I know many of you feel black pilled about politics understandably, particularly federal politics, but I’m hoping that Minnesota’s tremendous progress showed what’s possible if we continue to support people at the state and local level, and move to elect younger more visionary politicians.
The issue is that Minnesota is evidence that progress is only achieved once demanding a certain purity test of elected officials and that voting blue no matter who does not work objectively as a means to change because party alignment does not correlate to progressive ideology.

You just have to look at how NYS Dems somehow lurched rightward and yet Minneosta's DLF has become the progressive standard with just a 1 person majority across their legislature.



That is why any heavy-handedness over those who are "blackpilled" is silly because everyone understand the importance of voting. The only people who don't understand the importance of voting are partisan centrist Dems in Congress purposefully ignoring the pulse of the party and thus choosing to lose.

Like yeah, every state should legislate and vote like Minnesota. To get there the DNC should probably mandate every state party is ideologically just like Minneosta.

Don't support gig workers having legal protections? Boom, not allowed to run as a Dem.
Don't support the legalization of marijuana? Boom, banned from being an elected Democrat.
Imagine the actual progress we woul see.
 
Republicans think every country wants to invade us so they bolster the military overseas without realizing the call is coming from inside the house. The biggest threat right now are the loons trying to destroy power substations and disrupting anything and everything people enjoy doing.

A lot of things piss me off, but the way the American public watched Eisenhower's farewell warning about the military-industrial complex with reasoned, steady concern... and then did nothing as what he warned about happened within record time. Whatever. Zooming out, it's pretty clear we're not going to change course before a force changes course for us.

Also, food prices are out of control. Why are frozen dinners as expensive as fast casual food at this point?? Even Trader Joe’s finally jacked their prices up.
RIGHT!?!? It's the damn frozen food that gets me off. Restaurant prices are high because of service costs, right? Then why the hell can't I get a decent frozen meal for $4, especially when you consider it's a way for them to turn the same ingredients they already have into a new cash stream.

Now I want to start discourse about frozen meals in the food thread. We might not be able to fix the country, but we can help each other avoid shitty frozen meals.
 
Sorry if this is off-topic but while we're quickly discussing grocery prices, I'd love to recommend HelloFresh, Dinnerly, and EveryPlate girls.

I sign up for one service for a week, before cancelling the auto renew. Then, I sign up for a different service the following week and repeat the process with the third meal prep service. By the time I circle back to the first prep service that I signed up for, I've received a discount coupon to the first meal prep service trying to get me to re-subscribe to the service (sometimes like 55%-75% off your first week back) and I repeat the whole cycle. Also with my husband's email, I get double the number of discount coupon codes.

It takes a little work, and you have to be on top of cancelling the auto-renew to avoid situations where you pay for two services in a week (happened to me during Thanksgiving UGHHH), but it's been helpful for reducing the grocery bills during these tough times with inflation.

On an expensive week, my husband and I have been able to pay for 5 dinners/week for ~$30 each (normally HelloFresh). Overall, in terms of prices, HelloFresh > Everyplate >>> Dinnerly.

Obviously this is trickier if you don't have someone to split the cost with (i.e. a partner/friend/roommate) but you can take the second serving for lunch the next day if that helps. Also helpful if you don't mind and/or enjoy cooking your own meals, but I'm down to try whatever if I'm looking for any means to reduce my monthly budget.

Is that $30 (each) for 5 meals? Or $30 (each) per meal? The former is how I'm trying to live nn. I also feel like I just have to start meal prepping, but maybe this is a good way to try to get into that.

$30 per person for the week (i.e 5 meals) so basically $60 total for the week (i.e the former!)

And by cycling through you’re basically constantly getting discount coupons. You do normally need to provide like your own flour, olive oil, butter, salt/pepper but otherwise you everything else is provided!

This is seriously impressive, good freaking job figuring out a way to come out ahead in this year.

I’m not in the US but iCloud’s Hide Your Email feature is useful for this too. You can just generate a new email account for a new sign up and then cancel the subscription.

If you’re on Gmail you can just create aliases for your existing account by adding “+1”, “+2” etc onto the end which technically creates a new email but redirects to your own inbox.
 
Feels like conservatives are gonna go nuclear this Pride month. Dylan Mulvaney Bud Light-level outrage on steroids for all of June. Can't wait!
