Shocking new information ...How deep is this rabbit hole? This last spring I met with a pilot who told me his story. When we drove away I felt how depressed and sad he was that he may never fly again. Why? Beacuse he has a problem with alcohol? No. Because AA members have infiltrated every nook and cranny of our culture and world only to tell them ...do it our way..reliious AA or the highway. To tell even Nurses they have to go to AA for 5 years ...WOW...WOW.... I am outraged....How can the FAA force a Pilot to attend an AA rehab ($40,000) and see an AA psychiatrist ( for $2,500.) to regain their flying abilities? Money and AA dont mix? Bullshit!
If you or someone you know has been coereced and forced to AA dogma, has lost your job, lost wages etc we are rallying to discuss a civil class action lawsuit. Please listen and share everywhere.

Some say he's a serial killer. Others, a vigilante doing what police can't or won't do. What's certain is that Dean Drayhart, a paraplegic, will soon sit on death row for killing hit-and-run drivers in Los Angeles. But not if the Mexican Mafia gets hold of him first. Somewhere, Dean's trained companion monkey Sid and girlfriend Cinda are outrunning the law in a fast '98 Trans Am. The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department wants Sid, dead or alive. Dean may be broken in body but his fierce spirit is determined to protect Sid and Cinda in the most creative ways imaginable. Hardboiled, funny, relentless, and unexpectedly tender-hearted, Bite Harder delivers riotous action all the way to a bombshell climax that could only have been written by Anonymous-9, the self-declared mad scientist of crime fiction.
Praise for Bite Harder
"Brilliantly, brutally funny, so real you can taste it. Starring Sid, the cutest serial-killing helper monkey in all fiction." — Douglas Lindsay, author of the Barney Thomson novels
"Bite Harder is part screwball comedy, part killer crime story entirely unlike anything else out there. It is unique and vicious and bloody funny but what kept me turning pages deep into the night was its heart. I loved Hard Bite, and Bite Harder is even better, stronger, wilder." — Josh Stallings, Beautiful, Naked & Dead
"Few books have a killer monkey, and fewer still have a writer as funny, incisive, and down-and-dirty brilliant as Anonymous-9." — Benjamin Whitmer, Cry Father

Stepper mom, Ms AA, AA geek, True Believer, Koolaid drinking fool...all the names I once called myself. How was I brainwashed. Why did I stay after I was 13 stepped at ages 18 & 19? What cracked things open and how did I plan my escape. Is this a cult? Host Monica Richardson tells her story.
We talk about Jacob's upcoming trip to Vikings Training Camp and potential MLB trades before the deadline. We're sorry if this one sucks, it's our first one.
Join Garrett on Monday to welcome Mike Anthony of The AnonymoUS Initiative. Mike will talk about the group which is dedicated to helping people of all ages, all demographics and all orientation overcome what bullies them through artistry.
What began as a simple letter writing campaign has since exploded into an artistic movement, inspiring a feature-length documentary, a book, a musical soundtrack and a live stage show; all focused on exploring the most insidious bully of all -- the secret bully that lives inside of each of us. This isn't a "gay" thing; this isn't a "high school" thing. It's about coming to terms with the ways all of us humans bully ourselves throughout life.

Child Molested in an AA meeting. Man's Throat Slit "in an AA Meeting", Charlotte Man PLeads guilty in shooting death of AA sponsor...Woman and 13 year old daughter murdered by man she met in an AA meeting...and the list goes on. SO WHY DOES AA World Headquarters tell its members...Its an outside issue when they call to say someone has been raped or 13 stepped by men they meet in AA.
Know two things...AA is not safe. 2) Your Rights are broken when told to go there by a judge or a lawyer. AA is already deemed "highly religious in 25 states" .
Many members have been taken for thousnads of dollars and never go to the police...why? Why do these people think AA members get of scott free?
