As if we didn't already know that.
This dialogue was punctuated by a pithy tweet from Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, who describes herself as a progressive Democrat, “F*ck Elon Musk.”
At that time, we had no idea how much that tweet, and attitude, would cost us.
No, a lot of people knew what it would cost; people like you didn't listen or didn't believe it.
Nine months later, Elon Musk is gone. He is selling all his personal real estate in the state. He is now a resident of the state of Texas. He has moved his philanthropic foundation to Texas, too.
Consider the unfathomable irony of progressive Democrats forcing Elon Musk to give up on California.
When Rush Limbaugh moved out of New Effing York, the idiot currently Mayor said "If I'd known that was all it took to get rid of Limbaugh, I'd have raised taxes years ago." Someone at one of the papers did a piece pointing out what an idiot the Mayor was, including "You know how much he paid to the city last year, counting up all the taxes and fees? Now it's all gone, and you think it's funny." Then, when lots of rich people started getting out of the city and state because of the raising taxes and the idiot Wuhan rules ruining the restaurant/theater/museum/social reasons they'd kept living there, Comrade Mayor said 'good riddance'. Now they're losing all that tax income, and anyone in city/state government with a brain is wondering how much they can raise taxes on everyone else before the mobs start hanging politicians and bureaucrats('not nearly soon enough', I'd say).
They never effing learn.
