I see the left melting down since Musk first announced he was purchasing twitter.
I see whoever would oppose them melting over their melt as well.
Musky: I'm buying Twitter
Everyone: melt
Musky: Okay I'm not buying Twitter
Everyone: melt
Musky: Okay, I'll buy Twitter then
Everyone: melt
😅
It's hilarious.

Now days, way too many people melt down when they don't get their way.

Let's not forget the right's extended meltdown when Twitter removed the posts of the liars, grifters and conspiracy theorists.

not wokeness
Anymore, that and "fake news" sounds like the whining on a 5th grade playground at recess.

The woke commies at twitter were banning users for saying Rachel Levine was a man not to mention banning the likes of the NYP for breaking the Hunter Biden laptop story. That's just two of many examples.

And that is a bit picky. But when coming from obviously sound asleep fascists it is bullying, and that is against their rules. Rules which are clearly laid out.
Hate and lies of critical importance should never be allowed anywhere. Even though that would destroy the Republican Party.

You conveniently forget (anyone surprised?) that Occupy Wall Street users were banned:

And civil rights lawyers were banned for support of BLM:

Hunter Bide laptop story
Talk to me when it is a story. After the 6th "charges are eminent" report a month ago, I have come to realize there is probably nothing to it more than trumpie tears and tantrums.

Until it is anything more than a whine fest, "go on and cry in your coffee, but don't come bitchin to me."

Remember, when lying is your only hope, it's hopeless:

And again. I hope to God tRUMP is unbanned.
Letting him make a fool of himself on the biggest platform will only help the Democrats in the future.

If the company I work for announced both a reduction of half the employees and the end of working from home, I am absolutely certain that the 50% of people that would remain would all the most useless unproductive people.

Good prediction. Now you could safely go back to your parent's house basement. Let those useless unproductive people fight and strive for their own life alone.

Still pretty short sighted when it comes to working from home. If an employee's job can be done exclusively online, why force them to waste time commuting all week?
As long as their work gets done, it's has quite a few benefits (smaller office to pay for, certain types of people are happier, etc)...
That only mean your work is too simple, or redundant, or non material, or no humanly touch nor interaction required, which implies it could be soon replaced by AI.
Now just stay home and enjoy your remote working. While it lasts. Don't cry now, you droids.

Remote workers are going to figure out real quick, if they want to stay remote, they are going to be in a very big pool of employees that work for very little. And I just want to say I CALLED IT, remote work was not permanent and never will be.

Same deal with my current employer, I knew it was a matter of time before they will make a mandatory return to office day, and they did two weeks ago told anyone who lives within respectable driving distance to come to the office on Wednesday for "in-person experience, culture and collaboration."

Before that, they emphasized the "new way of working," with remote being primary for many, and the only people who showed up to the office were workers' roles that required to be in the office, like manufacturing support and onsite IT support. Then played with some language around meetings only hosted on Tuesday and Thursday. If the meeting is better facilitated in person, come to the office to do it remotely.

So they modified (rebranded) the "new way of working," and its a matter of time (I give it within six months) before they will add another day or two; plus, when people came into the office on Wednesday, they held meetings that were supposed to be Tuesday and Thursday, so I believe they will leverage that into making Tuesday and Thursday office while sanctifying Wednesday for culture and collaboration.

People might wonder what the reasoning behind it is. I assume they would communicate their decision why upper management made this move with facts like productivity is down, many people expressed negative emotions without seeing their peers in person, etc. Nope, just typical corporate talking points about it being good for our culture, that's it.

I believe with some rumors I heard from others: they paid millions for the new headquarters office and want people in it, plus the ongoing utility expense to maintain those deserted buildings. Rumors included squeezing out more productivity from employees.

Wait... you do not think Hunter Biden's laptop is a story...?

Or is it that you not American and don't care and like the President of The United States colluding with China and Russia... taking kickbacks while he was flying his Son around the world, in Air Force 2.. while he made illicit business deals...

LOL^... like none of that matters to you, because Trump somehow did something wrong.. and you are still waiting for it.

A lot of these rich people were born with all the advantages of the world at their disposal, or inherited wealth from their parents. Only a small number rose from humble beginnings.
Surely you've heard the emerald mine story?
https://www.quora.com/Is-it-true-th...ot-their-wealth-from-apartheid-emerald-mining
Of course a lot of wealthy people inherited their money. That does not make them bad people. But there are way more millionaires who did not come from money. Of course billionaires may be a different story but there are a lot less of them.
Look man I'm not jumping on the Joy Reid "Musk is for apartheid" train. That is ridiculous far left MSNBC stuff.
Seriously can not stand the left with their self righteous demonization of everyone. Toxic as hell and terrible for our society.
There is good and bad in everyone. Some people have money and some don't. But you should not judge people you don't know based on their wealth.
Musk may be a turd of a person....but I don't know the guy so I'll pass on acting like I'm on some moral high ground.

It's so odd to me how some people still bring Trump in to every topic.
Dude has been gone for 2 two years and the country has turned into a turd show since he left and all some people care about is Trump...still...years later.
There are bigger problem than Trump right now.

Oh no, not a hard working and successful capitalist!!!!
Seriously blows my mind how people love to demonize others that earn their success.
I don't know Musk and don't care to but holy crap the ridiculous hate for capitalism and people with money is insane. Here's an idea....work hard and earn your own and stop judging everyone who has done well.



Most of your views are generally off but I have to agree with the above statement. Every Musk topic blows up because he is so divisive but he really isn't worth so many articles imo.
Just because we disagree on Musk does not mean that my views are off. Your views could just as easily be off as mine could be.

I see the Musk is "the devil brigade" has already infested this thread. Capitalism is bad and socialism is good, blah, blah, blah. Don't forget to wear your worthless mask if you go outside while collecting those free .gov checks...

Hard to blame Musk considering the current failed administration trying to uncluster what the old leadership did at twitter.

Consider the following link of general .gov screw ups so far as to why he needs to do what he is doing. The only thing I would disagree with him is to ease up on remote working. A hybrid solution would be best.

Biden's. failure, weakness and chaos
Excellent attempt at political whataboutism. (y) (Y)

I really don't know why people think he's a hero.
He's just living his best capitalist life.
Like the rest of the rich pricks.
It's really sad that so many people agreed with this comment above. Really makes me concerned for the future of the US.
I sure would like to know what what all the capitalist haters would replace it with. These kinds of comments just make me wonder how young the posters are and how much real life experience they have. Because to be honest it screams gen z entitlement to me.

Nope. Your perspective is off.
I think you should educate yourself about Musk's involvement in companies like Tesla, in NASA, etc. Otherwise, you lack sufficient information to make an accurate assessment of Musk.

I'm still waiting to find out. I know Biden Jr. has done shady things for sure, but lawbreaking is another thing. So far there is no meat on the bone. Just like trumpers.

Of course it would bother me, but we can't even get tRUMP to admit he did it.
Holy Crap! Are you in 5th grade?!
because Trump somehow did something wrong
Somehow? That's funny. His life is something wrong. He is the king of elitism.

Man you need to get some therapy for your Trump obsession.
I don't like the guy but damn you may have some issues you need to work out.

Who can't laugh at a fool that thinks a person running for President in 2024 shouldn't be in the minds of voters?

Listen, you either know the contents of his laptop and are just trolling and attempting to gaslight... or you actually are so aloof, that you do not now that the contents have been released for all to view...

And not only is Hunter going to jail, his Dad and his uncle... & the FBI tried to hide it all, so the DOJ is going to be retooled and many people will go to jail for collusion. Americans will not stand for unequal application of laws. You are too afraid to accept what is on his laptop, and are trying to feign ignorance on a topic, so you don't have to discuss it.

Again, so now that free speech is back in America.. you can't run from pretending not to care, because that makes you a hypocrite. If what Trump did was bad, then what the Biden Family has done is worse.... but fake news won't talk about it, so you remain ignorant of it. The rest of us can laugh at those lemmings who do not know how/learned to educate themselves and read what is on Hunter's laptop... the rest pretend.

Stop pretending...



You can't have knuckleheads like you spewing fake news acting like Biden can do treasonous things and it doesn't apply to him, because you like him... is why Twitter employees are getting fired today.

They don't care about laws, only protecting their fragile egos and feelings....

How about we discuss the current democratic crap show that is ruining pretty much everything instead posting meme's and emoji's. Every one of you REFUSE to acknowledge it, instead hanging on with Trump fever. ;)
