Default September rally. Dress up with attitude.

I just thought, if we all dress up formally and carry an item which reflects who we are and why we are in US. It should reflect the high skilled people we represent:

1. Computer Engineers can carry laptops
2. Doctors can dress in there uniform.
3. Nurses can do the same.

etc etc.

It'd good for the cameras, press and average citizens looking at us.

Default Carrying laptops on a rally...

Good luck with that...

The SJ rally in hot CA sun meant many folks turned up in shorts and jeans! Perhaps it reflects what "we Californians" think of "business casual" as.

It's be good in front of the press and average citizens looking at us.

we can be a bit formal and carry our laptops, stethoscopes, etc. etc.

YOU ARE RIGHT ITS A RALLY and NOT HALOWEEN PARADE. WE ARE SHOWING WHAT WE ARE and NOT PRETENDING , if you know what a haloween parade is.

SECONDLY, THE WAIT FOR GC IS MUCH MORE UNBEARABLE THEN TO TOLERATE FEW HOURS OF HOT WEATHER. Pls remember, in order to make our voices heard we need to show to everyone who has no clue what we are and what we go through.

my 2 cents

Carrying laptops and stethoscopes would make it look comical and / or self-aggrandizing. Just my opinion. Although I do think that wearing suits is a fine idea.

Default Suits ? - No way

Most of us have ordered IV T-shirts with State Logo... I feel the need to differentiate but wearing suits or carrying laptops makes no sense. If someone is going to meet Senators on 18th itself - he/she can switch to Business casual (may be slap a tie that time)
