I guess I take issue with the assumption that Republican economic policies are distinct from (and less harmful than) their social policies. Screwing the poor, over and over, is a social issue. Demonizing labor unions is a social issue. Making life easier for rich people at the expense of the poor (who, not coincidentally, are less white and more female than other economic groups) and the working class is morally wrong, and, I think, not that different from opposing gay and women's rights and hating immigrants. Obviously, not all rich people support these policies. But these young Republicans? Fuck 'em.
First "The Sweater" on The Hairpin yesterday and now this. So many strange things going on in the world.
You could have bought a decent coffee machine for that much! Also unless you bring your own cups, THINK OF THE GARBAGE. I am not a coffee drinker though. I drink tea, and I bring it on the bus if I don't have time to drink it at home. Mostly because my commute is an hour, but also because I am can get way better tea than what most places serve.
I wish I could respond with a screenshot of my email, because I tag everything as well. And I also have a "Finances" category, except that it's green, because ya know, money. $10/week on average isn't so bad I suppose? I still try to make my coffee at home every day. I budget myself about $20 a month for external coffee, but I think I usually go over that (but just a little). So maybe I need to readjust.
Dude, it takes a little more time (soaking overnight and 1-2 hours cooking in the morning) but fresh beans are sooo much better than canned. I use pinto beans and the magic ingredient, -->salt pork<--. Soak the beans, rinse them, cover them with about 4 inches of water, add maybe 50g of salt pork and simmer until they are soft. You can add garlic and/or chopped onions when they are almost done, and also ground cumin, salt/soy sauce, a teeny bit of cider vinegar, and/or fresh cilantro if you don't hate it, at the end. They'd probably b e great over cilantro lime rice which I will make this weekend, thank you for the excellent idea.
