Scientology is only going to cause great harm to the community – Push them OUT of Guelph!

The cherch of scientology is already in the process of moving to guelph, fucking off out of toronto because of the deadness and deadbeat (lack of stats on thursdays @ 2pm SHARP), however we cannot let them take over the city or negatively impact/affect the community of people there. We don’t want a clearwater happening in a beautiful city in ontario!

So many people are vulnerable to this dangerous, misleading, misinforming, deceptive, lying and insidious cult; youth, senior citizens, anyone suffering from a mental illness/impairment (that is often invisible unless acting out), addictions to street drugs or narcotics such as opiates, or alcohol of any kind/strength.

The “free stress/capacity tests” are the bait and switch thing, and they are often meant to make people feel fucking horrible about themselves, such if somebody was suffering from depression or has emotional issues with a bad relationship’ this could drive them right to suicide! That is the LAST thing anyone needs to be told they are a terrible/horrible/bad person.

We need to also educate the people about scientology’s dozens of front groups! ABLE, Applied scholastics, Youth/united for human rights international, drug-free marshals/citizens for a drug-free world, CCHR (citizens commission on human rights), the way to happiness, narconon! The list goes on. These make zero mention of scientology at all!

All in all, the cult of scientology needs to be ejected from guelph, and proactive educating of the public would be the only way to ensure they stay out. These parasites will go to no end to try and recruit people. They want to rid your of critical thinking skills, job/employment, education, social skills, communication skills and anything you were taught in school! Nobody wants to be deprived of that. Nobody needs disconnection to break up their family and loved ones.

Sincerely, a very concerned citizen, who supports the city of guelph to get scientology OUT!

The Real Costs of Joining the Church of Scientology | Sapling.com

Please note that this article was taken down after the website owners/company was threatened by the sinister, insidious, law-breaking, psychological abusive CULT of Scientology, of a huge lawsuit. Therefore it has been mirrored. Too bad, ‘church’, you can’t erase what was posted to the internet.

Suing me would prove my point, including millions more. The tekch doesn’t work, OT powers don’t exist, or I wouldn’t have typed this.

“Most of us were a little taken aback when Tom Cruise jumped on the couch on The Oprah Winfrey Show over his love for then new girlfriend, Katie Holmes. We knew he was a Scientologist, but because of the mystery surrounding the religion, we didn’t know whether any of his behavior had to do with Scientology or if he was just a bit off (don’t forget that argument with Matt Lauer about psychiatry).But the secrets of this mysterious “religion,” with celebrities like Cruise and John Travolta as the unofficial spokesmen, have been revealed over time.

First, there was a South Park episode that detailed parts of Scientology’s doctrine in 2005. It was shocking for Non-Scientologists to learn the doctrine that only Scientologists of the highest levels are privy to. This is what the big secret was? Something that could be out of a sci-fi novel? The gist is: Frozen galactic Lord Xenu sent other frozen aliens to earth 75 million years ago and put them in volcanoes. These volcanoes then exploded and now these souls float around to cling to us and cause us pain and problems in our current lives. Scientology’s aim would be to rid us of those once frozen aliens so we could become “clear.”

Which brings us to 2015 and the award winning documentary Going Clear (based on a book of the same name) that completely shredded the veil that separated the general public from the secrets of Scientology. Former members and experts –like The New Yorker writer and author of the book Going Clear, Lawrence Wright – revealed everything from the full doctrine, to disconnection (a form of shunning), to auditing, to billion year contracts minors can sign, to “the hole” as a form of punishment (it’s even worse than it sounds), and other abuses.

But this past year, it would be Leah Remini, a former Scientologist, who would focus specifically on the abuses Scientology has committed in Scientology and the Aftermath, as well as focusing on the mindset of people in the religion and why they do not leave when abused. Just this week, the show was renewed by A&E for a second season, undoubtedly making some parts of Hollywood very unhappy.

Whether Scientology is a religion or a cult is debatable (and people do debate it). But one thing that differentiates it from other religions is the cost. You must pay to “move up the bridge.” Scientology also makes certain promises at each level, motivating people to pay to move up “the bridge” and even pressuring people to pay to “to help save the planet.” So, what does it cost if you aren’t a celebrity but want to be a Scientologist? And what do you get for your money?

Remini has claimed she has spent millions of dollars, but that the average person pays over a quarter of a million dollars in their lifetime (as well as spending hours each day studying their teachings).

The books

There are twelve basic books a Scientologist needs to buy. These cost about $4,000. But there is a catch. Every time there is an update to the books (as in oh, we missed this part of L. Ron Hubbard’s writings last time but now it’s fixed), a Scientologist needs to buy a new set. Apparently, this happens quite often. There is also pressure to buy sets to donate to libraries as well as to buy CDs and lectures from the now deceased founder’s, L. Ron Hubbard, teachings.

Scientology 101

The most basic level courses can cost as little as $15 to $35. Remini says these courses are used to hook people so that eventually they will pay a much steeper price to reach higher levels in the religion. Frankly, it’s good business sense not to ask for much at the beginning. It’s only once people are fully entrenched that the bills start to mount.

The Bridge

In order to become “clear” and reach complete spiritual enlightenment, one has to climb “The Bridge to Total Freedom.” These courses are about $650 each but there are a lot of them and they can also require hours of studying. Some courses, Remini claims, require studying from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m seven days a week.

The upside? Once you get to the higher levels like Remini did, you’re promised that you can move things with your mind or even cure cancer. Former members, like Remini, claim they never experienced such this, though.

Auditing

The simplest way to explain auditing is to call it therapy, but that is not wholly accurate. It involves a machine called the E-Meter (which is technically one-half of a lie detector test) that Scientologists believe has the capability to measure the mass of thoughts.

The auditor is able to read the E-Meter to tell if an individual is “clear” or not. The church charges around $800 per hour and auditing is a necessary part of moving up The Bridge. You can’t skip it.

The church may also require you to do extra auditing if they think you are committing “transgressions.” Many types of religions require you to make amends or confess if you have erred or sinned. But they don’t charge you $800 an hour to do it. By the way, it may be $800 an hour but a minimum session is two and a half hours long.

And that’s just the bare bones. Members are pressured to give to certain Scientology causes and to constantly continue up the bridge. Once you reach the highest levels, you would still require auditing.

Since the Church of Scientology has tax exemption status – hence their do or die rally against the IRS in the 1993 – their coffers are full AF of cash they don’t have to pay taxes on. If you think it’s messed up, then don’t miss Leah Remini’s next season of Scientology and the Aftermath. According to Remini and the victims on the show, the money is the smallest abuse this “church” commits against its followers.”


Stalled/seemingly broken space heater, or slow-spinning desk/standing/box fan? Here’s a solution!

Don’t just toss it out/recycle it yet, try these simple steps instead! Chances are it just needs some tender loving care (TLC). If the blades spin really slowly, or the motor is making a loud buzz or humming, that is a definite sign that it needs maintenance in order for it to provide you with a very long service life, both in the sweltering hot summer, and freezing cold winter.

You will need the following tools and supplies:

  • Screwdrivers (most common being a Phillips. Flat/slot for the tabs)
  • Lubricant (3-in-1*, transformer or mineral/baby oil)
  • Eyedropper or syringe (a long-nose will be easiest, if the rear is behind plastic)
  • Patience

Steps (space heater):

  1. Turn off and unplug the unit.
  2. Remove all of the screws holding the enclosure together.
  3. Use the eyedropper or syringe to pickup some lubricant. (SKIP to 4 if using 3-in-1 oil)
  4. Put some lubricant on the ring just behind the blades. You will need 10-20 drops.
  5. Now give them a quick spin by hand to the right and left, including a gentle wiggle back and forth. This will free up the rotor spine if stiff. They should now spin easily without stopping.
  6. Now add 10-20 drops (or a stream) of lubricant to the rear of the motor. If it’s behind the plastic, the long-nose syringe or eyedropper will come in handy, or the stem of the 3-in-1 oil canister.
  7. Give it yet another quick spin in both directions (to the right and left).
  8. Now re-assemble the enclosure by putting the screws back in.
  9. Plug in and power it on using the FAN ONLY setting. If it spins/whirs up to speed, you are good to go.

Steps (standing/desk fan):

  1. Turn off and unplug the fan.
  2. Remove the front cage, most have slide-locks.
  3. Loosen the center fastener (left to loosen, right to tighten, or left if reverse-threaded) and remove the blades. You may have to tug them loose.
  4. Remove the rear spacer by turning it left (if reverse-threaded, turn it right)
  5. If there are screws holding the rear cage to the base, unscrew them. If not SKIP this step.
  6. Remove the rear cage.
  7. Carefully unscrew and remove the button for the oscillation switch.
  8. Remove the power/speed adjuster switch. SKIP this if it’s a desk fan.
  9. Remove the screws to the enclosure. If it has tabs holding it closed, carefully use a flat-heat screwdriver to release them.
  10. Remove the enclosure. It should come off easily.
  11. Use the eyedropper or syringe to pickup some lubricant. (SKIP to if using 3-in-1 oil)
  12. Add 10-20 drops, or a stream, of lubricant to the front and rear parts of the motor, then re-attach the blades and give them a spin in both directions by hand. They should spin freely. Now remove the blades.
  13. Begin to re-assemble the enclosure, snapping any tabs in place, and replacing any screws.
  14. Replace the oscillation switch and screw it back on.
  15. If it’s a standing model, reattach the power/speed adjusting switch.
  16. Reattach the rear cage (and screws if applicable), and screw on the rear spacer.
  17. Attach the blades back on the spine, and tighten the fastener.
  18. Plug it in, power it on using low, medium and high settings. If the blades spin at the proper speed, turn it off and replace the front cage, latching it on.

Steps (box fan):

  1. Turn off and unplug the fan.
  2. Remove the screws holding the rear cage on, then remove the cage.
  3. Add 10-20 drops of lubricant to the rear of the motor, and to the front spine/ring just behind the blades.
  4. Spin the blades right and left, giggle them forwards and backwards. This frees up anything that might be jamming them, pushing the lubricant further inside.
  5. Replace the rear cage, then replace the screws.
  6. Plug in and turn on the fan, set it to HIGH, then medium/low. If the blades spin/whir up normally, it’s good to go.

I hope this saved you from discarding an otherwise functioning standing/desk fan or space heater. If it still didn’t work even after lubricating it, then it’s best to bring it to your local electronics recycling agency. DO NOT toss it into the trash, as it is irresponsible and harmful to the environment.

Feel free to share this blog post with anyone. It could save them allot of money, including keeping otherwise working electronics out of the landfill.


Recent happenings, odds and ends

Let’s just say I performed at a great concert to start things off, then once it ended, all of the footage got stolen along with the camcorder. Big time letdown, and it sucked to lose some other footage I was supposed to upload the week prior. Replacement unit was acquired the next week, same make, different model.

I now have two lovely little kittens, which will grow up to be some nice kitties. The last time I had cats was over 18 years ago. Time for a change! I got plenty of video footage from the digital camera and camcorder to share once put together. They are adorable!

Besides that, I acquired another great device, a BlackBerry Passport. Handy, large enough and satisfying. Don’t need an android device due to the fact of having an xperia m4. S S have the best of both worlds. Efficiency, security and of course, play time. He he he.

In other not so odd news, my oldest, most used bike pumps recently stopped working a few days ago, so I did what I could to perform maintenance on it (you can practically take apart most of it), but it was no use, the air stopper flap or piece was torn, or worn out. But I have a spare pump thankfully, and the best part: The parts are interchangeable. Meaning I can replace anything worn out. Hose, Latch, gauge and valve!

Last but not least, if I intend to venture outside of Canada, that passport of mine needs renewal, otherwise I will be going through a ton of paperwork to apply for a new one. Don’t need that!

That’s about all I need to write about. It doesn’t really require a video blog, as some things just cannot be described in Video form. Cheers, thanks for giving this a read! My kitties say meow!


Atkinson-Baker and Scientology, somebody is very butthurt and trying to wipe it off the face of the internet

There is a quote and it shall be here: Nothing ever gets erased, deleted, purged or white-washed off of the internet.

Apparently Atkinson-Baker thinks they can remove their ties with the cult of Scientology. Uh oh, better lawyer up! it’s not going to happen anytime soon.

A scientology reddit section is making headlines too, and the ones trying to get it removed simply because the name is used in conjunction with scientology, is really becoming quite the lulz fest.

Scientology can never ever EVER take this information down. It never will happen. No matter how many front groups they use, or complaints they make. NOTHING comes down from the internet.

Sorry “church”, but this ain’t happening. Suck on a long one for us, suppressive jerkinovs.

Many thanks for feedback on typos noticed. Very thankful. Fighting and exposing this insidious cult isn’t easy. We must all do it together! 1951-PRESENT!


Speaking of competition, WHY doesn’t Bell, Rogers and Telus offer UNLIMITED DATA USAGE?

The big three have done this in the past (about six to eight years ago) on student plans and some others, then they started gouging people by eliminating those and charging by the megabyte (and gigabytes depending), forcing people to be extremely careful about using their data and not to go over their cap/bucket/quota/limit. More or less to force them to use wi-fi when available (not many places offer it, which is a shame. Either it’s locked, requires a registration, or payment to use).

It’s now 2016, and US carriers (including those in other parts of the world), are offering unlimited data, some with a bundle of another service, and others as it is. Windmobile did this in 2009, and they have been growing since that time, same for mobilicity. The only two carriers to even OFFER unlimited data usage.

So why can’t rogers (fido/chat-r), bell (virgin) and telus (koodo) do this? What is stopping them? They have the spectrum and capacity, they have the surplus funding to do it, and tit’s not like they will EVER run into revenue problems down the road.

Only congestion, during peak times that is, in BIG cities, especially downtown areas and during big events such as big sports events, festivals and concerts (which promote social media use, big time). But I’m sure they can avoid congestion by putting their extra hoarded spectrum to use. πŸ˜‰

As for the “fastest network in canada” claim, it’s simply not realistic. It never will be. Wired internet connections can and will beat that. Mark my words. Just do a speed test to prove it, during peak times.

Okay, so whoever works at bell, rogers and telus, listen up, and start doing something to compete. We canadians are sick of the gouging. $90/GB? Come on, get real. Nobody charges that anymore. Abolish your overages!! SERIOUSLY!!
