The First Step (UPDATED with EVEN EVEN MORE t-shirty goodness)

By  ·  March 26th, 2009   

As Joanie (only took me like 8 hours to remember to link this…schwa!) pointed out in email the other day, things have been kinda quiet around here.  I could say that the kids’ schoolwork is to blame, or tons of work to do in the garden – and those things would be true – but the real reason is I’m just fucking pissed off…and there’s only so much freedom I can give to the Pissed Off-ness before it takes the bit between its teeth and bell-towers up.

MLG and I are not what you’d call “radical.”  Not by a long stretch.  Our views are more centrist than strictly Republican, more libertarian (please note the small “l”) than conservative.  For instance, we don’t give a shit what kind of god you worship, or what you do with your own body, as long as it doesn’t harm anyone else.  Yes, the latter makes abortion a HUGE grey area, but only for US.  No one has the right to tell anyone else what they will do with their body, or something growing therein, because really, that’s just another form of slavery.

I say again, we are not radicals.  We don’t have a huge stockpile of food/water/supplies in the garage.  We have guns because we enjoy shooting, both for enjoyment and to be able to protect our family/property should the need arise, but we surely don’t sit in darkened rooms, cleaning our rifles and fuming over the current pack of Washington imbeciles pissing all over our Constitution.  But don’t think because we’re not radicals that we’re not angry.  And don’t think even for a second that we’re not paying attention.  Don’t think we haven’t noticed that everything done since Jan. 20 is nothing more than a power grab.  Yes, the economy has issues – all of which would have sorted themselves out had bad mortgages properly foreclosed, weak banks/investment houses been allowed to fail, etc. etc. ad nauseum – but the hysteria being whipped up by our elected officials can trace its origins directly to the effluvia from the posterior of a male bovine.  

We. Are. Being. Scammed. 

From the demonization of Wall Street, to the reverse-elitism directed at AIG, our Dear Leaders are using false information and manufactured fear to further erode our Constitutional rights, solidify their power bases, and ensure that future generations never question any of it.  Well, as the man says, we will not obey.  And now you’ve REALLY gone and screwed up…you’ve motivated us to actually ACT.

We will be attending the nearest Tax Day Tea Party on April 15th.  We’ll be expressing our displeasure, and most importantly, meeting those of like mind who are doing the same.  

Find a tea party in your area, get out and get heard.

MLG’s been brainstorming lately, resulting in our Simon Jester t-shirts (and our Simon Jester site, in progress).  We’re keeping the prices low because we’re more interested in getting the message out than turning a profit.

For the Firefly fans out there, those of us who want nothin’ to do with the gorram Alliance.

Yet more versions on the way.

UPDATE:  Here’s all the tshirt designs (black t-shirts coming in all stores, only done right now for “I Aim to Misbehave.”):

  13. Okay, I just ordered about $70 worth of stuff and will order more once more tee shirts are in black. Some other suggestions:

    “Non Serviam”/”I do not serve”

    “Common Sense”

    The Galt Oath: “I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.”

    Another Randism: “The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.”

    And another: “The truth is not for all men, but only for those who seek it.”

  14. Another Mal-ism:
    You think following the rules will buy you a nice life, even if the rules make you a slave.

    LOVE these and tho all other funds are set aside for things – I shall find some for these shirts, rest assured.

  15. To all who ordered stuff, linked to post, or offered suggestions and advice, thank you. Almost 4000 hits since it hit Instapundit just before lunch on Friday, and I’m not sure how many cross posts to livejournal, other blogs, bbs, forums, facebook, etc. Seriously, thanks folks.
