    Why do you think they get so upset when you tell them you cut off conservative relatives, lol?

    It’s all about grievances. They feel entitled to everyone else’s time and attention and will raise hell if they aren’t constantly reminded that they’re Mommy’s Specialest Big Boy.

    How’s that for a literal nanny state.

    Our Ruling

    Musk said Biden’s strategy is to "get as many illegals in the country as possible" and "legalize them to create a permanent majority."

    The path to U.S. citizenship, which is required for voting in federal elections, can take a decade, so the current influx of immigrants would not lead to a significant number of new voters for many years, if ever.

    Even when immigrants become voting citizens, it doesn’t mean the United States will become a one-party nation.

    Biden currently supports a Senate immigration bill that does not create a broad path to citizenship.

    We rate this statement False.

    There is already a permanent majority. It would be more powerful without gerrymandering, voter apathy, and the frequent ineptitude and/or foolishness of DNC leadership.

    The funny part about all this is that Republicans are the ones who are big proponents of being able to fire anyone at any time for any reason. The left are the ones who want more protections for workers, maybe not necessarily for bigoted opinions, but actual immutable characteristics. They might have a better case if they hadn't dismantled nearly every employment protection law in our codex, but if they want someone to blame they only have themselves.

    I was waiting for someone to come along with the "patina" cope. I just figured people mocking cybertruck owners would be the first to bring it up... Guess I underestimated the dedication of the sycophants.

    I especially like the "Don't drive it in the rain" response.

    If I was a meaner, pettier person, I'd tweet that article with a gif of Nickson's Joker going "Uh oh, looks like they went with brand X"
    "Law and Order", lots of places have had that, Russia, North Korea, Saddam's Iraq.
    Laws can be made to enforce order of cruelty and brutality.

    Well, all stainless steel rusts. It's rust resistant, not immune to rust. But yeah; putting that steel exposed to the elements and the shit that's on the road, especially once it starts getting abrasions and dings because of the inevitable road debris which opens up more surface area for corrosion, just a colossally stupid idea.

    Harvard law professor on Elon Musk: ‘Over the past 100 years, Delaware has periodically irritated one or two executives by enforcing the law’

    Fortune uses a half-assed but annoying paywall, but I assure you, what you think the headline means is correct.

    The legal corporate governance community is unmoved by Elon Musk’s call for companies to dump Delaware as their home state after his historic $55.8 billion pay plan was basically thrown in the trash by a judge in that state’s famed chancery court.

    The ruling occurred as the result of a challenge to the Tesla CEO’s compensation package, which made him the richest man in the world over a stunning four-year run-up in Tesla results. According to Harvard professor of law and economics John Coates, this kind of thing just happens sometimes in “the First State.”

    “Over the past 100 years, Delaware has periodically irritated one or two executives by enforcing the law, and even led some prominent lawyers to call for companies to move elsewhere from time to time,” Coates told Fortune, adding that he was “confident Delaware will not lose significant numbers of incorporations as a result of this one decision, as uninhibited as Musk is.”

    It’s unlikely that a losing litigant could single-handedly undermine the predominance of the Delaware courts, said retired Potter Anderson partner Donald Wolfe Jr. in an emailed statement to Fortune. Wolfe has participated in more than 200 legal decisions in the state.

    I very much doubt that Mr. Musk’s recent bleat, which is what appears to have given rise to the recent reincorporation hubbub, is likely to have much substantive impact,” said Wolfe.

    Had Musk and the Tesla board’s compensation committee pursued a process that was equivalent to an arm’s-length negotiation and obtained shareholder approval based on full and candid disclosures, it’s entirely possible they could have secured a different outcome, said Wolfe.

    “No doubt they were so advised,” he said. “They apparently did neither.”

    Wolfe said he’s glad to know that well-established legal principles were applied in the case without regard to “the identity of the losing parties,” which is as it should be.

    “There are perhaps other jurisdictions that, in the spirit of competition, would be inclined to look the other way when a potentially disappointed [litigant] is a celebrity of untold wealth who owns a media megaphone,” he said. “If so, they warrant congratulations on having outstripped all rivals in the venerable race to the bottom.”
    If nothing else, at least Musk's upcoming court failures come from a fair fight. Musk appears to have competent lawyers arguing an invalid case. I could name a celebrity who thinks he's President who can't say that.

    It appears Elon has been Triggered(TM) by Stephen King repeatedly calling Twitter, Twitter.

    And is being a shitty asshole and asking people to stop "deadnaming" Twitter, which is just continuing his transphobia and is probably another great reason why his daughter basically disowned him and refuses to talk to him.

    I enjoy the performative faux-outrage in service of spreading bigotry. I enjoy how apparently delicate and sensitive he is. I enjoy how pointless this is.

    And my favorite part is that if you go to twitter.com it still sends you to twitter.com and not x.com and has all kinds of twitter.com links so damn it seems like Twitter very much remains alive. If the corporation wants me to stop "deadnaming" it then it can slide up in my DM's and make the request. I'm unconvinced a corporate entity is actually sentient and capable of that, though. Even if, legally, they are a person.

    Musk's transition from "tech genius who will save the world" to sad, cringey reply guy has been hilarious to watch.
