Musk on COVID
Elon Musk is rarely silent -- and COVID and the Shutdown are no exceptions.
- Ventilators - Musk promised ventilators to help with COVID, and Californias cuckolding Gov. Newsom claimed that Hospitals had never received them. So Musk gave a list of some hospitals that he'd given them to -- and low and behold, they had received them (just like NYC had). Sorta. Musk gave them CPAP and biPAP Machines -- which help people breathe and are probably a better tool for COVID, so I give him credit. But they are cheaper that full respirators, and not technically what most people mean when they say "Respirators".
- Shelter-in-Place - the Press hyped that Musk went on an expletive laced rant by saying that Shelter-in-place was unconstitutional and an overreaction (fascism). I tend to agree that the data shows that it was an overreaction, and the Press is definitely trying to make Musk look worse than he was. Not everyone has to agree with the collective.
- The Federal Government, other States, and California all opened up for Auto-Manufacturing (from the COVID shutdown)... but Alameda County Health Office wouldn't let Tesla open up despite lower break-out than the other places that were allowed to open. Musk threatened to move his HQ to a free State like Texas or Nevada. A California politicians tweeted back "Fuck Musk". So Elon said, "message received" and opened up the Tesla auto-plant anyways, and told the county to arrest him. This caused snowflakes to melt down because he valued the Constitution and his business and workers more than the bureaucrats did. </noinlcude>
