I thought of a slogan for Scientology that might be new. Feel free to use this or not.


Scientology is to die for . . . literally.

The person from Scientology comes up to you (and when I worked for that organization I did it, too) and opens up a conversation
that they steer around to asking, "What's ruining your life?" Small or large there's always something that can be found that could
use fixing. "Scientology will handle that." So you decide to try it out. I mean it couldn't hurt. It's not a big deal. It's not too
expensive. You can always leave if it doesn't work. Right?

Next thing you find yourself in a hypnotic euphoric suggestible trance state, thinking, "This . . . is . . . IT!"

A year later, five years later, thirty years later you get away. Very likely you have nothing. By nothing I mean, you have the clothes
on your back, maybe a few possessions, and five, ten, twenty, maybe as much as a hundred dollars, and that's it. You have no
education from the time you started because you dropped out. You have a lousy resume, so no resume. You have severed connections
with former friends and family. You have no place to live and no place to go.

Somehow you manage to get some help, get a job, get back on your feet. It's amazing how many people do that.

Then at some point in time you face the fact that you've been scammed and you ask yourself, "What the **** happened?"
Everyone who leaves asks that question. It doesn't matter what language, the F-word is always part of it. Without it the
question doesn't express the rage, the pain, the exasperation, the bewilderment.

So you start to do things. Maybe contact some other former members. Do some research. Do some reading. Maybe get some
counseling. So now you are on the road to recovering from having been in the cult. And what do you know, that thing that
got you in, that thing that was "ruining your life." It's still there.

This is a link to an episode of

Last Week Tonight

about

Televangelists.

Yes there is relevance to Scientology.

Watch it.

Utterly, absolutely a hoot.

Saturday Night Live should be paying attention
Their "Int events" and Nuremberg rallies are the laughing stock of the Internet

Karen, I think your link is broken...

Also, Wieber, very funny.

Yeah, I see that this is a video clip posted years ago, which means I'm probably the only one who had not seen it before.... but still, I must say that I love it.

The Scientology organization should pay attention to this and connect the dots.

"Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake."
Napoleon Bonaparte

Sometimes the best thing to do about something is nothing.

There are some events transpiring with Scientology where the attack the Scientology organization is making will have results more deleterious
to Scientology than if the organization had done nothing. I'm not going into the specifics because I don't work for Scientology and the
organization can figure it out for itself.

As I think about this and chuckle it occurs to me that all of Hubbard's policy combined with the one called Keeping Scientology Working are
in effect imposing a held down seven on the Scientology organization. And while they're at it, they are also holding down the three, six, eight
and nine. I think it's ironic and funny that Hubbard's organization executive course (OEC), effectively gives Scientology a reactive mind as
described by Hubbard in Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health.

Oh, one more thing.

TICK TOCK TICK TOCK!

Brief definition of a cult.

A cult is a group of people who work very hard while only one person benefits.

Scientology is a cult.

Every once in a while this on line comic strip mentions Scientology.

Bella and new husband photo

Post by Don Carlo » Tue Nov 03, 2015 5:04 am

Bella Cruise looked happy and hip with her new husband Max Parker in several photos in The Daily Mail (UK).
I'm glad she is out of the clutches of her controlling father Tom Cruise, and I hope she googles "David Miscavige" on her cell phone.

This was posted on Tony Ortega's Underground Bunker. I am bringing it here with its caption.
