Just before I scrolled down and saw that meme, I was thinking..

What type of fool thinks he can piss off more than half the world, without the fbi, nsa, cia etc backing him up.

If you want to turn the world upside down (like any Bond villain), your own security service will fail, the only somewhat safe method to take over the world is to either be elected to be head honcho, or become dictator, so you be can be protected effectively by state security.

And then I saw the meme.

Maybe space X is a ruse. It is really Virtucon, and the rockets are just practice runs so EM can escape to Mars when his global domination attempt fails.

You may not get it, but Zuck did.


"There was no censorship"

Dog - "Yes there was."

"There was no censorship"

Dog - "Yes there was, see this stuff from facebook? The FBI forced them to do it"

"That was the choice of facebook, based on warnings from the FBI"

Dog - "Nuh uh. See twitter?"

Elon releases information, reporter verifies it's a nothingburger and that they reviewed each items themselves before choosing to act on it.
  • Taibbi goes on to write, "Requests from both Donald Trump's White House and the Biden campaign were received and honored." He does not provide examples of tweets the Trump team flagged to Twitter.
  • Taibbi's report reveals requests from President Joe Biden's campaign in the days before the 2020 election for Twitter to remove tweets the campaign flagged. An email from a Twitter employee dated Oct. 24, 2020 includes six links to tweets. “More to review from the Biden team,"
Dog continues to bullshit "No No NO, none of that is what you think it means". Flynn is innocent. Hunter is guilty. Biden is guilty of being a Democrat and having a son. His son 'used' his name to gain influence. But let's ignore what Trump's family did. The information on the laptop is all real. Benghazi! Email!

You lost the beat a long time ago dog.

All donations are recorded. Multiple places state 40 million. Elon, per his usual methods, pulled a wild number out of his ass then moved straight to the "I'm right, prove a negative" bullshit.


Elon's insanity:
actual support of Democrat elections is probably over $1 billion. The money went somewhere, so where did it go?"

It didn't, so it can't be proven it didn't, so...... yeah. The old 'you can't prove a negative' game. I know you won't get this V^3, but others understand it.

Here's a hint. Every ban gets reviewed by people. It's not the algorithmmmmmmms. Code may identify possible violations through the use of particular phrases and keywords, but PEOPLE make the decision, in groups. You are so clueless it's painful to watch.

No, I'm saying that the Democrats/left have lost a tool for the suppression of conservative speech.
By which you mean disinformation can once again be the GOP PR strategy on Twitter.

Republicans are proudly touting their freedom to lie and maybe get rid of the Constitution.

Musk is following the script Trump proved so successful. Lie often enough about enough things, and people will either be gullible to believe a few of them or at least be confused and uncertain what the truth is. The difference was Trump was a real estate hustler. Nobody in the business world (except bankers) believed him. Musk's enterprises likely depend on a little more credibility. Presumably other people do most of the actual work, so his lies can be shoveled into a corner and ignored by those negotiating contracts or marketing products.

Dayton just started a trial of 5 electric city vehicles, including a cruiser (NPR local news this morning). I am curious how it will work. It sounds like single vehicles for the city's various uses, to see which ones might be useful. The radio didn't specify the manufacturers, possibly the Lordstown plant for city trucks. Their expectation is reduced maintenance will save the city about $100,0000 over the life of the vehicles, as I recall. The vehicles might have great potential for street crews and inspectors (lots of idling and parking each day). I'm curious how it will work for cops. The rapid acceleration will be useful. They spend most of their day idling with heater and AC running. I'm not sure how many shifts each car works, so charging time may be an issue?

If it’s an issue, they can easily set up charge points on telephone poles requiring a specialized hookup cable kept in the vehicle. A simple lock covering the plastic or metal housing plug in will prevent mischief.

Scatter a couple hundred around the city and it’s easy peasey electric fleets for the city. Support vehicles with charging batteries can recharge work crews, run lights and extraction fans.

Yeah..... You know. Those big wood things that hold up the wires that all the government drones hang from to recharge in between spying on what you do when you go out into the woods to play dress up and carry around rifles.
