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.

Tain’t mine, Thomas.

One of the talking heads on RT sourced it to Mark Twain, saying Twain used third person, “It’s easier to fool people....”

I don’t like gossipy-sounding stuff and often change third person usages to first person.

Tom,

That sounds like your own quote.....

Yep, it’s easier to fool us than to convince us we’ve been fooled.

@Thomas Ronald Reagan may have been "The Great Communicator," but as president, he was badly problematic:

  • He's the one who effectively invited the Religious Reich into the Republican party.
  • He implemented "Supply Side (a.k.a. "Trickle Down") economics, which has never been demonstrated to work.
  • He presided over Iran-Contra, then conveniently forgot about it.
  • Reagan was style over substance, a massive and dangerous mistake.
  • As for the "soothsayer," Nancy is the one who indulged in astrology and other woo, and that didn't help matters.

Running this country is a serious matter.  We need someone in the front office who knows what the fuck they're doing, and not someone in the public eye who doesn't know shit from Shinola.

  Is it a tradition that every U.S. president since Reagan to sign a proclamation honoring MLK Day?

 I am having difficulty finding info on this.

Why hasn't Twitter banned or suspend Donald Trump from it's site?

We know his harmful, hurtful, hateful race inciting language and yet these social medias have not suspend him.....why?

Loren,

Not that I disagree with you, but someone could refute your argument by mentioning Ronald Reagan.....and I heard he had a soothsayer in his Oval Office...was that true?

"O" needs to keep her day job, & stay out of the political arena.
