@#1 ... HE isnt too bright ...

Mr Musk is quite intelligent.

He is just motivated by making money more than anything else, you know, capitalism.

When's the last time YOU built a top of the line electric vehicle or sent astronauts or supplies to the International Space Station?

Elon musk is a self important turd. He just wants cheap slaves. The Chinese system gives workers no rights at all. Suicide nets and barred windows in factories to prevent suicides at Chinese companies are commonplace.

Has Tesla ever even turned a profit? If they have it's only with massive government subsidies.

Free markets for thee,not for me. Is his motto apparently.

He just loves the Chinese autocracy, it makes it easier to pollute and exploit without have to pay the actual costs of production.

Musk is a sponge,not an asset.

Yes the Chinese are good people. The regime, not so much.

Aren't businesses awesome? They love people so much! We should bail them out before regular unemployed folks. Trickle-down works for us all!

I know, we should have a businessman for President!

Preferably one who can't even run casinos profitably.

Elon is lucky to be living in America.

Had he been living in China, they would have stolen his technology as belonging to China.

Also. He should return the billions in subsidies he continuously receives.

elon, you are an idiot scamster.

i used to work in china. the huge company had like 25,000 people in 1 location. it would hire engineers right out of college. the new folks would be estatic as they were only children of peasant families who could start supporting their families. they would eagerly set to work. We only got paid monthly. First pay day they would like up to get paid. It wasn't issued. Why not? the company decided unilaterally that new hires didn't need to be paid for the first SIX months. it sucked, but what could they do> they were 1000s of miles from home and broke and their familes were broke. They gave that huge corporation a minimum of 6 months free work. On an individual scale such is shoking. when you start thinking about how many they pulled this crime on it is infuriating.

Yes, my contract "ended early" in part for asking about such practices.

Of course, elon likes china. china uses coerced/free/slave labor and he thinks he can profit off it. in the end he will be broke and china will have internalized much of his money.

never underestimate the greed of the western capitalist pig. :)

You can't ever criticize communist China or agree with those who do.

Trump could pull a Tienanmen Square on BLM protesters and you'd support it 100%.

Sure, because Chinese propagandists are constantly referencing the Tienanmen Square massacre perpetrated by the Chinese government on their own students!

Just think about how dumb you sound right now.

Congratulations, you built that!

Turns out Biden is campaigning on giving him far more subsidies, along with more vertical wealth transfer through buyer subsidies we've already spent $5 billion on.

Exactly what I've been saying. States, especially ones with huge Liberal cities, have been so privileged and entitled for so long that they have absolutely no idea what the real world is like. Unfortunately, what Musk doesn't know because he comes from money, is that those hard-working Chinese people don't have much option. They either work hard or they live in poverty, and I mean real poverty. They don't get phones, name-brand shoes, etc. and the government doesn't provide them a safety net so they can live in a separate housing from others. If China had US Liberals fighting for what they fight for in America, they would all end up missing (and that HAS happened so it can't be argued). Yet Liberals still love China only because it helps them hate America.

"Probably why he's attacking American protesters."

One day, I'd really like to see what it's like to be a black-and-white Liberal. Trump is going after looters and rioters, and protesters causing violence. But because it naturally impacts some peaceful protests, especially with so many going on, then it becomes a black-and-white "Trump hates protestors" message. And you completely ignore all the bad that is happening to innocent people because of the looters and rioters. I personally would feel ashamed and terrible for having that kind of viewpoint but one day maybe I can work really hard to be that partisan.

Classic projection.

Your love of Trump helps you hate your fellow Americans who are liberals, minorities, Muslims...
