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.

Joseph:  Trump in a prison outfit would be even more hilarious.

Comment by Joseph P on Saturday

And yes, I know that I'm seriously over-analyzing what was a throwaway comment from you, but once I was halfway through writing that, I figured to hell with it.

@Tom

It runs both ways.  Sometimes people's sexual inclinations are a direct parallel with their behavior outside of bed.  Sometimes it's a reversal.

I think that the role flipping is a minority occurrence, if anything.  It's just particularly noteworthy when it happens, since people find it amusing.  So, we stress it more, in popular media.

If I had to throw out random possibilities, I would guess that there could be something like a urination fetish going on with Trump, or something along those lines.  Going from what I've encountered, the urination thing is mostly a specific form that a humiliation fetish can take, rather than a fixation on the material, itself.  Although, of course, there could be some who focus on the material and aren't as influenced by the humiliation aspects.

I haven't exactly done a thorough polling of that community, since I don't really want to get that involved with them.  The whole bodily-fluid/bodily-waste thing is really not my scene.  Blood doesn't bother me, since it's a fairly clean fluid, and if you're already having sex with someone, then once everyone's tested, you're fine ... although it doesn't do anything for me.

Any other bodily-fluids, though?  Yeah, not happening.

It's sort of like the furry/bestiality crossover.  I know there's a whole lot of overlap, in terms of people who are into both, and while furries amuse me on a conceptual level, I really don't want to look too deeply into the crossover between that and bestiality, because ... eww.

Anyway, given how much of a kick that Trump got humiliating Christie and Romney, that seems like it would be his thing ... the urination thing, I mean.

... although, Trump in a furry outfit would be pretty hilarious.

Didn't tRump say something about "draining the swamp"?... Toxic sludge flowing out of a pipe with Donald Trump's hair, eyebrows, collar, and tie (and there are bats flying out); while a crowd of people below, one wearing an American-flag 'USA' shirt, raise buckets to collect the brown drops

Two white-clad workmen outside the Oval Office, one with '44' on his cap removing an executive desk chair, the other with '45' on his cap bringing in a highchair

Love the picture, Daniel and Grinning Cat.

The Trump-on-bottom pic maybe was NOT photoshopped. It's well known to D/S folk that many dominant men like to play the submissive in power exchange games AND PAY WELL TO DO SO. That Maher is playing the top is a stretch.

Thanks, Daniel -- that picture says a lot. Here it is directly:

(Instagram makes things difficult; it puts a transparent layer on top of the image, so you can't just right-click to save it. In Firefox, Page Info > Media helps a lot. In Chrome, you might have to look around, either through right-click, Inspect, or menu, More Tools, Developer Tools, then Sources. Of course, screen capture is always an option!)

I couldn't get this to embed but wanted to share.

Trump and Putin.

From the looks of things, DT is well on his way to imploding.  Slow motion train wreck. The senate, including some Repubs, may well investigate.  If they have an ounce of patriotism, they will do so.  Being Repub does not automatically make them all 100% pure partisan.  Many people concentrate on prostitutes urinating for him, but concerns about blackmail, with a potentially treasonous quid pro quo, are worse.  Manchurian Candidate 2.0.  True, it could be more fake news.  DT claiming that is kind of the pot being shocked, shocked, shocked that the kettle would say such a thing.  Julian Assange may be less pro-DT than anti-American, pro-chaos political monkey-wrench anarchist, and is another wild card.  In fact, the only way he can possibly reestablish some credibility for being supposedly unbiased, while having been one of the many straws that broke the Clinton camel's back, is to expose more dirt on Trump.

It's going to be a dirty and painful time.  I advise all to try to find more focus on what makes you happy.  I will not waste what may be my final years, on fear and loathing and anger and resentment about this thing I have no control over whatsoever.  My aim is to be happy regardless of what happens.  Even if that is playing violin on the Titanic, it makes it better.

Four great comments in a row, thanks Grinning Cat! The one about twitter goes well in Media Issues too, and No Nonsense.
