Something Can Be Done About It

“Your pretty little butt”. LMAO. I am curious how many male reg’s target cute females for this exact reason, yet under the pretext of salvaging their infinity? At least one that I know of… LMAO.
I wonder if, after he writes the KR report, she Blows as well…just wondering?? (Basically I hope she tells the whole bunch to go perform an unnatural sexual act upon all of em!!!)
RB nails it every time! I notice she is fighting back though…very unusual in the “old” days. Maybe there is a learning curve in the SO now? LOL
Dead Men Tell No Tales Bill Straass says
A learning curve? I sure hope so and that those poor dumb bastards still in the S.O. are not as fucked up as I was.
I actually felt bad because I made it out of there still alive (though 6 doctors and 1 Captain Freewinds told my wife that I was going to die.
I imagine that my recovery will be complete when the rest of the slaves are freed and those Guilty of actual Crimes are brought to Justice.
I look forward to every weekly installment of Regraded Being — just like I did when I was a kid waiting for the Sunday paper to arrive with the latest installment from the Looney Tunes folks and their cast of zany characters … Bugs Bunny, the Roadrunner et al. The difference Being is what we see in Regraded Being is real and SICK.
I wish Regraded Being came out everyday and were a lot longer. I’ve spent hundreds of hours studying and exploring this fascinating but very scary, dangerous and sick cult and this utterly scathing comic strip Regraded Being does such a great job exposing the hypocrisy, lies, brainwashing and delusions that feed this metastatic mind cancer.
I’m a lucky enough reader to understand all of the scientology (never dignify this tripe with an uppercase “s”) terminology, which adds another layer of appreciation to what Regraded Being serves up.
I’d love to see the entire Regraded Being series appear in book form. Do you think we could call on that Middle World Orc David Miscavige to fire up that warehouse full of scientology printing presses to do it? I believe it would be quite a bit more popular than Ron Blubbard’s nauseating drivel of a book “The Way to Happiness”. Plus, it would actually get read and not tossed into waste bins. ???

Another Great one, RB… I take my hat off for you and your ability to continue to expose the parasitic cult Scn has become under the the direction of The Midget… we Old Timers are disgusted with what Scn is today, under him.
These two are supposed to be married, right? 😉
Old Surfer Dude says
No. There not.
We’re in the Sea Org now
We’re feeling the stress and how
We’ll never get rich, we’re all Davy’s bitch
We’re in the Sea Org now
We’re eating Sea Org grub
And let me tell you bub
We know what it means
To scarf rice and beans
We’re in the Sea Org now
We’re getting funny stares
From SPs everywhere
The wog world sure stinks
We don’t have to think
We’re in the Sea Org now
Left wife and kids behind
They’re just a waste of time
To Ron we commit
That’s all that there is
We’re in the Sea Org now
xenu's son says
Hey RB.I thought it was just who thought you hit a HE.
Never seen these type of comments on your cartoon.(have read all of them on all your cartooons)
Looks like you have peeled another layer off the onion.
Oooooh! Yeah,yeah, yeah, yeah! Kick that girl’s ass to Ethics for being open, honest, and wanting to stand by the truth!
That’s the Scientology way!
I’m hoping that she comes to her senses and makes a run for it.
Great one, RB. More and more I’m getting convinced that the only people left in the cult nowadays are the 1) weak minded oldsters who know better but don’t have the guts and integrity to leave, and 2) the fatuous, ignorant, arrogant, cult youngsters with no education, no training, no ability to function on their own in the normal world, and worse, an attitude of utter denial that any of the above is even necessary. The first group can be dismissed with the contempt they deserve and they’ll go down with the ship; the latter group will need a lot of emotional support to come to the necessary realization that what they don’t know is not only necessary but vital and that once and for all they’re going to have to grow up and be responsible for themselves, sans cult.
John Doe says
Go Hanna! And then just keep on going…
And never ever look back. If you do, you might turn to stone.
I think more and more youngsters will be questioning the status quo/waking up, and, as in This case, probably have Someone on the outside to look to for help. My heart truly goes out to the older, long-termers who are too browbeaten and tired to even try to think for themselves, let alone buck the system; they literally have No resources, No family, No friends, and are too frightened to trust in either the System or the kindness of strangers outside of their perverted world. Truly Sad.
Upstat=money producer. You can and will get away with anything in $cientology if you throw money the direction of the problem. The only thing I see wrong with that RB strip is the fact that few, if any people who have been in SO for any length of time have the ability to think that clearly.
Bob Smith says
RB, spot on. Any SO member (or staff member) with actual personal integrity is in for a rough ride.
This is timely content in light of Taryn Rinder Teutsch’s attacks on Mr. Rinder, which are now being exposed as underhanded subterfuge. Yes, folks — Scientology really is that creepy. It can pervert otherwise decent people into attacking their own father or mother.
Moving Forward says
Totally Bob – seen this first hand where perfectly able and decent people are perverted into thinking their family are so far below them that its actually ok to treat them like crap. Its heart breaking to see how someone so close can change and then hate their family so much only because they dont want to ne part of the cult.
Marie guerin says
Give that girl or anybody else 5 weeks on the ship and she won’t even remember that her mother was not guilty of wrongdoing , she will be ready to destroy anything resembling an enemy .
The lack of information added to the skillful “deadagenting” added to the overt tech and PTS BS will do it.
It is maddening and horrible , the mental pain inflicted to the target as well as the threatening of livelihood and other pressures are beyond words.
5 weeks? I was there 16 years and saw no member of my family for the last 7.
Melissa (winkle1983) says
Wow…timely RB…painful to read but very true. Just…wow…
Zardu Bafflemaff says
Sad,pathetic,but inherently true.
Ugh! If I didn’t know better I would question whether or not SO members really talk and think like the guy in the strip, but I do know better. Co$ is ALWAYS worse than you think!
Sarah, you’re absolutely right! And they do talk like that. I can’t imagine them being happy though. I hated being on staff. However, it’s better than being in the Sea Org! That’s a fate worse than death.
As a person with experience in both., I can assure you that it is worse than death.
When the S.O. left me, all I had to look forward to was death. Still, it was a step up.
Cat W. says
“semblance of Affinity”
Yeah, that says it all.
Semblance of Affinity: retro band
Brilliant, RB. Although again, I threw up a little bit in my mouth.
So sad. So sick. So unnecessary. I’m so happy this organization is shrinking faster than Applebox Boy’s tiny chestnuts in a cold swimming pool.
I threw up a lot in my mouth. The bad taste lingers…
Beer, OSD, drink some beer. It’s medicinal in this case.
So is cannabis.
Mary Kahn says
? Atta girl.
I never get Atta’s at all. My burden to bear…..I mean, bare.
Wow! The dissonance, the dissonance.
I suspect that the “Teds” in the sea org will successfully drive out anyone not like minded, and that might just be for the best. The ‘Teds’ can KR and KSW each other until the Demented Midget is the last one standing.
The horror, the horror….
Yep, Joseph Conrad’s “Heart of Darkness” novella and Copolla’s ‘Apocalypse Now’ movie both delve into the same place that scientology has now gone with their inhumane behavior.
One of my favorite films.
OSD, Off Topic here: Vivid memory for me, August 1979.
Opening night for ‘Apocalypse Now’ at the Hollywood Cinerama Dome at 2 AM. Eight of us walk in including Bruce a long time sound man in town. We got 6th and 7th rows in the center for surround sound and video. We got handouts at the door and were told that the handouts were in lieu of screen credits, first weirdness. The auditorium began darkening and every one felt weirder with no audio or screen images. Then we heard the distant chopper sound and saw the background of the palms…more weirdness. After a loooong 15 seconds, The Doors hit their first chord of ‘This is the End’, and Bruce put his head on his knees and started saying; F***, f***, f*** . I wondered if he was having a Nam flashback and worried a bit.
Likewise, at the end and with total screen silence, Captain Willard and Lance motored into the fog in the PBR and the lights came on and everyone, but everyone, sat moments in stunned silence before exiting. Oh, and Bruce, it turns out, was the sound man for the first 3 years The Doors played. He left them before the drugs could kill him.
Wow! That’s all I can say.
Peter Norton says
Good start for. She might make it OUT before too long. Mom will be eagerly waiting.
I hope this comes true. Can you imagine the smile Mom will have?!
I see that RB’s hidden live feed cams in the CoS are back online.
And old sick puppy, obviously. I guess the capacity for fooling oneself, despite mounds of evidence, is just ingrained in some for the totality of their lives.
“I guess the capacity for fooling oneself, despite mounds of evidence, is just ingrained in some for the totality of their lives.”
Quite true and by far not only as regards Scientology. Asking questions, checking information, sorting thru information to separate fact from opinion, analyzing data is just too much work for some people. So much easier to have L Ron Hubbard or David Miscavige or your local pastor or Fox News or CNN tell you what to like and not like, do and not do, and who the good guys are and who the bad guys are. Its just so much quicker and easier.
Is ‘$cientologist Code of Honor’ the most oxymoronic phrase every used by human beings?
Yes…yes it is.
After a few years of peeling off the onion layers of my scientology mindset, I happened to encounter The Code of Honor one day. It was interesting to reread it again.
There are at minimum three of the numbered items that are utter boobytraps if you ever tried to follow them, cynically inserted in the most self-serving way by LRH.
When I recognized this, that was a turning point for me regarding LRH’s “tech”. What happened was I realized it was way too much work to weed out the bullshit from the stuff that may have had some benign workability.
Too many land mines designed to manipulate, create dependence, and misdirect.
It’s nice being back in command of your own viewpoint, instead of being dependent on the knowledge teat of “Source”. Geez…
Keep lying, conspiring
Knowing you can never count on me, for sure
That’s what friends are for
In bad times, make up crimes
Serving COB forevermore
That’s what friends are for
Oh, MJM, what are you doing to one of my soft rock faves? Clever though 🙂
Sorry Aqua, the muse made me do it. 😉
Nice pun, OSD 🙂
Good one RB.Maybe If someone has word cleared all your cartoons they can attest to: CCL completion(Cause over Cult Logic).
Cult Logic: Nerd Band
That’s pretty much the “logic.” (Sigh) (Eyeroll) (Gag)
That’s another thing! There’s absolutely no logic in this cult! None.
Peggy L says
I am about at the point where the logical way to view this cult is to expect nothing short of a scorched earth tactic. I’m about half through John Sweeney’s book The Church of Fear. The testimonials are just, well, not sure how to describe the effect it has on reading them. Sweeney’s own account of the treatment he received has me thinking that man needs a gold star for not just cashing in his chips and writing about something safer, like maybe the Mafia, or al-Qaeda.
Wow, RB. That hits home. And accurately portrays the continuing mindf—k rampant in Scientology. I always say to those who know little about the Cherch, “whatever you’ve seen or read about Scientology, it’s no exaggeration, it’s always worse!”
Ohhhhh ………… that ones hits the ole buttons RB! Great job and right on target.
