killers. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/1695932.stmUsing your logic, it would be better to ignore rather than confront problems. I’m not going anywhere by the way.

    roamdeep here as i said before IF YOU DONT LIKE WHAT I SAY DONT READ . 2 people out of a mass , the needs of the manny out way the needs of the few . I did not say the USA was a safe place , in fact poeple should stay away so you cannot be killed by some terrorist after one of us . also the man who shot jon lennon will most likley spend the rest of his life in a mential hospital , while the man that killed blake will be out before he is 45 years old .and it took the gov of brasil to offer a large sum of money to whom ever would give info on the death . and by chance the woman next door to the man that had his finger shot off by blake before his rifle jamed turned him and his friends in to the police for the money . THERE DEFENCE AT THE TRIAL WAS (WE WERE DEFINDING OURSELVES ) lula evean gave a speach a few mounths back telling briasilians not to go to the USA and for any one there to come home , and he wished that amercians would not come to brasil . point of order . Texas has sent back to brasil some 27,000 people from brasil trying to enter the USA through Mexico in the past 5 years . you have a nice life roamdeep AND YOU HAVE A NICE DAY

    “vc ja leu os dez mandamento de deus ?? nao jugue pra nao ser jugado” Desculpa, mas esse nao e um dos dez mandamentos. Que exemplo esta dando voce: Acusando outros de nao ir a igreja, e nao sabe nem os 10 mandamentos… Triste. Outro mau exemplo e sua atitude ruim, falando mau dos pais brasileiros. Com tanto negativismo, eu recomendo que voce va a igreja e procure encontrar a paz que voce tanto precisa. Nao ira se arrepender. Quanto ao palavrao, ele foi escrito por Sassafras, e nao voce. Mais um erro seu. Fruto de sua atitude ruim e ignorancia. Espero que siga meu conselho. Voce precisa de bastante comforto e paz e te desejo bem. Brazilian Cheers.

    How can one read this and not jump in the fray?? I suppose that someone should read the title of this Forum: “Ventyour frustrations” prior to making taking pitiful, nitpicky potshots atfellow posters. I agree with the fact that you don’t have to read something if youdisagree with it. I am sure there are tons of other forums wherepeople will all agree with you – probably not very interesting readingthough. Give ’em hell roamdeep! It sure makes interesting reading.

What can I say… And you love us so much that you are in Brazil, enjoying everything that is good and great about our people and culture. You must be missing America, though. All that fast food, shows like “Who wants to marry a milionaire” which, by the way, draws record ratings, the right to kill (by abortion or death penalty), the hundreds of election recounts, OJ Simpson playing golf, prayers not allowed in school, killing thousands of innocents in a pointless war… Oh, what a great future! Here is a hint: to check how the world sees a country, just observe how their leaders are received: Lula goes anywhere in the planet and here’s adored, ovationed and admired. Bush/Powell/Cheney can only go to the UK without getting hit by eggs and tomatoes. Poor Powell couldn’t even visit Greece for the end of the olypics… People were on the streets protesting! Hopefully you can pass for a Brazilian to avoid the embarassement…! And the world does laugh…!

  • #30794

    I’m glad, Roamdeep. I am glad you fly our flag high. So do I. And whether you admit it or not, Brazil is LOVED all over the world. Period. It’s a fact! No hatred against Brazil, no burning of Brazilian flags anywhere on the planet, no terrorist attacks in Brazil. Can you say the same about EUA? This may surprise you, but Brazil is in a piece keeping effort in Haiti. They need it, probably as much as our favelas. I am just glad we are not in a foreign country, invading their sovereigncy and destroying everything in sight like SOME country is doing. Piggybacking on your thought, how about sending a few hundreds of thousands of American soldiers somewhere else, where they can promote piece, rather than hate?! Heck, we may need them back home. protecting American school kids going to school in fear everyday. You say that people die in Brazil, you should try living in Washington DC or Detroit. If you read a little, you’ll discover that homicides rates in those cities (per 100K habitants) are comparable to SP and Rio’s. I love both countries and the above are simply FACTS. You can do it to. Stop whining about Peter Blake or whoever and read a newspaper once ina while. Cheers, F.

    finance, finance, finance… Come on, your point in all of this is???? Brazil is great and therest is not? Lula is loved everywhere??? How about wesimply look in our own backyard and examine what this latest vote inSao Paulo actually conveyed. The outcome of such an introspectionactually shows that the policies of the government are not being allthat well received… The peace efforts in Haiti? Well-meaning but hardly somethingthat I would consider worthwhile bearing in mind the horrible problemsthat our fellow citizens endure on a daily basis trying to survive fromone day to the next right here in Sao Paulo. How about focusinginternally instead of externally? This is the same thing that ishappening to the US by being in Iraq, the problems on the home front donot get resolved.

    Aranco: Not sure how old you are, or where you came from in the conversation, but WELCOME! Now the teaching part: The Iraq war has cost in excess of U$200 BI. The cost of Brazil’s efforts in Haiti is insignificant, considering thousands of militarys in Brazil get paid anyway for doing nothing, but staying away from their families, unable to get a real job to help support them. We all understand that Brazil has many issues that need to be dealt with, but it doesn’t mean we should turn our back to the world and the less fortunate. The help is little, but is more of a token signifying Brazil’s commitment to the UN and world piece. I know you don’t understand, but believe me, it makes sense and it’s important. About SP, LULA what…? Marta simply wasn’t a good mayor, so we didn’t re-elect her. It’s called smart voting. You should try it, it’s legal. Also, you simply need to understand that it takes YEARS to turn a country around, and basically one bad term to destroy everything. Not sure if you were born then, but we just had 8 years of bad policies and a president that was impeached for embezlement, not too long before that. I think LULA is doing pretty good… I hope you didn’t mean to compare Brazil/Haiti with USA/Iraq. The difference is only a few hundreds of thousands of deaths… Let me know if you need anything else, son. You are always welcome!

    [/QUOTE] What does this have to do with “Stop Posting Roamdeep”?Your pedantic verbiage concerning Peter Blake and yachtsmen “whining” show how obtuse you are and indicates a rather shallow argument on your part Finance. What is at issue here, is Roamdeep’s right to post on a public forum in a section put into place to “Vent Your Frustations”… only to be met with lame dogma on your part.Federal Authorities in complicity with the Brazilian Navy stole the man’s boat and everything in it. That is called piracy and not only are international organisations involved in this case – there are parties in Brazil who are working to right the wrong. This case will likely put Brazil in the same league as Indonesia and Somalia on the Lloyd’s of London’s watch list and one that puts this country in the gutter of the International Maritime Community.Proud? Who cares about boaters right? That kind of attitude only crushes the development of this nation on it’s quest to the be a player on the world stage and enter the First World.As for the American enigma – it’s pretty simple. Central Asia contains the greatest reserves of clean, pure crude oil on the planet and the race is on – China needs plenty to fuel its exploding economy… not to mention India. The military industrial complex in the USA needs war to sell it’s weapons and what we are witnessing is pure and clean robbing of the US treasury by Bush and his clan. Oil and guns – as usual.Mussolini’s description of what facism is – sums it up as; “The merger of corporate and government power.” And that’s what it’s all about.As for this Dutch/Canadian’s opinion of Brazil, I hope they follow the path to Social Democracy and more balance within the society. The rich get richer and the young get stronger. Sas.

    “Man, we simply need more like you to continue showing us “young pups” how it should be done” hehehe…! What a horrible country you live in. huh? you don’t agree with us helping out Haiti, the country is a mess, Lula’s policies are not working… Lot’s of substance behind those views… I have had great discussions with knowledgeable folks in this board, but I regret to say you are not one of them. In any event, I am glad you are sticking around to learn. Now, promise me you’ll wise up a little What a great attitude! Instead of using your great baby knowledge to help building a better country, you criticise those who tried and sit still, complaining about (like you say) “the state the country is in”. Good going! easier to blame it on the previous generation than make a try… Luckily, I know many US immigrants in Brazil that hold opposite views. Many are hard working volunteers that try to make a difference everyday, helping this beaultiful, yet struggling country as their own. And then there are people like, well, you know…YOU. Here is a secret, my young friend: I have been living out of the country for 13 years, while you have been there for a while. If the country has worsened, looks like YOU are the one doing a GREAT JOB! TOUCHE! Joke is on you, kid…AGAIN…!

    I am new here although have lived in Brasil for around five years and I am English married to a Brasilian lady. I think to riddicule someone for giving advice is not very constructive, after all with any advice given it is up to the individual to sift through what he hears or reads and make up his own mind on how he himself will use it.I myself have been held up at gunpoint at The traffic lights on Ave Brasil, my wife has been robbed at knife point several times and I had my laptop stolen whilst using the telephone to change money at the cambio at garulhos airport and passing my passport and things was too busy and niave. I myself am well travelled and admit these things happen. as to a comparison of John Lennon (anyone who says that the only difference between the beatles and Jesus Christ is that the beatles have more fans) reason given by gunman why he shot him. sounds a bit like your post, dont like people making statements that you disagree with.I hope this post is read without bios and if offending any beatles fans Peace man
