What, Tommy Davis's divorce not worthy of a thread?

    Scientology never understood what is required of a great spokesperson.

    Hubbard had no idea. He thought HE was the Ideal spokesperson. But in interviews, he came across as a manipulative liar. His blinking, gulping, affectations and tells were literally littered across the landscape. He was a very bad liar, especially when cornered. RATING: POOR! COMES ACROSS AS A HUSTLING CON MAN

    Miscavige bombed too. One interview (Nightline) and he threw in the towel and never came out for a second round. And he didn't know how to PICK a spokesperson either. Heber Jentzch devolved too often into wildly overblown buffoonery and histrionics. He couldn't find a "valence" that worked, vacillating instead between the pious religious gravitas and laughable clownery. RATING: POOR! COMES ACROSS AS A HUCKSTER WHO THINKS THE AUDIENCE IS STUPID.

    How about Tommy Davis? LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL Condescension & Clownery taken to an all new level of cringe. He was robotically putrid and sleazy to boot.

    What Scientology always needed was an lovable, avuncular type (think Jimmy Stewart in ITS A WONDERFUL LIFE, or Tom Hanks. Or, Morgan Freeman.....). If they couldn't come up with "lovable" at least they could have come up with "zen serene", connoting an individual who has "made it" and exudes joy (think Dalai Lama). But they couldn't do any of those things, so instead they came up with a joyless, neurotic liar-- Blinky Yingling.

    How could the cult not know something this simple? How could the "able" not be able enough to know that if people mistrust/hate your spokesperson, they mistrust/hate you?

    REASON: Because this cult is a freaking disaster of stupidinous magnitude!

    REASON BEHIND THE REASON: Because Scientologists believe themselves to be far superior to homo sapiens. And after that, the ugly condescension always shows its ugly face. People can see that. And those who do not see it can feel it. And those who do not feel it are not worth worrying about because they are already duped, lock-stepping zombie Scientologists. LOL

    If tasked, I could do a casting call and come up with a lovable spokesperson in 6-7 weeks. The cult has failed to do that even once in 6-7 decades!!!!

    CONCLUSION: Scientologists don't know how to know. They don't even know that they don't know. You know?

    Talking about Cult of Scientology Spokesman.....what about that Lawyer they had as a spokesman back in the late 80's.

    What was his name? Cooley or something with a "C"....?

    Or was he used more to whip up the crowds?

    Just thought I'd mention him.

    Was he in the Cult? I don't think so....But if not, why did he take on that job, to address Cult members?

    Anyone know what happened to him?

    ANSWER: Some time ago, Earle Cooley ran into a medical issue. However, quite fortunately, he was able to rise above and shed that encumbrance. He is currently still working (incommunicado) on behalf of the COS and its parishioners at a remote, interruption-free location, doing advanced research.

    In the Co$ there is no situation that money can't buy a person out of - ever !

    Tommy can have mommie buy him out of trouble & that ends that.

    Money is the juice in scn.

    from wiki

    Scientology's epic contribution to modernizing 21st century religion is in its streamlining of indulgences--by eliminating the complex concept of awards in the afterlife.

    Scientology's major discovery was that all matters of spiritual "exchange" could be fully resolved in the temporal (MEST) world, here and now, by simply handing devout and delighted donors a very large and shiny bowling trophy.

    Earl Cooley was the COS junk yard dog Lawyer during the 80s. During the Wollersheim trials, and I think, the Portland Crusade.
    I was in the Courtroom one day when Cooley fell on the floor in an apoplectic fit. He was all ruddy show. Maximum sleaze.
    He was not a scn'ist. He was a douchbag lawyer, abusing the Courts for the big $$$.
    He died.

    Contrast today's staged galas to the photo below of the rock group The People.

    Gone are the simpler days when you could waltz down to AOLA in your casual wear,
    or even a robe as the one fellow, and be enthusiastically validated by the AO staff,
    all of whom are dressed in their Captain Bill Robertson space opera attire.

    How did this emerging science go so wrong over the decades and turn its back on
    its longstanding heritage?

    LOL, perfect!


    STEP #1
    Don't forget to put the little .45 insert discs in
    so you can play THE PEOPLE'S new single !


    STEP #2:
    Go in your room, so your parents don't
    complain about the noise. Close door.

    STEP #3
    Ask yourself: "WHAT WOULD JIMI DO?
    Then drop it.


    STEP # 4
    Play tune. Trip out.



    STEP #5
    The acid is really kicking in now. What to do?
    (advanced instructions)
    Play this. . .


    I don't know why but i still love that
    reversed, reverb, fuzz-tone lead track
    as much now
    as I did back in '67 . LOL

    I agree....he sure doesn't look the same.

    I would imagine he lives a fairly indulgent lifestyle....which might age one?

    MONEY is Scientology's BLOOD!

    Scientology will KILL for money - it will stop at nothing to get it either.

    It destroys its own members in the name of what.... MONEY - so the leader, David Miscavige, can live his luxurious lifestyle- playing his evil little game of destroying and ruining people and HIDING behind the religious cloak.

    What a game to play - how awful really - when you think about it.

    Karma is going to kick his tiny little ass!

    Karma is kicking Tommy Davis' ASS right now - he is a confused mess and I hope he looks outside the curtain and discovers the truth - that he was in a cult and was lied to.

    Then hopefully he will kick some ass and join Leah Remini in exposing this evil cult.

    I seem to recall reading that they lived in Austin, TX but maybe they moved?

    [h=3]What is community property?[/h] Texas law defines community property as all of the property that either spouse acquires during the marriage, except separate property. Separate property is anything one spouse owned prior to marriage, property inherited by only one spouse, property received as a gift by only one spouse, and recoveries for personal injuries sustained by only one spouse, except for the portion of the award intended to compensate for lost earnings during the marriage.
    All property is presumed to be community property, unless and until the party claiming that it is separate property can prove it by a preponderance of the evidence.

    Tommy's been switching jobs frequently enough so I don't know where they're at now. I found a thread suggesting that they were back in California as of 2014, and one of the posts (from 5th November 2014) had something quite relevant to this thread about their divorce:

    Just found a post from Tony O confirming Tommy Davis moved to California back in 2014:

    Some interesting things in that post by Tony O as well as this one:

    Tommy Davis was apparently lying to some of the people he was working with telling them he renounced Scientology while actually on a mission from Miscavige attempting to bring billionaire James Packer back into the fold.
