Want to be paid $15 an hour? Get the skills for a job WORTH $15 an hour!

I'm at a complete, absolute loss as to people who work in unskilled low-paying jobs, with unskilled low-paying responsibilities, thinking they're entitled to earn $15 an hour. Excuse me?

Call me nuts, but it seems kind of obvious--and logical--that if you want to earn $15 an hour, you should acquire the skills needed to work in a job that's WORTH $15 an hour. You're not entitled to that flipping burgers. Any moron can flip burgers.

So stop the fucking complaining, and the ridiculous demands. Don't like being paid minimum wage flipping burgers? Then get your lazy ass to school and get an education. If you want to be paid more money, you have to have more skills. It's really not all that complicated. Shut up, stop complaining about your lot in life, better yourself, and THEN get paid more. Easy.

If you're as offended as I am by the ludicrous demands of these morons, say so with this Want to be paid $15 an hour? Get the skills for a job WORTH $15 an hour! merchandise. These are great for countering the morons' message at rallies and strikes. Here are some samples:

Veterans against Obama merchandise

Veterans against Obama merchandise

Please visit our 'Veterans against Obama' shop for 'Veterans against Obama' and 'Soldiers against Obama' merchandise. Many items are priced lower in our CafePress shop than they are in the CafePress marketplace!

If you're a veteran or, like me, the spouse of a veteran, and you're anti-Obama, welcome to the club! As a lifelong Democrat it's hard for me to take a stand against the Democratic presidential candidate, but as a patriotic American I simply cannot support Barack Hussein Obama.

It all started for me back in 2008, when the qualified Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton, was robbed of her rightful place as the party's nominee. I had supported her, proudly and loudly!, because I knew that another Clinton presidency would be a GOOD thing for this country. She is smart, informed, articulate, and caring. Obama, on the other hand, is none of those things. So once Howard Dean, the Democratic National Committee, and various other morons orchestrated Obama's ascension to the throne, I basically said "fuck you!" and voted for John McCain. I did that not only because I despised Obama and felt he was unqualified to be president, but also because I could vote for McCain with a clear conscience. He's actually quite moderate for a Republican, and he's a war hero, so it was an easy call.

Well, here we sit four years later and I'm as adamantly anti-Obama now as I was in 2008. I cannot imagine how any veteran in their right mind can support him.

I'm pleased to say that our top-selling merchandise right now--by far--consists of our two Veterans against Obama designs. There's our original version and our newer version; the latter is available on many more products. You'll find yard signs, bumper stickers, car magnets, t-shirts and lots of other merchandise to spread the word that you're a veteran against Obama!

Vote YES on California Proposition 37

Yes on 37 merchandise

Looking for Yes on 37 merchandise? Please visit our Yes on Proposition 37 CafePress shop for yard signs, bumper stickers, t-shirts and more.

Here in California, we're used to leading the nation when it comes to cutting edge laws that protect people. A very important issue that will be on November's ballot is Proposition 37. Its basic purpose is very simple: require manufacturers to label food products containing GMO (genetically modified organisms). From Wikipedia's page on prop 37:

The long-form summary for Proposition 37 says:

* Requires labeling on raw or processed food offered for sale to consumers if made from plants or animals with genetic material changed in specified ways.

* Prohibits labeling or advertising such food, or other processed food, as “natural.”

* Exempts foods that are: certified organic; unintentionally produced with genetically engineered material; made from animals fed or injected with genetically engineered material but not genetically engineered themselves; processed with or containing only small amounts of genetically engineered ingredients; administered for treatment of medical conditions; sold for immediate consumption such as in a restaurant; or alcoholic beverages.

So why do some people oppose prop 37? Good question! In my [not terribly humble] opinion, it seems that the only folks who oppose it have something to hide. In other words, they're adding GMO to their food products and don't want to say so. They're afraid that if consumers can plainly see that information on the labels, they'll buy some other brand that doesn't contain that crap.

Why should we care about GMO? Why should we want disclosure on labels when a product contains GMO? Because GMO are bad things with far-reaching consequences.

Are you aware that bees are disappearing at alarming rates? Well, they are, and their disappearance has been tied to crops containing GMO. Do a little research on "colony collapse disorder" to learn more about how this works.

Here's a very brief summary of one aspect of this issue, from California Right to Know:

Example: Genetically Modified corn has been engineered in a laboratory to produce pesticides in its own tissue. GMO corn is regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency as an Insecticide, but is sold unlabeled. [EPA Pesticides]. Walmart is now selling Monsanto's sweet corn that has been genetically engineered to contain an insecticide, but consumers don't know because it's not labeled.

Please join me in voting Yes on 37, because Californians want to know what's in our food. Show your support of proposition 37 with bumper stickers, yard signs, t-shirts and more from our Yes on Proposition 37 CafePress shop.

My fantastic vegan fajitas

So many people are under the MISconception that vegan and/or vegetarian food is boring, dull, unsatisfying, tasteless, bland...well, you get the idea. All I can say to that is: NONSENSE! Anyone who thinks of vegan/vegetarian food that way has obviously never tasted good veg*n food.

Tonight I made some of my crazy delicious vegan fajitas. They're extremely easy to make, and they're so good that folks who eat dead animals will gobble these down--and usually ask for seconds.

Vegan/vegetarian merchandise

Here's my basic recipe, which can be adapted according to personal taste. My motto is "you can never have too many onions!", so I'll let you decide how much is right for you. For some of the ingredients, I've listed the specific brands that I prefer, but you can certainly use other brands/styles. I really encourage you to use "homestyle" tortillas, though, because they add a much nicer dimension to the fajitas than plain old tortillas do.

The following is roughly for 4 people:

. 2-4 large onions, julienned
. 1-2 any combination of red/green/yellow bell peppers, julienned
. 2-4 avocados, sliced
. 1 package Morningstar Farms Meal Starters Grillers Recipe Crumbles (Boca Crumbles are good, too)

. Lawry's Baja Chipotle Marinade

. Mission Homestyle Flour Tortillas

. Olive oil, extra virgin
. Lemon juice, preferably fresh
. Salt
. Pepper

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Add the onions and bell peppers.

Add some lemon juice--depending on quantity of onions/peppers, approximately 2-3 tablespoons

Add some of the Baja Chipotle Marinade--taste it first so you'll know how spicy it is.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Saute the onions/peppers until they're as cooked as you prefer; they really need to be caramelized and/or charred a bit for best flavor in this dish.

When the onion/pepper mixture is done, scoop it out and set aside.

In the same skillet (without emptying or rinsing it), pour in the Crumbles; stir frequently and cook thoroughly.

Place 4-8 tortillas on a plate, then cover with another plate turned upside down; heat in the microwave for 30-45 seconds (don't cook them too long or they'll get TOUGH and HARD!; just cook them long enough to warm them up a bit).

For each fajita, spoon and spread some of the crumbles, some of the onions and peppers, and some avocado slices, placing the filling in the center of the tortilla,

then fold over both sides of the tortilla to make the finished product.

NOTE: These can be very messy to eat with your hands! You may prefer to use a knife and fork.

Animal lover since birth. Vegan/vegetarian since [your year]

Animal lover since birth. Vegetarian since [your year], pro-vegetarian merchandiseIf you're looking for a really unique gift for a vegan or vegetarian, we're proud to offer our collection of Animal lover since birth. Vegetarian since [year] and Animal lover since birth. Vegan since [year] merchandise.

Animal lover since birth. Vegan since [your year], pro-vegan merchandiseWe have a complete line of merchandise for every year dating back to 1970. Our products include a huge selection of shirts, plus bumper stickers, mugs, buttons and magnets, jewelry, kids' clothes and much more.

Speaking as a longtime vegetarian, I can say with reasonable certainty that most of us who've chosen not to participate in the cruelty of the meat industry are proud of that fact. I like letting people know that I've been vegetarian since 1988. When someone sees me in my Animal lover since birth. Vegetarian since 1988 t-shirt, it's very common for them to strike up a conversation to ask me how and why I went veg in the first place. This is always a great opportunity to tell people about the atrocities committed against animals--sentient beings--in the meat industry and on factory farms.

So if your holiday shopping this year includes wanting to get something special and meaningful for the vegan/vegetarian(s) in your life, please have a look!

Here are a few samples; click on any image to see all years with that design:
