Blogs 4 Brownback

Techno-Query

I’m hoping to set up a t-shirt catalogue on the website.  Does anyone have any advice on how to do so?  Any decent, patriotic slogans to suggest? 

Any useful advice would be much appreciated.   Someone’s already mentioned CafePress to me, but I’m a bit suspicious of it.

 Thank you in advance.

  2. Ask a godless liberal scientist, they’re good at this sort of thing.

  3. Ha. Good to see the liberals all twisted up over Miers not testifying. They know we are in charge now.

  4. Why not bumper stickers? You know the “My other car is a Rolls-Royce” or whatever, why not something like “My Other President is Jesus” or something to that effect?

  5. How about “Charge of the Light Brigade Reloaded – Brownback´s Campaign”? Too blocky, I guess.

  6. Not bad, Adam. Obviously “Heliocentrism Is An Athiest Doctrine” on the front and “The Son is the Center of my Universe” on the back would be a popular shirt. We’d have to squeeze our web address on there somewhere. It would be a great gift and no doubt a collector’s item.

  7. I absolutely refuse to believe that this isn’t a parody site. Well done!

  8. I absolutely refuse to believe you actually use that thing between your ears. But if you enjoy the site and will consider supporting Sam Brownback, welcome aboard.

  9. Psycheout, by your very definition, using the “thing between your ears” is an atheist doctrine and is the deepest heresy.

  10. The more I think about it, the more I think you may have inavdertently written the best tee-shirt slogan:

    “Terri Schiavo’s Brother Joins Sam Brownback.”

  11. F___ tha lettuce!

    What about a symbolic shirt. A shirt with a brown back? A brown shirt? Maybe the front should be black?

  12. I’m not so sure that “F___ tha lettuce!” is the message we’re trying to send, Pinko. Please refrain from commenting while intoxicated. It frightens the children. This is a family website, after all.

    Too many syllables for the target audience.

  15. Well, I guess “Madness? This is Brownbaaaack!” would be a bit too much of a play on a movie slogan that has already been skitted in almost any way possible.

    So, how about “Huertgen Forest reeinacted – Brownback´s Campaign”?

  16. “Too many syllables for the target audience.”

    It has to fit legibly on a t-shirt, Skeptic. It can’t state Brownback’s entire campaign platform. And there’s no need to get smart about syllables. I can read just as many of them as you can.

    I don’t get the reference. Are you talking about the Teutoburgian forest? The Varian disaster?

  18. Huertgen Forest, autumn and winter 1944. Some idiots decided to stage a major offense throught the forest despite the terrain cancelling all the advantages of the US in numbers, air superiority and the like while running against the Siegfried Line and 3 Geramn veteran divisions.

    The result: 50.000 dead GI´s, a US Infantry Division, the 66th Keystone renamed into “Bloody Bucket Division”, and the target bridges getting flooded apart right in front off the US units as Wehrmacht pioneers blow a dam. The whole thing can only be called a military disaster. Even meaner was the impact on morale and health, with more GI being declared as not being able to fight due to flu, frozen feet and shellshock than actually killed.

    It also helped the Wehrmacht to defend the Siegfried Line with a rather small number of troops, helping them to prepare for the Ardennes offensive.

  19. Ok, how about “Kill the infidels!”

  21. “It also helped the Wehrmacht to defend the Siegfried Line with a rather small number of troops, helping them to prepare for the Ardennes offensive.”

    Which squandered their last reserves and cost them the war. So who was stupider? The Americans, for attacking and hurting themselves a little, or Hitler and his toady generals, for believing that this minor hurt had crushed American morale and made the Ardennes Offensive feasible?

    God IS great, Skeptic.

  25. “God IS great, Skeptic.”

    Sisy, I hope you know that “kill the infidels” and “God is great” are two slogans often used by Islamic terrorists.

    That offensive would have happenned anyway. (It had already been planned and the preparations were already underway.) The failure of the US Army in what they soon called “the death factory” only made it possible for the offensive to get further and cause more damage to US troops.

  27. Well, I for one am grateful for the allied troops liberating my country in 1945, but you would have had your asses kicked by Germany if it wasn’t for the Russian cannonfodder at the Eastern front taking some pressure of you.

  28. By the way, my country was liberated by the Canadians.

  29. @Sceptic: Some? Now that´s an understatement! Almost 80% of the german troops were committed to fight the advancing Red Army?

    Some people claim the invasion of Normandy to be the biggest battle of all times. The truth is: Stalingrad, Kursk, Operation Bagration, just to name a few, were battles that dwarf Normandy.

  30. “Brownback’s the Answer”

    “Say no to RINOs, Vote Brownback”

    “Brownback: the only Rational Choice”

    “Choose Life, Choose Brownback”

  31. Oh, I´ve got the fitting one:
    Sam Brownback – The best jokes write themselves.

  32. Let’s see:

    “Brownback: For the Children”

    “The Name Right After The Name Above All Others”

    But still the best is, a graphic of Sam’s beaming smile above the slogan:
    “My Other President is Jesus!” (hattip to Adam Nelson — bravo!)

  33. How about “Saving Babies and Killing Treefrogs since 1956!”

    The WW2 theme seems to have spilled here as well. And while I agree that Kursk, Stalingrad etc. were more fierce, bloody, costly, and more involved wars, Normandy was the largets invasion of all time all at once. However, Stalingrad is perhaps the “greatest” battle of all time.

    In that battle alone, combined casualties was more than 1.5 million (!!), with the Germans taking losses of over 850 000 troops in seven months. For those of you who don’t know the statistics, that is far more than the combined Allied causalties in the entire war. Simply put, the Russians broke the Germans’ back. It is considered the turning point of the war by EVERY historian.

    I find it funny how much importance you guys put on America’s role in WW2, seeing yourselves as the great heroes of the war. Well, vast rampant egotism was always your strong suit.

  34. Aye, Adam, and Kursk was simply the biggest tank battle in human history. On July 12th 1943, the “black day in July” the little village of Prochorovka, at the southern part of the Kursk salient saw two massive formations, the 2nd SS Panzer Corps and the russian 5th Guards tank army crash into each other. It´s barely imaginable what happenned back there. Almost 1200 (!) tanks going head to head in an area of about 5 square miles.

    See http://www.germanwarmachine.com/waffenss/1943/kursk.htm for the details.

    And Stalingrad had the “record” of being the most costly in terms of human lives. Most historical sources are placing the death toll at about over 1.8 million.

  35. Why are you talking about Kursk? This is a t-shirt question.
