Or is he just trying to ingratiate himself with Red State Texans? Link
I admired him at first thinking he was a job creator. Now I grow wary of him.
It wouldn't surprise me if he took a run at the presidency one day. He's already an Oligarch of some influence so he could have his cake and eat it too if he were also president. Not to mention his wacky suicide mission to mars where he has solicited volunteers for the certain to be disastrous mission.
He's done some interesting things, or perhaps better described as stunts.
Back when I was dumber than I am at present I thought if a guy was good and successful at organizing a business, he would probably be good at managing the country successfully too (Ross Perot). At that time, I didn't consider that could be somewhat equal to the original description of fascism or corporatocracy. The US is somewhat a corpocracy as is since the candidates are often financed by corporations.
The concept has been used in explanations of bank bailouts, excessive pay for CEOs, as well as complaints such as the exploitation of national treasuries, people, and natural resources. It has been used by critics of globalization, sometimes in conjunction with criticism of the World Bank or unfair lending practices, as well as criticism of free trade agreements. Corporate rule is also a common theme in dystopianscience-fiction media. Wiki
The Orange Menace and a few of his predecessors have proven to me that a greedy, unethical successful business person will continue to be such. They may even expand these negative qualities once elected to office, instead of being a public servant. My naive .02.
Musk has an 18 year old child who wants to change their name and gender and sever all ties with Musk. Happy Father’s Day, Elon. It’s not easy to make your kids hate you too. Another stunning accomplishment in your career, eh?
Mr. Twitter free speech asshole just fired a number of SpaceX employees who dared to say SpaceX needed to distance itself from Musk and his antics. Musk is driving qualified employee candidates away from SpaceX and Musk didn’t like it being said out loud.
So free speech for Musk. No free speech for others if he doesn’t agree with the content.
The imagery of him smoking a blunt with Joe Rogan. ha ha wtf did I see?
Like? When wasn’t he a POS? I’ve always been disgusted by this dough boy, so infatuated with his own life. His children with their fucked up names, and his crazy ass wife.
He’s a Libertarian. He made his money with Thiel. Total douche. He’s always been a corporatist slimebucket. He’s anti-worker. He’s anti-tax for corporations and rich people. He’s just a Republican that’s fine with abortion and weed. He’s an absolute vile piece of excrement. Always has been. He’s now (and possibly always was) a raging narcissist because of his sycophants online. He get a daily hard on from his herd of incels retweeting his shit and tanking the markets. He’s a dangerous pile of trash. All he cares about is making sure he won’t have to pay taxes on his unearned income.
He has always been a libertarian which is just on the other side of conservatism—the fascist side.
OK scrap the prez idea. I forgot he's a south African.
