Julian Assange arrested

The headlines will read,  Julian Assagne was arrested at the Ecuadorian embassy in London. But the real story is,  what was his exit strategy?  He was a wanted man that everyone knew where he was,  if he had no intention of running,  why not just turn yourself in and make a deal.   Instead he is dragged out of the embassy looking like Santa Claus on a bad day,  rambling like a wounded dog about to be put down. Did he think he would stay in the embassy forever?

TOP 5 impactful MCU movies (with explanation)

5.  The Incredible Hulk  (2008) TIK
Edward Norton hopefully is not hating himself for getting replaced by Mark Ruffalo. He was the HULK, especially when he played the alter ego Bruce Banner. The story was easy to follow and the action was non stop. You can argue that this movie, which was 2nd in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, set the tone for the continued growth of this universe. As soon as Tony Stark, played deliciously by Robert Downey Jnr (SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!)….shows up at the end credits to talk to General "Thunderbolt" Ross about his "hulk" problem, the continuity was cemented and immortalized forever. If TIK failed, we don't get the Avengers End game.

4.  Ant Man (2015) AM
This movie should not have worked, but it did. It is the "Honey I shrunk the kids" for 2015, with a sprinkle of superhero dust. Nobody else could have pulled this movie off than Paul Rudd. An actor known for being the other dude in classics like "40 year old virgin", gets to be the man and play the same exact character he plays in every movie. This is as lighthearted as possible, even the word silly comes to mind. Thanks to a great supporting role by Michael Douglas, and you get a movie that should fail, but delivers a lot of fun.

3.  Iron Man (2008) IM
When Robert Downey Jnr RDJ was cast as Tony Stark, everybody except director Jon Favreau, thought he could play the playboy , alcoholic billionaire who becomes Iron Man. After all, RDJ had become a liability due to his numerous and well documented struggles with drug addiction, that almost derailed his career. RDJ stepped up and knocked it out of the park . He was charming, enigmatic and played the role like it was his last chance at redemption. When the movie did well, it was also a victory for life and second chances.

2.  Avengers Infinity War (2018) AIW
(SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!) 
Thanos is the big villain that promises to save us, by eliminating half the population. He also says you will thank him later. By the end of the movie, fans are in tears because a fictional character just wiped out a fictional population, along with some of our favorite heroes, by merely snapping his finger. When this megalomaniac is your villain, then you know that it will require a biblical response. It is an epic with several cameos and at this point must have the record for the most superheroes in one movie.

1.  Captain America: Winter Soldier (2011) CAWS
This movie was a spy thriller that James Bond wished he could star in today. The subterfuge was so hot, you could cut it with a knife. Chris Evans is at his best as the captain from another time, out from the cold, dropped in a modern era, to fight for truth, justice and the American way...He played it the way Superman was supposed to be played..., lovably naïve but powerful enough to overcome whatever you threw at him.

Then there is that old Hollywood icon, from "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid" and "The Sting" and my mom's favorite " The way we were" and the underrated " Spy Game"...….(drum roll please) ….Robert Redford. This old man acted circles around everybody and ….

(SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!)…. he is revealed to be the villain. who has secretly been working for Hydra for decades. Powerful and scene stealing. But wait, there's more.... Captain America's best  friend, Bucky, thought for dead, has been resurrected as a super powered assassin and only Captain America can put him down or save him.

Will Gucci Mane change his name?

In case you missed it,  overrated designer Gucci introduced it's new sweater.
Give it a second to sink in..........  Gucci and several closeted racists would have you believe that this is just a fashion statement and has nothing to do with something like this.........

 A clear image of a white man in blackface portraying a black man as a clown or less than human.  Wide eyed and a caricature used as a tool to remind the next generation and continue the vicious cycle of racism.  So our question is will rapper Gucci Mane change his name in protest or will he continue to be blissfully ignorant?

Why democracy in Nigeria is a waste of time?

This list is in no particular order...…

1. The current President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari is also the Minister of Petroleum, because he is the only Nigerian that is incorruptible.... because he told or so. 

2. A person could go into a coma 20 years ago, wake up and the same candidates that the person remembered 20 years ago, will still be contending for leadership positions. i.e. Obasanjo, Buhari, Atiku

3. To live in Nigeria you need to produce your own electricity, because the government or state does not see the reason why they should provide it. But every candidate will promise they will.

4. If you are travelling to Nigeria for the first time, you better not land in Lagos past 9pm and you better have somebody pick you up at the airport. No candidate can guarantee your safety,

5. Almost all goods in Nigeria are priced in the thousands....10, 0000 , 20, 0000 etc.

6. Billionaires are many, but no accountability about how the money was made and nobody cares, as long as he is rich.

7. Other countries have female Presidents, Prime Ministers. Other countries have leaders in their 40s, filled with youthful enthusiasm and modern ideas. Nigerian candidates are old men who still think a woman's best rooms are bedroom and kitchen.

8. In a shock to no one, the Presidential election which was set for February 16th has been postponed till February 23rd......or until the desired result is achieved.
