Finally…I can say some more 🙂 and that’s, “They’re here!”
16 august 2018
Finally got an actual sample on Tuesday the 14th that I could say “Go Ahead” to! (See above.) I’m guesstimating I’ll have the actual patches within 10 days from now. The price will revert back to $7.00 (shipped) each once that happens.
I have been itching to share this design since I first sketched it out, but now that it’s “In Production,” I finally can!
It sure would make a great license plate, as illustrated above (courtesy of Photoshop®) but how perfect will this simple 3” x 2” embroidered Velco-backed patch look on your Politically-Correct campus this Fall?
Or, if college life is wa-a-ay back in the rearview mirror, how ’bout just seeing it in the neighborhood, say on your (burly, martial-arts trained) older-kids’ backpacks for that always memorable First-Day-of-School? And talk about “Sparking a conversation” at the next family reunion or City Council meeting…
I think you can begin to picture the funtimes ahead.
Regardless of the venue, I’m certain you’ll find plenty of folks who’ll agree with the sentiment:
Can’t we just hang the lot of ‘em?
How to Order
All prices include USA shipping! (OnceI have the patches in hand and they’re ready-to-ship shipping, so for new orders the price is will go back to$7.00 each, shipped.) See the specially-priced “USA – EKG” HERE that’s noted in the order form below.
Of course the United States Space Force (much less it having an actual “Academy”) will never happen. Honestly I don’t care. The fact that on June 18th, 2018, President Trump dared declare such a thing it at all is what makes it so amazing and so logical (as Spock would say).
I came-of-age seeing “2001: A Space Odyssey” on a Cinerama screen in 1968 in West Hartford, Connecticut, so Trump certainly saw that same mind-blowing, feels like you are riding in an earth-to-moon shuttle flick, too, just that he was somewhere near his New York City home. And while I sat mesmerized in front of a modest black & white TV for the original Star Trek episodes as they aired, forced to practice Patience, week by week, Trump likely watched them all, too, only in brilliant color on a luxury-model TV. (I’ve gotta Thank God the only network my family’s aerial could pick up just “happened” to be NBC.)
Like me, as the 70’s became the 80’s, then the 90’s, Trump probably assumed the U.S. would get back to sending men to the moon until we had some sort of “colony” there, before at least making a vow to go beyond our moon. It was enormously disappointing when we didn’t, so I think this “Space Force” fiction is Trump’s attempt to inject life into and turn the 20th century’s version of The American Space-Conquering Dream into a 21st century Space-Warrior dream.
Decided to re-post the cartoon below, which I did a few years ago, what with the 4th of July right around the corner. Thinking about it caused the above shirt-design to pop into my brain. Available to order here. (Have I got you bobbing your head this way and that?)
And yes, I know, Comrade, I know: “thinking is dangerous.”
