Texas Tesla law doesn’t pass, no direct sales yet

Was she trying to make a joke or is Rep. Thompson really that dumb? Nevermind — I just learned that she’s quite old. Just the kind of out-of-touch person the automobile dealers want to keep in office (for whatever the reason).

Democratic state Rep. Senfronia Thompson criticized the company by saying that “it would have been wiser if Mr. Tesla had sat down with the car dealers first.” But there is no “Mr. Tesla” involved in the company, which is named after the late inventor Nikola Tesla and is founded and run by Elon Musk.

Michael Moore: Some Final Thoughts on the Death of Osama bin Laden

Most of what Mr. Moore says here makes sense, regardless of his politics. Read it and decide for yourself. Not all of his logic holds up 100%, but the sentiment is there. For the most part, I’m with you, Michael. A couple points he makes:

We did exactly what bin Laden said he wanted us to do: Give up our freedoms (like the freedom to be assumed innocent until proven guilty), engage our military in Muslim countries so that we will be hated by Muslims, and wipe ourselves out financially in doing so.

Assuming it was possible to take him alive, I think his victims, the future, and the restoration of the American Way deserved better.
