When my engineers are low on actual tasks, I encourage them to learn. Go read up on some new technology, play around with that game engine, read some technology magazines or books, etc. That increased knowledge is incredibly useful to the company in the long run, it makes for happier employees, and they are even more marketable. Sounds counterproductive, but I prefer more marketable employees because it means not only do I have a strong team, but now the company is far more appealing to other marketable employees when I have an opening.

No, it's flamebait. It mentions no less than four additional points not relevant to this discussion simply in an attempt to troll Americans. Take out those four other points and I would agree it's a valid criticism, or perhaps include other points that ARE relevant/related.

It's pure opinion of what's a joke petition and what isn't. If you say the death star is a joke petition and there's no frivolous determination of such petitions, then either the administration can arbitrarily choose or perhaps just treat them all as jokes. I think the response to the Tesla petition is fine. The administration should do nothing on this, not because I don't care but looking at it from their perspective, it's not worth it. It's a hugely problematic, very inflammatory discussion to talk about taking away state rights in favor of federal rights. The white house should pick their battles on that and this is certainly not one of them. So, while Tesla may be less of a joke petition than the Death Star, it's still a joke petition.
