It’s big news
Spoiler alert. Save you needing to attend. You are expected to get more money for Ideal Orgs. More money for the IAS. More money for the FSO. More money for the FSSO. More money for planetary dissemination. More money for WTH campaigns. More money for CCHR. More money for Narconon. More money for Youth For Human Rights. More money for the LRH Hall. Just more money.
The Big Push
Good luck with Adelaide, Brisbane, ACT….
Oh, it’s in Canada too…
Easier to use the same promo and change bits and pieces
Well, they are REALLY going all out. You know what those poor “OT Ambassadors” are being hammered about on the MV…
…breaking? Yeah, this is really new stuff.
Dress as your favorite star…
How many Tom Cruise’s will show? You will be sec checked if he is NOT your favorite movie star.
Well, if the event doesn’t attract you…
The Hula Dancers sure will… Do people from Hawaii have some significance to the Maiden Voyage? How about some Eskimo dancers?
OK, at least it’s Caribbean…
But that photo is so low-res I wonder if they stole it from a comic book?
At 1 a week (maybe) for each org (being generous) they will have 150 in a year.
Nice “graph” though.
Another Block Party…
Wonder how the downtown bars will react?
This really is fantastic…
The gangway is NOT open….
44 years sacrificed for nothing…
Literally, they have achieved not a single thing in all that time.
Wait, there’s more…
What about the hula dancers and the steel band?
And now the magnificence of Tom Cummins too? This is all too much.
The expansion is exponential…
It’s revitalizing! Why did they need to be revitalized? Did their excitement wane?
Unprecendented [sic] expansion
If it’s so good, how come it’s a closed door briefing?
An “ideal org” in Dublin?
They don’t even have an ORG?
What is D’Agostini doing here? This guy in the wheelchair seems to be the ONLY person who gives money to Columbus.
24th June, 2017 for the Scientology ‘Maiden Voyage’. Oohh, we’ll get to see millyuns and millyuns of sheep out on the streets baahing in joy at the sight of his shortness, Definitley Minisize, speakifying for hours and hours.
“Superbad Humanitarian” I…uh…er…can’t think of a think to think about this.

Find out “what stalls cases.” We all know what prevents you from not making any bridge progress–It’s no longer that “old” reason of any out-tech phenomena. It’s “hasn’t contributed enough money for nothing in return to be able to then pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for your next bridge steps.”

“Dress as your favourite Hollywood Star”… I’d be interested to know how many dress as Kirstie Alley (in her larger days) or as an eau natural John Travolting.
“Bring your laptops!”… yes, please do, and livestream it for the world to see. I am sure Mr. Cummins and Mr. Miscavige wouldn’t mind at all.
I’m sure we will all be gobsmacked at the wisdom that will gush forth in only a few hours, and we will all rush out to join or re-join scientology. Here is my wallet, where do I pay? (contact your local registrar… yeeeecccchhh).
Oh Boston!! “Dress as your favorite Hollywood Star”.
Hmm. This got me wondering about CoS pc. I mean, if everyone dressed as someone favored by CoS, then it might turn into a Tom lookalike convention. Shiny suit, big hubcap size medallion. Or the Risky Business look. Big shirt, white draws, socks.
How bout, oh.. Danny Masterson? Some fun costumes could include Joy Villa, Juliette Lewis.
I wonder if anyone will go as Leah Remini? 😀
No Mike. The gangway IS open, just one-way however. You can board, give em your passport but never be permitted to leave.
I don’t know if those guys in the ad for Dublin and Birmingham are free to be on a picture for the Ideal ORG in Quebec city? It could be the same lies all around the world.

Mark Fulton says
The same stuff, over and over. It is amazing the ‘in’ group do not become tried and disenchanted with the same old hustle. I guess you become accustomed to this, but it would wear me out.
An I did not know there was a ‘SuperBad Humanitarian’ level for donations. Who would have guessed.
Come and find out what’s happening.
Actually, nothing is happening, but, never mind, we’ll give you something to eat because of course we know you’ll never give us any attention unless we tempt you with food. Then after you’ve stuffed yourselves like the craven, unenlightened beings that you are, we’ll spin out a few hours telling you absolutely nothing. But, we’ll do it so creatively you’ll come away feeling fine. That’s a promise! You’ll feel great, despite the nothingness. You’ll never be able to tell, anyway. Look, we’re very good at this. After all, we’ve been trumpeting and yahooing to you about nothing for decades – we’d better be good at it, right? See you there!
Few questions: what’s a Superbad humanitarian? $50.00?
I noticed the poster said “entire USA convention” but will be hosted in the Valley org chapel? So the whole USA will fit in Valley org?
They are using Dianetics now instead of Scientology as their business sign? Love the location. One stop shopping. You can park your car, visit the dentist, be audited, get medical supplies, hire immigration lawyer & get some PIs for security help. LOL
Scientology promotion functions in an alternative universe. People who live in the REAL WORLD look at those e-flyers and see a weird impression of some world disconnected from reality that really belongs in the time of Mark Twain, riverboats and buggywhips and gold leaf perfillimg on the ceiling. Or Buster Crab fighting the evil Ming The Merciless in Flash Gordon circa 1930s.
Of course Miscavige fancies himself the new tiny version of Flash Gordon. Fighting evil SPs on the planet Teegeac(Mongo in the series).

Ms. B. Haven says
My favorite this week is the Solo & OT flyer. If you can’t make it to the seminar because you have some more important things to do like catch up on some Gilligan’s Island reruns or watch the paint dry in your newly remodeled hovel, I have provided the answers for you below.
WHAT SKILLS AND TRAINING DO YOU NEED TO MAKE IT ON THE ADVANCED COURSES?
The ability to have your breath show up on a mirror and the ability to tap yourself out financially as well as anyone who will associate with you after they find out what you need the money for.
WHAT STALLS CASES?
Running out of money and being associated with anyone who might be even remotely perceived as being antagonistic towards you because they know that you are a scientologist. The later is not really a problem as long as you have enough money to do endless PTS handlings and Sec Checks.
WHAT GUARANTEES A SURE WAY TO GO OT?
Having access to way more money that you paid in advance for the OT levels to cover review, PTS handlings, Sec Checks, over priced accommodations and meals, etc. In addition it helps greatly never to question or doubt anything thrown your way by a course sup, ethics officer, MAA, reg, ED, recruiter, body router, qual personnel, receptionist, etc. You must also be 110% in-KSW and have refined taste buds with which to savor the gourmet Kool-Aid provide by the Church.
WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE YOUR INVITATION TO THE OT LEVELS?
Having more money than God. If not, then just the willingness to hand over anything and everything you have accumulated as assets in this or any other lifetime and get even more than that if asked. You also have to be a member of the IAS in good standing and promise that you will move up in status asap even if it means selling your first born (or donating the loathsome child to the Sea Org).
Really well put!
One of the promo pieces shows three LA Ideal Orgs and Inglewood is listed as an Ideal Org. When did that happen? How did that happen? Inglewood has been dead as a doornail since it’s opening and thereafter. So are they lying about it being ideal? Or did they change the stats kept so as to show it as a booming and increasing org? In most of the previous pictures of it, the people were mostly white and no blacks or very little were shown, yet Inglewood is predominantly black. Those white people were SO that they put in the pictures to make it look like lots of staff and people were there. So what gives?
An Ideal Org is an EMPTY Org! They are getting something right!
Birmingham could have at least pointed out which of the four people in the photo was Joe. Do they use this photo for 4 posters, I wonder…
“Many are called. Few are chosen” …
Many are called. Few succumb.
Many are Called. Few are suckered.
They should make a Sea Org poster with Tom Cruise reprising his A Few Good Men role, saluting COB. Better yet, reenact the trial scene but, in real life.
I like the Sherman Oaks Mission.
Right below the office of an immigration attorney!
So all those Sea Ogres from Eastern Europe will have somewhere to run when Trump sends in the deportation squad!
Yep, I was thinkin again about all that You do for the planet good buddy. It’s all about Thursday Funnies! So whaddayagonnado about the Fleecewinds and the world of shrinking ports-of-call?
You could upgrade to a nuclear submarine and then you could lower your fossil fuel consumption. It would also work for those times when You need to be incognito (spelled underground) ………….. which is kinda like all the time these days I assume.
Anyway, with new arrivals for Oh Tea Ate at all time lows the question becomes how to continue to bail out Your rust buckets bottom line? Scrap it out, get more slaves on bored to do the toothbrush scrub routine or upgrade to a more expensive yacht. Become a humanitarian Dave and donate toward Your next level …….lets get a real ideal scrap heap on the waters for Your Cult. Show us how it’s done Dave.
Michael Fairman says
Off topic here, and on the subject of Mark Rathbun’s latest video concerning Leah Remini: He cites a conversation he had with Ms. Remini, in which she admits to scripting and basically controlling and fostering the emotional content of the episodes aired in :Scientology, the Aftermath”. If false, this needs to be refuted in no uncertain terms.
Mike Rinder says
Michael I can assure you this is completely false and is merely a recounting of the church’s lies. You can ask any of the many contributors who have been on the show (including plenty of Non Scientologists) whether they have been scripted or rehearsed and the answer will uniformly be the same.
The only scripted and rehearsed videos are the Korean POW style videos they put on their hate sites – or these ones from Marty.
I have neither the time nor inclination to respond to the many falsehoods contained in these videos. But as you asked and because this besmirched a lot of good people who have bravely told their stories, I felt this deserved a response. Perhaps some of those people might see this and respond to you here too.
Michael Fairman says
Thank you Mike. Given the bizarre commentary from Marty in his entire series of videos I suspected this was more of the same. But his last comments were so brazen it really jarred me. I was deeply moved by those in all the episodes of the show, and I personally experienced Joy’s sorrow and anguish, when her sister disconnected along with her two young children, whom she loves very much. I will now have to leave Marty, whom I admired, trusted and respected to the past. Such is life, I’m afraid. Thank you again Mike for taking the time.
I Yawnalot says
Very weird turn of events. Marty has literally declared himself! He’s turned himself into an SP for both camps now.
I think your spot on with this observation. For some reason Marty has decided to dead agent himself publicly and he is doing a great job of it!
My two cents worth…………..
I might guess that Dave offered Marty something juicy enough that Marty took the bait………. probably mutually out ruds …….so to speak.
But now Dave has material to show the ‘still in and drinking clan’ the proof needed that Marty, a known disavowed $cientologist, is telling it like it really is.
This is the truth, trust me approach of Dave to his most ardent supporters. Very likely that the Duggans et al will be given a special showing and perhaps even arrange for a private meeting with Marty. Any financial transactions would of course be completely outside of the cherch.
So I guess that you guess that if you can show your minions something straight from Marty that refutes what is happening to your shrinking cult …… then somehow this will stem the exodus before ‘Season Two’ debuts.
Newsflash Dave ……….. you are pissing into a strong wind. Whatever you spew will return in spades ……… so to speak.
Has it occurred to anyone to check if Marty was referring to Leah’s previous show “Family Matters”, which was a reality show and did have a family therapy episode?
Would it not be incumbent on honest people to fact-check something like this, rather than publicly pillorying Marty on an assumption that might be mistaken?
Sorry, I got the title of her show wrong – it is “It’s All Relative”.
Mike Rinder says
Yes, it occurred to me.
Without going into any discussion about whether the statements Marty makes about his supposed correspondence with Leah Remini are true or not (he didnt come up with any dox and based on what he has claimed about supposed things he has said about me of which he knows NOTHING, I assume these are just more lies).
So, that aside, the question becomes what is the purpose of trying to assert that Leah’s earlier, non-scientology related reality tv show was not “authentic”? Only to create the impression that every TV show Leah Remini is involved in is scripted and not real. Marty feigns shock and surprise that a “reality show” is not real? Oh come on, does he think The Kardashians and Housewives of Atlanta etc etc are totally “real” and nothing is scripted or prepared beforehand? Does Marty live in a hole? Sorry to break the news to anyone that doesnt know, but “reality tv” is not real. I wonder if Marty is upset that there was a script on King of Queens?
He is of course trying to conflate “It’s All Relative” with “Scientology: The Aftermath” – a “reality” show and a docuseries? He would be upset if someone tried to say that because Battlefield Earth is fiction, this means DMSMH is also fiction. Same person, two different genres.
Marty makes pronouncements as if he is an expert on everything. Clearly he knows nothing about TV shows.
So, what did your honest fact-checking lead you to conclude?
It appeared to me your initial response to his assertion gave the impression you thought he was talking about “Aftermath”, which I don’t think he was. So who’s conflating, if that’s true?
The given episode of “Family Matters” does appear to have scripted elements. Whether or not there is really any difference in kind between the two shows, I have no idea, and do not take anyone’s word for it. I guess I’ve seen too much of the Internet and the other media, to take anything for granted, or to accept anything said at face value right off the bat. There are too many layers to the reality onion.
Marty is gossiping. Why? I think it’s because he has been endlessly gossiped about. I don’t know, but some of what he says is plausible as far as I’m concerned. As usual, there are probably elements of truth on both sides. The differences are in how the basic facts are spun.
I don’t really lend much credence to most online comments on any site. There are trolls and sycophants everywhere, on any post on any subject, and everyone is an “expert”, or so they would like to appear. So my attitude has become thoroughly skeptical. Thoroughly. Opinions are less than a dime a dozen.
So I’m not trying to pick on you, Nor am I trying to pick on Marty. You have plenty enough commenters taking care of that, like the guy who disagreed with something I posted, so dubbed me an “insane troll”. A truly reasoned response, right? What does that make him? There are omissions and logical fallacies on both sides, and I sometimes notice those.
Anyway, carry on. I think you’re a pretty decent guy who is doing the best he can, which is often pretty damn good. It so happens I think Marty is, too.
Valkov, I don’t think Marty is “gossiping” for the reason you think he is, but other than that you’ve expressed my views exactly – better than I ever could have.
Mike Rinder says
Well, what do you think about conflating now? His latest video comes right out and says “The Aftermath” is Leah’s “second reality tv show” (it was clear to everyone except you I guess that this is where he was going, he just had to set up the first “reality tv” and then attached the next one to it) and that all participants in the show are scripted, rehearsed liars who don’t have any stories worth telling.
You still think this is worth defending?
Not one word of my episode was scripted.
All david miscavige knows how to do is lie and deceive. I think this is just an attempt on his part to use Marty to discredit the show to the remaining parishioners or to whatever news agency is willing to show these videos or print this crap without doing any research as to the truth of the matter.
david miscavige is desperate and deceit and lies are all he knows.
I posted on Marty’s website but they were deleted – yet all the other ppl comments do post. It’s obvious the ppl commenting on his site are all CoS ppl.
They even used Leah’s comment about “if it’s not true then why isn’t there a defamation/libel suit filed”?
Marty stated Leah faked her entire departure from CoS along with colluding with Tony & Mike, to then produce a show about it all just to make money. LOL
If Marty wasn’t so boring, it would be funny.
Harpoona Frittata says
Nope, you’re hardly the only one whose posts never see the light of day. Most of us with questions for him have long since given up on the possibility that he’ll engage in discussion or answer up.
Yep, no posting on Marty’s. I’ve tried a few times. Yet Mike allows MTCents and Marildi all of the time.
Most people here are tolerant or supportive of people practicing benevolent Scientology.
So Mike allows dissent and Marty dumps all dissent.
This one fact tells the story. One side is free flow of ideas; wog value
One side suppresses criticism and free flow of ideas; Scientology propagandist value.
A very telling fact.
Brian, I’m waiting to see if my post (above) about which of Leah’s reality shows Marty was referring to, will pass moderation and be posted here. You do know, don’t you, that she had a previous reality show titled “Family Matters”, right?
I have posted 4 times and each has been rejected. Marty is very selective in what h allows to be posted…
Hmm, he’s selectively editing what he allows the public to hear of a person’s voice and opinions.
Isn’t that something someone is complaining LOUDLY about having happened to him?
Can we all say, PROJECTION together?
the allegations about the show being scripted were in reference to leah’s reality show with her own family. supposedly marty texted her some negative feedback after he watched an episode that involved a therapy session, and leah chided him by saying marty just didn’t understand that reality shows are all scripted.
apparently this master plan concocted by the Troika has been going on since at least 2013, and marty’s been in contact with each of the players during the whole time. he wants to deconstruct and critique it all, and at the same time he claims he’s been in constant contact with Mike, Leah, and Tony, just chit-chatting about how their lives are going. we’re expected to believe that they love marty so much that each one reveals their secrets to him, while backstabbing each other and the unsuspecting public.
it’s really quite incredible, and the fact that there are people who are eating it up is stunning.
Mike Rinder says

There are people that eat up Alex Jones too.
And Warren Jeffs.
And white supremacists.
There are always some – the fact that there are so few is indicative of how unpopular his actions and opinions are.
Chris wrote: “the allegations about the show being scripted were in reference to leah’s reality show with her own family”
That’s right. It’s clear that he wasn’t talking about Leah’s and your series (…Aftermath) being scripted.
that’s a helpful perspective, Mike. I wonder how many of them think Obama is a demon who smells like sulfur and attracts flies wherever he goes.
Well Chris, there are people who eat up what Tony is shoveling, too. As well as some of the comments on this blog, too. Is that incredible and stunning?
i asked myself that very question last night, Valkov. i think it comes down to how critically you evaluate all the information – including: big picture context, past history, logic, separation of fact vs opinion, and a dash of common sense.
Tony’s gotten snotty with me in the past, but his work is well-sourced and consistent. Leah’s personality is a little bigger than what i’m personally comfortable with (yes, i’m a snowflake), but she’s been consistent. AND, she has presented the many stories of others whose past interactions corroborate what they’ve told on her show. Mike is about as steadfast as you can get; he’s not afraid to admit when he’s been wrong, and his compassion for others is without question.
Marty, on the other hand, has changed his stories so much you could get whiplash trying to follow them. he’s a hot-head who doesn’t like to be challenged. several people have presented evidence (see tony’s blog posts) that debunks Marty’s ramblings about Going Clear. several have presented information that conflicts with Marty’s (ever-changing) comments about My Scientology Movie. Mike’s said he hasn’t spoken to Marty in 2+ years – yet, Marty claims to have had relatively recent conversations with Mike, Leah, and Tony – AND that they’re all backstabbing each other.
you don’t have to be too smart to see through all of these bullshit stories about failed fundraisers, and made up smear campaigns if you A. consider the source, B. give minimal thought to the timeline, and C. take off your tinfoil hat and think about what makes the most sense: 3 people have been conspiring for years with countless other co-conspirators in order to – what? get a bunch of money? or 1 person (who was not all that even-keeled to begin with) has gone off the rails in order to (fill in the blank from your choice from about 20 equally plausible reasons).
Mick Roberts says
Michael (and others), I’m hesitant to weigh in on what I consider to be the overriding “theme” of these videos (which seem to be actually defending this “church” by attacking its most prominent critics) for a number of reasons, but one reason is because I’m a never-in, and don’t personally know anyone who was ever in, and I don’t have any kind of a “story” to tell or any other personal experience with this organization. All I can go by is what I’ve seen, heard, and learned in the little more than half a year I’ve been passionate about this subject. Perhaps this can provide a perspective from a complete “outsider looking in”.
Without getting into what Marty said in the past vs what he is saying now (quite a bit of which seems to be very contradictory), these claims that the narrative is scripted, or that people are getting paid, or that some Group of Three controls the narrative, or any of this other stuff…..let’s do a little intellectual exercise here.
Let’s say that, hypothetically, just for the sake of argument, that these bizarre allegations are true. Let’s say, again hypothetically, that there are only three individuals who are setting the “narrative” and are getting rich off this stuff. Ok, if you want to believe that, fine…..but what about the hundreds (if not thousands) of other former members who corroborate these allegations…..and who have gotten absolutely nothing for speaking out?
As I said, I’ve only been interested in this subject for a little more than half a year, and I know I’ve only heard from a relative handful of all of the former members that are out there (and those are just the ones who are willing to speak out), but I have heard from literally dozens of former members (perhaps even more than a hundred) that this so-called “narrative” is absolutely true.
Even if you want to believe that this “Troika” is in it just for the money and makes stuff up as they go along, what about all of the other people out there with their own individual horror stories? What is their motivation? Reconnect with their family members (which prove that disconnection is real)? Prevent others from suffering the same abuses that they suffered from this organization (even at the risk of getting Fair Gamed)?
What’s in it for them? Forget the “Troika” or any other “Leader” of the critic community. What about the countless other victims, who get paid nothing, who risk getting Fair Gamed, some of whom only wish to reconnect with their loved ones, some of whom wish to seek justice against severe abuses they had to suffer, even as a child?
I can only conclude, that if there truly is some “Group of Leaders” who are “controlling the narrative”, then it all must be just some obscenely massive conspiracy that includes literally thousands of former members.
Which is most logical? A) That there’s a massive conspiracy where thousands of people (if not tens of thousands) are “in on the game” without any of them breaking ranks and spilling the beans (which I’m sure the “church” would love to pay for)? Or B) that this perceived “Group of Leaders” is doing nothing more than providing a platform to give an even louder voice to those thousands of individuals who are all corroborating these claims (even if the individual experiences might differ) and who are the ones that truly “set the narrative” based on factual events that they experienced, and that many are still experiencing?
I can only go with the option that makes the most sense logically. And every logical cell in my body is forcing me to believe that this so-called “narrative” is accurate and is based on the very real experiences of literally thousands of individuals. I’ve seen no credible evidence, including in these videos, that lead me to even come close to believing otherwise.
Sorry for adding yet another comment to this particular discussion Mike. I’m sure you must be getting pretty tired of it, but I’ve been quite bothered about this stuff for a few days and just wanted to throw my thoughts out there and get it off my chest.
James Morris says
Consider this: The visible motives and benefits in re the Marty Tapes, effort and content, smack of a huge portion of what I imagine FFT’s projection of crimes and treasonous thoughts
of his own onto everyone else. Most especially the “troika” .
And he projects all the crimes all the time!
Mick, that’s transparently not what Marty is saying.
EeeeGads. I’m so glad I’m DONE and OUT.
Old Surfer Dude says
I glad you’re done and out, too.
No, no, no, I’m Done and it’s pronounced Dunrunnin. Oh wait, that’s my World of Warcaft gnome character I’m thinking about…noooo, reality shifting…wheeee…
Anyway, it’s always pleasant to see the slow but sure destruction of this cult.
A Diamond says
Am I wrong to think the members keep getting told “This is the biggest event of the year!” “You don’t want to miss this event”, “You are required to attend…..” ???
To you members and former members, what went through your mind when you would receive flyers/letters/emails over and over like these please? And, did you truly believe the exponential expansion numbers?
Thank you in advance for your replies.
I Yawnalot says
Think I’ll rename Thursday as “air sick bag day.” Especially prompted by seeing that guy in the wheelchair – I can imagine what his personal hopes and aspirations are but in truth he has fallen face first into a pit of smiling, ‘want to be your best friends forever,’ vipers.
It’s not something I’ve ever been proud of but as a young man I spent considerable time being trained in the military technology of booby traps and mine warfare, both laying and the nerve wracking task of defusing. One appropriate, and it’s in the army manual too, definition of a booby trap is, “a savage practical joke” and it uses life’s natural habits, the curiosity or natural aspirations of humans as bait or lures. Defines Scientology really well doesn’t it?
Found the steel drum image’s source:
“Dubai Entertainers” – so wrong on so many levels …
And here are the Hawaiians – the still is from around 1:51:
Copyright doesn’t seem to mean much in the world of COS – except when their own ‘scripture’ is in play.
$cientology has adopted all the trimmings of an Amway Sales seminar. The only difference is the lack of semi-useful cleaning products. Though wallets and bank accounts will be cleared, it won’t be done in a clean matter. $cientology, the Mr. Clean of financial matters.
Well, ‘clean’ until you ask what was done with your ‘donation’.
Doug Sprinkle says
Seeing the guy in the wheelchair get fleeced over and over is sad. After he can no longer give amymore he will be tossed away like last weeks garbage. It still amazes me that these people can’t see that these statuses are totally worthless.
Old Surfer Dude says
That’s because they love bomb the shit out of them!
John P. Capitalist says
Of particular interest is the “All USA Ideal Org Convention” at the new Valley Org. There’s no specific date for this, just sometime in July. There’s less than a week left in June. Not too many public will be able to drop everything and plan to spend a week in transit and on site to do a convention with such short notice, so I’m sure the last-minute nature of this means attendance will be near zero.
Regardless, if anyone at all attends, it will provide the Valley Org with a nice spike on their “Bodies In Shop” number for the week… and if they have the convention on a Thursday and Friday, they get to count the same bodies under “Bodies in Shop” for two weeks. That’ll make them look like heroes until the next week when the number drops back to zero again and they find their condition downgraded to “ranting shitstorm” or whatever.
And of course, the bump in the Bodies In Shop number won’t actually result in anyone new being captured by Scientology. And it won’t really turn things around for the biggest and most expensive…and also emptiest and most useless… Ideal Org in the who archipelago of Ideal Orgs that were supposed to drive all that expansion.
James Morris says
Firstly, the guy in the wheelchair, Scientology can help with that. But. Why hasn’t it? You’re missing some overts, I think. MUs, at least, as tech ALWAYS works perfectly!
Secondly, Tom Cummins. Has American Power and Gas been audited recently? By a reputable accounting agency? No mysterious funds fueling your successes?
The All USA Ideal Org convention is soooooo huge they don’t even have a date or time … it just says “July”. Love it!
