No doubt it's what makes him an expert in navigating the rough waters of politics. {nm}

Posted by: Dave3626 (a.k.a del_VUA_Dave3626) on May 03, 13:02 in response to DTXbro's post Sounds like he is right on both counts. Outstanding!

why is NFURY not made into movie? would be great character walking around Disneyland? maybe racism to blame? {nm}   DASavage on May 03, 10:55

Racism is always to blame. That's what Chris Matthews has taught me. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 10:57

captain america, ironman, thor, hulk (pre-Hulk), black widow, the fem bow shooter guy, all white..............????? {nm}   HSXisEASY on May 03, 11:00

It's an insidious plot against diversity. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 11:06

Why stretch for a complicated explanation when everday racism is available?    DTXbro on May 03, 11:41

I appreciate your optimism. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 12:07

I am still shocked at all the "racism" names being thrown around, when an all black movie has been number 1 for a few weeks.   arf on May 03, 12:51

It has been? I didn't know, because like Colbert, I don't see race. Everyone looks like a neutral gray to me. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 12:58

I see culture, and being a "culturist" can be a life saver if you are aware of your surroundings, bad parts of town have white ppl too. {nm}   arf on May 03, 13:04

Well of course. I've seen enough episodes of Cops to know that. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 13:16

How is that film doing in Idaho, Montana, Maine, Wyoming, etc.? How much of the audience is white (other than a few drawn to the religion?)    DTXbro on May 03, 13:18

It's still in multiple theatres, so I'd guess it's doing pretty good in White Bread country. Not bad for us racist rednecks. {nm}   arf on May 03, 13:54

No, only Samuel L Jackson worked, the rest didn't show up. {nm}   arf on May 03, 12:45

The name Black Widow is racist {nm}   forlorne on May 03, 11:08

Post-Racial Widow would be more PC. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 11:12

Hulk is green... :) {nm}   slappydavid on May 03, 11:08

But Bruce Banner is white {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 11:10

So if Nick Fury was green, it would get made? {nm}   forlorne on May 03, 11:11

How dark would his green be? Would it be a Spring Green, or more of a Sap Green? {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 11:15

Sap Green? What is that? Are you a paint chip namer? {nm}   forlorne on May 03, 11:19

No, but while I eat breakfast on Friday mornings I tune in to Bob Ross. He relaxes me with his happy trees. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 11:21

Dave, I hate to be the one to tell you, but Bob is dead. {nm}   arf on May 03, 12:52

But his re-reuns are alive and well. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 12:55

Speaking of re-runs, one of those channels is re-running Facts of Life. I still have a crush on Blair after all these years. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 12:59

And Stephanie from Newhart. Something about rich, uptight blondes going on in my head. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 13:01

Blair is hot, but I'd prefer re-runs of Saved by the Bell, what's the name of that one that's a big hit now? Cute Brunette. {nm}   arf on May 03, 13:06

Sorry, was never big into Saved by the Bell. When Saturday morning cartoons ended at 11, I tuned out. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 13:36

Al Sharpton, wher are you when NFURY needs you. you sellout! {nm}   neverODDorEVEN on May 03, 11:15

He's on MSNBC doing promos about Republicans eating blueberry pie (I'm dead serious about that) {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 11:16

Is he for or agin' eating blueberry pie? {nm}   forlorne on May 03, 11:23

I think he's pro-pie eating, but against lying about eating the pie. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 12:04

Sounds like he is right on both counts. Outstanding!    DTXbro on May 03, 12:52

No doubt it's what makes him an expert in navigating the rough waters of politics. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 13:02

would it confuse you if I mentioned that the Hulk most recently on the Avengers team (in comics) is red?   RazorHawk on May 03, 11:18

I think I just had a little stroke. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 11:20

My head explode {nm}   forlorne on May 03, 11:21

Ha Ha. I didn't see Dave's post before posting mine {nm}   forlorne on May 03, 11:22

All the movie characters with eye patches are caucasian. It IS a racist Hollywood conspiracy! {nm}   forlorne on May 03, 11:11

That's reverse racism, making it look like only white people can lose an eye. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 11:13

Also anti-pirate and anti-Nazi. {nm}   forlorne on May 03, 11:15

Well I should hope we're all ANTI-Nazi. Pirates are cool, though. Johnny Depp has tauught us that. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 11:19

My all-time favorite eye-patch character: Captain Ron {nm}   forlorne on May 03, 11:16

Captain Ron was a troublemaking vagabond type, wasn't he? We don't want kids who look like Kurt growing up thinking that's all they can be. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 11:18

Kids who look like Kurt are pre-destined to be humorous vagabonds. {nm}   forlorne on May 03, 11:24

And they hook up with actresses who look like Goldie Hawn. They've got it made. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 12:05

Wasn't there an asian with an eye patch in one of the Pirates of the Carribean movies? {nm}   arf on May 03, 12:55

Asian is in Cauc*asian*. So the reverse racism still stands. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 13:00

Asian is actually mongloid, there's only 3 "base races". White people from here to Iran and Russia are one, Africa is one, and mognloids.   arf on May 03, 13:10

No matter what we're all God's children. Except for the atheists *insert rimshot here* {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 13:20

AFJ would appreciate that one. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 13:21

Unless the atheists are right - does that make us all orphans {nm}   JDolphin on May 03, 13:31

Not necessarily. One could still look to Mother Nature. Orphanhood averted. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 13:38

Because those definitions of races are over 400 years old and useless in terms of describing human genetic variation {nm}   RogerMore on May 03, 13:54

I blame Eddied Murphy and Pluto Nash {nm}   dioneta on May 03, 11:16

+Shaq in Steel... {nm}   Oleg Max on May 03, 11:18

Didn't they already do a Nick Fury movie with Hasselhoff as Fury? {nm}   Paul2k on May 03, 11:18

I blame the drinking for his fury. {nm}   Dave3626 on May 03, 11:22

When i look under images, Hasselhoff's patch apparently wandered from eye to eye. {nm}   forlorne on May 03, 11:29

Yes, stop reminding me of Hasselfury   medv4380 on May 03, 15:08

They made Blade before any of the Avengers. {nm}   Shrike on May 03, 11:43

And then "Hollywood" made up tax evasion charges and forced him out of the country...... {nm}   dioneta on May 03, 11:53

no, he didn't pay his income taxes for six years, so he was sentenced to three years in jail... he has two years remaining {nm}   RazorHawk on May 03, 12:18
