Brumalia (Roman Kingdom)
Influenced by the Ancient Greek Lenaia festival, Brumalia was an ancient Roman solstice festival honoring Bacchus, generally held for a month and ending December 25. The festival included drinking and merriment. The name is derived from the Latin word bruma, meaning "shortest day" or "winter solstice". The festivities almost always occurred on the night of December 24.
For those of you devoid of any knowledge relating to Ancient Greece Greek religion was…
I would like to give thanks for all of those that have made this comfortable life possible. For all who had the ability to forego the dogma of their day and think freely. For these are the people who have made possible our freedom from oppression, our freedom from persecution our freedom from a primitive existence. True freedom only happens when the mind is free from preordained modes of thought. Embrace your mode of thought no matter who may condemn you. Ask yourself if the way you think…Continue

On Fresno`s County`s proposed “tent city” jail plan
To deem a person such a threat to society for the substances that person CHOOSES to consume and to lock that person up, behind walls, behind bars, behind chain link fence, knowing all the while that there will come a day in the near future that the gates will swing open and that person is no longer considered a threat to society with not one single minute of that time spent on correction is absurd. Then to assert that somehow, by…
It should be a crime to teach children anything other than reason. A child has a few years in which their thinking pattern is laid down for life and to corrupt that process is sentencing that child to a life of ignorance. We wonder why places like China and other eastern civilizations have begun an explosion of knowledge. Has anyone made the connection between not teaching kids crap and those kids studying math and science. I use the word crap but would rather substitute Jesus or any other…Continue
While watching our President give a speech at IPAC i am forced to say F*** Israel.
There will never be security for people who believe in ghosts, spirits, god(s), or any other form of voo doo. You will always be prey for some entity you deem more powerful than yourself.
I fear no man, no god. I enjoy a security that can only come from a mind that thinks freely.
After watching a report on the crazy koran burning pastor i am forced to ask this question. Why is nobody talking about the FACT that the burning of a koran is no different than the burning of a comic book or the burning of a piece of wood. There might be a few more BTU's generated from a koran but all in all no adverse affects. It sickens me that these people on TV that report the news fail to include any dialog on this. Lindsey Gram also put forth comments on changing the 1st amendment to…Continue

Letter to Editor;
The proliferation of roadside shrines has got to be viewed for what it is (littering).If a person was to throw from a moving vehicle onto the shoulder of the (county owned road) several plastic, glass and paper items we as a society would expect that person to be issued a ticket for littering. Yet people continue to STOP their vehicles on the…Continue
