Tesla's California electric car factory resumed operations Monday in violation of Alameda County's shelter-in-place order as CEO Elon Musk tweeted: "If anyone is arrested, I ask that it only be me."

You didn't enjoy him on the JRE podcast? He was putting up some amazing Covid... facts? ideas? I have no clue if they're true or not. "The average age of a Covid death is older than the average US life expectancy."

Him explaining his son's new name was a great clip. git was crazy to find out this is his 7th (-1) son. 5 were confirmed IVF, so he's been lucky rolling the dice on the two naturals.

@#2 ... "The average age of a Covid death is older than the average US life expectancy." ...

So, Mr Musk wants to actively try to lower the life expectancy in the United States?

imo, Mr Musk is playing games with peoples' lives by putting making money ahead of the health of the people who work for him and around him.

He's saving the planet from Man Made Climate Change. Is this not important anymore?

Even if true, that argument rests on the very questionable premise that as long as you live to 78 it doesn't matter how you die.

As to Musk, i loved his first appearance on Rogan, but the Coronavirus pandemic has exposed him as just another hack. He should go build his cars in countries that allow slave labor.

I hope cops do arrest him - and treat him like he's black.

I do not conflate the two issues as you seem to do.


I do like some aspects of what Mr Musk is doing in the auto industry.

However, some of his instances of egregious behavior (e.g., calling a rescuer of children trapped in a cave a pedophile) are beyond disgusting.

Thick sarcasm. Giant battery luxury cars don't save the planet.

I prefer economic and societal collapse. That will surely reduce the death rate.

Put Elon in a holding tank at San Quentin, under the guise of the Alameda County pokey being chock-full of miscreants already...

I like Musk but he should obey the Covid restrictions. On a side note, not to many Teslas in that photo.

Should not be. $54k Average Sale Price on Model 3. Tesla pays lowest in industry factory wages and Cali cost of housing is high.

I have a feeling people work for Tesla + SpaceX for the resum bullet because as mentioned earlier, their wages, working conditions, work/life balance are below other industry experiences.

Lol....but of course...

Musk: "Now all you other low-life peons

Make me some ------ money!"

Open up too fast and you definitely will get your wish.

The virus don't care what tasty flesh you offer it.

Without testing tracing and it and/or a cure then economic and societal collapse is exactly what you will get if you try and pretend this virus dies not exist and is not dangerous.

Speaking of "dies".

If anyone dies does he also hope it is him?
