Hey TESLA owners and fans, do you find Elon Musk repulsive?

  • I have another reason that Elon is hated yet so successful (tell us oh wise one)

  • Whatever, TCL is just jealous of Tesla and its marvelous cars

As a Tesla owner, I don't really care about what Elon says/does in his personal life -- I care about the product. It doesn't change the fact that I like my car and the fact that it's well-built (knock-on wood, some aren't as lucky) and serves our family well. I think Zuckerberg is a douche, but I still use Facebook. I don't agree with Chick-fil-a's prior donations in opposition to the LGBTQ community, but I still GLADLY eat there.

I ****ing love CFA. I ****ing love it so much. I took my wife there for the first time and her eyes basically rolled into the back of her head. There's something in the meat.
Too bad your meat never did the eye roll trick for her :LOL: j/k

But yeah, I've been eating at Chick-fil-a since I was kid. Back then, it was a treat because we didn't go that often since it was expensive as f**k compared to McDs. But when we did go, YUM-O!

Now, as a 40-something, our family goes a couple of times a month; and I MUST have my lemonade :) They also have the nicest employees in fast food, PERIOD.

As a general rule, I don't go digging into the lives of business owners to find out their political views. I know that a whole lot of people have views opposed to mine, and just is what it is. I'm not going to boycott half the world in order to try and make a point.

That all changes when a business owner decides to make a very public stand on an issue that I disagree with. CFA is a great example, since the Cathy family is very open and public about being anti-LGBTQ. Because of this, I no longer give them my business. I'm a guitarist that plays metal, and I used to be a huge Iced Earth fan. I see used to be, since Jon Schaffer (the founder and band leader) decided to take part on 1/6 and was caught macing a cop. So, I deleted all of his music of my iPhone and moved on with my life. Elon Musk is an easier case, since don't see the appeal in Teslas (not all EVs, just Teslas), but his antics have pretty much guaranteed I'll never spend a dime on anything with his name attached to it. I agree that Mark Zucerberg is a douche, but notice that he is very careful to not take a public stance on hot button issues.

So, if you own business, you need to keep your damn mouth shut. No matter your political views. My wife own a pet sitting business, and she happily accepts money from people who think the election was stolen from Trump, as well as people who think the DNC robbed Bernie. She just keeps her lips buttoned and cashes those checks. I cannot fathom why anyone in business wouldn't do the same.
So is this akin to "Shut up and dribble?"

Humans are going to human. People can have a different viewpoint from me, I don't care. I can still be agreeable with you. My father-in-law is staunchly anti-gay marriage, and is opposite of me on many hot-button issues (you can probably guess the other big one). But we still get along -- not because I have to because he's my FIL -- but because I genuinely love the guy and his views don't define our relationship.
