Strikes protesting the new tax system in the nation have been continuing for several weeks, despite the courts ruling them illegal. Last week, some strikers took over operating rooms to prevent oncology patients from receiving scheduled surgeries.
From an article written by Laura Alvarado for The Costa Rica Star; “members of the labor union were upset because the hospital arranged to get assistance from surgeons and professionals from the Puriscal clinic to handle some of the surgeries that have been piling up for patients in the areas of oncology and orthopedics; the plan was to go through with several surgeries this Thursday.”
For such a serious subject that everyone has a right to be outraged over, we decided to go with a boob joke. Thankfully, my editor is as juvenile as I am.
What kind of person would want to be part of something that disparages, slanders, and disrespects Dear Leader and his sycophantic followers? Hopefully, you.
Making a contribution supports my work and keeps the cartoons, columns, and videos coming. My income is from newspapers that subscribe to my work and small contributors. George Soros hasn’t sent me a million dollar check in weeks. Making a contribution of any amount, or buying a print for $40.00, makes you part of this specific resistance, and a member of Team Claytoonz (we’re still working on the name). You are complicit, an accomplice, and in cahoots (and whatever gangster terms we can think of) with this political satire pointing out that the stupid emperor has no clothes. Contributions can be made through PayPal, checks, and wads of cash exchanged in back alleys.
Whether you can help support, can’t, or just choose not to, please continue to enjoy and keep reading my work. Thank you!!!
