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.

Huh! Funny. There seems to be a severe shortage of outrage against extremist Christian terrorists.

Right, corporations have taken over and, as Michael Moore(?) and others have said, corporations are legal sociopaths.

Check that line in the Declaration of Independence about our not changing the forms to which we are accustomed.

This article helped me understand, in part, why corporations have taken over.

...executive compensation has shifted dramatically since 1986. Company stock and stock options soared from 24% of compensation in the 1980s to 60% in the 2000s. As a result, executives today are more fixated on their corporation’s stock price and their capital gains rate.

To mystify and maybe piss off Democrats, suggest that business INCOME not be taxed.

(Note, I said INCOME.)

The reason? The amount companies pay in taxes becomes a part of the prices their customers pay. So, like the value-added taxes (VAT) levied in Europe, taxes on business income are a HIDDEN TAX.

‘Hidden’ means ‘We don’t know we are paying them.’

Perfect quote, Joan!

"The answers go to the remarkable success of anti-tax ideologues at marketing what they want you to believe, using the same techniques that sell breast-enlargement creams and male-enhancement pills. The trick is to appeal to what you wish were true and to avoid thinking clearly and logically."
