2020 Presidential Election November 4, 2020 15:05
Well its day two of quite possibly one of the most anticipated and important elections in the history of the United States. At this point it is unclear exactly who is in the lead and there is no clear front runner. But we will stay on the say side, the smart side, which just so happens to be the right side and stick with good ole Donald Trump as the projected winner of the 2020 United States of America Presidential Election - but anything could happen. Biden still has a chance. Which blows...a lot.
Even though we haven't come out with a clear winner for the sweet POTUS position and for the next leader of the free world - there is one positive thing coming from the procrastination from the electoral college and the lack of a clear winner being announced or one of the candidates seceding.
You get to wear your badass, funny, and patriotic election tees for a few more days!
You can rock the 2020 election t-shirts a little bit longer especially
something like the:
Happy Birthday Honest Abe! When is Abraham Lincolns B-Day? February 12, 2020 03:14
Today, Tuesday February 12th, is Abraham Lincolns Favorite day....His Birthday!
On this day in 1809 Nancy Lincoln popped out this lanky geezer about 9 and a half months after Thomas Lincoln performed the first ever, in recorded history, wine, dine, and sixty-nine date night maneuver in order to secure coitus at then end of the evening. And boy are we glad that Nancy put out that night because good old Abe Lincoln changed the world in more ways than we could ever imagine.
So, make sure to pour one out for our home boy today in honor of his Birthday. And make sure you rock one of our bad ass patriotic Abraham Lincoln tees to let everyone else know your supports for this awesome president and to let them know about his b-day. Personally, I think the Drinkin Like Lincoln shirt is the best shirt for celebrating the 16th presidents birthday but there are plenty of other Abraham Lincoln tshirts and tank tops to choose from as well!
Send us your best pics rocking your Abe Lincoln apparel and let us know how you celebrated his birthday in the comments!

Happy Independence Day - 2019 Edition! July 4, 2019 21:10
Happy Birthday America!
At Merica Supply Co. we take our patriotism very seriously. While we really love joking around and having fun along with making patriotic and hilarious clothing and apparel we especially enjoy the pissed off liberals and the dirty looks from the snowflakes that we get when they catch a glimpse of our products.
But when we see how the crisp red, white, and blue colors on the American Flag or on a sign or even on a shirt like (oh, this one: Party Like It's 1776) we get fired up and ready for our favorite time of the year!
Everyone loves Christmas (yay, presents!) and Cinco de Mayo (yay, tequila!), BUT our favorite holiday by far has to be the celebration of our independence from Great Britain on July 4th, 1776 (the Continental Congress actually voted to declare independence on the 2nd, but it wasn’t made official until the 4th; great trivia question!). Like most times throughout our history, when faced with bullying, unfairness, or a threat to our way of life, we put our collective foot down and said “F*ck Off!”
You Know the Story
If you didn’t fall asleep during elementary school history class, then you know the story. Big, bad King George III thought he had a golden goose on his hands with the colonies here in America. The thirteen original colonies were fine with how things were going until ol’ George had the brilliant idea to tax paper and tea. Well, we had a little “tea party” of our own and built up the courage to tell the King to shove it!
Though we declared our independence in 1776, it took King George III five years and lot of dead redcoats to get the message. In 1781, at a battlefield in Yorktown, Virginia, British General Charles Cornwallis surrendered his army – and British hopes of maintaining a colony in America – to General George Washington (we’re sure Washington was wearing this as he accepted Cornwallis’ surrender!).
Cornwall surrenders at Yorktown, 1781
Cel-e-brate Good Times, Come on!
Since that time, patriots have held some sort of Independence Day celebration in towns, counties, and states across the country, and we’ve been kicking ass! From Bristol, Rhode Island where the longest-running July 4th parade is held (continuous since 1785) to the annual Macy’s fireworks display on the East River in New York City – televised since 1976, our bicentennial.
Besides fireworks, one of the most enjoyed traditions of July 4th is a good old-fashioned barbecue. You know, hot dogs, hamburgers, BBQ chicken, and potato salad…mmmm. What could be better than rocking a Ben Drankin t-shirt or Party Like a Patriot tank top while throwing back a cold one at a backyard barbecue?
Though it’s been 243 years since we declared independence from a tyrannical government, it’s important to remember what we were fighting for. Here’s a quick reminder:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.” [link: http://www.ushistory.org/declaration/document/]
So, as you’re having fun at the barbecue or picnic and looking forward to the nighttime fireworks show, know that some great people paved the way for our freedoms. From our brilliant founding fathers to our dedicated military servicemembers, July 4th is truly a day of celebration! Speaking of that, make sure to post some of your awesome July 4th pictures using #july42019, #independenceday2019, and #mericasupplyco and show us how you celebrate your independence!
Remember The Fallen: Memorial Day 2019 May 24, 2019 23:47
Memorial Day in the United States is special day where we remember our fallen service members from all of America’s conflicts. This year, it will be held on Monday, May 27, 2019.
If they were in any branch of the United States Armed Forces and gave the ultimate sacrifice, no matter what battle, conflict, or war they were involved in, Memorial Day serves to commemorate and honor every American Soldier who lost their life in the protection of the freedoms we enjoy, take advantage of, everyday.
To lighten the mood just a little bit, Memorial Day also marks the unofficial start of summer which will be filled with patriotic barbecues, USA themed pool parties, and classic rock concerts all while sporting the best badass American tees and tanks showing your love for your country and your support for its veterans and active duty service members!
Summer-time fun is basically an American tradition, but remember the real reason we can have our summer fun is because of the commitment and ultimate sacrifice of the members of our armed forces – from all of America’s conflicts.
A Little History
The first Memorial Day – it was actually called Decoration Day – observed in 1868, three years after the end of the American Civil War. A Union general called for a nationwide observance of the sacrifices of soldiers, sailors, and Marines during the conflict. Up until then, there had been many local celebrations and commemorations across the country where citizens would lay flowers on grave stones, reconnect with distant family, attend church service, and share dinner.
Individual states enacted legal commemorative holidays with New York celebrating the first official statewide Memorial Day in 1873 (Waterloo, NY was the first town to observe Memorial Day). The holiday had been solely focused on Civil War dead, but after World War I, Memorial Day was changed to include the dead of all America’s wars. In 1971, Memorial Day was officially declared a national federal holiday to be celebrated on the last Monday in May.
Celebrate, but Commemorate
Memorial Day commemorations are held in just about every town in the country. Usually, veterans’ organizations, schools, and other groups place small American flags on gravestones at veterans’ cemeteries. Other events include parades, speeches by veterans, and cookouts. We love cookouts and know that you can be respectful of the fallen while also celebrating their service. We also like to look good while honoring these American heroes – especially by wearing patriotic apparel like our I Don't Kneel T-Shirt or the Don't Tread on Me Tank.
Even though we like to have fun, we recognize that we’re only able to really enjoy the freedom and liberty of this country because of the sacrifices of those who gave their lives for us. Our business is possible because they fought and died to protect the greatest political, economic, and social system in the history of the world. We can’t thank them enough.
We want to see how you’re celebrating and commemorating our fallen heroes this Memorial Day. Are you placing a flag at a veterans’ cemetery? Wearing a poppy flower on your lapel (poppy flowers are the defining image of both Memorial Day and Veterans Day)? Walking or watching a parade? Use the hashtag #memorialday2019 and #mericasupplyco to share your patriotic Memorial Day images and messages to show your appreciation for our fallen heroes.
Happy Military Spouse Appreciation Day! May 10, 2019 10:10
Like few other countries around the world, the United States of America embraces, respects, and yes, loves, our military service members. We acknowledge their sacrifices through many holidays throughout the year, numerous events and parades, along with countless small gestures made locally and abroad ranging from care packages sent overseas to active duty service members to a hand shake and a thank you to the local veteran you see all the time around town. At Merica Supply Co, we show our love and respect by offering free items and discounts to active duty embers of the military, veterans and their families. Along with that we take a lot of pride in providing you guys and the rest of America with clothing and apparel products that allow red blooded patriotic Americans to show their pride and love for our great nation! Even as we show our love and respect to our service members, these heroes often times have another extremely important and valuable person in their lives that goes unnoticed and underappreciated by most.
The person we are referring to is the military spouse. We can’t forget this member of the team who bears a similar burden and sacrifices almost as much. Which is why the U.S. government created a national holiday focused specifically on recognizing these important yet sometimes forgotten "members" of our military. We are, of course, referring to Military Spouse Appreciation Day which each year on the Friday before Mother’s Day has been designated as National Military Spouse Appreciation Day by proclamation of The President of The United States of America!
This year this important holiday just so happens to be today, Friday March 10th, 2019.
Hard Work and Hardship
Thousands of U.S. military spouses are stuck at home thousands of miles away from their loved ones OR they might even be stationed with their spouse taking them away from their families and their homes and moving them across the country and around the world sharing in the hardships of their husbands or wives who are engaged in all types of military activity.
When the service member is deployed, either for routine training or not-so-routine combat operations, the spouse must stay home and keep the family and household running all by themselves most of the time and to make things more difficult they do all this with minimal financial support from their spouses job in the military. This often leaves them with no choice other than to get a job themselves making caring for their children and keeping the household and family together and running smoothly even more difficult.
Man or woman, it doesn’t matter, the military spouse is give the mundane tasks of house cleaning, paying bills, routine maintenance, and yard work – not to mention the vital tasks of childcare and working to make money!
All of this among many many other reasons is why military spouses deserve a day of recognition.
A New Honor
The official holiday giving these important members of our military's families and lives hasn’t been around of long. President Ronald Reagan signed the first proclamation for Military Spouse Day on May 23, 1984 (six months before his historic re-election! But we digress…) to recognize the “…profound importance of spouse commitment to the readiness and well-being of service members on active duty and in the National Guard and Reserve, and to the security of our Nation.”
Recognize and Appreciate
This day (May 10, 2019) is a chance for all of us to acknowledge the sacrifice and dedication of United States military spouses at home and stationed around the world. They really deserve our praise and respect. If you know a military spouse, show them some love with a gift from our patriotic themed apparel shop. And if you don’t know a spouse, you can still share your thoughts and appreciation by sharing messages and images on social media while making sure to use the hashtags #MilitarySpouseAppreciationDay and #mericasupplyco so we can share your images, thoughts, and well wishes!
God Bless America!

May The Tequila Be With You! May 5, 2019 16:26
At Merica Supply Co, along with our patriotic and party apparel, we LOVE tequila and tacos and rocking our favorite “Tequila Made Me Do it” t-shirt! So, when the calendar turns to May, we get fired up! Even though Cinco de Mayo is based on a serious incident in Mexican history, it’s become an excellent time to enjoy Mexican culture, heritage…and did we mention tequila and tacos?!
In Mexico, Cinco de Mayo (the 5th of May for those of you who don’t speak Spanish) is actually a minor event. It’s not a federal holiday – no banks or government offices are closed. In Mexico, it’s mainly celebrated in the town of Puebla de Los Angeles to commemorate the battle that took place there, but in the rest of the country, not that big of a deal.
Here’s the quick background before we get to the fun part: Mexico had refused to pay its debts to Britain, France, and Spain in the 1860s, so France sent its naval forces to invade and get paid. Well, on May 5, 1862, a scrappy band of 2,000 Mexican fighters stood up to a force of 6,000 French troops and sent them packing (insert French joke here). Naturally this was a time to celebrate, so…
Cinco De Mayo!
Though Mexicans don’t spend a lot of time celebrating Cinco de Mayo, in America, we love to party and celebrate with good food and better drinks! Cinco de Mayo is one of the most popular holidays in the United States. It’s an opportunity to celebrate Mexican heritage and culture – with gallons of tequila and pounds of mole poblano – all while wearing a “Cinco de Drinko” or “Tequila Es Mi Amigo” t-shirt! The most popular locations to find a great Cinco de Mayo celebration are in Los Angeles, Houston, and Chicago (or any place with a large Mexican population).
You can enjoy parades, dancing, great food, and of course, tequila. So, when you’re ready to celebrate the right way this May 5th, grab a shot glass filled with your favorite tequila and a “Tacos & Tequila” t-shirt and show us how you party!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!
Happy No Pants Day! May 3, 2019 18:09
This is one of those days that really needs no introduction. It’s not an official national holiday in the United States – but is should be. Today, ladies and gentlemen, is National No Pants Day! We’ve been waiting for this day since…well, since last National No Pants Day. We love not wearing pants and wouldn’t wear them to the store, to school, to work, to church, or…ok, sorry, now it’s getting weird.
So, what should you wear on National No Pants Day? Funny you should ask. How about this https://www.mericasupply.com/products/no-pants-are-the-best-pants-shirt?
Just in case you’re wondering, the first National No Pants Day may have been celebrated in 1985 or 1986, but there’s also speculation that a frat at the University of Texas, Austin started it in 2004 as a way to wrap up their spring semester. Regardless of the history, this would be a great official national holiday – especially as we’re coming up on Cinco de Mayo (let’s get the party started early, huh?)
So, we hope you’ve been doing your deep knee bends, calf raises, and squats because today, everyone will see those legs!
On second thought, maybe we don’t want this to be an official national holiday. Could you imagine some members of Congress with no pants on?
Let’s just keep it the way it is.
Oh, by the way, for the sake of us all, please wear clean underwear!
Thank a Vietnam War Veteran! March 28, 2019 20:05
Surprisingly, a day to honor the service men and women who fought in the Vietnam War is a very new holiday. Our President – and yours too, liberals! – Donald Trump signed the Vietnam War Veterans Day Act on March 28, 2017 to honor veterans on the anniversary of the withdrawal of U.S. forces from South Vietnam. Honestly, we’ve done those veterans a huge disservice since then by not wholeheartedly acknowledging their sacrifices and service – but today we can make it right by honoring them!
Did you know?
Vietnam was the longest armed conflict in U.S. history. From 1945 – 1973, there was some sort of American presence in Vietnam, from small teams of U.S. Army Special Forces to full combat divisions, air wings, and naval fleets. The veterans we honor on March 29th served in many different capacities across Vietnam from hospital corpsmen to snipers and fighter pilots and truck drivers – and a thousand things in between!
The combat was especially tough considering the environment, terrain, and tactics of the enemy. Our brave men and women who operated in this jungle combat setting truly deserve our thanks, Every. Single. Day. Over the course of the conflict, five U.S. presidents were elected (Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon), American culture changed dramatically (“Make Love, Not War”; flower children, etc.), and our view of government became extremely cynical. It was a really rough time for our country.
But all of the civil and social upheaval and protests back here in America was nothing compared to those serving in Vietnam (or Laos and Cambodia). Of the 500,000 soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines who serviced, 58,000 gave the ultimate sacrifice. According to the U.S. Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency, there were 2,646 Americans captured by enemy forces and 1,589 have not been returned.
President Trump is dedicated to bringing all of our troops home to their families. But in the meantime, let’s not forget our Vietnam War veterans. So, on March 29, if you know a Vietnam War vet, buy them a drink, take them to lunch, thank them, show them you care about what they did. If you’re on social media use #mericasupplyco and #vietnamwarveteransday to share your thoughts and let us know how you’re going to honor our Vietnam War veterans.
Get Your Mardi Gras On! March 7, 2019 21:42
It’s that time of the year again. Where you throw your inhibitions to the wind. It’s Mardi Gras!!
Just because Mardi Gras is also known as “Fat Tuesday,” doesn’t mean you won’t be able to fit into one of our patriotic party shirts! As you know, Mardi Gras is a celebration of fun, food, frothy beer, and funky costumes. It’s a time to let your hair down and party!
Oh, and before I forget. Mardi Gras is also a somber religious day that observes the last chance to eat rich foods before Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent.
Enough of that serious stuff. Mardi Gras was traditionally celebrated mostly in French-tradition cities in the United States (like New Orleans), but has become a chance (or excuse) for everyone to eat, drink, and be merry on a Tuesday!
So, put on a Red, White & Booze shirt, find your nearest Mardi Gras parade or bar (or both!) and let us know how you’re going to celebrate! Use hashtag #mericasupplyco and #mardigras2019 and show us your best Mardi Gras party pictures!
Laissez les bons temps rouler! (Let the good times roll!)
Happy National Anthem Day!(March 3rd) March 3, 2019 17:30
At Merica Supply Co., we love America. That shouldn’t come as a surprise. Our patriotic apparel is perfect for you favorite USA holiday or for everyday wear to show your love and support for the United States and it lets us scream from the rooftops that we’re the best country in the world and we don’t apologize for that FACT.
We love to learn about America and when we learn something that pumps us up about this great country, we want to share. Today, boys and girls, we’re going to learn about the National Anthem, March 3rd, and Herbert Hoover.
What and Who??
Admit it, you really don’t know what today is and what the 31st President of the United States, Herbert Hoover, has to do with it do you? It’s ok. Most people probably think it’s just a normal Sunday in March (it isn’t) and Hoover had something to do with vacuum cleaners (he didn’t). He did preside over the beginning of the Great Depression though, so there’s that.
But what really made him a great president is that he signed a congressional resolution to make the “Star-Spangled Banner” the official national anthem of the United States of America on March 3, 1931!
Now lets jump in the wayback machine with us so we can show you how it all happened…
Way, way, way back
During the War of 1812, the at-the-time evil British were laying seize to Baltimore, Maryland with intentions of destroying Washington DC (they did, but that’s another story). Well, a friend of Francis Scott Key got captured by those same bad British blokes and F. Scott Key went to negotiate his release. The British, doing what bad guys do, “detained” Key while they launched hundreds of tons of cannonballs on Fort McHenry (which defended the river towards Baltimore).
Throughout the night, the British just bombarded the bejesus out of the fort – not to mention a heavy rain and thunder storm battered the fort’s occupants as well. By the morning, the British were feeling confident(Oops). And as the clouds, fog, and smoke cleared, what did they see?
That’s right, Old Glory, flying majestically over the fort. The Americans had held off the British!
Key was so inspired after seeing this he wrote a poem, “The Defence of Fort M’Henry,” which eventually became a song, “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
Now lets fast forward 110 years, England isn’t our enemy and we don’t have an official national anthem, until – good ol’ Herbert Hoover signed that congressional resolution! Maybe he deserves a tank top like a couple of our other great, historic presidents!
Happy National Anthem Day! Sing it loud and proud today! Oh, and don’t forget the other verses https://amhistory.si.edu/starspangledbanner/the-lyrics.aspx (that most people don't know exist! 😉).
Celebrate with us by retweeting, forwarding, sharing this post using #mericasupplyco and #nationalanthemday and show us how you celebrate our national anthem!
Fun fact: The music that Key used to accompany the “Star-Spangled Banner” was actually an old British drinking song called, “The Anacreontic Song,” named after a Greek poet who loved him some wine!

Happy Presidents Day or Happy Birthday George Washington! Which one?? February 19, 2019 00:15
Okay, Lets be honest for a sec.
The only thing you think about when you hear “President’s Day” are the cheesy sales and hopefully the chance for a day off, but mainly the day off, right?
And since we are all being honest here...We think that too, but hey who can blame us we like sales(and days off) just as much as everyone else. And, hell, I want to be out rocking my We the People Like to Party t-shirt on my three-day weekend shotgunning American beers while listening to Party in the USA by Miley Cyrus blaring on the boom box at the beach!
Anyway, besides the sales (Shameless plug to our 30% off Presidents sale - Use code "USAPREZ30" at checkout) and long weekends, we truly believe it’s important to understand the history of Presidents’ Day – which also happens to be the OG President, George Washington’s birthday (or is it the other way around: it’s Washington’s birthday and it just happens to coincide with Presidents’ Day?). See? This is why it’s important to know our history because this is obviously something that an adult is going to need to know should they find themselves on Jeopardy or Family Feud.
Which came first?
Well, that’s the wrong question to ask. George Washington was born on February 22, 1732. His birthday was celebrated by Americans while he was alive and continues to this day. It was declared an official national holiday in 1879. However, in 1968, Congress passed the Monday Holiday Law to “provide uniform annual observances of certain legal public holidays on Mondays” – basically to give federal employees more three-day holidays. That moved Washington’s birthday observance to the third Monday in February every year (this year is the 18th).
According to mountvernon.org, the term ‘Presidents’ Day’ was proposed for the Monday holiday in 1951, but it was never officially changed. At least until the 1980s when some clever holiday advertising popularized the term and voila, Presidents’ Day is the more recognized and celebrated holiday. There are a handful of states that specifically celebrate the third Monday in February as Washington’s Birthday or George Washington Day. In Virginia, the entire month is dedicated to celebrating Washington’s birth!
How we celebrate
Though our apparel is a little more risqué, we do honestly believe that the great George Washington gave us all a gift that we can never repay: a free country with a Bill of Rights that we need to use and fight for each and every day.
So, how do we celebrate George Washington’s birthday? I’m glad you asked. Here are some ideas you can try too:
- Wear a powdered wig along with our George Washinguns tank top
- Find a cherry tree to chop down while wearing our Squad Goals t-shirt
- Sing “Happy birthday” to a dollar bill(If you send us a video of you doing this in a public place we will personally send you a free t-shirt!)
All kidding aside, celebrating the birthday of our first president should give all of us an opportunity to remember his heroism during the American revolution, his leadership as president, and his restraint for not accepting a third term, even though many citizens thought he deserved it – not to mention some thought he should be our king!
So, how do you celebrate George Washington’s birthday? If you don’t celebrate it now, will you start? Share some of your best George Washington celebration photos with us!
Happy birthday George Washington and Thank you to all the Presidents of the United States that have made our country great!
One of America's Largest Retailers Says the word "America" is Offensive...WTF! February 7, 2019 12:36My blood boils each time I read it. They actually had the balls to say (referring to one of our shirts), “…we observe that in the title it contains “America” which is offensive as per the trust and safety policy.”
The Scariest Halloween Costume of 2018 - A REPUBLICAN October 16, 2018 16:56
WANT TO REALLY SCARE ALL THE LIBERALS THIS HALLOWEEN?
Imagine this, if you will: a 300-pound behemoth in a capitalist-blue suit with an impossibly long red tie is lurching down the sidewalk, a bouffant of Aryan hair flapping with every step. This is a blitzkrieg of a man, stopping only briefly to snatch bags of candy from frightened children, and taking one extra moment to shove them to the ground by their faces.
Now THAT is a nightmare of a Halloween costume in the eyes of a democrat. In fact, to hear it told, some of the scariest costumes this year may well be ones impersonating GOP members who the news has made out to be the worst of the worst as of late.
It seems like all a Grand Old Partier has to do anymore is show up, and the libtards are on their cells dialing 911, or online marking themselves “unsafe”. Charles Grassley we can understand. (Does that guy ever take his mask off?) And we’ll grudgingly concede there are a few others who sometimes give us shudders. So why not run with it?
The good news is that all you need to scare the daylights out of the leftist sheep this Halloween is a suit in Republican-issue blue, maybe a wig, and perhaps a prop here or there. With those simple items, you can portray any scary Republican.
Take Paul Ryan for instance, known in Nordic circles as Pall the Sadd. In your blue suit with an Eddie Munster wig, all you need do is keep your head downcast somberly, appearing to hold back tears, or that chili dog you unfortunately had for lunch. Here’s a bonus tip: use an eyebrow pencil to elongate the corners of your mouth to look extra-extra sad or urgent, as the case may be.
For Lindsay Graham you’ll need fake teeth. Let’s face it, the dude has teeth and he’s not afraid to bare them. You might have trouble finding fake ones quite so nice. In a pinch, get vampire teeth and snip off the ends of the ones that suck. To do Lindsay all the way, a little eyeliner never hurts either. Orrin Hatch presents more challenges. None of us are sure he’s still alive. Some zombie face paint might do the trick.
And just when you thought GOP costumes couldn’t get any scarier, HERE COME DA JUDGE! It's almost too easy to impersonate the Honorable Kavanaugh, plus you can have extra fun depending on what you wear beneath your robe. To get into full character, simply repeat passionately: “I like beer! I like beer! I like beer!” Say it ad nauseam, until someone finally gives you a freakin’ beer. If that doesn’t work, attack them with facial expressions. Use the pious crying face: “Please, please, could someone give me a beer!” The squinty ferret face: “Is that a beer over there? I want that beer.” The defiant face: “I am entitled to beer! I went to Yale!”
But if you don't want to go to all the trouble of actually dressing up in a real costume. And if you were raised right (or even left of center), you might want to consider slipping into one of the our shirts from the patriotic red-white-and-blue assortment at Merica Supply Co. Whatever your stripes, we have you covered in amusing American tanks and tees, proudly printed in the USA!

George W. Bush Involved in a Fight that took place during President Donald Trumps Inauguration January 21, 2017 03:16
George Bush felt the need to spice things up a little bit at Donald Trump inauguration today by getting into a physical fight. You heard us right, a former president was in a fight at the inauguration. Well technically in a fight...and not with a human, or living creature for that matter.
The weather wasn't great in Washington D.C. today so many people wore the appropriate attire, brought umbrellas, or brought rain ponchos(the choice of Dubya). However, when it came time to put on the poncho things started to head south rapidly.
Bush was right in front of good old boy Dick Cheney who actually found the situation fairly amusing and even helped out the poor fella(leader of our nation for 8 years through some of the toughest times we have ever seen) at one point.
Bush was right behind Obama who was no impressed with the activities going on behind him especially since every single problem in his presidency was George Bush's fault. Even when Malia went to Lollapalooza and was caught smoking weed...guess what...that was former President George W. Bush's fault.
Sorry getting side tracked.
But lets get back to the dirt which can be best explained int he pictures!
(President Obama ignoring literally everything that is going on. Wont even look back or ask someone sitting near him. #COMPASSION)
I'd like to look at this as a review of Barack Obama's presidency:
Someone is in trouble and could use a little help. Just a hand to get them back ob their feet. However, since this person was not in Obama's voter demographic the person did not matter. That person was actually a nuisance to Obama and he and his administration did everything in their power to take attention away from this growing problem and push a different issue. A possibly less important issue. But this issue moved his agenda forward. And that kids is Obama's 8 years in presidency in a paragraph about George W Bush struggling to put on a rain poncho.
There are plenty more pictures where this came from but I just don't have the time or motivation(mainly motivation) to show them all to you. Good luck with google!
Let us know if you agree or disagree in the comments. But more importantly just tell me how funny I am. If you tell me I'm funny I might give you a free shirt ;)
Peace Out Patriots!

Buh Bye! 12 Celebrities Leaving the U.S. Since Trump Won the Election November 16, 2016 13:12
As you all know by now, Donald Trump is the new president-elect of the USA and come January 2017 he will be sworn is as the official president of the United States. We are all aware of the whiny liberals and hipsters flocking to the streets and protesting because Hillary Clinton didn't win and they didn't get their way.
However, there are quite a few notable celebrities who are also pretty upset about Donald Trump winning and these people promised that they would leave the U.S. if Trump won. We all know that the majority of these cry baby celebs probably won't leave the U.S. so we have compiled this list of famous people who promised to leave America so we can prove just how hypocritical they are.
1. The first celebrity shouldn't be a shock at all since she and the Donald have had a famous dispute for the last decade. So the first person we have the privilege of saying goodbye to is Rosie Odonnel!
2. This next celebrity is going to give everyone a good laugh! Miley Cyrus has pledged to leave the U.S. if Trump wins because she thinks he disrespects and degrades women. Coming from the girl who dresses in the most ridiculously slutty outfits and is a role model for tens of thousands of young girls teaching them that dressing provocatively, twerking and smoking weed is how to be a women.
Not lets speed this list up a little bit since I don't really feel like typing out a paragraph for everyone of these losers so now the list will just convert to showing their names lol.
3. Annoying and Irrelevant Comedian Amy Schumer.
4. Old and also now irrelevant comedian Jon Stewart.
5. Woman barely considered to be a comedian Chelsea Handler.
6. Al Sharpton.
7. Samuel L. Jackson.
9. George Lopez.
10. Barbara Streisand.
11. Bryan Cranston...I am actually a little upset about this one since Breaking Bad is one of my favorite shows of all time. But if you don't support America then go fuck off!
12. Last but not least is a surprising one...Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Buh Bye!
So here are 12 of the countless people who vowed to leave America if Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election. We will keep you posted on how many of these whiny liberals actually leave...my guess being ZERO.
Let us know what you think about this in the comments!
The New President of the United States of America: Donald J. Trump November 9, 2016 15:17
In a stunning upset over Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump pulls off a major victory to win the presidency of the USA. Donald Trump will be the 45th president of the United States after winning the long and grueling campaign process that came to a conclusion late at night Tuesday November 8th, 2016.
Trump was officially announced as the winner of the election after Hillary Clinton placed a phone call to Trump in the early hours around 3:00am on Wednesday morning conceding to Trump. Shortly after receiving the call Donald Trump took the stage to give a quite spectacular speech which you can view right here:
Donald Trumps speech was truly presidential and we hope that is a preview of whats to come.
Now I am sure this comes without a surprise but the liberals and democrats are absolutely furious about this upset. Facebook and twitter are on fire with these people complaining about the victory and saying that America is ruined and that they will never support Trump.
They are basically saying everyone who voted for Trump is a racist, bigot, sexist, etc, etc. Honestly, this is absolutely appalling. These are the people that claim to be the peaceful ones, the accepting ones, but as soon as something doesn't go their way they go into attack mode.
I hope the learn to get over this and supports OUR new president as he is not just the president of the republicans...he is the president of everyone and now more then ever we need to unite to make america great again!
Let us know what you think about trump being elected president in the comments below.
The Funniest 2016 Presidential Election T-Shirts November 5, 2016 15:39
Alright everyone...this years presidential election has been one for the record books. It has been more like watching a reality TV show then watching the next leader of the most powerful nation on earth be chosen. From FBI investigations, crazy speeches, leaked recordings, scandal after scandal, and many other "spectacles" there has been plenty of fuel for the fire for people like us to come up with hilarious shirts that play off of the presidential election.
So now we have rounded up some of our absolute favorite tshirts about the 2016 presidential election. The first shirt on the list is the "Grab Em By The Pussy" Shirt that was derived from the scandal involving Donald Trump and a leaked recording of him having some banter with the bros about the ladies. We have made a number of variations of this funny offensive tee and you can take a look at all of them at this link!
The next shirt on the list comes from one of Hillary Clinton's numerous f*ck ups. This particular scandal was when she called all of Donald Trumps supporters "Deplorable". So we thought it would be humorous to show our pride in being deplorable and made the "Deplorable as Fuck" shirt which comes in mens t-shirt, tank top, and long sleeve shirt as well as womens tee. As well as featuring the funny deplorable as fuck phrase it also has the republican mascot to let everyone know that who ever wearing the shirt is a deplorable republican who supports trump!
Our next shirt was made for people that are tired of the two party political system. Now more then ever people are very unhappy with both the democratic party and the republican party. So we decided to give the citizens of the United States a third option...The Pizza Party! With the political pizza party shirt you can let everyone know where your support lies. And that is with pizza!
Not the last shirt for this post is quite possibly my favorite presidential election shirt of all time and if I ever run for president this will definitely be my campaign slogan. The shirt is the "Make America Not A Bunch of Pussies Offended by Everything Again" T-Shirt! The USA has been going through what I like to call the Pussification of America.
Everyday we get worse and worse and everyone is offended by everything and its really fucking annoying. Kids (and adults) need to man the fuck up and grow a sack. What ever happened to sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt me?
Everyone is such a pussy these days and we have practically lost our freedom of speech since all these little fucking twats are "hurt" by someone saying something mean. So with that said we felt it was our duty to try and spread the message across and try to Make America Not A Bunch of Pussies Offended by Everything Again!
So that's it for this post but don't worry we have plenty more funny election shirts, as well as many other republican t-shirts and tank tops, and funny and offensive Donald Trump Tees. You can take a look at all of our apparel at www.MericaSupply.com!
Let us know what you think of our election collection in the comments and if you think you have a good t-shirt idea that can make the cut feel free to email us at email@example.com.
The United States of America Flag Code: An Overview November 2, 2016 11:54
When Betsy Ross stitched together the first United States flag, she couldn’t have imaged the thickness and technical nature of the flag code that would ensue. To say it’s comprehensive is akin to saying that Donald Trump likes himself just a little. The code is massive.
The U.S. flag code, adopted in June of 1923, governs the official care and display of the flag of the United States of America, known colloquially as Old Glory. Flag-waving, red-blooded Americans follow the code to the letter when it comes to displaying their flags, but the code is largely unenforced at the federal level following a Supreme Court ruling in 1989 that made enforcement of parts of the code unconstitutional. Still, states each have their own flag codes, so those who deface or mutilate it can still face prosecution on the state level.
The flag code itself is an extensive compilation of regulations and codes; it has 50 sections, each of which are divided in subsections, and some subsections are even further divided into chapters and paragraphs. To put it mildly, it’s a lot to take in. Let’s focus instead on some of the most important parts of the flag code.
When to Display the U.S. Flag
Although it is perfectly acceptable under the U.S. Flag Code to display the flag every day of the year, displaying it on federal holidays, state holidays, and the birthday of your particular state is highly encouraged.
The flag should be displayed from sunrise to sunset, although some people choose to leave their flags up 24/7, and that’s not prohibited, as long as the flag is illuminated during the overnight hours.
How To Display the U.S. Flag
If you are displaying the flag from your home, then a staff should be used. The staff should project horizontally from the front of the home, balcony, or window sill, with the flag’s union at the peak.
For displays without a staff, then the union should be uppermost in the display, to the left of the observer. On Memorial Day, the flag should be lowered to half staff from sunrise until 12 p.m.
Respecting the Flag
The flag should never touch the ground, and it should never be worn; no, using the flag as a toga at last year’s Fourth of July bash won’t land you in jail, but it does put you in defiance of the U.S. Flag Code.
It is also a sign of disrespect to fly any U.S. flag other than a weatherproof flag during times of inclement weather. To store the flag, it should be folded with into a triangle with the field of blue stars facing the front and the triangle pointing upwards.
Disposing of a U.S. Flag
When a flag becomes tattered, it must be destroyed with dignity; burning is the preferred method of disposal. Most Veterans of Foreign Wars, Boys Scouts clubs, and American Legions host flag-burning ceremonies for the community to dispose of flags that are no longer fitting for presentation and display.
There you have it - a rundown of some of the most essential rules in the U.S. Flag Code. Basically, the code calls for us to respect the flag, since it is an endearing symbol of the freedom and liberty that so many men and women have sacrificed to maintain since the flag’s inception in 1777. Taking pride in the flag is a great way to show your love of this great country of ours.

Donald Trump Recording: "Grab Em By The Pussy" October 31, 2016 15:42
Back in 2005 Donald Trump was on the set of the soap opera "Days of Our Lives". While their The Donald was wearing a microphone that we are assuming he was not aware that was recording.
Trump was is his trailer shooting the shit with reporter Billy Bush when he made a number of comments that some whiny cry babies are very offended by. The most notable comment being "Grab 'em by the pussy" when describing hoe easy it is to get with chicks when you are famous.
Obviously this was just locker room banter between bros and I highly doubt the Trump ever actually attempted to just grab any woman by the pussy out of no where. That would be a little ridiculous.
Now obviously since this recording surfaced Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democrats pounced and spun this way out of proportion. The attack ads are already all over the news and the whiny liberals and democrats are all over it trying to use it against Trump.
You can check out the video below:
I actually find the video pretty funny. And most guys would be lying if the said that they never said anything like that when just chatting shit with the bros. Either way since Trump is running for president this is kind of a big deal. But to make light of the situation we made some pretty funny Trump t-shirts playing off this "scandal".
Here are a few of the shirts. They all come in Tank Top, Mens Tee, Womens Tee, and Long Sleeve shirt. They are also available in a number of different colors!
We also have a number of other funny and offensive Donald Trump T-shirts and tank tops which you can view at the link below.
Let us know what you think about this whole situation in the comments below!

You can still submit picture via the direct message feature on instagram or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
'Merica Monday launching in 3-2-1 BLASTOFF:
1. What better way to start than with the beautiful American Flag waving in the wind!
2. And now that we have seen the flag lets all say the Pledge of Allegiance...and then chug a beer ;)
3. Now we chug said beer by the pool with a hot blonde in an American Flag bikini.
4. And now there's a Bald Eagle at the pool trying to hit on the hot blonde. We don't stand a chance against this guy.
5. Let's change courses a little bit and checkout this pretty babe playing with some high powered rifles. Pew Pew Pew!
6. And last but not least. God Bless America!
We wanted to keep it short and sweet for our first 'Merica Monday post. We hope you liked it. If you have any comments, suggestions, or want to submit your own most American pictures email us at: email@example.com
God Bless America!

Merica Supply Co. USA Backyard BBQ Sneak Peek March 9, 2016 12:05
Hello fellow patriots! We hope everyone is have a wondeful whiskey Wednesday.
For those of you who didn't know we recently took an epic trip to Los Angeles, California and while we were on the trip we decided to host a little America themed backyard BBQ party.
The party consisted of a lot of beers, blondes, brunettes, burgers, and TWINS! We were lucky enough to have my good friend and film producer Evan there to get the whole thing on film.
The footage looks fucking amazing and I wanted to give you guys a little sneak peek while we finish up the full length video. So here is a quick look at what went down at our epic MERICA party! And don't forget to keep an eye out for the full version coming very soon.
