If this happens, I'll consider Mr. Coates my personal albatross!  He's already made one of my favorite characters damn near unreadable...now he's going to move on to my other favorite Marvel Characters in Captain America.  Why does he mock me!!??!?!?  Damnit!

It can all be summarize, explained and distilled into this one quote from LBJ...

“I’ll tell you what’s at the bottom of it.  If you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll empty his pockets for you.”

Tell me that's not the God's honest truth still now in 2017.  It's the epitome of divide and conquer politics.  As long as the "mud colored folks" aren't getting anything, they're OK with the policies that cut their noses off to spite their faces.  White people were always the top of the food chain, given opportunities and jobs, the GI Bill...that all gave them the opportunity to build wealth and increase the gap over the decades.  Now, those same people and the generations that came after them find that the generational jobs they had on lockdown for  decades are in dead or dying industries.  Now they have to compete...have to earn their place in the world and they've gotten "angry" and in turn have given us the Cheeto-in-Chief.

It would be great if NRA members with a heart would bring up their lack of support of Castile in their national meetings.

Yes, it would be nice, but it's not going to happen.  Or rather, I'd be very surprised if it happened.  Where are the Black members of the NRA?  They've swallowed their tongues, too.

Hey, man...we're both in and around the A.  Honestly...If you need anything, don't hesitate to ask.  I'll help if I can!!  Now...what did I miss?  I have some catching up to do!  lol

In my opinion, Coates is destroying T'Challa before our eyes.  I don't know if he's trying to tear him down to build him up, but I've read the solicitations for the next three issues and he's starting to piss me off.  The Wakandan deities forsaking Wakanda?  A new Wakandan deity trying to take over?  Nah, son...I want strong, one step ahead, take no sh*t, T'Challa back.  I was Bast back.  I want either Hudlin or Priest back!  I'm tired of this sh*t.

Damn, man!  Sorry to hear about your wife.  I hope she gets well soon!  We don't need you in Boston, you're in ATL, the new Hollywood! 

Refurbished is the way to go.  I bought a refurbished 360 many years ago and it's still kicking.  I went with the PS4, but I'm going to get an Xbox One after the summer when the girls are done with their activities. 

I missed being here, man...but I'm back! LOL

wow.. I wish I had the chips.. and the patience.. and ultimately, my own place.. to even begin to think about possibly trying to do something like that.

Kudos, Catch, Mastrmynd!! :-)

Let me know if there's any way to recreate the old Intellivision system!

This setup will do Intellivision and Colecovision and a host of other emulation.  The beauty of it is...you don't have to put it in a cabinet, you can just plug it up to a TV or monitor like a regular game system.  You can even use PS3 wireless controllers with it.  It's totally versatile.

I can't stand Nick Spencer!  I'd rather have Al Ewing write a BP book...he did a good job on Mighty Avengers and Ultimates.

*sigh* Just when I thought I was out...they pull me back in.  I'll have to check it out.

You're never out. You just take breaks.

True that...I'm waiting to see what happens with this Marvel Legacy stuff.

My girls wanted one of those Nintendo Classic last Christmas and I saw the price, I was like...forget that!  The RPi cost $35. This entire build cost me less than $150 because I had most of the stuff on hand I needed to build it.  The only thing I would do differently is that I would buy the joysticks from a US-based retailer.  I got these from a company in China and it took almost a month to get here.

You know it's a damn shame when we're siting Dennis Rodman as the standard of visiting a hostile foreign country.

Otto Warmbier, a young white guy who got caught stealing a sacred Korean banner from the halls of a hotel in North Korea. He wasn't sentenced over  'allegedly' stealing considering the surveillance camera inside the hallways caught his every move.
Warmbier was arrested, convicted & sentenced to 15 years, hard labor in North Korea's criminal justice system.
"Please!!!" He cried practically admitting guilt,
"I made the biggest mistake of my life!"

Let's compare & contrast that incident with another right here in the good ol' USA:
Philando Castile, a young Black guy who was pulled over by a law enforcement officer  for a broken tail light. The law enforcement officer suddenly became 'judge, jury & executioner' after being informed by the driver that he possessed a legal firearm. The entire incident captured on the passengers' phone cam and the squad car's dash cam. The officer was later acquitted of manslaughter charges by the US criminal justice system by jury.

What criminal justice system was handled more fairly? US or N Korea?

Who is the real criminal within the 2 nations? Warmbier, Castile or the nazi in the police uniform?

Why is the acting US president telegraphing threats against North Korea in defense of an American criminal?

...and senator rubio. A "stupid banner"?

Really...?

A sophomore senator shouldn't make sophomoric remarks that are disrespectful to another nations' sovereignty, then again, that's why you immigrated here to the United States from Cuba, yes?
Speaking of diplomatic amateurs, during the 2016 presidential campaign run, I seem to recall a certain Clueless Executive w/nothing to Offer (CEO) nonchalantly commenting on a news interview strongly in favor of torture. When

Mr. Warmbier returned to the States with  regards from Kim Jon Un's regime, their nation is merely honoring puppetine's sentiments, one dictator to another wannabe dictator.


I agree with everything you wrote, but...um...Otto Warmbier was white.  His special White Privilege Powers should have protected him.  What's that you say?  He was in a hostile, non-diplomatic Foreign country?  Sorry...if I don't laugh, I'll cry.  And you know all the major news networks are going to broadcast his funeral like it's a national tragedy.

They should just bring Monica Lynne back as T'Challa's love interest and the let the Storm thing die.  He spent more time with Monica in the comics than he ever has with Storm.
