GE WORKERS PROTEST: WE WANT TO BUILD VENTILATORS
Al Cannistras insight:

GE – LET THEM DO IT….  It was my privilege to work many years for a company that had a rich history in AMERICAN manufacturing. What I am sharing here is from WW2 (before my time thank you) but shared by folks that lived it. The primary plant in Chicago was converted to support the WAR EFFORT – munitions I believe – it used to make things for the kitchen – like can openers – we made millions of them, maybe more than anyone in the world. But there was a WAR to fight. We were AMERICAN. (This is the company story:  https://www.madeinchicagomuseum.com/single-post/ekco-products-co  Search term in the article “war years”)

 

GE – if your good folks want to build ventilators – LET THEM BUILD VENTILATORS – We ARE AMERICANS fighting a war 2020

The Man Who Builds Luxury Bomb Shelters for Paranoid One Percenters | VICE | United States

Robert Vicino believes the rich don't live on the same scale as ordinary people in today's society—so why should that change after the end of the world? For a mere $35,000, his company will make their apocalypse experiences truly swanky.
Al Cannistras insight:

we had bomb shelters when I was growing up - of course they did not look like this....   but, reality check assuming you survive (again, old memory while at school, go in the hallway, sit on the floor, cross your arms, and bend your head forward is going to do what?) - but if you do survive the blasts - what will you eventually come out to? and when?
