My ColorBlindness

Protans are people with protanomaly, a type of red-green color blindness in which the red cones do not detect enough red and are too sensitive to greens, yellows, and oranges.

As a result, greens, yellows, oranges, reds, and browns may appear similar, especially in low light. It can also be difficult to tell the difference between blues and purples, or pinks and grays. Red and black might be hard to tell apart, especially when red text is against a black background.

Progressive Web Apps FTW

https://www.smashingmagazine.com/2019/03/can-you-make-more-money-with-mobile-app-or-a-pwa/

PWAs are the shit, especially when it comes to cost savings and ease/speed of development. Depending on your app, it might not make sense ROI wise to even build a native app.

2 years in waiting, and sadly disappointed

  • Sharice Davids in Kansas became the first Native American women to be elected to Congress.
  • Rashida Tlaib in Michigan and Ilhan Omar in Minnesota became the first Muslim women elected to Congress.
  • In Florida, voters passed Amendment 4, which will restore the voting rights of people who were convicted of felonies (a shocking 1.4 million people).
  • The votes are still being counted, but last night more than 100 women were elected to Congress—and more than 100 LGBTQ candidates won federal, state, and local races

In so many ways, this was such a positive push for our country, but it’s still so disappointing.

So many people supported the Republican party, which has become the party of Trump. Even those who spoke so critically of Trump now fully support and vote in alignment with Trump. And for Republicans to come to fully support what Trump is, and then for so much of our country to continue to support that – that is what makes this still feel like a loss

President Trump is a sexual abuser. He has normalized lying. He is lying on average 10 times a day! That is absurd.

You may say “My local Republican elected officials don’t support Trump!” Well, unless they are speaking out against Trump, then they are part of the problem. Anyone who normalizes what our country is right now is part of the problem. And by continuing to support a party that no longer listens to it’s own constituents anymore, and blindly follows a leader who the rest of the world sees as a clown, you are hurting this country.
