It's Probably a Good Thing That I'm Not the Governor of California

Tesla CEO Elon Musk threatened Saturday to pull the company’s factory and headquarters out of California in an escalating spat with local officials who have stopped the company from reopening its electric vehicle factory.
I'd tell him: "I'm not intimidated by a bunch of protesters walking around with guns and I'm sure as shit not going to be intimidated by the likes of you."

But you don't say things like that to whiny-ass crybaby billionaires who crater their companies on Twitter.

I'd tell him to get the fuck out. "You're out of business, Dude, fuck you."

He ain't doing anything that's worth a fuck.

Having lived in the East Bay for 35 years I can confidently say that he can take Tesla and fuck right off. We didn't miss NUMMI when it went tits up, and they won't miss the latest occupants of that facility.

HAR HAR HAR! It's a good thing for everyone that you aren't in charge, Comrade, because if you were the civil war would have already started.

Spoiler alert - you are going to lose that one.

We've already won it, white-dawg, you just ain't smart enough to see it.

The sound you don't hear is me jackin' a round into my well-oiled AR.

Oh, look! Somebody dislodged the rock and le laid canadien has popped up.

Well yes, the Canadian has a lot to say as he stands in line to surrender
his rifles. Most others will likely report they were lost in a terrible
accident or fire....

Komifornia, leaving might be an option as all their over regulation
and the like. Me I presume Musk is frustrated and being the sort
that seems to want to do more than sit its not hard to imagine.

The plant is highly automated, if physical distancing and PPE are
available its not like meat packing plant with every one side by
side. Likely a hell of a lot cleaner too.

At the other end of it all even if hes up and running whos buying?

Eck!

Elaboration is in order: 'civil war' is generally defined as brother against brother and I've ample evidence if my brothers and I were to ever again meet there would be bloodshed (neither one of which have any familiarity with), but I figure when old outlaws and old cops can shake hands and agree to work together to solve a common problem, that war, if it ever existed, is over.

Apologies Cap't, if I've hijacked the thread.

So now the damn fool is reopening his factory in violation of the county's order.
He says he has a lot of money. The first worker to fall ill at his plant needs to relieve him of a huge chunk of it. Not millions, billions.
