Elon Musk owns so much stock because he's accumulated the sum off all work product of all his employees: engineers and factory assembly workers, who were not compensated proportionately to the value of their full contributions.

Biden's mistake was campaigning that he was going to end COVID, because the reality is that he can't control a pandemic/endemic. That said, Trump constantly downplayed COVID and contributed to the conspiracy thinking that led so many MAGA Republicans to fight the COVID vaccines.
From @WSJopinion: Joe Biden has done no better than Donald Trump in defeating Covid despite the benefit of vaccines, better therapies, and more clinical experience on.wsj.com/3p50UwB

I wonder if a year of Trump and the GOP downplaying the virus and arguing against masks, social distancing, vaccines and all other measures to slow the spread had anything to do with the current situation in the country.
Biden used the illusion he could vanquish the virus to win election, and he is now paying a political price because he hasn’t. on.wsj.com/3FQSDU0

Andy Ngo makes his living inciting violence based on lies.
If you're seeing some lunacy about a person of interest who was detained re: Waukesha, here's a brief window into how the right-wing disinfo machine works. It starts with Andy Ngo, of course. First, another reporter—not Andy—does the actual work of finding the POI's record. 1/x

A big problem is that people will say "you can't tell me how to live my life" when what they mean is "you can't tell me how to treat other people"

In Debatte zu Covid spricht AfD Abgeordneter Sichert von Tribüne, er sitzt da, weil er sich nicht testen lassen will. Von dort hetzt er gegen die Impfung, sie sei gefährlicher als Covid. Und das muss man sich im Bundestag anhören. Leute wie er sind mit schuld, das andere sterben

Everyone is dunking on this every which way so I'll just make the point again that if you have to MAKE the yellow star YOURSELF and put it on YOURSELF you have already completely undermined whatever shitty point you think you were making
In Kansas, anti-vaxxers are showing up to municipal meetings wearing yellow stars, portraying themselves as having equal footing with Jewish victims of the Holocaust.

Using Twitter results as cloud cover to monetize $TSLA at prices he knows aren’t sustainable without outright telling the market he’s lost faith in its valuation
Much is made lately of unrealized gains being a means of tax avoidance, so I propose selling 10% of my Tesla stock. Do you support this?

Yeah.
The people who think CRT isn't being taught in our schools are the same people who think the COVID vaccine prevents you from getting COVID.

In the span of six months the moral panic around CRT has become the core issue in statewide elections. Coverage of tonight needs to explicitly state that the CRT craze was an intentionally manufactured political strategy because the people who did it are outright admitting it.

"The Great Resignation" is not about people not wanting to work. It is about a dawning recognition that, for a larger and larger portion of this country, the American dream is dead, and with it, the inspiration of working toward a better future for oneself. Instead, work.../1

The really insidious thing is how much Manchin and Sinema (and the entire GOP) are treating programs that are the norm in the rest of our peer countries as swinging for the fences. And this is labeled “centrist.”

"I have a crazy economic theory for you: workers are sick and fucking tired of all of this shit... Let me be as blunt as humanely possible: the reason people aren’t going back to these jobs is that the labor is hard and the pay is bad." @edzitron ez.substack.com/p/there-isnt…
