Which Messages Go Together? Ties in Liberal Political Gear from Zazzle

Because Irregular Times receives a significant number of readers for the tens of thousands of articles that have accumulated here over the last 18 years, just paying to keep the website going costs a significant amount. Because none of us who write for Irregular Times was born with a trust fund, we’ve got to get [...]

Will Democrats Face Obama's Policy Of Killing Americans Without Trial?

When George W. Bush began assassinations of non-Americans without trial, Democrats expressed strong objections. When Barack Obama began assassinations of Americans, without any trial, Democrats got confused about what to do. A few have expressed opposition, but many, leaders and rank-and-file alike, have decided that they’ll support Obama’s policy of extrajudicial killings, even though it’s [...]

Top 50 Liberal Bumper Stickers of August 2012: Warren, Romney, Obama, Stein

To cover the costs required to keep Irregular Times going, we sell liberal political bumper stickers, buttons and shirts — over 10,000 different kinds of them.

With Corker and Clayton out of the Question, Write in Jim Maynard for Senate in TN

If your politics are anywhere to the left of Pat Robertson, the two major parties offer no viable option in the Tennessee Senate race.

If you ever visit the historical sites of Boston or Philadelphia, you’ll notice t-shirts and buttons for sale at just about every available souvenir stand, referencing Benjamin Franklin’s quote, “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” Made by historically-minded Guatemalan and Chinese sweatshop workers, these pieces of swag offer [...]

Occupy Grammar

What’s the different message of a bumper sticker in the shape of the United States and the label “occupied territory” and a bumper sticker that’s exactly the same but with a label that reads “occupy”? [...]

1 Free Bernie Sanders Bumper Sticker Available to a Vermonter

I don’t know why (I live two states away from Vermont), but the Bernie Sanders for Senate campaign has sent me a Re-Elect Bernie bumper sticker:

It’s free to the first person in Vermont who leaves a comment to this post with an e-mail address — the public won’t see your e-mail; I’ll use [...]

Obama Approves Offshore Drilling With Untested Technology

The Obama Administration has just agreed to expand offshore drilling along the shore of Virginia, and to allow Shell Oil to conduct offshore drilling in the Beaufort Sea’s icy Arctic waters, using untested technology. Barack Obama has been an anti-environment President, in the pocket of corporations that profit from selling fossil fuel. He is not a decent choice for serious environmentalist voters in 2012. [...]

A Hood On The Head Does Not Mean A Hoodlum In The Head

Today, U.S. Representative Bobby Rush wore a hooded sweatshirt on the floor of Congress and delivered the following message:

“The death of Trayvon Martin is an American tragedy. Too often this violent act is repeated in the streets of our nation.

Racial profiling has to stop. Just because someone wears a hoodie, does not make [...]

Hey Chris Christie! Why don’t YOU shut up for a second?

Chris Christie, why don’t YOU shut up for a second? While you’re at it, why don’t you step down from office, and allow someone more dignified and decent to represent the state of New Jersey? [...]
