I can't believe Mark Zuckerberg is even on the list. What the hell makes admirable besides his money?

I can forgive that. Any smart business is going to try to get on the predicted winner's good side, especially with the Clintons having a notoriously long memory.

Even though I don't agree about her looks, isn't that a side product of his money?

Ex wife, they've been married and divorced like three times already and just got divorced again. I think Musk is slightly autistic and doesn't know how to be a proper cuck.

I've been told by aerospace people that SpaceX is terrible to work for. Long hours with bad pay.

Seems pretty self evident. While a lot of companies in tech are doing great things it's fairly incremental. Not many are really revolutionizing things. Rocketry had all but entirely stalled out since the 60s meaning we had multiple generations with an opportunity to stake a claim and nobody else was able to. Electric vehicles went from glorified go-karts to supercars with Tesla. Don't think there's much you can compare this against!

What's a few lost lives along the way as Tesla users are Beta testers..ya know, driving into white tractor trailers and all...

We, in a rather direct way, are paying for all of that rocketry and electric car stuff through heavy govt subsidies and contracts. Innovation, yes, but achieved via political smoke and mirrors.

But hot damn, I want those solar "shingle" panels on my house. :-)

Tesla receives $0 in federal subsidies at this point. The one and only federal subsidy is/was a consumer perk in that they get a $7000 tax rebate. But it only applies to first 200k units of an electric model sold. Since Tesla had more than 200k preorders in the first day the Model X was was available for purchase, it's not working as an incentive for them. The cars are selling on their own merit, though I'm sure those 200k people who did get it are happy!

The rocketry is an even better deal. SpaceX receives $0 in federal subsidies and has sent the price of launches plummeting, and they're looking to send them lower in the near future with the first ever truly reused rocket ever. The Space Shuttle was not, in reality, reusable but that's a whole different topic. Anyhow, the point of this is that our government sends up a ton of rockets for science, military, maintenance, etc. Those rockets now are costing the tax payer tens of millions of dollars less per launch each time they go with SpaceX.

Solar is the only area where the consumer (and once again - not even the company) is receiving a non-limited subsidy. Install a solar setup and you get a 30% tax deduction subject to some constraints. By contrast go drill an oil well and you get a 100% tax deduction. And the solar subsidy automatically scales back and down to 0% in 2021. The full cost oil subsidies aren't going anywhere.

Finally the total mileage on auto-pilot has the vehicles with a lower overall fatality rate than average. In other words if the cars were sold without auto-pilot and had driven the same amount of miles you'd expect more fatalities than Tesla has actually had.

There's a huge amount of propaganda being put out against Musk's companies simply because he's taking on some incredibly influential industries. The fossil fuels industry, automotive industry, and old money aerospace. These industries are all deeply interwoven with government and were printing money more or less at their will until Musk. Well except the automotive industry, but when that industry started failing the government gave them $80 billion dollars, because - hey, why not? By contrast federal subsidies for all of Musk's companies combined is less than $2 billion and 100% of that money goes to consumers - not to his companies.

are you talking about the crash where the driver was playing a fucking video game instead of paying attention to the road? tesla's auto pilot is not self driving, it's cruise control on steroids

  • Mark Zuckerberg - sold all our data to the NSA
  • Steve Jobs - made hardware for hipsters at double price
  • Elon Musk - launches rockets into space, makes electric cars, promises impossible things that he'll probably never get around to doing, but who cares, he's launching rockets into space.

I don't really trust Elon Musk, but compared to the other two, yeah, he deserves it.

Steve Jobs, no hard feelings man, I think your products are overrated, but you cheated millions of hipsters out of their money and I respect that.

And then at last we come to Mark... if there ever was a Jew who deserves to be gassed, it would be the Zucker, after every person whose information he sold gets to punch him in the face.
