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.

Daniel, you may be our eyes and ears at the Reason Rally, our reporter on the scene. I hope the turnout is huge; I also hope you get to participate in discussions with "stars of the show".
If I were there, i would hound David Silverman and pick his brain about firebrand atheism. l would also enjoy sitting with Dilahunte to discuss debate strategy.
With whom would you enjoy a chat?

Breathe, Daniel ... just breathe!

Joan, I bought my tickets and made hotel reservations for the Reason Rally in June. Then I saw your post ant thought, Oh No! I reserved the wrong month! But, figured out the DAY of reason is not the same as the RALLY for reason. Whew!

Ahhh, the Republican bubble.  Bill Maher has known about it for a while:

Anthropomorphized elephants at the Republican National Convention, wearing '[heart] GUNS' and 'NRA' buttons, holding signs, 'MORE GUNS = LESS GUN VIOLENCE', 'GUN RIGHTS NOW', 'GUNS FOR almost EVERYBODY!' Off to the side, a Black young man notes to the Black young woman with him that the Republicans are in a 'BULLETPROOF ENCLOSURE...'

(A palatial 'RNC Republican Establishment' headquarters building in Washington DC, connected by walkways to its neighbors Super PACs Unlimited and Chamber of Commerce. Flanked by golden elephant statues, two politicians/tycoons are talking on the front steps.) 'Trump's painting us as a bunch of rich, arrogant elitists with nothing but disdain for the little guy...' 'Time to unleash a multi-million dollar ad blitz and scare those bone-headed rubes back into line!'

Great quotes, Ruth! (Especially Elizabeth Warren: "calling on Donald Trump... is like if your house is on fire, calling an arsonist.")

On the Republican Party in general:

Elephant painter adding footnotes to signs: NEVER EVER RAISE TAXES* *unless they are payroll taxes / MARRIAGE IS SACRED* *unless Newt needs another divorce / BIG GOV'T IS BAD* *except the military part / GET GOV'T OFF OUR BACKS* *and into our uteruses / DEFEND THE FAMILY* *unless they're illegal immigrants / BE CIVIL* *unless you're Rush or Ann Coulter / (more signs in the background) / Caption: The Principled* Pachyderm / (the paint dripping from his brush splattered onto the ground in the shape of an asterisk)(click to embiggen)
