North Carolina. Read. It's worth it. I guess. So, WWP, my account tells me it's been two weeks since I've logged in last. Seemed like a longer time. Lemme get the NC related stuff out of the way, so you can just skip my bawwww story at the end. I don't know if this has been posted on the site yet, I've spoken to some Anons about it, but as far as I know, it hasn't been posted. If it has, sorry, go ahead and ignore it. It probably won't make much since because Pwnon is pretty drunk right now, but please bear with myself and Spell Check as we attempt to make this work. So, it seems that Scientology has officially ended in North Carolina. We'd been tracking a small Narconon outfit in Charlotte. It's website was located at www.ncdrugfree.org , however, it is no longer active. The number is also dead. There was also a CCHR. It has suffered the same fate. So, guise, as it were to be, there is no Scientology presence in North Carolina. Officially. There are, however, a few things too keep an eye on: The Way to Happiness: News-Talk 1110 WBT | Hometown Hero Gallery Carl Rubidge: (not gonna direct link, but fill it in yourself) www. carl rubidge . com So, it's not much, probably the least contributions I've ever made, but it's the best I can do. Things for Pwnon have gotten tough, guise. My last paycheck shows I worked 62 hours. The money is good, but it's very time consuming. The free time I used to dedicate to the anti-Scientology movement has been eaten up by work. And any free time I do have is spent with my fiancee (who is an ex-Scientologist; born into Scientology, still has connections with her current-Scientologist family members), and getting our life together started. My job currently requires I work a minimum of six days a week, and I can't get any viable days off. Up at 5 am, sleep at 2 am. So, in short, I would like to apologize to my fellow NCanons for my lack of contributions and I regret to inform that, as of today, I'm officially retiring from the anti-Scientology movement. I am not giving up against my advocacy against getting out of the Cult, nor will I silence myself in critiquing Scientology. I just do not have the time to make plans or dig into the cult like I previously had. I don't have the time to protest like I used to. I'll still be available to give help, if I can, but my activity has been greatly reduced. I thank everyone for the great time we've had together in all of this; and I'd especially like to thank those who helped NCanons get up and running. If it hadn't have been for Why We Protest or Anonymous, I would have never met my future wife, so for that, I'm grateful for my time here. There have been a lot of victims of the cult, and I've seen what they can do, first hand. My fiancee, Gypsy, left Scientology 5 years ago, iirc. She left Scientology completely broke. Scientology took all her money. She was staff in CA and paid dearly for everything there. She left with no HS education. Scientology left her so far behind in state mandated education that she couldn't catch up. She's now attempting to get her GED. She's been stalwarted by Scientology since she left. The school she attended has "lost" her school record. She's shy and doesn't interact with people as well as she can, because of Scientology. She's in a shell that's often hard to break because it's all she knows. While I know she's a sweet, loving, funny, outspoken, wonderful person, Scientology knew her as money. And they used her for money. And they nearly crushed the person I've fallen in love with. So, as long as I live, Scientology will have a critic. I may not stand outside their Org anymore, but I'll spread every evil-deed, every ill-intended action they have to everyone I can tell. Gypsy may not be Paulette Cooper. She may not be Lisa McPherson. But she's one of a rising amount of victims. And add Pam Bryant to that list of Scientology victims. She was in charge of our Org in NC. Last I heard, she's been blacklisted and exiled from Scientology. What did she do wrong? It's not her fault Scientology did nothing to save their Org. And yet, now she's declared against her friends and family, because they couldn't renew a stupid lease. So anyways, I know I'm rambling, but I needed to clear some things up and get them off my chest. NC, I love you guys, sorry I can't be more active anymore. You know how to get ahold of me if you need anything, and I'll give as much help as I can. Scientology, just to let you guys know, you've always had my name, number, address, and contact information after all this time. You just haven't known it. What a waste of money your O.S.A is, huh?
