Is America Ready (Really?) for a Black President?

yes we canOn November 4, 2008, America made great strides as a nation and voted its first minority President into office by electing Barack Obama. A huge achievement for the United States, especially since it was only in 1865 that blacks were allowed their own freedom to live. That was nearly 150 years ago, and yes, plenty has changed. America has gone through slavery, racial segregation, assasinations and now, have they overcome the greatest barrier of all? With Barack Obama's election as President, does this end all types of racism?

As millions chanted "yes we can" at the thought of the idea, the idea came closer and closer to reality. And it happened. Now with the onset near of 1.20.09, Barack's inaugaration day, can we now say that America is ready for a black President, or are we still not ready?

If Obama's Presidency turns into another downturn for the U.S. economy, or a failed war, or a terrorist attack, will we quickly turn back to the race card as a reason for the failure? Obama's Presidency in itself is a huge success for progression, but his success as a President is a must for further progression for minorities across the country.

5 Ways to Use Obama Sweatshirts

Obama sweatshirtObama sweatshirts, as it turns out, may have more uses than you have ever thought! People are using these warm hoodies and Obama zippered jackets for more than just staying warm nowadays! Here's a few of the things you can do with them...

1. Give them to the dedicated Republican you know. Nothing will make them happier.
2. Give them to the Obama lover you know. It will most likely wind up as a shrine right on top of their mantle. They won't even bring themselves to wear it.
3. Nothing attracts a college girl's attention more than an Obama sweatshirt. Your new sweatshirt tells them that you reek of opinionated, intelligent politics.
4. Collect them all! There's plenty of Obama sweatshirts to choose from in our store. They're like stamps, only you can wear them.
5. Wear one on your next trip to Alaska. Armed with your bullet proof vest, it's a great way to get those hard-to-find Palinfoots (aka Palinsquatch) out of the deep forests for a rare snapshot.

Obama: Will There Be a Change?

Obama change t-shirtIt's almost inaugaration time, and there's excitement in the air (besides the little Blagojevich hurdle they might be dealing with for a minute)! You can feel it change that Obama will be bringing to the table, or a Carter-like flopping administration that will make our economy suffer even worse?

It couldn't be too much worse than the previous eight years, could it? A terrorist attack, a blundered recovery of a major national hurricane crisis, a long war or two, sharply rising home foreclosures...I think we're all looking forward to see how different the next President will handle this mess in 2009!

Whether you're Republican or Democrat, let's all be hopeful and wish for some change in our current economic situation next year! Whether it's good or bad, Obama will bring change, that much is for sure.

What's New: Obama Logo Shirts, Palin 2012 Merchandise

What's hot this holiday season in SideSplitters? It seems Obama sweatshirts are all the rage, as well as Palin 2012 merchandise. People are already hoping for a change before Obama even gets into office!

Some want Obama out...those would be the Palin 2012 enthusiasts. And who is to say that the Republicans sort of don't have some sort of justification to feel this way. After 8 years of one of the least favorite Presidents ever, McCain didn't stand much of a chance coming from the same party. Maybe Sarah Palin would do a great job, who knows? Until then, Republicans can only dream of a 2012 victory for (maybe?) Presidential hopeful Sarah Palin.

style="float: left; alt="obama shirts">Aside from that, let's celebrate our new President! Barack Obama is about to take office in only a month. Are you prepared for 1.20.09? It's a day that will forever go down in history for so many reasons...our nation's first minority President, the end of the 8 year Bush "tyranny" as many call it, and the beginning of a new era. Here's to Obama's new Presidency: good luck, you're going to need it!
