According to POCHO Jefe-in-Chief Lalo Alcaraz 2017 Calendar, it’s Gucamole Wednesday, and that’s why we’re sharing the best guacamole video ever:
Last week, when Chicago students organized to protest a Donald Trump campaign rally, some demonstrators carried big prints of this image, by Carlos Barbarena. Our Spanish isn’t perfect, but apparently Carlos was making a point about the Donald and his hair.
PREVIOUSLY ON TRUMP IN CHICAGO:
Earlier this week, in Columbia, South Carolina, Confederate-flag-waving Ku Klux Klan white wingers paraded downtown. The paramilitary-garbed haters were joined by an uninvited sousaphone player who provided ironic musical accompaniment. (A sousaphone is the marching band variety of tuba that wraps around the player, making it easier to carry.) Enjoy the tubalicious music (is that Wagner?) AND the play-by-play commentary from a woman who may also be the videographer/uploader. “Stupid is as stupid does,” she notes. “This is a family tree with no branches.”
We don’t know this man, but we’d like to shake his hand! A (Phoenix?) demonstrator with a Mexican flag totally punked the pro-Sheriff Joe crowd in this new camera phone vid uploaded Wednesday by anti-immigration protestor Tucson William. [NSFW audio — some F-bombs.]
They look scrumptious — especially the cheese that she crisps on the grill at El Cortez — but please, Chef Lindsay Porter, it’s kay-so, not kee-so! To be fair, El Cortez is in Edmonton, Alberta, Canadia, where they call their dollars “Loonies.” PRO TIP: Cortez is NOT a Mexican hero, unless you mean the Nike Cortez.
(PNS reporting from FRESNO) The 16 Cal State Fresno MEChA students who flew to Hong Kong to join the student protest — but were quickly kicked out of the demonstration — returned home late Sunday night.
The students were ejected from Occupy Central after Hong Kong student organizers discovered that the Movimiento Estudiantil Chican@ de Aztlán backed the Chinese Communist government. As the only Reds participating in the protests, their calls for “revolution” differed significantly from the protestors’ demands.
YouTube hands-on math star Vi Hart makes a hexaflexagon tortilla for a delicious two-layer Flex-Mex taco. Kids: You CAN try this at home with a flour tortilla, a knife, guac, frijoles, pico de gallo and cheese and a little bit of patience and manual dexterity. Remember that doll that said, “Math is hard”? Forget that babosa.
Riots in Rio continue as the country prepares for the World Cup next year. Self-appointed “hacktivist” group Anonymous Brasil has its own spin on events.
The Daily Show’s Senior Latino Correspondent Al Madrigal goes to Washington, D.C. to meet with demonstrators who want Puerto Rico to become America’s 51st state. [Disclaimer: Al is POCHO’s Migrant Editor.]
In this video for POCHO U’s Gabacho Outreach Program (POCHO U, GOP!) I demonstrate the Chicano Handshake including a California version, a Texas version and a version with extra love. Why can’t we be friends?
What is she wearing? And who are those dudes in the background?
Now in the shadows of the world’s most famous amusement park residents of Anaheim are bravely (and in some cases stupidly) confronting the Anaheim Police Department, an at times callous, authoritative government power that isn’t accustomed to being questioned even when it executes people. Crisis always spurs creativity and the most original ideas are presently forming outside of the gates of Disneyland.

After the regular Pasadena Rose Parade, the Occupy Rose Parade people were kind enough to march right in front of my phonecam, leaving me little choice but to take their pictures.
After all, we are the 99%!
