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.

One more cheap shot, that I'm not above passing along: someone on another site observed that the "T" in Trump's name is silent.

Here you go, Joan.  It was a page back:

Loren, can you give me the citation on "The Clinton 'GOP (not a) Scientist' commercial"? For some reason, I can't find it. 

Ap-preciate it!

Grinning Cat, I enjoy your posts on this page; puts a little laughter into the ether!

Bertold, I enjoyed (that isn't the right word but the best I can find right now) the piece on Scott walker: 
"Now that he's running for president, Scott Walker, the goggle-eyed homunculus* hired by Koch Industries to manage their midwest subsidiary formerly known as the state of Wisconsin, is doing his damnedest to keep up with public affairs." 

~ Charles P. Pierce

*homunculus, noun, 

 a very small human or humanoid creature.

o      historical

a supposed microscopic but fully formed human being from which a fetus was formerly believed to develop.

Now that he's running for president, Scott Walker, the goggle-eyed homunculus hired by Koch Industries to manage their midwest subsidiary formerly known as the state of Wisconsin, is doing his damndest to keep up with public affairs.

I think Walker may be the vilest of the whole putrid parade. Whenever Charlie Pierce types Walker's name, he appends "the goggle-eyed homunculus hired by Koch Industries to manage their midwest subsidiary formerly known as the state of Wisconsin"

The guy was caught cheating in his run for student body president and kicked out of his college, and he's been lowering the bar ever since.

Speaking of "a wholly-owned subsidiary of Koch Industries":

"Scott Walker agreed to take a pic w/this guy whose sign said 'Walker 4 president,' but then he flipped it around..."

Scott Walker with a guy holding a sign that turned out to be a “check”: “July 16, 2015 / Pay to the order of Scott Walker $900,000,000 Nine hundred million dollars [for] Presidency [signed] Koch Bros.”(Sabrina Siddiqui on Twitter, picked up by TPM LiveWire and also reported on by the Washington Post, which credits Tyler McFarland and Giselle Hart (posing with Walker) and 350 Action for the "prank" with a serious message.)

Passed along by a friend: "GOP Now Needs a Circus Train"

(Vintage black-and-white photo of men loading elephants onto a train car, relabeled 'THE G.O.P. & CRACKPOTS COMBINED SHOW' in a florid 'circus' font)Hit the link for the blog post from "Just an Earth-Bound Misfit", who suggests organizing the primary like an NCAA basketball championship. "Of course, some won't go away. Both The Donald and Scotty Walker (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Koch Industries) have a lot of money behind them, so unless they fail at the "fall-on-the-floor-frothing-at-the-mouth" level, they're not quitting. But this still might cull the herd somewhat."

These are the very best the Repubs can offer as candidates for POTUS?

Donald Trump. Jeb Bush. Scott Walker. Mike Huckabee. Ben Carson. Ted Cruz. Marco Rubio. Rand Paul. Chris Christie. John Kasich?

Sorry, my computer continues to have an echo; i.e. a restatement of a statement I copied; i.e. Ruth's statement is an echo:

"I'm trying to convince people that we need to rewrite articles of incorporation so the entities we invented can't privatize profits and socialize costs in the future."
