I am not hearing much about this here in England which is strange as Brazil host the World Cup next year, and if there was any sign of trouble the sports press usually make a big deal out of it. It was the same thing when the World Cup was in South Africa last time, there was always a question if it was safe enough for thousands of people to travel over there.

well you did hear about that huge part of the top of a stadium that fell off I hope - it was made of cement, so it gets kinda dangerous.

about the world cup, there will be so many rapes, robberies, fights and probably people getting shot and killed that it wont even be funny... you'll see.

Its completely crazy if not stupid to host a world cup in brazil. At least you'll always have the brazilian chicks and they're free of charge. But I dont think they'll compensate the whole deal.

When will we realize that united we are invincible? United we conquer all! One universal voice - Americans, Europeans, South Americans, down to the French Polynesia. WE put the congressmen up in those offices. They work for US! The lobbyist work for US! The oil tycoons work for us!

For without us there is no government. Without us there is no supply and demand. Without us there is no commerce.

People of the world - of all races, nationalities, sexual orientation - start looking at each other and for once, see the similarities! See the injustices that have been placed upon us all. We all yearn for the same things! Peace, equality and unity! Fairness, love and justice!

Stand up. Stand up, march and never look back.

Exactly right. Here in the US we love to complain but don't want to get up from the recliner and miss Honey Boo Boo.

Well, when we have a large number of the world's hooligans all in one place - why can't they be turned on? We need insiders to grow a conscience. These people - I use the term loosely - don't clean their own toilets.


Exactly. They're all hooligans. Kinda like the Middle East.....or Europe.
They are animals. (no offense to the animals)

Such ignorance. Hooligans hah, perhaps they are angered about the rising bus fares because they use the buses to go to work-you know take care of themselves. As Americans and elsewhere we know how much a pain it is when gas prices are really high and how much it costs to drive miles to work-at times half their paycheck went for gas.

Americans will sure sit back....whine and moan, about their precious TV shows, family/friends on Facebook, people in fast food places licking the food(oh, what a shocker!)...
Don't get me started on neighborhood busy bodies and Craiglist rant ads- that are atrocious.

For shame...

Try living in a 3rd world country and you'll know!

To wake up the poor in America it would take the U.S. running out of money to pay for welfare assistance.

To wake up the middle class, it would take sky rocketing food and gas prices, loss jobs, and a run on the banks.

The people in the U.S. will only get angry when it affects their pocket books, when it's too expensive to drive their car, and their standard of living takes a nose dive. As long as they can jiggle change in their pockets, eat and drive, they're content.

Apparently they are protesting against poor public services
and the expense of staging the 2014 World Cup
