There is a substantial market share which is being foolishly discarded.

This is how Fox News grew so quickly.

Money is money.
If Musk were to chase this, investors would flock to it.
Let’s do a quick survey. How many current Silicon Valley Tech companies like FB, Twatter, and Goodle, have their own space program and can launch their own or other private communications satellites into orbit?

Gee, I don’t even think Amazing.com (Ama7_0n) can do that?

P.S. Not that I’d want to give that much power to Musk, but he could.

Well, he is a South African and has seen what has happened in his country of birth. I like him so far, but he hasn't challenged the Green New Deal proponents to answer where the electricity for his electric cars is going to come from. He's smart, he knows that solar and wind will not work. He knows the answers, he just hasn't asked the questions yet. I'm neutral on him at the moment.

Really? Troll much MrMojok?

Are you sure you're in the right place for spewing your venom. I'm sure you're all over many social media sites vomiting this dribble, just cant imagine this being a captive audience for ya.

Stay safe Brothers! Wannabe Pol Pot window lickers like MrMojok are feeling empowered. LMAO.....

I'm on Parler and just got on Gab but it's so slow because a lot of people who were kicked off Twatter are going on there. Lol I was silenced on Twatter, but set up a new account. It's hilarious on there, they suspend accounts that don't jive with their philosophy or "woke" behavior. Social media, all controlled by Stashi trash tactics and they have no problem silencing free speech. What a mess it all is right now.

I’ve been telling people who are concerned to focus on real world relationships with people in their geographical area.
Develop those relationships and learn who is trustworthy/competent.

Enough connection remains to disseminate truthful information over larger distances.
The answer to this centralized power grab is decentralization of the people.

Big tech and the left can cover their eyes and plug their ears all they want.
The common ideas and belief systems which they so abhor will remain.
Waiting for the perfect moment is a fruitless endeavor.
Make a decision, and then make it the right one through your actions.
