Absolutely not! First of all, I haven't had a whole lot of failure in my life. Second, I knew even back then that Straight was never anywhere near the whole story.

I hold the people responsible for Straight, The Seed, the CEDU line of gulags and their philisophical bretren responsible for what they're doing with all their esteem and power now.

For example, DATIA (Drug and Alcohol Testing Industries Association) has lobbied very successfuly for piss testing anywhere they can sqeeze it in; schools and workplaces, mostly. Piss testing has been shown through peer reviewed research to be absolutely ineffective at reducing substance use and quite harmful to the lives, futures and careers of people subject to it. You and I pay higher insurance rates in part because of the federal mandates to give lower rates to businesses that piss test. We never get the benefit (because there is none) but we pay for it. Kids get kicked out of school, sent to Straight like programs, lose higher education funding, miss out on sports, can't get/hold jobs because of piss testing. We pay for that line of piss testing directly through our tax dollars.

And the members of DATIA get all that windfall. Just look it up and see who the members of DATIA are.

If you want to get into the real nitty gritty, just follow the careers and public activity of that small cadre of scammers. They're largely responsible for the persecution of pain doctors and their patients, the holy jihad against medical marijuana, our ongoing involvement in Colombia's civil war, the spread of destructive, expensive and ineffective area drug task forces and a long list of other crimes and malfescence.  

As far as what happened 20 years ago, well there's my fucked up family for ya. If it hadn't been The Seed it would probably have been some particularly rabid sect of stepcraft or Amway or Herbalife or some other dumb shit. The Seed came and went, swept up those people who bought into it, but nowhere near everybody they solicited. That's over, long ago, ancient history. I never did care about that. I'd decided by the time I was 14 that the best solution to my personal problem was to part ways w/ those crazy people, or at least get enough distance from them so they couldn't mess w/ me. Maybe a family reunion, wedding or funeral from time to time.

This other stuff, though, doesn't go away or quit effecting me just because I choose out whenever and however I can. My new neighborhood, just like the one I left, is becoming a war zone because these idiots are so hooked on Prohibition. I think we need to do something about that.

So, what to do...

I just do what I like and what I'm good at. It's not much, really. I just try to put some of this info before people who I think have a connection to it and who wouldn't otherwise know it. I try to get ppl to come forward and tell the rest of us what they know (anon or not) Sometimes it works out pretty well.

Hold on, my friends, to the Constitution and to the Republic
for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster, and what has
happened once in 6000 years, may not happen again. Hold on to
the Constitution, for if the American Constitution should fail,
there will be anarchy throughout the world.

  Speaking of Emmy's - the LIFE program's documentary (early 1980's) won one.  I still have a copy of the doc.  It followed 4 participants through all their phases (at the program, host homes, etc.).

Some just like to play the victim, and will do so for life.

"blame" and "victim" are definitely 12-step and self-help language. and the one you quoted about the past and the present is an old classic from those weird worlds.[ This Message was edited by: fka on 2005-05-13 18:27 ]

Yeah, well, some people say the Nobel Peace Prize is bogus too. But if you won one, you'd treasure it, wouldn't you?

What is ominous is the ease with which some people go from saying that
they don't like something to saying that the government should forbid it. When you go down that road, don't expect freedom to survive very long.

Wrong, its miller goddamn newton. He had a band called the "ruptured purple starfish" for awhile before he started posing as a man of god.

Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction.
