ja-cartn1I am currently working on various projects for my blog. Each of them requires significant research. All of this has to be squeezed in between my real job and family obligations. Truth be told, I am a little tired of the politics and wanted to take a break. I was going to write a quick note about the election for the mayor pro tempore that was put on hold for three weeks but in the end I just couldn’t get the words together.

Tuesday, as I was trying to work through the writer’s block, I went to visit the useful idiots and I couldn’t help but laugh at the idiocy that are they represent. First, Jaime Abeytia harped on David Karlsruher’s attacks on Peter Svarzbien’s campaign with a blog post titled “The Day David K Became Martin Paredes…

Typical Abeytia, his marching orders are to create illusions in order to protect his benefactors. It is no secret he detests me and wants nothing better than for me to meet my maker sooner than later. It is par for the course when you take on an entrenched corruptocracy. [Yes, I know it is a made up word]

Unfortunately for another useful idiot, when someone, like Jaime Abeytia, lacks creativity another useful idiot becomes his target. Thus, David Karlsruher ended up being Abeytia’s target. However, when you get two useful idiots going at it their lack of creativity leads to another response, also lacking creativity.

David Karlsruher, not to be outdone by another useful idiot, responded with his own blog titled, “The day Abeytia became Martin Paredes.”

Both of them were going on about the Peter Svarzbien and Al Weisenberger runoff election scheduled for Saturday. Unfortunately, for them, I have not written about that race. Nonetheless, they felt it necessary to drag me into the debate about the race.

There is a reason why I haven’t written about the Svarzbien-Weisenberger race. It is because it doesn’t matter who wins. Both candidates will toe the line for the oligarchy of the city and thus your taxes will go up. Like, Abeytia and Karlsruher, both candidates have people they must please. Neither wants to deal with the problem of secrecy in government operations or in holding the line on taxes. Both candidates are beholden to the public policy agenda that builds playgrounds for the rich on the backs of the taxpayers.

As for Abeytia and Karlsruher, their lover’s quarrel is nothing more than posturing between their masters to see who has better control over their minions.

However, as I laughed at the fact that two bloggers, that pretend that I do not have any readers, I found it hilarious that both felt it necessary to name me in their little schoolyard fight.

I was in a mood for having some fun and I noticed that Jaime Abeytia seems to think my Photoshop skills are “shitty.” To each his own.

I had writer’s block and I wanted to have some fun so I decided to create a digital graphic encompassing all of my skills in Photoshop. As I set out to work on it, I figured, why not, let me throw in a little free hand work, a little digital illustration and, some humor into the mix. Of course, I had to tie it all together with Photoshop.

I also noticed that Jaime is trying out a new cartoon of himself on his Facebook page, so I thought why not cartoon him. After all, he is the reason I decided to try my hand at a digital illustration for today’s post.

I hope you enjoy it and please feel free to pass it around to your friends on Facebook. Just copy to your device and upload to Facebook. I am sure Jaime would appreciate the exposure or overexposure as the case may be.

  1. Martin, this is good. Nothing with a change now and then.

    I love the cartoon of the blob. Very accurate. As they say, he is a legend in his own mind. He still doesn’t get it that his”friends” have a low opinion of him.

    As for Peter, if it is true that the lard King is a, hahaha, advisor to him. That is a sure sign of desperation and reflection of piss poor judgement. Only in El. paso would a politician hire a con for adviser. I am laughing so hard, I have tears. The blob specializes in dirty politics, other than that, good to have around when you need a good laugh. Hahaha, advisor. Haha

  2. You haven’t written about this race because your were told not write about this race. Everybody knows who your boss supports and he didn’t want you screwing it up for his candidate…. Or outing him as a supporter

    1. Oh please these guys like to dish out crap at each other and to others and expect not to get shit thrown back at them. If they sue that means he is right

  3. David K & Abeytia brought you in because most of your pieces consist of a rambling of nothing, always connecting the dots. In short while you might have a handful of readers they are in prayer that one day you will actually connect a dot.

  4. This Photoshop crap coming from the same person who acted like a cry baby pussy when Max Powers posted you sucking on your lollipop.

  5. Martis is just a looser with nothing better to do then pretend he is a somebody & no one cares about this pissant site

  6. entrenched corruptocracy
    How about “kleptocracy?” The “mordidacrats.”

  7. Obviously Martin has a following because if he didn’t there wouldn’t be any rebuttals or comments on his posts. As for Avestia, I have learned that the more he cries conspiracy theory the more the issue is true then just some ramblings of a mad man. Abeytia is a hired gun and it’s a shame that he uses his connect to C. Chavez to manipulate the people. Truth is he is only in El Paso cause he can’t be where he wants AZ and por que he believes la gente de El Chuco aka the Sun City are too stupid to realize what he is doing.

  8. Martin, hope you keep doing this for a long time ’cause it’s fun to read AND if you notice DK always tries to deflect the conversation when you get too close to his truth. At least Jaime has more sense than to react like DK’s little kid tantrums. More sense but still a useful idiot. It’s fun watching them squirm….keep it going

  9. Lard King is a hired gun ! Hahaha, you guys have to stop with the jokes, oh I can’t it anymore, hahahaha.,,Lard King is about as scary and effective as Barney Fife, hahaha, a hired gun, hahaha.

    Martin, you are absolutely correct. Many read but few admit it. Those two lard lovers complaining and criticizing your blog. Saying its worthless, hahaha, yet they take the time to read it and respond, hahahaha. The tears from laughing .

    What is a looser, hahaha. The looser(?) says no one cares about your blog, hahaha, another idiot that won’t admit he reads your blog even though he can’t spell. Hahaha., this is a nice change, I haven’t laughed this hard in a long time.

  10. Bill Melater,

    thanks for a being a loyal reader of my blog. why would anyone read something they dislike so much? Unless they secretly loved it!

    I love Martin’s blog – best fiction you can get for free!

  11. Hahaha, this is getting funnier. Bill it appears he is trying to deflect the truth again. He loves to read fiction, hahaha. If one knows it’s fiction, treat as it such. Not become annoyed because it is fiction you’re reading. Hahaha. Martin, great show., hahahaha, it’s getting funnier, hahahaha, love it.

    1. Martins blog is great for comedy, he’s a joke! His blog is read for the specific purpose of laughing! If you seek intelligence you read David K or Abeytias

  12. The boobs made me snort my tea. I can’t stop laughing. Thank you for the laughs. Some of my friends don’t know who he is but commented that you are a good cartoonist. I agree please post some more. How about one of David K?

  13. Hahaha, another comedian. Martin’s blog today was obviously meant to be humorous. Can’t figure that out. Continue to seek intelliegence, but it damn sure won’t be found on Dumb and Dumber.

    One got his butt handed to him in an election, so he thinks he’ an expert. The other one, keep feeding the sugar high so he continues to believe he’s a legend. In the meantime, he waddles around believing people love him. If he would only take a second to listen and watch. There’s love alright, they live to laugh behind his back.

    So sad, the two wannabes spend so much time stroking each other. Dumb and Dumber, laurel and Hardy?

  14. Hilarious picture of Abeytia! What’s the funniest part is that you dorks all talk shit about each other. It’s like pro wrestling and telenovelas.

    It’s also funny that while Abeytia is a tub of lard, it looks like he gets laid more than you Martin. He’s always with a woman. He’s either rich or hung like a porn star or has a tongue like Gene Simmons. He’s not rich, that’s for sure.

    1. I imagine there must be some women who would go for this disgusting pervert. They’re called sluts. Obviously some politicians such as Veronica Escobar like him, but has anyone ever said they respect him? I don’t see how.

  15. Did you notice he put the same poll you did? Or you did the same poll he did.

    Either way, you have 9 votes. He has 50.

    Penis envy is so funny when you boys start fighting. Where are the women bloggers?

    1. I guess you never took a pyschology class, Chola. “Penis envy” does not refer to men envying each others penises. It refers to a female who would envy of a male because he has one. There are no women who would want to be a blogger like that tub of lard.

  16. Not one ELP blog has dared to comment on the decision of U.S. Representative Bob O’Rourke to vote for fast track authority. I found it so funny that the El Paso Times article on the subject and quoted Richard Dayoub saying that he has read the bill in its entirety and the critics have not. That is a lie because part of the criticism of Fast Track is that nobody is allowed to read the document. Does the Times call out Mr. Dayoub for his lie? Nope

    Will the El Paso voters finally understand what a progressive is? Clue…O’Rourke is not one. He is a corporate shill, just like Bill and Hill. None of the ELP elected officials are progressive….see Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren for an example of what a progressive agenda looks like.

    Sad that the blogs in El Paso are afraid to confront real power.

  17. Xoe, poor Xoe. So naive. Progressives always use the wealthy to advance their agenda. The agenda is not to advance equality. The agenda creates crony capitalism and a political class. Look at EVERY “progressive” country and you’ll find a political class at the top living large while the masses live in poverty. Castro, Pena Nieto, Kim Jong, Chavez…What a joke! You think the “Native American” Elizabeth Warren rides the bus?! Bernie Sanders?! B-t-h, please!

    1. Just out of curiosity, what drives your need to call someone poor and naïve? Are we to understand that you are super-duper intelligent? Only you know? Xoe raised some interesting points.

      As a Mexican female of a certain age I recall how such condescension was used to keep us, the females, in “our place” especially used by the brown brothers or if one was involved in a field that was traditionally for the male species.

      And as per your usual, you had to drag Mexico into the equation but at least you also mentioned some other ‘’non sequitur names”.

    2. Vegas,

      2 kinds of socialism….marxist and democratic. Clearly you only think of Marxist Socialism that is highly authoritarian. I understand that the typical American is so politically ignorant that a nuanced argument can not be heard over the simpletons who shout their ignorance as if volume level is a debate point. Even in American politics someone like O’Rourke is not a progressive or considered a progressive with the exception of the local people here who have no idea what an american progressive represents. Enjoy wallowing in your ignorance.

      Thank you Pati for the nice words. I find it interesting that still as of this writing not one El Paso blogger has mentioned O’Rourke supporting the President when the entire progressive wing of the democratic party voted against the President and his free trade fast track authority. I guess who worked on what campaign is about all the blogs in ELP care about.

  18. Halarious! Right on Marti! Half wits and nit wits, quite amusing. You all forgot Heckle & Jeckle. Your stories are getting better and sharper to the point. Does anybody ever comment on little Buddha’s blog or does no comment mean no comment.
