Another billionaire upset he's not getting more government cheese.

I'm surprised he didn't mention MLK, too.

More importantly - it took this long for our intelligence agencies to realize that maybe, just maybe, using russia to launch our spy satellites might not be a good idea?

He's 100% right, and one of the few billionaires who's actually creating jobs and new opportunities.

He is, putting things in orbit should be open bid contracts.

Found this funny FTFA:
Citing the situation in Ukraine, the Canadian government cancelled a June 19 launch of a military satellite that was set to blast off from a Russian spaceport in Kazakhstan. Officials say they are seeking a new launch provider. The response from Moscow was angry, as opposed to the shrugs they offered after other sanction announcements. "The Canadians screwed things up," Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said Friday. "They refused to launch the satellite and admitted that it was a military one, despite earlier assurances of its civilian purpose."

Musk is from South Africa which is right next to Kenya, so we can totally trust him.

On the scale of rich/powerful people being evil (or at least their image), I think it goes something like this:

Pope Francis ---------- Koch Brothers

I would argue that musk is far closer to the Pope. He creates jobs, does research that may one day get humanity off of earth to prevent our extinction, and offering to suck the sweet government at a 25% rate compared to ULA...

I really don't get your hate...
