Well thank you so much Murray for a wonderful video and update thingy-thing: Also thankful for your use of some pleasant music, for some reason I now want to go boating
From all that I have read over the years on the cult's 'Missions', it does seem like just another way to get the CoS' sunk in a little deeper into the unwary participant's wallets and, fail or not, what ever monies are generated, as a matter of course, are funneled into the coffers O' Davey, never to be seen again. Also as a matter of course is that no matter what debts are incurred by the mission-holders, they, and whom-ever was unfortunate to get muddled up with them, are entirely to blame for 'not bringing it in' not matter the circumstances, not a dime of care/help will ever, from what I've come to understand, ever flow back down their stream of muck and corruption. It is like selling franchises to a really horrid restaurant, good luck on any support if things go sideways.
IMHO it is all part & parcel of another twisted aspect of LRon's long-con, hey, it doesn't cost the cult but a few pennies now-and-then, but the returns are fantastic, especially if the 'parishioners' funnel well-heeled suckers into grinders like Flag or some such, where the established Hubbard mechanization will gladly take over the milking machinery and thereby eliminated any middle-men's possibilities of financial gain from that particular source.
It seems ta me all so very, very sad.
I so royally miss our dear departed Denise B. who was so fabulous at peeling rotted onions such as this tentacle-o-scientology, not many old-timers had so much knowledge of how Hubbard's slippery slope functioned, especially how the cult has managed to evade closer scrutiny ~
And I miss Purple too, who hasn't haunted these parts for a while. *sigh*
Nm, me is blabbering on a fine sunny day, I go now.
to one and all!
