Elon Musk for President!!

Quite honestly, we really don’t think this is our original idea. Think of all the people who said to themselves “Hey, I would have thought of that!”, & realize a few of those already did!

But before we discuss the positives of this matter, let us give a general background environment; an ambiance; a “stage setting” for our candidate. For this we need Ross Perot!

Mr. Perot was a successful IBM salesman (from Texas) who was so successful, he made more in commissions than the CEO of IBM. For this, mgt called him in & said they would reduce his territory. In response Mr. Perot quit & started his own IT firm (using IBM mainframes he used to sell for them) that ended up – after hard work, of course – as a multi-billion dollar, international firm.

Having enough money & being unhappy with national affairs, he decided to run for President. Obviously he lost, otherwise you would recognize his name immediately. He did, however, make a very strong 3rd party candidate in a strictly-controlled, old, well established 2 party system.

All we want to say here is: in a completely more “established” even fixed political environment, a 3rd party candidate w/ less than stellar name recognition was recognized – and voted for – as a valid candidate.

It must be said, we do not speak for Mr. Musk & simply wanted to say we would support him over the current POTUS in an election.

As said, we cannot speak “for “ him, but possibly – like dozens, upon dozens of social media channels dedicated to Elon et al, topics we dare risk a few words “about” him. A few of these channels are good & informative; knowledgeable about their field, but some are just click-bait, regurgitating old news with tabloid-like catch-phrase titles.

In SpaceX, Mr. Musk is competing with 2 other billionaires with interest in (drum roll) … space! Of the other 2, bozos sees mfg in the sky & wants to profit from a “spaceAmazon”. A sideline is giving rich tourists a short spin up to lower orbit. All together just a business plan, aimed at profit – nothing more.

The short lower orbit joy-ride is also part of the business model of Sir Branson, simply expanding on his existing aviation enterprise. He can’t even afford rockets & needs to tow his vehicles up half- way & then give them a rocket-engine push. Have not heard much since last flight when the GPS device they got from Amazon sent them astray on the way down…(OK, maybe it was something else?=)

Mr. Musk has clearly demonstrated he understands the business aspects of large enterprises. But when you think of expanding the role of humans in the universe, trying the help save the only planet were on now, we see him as the visionaire of our times – a bit like Michelangelo lived in his times. Both did/are going to enjoy success & failure; suffer abuse from envious or flattering ones; & eventually not have their work fully, widely recognized until long after death.

This whole idea came to us as a natural progression of our political circus today: Republicans, through the Orange God Glob, have shown that adequate name recognition and just half of a good cover story suffices for more voting success than many a long public career – regardless if that career was an honest one (so many aren’t), an effective one (in a political environment that basks in status quo), or a useful one (who can really say that for a vast number of politicians).

If Mr. Musk would run on a party ticket or as an independent, we dare not venture that far out. But the few choices are obvious: Democrats are well-established & would not allow an external candidate. That leaves running as an independent or in a new Republican Party. The latter is a bit more complex, so we will dissect that first.

The current chaotic mess that popular, honest media still overly respectfully calls the Republican Party will be reinvigorated or simply reborn by the likes of Adam Kinzinger, Liz Cheney & other brave souls. Current conditions cannot continue, else the whole country will go up in flamesi. That’s why -from the very beginning– Russia has been so eager to help Trumpism. But the country needs a conservative party to complete the political spectrum. Again, we cannot speak for Mr. Musk & certainly not rigorously define Mr. Musk’s political beliefs. But we do know, the man has gotten a raw deal from Pres. Biden & has openly stated his disapproval of subsidies. The current Republicans ran in ‘16 & ‘20 without a platform – simply on a fake personal reputation! If in 2024 there is a conservative party or even just a movement, one void of insanity, idiotic foolishness, endless hate & hypocracy; void of all the hypocrites currently in the House or Senate who are willing to stand by & let democracy be destroyed, it will need a unifying entity that allows people to put so much of this discord behind them. This in turn implies again choosing someone from outside the established political order.

On the other hand, if we still have this fantasy-driven Republican circus, an independent would give vent to so many sane & conservative (or simply independent) voters; to rational, honest folks who are looking for a valid alternative to the Democrtic Party.(2)

This is all an off-the-wall proposition, so we’ll start to wrap it up & just mention that “Musk” name recognition is far bigger than anything seen in recent memory, gigantic even (we started this article before the Time Magazine “Man of the Year” award.); that such recognition will be boosted & kept high by SpaceX, Starlink activities that are creating so many jobs; that after finding out how “fabricated” the Chump Trump name really was, people will appreciate a genuine success, a real businessman.

And a final tidbit concerning the spat with Pres. Biden as it concerns the UAW: UAW workers are not dumb, they know the EVs from their firms are made in Mexico; they see the new, gigantic factories being built inside America by Mr. Musk; and …. they are going to pay careful attention to what he will work out with Industriegewerkschaft Metall in Germany!!

iSee our post “The 2022 Deathknell of the Republican Party”.

(2) …wish I knew how to add footnotes here… We SUPPORT the Democratic Party – especially in this current crises that America faces! But being democratic (small “d”) means respecting the full spectrum of political opinion (’till they become seditionist!!!! of course.)

Absurdistan meets Vietnam!!!

…. Wew, hold on… got to catch my breath…

As we write, news reports  are  talking about Afghanistan pres. fleeing Kabul. This comes on the heels of announcement few hours ago about additional American troops having to be sent to protect the last lucky ones as they flee the country.

We continue to support duly-elected, legitimate President Joe – just a good man – Biden, but let’s be clear: this retreat was botched!

It should have been clear that when that orange mess at the White House last year “made his deal” with the Taliban, it was an open door to the Taliban to plan for nationwide action. It seems even the Pentagon people have forgotten the debacle, the pictures, of those last days in Vietnam. Or.. political decisions were made without military evaluations (IF they existed).

Why not send in 100,000 troops; aircraft; burn those papers; process the helpers w/ visas and immediately start evacuating? A month, a sign of strength, certainly not a sinking hole in the American military budget. Does’nt have to end with ten A-10s necklace style circling Kabul perimeter and sending a shitload of these shitheads to their fantasy heaven as a last picture, but it could have been handled smarter. Maybe just blow up all those Humvees left behind & now quickly transporting Taliban to Kabul.

Instead we have pictorially, broadcast worldwide, the EXACT same scenarios as those historic pictures from Vietnam.

Nevertheless, with all that said,


Our hearts go out to the Afghan forces!!! So many of these people went to the military because it’s a job in a country that does not have a lot of … jobs! No problem – US military branches recruit successfully because so many military duties are high tech requiring advanced training that costs so much in the private sector. In other countries its just nice to earn a real wage.

So then comes the training and then arming. No problem, most people can learn given the right training. So, what happened? Why should some Afghan forces run, hide, try to escape? In essence: NOT fight! Here, the parallel to Vietnam just screams out at you! The Afghan forces were trained, armed, but – JUST AS IN VIETNAM – they are completely unmotivated! Not DE-motivated, there never was any motivation. Didn’t these Pentagon biggies never see that in… these last two multi- year wars? Just as in Vietnam, simple, ordinary people are asked to sacrifice their lives for a completely corrupt, ineffective government! Why is it so easy to overlook the brother of a country’s president being a major international drug dealer?! No, look! See the soldiers training, don’t they march chic… and they shoot so well, see how they fight (as long as they are next to US personnel that guarantees the aircraft in the sky above will protect them all ! = ]  No, asking these people for the ultimate sacrifice for a government that has nothing to do with public welfare was always too much.

Its trite, but we have to say it: “You cannot make this stuff up!

At this very moment a US Sec. of State is painting a completely BS rosy picture of this debacle, followed by a Republican blaming everything on President  “the legitimate one” Biden, completely ignoring how their Republican orange despot gobd personally invited the Taliban to Camp David, so he could give them anything they wanted as long as they didn’t embarrass him. All the while the TV pics from Vietnam are rolling….

Why can’t this Sec. State talking head recognize where it goes from here. The $illions supporting the Taliban, coming from Saudi Arabia, also come with strings attached. Just as those in charge being so surprised by the rapidity of current events will also be surprised by how quickly AlQuida et. al. are parading again in Afghanistan.

The Chinese commies (hence Cc) see what’s coming and their quick well-wishes to the Taliban is in recognition that the evil vile oozing from Afghanistan will flow westward (symbolically speaking). That’s the same Cc that are imprisoning millions of Moslem Uighurs for no more than being who they are at this very moment.

We wrap up with a delicate subject. We don’t think Islam lends itself to peaceful cooperation. Yes, there are those millions of Muslims who talk about how peaceful Islam is, how peaceful they are. In so many past cases, these claims have only shown them to be the Chamberlains of Islam. They will be the first to want to – peacefully, of course – save their business, job, property, necks by joining the support of a new regime, any new regime. Has everyone forgotten all the youth from every – every – western country who joined AlQuida when it was hot news? Whole swaths of Africa are lawless, with Islamic bands roaming, raping, robbing, killing & crippling civilians. Most “wealthy” Middle East countries are held together with authoritarian, often corrupt regimes. When one of them wants to be modern, progressive like Qatar, they are attacked by their “brothers”. No, international solutions are not going to come from oil-dependent, frail, or authoritarian countries. God helps those that help themselves.

Fellow Americans:

Forget  this latest Absurdistan! You have offered enough money and sacrificed enough American lives & limbs to introduce peace and democracy to millions of Afghanies. You have done more than enough! Yes, they will have it tough, but resistance has to come internally. The democratic fire lit by American & international players  might only smolder for a while, but the Taliban is a self-destruct phenomena. When they show their true color – the black of blood – they’ll seed their own internal resistance. Religious fanatics need constant stream of converts to reinforce the rightness of their righteousness. When they start mass killings of those they can’t convert; when they show they have nothing to offer in urban management, when they relinguish power to their  most violent & extreme elements – imported or domestic – the problems will start.

Concentrate on making America strong. Do some infrastructure mending to facilitate travel, business & trade. Stop passing laws to keep black citizens from voting.  The emergencies of climate change & Covid need your full attention; there is no time for silly conspiracy theories (or silly political figures). In time America & rest of the west will face direct threats from extreme Islam again  – prepare now & be ready then!

Respectfully yours,
