T and R, pb4!! 🙂 The photos of the Northern Lights/Aurora Borealis are just……stunning. My desktop is a photo taken onboard a hurricane hunter aircraft. The full moon is shining through the perfectly formed eye of Hurricane Sam. Nature is simply beyond amazing.

Elon Musk started a war of words with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Twitter on Sunday after the senator reiterated his stance that “the extremely wealthy” must “pay their fair share.”

Musk, currently the world’s richest man, with a net worth of $285 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, told Sanders in response, “I keep forgetting that you’re still alive.”

He later referenced his recent sale of Tesla stock, saying, “Want me to sell more stock, Bernie? Just say the word.”

Musk previously ripped the Democratic proposal for an annual tax on billionaires’ investment gains when lawmakers were first considering the tax as a way to fund the party’s reconciliation package.

Elon Musk is the typical billionaire yahoo from South Africa who was in the right place at the right time. $$$$$$$ He’s a ruthless flake who may not be as malignant as Bezos nor as dumb as Zuckerberg. He comes from a long line of human cretins who all think their feces are made out of gold cos of their bank accounts. 💩💩

Yep, right place- time and a healthy dollop of luck on their side. Too bad people equate $$$$$$ with being smart not necessaraly the case.

President Biden will announce on Monday that his administration is moving to block new federal oil and gas leasing within a 10-mile radius around Chaco Canyon in New Mexico, one of the nation’s oldest and most culturally significant Native American sites, according to White House officials.

The announcement is to come as Mr. Biden hosts a tribal nations summit meeting at the White House at which, administration officials said, he will also highlight steps that he has taken to improve public safety and justice for Native Americans.

The move to restrict fossil fuel drilling around a major Native American site dovetails two of Mr. Biden’s top policy priorities: addressing climate change and injustices against Native Americans.

Although Mr. Biden has pushed an ambitious climate agenda, he has come under fierce criticism from Native American environmental activists for his administration’s approval of Line 3, a $9 billion pipeline that would carry hundreds of thousands of barrels of oil through Minnesota’s delicate watersheds and tribal lands.

The step is likely to generate significant pushback from Republicans and from New Mexico’s oil and gas industry, particularly at a moment when oil and gas prices have surged to five-year highs. The administration has also recently proposed tough new regulations on oil and gas producers

Hey SloMoJoe, how about cancelling the leases in the Gulf of Mexico? Making the petroleum crooks clean up their rusted out rigs and pipelines? Seriously tackling the enormous ecological Dead Zone where the Mississippi drains into the GOM? Too mentally taxing for you?
