Karen#1 brought up something in this thread viewtopic.php?p=415762#p415762
which originally came from Marc Headley's story of senior scientology cult executive who was told by Miscavige get rid of a new car he'd just bought because it was a German one (re-told stories vary as to whether it was a BMW or a Mercedes, but it was German). http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Marc_Head ... om_the_USA
Miscavige hated Germany because they fought and exposed scientology.
Hypocritically however, he didn't seem to mind when Tom Cruise had a Mercedes delivered to Gold Base on a flat bed truck for the birthday of his then wife, Nicole Kidman. http://www.xenu-directory.net/accounts/ ... rgood.html
So it is kinda funny to see a Mercedes sports, from a supposedly suppressive country who are apparently in cahoots with the eeebil psychs and big pharmazooomg, now being used in this video, along with "IAS" on the license plate, presumably as a symbol of success in scientology.
This is extra funny when you consider that the higher up you go inside scientology it is more likely, for most, that your car gets older and crappier until you can't afford to run one. I bet scientology OSA top knob at Flag, Peter Mansell, wishes he could trade-in that beat up old brown Honda of his for shiny new silver Merc like the one in the video. In a smooth quiet Merc, the local protesters would definitely not hear him coming when he tries to mow them down like he did a couple of years ago.
Anyway, I digress. The real burning issue of the day is: Why are they driving a Merc down the corridor of a building? The Happiness Patrol? New Era Regganetics?
You don't really have to answer.
