Dunno about you. But the US government had a lot of time to think about all of this and take action and didn't. It's not 3M or any other business' responsibility to call the shots. Capitalism is failing america, go figure.

9 line apparel on their switch to making masks, they hint at someone running up the cost of the material for making masks, which sounds a lot like price gouging during a natural disaster, hope the DOJ looks into it.

If only those who took the time to applaud the NHS heeded the advice to stay home to help the NHS , the "lockdown" appears to be solely limited to retail outlets.

How on earth can you all direct your ire at 3M? If you don't want them acting like a business then you need to use DPA plain and simple. The reason I say fake outrage is because it is misplaced.

You cannot claim you are a capitalist and get upset over this behavior. Or you can, but you just look like a fool.


I have been at odds with 3M and their overcharging of the government for many years, they lobbied to get standards that they patented enacted and overcharged everyone for years. There are many other companies that have similar products for half the price in the stores. This is not about capitalism, America helped this company grow a lot, if it was a different company that was doing this that did not do that kind of stuff, I would say nothing, but I was always aware that this company was given favoritism.

I wish the money which has suddenly appeared had been used years ago on the NHS, whether that have been better pay for staff or new hospitals I would not have minded

Nightingale Hospital opens at London's ExCel centre

How NHS Nightingale was built in just nine days

I am taken aback by how this ability to fund the NHS has just happened overnight, shows that the rainy day fund must have been overflowing, more so since politicians cant fund their second homes/birdbath/pensions funds anymore

You are right, capitalism is failing America. Thirty years ago the big corporations would bend over backwards to help the American people in a time like this. Monopolies were crushed to keep the big corporations from getting too powerful. I never would have expected 3M to be like this. They used to be All for America and got rewarded for being that way. Time to take away their ability to do business in America, and other countries need to be aware that this company will not support their countries either.

That is my gripe. If a company was a Canadian company and doing this to them, I would be all up in arms against that company even though I am not a Canadian. I would support the Canadian people and never buy that companies product. But I am old school, I believed a countries businesses should be loyal to them. What if we were at war with Russia, would this company be selling supplies to Russia?

Go capitalists!


Yes! GO CAPITALISTS !
NO government-owned socialist firms volume produce N95 masks, ANYWHERE !
No socialist government anywhere has produced ANY new vaccine or drug to treat this virus


Actually, it was a CCP-socialist government that LIED about COVID 19, and thus CAUSED this global pandemic, and the DEAD that will soon be in the 100s of thousands !! And you want the US, the whole planet to be socialist ? Why ? Do you ever reflect on cause and effect ?

The dead! No bid deal, right ? That is just socialism maintaining its reputation for death and misery.

Socialism is only good for abject failures like AOC whose true value is barmaid and cleaning toilets - the only way she ever could get more money was by becoming an apparachik, too stupid and lazy to EARN herself more money.

Look up Venezuela
Look up Cuba

LOOK UP PolPot !

... or better yet, look at the socialistic UN, whose WHO only pandered to socialist /communist China, and whose "recommendations" CAUSED more DEATH !!
- Same during H1N1
- Same during MERS
- Same during Ebola

How many times, how many dead will it take for you to realize AND ACCEPT this is a FAILURE ?
SOCIALISM DOES NOT WORK
NEVER HAS!

Socialism - unbroken record of 100 + years of poverty, human misery, genocide and failure across the planet means nothing, right ?

I wouldn't be a bit surprised if China were to sell their
used PPE supplies to the U.S.,spread the virus and take
us down at the same time!

This is why Trump should have leveraged his wartime production powers and commandeered these corporations in the first place. The incompetence is staggering.


I think he wanted to see who was respectable and who wasn't.

Asking instead of telling people what to do is also a sign of competent leadership.

I guess that depends on what you're to lead, a sales team to win a sales competition or a medic trying to lead a triage team.

There is no ambiguity in this situation. You either have your country's best interests at heart or you don't.

Tis nothing new it would seem

Hitler’s American Friends: Henry Ford and Nazism


Certainly, Ford was far from the only American businessman who was enticed by Nazi Germany. His rival—General Motors—had a German division of its own and manufactured aircraft parts for the Luftwaffe.


Companies care not who or where the money comes from, profit rules for CEO's


Yet Ford’s story is unique not just because he did extensive business in the Third Reich, but because of the influence he held over Hitler’s other American friends in the United States

Because a President Hillary would have handled this better ?

Trump acted within days of being notified by the CDC

Hillary was part of the Obama Administration that did NOTHING for 6 MONTHS for H1N1 !!!
Same for MERS and same for Ebola




Recall that Obama strongly opposed quarantine for Ebola - calling it racist.

The US only escaped a genocide through sheer luck


And with respect to Hillary's handling of a humanitarian crisis, even a MUCH smaller crisis such as the $10Billion of ( stolen?) Haiti earthquake relief funds SHE managed, the Haitian Senate President in charge has a STRONG view on her POOR performance and GROSS INCOMPETENCE

But hey, don't let KNOWN HISTORICAL FACTS get in the way of your "fantasy" narrative...

So distracting....so false....

Based on his words and actions up to this point he doesn't. His interest lies in his ego, his reelection bid, and the health of big corporations.

What a disgusting statement. You are clearly biased and ill-informed.

Obama emptied the nation's cupboards. He hates the United States. He tried to destroy us in every way.

Now we have a president who has filled our cupboards and put our enemies on notice.

You clearly hate our country. You will not give credit where it is due. Trump was on this pandemic issue in November with an EO to address the deficiencies in our nation's response to pandemics.

Behind the scenes the appropriate agencies have been updating policies and procedures and working on topping off the national stockpile as it relates to medical equipment and supplies.

I could say the same of you.

I'm just listen to him right now twisting in the wind, spinning his lies, slapping himself on the back with self adulation and blaming governor requesting access to the national stockpile, still claiming it's the federal government's stuff, not the states stuff.
