Elon Musk's tribute to himself.
He sends one of his electric cars into space...

This is what happens when technology developed by a government agency and paid for by the people of a nation is privatized.

Trump knows the US is falling behind in 5G technology and wants to develop it using a government agency.
Again it will be paid for by the people of the US through taxes. Once the product is mature it will be
handed over to the private sector which will make billionaires ever richer.
This is capitalism at its worst.

It would have been far better if this very expensive toy rocket sent the 3 richest fat cats of the US into space.
Then the wealth could have been distributed to the people who actually earned it.
It would doubled the income of the lower 50% of Americans for at least a year.

Capitalism produces fat cats like rats produce litters of tiny rats.
Once a year the three richest fat cats of the US are to be sent into space so the people who actually
do all the work can enjoy a better standard of living.

SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket lifted off at 3:45 p.m., inaugurating itself as the most powerful launch vehicle in service and sending founder Elon Musk’s Tesla (TSLA) Roadster towards a one-way ride out of Earth orbit.

The 230-foot-tall rocket launched at Launch Complex 39A here after a series of delays caused by high winds aloft. As the countdown neared zero and its 27 first-stage engines lit in sequence, clouds of smoke shot out from one side of the pad as the Falcon Heavy and its triple first-stage boosters first eased off the pad and then sprinted into the skies, trailing a blinding jet of fire.

Seconds later, the sound of 5 million pounds of thrust arrived–an avalanche of noise that raced across the water in front of the press site and rushed over journalists as a crackling thunder.

5 million pounds of thrust.. big deal
The Saturn V rocket developed in the 1960s had 7,600,000 pounds of thrust. Nothing new here.


If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

To highlight the downfall of America. Frivolity is the last stage of the rich while the poor become more apathetic.
