HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, JANUARY 31, 2014 SBDC UPCOMING EVENTS MEPto showcase products made in New Mexico By CLAUDIA SERRANO/New Mexico Manufacturing Extension Partnership The New Mexico Manufac- turing Extension Partnership (MEP) is taking the "buy local" concept to a broader level by pro- viding a showcase for products made in New Mexico...and for their manufacturers. MEP's "New Mexico Made" initiative pro- motes companies who produce goods in our state. This week's article outlines the benefits to participants, especially small manufacturers. The initiative aims to pro- mote the companies that create and fabricate goods in New Mexico, where manufacturing is a $5.9 billion industry represent- ing 7.4 percent of the total gross state product, according to the National Association of Manu- facturers. It does so by certifying quali- fying businesses on the New Mexico Made website directory, raising the profile of the state's manufacturers and giving partici- pating businesses access to pro- motions and networking oppor- tunities. High-Profile Producers New Mexico MEP launched' the project to give the state's manufacturers an online platform to showcase the products they make and to give New Mexican consumers a place to find and learn more about products made where they live.

Maybe I kin make a few laws myself! What the hell is that? Obama may be your president, but he shur as hell ain't muh king!! I'm sorry, there is so much of this crap running thru my head it's hard to sort it out. First, all these 2 bit piloticians are sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America not AmeriKa! Even your NM piloticians have forgotten that fact! Why do they vote straight democrat on most every bill? Is it they just go along- knowing they are breaking their pledge to uphold the Constitution? Well is it?? Folks I keep thinking I are missing sumpin, so after "King" Obama made his statement the other day about his pin and fone, I just had to go back and read the Constitution and Bill of Rights again (for the 200 h time). I din' found nuttin, no where that gives these sactamoneous jerks the right to just make laws, edicts, executive orders, etc. I'm told that "all" presidents have done it but show me where it is authorized. NOT THERE!! Then we gets ale Prince Harry Reid, he done broke 224 years of protocol by giving him & his minions (democrats) the right to select judges with no more than 51 votes (nuclear op- tion) Your NM senators went along with it, "good boys", Just www.smithfordlordsburg, com NHeidwalgo County Association Member Hidalgo County Herald (USPS It's also a place where busi- nesses can exchange information, build professional networks and learn how to become more profit- able and competitive. New Mexico MEP plans to profile a different registered company each week in the organization's newsletter and on the MEP website. Companies that register for the free service can post a profile that contains the company's logo, contact information, description and photos. They'll also receive certificates and stamps that iden- tify them as part of the New Mexico Made project, and they can use these on their company websites and product packaging to underscore the company's home-grown credentials. Profile creation on the website is available to all manu- facturers, not just the companies that have worked with MEP. All that's required is a Dunn & Bradstreet registration number. MEP will even help non-regis- tered manufacturers get regis- tered. The service is especially valuable to small manufacturers that don't maintain a c'ompany website. By having a profile page, they are visible in cyberspace to the growing numbers of busi- nesses and consumers who re- search and shop for products online. Working Elsewhere New Mexico Made is part of a nationwide effort to promote do away with our nations docu- ments! As democrat congressman Conyers said when asked about a bill meeting constitutional mus- ter, "We don't go by that up here anymore"!! There ya are!! Back in 2005 the Republi- cans threatened to use what they call nuclear option, here is what some of your favorite democrats said back then, not their exact words but close. Democrat sena- tor Shumer called the proposed loss of the filibuster a constitu- tional "crisis". Warning "the checks & balances which have been at the core of this Republic, are about to be evaporated" Democrat Dianne Feinstein sena- tor of Calif, said ending the fili- buster "will turn the Senate into a body that could have its rules broken at anytime by a majority of Senators unhappy with any position taken by the minority, it begins with judicial nominations, next will be executive appoint- ments, & then Legislation." Then Senator Obama, Demo- crat from ILL, said an alteration of the filibuster rule "would change the character of the Sen- ate forever" creating what he called "majoratarian" absolute power. That's just not what the founders had intended" Ain't it strange that all 3 of the above praise what they done did? Hum Now they can completely by pass the laws of the land. Of course "King" Obama done broke that quite a few times already with changing immigration law to let Illegal student go to college here. Then at least 17 times changing his very own affordable care act. O well the Democrats will tell you "It's the law of the Land" when republicans say it needs to be changed or done away with. It Kaint be changed. Income in- equality? You might try going to work. If I were jealous of some- one else's money, that's what I would do, It ain't yourn or Presi- dents Obama's. Why doesn't he give all his .millions away? Why?? Whut the hell is King Obamas promised zones? Hell don't we all live in the USA, We shud all be in the promised zones!! Follow the Constitution!!
