I could only imagine all the childish articles that would be written about “MANUFACTURE X, THE OVERLORD CORPORATE ASSHOLES, HAVE $XBILLION ON HAND BUT CONTINUE TO UNDERPAY THEIR AMAZING WORKERS” etc if these companies actually did pocket tons of money year after year. Is there a world where auto unions don’t endlessly Read more

This could be a corruption sting. If you see a nurse pull up in a Vantage for free repairs, then you need to take a close look at their finances.

Musk is really one of those guys who hates being wrong, possibly even more than Trump.

I mainly think this is going to continue in phases. For a lot of America, it isn’t even real yet. And that should be a good thing, but the trend has been that places aren’t issuing stay at home directives until it arrives. Only 30 states have issued these types of directives. Read more

A thief jimmies the door and breaks in. He bends down to start working on the ignition - and doesn’t notice that the air is growing occluded. He coughs a bit. Then a bit more. He smells metal. Then he coughs up blood. He sits up. The air is thick now - rusty dust has filled the cabin and he can’t even see out the Read more

Musk has volunteered to make them.  With no timeline on when it could be done, the cost, how many, or even actually reaching out to companies that do this like GM did.

I don’t get the blanket outrage for people being landlords. Are they good landlords? Do they take care of the property? Do they offer reasonable rental rates comparable to similar properties? Do they keep rent increases limited? Then what’s the problem with making an investment that provides a decent place to live? Read more

Probably because so much of what passes for being progressive online is taking ideologically sexy but wildly unrealistic positions and then shitting all over people who don’t match those positions 100%

A Marxist analysis of property (or really any economic activity where paying rents is required) seems to be inherently flawed, since Marxism as I understand it doesn’t really think that rent is a moral/viable requirement. If Joan wants to get into dollars and cents when she’s analyzing property ownership through a Read more

I’m not sure if Joan is attempting to be an agent provocateur or if she truly believes it’s wrong for anyone to own property and charge rent.
