Sept KM '03 - Give Us More Money

    The Sept. KM has an insert showing progress on building the new printing facility at Wallkill.

    It says this stuff should be finished by "early 2005" ( Damn! another Armageddon delay!)

    It will cost 50 million, so there's the usual suggestion to open up wallets for the "World Wide Work".

    The announcements remind elders to complete the "Annual Property Document Review Worksheet ( T-33E)

    and the "Safety Inspection Work Sheet" in September (T-34E). They gotta make sure about who owns what and avoid

    getting sued about safety hazards.

    The front of the KM sez the info comes from the "US Branch Office"

    Lurkers! Do you ever wake up and realize this is all a business - and they get free labor from pushing you to peddle magazines?

    Rutherford was right!

    Religion IS a snare and a racket!

    ..... not to mention furnishing skilled labor at no cost to such projects, and at the cost of untold hours of personal time with the attendant surrender of ``quality time'' with family and friends.

    Is it possible you could scan this KM ?

    It would make an interesting piece on money making.

    I would like to see that as well. It's like what's wrong with this picture . Apparently they can't sell enough magazines to cover the costs so what's the friggen point in building another facility . The sad part is all the brain washed dubs will think that somehow this will make "jehovah " happy .

    I think they're building the new facility so that they can move out of Brooklyn. Staying in Brooklyn is very expensive. Conversely, moving out of Brooklyn, they can sell their very valuable property there.

    I thought that, too, Euphemism.

    They certainly have a lot of gall asking for more money for building in the US when there's all the sites at Crooklyn, one of which their own website says is up for sale. And then there's Patterson........boy, even the R&F downunder question that!!!!

    Whatever happened to that concentration of efforts to get KH built in the poorer countries??? I wonder!!

    Cheers, Ozzie

    I thought they had revenue of 951 million last year 50 million for another project is a drop in the bucket.....

    Oh yeah.... I forgot they spend about 900 million on St Johns Wart to help all the bethelites cope with stress
