Could A A become a home grown Al-Qaeda?

AA has been under attack from many sides for several years. Now that it has increasingly become the source of material for mainstream comedy, its days truly are numbered. AA members are leaving in such numbers that AAWS now won’t publish figures of membership levels. How does this affect the demographics of AA? What kind of people are remaining in the cult?

The Plea for a Bill W Postage Stamp on June 10th, 2013, the 78 Anniversary of the Cult of Alcoholics Anonymous

In yet another case of Promotion, instead of Attraction, the makers of the documentary film "Bill W" are going against AA Traditions and having a "film debut" on June 10, 2013 where they are handing out postcards addressed to the United States Post office asking for a "Bill W" Stamp to be made. Stating that Bill Wilson deserves his own US Postage Stamp because he made the Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of the 20th Century. It should be remembered that Bart Simpson was also on that list and I think he deserves a US Posptage Stamp also.

Fill In The Blank Step Work!

One of the supervisors at work showed me a site today that has easy to fill out, "official" forms for communicating with other people. A few of them caught my eye!

From the Bureau of Communication comes...

FILL IN THE BLANK STEP WORK!

The first one makes Step 9 easy and much less time consuming, If you are the Stepper on the go, then this one is right up your alley! Which is funny because the alley used to be your house....I kid I kid!

Dissection of Step Words (Part IV)

First, I have to say it took me a minute to figure out what the Roman Numeral was for four...then I remembered Star Wars! Nice!

OK, so it is time for part four of my little series. Are you feeling thankful, appreciative, maybe even a little...grateful?

If so put your hands together because its time for a little gratitude attitude!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First the Stepper perspective, then the reality and then my judgement!

Let's go:

Alcoholics Anonymous tracking the indoctrination of Cuba by AA missionaries from Ontario, Canada

Alcoholics Anonymous República de Cuba ~

AA is almost an underground movement in Cuba, it is not recognized by the Cuban government, as they believe that their hospitals under the "Departamento de Higiene and Mental Health" can provide health care to cure their alchoholism problem in the country.

How our little group of Canadian members got involved:

Alcoholics Anonymous (AA): Your Personal Jesus

Another AA theme song.

This guy is coming to Kansas City and is billed with Alice Cooper.

Marilyn Manson sings "Personal Jesus"

Bill W. - The Original 13th Stepper

In commemoration of Memorial Day and remembering BillW®’s legacy, I dedicate a song to BillW®. This seems only appropriate since the General Service Board of Alcoholics Anonymous, Inc., Alcoholics Anonymous World Services, Inc. and the General Service Conference all seem to be POWERLESS in stopping violent sexual predators in being mandated to AA meetings.

In fact, it seems that ever since BillW® 13th Stepped his first victim it has almost become a standard practice in AA.

Dissection of Step Words (Part III)

So I left off last time with disease. Tonight I am delving into the depths of Serenity...if only!

Just like the other ones, I will start with what Steppers believe, then show some reality, and then place my judgement on the two!

Here we go:

Quick one for today...just for today! HA!

Just a quick one. Here's the lyrics to a song I have been listening to. Seems appropriate:

MUSE - Supremacy:

Wake to see - your true emancipation is a fantasy.
Policies have risen up and overcome the brave.

Greatness dies, unsung and lost, invisible to history.
Embedded spies brainwashing our children to be mean.

You don't have long,
I am on to you
The time, it has come to destroy...

Your supremacy
Supremacy

Your supremacy
Supremacy

Ooh
Ooh

Dissection of Step Words (Part II)

I did powerlessness yesterday, so i thought it would be good to go into disease today. I have been putting some thought into it, and I have come up with some disturbing ideas! So lets take a look shall we? Just like yesterday, I will first define it according to Step, then show the reality, and then place a judgment on the word! Here we go...

AA Monopoly

The new game soon to be sweeping the recovery world!!! Anyone who's been to AA will know of the plethora of AA merchandise there is for sale. The books, the jewelry, the stickers, the t-shirts, more books, the cards, the prayer boxes, the CDs - and did I mention the fucking books? The list goes on and on. Now, it's about time for something that has never been available in the past. AA the board game. Something along the lines of monopoly but with no money involved. That's all been sent to AAWS to pay the salaries and pensions. Instead, players will amass Serenity Points and Guru Stars.

Dissection of Step Words (Part I)

The last time I was in a treatment center, I heard a story from one of the "counselors" that told of how the idea of powerlessness came up in one of his classes. The girl who brought up the concept said she didn't like the idea that people with addiction issues were told they were powerless.

The Rise of SYNANON and Charles Diederich using the Bill Wilson LSD Ouija Board Business Model of Alcoholics Anonymous

The link between SYNANON, Straight, Inc, The Seed, Elan School and Bill Wilson is often missed by the casual observer, but for those that are familiar with these teen torture camps for fun and profit, the link is very obvious because the confrontational therapy model they employed all came from the teachings of Charles E. "Chuck" Dederich, Sr., (1913–1997) who was enrolled in the same LSD study from the University of California that Bill Wilson was in during 1957 (http://orange-papers.org/forum/node/3430).

Arrested for her death and currently on trial is Aaron Harris, 36 who met her at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting in 2010 in AA General Service Area 24, District 14 (http://www.aa-iowa.org/index.php?id=95).

Cult Test

I found this, just for a bit of fun at first, but was surprised by how they define a cult. http://www.insolitology.com/rationally/culttest.htm By my reckoning AA scores 33, but I may be a bit biased. Have a go and see how you rate them.

Let's have a laugh

WE had a blog on here about a year ago, maybe more, where people posted funny YouTube links re AA. It seems like a good time to resurrect it, and hopefully add to it, as we seem to have quite a flow of new people coming in. Here's 3 links to get the ball rolling Penn and Teller - 12 step Bullshit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uU2YliYttnQ Roseanne - My name is Bev http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wK8rhnuku68 A UK comedy duo - Hale and Pace - Alcoholics Anonymous
