What the bloody fuck? It's like the basement of the Warren Jeff's compound has a trapdoor that just opened up and dumped us 10 or so levels down in depravity. This is some truly disturbing shit.

So I am rewatching Escaping Polygamy ahead of the new season premiering later this week. One thing that has been on my mind as I learn more and more about this group - they're supposedly wildly wealthy, but the wives and children largely live in squalor and/or support themselves. Where is all the money going? Are the leaders living large in a mansion somewhere? IDK, y'all help me with this.

I suspect it's all going to the leaders.

I imagine that much of it goes to the leaders. The rest is also split up among such a large number of people that even if it looks like a living wage, it isn't.

Don't they do something similar to what Warren instituted before he went off the grid and got caught...send all the money they make up the ladder and are then doled back out what they "need"?  They supposedly own basically every major business in the area, one interview I read they guy mentioned every contractor hated the FLDS (Kingstons) because they could underbid the jobs so low.  They bring in the boys, pay them nothing, and pocket all the funds made.

I saw that interview. One of the escapees said they used young boys that they never paid so they could under bid every other contractor in the area. They had the numbers to do it too. And the government turns a blind eye because all of the local government is bought. IDK but I knew FLDS was building my house, I would report it. I wouldn't want a house built by 10 year olds.

I watched one episode of Escaping Polygamy. It was when they were trying to get the 14 yo sister who said she was part of a suicide pact. I can't believe the police or government won't do anything. The sister said she was being abused. There's also a lot of sexual abuse going on. This shit is sick.

@OnceUponATime, you dont have to tell me, but I am going to ask why you downvoted this post?

Just curious, I see nothing offensive here.

No one owes anyone an explanation for a downvote.  They are saying that they disagree with something someone wrote or possibly find it inappropriate.  "Calling someone out" for a downvote is really not appropriate either.

The Kingstons pay their members in scrip that can only be used at Kingston owned stores. As others have stated, the real money goes to the leaders, and everyone else gets what amounts to Monopoly money. The fact that everyone knows this is going on and does nothing about it is mind boggling.

I assume the fear of their numbers and pull have a lot to do with that.   If what happens there is anything akin to small town "justice" I feel for anyone living amongst them who are not actually associated.

I've more or less given up on the Duggars as their Counting On show was as exciting as watching paint dry. I needed a new bunch of religious wack jobs to follow so I watched the season premier of Escaping Polygamy tonight. The Kingston Clan was featured. 

Anyone else watch tonight?

I agree the new Duggar show is worse than watching golf, I'm over the Bates too. I will look On Demand for Escaping Polygamy, FLDS was my first crazy religious rabbit hole I went down a few years back.

I did. The 18 year old sister that was rescued squicked me out a bit , saying she was in love with her 28 year old first cousin. Better than a 40 something uncle I guess.

FLDS was also my gateway fundie drug. I never got into the Duggars or Bates. I like my fundies WAY crazier than that.

I agree with Andrea that she sees Michael as "freedom". Once she's out that relationship may fizzle, especially if he stays in the Order. Jennifer has had so few choices that she is holding on to the one she made. Hopefully that will change as she's further and further out from the cult.

      I've somehow invested in this year's Miss Universe pageant. After watching the prelims my favorites are: 
      1. Jamaica (naturally lol but she's doing well)
      2. Haiti (love her energy) 
      3. Great Britain 
      4. Bahamas 
      5. Canada (a beauty! absolutely stunning!)
      6. Japan (adorable) 
      7. Cameroon (also adorable w/ an amazing costume) 
      8. Myanmar (seems sweet)
      9. Vietnam 
      10. Thailand 
      11. USA (I'm rooting for everybody black lol) 
      Not a fan of these but I think they'll place: South Africa, Mexico, Columbia, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Peru, Australia, Denmark, Ireland, Dom Rep. 
      If they make Zozi (the current Ms. Universe) give the crown to a white girl from Pretoria, I will scream.

      Aren't I too old to forget to eat lunch?  
      So now....do eat a late salad and be cranky before bed because I want dinner and it's too late to eat or....do I tough out the afternoon cranky at my desk and eat dinner?  
      The dilemma is real.

      So excited, happy. Finally I got my vaccination appointment. The first on the 26th of May , the second on my birthday.  Staying at home is no option, because I work in healthcare, with very close patientcontact. (I make mammograms). Hopefully I can relax a bit more after my vaccination and let the anxiety go.
