    Billionaires in pop culture is fashion and a product of our times. In other eras like the 60ís or 70ís he would have been reviled.

    Musk and meme kids irritate me in countless ways. Musk feigning libertarian ideals with Twitter fucking annoys me currently. What annoys me is less Musk and more the dumb ass public eating his act up. Tesla, Spacex and Solar City would not exist if not for government subsidies. Not just the Feds but state governments like Nevadaís tax break for his factory there.

    Now Biden is or was talking about EV tax breaks ($4500?) for union made cars and subsidies for charging stations for all EVís and now Musk is talking pure bullshit about rejecting or not supporting any EV subsidies. He outgrew the subsidies that bankrolled him early on.

    PT Barnum yet endlessly fascinating. Heís harmless. I hold the public in lower esteem.
    Think about this......SpaceX is not even a publicly trade company yet. He still has that in his back pocket. He takes that public and God knows what his net worth/leverage will be. The global tech elites have never had someone like this in the opposite corner of the ring and they are scrambling. These are the type of people who are usually on their side. They are used to just running over anyone and anything in their path.

    Only 12% of Twitter stockholders are individuals.

    Let's get rid of mutual funds and "institutional investors".

    Maybe but keep in mind musk doesnít have 50 billion liquidity to pay for Twitter. Wouldnít be surprised if he liquidates something of his crypto positions. Musk has no qualms pumping something for his own benefit to bail out earlyz

    Twitter was never really about freedom of speech.

    About half the salary for most employees was from stock options. I'm sure the employees will love making 50% less money.

    Elon Musk is buying Twitter for $44 billion so it will be more open for free speech. We will see about that. I think this is more about money &/or power than free speech. But free speech is a nice story. The left lost a little of its grip over the media because of Musk, so that's a very good thing. He could have thrown an extra 50 bucks into the deal and bought CNN+ as well.
    Why should a trucker who didn't go to college have to pay off a lawyer's student loan debt?
