LA LEY DE HERODES: O TE CHINGAS O TE JODES

12 05 2011

MAL DE MUCHOS, CONSUELO DE TONTOS.

EL QUE RIE AL ULTIMO, RIE MEJOR.

CUANDO NO LLUEVE, LLOVIZNA.

UN CLAVO, SACO OTRO CLAVO.

ES DE SABIOS CAMBIAR DE OPINION.

MAS SABE EL DIABLO POR VIEJO QUE POR DIABLO.

SE QUEDO PARA VESTIR SANTOS.

BILLETE MATA CARITA.

MAS RAPIDO CAE UN HABLADOR QUE UN COJO.

DEL PLATO A LA BOCA, SE CAE LA SOPA.

NO POR MUCHO MADRUGAR, AMANECE MAS TEMPRANO.

CAMARON QUE SE DUERME SE LO LLEVA LA CORRIENTE.

LE CAYO EL CHAHUIZTLE.

ENTRE MENOS BURROS MAS OLOTES.

EL DINERO ES COMO LA GUAYABA, IMPOSIBLE DE ESCONDER.

NO ESTA EL HORNO PARA BOLLOS.

EL QUE POR GUSTO ES BUEY, HASTA LA COYUNTA LAME

SE QUEDO COMO EL PERRO DE LAS DOS TORTAS.

MATRIMONIO Y MORTAJA DEL CIELO BAJA.

MAS VALE SOLO QUE MAL ACOMPAÑADO.

DIME CON QUIEN ANDAS Y TE DIRE QUIEN ERES.

NO HAGAS COSAS BUENAS QUE PAREZCAN MALAS.

LE SALIO EL TIRO POR LA CULATA

PERRO QUE LADRA, NO MUERDE.

AMOR DE LEJOS, AMOR DE PENDEJOS.

EL QUE PARTE Y COMPARTE SE LLEVA LA MEJOR PARTE.

DE LOCOS Y TRAGONES ESTAN LLENOS LOS PANTEONES.

SE LO LLEVO LA TRISTE CANCION

SE QUEDO SIN EL CUADRO Y SIN LA ESTAMPA.

DIME DE QUE PRESUMES, Y TE DIRE DE QUE CARECES.

EL MUERTO AL HOYO Y EL VIVO AL POLLO.

NO ESTA EL HORNO PARA BOLLO NI EL AGUA PARA CHOCOLATE.

MAS VALE UNA COLORADA QUE 100O DESCOLORIDAS.

LAS PENAS CON PAN SON MENOS.

POR LA BOCA MUERE EL PEZ.

LA LEY DE HERODES: O TE CHINGAS O TE JODES.

NO HAY MAL QUE DURE CIEN AÑOS NI CUERPO QUE LO RESISTA.

ARRIEROS SOMOS Y EN EL CAMINO ANDAMOS.

PORQUE PUEDO VENGO, NO VENGO A VER SI PUEDO.

ABOGADO, JUEZ Y DOCTOR, CUANTO MAS LEJOS, MEJOR.

MAS VALE PASO QUE DURE, QUE TROTE QUE CANSE.

NO TE CALIENTES COMAL, QUE NO ES PA’TI LA TORTILLA.

AL QUE QUIERA AZUL CELESTE, QUE LE CUESTE.

LA VERDAD NO PECA PERO INCOMODA.

PENA…ROBAR Y QUE TE CACHEN.

NI PICHAS, NI CACHAS, NI DEJAS BATEAR.

PENA…SALIR DESNUDO A LA CALLE Y QUE NO TE VOLTEEN A VER.

CADA QUIEN QUE SE RASQUE CON SUS PROPIAS UÑAS.

NADIE ESCARMIENTA EN CABEZA AJENA.

LOS ARRIMADOS, COMO LOS MUERTOS,A LOS TRES DIAS APESTAN.

PIENSA MAL Y ACERTARAS.






A Little Story – I’m Ready To Go Now

The businessman was at the pier of a small coastal Mexican village when a small boat with just one fisherman docked. Inside the small boat were several large yellowfin tuna. The businessman complimented the Mexican on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took to catch them. The Mexican replied only a little while.

 

The businessman then asked why he didn’t stay out longer and catch more fish? The Mexican said he had enough to support his family’s immediate needs. The businessman then asked, but what do you do with the rest of your time? The Mexican fisherman said, “I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, take a siesta with my wife, Maria, stroll into the village each evening where I sip wine and play guitar with my amigos; I have a full and busy life, señor.”

The businessman scoffed, “I am a Harvard MBA and I could help you. You should spend more time fishing and with the proceeds buy a bigger boat. With the proceeds from the bigger boat you could buy several boats; eventually you would have a fleet of fishing boats. Instead of selling your catch to a middleman, you would sell directly to the processor and eventually open your own cannery. You would control the product, processing and distribution. You would need to leave this small coastal fishing village and move to Mexico City, then LA and eventually New York City where you would run your expanding enterprise.”

The Mexican fisherman asked, “But señor, how long will this all take?” To which the businessman replied, “15-20 years.” “But what then, señor?” The businessman laughed and said, “That’s the best part! When the time is right you would announce an IPO and sell your company stock to the public and become very rich. You would make millions.” “Millions, señor? Then what?” The businessman said, “Then you would retire. Move to a small coastal fishing village where you would sleep late, fish a little, play with your kids, take a siesta with your wife, stroll to the village in the evenings where you could sip wine and play your guitar with your amigos.”

The fisherman, still smiling, looked up and said, “Isn’t that what I’m doing right now?”

Mr. Horace Mitchell Bring Down That Wall

27 05 2010

Dear President,

I would like to express my disappointment in regards to the CSUB and Chicano Commencements. These two events are very important for me, my family and many other graduating students at California State University , Bakersfield . Because these are the only opportunities we get to share the completion of a long educational journey I expected the university, my university, to provide a sufficient amount of tickets and the proper venues for these special events.

I am upset that the Chicano Commencement Ceremony will take place (again) in such a small place, the Dore Theater. My feelings have already been expressed to M.E.Ch.A. and their response disappointed me even more. I learned that your office and the office of Bill Potter have been unresponsive and neglectful to the requests made for using the Icardo Center as location for the Chicano Commencement Ceremony.

Students at CSUB have been successfully encouraged to complete our educational goals and as we make our best efforts to achieve this objective, the number of candidates for graduation increases every year, and with this, the need for more suitable locations to hold the commencement ceremonies.

I took the time to write this message because I was already disappointed to learn that we will have limited seating at our Chicano Commencement Ceremony and I was hoping that by participating at the CSUB Commencement we would have a better opportunity to invite our extended families to celebrate our success. Why is the amount of tickets limited for our CSUB Commencement when the event is taking place outdoors in such an open place as is the amphitheatre? Furthermore, I feel as if we are being slapped by the institution for fencing the surroundings of the amphitheatre so no one is allowed to enter our ceremony without a ticket.

What is the point of acquiring a higher education degree along with an immense educational debt if we are not allowed to celebrate our accomplishments with the ones that mean the most to us? It is important for us that our extended families and friends attend our ceremonies so that they visit our campus and get to know our faculty and administrators.

With that being expressed, I hope that you and your administration reconsider the venue to be used to celebrate the Chicano Commencement and the unnecessary use of restrictive tickets and fences. My hopes are to receive a speedy response on this subject; I can be contacted at 661-342-3631.

In advance, thank you.

Cordially,

Cecilia Arámbula Medina

SB 1451 – Correcting Texas “revisionist history”

12 05 2010
Concerns that “extremist” curriculum decisions being made in Texas don’t one day creep into California textbooks has prompted legislation that would require additional content screening to filter out the changes.
SB 1451, by state Sen. Leland Yee, D-San Francisco, comes in response to a decision by the Texas Board of Education to include as part of a social studies/history curriculum framework update some eye-catching edits including:

  • Highlighting the inaugural address of Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederate State of America.
  • Dropping Thomas Jefferson from a list of great political thinkers.
  • Reducing information about the impact of Latinos in U.S. history.
  • Replacing hip-hop music with country-western as an important cultural influence.
  • And, replacing “capitalism” with “free market” and the term “democratic” (as in a form of government) with “constitutional republic.”
Yee said in an interview last week that he’s worried some or all of what he called “revisionist history” would make its way into California textbooks because Texas is reviewing its curriculum framework ahead of California and the publishing industry might make it expensive not to follow along.

That is, textbook publishers will use the curriculum adopted in Texas – the nation’s second largest textbook market next to California – to write the textbooks that California might have to adopt because they will be the most current.

It seems that what’s going on in Texas was that they were trying to use politics and political philosophy to change the way in which textbooks would be written,” Yee said in an interview with Cabinet Report.
“I think that clearly one needs to get into exactly why this is so critical,” Yee said. “So what if Texas has a framework that we don’t like, how is that going to influence us?”

His bill would require the California State Board of Education, upon next review of the history/social science framework, to notify the legislature if it finds that any of the new content adopted in Texas has been included in the curriculum.

California’s history/social science framework was due to be reviewed and adopted this year but suspended until the 2013-14 school year as a result of budgetary concerns and the passage of Assembly Bill X4 2 last year.

“What this bill will do is require the [California] State Board of Education to look at the changes that the Texas Board of Education is suggesting in their framework and evaluate that against the appropriateness to the California standards,” Yee said. The state board would then be required to report to the legislature its findings.

The Texas Board of Education is now taking comments on the framework revisions and is scheduled to take a final vote in May. The elected board is currently made up of a Republican majority of 10-5.

Yee’s bill passed the Senate Education Committee and now heads to the Senate Appropriations Committee.

Letter to Simmons Honey Ranchito Douglas Arizona

5 05 2010

Dear Mr. Simmons,

On my most recent trip to Arizona, Pierce and Bisbee to be exact, I purchased a jar of your wonderful desert wildflower honey. I would have bought more but it was the last jar I found at the Bisbee Co-op. My family loves it and in fact it is nearly done.  Unfortunately as you may be aware of the recent passage of the oppressive racial profiling law against persons of Mexican origin, including myself.  I regret to inform you that I will notbe returning to Arizona, and specifically the Wilcox area of Southern Arizona for the foreseeable future and will most defiantly boycott any products with an Arizona origin, including yours. I do regret this action given I am sure you are a wonderful human being puton this earth to do good for mankind.

In googling your company Simmons Honey Ranchito I’ve found it to be just the type of business I try to patronage when ever possible. You may want to advise your elected officials and other local businesses of the unfortunate suffering a small company like yours will experience as a result of their ungodly political short sightedness.

I am only one person and you are only one company and one loss of a $12.99 sale may not have much of an impact on either one of our finances; however multiply this by tens of thousands or millions of times and well I’m sure I don’t have to explain further.
