But the Big Three are all restarting, and the position that Tesla is taking about the safety of operations isnít different from what they are doing.

The big difference is that Tesla is in Alameda County and the others arenít. I canít really blame Musk for being pissed.

He opened his factory there because the state and county bent over and bent over backwards for him and all was well. Now that the they've finally drawn a line in the sand about how poorly he can treat his employees as pawns to his pockets and ego, he's crying that he's being treating unfairly, claiming he knows better about the virus, its impacts, how to fight it than epidemiologists and other health/medical experts, and fuck them because we just have to open. Hmm, stop me if you've heard this one before.

Just like when you climb out of your basement and get back to your normal when the first bands of rain hit your house when a Cat 5 hurricane start to hit? And you live through that, it's why you party with your pants down in the middle of the street when you're in the eye of the storm?

Tesla is restarting production today against Alameda County rules.
I mean he doesn't have an Article 2 or anything telling him he can do whatever he wants to do no matter what the law says. I'm still having trouble putting my finger on where else we've seen this behavior before...
