Mar 17 SeattleKim commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: You Heard It Here First, Cousin.
I agree with the above commenters about other red flags. It looks like INCEST has a multitude of incompatibilities to deal with. He is emotionally far more invested in her than she is him. It is very doubtful she is going to suddenly figure out he is the love of her life. And she is poly. She wants to remain free of tighter bonds.

He needs to let this relationship go.
Mar 17 SeattleKim commented on Trump's Budget Would Cut Money for the People Who Look for Cow Shit in Your Clams.
Trump loves to sue anyone who opposes him. That is the only thing he understands. So we need to speak to him in his own language. Any toxic mess that the Feds are supposed to clean up, if that money goes away? Sue his ass.

That was entertaining. Sounds like both the LW and her X are immature and controlling. This kept them entertained for quite a while, but when he finally got bored of the game and found another player, she lost her shit. They all need therapy. The X's new squeeze's X probably does too, but at least he can see light at the end of the tunnel. His crazy X is close to being gone.

They don't even put this kind of crazy on the soaps.

@17, and that is already illegal. Arizona is trying to intimidate peaceful protests by threatening to take property EVEN BEFORE DAMAGE IS DONE. Just like the bathroom bills, they already have laws in place to handle illegal activity. They are trying to suppress protests.
Jan 16 SeattleKim commented on Washington Governor, Attorney General Propose Abolishing Death Penalty.
This legislation is long overdue. Putting people to death as punishment is wrong on so many levels. Not only is it more costly than life in prison and unequally implemented, it is irreversible. We have mistakenly put people to death before. And that doesn't even get into the question of morality. Do we really have the right to take the life of another as punishment?

I'd rather see that person be locked up for the rest of their life.
Jan 12 SeattleKim commented on BuzzFeed Is Bad For Journalism?.
@12, There is a difference between falsehood, and unverified, but supplied by credible sources. If Putin has blackmail material on Trump, it would be a good idea for the public to have a clue about it.
Jan 12 SeattleKim commented on BuzzFeed Is Bad For Journalism?.
Most of mainstream media has caved to Trump's threats, and won't call a douche a douche. Buzzfeed said it was unverified, but had verified sources. That is worth publishing the info. At least they are willing to tell us what is going on out there, while mainstream media dances at Trump's feet.
Jan 11 SeattleKim commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: A Germ-Phobe Couldn't Be Into Piss, Right?.
The saddest part of this whole thing is that his alleged behavior is completely in character. We have a president-elect who belittles, humiliates, and mocks anyone he disagrees with, and who lies with impunity, even when that lie is blatant. He is untrustworthy. His moral character is disgusting, and he is going to be sitting in the highest office of our country.

Apparently, putting forth the idea that ALL people deserve equal rights and protections was an idea too far for conservatives.
Jan 4 SeattleKim commented on We Still Get Great Comments (From Great Commenters) Here On Slog.
There is a huge difference between a moderated comment section and an open one. Even if there is only light moderation, people behave much better. There are some places I won't even open up comments because they are so horrible. But SLOG is generally a pretty good place. Not always, but usually better than most.
Nov 21, 2016 SeattleKim commented on Meanwhile On Our Nation's Television Screens: Are Jews People?.
On top of everything else, Trump will never divest from his businesses, so there is a (pardon the expression) YUUUUGE conflict of interest there. He very possibly could be impeached, which would put Pence in the White House. I honestly don't know which would be worse for democracy. We are fucked no matter how you look at it.
