Third Eyewitness To San Bernardino Shooting Says It Wasn’t ‘Terror Couple’ Who Carried Out Attack


Earlier this month, the attorneys for the Farook family maintained that they do not believe the suspects are the ones who carried out the attacks in question.

Several eyewitnesses and family of witnesses and victims initially said that three athletic Caucasian men had been responsible for carrying out the attacks. Police immediately banned them from speaking with the media.

Just days ago, another eye-witness in the office came forward and said that in spite of what the law enforcement and mainstream media narrative is saying, the people who carried out the attack where very athletic, large, Caucasian men, who were three – not two – in number. Farook’s wife, it should be remembered weighed approximately 90lbs.

Could my neighbors be in federal trouble?

My wife and I dealing with the two down stairs from our condo. Right inside the security door which is used for all 4 apatments there is a mat reading Merry Christmas. My Wife would have been fine with Season Greetings or Happy Holidays. My wife has left letters explaining her objections. But those have been rip down and the mat remains.

Today my wife received a package from amazon of stuff she ordered ON the package was written Merry Christmas and Christmas underline. We found the package on the steps to the condo. In order for the mailman to get in the buzzard needs rung or you need a key.

If one of these neighbors wrote this on my wife's package did they deface postal property? Can they be in trouble?

Isn't this how it started 80 years ago in Germany?


Federal judge rules Muslim-free zone at Florida gun store fails to harm Muslims

A federal judge has dismissed a complaint filed by a Muslim advocacy organization claiming that an Inverness gun shop violated the Civil Rights Act by declaring itself a "Muslim-free zone".

The suit had demanded an injunction against Florida Gun Supply to prohibit it from discriminating against Muslims and others on the basis of religion. The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) filed the suit against Florida Gun Supply in July after the store's owner Andy Hallinan enacted a Muslim-free zone


Please let me out now.

"Who else has lighted tree but "christians" Christmas tree?"

I came across this DU thread http://www.democraticunderground.com/10027419686 and I was completely shocked by some of the responses.

There are Yuletide trees.


Saturnalia used festival of lights

In Roman mythology, Saturn was an agricultural deity who was said to have reigned over the world in the Golden Age, when humans enjoyed the spontaneous bounty of the earth without labor in a state of innocence. The revelries of Saturnalia were supposed to reflect the conditions of the lost mythical age, not all of them desirable. The Greek equivalent was the Kronia.[3]

Although probably the best-known Roman holiday, Saturnalia as a whole is not described from beginning to end in any single ancient source. Modern understanding of the festival is pieced together from several accounts dealing with various aspects.[4] The Saturnalia was the dramatic setting of the multivolume work of that name by Macrobius, a Latin writer from late antiquity who is the major source for information about the holiday. In one of the interpretations in Macrobius's work, Saturnalia is a festival of light leading to the winter solstice, with the abundant presence of candles symbolizing the quest for knowledge and truth.[5] The renewal of light and the coming of the new year was celebrated in the later Roman Empire at the Dies Natalis of Sol Invictus, the "Birthday of the Unconquerable Sun," on December 25.[6]


Lights--In the past fires and candles and modern day of LEDs in trees and houses is basically an ongoing human hope and desire. In older times the hope that the "Gods" would bring back the sun and good growing seasons and would not let humans die.

Perhaps to some non-Christians/neo-pagans/wiccans/ atheists lights on a tree is hope and good feeling for humanity and hope for a better new year.

Just a thought.

My wife is Wiccan she has "Christmas trees" A theme tree in every room in her house. The Living room tree is a "Yule Tide tree" Has all white lights and hand written roll scrolls which at midnight are removed by guests and those scrolls contain the thoughts and good wishes of the hostess for her guests.

All the trees are fake because she believes live ones should stay in the world.
