From a site about Yule in Iceland, one of the last European countries blistered by Christianity:    
“In early Medieval times, the Yule feasts … lasted for several days and included dancing, games and sports and other entertainment.
 “In some areas the local folk gathered together and held a joint feast … called Jólagleði, Yule Joy.
“These feasts continued until the Reformation….”

I feel cheated!  Imagine stomping around in Medieval Iceland around this time of year.  

For days you rumba with one big, happy glob of people, laughing and pigging out on fine food and drink, singing and dancing all day and into the night; playing cards, chess, spin the bottle, downhill skiing and other snow games; watching plays, puppet shows, a sword fight or two, acrobatics, jesters juggling jugs or tickling your funny bone in a few dozen other ways.  

And of course all this is free, and you get off work for two weeks to enjoy it (with pay). 

And what did we trade this in for?  The War-God holidays: Christmas, Hanukah and Kwanza. 

Christmas could be the worst: weeks of blood, sweat and tears agonizing over gifts, menus and decorations.  And this angst ends in what?  At best, a one-day snooze fest with people you share zilch in common with (I can almost hear your Uncle Albert snoring on a couch in front of the Disney Gang). 

Well, soldier on, dearies.  Hopefully some day we’ll ditch the War-God holidays and bring back the old joy-filled Yuletide festivals.  May your Solstice and Yuletide season (against all odds) be filled with dancing, laughter, and a kiss or two under the mistletoe. 

Hugs and blessings,

SANDY hook 2

America’s Guide Book for Living: What It Says about Children: 

The god Nick worships said, “Take your son Alex, the son you love dearly, knife him to death, and then roast his body over a fire.” Genesis 22:2
So Nick took a kitchen knife, and got ready to slit his son’s throat.  Genesis 22:10
The god Brittany worshiped thought she was bad, so he killed her.   Genesis 38:7

The god Andy worshipped told him that if he didn’t do what he said, he would kill Andy’s son Logan.  Exodus 4:23
The god Amanda worshipped got mad, and so he went through the city she lived in and killed the oldest child in each household, including her three-year-old, Madison.  Exodus 12:12
The god Claire worships waited until midnight last year, then killed the oldest child in each household in her country.  Exodus 12:29

And this is just the first two books out of 66!  There’s lots more where this came from!!!

SANDY hook

men’-tal ill’-ness.  noun.  Professing shock and outrage when your society -- which harbors a rule book for living* that chugs on and on about almost nothing but slaughter and violence – violently slaughters 20 innocent children. 

men'-tal health.  noun.  Switching from one's primitive, violent desert gods to a loving Great Mother Goddess.  
*This rule book is known as the "BibleKoranTorah" (although some see these as three separate books, they’re really only one book – about a primitive desert dude named Abraham). For a handy-dandy “short list” of cruelty in the BibleKoranTorah, go HERE.

Mention Death, and western society morphs into a gigundo ostrich with its head encased in cement.  

I suspect our pre-patriarchal Goddess ancestors were on friendlier terms with death.  They weren’t afraid to look death in the eye.  They weren't afraid to talk to their kids about death.  They weren't afraid to talk about it whilst slurping and smacking their lips over a bowl of mutton soup at the corner ale-house taverna. 

Heide Goettner-Abendroth thinks fairy tales contain hidden messages from our pre-patriarchal ancestors.  In The Goddess and Her Heros*, Heide says most fairy tales formerly contained a death/rebirth part.  Over time, however, that part was stripped away.   
* "Heros" is a Greek word.  A heros was one who entered into sacred marriage with the Goddess (at certain times and in certain societies, of course).

Uh-huh, they are.  It’s like Xians are taking a planet-sized pencil eraser and rubbing out the sum of the animal kingdom and the human species both, from the face of the Earth. 

How?  By pooh-poohing science.  Just like they did at the end of the Roman Empire -- a really cool move that pitched Europe smack dab into the Dark Ages.  

From our fabulous body of scientific knowledge we’re learning that the gunk the Koch Brothers and others are belching into our air is slashing and tearing at our human ability to survive on earth.

But Xians will have none of this.  The poor babies’ brains have been so scrubbed clean of sense that they insist scientists are the devil incarnate, and that you can’t trust a word they (scientists) say.  Evolution?  Never happened.  Global warming?  A hoax.  Raped women?  They don’t get pregnant.  And the earth was created not in many billions of years, but in a mere 6000.  

The Bible tells them so. 

Soon they’ll be saying – as they said after crushing the science of Phythagoras, Hippocrates and Archimedes – that maggots aren’t born of flies, but spring spontaneously out of rotting meat. 

And now – surprise, surprise -- American students rank 17th in science among industrialized nations (didn’t we used to rank #1?).   With Xians trumpeting to our kids that scientists are as valuable as maggots, cockroaches and termites, who’d want to study science?  Duh!

So Xians are erasing us by smacking down our hard-won body of scientific knowledge and scientific processes.  Big War going on, Christians on one side, science on the other.   And until we start debunking the Bible, the Xians are going to win the war. 

Dark Ages II, anyone?   No?  Then get out there and spread the word: The Bible is mostly a bunch of bunk.

It’s really very, very simple 

In a murder mystery, how does Mr. Monk finger the killer?  By scanning the horizon for the dude with both motive and opportunity, of course.

And the dudes with both motive and opportunity to murder Mother Earth?  Charles and David Koch of Kansas, U.S.A.

MOTIVE?: The good brothers run a gas & oil company, “Koch Industries.”   Koch spews oil waste into the air.  This spewing is killing Mother Earth.  If the Kochs had to stop spewing, they’d lose billions -- and if Charlie and Davie were forced to lose even one measly million, they’d cry crocodile tears large enough to run a hydroelectric power plant until Christmas.     

OPPORTUNITY?: Charlie and Davie are multi-billionaires, and some of the richest men in America.*  They use their billions like a hammer to “buy” (or scare to death) U.S. politicians and judges.  Charlie and Davie are, therefore, effectively running the United States government. 

SOLUTION?:  I have no idea.  I’ve ID’d the killers; someone else is going to have to bring them to justice. 

BOYCOTT?: However, if you’re a boycotter, go HERE to identify some of the hundreds of products Charlie and Davie produce and sell all over the world. 

*According to Wikipedia, In 2011, Forbes called it [Koch Industries] the second largest privately held company in the United States (after Cargill), with an annual revenue of about $98 billion,[5][6][7] down from the largest in 2006.”

Mother's Getting GRUMPY (Frankenstorm)

Sitting here on the East Coast waiting to be blown to bits by Frankenstorm as they’re now calling it, I’m thinking the Great Mother is certainly getting grumpy these days. 

Under a full moon, three different storm systems are rolling in from three different directions to form one gigundo wake-up call.  

I’d run home to my family 900 miles west, but this Monster is threatening to swallow them too. 

Nope, once She has something to say, there’s no hiding from Mother. 

Some are saying Frankenstorm is Mother Earth’s revenge for Obama/Romney’s snubbing Her during the Presidential campaign. Neither candidate has mentioned global warming once. 

But Mother’s only trying to get our attention.  She’s worried about us. It’s not Her being hurt by the filth pumping daily into our air, water and soil, it’s us. Maybe in fact she’s having a humongous crying fit.  Maybe She’s weeping as She watches our species disappear from Her heart, blood and body. 

I suspect the Goddess wants us to wrestle the Earth out of the hands of the fossil-fuel barons now wrecking it.  We can start by making them pay to spew their garbage into our air.  I don’t know about you, but I have to pay to have my garbage carted away, so why should the Koch Brothers get to pump billions of cubic tons of their garbage into your air for free? 

Although President Obama tried to make the Koch’s pay to put their garbage out, the wily Kochs used their billions to sneak Tea-Party nuts into Congress, and the nuts lead a charge against Obama. 

So to start, let’s vote all those Tea nuts out of Congress, and Obama back into the White House. 

Dear American readers, the very least you can do is vote. Hopefully Frankenstorm will dry up in time for you to do just that.  

With love,
