Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
It’s not because you’re a woman. It’s because you’re so incredibly tiresome. – The Pantsuit Princess, dressed in her favorite Dr. Evil attire, complained to an audience that she is tired of being told by fellow Democrats to stop running around the world blaming everyone but herself for her loss in the 2016 election. The Fainting Felon whined that “no one ever told a man (who’d lost a presidential election) to go away.” She then cited Al Gore, John Kerry, John McCain and Mitt Romney as examples.
Of course, as with literally every other word that escapes from the Coughing Crook’s lips in public, this latest in such a long, long list of complaints is an outright lie. Of the four examples she cites, there were all manner of Democrats at the time telling the incessantly complaining and lying Al Gore and John Kerry to just go away and shut up already after they, too, went around the country whining about how mean ol’ George W. Bush had done all sorts of things to “steal” the 2000 and 2004 elections from them. Gore was especially resented by Democrats who just wanted to move on for his refusal to just. shut. UP. before he decided to shift gears and go get rich from mounting his global warming scam.
As for McCain and Romney, well, they’re Republicans (ok, well, McCain is sort of a Republican, anyway), and when Republicans lose a presidential election, they accept their defeat and move on, so yes, no one had to tell them to go away. Even Richard Nixon, after having the 1960 election stolen from him by John F. Kennedy’s mob associates, decided to just accept the result and stay quiet about it for the good of the country.
But of course, with the Grasping Grifter, the good of the country never comes to mind. It’s all about her. Everything is and always has been all about her.
In the end, Hillary is like that drunk guy at the party who just won’t go home, still sitting on your sofa at 3:00 in the morning asking for another beer and telling annoying stories you’ve heard a thousand times before. You know, the guy you have to escort out your front door and shove into the Uber you called for him so he won’t kill himself trying to drive home. That guy.
Just as that guy never goes away voluntarily, no one should expect the Whining Wino’s worldwide whining tour to end anytime soon.
If you want to own a Tesla, you probably better go get one soon. – The shaky electric car maker Tesla announced on Friday that it is having to recall almost half of the automobiles it has manufactured in its entire history due to corroding bolts that threaten the loss of power steering.
This new recall of more than 123,000 of the company’s Model S sedans comes amid ongoing issues that have prevented the production of more than a handful of the company’s new, more compact Model 3 sedans, and CEO Elon Musk’s struggles to raise more money to keep his chronically unprofitable company afloat. This is a company whose business model only “works” when it is propped up by massive taxpayer subsidies and a stellar PR campaign consisting of a never-ending series of bold promises for the future. Even with billions of dollars worth of those subsidies, Tesla has only managed to turn a “profit” in two calendar quarters during its entire existence, and the constant churning of unfulfilled promises suffers from the law of diminishing returns over time.
Tesla’s stock has lost 1/3rd of its value in recent weeks, and that selloff promises to continue next week after the latest recall announcement, which came after markets closed. Barring an influx of new, highly-risky private equity, the company seems on the verge of running out of cash in the near future, and may have to resort to issuing a round of new stock, which would diminish the value of current shares even further.
Musk has repeatedly proven to be very adept at finding the money necessary to keep his company afloat in the near term, and will likely find a way to keep it going this time as well. But in the longer term, Tesla sure looks like a proverbial house of cards that appears destined to at some point collapse under the weight of its fundamental inability to produce cars at a competitive price. You know, like every other auto maker on the face of the earth must do in order to survive.
Just another day in the Pantsuit Princes won’t go away willingly America.
That is all.
