Poli Stew Cafe has just become my favorite online t-shirt store. You might have read about the threats to Poli Stew Cafe from the organization that will not be named (you know, the one with the words ‘move’, ‘on’ and ‘org’ in it’s name) when the folks put this t-shirt up for sale that had this on it:

In fact, they are upping the decency factor in this whole situation:
A FUND RAISER: We are pleased to introduce our latest designs, which highlight the General, and the importance of the First Amendment. This store will be open through January 17. After a lot of searching, we decided to direct all our profits from Cafe Press to go directly toThe National Military Family Association, Inc., which was named a 4-Star charity by Charity Navigator. (Please read a disclaimer on the sidebar).
The NMFA helps military families through stressful times. They help spouses and children with upcoming deployments, ease school transitions, assist people through the TriCare health system, learn money management skills, and best of all, through Operation Purple, they send children to summer camp. The goal of this fund raiser is to help send kids to camp. But we can’t do it without your help!
And they haven’t left the kids out of the fun either:
Four Star Military Kid Shirts and other cute things for the little ones.

What with the holidays coming up quicker than I care to think about, there are some great items to get a start on that shopping. You’re supporting a good organization too. And be sure to check out their blog.
Okay, sales pitch over. I just really like these folks’ attitude. And we could all use a little more decency around here, and that’s a fact. All the while exercising our First Amendment Rights ~ and that right belongs to all of us. Not just the organization that will not be named (you know, the one with the words ‘move’, ‘on’ and ‘org’ in it’s name.
