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.

Private Jets are the paradigm of fossil fuel inequality and climate destruction.Donald Trump’s tax reform allowed individuals and companies to write off 100% of the cost of a new or used private jet against their federal taxes. For some plutocrats…Continue

Refugees! 100? 1,000? 100,000? 1,000,000,000. What will be the number of refugees as the world's oceans rise, storms increase, disruption of effective and efficient governments makes everything worse? How will agriculture change? Will there be enough food for the entire world's population and will the distribution be fair and equitable?

These are only a few of the questions that will arise overshadowing the small group of people gathered at the southern border of the U.S. fleeing their countries because of corruption, asset shortages, and wars. 

Trump's wall will do nothing to answer any of these questions. Refugees from inside the U.S. will overwhelm our government. How will those who live on islands survive? How will populations who live on ocean shores thrive? 

There must be no money spent on Trump's Wall! It is his version of "My wall is bigger than your wall;" shades of psychological dysfunction.

This makes me sick.

The rich used to pay higher taxes to the government. Now, the government pays the rich interest on a swelling debt, caused largely by lower taxes on the rich. Which means a growing portion of everyone else’s taxes are now paying the rich interest on those loans, instead of paying for government services everyone needs.

Agreed, Joan! If tRump weren't in his position of power, ignoring him entirely would have been the best course.

UGH ... there are somethings that just cannot be unseen!

Grinning Cat! I love your three cartoons!  I would ignore tRump if he did not cause so much pain and suffering.

The wall around Trump strikes me as the best idea yet, shades of The Cask of Amontillado.  All it lacks is Trump, pleading, "For the love of God, Montresor!" ... except that I'd bet Donnie doesn't even know who Edgar Allan Poe is!

Happy new year! And back to irregularly scheduled political cartoons: (click to embiggen)

(In Washington DC) “...Trump wanted these to remain open during the shutdown.” (signs on federal buildings) U.S. Department of Vacancies; Office of Scary Third-Rate Hacks; Department of Mixed Foreign Policy Signals; Environmental Degradation Agency; National Park Sewers

“It's our compromise... we build the wall around Donald Trump, thus strengthening our national security!” (Trump walled in behind his desk in the Oval Office)

(Hopefully the wall is RF shielded too, so he can't tweet!)

Elizabeth Warren, running for president in 2020: “The core of my message is EQUALITY!” Republican elephant-man: “So divisive.” (Tiny elephant in the margin: “She’s trying to divide me from my privileges!”)
