There’s a non-zero chance he thinks that’s the latest smart phone model. And that it’s made by Apple.

He’s old. It makes sense.
He doesn't need to be spending his time watching TikTok or learning the latest productivity app.

It should say "lawmaker." The bill in question has one sponsor and no cosponsors; the only sponsor is Democrat Rep. Marcus C. Evans, Jr.

Headline: Man with "eff you" money says "eff you."

It's a little more than #1 money versus #2 money. Remember that both own rocket companies that theoretically compete with one another, although on that front I would note that only one of them has actually put anything into orbit.

Musk has become a total clown show. Invests billions in volatile Bitcoin, then undercuts the stock by talking bad about it on Twitter.

It’s like he’s become an all out grifter at this point.

I’m not saying Bezos is some great guy but Musk has lost all credibility in my eyes. Like for example, when he spends time raging on how social media is ruining the world...but spends hours on Twitter every single day

This.

I’m also (I know this should be in the investment thread) very bearish on Tesla. I just think he’s just too far gone to direct the company in the right direction, ie investing tons of cash in a volatile stock

i'm not sure what this means. if he's lost credibility, does it mean the decade's lead over other EV makers is going away, or that his brand no longer has the top rated customer satisfaction in the market?

he's not someone whose personality anyone should admire, but grifter? SpaceX and Tesla are already delivering on very big promises, so i'm not sure where the grift is.

Kristen Sinema is maybe one of the biggest jokes on the planet. I actually think, compared to the Cruz/Hawley opportunism, there's something worse about a feckless attention whore with no conceivable gains to be made from their obstruction, and it doesn't even align with voter preference or any ideology. She so desperately just wants to be a thing - and that's the end game.

If she and Manchin don't support the temporary removal of the filibuster to enact stimulus and voters rights act, i hope the left disowns them. they'll get Fetterman and RonJon's replacement to align with them in '22 and Manchin can go be his authentic self, and Sinema can go sell essential oils to her facebook friends.

When the first tweet about Musk/Bezos was posted my immediate thought was that given the chance, I'd much rather be Bezos.

Meh. Musk is 8 years younger. I'd rather have 8 more years to enjoy my billions
