Politics, Economics, and Religion

Religion has so many connections to political and economic beliefs, there needs to be a place to identify linkages, problems, goals, options, action plans and evaluation criteria.

What is the purpose of life?

An eternal question, what is the purpose of life?, occupied philosophers’ thoughts throughout history. Stone pictographs reveal even primitive peoples reflected on this query. Each one has the capacity to define his or her personal thinking about politics, economics and religion.

So Drumpf wants us to be patriotic?  He'd better fasten his fuckin' seat belt!  Try a few of these quotes on for size, Donnie:

It is the first responsibility of every citizen to question authority.
― Benjamin Franklin

One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.
― Martin Luther King Jr.

Blind belief in authority is the greatest enemy of truth.
― Albert Einstein

To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.
― Theodore Roosevelt

Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
-- Thomas Jefferson (allegedly)

And there's LOTS more where those came from!

Many of the founding fathers would have thought so, at any rate.

Somehow "patriotic devotion" ought to be an oxymoron.

Well, the wording of this proclamation isn't at all creepy:

Since the Trump administration loves citing “ALTERNATIVE FACTS”... can we get an ALTERNATIVE PRESIDENT? (Occupy Democrats)

(Left to right: Donald Trump, Reince Priebus, Kellyanne Conway) Blather. Reince. Repeat.

That's the point of it, Bertold. Well put. His blatant self-inflating lies scream "Dictator!" and "Failed State!" to anyone with half a brain.

Framing the Denier-in-Chief as The Joker is so apropos.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan yesterday

From the New York Times, one of the scarier sentences I've seen lately:

Disinformation was for dictatorships, banana republics and failed states.

That past tense verb is a pip, to say the least.

Yet there it was on Saturday, emanating from the lectern of the White House briefing room — the official microphone of the United States — as Mr. Trump’s press secretary, Sean Spicer, used his first appearance there to put forth easily debunked statistics¹ that questioned the news media’s reporting on the size of the president’s inaugural audience (of all things).

Also worth repeating - Loren's reply:

"ANYONE who thinks I'm going to lay down and play dead while the orange nightmare runs amok doesn't know me at all!

And speaking of orange nightmares, maybe we should start associating Drumpf with this guy:"
(Gossamer, the big hairy orange monster in Loony Tunes cartoons)
