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? [...]

Attempt To Plug Oil Spill In Timor Sea Fails

As politicians continue to push for expanded offshore drilling in the waters of the United States of America, we need to look at the disasters that are taking place elsewhere in the world, and ask ourselves whether we want to see the same news coming from our own beaches. [...]

Congratulate Cadbury on Partially Moving to Fair Trade Chocolate

Adrienne Fitch-Frankel of Global Exchange details the conditions still present in cocoa fields:

The slave trade in the West African cocoa fields, which regularly produces in the neighborhood of 70% of the world’s cocoa, led to public outrage after a series of media reports nearly a decade ago revealed the extent of abusive child labor [...]

Climate Change's Armyworms

It’s too early to say what’s caused the current armyworm outbreak, but what is known is that dramatic changes in habitat, such as those that accompany climate change, often create such unusual population surges. [...]

Thomas Muthee Flaccid Flim Flam: He Called for Mama Jane’s Death as Witch, But She’s Still There

You may ask how African pastor Thomas Muthee ended up in Wasilla, Alaska to lay hands on Sarah Palin’s head and pray for Palin to be elected Governor as part of a new plan for American theocracy. The answer lies in a video and in testimonials extolling Muthee’s supernatural power as a witch-hunter. In the [...]
