I encourage you to be patriotic buyers by selecting higher quality, USA Made garments. Statistics indicate if every
American cared enough to buy just one USA Made garment per year, the impact would be nearly $9 billion. That creates an amazing amount of jobs for just one article of clothing per

The GOP continues to adhere to the theory of supply side economics, which is to give money to society’s top echelons – people and groups who have no urgent material needs. For 30 years, we have
heard that reducing taxes on the rich will:
1. Result in direct investment of wealth in supply to produce goods, services and jobs
2. Stimulate so much new economic activity that even the lower tax rate will bring in enough revenue to pay for the tax cut
3. Eliminate government debt
The truth is that for the last 30 years absolutely every large-scale forecast made by promoters of supply side economics failed – without major exceptions.
On the other hand, the opposing theory, demand side economics, which is putting money in the hands of the middle class, proves to have a greater turnover of that
money. Instead of the money adding wealth to the top one percent’s portfolio, the money will be spent, and re-spent and re-spent many times to truly stimulate the economy.
Effective legislators must understand that government should outspend its revenues in recessionary times, directing high-velocity stimulus toward the middle class.
Then in good economic times, government should use adequate revenues to build up reserves. The Pharaoh of Egypt learned this lesson in the Biblical story of Joseph’s dream of the seven fat cows and
the seven lean cows.
It is common sense. Supply side economics has failed after being tried repeatedly for the last three decades. Let’s use common sense and demand side economics to
bring our economy back.
We have a heavy footprint already here in our country. But we can make individual decisions that will affect the footprint of the future.
Do you buy endangered wood products or insist on cultivated wood products that are raised sustainably? Do you hunt or fish for only what you will eat and practice catch and
release? Do you buy at local farmers markets? Do you support American workers by buying made in the USA products?
It is your choice whether you work with the resources you have or deplete the resources meant for future generations.
Think locally to have an impact globally. Our eyes must be focused ahead...our mission must be to protect the environment and our lifestyle for tomorrow. It is your choice and your responsibility
to take small actions that take root and grow.
