Obviously, Neraus is the capo di tutti capi of all of Sicily, the boot part included.

His real estate scams had earned us a massive fortune. Good man to do business with.

Envy? Do you think slaves being resentful of slave owners is "envy" as well? I don't want to be a slave owner same as I don't want to be a billionarie slavedriver.

Quote:
in order to do what you want to do is the only reasonable reason why you would want to have a lot of money at all - To take a bath in it like Scrooge McDuck? To feel secure? To buy a lot of shares? To be happy you have a lot of money?


All those things are things that you want to do. Anything yo voluntary do is doing "what you want" by definition. So your token is doing everything with money is OK by definition - even coups on sovereign governments like Bolivia for mining business interests, which Musk justified.

You are the one who doesn't have idea about what propaganda is. Selling stocks to pay taxes *that's he's legally obliged to pay for anyways* isn't an humanitarian action. FFS

"Tesla" is a big sham and an affront to the memory of Nikola TEsla. These "DLC cars" charge you thousands of dollars to software unlock fuctionality that is built in to the physical car. Plus the massive amount of rare metals needed for the batteries means they are not ecological at all.

Musk's lies have no end, remember the "hyperloop" which is now just a tunnel. A very bad, small, single-lane tunnel.
BoliviaKeep in mind Musk has been Trump's biggest opponent. And he didn't get Lithium from the coup. Meanwhile, Bolivia has a socialist president again.
Then Tesla is no sham. Tesla has been about a lot more than cars - it's basically about the storage of energy; if the human society is to function exclusively on renewable energy, we need to solve the energy storage problem, because most renewable sources are not constantly there. Tesla showed that it's possible to do electric mobility, and the did it single-handedly, including the development of batteries (which is only the first generation) and the build-up of a net of recharging stations.

About the taxes you don't seem to understand what actually happened: the online discussion was about rich people being unfairly favored with tax legislation, meaning they have ways to reduce their tax payments (ask Donald Trump about that). However, when you sell shares with a profit, that profit is taxed IMMEDIATELY (you can deduct losses made when you sold shares with a loss in the past, but that's it). So with making profits from share sales there is no way to get past taxes. Musk simply put the suggestion to vote whether he should share half his Tesla portfolio, 10% of the whole company. From the point of Tesla start to Musk selling stock the win is about 35.000% and for the sale he had to pay, I think 1.6 billion $ in taxes.

For things you want to do, we are not talking about buying an expensive car or something, we talk about founding a company for production of electric cars. Or buying a social media outlet when you want to.

Lastly, you'd have to love a guy who challenges Putin to a judo fight.

ROFL, that judo tweet was hilarious and the continuation response to the training offer from Kadyrov as well.

Amazing how people create alternative reality before something ever happens.

Look, he said he is against censorship which goes beyond the law, that's all. Such censorship massively occurred since things didn't to the "correct way", like Trump winning in 2016, Brexit, rise of patriotic right-wing movements and such. There is nothing at this moment which suggests he will do this or that, let the man one chance then come b!tch!ng when you got some ground.


I try extra hard to not crap on him because (I think) I know where this is going, but lots of people will be led like lambs, shackled on the land their forefathers conquered.

That said, Elon needs to fire his block trader, they killed the stock to get $8B in 2 days.. I could promise him 0.5% better execution, I'd take only half of the savings!

JJ, I always knew you were an apologist, so I'm not engaging with some subjectivist humbug about judo fights, and dancing around the issue of the extremely unethical things Musk has done for money, and with money, including his involvement with mining cartels.

Instead, I'm just leaving a short documentary on the person that killed more people in the history of mankink. Hitler? Stalin? Mao? No, just the "Innovator and entrepreneur" that put lead on gasoline to "Improve performance of the industry"

And by the way, as a corollary, [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9dnN82DsQ2k&pp=ugMICgJlcxABGAE%3D]Massive lithium-ion batteries are not only anti-ecological, but also lithium is extremely scarce on earth's surface - and there may be less than 15 years worth of supplies for it.[/ur] Meaning of course, from a purely scientific-economic perspective,  "tesla" tech was doomed from the start, since de-carbonizing the planet's energy supply with lithium batteries is numerically impossible by a factor of hundreds.

Don't be ridiculous. Thomas Midgley not only developed tetraethyllead but also the chlorofluorocarbons that really made a serious effort to destroy the ozone layer, so that guy really had a bit of bad luck with his inventions.

I just don't see any good reason to blame HIM. You could just as well blame whoever invented the internal combustion engine or the steam engine or the airplane or, in fact, EVERYTHING that lead to any kind of environmental poisoning. The whole chemical industry is guilty.
And what about large-scale lifestock farming and the
clearing of the rainforest that comes with it? What about that?

But what you write about batteries and Tesla is the bigest nonsense. I quote myself:

Quote:

Energy storage media will be necessary in the future - and not to fuel cars. We'll need them to store the energy we gain from renewable sources - and Lithium won't be part of that solution, obviously, because, lo and behold, it's of course a known fact that lithium won't be a long-time solution. Which is why OTHER technologies are reseached. And quite a few.

What was your actual point?

come on, man. seriously. tv? do you know WHY they call it "the boob tube"? tv is propaganda central; that's all you're going to get from it. watching and believing tv news is a fast track to idiocy. they're not INFORMING you. they are TELLING YOU WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO THINK. and what they want you to think, is almost always geared towards some globalist agenda. they'll tell you stories about how some 3rd world people is suffering, and they'll tug at your heart strings; manipulating you through your feelings. what they WON'T tell you, is WHY that 3rd world countrys' people are suffering. what they'll tell you, is some bs, to get you emotionally invested in either parting with some of your cash (removing power from you), or allowing you to think it's OK for them to illegally emigrate to your host nation, where they will further drain your country's resources; weakening your country and everyone in it through racial replacement/culture clash.

i could go on for hours about tv. my mom watches it; she's like the people here: willfully clueless.

bottom line, when you watch tv, and any major news source, know that they are attempting to manipulate you, outright lying, or both. the people who run tv, OWN the "news". they OWN the people employed by them. they GET EVERY SAY ON WHAT AIRS, AND WHAT DOESN'T. they FILTER what they don't want you to know or think.

clips they show you on tv are editted to fit whatever narrative they're going for. you literally cannot rely on them for anything honest. even their tv shows are full of propaganda. it's obscene.

the only things i'll watch on tv (and this is only if i'm eating and have nothing else to watch atm), are do-it-yourself informative shows (cooking, carpentry, painting, etc), or kids shows (because some of them have very minimal propaganda). yes, even kids shows contain their globalist propaganda. it's snowing vile, and i despise most of tv. i'll watch the tv news from time to time to see how they're spinning what's going on, so i have a head's up on what the public are being told/manipulated. but i do that with all media.

I only watch the news cuz i have to follow the market.
Elon musk actually does move the market because telsa is like 1% of the S&P and is the only company that has a valuation that can disappear overnight.
