Birds of a feather

I think we can create lots of jobs for members of our extended American family just by buying more American made cars, shoes, shirts, belts, and other consumer products.  Over the past two years, I have been encouraging everyone I know to do just that.  It is always great to discover kindred spirits who share my passion on this subject.  People like Roger Simmermaker, Todd Lipscomb, and Sarah Mazzone.  I recently met, at least on the telephone, a gentleman who is also very concerned about reviving American manufacturing and creating jobs for Americans.

His name is Alex Bogusky, and he is a very interesting fellow.  Alex worked at a well-known advertising firm, Crispin Porter + Bogusky, but left the firm in 2010 to focus on a host of subjects he feels strongly about.  One of those was MadeMovement, a marketing agency in Boulder, CO that is putting its shoulder into the renaissance of American manufacturing.

What I wanted to specifically bring to you is a great video that Alex put together that expresses everything I have been blathering about for the past two years.  Alex is able to get my message across in under four minutes.  I really encourage you to watch the video and to take Alex’s pledge.

I doubt Alex and I are related by birth, but we share the same passion: creating jobs for members of our extended American family.  So I encourage you to join us in this effort by buying consumer products made by members of our extended American family the next time you go shopping.
