I went xmas shopping in the mall and looked around me as Americans who are all very concerned about our economy and its possible permanent decline were scoffing up foreign made products (including myself). Its just plain strange behaviour !!
I found this company online. They are out of Ohio and they make clothes. The link brings you to the story of how the company got started and what they are all about. Just knowing that the owner cares about the long term outcome of our country was enough for me to place an order! Why should I give my money to someone who can care less about this country?
Take a read and see if you want to buy something. They offer free shipping for orders over 99.00 so be smart and find friends or family that need some cloths and combine your order to get this savings!
Tomorrow, Thursday 6/23 the Assembly will be voting on bill A4133 (pension/benefit reform). Its going to be close so we need to be there!

About 230 of our Illinois brothers and sisters from USW Local 7-669 have been locked out of their jobs since June of last year. During this time, their employer, Morristown based Honeywell, has demanded drastic cuts to their pensions, health care, and work rules. Join us next week as we rally with our Illinois brothers and sisters in New Jersey against Honeywell’s egregious behavior.
Date:Monday, April 25, 2011
Time:9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
Place:Honeywell Global Headquarters
101 Columbia Road
Morristown, NJ 07960
Workers at the Metropolis, Illinois facility process millions of pounds of highly hazardous acids and uranium hexafluoride. Under these conditions, proper training and safety regulations are essential. Despite this fact, Honeywell has hired untrained replacement workers, jeopardizing not only these workers lives, but the lives of people in the community.
This example of corporate greed and negligence is reprehensible. When a New Jersey based company propagates such practices, we will stand with our union brothers and sisters to demand justice.
Union members will travel hundreds of miles from Illinois to rally at Honeywell Global Headquarters in our state. Please join us so we can give these workers a warm New Jersey welcome and remind Honeywell that an assault on one of us is an assault on all of us.
Charles Wowkanech, President
Laurel Brennan, Secretary-Treasurer

What I want to express to whomever is reading this, is that it is very important to get involved nowadays. Going to this event turned out to be productive. The unions that were there were; FMBA, SEIU, AFL-CIO, IATSE, UFCW and the Jewish Labor committee. There was probably more but I just didn`t get a chance to meet them. Some people drove from Long Island and others from New York. They were from private unions and public unions and from all different types of industries. There was a panel of people who spoke. Two senators, an economist and many more. They each took a turn and spoke for 5 minutes. They all discussed the importance of unions and workers rights and above all they all expressed their optimism. I walked out of there with even more energy and excitement for the future. As bad as it looks now, the sleeping giant has woken and what is to come will be earth shattering!
It is in my opinion that Senators Rush Holt & Robert Menendez deserve our support after hearing them speak at this event.
