Rumor is the official announcement will be made during their shareholder meeting/battery day, which is in September. I'd imagine the decision will be made prior to that and city/state officials will be notified much sooner, but the public announcement will be around that time if Elon manages to not randomly tweet it.

Other news, Mazzio's offers up 7,000 + free pizzas - 1 to every employee at Tesla in Tulsa.

Interesting story from KJRH: https://www.kjrh.com/news/local-news/gov-stitt-continues-productive-talks-with-tesla

"The official told 2 Works for You the call focused on quality of life in Tulsa as opposed to specifics of Oklahoma’s site or incentive proposals.

During the call, the official said a group of entrepreneurs who moved to Tulsa through Tulsa Remote spoke about their experiences moving to the city from other parts of the country, including Austin.

Stitt concluded the meeting by sharing his personal story of starting his company in Tulsa with $1,000 and a computer and his vision of making Oklahoma a Top Ten state and raising its profile on a national level, the official said.

Officials said they believe the call was very productive and they plan to continue the conversation."

I've also heard that they have been able to collect over 2,000 resumes from engineers who have said they would move to Tulsa to work for Tesla and that's also been presented to senior Tesla officials. There's also a fair amount of internet blog press turning more favorable to Tulsa. So all in all this seems like a big win for Tulsa even if we don't get the plant. We needed something like that to open up some eyes in the site selection community to so how open Tulsa is to new development/job expansion. We've still got a lot of perception issues to battle in the quality of life arena though.

And... finally, Stitt tests positive for COVID. Which means he got it sometime around when Elon visited Tulsa. Wouldn't that be a way for Elon to remember Oklahoma if the governor gave him COVID.  Shocked

State health officials reported 1,075 new cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday, the same day Gov. Kevin Stitt announced he tested positive for COVID-19.

Karma!   Couldn't happen to a more deserving person...well, except for maybe one....

And he admits that he has been getting ongoing, regular testing.  While trying to convince others not to.   Good job, Oklahoma!  Another elected loser.

Reminds me of Sputnik.

That was my first thought also...

Close enough.



Please excuse the thread drift but...
My dad was a Ham Radio Operator.  We had recordings of the radio signals from Sputnik on reel-to-reel tape.  I have no idea where the tapes are or if the old tape recorder even still works.  I just checked, I still have the tape recorder.

Travis County and Del Valle ISD passed the incentives.  Now it’s up to Tesla to make their decision.  I think they end up choosing Austin for this plant but that Tulsa is now in a good position to get a future plant.

Trump on minorities: "These aren't my voters"

https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/502563-trump-has-privately-dismissed-protesters-saying-these-arent-my-voters


Trump gave the game away. Referring to a Democratic proposal to allow more vote-by-mail, he said, “They had things — levels of voting that, if you ever agreed to it, you’d never have a Republican elected in this country again.”

He also feels like that Klan Fan in MS.

It does however not make any determinations into land ownership. That is what a lot of people seem to be confusing (including Ted Cruz and others). This is about who has authority over law and jurisdiction issues, not land ownership. If you owned your house yesterday morning, the Creek Nation (etc.) does not now own your house today.



Maybe some are confused, but Ted Cruz is NOT one of them!   He understands perfectly what he is doing/saying, and is continuing in the tradition of obfuscation, distortion, and lies.  He is one of those who is intentionally trying to cause confusion.

Plus, I bet he is a John Wayne fan, too!

You're not missing anything.


Yeah he is.  If you don't know what the forces of evil are doing, you cannot effectively counter them.
