9. Don't let Politics spoil your Summer

There’s enough going on in the world to dampen the mood of the staunchest optimists. But let us remember that it’s summertime, the best season to take a vacation from the stress of socio-political matters over which we have little or no control. Here are a few reasons to take a deep breath and focus on the simple pleasures of life for a while.

Same S***, Different Election

As the old adage goes, "there's nothing new under the sun," and that's especially applicable to the political world. Andrew Jackson was born nine years before the birth of the United States, and he once said, “I weep for the liberty of my country when I see at this early day of its successful experiment that corruption has been imputed to many members of the House of Representatives, and the rights of the people have been bartered for promises of office.” Sound familiar? The path we’re on is as well worn as the deepest wagon-wheel ruts on the Oregon Trail. This summer, focus on the wonder and rhythm of your journey, and ignore the ruts.

Mark Twain on Congressmen

"Use your imagination!"

Remember when your Mom or Dad would tell you to go play outside and to "use your imagination"? Our potential in this world is limited only by our ability to visualize better outcomes. When Pablo Picasso created outlandish paintings, he said “Everything you imagine is real.” So why not paint the world of your dreams with your imagination and then bring it to life? Enjoy yourself and make the most of this summer!

Cutting-edge Style and Humor for the Dog Days of Summer

With your Wry Guys Tee, you'll get a few laughs and encourage real thought with even the dourest souls — and you'll look great doing it! Your amusing libertarian t shirt can do all the talking while you get out and enjoy what you love to do. Just you and your comfy, cool t shirt will have fun, open a few minds, and make the world wry.

So this July Fourth, celebrate the freedoms we used to have by keeping your eye on the fireworks, a cold beer in your hand, and hopeful irreverence in your heart. As Mark Twain reminds us, “Irreverence is the champion of liberty.”
