    That’s gotta be old, unless the Tweet of God reactivated his account. Let me check. It was great.

    This is the second time recently I’ve seen this from a Republican. It might be an emerging talking point.

    Whether irony or sincerity, that last part is hilarious

    I'm sorry, but as someone who flies often, the last thing I want is a fetus in charge of air traffic control!

    Next Marj should personally calculate the amount of splooge wasted by young 'Merican males and how that could've been turned into sperm banks to make babies to address the staffing shortages.

    I pray that the right makes depopulation the Next Big Problem. Because it doesn't take a rocket surgeon to know that there's an extraordinarily easy solution that doesn't involve making abortion a crime.

    Making gays illegal and force them to reproduce heterosexually?

    Republicans would certainly take that approach before allowing more immigrants in to fill job vacancies!

    In the short term, yes. Capitalism, as we know it, depends on growth and the easiest way to grow is to have a larger population as that adds consumers and producers.

    But in the long term, no. Her ideas come from a place far older than capitalism, and fundamentally they are not compatible. Capitalism works by providing people with pleasures that turn into necessities all for creating a life that is more than just serving your lord and making more babies. Even without abortion a rising standard of living means less children. As my mother likes to joke when asked why she had a child every year for four years and then stopped, "that's the year we bought a television".

    Loud and clear......

    We will go out and find the conspirators, not just in government but in the media… We’re going to come after you—whether it’s criminal or civilly, we’ll figure that out. But yeah, we’re putting you all on notice and Steve, this is why they hate us. This is why we’re tyrannical.”

    — Trump adviser Kash Patel, in an interview with Steve Bannon, saying Donald Trump is serious about revenge.

    It would fit into Musk's(and TBH, most "free market" republicans) standard approach, which is "build something and figure out how to get the government to buy it for 10x what it should cost."

    I know I come across as a reflexive defender of Tesla here, but when it comes to the end of civilization, I'd much rather have an electric car than a gas car. Eventually, the gas will run out or become inaccessible, but there are lots of ways to make electricity that don't require a community. To compare with the Mad Max series:

    1) In the original Mad Max, there was still civilization - an organized police force - so presumably there was still production of gasoline somewhere.
    2) In The Road Warrior, there was a community with a gasoline refinery.
    3) In Thunderdome, there was a community capable of making more fuel. Maybe it came from pig crap, I don't remember the details, but Tina Turner ran the place.
    4) In Fury Road, there were communities with specialized products which traded with one another. The Bullet Farm made bullets, apparently, and Gas Town was the source of gas.

    In a truly apocalyptic scenario - think Terry Nation's Survivors or Stephen King's The Stand - the production and distribution of gasoline will come to an end, and then once you've scavenged every gas station and abandoned vehicle, you're out of fuel and your gas vehicles become immobile. But solar panels will continue to make electricity for you, unless the sun goes out which is a different kind of apocalypse.
