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.

It's funny Cruz's ad is promoting how trustworthy he is, when he's been called out for campaign dirty tricks.

Two great headlines in Patheos' Progressive Secular Humanist:

Glenn Beck: God Killed Scalia For Ted Cruz

Christian Conservatives Claim Obama Killed Scalia In Pagan Sacrifice

Put them together and Obama must be God.

Joan, I find quite a few good cartoons in the comment threads at Friendly Atheist and Joe.My.God.

Quote of the day (Barry Friedman):

The GOP has turned amnesia into performance art.

Carl, Great cartoons; where do you find them?

SCANDAL: President to nominate Supreme Court Justice / In a controversial move, Obama plans to nominate a REPLACEMENT for Scalia! [Obama pointing to the Constitution] “Um, THIS says I’m supposed to...” / [Beatrice Bamboozler, Center for Nakedly Partisan Priorities:] “A PRESIDENT doing PRESIDENT STUFF in his final year?! TYRANT!” / But wait! Justice Kennedy was confirmed in Reagan's last year of office. [picture of Anthony Kennedy with red “no” circle-slash] Clearly he's ILLEGITIMATE and his rulings must be voided. / ...Including the one that made George W. Bush president, which voids HIS appointees... [pictures of Roberts and Alito with red circle-slashes] ...giving the court a 4-1 LIBERAL MAJORITY! [tiny Clarence Thomas thinking “Uh-oh.”] (Jen Sorensen)(click to enlarge)

According to Republicans, this part of our electoral process needs more regulation... [poll worker with 'VOTE TODAY' and 'PHOTO ID REQUIRED' signs, looking skeptically at a gray-haired, elderly woman using a walker] And this part needs less.

Thank you, Ruth, I couldn't find this Discussion Forum. You pulled it out of the ether for me.

Courtesy of The Daily Kos:

You know that “TrusTed” logo? The one with TRUS and TED merged, yet separated via different colors?

Turns out that when you Google “TRUS”, the logo at once becomes hilarious and hilariously appropriate:

"A transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) is an ultrasound technique that is used to view a man's prostate and surrounding tissues. The ultrasound transducer (probe) sends sound waves through the wall of the rectum into the prostate gland, which is located directly in front of the rectum."

Yup, that’s the very top Google result. Basically, it’s an anal probe. Which makes us even more certain that he’s actually an alien.

Well done, Ted!

The problem with those questions to Republicans is that the answer for most of them, according to Sanders, is "TAXES" ... as in raising them.  The "T" word has been verboten since Grover Norquist decided that his side of the fence should NEVER EVER RAISE TAXES, not for nobody, and he has gotten entirely too much of the GOP to agree with him.

How we get those jerks to quit kneejerking, I don't know.
