You know, just because Barack Obama has been elected President of the United States, that doesn't mean our problems are gone. I mean, look at your bunions. They're still there, right? Larger-scale issues remain: Guantanamo? Open. Habeas corpus? Loopholes all over the place. Warrantless surveillance of the American people? It continues under the Obama administration. Torture? Covered up. Endangered Species Act? The Obama administration resists it.
If the aftermath of this election tells us anything, it tells us that change really doesn't come from the top down. It's got to come from the bottom up. If you want a better world, you've got to stand up and say something about it. And that's the first reason why we're offering these bumper stickers, buttons and t-shirts: to help you get the word out that Obama or No Obama, the status quo won't do. Something's got to change -- really change -- around here, and public advocacy for that change is the first step. So pin on that button. Wear that shirt. Slap on that bumper sticker, and start a conversation in your community.
The second reason we're selling these shirts is to help support us in our work as writers here at Irregular Times. Our main job here is muckraking -- poking with a stick at the oozing slicks our national politicians pretend don't exist and the mainstream media looks over. That's why we're following the intramural conflict among Democrats over the National Applications Office. But in order to be able to do what we do, unlike Rahm Emanuel, we have to eat. Picking up a shirt, a sticker or a button today would be of great help.
Creationism, Science and Paul LePage Bumper Stickers
When asked, “Do you believe in creationism, and do you think it should be taught in Maine public schools?, ” Republican candidate for Governor of Maine Paul LePage responded, "I believe yes and yes." You can't get much clearer than that. Paul LePage wants to put creationism in public schools. But science belongs in public school, and creationism belongs in Sunday School. Paul LePage and his pushy version of creationism are wrong for Maine.
Furloughs, Ferries, Linda Lingle Sticker Bumper Stickers
Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle doesn't care about the environment: she scuttled legal, responsible environmental review for the Superferry. Linda Lingle doesn't care about kids: she sent them home on Fridays for the school year without an education. From furloughs to ferries, Linda Lingle has been wrong for Hawai'i. Not another shameful Republican governor to shame this beautiful state! (Anti-Lingle bumper sticker)

Joe Barton is a Tragedy Bumper Sticker
Texas Republican congressman Joe Barton would be put in charge of American oil policy if the Republicans win back the House in 2010. The same Joe Barton said that the "tragedy of the first proportion" in the Gulf Oil Spill was that BP is being required to pay to clean up its own mess. Call it like you see it: Joe Barton is a tragedy of the first proportion! Don't let this unhinged man take charge of so much as county animal control. (Anti-Barton bumper sticker)
War is Making us Poor Postcard
It's not just a moral question, although the moral weight of war is not inconsiderable. Even from a self-interested point of view, we ought to consider making peace: all these years of war are making us poor. Let's stop the bombing and stop the military contracts and reap a peace dividend. (Anti-war postcard)
Stop SB1070 T-Shirt
SB 1070 puts Arizona police officers in the position of carrying out searches, seizures and even possibly detentions without probable cause, interfering in law-abiding people's lives because they somehow look like illegal aliens. Express your opposition with this Stop SB 1070 T-Shirt, made ethically by American Apparel.
Sie Sind in Arizona... Papiere! Keychain
Auf Deutsch: Halt! Wo gehen sie? Sie sind jetzt in Arizona. Ihre Papiere, bitte! Mit SB 1070 wir sind alle illegal immigrants. In English: a reminder of the brownshirt mentality toward people of brown skin in Arizona. Stop the police state. Stop SB 1070
Arizona Uber Alles Poster Print
This agitating protest poster uses the colors of the state flag of Arizona as a backdrop to illuminate a state trooper, who under the new SB 1070 law will be forced to demand the production of proper papers from anyone who looks suspiciously like an illegal immigrant. Can you say brown skin? There's an awful lot of brown skin in Arizona. Resist the effort to turn America into some kind of twisted version of a fascist state.
Do I Look Like an Immigrant? Sticker Bumper Sticker
This bumper sticker reacts to the new Arizona law SB 1070 that requires police to stop people if they look like immigrants and detain them if they don't have immigration papers. With the Arizona state flag in the background, this bumper sticker asks, "Do I Look Like an Immigrant?" And here's the truth: we ALL look like Immigrants.
Arizona Against SB 1070 Bumper Sticker
The passage of SB 1070 in Arizona should be of concern, and not just to illegal immigrants. The new law requires police to stop anybody they suspect of looking like an illegal immigrant, to demand they produce immigration papers, and to detain any person who doesn't have immigration papers until they can prove they are American citizens or legal residents. Who looks like an illegal alien? Who will be profiled and detained? It's time to stop the madness. It's time to repeal SB 1070. Show your opposition to this crazy new law with an Arizona Against SB 1070 bumper sticker on your back bumper.
No Human Being is Illegal T-Shirt
Since the passage of SB 1070, all levels of law enforcement from the town constable on up are required to decide whether a person raises their "suspicion" about being an illegal immigrant. If so, the officer must demand immigration papers, and if none exist, the person must be detained. Think about the basis for that "suspicion" -- it's not like illegal immigrants wear special clothing with tags or anything. This is a racial profiling bill, turning people who "look like" immigrants into illegal detainees. In a righteous world, no human being is illegal for the crime of existing. Stop this madness. Stop it now.
Arizona Greens Bumper Sticker
Newcomers to this desert state are often surprised to find that the landscape is not covered in sand or gravel, but rather in the greenery of ocotillo and cholla and cactus. That's true where the parking lot has not taken over, at least. Show your support for the regreening of Arizona with this bumper sticker, which can also be used to demonstrate your support for the Arizona Green Party.
Honk if you don't know what bumper stickers
Go ahead and honk if you don't know what this sticker means. If you think that's what this sticker means, really. In which case, you should ask yourself: does this bumper sticker really mean what I think it means? Guaranteed to reduce the driving speed of nearby cars by at least 5 miles per hour, except in Seattle, where they're used to this sort of thing.
American Flag Anti-Republican bumper sticker
Despite what Mitt Romney might try to tell you, USA is not spelled GOP. The Republican party has been pushing anti-American values for some time now. Undermining the Constitution. Pushing fear to commit this country to hugely expensive and counterproductive wars. That's not American. And that's why you're not in the GOP. Show your patriotic anti-Republican bona fides with this simple, wordless bumper sticker that says it all.
Fifties Man: Big Brother is Watching T-Shirt
Hey, sport, don't blow your top! Big Brother is Watching, and that means everything is going to turn out A-OK. Right? Mock the return of the '50s authoritarian mindset that enables overweening surveillance and data mining with this made-in-the-USA Big Brother t-shirt.
Drones Kill Kids Bumper Sticker
An undeclared, congressionally unapproved war is being waged using robots in Pakistan to take out offending villages. Innocent civilians are being killed. Kids are being killed. And the corporations that make military robot drones want to deploy them here at home and sell them to other countries around the world. What do you think of that? Yes, drones kill kids. Isn't it time to bring that to an end?
Sledgehammer to a Surveillance Camera Tee Shirt
Have you had it with the NSA listening in on your phone calls, the FBI rifling through your reading lists, the CIA watching your political activities? Have you had it with the cameras on this corner, on that building, from that rooftop over there, always watching, watching, watching without your permission, without your leave? Strike a symbolic blow for your right to privacy in a country that's forgotten the Fourth Amendment with this made-in-the-USA sweatshop-free t-shirt that features a figure flying through the air with a sledgehammer raised to strike a surveillance camera. Say it: you've had enough!
One Nation Under Surveillance Shirt
This made-in-the-USA t-shirt features the classic all-seeing eye atop a pyramid casting its gaze over the continental United States, representing the web of data mining and surveillance programs operating outside the constitution and putting innocent Americans under near-constant scrutiny. I tell you, Joseph McCarthy would have wet himself. We are One Nation Under Surveillance.
O'Bama! Irish Shamrock T-Shirt
Show off your bona-fide Irish heritage and your bona-fide support for Barack Obama in a combination that may not be bona fide in fact but that has bona fide spirit. This sweatshop-free shirt uses a shamrock to put an apostrophe in President Obama's last name, making him President O'Bama.
Freedom Isn't Free Trade Bumper Sticker
Freedom is an American value. But Freedom Isn't Free Trade. "Free Trade" is a euphemism, a misnomer for a practice that robs workers of their freedom to organize, that subjects overseas factory workers to poisoning and low pay and harassment and even at times forced labor. Freedom is many things, but one thing it ain't is Free Trade. Fair Trade keeps commerce going while preserving workers' rights. Support Fair Trade with this bumper sticker on your car.
