Hold the presses!!!! Show me the exact tweet or comment that Elon Musk said that was "racist," as you claim Scott! Here we have Scott just throwing around the red meat pejorative term "racist," to simply rally the progressives into hating Elon Musk. I mean, how much more proof do you need that Scott is biased and simply doesn't like Elon for multiple reasons and will label Elon a racist just to throw doubt on him???

I guess the companies I have worked at are not the same you have seen. the CEOs got to the top making enemies of those below and kissing the but of those above.

lobe your podcasts, and this is a great episode. central banks have to be seen to be proactive, and in the case of BoE I guess had to intervene in pensions, but in general they're way too heavy handed and now an additional cause of a deeper recession.

In this episode, Scott continues to be butt hurt and seeks revenge on Elon Musk because Musk savagely burned Scott on Twitter. Scott's inability to realize the world's richest man mic dropped on him and his paltry attempts to insult Musk will always be framed as Scott's unending insecurities and childish behavior. Scott if you ever read this, please renounce your US citizenship while you're living in the UK.

Bremer is the biggest liar! He is bought and paid for by the Chinese! Just to his reasoning, "can't let his analysis feel constrained" vs what it should be "CCP bad." 🙄

In this episode, Scott, who still is vexed with toxic resentment at being schooled by Elon Musk over 8 months ago, finds out he's been blocked by Musk and seeks to voice his anger by giving us his views of Musk vs Twitter. Spoiler: Scott's on Twitter's side.

Everything was going well, right up until the part where he said, "it's up to government to regulate free speech." Thank you Scott, you have identified an enemy of America.

How can it be that this discussion of values with Ryan cannot touch on six years with American Apparel (as head of marketing!) which were coterminous with Dov Charney?

What about the coming ice-free Arctic and the failure of agriculture? What about the BILLIONS of deaths by starvation and societal collapse that will result?

Scott mentions ISIS in 15 states, but fails to realize his politics from his party created this! 200k Dyrian refugees let in by the Obama administration. If only 1% are terrorists, that's 2000 terrorists! On top of that, his political party won't protect America by hiring more Border Patrol Agents or by completing the wall! Shame on you Scott!

Let me save you some time: Galloway interviews a socialist and agrees, the end. 🙄

This particular episode Scott goes full Liberal Progressive and continues to show how biased he is with his politics. He actually recommends vaccine passports. Only 3-5% of Americans travel internationally, so why would he want that?🤔 Start thinking people, Scott isn't the answer, he's part of the problem.
