Ford Launches “Project Apollo” to Build Respirators

Using as a backdrop the film Field of Dreams starring Kevin Kostner this is a great gesture and let’s hope they won’t be needed.

My Dad was the supervisor of the wiring of the command module, important for a guy who only had a high school diploma.

I can remember when he was promoted to the supervisor only to have it taken back for him because he hadn’t graduated high school.

I figured out how to get him into high school on a bet with him and we both graduated the same year.

The rest as the say is history. P.S. How’s it going up in Heaven Dad? I miss you.

See the basis of the story here.

Kevin Costner, actor and Academy Award-winning director, made the trip to watch his alma mater. … Despite his roles in the baseball movies “Field of Dreams” and “Bull Durham,” Costner didn’t play baseball at Fullerton.

But he’s a longtime follower of the game and took a baseball class at Fullerton that Garrido taught.

There are industries that helped spread the Wuhan Virus in America, but are at the front of the line in demanding a bailout while doing zero to help.

And there are other industries that not at the front of the bailout line this time around, but actually are helping.

Ford Motor Co. plans to build respirators, ventilators and face shields in partnership with its UAW workforce, manufacturing company 3M and GE Healthcare to aid medical workers as the coronavirus pandemic threaten to overwhelm their supply.

Officials on a conference call said they’re working to begin production in a matter of days or weeks. 

In addition, Ford plans to produce up to 100,000 face shields per week, also in Michigan.

Roughly 75,000 of these shields are expected to be finished this week, and more than 100,000 face shields per week will be produced at Ford subsidiary Troy Design and Manufacturing’s facilities in Plymouth, Mich.

Known internally as “Project Apollo” and inspired by the quick-thinking ingenuity of the Apollo 13 space mission, executives on Tuesday said Ford workers plan to use car parts and factory tools to help get some equipment out to doctors, nurses and first responders as early as this week. 

It’s odd that they would have picked Apollo 13 as it was a failed mission.

Apollo 13 was to be the third mission to land on the Moon. An explosion in one of the oxygen tanks crippled the spacecraft during flight and the crew was forced to orbit the Moon and return to the Earth without landing.

Ford said it initially would be able to make up to 1,000 respirators per month, helping 3M boost production of them tenfold.

If you buy the projected extrapolation numbers, which are hopefully wrong, this may end up being a drop in the bucket.

But it still means lives saved.

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.
