classism / anti-homeless attitudes 

it's amazing how many liberals will demand that unsheltered people not exist around them, and when asked where they should go inevitably end up describing some sort of concentration camp

The Rose Festival is cancelled again 🎉

Another year free from a tourist influx. Another year without the US Navy docking ships downtown and the coast guard patrolling around the river with mounted guns.

portland pol / racism 

I disagree with Jo Ann Hardesty on policy, but tone policing a black city council woman, getting in fights with her because you don't want a more empowered citizen police review board, and refusing to work with her when you yourself are an elected official isn't just disagreement. This reeks of racism imo

* I now have a weather widget with emoji representation of weather
* Full vim-like marks to mark windows and goto to them. Also a dmenu which lists all marks and can goto the one you select
* Scratchpad status icon (0 windows in scratch, 1 window in scratch, many windows) and a dmenu list of scratchpad windows which shows the one you select

“I was really upset that homeless people did not have access to the $1,400 stimulus check.

I just found this out. If you are homeless, you can go to a tax return office where they will file something called EIP return. They will put the money on a debit card after.”
