    Here's some other good news hidden in the comments section of the Bunker:

    Uh-oh! I think Tony O may lose some fans who are extreme righties/neo-connies. According to that piece while in Arizona Tony exposed the corruption of the famous Maricopa County Sheriff Department under Joe Arpaio, an extreme, far-out, rightwing poster boy if there ever was one.

    He actually used to force county jail inmates to watch Newt Gingrich speeches back in the 90s. I think Rush Limbaugh gets wood every time he talks about Sheriff Joe's latest ploys to shred the Bill of Rights, er, I mean fight crime.

    Extreme Righties....what to do, what to do.....:duh: :melodramatic:


    :lol:

    I am very pleased that Tony has a new gig

    for I imagine that the Bunker barely pays the bills- however I do wonder about the Bunker- I see this as a loss-but perhaps Tony will have a wider audience.

    If he loses any he's still going to have a net gain of MILLIONS. :happydance:

    Look at the current stats from Alexa:





    By the way, here's the current stats for Scientology.org


    That look's like a long term Danger trend, does it not? :unsure:
    (or perhaps, Non-Existence)

    Although this article I did find rather humorous and made me smile thinking that "our" Tony Ortega would be at the helm of a group of correspondents that could write such a fine piece in the hothouse of religious insanity that is America.

    I'm one of your so-called " extreme righties "... and I like Tony O.

    I seriously doubt the zealots on either political side are "right" about much of anything, but, they could change places & not miss a breath.


    What strikes me odd is painting an entire group - left or right - only by the antics of the zealots - sort of reminds me of something.......

    I'm just having fun mostly. I agree with your last two paragraphs. I did not paint all conservatives as being zealots. I went out of my way to say "extreme" for that reason.

    BTW I used to be an extreme right winger....a zealot. I'm now what Rush calls a "spineless moderate". Lol.....

    But what the fuck does he know?

    I too am curious as to how he pays the bills.

    Nah, Tony O is a man of integrity . . . he ain't gonna drop the crime on humanity and fraud posing as a church known as Scientology . . . :no:

    He now has a bigger, better gun to shoot with.

    He may not be shooting as often, and there may not be as much "chatter" as those who live for chatter would like . . . but Tony O has integrity to a mission and that is the exposure of the full insanity of the cultiness of the cult and the bringing about of its demise.

    And I say: more power to Tony O!!!

    I would really, really miss my daily fix of The Bunker, though. I don't know how I ever lived without it.
