POCHO’s Ñews y Satire is under 10¢ a laugh when you donate $50!


Can you donate $20 or $50 so we can make more Ñews y Satire?

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.” Longtime readers may have notice we dripped Google’s syndicated ads.

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?


POCHO typically publishes 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.


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.

This LA-born Mexican-American hero voluntarily joined his Japanese-American neighbors in the WWII Manzanar internment camp

Seventeen year old Los Angeles-born Ralph Lazo (photo) voluntarily entered the Manzanar Japanese-American internment camp after learning his neighbors were being locked up by the government. He later joined the military and helped liberate the Philippines and spent his life “discouraging the occurrence of similar injustices and violations of civil liberties in the future.” [Video by Velshi and Ruhle for MSNBC.]

Did you ever ask yourself WHAT YOU WOULD DO if the time came when the Trump regime’s troopers came to round up your neighbors? THAT TIME IS NOW.

Please put some cash for POCHO underneath this year’s Chancla Tree!

Can you donate $5 or $10 so we can make more ñews y satire?

As fams around the world place presents for loved ones under the Chancla Tree, please consider making a small holiday donation to POCHO so we can continue breaking the ñews!

POCHO needs money to upgrade our webservers, money to fix our broken computers and, more than anything, money to pay our editors and writers and videographers and cartoonists who have contributed a year’s worth of amazingly chingon content for free.

Every $10, $20 or $50 helps. Click on the donate button now.

Thank you, pochos!

High fashion lets you look like a cholo – if you have the dinero

Thanks to Professor Eliza Rodriguez Y Gibson who pointed my now-scalded eyes, my scarred Mexican-American soul, to this fantabulous atrocity!

Haute couture non-mexican “cholos”!!!! Holy Baudrillard meets Eddie J. Olmos’s Pachuco — who would be rolling over in his grave if he weren’t still thriving in Hollywood!

Chingones and Chingonas: You’ve got to see ‘Wonder Woman’

Chingones and Chingonas, here’s a movie you’ve got to see. Mujer Maravilla! FOR REAL.

Follow me on this. The original Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter, if you know your Pocho Historia, is a Latina.

In fact she’s a lot like another rarely acknowledged Latina goddess of the screen, Rita Hayworth aka Margarita Cansino.

You like comic books and superhero movies? Of course you do.
