Biden: "Ok, we are freezing all subsidies to electric car makers immediately."

Musk: "NO NOT THAT WAY"

The Biden infrastructure bill is funding electric car charging stations  across the country that will compete with Tesla's network. Wonder why Elon doesn't like Biden's infrastructure spending.

Well, once you've climbed the ladder and have no further use for it because you've gone as high as it will allow you to go, there's really no reason to leave that ladder in place. In fact, it's dangerous to leave it there because tall ladders are inherently unstable and could fall over, causing significant injury to those who might be assembled on the ground around it. By raising it off the ground and storing it safely up top, you are actually creating much safer conditions for those who were never able to make the climb and must remain below. And, as an added bonus, the ladder remains available for you to lower if there's ever a need for it.

Actually Elon wouldn't care that much, because it would hurt his competitors more at this time. However, yeah, Elon is a lying farking hypocrite.

The word "Slams" has become so meaningless in media, and they just won't stop.

The Dem Congress is sort of trying that, by tying higher subsidies to unionization (which Elon is obviously wildly against).

But Emperor Manchin is against paying the plebes so that provision will get axed.

Elon Musk is a walking advertisement for piñata economics.
 
2021-12-08 9:25:29 AM  
These credits should have never existed. They were free money to the upper middle class. Musk wants to do away with the EV credits because Tesla has used up all of theirs and leaving them in place allows his competitors to have an advantage over his company. A classic example of Fark You, Got Mine.
 
2021-12-08 9:26:38 AM  
You're free to fit the bills yourself, Musk. You'll be a hero to every other rich asshole in this country.
 
2021-12-08 9:28:06 AM  
"Musk said the government should act more like a sports referee than a player on the field."

But most sports leagues find they do need to put their thumbs on the scales with things like salary caps and limiting team sizes so that the ultra rich owners don't just buy up all the talent to eliminate the competition.  If the wealthy elite sports team owners need socialism to create a fair game, what about the rest of us?

Elon musk speaks out against government limiting subsidies on electric on non-union-built vehicles.

Govt : If we're going to underwrite the electric car industry, we should ensure that workers get a fair cut.

Union-buster Musk : The government should stop subsidizing all electric cars.
 
2021-12-08 9:29:41 AM  
I bet Elon thinks Biden has a cult of personality.

Without the slightest hint of irony.

Yeah, better get rid of those subsidies before his competition gets to use them.

They're paid to write like two sentences then copy/paste a bunch of tweets. Why would they bother?

Seriously just read an "article" that was two sentences and then a few tweets, without even enough explanation to understand what the hell they were talking about.

Does anybody even grok what he is trying to say here?

"The value of that is a small amount of value for all citizens but it would be inefficient to go and collect $10 from every citizen for a Mars probe. Therefore, it is better to have the government do something like a heavy science program, rather than try to collect small amount of money from everyone," he said.

Don't try to tax everybody for a Mars probe, but spend a lot of money on a "heavy science" program instead?  What?

He's basically giving an excuse why his space program isn't going to create a Mars probe, i.e. no way to get the rubes to pay for it.

Pretty sure he's saying that instead of him charging everyone in America to build his penile compensation device that the government should, then give him the money and call it 'science' because what he's doing is good for humanity and we should all pay for the privilege of him doing things.

Heavy science=things Elon likes and feels he deserves $ for.

Not science=things Elon doesn't like.
