I once thought that. . .

    Well, it was, for him. With all the other shit he did, it was highly unlikely cigs were going to be what killed him. :eyeroll:

    That thought ran across my brain while composing my post. If not the cigs then what? Drug abuse? Alcohol abuse? Running his mind fucking processes on himself? I'm surprised he didn't die at a younger age.

    Oh No!

    Scientology helping people achieve their goals!

    Apologies in advance, I feel a rant coming on. LOL





    RECRUITER
    So, can you now see that your goals as an actor are
    just wog PTSness to the middle class?

    ACTOR SCIENTOLOGIST
    But when you people first got me into the Celebrity
    Centre, you told me that my acting goals were the
    most important thing in the world! In fact you told
    me Ron said that artists and celebrities
    are the only way to Clear the planet.

    RECRUITER
    That sounds like verbal data.

    ACTOR SCIENTOLOGIST
    But they showed me Ron's original handwritten advices.

    RECRUITER
    That sounds like a hidden data line.

    ACTOR SCIENTOLOGIST
    What about Tom Cruise?
    Why doesn't he join the Sea Org?

    RECRUITER
    Well, that's entirely different.
    Mr. Cruise is a movie star.

    ACTOR SCIENTOLOGIST
    So? I just starred in a feature film.
    It opened in theaters last week in fact!

    RECRUITER
    Yeah, I know all about that. It's a small
    budget independent film.

    ACTOR SCIENTOLOGIST
    So? A lot of indie films become huge
    commercial and critical successes.

    RECRUITER
    Well, I read the trades and your opening
    weekend box-office was total shit. Your
    movie totally bombed. So, are you going to
    remain in a group of downstat, failing, loser artists or
    are you going to join the Sea Org super-upstats?

    ACTOR SCIENTOLOGIST
    Hey, no disrespect, but didn't Hubbard's Battlefield
    Earth totally bomb at the box-office and get declared
    one of the worst 3 movies ever made?

    RECRUITER
    Where did you get that false data?

    ACTOR SCIENTOLOGIST
    From the same trade papers that you told me
    you read about my movie in.

    RECRUITER
    HEY! KNOCK OFF THE BACKFLASH!!!!!

    ACTOR SCIENTOLOGIST
    Wutt? You're not my senior, I'm not on staff.
    I can say whatever I want.

    RECRUITER
    (screaming)
    MAN, YOU ARE LUCKY YOU'RE NOT MY JUNIOR BECAUSE I'D
    TOTALLY FACE RIP YOU AND BUST YOUR DILETTANTE, THEETIE
    WEETIE, I-WANNA-BE-AN-ARTIST BULLSHIT! AND THEN I'D
    SEND YOUR IMPLANTED GOAL, COCKSUCKING OUT-ETHICS
    ASS TO THE RPF WHERE THEY WOULD WORK YOUR CI BANK
    TO DEATH UNTIL YOU BLEW THAT FUCKING DEGRADED ARTIST VALENCE!

    ACTOR SCIENTOLOGIST
    And now you expect me to sign a billion year
    contract to join the Sea Org?

    RECRUITER
    (flashes a big winning grin, per Recruiter TRs)
    Yes! It's really theta here and you can pursue all your
    creative and artist goals as an actor.

    My favorite was the inevitable display of cigarette butts stuck into half eaten stacks of pancakes, or maybe in a lump of oatmeal. Breakfast was crazy time in SO. Very lively as I recall, and record setting levels of second hand smoke!

    Smoking was OT because, um….Ron smoked.


    MOM
    When are you going to stop smoking? Don't
    you know it is going to kill you.

    SCIENTOLOGIST
    LOL. That's wrong! Ron said that the only
    way I can get cancer is if I don't smoke more!

    MOM
    Wuttt? That sounds crazy!

    SCIENTOLOGIST
    Mom, you are crazy.
    Ron is here to save the planet.
    He is mankind's greatest friend.

    MOM
    I really worry about you. Would you
    do EVERYTHING your "friend" does?

    SCIENTOLOGIST
    Absolutely! It's the road out of the
    76 trillion year old trap, Mom.

    MOM
    You are scaring me! What if your "friend"
    said to jump off a bridge, would you do that?

    SCIENTOLOGIST
    LOL. Don't worry Mom--Ron wouldn't say that.
    He says to stay on the Bridge.

    Terrifyingly spot-on. "Come on. Let's face it. You've been an artist many lifetimes before but you've never been a slave for mankind's greatest friend. Think about that until you change your mind about your selfish goals, won't you? Yes, I thought so."
     
  8. Idle Morgue

    Idle Morgue Gold Meritorious Patron

    Yes- that is totally it!!

    Notice Michelle Stafford quit 'Young and the Restless' and is on her OT 7 level. All that money she made will be now be bilked out of her. They will break her down until she has nothing and is nothing and then either joins staff or the Sea Org. It could take years (depending how much money she has).

    Her goal of being an actress has been seriously THWARTED! NO, it has been annihilated!! Just wait until she gets to the top of the Bridge and finds the dead end. She is going to be really pissed!!

    Yeah, the cult eats 'em up and spits 'em out. It's the COS (Cannibalism of Scientology). A couple examples might be illustrative:

    Enter KSW Exhibit: "….we rather have you dead than incapable." (L. Ron Hubbard).

    Enter Actor Exhibit: Isaac Hayes. Monumentally successful recording artist who made the frightfully bad decision to think that the cult cared about him, his career or his finances. Then he reached enormous success as voiceover talent on the runaway hit comedy "South Park"--which entertained and made people laugh worldwide. But, then they laughed at the cult and Hayes was forced to disconnect. He went broke and died shortly thereafter.

    Enter Actor Exhibit: Michael Roberts. Hugely successful tv actor in the '70s, enjoyed extraordinary success as a film actor including his role in the 1988 Oscar winning movie "Rain Man". After that the cult put him to work shilling for and coercing donations for the IAS and other cult front activities. Roberts acting career promptly came to a shuddering and devastating halt.


    [​IMG]

    I used to be a top actor.
    Now I am a cult pitchman.
    I sell eternity and statuses.
    Hey, it's still acting, isn't it?

    Yeah. I saw that all the time inside.

    When I think of scn I also think of Easter Island.

    I once thought the Easter Island statues were cool. Now I'm wtf.

    That was from all the people doing R1-5. They started out with one ashtray that had one cigarette butt in it. Then people started copying it and next thing you know you have a nasty mess! ;-)

    omg, yeah. When I got recruited back onto staff, my stipulation was that I still had time available for pursuing acting... I said how fucked up it was last time and didn't see how it was possible. I actually fell for the line that "Things are totally different now because the ED has done OT V since then." :duh:

    sop.

    What the thinking that went into a Thurs 2 crises. Short sighted mf'ers we were while thinking with words like billions.

    CI on Easter Island would be like building a boat out of the few remaining trees, somewhere secret, with the intention of getting out. That would be a high crime probably, despite the quality of the idea.

    I wonder why it would be "ok" to stop that. Does it just come down to food?

    I once thought what the last person on Easter Island thought.

    ...


    Ohhhh! So, it is not actually Scientologists, then, who were against acting. . .

    It's
    ALIENS from outer space who had C.I. on acting.

    Excellent! This is now really making sense to me!

    Your saying that ot's and aliens and acting and water all have something in common!!! Man....

    This type of life is hard to keep track of....I'm taking notes as fast as I can.

    Again, I've no idea what I'm talking about. This is my first life on this planet. You guy's are weird. But I like those things you call cats.

    Just like the chiropractor who sold her practice to join the SO in part because when she saw my husband and I leave she thought, "the enemy is has gotten to these two and the stakes are high.... I must join the SO"

    She'll get used until she's a disintegrating rag and when she finally realizes it she'll have no livelihood, no savings, nothing. This story plays out over and over and over.

    One of my best friends was one of the most sought after talents in Chicago. I am not going to mention what this person does because I don't want this searchable but, this person was, if you'll allow my terminology, in complete and total POWER in his/her field -- gave it all up to get on OT VII. This person is mega talented and who knows where it all would have gone. Now this person has to put it all back together again, no longer in the same prime of life without the promised "cause of matter, energy, space and time" advantage he/she traded it all in for.

    Scientology = Broken Dreams at least eventually, always.
