    I really just like Eric Peters.... if you read some of his articles, he's fact driven and on point.

    The EV question nobody's asking...

    What happens to all those millions of EV batteries that cannot be recycled (yet)?

    I think this Ford advert is having a dig at Elon Musk and Tesla.

    First they ignore you.

    Then they mock you.

    Then they copy you.

    Blah Blah Blah. It's not clickbait. It's a simple question. It forces you to think and challenges perceptions.

    Does that mean I need to short TSLA?

    By the way - there's a twitter feed called "TSLAQ" that is funny to follow!

    Calling him a fraud when you see Tesla's driving around, have seen his rockets launch, and likely seen videos of the Boring Company tunnels is foolish. There is literal proof he isnt a fraud all over the world. Tesla is popular for those that own them. When I can afford one, I plan on getting one.

    Yes, he has a history of treating people poorly. I just read the Wired article by Charles Duhigg last night. Jobs was the same way. I dont have to like him as a person to recognize his genius.

    I am not sure what profitability has to do with fraud. He is still providing value to people. There is more to the world than profit. Just look at what he did for Puerto Rico after the hurricane.

    I can't believe I'm replying to this, but people who believes he's a fraud just lacks the imagination to believe what doesn't yet exist. Not everything he does turns to gold, not every decision is correct but at least he's got the balls to put it on the line and go bigger than anyone on the planet.
