If you don't like my politics and my viewpoints, that's okay because this is still America. But be warned now, I am going to spend many posts, for the forseeable future, highlighting RESISTANCE apparel. I am going to be showing off IMPEACHMENT t-shirts. I am going to do my bit to design items that call out to the world that there are millions of us who did NOT vote for the embarrassment that is now in the White House.
If you do like my politics and my viewpoints, thank you. Please bookmark my page!

Should you be so inclined, you could do a lot worse than to buy a few of these. They'll be useful now, thru the election, and after the election. They will be a great memento of the debacle that is Election 2016. I don't know about Amazon's return policy on t-shirts, but it's probably pretty....ahem...liberal.
Have fun, and don't forget to vote!

Ah, the end of summer, the lull before the holidays...it's quiet, there's nothing on the immediate horizon...wait a minute! There, on the horizon! A ship! A pirate ship! With a Jolly Roger! ARRRGGGHHH! It's INTERNATIONAL TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY, just a few weeks away! Time to brush up on your piratespeak, get yourself a pirate t-shirt and be prepared for anything!
The definitive book on how to talk like a pirate has to be The Pirate Primer: Mastering the Language of Swashbucklers & Rogues
It's an awesome book, well researched and full of colorful history as well as every pirate word, phrase, utterance, oath, pirate curse, insult, cuss word and nautical term your little black heart could desire. Everything from "I'm a lewdly yapping cur..." to "souse me for a gurnet" is chronicled, along with source information. It's a great read, or I'm a salted codfish!
See more pirate tshirts at Amazon!

Mother's Day is coming up again! Mother's Day 2016 will be celebrated on Sunday, May 8. I used to work in a steakhouse, and Mother's Day was one of the busiest days of the year. We always put on extra staff, and ordered extra steak, and sure enough the moms and their families would flood in!
And the grandmas too. Oh, the lovely grandmas! I remember pink lace and corsages and smiling faces. Mothers sometimes looked stressed because, after all, even on Mother's Day you don't get to stop changing diapers, wiping mouths, teaching table manners, and racing arounda after unruly 2-year olds. But grandmas...they're just happy to be around the kids and grandkids.
But back to mom. I come from a big family, so it was always a challenge to buy something unique. One year I bought her some cheap perfume (I was 8, what did I know?) because it had a picture of a horse on the label and I knew she liked horses. She never wore it, but did display the bottle prominently on her dresser for a few weeks. Moms are like that. (I shudder today to think what a cologne that had a horse on the label might smell like!)
I'm lucky that my mom is still around and healthy. I know a lot of people who've lost their moms way too soon. So if your mom, grandma, mother in law, or great grandma is around, I have one word of advice: spoil. Spoil her rotten! She deserves it!
Here are some fun, funny, cute and weird (circus??) tshirts that would make great gifts for your mom. You can click on any of the titles to be taken directly to a page where you can purchase. But hurry, remember that with online sales it can take from several days to a couple of weeks to receive your item.
And Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!

These kinds of truly spontaneous moments are so rare in politics, so unique amidst the dull rhetoric and sound bytes of the season, that they become iconic. The fact that the bird happened to alight in Portland of all places gave the incident a feeling of serendipity at the least, or providence at the most. Who doesn't recall the Portlandia tv show, and its "put a bird on it" episode?
While the Portlandia bird appears to be a Northern Cardinal (even though there are no Northern Cardinals in Oregon), the little fella that made an appearance on Sanders' podium was a house finch. Never mind, it's the thought that counts, right?
Enter the t-shirt designers! So many fun, cute and silly tshirts out there! We've collected our five favs. You can click the titles of any of them to go and buy them. Fun to wear all summer, and a great commemorative item to save for the future.

Years ago, a number of prominent psychologists put forth a theory that autism was caused by "Refrigerator Mother Syndrome", which is exactly as it sounds: a completely ludicrous and now utterly discredited theory that blamed autism on parents (especially mothers) who lacked maternal warmth. Bruno Bettelheim hypothesized that improper breastfeeding and other cold and distant behaviors that deprived the children of proper bonding. How awful must it have been to be a mother (or father) of an autistic child and to be told that your subconscious rejection was responsible! And this theory persisted until as recently as the 1960s.
Today, thank goodness, we know better. And science is learning more and more about the true nature of autism. We know that there is probably not one particular factor or cause, but rather a variety of genetic factors. We know that vaccines are probably not a factor. We know that only a lot more research will lead us to discover the true causes and possible cures for this ailment.
April is a great time to buy an Autism Awareness t-shirt to spread the word and promote awareness.

Donald Drumpf. Doesn't have quite the same ring of wealth and power as Donald Trump, does it? I mean, President Drumpf? Not bloody likely. Drumpf Towers? Nah. Drumpf Casino? I wouldn't spend a dime there. So the Donald can thank his lucky stars that his grandfather, Frederick Drumpf, started calling himself Frederick Trump. It's not known, according to the website Bustle, "... if he ever changed his name officially. Some have speculated that he didn’t want to be known as “Drumpf” because of prevailing prejudice against Germans (which would heighten, of course, during World War I)."
Still, the name Drumpf has spawned all kinds of spoofs and memes on the Internet, including more than one hashtag on Twitter. #makedonalddrumpfagain trended for days, and there's a website where you can get a "drumpfinator" extension for Chrome that changes the word Trump to the word Drumpf on every page you view.
Cue the tshirts!
