 File under: Tin Hat Dictators, Presidents for Life,  

#1 The very definition of counting chickens before they hatch and killing the goose that lays the golden eggs all rolled into one. And all to make a better life for the George Floyds of the world.

#2 A young, energetic, well educated entrepreneur and philanthropist who understands math. He must be evil.

#3 Well, you have Musk and Thiel on the one hand, tending their knitting and making the occasional sharp observation of society. Then you have Microdose Jack, Fat Boy Benoiff, Suckerpurge, Reed Hastings and other people who think their money gives them some special license to decide how you should live. Maybe billionaires should take a vow of silence.

#4 OTOH, the gummint could stop the subsidies it makes to Tesla and SpaceX. Let the screeching begin.

#6 Hertz's 100K unit Tesla buy means I will get to drive one without owning it or interacting with Tesla sales staff. Call it Samhadi.

#7 Not to mention as well that the stock owners would get fucked as the value drops with the sale for the tax. Bye bye 401k value.

#8 Only if you own it or let you broker buy it.

#9 It won't happen until Pelosi et al start majorly short-selling.

#10 What's Paul Pelosi doing now? Where's he investing?

#11 would be more fair to simply alter the 'step up basis' rule and limit the amount of 1031 exchange holdings to, say $10M.

then the cap gains rate could be lowered a point or two with a net

#12 When a Democrat California senator gave Musk grief he moved to Texas. Not sure where he can go now, but I imagine he'll be a lot more involved in donating to strategic political campaigns in the future.

#13 I basically think Musk has made most of his money from being a Tax Farmer for various green schemes. This should be a warning to everyone: live by the left-wing swindle, die by the left wing swindle.
