Shame on you for selling us oil!
BTW we will no longer be buying Russian rocket engines.
I don't think anyone will be buying them. $$$$$!
Elon Musk is prepared to sell rockets, and maybe to Ukraine.
Overheard between my ears:
"Hey, Vlody?...Nice to hear ya bro! Yeah! Ruck them Fooskies, but....ummm...I can't actually sell you a whole American rocket, see......Yeah these laws you know.....So....Umm....can you just write the coordinates on a million dollar bill and send it to me?"
"For you buddy?...Of course I take PayPal..."(DING!!!)"Wow! that was quick!"
".Soo...Lessee here...west, south west 15?....Wait...."
"Vlod, I'm looking at a boat here. Is it Russian? It's not gray like the rest...."
"....his private yacht? That chrome-plated toy battlecruiser?"
"OK, but....No....I'm sure we can't carry plutonium in stainless steel. This isn't Hollywood, Vlod."
"OK...the kopeks cleared and you should hear the....ummmm....landing....in about 32:16."
LATER, In the ethernews....
"Billionaire Elon Musk was saddened today when a random ship on the Black Sea locked a laser beam on his rocket Spirit of the Patriot, causing it to veer suddenly from its course. It followed the laser and impacted the unidentified craft in an inferno of total devastation. No bodies have been recovered from a sea covered in flaming rocket fuel."
"In a Tweet, Musk expressed his sorrow for the loss of the (as yet unknown) vessel and crew, and his latest test rocket as well, adding, 'We should all be careful not to aim lasers at these vehicles, which can cause them to misfunction in unexpected ways'. Musk quickly left the interview in a Tesla, painted in stars and stripes."
I’m gambling it will go down again before I go fishing on Wednesday.
If you believe that gas prices have shot up as much as they have in the last month simply due to Russia, you haven't been paying attention.
Gas prices have ballooned since biden assumed office even before the ukranian invasion.
It's because the democrats are using it as an excuse and making it as painful as possible for the country so more people will be glad to ditch their gasoline powered cars and buy those electric ones that have a 10 year expected lifespan and which will cause your electricity bills to skyrocket and that will fail underneath its' own burden. And in large part due to their abysmal failing energy policies.
