See the remarkable small business that is making a very real difference in Detroit

Glenn explained the theme of Wednesday’s Glenn Beck Program was the art of living without fear, and he kicked off the show by highlighting the remarkable story one Detroit-based small business that has managed to make the most of an otherwise dire situation. Meet Shinola, the ‘made in America’ watch company that chose to open a factory in Detroit with this mantra in mind: There’s not just history in Detroit, there is a future.

    I wish them the best, the Progressives will do all they can to compromise and crush them.

    I wish them all the success in the world. I would never live anywhere near Detroit.

    You would never see me in Detroit.

    I can see some intelligent behind-the-scenes thinking here — where else can you go to find a populace without jobs, yet have skills and ability and desire to be trained to do a good job? I would bet they looked at the worker pool that existed there for the taking. Of course, with the millions out of work across the nation, most anywhere would have worked, but Detroit may be a bit more concentrated with unemployed.

    Just wondering out loud. Strong possibility, I think.

    Another thing that struck me — does anyone else recognize Shinola as a boot polish? Does that date me?

    I have never been to Detroit and don’t know that I would go, but this is a start for us coming back and getting our nation going again. We must support this company for them to make it, because you know that the left will do everything they can to make them fail. Good for them….maybe this will encourage more companies to start up.
