Rally Around The Campaign Music!

Last post concerned blue-collar working for a living music. Different songs and bands. Got to thinking...hmmm...what are the songs 2016 President candidates are spinning and playing at their campaign rallies. I have heard "You Can't Always Get What You Want" by Rolling Stones, "Revolution" The Beatles, "Tiny Dancer" Elton John, "We're Not Gonna Take It" by Twisted Sister played at Donald Trump Rally's on C-Span. Bernie Sanders played a David Bowie song "Starman" at the end of a televised rally. Bernie Sanders recorded a record album years ago. For a look at Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, and other former 2016 presidential candidates song choices, read pieces below.
President Richard Nixon played accordion and was an accomplished pianist. President Bill Clinton played Tenor Sax on The Arsenio Hall Show. Mike Huckabee is a bass player in a group called Capitol Offense, and Martin O'Malley is  in a Celtic band called "O'Malley's March". Businessman and Entrepreneur Donald J. Trump is the former star and creator of the long running hit Tv series "The Apprentice" soon to be starring Arnold Schwartzeneggar, former Governor of California, movie star and World Famous bodybuider.
Off Topic Prediction: Even more future politicians and Presidents from Business, Media (First was Ronald Reagan Radio,  Movies, Television, California Governor, U.S. President 1981-1989) and possibly Sports.  "The times they are a changing" to quote Bob Dylan.

Why Manufacturing Matters!

American Flag Animated Gif

Just One Manufacturing Job Repatriated back to the United States provides a good paycheck for a person and their family. Spending creates consumption, you know, buying things. Creating more jobs for others (that 1 job becomes roughly 7 or 8 jobs in other areas of our economy, due to that one paycheck's expenditure. Strengthening small businesses, entrepreneurs, the backbone of our country) and their employees. Creating more work. More hiring. More jobs and More paychecks! Also, each paycheck pays into Social Security and Medicare, strengthening them for us and future citizens. When a person has a job, they feel good, positive and productive. The American Spirit is refreshed, revitalized and reinvigorated. Just One Job. What if Many Manufacturing Jobs were Brought Back?
