in terms of politics...communism in and of itself is not evil. how it has been applied has had evil results. you could just as easily point to examples of monarchies being evil throughout history. or current "democracies" which really are just fronts for dictators. just because you fell hook line and sinker for our governments campaign against the "evil empire" does not mean the rest of us are "meth heads". it is a far better argument that the greatest threat to our safety and wellbeing as a nation this century has been fascism rather than communism.
I will wear this shirt happily, and send my son to school in it as well. it is a fun shirt, and anyone who is stupid enough to think that dinos combined with communism somehow equals promotion of a communist dictatorship is the one obviously drinking the koolaid.
I strongly concur with and repeat what you wrote for the benefit of those lacking a sense of humour and/or understanding of opinions and points of view outside their own narrow, little worlds. I could not have articulated it better myself!
For an extra perspective: my mother's family came over to America from the Soviet Union. I grew up listening to them discussing their friends' and their own time spent in gulags and under the communist regime. They lost large parts of their families and friends to the gulags, so they have as much reason as any of you (if not more so) to hate Communism. Their unanimous conclusions? That Soviet communism was not communism, but fascism disguised as communism. And you know what else? They're going to find this tshirt hilarious.
I was made to love magic, all its wonder to know.
But you all lost that magic, many many years ago.
