Samoan mythology as a subset of Polynesian mythology will be the subject of this blog post. I have previously covered various deities of the Hawaiian islands and in the future I will address the gods of the other Polynesian island groups.
*** FOR THE GODS OF OTHER POLYNESIAN ISLAND GROUPS –
BELLONA ISLAND AND RENNELL ISLAND – CLICK HERE
GEGE – A deity who specialized in ridding the Samoan island of Upolu of demons. Operating out of his base at Falealili he roamed the island, met demons in contests of magic and transformed them into stone. Countless unusual rock formations on Upolu are said to be the petrified bodies of the demons overcome by Gege.
PAPA – In other Polynesian island groups Papa is the Earth goddess. In the Samoan pantheon she is Continue reading

This week we got another reminder that the Democratic and Republican party office-holders consider themselves “the ruling class” and the rest of us mere peasants. In Congress there was at last some bi-partisan cooperation – BOTH parties now admit what a disaster Obamacare is and introduced legislation TO EXEMPT THEMSELVES AND THEIR STAFF MEMBERS FROM IT!
If Obamacare is so wonderful why do they want exempted from it themselves and why do they feel it will attract quality employees to their staffs to have the PERK of being exempt from it? Sounds like those demagogues hate Obamacare as much as the rest of us do and as much as EVERY doctor that I and everyone I know has spoken to hate it.
Let’s look at other reasons why Liberals and Conservatives are the same kind of people:
Liberals think they are the country’s official “intellectuals” and that they possess “the one true world view”. They feel that this qualifies them to use the apparatus of government to rule every aspect of our lives. Dissenters from this view are so routinely labeled “racists” and/or “uneducated” that such labels have become virtually meaningless.
Conservatives think they are the Continue reading

IT’S WONDERFUL BEING A GIRL (1966) – This 22 minute educational film about menstruation features one of my all-time favorite lines from female hygiene shorts. That line is “You CAN have fun while you’re menstruating!” To me that remark is even more fun than the line from Molly Grows Up which goes “Menstruating girls should avoid square dancing.” (That’s good advice for anybody, really, even if they’re not menstruating.)
Mom is about to introduce her 12 year old daughter Libby to the facts about Continue reading
