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.

If the Tea Party psycho ceramics stay home,  that would be such a relief!  (Don't tell them that some states allow Permanent Absentee Voting....I've been doing that for 20 years now.  MUCH easier!  Oregon has vote-by-mail only....they get more returns, and the counts are more accurate)

Segueing to another sort of TP, here's a graphic I saw on the web, credited to Americans Against The Tea Party. This meme deserves to be spread far and wide among them. (Click to enlarge.)

ATTENTION TEA PARTY - OBAMA AGENDA ALERT! When you go to the polls and they ask for your name and check you off in the registry... it's really just a way for Obama to get your name and address so he can send people to take your guns and put you in a FEMA camp! DON'T VOTE! Save yourselves from the dictator and stay at home! (Spread the Word! Please share all of your Tea Party friends

My mother only went to school through 8th grade, but always read everything she could get her hands on, and loved playing with words.  I guess it was contagious.

My first year with Holiday, she sent me a postcard from Marineland in Palos Verdes; her handwritten message was, "Witch chewer ear."  Took me a while to figure it out.  Duh!

Interesting segway from TPP to Toilet Paper Party to Koch bros. to Georgia Pacific. 

I love the way your mind works, Felaine! 

Comment by sk8eycat on June 11, 2015 at 9:01pm

Whenever I see "TPP" I think "Toilet Paper Party."  Sorry.  I can't help it....we've used "TP" as shorthand on shopping lists since I was a baby.

and the Koch bros. DO own the largest TP company in the us...Georgia Pacific.

"We establish no religion" billboard perfectly states what it is I want. It is not often I can say something positive about Reagan. On separation of church and state, I agree!

Ruth, excellent and clear description of TPP and reasons why it is not a good agreement for people, the environment and the Earth. 

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on June 11, 2015 at 8:26pm

This little video about the TPP is easy to understand.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on June 1, 2015 at 3:57pm

That's a great one from St. Ronnie. (Too bad the crazy old prick didn't put his money where his mouth was.) This Ayn Rand crack would be good as well just because she's the idol of so many tea partiers:

I'm against God for the reason that I don't want to destroy reason.

--Ayn Rand

Hey, gang!

I have recently become a member of the Northern Ohio Freethought Society (FFRF) and we're gearing up to get in the GOP's face next summer with one or more billboards.  I am proposing that at least one of 'em be based on THIS:

FFRF will work up a different graphic, of course, perhaps similar to the ones they did with other presidents, but I think that for the RNC, this is PREMIUM!  Any thoughts?
