i love this shirt. $5
this is incredible!! $5!!
Great anti animal skin message 'no blind fur kil'
Its about time this cause was championed on threadless.
I LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
$5... would buy!
man, hella sweet idea ... too bad its an anti-war thing.
OMG another anti war shirt! if you drive a car you have no right to be preachy about oil
So orginal, I've only heard that a million times.
No oil for pacifists.
nice design, but i wouldnt buy a "anti war"ish shirt, especially not from threadless
GAH!!!!! THIS MAKES ME WANT TO PULL MY HAIR OUT.
Gee, this dumb liberalisim. Bush is doing the best he can, and I doubt anyone else in his shoes could handel the situation any better.
If the war was for oil then why are we still paying 2.50 a gallon. Why havent oil prices droped?
Were not hurting so bad that we would need it from there anyway. And if the war was for oil. We'd know, Iraqies would tell us.
Catalist - The fact that you only pay $2.50 for gas shows that your prices ARE low; I pay $2.95 - $3.00 a gallon.
and catalist, yeah bush is doing the best he can, but umm... lets think how he got there, o yeah, he put himself in the shithole. you really have no idea what you are talking about. bush is doing TONS of illegal stuff all over the place and doing boneheaded moves everywhere too. i dont even want to go into it
This isn't meant to knock at Bush in any way. We are fighting a war over people who have their hands dirty in the oil business. I think the fact that Bush owns some oil companies is a conflict of interest don't you?
The prices aren't dropping because they are using the war to drive the need to developed better technology when it comes to gas. The sad thing is if you do some REAL research, you will find the price per mile of a hybrid car is actually more than the price of a hummer. Why you ask? Because the hybrid costs way more to develop and build.
Shirtflirt has a lot of knowledge on the subject.
small thing... you would just want to solve, because buying a vowel costs money per letter. Sorry just a side note. As for the whole anti-war/bush thing. No one here is going to have their minds changed over a threadless comment but I agree this war is over oil. We use the most oil in the world and yet we have it the cheapest, compared to other countries where it is atleast 50 cents more a gallon, china is an up and commer and expects to triple its consumption in only a couple years time, so securing oil would be a main priority, its been proven there were no weapons of mass destruction, we went to war without the UN's consent... lasty any other fuel alternative so far is no better than gasoline, hybrid is the only one that does any good... electricity and hydrogen take just as much if not more oil to create this alternative than to actually power a car. Solar energy and wind are the only alternative that rivals the cleanliness of hydrogen and will give you a nearly cheap power over time. But you do still have to create those objects using oil. I say we spend all our time developing electric cars charged by solar panel or wind powered refueling stations... but that would require our countries leader to not be making money off of our main resource... which the country we conveniently just attacked has the reported largest oil supply in the world.
oh yeah sorry... 5$
Pacifists should be shot!
and so should anyone that whines:
"oh no another anti-war shirt!, I don't wear anti-war shirts, t-shirts aren't supposed to have a message blah blah blah"
T-shirts have ALWAYS been about delivering a message.. go read some books!
the comment 2 comments above was a joke btw... would make a great tee don't you think. I'm a pacifist and i'd love to ssport the irony.
That saying is for too cliche and overused. Let's get on with life, not dread on this war.
who cares if the saying has been used before. Why reinvent the wheel? It says exactly what it needs to say. Don't hate, appreciate.
I don't drive a car and I love this t-shirt $5
Fuck you hippie
I really like this. 5.
You white folks is funny :P
Anyway, it is a cute shirt, even though I sort of don't care about politics.
Being a vet of this war I find this sub to be a disservice to the people that serve to keep you free. I mean no disrespect, your design is pretty good, but the content is very bad. mindtrance said "Dont hate, appriciate."- apply this while thinking about the soldiers that you are bashing.
i wish people knew hom much humanitarian work we do...im not going to give it a zero or anything.... like I said, it was still a good design, keep on with the good art but dont get all political
I can agrue both sides of the war to be honest, I'm very open minded. I appreciate everything you do Stiffy, honestly. I have family and friends in the war myself.
I just think there are some things in the background driving our intentions that shouldn't be.
I know friends who came back and told the same thing you just did, about the kids you gave food to, and the families that are happy we are there. That warms my heart. It's not meant to bash soliders.
It's meant to say, there are people dying over there, and I hope they are dying to protect our freedom, and free others, not because a president with ties in the oil industry wants to drive up his worth in the process.
Again, I appreciate all your service to our country my friend :)
Debates suck. Let's talk about the shirt instead of Dick and Bush, eh?
I like how the American flag is hidden in the "unused" squares. Took me a sec to see it. And my first thought was "No blind for.... what?" But I get it now, and I think it's clever.
I give it a 5, but no $ because I'm not one for wearing an American flag on my shirt.
decent shirt, and you mean well with the message i guess (which is to say, you're on my side of the argument) but wouldnt buy it for two reasons.
1. as i've elaborated on almost every other political t-shirt's comment section, america needs to learn how to compromise, because the compromise is the foundation that this country was built on... and wearing a shirt that is so blatantly against one whole half of the country isn't really helping anything. i won't let my hatred for a political party get in the way of my love for my country.
2. the phrase "no blood for oil" is thrown around too much by people who don't really educate themselves on what is really happening. not to say you aren't an upright educated and well-informed citizen, but i don't want to be mistaken for someone who isn't. on top of that, i don't want to be labeled a hippy.
the fact of the matter is, because of polarization like this, there will never be a shirt printed on threadless more political than the flat house... and that's not even really a political shirt.
Point well taken. I'll have to put some energy into a shirt that would please all then. Not an Anti-war, but a pro peace.
the design is pretty good. But...
mindtrap, I don't like the fact that you have commented on your own work and defended yourself in the comments. The shirt should stand on it's own without all this debate.
There's also something that bothers me about the whole Wheel of Fortune thing being used. I mean, to me, Wheel of Fortune is such a cheezy pop culture reference, and this is supposed to be some pseudo-intellectual "I have an opinion and I am going to force it on you with my shirt" type of thing. I think that Wheel of Fortune kind of blows the credibility of that, maybe that's just my opinion.
That being said, I do basically agree with the message. Take what you will from this....
Thank you for using tact in your reply Mindtrance. My faith in this site has been restored once more. I have seen many respectful comments ever since I wrote mine. There hasnt been as many ignorant remarks as usual. Emokiss and I decided yesterday that even though we take different stances we still need to respect eachothers opinion and sometimes just agree to disagree. Americans need to stop with its partisan politics. Just because one is a democrat doesnt mean that they should bash every idea or opinion that a Republican has, and likewise. We all need to work towards being a united country that works together and compromises to find whats best for the our people as a whole. Stop looking for conspiracies and start looking for solutions. I hate the far left and the far right. Alot of Dems think that the Right is so wrong.... I'll admit that the Republicans are wrong on some issues, but this doesnt mean that the Democrats are right either. If we keep attacking our own brothers and sisters like this, then this country and our freedoms wont be worth fighting for.
Ive told someone on here before that everyday I go to CNN's Casualties of War page to see what fellow troops have made the ultimate sacrifice. It hurts like hell but I cant look away. The sooner that we put aside our pride the sooner the rest of us come home. I like the idea for a pro peace shirt. Lets Unite our Divided States. We are in this together.
(sweet f'n novel, now we can get back to talking about designs.... and Nate's foot fetish)
I'm not defending anything, as a human being with morals I don't think it's right to let a soldier let alone anyone else be upset by something I did or said. It's called Tact.
That being said, I tend to not look at Democrat vs Republican. I just look at the issues. I'm an independent for that very reason. I don't want to be put into a box by being forced to associate with either viewpoint.
The sole reason for the wheel of fortone reference is to say "no blood for oil" in a clever way by buying the vowel. Nothing more, Nothing less.
I like it alot, although i agree with many people that the slogan 'no blood for oil' is pretty lame and overused. Howerver, that's is partially what makes it so effective here, since the message isn't spelled out, you need a well-known, if overused one so people can fill in the blanks.
Bottom line: 5

No oil for pacifists.
Bush's ear has more courage than all of the Liberals combined.
and by courage you mean wax? :)
Love the design. Even tho it turned this string into a fighting match. haha
when i was little, i wanted to be vanna white when i grew up.
i like this shirt.
psst... "i'm not against the soldiers, i'm against the war."
a good message, i guess. good execution- i really really like the soldiers and flag behind the letters.
for everybody's who's forcing his or her opinions on others:
just accept other peoples' ideas about the war- no need to get so riled up about it.
p.s. i'm a pacifist- so shoot me.
p.p.s. you're supposed to comment on the SHIRT, not the WAR.
p.p.p. i pay $3 per gallon.
mindtrance, thanks for the wonderful design... and to you and Stiffy42j, thank you both for being wonderful people. I'm not even going to start any sort of comenting on the subject matter other than saying I 1) agree w/ both of you and 2) feel really warm reading your correspondence.
man i feel lame. i thought it said "no blind fur kil" at first. the title totally flew past me.
it's okay... that's why it's called I'd like to buy a vowel. One vowel solves the entire puzzle.
whoo! finally a shirt thats taken more flak than one of mine!!!
I personally like the design. Its very well done and I would proudly wear it. While the "No blood for oil" line is getting a bit cliche, this is just different enough that it works. Great work.
As for the "Patriots" who have suggested that pacifists not have cars, I offer this simple question:
Would you buy a more expensive car if it would save someone's life?
because some people choose to serve in the armed forces means other people can't have an opinion on American Foreign policy? i don't see anything here that is denegrating to service men and women.
damn fine work
