Check out the current (November 23 2009) issue of
"New Idea."

Scientology backlash

CRUISE IN CRISIS.


Marc Headley is interviewed. His new book "Blown for good"
is pictured.

Anons are pictured as well.

This is beyond the usual gossip about Tom and Katie.
This is a full on expose of the Scientology that
Miscavige wants to keep secret.

This problem isn`t going away.
The media are not afraid of scientology any more.

And people who have been ripped off for the last
59 years aren`t afraid any more.

Do the math....    =  The sun does set on Scientology .

Nearly finished.

I`ve almost finished reading "Blown for good."

What an amazing read.  I know a lot of the people Marc Headley
talks about.

This book describes what life was like up at Int base.
When on staff, one gets this PR image of Senior management.
You get this picture of super efficient sane people.
Yet you never actually meet any. You see the Int Management
team speak so eloquently at the events on DVD.

They look clean... They look competent. They appear to be
making inroads into suffering and oppression on planet earth.

In Blown for good one sees behind the scientology iron curtain.

The wackiest bunch of crack pots ever assembled.
What Marc survived was pure insanity.

And the worst offender ..... David Miscavige.
What a little Napoleon,  psychopath.

Just wait till he loses his grip on his effort to take
over the world.  All those he stood on are going to
be looking for blood.

I actually have no sympathy for the guy.
Even if you still think Hubbard was mans salvation,
you still can`t forgive Miscavige for what he has done.
He`s even the Tech`s worst squirrel.

The press are running pictures of him these days.
He won`t be able to hide anywhere.

Any scios reading this....
The best thing you can do for your dynamics right now
is to Google Scientology. 

Come on. Where is your confront ???

Yes it will make you feel a little queasy for a spell.
But you will recover. Thousands have already made the break.

Freedom awaits you...

Imagine what it will be like to do what YOU want to do.
Imagine being able to get paid for what you do
Imagine being able to provide for your families.
Imagine being able to have sex...without having to write
every detail of it down like a criminal.

Imagine not having to feel like a failure every moment
of your waking life.
Imagine  spending a day at the beach.
Imagine all the pressure to perform just disappearing.

Imagine being human again....

PM me if you need help.

              New Materials to be released - and new defections!


2010 has already proven to be a very active year in terms of people coming out of the woodwork to talk about their horrible experiences in Scientology.

It has just begun.

I can tell you that just from the sheer numbers of Scientologists that have been writing in about the BFG book, there are A LOT of people that have been waiting for the chance to break free from these guys and take their families with them.

I am betting that you will see more high profile defectors in the coming days, weeks and months, but that they will also do so publicly.

Someone told me that there was an article up somewhere about Tom Cruise and how he and Dave Miscavige have been palling around more and more. Well, it reminded me of how Dave Miscavige had all these new E-Meters made. New E-meters that scilons will have to pay $4,500 for. They will have to chuck out their old E-meters that Dave Miscavige forced them to buy just a few years back. Well, these new meters were made in 2004. They have been sitting in a warehouse in Los Angeles all this time and no one gets to use them in scilonville except for one person. Tom Cruise. In 2004, Dave Miscavige had Golden Era Productions take a shell of an old Mk VII Quantum E-meter and put the guts of a new Mk VIII Ultra E-Meter inside it. It looks like an old meter but has all of the new fancy pants electronics that Dave Miscavige will ultimately spin into the E-Meter that “LRH had designed years and years ago before the technology was available to produce such a thing.”

So the old meters are useless and the scilons will all have to buy new ones. But that did not stop Dave Miscavige from selling them to all scilons for the past 6 years.

Well, here is another reason why there will be mass defections. Dave Miscavige will systematically re-release EVERY SINGLE THING that exists in all of scilonville over the next few years. Each time he does so, another bunch of fence sitting scilons will make the leap. Here is a list of just a few of the things that have been being worked on for the last 10 years to get ready for a re-release:

1. OEC Volumes
2. Tech Volumes
3. Grades processes
4. E-Meters
5. More lectures
6. More books
7. LRH Tech Films
8. LRH Public films

Here is another big one. When LRH was about to die he had cash being brought to him in bankers boxes. The reason for this was that he did not trust Dave Miscavige and Scilon management. He knew that they were backstabbers and that’s why he wanted the cash brought to him. This story has been told many different ways by different people that were there at the time. Well as the story goes, LRH had all of the upper level OT materials there with him and the only people who knew where they were located were Annie & Pat Broker. Well, after Hubbard’s death, Dave Miscavige tricked Annie and Pat into handing over these materials under the false pretense that there was an FBI raid about to happen and they could not let those materials get into the hands of the FBI! David Miscavige got those materials and overthrew Pat and Annie once he had them.

Now, this is what has not broadly been told, LRH had more upper level materials that NO ONE HAD EVER SEEN except for him. NO ONE. He had these locked up in a special super duper safe that ONLY HE knew the combination for. Before his death, he had this safe placed in one of the secret underground vaults in the mountains and LRH said that when he came back in the next life, HE himself would open the safe and share the goodies in there.

Well, no doubt Tiny Fists has gotten that safe open by now and at some point will release some NEW, NEW, NEW, never released kool-aid recipe that will blow any scilon’s socks off no matter how many vats of the stuff they have choked down so far.

So besides all the stuff that the scilons have been being forced to buy all this time, David Miscavige has at least another 10 years worth of new things worked out to sell the scilons to keep up the real estate grabbing and luxury lifestyle he leads while the lowly scilons struggle to make credit card payments, foreclose on houses, and take their kids down to the local thrift store to get them some clothes.

Now while these scilons leave in droves and Tommy Davis keeps trying to tell everyone that David Miscavige is really not a bad guy, none of that will matter. It will be far too late.

Oh yeah, and a ton more people will sue them too.

Until next time…
BFG

                                  LRH birthday gift from BFG


For those of you who do not know, L Ron Hubbard's birthday is on March 13th.

Most people who have left the Sea Organization after 15 years probably would not have to even think twice about NOT getting him something for his birthday.

Well, I am not like other people!

Because I am such a nice guy (just ask me and I will tell you) I am pleased to announce that on March 13th, 2010 we will be releasing the paperback version of the BFG book!

It will cost $14.95 and will be available on Amazon.com. We have at least 3 major TV stations on board to run programs around the time of its release and we will do another media blitz to promote the book.

And for whatever it is worth and I hope this does not torpedo any planned stuff, but Ellen Degeneres had 4 copies of the BFG book picked up so she and others could read it. I have no idea where she heard about the book, but as she shoots her daytime TV show two blocks from my house, they came over and got some books for her. We'll see. Maybe something comes of it, maybe not. At least 4 more people will have a better idea of what happens behind the Iron Curtain of Scientology.

Also, some other major Hollywood players have read the book. From writers, to producers to actors. I have had great feedback from all of them and so far a lot of connections have been made and doing a movie is look more and more real at this point. When Oscar winners read a book and say it will make a great movie, that can get you pumped up.

If something big does go down, I will try and give some info, but for now that is about it.

So for now we have the paperback coming out March 13th and more goodies that you will hear about in the next few weeks.

Until next time...
BFG

 BFG - INT BASE ACCIDENTS THAT MIGHT HAVE NOT BEEN REPORTED
THESE ARE JUST THE ONES I COULD THINK OF IN ONE SITTING

by Blownforgood
http://ocmb.xenu.net/ocmb/viewtopic....2124f44#319244
-----------------------------------------

NOTE: Some passages below have been taken or summarized from the book – BLOWN FOR GOOD

SCIENTOLOGY & OSHA (NOT OSA)

There are many incidents that occurred at the Int Base that I am sure were not reported to OSHA. This is the regulatory agency that most companies or organizations that have certain activities taking place within the premises have to report up on and maintain certain safety standards so that people are not hurt performing such activities.
Some of the activities that go on at the Int Base that mandate such a regulation:
1. Automated Stamping equipment
2. Automated Print finishing machinery
3. CD stamping machinery
4. Film Lab chemical processing Laboratory
5. HVAC Engineering maintenance
6. HVAC metal work fabrication
7. Operation of Heavy Equipment (dozers, back hoes, earth movers etc.)
8. Automotive work (Int Base only)
9. Electrical High Voltage power line maintenance and installation
10. Chlorine treatment systems
11. Aeration sewage treatment systems
12. Grounds work
i. High power riding lawn mowers
ii. Edging equipment
iii. Water trucks
iv. Tree mulching equipment
v. Hydraulic Cherry pickers
13. Construction activities- including but not limited to:
a. Electric beam saws
b. Electric band saw
c. Chop saws
d. Metal Drilling
e. Electrician work
f. Plumbing
g. Arc welding
h. Gas torch welding

Anyone can see from this list there are a lot of activities that if performed in an unsafe manner could result in injury or death and often do all over the world each day. For that reason OSHA issues regulations and requirements for certain trades to follow to maintain a safe working environment. In my 15 years of working at the Int base I never saw one rule enforced or anyone train me on any rules pertaining to OSHA regulations. All the while, I am sure the Church has made sure that they have a perfect record when it comes to these things. I would remember when we would get an OSHA inspection at Gold; they take the OSHA person and would start in the areas that were no big deal while tons of people cleaned wood shavings out of table saws, emptied bags and bags of dust collector bins, move things into safe storage spots etc.

Here are some instances of accidents that have occurred at the Int base that are probably not on their list that has been reported to OSHA:

1. Gary Conley – fell 20 feet onto concrete while cleaning in garage (just after he was busted off post as IG MAA RTC) and shattered both ankles and feet. Was in wheelchair for many years and had more hardware inserted into his legs than the terminator 1, 2, or 3.

2. Uve Stuckenbrock – fell down water well and broke legs. Years later sent to PAC RPF after attempting to blow the Int Base. Later went onto to get multiple sclerosis and is possibly passed away now. Was still on PAC RPF as of 2 years ago in wheelchair with MS.

3. Mike Tomozavic. Cut off part of finger on table saw at 3AM. No was around and took him quite awhile to come out of shock and get medical attention.

4. Chuck Lemmer. Infection untreated over years resulted in chuck getting Elephantitis of the testicles. He was working in HEM making E-Meters and even though he had this infection he was still made to work at his job every day and it required that he sit. He got no special treatment whatsoever even though his balls were getting bigger and bigger each day. After several months, he was able to have surgeries and the fluids were drained and the infection handled. Ten years later he would die of Cancer that went untreated.

5. Matt Henderson – Fell from ceiling while cleaning garage and broke leg or multiple legs.


6. Paul Sarkany. Hit on head with 20 lb light that fell from Cine castle lighting grid.

7. Justin Miscavige. Crotch blown up. While shooting battle scene for a technical training film and working with pyrotechnics, a cork “mortar” was set off when he ran over it instead of AFTER he ran over it blowing chucks of cork into his face and crotch.

8. Entire Group of 20 people at once! – During a Sea Org Day competition, a tug of war contest turns nasty when the winning teams pulls so hard that the rope burnt all of the other team’s skin off their hands and required many staff get medical attention with the skin literally burnt off the inside of their fingers and hands.

9. Shannon Barnes. Same Sea Org day as above. Shannon drives a Jet Ski recklessly into concrete side of lake going 50 MPH destroying Jet Ski and almost killing himself and a passenger. After recovering and deciding that he was not good enough to be at Gold, drinks large bottle of bleach. Survives suicide attempt but it was confirmed that he was not good enough for Gold and he was sent to LA to work in PAC.

10. David Miscavige – broke leg while playing basketball! Last time he had a session was right before this in 1993. Has not been in session since.

11. David Miscavige. (THIS IS NOT A JOKE) Almost bitten on ass by swarm of thousands of red fire ants in a freakish event where they swarmed over the entire toilet in his bathroom during the night. He only discovered them at the last second before sitting down by the loud noise that they were making. (I REPEAT – NOT A JOKE - REALLY HAPPENED!!) Entire bathroom was ripped out and I guess ant proof toilet was installed.

12. David Miscavige. Almost run over by large dump truck backing up. A Grounds Dept dump truck driver (Agnese Bertolina Johnson) was backing up the large dump truck up when David Miscavige pulled up behind her on his motorcycle. As she could not see him, she continued to back up and almost crushed him between an electrical transformer and the back of the truck. He jumped off of the bike and ran around to the side of the truck and started yelling at her to stop and just missed knocking over the electrical transformer. She was “taken off the road” for this. A year later when she completed all of her extensive correction actions to get back on the road, she went home in her car that night and was never seen again.

13. David Miscavige. Almost speared to death at NEW YEARS EVENT 2000. At the start of the event David was told to stand in an exact position by the stage manager, John Thomas. This is where David would enter the stage after the opening flag procession. There were 30 girls that were flag twirlers and dancers. They all had 12 ft flags with sharp tips atop each. Behind the stage it is near pitch black with very few work lights on during the actual event. A second too soon, David Miscavige decided that he was NOT supposed to enter the stage from the spot he was told and started to move away to a different stage entry point. A fraction of a second later the flag twirlers would start exiting the stage and throwing, chucking and otherwise discarding quickly their flags into a pile at the exact spot where David Miscavige was standing. According to him (DM) he felt at least 2 flags graze his hair as he moved away from the spot. The day after the event John Thomas was assigned to the RPF. He would later get moved to the RPF in New York and years later when David Miscavige later had to go to New York to open the new renovated org there, John Thomas would be offloaded from the Sea Org so that there would be no chance that David Miscavige would be reminded of the fateful night years ago when he was almost killed by a bunch of high school girls in tights.


14. Charlie Rush. Nice Guy. In the Sea Org for 30 plus years. Constantly lifting heavy musician equipment over 30 years had taken its toll on him. He had such a bad case of hemorrhoids that went untreated for so long (due to no money for crew welfare) that the (completely unlicensed and untrained) Medical Liaison Officer, Cynthia Rathburn decided to take matters into her own hands and perform surgery on him to remove the lumps. After several unsuccessful attempts, she was removed from post and Charlie was sent to Los Angeles to be a dishwasher. I guess hemorrhoids are supposedly only local to desert areas?

15. Male staff member lost his finger while working on Dave Miscavige’s new building. Instead of using a ladder to climb down from installing some new equipment (safety and access equipment is often skimped on or just plain not used on some projects) this male staff member jumped down to a lower level structure. While on his way down his wedding ring was caught on a fixed metal object and sliced his ring finger clear off his hand. The staff member went into shock and was taken to the hospital some time later; the finger was not able to be reconnected to his hand. In this instance, you can cover up the paper trail or spin whatever story you want, this guy is missing a finger and that is that. His name is Robert Lemoine and he works in the computer programming and maintenance area of the Int Base. Robert has not been paid one single extra dime for sacrificing his finger for Dave Miscavige or the Sea Org. Make me want to give someone the finger.

16. Marc Morgan- After the electrical department serviced one of the high voltage pieces of machinery in the Manufacturing print shop; a wire was left loose and exposed. Marc accidentally touched the exposed wire and was shocked by the high voltage transformer within. He was immediately winded and fell to the ground in convulsions. After 15 minutes, he would regain proper breathing and be fine.


17. As there are too many to count, we will just get the put hand in the table saw down here. There are at least 30 instances where staff have been cutting wood and using their hands to push the wood through the table saw and voila, oops the hand is not mightier than the saw. The worst I know of was one former staff member that lost 2 fingers. One of them was partially able to be reconnected.

The Int Ranch (child prison camp) has its own bizarre accident stories that could be an entire other article, but we will list a few here to show the type of accidents that are common there.

18. A few kids were trying to connect a hitch type trailer to a large backhoe when they lost control of the trailer and dropped it. Well they dropped it on one of the kid’s feet. The kid screamed with pain and after a few minutes of screaming they went back to putting the trailer on the hitch. Later that night the kid that the trailer landed on was complaining of feeling sick and went to lay down. The next morning when we awoke, his foot was in a lot of pain. When one of the adults questioned him as to what happened, he explained and they decided that they should probably inspect his foot and as he had not taken of his boots since the incident the night before, now would be a good as any. Upon removal of the blood filled boot, they discovered that two of his toes had been mostly cut off and were simply floating in the front of his shoe with his swelled up foot. After spending a few days in the hospital they were able to re attach the toes, but they did remain disfigured and one was a bit shorter than the rest.

19. One of the teachers was performing some mechanic work on one the large school busses that was used to bring children and food back and forth between the Ranch and Golden Era Productions. This girl’s name was Jean Tomozavic. She was under the front of the bus working on the engine when a few kids started playing in the bus. They disengaged the brakes and put the bus into neutral and it rolled onto the adult were it stayed. After she started screaming the kids ran off for help and she was eventually pulled out from under the bus while several kids pushed the bus back off of her.

20. Children were encouraged to catch and kill live rattlesnakes as there was a $5 reward for any of them killed and turned in.

These are just a fraction of the “on the job” accidents. Well some accidents happen after the job. Like after you have been up for 4 days and you want to go home and take a shower or maybe even get a few hours of sleep. In the “old days,” you could drive home into Hemet and go to your berthing if you had a car or access to one. With so many staff not sleeping, I am sure that while very few could drive, the ones that did, were more prone to have an accident than most other people would think. Here are the car accidents that I can remember and jot down.

1. Danny Dunnigan. Major bike accident. “Rover” Security guard and all around nasty guy. After bike accident, no longer assigned to rover and assigned to Main Security booth.

2. Danny Dunnigan. While on security watch in the main booth after accident, left booth to confront a declared SP that drove up to the booth. Danny ends up punching out SP. SP sues the hell out of the church and wins settlement. Danny is assigned to Night Watch where…

3. Danny Dunnigan. While on Night watch Security rounds, mistook the 5 foot high loading dock at the Cine Castle for the road and drove the Black Security Nissan SUV off loading dock destroying the front suspension and wheels.

4. Danny Dunnigan – (Story fully covered in book that will make your little “SP punch out” story look like a day off! To be filled in at a later date unless court proceedings direct otherwise.) Heads up to OSA people, ask Danny about this now as it is going to cost you later on.

5. Jorge Avila – Major bike accident. Drove into ditch while on Security patrol. Destroyed bike, Broke collar bone and arm. Busted out of Security as a result and sent to work in the Sets area.

6. Jorge Avila - Major van accident. After being busted from Security and assigned to the Sets construction area, was put in charge of transporting crew to and from Sound Stage in San Bernardino called Norton Air Force Base. While driving on no sleep caused him to mis an exit, he woke up and tried to get off at the last minute. Ended up rolling a Ford – Econoline 15 passenger van 4 times and breaking every window and crushing any metal that existed on van. Even the cigarette lighter was damaged! Went into a coma and when finally came out was told that he was “taken off the road.” Later offloaded from Sea Org.

7. Megan Eisenman – Drove through red light because was late for post one morning and got T-boned by a dually truck hauling a horse trailer. Was in Coma. Totaled org car and was ordered never to drive again until through OT5 and long correction program.

8. Russ Bellin – Totaled CST Hummer.

9. Paul Sarkany (Shark) – Lost control of Camera Truck (3000lbs overloaded) after tire blowout and did a 720 degree spin out on 60 freeway. No one was hurt. Heater in truck never did work the same after that though.

10. Ted Karboski – While driving Cine Grip Truck, crappy weld on electrical generator hitch broke and generator drove off freeway by itself and landed in someone’s back yard.

11. Ro Ann Horwich (L. Ron Hubbard’s Granddaughter) – Rolled vehicle and totaled it.

12. Darius Wilhere – Crashed motorcycle on side of road in Hemet when fell asleep while driving home on highway. Was badly injured and picked up by total stranger who saw the bike on side of road with him passed out next to it.

13. After attempting or claiming to attempt to commit suicide, Darius would then end up offloaded from Gold and eventually end up in CLO LATAM where he would get in another car accident, be dead for several minutes and then get revived and sustain permanent neck and spine damage. After he was suspected to have been in communication with an ex-Base staff member, he was then sent to CLO Africa.

14. Sandi Wilhere – Car accident – near death. Recovered but now in PAC with MS.

15. Danny Barram – Car accident. Vehicle was totaled. He was not at fault, but somehow managed to contact an attorney and won a huge settlement that was kept from the Gold Execs. When execs caught on and noticed the his new vehicle and recent purchases, he was publicly berated and offloaded from the Sea Org and made to divorce his super smoking hot wife!

16. Joe Harrison – Drove down highway and kickstand supposedly fell down while he was driving, He crashed into a tree and was killed instantly.

17. Nathan Story – drove through a road barricade while on his motorcycle and badly injured both hands.

Anyone who can remember more accidents or add to the list of on the job incidents, be my guest.

I am sure John Peeler can add some of these as that was what he dealt with for years. People who had accidents were PTS and then they went to see him.

Until next time…

Twin A (Maureen Bolstad ) remembers


It always amazed me how people who had just been demoted, and in a poor emotional state, got assigned to heavy MEST WORK as some kind of therapy. Some of them so introverted over it, or guilty or whatever, they would ignore safety issues.

Here are some stories to add to BFG's list, and BFG can put these in his book, your great memory will be enhanced by us others with good memories!

Kevin True, busted from RTC got assigned to do carpentry work, he cut off two of his fingers. Don't know if they got sewed back on or not. Mid 80's.

John Devries, around 2000 got busted and assigned to MEST WORK and he fell off of a roof and broke his leg. Demoted to PAC.

Judy Ruiz in early 90's had a lump in her breast area. She was too busy at work to even go see the MLO and thought it was 'nothing'. It grew and spread and by the time Judy went to the MLO, it was too late and it was inoperable, cancer had spread into liver and beyond. She died of cancer that could have been handled if not left to go for so long. Note: Women at the Gold base did not get yearly check ups.

Greg Brown, in 1998 died of cancer. He had been complaining for many months about intestinal pains and was not given adequate care. He was on the RPF when he passed out from a tumor the size of a baseball. We on the RPF were told that it had somehow mystically "grown overnight" and was because his co-auditor had screwed up his Dianetics auditing addressing pains in his stomach that the tumor had grown so large. But I knew that Greg had been complaining of health problems for a year. By the time Greg was rushed to the hospital and given surgery and chemo, it was too late.

Lindsey Hughes, just new on the Int RPF, in 1997, purposefully walked right into a thicket of poison Oak. She was retrieving some tool or item that was part of a project that had fallen into the thicket. As she was walking out of the poison oak thicket, she proudly claimed, "I'm a CLEAR and I'm immune to poison Oak!." For the next week, she was extremely ill with a bad rash all over her body.

While I was doing carpentry work on the Int RPF, I had someone accidently shoot a staple into my thumb with a pneumatic staple gun. I had to use my swiss army knife to get the staple fragment out and was not allowed to see the MLO about it. My hand was swollen off and on for a weeks.

Also on the Int RPF I was hit in the back by a 2X4 by Tom Woodruff who was using the table saw to rip the 2X4 down to size. It was over 8 feet long and the table saw was right next to another work station that only allowed about 8 feet of clearance. Tom didn't look behind him when he pulled back the2X4 to start ripping it. He jammed it into the middle of my back and I got the wind knocked out of me and then felt nauseated and dizzy for a little while. I was not allowed to see the MLO. But I did get allowed to leave the decks early and use ice packs and rest.

There was another kid who totalled a van in late 1997. He'd been driving on no sleep. He fell asleep. He felt so guilty afterwards, he was put onto the Introspection Rundown and then offloaded. I can't recall his name. He was not in Gold that long. Dark hair, young --slightly overweight.

Megan Eisenman, in 1993, during the filming of TR6 film tore a muscle in her leg (or maybe even broke it, I can't remember) doing an acrobatic dance move, she had been cast as one of the dolls that came alive at night. I think she was dancing with Kenny Davies who was cast as a dancing doll too. He was a cowboy and she was a ballerina. Neither of them were trained as dancers. She was taken to the hospital and got treated. She was allowed to get physical therapy, but I think I recall that she had difficulty getting off work to do it and/or getting a ride to the physical therapist.

A CC actor came out to Gold to film a Dianetics film in 1987. He broke his leg trying to do a football accident stunt scene. Oh, his name was Gary Emhoff. I think Gold did pay for his medical bills. And Gold made an effort to hire pro stunt people for stunts after that, tho did not always pull through when it came to using staff.

Roxanne Whittington, around 1991, nearly choked on a piece of chicken. We were in Los Angeles on location and she was doing the food services. She had just been yelled and screamed at by some of the crew for not bringing something they liked to eat. She had very little time to eat her own lunch and she swollowed her food too quickly, a piece of chicken jammed in her throat. She started waving her arms around hysterically and none of the crew near her even noticed. None of us had had any sleep the night before. A pro actor named Todd noticed from a distance, of over 20' away and he sprinted across the set area,jumped over the food table, pushed some other zombie staff out of the way and gave her the Heimlich maneuver --- all during the time it took for me to think through my sleep deprived haze,"Hey I wonder why Roxanne is turning blue,waving her arms around and banging on the table?" So, this pro (not Scn) actor saved Roxannes life. Guess what happened next? Todd demanded a couple of things, he wanted 1) that the crew get enough sleep and 2) that he get paid on time for his work. Neither of which happened. I mean this guy saved a staff members life and Gold didn't pay him. So Todd refused to do the final scene in the movie with Katie Mitchell (The film was Problem of LIfe) until he got paid. Instead of paying him and apologizng for being late, Mike Rinder went to go "handle him" because paying him would somehow "reward" his behavior???? Mike Rinder somehow handled him and he showed up for the last scene of the movie.

In 1991, my then husband, Bruce Bolstad came home from doing some Estates MEST work project and his hands and upper forearms were covered with sores and bleeding. He was in a great deal of pain. He had been told to simply soak his hands in vinegar. He screamed when he put his hands in the vinegar, and Bruce was one of those tough guys who didn't complain about stuff. The next night, same thing. I finally said, "What the F___ is going on?" and he replied that he was mixing concrete and mortar for some brick laying project and he wasn't given any gloves. His hands were chemically burned from the lime. I don't know why he was not taken to the hospital. He was in pain for weeks, maybe even a month.

In 1993, joe Caneen was in the hospital with a crushed foot. Don't know what happened. I think he fell out of a tree. He was the Trees In Charge. Maybe it was before they had harnesses and he was climbing a tree without it?


Around mid 1996, Jeff Kretz showed up at the OGH area to do MEST WORK, on his way to being sent to the RPF. He accidentally drove a pick (he was picking and shoveling) into someone else's hand. I don't remember who it was. Was it Pablo?

Actually, there are more stories, I just have run out of time to type them out. BFG is right about the OSHA rules not being followed. I have since worked in a proper carpentry shop, where there are safety lines around the equipment, there are signs about being well rested when using equipment, there is a first aid kit stuck to the wall and the address to the nearest hospital in case of emergency. There are dust masks and eye goggles and not slip surfaces near the work areas. I've seen professional roof workers and they have harnesses to keep them from falling off the roof. If a worker gets a staple in their finger, they aren't expected to dig it out themselves with a swiss army knife after it's been left to fester and get infected.

There were times when I did get the care I needed after an incident, in 1984,I'd stepped on a nail once and I got my foot soaked and got a tetanus shot that same day. That was cool. It would have been nice if someone had told me that there were nails protruding through the floor of the work area I'd been assigned to walk on before I stepped on the nail to begin with...or I had proper work boots for being assigned to work in a construction zone.

Amazing!  I didn't see any of that on the recruitment poster when I signed my billion year contract!

It was interesting for me to read these accidents at the top.
The girl Agnasia who nearly backed a dump truck into Miscavige was my
junior for a while. I taught her well.
Also Chuck Lemmar, the guy who had elephantiasis of the testicles was
the guy I was traded, from Gold, to Flag for.
So I went to sunny Florida and had intermittent elephantiasis of
the penis, and he went uplines and got permanent swollen testies.

Sad to learn he has since died of cancer. Still ...
If it gets you out of the cult ....!!!

          Article from Fort Liberty

                          BLOWN FOR GOOD


I don’t normally write about Scientology.  My general feeling is that people who are weak and stupid enough to get involved with Scientology get what they deserve and deserve what they get.

Reading an interview with Marc Headley at Wikinews reminded me of one important exception to that rule. Marc was sucked into Scientology at the tender age of seven when his mother joined the organization.  He never had a real chance to know another life.  As an employee of the Church of Scientology for fifteen years, he wasn’t even able to escape by going to work at a “normal” job.

Marc finally escaped in 2005 and has now published a book about life inside Scientology’s world headquarters, or “Gold Base.”  As a highly trusted employee, Marc saw a lot of disturbing things which are hidden from normal church members.

The interview itself is a good read.  You can buy Marc’s book at BlownForGood.com or at Amazon.com.  The book is self-published and I have to give Marc a lot of credit for making that work.

Marc is a very down-to-earth guy.  In that way, he’s not far different from most other I.T. guys that I know. Marc’s viewpoint is remarkably non-religious and he really focuses more upon the violations of employment law and human rights abuses within the organization.

Blown For Good has received excellent reviews for accuracy from many ex-Scientologists.  It’s also received a lot of complaints about grammar and editing.  I’m not very interested in grammar and editing, but I am very interested in the truth.

From what I am reading, it seems very clear that the Church of Scientology is actively suppressing the liberty of both church employees and church members.  In our day and age, we normally expect that sort of bad behavior to only come from governments — at least outside of the Muslim world.  Western religions have largely been “civilized” so as to be mostly harmless.  It appears that Scientology, one of the worlds youngest religions, needs a bit of civilizing.
