    of seeing this torture-excusing piece of crap film.

    One of the reviewers said the film opens with a detainee being savagely beaten: and our dewy-eyed heroine turns to her colleague and says:

     "I'm fine with that."

    People may friggin' be "fine with that"---but I'm not---and the fact that it was done in my name---with my tax dollars--- is not a selling point from which anyone with any common decency should be realizing either accolades--or a profit.

    I don't give a shit about artistic license--- or a cinematic exploration of the psyche----or any other psycho-babble attached to it.

    Glorifying torture--and promoting the sad psycho-sexual fantasies that thrive on it------- is a sickness---and the only cure is a strong moral stance---not a contract---an award---or a hefty profit.

    There should be no profit of any sort realized through torture.

    Won't contribute---won't applaud.

    Although I did vote for President Obama---and I voted for him twice---I am not happy with his White House on this subject---either---and do not hesitate to tell him so----and I have written--called--commented and emailed on this subject.

    There is neither glory nor patriotism in torture.

    If you torture: all there should be---there---is a jail cell waiting for you.

    The Onion says----scholars have discovered---the Mayan word for "Apocalypse" in fact---translates more accurately as: "Time of pale obese gun monsters."
