Epidemic Of Ebola Panic Strikes More Victims in the USA

Name(required) Email(required) Website Comment(required)

America is now two weeks into the outbreak of Ebola panic, and still, the airborne transmission of hyperbole spreads, mutating into increasingly absurd forms. Americans are acting as if the entire body of their nation is under threat, and they’re beginning to shut down peripheral systems in [...]

Ebola Ninnies: Names Of The Members Of Congress Who Are Encouraging Panic

There has yet to be even one case of human transmission of the Ebola virus in the United States. People within the borders of the United States are already extremely safe, very well-protected from the spread of Ebola. Screening for Ebola is already taking place at ports of entry to our country, and medical teams [...]

Americans’ Ebola Panic Reveals Afrophobia with No Sense of Scale

This morning, J. Clifford reports that people have called for the cancellation of flights from West Africa in order to stop Ebola, but refuse to take far simpler steps that would save many more lives. J. Clifford’s point is valid, but there are even more irrational reactions to Ebola surfacing in America.

Yesterday, someone at [...]

Holy Water Ethics

A Nigerian preacher named Temitope Joshua has sent thousands of bottles of holy water to Sierra Leone as cures for the deadly ebola virus sweeping through that country.

Is this donation:

1. A great idea, as the holy water can’t do any harm

2. A terrible idea, given that holy water has never been shown [...]

Irregular Times Donations, April 2012: Planned Parenthood and Village Enterprise

We the writers for Irregular Times sell political shirts for three reasons:

1. To pay for the hosting and logistical costs associated with keeping Irregular Times up and running. 2. To help spread messages that we believe in. 3. To help change the world just a little bit.

#3 may seem odd to you; how [...]

Irregular Times Donation: Humanist Crisis Response Horn of Africa Project

We sell American-made political shirts to keep Irregular Times going because shirts made in other countries are notorious for noxious sweatshop labor conditions, not because we’re xenophobes. We believe strongly that money should flow to parts of the world where people are living in desperate poverty, and so for every shirt we sell we pledge [...]

Shirt Sale Donations: Village Enterprise Fund and the ACLU

When we started selling shirts to help cover the costs of running the Irregular Times website, we decided to print only on shirts that are made in the USA because, despite all the attempts to erode worker rights, American textile workers still have better wages, more rights and more workplace protections than workers in overseas [...]

Political and International Donations: Ballot Access News and the Village Enterprise Fund

Every time someone buys one of our sweatshop-free liberal t-shirts through Skreened, we set aside two dollars from the profits: one dollar for donation to a domestic political cause and another dollar for donation to an overseas charitable effort.

Our latest domestic political donation goes to Ballot Access News, an online and on-paper newsletter by [...]

Another International Microgrant to the Village Enterprise Fund

Every time we sell a sweatshop-free made in the USA t-shirt through Skreened, we pledge to donate a dollar toward the cause of sustainable international development. Sadly, a number of supposedly “friendly” t-shirt brands made in third world countries turn out to actually be exploiting third world workers, and that’s why we source our shirts [...]

Private Prayer Breakfast Led By International Extremists

Whatever Barack Obama Obama’s intentions, he is providing the extremist International Foundation with the implicit support of the White House by attending the National Prayer Breakfast this morning. [...]

Shell Oil Gains New Drilling In Alaska As It Evades Cleanup In Africa

The United Nations Environmental Program is being forced to pick up the bill for the mess left behind by Shell Oil’s profiteering in Nigeria. Will the company try to do the same when its new Alaskan drilling operations spill oil into Arctic waters? [...]
