WTF: Caganer Pooping Christmas Statue

Posted in Funny Stuff with tags , , , , , , , , on December 23, 2009 by bearmancartoons

I have been to Spain. I have been to Spain at Christmas.  Unlike the crappy manger scenes that Americans make that is limited to the manger only, in Spain they make a scene of the entire town with the manger being only a part of it.

And while in America, you can barely get people to notice when a manger scene is erected, in Spain they line up for a half mile in some places just to see it.  I guess I didn’t look close enough to notice the Caganer.  Here is one of Queen Elizabeth.

Yes hidden in Spanish scenes is a pooping statue.  It started in Catalonia but has since moved to other areas.  Somehow it symbolizes equality because in the end it doesn’t matter how famous you are, everyone poops.

One company creates many varieties poking fun at various icons and celebrities. There is even a Barack Obama with the words “Yes we Can” on it. Check out the video.

Oh and scroll down. One more day to vote in the Editorial Cartoon Caption Contest. Winner announced on Thursday.

Bearman Cartoon: Obama wins Peace Prize?

Posted in BearToons with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 10, 2009 by bearmancartoons

My friends on the right at Big Hollywood and also on the left at the Cincinnati Beacon are a flutter about President Barack Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize.  Seems the President himself was a little confused as he is only the third US President to win while in office.  Maybe he just misunderstood the call.

Bearman Cartoon: Obama and Carter

Posted in BearToons with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 22, 2009 by bearmancartoons

I firmly believe that there are people who oppose President Obama and everything he stands for simply because of the color of his skin. As Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post does, I would tend to throw most of the “birthers” in that group (these are the people who say Obama shouldn’t be President because they think he wasn’t born in the United States).

But former President Jimmy Carter does nothing to further real work done in race relations or even bring to light real racist attitudes toward the current President, when he said, “I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man.” An “overwhelming portion”???

It is a huge disservice to the sitting President to make a comment like that.  So now instead of opposing plans and creating dialogue about it, Obama’s foes will simply oppose everything without dialogue for fear of being charged with racism.

On the other hand the Right doesn’t do a good job of protecting themselves against charges of racism. When 5% of a anti-Obama policy rally contains racist imagery or signage and there isn’t a strong stance within the group itself to weed those people out, it is no wonder that those are the people that end up on the news.

I like what Bill Clinton had to say in response and would be more in line with my thinking:  “I believe that while it is true that some of the most extreme opponents of President Obama may also still have racial prejudice, I believe that 100 percent of those who are opposing him now would be against him if he were a white Democrat.”

Much like Joe Wilson disrupted the President’s address, Carter is distrupting the President’s agenda. Jimmy does a great job of building houses.  He should stick with that.

Bearman Cartoon: Obama the Socialist

Posted in BearToons with tags , , , , , , , , on September 11, 2009 by bearmancartoons

It doesn’t matter the President or the opposition, nothing seems to change. No matter how benign a comment or action by the U.S. President, the opposition has to turn it into a rallying cry. This week in the United States, President Barack Obama gave a speech on education aimed at students and taking personal responsibility for their education.

Some conservatives applauded the effort while others had a different attitude. “It is not the President’s job to lecture my kids on responsibility. It is MINE.” Funny these same people would probably wonder where the truant officer was when they see other peoples’ kids roaming the mall during school hours. 

But liberals, please don’t take a high and mighty stand either.  This is the same thing you did to Bush, they did to Clinton, you did to Bush I, you did to Reagan…  My problem is that these spout offs become the boy who cried wolf.  You might have an important point on an important subject but by then I have stopped listening.

So I bring you today’s Editorial Cartoon.
