    I don't know about that but he certainly has my vote for Turtle of the year.

    My guesses:

    • Trump (obv choice)
    • Mueller (also possible, not sure tho)
    • Women (times does this sometimes and gives it to a group, totally conceivable they do something stupid like "the year of the women" or something completely retarded)


    I can't really think of other people that have hugely impacted the news. If you want to correctly predict, it needs to be someone that's been in the news a lot and someone the times will want to circlejerk over (either negatively or positively)
    The first two I'd say no. Time rarely honors the same person two years in a row. Mueller is sooooo 2016. So...no there too.

    Since they pissed off the left with Trump last year my guess is that Kap will win the award this year to piss off the right. Now your #3 bet is probably your best bet. I have "#me too" as my number 2 bet.

    My bets are;

    #1. Emmanuel Macron
    #2. The #Me Too movement
    #3. Kap

    He's still a fucking turtle and has the charm and charisma of one. No way is it McConnell.

    You sounded good till you ran off the rails there at the end with the Red Scare rant about commies. You just want the press to defend rightwing ideals?

    To Troll: Read my response again. Freedom of speech defends everyone’s ideals; whereas, the press only defended the Left’s ideals since the 1920s.

    The basic test of freedom is perhaps less in what we are free to do than in what we are free not to do. It is the freedom to refrain, withdraw and abstain which makes a totalitarian regime impossible. Eric Hoffer

    Time (pun intended) to remind everyone of the 1980 winner.

    In rejecting their view [Spinoza, Leibnitz and Hegel], as I shall contend that we must, we are committing ourselves to the opinion that “truth” in empirical material has a meaning different from that which it bears in logic and mathematics.”

    Bertrand Russell, “An Inquiry Into Meaning & Truth” (1940)

    It is hard to take liars seriously; even exaggeraters are at grave risk.
