Partisan? I object to that. You dont know me well enough. Creepy? well .......Ive been called just let me say this.
Heres what I believe, government is a farce, vote for the idiot du jour,but remember he's a politician.It matters not one iota
what party hes with today.
Personally the last decent president we had was (in my opinion) Truman. Kennedy was lame,so was johnson,nixon,ford ,carter,ronnie ray-gun(bonzo was smarter)bush the 1st,clinton,and the 2nd bush.
At different times in my life ive been:
                                                        A registered democrat
                                                        A registered republican
                                                        A registered independant
                                                        A registered felon
I think people should own guns.Im pro-choice.I wish my country would stop trying to be the worlds policeman.I wish pot was legal so people could make up their own minds. I wish the economy wasnt based on bullshit.Id be happy if people had jobs,and gas was cheaper.  Now how the hell is that partisan?  Is it too much to ask for school systems to work? WTF.

So um ....not to be obtuse but......did this abomination even get off the ground?

Does anybody else remember the congressional "Waco" hearings? Biden just wound up sounding like he'd made up his mind without hearing ANY testimony, the only person worse was good ol" Charles Schumer,he couldnt contain himself,and obviously didnt have the first clue as to what he was talking about, I remember laughing aloud at some of his silliness.
Sadly though......those hearings accomplished absofuckinglutly nothing, so imho they were only for show,so that the powers that be could say "we examined the issue" as usual for D.C.( I geuss)

He's got Tom-Tom. :nods:

Consider also that Colin Powell's son forks for the F.C.C. and it becomes trite.

I think you have a good point about the shame of bringing the story out,  I feel attacks of that with the movie coming out...

I hear ya on this although my perspective is different. Do you mean shame of contributing to abuse or just being put in Straight? I hope I'm not being too personal, just curious.  I'm hoping the good out weighs the bad. I've gotten a number of emails from people thanking us for making this film. That it gave them something they could send to their parents, opened up that door of communication.  Not to mention the plethora of current parents it will enlighten so they don't do this to their children. The healing that seems to be starting.  As well as finally being able to hold the criminals responsible for the abuse and the deaths.

I wonder also how many parents went to their graves ,full of regret for the roles they had in it.How many families who waddled thier asses into str8 on the last legs of hope only to run aground and be crushed on the programs bullshit? How many children just split and never spoke to family again? or died full of rage towards parents.Yeah there's a fair amount of shame that comes with the idea of " I was locked up in this bizzaro-monkeyfarm-from-hell place",and then if one would bravely tell of the experience,the agast looks and statements of disbelief,would be enough to remind you not to do that shit again. People in general never want to believe monsters sometimes are quite real,and do exist,and may live next door.
It's easier to deny, go back to watching dancing with the stars or football,and whining about some superficial thing or the other.

I agree, Ijust cant see 50,000......I always figured that not counting ,spin offs,and siblings that maybe the tolal of people who actually were on front row probably doesnt exceed 25,000. Now some of those people are going to be in sundry forms of denial , ranging from the people who were only exposed briefly,to those who were long term attendees.Most folks I figure would just like to forget it ever happened.I spent decades trying myself,only to get the ocasional "flash" of rage usually when some jackass or another would try to be controlling, or to presume to tell me how I SHOULD feel or think. Now I wish I could remember and try to purge it in some fashion. Id be willing to bet most are trying to forget or deny ,all to varying degrees that have some connection to how long they were there,and how fucked up they were to start with. It becomes hard to say after a point.....some folks flat out didnt need to be there to begin with,the involvement they had with drugs was minimal or non-existant, there were others of us who hit front row at a real shit point in our lives,only to be furthur beaten down by our supposed "saviors".
I also wonder how many folks went on to do what? Be the ceo of somthing? Join the military? Do time? Just live a life?
The options are fairly broad,and will vary from person to person. I know theres got to be a shitload of walking wounded out there,and lots who dont know why,and many more who wont admit why.

After paying for Miller Newton's antics.......Ill bet they think twice before insuring anything remotely like that again.
I wonder if his PRESENT insurance knows of his past hijinks.......hmmm :nods:

Yeah ,thinking back on it i think that by the time the gandy blvd building opened he had gone. Iremember that Bill Oliver character too. If memory serves he had something to do with a miltary "detox" or something similar before his involvement. He came into the picture about the same time as Gandy blvd opened up. It would be interesting to find out more about that character as well. He seemed hinkey to me even back then. There was alot of hinkey goin on in those days.They were tryin to open sarasota up about this time also. There was "talk" of ohio,as well.

Im really not shocked. I used to feel a certain amount of outrage about things. I ask myself all sorts of questions. Like why did 911 bombers learn to fly at Venice airport,in venice florida? Just for shits and grins,google" venice airport and the CIA".
I mean fuck me, and the whole of the okie city thing seems like a really easy answer,no? The truth is becoming more scarce by the minute .
 Dont get me started on the whole Waco thing either. ::deadhorse::
