Tragedy in the news? Kids getting shot, hospitals being bombed, rights being trampled? What’s a person to do? Send thoughts and prayers, that’s what! And with the Thoughts & Prayers app, posting those electronic simulations of concern across all social media platforms is just a tap away!
When Donald Trump meets with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto today, one topic of discussion is sure to be the orange man’s proposed wall on the US-Mexico border.
There will never be a pinche border wall.
“Donald Trump is not a builder,” according to an actual engineer who studied this BS idea.
“Donald Trump could not build a doghouse. Donald Trump is a developer who pays what he would call ‘very, very smart people’ to build things on his behalf,” he notes.
“…The challenge of Trump’s border wall is not technical, but logistical. The leap in complexity between ‘building a wall’ and ‘building a 2,000-mile-long continuous border wall in the desert’ is about equal to the gap between ‘killing a guy’ and ‘waging a protracted land war’…. human beings have built a 2,000-mile-long frontier wall exactly one time. Once. And it was accomplished only through a centuries-long building campaign that necessitated the forced labor of millions of Chinese peasants.”
The engineer goes by Ali F. Rhuzkan — it’s a pen name. Sounds foreign, doesn’t it?
Ali F. even drew up some plans:
Sepia photos of parents, earnest advisers, nice lighting and more. What’s not to like? Vote for me, the generic candidate for president!

By investigating language on a meta-level, Cahuenga-Alvarado tries to grasp language.
Transformed into art, language becomes an ornament. At that moment, lots of ambiguities and indistinctnesses, which are inherent to the phenomenon, come to the surface. Ooooh, shiny!
Her mixed media artworks are an investigation into representations of (seemingly) concrete ages and situations as well as depictions and ideas of the Latin@ that can only be realized in mixed media art.
When the bullshit on Facebook becomes too much, a picture is worth 1000 words. Next time someone posts the worthless “Facebook Privacy Notice,” or warns about the bull semen in energy drinks or that Obama’s power-mad bureaucrats have outlawed sprinkles on ice cream cones, post this meme/image based on a painting by Norman Rockwell. Or look this shit up on Snopes.com. Or both.
Also, when you see this notice at the bottom of EVERY SINGLE STORY marked PNS here on POCHO, jeez, pay some attention:
Pocho Ñews Service PNS is a wholly-fictitious subsidiary of the Pocho Corporation, who is a person according to the Supreme Court. Don’t ask us, we just work here.
