Elon Musk Moves His Business To Texas

He's leaving California.

Democrats live to play the race/ethnic card. Aside from socialism and drive-thru abortions, it’s the only card in their deck. Well one ethnic hustling California Democrat’s bigotry and anti-business attitude is going to cost the state a lot of lost tax dollars and a myriad amount of jobs.

But since Democrats would rather have citizens dependent on government than working, it shouldn’t bother her much. The Democrat also made her statement with a simple vulgar flourish that is the mark of the badly mannered and worse educated.

However, California’s loss will be to the gain of Texas. As a state of low taxes and limited government, Texas deserves such a boon. As for State Rep. Gonzalez of California, perhaps she can use her limited vocabulary to explain the job loss to the thousands now out of work.

FNC: “Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Friday suggested that his decision to move the automaker’s headquarters from Fremont, California, to Austin, Texas, was inspired by a Democratic assemblywoman who tweeted in 2020.

Musk made the announcement Thursday during a shareholder meeting, citing affordability, space and convenience as some of the reasons behind the move, adding that Tesla will also continue to expand in California. On Friday, the billionaire engineer responded to an article from Tesla news website Tesmanian.com titled, ‘Tesla Moved its HQ to Texas Following Explicit Offer from California Assemblywoman,’ saying, ‘Exactly.’

‘F–k Elon Musk,’ California state representative Lorena Gonzalez tweeted on May 9, 2020. Gonzalez went on to condemn the entrepreneur’s handling of COVID-19. She also criticized Musk’s use of billions of dollars in government subsidies to fund Tesla, some of which come directly from California.”

Do you think President Biden should be impeached for the crisis in Afghanistan and loss of American lives?

Says Gonzalez, “California has highly subsidized a company that has always disregarded worker safety & well-being, has engaged in union busting & bullies public servants. I probably could’ve expressed my frustration in a less aggressive way. Of course, no one would’ve cared if I tweeted that.” Okay, final point taken.

She continued: “And, the deaths from Covid-19 in California are disproportionately Latino. Our communities have been the hardest hit. By far. Maybe that’s why we take the public health officials’ warning and directions so seriously.”

Ah, the ethnic card. Yes, death is much worse for my fellow Latins. Why? Because everyone knows all Anglo-Saxons are immortal. I mean, haven’t you seen “Highlander”? Thus another horrible example of “white” privilege. By the way, Latins are an ethnicity, not a race. So it’s not the race card. But, six of one half dozen of the other.

“Highlander” ostensibly started out with Celts, not Anglo-Saxons. Of course all those Immortals were actually ETs.

If Musk really took the money & ran, I’ll give Rep. Gonzo half a point. But businesses shouldn’t be propped up by governments anyway.

This is not as devastating as the headline intimates. All Musk is doing is moving his corporate HQ to Texas. He’s leaving the manufacturing process in California. If Musk was serious, he would move the manufacturing to Texas as well.

It’s a start – but to be honest – no big deal. It seems like Elon Musk is only moving his HQ activities whilst retaining manufacturing in Kalifornistan – maybe I misread this but I’m sure “someone” will correct me if I’m wrong ( or even if I’m right !! ) ;)
