Meaning — do they have any money?
Why is Dallas sending people to Austin?
Dallas is a small and failing “ideal org”… They need staff there.
“Natural” common sense
Another waste of time
They’ve been doing this for decades and still can’t even get Toronto done…
Half these people haven’t done SS 1 or Student Hat?

Key LRH data on the standard use of computers!!
Like he had a clue.
Wonder if he will brief them about the Duke of Chug?
Some people are in contact with ExtraTerrestrials, there are hundreds of thousands of races that look similar to human in this quadrant of the galaxy alone, they all have their own spiritual advancement technology, we here on Earth have our own technology that unilke scientology actually works. Here is a video made by an ET man from planet Erra pointing out how we could get spiritual gain with our own spiritutal advancement technology that was developed by humans, except its not scientology, it originates from the psychiatrist Carl Jung. Probably the real reason scientology had not existed before on the whole track is because it does not work, but this does work :

How sad, an OT VIII (Pam McKinnis) joining staff in Chicago for a Founding Member staff pin. The true definition of a “lifer”.
Pam McKinness says she’s been on staff “a long time” and yet she is just now joining staff at Chicago Org.
Ergo, one can safely deduce that she has been moonripped, can one not?
And is there not strict Hubbard policy against taking staff from one CL V from one org to staff up another, and why am I even asking this question because I know there is this policy.
And moonripping is how Miscavige beefs up his staff to the requisite 200 for each new Ideal Morgue’s 15 minutes of Saint Hill Size fame.
I recall that several staff members from my tiny org were moonripped, along with several OTVIIIs who had been long term public. My little org never recovered from losing those people.
They were already barely covering the essential posts, and when those people left, their posts remained unfilled and were from that time on held “from above”.
I was shocked at the time. Shocked! This was an outright violation of LRH! And it was being done via an ORDER to our org! Incredible. It must be “written up”!!! This was me, back in the day. Funny, right? I thought I knew LRH policy. I was a policy wonk…yeah! Deluded and clueless – that’s what I was 🙂
Yeah, I think we all sank in that quicksand, thinking policy was a lifeguard.
Still cleaning the egg of the face. Such a lonely thing Scientology.
Right! Looking back now, I see that in my former Class V Org, “policy” never got in the way of expediency, when an order came down. “Policy” was for US public to follow without exception. For the staff, use of policy amounted to a luxury use. They followed it when it didn’t get in the way of an order! Amazing how clearly I see this now, and how blinded to it I was then! In fact, I’m experiencing such a win that I just might right this up as a Success Story and send it into my former org as a cognition of magnitude 🙂
Edit: “…just might WRITE this up…”
Damn these work phone calls and work issues that pop up that interfere with my posting on Mike’s blog!
Haha, I’m sure they’d love a copy.
That is, if they could understand it, they’re not the sharpest tool in the shed Scientologists. Probably misconstrue the whole thing and think how wonderful Hubbard is or something.

It ain’t moonripping! It’s called transfer of personnel to more vital positions in the organization! When we move our staff from one org to another, each transferred staff member gains valuable experience that allows them to advance in staff status as well as moving up the Bridge more effectively!
So watch what you say, ho!

To: Midshipman Shananay Muhammad Nation of Islam/ Sea Org
Even though I don’t think you deserve that honorific I shall use it as a means of getting your attention.
First I am distressed at your continuing to refer to Aquamarine by the term ‘ho’. This good lady is nothing of the sort. She is simply expressing her feelings about an organization she feels has wronged her. Namely, the one you belong to.
Second, you refer to moonripping as transfer of personnel. Why is this necessary? Is their current org failing? If this is the case then the answer is to get in LRH tech rather than move staff members around like pieces on a chessboard. Oh, but your beloved COB had his own tech which he calls the ‘Golden Age’ It doesn’t appear to be working very well.
And lastly, Mr. Muhammad, you say that this ‘transfer of personnel’ will cause an increase in staff status as well as speedy advancement up the Bridge. If this is the case, then why do most staff members never get past Staff Status Two or never seem to achieve the state of Clear much less Solo NOTs not to even mention OT1? All this is in violation of LRH policy but, then again, your dear leader, Mr. Miesczkiwicz, I believe, knows best.
I shall leave you now to ponder these uncomfortable truths and respectfully request that you never refer to Miss Aquamarine as ‘ho’ ever again.
No love at all,
Alcoboy it warms my heart and gives me an immense feeling of security whenever you defend Little Me against these Goliaths of Suppression. Boundless thanks as ever.

In one of the Management Volumes is the “INCOMM Series” policies on computers.
The key LRH data are:
a) Program computers to do work. They have to do work for you. For instance, when I was working on the “routing forms” project, I used one of the INCOMM simple “programs” for users, called the “User Defined Key” which are specifically built to “LRH computer standards”. LRH wished a “one press of the button” standard, for the computer program. You press the button ONCE, and it does a certain piece of work for you. So, INCOMM developed, for the advanced INCOMM computer users, this UDK, User Defined Key. I used it intensely, once i mastered it. (When I was on the “routing forms” project, i had a LOT of paperwork, and it was repetitive paperwork, computer button pushing. I figured out how to “one button push” compress a whole long sequence of work, into a one button press UDK key for myself. it saved me literally 9 hours of work per day, compared to doing all the steps by typing on the computer step by step by step, up to 30 steps I’d included into my UDK “one button press” “work.”
You have to see it, but INCOMM made UDK key options for “power users” in the INCOMM system.
This principle of UDK is already inherent in most regular computer systems most users use, they just need to be shown how to utilize it.
SO, if this man who is the software engineer displayed in the one ad, ONE really excellent “AI” tiniest pieces of getting the computer to “do work” which is the supposed LRH big idea, well LRH did at least emphasis this in 1982, way before people were using PCs much and back when usually if you were a user in 1982 of your own PC back then, you almost knew a lot of programmer basics, and you already had this curiosity and desire to figure out how to “do things” (essentially the same concept as “do work” or “AI”) yourself.
So it’s NOT new, it’s just using the computer’s power to do things, and some things you realize, like the UDK “one button” user program things as a “power user” for getting repetitive things done quicker, is that you can save time, for yourself.
It would take someone who already knows how to use UDK key, for instance, which I think is already available on almost all basic PCs today, and just interview someone, find out if the “work” they do daily with the computer can be aided by showing the person and building a UDK for the person, and showing the person how to build a UDK for themselve.
That’s the “AI” babyest steps for supposedly giving someone “INCOMM” LRH computer principle that is a nifty thing, if the person’s routines with their computer they use at work, is conducive to them utilizing the UDK (one button press tailored computer baby program) for them.
So this is “valid” “help” this guy might be offering. I could do it, and I’m only a “power user” level INCOMM Sea Org computer system user, who later became an INCOMM Computer Operations Officer, who did work in the INCOMM Computer rooms at Int and LA.
ex INCOMM staffer 1990-1992, then ASI Computer Guy 1992-1995 where at ASI we used the identical INCOMM computer setup. (INCOMM is the Sea Org based computer system all based on Hubbard’s general principles, which are pretty lackluster, and at best, LRH was buffoonishly science fiction George Jetson-ish.)
Re “Duke of Chug” this guy won’t even know of the Duke of Chug, as only those allowed to read the INCOMM “advices” traffic from LRH learn the story of the Duke of Chug.
The “one button press” principle, is mentioned in the Duke of Chug advice by LRH, because LRH tells the story how the computer was pre-programmed to find criminals within the organization.
Duke of Chug was an executive criminal. The “one button” press principle LRH mentions that with ONE press of the computer, it searched for a criminal staffer, found Chug, and then automatically ordered a replacement for Chug, and when the replacement arrives to replace Chug, the police are ordered simultaneously to arrest Chug, he’s led away, the replacement takes over for Chug, and then Chug is executed. And then LRH says, “all done with just the press of a button”. The “Chug Program” essentially seeks out criminals, searches for their replacement, orders all the necessary steps to happen to get the replacement to arrive to replace Chug, etc, etc.
All with the press of a button.
SO, should Scientologists all know this, in greater detail, and be allowed someday to read the FULL LRH INCOMM Chug traffic!
Yes, honestly, the INCOMM advices from LRH were in my opinions horribly edited and failed to give the exciting full details of what LRH wished to have in INCOMM.
There is a LOT of LRH’s final years orders which have NOT been made public, and ought to be.
Frankly, the Scientologists should just see the real full LRH final advices, and deal with LRH’s mentality, and his full wishes.
If Scientologists really wish to take responsibility and do the full outlay of things LRH wished done, they ought to know what LRH said!
I’ve said it hundreds of times, the full content of LRH’s private writings ought be made public, for the Scientologists to see LRH’s mind and final wishes.
And for outsiders to really see those other details behind the scenes.
Outsiders already have a huge advantage, since many of us have been retelling what we remember, me, I’ve told more about Duke of Chug than anyone I know, and I wish some interest were there.
But we need someone like Shelly to just release ALL of LRH’s final years of private traffic, from 1978 to LRH’s death, just release it all.
I know Australian English is an R-less dialect, but Melbourne has apparently taken that to hear in their “Intenational” event.
Mike might be able to pronounce that correctly.
Dotey OT says
Exec training at Flag, they probably spend a lot of time drilling handling of people as in the LA training. Working over cf, calling, regging, drilling of making something from nothing style of prospecting. Times are lean for the choich. Winter is coming, well, the inevitability of the wide open information age. They can’t hide it.
Brisbane finally bought an Ideal Org building last year for $6 million, I wonder how much longer it will be now until it opens. The tiny office building they have now is big enough, they are so delusional.
Does Scientology fix toasters?
Yes but the repair bill will be around $5,000.00
Oh, and back to the regges on the checklist I suppose after completion. Nah, I like my broken one. Matches my attitude about Scientology.

Chicago – wow they are doing street book sales again, interesting. That had been dead since the pandemic. I noticed the guy doing the meter stuff has his mask on his chin, probably will get in trouble for that.
Ed Dearborn????!!!!! He’s the former executive director of Orange County org and now being promoted as an FSM???!!! Weird.
Dallas sending people to Austin – definitely a thing. Every “ideal org” had an “alliance org” they are supposed to help get to “ideal.” Columbus also recruits for Chicago.
Recently heard that Chicago due to.open in a few months. Some staff members have been at Flag for 2 years getting training which includes FEBC. Wonder if they had to work part time because Chicago Org couldn’t pay for their berthing.
It is amazing how every issue from Hubbard needs to be studied but very little (maybe none) teaches anyone good management techniques.

Re: Event Menu? This is what they are promoting for Flag events now? Hand breaded chicken tenders?
That’s what a few fun Flag fundraising events will turn a Scientologist in Good Standing into: a fresh, juicy, hand-breaded chicken tender, covered in housemade honey mustard–just ripe for the picking.
Ok that’s funny. Lol
Koos Nolst Trenité says
Gaining the “self-determinism” to eliminate future problems
by “being a Scientologist:”
Submitting to L. Ron Hubbard’s malicious ideas, narratives, policies, and his highly destructive control – misdirecting, perverting, and crashing your purposes and innate morality,
creates LOTS of hugely unpleasant, future problems for anyone.
It looks like Brisbane put their youngest people in that first picture – it’s almost surprising they could come up with ten. From the second picture with more older people in it doesn’t look like there are a whole lot more members at the event; and in the poster on the wall they’ve only filled 43 of 50 spaces for “humanitarians”, suggesting to me that’s about where their active membership tops out.
And good point that even the FSMs aren’t opening missions – maybe they did decades ago, but as far as I know none have really been established in the US in the last 10 to 15 years (though maybe some mission packages have been sold, including Deep Ellum in Texas that appeared to be in someone’s live-work space). The people who promote the tired claims of there somehow being ways to “disseminate” apparently can’t do much except fleece the existing sheep themselves.

That new meter for sale for $4000 makes me vomit. I wonder what it cost to make it. $40?
Also, every time I see History of Man I think of my poor son carrying that with him when he was getting Dianetics auditing. I didn’t ask, because of course I would have been in trouble if I did, but I’m pretty sure he was given that book so it would help him dredge up his Whole Track. Makes me want to cry – AND VOMIT.
If I keep this up, I think I’m looking at a sure fire way to lose 5 lbs.

Re: your recent rant.
Mr. Muhammad. Sir.
I am so sorrrrrrrrry if my comm particle offended you in any way. I would never presume obesity on you in any way merely because you happen to be an African American female. Why, sir, we have never met as I have never been to Midtown Org and your Scientology activities seem to get you incarcerated numerous times. My, my. As you see, I am addressing you using the honorifics you requested even though, in my opinion, you don’t deserve them. I guess my “Yo, Shananay” was just trying to bond with members of the black community. That having been said, I unfortunately still feel that charging $4,000.00 for a $40.00 piece of quackery is outrageous. Someone must be profiting from it. I wonder who?

Rob Ager used say during long dying speeches to hurry up and die already. This reminded me of something I posted on my blog:
Changing the subject’s a standard tactic that’s taught at Toastmasters. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Toastmasters International, it’s a group that teaches the techniques of public speaking, which in practice means teaching dull and boring people to be even more tedious, dull, and boring. How do I know this? Well, my participation in Toastmasters was strongly recommended by the Chairman and the Treasurer of the Libertarian Party of Minnesota during my brief involvement with them. To make a long story short (too late), I was called upon to speak for two minutes on a subject that I knew nothing about. The usual technique for dealing with this situation was to either change the subject or make up something to say. This to me was the height of rudeness, Instead I stood up and said this:
Mr. President, fellow Toastmasters, and honored guest, I have absolutely nothing to say on this subject. Thank you.
And then I sat down. The Chairman and the Treasurer of the LP-MN continued to pester me about attending Toastmasters until I found and ran off copies of a short story, in STARLOG magazine of all places, that mocked the organization. I never heard a word from either of them on the subject after that.
