Jan 10 Racing Turtles commented on Dylann Roof Receives the Death Penalty in Charleston Massacre.
The death penalty is wrong AND it's too easy on the goddamn criminal. In this case I would much rather the motherfucker rot in existential hell with zero possibility of hope for as long as possible. Be the first man to live to 120.

Also, studies have shown that the death penalty is more expensive to the state than life in prison. (I cannot cite sources or vouch for the accuracy of that or whether it's still current info.... I just know that I've read about it in the past.)

CHZA - thank you for saying it. 100%

@5 - Not sure why Dan didn't address that.
Nov 29, 2016 Racing Turtles commented on Tom Ford Returns with Nocturnal Animals.
Oh man, GO SEE THIS MOVIE.

It really is depressing as fuck, but it's a very compelling story, visually gorgeous, original, and I have to say, between this and Arrival, Amy Adams is just killing it right now.

Babies and zygotes are not equivalents.
Nov 15, 2016 Racing Turtles commented on EMP Is Now the Museum of Popular Culture. That's MoPOP to You..
I don't get it. Are you supposed to pronounce it "moe" + "pop"? Or "Moe" + "P-O-P"?

In any case, I wish them the best, but the EMP has never EVER lived up to its potential. And somehow I don't think this latest incarnation is going to get it across the line.
Nov 14, 2016 Racing Turtles commented on Rural and Suburban Whites Did Not Vote for Trump Because They Felt "Left Behind".
@28 - and just what are they, please. You hate your mother, grandmothers, wives, sisters, and daughters? You hate the environment and want to see everything wild burned to the ground? You believe building a wall between the US and Mexico solves any kind of actual problem? You like "businessmen" who are terrible for business? You think it's appropriate that your president's name appears in like 20-foot font on the side of hotels all over the country? You didn't think Giuliani and Gingrich had spent enough time fucking things up already? You like people who lie egregiously and constantly? You like people without any kind of qualifications to score jobs that require qualifications? You believe all Muslims should be deported? You have a boner for Mike Pence?
Nov 1, 2016 Racing Turtles commented on Tear Down I-5 in Central Seattle and Replace It With Apartments?.
Ummm.... trying to get from end one of Vancouver to the other in rush hour is absolutely fucking RIDICULOUSLY BAD. Maybe some studies have shown "their traffic is better than ours"... but that certainly doesn't make it a model we should aspire to emulate.

And who -WHO- wants to live, work, or visit businesses sandwiched directly between two interstate lines?!

This is astonishingly dumb.
Oct 25, 2016 Racing Turtles commented on Walkinshaw vs. Jayapal: 7th District Race Heats Up (Also: Why I'm Ignoring the SECB and Voting Walkinshaw).
Thank you, Another Curmudgeon, for this:

"If Pramilla loses, she goes back to being a State Senator for two more years.
If Brady loses, he is out of a gig.
I'd like to keep all my Democrats on the job and fighting for good policy.
Ergo, Vote Brady."

Whether he tells her about he cheating or not, he has no business marrying her.
