Outwardly brazen Musk is so fun when signs confirm the opposite is true.
Musk's anxiety over the need for $TSLA cash is what often prompts his poor behavioral control during live presentations
-cutting off employees
-rushed a product launch
-hard sell V3 for consumer cash ✅
Musk is rightfully sued frequently; and, he's not phased by lawsuits, because he does not think he's done anything wrong.
Another $TSLA lawsuit did not prompt the rushed V3 solar tile launch, Musk's anxiety over the need for cash did.

Watch for:
• inconsistent & contradictory language to action
(a disconnect between what the product can do & what's being sold)
• manipulation of facts while not recognizing consumer rights
(incentives benefit company, not consumer)

The sun has always been the best antidepressant. It is especially potent against (un)consciously (agitated-depressive) science-denying sun-, cosmic rays-, clouds- & ocean- (low-pass filter of the climate system because of their heat content) deniers in #IPCC.
An insight into the agitated-depressive world of a physicist seeing CO2 as "inevitable byproduct of combustion" and not as the source of life
While (agitated-depressive) science-denying sun-, cosmic rays-, clouds- and ocean-deniers such as these Swiss #IPCC-"scientists" are still predicting the end of all glaciers in Switzerland by 2100...

"From time to time, we must carry out terrorist attacks in which uninvolved people die. This will steer the entire state & the entire population. The primary goal of such an attack is not the dead but the survivors, because they must be guided & influenced."

Le hashtag #nocleanmeat a été utilisé pour la première fois le 11 avril 2019, sauf erreur de ma part.

La plupart des comptes qui tweetent sur ce hashtag ont été crées en avril 2019, exemples: @GeorgesBazou @francoiDaviid @env_lov @LuccasStephane @RoyerBenoit4

With the final hearing in the SFFA vs. Harvard trial coming up on Wednesday, here's a (long) thread on who Students for Fair Admissions/Ed Blum is and the billionaire libertarian organizations that pay its/his bills. #defenddiversity
Students for Fair Admissions (SFFA) was founded in 2015 by Edward Blum. Blum has a history of fighting affirmative action. He was behind the case Abigail Fisher lost against the University of Texas. @nhannahjones wrote a great story about that case.…
Before creating SFFA in 2015, Blum was the head of the Project on Fair Representation, and before that the Campaign for a Color-Blind America.
