Politics, Economics, and Religion


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.

Bill Maher on Donald Trump

Bill Maher has spared nothing on his Real Time program in repeatedly eviscerating Drumpf in every last available way.  Those assessments are usually focused on one particular aspect of Drumpf's behavior or personality, but to borrow from…Continue

Thanks, Bertold, for sharing that!

George Takei: An Open Letter to America’s Young Voters

The acclaimed actor and activist writes about how our youth can lead the U.S. to a brighter, more tolerant future post-Trump.

[entire letter here]

Over the last 16 months, we collectively watched the tone of this campaign descend, from uncivil to outrageous to outright dangerous. Mr. Trump has played cynically to our darkest instincts, and he’s done much to draw us farther apart politically—even those within his own party. The forces he has rallied, and the sentiments he has stirred, are likely to infect our public discourse well past this election. He has led us down a course from which many worry we cannot readily turn back.

So, "Mexicans are rapists," wasn't a racist remark?

Besides, we already know that there's a whole lot of footage of him saying a variety of anti-African-American racial slurs on the set of The Apprentice.  It's just a question of who has leaked it to the Democrats, and when the Democrats will put it out there.

Will the tRump-worshippers' attempt at poisoning the well work beyond their bubble?

Alt right trolls planning a stroke of fakery to get Donald off the hook.

#MediasNextTrumpLie: Inside 4chan's pro-Trump spam campaign to derail the media

[from Tech.mic]

If you see #MediasNextTrumpLie trending on Twitter Friday, remember that "trending" is not synonymous with "fact-based."
4chan's /pol/ forum — a favorite hangout for anti-PC, Donald Trump-worshipping, alt-right internet trolls — is campaigning to get this hashtag trending, starting at noon Eastern. It's a response to an unsubstantiated rumor started in /pol/ that another bombshell Trump video is about to be released — this time, supposedly, featuring the Republican presidential nominee saying "a racist remark." #MediasNextTrumpLie is meant to derail the conversation and counter the news industry's supposed anti-Trump bias.

Just exactly what I need tonight. Dr. Seuss! Wish I still had all his books; they are nestled in their new home at Michelle's so she can read them to her five kids. 

I do not like him 
in my blouse.
I do not like him 
in the House.
I do not like this vain man.
I do not like him, Sane-I-am.

That's ugly and sleazy, and deceitful! The NM Rethugs can't find out whether registered Republicans actually voted that way on their secret ballots; but whether or not someone voted (and what party they've registered under) is public record.

In an election where finding a new low requires a back hoe, here's a new low.

GOP Mailer: We’ll Tell Your Neighbors If You Vote Democratic
The New Mexico Republican Party admits sending fliers to residents warning them that when “Democrats win the election and you didn’t do your part… your neighbors will know.”

It's getting ugly out there, and Nov. 8 isn't going to end it.

The Economist's cover nails it:

The Economist cover of October 15th-21st 2016. Cover story: “The debasing of American politics”. Illustration: Republican elephant logo, with its rear end a profile of Donald Trump's head, a quotation mark dropped beside it like a pair of turds, with the elephant eyeing it (suspiciously?).
