“Make America Great Again” the Low Outputs Say.

It’s Hard to Make America More Great When Trump Supporters Don’t Do Shit

Brookings Institute finds Trump supporters are the lowest output workers, BY FAR, in the country.  And don’t ask about their IQ’s.

The Brookings Institute found Trump Supporters are the GDP dregs.

“The less-than-500 counties that Hillary Clinton carried nationwide encompassed a massive 64 percent of America’s economic activity as measured by total output in 2015.  By contrast, the more-than-2,600 counties that Donald Trump won generated just 36 percent of the country’s output—just a little more than one-third of the nation’s economic activity.”

I realized a few months before the election that Trump would win.  It hit me while I was arguing that Trump would never win, and my reasoning was that Americans could never be so stupid as to vote for this clown.  That was my “OH SHIT” moment, I knew we were fucked right then.

WIDESPREAD DEFECTS, AVOID IPV 5 Vaporizer by Pioneer4you

ipv5-vaporizer-check-battery-error-defectINTRO
This is a review of the IPV 5 vaporizer mod by Pioneer4you (Chinese company). This would be a great product if it weren’t for a known defect that the company is basically ignoring unless (from what I have heard) you keep pushing them, at which point you’ll just get a replacement which is going to have the same problem.  This defect affects the series, not just one model, according to the forums you can check by searching Google with queries like this one. Avoid all IPV series by Pioneer

THE “CHECK BATTERY” IPV MALFUNCTION ERROR

I’m not going into details about the malfunction, as you can find the real vape nerds discussing this in many forums, but basically a “CHECK BATTERY” message will come on and the device will not hit.  This will happen when batteries are charged.  You can even have the device plugged into an outlet and it happens.

HIGH RISK of MISSING RETURN POLICY WINDOW

WHY? IPV 5 is Complicated, Must STUDY Owner Manual

Dispute Purchase with Credit Card Company if Possible, Don’t Give eBay, Paypal Total Control

EBAY SELLER POWERPUH IS IGNORING REQUESTS FOR RETURN

It took me two weeks to be able to fire the device up because of the huge learning curve to operate the menu.  This is another problem with this device…it is NOT SIMPLE.  You MUST not just read, but actually STUDY the owners manual to use it.  By the time I was using it, the 30 days for return policy was expiring.  I got the CHECK BATTERY message on day two … after that it was ever few hours.  I have sets of charged batteries that are good.  Too many people have this problem for it to be your fault.  Anyway, so this POWERPUH

TAKE-AWAY ADVICE: BUY REPUTABLE OR ASK ABOUT REFUND (not return for replacement) POLICY

and don’t buy from eBay seller POWERPUH, he ignores return requests:

SAN FRANCISCO – Feb. 7, 2017 – PRLog — Frontier Tech Ventures (FTV), a venture capital firm, has attracted Craig Hordlow, previously co-founder of Red Bricks Media, to lead its marketing and communications.

“People who have worked with me know how excited I get bringing a great product to market,” Hordlow said. “And here we’ve got a young company with a truly stunning track record, topping Goldman Sachs and other analysts’ lists, but the press doesn’t appreciate how successful FTV has become.
