Tusky 2.0 on a tablet. It's nice that the column isn't smeared across the entire screen, but would rather have multi-column instead.
"a11y" i read "ally". i18n and l10n were mistakes as well. in crypticness to represent an idea that's barely better than random bytes
Also, Dayjob is kind of boggled that Europeans *really* prefer A4 over Letter.
Letter is a standard! Why wouldn't they want that?
I believe I've found my pettiest-hill-to-die-on
As identifiers these are objectively terrible. They're only good if you're tired of typing the full words out.
Even with such a court the other two branches of government can do a lot:
An expanded/renewed Voting Rights Act.
Explicit updates to Title IX.
Improved defenses in ADA.
Removal of federal funding to 'pregnancy' clinics that don't mention abortion as an option.
While the liberal wing has lost the court for a generation, the other branches are responsive to public opinion.
A US SCOTUS moving to expansive views on religious exemption and free speech will make a lot of things harder. It will not find new meaning in older legislation. These views will make it much easier to codify legal discrimination affecting disliked minorities.
It will also greatly remove the 'one person, one voice' idea in favor of 'one dollar, one voice', and corporate personhood.
It will enable further weakening of the ADA w/o defensive legislation.
'defensive legislation', remember that.

That's pretty light weight, but it's all I got right now. McConnel will romp the new guy through with glee, and we'll have lost the one arm of government that hasn't been captured by the authoritarians.
We're in extra-hard mode now, kids.
It took crushing on my first guy to notice the difference. When crushing on a girl, there was a faint coda of, "I'll never look that good," that wasn't there with the guys.
That inspired some questions in addition to the "how not-straight am I" set.
WTF Germany. That goal saved your ass. May it light the fire you need, and bury S. Korea on Wednesday.
Book 3 means adding a few nodes to the family trees. It's nice if the babies have names.
I know this is a defensive measure, but I'm getting tired of being hungry.

So, they're stopping family separation by Executive Order. Not good enough, we need to make it illegal.
I had a sense of unease watching the Obama error stuff come down about the vast powers afforded to gov agencies, "but only in an emergency." Trump is the kind of President who sees *all* that is possible and will *use* all that is possible without qualm. It's time to constrain the Executive.

This /might/ be what we need to get wide-spread protests going again. This is a high risk phase of the anti-authoritarian fight. If the Republicans in congress stay on-side, the risk here is that protest movements will be labeled terrorists. This opens up the repression playbook in nasty ways.
Saw a quote today from someone in Spain. "Trump is your Franco, you should be protesting every day."
