23 July 2011. Politics Through a Cartoonist’s Eyes…

Last year, the Five Percenters gave themselves a 29 percent pay raise… and laid off workers! Many American businesses had a VERY profitable year. If you vote for the New GOP… THIS is what you vote for. Your job may be next… after all, the Five Percenters HAVE to pay their wetback illegal immigrant nannies and gardeners…

******

THIS is where the money for the tax cuts to the Five Perecenters is coming from… any questions?

******

When Rupert falls, what’ll be the effect on the rightwing media? No one yet knows… but it won’t be without effect, that’s for certain. He’ll drag down others in his undertow…

******

Remember Sarah? However… as Chukcha the Wise would say… her fans are devoted to her; her inane remarks and prima dona behaviour doesn’t faze them. She could still win the GOP nomination on the votes of the slobbering Bubbas of this world (they’re the New GOP base, I’m afraid)… that’s possible… so, don’t drop your guard. Vote “NO” next November to the Five Percenter agenda…

******

Most of the Western media falls into those categories, not only the rightwing part of it. There’s no reporting on the two million families tossed out on the street through foreclosure, nor is there reporting on how the Five Percenters are living it up at our expense. The New GOP and the Internationalist Democrats are equally evil… Bernie Sanders for President… now, that’s a candidate I could vote for with gusto!

On Saturday, 23 July, during a visit to Starocherkassk, former Bulgarian football great Khristo Stoichkov (1966- ) (on the right) took the Cossack oath.

******

During his visit to the Don, Stoichkov met with members of the Rostov Oblast administration, they discussed the development of youth football in the region.

******

In addition, Stoichkov visited the “Rostov” Institute, where he talked with students at the school club. He also visited one of Rostov’s children’s’ homes. In the image above, Stoichkov dances with the soloists of a Cossack ensemble after his initiation.

******

Stoichkov, who’s legendary in world football circles (he’s known as “The Dagger”, and his on-pitch ferocity is famous), will stay in the southern capital until 24 July, and he’ll return to Bulgaria after the FC Rostov-FC Dinamo match on Sunday.
