    oh GOD!!
    sorry I couldn't resist
    they should have said that the COS IAS paid 110,000 for lobbying. That's alot of clams! lol
  3. RightOn Member

    so, let me get this straight...
    COS is lobbying for "reform" solutions by the committee?
    Reform like detox programs? and COS counseling?
    Or am I not getting it?
  4. AnonLover Member

    not rightly sure myself RO, i need to do more than just skim article in OP & fully digest that info when I'm done working for the day to truly get it I'm afraid.
  5. RightOn Member

    yeah I know
    that's an awful lot of dough. They must have something up their shells. I mean what would their concern be with reforming the criminal justice system unless they are trying to get narconon in? Looks like a perfect match to me. Sneaky bastards
  6. xenubarb Member

    Yeah, I can just hear their recommendations now...Criminon, Second Chance, TWTH Foundation...

    Jewelry Joy Westrum and her other-named hubby seem to be trying for the "private prison" dollar. It appears to be the next direction for little miss Second Chance, who should not be given one herself.

    They ever pay Albuquerque for rent and the stuff they stole? How is it that cities feeling a financial pinch can let over $100.000 in debt just slide?

    yeah not to go off topic, but can Westeum be that difficult to find?
    I mean they know where she lives. How did she get away with this crap? Maybe people need to make some noise again

    Nice to see that Scientology is one of the two groups who were honest and upfront about their lobbying activities.
  12. Anonymous Member

    If you actually read the article you'd see that honesty is little to do with it.
  13. Herro Member

    I see what I want to. Scientology is one of the most honest religious organizations out there, and this is proof.
