I’ve been waiting for years to get rid of that thing. Elon has lost his mind, and I want no visible association with him. I’m stuck using Starlink until something else is available, sadly, but I don’t have to drive it in public!

On topic: since he’s an immigrant himself, he should know better. Anyone here illegally cannot vote.

There is nothing that Musk has to sell that I can afford. So I have no worries about owning something of his.

Wed Feb 21, 2024, 07:52 PM
Feb 21

Projection is a defense mechanism. The project-or believes in their own essential innocence, iirc.

This is more like an "offense" mechanism. He knows he ain't innocent - just entitled.

We trust the space program to this guy? The sky ain't the limit.

And yes, it seems to be a common characteristic of our oligarchs to assume universal criminality. That's the ocean they swim in.

He should have stayed and helped the government fight to stay in power instead of fleeing to physical safety and then expressing support for what the old government stood for.

There might be a few dumb enough to try to vote, but the thing that keeps voter fraud pretty low is the extremely poor risk/reward ratio.

Sun Feb 18, 2024, 12:50 AM
Feb 2024

where a good number of people live but are not incorporated into s city or town, allow them to form "special districts" such as fire districts an water districts with the authority to assess taxes to keep them running. I happen to live in one of each of those. Non-citizens may vote in special district elections if they own land in the district, alone or jointly. No taxation without representation, after all. But it would surprise me if someone not here legally would be allowed to vote even in these. If I were here illegally, I certainly would not try. I've read too much about ICE detention centers, razor wire, stuff like that.

You have to register to vote. That's going to require at least proof of citizenship, social security number, and some sort of ID card that is approved by the state you're going to vote in.

Entering the country is not a criminal offense, but rather a civil offense subject to fine and/or deportation. MAGAs sure love to throw that word around while ignoring the fact that the Slobfather is a repeat offender of numerous legal statutes.

It is so offensive to call people illegal. The act or deed can be illegal but not a person. A person can commit an illegal act.
