Americans, Preference Cascade ← Previous post Next post → Comments JohninMd(help!) Dec 15 2020 at 12:05 am Now, THAT would make sense…. JTC Dec 15 2020 at 12:12 am Hell yeah. Never crash and burn another Starship again with Javie at Mission Control. Kafiroon Dec 15 2020 at 12:21 am Javier updated, say something like a R6000 “piloting” one of the Heavy Lifts to Mars and Beyond! JTC Dec 15 2020 at 12:57 am To paraphrase another Texan, “That giant sucking sound you hear? That’s the brains and the means and the methods of production whooshing out of Blue Commie World and being “reset” in Big Red Texas, the Capital-elect of the Confederated States of the Constitutional American Republic.” JTC Dec 15 2020 at 1:23 am “Confeds of the CAR…“ JTC Dec 15 2020 at 11:35 pm Correction: The Confederated States of the Constitutional Republic of America. The Confeds of the CRA. I like it. Henry Dec 15 2020 at 3:20 am Unfortinately, even the so-called friendliest of them still vote like woke commies. Roland Deshain Dec 15 2020 at 1:50 pm Who is John Galt? DogByte6RER Dec 15 2020 at 1:02 am Javier had better keep a tight leash on Musk. He should take Jo or the T200 along to keep Musk on the up and straight … https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6142193/Elon-Musk-smokes-JOINT-live-Joe-Rogan-Experience-podcast.html JTC Dec 15 2020 at 1:36 am Are you kidding me? What a great fucking BS session an incredible visionary genius nutball, smoking a J and sipping good whiskey straight… That kind of thing is how real shit gets done, amazing that it was done allowing the world to listen in. BTW, that two year old story about a stock value “loss”? Wonder if they care to do an update, maybe learn a little about the universe from one of the masters of it. I love quirky geniuses…several here, including our host. 😉 DogByte6RER Dec 27 2020 at 1:48 pm I’m no fan of Musk. He has a history of cronyism. Maybe his dope smoking and charisma make him a media darling … but he made much of his early wealth sucking up green renewable subsidies during the Obama era. Lots of past and present taxpayer funded cronyism made Musk the billionaire he is now.

Locusts gonna locust. Bob in Houston Dec 15 2020 at 10:27 am Yup, thats the big problem, blue state Dems metastasizing to Red states, Oracle is headed to Austin as well, not sure how many people are coming with Elon but its supposed to be around 11k moving in with Oracle. John Dec 15 2020 at 12:31 pm Texas’ insurance policy against turning Blue will be the public schools. Every effort should be made to keep the Left from indoctrinating the youth. The best way I know of to do that is by school vouchers that would allow parents to pull their kids from the Swamp and kill the jobs of the commies while promoting best practices elsewhere. Scott Adams of Dilbert fame points out that if there really is such a thing as “systemic racism” it is manifest in the schools and enforced by the teacher’s unions and is responsible for the destruction of cities from within. I would amend that to call it “systemic classism” because it affects any and every race. The privileged among us send their kids to private schools for a reason. WayneM Dec 15 2020 at 2:01 pm My Texan wife & I discussed this subject. She believes the majority of those fleeing Calipornia are, at the least, center-right if not conservative. Rather than being invading Cali-locusts, they’re refugees. That being said, if they’re accustomed to some of the perks of socialism, they might try to bring that here… Hopefully, they’ll see the err of such thinking sooner than later. interventor Dec 15 2020 at 4:29 pm Locust, once they devour the leaves and grass, move on leaving the plant to regenerate. The left is more akin to zombies. The healthy they don’t infect, the devour alive. Never leave, unless a tap to the head. John Dec 15 2020 at 7:00 pm I thought it was amusing back when FEMA was conducting an exercise in disaster readiness by preparing for the “zombie apocalypse”. Then the plague of Woke hit us with their NPC mindset, perpetual riots, and adherence to the long discredited doctrine of communism. Now I can appreciate what a RW zombie is. Capn Jack Dec 15 2020 at 3:09 am The Fat Lady hasn’t sung yet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8MFEq4aHEb0 PaulS Dec 15 2020 at 8:25 am Oh, when it’s all over, the fat lady SCREAMS! 🙂 Think twiggly-puff at full pitch and then a small “poof” as its head explodes. Oopsie. Pamela Dec 15 2020 at 3:17 am Javier~ You need to keep your own counsel where Elon is concerned. Is there a way that a tiny Jo can hang with Javier while he’s working on projects? Plus Damon needs to have his Lawyers in any sessions. JTC Dec 15 2020 at 2:40 pm No ma’am…twelve year olds, even genius ones, have no “own counsel”. There is so much to know and learn about life and emotional maturity that is unrelated to rocket science, that Javier and probably Elon too, need the counsel and protection of an ESQ…and their Dads. Halley Dec 15 2020 at 4:17 am 306. This is far more nerve-wracking than landing rockets. Cutting the endgame close, and waiting for the final countdown. After 12 months of non-stop Twilight Zone, when does Dragnet start? Bill G Dec 15 2020 at 7:34 am Texans need to get busy with the Welcome Wagon idea frequently pushed by Glenn Reynolds, over at Instapundit. jdpalmer1 Dec 15 2020 at 9:40 am Dawgs In Space!!! Halley Dec 15 2020 at 11:30 am Did Wikileaks just drop the Motherload? CaptDMO Dec 15 2020 at 12:06 pm Now way… Kid STILL needs to blow a few more things up, break at least ONE bone doing something stupid, discover hangover, kill off a few goldfish/ sea monkeys, face down a wild raccoon, face acne, travel 4000 miles by combination bus/train/plane/shuttle/ cab/ car (standard-with at least ONE dodgy function) on his own ….before entering the soul crushing, mind vaporizing, parasite/vermin infested world of …corporate. epador Dec 15 2020 at 8:30 pm Thread winner! Too Tall Dec 16 2020 at 12:11 am Sound like the voice of experience. Kafiroon Dec 15 2020 at 5:10 pm Javier needs to tell Elon that he needs to see what his “aunt” can do with a turkey. And safety warning should be up. She’s in the kitchen. Pamela Dec 15 2020 at 6:50 pm Googgie went after Vox Popoli today NotYetInACamp Dec 15 2020 at 8:39 pm How would I know? I just had the mixed blessing of no internet connection for a while. JTC Dec 15 2020 at 9:24 pm So…no ‘net makes it all go away? Not mixed, all blessing! NotYetInACamp Dec 15 2020 at 9:38 pm 🙂 NotYetInACamp Dec 15 2020 at 9:37 pm Jo can shake Elon’s hand. And then… JTC Dec 15 2020 at 9:46 pm …and then lots of Elon’s or one frozen one? Hmm, talk about mixed blessings… interventor Dec 15 2020 at 10:37 pm n a shocking leak obtained by The Australian newspaper, details of Chinese Communist Party (CCP) members and their infiltration into the global companies have been exposed. According to the report, nearly two million CCP agents have secretly infiltrated into some of the world’s biggest companies, banks, media groups, universities and even government agencies. “It is believed to be the first leak of its kind in the world. What’s amazing about this database is not just that it exposes people who are members of the Communist Party, and who are now living and working all over the world, from Australia to the US to the UK, but it’s amazing because it lifts the lid on how the party operates under President and Chairman Xi Jinping,” The Australian journalist and Sky News host Sharri Markson said in the report. https://www.ibtimes.co.in/list-ccp-spies-exposed-2-million-agents-infiltrated-global-companies-details-831219 Reply Comment Name * Email * Website Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
