These are the Dutch babies I regularly make during the family brunch I host with my wife and very close friends. It comes from my Oregonian friend, Jocelyn.

Put half a stick of butter in a cast iron. Melt it, but don't brown it. Preheat oven to 425.

Separately, mix: .75c AP flour, .75c milk, 1/8tsp salt, 3 eggs and .25 tap of vanilla

Pour into cast iron, bake for 20min, then temp to 350, bake for another 5. Crust should be golden, not brown.

Top with powdered sugar and lemon juice

Abolish holidays named after/honoring people. Replace them with holidays named after/honoring the actions they performed so as to encourage others do the same.

MLK Jr. Day? How about Fight For Racial Equality Day instead?

Labor Day? How about Fight For Workers Equality Day instead?

Christmas Day? More like Destroy The Ruling Class and Community Unity Day.

President's Day? Yeah, that one can fuck off. Honoring positions of power has no action equivalent worthy to replace it with.

liberals are so wild they'll look at the prison system and be like "wow how did we accidentally construct an elaborate private gulag system to incarcerate a huge portion of our population with no social benefits over the course of the last 50 years???? I guess if we vote for a Democrat they'll fix it, like every other Democrat did!!! Have you heard about my favorite pasty white savior politico?"

Asked on scuttlebutt, but I'll ask here too: If there was a group that gave grants of $1,000 every month to different projects, what would be some efforts that you'd nominate?

@xvw hey there. Curious what has you hopping to this server instead. Mind sharing?

Here's the thing about forsaking capitalism. It will be the death of Convenience™.
A quick anecdote, to highlight exactly what I mean. Partner and I are driving out of town on the night of Thanksgiving this year. We are low on gas, and have 100 miles to go. The first gas station was closed, a small local pump in the middle of the country. We immediately started looking up the nearest station, and planning who we'd call first if we weren't able to find one open. We had not been prepared, did not realize the inconvenience, of needing gas on Thanksgiving. I have increasingly become aware of my own incovenient shopping and life choices that make me reliant on unethical work. The expectation that I can go grocery shopping at 11:00 pm on a holiday is taugh to us by a certain brand of convenience. If our infrstructure were to fall, we will never again achieve that level of convenience, even if we were later capable, imo.
