A VOLTA DO “BEM AMADO”

 

Oo bem amado retorno do personagem Odorico Paraguaçu, o bem amado, não poderia ser mais oportuno. Lembram-se dele? O prefeito de Sucupira que queria construir um cemitério na cidade? Pois é. Reapareceu recentemente nos cinemas. Mesmo roteiro: concluiu a obra, inaugurou a necrópole. O problema veio depois, ao constatar que em Sucupira ninguém morria. Pobre Odorico! Viu-se obrigado a importar um candidato a cadáver. Só que os ares salutares da cidade acabaram curando o moribundo. Restou apelar: convocou um pistoleiro profissional. Deu-lhe a chave da cidade. Quem sabe aquele homem rude não mataria alguém? Mas o povo cordial acabou amolecendo o coração do Zeca Diabo. Sucupira acabou mesmo é com um cemitério sem defunto.

Andar pelas ruas de São Paulo, ultimamente, tem-me feito lembrar de Sucupira. A pedra no sapato de Hadadd, porém, são as ciclovias sem ciclistas. Isso mesmo. O Odorico Paraguaçu existe! Mas por que cargas d’água não há gente pedalando? Diz o petista que é devido à dificuldade dos brasileiros em abandonar a “cultura” do carro”. Eu só faço rir. É a piada do ano. Mas petista é assim: sempre aponta um culpado, desde que não seja ele nem a sua grei.

Convenhamos, Sr. Maldade: políticos no Brasil não pensam no Brasil. Pensam em votos. Por isso sempre colocam a carroça à frente dos burros. A chamada política “easy way” é a nossa cara.
Há tempos agimos assim. O país mecanizou e incrementou a agricultura, mas antes não se urbanizou adequadamente, de modo a absorver o êxodo rural. Hoje temos favelas. Depois industrializou-se sem antes se educar. Resultado: baixa produtividade e desemprego. Em seguida modernizou os parques industriais, informatizou-se, mas não especializou sua mão de obra. Hoje temos baixos salários e produtos caros, além de um setor terciario inflado. Todo mundo nas cidades. Planejamento urbano zero. Já viram, né?

Tem mais: optamos por distribuir riqueza sem antes criá-la. Transfere-se o que não se tem. O que não se tem, toma-se emprestado. O que se toma emprestado, tem-se que pagar mais tarde. Uma hora chega a conta!

Para completar, caracteriza-nos a “cultura do estado”. Espera-se tudo dele. Inflamos suas repartições, multiplicamos a quantidade e os valores dos holerites. É gente que não acaba mais no setor público. E ganhando bem! Em compensação, sobretaxamos o empreendedor. Torna-se cada vez mais difícil abrir negócios. É muito imposto para bancar um paquiderme de tais proporções.

Por isso a produção é pífia, puxando a arrecadação lá para baixo. De onde tirar dinheiro para ampliar a malha metroviária, investir em ônibus melhores, monotrilhos, trens? Só recorrendo aos bancos. Quando a fatura vier, sobram duas alternativas: imprimir dinheiro, gerando inflação ou aumentar juros e cobrar mais impostos. O governo tem optado pela segunda. Percebem o círculo vicioso?
Pois é bem esta a explicação para a ausência de ciclistas: a necessidade do carro (e não a “cultura” do carro como alega o prefeito). Abrir mão do automóvel em São Paulo significa tomar ônibus lotado e metrô que nem sempre chega aonde se precisa. Deslocar-se da Vila Maria ao Jabaquara de bicicleta fica difícil. Seria preciso de um sistema integrado como o de Amsterdam. Tem?

Mas falar em ciclofaixa virou ‘cult’. Soa bem. Parece inteligente. Uh-la-la! Pédalant à Paris’!
Choperias e bistrôs enchem-se de gente falando bonitinho. A mídia exalta. As universidades enaltecem. As câmaras votam a favor, entoando discursos inflamados. Essa gente, no entanto, acaba indo pedalar é em Champs Elyséés. Ninguém é doido de se arriscar nessas ruas, podendo ser esfaqueado por motivos fúteis, não é mesmo?

Mas a elite mídia-universidade-setor público-meio político dá rodopios de júbilo com medidas desse tipo, numa desconexão com a realidade que orça os limites suportáveis da hipocrisia. Trata-nos como se vivêssemos na Europa. Enquanto isso o povo segue trabalhando para sustentá-la, sofrendo em congestionamentos, parado em semáforos dando bandeira a assaltantes e agora (pior impossível!) esmagado entre ciclovia e faixa de ônibus urbano. No Brasil é assim: intelectuais debatem, Odoricos ficam ricos, Sucupira pira. No final, todos vão arejar em Paris. O povo fica.

  1. Το Valgomed μπορεί να φορεθεί με οποιοδήποτε είδος παπουτσιού, και είναι εντελώς δυσδιάκριτο.
    Το στερεωτικό Valgomed προορίζεται για καθημερινή χρήση με όλους τους τύπους υποδημάτων. Λόγω του σχήματός του προσκολλάται στενά στο πόδι και είναι εντελώς δυσδιάκριτο. Η ελαστικότητα του Valgomed απομακρύνει πλήρως τον κίνδυνο βλάβης από τα δάχτυλα των ποδιών σας. Μπορείτε να περιποιηθείτε τον “κάλο” σας χωρίς καμία προσπάθεια, σχεδόν “με τα πόδια”!
    Γεωργία , 35 χρ., Θεσσαλονίκη
    Πριν από 10 χρόνια είχα κάλο, και τον αφαίρεσα χειρουργικά. Όλα ήταν μια χαρά στην αρχή, αλλά μετά από λίγο άρχισε και πάλι. Πόνος στις αρθρώσεις, ο κάλος αυξήθηκε και πάλι, και μπορούσα μετά βίας να περπατήσω. Προσπάθησα να ψάξω στο Διαδίκτυο, αλλά εκεί είναι γεμάτο από μαϊμού πράγματα: για παράδειγμα, βρήκα θεραπείες με ” αυγά και αλάτι». Δεν ήθελα άλλη εγχείρηση. Ε λοιπόν αφού βρήκα το Valgomed, τώρα δεν υπάρχει καμία ανάγκη για επέμβαση.

    Μαρία, 48 χρ., Ηράκλειο
    Είμαι μόλις 1.5 μέτρο, αλλά έχω πλατυποδία. Δεν έχω καμία επιλογή: φοράω μόνο ψηλοτάκουνα. Έβγαλα κάλους που συνεχώς πονούσαν, και όταν φορούσα τα σανδάλια πόδια μου έδειχναν χάλια. Τίποτα δεν βοήθησε, ουτε η φυσιοθεραπεία, ούτε άλλες θεραπείες. Δοκίμασα το Valgomed και σε λίγες εβδομάδες όλα εξαφανίστηκαν!

    Βαρβάρα, 45 χρ., Θεσσαλονίκη
    Το χειρότερο πράγμα με τους κάλους είναι ότι δεν μπορείς καν να βάλεις παπούτσια. Τα πάντα πονάνε όταν τα φοράς, τόσο που άρχισα να κουτσαίνω. Και το καλοκαίρι; Δεν μπορούσα να περπατήσω στον δρόμο. Μέχρι που βρήκα ένα άρθρο σε ένα ιατρικό site και αποφάσισα να το δοκιμάσω. Παρήγγειλα το Valgomed και τα αρχικά αποτελέσματα είναι εντυπωσιακά: όχι άλλος πόνος. Ελπίζω αυτό να κρατήσει και να βοηθήσει ακόμα περισσότερο
