We Are Amused. Gay Marriage Okay In England. Why Is The USA Behind In Equality?

When you think of a nation that’s ready to shed tradition, the United Kingdom is not the first that comes to mind. The very name of the nation suggests the memory of feudal warlords battling over control of a little island. The United States sound a bit more up-to-date, with the abstraction of state replacing […]

July 2013 Donation: International Labor Rights Forum

Stop buying your clothes at Walmart, Target, J.C. Penney, The Gap, and Sears.

In the face of a massive factory disaster that has killed more than eleven hundred Bangladeshi garment workers this year, these corporate apparel chains have refused to sign on to the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh that would create […]

Will U.S. and Europe Come Together To Build A Bigger Big Brother?

What we need, if we are to avoid these two scenarios, is another form of international cooperation – not of nations, but of activist individuals who are willing to take a stand against their own governments. […]

Baking The Queen’s Cookies

When the royal family advises me about how their web site is going to track me, it leaves me feeling like simply turning my back on Elizabeth and walking straight out of the room normally the next time she comes to visit. […]

Canadian Oil Leaking And Exploding, But Still Corporations Love The XL Pipeline Idea

Today, a “large swath” of Lac-M├ęgantic, a town in Quebec, was obliterated in explosions caused by crude oil that was being transported through the town. Large amounts of the crude oil also spilled into the Chaudiere River. The oil was being sent to Maine, to be used by Americans to cruise around in their cars […]

In Turkey, Taksim Movement Declares its Breadth

Today I discovered Taksim Solidarity, a website at which the movement against authoritarianism in Turkish government shares its messages with the world in German, Turkish and English. The word “solidarity” seems apt, as a major theme of today’s communication has to do with the authorities’ attempts to split the movement along traditional lines of distinction. […]

From Humor to Horror in Turkey: How Could They Beat Their Own People? (…)

This morning, as I looked to the popular headline service Twitter for accounts of secular protest across Turkey, what struck me first was the humor in a pair of photographs from Ankara and Adana:

What whimsy, I thought. What fun. But then I thought about why some of these largely peaceful protesters are […]

Breeding Buddhists Burn Muslim School

Rohingya Muslims have not been completely non-violent, but it is absurd for Buddhists around the world to continue to pretend that their religion does not hold the weight of responsibility for the bloodshed and destruction. […]

People Getting Married Is Worse Than Violent Assault, French Protesters Say

The French right wing moral code: Allowing people who love each other to get married is wrong, but engaging in violent riots is morally upright. […]

Irregular Times Donations: Charity Water and the Sunlight Foundation

Here at Irregular Times, we sell sweatshop-free t-shirts to keep the website going, but we want to do more than that. Part of our way of being ethical about the t-shirt sales we make is to make sure they’re made and printed in the USA, where labor standards are higher than in the sweatshop-soaked countries […]

Donations: Partnership for Civil Justice and Coffee Kids

Each time we sell a made-in-the-USA liberal political t-shirt at Skreened, we set aside one dollar to donate to a liberal political cause and another dollar to better the economic condition of poor people outside the United States.

This month, our domestic political donation goes to The Partnership for Civil Justice in recognition of […]
