Adblocking on youtube stopped working on this laptop.  I'm sad that I have to sit through 0:47 of ads about how great a private equity firm is before I can start watching the video about how terrible P.E. firms are.

That time back in 2018 when Trump made a deal with Foxconn to open a factory in Wisconsin to make TVs & computers and shit, creating over 13 thousand jobs in the process. Unfortunately it was all a scam, it's been 6 years and they've only built a couple empty warehouses and they don't even make anything.
