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.

JOAN, I DON’T TELL PEOPLE I TOLD THEM SO.

You are a Big Banger for the same reason many people are theists:

1) you need an answer (though it won’t help you pay the rent),

2) you don’t have the knowledge required to question authority,

3) you don’t have the evidence to draw your own conclusions,

so you accept what self-proclaimed authorities say.

I MIGHT HOWEVER SAY “IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME.” : )

Comment by Joan Denoo on Thursday

Tom, I am a Big Banger with eyes and ears open to all the information I can understand. There very well may come a time when I will say, "Tom, you told me so!"

Grinning Cat, "6,000 to 10 in favor of net neutrality should get some notice. 

Also, there are more cleaners than there are Congresspeople. We are of the sort that do not stand on protocol or sometimes even good manners. The French Revolution made a difference; so can the U.S. Revolution be heard!

Joan, why do well-educated scientists surprise you with their belief in a superhuman power?

You are well-educated, but your having no evidence for the Big Bang doesn’t keep you from occasionally wandering into the delusions of Big Bang cosmology.

You and I and those scientists and Loren have compartments in our minds into which we can shovel stuff that’s not compatible with the stuff we shovel into other compartments.

Worried congressmen at the steps of the Capitol Building, one saying, 'NO BIG DEAL. IT'S ONLY THE HOUSE CLEANERS', seeing ten women with mops, brooms, and a duster, the group labeled NEW CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATES

Comment by Grinning Cat on Thursday

Our calls and letters are important! My congressman is Democratic; I'll still call.

Yesterday Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) tweeted that a colleague's phone calls were running 6,000 to 10 in favor of net neutrality.

Grinning Cat, Called and wrote to Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers.

Comment by Joan Denoo on Thursday

I knew my Republican Representative would not uphold net neutralty. I called and made as strong an argument as I could. She, Cathy McMorris Rodgers, votes the party line. 

Comment by Grinning Cat on Wednesday

The Senate just voted to uphold net neutrality this afternoon, with three Republicans, Susan Collins of Maine, John Kennedy of Louisiana and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, joining Democrats.

The other Republicans voted to represent the interests of large internet service providers like AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon, who'll be able to charge extra for, throttle, and even block and censor specific sites and apps, over the 86% of voters (including 82% of Republicans!) who support net neutrality.

In other words, most Republican senators are fine with this: (click to enlarge)

Now the battle moves to the House. Call and write your Representatives!

"I had always hoped that this land might become a safe and agreeable asylum to the virtuous and persecuted part of mankind, to whatever nation they might belong."

~ George Washington - (1732-1799) Founding Father, 1st US President, 'Father of the Country' - Source: 1788, letter to Francis Van der Kamp
