Elon Musk claims advertisers are trying to ‘blackmail’ him, says ‘Go f--- yourself’
PUBLISHED WED, NOV 29 20235:26 PM ESTUPDATED THU, NOV 30 20239:36 AM EST
In recent weeks, Musk has promoted and sometimes verbally endorsed what the White House called “antisemitic and racist hate” on X, formerly Twitter, the social media platform he owns and runs as CTO.
Those posts led large advertisers, including Disney, Apple and many others, to suspend campaigns there.
At the 2023 DealBook Summit in New York on Wednesday, Musk scoffed at advertisers’ boycotts. “If somebody’s going to try to blackmail me with advertising,” he told interviewer Andrew Ross Sorkin, “Go f--- yourself.”
Roll Tide. Absolutely unbelievable.

It's an interesting concept for their workers and since it's a 125 Cafeteria Plan Fed Ex reaps some benefits as well if you understand how those plans work.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family as well.
We cut the benefit umbilical cord and he is on his own benefits now.
FedEx has amazing benefits which explains why they are non-union. Their 401K plan is administered by Vanguard and they match 200% for the first 2% then 100% for the next 4%.
There is a back story to all this which I will email you about.
That’s awesome!!! So happy for him & a lot to be THANKFUL for ~~~ for Thanksgiving, we are munching on cheeseheads !!
BRK invests puny $8 MILLION into Atlanta Braves.
"Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway (BRK-A, BRK-B) cut its exposure to a number of well-known American companies in the third quarter, exiting stakes in General Motors Co. (GM), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), and Procter & Gamble Company (PG).
But Berkshire also made a $8 million bet on another American institution: major-league baseball.
The Omaha, Neb.-based conglomerate took a new position in Atlanta Braves Holdings (BATRA), the holding company for the team that finished the recent baseball season with the league's best record. The Atlanta Braves last won the World Series in 2021."
"Buffett has a long-time affinity for baseball, frequently citing his admiration for the hitting of Boston Red Sox great Ted Williams, the last player to hit over .400 in a season (1941). At one time he owned a minority stake in the minor-league team that plays in Omaha."
Thanks. FDX recently promoted the kid to manager. Been attending classes run by them for the last couple of weeks. He has made quite the transformation from gym shorts and tees to polos and chinos. lol.
Next up he gets a shot at managing part of the hub.
I'm moving $5K a month into Fidelity for him and recently picked up some more F and TFC. The cash is going into a money market, SPAXX which is yielding 4.99%
Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels.
A belated TY ! And, a heavenly shoutout to your Dad! “Hand Salute”
Yellen must have sent Powell an email. You are costing us a ton of money.

Warren Buffett Cut Off His Granddaughter Who Spent Nearly Every Christmas and Spring Break With Him: 'I Have Not Emotionally Or Legally Adopted You As A Grandchild'
The rift became apparent after Nicole participated in Jamie Johnson's 2006 documentary, "The One Percent," which delved into the lives of America's wealthiest individuals and their families. Buffett was not happy with her participation and sent her a letter stating, "I have not emotionally or legally adopted you as a grandchild, nor have the rest of my family adopted you as a niece or a cousin."
Nicole was very close to and Bufett’s first wife, Susan, who passed away in 2004. Despite being separated since 1977, Susan maintained an active role in philanthropy and was known for her compassion. In her will, she named Nicole as one of her "adored grandchildren," leaving her a sum of $100,000. Susan's will noted that Nicole "shall have the same status and benefits ... as if they were children of my son, Peter A. Buffett."
