That's 'Lara the Fighting Cow' to you, mister!


Here you go (along with article in German for folks in this half of the country.)



Of course the SVP fellow has responded by pointing out that the black sheep is the only one laughing, and 'clearly this means that only criminals favor CVP policy'...
Ignoring the laughing sun !

The poster can also be read to say that CVP followers are sheepish. Their leadership is a cow. Some bull happened to them and now they're sitting in it.

For being a landlocked nation, there is surprisingly much talk about these seamen. Methinks it's all bull.

Hmmm... In my professional opinion, the SVP win in the artistic category...
I have to disagree on that one... The SVP one looks like it was done by a 15 year old photoshop newbie...

The other one is so childish cute I love it even without the political background! I brings me a smile as big as the black sheep one

Sorry - what was the topic? Oh yes, what the natives are up to...
I don't care if the SVP commissioned a "better" artist to draw their cartoon. In my opinion, the CVP is classier.

As to the black sheep laughing, when you consider how the SVP has been demonizing foreigners in all their political campaigns, I'm not surprised that this "black sheep" is taking delight in the SVP being made a fool in public--and don't assume that that black sheep doesn't own a red passport.

I don't really think they compare. Blending out any symapthies or lack thereof for the parties involved, I think comparing the cartoons is like comparing apples and oranges. The CVP one is caricaturing the general SVP broschure style with the smiling sun, the flags and the mountains, but draw in a lighter and more spoofish style. It's naughty, it's funny, but it's not very profound. The SVP cartoon is drawn in that umistakable graphic, heavy and mimetic SVP brush that you can recognise as being the SVP's brand even if they don't sign it. But for once the content is not a serious issue or a scaremongering but a joke or tounge-in-cheek provocation, so its an unexpected twist on a well know theme.

I think it's a little unfair to judge someone's professional conduct based upon his political opinions. I see no reason why a member of the SVP should be any less competent or conscientious a teacher than anyone else.

But that discussion probably deserves a thread of its own. This one is about cows!
Come on; if you study Economics at University and your lecturer is a lefty, you need to put your mindset to answering questions on the lecturers mindset.

I have had a couple of lecturers that I would say were cows.

Re: Lara the Cow fights back!

Freysinger gave a speech the other day, at a SVP/UDC national meeting in which he expressly stated that it is very important to influence the minds of youngsters with their ideas, and in which he also urged SVP/UDC members to breed rapidly so more will join their ranksHe finished his speech by saying something like 'what are you still doing here listening to me- go home and BREED.
This was received with a standing ovation. I saw it on TSR news and thought about this thread. Sorry I do not have a copy.

Well he's a teacher.

Just as oil companies tell you to drive more, or paper companies tell you to write more, or beweries tell you to drink more, isn't it logical that teachers tell you to have more kids?

Yes, but it does not work with them ... look at demographics in Italy.

So teaching is a weird sect?

They believe in irrational things like logic and knowledge.

Keep your children well away from teachers. That's what I say.

Honestly, did you ever do anything later in life that your teachers advised you?

Interesting to see if SVP/UDC members can influence their children's views enough or if it will turn them in another direction.
I suppose somebody must have statistics on this?
