We, at Irregular Times, are lovers of online culture. We don't just create our own web pages, we also love to roam around the net, and link to those sites that are specially worth of attention.
That said, we also believe that the older forms of communication are vital and exciting aspects of our culture. We love the postal mail in particular, the way that we've developed a public system through which physical messages flow like water across the globe, faster than mountain rivers.
Postcards in particular grab our attention, as markers of meaning: Quick little announcements of who we are at a particular time. Ordinary postcards declare simply where we are, in the form of idealized photographs of well-known locations. We thought we'd turn this idea on its head by offering the following Irregular Postcards - postcards that reflect our mental positions, reflecting neglected locations of thought that need a little spreading around.
We offer these through our online shop of progressive paraphernalia. We hope that you'll go and grab a couple, and send a little piece subversion to your friends and family. Keep in mind that because of our dedication to progressive political causes, we donate 20 percent of our profits to progressive political campaigns. This helps you send a message in two ways at once: Through the mail and with your wallet.
Also check out our collection of progressive postcards at Zazzle. Merry posting!

|Are We Secure Yet?|
They tell us that desperate times call for desperate measures. Have you noticed that, as time goes on, the Bush Administration just seems to get more and more desperate? The years pass, and still we get nothing but vague warnings, Orange Alerts, and a whole lot of duct tape and plastic sheeting. We have wars against people that never really posed a threat, and alliances with countries that were trading nuclear weapons materials with nations known to sponsor terrorists. It seems like I get searched wherever I go, and now I'm hearing about new programs by the government to spy on people like you and me.
The call it security, so why don't I feel secure?
|Welcome to the Homeland!|
Welcome to the Homeland (formerly the United States of America), brought to you by George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, John Ashcroft, and the All-Star paranoia players! Along with this postcard, you get a lifetime supply of Orange Alerts, free of charge!
Send this postcard to show your loved ones how much you've enjoyed our national vacation from burdensome civil liberties, guaranteed free of evildoers. Get out the map and see where you live in this original map of the Homeland - if you're not a resident of one of the Traitor Territories, that is.
|Stop the Republican Sex Police!|
Just when we thought America could have a serious debate about the issues that really matter, the Republican smear-and-fear patrol turns the political debate into a tabloid smackdown, with lurid accusations and scapegoating, all based on the terror that Americans are actually having sex!
The time for sexual witch hunts is over. Show the Republican sex police that you know better. This November, take the courageous step of voting for a candidate who can talk about more than just what kind of sex you ought to be having. Vote Democrat, to end the national conservative peep show!
While we Support The Troops, they're dying by the hundreds. Meanwhile, the Commander in Chief won't attend a single funeral. On Election Day, let's support a new Commander in Chief. It's time to join the Patriots Against Bush!
|Employers: Without your help...|
This postcard offers a welcome counter-position to the National Guard and Reserve advertising campaign that seeks to remind employers that "Without your help, they might not move an inch". The "they" in these advertisements are tanks, fighter jets, and other massive weapons.
So let's think about that. Without our help, these weapons might not move an inch. Well, wouldn't that be nice for a change?
Show your friends and family that you've seen the Capitol building for real, and seen how politics really works.
This postcard features a vintage photograph of soldiers threateningly occupying the National Mall, and reads: Go home, civilian! This government is bought and paid for by military contractors!
