No white wants to be labeled a racist so we flee communities and towns we grew up in, towns we built to avoid being a. Shot in the fac...

Novel idea I know but my iPhone stays dry and ac...

I thought very good though....

We've been eating them for about a year now and have 10 in my freezer right now. They are badass and yes, microwaved for 15 seconds you can't tell the difference.
And I don't have to leave my friggin' house. Thanks.

I get you.....the movie was very well done and its a very compelling story to tell. Probably a hundred ways or perspectives it could been told from and this one was mainly Maya's. I enjoyed the CIA-based angle, didn't necessairily find it slow and I appreciate what they were shooting for.

Her writing her waiting days on the window had to be false. She would have known all that was going on the entire time. But in order for the movie to fit the narrative for Maya they had to make it seem like no one was doing anything except her. I get that but rather than that I would have rather ...

I believe they wanted the topic and content to be Oscar worthy but it basically showed how enhanced interrogation worked, despite some people's b...
