Wow i'm guessing you would to a Stalin or Mao. You are the reason the Anti Federalist demanded a bill of rights. I'm agnostic, Because you can't prove that the guy that wrote the simulation we live in isn't God. Let me also Paraphrase and bastardize Buddha. Your hate is a gift that you are stuck with all to yourself. Your hate is different then their hate how?

See its really easy, The United States of AMERICA. The country is America and it is made up of a group of United States. Thus American's. If you have an issue with that please dig up Amerigo Vespucci. Canada is is not Canada of America, Mexico is not Mexico of America. Since the USA was intended to operate in a more states right manner. Like an EU but with a bit more power to the central government is makes total logical sense that people living in the states that make up the union are American's Kind of like The United Kingdom is a country that consists of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. In fact, the official name of the country is "United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland." So they are called British not Ukians. See how that works.

really thats the distance need for safety? Call china about what happens when there isn't safe stopping distance. I do mean SAFE. full on slam to a stop distance where your internal organs crush isn't what I am talking about. but normal breaking to accommodate station delays or just normal human trains not going BS.

What has he done? Made a car that isn't even on the list of Green cars. A solar panel company that keeps the money from the electricity you put back into to the grid. Massive environmental destruction of the mountain of argentina and Peru with lithium poisoning from the Lithium mines. The vacuum train that he came up with accept he didn't and isn't putting one penny of his on money into. He is a smart business guy and he is making cool shit. He isn't Tesla, or Bell. He might be Edisonish accept he hasn't come up with any of his companies on his own. At least edison invented some stuff himself. Elon is more a Elison. Pretty freaking smart guy by no means the smartest.

Tesla reports HUGE loss and stock took massive hit. vacuum Tube train was patented in like 1920 or somthing and Elon is so confident in it he hasn't put one penny in it. Toyota pulled out of giga Factory and its profitability is far from certain and SpaceX seems to be doing ok with Googles billion dollar investment. The Solarcity thing is almost a scam. No one lives in their house for 30 years so unless you take the out right payment option you are pretty much a sucker who will be selling their home while still paying for those panels which don't go with you oh and the extra you kick back to the grid belong to Solarcity not you. (even if it is very unlikely you will kick anything back to the grid) AWESOME.
