My militant Pocho Ocho New Year’s resolutions

8. Remove Christmas lights from my Occupy L.A. tent a little earlier this year

7. Scare white folks with the 2012 Doomsday predictions

6. Get Cheech to collect one of my Chicano paintings

5. Train my revolutionary pets Karl Barx and Chairman Meow to attack all Republicanos in mi barrio

4. Stop calling jaranas “ukuleles”

3. Get Nintendo to buy my video game idea for Dance Dance Mexica Revolution

2. Collect all 20 editions of Occupied America

And my top resolution for 2012 is…

Open up my Revolutionary Coffee Shop called  “Buy Any Beans Necessary!”
