gwarrior1997 asked: Hey I just wanna say your awesome and I love your blog. And while I hate child molesters as much as the next person I don't think the government should have the right to execute anyone. Many people executed have been proven innocent because of DNA evidence, and it's actually more expensive because of the multiple trials and appeals it ends up costing the state millions more then a life in prison sentence. Those are my reasons, although I'm a big fan and I respect your opinion
Thanks for following me! :D That being said, i agree that it does cost a lot of money to house death row inmates from the moment they are incarcerated to the moment they are put to death. This is why I don’t think death row should be a 10 or 20 year sentence. I think it should be 5 years to get yo shit together, get yo goddamn lawyers on it because honestly (I work at a law school so I know lawyers and law students) the lawyers are taking their sweet ass time.
Now I’m really, really not a fan of Eddie Izzard. I don’t find him funny and am not amused by the way he talks and struts around the stage. But this one, singular joke, is just perfect for this blog.
"Just sail around the world and stick a flag in.
[Imitating the English]: I claim India for Britain.
[Imitating Indians]: You can’t claim us, we live here. 500 million of us.
[English]: Well do you have a flag?
[Indians]: We don’t need a bloody flag, It’s our country you bastards.
[English]: No flag, no country! You can’t have one. That’s the rules that I’ve just made up. And I’m backing it up with this gun that was lent from… the… National Rifle Association.”
Respectability politics are so trash. Black men/Latinos in hoodies and baggy pants don’t deserve to be shot or mistreated just like women in short skirts don’t deserve to be raped. Any idiot with two brain cells to rub together would know that Martin Luther King was murdered in a suit and women in the 1800’s that were wearing long, complicated, thick ass dresses were still sexually assaulted. Stop that nonsense.
