VIVA LA EMPIRE by 6amcrisis VIVA LA EMPIRE by 6amcrisis
Darth Vader and the Empire have had a bad run in the press lately. We should try see things from his perspective. Sure, he did a lot of bad things, but he kept a lot of people in jobs and kept the economy running with big public construction projects - twice!

Inspired by some reading I’ve done about Ernesto “Che” Guevara I’ve taken the classic image and given it a Dark Side spin in this design for a tshirt and box stencil.

This is stupid, why are you writing in spanish "viva la" and then "empire" in english? Logically it shoud be "íVIVA LA IMPERIO!".

I've mashed together a pic Ernesto "Che" Guevara and Darth Vader and you're calling it stupid because I mixed English and Spanish? Really?

Hi *eisenaugen,
I just watched the documentary "Inside Job" about the GFC, and I lost count of how many times I shook my head in astonishment at the way the people have been fleeced by the banks/wall st/government, and yet after everything that occurred it appears NOTHING has changed.

you got it. people over here are *still* grumbling a bunch of patriotic tripe leftover from 2001, and our country has been looted ... and exactly half of the voters think it's a crime, while the other half hold their breath, some still acting like it's "rude" or "unamerican" to criticize the republicans ...
