Charlie Sheen: Typical Addict

Charlie Sheen: Typical Addict

By Nancy

I know Charlie Sheen. I’ve never met him, and I don’t
wish to. But I know who he is and how he feels. He is no super-star and he is
not unique. He is merely a typical addict/alcoholic.

Charlie Sheen’s continuing public meltdowns come as no surprise to anyone
who has ever attended an Alcoholics or Narcotics Anonymous meeting. His drug
induced behavior is the norm for millions who struggle daily with substance
abuse. Some give in to it, as Sheen has, and others manage, for a day at a time,
to remain clean and sober.
Make no mistake, drugs and booze offer an enticing alternative to harsh
reality. When one is under the influence, reality becomes whatever you want it
to be. The capacity for self-delusion is unequaled, at least till it’s time for
another fix or drink. For most substance abusers, this imagined reality must be
maintained at any cost. Hey, who wants to admit to needing a crutch? Better to
redefine reality to a less judgmental interpretation.
Science has not yet determined whether alcoholism or drug addiction is
genetically determined. No-one has figured out why one person can have just one
drink while another must continue drinking well past the drunken stage. There
are, however, certain common patterns of behavior that remain exclusive to
substance abusers. And Charlie Sheen exhibits them all.
Denial: The stock-in-trade of drunks who have not yet lost
everything. To acknowledge a problem means having to deal with it. And taking a
pill or drink instantly banishes that annoying intrusion of reality. Until the
day it doesn’t.
Grandiosity: Anyone who has seen Sheen’s recent appearances on TV should be able to recognize his
increasing disconnect from reality.
Because Sheen has mucho bucks and an entourage of enabling sycophants, it
is unlikely that he will beat his addiction. He will continue to insist his
version of reality is the correct one and will continue to willfully ignore the
myriad warning signs that are so obvious to the unimpaired.
Charlie Sheen is a pathetic drunk. The only thing that separates him from
the gutter is his money. He is not unique. He is a typical substance abuser,
just like the homeless drunks you see in the inner city. The only difference is,
Charlie isn’t homeless.  And despite his insistence on redefining reality to his
specifications, there are certain realities he can’t change.
Namely:

Alcoholism is a progressive disease. There comes a point when
ever larger quantities of drugs or booze are required to maintain the illusion
of euphoria. Soon the drugs cease to produce a high and instead result in severe
depression and the inability to reason logically. Many drunks hit their bottom
when this happens. Many die. A lucky few are forced to start the rough road to
recovery.

Another reality Sheen can’t change is the fact that when drunks and
users are under the influence, they don’t mature normally. If a drunk started
drinking at age 17, the emotional and social maturity remains at 17 years old.
Sheen’s show, “Two and a Half Men,” is appropriately titled. Sheen is half a man
— lacking the behavioral maturity that normally comes with age.
Charlie Sheen is one of the unlucky ones, like Anna Nicole, Elvis Presley,
Michael Jackson, and many other stars. He has the means to indulge his addiction
and the money to enable him to continue to escape the consequences of his
destructive behavior. So far.

Charlie has publicly stated that being
sober is boring. It appears he does not have the will or desire to change his
behavior.  I doubt Charlie has the fortitude or character to ever admit he is
just a typical addict, which is the one essential step on the road to recovery.
I predict that when Charlie hits bottom, and he will, he will not be able to
bounce back.

Rasmussen just published a poll showing that 71% have an unfavorable
impression of the “Two and a Half Men” star. But that doesn’t keep Americans
from eagerly watching his life become a train wreck. Sheen’s oh so public
appearances titillate those that need someone to feel better than. Sheen
interprets the interest as support.  I’m embarrassed for him.
Like all of those who live their lives under the influence, the day is
coming when Charlie will hit his bottom. He will self-destruct and finally have
to make a choice that all addicts are eventually forced to make. Death or
sobriety. Personally, I think he has already decided.

The Muslim Students Association and the Jihad Network Undermining the United States on college campuses.

The Muslim Students Association and the Jihad Network

By FrontPage Magazine FrontPageMagazine.com | 3/31/2008

The following essay, adapted from the Introduction to this booklet, shows how, as early as the 1980s, operatives from the Muslim Brotherhood, parent group for al Qaeda and Hamas, formulated a blueprint for a “jihadist process” that would ultimately sabotage the “miserable house” of the United States. These Muslim Brotherhood operatives saw that the work of undermining the U.S. could be best accomplished by the use of front groups such as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim Students Association. But while CAIR was designed to work in the legal-cultural realm, posturing as another of the minority rights groups functioning in the public square, the MSA’s role was to be restricted to college campuses, where it would advance the cause of radical Islam and lead the effort to stigmatize Israel. Over the next several days, Front Page will publish profiles of individual chapters of the MSA on a variety of campuses around the country, showing how specifically they achieve the broad goals of the organization. – The Editors As revealed in documents seized by the FBI and entered as evidence in a Texas court, the Muslim Students Association is a legacy project of the Muslim Brotherhood.[1] The Brotherhood is an organization formed by a Hitler-admiring Muslim named Hasan al-Bannain Egypt in 1928.[2] It was designed to function as the spearpoint of the Islamo-fascist movement and its crusade against the West. The Brotherhood spawned al-Qaeda and Hamas.[3] Its doctrines make up the core of the terrorist jihad conducted by organizations such as Islamic Jihad, Hezbollah, Hamas and the government of Iran.[4] Its agendas have been clear since its creation: infiltration, subversion and global terror with world conquest as the goal. …To establish one Islamic state of united Islamic countries, one nation under one leadership whose mission will be to reinforce adherence to the law of Allah…and the strengthening of the Islamic presence in the world arena….The goal…is the establishment of a world Islamic state.[5] The first target was the “near enemy” – the Arab states that al-Banna and his followers felt had betrayed Islam. The United States – the “far enemy” – would not become a specific focus of the Brotherhood until many years later. The organization’s aspirations for world dominion seemed like a fantasy until the Iranian revolution of 1979. But that event showed the jihadists that they could conquer and govern a state and use it as a base for Islamic revolution elsewhere. There was no doubt who the enemy was. The Iranian leader Ayatollah Khomeni coined the phrase “Great Satan” and “Little Satan” to demonize the United States and Israel and mark them for destruction. “Destroying Western Civilization From Within” A formal plan for targeting America was devised three years after the Iranian revolution, in 1982.[6]. The plan was summarized in a 1991 memorandum written by Mohamed Akram, an operative of the Muslim Brotherhood. “The process of settlement” of Muslims in America, Akram explained, “is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process.’” This means that members of the Brotherhood “must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”[7] This memo surfaced in a Texas courtroom in the fall of 2007 after prosecutors introduced it as evidence in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation, once the largest Islamic charity in the United States.[8] The HLF was charged with funneling charitable donations to the jihad terrorists of the Islamic Resistance Movement, or Hamas, a Brotherhood organization that now controls the Gaza Strip. But the implications of this document go far beyond the Holy Land Foundation. It is actually a blueprint for the subversion of American society, and the eventual imposition of Islamic law in the United States. This would mean an institutionalized oppression of women, homosexuals, and religious minorities; the end of freedom of speech and the freedom of conscience; and the replacement of democracy by theocracy. U.S. authorities had been keeping an eye on Brotherhood operatives even before the memo surfaced. In 2001, U.S. officials accused Youssef Nada, a member of the organization, of funding terrorism.[9] Two years later, American investigators described Soliman Biheiri, a businessman in Virginia, as the Brotherhood’s U.S. “financial toehold.” Surveying the Islamic organizations that existed in the U.S. in 1991, Mohamed Akram declared in his memo: “The big challenge that is ahead of us is how to turn these seeds or ‘scattered’ elements into comprehensive, stable, ‘settled’ organizations that are connected with our Movement and which fly in our orbit and take orders from our guidance.” At the end of the document, Akram provided “a list of our organizations and the organizations of our friends” – apparently, those whom he believed were likewise dedicated to this great project of sabotaging the “miserable house” of American society. Surveying all these groups filled him with enthusiasm: “Imagine if they all march according to one plan!!!”[10] Akram contemplated a network of many overlapping groups, with personnel that move from one to the other and hold positions in different organizations simultaneously—an arrangement that resembles the Communist Party’s creation of interlocking front groups during the Cold War and complicates the task of understanding and tracking the pattern of their activities. The organizations Akram saw as advancing the Islamo-Fascist movement in America included, among many others, the Islamic Society of North America, the North American Islamic Trust, the Islamic Circle of North America, the International Institute for Islamic Thought, and the Islamic Association for Palestine – from which came the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) three years later. But perhaps the most important of these groups in terms of the long term infiltration and conquest the Brotherhood envisioned was The Muslim Students Association (MSA). The Stealth Jihad of the MSA Established in January 1963 at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, the Muslim Students Association of the United States and Canada, or MSA (also known as MSA National) currently has chapters on nearly 600 college campuses across North America.)[11] The relationship between MSA National and the individual university chapters is not a fixed hierarchy, but rather a loose connection. Thus the policies and views of the national organization may differ from those of some of the local chapters.) Stating that its mission is “to serve the best interest of Islam and Muslims in the United States and Canada so as to enable them to practice Islam as a complete way of life,”MSA is by far the most influential Islamic student organization in North America.[12] Founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood, MSA was named in Mohammed Akram’s 1991 memorandum as one of the Brotherhood’s likeminded “organizations of our friends” who shared the common goal of destroying America and turning it into a Muslim nation. These “friends” were described by the Brotherhood as groups that could help teach Muslims “that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands … so that … God’s religion Islam is made victorious over all other religions.”[13] From its inception, MSA had close links with the extremist Muslim World League, whose chapters’ websites have featured not only Osama bin Laden’s propaganda, but also publicity-recruiting campaigns for Wahhabi involvement with the Chechen insurgents in Russia. According to author and Islam expert Stephen Schwartz, MSA is a key lobbying organization for the Wahhabi sect of Islam.[14] MSA solicited donations for the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, whose assets the U.S. government seized in December 2001 because that organization was giving financial support to the terrorist group Hamas. MSA also has strong ties to the World Assembly of Muslim Youth.[15] Charging that U.S. foreign policy is driven by militaristic imperialism, MSA steadfastly opposes the American military incursions into both Afghanistan and Iraq.[16] The organization also follows the Arab propaganda line in the Middle East conflict and has condemned the anti-terrorist security fence that Israel has built in the West Bank as an illegal “apartheid wall” that violates the civil and human rights of Palestinians. An influential member of the International ANSWER steering committee, MSA maintains a large presence at ANSWER-sponsored anti-war demonstrations.[17] The pro-North Korea, pro-Saddam Hussein ANSWER is a front organization of the Marxist-Leninist Workers World Party.[18] Local chapters of MSA signed a February 20, 2002 document, composed by the radical group Refuse & Resist (a creation of the Revolutionary Communist Party’s) condemning military tribunals and the detention of immigrants apprehended in connection with post-9/11 terrorism investigations.[19] The document read, in part: “They the U.S. government are coming for the Arab, Muslim and South Asian immigrants. … The recent ‘disappearances,’ indefinite detention, the round-ups, the secret military tribunals, the denial of legal representation, evidence kept a secret from the accused, the denial of any due process for Arab, Muslim, South Asians and others, have chilling similarities to a police state.”[20] MSA has strongly opposed the Patriot Act, which it describes as an “infamous” piece of legislation. The organization’s chapters across the United States have similarly denounced virtually every other national security initiative implemented by the U.S. government since the 9/11 attacks. MSA chose not to endorse or participate in the May 14, 2005 “Free Muslims March Against Terror,” an event whose stated purpose was to “send a message to the terrorists and extremists that their days are numbered … and to send a message to the people of the Middle East, the Muslim world and all people who seek freedom, democracy and peaceful coexistence that we support them.”[21] But while it is possible to understand its political orientation from some of the positions it has taken on large national issues, the Muslim Students Association comes into sharper focus in the actions of the individual chapters that do its work every day on campuses across America. The following analysis of 18 separate campus chapters of MSA will make this clear.

Rosie O’Donnell, Charlie Sheen discover the TRUTH about 9/11!

by Bill Levinson

Hear Rosie O’Donnell talk about 9/11 (or gun control, or why Christians are no better than Islamofascists). Here is what O’Donnell’s and Charlie Sheen’s friends at the Loose Change web site say REALLY happened on 9/11. Before beginning, we will be the first to admit that this column lacks totally the decorum that one should show in debating an issue with a political opponent, but we do not recognize the producers of Loose Change, or their supporters like Rosie O’Donnell and Charlie Sheen, as “opponents.” We regard them as 9/11 deniers (in the same moral class as Holocaust deniers), and not worthy of the respect that a lady or gentleman of breeding accords a pet or domestic animal.

The central premise of Loose Change is that the United States Government was, at the very least, criminally negligent in allowing the attacks of September 11th, 2001 to occur.
However, when one looks deeper into the evidence, one might come to the startling conclusion that our own government might have been directly responsible for the attacks themselves.
Loose Change merely scratches the surface of information that points to a massive government cover-up regarding 9/11. We highly encourage you to take it upon yourself to research the events of 9/11 for yourself and come to your own conclusions.

We remind our readers that 9/11 Denial is the same thing as Holocaust Denial, except that it dismisses, explains away, or blames on someone else (as the Soviets blamed the Katyn Forest massacre on the Germans, when they did it themselves) four missing airplanes and two missing skyscrapers instead of six million missing Jews and three million missing Polish Catholics. Their association with Loose Change and 9/11 conspiracy theories therefore puts Rosie O’Donnell, Charlie Sheen, the producers of Loose Change, and MoveOn.org into the same class as Holocaust deniers. Having said that, we will now have some entertainment at these sideshow freaks’ expense.

Here is what her blog says, and it might as well have been copied from MoveOn.org’s Action Forum, which also was full of 9/11 conspiracy theories.

hold on folks, here we go

• The fires in WTC 7 were not evenly distributed, so a perfect collapse was impossible.
• Silverstein said to the fire department commander “the smartest thing to do is pull it.”
• Firefighters withdrawing from the area stated the building was going to “blow up”.
• The roof of WTC 7 visibly crumbled and the building collapsed perfectly into its footprint.
• Molten steel and partially evaporated steel members were found in the debris.

[WTC 7] contained offices of the FBI, Department of Defense, IRS (which contained prodigious amounts of corporate tax fraud, including Enron’s), US Secret Service, Securities & Exchange Commission (with more stock fraud records), and Citibank’s Salomon Smith Barney, the Mayor’s Office of Emergency Management and many other financial institutions.

Yes, Rosie, sure, Rosie, we understand, Rosie, and did you take your medications this morning?

Here is an animation we made for Rosie O’Donnell in 2000, when she was the keynote Spokespig for the Million Mom March. There is little doubt that she was indeed squealing like a stuck pig by 2001, while there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth in the offices of the Brady Campaign (formerly Handgun Control Inc.), but the key point is that the following animation shows what we thought of this phony as long ago as seven years ago. Since then, she has proven us right at every opportunity.


Re: “You should have used contraceptives.” Or gone with Plan B, as John Edwards’ blogger Amanda Marcotte suggested that Jesus’ mother should have done. In any event, Rosie, your Million Mom March has been retroactively Plan B-d and tossed in the ash bin of history where it belongs. We digress, however, and we must add that Rosie O’Donnell is not the only mindless Hollywood celebrity who thinks Elvis Presely, the Bush Administration, the Zionist Occupied Government, and/or space aliens (as opposed to Islamofascists chanting to Allah) perpetrated 9/11:

http://www.postchronicle.com/news/original/article_21270542.shtml

As far as the plane that crashed into the Pentagon – Sheen isn’t even certain that event even occurred. Red State.com notes that [Charlie] Sheen outlined his disbelief that the official story of what happened at the Pentagon matched the crash site’s evidence.

“Show us this incredible maneuvering, just show it to us. Just show us how this particular plane pulled off these maneuvers. 270 degree turn at 500 miles and hour descending 7,000 feet in two and a half minutes, skimming across treetops the last 500 meters.”

Pssssssst! Rosie and Charlie, we’d better help you out. You, along with the MoveOn community that has taken care to wear tinfoil hats 24/7 to keep out the mind control rays, know the TRUTH. Now here is material taken directly from MoveOn.org’s Action Forum, which was posted there by others who know the TRUTH about 9/11 and were not affected by the Bush Administration’s, Neocons’, and/or space aliens’ mind control rays.

[MoveOn.org Action Forum] Marvin Bush (brother) was head of Securicom, the firm in charge of security of the WTC until 9/11. Coincidence?
Prof. Steven Jones (BYU) has found residue of explosives used in controlled demolitions in samples of steel from WTC.
The official explanation of why the towers fell is that heat from jet fuel weakened the steel and the collapse of the upper floors caused a “pancake” effect and each floor collapsed from the weight of the floors above it crashing down. I’d believe that if the melting point of steel weren’t 1,000 degrees hotter than jet fuel can burn, if most of the fuel hadn’t exploded outside the building upon impact, and if the towers didn’t fall at free-fall speed, as if there were not 47 steel columns holding the floors up in the air. [Hey— did you know that steel softens and loses considerable structural strength long before it actually melts?]
NORAD, our national air-defense system stood down and did not intercept the hi-jacked planes. Our military was conducting several war-game excersises [sic] which simulated hi-jacked airliners being flown into buildings. This gave cover for the real-world terror plot to happen, allowing the FAA to think the hi-jacked planes were part of the wargames and not take action of their own.
Flights 93 and 77 were not even scheduled to fly on 9/11. None of the terrorists were even on the passenger manifests!

Ask questions, demand answers. Soon, it will be too late to freely ask these questions.

Yes, the TRUTH is out there, and you must wear your tinfoil hat 24/7 or your brain will be wiped clean with everyone else’s.

[MoveOn.org Action Forum] Another neo-con appeared today on C-Span to defend Bush and his spying program! I am Jewish and proud of it (despite everything) but I am sick of seeing those neo-cons posing as average joes on national television to defend Bush and his lies. Since they don’t have the decency or honesty to identify themselves by saying: “But you know, I am a Zionist and may be biased” and since most Americans can’t tell the difference and don’t have the courage to ask, maybe they should be forced to wear an Israeli flag on the lapel of their jackets. Isn’t it time to tell the American people the truth, i.e. that Jews control all the media.

And the Joooooooooooz control your minds as well, unless of course you wear a tinfoil hat to stop their Evil Mind Control Rays.

[MoveOn.org Action Forum] Fascism With Two Faces
Why bang our heads against the wall trying to decide which side would best combat terrorism? Both sides are just as incompetent. Both sides worked to erect the terrorism boogie man in the first place. Both sides supported the war on terrorism. The whole issue is just another strawman to set up and knock down.
What happened on 9/11/01 was obviously the controlled demolition of the WTC buildings, especially the third building which we are led to believe was just a fluke of nature. Both the Brownshirts and the Blackshirts are silent about this.
It is all about switching from the cold war mentality between the two superpowers to a different Boogie Man to fight to the death, as the cold war Boogie Man had fizzled out.

The point is taken from “1984″ by George Orwell, but he forgot to spell it out for us: Do not believe the obvious, Big Brother will tell us what is obvious.

[MoveOn.org Action Forum] First, you’re right about one thing: Bush is no Hitler. Hitler was a socialist and believed in something beside money. He did not dodge real military service and he believed at least in Germany which was a real nation and not a corporation like the US. Moreover, Hitler did not use depleted uranium and phosphorous to burn people alive. He did not condone the torture of prisoners “for fun” or “to relieve stress”.
[”I knew Adolf Hitler. Adolf Hitler was a friend of mine. And believe me, Mr. Bush, you are no Hitler!”]

Second, regarding 9/11, you obviously are ill informed. Let me refer you to a few videos and web sites that might open your Jewish eyes (no offense, I am Jewish myself and was once blind too).
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-5137581991288263801
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-2023320890224991194
http://www.911truestory.com or http://www.911truth.org
Aren’t you curious about why Bush was against a 9/11 Commission? Why no real police investigation was conducted? Why no black box, parts of planes like engines or bodies were recovered? Why whatever was recovered was quickly shipped out of the country? Why, in a way that is totally unprecedented and not repeated since, buildings burned and collapsed like paper houses even the building that wasn‘t hit by planes and where there were just two minor fires? Did you know that some of the alleged hijackers who supposedly died on the planes have since been seen? [In the UFO with Elvis, no doubt.] Don’t you ask why the volume of put options on Boeing and American Airlines were two or three times higher than usual just before the facts? Do you know that a huge amount of gold that was stored in one of the towers is still not accounted for? These are but a few of the many questions that remain unanswered.
I wish that before you publish a book about the Menace in Europe, you think about the real damage that this country has inflicted on mankind since it came into existence 200 plus years ago.

Don’t tell anyone, and keep wearing those tinfoil hats to keep the mind control rays out! (Meanwhile, some very nice men in clean white coats are coming to take you to a beautiful country resort where everything is peaceful and quiet, and there are diligent nurses to make sure you take your medications every day, along with soft padded rooms to make sure you do not inflict harm on yourselves…)
