    Since you atted me I’ll reply. Musk is great at marketing but I don’t think he has some great business acumen, and I damn sure won’t give him credit for throwing money at shit that already existed and acting like he invented it. Money does not equal intelligence. Neither does self promotion, which is the only thing he actually excels at. Sorry to burst your bubble.

    Might want to go back and read our back and forth. I had that conversation with Lyrtch, including the transcript.

    More projection. I highly doubt in my lifetime that the fed will be abolished (although they are really shitty at their jobs and have presided over an absolute shitload of recessions and financial instability since creation) nor that we will have a deflationary currency. Neither of those are remotely relevant to why I own bitcoin. Dismissing the who's who list of people who have btc in their portfolios as "some former hedge fund manager" is quite funny. PTJ wrote an entire investment thesis on it at the start of covid. Again, maybe you're smarter than all of those guys. Or maybe you're missing something.

    Disagree with price of assets not being the same as inflation; that's you making a subjective assessment on how you define inflation. I find the "stock market and housing goes straight up and fed can't get inflation to 2%" comment to be a bit odd. CPI is uhhhh not directly factoring in things like "I live in LA or Phoenix and want to buy a house, how much has the average house gone up in price" or "i want to buy the S&P500, how much has it gone up in price?"

    Musk is only good at self-promotion. Got it. I disagree and think your points are hyperbolic and wrong. Either way, the discourse is boring.

    If only more entrepreneurs were good at self-promotion, they too could run/found/start/manage (whatever non-offensive word you'd like) multiple billion dollar+ companies.

    I think Musk's biggest skill is chutzpah. Then identifying areas where money can be made. But one of those seems to be cancelling out the other these days.

    Iirc Whammy once whined that if you don't get the social benefit of being successful what's the point.

    We all said money but that didn't seem to be enough.

    Ah yes. The billionaire afraid of working class Americans organizing to just have a fighting chance with a wealth gap at historic disparity. But let’s vote for the party that does not care about democracy and peddles around conspiracy theories that has quite literally led to deadly hate crimes. What a stupid mother fucker.

    If the Democratic Party actually was the party of unionization it’d be great. Instead they will view this categorization as an attack by Musk.

    Remember folks billionaires and most rich people are fucking evil. They’d happily welcome fascism as long as no one touches their money. They’d happily welcome you losing all your rights in exchange for lower taxes.

    Musk deserves to be drowned and have his money given to charities that will actually do something positive for the world with it.

    I’m sure his bootlicking cult members will be in my mentions like the bottom bitches that they are for that statement

    All of them suck but at least Bezos and Zuck aren't shit posters to this level. Elon is just full on mask off at this point. I've never rooted for a company to collapse like I do Tesla. Thanks for pushing that space but you can die now.

    Bezos is starting to do it. But he doesn't have the same level of aspergers to tweet through the criticism.

    He also doesnt have the same legion of incel, isolated boys rushing to his defense at every whim.

    truly think its as simple as he saw musk and decided he too wanted some of that action

    problem is, he is incorrectly assuming that musk - guy who has cost himself billions the past 30 days - is pressing the right buttons.
