Yep corny, but that’s just the way it is in the mental kitchen of Scientology. The chief chefs reside at Flag and insist upon repeat customers. One dish of something is never enough!

Well, regarding tiramisu, that is true: having one, will NOT decrease my desire for another one (at the very least, the next day). I shall not grieve about diverging opinions on tiramisu either, that just means more tiramisu is left for me. (Right?) – Now, if we only could get Davey addicted to something else than money and sadism… Something self-destructive and dangerous perhaps… Ehh, wait, he’s already an alcoholic! :>

Unfortunately alcohol generally takes awhile, but yes, perhaps something like the onset of dementia. He may get slack with his security… he’s not short of people who detest him.

It is always Thursday 2pm in the $cienoverse. Pay now, pay the credit card company when and if you can. Bankruptcy is also a $cieno sacrament.

Desperately protecting each’s ‘hat’ and Thursday stat.
And that- boys and girls- is the BIG PICTURE of scientologists.

Re: Today’s panel.
I DO NOT APPRECIATE REGRADED BEING MAKING FUN OF FLAG LIKE THAT! MONEY PAID FOR SERVICES AT FLAG IS MONEY WELL SPENT AS IT ENABLES YOU TO BECOME A MORE THETA PERSON AND IT GIVES YOU SPECIAL ACCESS TO THE MOST THETA BEING IN THE MEST UNIVERSE! AND THAT WOULD BE ME!

Re: previous comm particle.
Wow, sir! I had no idea. It looks like I was wrong about Scientology all this time. Let me check my bank accounts and……
Ha, ha! Gotcha! You actually fell for that! Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha! What a moron! Most theta being in the MEST universe my ass!
And while I got you on the comm line, how’s your wife?
No love at all,

Yup! Alice gotta go back to Flag and re-do that CRaP yet again. Nothing in Ron’s world is stable. Alice might just get her very own Introspection RunDOWN out of it, poor girl.

Maybe it will prompt her to walk straight out.
I am at a loss for words! I really am.

“ARC Broken” LOL
Do Scientologists really say that? Just when I think I know all the jargon a new term or combination of terms pops up.

Yes, Scientologists really do say “ARC Broken.” One variation: “I have an ARC break.” I think I’ve used “ARCX” as well.
Per the Scientology Technical Dictionary and the definition of “ARC,” Hubbard wrote, “One does not… fall out of ARC, he has an ARC break.” And, yes, there’s a separate definition for “ARC Break.” The abbreviation really is ARCX.
I’ve never noticed it before, but there is a plethora of ARC Break-related phrases in that dictionary: ARC Break Assessment; ARC Break Long Duration; ARC Break Needle; ARC Break Straightwire; ARC Broken PCs.
We were all expected to understand this stuff whenever it came up in our courses or auditing. These were definitions and phrases that we were supposed to “clear” and, if needed, drill.
After 37 years of that oppression, I’m so happy to be on the outside looking in.

It’s common for subcultures to develop their own lingo. Cults, however rely on it to distinguish between outsiders and their fellow cultists for, you know, many reasons.
July 2, 2022 at 5:11 pm
Also to add to Fred’s explanation below…ARC stands for “Affinity”, “Reality” and “Communication”.
Here is the definition from whatisscientology.org which has a pretty good Scientology terms glossary.
affinity-reality-communication (ARC) triangle: a triangle which is a symbol of the fact that affinity, reality and communication act together to bring about understanding. No point of the triangle can be raised without also raising the other two points, and no point of it can be lowered without also lowering the other two points.
And their definition of ARC Break…
ARC break: a sudden drop or cutting of affinity, reality or communication with someone or something. Upsets with people or things (ARC breaks) come about because of a lessening or sundering of affinity, reality or communication or understanding. Scientologists usually use the term ARC break instead of upset, because if one discovers which of the three points of understanding have been cut, one can bring about a rapid recovery in the person’s state of mind.
All made up WOO. It is used quite successfully to control people. All cults have their own Sooper Sekret made up languages. Hopefully this one is dying on the vine with only the hardcore koolaid drinkers left. Especially now that Scientology is no longer about moving up the Bridge but status status status…ie give money, give money, give money for absolutely nothing.
Oh, RB! You’ve done it again!
“Any PC who’s agreed to spend any money……um, er, I mean, get services at Flag….”
Love the Freudian slip!

Few things are more bad news than a Scientologist telling you they have good news.

Ammo: you are right.
1400 bucks for a “free night” is an unbeatable offer, if she still has that much cash left after she sees the IAS and is rooted to the Accomos Reg.
And, if she does not, she can always sleep in AO3 as I did in the early 80’s. I was woken up in the night 3 or 4 times by roaches (actually palmetto bugs) crawling on my face and I had to fling them off of me. That is FAR less than one hundredth of my problems with the S.O You may hear the rest soon ( If I am still alive) Shit, I got ahead of myself again).
Hell, I got out 20 years ago (barely alive while the then only Right Arm Captain in the S.O. ordered my wife to “End Cycle” on me as I would soon be dead.
He was right, as always, because he (Captain Napier of the Freewinds)
was making sure of it by sending me to a Chiropractor to be treated for full-blown AIDS that I got 13 years ago; either by Julie Powiesnik, who later married the Captain, or by blood products in the hospital in Curacao, the Freewind’s home port.
The should have just told me to buy a 44 Magnum, once the most powerful handgun in the world; and that it it would be the Greatest Good for the Greatest number of Dynamics if I just blew my own head Clean off with it.
Had they done so. I estimate that there was a 75 percent probability that I would have followed the order.
Then when they finally released my wife, which they had held against her will for 6 months, they told her to “Take me to a Hospice so that I could die”. Had she complied with the order, it would be as good as the 44 Magnum. My doctor ( when I finally got one) told me that in the hospice I would not have gotten any treatment for HIV but would have just been made comfortable until I was dead.

With my decades working in both the cherch and our government I can tell you that the latter will never do anything to/about the former. The government serves only itself; it is not working in the public interest whatsoever. The government is just as worthless as the cult. Utterly despicable!

It’s Free! Only $1,400! Second and third re-runs of expensive “services” are common, and often demanded by Miscavige.
The sums bandied about sound unbelievable. But the money-grubbing Regges work hard to skim-scam their 10% off the top, using every love-bombing, guilt-tripping tactic in the book, and then some. They hand the poor rubes off to equally well-trained hard-sell artists at Flag, who get their pint of green blood before handing the poor rube off to another, and another, and another… each person wanting, needing, Must Have-ing what they think of as Their Money.
Get The Money. By Thursday at 2 pm. Or The World As We Know It Will End.
Meanwhile, back at the hidden rooms occupied by one Diminutive Mismanage, the cash accumulates into piles, and the credit floats away on a sea of slippery electrons, squirted into secret accounts in secret locations, managed by a person or persons who also remain secret.
How the IRS can fail to see the ongoing inurement of cherch money by Mismanage, and maybe a few other top members, is beyond me.
July 1, 2022 at 12:08 pm
I believe that the IRS is aware of all the private inurement going on but are too afraid of Mismanage because if they act against him he’ll bury them under a pile of lawsuits like he did in 1993.

That’s the only strategy MustSavage knows: Nip around their ankles until they give up. Bringing frivolous suits is CHEAP, compared to what Dwarfenführer is extorting from his followers!
