“When wealth is passed off as merit, bad luck is seen as bad character. This is how ideologues justify punishing the sick and the poor. But poverty is neither a crime nor a character flaw. Stigmatise those who let people die, not those who struggle to live.”—Sarah Kendzior, A government shutdown, a social breakdown (via deforest)

Mamie’s Million Dollar Fudge: 4 ½ cups sugar Pinch of salt 2 TBSP. butter 1 can (12 oz.) evaporated milk 12 oz. semi sweet chocolate pieces 12 oz. German Sweet Chocolate (Kraft makes a German Sweet Chocolate Baking bar) 1 pint (7 oz) marshmallow cream or fluff (same thing) 2 cups nuts (I use either pecans or walnuts) 1 tsp. vanilla extract Directions:
Heat the sugar, butter, salt, and evaporated milk over low heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Bring to a hard rolling boil and turn down the heat then simmer for 6 minutes. Put chocolate bits, German chocolate, marshmallow cream, and nuts in a bowl. Pour the boiling syrup over the ingredients. Beat until the chocolate is all melted, then pour in a pan. Let stand for a few hours before cutting. Store in a tin box in a cool place, will keep for up to 6 months…longer if frozen.
