Just got notice of this Rally this in my mailbox and I hope to see tons of people at Noon on October 12th  Correction October 21st at 39th Street and 7th Avenue, under the Big Button Statue.  For more info go here.

We have to keep manufacturing and all the support businesses in Manhattan.  This city,  this country cannot afford to just toss out and ghetto- ize buisnesses that are providing REAL  JOBS  that support REAL & SKILLED workers.  We cannot afford to put all our eggs into the unrealistic and now proven delusory fantasy that is Wall Street  & the so called "market".  Whose market?  Unlike Shakespeare, in this case, "thinking" be it on paper or via some quant's computer model,  doesn't make it so.
We need to keep these skilled and specialty jobs in Manhattan. We need to keep these skilled jobs in this country, period.

Because, no matter what many people may think, to be able to sew and make clothing is a skill not to be taken lightly.  Think about it,  it is one of the skills,  that given an apocalyptic situation would be needed right up there with food and building shelter.

  1. Hear hear! Sorry I was not there for the rally...Really do hope it was well attended. This society's gonna have its wake-up call one way or another; choosing the terms for it would be better-

  2. Wow Paul, thanks! I wrote the date wrong! It's actually the 21st!

    Thanks for catching me on this one ! I've re-posted, and corrected the info.

    Thank you so for reading this blog and giving your input, I would've missed it otherwise and that would've been bad...
