Ok…wow…Im tired. it is finally there. Just came back from my editors house. What an amazing editor….more later. Im going for a walk with my dog!

Thank you all who contributed in any way to my leaving AA and deprogramming etc !

So there is now much to do before you all can see this puppy.

film festival picI am done.

We are done… for now…dont get me wrong…there is still a lot to do…

but I have a film now.  WHOO HOO !!!

I know the famous ones, like Cannes, Sundance, Tiff, Amsterdam, South by SW, Vancouver, austin, Telluride ( i missed this deadline by just a few days) Full Frame in North Carolina where Keeper’s son was murdered so many years ago by his AA sponsor.

I think I should submit to Detroit, or near by I think Michael Moore has one there, Chicago and Cleveland, Seattle and Portland. Palm Springs and LA too.

Suing Alcoholics Anonymous, your “EAP” employer, 12 step rehabs and your Insurance Company that pays for a religious 1930’s never updated peer support groups. No Mental Heath and NO real Health Care provided there ma, so whats the deal? What can you do?

Is AA like a wind up  phone circa 1930’s…oldphone1930

and Smart Recovery is like an IPHONE.

Why in America are we so stuck back then, when it  comes to addiction, alcoholic overuse and dependency? At first I thought AA just grew as a grassroots organization. I thought that because the readings at AA meetings and the folklore that is perpetuated in meetings, makes one think that. Our TV  shows like “MOM”momtv show pic

and FILMS like “FLIGHT”

flightpicwith Denzel Washington   promotes it all flagrantly like its sweet cookies and milk support group that is run by professionals  and  secular, which we all know is not true! …

so hear is the thread you have requested….:)

Hi.  Have you been coerced or bullied into AA? Are you a Doctordrsmokingpic

or a pilot? AA was formulated when cigarettes were promoted as being good for us as we see here in this ad. Well, is AA still good for the masses? Never updated, never researched  or never vetted? For 75 years…

pilots pic

I have just come back from interviewing a Pilot and a Doctor.  I was so shocked I had a hard time watching the footage when I got home. I got up from my desk, went downstairs and told my husband it was too depressing…I could not handle it …how sad he is…. Thank God my editor is more detached! LOL Thanks … Barry RUBINOW.

The coercion within the FAA and pilots is so fucked up that it broke my heart. This pilot /doctor was so sad that I have no words for what I felt from him. We could not film him in the light and we will have to pitch his voice for fear that he will be so retaliated upon and loss his license.

Things are very bad when the FAA is sending you to an AA psychiatrist who is called a something …blah blah medical Sponsor with some silly other word preceding it. They charge $1,500. for one session. There are only 2 of them in Northern Cali. They force the pilots to go to an expensive $40,000 bullshit rehab called HAZELTON !!!!!!! filled with stepper shit….OMFG!

I want you to know this….You are not alone. There is an attorney who can help you. Please contact me for now and we  will begin to see how to handle all the emails.  makeaasafer@gmail.com

FILMING in Louisville, and Arkansas, then Bellingham for “The 13th Step”. Coming to a city near you…

MapspicHi. I am coming to these 5 cities over the following 4 weeks as we wrap up filming. .  If anyone wants to talk to me ,  please contact me at makeaasafer@gmail.com

Also… if you know a meeting that I should go to with Make AA Safer Pamphlet, please let me know. If you have any more information that you think I need to know please also contact us.

Please feel free to contribute to the fund…making a film is not cheap…  I have hired an editor and he is beginning to cut the film together. We need animation and motion graphics to be done next.

We have about 10 more days of filming left, some in Los Angeles and a many are in other cities. Bellingham, WA. Charlotte, NC, Little Rock, Arkansas, Louisville, Kentucky, St Louis, Missouri, Palm Springs, CA, West Covina and Los Angeles, CA.

If you, or anyone you know have been harmed and wants to talk to me please contact me asap.  makeaasafer@gmail.com I don’t need anymore interviews but if you have been harmed and want help and want to talk please still contact me.

If you know any pilots, doctors, lawyers or the like who were coerced and against their will and sent to AA ….we are also very interested in adding this story to the movie.  If you know the name of a 13 stepper please email me that privately as well. When I am done with the film I am taking my files to the proper authorities.

Thanks.

 

The 13th Step the Film – NOW Available on VIMEO to RENT and BUY

Here is a short synopsis of what we hope to change and effect:

Change Federal and State Laws around AA coercion and 12 step plea bargaining with Sex and violent offenders.

Force AA to add safety and sexual harassment policy. This would include forcing them to have Area and District “Make AA Safer Workshops” all over the county. Create a hotline for those assaulted and harassed. Have a paid AA person, or some professional employee to travel the country dealing with places that are most dangerous and grievous with bad situations. Post my literature everywhere, including a Sexual Harassment and Financial Scamming Poster at the entry way to every meeting.

Put a warning on their site main GSO AA.org  and on all AA meeting sites.

Have a Safety statement read before every meeting.

Have a warning read that it is illegal to give medical advice to other members about Medications members take.

Make it policy that No Person under 18 may attend a meeting.

Educate the public on the 7 other free options.

Educate the public what is really going on in AA and shine the light and expose the truth.

Thanks. I appreciate all the contributions so far and the feedback as well.

DUI HELP -HAVE YOU Been Forced to Attend Alcoholics Anonymous Meetings?-What are Your 1st Amendment Rights?

DUI_pic

Every year some 1.4 Million people are coerced to attend AA as if it were some real Drug/alcohol treatment  program.

We know it’s not. It’s nothing but a laypersons, super religious type, no leader in charge, self help pods. But we also know this is not the case. AA is not  a sober club looking to support you. It would be nice if it was. AA is not a goody two shoes, love and light organization like you might see on their National AA website.

And further more, when someone gets a first DUI , DRUNK DRIVING TICKET, they most probably are not “ALCOHOLIC’S” like the Bill WIlson variety. 98% of the people who attend AA today are most likely only alcohol abusers, not alcohol dependent.

I am making a film called “The 13th Step” the FILM , right now, that is addressing the court ordering of violent and sex  offenders, the fact that our 1ST Amendment rights are being broken, and that there are 7 other free options besides AA when it comes to alcohol and drug overuse.

There really is too much to cover in one 90 minute film, but hell yea , I am going to do my very best!

But there is another aspect that I am going to address in my film. It’s the one that I am getting the most phone calls, texts,  emails, and blog posts asking me, hey Massive….are you gonna deal with the 13 stepping, brainwashing, the cult aspect, the mindfuck….the emotional abuse, the mental abuse….the sexual harassment, the indentured servitude? ( This goes on at any PG meeting or spin off) It’s against the law too.

My answer is YES, yes and yes!

Please follow the link and watch the video. I will l be posting  video updates in a few days.

…read my campaign story and please donate…even if it’s a few pennies. It all matters.

We are doing really well in fundraising and have gotten to a 25% already raised in just 5 days.
