Hughes earned his fortune, Musk swindled his from the government.

Since Hughes was a military contractor, it would be fair to say that he swindled his from the government as well.

I used to go out to eat with a socialist friend every week, and had no issues with his che t shirts and etc socialismo memorabilia. One time he was ranting about how Chile was getting screwed by the US capitalists, and I asked him to explain it to me.

So he said Chile had to pay a fortune for copper wire made from copper ore mined in Chile itself! He left out the part where some American company had to buy the ore from the Chilean mine, pay to have it shipped to the USA, pay to have it refined into pure copper, paid to have it drawn into wire, paid to have it insulated, and then sold to whoever wanted copper wire. You remind me of him.

I've got a friend who likes to rant about the Mueller investigation being a witch hunt. He's not impressed by the fact that it's netted many "witches" who have broken the law. You remind me of him.

And Chile was a socialist democracy then.

Perhaps the amazingly successful witch hunt will ensnare a wyche who used to routinely email thousands of top secrets on a non secure line and server.

The one who wasn't elected? As the saying goes, she should be the material used on the wall because people can't get over her.

I'm just over here chuckling at Elon Musk smoking weed and talking about being in a universe simulator.

If you don't take life too seriously, you'll find that your blood pressure returns to normal and you feel great.

If Musk were like Hughes, he'd have been able to put off the SEC for years, like Howard allegedly did to avoid having to divest his TWA stock until it was worth what he wanted to dump it at. Or maybe that was the stockholders who were after him. I can't remember the details now, but they were vividly embellished in the fiction of James Ellroy. Then again, what would Hughes be like on Twitter?

Now, now... Howie got his money the old fashioned way, he inherited it. Dad left him an oil bit company years ahead of it's time to finance his passion for racing planes and chasing women. I don't know where Elon got his, but calling the Thai SEAL a "child molester"  for trying to rescue kids from a cave said to me Elon will be in his enclosed private penthouse before long.

Conversations like this remind me of an old George Carlin bit;  'What do people in politics do?  They come up with a never ending slew of mud to sling at each other to keep the public fighting while they run to the bank with our money."

'nuff said.

Leave it to the liberal left to bring their stupidity and animosity onto a radio forum. Isnít anything sacred anymore?

For musk to achieve Hughes status he will also need to be borg'd by a organised religion. I suggest some good old time snake hanlin religy!
