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.

The orders are priceless. Lol
And I, for the last two weeks, haven't been able to get through to McConnell at the Whitehouse. I wonder why the call volume is so high ;)

The name "Trump" need not clutter our communications. We have more noble and credible matters to which to attend. "45 POTUS," or the "Republican Party" make understandable references.

Bernice King (youngest daughter of MLK) quotes "some wise advice circulating", including:

  • not even naming tRump ("45 will do");
  • focusing on his policies, not his orangeness;
  • supporting artists and the arts;
  • being careful not to spread fake news; and
  • taking care of ourselves.

Also, she suggests assigning his actions to "the Republican administration" or "the Republicans". "This will have several effects: the Republican legislators will either have to take responsibility for their association with him or stand up for what some of them don't like; he will not get the focus of attention he craves; Republican representatives will become very concerned about their re-elections."

The imnature little boy in chief, stuck in unreal reality.  Much more scarey than Chauncey Gardiner... his very evil twin!

Ohhhhhh, GOODIE!  That may wind up being my next most favorite gadget after the Church Sign Generator!!!

Comment by Daniel W on February 6, 2017 at 10:05am

Whew!  Took me about 30 minutes to figure out how to use this Executive Order generator.  Still don't know how I did it.

US citizens who'd like an easy way to email their senators to object to "Fascism Forever Club" Neil Gorsuch's Supreme Court nomination, look here.
