Straight and them Republicans
  About now you might be wondering, "Oh, yeah, well if Straight is a cult then why was Nancy Reagan such a big Straight promoter that she visited Straight - St. Pete even though she knew that Straight - Atlanta was being sued by the ACLU for human rights violations? Why did Bush I make a TV commercial for Straight?  Why did Bush II make Straight's founder the ambassador to Italy?  Why is Bush II's brother, Governor Jeb Bush, along with his wife Columba and his drug czar James McDonough on the advisory board for Straight (now calling itself Drug Free America Foundation [DFAF is no longer in the treatment business])? Why did one White House drug czar become a paid Straight consultant,  and how did Straight's national medical researcher director become the drug czar? Read now Straight and them Republicans

Margaret Thaler Singer dead. Margaret Thaler Singer, Ph.D., author, Professor Emeritus of Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley died on November 23, 2003. She was 82. Dr. Singer was a world renowned expert on cults and brainwashing. She was twice nominated for a Nobel Prize for her work in schizophrenia. Editor Wes Fager spoke with her on several occasions about the Straight cult. In 1986 she was used by authorities from the state of Ohio as an expert witness in its successful move to close Straight - Cincinnati. She was on the advisory board of the American Family Foundation, one of world's leading cult awareness organizations. She was a great lady and will be sorely missed.

103,412 Federal Jobs In Privitization Study George Bush's pupeteers have directed him to privitize the federal government so that they can bid on government jobs. No they do not want a government job; they want their management companies to manage those jobs. Congress told him to prove he can save money so he's had his minions spending millions verify him. GAO has just released a report studying at least 103,412 federal jobs up for grab. story

Bush croonies to get Iraq money DFAF got a government grant, not to set up drug free workplace environments, but to be a consultant to advise other companies on how to set up a drug free workplace environment. Now other Bush croonies have formed a corporation, not to rebuild Iraq, but to be a consultant for other American companies to rebuild Iraq. story

Salon Magazine features story on the Moonies Ever hear of a church where the guru encourages his followers to "cherish and punish your 'love organ' (with pliers if necessary)"; or where teenagers in a youth group are instructed to spit in a cup, exchange it with another student and then drink it! If not you'd better read John Gorenfeld's account of Reverend Moon and the Unification Church in Salon magazine. The Bush's have their hands in Moon's pockets, but Bush the father says of the Moonies, "this group is about strengthening the family and that's what President and Mrs. Bush are deeply focused on." Recall what he said about Straight? story Wes Fager's letter to the editor at Salon related article on Betty Sembler

Jeb Bush promises to extend medical malpractice caps to Floridians. George Bush is something. There is a hospital in Florida that cut off a man's leg--the wrong one. So they had to go back and cut off the correct one--now he has no legs! A medical facility in Michigan read the wrong Xrays and told a woman she had to have both breasts removed. After they cut them off they discovered the error. Now she has no breasts. A girl a Duke was given a donor organ but nobody, anywhere bothered to check to see if it matched her body. She died. These weren't malicious acts; they were grave mistakes. But the doctor in Virginia who intentionally injected her patients with their own feces, now that is evil. Just like the numerous doctors who drug women and then have sex with them. Pound for pound the medical profession makes enormous salaries and law suits cut into their salaries. So they went to George Bush as a group and contributed money to get him elected if in return he would put a ceiling cap of $250,000 on all medical malpractice suits. Bush took the money. During his state of the Union message this year he stated that, "Because SOME medical malpractice suits are frivioulous, we must place a cap on ALL medical malpractice suits." As L. Ron Hubbard would say that is a "non sequitor" and completely stupid. The whole Bush family is a stage of marionettes, patsies for big businessmen and priviteers, medical doctors and newage cultist. What will they leave for the rest of us as Jeb Bush adopts his brothers $250,000 medical malpractice ceiling cap for Floridians. story

Religiosity as social policy by Robyn E. Blumner There was this church in Texas that ran Jesus-based rehabilitation programs for teenagers but lost its license because state health officials accsued the program of abusing children. So church officials complained to then Governor George Bush. No problem said the governor. We'll just inact legislation saying that church-run social programs will be exempt from state scrutiny. And I'll do one better than that he said. When the businessmen who run this nation make me President, I'll make my faith-based initiative the law of the land and I will use federal tax dollars to reimburse established churches, abusive churches and newage cults to do what ever it is they do. SP Times story

The Bush's have done as much as anyone to popularize the Moonies and other controversial religious sects in return for money just as they have helped make Sembler-based synanons fashionable. Above the Europeans are directing some mooning of their own on George W. story
George W. Bush is like Buzz Lightyear of Space Command who thinks he's a real space cadet. I agree with Paul Begala, co-host of Crossfire, when he said of George W. Bush, "He's one of those guys who was born on third base and thinks he hit a triple."

When I first saw a copy of Fortunate Son in our local Crown Bookstore I made a mental note to get it one day. Then I heard on the radio that J. H. Hatfield, the book's author, had been involved in a murder plot. I immediately knew the book must be explosive and made a bee line for Crown. Too late! The owner had already sent all copies back to the publisher. I ran to my car and made it across town to Borders. A clerk told me they had taken all copies off the shelf but he could get me one from the back room, which he did. I bought it.

The Republican Regents have too much money tied up in the Bush name to let the likes of J. H. Hatfield pop the bubble. St. Martin's Press is not publishing Fortuane Son anymore. J. H. Hatfield is dead. But Sander Hicks of Soft Skull Press is publishing a softback version. That's a story all by itself. ed story order
