Can you donate $20 or $50 so we can make more Ñews y Satire?
MR. POCHO SAYS ¡GRACIAS!

We like making POCHO for you every day, but it takes money. Can you help?

POCHO has no big backers, no mega investors, no brand-name “sponsors.”

That’s deliberate.  We get the cash we need from you, our loyal readers, and no one tells us what we can or cannot publish. Can you help?

We need cash. Ten bucks, $20 or even $50 isn’t that much once you do the math. Can you help?

Example:

POCHO typically publishes a minimum of four new posts every weekday, or 20 posts each week. If only half of those make you laugh, that’s 10 laughs a week. Fifty-two weeks of 10 laughs is over 500 laughs a year. With a $50 donation, your net cost per laugh is a less than a dime.

UNDER TEN CENTS!

Such a deal!

Please kick in a few bucks to keep the Ñews y Satire flowing.  It doesn’t have to be $50 – ten bucks, twenty, whatever, it’s all good. We take all plastic and PayPal tambien.

Click on the DONATE button to give and thank you for your support.

It’s not easy being a pocho. That’s the premise of The Loteria, by Santa Cruz, CA film student Joseph Cueto-Araiza. He grew up in a Mexican-American family where nobody could speak Spanish, and that includes Joseph Cueto-Araiza.

MR. POCHO SAYS ¡GRACIAS!

We like making POCHO’s Ñews y Satire for you every day, but it takes money. Can you please help?

We like to afflict the comfortable, comfort the afflicted, and mock the pendejos. Please, can you help?

POCHO has no big backers, no mega investors, no brand-name “sponsors.” We get a trickle of revenue from Google Adsense (it barely pays my iPhone bill) and that’s all. No one owns us, no one tells us what we can or cannot do. But independence ain’t free. We’re hoping to raise some extra cash from you, our loyal readers. Can you help?

We would like to upgrade our hardware/server arrangements, redesign the website, and maybe someday pay our hard-working editors, talented writers, visionary photographers, and kick-ass cartoonists. Oh yes, and our pinches lawyers tambien. Can you help?

Your small donation will keep the Ñews y Satire flowing. Click on the DONATE button to give. We thank you for your support.

 

Con Safos,

Last night we noticed that the Donald Trump campaign started placing ads on POCHO, like the one you see in this screen capture.

We get money from ads like this when you click on them, but no amount of money is worth having this pendejo’s lies and hate on our website.

We have instructed the robots at Google’s Adsense to stop placing Trump ads on our site — just like we did with previous Sheriff Joe Arpaio ads and Governor Jan “Bruja” Brewer ads. [Note: It may take a day or two for this crap to disappear from the system.]

Blocking ads from these haters costs us money.

Can you help us make up the difference with a small donation? Click on DONATE!

Every $10, or $20, or $50 will help us make more Ñews y Satire.

MR. POCHO says thanks!
