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.

One pilot tells his horor story of how the FAA and AA are in bed with each other. Join Monica Richardson for a 1 hour show with a pilot who will tell what happened to him. Other pilots may be calling in as well. Did you know if you are a pilot and you have issues with alcohol you are forced to go to an AA rehab and see an AA pyshciatrist charging you $1,500.- $2,500. for an hour session? Did you know that you may be required to sign a 3 page contract if you are a pilot that treats AA, its meetings, its sponosrs and its steps like a treament program , wrapped into a police watch dog type system. Its outrageous. Join us live in the chat room.
Dick B.'s son Ken talks about the new book he and his dad released this month, Pioneer Stories in Alcoholics Anonymous: God's Role in Recovery Confirmed! (December 2012). When Bill W. and Dr. Bob met in Akron, Ohio, on May 12, 1935 (Mother's Day), both were members of a group named "A First Century Christian Fellowship" (also known as the Oxford Group). Bill and Bob developed a program of recovery over the summer of 1935 which John D. Rockefeller's agent Frank Amos summarized in seven points in February 1938. (See DR. BOB and the Good Oldtimers, 131.) As Dr. Bob said in his last major talk: "In early A.A. days, . . . we were convinced that the answer to our problems was in the Good Book." (See The Co-Founders of Alcoholics Anonymous: Biograhical Sketches: Their Last Major Talks, Item # P-53, page 13.) After Bill and Bob "counted the noses" of those who had recovered as of November 1937, Bill was commissioned to write a book that would present the highly-successful, original Akron A.A. "Christian fellowship" program. (See DR. BOB and the Good Oldtimers, 123 and 118.) Bill W., however, wrote what he called "the new version of the program, now the 'Twelve Steps.'" (See Alcoholics Anonymous Comes of Age, 162.) Bill's statement at the Rockefeller Dinner on February 8, 1940, that A.A. claimed a 75% success rate among "seemingly-hopeless," "medically-incurable" alcoholics who thoroughly followed their path is mainly speaking about the original Akron program, as the Big Book had only been published April 10, 1939. When Clarence S. founded the A.A. group in Cleveland, which had a documented 93% success rate without relapse(!), he had done it with "by keeping most of the 'old program,' including the Bible and the Four Absolutes." (See Mitchell K., How It Worked, 108.) Our new book talks about success

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?
SOMETIMES YOU DO GET A SECOND CHANCE TO MAKE A FIRST IMPRESSION.
In which the S.O.S meeting Jeff and Chris set out to attend is not the S.O.S. meeting they find. Which then leads Jeff to facilitate Chris’ second attempt at attending an A.A. meeting.
Will he go in?
Will he stay?
Do they cast him out as an imposter?
Do they welcome him as a brother?
Is there coffee?
Find out in this week’s episode…
We also talk through Step 11.
