  • Take religion. Remove God. Add #resistance. Meet The Satanic Temple.

    The Satanic Temple might be the religion for 2017. On a quiet New England street, just steps from a yoga studio, a giant wicker sculpture of Baphomet — a demonic entity often associated with Satan — looked down on passersby. The statue is perched upon a historic colonial-style house, filled with occult and diabolical-themed art. And that house is the national headquarters of The Satanic Temple, a national organization that’s equal parts performance art group, leftist activist organization, and anti-religion religious movement. The house, which opened to the public in 2016, doubles as an art gallery. Each room is filled...

    FULL TITLE: Salem witch trial victims are honored in two different communities on the 325th anniversary of the tragedy Two communities in Massachusetts where 20 people suspected of witchcraft were put to death in 1692 honored the victims on Wednesday. The ceremonies in Salem and Danvers comes 325 years to the day when Sarah Good, Elizabeth Howe, Susannah Martin, Rebecca Nurse and Sarah Wildes were hanged at a site in Salem known as Proctor's Ledge. It was the first of three mass hangings at the spot. The 20th victim was crushed to death. Salem unveiled a memorial at noon on...
  • Scott Walker says he's open to tolling

    The Wisconsin State Journal ^ | May 31, 2017 | Mark Sommerhauser
    BELOIT — Gov. Scott Walker on Tuesday signaled he’s open to charging tolls on Wisconsin’s Interstates, but with a key condition: linking it to a reduction in the state’s 30.9-cent-per-gallon gas tax. Walker also said an impasse over the state’s next transportation budget risks costly delays to billion-dollar highway projects now under construction. That includes a $1.2 billion expansion of Interstate 39-90 from the Madison area to the Illinois state line. The Interstate formed the backdrop for Walker’s remarks in a press conference at a Beloit rest stop. Republicans who control the state Assembly have proposed seeking federal approval to...
  • New message on Winston-Salem billboard: 'Much Ado About Nothing'

    **SNIP** A billboard last month went up reading, "Real men provide. Real women appreciate it." That's now been replaced by a longer message titled "Much ado about nothing" that mocks those who took offense to the original message. It goes on to say "A social experiment that brought forth those so immersed in their own insecurity that in the mirror they could only see an angry victim of their incorrect interpretation of a silly billboard -- Bless their hearts."

    It’s a hot summer night, and leaders of the Satanic Temple have gathered in the crimson­-walled living room of a Victorian manse in this city renowned for its witch trials in the 17th century. They’re watching a sepia-toned video, in which children dance around a maypole, a spider crawls across a clown’s face and eerie, ambient chanting gives way to a backward, demonic voice-over. The group chuckles with approval. They’re here plotting to bring their wisdom to the nation’s public elementary school children. They point out that Christian evangelical groups already have infiltrated the lives of America’s children through after-school...

    Just a note: We often think of the men who conducted the Salem witch trials. They were the judges and jurors. But they weren't the accusers. The accusers were a nine year old girl, an eleven year old girl, and a twelve year old girl. It's important to remember that. Young people, especially young girls in a male-dominated society, may feel powerless. And may feel more acutely any ambient paranoia in a community. Immature people of all genders and ages might be prone to this. Lodging a hysterical accusation suddenly makes the powerless powerful, and the marginally noticed suddenly the...

    I invite FReepers to discuss what they know about Salem Media and Salem Cimmunications. From what I can find out, they are owned by the GOPe and in turn own Mark Levin, Beck and Erikson and probably Limbaugh. It is chilling to see our "heroes@ cheer on our disenfranchisement. The conservative treehouse is a small venue, but would appear to be on top of this issue.
  • How 'Bewitched' Helped Salem Embrace Its Grim Past

    How did Salem, Massachusetts become a Halloween destination? For centuries, the New England town avoided any association with its infamous Puritan ancestors, who executed 19 people under suspicion of practicing witchcraft. The surprising answer, author Stacy Schiff writes for The New York Times, has a lot to do with the sitcom "Bewitched." These days, Salem is rife with kitschy witches and Halloween attractions. But before the late 20th century, town citizens rarely acknowledged the Puritan trials. When playwright Arthur Miller visited Salem to research "The Crucible" in 1952, locals refused to help him. "You couldn't get anyone to say anything...

    President Barack Obama’s Department of Veterans Affairs has banned employees at its facility in Salem, Virginia, from saying “Merry Christmas” to veterans.It started as a broader ban that included Christmas trees. Federal law recognizes Christmas as an official federal holiday (5 U.S.C. § 6103) and provides federal employees with a paid day off to celebrate the Christian belief in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ.Every year, a White House Christmas Tree and a Capitol Christmas Tree grace those two respective buildings in Washington D.C., and a National Christmas Tree is also officially lighted outdoors for the public to enjoy during that time...
  • Jeb Bush vows to come out swinging in next U.S. Republican debate

    Autographing photos of himself on the campaign trail, U.S. Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush held up one that showed him heavier by 40 pounds (18 kilograms) and another of the slimmed-down campaign model. "That's a low-energy picture," Bush, 62, chuckled after the portly version was thrust into his hands in Salem, New Hampshire, site of a town hall event. "This is a high-energy picture," he said of the skinnier Jeb photo. The anecdote encapsulates Bush's challenge as he prepares for Wednesday's second debate of Republicans seeking their party's presidential nomination: How to show more energy without losing his calm, steady-at-the-helm...

    Dear Mr. Trump, look, we’re not smart – we just know the game, we’ve studied it for years. As such we are able to predict the moves of the players before they visibly display them. Politics is an industry, a business – an old business; and like all industries there are leaders within that industry who are more influential than others. Those leaders or industry directors follow the same playbook whenever their grip on political power is threatened. Right now the directive is to gather information to use against the vulgarian insurgency. In politic-speak it’s called “opposition research”. Part of...
