The Middle Class Illusion: What Really Cost Clinton This Election


See, there aren't a lot of folks left in "smug white middle class" anymore. Yes, that used to be a large group of people. You smug, white, middle class people that were so sure Clinton would win because all your neighbors in your lily white neighborhoods were saying "do the clinton thing" because it was the "cool thing to do" like "buying Apple products". 

"I mean, ALL the celebrities are doing it! And I like to pretend I'm like a celebrity on twitter!"

So the folks not over not being popular in high school, that do what celebrities tell them to do fell for her song hook line and sinker. I mean come on. George Clooney man. LEO. COME ON. If big stars are telling me to do it, I must. They might marry me someday.

But back to smug white middle class. The newbies to this evaporating segment of society are the people that could afford college (20 percent of us barely) and managed to finish a useless 4 year degree (a quarter of those) that actually makes some money somehow. Then they become part of the 10 percent of us that are really in the middle class now. Yeah.

If we stilll HAD a large smug white middle class, roiling in the depths of the Dunning-Kruger effect, imagining themselves smarter than anyone else because they barely got a 4 year degree, and bought a macbook pro, then yeah. Clinton would have won on pure smugness. Alas....

The middle class has been fucking destroyed in this country. Granted, that happened a decade ago. Just, it was really easy to shame the folks leaving the middle class into pretending for a while. Pretending they were not living paycheck to paycheck. Taking out that second mortgage to keep up with the neighbors. Yeah. That shit didn't last too long. People woke the fuck up. 

The very richest have fucked our country so bad at this point, taking and taking and taking, pushing us harder and harder, that the smug middle class white vote is nothing now. You have these remaining gated communities simply FULL of smug white people that feel they can tell you how to live, and feel they have the right to dictate your future. Because they know better than you because they barely got a liberal arts degree. 

So YOU PEOPLE. You folks, many of you friends of mine, that (typically) because you came from a stable middle class household with a solid family structure, somehow managed to stay middle class. You folks that don't realize you are NOT anything CLOSE to a majority of us anymore, you were really shocked when Hillary Clinton lost. Because she was singing your song. And you thought you were all of us. Not just a lucky few. 



WELCOME TO ACTUAL REALITY!


Love you guys,

We Protect Cops (or) This White Cop Will Walk

Video   <_  YOU WATCH THIS. I can't make that anymore clear. She deserves that you watch this. Please.


That's a woman. No, I'm sorry. That's a WOMAN. A smart, beautiful, wonderful Woman that did nothing but good her entire life. One of the best of us. Now, I'm going to be completely fucking honest about something. I get angry when someone gets killed because a cop has a child's ego. But I get even more angry when that someone is one of the best of us. Yes, I'm biased. I give more of a shit about the people that care about and love all of us like Sandra Bland did. And that's why I'm tearing up as I type this.

But we protect white cops. Now, I've seen them royally butfuck a black cop. But RARELY a white cop. They always walk. It's like there's some unwritten, get out of genocide free card option for any white cop. OH, unless it's a Female. Capital F on purpose. Let's keep this pandering predictable. I want the nuts that are going to feed me death threats this week to have good ammo. Don't be a female cop that fucks up. They'll railroad you instantly. We saw that happen in PA. The blue shield only extends for white male cops. You'll notice that.

Either way,

Vegas odds? I'll give you 30/1 that this guy walks. And that's being pessimistic rather than generous. To fit the narrative I'm virtually shoving down your throat with a baseball bat sized presentation.

The Kanger Nebox: A Fiddly Yet Awesome Hunk Of Shit


Some of us love Alfa Romeos. I mean, because we have souls. It's hard not to love something beautiful yet flawed. Hell, it got me married three times. It's sometimes wonderful having something imperfect when you yourself are not.

So you buy the car because it makes your heart sing, even though you keep half a garage worth of tools in the trunk so you can fix it roadside. Because that will happen. So you enter into the relationship with the person even though you might be pulling kitchen utensils out of your arm once in a while. Because when she smiles, you forget your name.

The Nebox is like that. Within the first 24 hours I figured out:

1) The temperature control is fucked. Does not work. I figured this out when it burned my Ni coil so bad I had to throw it out.

2) It leaks like the Titanic after an iceberg fuck. If you use the power of Hercules to screw down the juice chamber cap, and if you don't use their shitty Ni coils (which suck anyway because it doesn't actually do temperature control right) you'll be fine.

3) I cross-threaded the battery cap THREE TIMES because the threads are incredibly shitty on it. I had to fix the threads carefully with a file.



4) Most of this nonsense could have been avoided if the airflow did not come through the bottom of the device through the liquid fill cap. Just an incredibly dumb design decision.


However.....  when you learn the "magic dance".

1) Use at least 50/50 VG/PG liquid or it will leak.

2) Use the .5 Ohm coil and give up on temperature control.

3) Fill the 10ml chamber with only 7ml

It won't leak, it will work great, and it will deliver the most amazing hits you can buy unless you are an expert and make your own device.

IF you have the patience to deal with fiddly bullshit, this is the best deal on a vaping device in the world. Because of how negatively it has been received, you can pick one of these up startlingly cheap.

So there you go. If you have patience and will do a little work for a superior experience, you can handle this device. If you hate having to think, and just buy Apple products, move along. This is not for you.


Love You,
