Musk has been known in the past to "pull up the ladder" once he is finished using it. I read an article about him and they mentioned this but I hadn't seen anything about it since then. This doesn't surprise me.
came out about how he treated an employee who wanted to leave work early to go to the birth of his child.
Nevadan's are on the Hook for Billions in Tax Give A Ways to this Guy. This is money that should be used to fix our 47 th placed Education system.
But,when the likes of Adelson,Riffkin,Wynn and other Casino operators run your Government,this is your picture.
more to the people they want to help and less, more like courtesy donations, to the party they don't like, to keep the doors open and their phone calls taken. Apparently Musk donates fairly evenly but lightly. In any case, at this time Republicans are in power ("courtesy" of stupid and feckless voters and nonvoters who say they support liberal progressive government but didn't vote it), so most businesses need to keep workable relationships going.
How many times have you seen adversaries who despise each other shaking hands and smiling at each other on TV? Doesn't exactly mean they're on the same team.
It's a reminder that none of these business people are on our side. Ever. Even if they say things that sound nice or maybe donate to some nice charities sometimes. Elon Musk is a corporate billionaire, which means he is on team corporate billionaire. If he thought about our needs, he wouldn't donate to the GOP, because doing so hurts us. But he doesn't care, and it serves his interest, so he does it. Same reason the rest of them do.
in spite of your words. Reducing reality to one-dimensional good and bad, an "our team versus their team" world, is a dangerously foolish self indulgence. Trumpsters are so self mind-fucked that they couldn't fix the nation's way out of a paper bag. They're not our model.
Of course we desperately need to get money out of politics. That's obviously necessary if democracy is to survive. "Not a damned dime!" should be our mantra.
But until we do, a full range of people from very good to terrible villains are working with the systems that exist now. We know that because this is the real world.
I wrote to him and his office often.I wanted him to explain how the ACA would work for me, a simple request, never an acknowledge or answer... And if you are paying attention, he seriously cannot put two words together..a real bad fit for public speaking. We should all be so successful without any real talent for our jobs...a serious post turtle. A Henchman.
He's a complete narcissist. Fuck Elon.
