Influence




"Time" magazine made a list of 100 most influencial personalities from 2010, and guess who was there in the first place of the leaders? that's right, our president direct from Brazil: Luiz InĂ¡cio Lula da Silva...


Come on... couldn't they have chosen another person? I'm sure there's at least one person more influencial than Lula, like...I don't know, James Cameron maybe. Lula sayd that Brazil is becoming a first world country, ahahahahah, well, at least James' fictional world is better, more colorful and alive.


I think people should interpretate this list only as a political and social Oscar cerimony: sometimes the winner doesn't deserve it for their talent, they only get it because they are the talk of the town.

Influencial people of 2010

I saw the list of the most influencial people in 2010 and I couldn't believe that Lula was considerated the most important leader. How this can be possible? We can't say that he never did things for Brazil, but he's not the guy that people from other countries think he is. Another thing that I didn't undertstand is the fact that Ben Stiller is considered a hero. I think it's amazing the fact that he cares about the schools for Haitian children, but he's not a hero because of this, he's just a guy with a good heart and money to do it.
When I saw that Lady Gaga was the most influencial artist, I totally agreed, because she does everything she wants, and doesn't care about what people say of her. And this is why she's on the top of the list.
Of course there are other influencial people that I don't think should be on the list, but there's nothing to say about it. It's what most people think...
I just hope that next year they choose the famous people that deserve to be on the list better.

Lula is one of the most influencial person of 2010



Unfortunately, during my english class, I was looking at http://www.time.com/ and I found something interesting. An article of the most influencial people of 2010, and there was LULA. A lot of good commentaries about him and his government. I know that the people from outside don't know what is happening here and I gotta say that most of the complaments aren't true. "He tries to propel Brazil into the first world with....Fome zero". hauhuahuahuha, Brazil? In the First world? Good joke! If that was the intention he failed, because all I see is a lot of civilians dying everyday with hunger. And if he was really interested in solving this problem (that I think is very important to discuss) he should have given progress to it. More over, they don't see (or see) that this action can be used as a politic strategy of earning voters. With all these "helps", the excellency president no finger now has the support of the whole region of northeast. I can't ignore the fact that he's getting popular but, we have to be careful on what we're reading. Don't accept everything they say, have a critical reasoning. I don't believe in politicians anymore, so what I do is voting null. If you already have a person to vote...I'm not saying that you shouldn't do it but, with all the facts that I've been following...nothing will change...my opinion.
