Al termine del mandato di Obama si riacutizzano le tensioni razziali, non oso immaginare cosa ci aspetta con Trump…

Obama 2.0

Questi due disegni li ho fatti a Novembre scorso in occasione della rielezione di Obama. Di solito il secondo mandato è quello in cui il Presidente è più libero di agire. Bush Jr. non ha dovuto aspettare il secondo mandato, già al primo ha fatto le cose che voleva veramente fare, tipo buttar giù un paio di palazzi, fare la guerra all’Islam e mettere sotto scacco le opposizioni occidentali. Cosa potrà fare Obama per pareggiare i conti?

I made these two drawings last year in November, when they re-elected Obama. Usually the second term is that in which the President is free to act. Bush Jr. did not have to wait for the second term to do all the things he really wanted to do, like throwing down a couple of buildings, wage war on Islam and put Western world oppositions under attack. What will Obama do to even the score?

Padri e figli / Fathers & sons

Settimana standard per quanto riguarda gli allenamenti, anche se non ho ancora fatto gli accertamenti richiestimi dal medico sportivo, per cui niente lavori, ma mi sento bene. Mia figlia fa una campestre, Obama viene rieletto, rivolta generazionale nel PdL, mio padre compie gli anni. Mi sembra che tutto torni, il cerchio settimanale si chiude… / An average training week, with no particular highlights. My daughter runs a cross, Obama is re-elected, problems in Berlusconi’s party, 70 candles for my father. That’s all, weekly cycle is complete!

 

Martedì 10k, mercoledì idem, venerdì 45′ abbastanza tirati con due belle salite, sabato 1h circa, il tutto di fondo lento.

Ride the Seismic Wave

The Abruzzo earthquake (5th April 2009) seemed to touch the open wounds of italian political situation.  Mr. Berlusconi is always ready to ride the wave of tragedies, even when he is directly responsible. Consider that the governments that he leaded produced disasters to the Italian territory and it’s building consistency (“Condono edilizio” of 1994 and 2004). In the months before the Abruzzo earthquake, he once more delayed the introduction of a more strict anti-seismic building code. Shortcuts in the application of these codes were also suggested in the first versions of his anti-crisis “Piano Casa”. Then came the wave.

I have a few other images featuring Mr. Berlusconi: President Obama was bothered by a fly and by Mr. Berlusconi but got rid of them both. Next, you have to read Larsson‘s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” to understand the one on the right. The original painting is by Filippo Panseca, former “Regime Architect” during the Craxian Age.  Painting depicts Mr. Berlusconi with minister Carfagna (a sex addict with a cocksucker).
